>What is your personal definition of art?Why do people create art?
>What is the “function” of art?
>Why is (or should) art be encouraged and supported by our society?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
what an original question OP
Never get a straight answer, as if there is none. Yet everyone thinks theyre a valid critic.
yea seems r9k rather talk about art than the art board.
>definition of art
Any creative endeavour that is the combination of technique/craft + emotion + originality/idea/comunication

>why do people create art
some people, mostly schizos and other mentally ill people need psychologically to make art.
Is a side effect of having relatives with a mental illness.

>function of art
comunicate something of yourself to others.

>why is encourage
because it makes people happier.

art is just a name for an idea, since so many people have picked their own random idea for the word it's no longer well defined.
The idea I prefer for art is, that it is a form of communication. Imagine I make a pictured inspired by a certain feeling of loneliness I have, I stranger sees that picture and feels alone. there is something very intimate that that stranger and the artist share in that moment.
If you want to find out what is good art, then ask the artist what did they hope to achieve by doing their art and if in the end they did manage to get that. if they say no, they failed, if they say yes then that is good art.

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

fwiw I think the changes you make actually make the image more appealing than the reference.

Really damn useful insights on eye shapes/placement. Jaw and chin too. Already gained a couple iq digits from that.
I know Tim Loechner but my biggest reference is @BloopArchives older stuff, it's awesome. I also discovered @poppuqn and @gimpring a couple days ago and that motivated me to sketch considering line economy.
I've started posting recently and my old stuff is meh, but sure we can be rivals. I'm posting on @LPipocin.
Cute. You're welcome.
She's hot af, fuck you anon.
I thought you were just copying the lines. You're doing great then.
In what way? I have a tendency to make things softer and rounder imo.

These remind me of the pacific northwest.

I really like this one.

This one too. The colors are great.

Would have been better without the girl but the lighting on her is good.

A bit too abstract for me.
I like this very much

A bit too amateurish, you need to study

Nice atmosphere but again, you need to study. The dog being pure black doesn't convince me, there must be a better way. You need to work on your edges I think, that snow could be a lot better.

That orange line in the middle needs to be brighter, it doesn't look like light.

This one is really good, I like it.

Anyone use newgrounds for posting nsfw art and getting commissions? Twitter just doesn't seem to want me around, I've been instabanned twice and customer support does not get back to me.
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
If you make a new twitter account, make sure you quickly follow atleast a few people. It doesn't matter if you really cared about that person or not. Just follow someone. I had the same shit pulled on me when I first signed up. Got my 1st twitter account, stayed at "0 following", got banned for 3 days even if I did the phone thing because if your account is empty they deem you as a bot.

Now on my new account, quickly followed people as early as I could, didn't have to deal with this shit

Glad it worked out for you, but that's exactly what I did on my second account. But I guess they thought I was ban evading. Well, which I was, to be fair.
It's weird and sucks that this keeps happening to you OP. I got the instaban and phone number thing when I started a NSFW account there too recently, so I linked it to my regular account and added the phone number and I haven't had any more problems so far. Even so, I'm still wary of really posting things there and I've been considering using Newgrounds too. I switched to NG for my sfw art and so far I actually like it more than tumblr. If you try it out, let us know how it goes won't you?
hey guys, just wanna say that I made a second attempt at appeal last night and now I'm no longer suspended. They said I just got caught in their algorithm, basically. So if you experience something similar it pays off to nag them
Man wtf that was a nice Medusa, why was it deleted

I know this will sound strange but is there are any discord that has an above average skill level requirement?, I am interested in getting critique for people around my level or above.

I used to post here for years but this place is too slow and has too much shitposting, especially when I started to get recognized.

On the discords I have visited the issues I have is that the overall level is quite low, I just get compliments,they fragment their servers way too much or they are basically dead

join the LAS discord, the people there do know eachother already and it cn be a little intimidating but theyre really nice, would recommend
Discord is based on slack, and both work as persistent mixed media servers with catalogued chatrooms and voip.

Everything is always stored on the server and indexed, to that end you can even make your own server and use it as a cloud storage service. Do note Discord processes everything you upload and probably sells it like everyone else.

