The third time i reupload this because of fixing problems, but, here... my first digital comic, did i made it well?
Oh god, it's that retard from the improvement thread. Take a break from posting for a few months and try to actually learn to draw, because currently you fucking can't. Also, your joke is unfunny, might've worked a bit if it was a stupid meme video but not as a comic, especially with your cancerous "art" style.
very cute! :) But I'd recommend trying to learn some more anatomy.

Lazy faggots are too bleak, let's appreciate art.

I enjoy how even though painting is pain and I'll never execute a piece the way I want to, it gets all the horrible visions out of my head until more come along and I'm compelled to repeat the cycle.

i've heard you can use acrylic gesso to work with watercolor, has anyone tried it? Can i make detailed and smooth piece with it just like if i was to use good quality watercolor paper?
>image related by Maria Tiurina, no it doesn't use said techniques with acrylic gesso
Sure, it works fine. A lot of artists use gesso on paper to re-use it, or add texture, or go for a really flat, smooth finish. I've never tried it myself, but from talking to people who have, the only issue is doing large washes, you'll have a lot of difficulty doing them. If you do tight, complicated paintings with no large washes, you should be good to go.
Is more for practicing actually, i'm Brazilian, and because there's no actual national watercolor paper brand here, most of the paper is really expensive imported one that just isn't worth to invest into just to practice, but thanks for tip!

I am really fascinated about this zoom technig. It is amazing! Is anyone know how to create infinite paintings like that ? What program allows me do to something similar ? Is it posible to made this in Photoshop, and how ?

Photoshop to draw a bunch of images and some video editor to link them together
You might want to look into Mischief. It allows you to paint in vectors, so you can pretty much zoom indefinitely if you chose to.

I would like to know the name of this style of painting so I can search more. Thank y'all.
Illuminati crosshatching
It's not a painting.
I believe this is trying to reproduce the look of etchings, like the kind of art you see on some currencies.
That is a woodcut.
No, it's not. It's album art for the band Behemoth, it's the back panel for the album "Evangelion". It's most likely a digital piece, inspired by copper engraved art. He probably drew the faces and figures from classical pieces, into a new composition. The lines on the wings don't really match up with the lines on the drapery, and nobody back then did parallel lines for a background like that. See artists like Durer or Dore or Schonegauer.

This kind of work, back in the old days, was copper or bronze engraving, woodcut can't carry this level of detail.

I know a trick to generate a background like that in Photoshop, if anyone wants to play with it.

All the people calling it a scam are either too shitty to get in, too poor, or both. I can tell when a person doesn't have academic foundation.
I'm the guy you were responding to.

How large do you think graduating art classes are? I think my graduating class was about 80-100 people, and I know a vast majority of them, as you would expect to do after 4 years of spending a lot of time with them. There were some people who were really anti-social and weren't apart of the 'art school crowd' (it was an art school at a larger well-known American university), but most people knew each other, and its easy to see what people are up to on social media.

Most of my graduating class is is doing something in the creative field. Though since /ic/ has such a narrow view of what the creative field entails, I'm sure a lot of folks here won't recognize being a graphic designer, UI designer, etc. as being a legitimate creative gig. Sorry that not everyone wants to do fantasy / sci-fi / concept art. Even for illustrators, there are many opportunities beyond the niche industries that /ic/ circlejerks over.
>but you can sort of tell bcus the ones working were the ones who made the best work during school anyways.
H-how is this possible
You should really asses what your goals are with art and what careers you wish to pursue. Art is a wide gamut field with many sub fields.
Once you get an idea of what you wish to do in art, you should then do A LOT of research on that schools ability to teach you the material for that field

I'm not sure if this is the place to ask but in Clip Studio Paint how do I make my shortcut pen button on my tablet go to the pen instead of the brush?
Try here next time for those quick questions unless there's more to it. >>3238353
About the question. I'm not too sure what you mean but did you try switching brush and pen shortcuts or setting the tablet shortcuts in the drivers? At least wacom works like that.

Hi everyone, I need proof this board isn't a meme and that you all are actually drawing and qualified to give critique & advice for this field.

Can at least one of you post some good art to prove that loomis isn't a meme and that the sticky isn't a joke? The art has to be yours, and you have to mention if it was really IC that helped you, or if you reached that level by avoiding the suggested advice on this board.

I am just not certain because people keep posting art that's not theirs and you're all anonymous so that doesn't help. I am just asking for proof is all, I need to know if you're all just cons sending people down the wrong path.

Realistic art is archaic garbage that you can't make a living off of. Loomis is dead and no one wants old wrinkly men & women.

You'll be in poverty if you don't draw more modern art like anime & disney level of toons.

Download digital sketching starter kit especially, its one of the paid ones but you can torrent it if you don't want to pay. Pic related is the sort of thing he teaches you to draw, starting from the very basics of ovals and shit.
How much of this is real drawing and how much is just adjusting vectors with a mouse?

I have a small tablet and lately I tried using this setting instead of monitor. I can draw now with 4x precision and for the first time in my life the pen pressure feels just right, but my arm is tired of having to pan the screen around and I have to winkey+down every time to reach the color wheel and layers.

Anybody else use this setting with a small tablet?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
My screen is 1280x720. When I make it 1:1 but just the active area it gets impossibly hard to draw anything. The cursor jumps all over the place. I can't draw details.

But it's weird. I had been drawing with that setting for years. It's just that after changing the setting to a small portion of the screen I got used to how tight the controls feel. If I map the tablet to a larger area of the screen it now feels like I'm sketching on a cube of ice. It slides. You have to zoom to draw anything.

Smaller portion
>easier to control
>you can draw details with precision
>you can see more of your drawing since you don't need to zoom in.
>works great drawing small things with small brushes
>you need to pan around a lot
>takes more effort to draw a longer line or to erase a big area at once, fixing mistakes is a PITA
>feels heavy, sluggish
>trouble reaching menus / buttons

Yes it's called Precision Mode. It's baffling that people don't use it more often.
i think you mixed up the smaller and bigger, but i agree with most of this
Ok, so I'm going crazy.

I gradually made the tablet portion smaller until I could draw with great precision and I was like "wow this is amazing how was I even drawing before" but then my arms started to hurt.

So I change back to larger portion / monitor and I was like "how was I able to draw with this? zero precision!" and then went for a middle-size that wasn't too small or too large and I was like "yeah, I can draw like this, this works."

But in the end something just felt off with the stylus jumping around too fast but not fast enough for me to realize it was still too fast. I couldn't draw right. So I made the portion very small again and regained precision. Then I was like "yep, this is the best way. Small. Precise. The other way looks good at first but is bad in the end."

Now I'm afraid my arm is going to hurt again and I'll redo all this over again. Will I ever escape this decision hell?
Same thing. Every so often I think that changing it might be better.

>Art school is useful for those who want to create FINE art, which requires an understand of the history and critical theory surrounding art.

I think I'll stick to Wikipedia. That's useful too
If that works for you then do it, a higher education would be a waste of time for you.

I got a full scholarship to study art at a private college, if the program wants me to take a bunch of history classes then fine, it's the least I can do lol
