How do I become the person who makes the illustrations for product packages?
How do I become a toy designer?

I am really into the art on stickers,toys and illustrations on products so I figured that is a nice ambition. I am a europoor and have no degree so idk if I could still do any of these

not that anon but most freelance artists work fully remote, and on a case-by-case basis. this is super convenient for both parties for obvious reasons. so basically you're fine

you should've add more cool hues to ur shadows
The line art is more of a quick guide so I can turn the background image in painting over off and not go TOO far off the rails with where i'm placing shit. as for the shading, I think it kind of looks like a take on me quick style.

I did this in realistic art studio, I 100% believe that program has the best digital pencils of any program I have used, possibly painter is better, but i'll be honest, that program has never ran without serious glitches for me.

I think if anyone likes pencils/graphite/charcoal style drawings, you are very hard pressed to get something that looks better than this, quality of my drawing aside, I honestly believe if I saw this on its own and didn't know it was digital, I would never think it was.

Lemme guess, you did a DTIYS or some rinky dink fanart and it only got a like.

Happens to the best of us. Pick better artists to suck off to or make better art.
Why should I?

Fascinating... you seem to have invented meta-onanism.

Painter? What’s your paint/brushes of choice? Drafting? Pencils/pens, etc. Digital? Programs/Hardware

Unfortunately, my CPU is super budget and out of date. But, I also tend to use lightweight software, which works well with my CPU and makes me able to make big images anyway.
Still, the Workstation GPU is nice when using it for OpenCL compatible stuff, and Krita runs exceptionally with it.
This is false, Photoshop uses OpenGL and if you don't have a good enough GPU you're gonna struggle.
What's the darkest and lightest pencils/leads in your experience?
>a good enough GPU
Vega 8 is plenty good enough for OpenGL.
Really don't go wasting cash on GPUs as your first digital art upgrade. Focus on a good screen, a good tablet, 16+ ram and multiple SSDs. Then buy a RX 570 or a GT 710 and you'll be way beyond spec.
Question is a bit vague: lightest leads will almost always be hard graphite (nH, e.g. 8H). Darkest ones will depend on the material: charcoal, graphite, pierre noire, etc.

You can get a very light mark with a charcoal, or a soft graphite, but this isn't as direct as with hard graphite.

Is it actually possible to make a living, possibly even a good living, by writing and drawing comics? What makes the most money: webcomics, graphic novels, serializations, etc? How often are comics optioned for movies and TV, if they're good? (In America)

I don't mean the freaks who make millions and millions, but the average professional who sells reasonably well, who gets regular work from publishers.

>artist straight up refuses to draw hands even when they are in clear view
Cringe or based?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Simply not drawing them instead of hiding them is kind of based, not gonna lie.
/ic/ will say based since they can relate to avoiding any improvement whatsoever
I have a hand fetish so I'm going to say cringe.
Cringe, same when people cut off feet too, it's like they're afraid of improving

perfect quotation. do-nothing Coolidge should be the official poster boy of /ic/ (pic related)
check their bio and what they wrote.
apparently they are:
>arts major
>drawing since 4
>comes from 3 generations of artists.
>took anatomy classes
>had art mentor
Accept that when politicians do nothing it's a good thing, when /ic/ does nothing it's just sad and pathetic.
I'd rather a politician does nothing than try to control me
lack of understanding of how to draw better. If you aren't going to study art to some degree or actually learn from your mistakes, at least experiment w/ it until you start getting the results that you like.

I know you guys more into cartoon child porn than tools, but can anyone find anything on this Riefler M1 Grafika set? I literally can't find anything other than 2 Worthpoint listings, an eBay listing and an Etsy page with minimal info. All of the other Riefler drafting sets seem common enough but this dip pen set seems extremely rare. The Philadelphia importer of Riefler looks to just sell painting supplies now and I doubt contacting them would give me much info. I'm just curious as to the history of it and why it's so hard to find comparatively, I'm guessing that it was phased out quickly by Rapidograph but it seems odd that there's no info. Maybe a German anon could help?

just buy a ballpoint pen dumbass

Dip pens are so much trouble to use that I just use a Pilot Metropolitan for all my traditional art.
