>>639 I like the portrait. Was he a reference? >>640 I really like all four figures done in the first pic. Your figure work is real good in general. I see you need more study on heads and how a face is crammed into one lol However the heads and faces I find more interesting is here >>642 first image. The tall figure with it's pin hole eyes. That figure would look great standing next to your more developed character of the one eye, scythe girl. Maybe a companion of sorts or alter ego?. Looking good, keep it up :)
>>640 >>639 >>641 >>642 Very good productivity, keep it up. Having drawn through a Bridgman book myself I'm still not sure how I feel about his stuff. >>643 This is coming together pretty nicely.

>>631 Went on a trip with my grandpa to meet up with some of his family. Apparently we're going to some sort of professional RC car race.
>>632 That sounds cute, there's no way your grandpa is as dopamine fried as any of us are so try and be patient and have a positive attitude for his sake if nothing else. He's probably pretty excited about it even though I have a sneaking suspicion you're a bit more cynical about the whole thing.
I've been working for $25 an hour cash for a mentally ill ebay reseller who's like $40,000 in debt through various channels. I've never met someone so lazy in my life. If he wasn't literally crazy he'd probably be a millionaire by now though; he's on all the "garage sale" type sites 24 hours a day refreshing the page (autism), making constant texts and emails and getting great deals on shit. I appreciate the money but it's been taking away from drawing time. >work 10.5 hours at work >go to this guy's house and work 4-6 more hours >go home and sleep >repeat If I wasn't in debt up to my balls myself because of my car accident I wouldn't even consider working for this weirdo at almost any price either tbh. Fuck that nigga. He's go these fucked up Resident Evil dogs I can hardly bring myself to look at but at the same time I'm compelled to give them a lot of love whenever I'm there because they're clearly neglected. They've obviously never had a bath (super matted hair) and I've never seen this sperg or his similarly mentally ill boomer parents even touch them. They also BOTH have a tumor-thing in one of their eyes pushing the eye back into their skull. This guy and his entire family belong in a padded room ffs.

What are some good books about getting into traditional painting and color after you've >Mastered Implying. traditional realist drawing? I was dumb enough to try and hone in my drawing skills for years without focus on painting. Now that I've gotten into it, my under drawings translate horribly, I cannot properly mix skin tones, the verdaccio comes through too much on the surface, and even when doing non traditional coloring I still fuck up the form. I need them now more than ever since every passing day seems less and less likely to offer some sort of golden path to a art academy or university for an MFA. I'm legitimately scared help.

>>617 >Harold Speed Welcome back Atelierfella. Are his words alone on the subject easy to follow? IIRC his book you recommended in the past (https://archive.org/details/practicescienceo00speerich) is in black and white and I've always wondered how that translates into teaching the subject of color specifically, I still haven't really started getting into color much yet anyway but I'm just curious if it translates well. I've seen that he's got great material on values though.
>>618 I guess I didn't entertain the idea that his other book could be in color (but his books are so old I can't imagine that being the case even if I were better able to track it down. REE!)

>>617 I really like the smooth, slick look of those rock formations by the way; some of the subtler details of the figure-like their waist area for example-are detly captured as well. Good work!

Krita remains the most versatile and overall best free drawing, painting and animation software I'm aware of. It is extremely competitive and even superior to many commercial software options. Find it at https://krita.org/en Newest Release (10/17/20) https://krita.org/en/item/krita-4-4-0-released/

Is it a good sketch program replacement for Mischief?
>Mischief I have no fucking clue what that is. I would say it's probably a good replacement for Mischief. (Also I personally wouldn't run a piece of software called "Mischief". But that's just me.)
>>535 OP here Searching for that program brought me to a pretty sketchy site with a .ru address so yeah I think it's a safe bet that Krita is superior. It has great brushes, since its latest release it's much smoother and faster and it has the best animation timeline of any software I've ever used. >t. Owns both Clip Studio Paint and Toon Boom Studio-and has tried many others. Its own historical downside is its reliability which I still feel may be suspect but I haven't run into any problems with the latest release-and thanks to its vigorous autosave feature even five years ago this wasn't such an insurmountable problem or huge concern. Try it out!

