"Yeah pretty much - I have a projector pc, so to trace the outlines I've been putting the paper on the wall and project an image onto it."
we had to do this projection thing in an art class i took, except the point was to show case / practice our shading/rendering or whatever the fuck

what's exactly cringey about op's pic? pretty sure everyone as a beginner tried a detailed pencil portrait of some girl or guy who they found qt. I did it, and i was proud of that shit. in hindsight, it was a valuable learning experience.

You're obviously doing it wrong. You need to explain to her that you like to use earth tones in your work because you feel it is a metaphor for people of color, and how appalled you are by the shocking underrepresentation of brown in the art world. You are, in fact somewhat offended that she thinks the colors that are analogous to the beautiful skin tones of oppressed, down-trodden peoples look like "shit".
best artist both in deviantart and 4chan
His existence should explain to you non-americans why we hate our blacks
Nothing wrong with using projectors if you're actually good.
I think that's a personal taste, but I feel the same. I think what's interesting in a painting is the cognitive dissonance you feel from realizing it is clearly a painting or drawing made by a person, while still feeling like it's a tri-dimensional object.
this guy has a fb account full of cringe and weird ass hype text for his comic thing
hes a full grown fucking adult too
In my two semesters of studying art, I have to say my art department was really cringy.
There was a girl who always wore this sonic cap and everyone was always playing 3DS
I did meet this cool dude I could talk about almost any subject with and smoke with.
Other than that, everyone actually painted and knew how to draw.
are you serious? look at the distance from the elbow to the shoulder. It's literally impossible for the upper arm to be shorter than the forearm in that pose unless her elbow bends the wrong way. that's the only way her upper arm could be more perpendicular to the camera than her forearm
I don't understand either. The only reason I see for projections would be, say, you want to take a drawing you did and blow it up and paint it larger, so you project the lineart onto the canvas while you paint as a guide.

Augh..My first school was a community college (So bare bones art department). The amount of painfully disgusting weebs in the "Anime club" that all took over the biggest table every single day in the student lounge.
I regret hanging out with them but that's what happens when you're awkward, fresh outta high school with no social skills. You stick to who accepts you. Thank god I grew a backbone.
This. Eventually they'll find a new hole but they'll be more widespread, less tight knit, and there will be less of that toxic hive-mind mentality.
I'm just waiting for someone who gets doxxed to sue the shit out of tumblr until they go under for not controlling their userbase at-fucking-all.
I literally feel like killing myself after I go on that site occassionally because it just pisses me off so fucking much. I only go on to check on artists I follow so I mostly avoid the drama-of-the-day but occasionally they'll reblog something relating to it and I just hate everything.
It's tumblr's fault I can't say I'm a feminist and get taken seriously, that I get looped in with these crazy cunts just because I truly want everyone to be equal, man, woman, cis, trans, what-fucking-ever. None of that bully-whos-different disgusting crap they pull there.
I understand that most parents could give a fuck less what their teens are doing online as long as it's not about drugs or they're getting taken advantage of by pedos but for fucks sake some of these kids (literally fucking children) should have their shit monitored.
God i'm fucking pissed now. Tumblr is one site I'd be grateful for if someone took it down, or attacked.
fucking kill her just do it its ur only option please do kill her kill her fucking kill her or lecture the fuck out of her and bring it to social media to show that shes trying to deter your artistic expression or some bs
I tried redrawing it a bit with my limited knowledge of anatomy and perspective.
Jesus, seeing this makes me feel a lot better about my progress.
Even in mathematics you get a lot of weird fucks in the classes. I had a girl in my linear algebra class that meowed every 3rd word when she would give answers or ask questions. Total weeb Inuyasha backpack, greasy hair, BO, unshaved legs, etc. I think the prof passed her because she felt really bad for her.
Considering she is in art school this is fucking sad. To add salt into the wound she uses fucking EXPENSIVE supplies considering her skill level. I wish my rich parents would pay for my art supplies.
She has a cute moustache in her new videos. also that drawing technique ;-;
a while back, i collected a bunch of screencap redraws from tumblr. please enjoy.
and of course, no cringe thread would be complete without this
>go to architecture school
>most celebrated architect in the faculty starts his module right off the bat saying something to the effect of if you're going to bitch and moan about inequality and social justice to get ahead you need get a fucking grip because the world's going to pass you by

