I don't get the NFT market Anonymous 08/27/2021 (Fri) 17:28:29 No. 3885 [Reply] [Last]
I have been around Opensea for a few months, together with some others, and I don't get how some art is being sold there while I'm offering my stuff for free and not getting buyers. Does anyone here have one of those invitations for a better website to sell? maybe some advice? help

>>5158 >>5159 Thank you for spoonfeeding me, love you.
There are several classes of people buying NFTs: >rich retards, particularly those who got rich from crypto and want to show off >poor retards who heard about it and don't want to miss out on what rich retards insist is bitcoin 2.0 >people running schemes, trading them between friends or solo to establish a fake price history to pump their own products >criminals using the variable values of the medium and the fact that they're not a currency to mask payments for illegal activity >institutions speculating with huge swathes of money to burn You can only really target the first two. I would probably be trying to make something that is quite distinct, not ugly and dedicate an effort to market it on Twitter and Reddit and other places, probably organize some kind of sales mechanism to create a sense of scarcity and pressure. Just listing it is not going to get you to 1.8m in sales like Stonetoss anymore, I think.
(50.73 KB 628x628 trust_the_plan.jpg)

>>5142 and >>5161 are absolutely correct. You need to be popular or have good marketing to sell out a 5k items collection though. Flipping NFTs is easier for quick profit. The best way is to buy when bots sell them below mint. Favor the ones with rare attributes and good combinations. If you end up bagholding just keep selling to yourself until a sucker falls for it. You need a starting capital of at least $10k to flip comfortably. Stick to this strategy and you will become homeless with massive debt in no time (and that is a good thing!)

>>5150 These drawing look decent. > Mind you, I don't have any talent for drawing and I might've started from negative instead of 0. So I have hard time replicating what you're telling me to do. Yeah, it is probably hard for you to understand what I meant, without the necessary experience. Ok, so honestly I would recommend to leave out the shading from your drawings and focus on proportions and clean lines. (It really doesn't serve you to shade your images at your current skill level.) If you can somehow emulate shading using clean lines, then that would serve you, because you're exploring using lines for as much as possible. The point is to focus on a single technique. I thought you were comfortable enough using lines, so I proposed using patches of value instead as a completely different way of thinking used to broaden your horizon. I was always decent at drawing, so I unfortunately can't really relate to your current situation. I really want to assist you somehow, but expecting too much from a student will hinder his progress, because of the resulting frustration. Let me give you this priceless piece of advice instead: Just practice. ;)

>>5128 > Based and Chadpilled I don't know dude. I'm currently playing with the thought of giving up drawing. I'm loosing it. Why do I even draw? I mean like...what's the purpose? Should I stop thinking? Religious texts sure fuck with your head. GET ME OUT OF THIS EXISTENCE! ... OK, I think I'm fine again. I remembered. I draw for fun. I don't need a purpose, because God takes care of that. I'm just the medium. Then there also is no degenerate art. But I still think my art will change, because my mind changed quite a bit over this pasr week.

Drawing Hardware General Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 14:14:30 No. 2780 [Reply] [Last]
A THREAD FOR DIGITAL DRAWING HARDWARE AND PERIPHERAL QUESTIONS I was drawing this morning and my tablet (HUION WH1409 8192) pen's pressure was acting up and I pressed down harder on it thinking the nib was stuck or something but I felt the nib get lodged into the pen. The nib was really stuck in there but I managed to get it out. HOWEVER, now it's not registering pressure whatsoever and I've tried sticking objects down the shaft to see if I could maybe get whatever was in there out or maybe reset the pressure mechanism, but to no avail. I'm pretty sure it's just fucked. I found what model it was online but how exactly does replacing a previous pen work? Should it work out of the box when I touch the new pen to my tablet or am I going to have to install new drivers? Are the settings on it going to have to be reset?

(58.85 KB 1468x1149 615nu89MXUS._AC_SL1500_.jpg)

There were a number of posts about proper posture when using drawing tablets, so I decided to convert my Huion to see how it feels (Kamvas Pro 12, but I think it would be easy enough with any other model since the drivers are probably similar enough). I was able to change the working area to my primary monitor, and then I changed the background on my tablet display to a grid, just for fun. So far it feels quite good, though it felt a bit weird at first since I'm used to using it as a display. I've definitely noticed that I can draw for longer without feeling shoulder strain. Before, I would just take breaks every 30 minutes or so. I'm thinking I might try getting something like in the 3rd pic so that I can have a few more keybindings, and so that I don't have to reach across my tablet to use the keys on my keyboard. Has anyone tried anything similar?
>>5113 That's a pretty neat idea and I'm glad it's working out for you. I personally am of the belief that the legacy-style tablets such as how you're wielding your Huion at this point are much more comfortable to use and even more accurate in some ways than the ones with a screen. Admittedly there could be some "holistic" thing I'm missing with the screen tablets but having used them myself I don't really think so. I do not feel as good drawing on a screen as I do drawing on a piece of paper and I don't think they're comparable at all, contrary to what Wacom and all of these other companies would dearly like us to believe.
(985.73 KB 1334x750 cam.png)

>>5113 >>5113 I use a tablet stand and put my keyboard underneath so that I can use my full keyboard for shortcuts. You should definitely look into mechanical keyboards. They are a joy to type on. I am unable to find any 32+ inch tablet without a screen but I would rather use a screenless tablet if given the choice.

