Serious question. Do people still play Overwatch?
I only play for the seasonal skins.
So you play just to buy loot boxes?
I recently stopped because the toxicity is so bad. You can actually get banned for playing certain characters in a normal fashion, it's pretty terrible.
Can you please explain how you can be banned for just playing a character?

Any final tips before I merge all the layers and start detailing/un-detailing the piece and putting in sum effects? I'm fucking sick of looking at this piece. Had a hard time figuring out what I'd put in the background... Ehh.

Forgot all my fancy effect layers. Oh well what ever. I just think the composition reads a little better with some stupid highlights on the shark dudes face and shit.

Personally, I like the wide shot at the bottom. Is this a study or something? I don't get why you'd put the guy right at the border of that light box thing. It's a completely unnecessary tangent. I'd say get rid of any characters and just try to paint the buildings. Again, it's hard to say anything when we don't know what you're shooting for with this shot.

Fuck, is this 3D? or are you using 3D model as base?

Yep. Sculpted the base for the shark dude in ZBrush. Pic related is the half way composited version of the dude... I hate the look you get form 3d models so I'm probably going to be overpainting even more of the dude when I've merged all the layers. Really want to learn dat ZBrush properly some day.

Memory leak. Either go call adobe or wait for some cuck who paid for it to.
I wish it were a memory leak, right now it's in the brushlag state one a fresh blank canvas and it's taking up almost exactly one gig, I have 20+ free for use. Photoshit has so many problems for different people that it's a real bitch to troubleshoot.
Just get CSP. I'm not going to pretend it has all the features, as the only plugin it comes with is a mosaic censor with a lot of options, but it does everything else better than photoshop. The brushes work like you'd expect them to, the pens are pornographic, the pencil is almost something like a real pencil, there's perspective rulers and models and weird manga shit just like the real thing and other shit I don't use but when I do it's less than 5 minutes on youtube and I come buckets because it fucking works as expected. There's screen tone. Colors.

I don't know how you use photoshop to do anything but edit photos. Seriously consider switching. My life is better for it. I'm down to using paint.net,, CSP and the real thing. Painter if I'm drunk enough.
I would if I could export CSS from it. I wish I could draw well enough to do real art.
You don't have to draw to do real art. It's mostly a healthy balance of painting, drugs and alcohol. Your pain comes through in the brushstrokes.

redraw it; but focus on making the waist right first


i dont see the point of this really. The ed was drawn so perfectly, you cant top it, and if you just wanted to make her naked, this isnt an 1:1 copy. I guess you did as a study

this is really fucking gay. but you draw feet nice.

Got more but this site has a size limit - hit up the DA.

I got a hand down macbook pro from 2010, not exactly the ideal computer for digital art for its age, but i got it for free so whatever.
My main PC is stationary, so when im on a vacation i cant really do digital art. So when i got the mac i had in mind that ill use it for art.

But since its so old, all modern art programs lag quite a bit, especially PS

So any of guys got some recommendations of any programs that'll run smoothly on old macs? Thanks in advance.
mypaint, sketchbook pro, medibang
your options are limited since that is running on an old version of macOS. not sure if that macbook can be upgraded to Sierra at least

To be honest?
Envy, spite, and pride are probably the biggest obvious factors.
There is also the desire and passion that comes from creating something that is truly my own.But that isn't nearly dumb enough of a reason as the first ones I said
Also the desire for me to find some kind of meaning and happiness in my life. There is also the love of escapis.lm, that I can just get lost in drawing, creating things to distract me from my fucked up brain and crippling existential depression, despite having a pretty good family

what would you guys recommend drawing to help with drawing robots/cybernetics? are there any good tutorials on them? thanks

Do you have a blog?
No problem dude
And sorry no i mostly keep to myself for now
Depends on what kind of cybernetics.
If it is stuff like prosthetic limbs, study up on medical anatomy. Look at how things look without skin, examine how things work and move underneath. Study the motions of tendons and muscles, then compare that to how those would work with rigid structures like hydraulic/pneumatic pumps, joints, etc. Deus Ex has some good study materials as does Full Metal Alchemist. There's a couple scenes where the cybernetics get blown up or torn apart and show how it works underneath the plates.
For stuff that is more like apparatuses on the body like what you have in your picture, look up any kind of gritty cyberpunk scifi type artwork. Stuff like Cyberpunk 2077 or 9 with its creatures like the Cat. There's also the card game "Netrunner," which is pretty good with it's artwork.
Ghost in the Shell is good, too.

