You fuckers voting family better either draw incest or switch your vote to holiday.
I want to draw mai waifu a valentine's card.

Would I get banned if I post stuff like this with 30 minute drawing.
As I'm starting sculpting again and might not be able to get 2 hours of decent work, but instead 1 and half hour sculpt + 30 minute drawing.
do it for him anon, he doesn't have much time left on this earth, make him proud.
Take a shitty picture with whatever camera you can get your hands on. Go knock out your sister and [spoiler]take a picture of her[/spoiler] then take a shitty picture of your art. Good luck anon.
Has Rover ever posted in these threads? Why is he a même?
I've heard that if you always get passed over for critique you're either so bad there's basically nothing to say but loomisticky or you're decent but not good enough or interesting enough for anyone to care. I'm thinking my stuff falls in the latter category. How do I make it more interesting? Not just for critique but in general? I'm not landing any jobs with a boring ass portfolio, and I'm out to land a job.
Well I won't bother with the name but I posted the night elf yesterday and some other kind of elf girl today >>2396110. I know I shouldn't be out for replies and that's not what I'm trying to do, it's just that when I go to portfolio reviews like at cons and whatever, people say I have some technical skill but no pizzazz, in less douchey words. And when I post here - not las specifically - I get neither torn down nor built up and it's weirding me out. I draw stuff I think is interesting, I try different methods and subject matter and there's no reaction one way or another so I just feel confused. I know it needs to be better but not in what way.
I'm no pro but in my opinion you have a problem with colors. It looks all fade and eh, you should try darker colors and such (for shadows notably) or take risks. It's alright if you do some crazy stuff with them, just try out more "extreme" things, sometimes you can get interesting results.
Might be an unpopular opinion around here but I don't think copying other artists' work is bad (as long as you obviously don't pass it as your own or put it on your blog or some shit like that). Dodson and other well-known artists said so themselves, by copying things you also learn to develop your own handwriting.
LAS is about getting people to draw more and learn, so I don't see how using ref or copying is bad as long as it's obvious you did it to study something (i.e. a sketch or something). If you weren't in the mood to draw from imagination then copying stuff is better than not drawing anything at all is what I'm trying to convey.
For this specific piece, it looks like you are painting in local colors only and your saturation is really low, also the ear placement seems too far back.
As far as your general concerns, maybe try doing some more dynamic drawings? Camera angle and posing are a large part of what make drawings interesting, combined with cool design (composition is a big deal too). Find some artists' work that excites you and try to distill what it is about it you find exciting through studies.
I know I got a critique on that one and I was really grateful. But overall my stuff flies under the radar and I want to figure out how I can generally make it more appealing, not just the flaws in each picture. I know this probably sounds whiny or something but fuck man, I needed outside opinions. I'm not posting this stuff on tumblr, and I don't trust my friends not to gas me, as messed up as that probably sounds.
Yeah I'm trying to get more into color now, I think lack of color is probably one of the main reasons my stuff is boring. Good to know I went too desaturated this time, last time it was the opposite.
Good idea. I probably haven't been pushing gesture nearly enough.
Okay, yeah. I'll try to think of a whole context for things before I draw them. I usually just start drawing a random face or something.
To build on what the guy said about story, try running through this mental checklist when you begin a piece:
this CHARACTER is in PLACE doing ACTION because of REASON, and they feel EMOTION
Another day being flawless day 1er.
>tfw I have to quadruple check everything to make sure it is 100% correct and I still am anxious as fuck
This is exactly the kind of thing I need, keywords to have in mind. That's how I run through anatomy, makes sense to apply it to everything else.
Thanks guys, I wasn't sure if I would just get chewed out for asking for attention again but these are all really great replies and things I never would have come up with on my own just in my own little world. I won't attentionfag again though, unless I really get stuck on something.
I tell myself it doesn't matter, but...
btw a great book to check out is Framed Ink. Eisner's books (Comics and Sequential Art, Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative, Expressive Anatomy for Comics and Narrative) are also great for any artist, not just ones focused on comics.
>trying to compensate for already having started late
>being this delusional
Poor kid couldn't handle all that power and snapped.
Fuck you Rover why did you have to go fuck this gay earth fuck.
Why so many daywunners who only post 10 minutes before the deadline with shitty sketches? Staying flawless isn't good enough, you need to git gud too.
