How do you develop patience and get rid of this urge to git gud fast which ironically just slows you down since you end up rushing the exercises? How do you become humble and appreciate the small improvements you made instead of comparing yourself to masters who spent over 10+ years practicing their craft?
So I'm planning to start an oil painting using exclusively toxic pigments.
So far I've only nailed down Flake White (Lead Based) but I'm trying to acquire legitimate pairs green (arsenic) and Cinnabar (mercury). In particular I'm looking for Paris green.
Do you know of any good sources to find these paints or least the pigments at best? I would greatly prefer not to have to mull my own paint seeing this could be messy and well toxic.
I also know I'm missing more pigments and the bigger the pallet the easier it is for me.
I had a teacher in the states who poured out a vial of Mercury onto every student's desk. She was a French woman and she didn't realize that it was toxic and illegal to own. She had to go around cleaning every student's desktop with cleaning supplies. A lot of my classmates dug right in and enjoyed playing with the mercury, but I just enjoyed seeing it pool over my desk... it still comes to mind in dreams.
OP here, wanted to add my painting is going to be edgy and about death because it is a painting that can kill you. The message is going to be an Apocalypse of the soul.

That does nothing and metallic mercury isn't illegal to own (US) in fact you can buy it online or even some small time miner/prospector supply stores out west. It is being phased out/illegal to use in certain applications however much like lead paint is not longer allowed to be sold for household use.
Hey /ic/, i dont know if this is the best place to ask, but i have a comic i am trying to get off the floor. I have been writing it for over a year. I want to know if anyone has been in the same predicament I have, and how to get out of it. I cant draw, and am not willing to wait to get better, because i need my comic to get off the floor soon. How did you find an artist who is willing to work for the comic for free knowing that the pay for the comics is the reward??
Would people buy these kind of T-Shirts?
Gentlemen, how do we fix western animation?
Animation degrees no longer require talent, but if your parents can afford 100k in debt. Western Animation is a free for all now with no guidelines to what is currently good anymore.
QUICK, a phenomenom has occured! Literally 4chan AND tumblr hate the new Powerpuff!
You've been contacted by CN to turn opinion around! How do you change her?
First off get rid of the fucking hips. Jesus Christ who thought of that shit for a child?
Um hi, so some of my friends says that you can get criticism of your art from here. So im gonna try my first time to get some opinions from 4chan. I know this looks like a bad idea for starters but I'm gonna wing it. So here's my shitty drawing, hit me with anything you got. Suggestions, critiques, help, anything. Sorry if my drawing is bad and I draw it on a notebook.
I'll give it to you straight: This is not the place to come for what you want. This is probably the most inconsistent board on all of 4chan and will leave you high and dry much more often than not. Do not rely on this place for tips on improving. Just read the sticky (the very first post on the first page that never changes. Has the painting of the old man reading the paper smoking a pipe) and after that, idk. Search for the beginner thread if you insist on staying. Just type in /beg/ in the search bar.
As far as this immediate picture goes, it's not the worst thing I've ever seen on this board so congrats.
Glaring flaws are the feet and hands, but especially the hand pumping the shotgun and the foot on the same side. Looks like his wrist is broken and it looks like his foot tilts at an obviously unnatural angle. Just looks fucked up. The shotgun itself doesn't seem to flow very well. The angle near the trigger looks alright, but the butt of the gun looks like it's facing straight at the viewer instead of being viewed slightly from the bottom like the rest of the gun. No pelvis, it just looks like his torso leads straight to his legs. The excess belt right under the butt of the gun needs to either be shorter or sag a little if you plan to keep it that length indefinitely. I'm tired af so I'm not gonna write anymore tonight, but there's plenty more you could do better even at your skill level.
Who else /aiming to be an arts teacher/ here?
Maybe if I get good enough one day, but dealing with /beg/'s bullshit is already kind of enough for me. As a teacher though, they would have trust in me and that would make things easier because I could just tell them to do something and they would. That's all art really is.

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies, however, all forms of stylization is welcome here. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Hello! I worked on this a lot today. As you can probably tell, I'm not experienced with backgrounds at all, but I'm trying to improve! May I have some pointers on what to work on?
Did this up quick to meet a deadline but now it got extended and I wanna re-do it but I also should probably just move along and work on drawing up info on their world and species.
