Is there a Bob Ross style show but for portrait and figure paintings?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
joseph todorovitch's NMA course is like this for portrait painting. he has a nice voice, though it's more instructional than bob
okay but have you ever tried to paint along with bob ross? it's very fucking easy.
Yes, it is. Have you tried doing what he does from imagination like he does?

This forger got his own show for 1 season before he died from lung problems. They were going to send him to prison but he got away with it by never officially forging the artists names on his works as someone else did and in the end he was too sick for them to bother locking him away.

Are Blast Furnace plants men or women to you? I think of them as Giant Neutral Wombats. You're driving along at night at 100 km/h and suddenly you're in a tree dead and the wombat walks it off.

Pictured is the coking / quenching dump process. It looks like a short stack shitting cum into the sky.

I guess that's difficult because you've captured the thrusting basis of a mill, but they sit like giant monsters at the edges of cities. Which is why I said wombats. Were they women I'd imagine them as a doggy style fat woman, eating men and shitting steel. Squat huge and devouring.

The ecstasis in your shot isn't really present, they are interior, closed rather than open.

Weird, I’ve worked at blast furnaces for a decade now, they are neither man nor woman they are suffering engines and I may never be truly happy again, lots of cool reference photos I’m too lazy to ever draw though
As I said, I think of them as giant lazy demonic wombats that eat men and shit slag. They fart sulphur over my life. I love them because they are inhuman and have always been there hurting me.

Otoh Arc furnaces are kawaii and smoldesu.

Thoughts on this book? Seeing the Chinese students in the other thread draw a still life for their university exam is making me realize I don't actually know anything about drawing. I've only done characters, and never a still life, and I'm thinking that this is holding me back on my ability to paint, compose, and depict various materials and textures.

So... has anyone here worked through Harding's Lessons on Drawing?

>It’s like that lady on youtube who spent 2 or 3 years doing Watts then vanished and came back with nothing much to show?
which lady? the illustration lady on youtube? she's not a beg, she's decent and she works as a professional illustrator
Becca Rand, I think. She did disappear for several years, but she posted recently, I see. Wish her the best, desu
All she did was copy Watts and didn't apply any knowledge. I remember her buying an Asaro head but the work she showed even after getting it were just studies of Watts' Asaro head drawings.
yea that's the one. her illustrations are fucking soulless, but she's good at drawing. and she seems like a nice person too.

>Even in Vilppu's private school, there are students who have been drawing for 10 years, taking classes with him for 10 years, who are still pre-beg.

how dude? I don't believe this. is it possible for you to post their work? I firmly believe that unless you are retarded mentally, anyone can achieve int status. maybe these are wealthy dilettante trustfundies who never practice.
I won't post their work, because i don't like doxxing people. But they exist :)

Unfortunately "seed planter" doesn't roll off the tongue
That doesn't make any sense.
If you're minimizing gardening as just throwing random seeds all over the ground, then "architects" just nail pieces of wood into the ground and call it a fence.

The second Comics and Random Art Battles (CRAB 2) tournament will decide (again) the fate of the multiverse. OCs from multiple image boards will be kidnapped by the Gamemaster, put into teams and take part in many extreme challenges to obtain a single wish, whatever it may be!

Is your character up to it?

[spoiler]A year ago in /co/ I organised the most successful OCs Tournament event with guests from various boards (20+). I think it's time for a sequel.

How do I participate?
Post your character and write that you are participating (one per author).

Do I need to know what happened in the first part?
Not really, but I'll do a recap at some point.

Are they individual or group duels?
Characters would sign up and, depending on the number, teams of 3, 4 or even 5 characters would be formed. Last year we had 4 teams of 5 characters.

That's not that hard, so long as you sequence properly. Draw the top layer first, then second, then third, then last, ez.

Something harder would be if they were woven in between each other.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

Not my finest work. The amount of random detail in the rust and chipped paint was overwhelming, At least it sort of looks right it you squint.

What's a good way to practice picking colors by eyesight only?
Ive been trying to replicate colors from images, artworks and IRL but my palette is always way off.
install the eyedropper module
stop being a fucking chud and just choose proper abstractions of reality. unironically watch sinix' ass, mouth and eye anatomy quicktip videos 10000 times until you de-chud and start having fun with colors instead of agonizing about what the "correct" color is like an INTP brained cuck.
there is no correct color in art but if you're going for realism look any video on light refraction and reflection

being bitter is the first step in the GMI path
I compare my art to AI art.
I’ve always saw it as a passion thing. People who have started drawing late seem to have more drive and passion, because they can compare a time when they didn’t draw to a time they did and are still in the honeymoon phase meanwhile dudes who have been drawing forever are like old dudes who have been in a married relationship for decades. When I look at people who learned drawing later in life I wonder how it must feel because drawing probably pretty exciting, drawing just feels like something as normal as eating and shitting to me.

Isn’t there anything on that isn’t about BOXES?
Yeah, form and shape.

How do I break out of the shackles of lineart? I want to start doing lineness, but can't exactly pinpoint how to do it. There's a few tutorials I found on YT but they don't explain the process very well. All I understand is that since there's no lines you have to do more separation of light/dark and colors with shadows, highlights and value must do a good contrast with everything. But how do you know what you highlight and what you don't?
Any tips?

Looks alright for someone who is just learning lineless painting could you be more specific on the problem.
>>But how do you know what you highlight and what you don't?
This is based on the light direction the object is highlighted from. You can pick the light direction and build the highlights on the object based on that.

If I couldn't already do it, I'd get the course.
should i get the course?
Looks promising
2 paths lie before you.
Choose the course, learn from a pretty damn good teacher.
or choose nothing, teaching yourself, are you a good teacher of yourself?
What will your art look like 6 months from now on each of these paths? Choose wisely.

If you keep to yourself and set all of your characters to private, nobody is really going to bother you and it is an useful website for storing character art and the like. However, if what you want is to socialize, then I doubt that you are going to get along with any of the users there. In my 7 years there, I have only seen 3 or 4 males.
Then is better for me to steer away anyway. Not a lot of female centric sites on the internet they can only be their female retarded self that doesn't get all political or is about social ladder stuff. I don't want to intrude and affect the culture with my BS.
other anons have said the same already but yeah, the social aspect of it sucks but its great for storing images/information about your characters. you can even private everything so you don't have to worry about anyone else seeing your stuff if you'd like
i drew someone's oc for an invite 2 years ago and i haven't used the site since
