The main benefit is: it's fucking funny
A second benefit is that the people who are going to seethe about it kinda deserve to seethe and are always going to end up seething all their lives anyway, so we might as well give them something to seethe about the day after they're born that will beneficially mark them clearly and definitively as not normal and not valid in the face of 99.9% of all people not seething or giving one solitary molecule of a shit about foreskin getting chopped off

Good point. Why are they so mad tho? They jelly?
I think it could be argued if you did the majority of the legwork, as in it was 60% yours, then it would be copyrightable.

But it is true.
On some level they're aware all their shit is fake and nothing puts light on the fact more than an actual artist doing actual art.
That cognitive dissonance is quickly turned into anger.
>On some level they're aware all their shit is fake
I think there is a term for it. It's transartist or something like that. Yeah they are definitely trans.
I don't think so, but like I said it wouldn't matter anyway. It would have to be indistinguishable to be useful and if it is they could just claim it's not AI and nobody would be the wiser.

Oh no what has the world come to

How do I anime render like pic related?

my artwork lacks the subtle gradients skin and the opacity of the white skin spots.

Would I have to adjust the opacity or density of my brushes and my airbrush?

I would post my work but people here already recognize me and would just tell me to draw "that's what I'm doing" if you don't plan out your drawings "just draw is useless"

I have surpassed the other anons that would frequent/ic/... hugs and kisses <3 y'all.

!!! Unexpected cute! I never knew I needed catboy Tobi in my life, but it is everything! Thank you very much for drawing him, it absolutely made my week... and you also inspire me! I wish I was as confident in digital as I am in trad, you can do both flawlessly. If you have a guy you'd like me to draw, please say! SOVL guaranteed, but I'll try my best!

Oh!!! I am glad you like the drawing!!! Tobias is always fun to draw!!!

If you want you can draw this guy, John-- former-scientist-turned-corporate-"superhero" who awakened his latent mutation and got blackmailed into his job.

Now he's in it for revenge, fighting against the people who "killed" his friend and a power that he cannot control. Nonetheless, he is determined to avenge his friend by any means necessary...

Ah, I love me a science man. Here he is! Hope you like

how overrated is he

are his paintings actually impressive or just seem better by association with his tech fantasies? and engineering is very much the midwits idea of genius.

>WTF did he actually invent?
human canon (8heads) and chiaruscuro.
no human being had ever realized this. True Genius.
He went to develop decent theories (eg why the sky is blue, tectonic plates). But all of his work is still quite rough and sketchy.

The ideas are interesting, it's coherent, but he didn't systematically formalize things. The treatise on painting is probably the most formalize part, and has served to train many generations of painters.

The precision of his anatomical drawings recently inspired a new heart operation.

His paintings are few, but have a rarely found depth.

Amusingly, the answer is a true mix on yes and no.

Another aspect is that science doesnt work as people think it does. An innocent idea might be surprisingly deep in the proper context, but that context might require a few centuries to reveal itself. Think, the atomic theory comes from maybe 2000y ago, but we still cant propoerly see atoms as of today
Lemme clarify a little: you cant judge the quality of science (research) on results. The results is more a matter of luck and circumstances, and they are always to be updated. The process however can be jugded: if you make coherent educated guesses, you're doing okay.

For example, the old atomic theory is wrong by modern standard, eas considered true for centuries, and still servea to explain gazes today.
Most of his designs worked but most were normal-ish things. Improvements and such. This whole muh inventions nonsense ignores that no one designs in a vacuum. Not even his whacky stuff is that out there for the time.

Painting i did in 18 hours in 3 days just before deadline on a rather large canvas.
Thoughts and possibly any critique? Thanks.

a snakes and ladders kinda feel
but with waterfalls instead of snakes
are you OP? this has no contrast, the brights and the browns both wash into each other, the composition is terrible and does not lead the viewers eye to a focal point. your figures are mush and badly proportioned. this was not worth posting, I would worry about getting good before committing such an embarrassing mistake again
>the composition is terrible and does not lead the viewers eye to a focal point.
That’s part of the appeal; the viewers’ eyes follow the flow of ladders and waterfalls trying to make sense of the fantastical scene. Calarts uses greater contrast in values. That doesn’t make it better.

No I am not OP.
Hi thanks. Im OP though and a lot of what you said was purposely done. Good criticism anyways.

General dedicated to posting and discussing art of either:
1. Manmade objects, vehicles, tool, weapons etc. (of any kind and any historical era, as long as they fall in the ballpark of "technology") and fictional derivatives of such
2. Objects,vehicles, creatures etc. that aesthetically fall into the visual space of mecha/robot/artificial/cybernetics etc. regardless of level of realism.
Helpful to mention the level of realism, if any, you are taking into account in the art.

glad you found it funny, gotta 1-up it for the next thread.
>I started dipping my toes into H2D
Keep it up, sounds good.
>Will practicing and learning with H2D enable me to do these things freehand someday
Depends on how much you practice and how high your standards are, i suppose. I do my stuff freehand, and there's plenty of mistakes. Find your own middle point between freehand and construction, but there's definitely potential to not use it.(applies to >>7067535's question too)
>Regardless of using H2D or not, does the process of learning perspective drawing like that also improve your ability to draw tanks, mecha and machinery "intuitively" (obviously not as precise as if I use intricate construction lines)
Probably. It helps to draw the actual things themselves, but being better at perspective makes drawing them easier, so you have more headspace to think about hte design/"anatomy" of the subject matter, and less about how to draw the boxes that make it up

Any recommendations for artbooks or artists to follow for fantasy tanks, mechas, trains, vehicles, or machines and stuff that are somewhat more cartoony but still detailed and leaning into realistic?

Tracing has its fair share and middle ground of use, but is not a sustainable source of learning. If you want to break a confusing arrangement down then thats fine. Even then however, you still must use it sparingly lest you stagnate due to using tracing as a form of quick self-gratification.

To create art, you must create, not trace. Because in the end, anatomy errors and lack of line confidence are still extremely prominent when you never took the time to actually learn them >>7067860, even when tracing from other artists works.