>not having a mythical creature monstergirl as your waifu
It's part of the elimination process. Let's say you have shitty internet and it goes down right before the deadline and you haven't submitted. Instead of getting eliminated it uses your "token" and you can make up for it the next day by double posting. If you miss another day then you're out. After 30 days of not missing a day you get another token.
Technically you can use it for a day of each month but it was added for the act of god moments
>voting for horror when we just had skellies
LAS is getting really spooky
Rover's disappearance and Antonin Scalia's death, is it just a coincidence?
>"I, anon, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer shit-posts and critique without respect to persons, and do equal right to the beginners and to the got-gud, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as anon under the sticky and global rules of the Last Artist Standing. So help me Loomis."
she must be real because kr0n can't draw from imagination
Fucking hell I'm tired of you people mentioning LAS artists in this thread with fucking typos. Is it so hard to fucking type their name correctly to help others checking them.
Anon313, please stop destroying my self-esteem.
Maybe faggot. I've been scouting out the other remaining flawless daywunners and it's split into two. There's the handful of guys who post right after midnight, and then there's a bunch who post right before.
I usually just draw for about an hour, maybe two and submit between 11 and midnight. I totally have the time to draw for a lot longer, but this pattern has gotten comfy, and I'm playing through XCOM 2.
Couple of figures, maybe one if I'm not feeling it - not sure if I'm borderline low effort warning, but I know for sure I am low effort in my heart.
Waxnova is undoubtedly female. Looking at that colored pencil stuff there's no way. Not saying it as a bad thing, it just has girl written all over it, especially that girl with the wolf cowl.
I dont know of any guys that would dot their I's with hearts. Def a chick.
Draw your gf
You have one... right? right anon senpaikun-sama?
>your just picking names at random
>I am still invisible
It wasn't random, though. I really do know her (a little bit). She's asian and works out and complains of carpal tunnel all the time.
She's also gotten a lot better at art, i guess she's going to schoolism or fzd now.
Oh, and she also likes dead dears (in a perverted way). I'll let her fuck my corpse desu senpai.
>dead dears (in a perverted way)
How do you even find out you're into this?
>all this witch-hunting
great, it's a boys vs girls chapter
shoutouts to the retard who brought up this
As far as I know girls aren't there trying to figure out what guys are up to or saying stuff like "wow I want anon313 to be my bf kek". Blame yourselves.
None of us said anything about being female. It's just your manliness and your rotten ego trying to seek us out. Not the opposite.
>begging for attention on an anonymous website
You're upset because you can't empty your balls on us. It drives you mad because you have no other purpose than trying to fill the void within your heart. Sad part is no girl will ever accept you.
now you're just begging to be mocked, femanon
you guys are really fucking autistic, femanons included. These threads are usually decent since the banters kinda funny but now you're bringing your dad shitty lives into this. Fuck off to /r9k/,/adv/, or even back up the hole you useless shits came out of if you're not gonna draw.
This anon has the right idea. Your gender doesn't matter here, if you wanna debate that shit do it somewhere else.
I'm pretty sure more than 50% of the artists on LAS are female and the vocal minority is just 1 or 2 guys saying they want to cum inside Stella. Stella's probably one of them...
I think it's supposed to be a light source on the lip? It's based on this pic
>Unless you're drawing magical fairy princesses or something
But here again you're not inside their head, passion you have for something and taste aren't something you can measure with age. Especially since we're posting on a weeaboo board, hard to tell someone's age when they're drawing animu.
This kind of thing is retarded and no they cannot tell, if it was a test to guess female drawings they would fail. This is an anonymous board and they have no way of confirming their findings, they're talking out of their ass.
I suppose we should thank women for killing the thread.
anyway, now that the bump limit's reached and we're hopefully less shit than that clusterfuck, anyone have resources for understanding joint articulation and movement and stuff, especially the bones and muscles?
Came with a friend, wasnt even planning on going and the place is too far off the bus lines.
How autistic would it be to ask the host for paper? I'm already just sitting on my phone.
I really wish the topics were weekly like it was first said they would be. I just realized I can't do a longer piece and upload progress on it if I'm doing the daily topic and that's kind of lame.
