Since I haven't seen a thread like this, I decided to start my own. When you hear a certain name of an art program (i.e Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop, Krita CSP) what do you think of them? are certain programs better than others? Does an art program being expensive make it better than another, or can a free one be just as good?

yeah, I can't believe apple pencil needs a battery plus charging times. S Pen also has the freedom in that aspect.
this is safe right? i know m0nkrus is trusted and all but i'm just paranoid
Is there any way to create subfolders for CSP brushes?
Everyone and their mum use either uncia or m0nkrus and m0nkrus teaches uncia (passively aggressively) whenever uncia can't figure out how to fix something on the latest update and since these links come off m0nkrus' site the hashes shoud be correct
Ain’t my potato, but I’ll consider cracked since I have no issues with PS either

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.

Thank you anon, I just got my basics badge and I'm now doing the 250 box crucible.
Holy shit that's real
I laughed my ass off whenever I make shitty art, I've been getting angrier lately at it. Thank you for making me aware of this. Now I'll go back to just relaxing and having a laugh.

soul but different character
hey op i posted that image of the small face guy

the guy above me is right: regardless of your lack of knowledge of anatomy composition, you have soul. soul is something i wish i had more of. you're doing something right, and whenever we poke fun at people like you, we know deep down that you can make it.

This is unintentionally great. It’d make a really charming art style
see op? Your colors are perfectly fine. You just need more loomis
Thanks, anons, I really appreciate it <3

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice.
We should not have to make new threads or post in the Drawthread with our fundamental exercises.


1. screenshot the image and post that instead
2. change camera capture settings to something smaller
3. send to computer and resize in picresize.com

There's a new (and cleaner) sticky in town! You can see it at:

Take your time, you can do it.

Guy posted some traced dragonball Z art for our final in 2d design. My teacher was too much of a cuck to openly critique it either. If I can find the screenshot I took I'll post it lol
To be fair, Gottfried Bammes also has a similar teaching method for beginners I think.
enjoy burning yourself out in college, Anon
I’m left handed and I went to STEM
>internal cringe
if you dont believe in what you do why should anyone else?

How do you know if you're good enough to offer critique for someone / redline them / correct them?
Redline their piece then ask yourself if you would embarrass yourself if you posted it.
Just do it anyway. If your redline is a downgrade then anyone will see it and you won't be hurting anyone. The worst that can happen is anons will laugh at you, so who cares?

observe the real world.
get small sketchbooks and aim to fill one every month with random visual diary stuff - doesnt matter if they look pretty they are license to experiment with different pens, different styles and drawing techniques.
the important part is working on your observation skills.

Anyone got any tips for using COPICs?
Or book/video recommendations?
Treat them like a lady. Keep them wet and work fast and they will be happy. If you go in while they are dry, they will start to bleed and get blotchy.

Use smooth thick paper and it will keep them tight and give you good control. The rough thin stuff dries them out too fast and makes them bleed.

Drawthread aka /draw/

prev: >>4984601

Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others! Don't take anything personal!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, downsized to around 1000 pixels wide, rotated to the correct orientation, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one.

neat :3
Thank you Anon! I'm really struggling at measurements.
There are a bunch of different ways to measure. In portraiture, especially from life, using a grid or ruler isn’t feasible. Most portrait artists use sight sizing or pick a reference measurement such as the width of an eye. Plumb lines help you measure out the angles of features and shadow/light shapes.
what was the working resolution?
I thoughtlessly called it low res when in reality it is working res, just saved in a lower quality jpg to conform to 4chan's image constraints

In other words my desk is plenty big, I just have a lot of equipment. I probably couldn't fit any larger desk into my room.
Nothing in your budget. Xp's 15.6 Pro comes close but wobble is a given for 3rd party. Save up another couple hundred for a Cintiq. The Wacom One has too many performance issues.
damn i was considering the wacom one. thats a shame. what kind of issues?
If 10" is a big enough drawing space for you, and you're on PC, look into the Galaxy Tab S6 lite. You can use it as a pen display for your PC with the Super Display app, and obviously you can also use the creative software native to Android.

Super Display is pretty new, but it works well enough in my experience that I'd suggest an Android drawing tablet over a dedicated pen display. The S6 Lite is will fit your budget and has a better pen than other pen displays in your price range.

thinking about trading in my ipad pro for a galaxy s7+
>hate ios in general
>csp is on android now, strongly prefer that and infinite painter over procreate as well
>with the discounts and shit, it'll only cost me 350$
>comes with a free controller and s-pen which is a nice bonus
i really dont see any huge downsides to doing this, except for the fact that some of the money i sunk into the ipad already will be completely wasted. still a sacrifice im willing to make.
