who artfag here?
also, first time ever posting my own stuff
draw bigger. it's sad to see people limit themselves to regular computer paper (yes I know I see your sketchbook). take like 20 newspapers and tape them together and paint and draw larger versions of this. drawing and painting on a larger format is HIGHLY therapeutic
Man it doesn't have to be much for it to be good. Try and finish every drawing in one sitting as you won't be too attracted to finishing it otherwise. Used to have the same problem
I haven't done anyting much bigger than this.. Although we are painting a huge mural in class
which I'm almost failing because I can't fucking stand drawing in front of peopleso at least I get some practice
I understand the feeling of drawing in front of others. Fuck them, but eventually you will learn to appreciate the rush that comes with someone over your shoulder. (The secret is to love your work more than yourself.) The best art comes from the most fucked up people. Seriously stop drawing on tiny paper. From now on, if you love me and love yourself, you will only draw on a minimum of 18x24 and always give yourself a solid background/back drop color. This type of work will thrive on a larger scale. And NEVER let ANYONE tell you to draw 'realistically.' it will fuck ur shit up beyond repair. the type of work you are doing is for your soul. it will unlock your creativity and imagination, but you will ultimately suffer (mentally) to create the best work you have ever seen.
First time using acrylic paint, done in November I think
fuck tumblr. do you understand OP isn't showing us a drawing of his normie girlfriend? do you realize most robots have the hidden ability to portray their most acute emotions of pain and suffering in NEETdom through painting and drawings of this stature. I'm not saying it's the scariest, best shit I've seen and OP knows he has many bridges to cross and burn, but it's better than a fast food caricature by a long shot. It has depth and meaning on a scale that involves themes of suffering and despair completely relatable to r9k. I'm not speaking to OP on the behalf of his work now, but rather I am having a conversation with who I anticipate his potential will make him in the future.
I'm working on this piece right now,
I call it "Social Scizophrenia". I don't know whether to keep the falling marbles and the deteriorated background.
You need to buy 1,000 different paint brushes and learn how to work under a needle point. This also looks as if it would have done better in pen but using acrylic/paint to give yourself a better background/ initial layer for the masses you have. I can tell by the way you created this, you were very eager to put your main idea down, but got a little lost in the freedom that painting was giving you. You probably didn't take very many breaks and/or didn't stop and stand 10' away from your work to get a better idea of how it looks from different angles and vantage points. I can imagine it's very clear that I am responding a lot in this thread and my writing is very distinct, but I wish for you all the best. Some day in the future, I will show the world outside r9k who we are using my influence in art and architecture. That is all. Goodnight and good luck to you all.
did this one during autumn. thanks a lot for the response guys it means so much. I live in Norway and it is very easy for me to get isolated because I live in a small city, and the only two friends that I have are away in the military so I get a lot of time for this.
Thank you very much, that means a lot, and nothing that I have taken a picture of yet. I'll see what else I can post up.
Thanks a lot for the advice, but I have a running theme in my pieces and i try incoporating the meaning of the piece to go alongside the style. and this one was purposely made to encaspulate the frantic and sensory chaoticness that a person with Scizophrenia would feel at a bar.
You fellow robots should check out the work of Agnes Cecile
same style as last one. I have two pen drawings left that I havent't posted. I'm planning to sleep soon, but I'll try and stay up a little longer if you guys want.
I get a progression of a monster growing in a cold void. Very Steve Niles like.
Im working on this unfinished piece right now. Its supposed to encaspulate the feelings of how a lesbian sees a man
Drawing is the only thing that kept me sane when I was in the loony bin.
sure, I really enjoy photography as well. I have an instagram acc but I never use the # on anyhting I post. I'm sorry but I I'm to affraid of what could happen if I gave up my acc on here.
I am. But honestly I'm pretty shit. Sometimes though. I get in a mood and do halfway Decent stuff.
Stop posting trash. Your shit is garbage. It's obvious you can't draw for shit and are hiding behind muh style to stay in your comfort zone. One shitstick trick pony.
The only drawing that has anything resembling aesthetic value is >>25878524 and judging by your other pics it's just a fluke.
L O O M I S
Thanks for the reminder to keep this therapeutic shit up
I think you're on the other end of the spectrum. I would rather look at art of this quality and style than something more conventional.
I enjoy OP's art and agree the one you linked separately is probably the best in this thread.
You don't have to be such a dick. There will always be someone more technically skilled than you somewhere - but if you can make something evocative or something that resonates with people, you will touch on what people actually want to experience when they consume that media
>than something more conventional.
I wasn't telling OP to start drawing anime or classical realism, you huge fucking retard. This isn't me telling him to abandon his """""""style""""""" in favor of something conventional. It's me telling him that he's garbage at drawing. I'm telling him to git gud.