>tfw I don't really care about the competition
>chill and draw everyday, just caring about sharing the link and keep going with my life
>lurk these threads a bit just to have some fun
>feeling the need to assure people you aren't in this for fame
>being this insecure that you have to write this down to make yourself believe it
shake my head, family
I just realized if someone posted a double submission on one day the page only shows the link to one of them
also, lava you're meant to filling in missing blocks with a red block ;_;
What tablet are you guys using and which one would you recommend to a poorfag who'd like a cheap tablet but that isn't necessarily shit and which with it'd be possible to do pretty much anything?
>submit at 23:57
>day rolls over and it says i didn't submit
>check and the submission failed because i forgot to submit a thumbnail
>want to fix but I feel like it'd be cheating, have done it for others in the same situation but still
3 weeks later
>make active entrants page
>everyone now obsessed with flawless day 1ers
>mfw i'm not one because i didn't want to be a cheater
>mfw 4 "flawless" on the list lost their token because of a mistake they made but i fixed it
Yeah I was going to wait until the site was feature complete before I started sharing it around and advertising. I expected maybe 20 people to sign up when I released it and we had 180 on the first day.
The concept and the way the site works is simple but it's not intuitive. The whole concurrent challenge thing is confusing for an outsider and the site doesn't explain how it works. I think I'll limit posts to /ic/ until we hit beta because that first experience is important and right now it's not a good one
dammit i spent almost 40 minutes redrawing the two shitty guys in the top left. i felt like i had a stroke or something i just couldn't draw the chest shapes so i started drawing circles for everything
yeah people don't give enough credit to the rest of week 1. there are like 50 flawless
I started making a meme about the first 23 people who have not lost a day and have a perfect record because people would not shut about stella and femanons as a whole, i'm also the guy who keeps doing the "stella has a bigger dick then all of you" guy, it worked and now people aren't talking about stella so I won plus as a perfect day 1 guy this is technically advertisement so I give the mods permission to ban me (no permaban pls no bully). i will even screen cap this right now.
i already posted mine, so can we cut the day short already? i want to start with the next one.
switch mathias with fluffable and this list will be accurate.
Even if you aren't mentioned in the threads, I just want you guys to know that I only follow flawless day 1ers because you're the only ones that matter.
Lava is a day 0er, thus honorary flawless 23. You can be 23.5.
>>Ask someone out for valentines day
>>"Sorry, I'm working"
>>End of valentines day rolls around
>>Look at their facebook
>>Photo of them with their friends
>>Send them a message hoping they had a good day
>>"It was busy"
>>They ask how my day was
>>"Y-yea, I had a good day. I just met up with a friend"
>>tfw I just drew porn all day
>>tfw I draw porn every day
This is my life now, thank you LAS.
>I just want you guys to know that I only follow flawless day 1ers because you're the only ones that matter.
a-all of them? oh wow.
that's not the point
the point is to kick out all the slowpokes so that only i remain
>Try to use loomis studies to draw spider waifu
>give up and go back to studies
I'm glad I'm not a flawless, less exposure / constant monitoring
because certain mistakes change the overall construction of an image so when you fix one part, more problems pop up, and it's hard to bring yourself to start over on something when you have parts that you really like and don't want to lose
Another thing is that the picture can start out weak but slowly get more competent as you've been drawing for more minutes/hours because everytime you start a picture your brain has to ease into it, so that's why it's good to "warm up" with gestures or something non-committal or serious to get into a flow
>my drawings are getting worse
you're just getting better at noticing your mistakes
Stop being a pussy and caring about views. Get your shitposting ass off of this chinese image board and improve your art.
Once you git gud you git views. Never stop posting. Never give up you mother fucker.
There are people who cares about views? Isn't LAS supposed to get yourself to draw and get better? Who the fuck cares about how many views they get on their shitty sketches and studies?
Alright I just checked imgur for the first time : I get between 25 and 80 views per submission. Woo, yeah, my life hasn't changed, it still means nothing.
Maybe you should stop being a little bitch and actually stick with this so your art will slowly improve which will give you more views if you care so much about views from faggots on an american speaking chinese site.
Tips for blending with graphite?
I use HB to 9B, yet I feel like I can't get dark enough values.
And what is that "vellum and graphite powder" meme? How does it work
>tfw had to hold it in to post in time
the word suffering was made for us especially
skeletal horror skeletal horror forever
but seriously they are randomly generated from a pool of 73 different topics so yeah this will sometimes happen. the only thing i guaranteed to not happen is that the same topic can't appear twice in one poll