>>527 >copy images you like tracing is a no-no, right?
>>530 Not him but "not really"-at least in the learning process. Taking the actual drawing out of the equation can expediate certain things. I don't think you should necessarily trace someone's completed work, rather I've used tracing to help me memorize the names, placements and general shapes of anatomical features for example.
>>530 >tracing is a no-no, right? Well, it's not necessarily a no-no. But I wouldn't just randomly trace things, do it with a specific learning goal in mind. If you want to consciously create great art, you have to consciously practice. And remember that you get better at what you practice. If you trace a thousand drawings, you'll be a very good tracer, but still won't be able to draw jack shit from imagination. (Maybe a little bit, but it's not worth mentioning.)

On Requests Loomis 10/13/2020 (Tue) 04:38:28 No. 487 [Reply]
This board represents a very small gathering of artists pursuing artistic self-actualization through a combination of labored study and strategic visual shitposting. We welcome all those interested in discovering the bittersweet struggle of artistic improvement for themselves to take up the pencil, the pen, the paintbrush or the p'tablet to join us on this board as friends. Please understand though that coming here expecting to solicit free or "cheap" work from our community is frowned upon-what you might flippantly spend seconds requesting can represent hours of work informed by years of study or experience to grant. Those enormous tits? Someone cried themselves to sleep trying to get them just right. That perfect dumptruck ass? Only possible through hundreds of highly detailed studies of the pelvis bone, gluteal muscles and the related fat deposits-to say nothing of the impassioned observation of countless references in extremely high resolution at all angles (all done purely for professional purposes of course). A few of us may delight in participating in request threads on other boards on our own free time and on our own terms. Doing so on our own, sparsely populated board however is a totally one sided affair where the artist can expect as payment for their labors a pitiful handful of (You)s, coupled with further outstretched hands anticipating the delivery of more requests. It's nothing personal so please don't take it as such, but as it stands I will not allow requestmaking to find a permanent home on this board-we instead choose to reach out to any such people and invite them to take their first steps on their own journey, to seize the power within themselves to answer their own artistic longing with decisive and well-informed action rather than gracelessly pleading out to we few strangers in the night: >"please help me masturbate" I hope you understand but if you take issue with anything I said-whether you're an artist/regular or someone just passing through-I welcome any further discussion on the subject to be directed to this thread for now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uO9tyyjRd4

Connecting writers to artists (and general shilling) Anonymous 10/09/2020 (Fri) 17:54:35 No. 441 [Reply]
I'm really impressed by the work on this board that you guys put out, and I'd like to be that "for exposure" asshole and get some of you to work for notpockets or only small amounts 'cause I'm a neet like you. Long story short, I'm a failed writer with a couple of short stories that could be made into comics and some stories that are too long for that but I'd like to see scenes/characters drawn from. If anyone is looking for inspiration or something to work on, I'm looking for someone who can draw better than the stick figures that I can manage. You can then post 'em on your social media and show off your work, just credit me as the writer. The "please draw my" characters come from a medieval fantasy, a 20th century cold war story with some fantasy/sci-fi elements, and a worlds-in-collision that mixes up genres but is heavy on sci-fi and medieval fantasy. If someone wants to do an entire story, my short stories include a magical girl parody that could be done in manga style, a D&D parody that could be done in a naturalist / classic fantasy style, a Teen Titans fanfic that could be done in TT2003 style, and a couple of ideas for rebooting Fearless Fosdick. If the crowgirl artist is around and available, I'd like you to draw one scene. One of the non-crow pics you did makes me think you'd be good for it. Another scene that I'm willing to commission would include fog effects, ice, lighting on different textures (metal, ice, cloth, skin). I'd like it done well so I'm willing to pay for it. So, how do we do this? Should we communicate offsite so a story is new to readers when the artwork is finished, or should I post a script online and send volunteers to it? Should I throw out a character description a week and ask volunteers to draw them and post them at the end of the week, like the theme thread? If you take commissions or know someone who does, how do I contact you? If the mods don't want this sort of thing on the board, I won't be offended if you kill the thread. Are there other places where a request like this might be welcome?
>>441 >'cause I'm a neet like you I might be a neet, but I'm not a degenerate or incel.
>>442 being a degenerate incel is GOOD, redart!
OP here. Hey, some tangential blather is at least a response. Better than nothing. Since there's no interest in being my artslave yet, I'll post some general concepts and see if that piques any interest before suggesting anything from my writings. It'll be like a second theme thread except the leader is a little crazier and has no idea what he's doing. Here's a concept: Two board-tans (or other mascots) playing a sport together. It's a good way to show off some motion and action. Post on Friday (16th of October) or whenever you get around to finishing it. Anchor to this post. And if anyone is offering themselves for commissions, add some way to contact you.
