what kind of music does /ic/ listen to while working?
91 replies and 25 images omitted. Click here to view.
I listen to a lot of Marilyn Manson's earlier stuff, like Portrait of an American family, Smells like Children, and a tiny bit of mechanical animals. I know, I know, it's 'edgy' or whatever, but it helps inspire me since it has the perfect balance of carelessness, shock value, and glam, and I like drawing those things.
I usually go to youtube and look up some mix or playlist, I like Death Grips a lot, I probably listen to them the most. I've been thinking about getting Pandora, but havent really found the need to yet. I'll do some research on it soon though.

whatever inspires you is best, breh, seriously, people who criticize you for having taste in music don't realize we mostly need it to keep focus when painting, especially when rendering.

Horrible dnb/dubstep or some equally horrible chill/downtempo off the Ninja Tune label.
Or drone. Or anything that provides a soundscape of dark, vaguely musical sounding electronic/industrial noises that fit a mood but are easy to ignore as they quickly turn into background noise if you aren't paying attention. Nothing with lyrics.

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.

AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

I have no words, this is it, perfect, supreme aesthetic. You have hands and eyes of the most skilled artisan, but more than that true and honest heart, for only individual like you are able to perceive and grasp the world in this way. You're special, in every sense of this world, an object worthy of admiration in this bleak and depressing reality. You're like the sun lightening the deepest and darkest cracks of human nature. Your art will become the beacon of hope for all of mankind which will guide us to the true enlightenment
Don't let their words hurt you my baby boy, you're beautiful and don't let anyone say otherwise
I love you

Is anyone here studying arts related degree in an european university? If so, where, and at what university?
Bumping. Is there an art school in Europe that follows the FZD model (fundamentals, courses, advanced theory..) rather than the contemporary subjective bullshit model?

I have to choose one within a few months and I'd very much like to avoid ruining my life.

Previous thread: >>2647250

Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, DOWNSIZED TO AROUND 1000 PIXELS WIDE, ROTATED TO THE CORRECT ORIENTATION, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one and then hug a kitten for good luck.

Resources for beginners:


/gd/ will be more receptive of this.
Pretty sure calligraphy threads usually die quickly on either board, unfortunately.

Anyway, http://theflourishforum.com/forum/ has some helpful threads.

http://www.kallipos.de/kalligraphie-alphabete.htm has some free alphabets.

Where do you find inspiration to dress or armor characters?
I want to make a females warrior, I sketched the body, but I don't know how to dress her.
I couldn't rely on existing drawings /reference but I end relying too much on them.
I rely too much on references/existing work, even for gestures and anatomy.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Inspiration comes from everything really man. It's your visual library. It's almost impossible to say, but I usually think of easy adjectives like cool, cute, etc. Then just fit to that theme. It's more a feeling thing to me more so than an actual mechanical thinking.
So you find words who would define the character and put this in his clothing?
Do you use references?
I like to draw period pieces, so a lot of the armour/outfits I make up are just bits and pieces of references I pull from the time period. It helps to do what >>2652470 says and think of a word or style and just kind of work around that. There's a lot of fashion books out there that you can pull inspiration from too. I like 'The History of World Fashion' personally
Anything can be armor

I mean like, dick armor

There, boom
That sound interesting. I'm gonna look up this book.

Mayne there are book about drawing clothing and armor.

I really like the ideal of working around and an adjective or a key word, I never thought about that

I know a few people who practice drawing (or writing) with both hands, is it useful at all? Or just some extra skill you can talk about?
I actually like left one here better. Somehow it got more personality to it.

Wait, which one is the non dominant drawing?

The left one has better facial alignment, and the symbols are in perspective.

/ic/, i think i found a way to get the cushart-styled color feel

>grab a finished piece
>copy the layer
>add that spectrum gradient map
>merge with copy
>set the mode on subract
>set the opacity on 20 percent

there you fuckin go

(dont forget the subsurface scattering)

I dont speak moonspeak but this intrigues me. anyone willing for a rough translation? we would love you forever for it
I cant read moonrunes but it looks like he's just colorizing grayscale sections of his paintings (that have been converted to masks which are applied to flats) using gradient-map adjustment layers. I can't tell if he is using any special blend modes for his layers though.

Very similar to what OP outlined, but lets him have more fine grained control of the colors.
>tfw too dumb for all this shit
I'll just pick a color and a brush and let me art look mediocre
