We judge each other based on the last thing we drew.

Leave your discord/skype too if you're brave. Trying to get serious and looking for art friends.

this is a redraw of something i did 2 years ago but it still looks god awful
My last drawing is just a sketch, so I'm posting my last finished piece here. I also made an animated version of this.

Looks very cool! It's looks so realistic, creepy and beautiful at the same time

some goes to this one

Spend more time sketching. Do a full page of sketching many heads in different perspectives for example. Simplify your head model. Make it look like an Iron-man mask, add the facial features later. Check you proportions (gap between eye = "3rd eye", etc.). Keep the perspective intact: low-angle = less forehead and top of the head is visible and more of the underside of the chin gets visible. Always draw the jawline as a guideline.

Amazing painting skills. There is really nothing I know how to make this better. Except incorporating the background more by increasing the amount of frenel/ edge reflections and adding more darkness (ambient occlusion) to the darkest areas of the hair to add more depth.

looks nice, but you should draw more naked people, the breast on the right isn't the same size as the left
looks very nice! Really like that style. Some highlights in her eyes would make her more alive, though. And I also like the colors.

the breast on the right looks OK to me. What is not correct is the shirt. It looks like it's shifted to her left. But I guess why she drew it that way. When drawn correctly it would touch the other line on the right next to it (Sinix calls those "tangents").

Greetings to you, possible initiate. This marks the start of the recruitment period for The Crooked Line- a training society for artists in the holistic tradition.
It is, most likely, not for you. The instruction is too precise. The demands are too much. The expectations are too high. Maybe you just want to get good enough to draw porn? Bless you. You will get there. Scroll on.

The Crooked Line needs more than that from an initiate. The Crooked Line is a support system for those with unreasonable and fantastic hopes for their work. If you suffer from this you know you cannot turn it off, even when the disappointment of failure and mediocrity make it more pain than joy to create. Did that resonate with you? Perhaps this is the path you seek. Art making, like any of the ancient disciplines, forces one to look at their whole self and conquer not only their hand, but their body, mind, and soul.

Initiates are given one on one mentoring, detailed critique and discussion free of charge. This is done in the hopes of producing a paragon- a truly great practitioner whose work is equal parts skill, sensitivity, and purpose. Periodic evaluations remove the unmotivated and opportunistic from the initiate ranks. Higher ranks receive greater rewards and privileges. Few make it into the fold.

Now, possible initiate, present your work and why you do it. I hope your reasons run thick as blood. If you show promise and unique drive, you will then test this representative as you wish. To build your trust. For no one treads here without proving themselves.

I did this and the perspective made easy book everyone recommends. I actually liked this one a lot more. There are tons more exercises and the author explains things in much more depth. Overall, it is a really nice perspective book.
where can I get this for free?
complete guide to drawing from life is a good book that complies all his work into one. i main;y use it to learn how to draw bodys and it helps me a lot.
copying is different from actually learning
I agree with what you said. Problem is constructive anatomy is shit and so is the other books.the only reason you get it is if you want a few more pages that complete guide to drawing from life doesn't have in it. get complete guide to drawing from life if you want a great book
bridgeman is way better imo.
also, simplifying heads to cylinders is really convenient

suck me
more like me suck
noob dog

How would one go about finding the depth in these examples?

I am studying parallel projection. In this example all the depth lines are true 45 degree lines. How can I find the correct depth for the side planes that will be equal to the front plane? (a cube)
In linear perspective the 45 MP solves this. What about in freehand perspective? Is there a way to objectively know this or you have to pick an arbitrary point as part of the "creative license"

Any help would be great appreciated. I am frustrated here.

Pic. Hope is right way up
that's clearly an orthographic view, so use the same measure for the diagonals that you use for any side. that's literally the simplest case possible. or use a 3d software, like normal people

lol what a retard
Wow what a pseud. All that matrix math and you could have just used elementary trig or algebra.

I mean people who actually have studied linear algebra will know you're retarded for trying to impress people with this.

Lmao why don't you use elementary trig/algebra to manually compute 8 points when all you need to do is input two matrices into wolfram alpha.

Why do you even need to use elementary trig when the transformation is already defined? There's nothing you have to derive anyway.


Thanks for showing you that know next to nothing. I see you've put "people who studied linear algebra", clearly it doesn't include you if you are having trouble with a fucking matrix multiplication.

We've used the "half scale" Cabinet Oblique Projection in school, because it looks the most natural.
idk what you mean by "freehand perspective". If you're talking about normal perspective, it depends on the distance from the viewer to the subject.
And btw, the midpoint in normal perspective of something going into the depth is not the absolute midpoint. You have to think about foreshorting.

If you're infitely far away from something you get orthographic perspective.

Wait, you telling me you dont draw it?
Besides the water, how doors one accomplish that style of shading/ambient lighting? Especially on the skin. It's really pleasing to look at, but I haven't seen any tutorials about it.

ITT: simple rules. I know you’ve got OCs out there, and here’s where you share them. Tell me all about them, or just post a picture. Ask for design advice or general critique. Think of this as a character design thread

What apps do you use to draw on your tablet/phone?
I use pic related on a Note 8 and it's pretty comfy desu

>inb4 not using desktop programs
>inb4 ipad pro vs android
ArtFlow is pretty comfy on my note 5, I just wish it could rotate to landscape.

What are your thoughts on street artist such as banksy?
12 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Banksy is a multi-million dollar organization created to make retarded city people think they are woke; the art equivalent of a 30 dollar Che Guevara shirt.
Worhol and banksy wanted fame, but banksy wasn’t obsessed with looks.
I always thought his name was Bansky, now that I now its not he's not so cool anymore.
he has a distinct hand, shading, and style. hes also one of the highest selling artists alive so people know
Pretty shit, but i did enjoy that documentary.

How high or low are chances of finding a decent female artist friend who isn't overly liberal or an sjw with neon dyed hair, covered in tattoos?

If it's necessary to know, I'm female myself, so no I'm not seek girls to bang. I am also more on the conservative side since I was born and used to live in a very conservative country. Just want a sketchbook buddy who doesn't get offended by everything I do.

>Wanting an artistic gf
Don't do it. You'll grow to resent one another if one of you starts to make it and then the least successful one will start sabotaging the other. It's less crabs in a bucket and more two crabs in a teacup.
so...uhh who wants to be art buddies? Might be nice to have some local pals.
gotta advertise yourself man
Local where. LA here
Just fucking talk to people. You'll find that they aren't as extremely "SJW" or "liberal" as you'd think from first glance. Ever heard of "don't judge a book by its cover"?

How would you visually represent a character whose body is in control and they are merely observing (and experiencing touch, sound, etc.) what the controller is doing?
14 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
You can do with a trailer (timecode).
Make the eye glow. Boom.
how I would do it is visually the eyes being different, the scythe eye being focused and intense while the normal eye + eyebrow (I know it doesn't fit with what youre saying but to give yourself a little leeway with expressing what you need to visually) expressing horror, sadness, shock, numbness, a lidded eye to show she's given up, etc. if you can really exaggerate the expression of the eyes and contrast them it might be able to sell it
White? Or some other color?
I was about to write the same thing. I just thought about Danny Phantom controlling other people. I think the eyes are glowing yellow or green, but I'm not sure about that.

related question, what kind of art style/shading technique is this?
Nevermind, I'm an idiot.
It's apparently called hatching
