hey guys, so i grew up a poor fag but i've had access to computers all my life and when i was 14 i saved up and bought a drawing tablet (a shitty one but still)
ever since i've been doing daily studies and i've gotten very good at painting on photoshop and painttool sai and stuff like that
but i've never had enough money to get into traditional art until now, so i just went out and bought a bunch of brushes and gouache tubes, and a nice heavy expensive moleskin notebook
i have no idea how to use these, i only have some small experience with water colours and i've never had any formal training
what do? how do i learn? my older brother showed me how to mix paint but he's gone to college now and i don't know anyone who could teach me
i've read dozens of books on anatomy and drawing and i have 4+ years experience with painting on photoshop but i have no idea how to apply these skills in a physical medium with real big brushes and canvases
what are some good resources that could teach me these stuff? like a good online video series or some books
You should start by buying cheap shit to start out with.
The process in traditional is a lot different than digital, because you can't just undo and redo and repaint everything whenever and however you want.
IMO Since you haven't done it before, you should just try to get the feel for it first. Don't try to make a master painting or even necessarily a painting yet. Do a similar thing that you would do when sketching, draw random objects/shapes and try to get familiar with how paint blends and works.
God this subject is so bare bones in terms of resources and accessibility.
Old one died, post/talk animation
Anyone know of any good art documentaries?
Unfortunately I really dont know of any so I cant contribute.
But any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
An extension off the other thread which began wandering a ton. Upload folders of artists' images you have collected and post them here for others.

Also I guess feel free to request stuff, then if anons have it please share. I have some hi-res things that may be of interest to people (Velazquez, Berkey, Loomis, Cornwell, some others, probably none of this stuff is very easy to find). Also more general stuff like Frazetta and stuff. Oh, and all the images from Jeff Jones' old site, back from when he was alive and his site was actually up.
And I'm requesting the other guy who showed his folders to show share some of it. A quick look has me interested in DanielC, Jana, Bjorn Hurri, Jeremy Enecio, Justin Sweet, Lukias, Min yum, Mitch, Skureal, openanewworld, and Whit.
Oh, and here are my artist folders. I'm not that good at organizing things though. But yeah, this is a good chunk of my stuff, also have some other folders elsewhere. Lemme know if anything is of interest.