I just watched a Marc Brunet video and he became almost as annoying as that asian guy using the color dodge tool. (Ross Crossdresses or smthn.) It's all so fake... Why do people do this? (I already know why. I just wished they would start being honest and stopped using jump cuts all over the place in conjunction with that incredibly annoying way to talk, as well as forcibly trying to be quirky.) Shit, I'm being too negative. Quckly brighten the mood. I love how the moon looks right now. The greenish glow around her makes her seem more ominous. The moon is female by the way. It's kind of obvious when you realize she's veiled in darkness. I also realized that I spend every moment I'm not busybeing distracted or busy, analyzing what I see and how I react to it. Which means it's too much too share in here, especially in text form from a goyphone. Here is a realizations or thoughts: Geometric patterns, symmetry, mathematically accurate and repeating shapes are appealing and fun to look at. I find myself enjoying looking at nature and it's beauty. There are mathematical patterns everywhere. It's a joy to see patterns and see ways how they are all connected and repeated on a small scale as well as in large. Repeating shapes are just so harmonious and beautiful. Add a bit of unexpected twists and turns to keep the viewers eye intrigued to explore further and follow along the yourney if lines and shapes you've created, trying to connect and match things. Your viewer is the biggest asset to your art. The piece itself doesn't exists. It's the catalyst for a symphony of visual and emotional stimulation within the viewer.

Recommended mechanical pencils?
>>5063 I fell for the Staedtler meme but honest to god I don't think there's anything much better about them than some cheap Dick Blick ones, though they do fit different sized leads from what I recall.
>>5063 Anything will do, and it's mainly down to personal preference. I like the feel of Uni Kuru Toga, Staedtler 925-25, and Pentel P205 pencils. Pentel P205 is simple, light, durable, and cheap. Staedtler 925-25 is a higher budget version of that. Uni Kuru Toga It rotates the lead as you write or draw, so the tip stays sharp and lines are more consistent. This effect is more visible in writing than in drawing. I like it mainly for the feel. They have metal versions, but they might be too heavy for some. It does not bother me during shorter drawing sessions, but for longer ones I use plastic versions. Another thing that might bother people is the sponginess. When you first press against surface to draw to draw, lead recedes a bit as this is what triggers the rotation mechanism. Lately I have been using mechanical pencils for quick brainstorming sketches, and most of my physical drawing is done with 2mm lead holders. >>5064 >I fell for the Staedtler meme At least you did not fall for the rOtring meme. They are overpriced, too heavy, and I find the tip wobble very annoying.

>>4903 Good stuff. I've been meaning to get back into this.
>>4903 I might add Understanding Comics, also by Scott McCloud. It brings up some interesting ideas as well as analyzing types of sequences and their effect on atmosphere and stuff. Judging by a certain recent chadpost I think at least one anon might appreciate this book in particular right now. One takeaway I got from it was basically that comic art is not really images the reader passively observes, but instructions for what to imagine. Might be that I'm projecting a bit of my own ideas there, I've been thinking a lot about that stuff recently, but either way I believe it's definitely worth at least skimming through.
>>5039 Yeah! I actually forgot/was only half aware of this one for some reason. Time to pick up a new book.

>>4409 I meant to keep you guys posted on this but I forgot. Basically I fucked up the first weeks' dosage of Black Walnut extract and nothing significant happened. A couple weeks later I tried again, and even bought more so I could bring it to work and not forget it at home (which was the big issue the first time around). Anyway! Taking a 3 x 3 (three "pulls" from the dropper each, three times a day) I took a conspicuous floating shit the 4th day, and for a couple of shits afterwards I saw a couple white "rice" looking specks in my shit (could have been food, I unironically don't remember what I'd been eating but I did see them a couple days in a row in either case). The important thing is that night that I had a floating shit I dreamt three consecutive times and I have now dreamt (or recalled my dreams at least for a while after waking up) pretty much every day since. This is significant to me because I hadn't dreamt much if at all for the past 15-20 years since I'd become a wagie; dreams were literally a, I'd say a couple times a year thing, maybe I haven't taken the Black Walnut for a few weeks since and I continue to recall dreams pretty much every night; I am waiting on a shipment of pine gum turpentine to continue my genocide crusade against the Interstellar Demonic Interdimensional Alien Wormoids that have been using me as a flesh mech for the past 30 years and will report back asap.

>>4977 Oh, I knew I remembered black wallnut extract from somewhere. You're trying to get rid of your parasites. Terpentine has to be taken with the most disgusting of augars, so these things actually are tricked into killing themselves. I'm not sure anymore, but I think you took it right before eating or so (don't quote me on that). The most effective for me was some black extract imported from russia, maybe that was black wallnut. It was liquid though. I always took a cup of water with a few drops before eating. Aftee four days it started to get too uncomfortable for these fuckers, so they dipped. I hope you go through with it every day, until you see qn effect. After two weeks, there should be an effect at latest.

That's right. It's that time of the year. Challenge is to make one drawing a day for October based on the prompts in the image. Inktober is traditionally meant to practice your inking skills, but don't let that stop you from doing something else. Digital art, rough sketches, anything else is all fine. As long as you draw something. Join us here by posting every day! It's a nice way to make sure you stick to the challenge, and you can always asks us to bully you give you constructive feedback. Finally, don't worry about missing a day. Try to keep to the challenge, but it's much better to miss a day and continue than to miss one and give. Again, Just Draw. Good Luck!

>>4907 Honestly drawing every day wasn't that much of a change of pace, since that's how I've practiced since I started in early July. The prompts however let me get out of my comfort zone in terms of what I was drawing (besides shit where I was really lost). I've wanted to stop drawing everyday before inktober though, so I'm going to need to find a new way to practice. I have better idea of what I suck at kinda everything, but I think I'll start with perspective on rigid structures and gesture drawing so hopefully I can do more constructive practice after a break. Glad I created the thread and I'll see you all next inktober.
>>4946 >>4945 >>4943 >>4917 Congrats for making it until the end!