there's some 400-lb landwhale with ADHD (apparently, she told everyone during her introduction) and bleached hair that always wears a polka dot tutu over her pants in my painting class. she stopped doing bad anime to do non-representational poop art, because it's easier, as she said
her fat dyke friend who frequently uses the word "problematic" comes every day and gives her advice on things most 4-year olds can figure out and once said "let's go loaf" before going to sit in the back of the classroom together
it's probably the only time i've heard someone use "loaf" outside of text
they also drew that undertale crap on the board one day and the instructor complemented it
A lot of architects are fucking based. I work in architecture and it's such a talent/hard work driven field that they feel incredibly slighted when someone says they need a helping hand because they are oppressed or any of that SJW shit. The real kicker is that most are very left leaning people, but they hate that shit.
Girl I know is branching into acrylic paints. She is painting in her bedroom, on the carpet against the wall with no drop sheet. She's using a piece of cardboard as a palette. She lives in a recently refurbished apartment with new carpets.
I just don't know whether to let her know that her real estate/landlord will not be happy, or let her figure it out for herself after she gets paint everywhere.
I can see using cardboard as a pallette if you're poor and haven't realized a $1 plate from the dollar store is a better option yet (Tell her this. If not wanting to buy a pallette is her deal, maybe she'd appreciate the less absorbant plate).
If she's new at it I think you should give her abreak n this case but the carpets is fucking stupid. Even children know well enough that paint + carpet = Trouble
I advised to use a plastic ice-cream tub lid if nothing else. She told me she knew what she was doing so.......I guess I'll mind my own business next time. Everybody has to make their own mistakes, I guess. I just thought it'd be easier to take advice first.
I was well known at work for being "that guy who's good at drawing" and i would leave my little portrait sketches in the break room and occasionally people would pin them up. One day someone pins up a shitty landscape pen drawing just like this. I see it posted and think nobody could possibly think I did it. Soon enough people start saying "oh so you do landscapes now too wow" I fucking tore down that stupid drawing and tossed it. Fuck that shitty artist tryna tarnish my reputation
Fun story tell your friends.
thats a bit harsh, you could just say "no" and start signing your portraits instead? Maybe it's just someone who just started and isnt comfortable letting someone else know... If this landscape is so bad and your portraits arent then why would people think you did it?
He doesn't understand what construction is.
There was a thread about this guy where everyone was outraged because they thought he was actually working for Walt Disney Animation Studios and wasn't just some retard working in a themepark.
It's too bad the instructions suck and the result is bad because his instructions are actually excellent. They're clear and concise and could be followed by people of all ages. It's too bad they're bad but kudos for making a good tutorial
Then again, everything from this shit series was cringe, but this shit is just disgusting.
It really isn't, especially for someone that thinks he's above Loomis. Just look at that face and hand, those arms and legs. He has no concept of construction and no knowledge of anatomy, yet feels like he's in a good position to advise people to ignore books and just draw what they see.
>those uneven heavily penciled brows
>can't even draw two lines in her face right
She has a lot of subscribers though, why? Not even as a kid would I think that drawing is anything but okay. Is this really the vagina thing? I'm trying hard not to be an asshole here
Ban can't draw proper tits, even if his life depended on it.
That kinda makes sense- I have subscriptions to people based on that alone. I guess the brows and the fact that she has such nice supplies really pisses me off and leaves the salt in my mouth for too long to appreciate it. She does seem like a nice person though.
Impressionism is about trying to capture the mood of a scene rather than its detail, painting light and color over form. I'm not seeing that in his work. There's no subtlety, just sloppy brushwork. Most of the what he sells doesn't look like he even bothered finishing painting.
It may not be horrible to the average person's standards, but he obviously doesn't have the knowledge to back up his advice.
It's funny because Loomis pushes to also draw from life. Difference is Loomis pushed himself to better understand all the shit Marc is saying to do (learning mental tools e.g. perspective, proportion, color, value, etc.) while drawing from life.
yeah i dont know wtf marc is talking about. in the loomis book he goes off on this rant about how he knows people who are regarded as great artists but when you take away their reference photos and projectors they're shit. that's why i like him so much

she's actually not that bad?? pic is from her tumblr
It's the consequence when half of tumblr is too young to understand how to handle serious issues like race, sexism, etc becaue they lack experience, and half of them are literally mentally fucked up and still act like the other half ot tumblr, but are in their 20s and older and think its normal because of the hivemind that is that toxic as fuck site. Anyone who disagree gets doxxed and fucked over for speaking up about the abuse SJWs put people through when they don't conform to their beliefs.
just because it's traditional media, doesn't mean it can't be photobashing
also, her paintings remind me of those nauseating airbrush pictures some street artists produce
Lmfao yes they do retard. They're questioning people's opinion with what they're saying so in a sort of slang-way of writing that people do online to try to denote intonation and inflection, it works. If it were for a piece of writing like a novel, story, etc then no, it isn't correct.
>8,5 years making a portrait
But no matter how you look at it, it's still a shit-faced Marilyn Monroe.
all of the art from this guy makes me cringe
not cringy, they've been drawn inverted on purpose. inverted nipples are found in plenty of hentai and ecchi images and it's a rather common kink
>tfw nobody to worship me as if I was a hairy goddess
>ruining Peronas goth loli aesthetic by giving her brown skin
I can deal with tumblrites making terrible redraws of animu screencaps, but this kind of shit is just unforgiveable. If they HAVE to redraw every fictional character in existence as black, they could at least be bothered to learn how to paint black skin and how to give clothing a color scheme that works with it. This shit is a crime against fashion.
I couldn't find a link to one on their website.

Jesus, I wank to drawings, too, but get some standards, anon.
After all of the shit I've seen on deviantart, this is what repulses me the most physically.
Even Exodia the forbidden one didn't gross me out this much.
the new generation of artists
see what get's me here is the sheer amount of people who think this is good.
there seem to be some elements that speak to them, regardless of the fact that it makes the picture looking hideous.
that smeared pencil speaks to the people, man.
eyes in general.
I know I shouldn't care, but I do
