How often do you make actual pieces instead of just doing studies? How long had you been drawing before making your first piece? Should one wait a certain amount of time before doing actual pieces?

Not that guy, but I don't think you understand what raster means.

>paints rastered photos
>calls it pieces
yep. Acrylic on canvas panel.
>Even calling it studies should be considered a crime because you don't learn jack from rastering 300 memes.
I don't think I know how to raster anything. Is this a translation error or are you retarded or what?

And yeah you learn a whole fucking gaggle of shit. Learn way more about everything than you do fucking drawing anime tiddies on your tablet you contemptuous bag of liquid shit.
whats the point in all your supposed learning if youre just going to do the same shit over and over again. all you seem to do is paintings of reaction images in the same style.
I don't make studies. I never really have. I might practice but usually I'm making art as a piece of art.

>whats the point in all your supposed learning if youre just going to do the same shit over and over again.
Kind of a false premise tbphwyf. I kind of don't do the same thing twice. Like every painting involves different approaches and order of operations and spearments.
>all you seem to do is paintings of reaction images in the same style.
I mean it is MY style though. Nobody else really does an acrylic layering approach to producing memeschlock portraits. so I got that going for me.

And idk I just don't care about things that don't involve people's faces.

I bought a Trump dress shirt years before he announced that he was running for president. Now it's like running a political ad whenever I have the shirt dry cleaned.

I have been thinking about getting a tattoo and I like this design. It has symbolic relevance to my life and I think it would look good on my upper forearm, but I am not sure where the image came from. does anyone know?

shut the fuck up dude
>It has symbolic relevance to my life
You’re a lion kang with an itchy heart?
no, primarily it would be a tribute to my dad who killed himself when I was 9. He was depressed and didn't talk to anyone. this would be a reminder to me that it's ok to have a soft side and to wear my heart on my sleeve. It is also a reminder to stay wild and true to myself, live my life, to be king of my domain,
not to compromise for anything or anyone and to go after the things I want ferociously
theres better ones on this board... the blue eyes one is particularly nice

I'm completely new to art and i wanna start learning but exclusively digital, are there books for noobs to learn the basics? i tried w/ic/i but it had no steps to where should i begin and which book to read before another so i am lost. I can only draw stick figures but i wanna draw like every other person and i am fully aware that i won't become good fast and i can accept that as a truth.

do you even know what drawabox is?

>Learning to draw is not like learning mathematics
What does that even have to do with drawabox?
It specifically tells you to freehand everything and never autistically plot out vanishing points.
Personally I like how the lessons are structured. I also find the format and the presentation way better than in Peter Han's video lessons.
Does anyone have Peter Han's dynamic sketching lectures? Outside of the free ones on Youtube.
C-Can I get a link please?

lmao /ic/ has got to be the most delusional board on 4chan

you can post 10/10 godlike drawings and people will still shit on it.. hilarious 2bh
>That's why it looks like garbage.


how deluded can one get?

Post your art... It will never even come close to this..

lmao keep coping
I saw this guy a couple of times on stream. He actually does a rough preliminary drawing for the proportions and positioning, but it's barely visible on cam because it is very light. Still impressed how he can do it so effortlessly. While I don't care much about copying stuff, I admire how he sits down for roughly 5 hours and finishes a drawing like that in one single session.
Pretty cool but I already have a color printer.
Construction lines are just a tool for learning. If you still need them then you haven't practiced enough yet

What is the general consensus on Dali
47 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
See? Told you morons he was a misogynist.
he's also religious somehow
Umm, about that.

The painting may represent Dalí's severely conflicted attitudes towards sexual intercourse and his lifelong phobia of female genitalia right at the cross section of meeting and falling in love with Gala. When he was a young boy, Dalí's father exposed him to a book of explicit photos demonstrating the horrific effects of venereal disease, perpetuating traumatic associations of sex with morbidity and rot in his mind. It is said that Dalí was a virgin when he met Gala and that he later encouraged his wife to have affairs to satisfy her sexual desires. Later in life when his paintings turned to religious and philosophical themes, Dalí would tout chastity as a door to spirituality. This piece has been compared to Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights.

I did this one in the Infinite Desing android app, which is also vector based. My tablet was slow as fuck by the end.
they all look like shitty clipart a child drew, btw please make your posts smaller the images are way too fucking big
This is why you don't do character art with vectors holy SHIT
Oh yeah I forgot to apologize for the size, I realised to late.
The drawings are bad because the artist is bad, not because it was done in a vector program.

I can't enjoy art anymore (this includes books, movies, etc.) because my obsession with critique has made me see art as a math problem with objective value. I don't see pictures or stories anymore... just products to be dissected.

Does anyone else have this problem?

this is what happens when you have no creativity and no originality.

I made this yesterday its sick
As long as you keep working at your art and keep evolving your interest in art, this will eventually disappear.
But before that happens this is a perfect opportunity to check out new and different things!

Go through those artsy classics that you probably haven't bothered with before!
For visual stimulation I sincerely recommend Tarkovsky and Bergman. They could also teach you a lot about composition.
Yeah it's actually not that hard to get into at all.

Not very gratifying either btw.
you're in the intermediate part of the journey.

once you get good you'll stop thinking so hard about the objective things and your creativity and abstract mode of thought will return.

tried drawing, and am having trouble with photoshop (cs6) and making smoother lines. tried moving it to krita, but even after the troubleshooting steps, my old wacom tablet has a lot of issues and requires restarting the app often.

looking for advice or software recommendations to finish my crappy drawing. I'd like to trace it with some digital line-smoothers until its perfect

pic related: this is what I'm looking to try, but they are using ipad app adobe draw, and I dont have an ipad.
