Looking for more concepts to practice.. Monsters/creatures
So I see this painting on the tv series Mad Men. A colourful impressionist cityscape and thought it would be a nice thing to put on my wall. I looked for years but couldn't find the artist's name. Forum queries remained either unanswered or led me on wild goose chases. I did some digging the other day and send an email to a stage prop leasing company in LA. Asking them if they knew of it. They said they didn't but gave me the name of another prop leasing company. I emailed them but they never answered. A day later the guy emails me back and tells me he found it and sends me a link to a low resolution image of the painting on this other leasing companies' website. I contact this company and after a lot of back and forward they say they will sell me a print of the painting. After weeks of waiting I am yet to hear from them and I am not surprised, I think they just can't be bothered. So I remembered a show I watched online about a town in China where the villagers paint authenticate looking copies of anything. So I got a price from them for $160.
Its frustrating when you are fixated on desiring to own something and can't get your hands on it. Not sure if its worthwhile pursing the China thing but it might be a means to the end. Its a shame those dudes in LA just don't give an arse.
Another basic concept I made. Enjoy!
Why'd you lewd the teacher from the cramp twins
I've started creating artwork to put on tshirts, anyone think it looks alright?
What difference is there in character between "fine art" and commercial advertising?
Where do I go to learn about proper comic paneling construction?
the mccloud books aren't that thorough when it comes to page layouts, if you want a more in depth education on them, i'd recommend the strip panel naked youtube channel
and Jesse Hamm's comic tip twitter account. (he's been at it for a couple years and if you read through his entire archive you'll learn a lot about making comics.)
Neither of these are 100% layout focused, or cover 100% of what it takes to make a good comic layout, but it's the best I've found so far.
this is the only board that pretends we're not all anonymous, and have petty quarrels as if our social media/linkedin are on the line.
it is the strangest thing ever.
You know that's a pretty interesting observation. I think /ic/ might be super tiny. I only come here once every few months because it's full of angry jerks, but everytime I do it's so small that I get the feeling that even being anonymous a lot of people here /do/ know each other. It's that small. That even through text alone they know who is who sometimes. Then you've got your nosebros.
Also art style gives you away. If I posted my art I'd be recognized both here, and in some other places on 4chan.
Does it happen to you when you want to draw something and you know what you want to draw, but then you start drawing and some other idea comes to your mind, like, you look at your sketch and you tsee how you could a completely different thing out of it, and you like this new idea? But you like the old one too. And you just don't know what to draw. And you can't do both because they will be very similar. How do you cope with this?
Random pic cause I don't know what else to post.
>And you can't do both because they will be very similar.
Nobody tells me what to do, not even myself.
Hey, /ic/ I really wanted to ask you for advice.
What do you do when you want to draw but don't have the will and motivation for it?
I've always had a huge problem with the lack of assiduity even since I was a child and I honestly don't know what to do. Maybe it's sloth, maybe it's short attention span, but it really hurt not only my creativity, but also education and life in general. I often look at good art and feel very frustrated because I just can't force myself to do anything about my lack of motivation.
Has anyone ever had the same problem? I'd really appreciate any advice.
Get a softer kind of lead, like 4B - 6B.... Get a lot out in your sketchbook and keep moving without looking back. But complete everything you start.
A successful realization doesn't have to be perfect.
It's so hard to find good porn artists. The only ones I know are Sabu (pic related, thesabu.com), InCase, and Datura. Can you guys share some? Western or Japanese, either is good. Booru sites give me nothing but garbage, you have to go through so many bad pictures to find anything even remotely decent.
Stuff I look for in a porn artist:
- Great rendering skills
- Decent understanding of perspective (bad perspective really ruins an otherwise good drawing)
- Good understanding of anatomy (stylized anatomy is fine too)
If you know anyone who fills these 3 criteria, please share.
So how do I cure chronic procrastination?
>just do it
I can start like that but I won't be able to learn efficiently. Even if I somehow manage to go through my shit, the pain will come back the next day. That's the problem. I don't have energy to just "do it" everyday.

Say it with me. Not. Gonna. Make. It.
ever since i saw kjg i just assumed that's what most artists do - drawing directly from imagination.
but recently i've gotten more of the impression that the large majority of painters will use photos.
like pic related - how likely do you think it is he came up with this all in his head? the general idea, maybe, but supplemented with reference for the details, right?
100%. Imagination comes from putting together memories which come from references. The more and better you remember things, the less you have to use your time looking. The skill level of that city tells me that guy has drawn a lot of cities before and he's likely remembered specific things like how windows are, the stairs, color of lights, etc. Obviously if he doesn't remember something, he can always look at a ref, but you'll never know how much that is because yo don't know what's in his head either. You can only see what he's showing and at the end of the day, that's all that matters anyways. Refs or not, always strive to make your work the best it can be.
>make piece to celebrate the can-do spirit of America
>FEW YEARS LATER
>Fearless girl added. whole meaning is changed
> now is a subject of hate.
we artist shouldn't stand for this shit man.