There is nothing more cringeworthy and pathetic than untalented piece of fucking filth seeking cover behind muhhhhh personal style.
Garbage is garbage is garbage.
Thanks. I'll definitely try. Here's another by me.
Skull study I did in class. I don't even know what animal it is.
I only used a 2b pencil, is using a range of pencils the next step for me? Constructive criticism appreciated.
no one have ever learnt me anything about drawing so I'm learning it by myself. It might take me longer time that way, but I do this out of fun.. not to prove something . Anyways I do see your point, and I do want to improve so I can finally impress myself, so I'll try hard and work on it.
OP i just want you to know that people advertise their stuff on forums all the time and on an anonymous forum people only take interest if it seems genuinely unique and appealing to them. You've already made this happen.
Keep working at it and practicing but don't sweat the harsher criticism. It will all come naturally.
Your shading is pretty good, but I can't imagine any animal that has a skull shaped like that, so I would guess your next step is working on construction/outlines? You can't really go wrong as long as you keep practicing, though.
what do you mean by custom decks? and thanks
I don't know whether it's me or maybe the head you studied but the perspective seems odd. Though yeah I would say to move on to a range. However are you sniffing to get that smooth detail? If so try to break that habit. It'll hurt you in the long run.
ive done a few spray paints on skateboards before, but i dont have any at hand :(
Holy shit get cancer. I suppose you're not allowed to criticize movies unless you're a director, right? Someone call the critics. Or anyone who's ever criticized a movie, in fact.
>It will all come naturally.
It won't without any effort.
His "style" consists of spazzing his brush on a paper and doing random lines. It relies on the way the brush strokes make it seem as if the object was drawn to look 3D and also on how the darker parts of the strokes make it seem as if any shadowing was done. It takes no skill to emulate this shit. Most of the work is being done by the viewers brain automatically. It's like when you see things in clouds. It's your imagination.
If he had any clue how to draw properly he could actually develope his fucking style and make it not look like garbage.
im not sure if i'll ever finish it desu, ive been at it for well over 2 weeks now- losing motivation desu
The way that you just described it is...exactly what I was thinking, but I thought that is what made it unique.
I can't do that. I have some pretty artistic friends and none of them have made anything like that. can you emulate it?
And why do you keep wishing bad things on other people, cussing, and acting out so much? Jesus dude grow up
I can't really ''rate myself or anything'', but I tend to try and experiment a bit in most creative platforms. I've gotten a few compliments though. I usually work with composition, color, and lighting.
But then again, I haven't got any direct training here either.
Yh I moved about a lot, which I should do less of. I'd like to study from the same skull, use a range of pencils and double the time spent on it.
It would be interesting to compare them and see the development of my work.
>but I thought that is what made it unique.
Only because you have no sense of aesthetics. It looks buttfuckingugly. The proportions are garbage and unappealing, just like the poses. It's shit all around.
>I can't do that
You didn't seem like artistically developed person anyway.
>I have some pretty artistic friends and none of them have made anything like that.
Maybe because once you know how to draw you stop using methods to fake unsuspecting and unknowledgeable viewers into thinking you have any skill?
>can you emulate it?
Yes. Not now because I'm at work. But have a look at this bullshit I drew when I had no idea how faces and shadows work. This is a perfect example how to fool idiots into thinking you can draw. I literally scribbled his face randomly.
>Jesus dude grow up
Holy shit fucking kill yourself.
Fuck off with your degenerate art. You're talentless and your art is absolutely disgusting.
>Only because you have no sense of aesthetics. It looks buttfuckingugly. The proportions are garbage and unappealing, just like the poses. It's shit all around.
You're wrong because you don't agree with my opinions about something subjective!
>You didn't seem like artistically developed person anyway.
OK champ :)
>Maybe because once you know how to draw you stop using methods to fake unsuspecting and unknowledgeable viewers into thinking you have any skill?
If you judge each piece's skill independently and hold the artist to it then by your logic no artist would ever be able to "downgrade" their perceived skill level by making something more abstract/less realistic
>Yes. Not now because I'm at work. But have a look at this bullshit I drew when I had no idea how faces and shadows work. This is a perfect example how to fool idiots into thinking you can draw. I literally scribbled his face randomly.
>Fool idiots into thinking you can draw
My my, assuming you know what others think of that? Because in my opinion...this looks like garbage
>Holy shit fucking kill yourself.
Do you only talk to people like this on anonymous forums, or are you always this disrespectful simply because someone is discussing something with you? Because either way that's kind of fucked up man.
Forgive me but i'm about to just start spamming pages from my sketchbook
I need to be up in 5 hours.
