I wanna start doing a web comic but i dont have that much time to shit out a whole chapter every week. Do i have to make that up with good art if i only update once a month with 10 or so pictures? >kinda pic related i guess
So, there is a guy who wants to commission me two figure picture and he wants specific actresses' appearance, close as possible faces etc. Are there any rules about drawing real (famous) people for a payment?
>>2778312 Yes. You can be sued for using someone else's likeness. I remember that lesbian x-men girl said that naughty dog was ripping off her likeness in the last of us and they remodeled their girl because of that.
>>2778333 That's a large scale production though. A couple of pictures commissioned for personal use isn't the same as making a product to be packaged and resold over and over. Technically they could sue if they saw the image and found out it was paid for, but I really doubt most recognizeable celebrities would care enough to file suit for the price of a single commission even if it was a couple thousand dollars. And with it being a single commission most likely it'll never hit their radar anyway. The type of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to take a trip soon. I'll be on the plane for 10+ hours each way. I want to get better at drawing the human form, and to have a better understanding of how to convey form better through my drawings.
How should I use my time on the plane to do this? Is there some sort of hyperbolic time chamber-like technique for me to use to do this?
I have an office printer that I can use to shoot off an art book if necessary.
Just pick up one of Andrew Loomis' books (Fun with a pencil for beginner exercises or Figure Drawing for all its worth for drawing people, I don't recommend this book for absolute beginners tho) and do the exercises and copy the planes
I wanna start doing some oil painting and am after some advice.
Is there anything I need to know about buying a canvas? I assume the store bought ones don't require any kind of additional preparation before painting on them? I've heard some canvases can cause dried paint to crack due to movement.
And what about after a painting is finished, are you supposed to coat it with varnish, or something else to protect the paint after it dries?
>>2777871 If this is your first time trying oil paints, then my first piece of advice is to just go out and buy a beginner set of oil paints, brushes, and canvas/canvas board. Anything else will send you down a long dark rabbit hole of technical aspects that wont matter until your style and comfort with oil paint is solid.
To answer your question, Gesso is used to create a barrier between the canvas and the paint, as well as a medium for the oil to bond to. Without gesso, the oil would slowly deteriorate the cloth behind... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2777871 >>2778238 Since you are just getting into oils, you really wont have to worry about half of the things I went over. The best thing you could do at this point is to find artists that you enjoy and try and emulate their style. How do they use color? How much detail is necessary? Try and find out what they did to learn to use oil. STUDY THE BRUSH STROKES. Seriously. Go to a museum and get so close to the art that security gets pissed. My recommendation, if you aren't...

So I wanted to come up with my own comic style for becoming a comic book artist at least for my passion. I wanted to make a comic of PowerGirl. I know it's not finished but I have come to the end of my rope in terms of how I can improve to make this better. .
Best way to find a "style" is learn how to draw a figure and recognize shapes within them a little better. Once you can eyeball something and break it down into simplified shapes you're on your way to gold. Keep a log of artist you already admire and play Frankenstein's monster, experiment alongside trying to improve your skill set.
I used the 3ds camera to take pictures of the Bryn Athyn Cathedral and then worked from the 3d pictures. the results are interesting, i feel like It was like working from life, but had the convenience of a photograph.
>>2777147 >i feel like It was like working from life, but had the convenience of a photograph because taking out a sketchbook and drawing whats in front of you is such a hassle. thank god we have cameras to add a extra couple steps
>people under value you >you undervalue you >starving artist syndrome >tortured artist syndrome >programs might replace you all in the near future >types of mediums going out of style >short deadlines >most dont make it >40 yrs down the line your sight/hands go to shit

What are your opinions on practicing on paper if you draw exclusively on digital for practicability and convenience (like being able to do so at work)? Is it a wasted effort? Can your mind even transfer what you learned on paper to digital if you don't have something like a cintiq?
>what a dumb question the answer is obvious No it's not. I've seen many contradictory arguments in favor of both sides from many experienced artists, as well as some middle grounds.
i used to think that it didn't matter, because improvement happens with your brain not the materials you use. until i realized that I'm quite shit at drawing traditionally, while being very good at digital painting. I had amatuer issues like I couldn't scale things the right size and end up making things too big or too small, as well as tunnel vision where i'd start off big and end up tiny and disproportionate. drawing digitally is very convenient because you can resize things, erase easier, go back, flip the image etc. there are so many shortcuts that you...

>>2776873 >>what a dumb question the answer is obvious >No it's not. yeah it is. it's all muscle memory. if you sit there and grind perfect circles on paper it's the same motion in digital unless you're a pleb who sits there ctrl+z a million times for every stroke.
>>2776879 My biggest problem with digital is that you can't trust it. I've had it from both sides: I look at a very good drawing in my hand, then when I digitize it, I realize it looks like utter crap or I print a digital drawing of mine and suddenly it looks 50% better.
I don't know why this happens, or if it's just me.
>>2776882 Not the same movements. If you have a small tablet like most people, your movements are way less wide than on paper, not to mention you're looking forward to the screen while drawing on your right when digital, a completely different position from when drawing traditional.
I see where you're coming from, but that's a very weak and thoughtless argument.
I've been drawing on and off for a while, but never move past the doodle/sketch stage. I've tried a few times to move to the next step, do lines and color, but the passion is completely lost and I quickly get bored and go back to doodling.
same as you OP, i dont give a fuck about making it look pretty. whenever i try to line art or color i get bored and rather just work on my fundies and draftsman ship. dont sweat it work at your own pace and have fun
Fellow art fag here. Ive done countless searches for a suitable surface to do drafting and drawing porn ya know the usual, and i cant find what im looking for. pic related except i don't need the legs. just a tabletop version that i can put on my desk i already have. any suggetions?
