How is this style called? I usually think of it as a "Procreate art".

I don’t want to sound arrogant. There’s a reason why y’all stuck in beg level. You guys need to learn art history and study your masters.

The flat graphical style originates from Mary Blair.

I think that OP's art style (picrel), which you link to Mary Blair, is distinct from the Alegria style people are talking about, though they're pretty similar. I know of someone who makes a living doing the Mary Blair shit and they do literally do almost all of it on Procreate, which makes it funny that OP calls it Procreate-style.

Alegria seems more sterile and Illustrator/svg oriented. Fewer gradients, no backgrounds, flatter and simpler colors and more shape-designy rather than jerking off with adding hairy Klasky Csupo texture to everything with basically no regard for composition or shape design. Alegria is made to look "good" on a web page rather than, uh, on a Society 6 print I guess.

As an aside, is it worth spending a week learning to draw gangly faggots so I can do commissions for local newsletters and coffee shops? Is it a good practice in general to just get good at whatever clueless retards recognize as being popular?

Oh yeah definitely. I made the mistake of buying a hard cover sketch book because I feel like every page needs to look decent. I'll get over that though

honestly between the build quality, pen improvements, and the touch pad, the Pro is worth the extra $25.

or just turn off windows ink if you have that on
it's some shit to do with windows ink for sure though

dark medieval or medieval inspired art, so can be actuall gothic, romanticism, or modern art.

germans because they do not know how to have an appreciation for life or to have a genuine happiness other than getting drunk.

Honestly rendering is still so fucking hard for me and I have no idea what im doing, this anon here says its extremely easy by breaking it into shapes first and then rendering it. But I still have no idea what to do and my render tests still end up looking like shit. If anyone can explain this to me I'll post what useful shit I have saved away.

And if you guys have any references, tutorials, or classes you want to recommend or post for rendering feel free to post those too.

How does he do the color at the end? I've never understood how these people can go from gray to full color and have it not look terrible. I can only get decent looking colors when starting in color.
mostly layer blend modes and gradient map fuckery

i feel like its cheating because you dont really get a fine tune on color, but i also suck at color so much that it probably doesnt matter for me personally. fast and decent > long and probably not great

The original actually has a big H in it with a tiny エツチ underneath which basically means naughty acts in Japanese.

It is 1 point perspective. The background was photobashed. And because it was a photo the perspective was off due to the lense of the camera. If he didnt photobash and constructed the scene he would have known that the buildings are wrapped.

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?
107 replies and 10 images omitted. Click here to view.
The amount of lag trying to paint in CSP is horrendous, even on a pretty amazing machine like mine.
>Isn't CSP better suited for comic and such?
Yeah. It's not reeeeally made for paintings or general image editing, its focus is line art. Probably explains why it isn't optimized for big canvas paintings. Remember that it used to be called MangaStudio.

I started making my own as well.
Checking out tablet input in qt right now. Everything seems like it's going fine.

Anyway when I hear the name of basically any art software I think unusable.
Photoshop may as well be mspaint for all the reliability of their tablet input. Something about windows ink dependency and there's literally no way to fix it.
GIMP isn't for drawing or editing.
Krita is just another piece of KDE crotch necrosis. Tablet pressure works fine though.
Corel Painter is a mole on photoshop's ass. They can't design funtional software either.
CSP is garbo for painting, brush editor isn't made for humans and the toolbox is completely trash.
SAI is the closest out of all of them to being a decent art program.

I'm getting fucking tired of software so I don't know if I'll even finish this.
SAI has a good interface, the jap just forgot to make a usable brush engine
do you have a website or anything for your program so we can check it out or get updates?