Keep the thread going if you want.
Thanks a lot to everyone for the critique and compliments.
And hey I never implied that I think my stuff is good, because I don't. I'm still pretty new to this and will obviously try and improve with time, but we shall see how it goes.
The other day I had a bad day out of the anniversary of some painful memories. Spent it marathoning my favourite anime, smoking weed, and following Bob Ross videos on MSPaint.
Is this art?
>You're wrong because you don't agree with my opinions about something subjective!
>aesthetics is subjective
OK BRO. AESTHETICS IS SUBJECTIVE. VERY ENLIGHTENING AND EYE OPENING STATEMENT INDEED. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOU JUST PROVED EVERY SINGLE PERSON EVER WHO STUDIED ART TECHNIQUE AND STYLES IN ORDER TO GET BETTER AS A SILLYNILLY FOOL. HE HE HEHEH.
Art isn't subjective. Good literature > bad literature. Good painting > bad painting. Good music > bad music. The more refined one is in a specific artform the more will he be able to differentiate between garbage and masterpieces. You've already proven how art literate you are.
>If you judge each piece's skill independently and hold the artist to it then by your logic no artist would ever be able to "downgrade" their perceived skill level by making something more abstract/less realistic
A bad artsmanship will radiate through whatever style the "artist" abuses and rapes in order to hide his lack of skill. You can literally tell peoples skill apart by seeing only stickman drawings. Of course this sounds like rocket science to an art pleb like you so no wonder it didn't cross your mouthbreather mind.
>My my, assuming you know what others think of that? Because in my opinion...this looks like garbage
I'm not even gonna point out how you just proved me right and contradicted your previous bullshit.
Just for lols point out what changes would improve the drawing? Or what specifically you think is badly done?
>wahhw ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh be polite
It looks great, anon. Thank you. I needed a new background too.
that's the only thing i do all day, draw
I like it a lot. It's a nice moody setting for something mysterious. I see gaslamps lighting a fog bound street:from this point i'do take out my sketchbooks and start working out foreground stuff,defining images with creeping clarity as you coax the viewer's eye to the monstrous form about to pounce at the center.
Who else here failed illustrator?
What I was reminded of when seeing OP's work was Japanese watercolors, and he should go stare at a few to inspire him to try more.
I wish more NEETs would use these expanses of time for creative pursuits,instead of posting endless Ha Ha Wagecuck threads. It will always reward you,even the ones you consider failures. All it need do is communicate:a mood,a raw emotion,a lesson hard learned. And I always felt that an artist should strive not for realism,but to make their imagery definitively theirs.
this is the kind of work that should stay in your archives and never see the light of day
It's a sketch,part of the process of making good more elaborate larger works.
I did a lot of research sketching for this strip. The columns and the staff. It pays to put in the homework.
I actually graduated on the deans list. I just decided not to continue.
>acoustic/folk indie whatever
> 4 years of diverse electronic music
>Original rap crew, straight outta athens, The Dopest Folks

how can i learn to draw art, just mostly to make an average 4chan comic
im not creative, can visually see things in my mind, nor have i ever put any serious effort into drawing besides retarded doodles
this is sweet as fuck
keep going! it's so fun to look at!
I like this a lot, the clouds look really neat
I live near the mazza museum, kek
Here is another one that required researching. It started out as an ice giant then evolve to its dragonlike final form.
not a whole lot. it was supposed to be drawn from life so I was standing and looking down when I drew it. the hand symbol is just a shadow puppet of a dog, i used to do it in front of lights as a kid and find my hands doing it idly a lot.
Been drawing for years,and doing the webcomic for 2 or so. The first 30 strips of it are roughs,but after that I started putting serious work into them,circumstances forcing me to draw in unlikely places. Come and see!
Walking into work. Checking in later.
I hate these goddamn iphone pics may they burn in hell
I don't have a tumblr but it looks good.
My only concern is that you don't watermark your art. Image stealing is a huge issue online, you should at least put your handle, name somewhere so people can recognize it as your work.
>figure most of /r9k/ is socially awkward but brilliant savants
>this thread happens
>realize most of you are actually just stupid entirely
>You don't have enough respect for yourself or other people to express yourself in art or any other form of creativity! And I'm an NYU Art School graduate, SUCKA!... You SUCK!
Opie, Do you know of Kobayashi Yuu's artwork?
Used to wheatpaste a shit ton, but this was back in my home town where the cops were so underworked that they started staking out areas I frequented. I've since moved and I'd like to get back into it but I don't have free access to the industrial printer I used to use and I can't justify paying to get stuff printed.
I draw anime 95% of the time but sometimes I try to draw something realistic to feel less useless
