how the fuck do you even 'use references' for something like this?
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
do rough composition, plenty of individual figure studies, use your figure studies and rough composition to do tighter drawing, start painting, hire models to do some specific shit if you run into problems

you are a dickweed
I'm sorry, you didn't inherit the gonnamakeit genes.
I forgot if this was Ilya Repin but it at least looks like another Russian realist, and if you look at Ilya Repin's work on google images, almost every part of his big paintings has been made before, as studies - paintings or sketches- so that the final image is basically a collage of all of these sketches but reinterpreted in the context of the final composition
The lighting is quite realistic though; I'd assume they put together some ensemble sessions for global studies and shit besides individual studies with each model

Autists were sperging in the other thread, so here is a new one. This board is really going to shit.


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.

Would it be a waste of time drawing simple shapes like boxes over an artist I like work. Then try and acturately copy the rest.

I'm trying to learn another artists style.
I see a lot of old paintings have nice yellow tinted palletes going on. How much of this is actually just aging?
Can someone help me out with this shading? It seems off. Maybe no highlights on the belly?
top right light source on the head, bottom right light source on the rest of the body
Also the orange and blue color stick out like a sore thumb
I have to draw a few background for a visual novel kind of project.
Is there any ressource on simple but pleasant eye-level environment?

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

Open Services (windows). Stop wacom service. Start Wacom service. Open the Wacom drivers to ensure they are now working. You might have to unplug and plug your tablet back in again too.

::: SHORT-TERM GOALS EDITION ::: What's a goal you hope to achieve this week?
45 replies and 28 images omitted. Click here to view.
You've really got something going for yourself and I really enjoy some of your stuff, but it seems the main thing holding you back is your inability to finish anything. You should work on sticking with pieces a little bit longer and seeing them through to completion. Everything comes across as an unfinished WIP, and just begging for some more hours to render things out to a higher level of polish. In other words, it doesn't look loose and implied and painterly - it just looks unfinished.

Seeing work through to a completion is something that a lot of people on /ic/ struggle with. If you can prevent yourself from abandoning work halfway through, then I think you'd be able to better work towards your art goals (whatever they may be)
yeah im not going for loose and painterly i just honestly fucking hate rendering and get so exhausted trying to work on these big pieces...
I'm going to try to finish that piece as well as two others im working on

rendering is so boringgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg FUCK
Why don't you try other style like cell shading for example if you hate rendering? I was like you years ago and I made the switch to other simpler style since rendering's not my cup of tea. Never regret it since then.
because im addicted to self improvement so that i dont go insane from being alone. I cant convince myself to enjoy drawing and i have to outperform everybody younger than myself
i wasnt joking when i said that i want to die
I did the same thing. I enjoyed a more painterly workflow for a long time, but I found myself consistently frustrated with the rendering process, and knowing when a piece is done. I gravitated towards more simple, graphic work and I think I've been much better off for it. Different strokes for different folks.

If I have a great idea for a comic but no skills to draw comics
should I do it anyways? Or should I keep honing my skills until I am capable of making it look like a legit comic and not amateurish?

e621, exhentai etc. all have tons of comics made by people who are not very good on a fundamental level, but they make their comics anyways, they gain traction and get better over time
one example would be Akatsuki Souken, I could argue that I can draw better than this particular artist, but even though his art isn't fundamentally well drawn, it's still hot as fuck, interesting and very distinguishable
I am torn between whether I should just improve myself or go instantly to making comics

>If I have a great idea for a comic but no skills to draw comics
if it's porn it doesn't matter
you could draw a stick figure with two blobs attached that vaguely look like tits and you'll get thousands of fans
Add a dick on the stick figures with tits and you'll double that
they more perverted you go the more likes you get, skill doesn't matter for shit
it is 'kinda' porn but it focuses more on the story of the characters, it's supposed to give you boner, but also feels
Not every great idea can carry the piece on its own; if your idea is smut-related, then you do need the art to be competent at least in some key areas. The stuff you post as an example looks fucking retarded but I can picture having niche value for a certain audience.
So it's vore, gotcha
I don't see the appeal of vore so no