tl;dr Cyberpunk 2077, 9, Netrunner, Ghost in the Shell, Deus Ex, Full Metal Alchemist, medical anatomy books, mechanical engineering books/manuals

You don't have to trace/rotoscope in order to study animation, but either way it's definitely helpful. Just do anything, no reason to limit your approaches to learning.

Studying animations and drawings is great but never trace anything for study. You completely bypass the part of your brain that analyses shapes and translates what you see onto the paper.

The quotes in the image and below are about tracing photographs but still apply somewhat to tracing other peoples animations. You aren't learning skills you will need to be an animator if you aren't thinking and feeling out the gesture/pose/action.

"In the case of using live action as a basis for animation, the animator soon learns
that tracings of photostats will not suffice. Here is where his ability to understand and
draw gestures really hits pay dirt. I have seen scenes where photostats had been
practically traced, and the scene was lifeless. One of the reasons for this is that live
action actors do not move from extreme to extreme as animated characters do.
Studying live action clips will reveal that many actors mince through their parts like a
cloud changing shapes in a breezy sky." Walt Stanchfield, Drawn to Life.
Yes, and they Dick didn't like the color so he order them to repaint the whole shot.
If you think about forms, and underling gesture it can be useful. If you study it just as contour lines, you'll learn nothing.

>If you think about forms, and underling gesture it can be useful. If you study it just as contour lines, you'll learn nothing.
That was what I was thinking.
So, I tried myself at "copying" (no tracing) this, just tried to get the body movement right.

I left out the hair and extremeties for later so I can try practicing the way they "follow-up" (is that the way its called?) after the body moves.

Junji Ito sticker on box, where get?

Frazetta once said that he copied all the drawings in bridgeman's constructive anatomy book within the span of 24 hours. Now, I'm pretty sure that almost none of y'all have the work ethic or craziness to do something like that. With this group, the goal is to copy 10 pages a day and complete the book in 3 weeks. The book is 217 pages long.


You guys on here on always asking for short cuts to improvement. I truly believe that after completing this book in 3 weeks, you would see drastic improvements in your anatomy skills.

Extra credit:

Warm up with gesture drawings. This will prevent your figures from getting stiff and allow you to apply your knowledge more.

Apply copies to life/imagination/photos. Don't just copy the drawings, if you copy a bunch of bridgeman hand plates apply that by drawing your own hand and trying to see the musculature.

Mindlessly copying art of someone else isnt going to teach you jack shit except you'll get better at drawing those specific poses.

I can see that the core point of this thread is that you want to be good at anatomy and like anything you want it fast.

It's also clear to me that you haven't learnt what it means to truly take life seriously in attaining what you want.
Copying 10 Bridgman pages a day sure is romantic but it won't help you improve, you may feel like a champion doing it but after you've gone through the whole book and haven't learnt anything you will have only fooled yourself.

Imagine yourself back in school revising for your maths exam, you've got two weeks to go so you think you'll take it easy and give yourself a good foundation on the basics, but when it reaches the final few days you stop caring about that nonsense and start grinding out the trigonemtry and calculus that you hate doing. Recall that feeling, that feeling of cutting out all the bullshit thoughts and finally sitting down and doing what's actually important and in a way that you will actually remember it.

Apply that same mindset to your anatomy studies, learn to be serious.
Bridgman is hard to read, use it in combination with easier to understand books like Anatomy for Sculptors.
You know how to study, if you draw 10 pages a day you know you will burn out, do as much as you can manage to think effectively. strain your skills by drawing from imagination and in different poses instead of just copying. Take appropriate breaks and exercise to hone your mind so it's sharper. Get enough sleep.

The goal here is to learn anatomy, not get a high from foolishly pretending to be Frazetta.
