Is this book just a garbage meme?
The idea of "shutting off your left side of your brain" sounds like new-age nonsense to me.
Is this book, or another one that seems similar called "Key to Drawing", really worth wasting money on? Is there another book teaching concrete ideas and theory of what drawing and painting is and how to approach it that isn't written by a bunch of democrat sjw love hippies?
Don't know about this one, heard it's shit, but I know that Keys to drawing is a pretty good introduction to drawing if you still don't quite know how to learn, symbol drawing, importance of the old masters etc.
The only drawback it that it's very text-heavy, but you can grab the free pdf, so why not.
I just returned a cintiq 22 HD touch to Costco after 3 months due to being a poorfag. Although I have been drawing with intous for years, I couldn't help but love the experience of gimicky on-screen drawing. So is there any cheaper alternatives that are of the same quality, what are your experiences with them? (some seem a bit fishy and I don't want to shill out my money blindly)
I have a huion, and it works pretty well, mine is gt 191, but there are other pretty good models, i think the kamvas 221 is the best from all of them, so far its working perfectly, with minor problems, that i think you could get on a wacom too.
I bought it online but you need to watch for it because it disappears off the site for a few months periodically. But it's great when it's on there because you can abuse the return policy.
Is it really good with pressure sensitivity? I've read on some reviews they say the pressure is very odd and you have to press the pen a certain way to get any strokes. I don't know what your art style is but do you think this tablet would work for someone who presses lightly and does a painterly style?
I am going to spent 200$ on drawing equipment to master perspective traditionally.
This is in my chart
>Pilot Hi-tec C
What else do I need?
Not that useful, honestly it will save some minutes but overall a ruler and a 90° triangle do the same thing
Nigga just use a ruler
>What else do you need
HONESTLY you don't need that many shit, so I wouldn't worry that much about it, from my experience though
>Trigonometry set, absolutely essential and will make the T square useless
>Non shitty, non metal, transparent ruler
Make sure it won't be annoying by extended use and that it won't leave marks on the paper
>A protractor, to read precise angles
>a LOT of blue and red pencils
>3 shitloads of patience
Godspeed anon, perspective's a bitch, remember to study lines and ellipses like a madman, pray to Robertson and never to give up.
I'm not last anon.
I think elipse templates is more to technical draw or concept design. No need to training or sketches. But you need a clipboard or something to paper stay in 20° / 30°.
So I'm thinking of getting some kind of screen tablet since apparently it's much easier to draw with than a regular tablet( I have a wacom bamboo create).
What kind of screen tablet should i get? People mention cintique but apparently there are better and cheaper options?
If you can get lucky try to buy one of the older 21UX models. Some of my fav niplords still use those dinosaurs. Preferably get the 2nd generation if you can though those are hard to come buy and at a good price.
>t. I can't afford good tools
I digress. I'll never go back to a plain tablet. I'd rather draw on paper and scan it in than it and I've been using one for years.
What's your thought on 3d arts?
why do some incredibly talented artists only draw porn?
why are you so pathologically obsessed with this shit. I know you. You keep postIng things related to porn and how you're so asspained about it. Porn is incredibly lucrative? Everyone has fantasies and its liberating as a talented artist to be able to create them on a whim?
Dude, that waist looks really close to that girl pic posted in the NGMI cry thread. Does Sakimichan post here? Is she fit? I don't know what she looks like actually.
My Drawing series titled Erasing the Outlines. It consists of 5 life sized drawings. Materials: Paper, acrylic paint, graphite powder, charcoal, fixative.
While watching the drawings a viewer can contemplate on the inner empty space and try to erase the outline between the self and the surroundings.
The drawing that is not in the first picture. Also the first one of the series.
HEY how's my painting coming along. It smells nice.
What's the focus of this painting? Only the clouds are too bold and distracting from the landscape. My advice is too soften them, gray the blue slightly and work on more detail in the trees.
IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice. We should not have to make new threads or post in the Drawthread with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make someone proud.

There's a new (and cleaner) sticky in town! You can see it at:
TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

>Your local life drawing class
Life drawing is an indispensable tool in your art career. Do not be intimidated based on your skill level - there will always be someone worse than you and someone better than you. Use this opportunity to meet new artists for learning, critique, and growth.
These are some of my very first attempts at drawing gesture. Am I on the right track? Any habits I should avoid? I feel like I'm focusing more on the contours than the "motion" of the poses.
Jim Lee, current publisher of DC Comics and former publisher of Wildstorm Comics, says that most incoming artists got good by their late teens and early twenties, and that it's extremely rare for an artist to get good after that point.
So what does /ic/ say to that?
You have to understand the implications of what he's saying.
>most incoming artists
That means a majority, but not everyone.
>got good by their late teens and early twenties
Most of the new artists already knew what they wanted to do since they were young so they succeed sooner.
>and that it's extremely rare for an artist to get good after that point
Yes, because most who are incoming already knew what they wanted to do. Most meaning that the least have to be the extremely rare people who got good after that point.
He's just stating generalities that everyone would obviously know. It's like saying college graduates get entry jobs while it's extremely rare for a person within their fifties to career change.
It doesn't change anything and shouldn't put fear into you just because you think you're old.
i need followers...
How i gain some people like ilya-senpai does?
Where can I find good photos for figure drawing so I can emulate that atelier experience?
Help! Can anyone check my attempt at values & anatomy? Trying to take this a bit further & I'm rapidly reaching my limits!