If you wanna find a post you made you have a query engine at the top right corner and you can search for specific keywords or uploaded media. If you wanna find your last post, literally just " from:(you) #6969“

Dont expect nsyone to keep up with an old convo thou, people on discord have very low attention spans.
interesting, thank you for this info, I did a research some time ago, but never found those gems of info. I used to frequent forums before the social media boom, and I liked the community feel and how searchable conversations were, as well as taking the time to think them over and get back to them on my own accord. That's not possible with social media, but maybe it is with Discord!
No problem, but the best way to understand what discord is, is to simply use it. You can use it in-browser without signing up so just join a random discord server and play around with it.

It is in many ways an inheritor of old IRCs and message boards but not quite a replacement for Forums. After all, Skype wasn't a replacement for it, so why Discord?

Discord is a robust chat server. It's used for chatting. It's oriented at fast messaging and has limited text per post and edit functionality. You can upload links, emojis and images but it won't be as robust as a classic web forum, it's not meant for that. It's oriented for people playing games and talking together.

So in a sense of having a community, yes Discord gives you many tools to work with, such as a tag and role system, moderation, themed chats and so and so. But ultimately it's up to users to make it work, and alot of Discord's are just awful and full of degenerates. Take that into account.
Unironically helped me a lot. Thanks.

How manga manages to achieve so much movement and fluidity while western comics keeps failing to? I refuse to believe it's skill related, because even amazing western artists that are pretty much peak drawing skills still fail at this. The only answer is style choice, but why would you choose to make your comics purposely stiff and blocky? Why even during dialogues, they put such huge boxes of text in a scene that clearly lasted a second?

Just to clarify, I'm not saying comics are inferior. I enjoy both for art and story, it's just this one thing that keeps bothering me.

I wanna save this entire thing some how, it's very interesting
If nobody thinks it's a real job, nobody willt get paid enough to pay the bills. I get you, but it has to be pushed as a legitimate status wether or not you get paid enough so you can get rights. If you start telling everyone that the industry is dead, it's not going to get better because of you saying it. Not to mention many actually can pay their bills. Mangaka can do so because they can't do anything else than their job, so they spend little outside of investing into material, assistants, etc. In europe you actually expect people to have a life.
To be fair to all, comics have never been the go-to to make money even as an artist since the pay depends on the sales, and that's the same for everyone in the end
Interesting thread but the rest of that woman's Twitter feed gave me cancer. "Translator", no wonder we're seeing so many intentionally-mistranslated manga with Tumblr talking points inserted into them. These fucking robots can't leave anything pure and beautiful alone, can they?
hey thanks; I really wish there were books that actually discussed manga paneling. I'm sure there are, but the chances of them getting translated are pretty slim I guess

aim and narrative makes things beautiful
By aim I don't mean narrative, I mean that the things in the background aren't placed in a way that makes sense aesthetically. There's little direction or flow, and they don't really have synergy with the dude. In other words, I don't find the composition beautiful. Try thinking about how you're leading the eye, focal points, how to place large and small objects, effectively etc.
Not true. Look at tattoo art
It doesn’t have movement but it has unity.

I haven't find a thread like this and as I have been trying to practice comic pages lately I thought that would be usefull to everybody to share their issues and exprerience with drawing comics.

Please be nice and give constructive critique to others and fell free to post your own pages and concerns and tips.

Colors. Attempted to keep the blurred lines on the last panel but it just didn't work. Pretty much a failed experiment.
Not sure if this is the right place to ask. More of a weird screen writing question I guess.
I'm writing out my comic and I want to have characters vocalize emotions, interjections, like a character going 'Hmm' or 'Ugh". But I'm often kind of dumbfound about how to write them out correctly. For example I have a character that's forcing himself to read a book, but he doesn't know how to read, so after trying and failing he closes his eyes and pulls his head back and I want him to vocalize something like a long, frustrated and upset "Ngghhhhaaa!" but when I write it out like that it feels weird and it doesn't look like the emotion I'm picturing.
Is there a comprehensive reference of these kinds of vocalizations anywhere. Google came up with a few examples, but they're too basic
Also, what's the correct way of showing a character sighing?

how about you take a screenshot of this thread and set it as your desktop then go eat some ice cream and watch your favorite childhood memory and draw your favorite moment from that show. Then stay off the internet for 3 days and draw, come back and look at your art and then your post and realize you do have things to live for and art is good and never dies so why should you.
