Hey /ic/ Could you please help me?
How to draw like pic related. Look how smooth/tender looking this skin and clothes are. I have no problem with drawing and lineart but when it comes to shading it is really hard. I am using krita btw.

I'm not OP, but thank you for these! Very helpful.
Just use the brush in Photoshop. It automatically applies color temperature and light direction to forms.

/beg/ beckons
thanks anon some of them are nice.

i cant use photoshop anon. Do you know what is the krita equivalent of this brush?

It's a joke video, dumbass.

I technically do traditional only and the further I go, the mroe I feel I can't do anythign digital for the life of me. But I think I fit the class clown the best probably. I have a tendency to draw some short funny storyboards. Though usually mroe shitposty than slapstick.
They all look like the art of someone who’s just started developing their own style. Makes them too indistinct to be relatable.

How do I leave it?
Understand that in order to develop you can’t be afraid of making mistakes. Mistakes are nothing to worry about as long as you understand and correct them. So just keep challenging yourself with new things to draw, you’ll fumble at first but get up and think honestly and critically about why you fumbled and apply what you learned.

His anatomy is bad? It looks pretty passable to me. No six fingers like Sakimichan.
Not everyone do art to mindlessly appeal to masses for money. Shocking, I know.
If you just want social media success, there are far more efficient ways to whore yourselves
Do you think she can zip her sweater, or is it impossible?

The style is shit

What's some of the worst/strangest art advice you've heard?

- Never make custom shortcuts in Photoshop or other applications because if you get hired by a studio you will have to use the standard settings (??)

- Not a single professional draws without reference ever. No one can draw without reference

- You get blacklisted in the industry if you draw "sexist" waifu stuff

>Never make custom shortcuts in Photoshop or other applications because if you get hired by a studio you will have to use the standard settings
i don't use photoshop but surely they have export setting to file
are waifus even sexist though? Lots of professional artists have done pinups and I don't see how drawing waifus would be much different
how the fuck do you think cavemen did to get their black for drawing on the walls
Of course they're not that's why there are quotation marks, do you think the kind of person who'd call them that has a single reasonable thought in their skull
>don't copy other, be original
>if it's hard it's probably not for you
It's good advice for people who are making it. Bad advice can be just that, coming from the wrong person or given to the wrong person

Ambient Occulsion - Is it cool or does it make the art look like too much of a 3D render?
Depends on the person. Cool for people who like the beauty for clear form. "too much" for people who like colors and other aesthetics. In my opinion anyway.
>>3859923 but also I think it depends on your intent, as well. If your looking for fantasy realism, it can add one more layer of realism to your piece

Any advice on designing/drawing fantasy armor and outfits? I'm not looking towards making it as an artist or anything, but from time to time I enjoy doodling character concepts and I want to get better at it. The problem is that very often I'm split on what kind of style I should go for, how realistic it should be, what sort of references I should look at and eventually it either turns into a hot mess or an overly generic ripoff of an existing design. Pic related is one of my favorite character designers when it comes to humans in armor. I really like how his designs manage to look both fantastic and retro sci-fi at the same, sorta like the older final fantasies do.

If you want historical references the Osprey books are god-tier and at this point cover pretty much every armed conflict in world history in an utterly autistic level of detail.
There are mega.nz links in the Big Sticky, /asg/ threads -and other threads i forgot which- full of fantasy rpg artbooks. They are incredibly usefull for inspiration, look it up.
Thanks, I'll definitely go check them out. Any advice on finding out my own style and figuring out what kind of aesthetic I should go for? Even with that many refetences I'm still not sure what I want from my designs.
You will be able to design better as your understanding of clothing, human anatomy, perspective, and applying construction improves. Your style develops as you draw a lot (of character designs in this case). What you want to achieve basically is something that you need a lot of time invested for it to slowly shape up. Let's say you drew every generic from tactics ogre multiple times, used refs, did all sorts of clothing and armor --- you'd have a better understanding of what you like about them and what makes them work and had a ton of mileage in the process, after (and during) which you apply it to your own stuff.

Is this good art?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Looks like what some younger people who are starting to get serious drawing do. Not really bad, it's nice and says "I'm trying some stuff"
This. I mean, I really don't like it, but it looks like the person drawing it is actually having fun (unlike /ic/) so it looks like a good future ahead.
its homestuck art, so no
It's okay I guess?

I have the book, bought it last year, but it didn't come with the DVDs. Would be great to have desu.

Not many animation threads on /co/. Seems like /ic/ is the only place where some people are actually interested enough in the animation process to try it out.

are coloring pencils for children?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I tend to like the ones marketed towards colorers because they erase, somewhat.
no it's for autistic photo copiers without an ounce of creativity
Children and posers who cant into paints or digital.
Art markers are for tryhard posers.
digital is for soulless faggots
I like using them on watercolor but pastels are just better.
