Post your prints here! Anyone talentless furfag (like most of /ic/) can pick up a pencil and paper and scratch out lines but only those who are *actually going to make it* try something as involved and creative as printmaking.

>Created a new thread since the femanon cunt in the other one is a talentless hack that only posted bullshit flowers.
Keep that flowery bullshit out of this one you cunts.

that's pretty cool, anon. looks like a small piece. did you crop it?
most universities with a print workshop offer private classes or are open to people just coming in and joining the course, depending on the head of the workshop and the capacities - there's terms where there are very few students signing up for a print course or a lot of them dropping out midway. sometimes old students can just come in and work at no extra charge. maybe you can find some way to get to talk to them, like an open studio day or something and ask if you could get a stone or a copper/plastic plate to work on. worst that can happen is them saying "no" or "you have to apply for the course". give it a shot.
(I'm not OP, it was this ravaging femanon from the other printthread posing as me) >>3271963

anyway, I DID
and i would have loved to do it some more. but our instructor was this stubborn old man with a really annoying dogmatism and he'd bully you out of the workshop. he'd start to change your plates, temper with the press, leave you alone in there and go home, although he left the place in a mess and generally was unsupportive af. would've loved to do more etching. can't anymore, no more access to any workshops.

do you have etchings?
It's a pretty small work. Only about 6"x8" or so. I've looked into it, I might see if I can't audit a few print making courses at the local university, but I imagine that would be very difficult since the local university is one of the best in the entire country.
>but I imagine that would be very difficult since the local university is one of the best in the entire country.
ok, well, i guess the people running the workshops are still human beings. if they are friendly and open to it, they might let you try things out. you can say you are interested in applying, but you aren't sure if it's your thing yet.

I just noticed this proportion error in all of my drawings of heads. The side plane is always too wide. I'm very confused by this, because I am using the Loomis/Proko method, and always work from a perfect circle (circle template). Please help

Nice Walter White
Have you considered the possibility that you're not drawing them too wide, but drawing them too short?

Fancy, complicated constructions won't help you much if you don't nail larger proportions first. You certainly do not want to use the as a guide if you have an inexact grasp of the angles involved. Decide length and width first with a single large shape, then fit those constructions within.

Keep in mind that the skull is far from being a perfect sphere in real life and comes in all sorts of different shapes. The only reason you do the Loomis method is to practice how to get the perspective right and with a rough scaffolding for the actual drawing. You don't actually learn anatomy by practicing Loomis heads. That you learn by drawing real heads and skulls.

I finally figured out what he meant by this

My problem was when I used the grid method and this method, I would have y and z down, the verticals and the vanish point lines, but not x. I just just needed to draw x on each little spot, whether it be towards the vanish point or not on each section of the "box."

I feel pretty good about my figures now and they feel more grounded on the planes they're on
still got a ways to go but I'm able to construct form my imagination!

why is the /ic/ community only made up of beginners and anonymous posting illustrators? why is it always impossible to discuss 'Art' with a capital A on the internet? is there something about spending a lot of time on a computer that filters out artistic minds?

Don't worry about age. When i was in art school (at a state uni, not private art school so i can't speak to that) there was a LOT of transfers and ppl who decided too pursue art after doing something else. One woman had a successful corporate career and still came back (was absent or late a lot tho). Another woman had a teenage son that would tag along sometimes. Apart from that, many people transferred after doing 2+ years in a different major or school. Don't worry about your age.
I pretty much only post here when I'm on the shitter and have nothing else to do but fuck around on my phone.
i come here to shit post with the horde and talk about construction, when i want to talk about artistic merit or history i go to the gallery or the art house theater

I genuinely think he made the world a better place through his art, and that's the best thing anyone can hope for with their art. His personality and TV show was a part of his art.

A great artist.
But look at how many colors he is getting out of those strokes. You'd have to do more bullshit if you were working digitally.
i want to try to paint along with him but im afraid it would suck and disappoint his ghost
Your reluctance to try and fear of failure are what's disappointing his ghost.
god you're right i will be better for his ghost, ive always wanted to try the one he did for the colorblind viewer

how to find it

idk im good at realism gridded photo bullshit
i guess the world needs murals ? thats my experience anyway
i've been paid to draw hentai
and i like just doing zen like studies of shit/landscapes

is the answer to ikigai (why I get up in the morning) to draw realistic allegorical but risque women in front of landscapes as murals?

it would explain why the majority of fine art has been that
I wouldn't take life advice from a country of unhappy, drunk workaholics and a literal suicide forest.

over generalization is a bit too n the nose for my tastes. America is no different, yet everyone considers it the paradigm of success.

>do studies, read books, practice stuff I like
>make good progress, make some art I am proud of (albeit amateur level)
>get bored and stop drawing for a month
Why do I do this? I pick up the pencil but the thought of having to practice boring stuff literally hurts my chest. It's like doing history essays in school all over again.
Modernity has destroyed your attention span and motivation. Go live in a cabin
Draw things you enjoy then ya dingus
I don't want to blame this board, but this board has given me the idea that I shouldn't bother drawing things I like until I'm worth my salt in fundamentals and realism
You need to decide how seriously you want to take art.

If you just draw for fun and don't have any particular end goal, draw when you feel like it. If you either want to become a professional or at least be a serious hobbyist with a dedication to your craft, you need to start developing discipline and routine so that you can push through the boring stuff to reach your goals. Sometimes it can be boring minute to minute but long term it's still satisfying, but to reap the satisfaction you need to stick with it. Also, obviously, mix stuff you find exciting in with the 'practice'. It's still practice to draw things you want to draw, you're still getting mileage, it might just be a little less efficient than more focused studies.
No that's stupid and one isn't exactly mutually exclusive from the other, you can draw things you enjoy while still challenging yourself also you shouldn't be concerned with going professional, that shouldn't be your motivation for drawing to begin with.

I have been going on walks and drawing trees (fallen, dead, etc.) and i have been seeing a consistent pattern in how i draw them. i only draw the outlines with little detail.

Any suggestions on how i can make them more like actual real trees? (i don't really use a-lot of color other then a black ink pen)

wow thx here u go
that's aquarell paper, m'lady. why do you use it for a drawing? do you plan on coloring it afterwards at all? if not, it's a waste.
well i was until i realized i didnt have any water color. So now im just tying to make it as detailed as possible. and i need help with hat.
the uneven structure and grain of the aquarell paper makes it handle a lot of water very well, not warping after drying and all that. using it just to make marker and pencil sketches on it is not ideal. you'll also easily get frustrated, using the wrong materials, as you have to press the pen harder, getting jagged lines etc. i suggest you use a different sketch-pad for the drawings.

>Any suggestions on how i can make them more like actual real trees?
it's kinda your job to find a way to draw a tree so it looks satisfying to you :[ that's the whole point, you know? just to start you off: drawing only the outline disregards the light situation. every tree on a normal day has a darker side, depending on where you stand. sometimes, the blue color of the sky is reflected in the shadow. the part around the trunk is also important to base the tree in the ground and convey a feeling of heaviness and scale.
