are there any good guides? everyone always says to learn to make them yourself, where do i start with this?
fuck, I wish I was her...
Download other people's brushes and play around with the settings while referring to the manual.

Ctrl+Paint and Wootha also have a nice tutorial for it on CGPeers.
I always prefer to just modify brushes people already made to my personal preferences. Especially because I don't feel like making brush tips.

I remember this being a decent tutorial about making phtohsop brushes though.


I think maybe the real reason some people say to "make your own" is because downloading a big brush set from a artist you like can sometimes be overwhelming.

Maybe all a beginner really needs to start with is a soft brush, hard round brush, flow brush, and a square brush with a texture.
>I think maybe the real reason some people say to "make your own" is because downloading a big brush set from a artist you like can sometimes be overwhelming.
They're usually shit and artists don't actually use them. It's also obvious when you lean too heavily on trick and custom brushes you haven't adjusted properly. The way someone uses a brush is a fingerprint, doing your own thing with someone else's presets can lead to a mismatched technique.

It's almost exactly the same experience as using someone else's physical brushes and paint. It's not for you and you're doing it wrong, please stop.

Looking to create a bootleg dynamic sketching group. Anyone up for this? We go on location like people taking the actual cgma class do and we share it to each other, offer tips, etc. We do the weekly homework han gives in his lectures and we try to improve as much as possible together. I already started alone and love it but with an actual community it would be a lot better.
Who up?

Sounds like the FZD general, wonder what even happened to that.
Sigh...I still hate that asshole.
What happened?

Long story short some faggot who I won't name took what I built and played me like a fool. Reminded me of my old days in grade school. It matters not anymore. He's quit art for graphic design, fuck him.
What did you build? How does this relate to the general at all?

Pick an image or theme, breed them, then draw it and post your result:

The only thing missing is the ability to put in your own images. That would legit be super useful for iterative concept art
more like a blob dog desu
Creepy ass geyser dog thing.
You can't put in your own images but you can combine things from a bunch of different categories. I sometimes use it for prompts when I can't think of anything to draw. It can be pretty good for finding random compositions to work from as well. Pic related was a tulip, explosion and hot air balloon think.

What do I need to learn to be ble to play wih color like this?

Well, one is a bright sunny day so you know the light will be yellowish with a cooler shadow influenced by the blue ambient light. The other one is probably an overcast day so no major cast shadow and all kinds of crazy white raylights from the snow boucing in all directions, making everything cooler.
Go outside for starters. What exactly are you looking for here? A formula? For what cartoon? Realism? What have you tried so far? How many studies did you do from the pic you posted? What did you learn from it? Did you try changing the time of day/whether in the pic you posted? Why not?

"What do I need to learn to be ble to play with X like this?"

Fundies then a whole load of effort. Then maybe, it's up to you. No one can teach you how to paint, people can only point out where you fucked up. If you posted your study maybe one of here could help, but other wise you'll get some theory without knowing if you're doing it right or wrong.

Don't be a pussy.

Margot Cry About was worked on with pict related which had been started in year one but really hadn't been meaningfully worked on unitl year 2, when it got bunched up with the other depression maymays.

Also maybe the start of the dark green=depression, light green=mania motif.

Also the painting i think of on mornings light tonight where no amount of booze does anything to put me down. Have had 26 shots in this waking period. Still not tired. Just drunk and hungover and manic.

ill post a few pieces, i try to draw everyday but nothing seems to be helping so the clear problem i need to get better.

Depends on how you draw. It is not per se a problem with speed. Or you could try to cheat a little and use vectorization - it tends to soften wobbling but at the cost of some details.
Lol is she kneeing her chest
Your art is barely above /beg/. You do lots of bad choices in composition, values, gesture and anatomy. Your designs are terrible and your subject matter is uninteresting. You also inject your fetishes into your work. Your best bet is to make porn.

Op your page is confusing.

Panel 1. Establishing shot. Ok, good perspective. The goons are too stiff and they all look the same, add variety to body proportions. The girl is too small, so it's not clear what she's doing. another small panel with a close up to introduce her and show what she's doing is the best option.

Panel 2. It's not clear that this guy is dressing as superhero, we only see the boots, but maybe it was required on the script. I don't like the shot, you cut both the torso and the left foot, and from that angle we should see the floor. It seems like he's flying more than trying to keep balance.

Panel 3. Fucked up perspective, the goon is too small. The expression of the girl isn't convincing, she looks perplexed or annoyed.

Panel 4. Fucked up hand anatomy. She's supposed to be scared but it seems almost like she's gently knocking on the door. The bg is non-existent, doors have little details that make them look like doors, indentantion and such. Also there should be the door for the other bathroom on the left.

About your inking in other drawings: search pencils done by other artists and ink them.
Your lines are shaky, especially the crosshatching. also you should use a smaller marker for lines that are inside the figure, or draw bigger.
Person who drew >>3769646 here, I'm not OP I'm just a rando who happened to have drawn from the same script before. I don't know if you were factoring my page into your critique for OP but just in case you were I thought I'd let you know they were drawn by different people.

Weird question that popped in my head /ic/: Do artists who create anime characters ever use real people as models? Like take Lucina for example, do you think she's in anyway based on a real person, or is she just solely an amalgamation of various anime influences along with the artist's style?

There is 0 artists or at least 0 of those who "made it", that didn't use some sort of inspiration for any kind of art. Look at different interviews of creative people and all of them are passionate about movies, comics, art, photography, architecture, books, games etc.

Or simply said, they feed the brain with creative juices produces by others, all the time.

For example, in 1:35 of the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwpLv3ZhC5M Atlus’ character designer & illustrator Shigenori Soejima mentions his inspirations and where he picks from.

Sorry will do
Actually look at pictures of hands and study them.
Search pixiv hands and Krenz hands on google and pay attention to the examples.

Please don't be that guy.
Whether in art or in any aspects of life, don't shift your blame onto others or things you can't control, take people's advice, take responsibility, and do things in proper order.
If you feel like you are done in art, please refrain on making a thread crying about how it's your genes or /ic/s fault for not allowing you to become an artist.
If you feel like you are not progressing, make sure you have the basics covered before you move forward. you wouldn't try running before you learned to walk, you owuldn't try juggling before learning how to hold, catch and throw. be mindful of the steps.
Please remember almost all good artists you see online are half a decade, a decade, 2 decades and above deep in art, and with growing life expectancy you have several decades left to keep honing your art skills (some people pick up art in their 60s, 70s and 80s etc, there's no reason for you to complain in your teens, 20s, and 30s)
Please don't blame younger artists and faster learners for being "more talented" they worked hard for their skill and they don't deserve it being thrown out as "plain talent"
Keep working hard, and don't be an /i(n)c/el

"WOW ANON your the best artist i've ever met"

probably cause regardless of skill, you might be the only(and by default best) artist they've ever met. Either that or your really fucking bad and they pity you lmao.
Some of us make art for ourselves, and don't like people thinking that they get to have an opinion on it.
That's the most autistic, sjw "privelege" logic I've heard yet.

You confronted someone based on their goddamn opinion of your art? How thinskinned were/are you?
