Thanks. I love flat colors/flat/lineless art but at this point I can tell part of the reason I do it so much is that I dont have to deal with shading. Need to expand.
Lmao what a boomer
Yep! Lol funny enough I ended up keeping that hairstyle as well but ditching the tit size for something a bit smaller.

One schmuck at work is pretending this Terminator eye prop is his own. It's even clear that he used magic wand to snip it out.
Haven't found the source yet but it's probably a cyborg/terminator eye stock image.

What's the best spiral-bound sketchbook for general drawing and gouache? Something not too expansive
I saw a lot of people using this one, but I don't know if it's good

What others toned papers would you recommend? I bought this and I like it but I would like to use try another sheet color that help to emphatize the values
Buy loose paper and a clipboard. Store the paper in folders when you are done, hang up the ones you like on your wall to inspire you to keep going everyday. Replace the ones on your wall when you get better with newer ones.
You can use acid free printer paper for most of your work but there are also tons of loose reams of better paper to buy for different media etc
You can even get loose paper of your choice bound into a book if you really want a sketchbook format.
Besides this one and the gray one (I prefer the warm tone), I've tried the paint-on (I've observed it discoloring easily over a few days of partial sunlight; not a big fan of it as a drawing surface, but the paper is cheap and can take some acrylic & gouache), hahnemuhle cappuccino sketchbook (expensive, not spiral-bound, nice paper for drawing & ink, and it has a nice feel to it). Besides, I've tried some ingres from Canson IIRC, on various earth tones. They were alright, but I'm not a big fan of the ingres marks, especially for fine drawings.

What I'd recommend is to tone it yourself: buy some good 100% cotton paper if you can, and use some watercolor earth tone like burnt umber. I've experimented with a relatively large sheet of first quality cellulose drawing paper and brown shellac ink while stretching it with kraft paper on some plywood. It was decent for a first try, especially considering the paper. I expect 100% cotton watercolor paper+watercolor to behave better (e.g. the ink lift a bit from the paper upon erasing).

Toning it yourself allow you to control paper quality (if you want to sell later, better use good paper), value, hue.
Yeah, I just wanted to keep a single sketchbook because it would help me draw more, but I want to start using gouache seriousy
Printer paper is too thin and erases poorly.

I am ok using 50# paper for sketching. Spiral on the side is the most convenient for not getting bent up.

I've been lurking here for years. I'm the one who suggested the Robin name actually.
Artists are invariably prone to fatuous "Oh I love yr work" when not anon, it's so puerile. I hate nearly all other artists & their shit 'work' so thank god for here.

Perspective is so important and should be learned first

Framed perspective is better.
>Begs get scared off because it looks kind of like math
It is math, you fucknugget. It's ridiculously difficult and a complete slap in the face for people who thought that drawing would involve drawing and not setting up a ridiculously complex 5D grid for an hour to place a sphere in. It's outrageously retarded.

Does anyone know if the background is photobashed, painted from scratch or 3d? It looks really impressive
nice, I was searching for this pic
the artist said he used 3D and photobashing for other pieces, so chances are high he used both

Neither boards were good prior to 2016 or Gamergate, and they're both very male dominated (no, wearing a skirt doesn't make you a woman). The fuck are you talking about?

Even in 2006 or some shit it was common sense that video game communities are a cesspool of angry emotional nerds who can't get laid, and rarely has any women.
Remember when Jaffa Calling was the peak of /pol/'s real world relevance? Just a few years later a candidate for the Presidency (and eventual President) would be tweeting frogposts. Unbelievable
Good? No
Better? Absolutely
I never argued that men can't make bad communities, just that women make them worse
I doubt there are many women on /pol/ it's probably just trannies making things worse, as they do with everything they touch
Really doubt it's the women that spam /ic/ with wojacks, low quality coomer posts, and calls somebody a nigger when confronted with an opposing or different opinion.

ok, good luck making my mistake
i dont make mistakes a 3d render does all my work for me, stay beg faggot lmfao
Monochrome -> overlay color -> paintover.
When adding color, instead of trying to pick a color with the correct value and saturation, I simply use the purest, most saturated color, then lower the opacity of the layer until it looks right. This would be the equivalent of adding thinner without any black/white paint in traditional media.
your loss
>i dont make mistakes a 3d render does all my work for me
