I don't see the appeal in making LAS more than it is by spreading it across not only other boards but also other sites
I for one only joined to start drawing every day, and it worked. I don't know what magical expectations you have, but whatever those may be, it's your own job to fullfil them
Not him but that's great, we get it you draw everyday. My thing is, why is this on /ic/? I never see anything posted on these threads other than blogging about muh feels and shitposting. It's nothing but a chatroom with no productivity whatsoever; again that's great you draw everyday. Take it somewhere else?
I could see your point if this were occupying space that was needed for something else, I do agree the threads have devolved into blatant shitposting and retards fishing for you's
the difference to a chat room is that we're all still anonymous, and I personally prefer it that way
I'd probably leave if I had to deal with attention whores like tripnigger in some chatroom or god beware a mumble or discord group
Or you could, I dunno, just filter these threads and fuck off?

What even is this supposed to be-

Is it just me or is Artstation goong down hill, popular artist and fanart are the only things featured.

I went browsing and found some decent artist not featured because they dont do a lot of fan art or aren't "popular"
Post em here then, give them some traction
Best site out there for digital Art honestly. If you want big industry names search for the yearly Intothepixel mentions.

Artstation is a Deviantart that Culls the weak. Not perfect but does a very good job of presenting good artists.

highlight is actually a direct reflexion of the light.
In the case of pic that corner being highlight is right; but if it were a ball for examlpe, itd be between the viewing point and lightsource.

Whenever i paint with my brush in CS5 it leaves white highlights, no matter what color i choose. What is happening?
Steve Huston's new figure drawing book

It's ok, he brings a lot of good concepts and ideas to the table and the way he explains stuff is really nice. But I wish I got the book when I was more of a beginner since I've learned pretty much all that he talks about in the book. Unfortunately, the book stays relatively shallow. While the book is aimed at beginners, I feel that the book is too shallow. It goes into construction "just enough"....it goes into rendering "just enough" there's not enough for me to justify recommending this book to someone who has experience in drawing.
I mean it's STEVE HUSTON and I want to hear all that he wants to say, but this book doesn't cut it for me. I just hope he releases a painting book.
But hey don't listen to some random anon on 4chan. Do what you want homie.

I will say:
This book paired with hampton and then an anatomy book from bridgman hogarth peck or winslow is the best setup to start as a beginner.

read any basic Film making books, concetrate on the type of shots topics

don't read any how to make comic books to make comics, they're bullshit.

get your favorite comic book/manga as reference for paneling.
Could you recommend one?
That face of she-hulk in # 4. Like it though. Almost every frame has a different composition than the last. How long did it take you?
Why is it based off of an issue of John Byrne's She Hulk though?
Not him, but this has a lot of info on storyboarding, you might find it useful.

Last thread: >>>2531058

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings. Most importantly, rock on more shoujos!

Drawing circles is hard. Would it be a bad habit to rely on the circle tool in krita?
How am I supposed to get better at drawing them freehand?
11 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Almost forgot, start small then work your way to bigger circles. Or just draw an easy small circle then enlarge with transform tool or similar.
Draw then quickly and use your elbow and shoulder instead of your wrist.
1. Don't erase
2. If you do erase, use a gum eraser
Hold a rock our something heavy in your hand, train your hand/arm, back muscles as if you where training for sports.
Everyone who posts these type of threads please listen to >>2543053

Why are you plebs so obsessed with these circles and straight line exercises? They're useless. If you're drawing/painting, still lives for example, the very act of doing that will make you draw better over time.

You're never going to make if you're so obsessed with learning a minutia aspect of something to the detriment of the big picture. Just go paint still lives and learn all that shit and more at the same time rather than compartmentalizing everything.

a year from now your circles will be perfect but that's all you'll be able to to because you never learned anything else.....great job.

Is /ic/ the most honest and therefore the greatest art forum on the internet?
53 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.

Oh and I know all the basic recommended resources by heart and more. I will give beginners that are better than me because they actually draw advices and links to drawabox, Proko, "Keys(...)" by Dodson, I will tell them about Gurney and David Hornung and how to make color studies, I will tell that limited palette is better for plein air and to google for Zorn palette or to take such and such colors from Gurney book...I even recommend "Skillful Huntsman" for character and environment design.

Hell, I can safely say that I became skilled in shitposting and masking myself among other people who actually want to draw and earn money as popular tumblr artists doing porn rule 34 with dickgirls.

I mean, the resources aren't bad but I hope this is a false-flag.
Why would someoneone who hasn't drawn AT ALL do this? I'd get it for a person who used to draw and doesn't now but why?

It isn't. Well, what can I say - I post on various imageboards nearly daily since 2008. I wanted to pick up a hobby, thought about painting, but still there's a few months till I can sort my shit out with uni and job and think about it more seriously/actually do stuff.

And I like doing research prior. So there's reading a bit, analyzing, watching what mistakes don't do at the beginning...and voila, now I grew into body of /ic/ shitposters naturally.
Honesty isn't worth much if it's not backed up by knowledge.
But knowledge isn't worth much if it's held back by dishonesty, so it's a trade off.
