The difference is that the “5 min doodle” thing discourages other artists and inflates your ego. Saying something is a commission when it isn’t doesn’t really hurt anyone.

Last thread:

As some of you may know, Drawr is getting shutdown on Dec 12,2019 for good by Pixiv corporation. This would mean that many artworks not found anywhere else will be lost forever. The site has been an analog to Pixiv since 2008.

There are currently rumors of some efforts being made to archive the site, but nothing has been confirmed so its probably not going to happen:

Drawr website: drawr.net

Make an account, give a try. It will be gone before you know it!

If you decide to share any artwork from the website ITT, be sure to leave a link to its page so others can watch the process video and find the artist.

Hey guys I want some art friends to shitpost with on a daily basis, like maybe adding you on [spoiler]Discord[/spoiler] or something like that.
Where should I look for actual decent human beings to share a sense of camaraderie that want to improve and put on the work daily but are /beg/ or /int/ tier?

its not a secret that most comic artists and people who do primarily ink/pencil stuff cant paint that well.
even masters such as John Buscema and Franklin Booth didn't do that well with colors.
now i love fine art and at the same time, I love the idea of comics and drawing with inks
but i feel very confused.. Is it possible to focus on two things at a time?
or do i have to pick between ink or paint?

The crabs of /ic/ hate him but its only because his mastery of precision linework is too based.
his style is just very strange, he's one in a million type of person if we're talking technical prowess but his entire clean up routine makes for something really unorthodox which I personally love

Why is it so damn hard to draw lips?

I was trying to draw a joker smile on my Fleshlight Barbie. God damn.
Adding teeth would help. She looks like an escaped meth head.
The tongue should be either less pronounced or under a nice set of chompers.
Also study face masking in vfx and notice how the lips interact when stretched/pulled over teeth.
Why she have a fleshlight coming out of her face?

How the fuck is Oda able to draw like this without an construction and nothing looks off.

Even when I try and thuoruly construct my characters I can't get them to look nearly this proportional. Is construction just a form of "Training wheels" until you just memorize how it's supposed to look and can draw characters proportionally? Even Araki uses minimal construction and only really makes a rough outline and has a direction for the face.

Is it purely experience that allows them to do this?

It's like the most popular comic ever so he has a million staff.
After you learn to draw front, side, back and 3/4 views, you realize construction is a meme and you had to do was memorize the shapes.

What did I do that all of a sudden my photoshop has started lagging hard as fuck? Literally any input (mouse or tablet) is very sticky and delays detection of the next input by up to a second. CPU usage goes up to 40% when making a brushstroke or even just panning on the canvas or moving a layer around. It's completely ridiculous. Even at tiny file sizes, after setting photoshop process to high priority, turning off all other programs etc etc.

I'm completely at my wits end. I've already wiped my drives completely off any traces of photoshop, and reinstalled it. Same problem. I've cleared tons of space from my hard drive, same problem.

What the fuck? Please help guys I cannot work like this...

Have had this before.

When is the last time you checked the temperature of your CPU? Thermal paste can weaken and if there's a poor connection between the CPU and the cooler it'll overheat and throttle your machine.

Get software that shows you the CPU temp, if it's over 80C when you're drawing then you need to deal with that first.

Weather changes made my cooler have a poor bond and things got like what you're describing. Reapplying thermal paste fixed everything for me.
>When is the last time you checked the temperature of your CPU? Thermal paste can weaken and if there's a poor connection between the CPU and the cooler it'll overheat and throttle your machine.

you're going to laugh but I did in fact clean my fans and apply a fresh slab of thermal paste and monitor temperature while working. last time I had this issue it was indeed due to poor cooling. that was last european summer where we had like 40°C for several days. but right now it's like 14°C outside and 22°C at most in my flat.

update on op's situation:
- bought new cpu
- bought new motherboard
- bought new SSD
- bought new cpu cooler
- bought new power supply unit

yeah, that's how serious I am boys. I'm literally down $1250 and rent is due in two weeks. wish me luck. also fuck my life.
I've had this problem before, and the way I solved it was to tinker around with the cache settings & other stuff in the performance tab. Allocate a good chunk of RAM but don't overdo it - you need to reserve some for the rest of your system to use. Bumping up to 32GB DDR4 RAM has been a big help in responsiveness at very large canvas sizes (8000px+)

After doing that, things got better. However, I'd occasionally run into the brushstroke lag you described. I discovered my issue was layer styles. For example, trying to draw while >any< layer had a stroke, or a drop shadow, or a color overlay or anything that had to be rendered like that made my brushstrokes lag like crazy. The solution was to simply rasterize (Right Click on Layer > Rasterize Layer) and that literally fixed all my problems.

It was a solution for me - might be worth checking out if you use these types of layers.

that is some excellent advice. based on the fact that you work on 8k canvases you're probably quite serious about your art so i'm immediately compelled to believe you know what you're talking about. gonna tinker with those settings now. speaking of memory allocation. also I think you're quite on point with the memory, apparently fast and sufficient ram is one of the biggest issues for photoshop professionals.

my former poop tier rig:
- 1300mhz 16GB ram
- 1000 RPM 1997 hard drive (no joke)
- i5-2500k CPU
- absolute dogpee stock cooler

my new godmode chad rig:
- 3000mh 32GB ram
- SSD (they don't spin I think, so zero rpm lol)
- i9-9000 CPU
- $50 cooler

Not only that. You also get a raw sense of satisfaction if you compare your old sketches with your recent ones.
buy a lightbox, it will go a very long way
meanwhile tape the drawings to a window and tape the other sheet over them
you can trace in pencil and then ink that drawing
I used to do that all the time lmao. Not to get a copy of a drawing, but for different stuff. For example if i want to make a drawing that is symmetrical, i'll draw one half and then copy it from both sides. Or sometimes i make a drawing, then realize it's too small for my tastes. So i scan it, print it bigger, then trace it. I have a special plastic transparent box that i use, much more comfortable than drawing on a window.
