>Attractiveness is not completely subjective or we wouldn't have universal standards.

Yes it is, just because most people in a given area agree that something is attractive doesn't mean that it objectively is. Everyone has their individual tastes that may not correlate to the "universal standards". Different parts of the world find different things attractive. There is no universal standard.

So you're underage?

I got a hand down macbook pro from 2010, not exactly the ideal computer for digital art for its age, but i got it for free so whatever.
My main PC is stationary, so when im on a vacation i cant really do digital art. So when i got the mac i had in mind that ill use it for art.

But since its so old, all modern art programs lag quite a bit, especially PS

So any of guys got some recommendations of any programs that'll run smoothly on old macs? Thanks in advance.
mypaint, sketchbook pro, medibang
your options are limited since that is running on an old version of macOS. not sure if that macbook can be upgraded to Sierra at least
brah i have a shitty blocky laptop from 2008 with 4 gb of ram and it can run photoshop cs6...
Same but Clip Studio.

>art programs lag quite a bit

The models from 2010-2012 versions, you can open them.

Just buy an SSD and more ram (from 4 to 8) and you'll be fine enough to run PS, Clip Studio and anything else at the same time.

If you don't like the idea of having OSX, go to Boot camp, install a version of Windows 10 and voilá, runs better (even better than a tricky build-in Windows PC because Apple really cares about Windows performance in their shitty macs for a reason).
Lmao. Theres asian people making great shit on a 400x400 screen from 1980 and u complain about ur free macbook. Fucking white people

Someone can help me with something? Maybe I draw something for you

tnx, I'll check those out. :)
You shouldn't be on any forum as a beginner.
The only advice beginners ever need to receive is to draw/study more.
If you're incapable of self-critique then you're NGMI. You don't have to be a good artist to know when something looks wrong.
but people that have gone trough the beginner phase, can give their perspective, the resources that helped them and the tips that helped a lot, right?

like the stuff u wish someone told u when U were a /beg/
The only thing I wish someone told me as a /beg/ is to just draw more.
The other important stuff I found out in the resources I was learning from or through my own experimentation.
/beg/s just need a good starting point. Something to send them in the right direction, which is what the sticky is for (theoretically)

I'll start:

/B/e patient but i don't know how to draw a good face and evry single part of it
pls help
draw one, then we'll see what you can improve on.
look at a style you like and try and match what they do. If you like aldoori's work he has tutorials on how he does the female face. It should help you out when you start.

Post your artwork in this thread and I will compliment it and tell you how good you are at drawing

Just how important is "construction"? I feel like I'm wasting too much time trying to get construction right and getting it wrong instead of just drawing.
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.

It's hard and necessary. No one said it was easy.
Construction is a concept just like anything else so you have to practice it. For example, when you start with perspective you always plot out the vanishing points and draw your forms with a ruler but then after you learn how to do that you can move onto estimating perspective and freehanding it. Eventually you don't really need to plot everything out unless the piece requires precise perspective. Same with construction. You should always practice it but after a while you'll internalize it and you'll automatically figure out where to place things or how the forms should work together. At this level most artists stop using the rigid construction taught in books (block men) and go for a more loose and gestural construction. Which is basically applying the same concepts as the mannequins only in a quicker and more efficient manner. So it's important to learn and practice construction even if you wont necessarily use it exactly as you learn it.
construction = drawing anything that looks 3D from imagination
not op, also a newfag.
what is loomis?
What do you people even mean by "just draw". Just doodle random shit without any sense of perspective and volume? How does that help anyone getting better at art?

i had to make multi-layer map for project, did native flowers n bees in their relative regions of texas (i’m a visual communications freshman, never had any training in painting)

me trying to do painting artwork... i don't get it how people do :/
I hate shitposting. There is no reason to shitpost. Stop.
I used to struggle with the same thing. My tip is to start with grayscale, use a hard round/square brush, and do some studies to get a good feel for it. It's a gradual process but eventually you'll get there.

I cup my balls while I'm drawing.

It makes me feel safe and secure and makes me draw better.

What are some of your drawing habits?
40 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Make sketching motions with my hand even though I'm not drawing anything
Like using the pen thats in her vag or drawing n just having a pen there?
Cuz unless that pen also vibrates or shocks i doubt it would have any effect by just being in a vag....most tampons are thicker than pens.
Also i think u meant draw...cant actually paint with a pen...would have to be a paintbrush of somekind
When I'm thinking I frown and constantly stroke my chin like I have a beard but I don't and never have. And if I'm having trouble with a pose or expression, I pull a weird face as I imagine myself doing it even though I don't have a mirror.
I don't draw in public much, thank god.
how much would you pay me to paint a flower with my vagina?
