Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

Artchad here. What the frick? Are all the onion-chans down? ...
Ok, my site is also down, but but... the others have responsibilities... xD
>>1547 Hi artchad. How've you been
>>1568 I've been great. My spiritual development is making leaps since I've joined a community of people, who are also interested in stuff like that. The thing I'm currently working on, is to create time frames in which I can be creatively active. Which is kind of rough without privacy. > . < I hope your also developing sir. <3
>>1569 >I hope your also developing sir. <3 Slowly but surely :)

What's a drawing tablet I can get that has a huge work area, won't die in a year, and won't rape my wallet? I have a Huion Giano that I'm about to give up on because of how easily it breaks.
>>1256 > won't die in a year, Buying new technology is always a risk. There are many different tablets out there, just pick one. People usually buy a tablet qnd use that for eternity, while the market changes, so I have no clue what the newest hottest shit it.
Is fire Alpaca any good as software? Also, one there one program that was only to mkae Ink-like drawings? (forgot the name)
>>1327 > Is fire Alpaca any good as software? Don't know. Wouldn't touch proprietary software. > Also, one there one program that was only to mkae Ink-like drawings? What would evem be a program dedicated to ink drawing? While using Drawpile someone once told me that it feels like I'm drawing with ink. Krita, GIMP, both support basic full opacity brushes. Although I always recommend Krita, because it has a focus on drawing and painting.
>Software Krita >Hardware Inspiron 5748, Wacom Intuos CTH-490, planning an upgrade for both of them to https://pcpartpicker.com/list/P8rGMb and https://www.storexppen.com/buy/artist-13-2nd.html >Style There was a style? >Tool (i.e. Pen and Paper, Stencils...) Paper, pencils(carbon and colored), sometimes sticky notes.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread - Sketches Edition. Do you usually refine the figure (face, accessories, hair, drapes) when sketching or its easier to just putting a landmark then refine it later in lineart?

English is my third language, so can anon redo the following process/steps in step by step short video because I'm a visual learner and I find it hard to understand these. >In December of 1950, Saturday Evening Post cover artist J.C. Leyendecker outlined his basic method in a letter to a student. >“My first step is to fill a sketch pad with a number of small rough sketches about two by three inches, keeping them on one sheet so you can compare them at a glance. >“Select the one that seems to tell the story most clearly and has an interesting design. Enlarge this by square to the size of the magazine cover, adding more detail and color as needed. >“You are now ready for the model. First make a number of pencil or charcoal studies. Select the most promising and on a sketch canvas do these in full color, oil or water with plenty of detail. Keep an open mind and be alert to capture any movement or pose that may improve your original idea. >“You may now dismiss your model, but be sure you have all the material needed with separate studies of parts to choose from, for you are now on your own and must work entirely from your studies. >“This canvas will somewhat resemble a picture puzzle, and it is up to you to assemble it and fit it into your design at the same time simplify wherever possible by eliminating all unessentials. All this is done on tracing paper and retraced on the final canvas. >“Your finished painting may be any size to suit you, but is usually about twice the size of the reproduction. >“As a rule, I start work with a round or flat sable using a thin wash, with turps as a medium. Keep shadows very transparent, and as the work progresses, apply the paint more thickly on lighted areas, adding some poppy oil or linseed oil if necessary, and using a larger flat bristle brush for the heavier paint, but still keeping the shadows thin and vibrant.

so someone can help me to improve the volume in my drawings specially in the line art with some books or videos, i think most of my drawings look flat when im making the lineart
I've been getting Xp-pen getting shilled to me recently. Are they worth it? >>470 So the drawing gloves aren't a placebo effect?
>>1551 Not at all, your hand gets sweaty and it will drag on the tablet and mess up your strokes. The glove prevents it entirely.

Looking for books on drawing/rendering reflections, refractions, caustics, reflective/matte/transclucent surfaces

Isn't Andrew Loomis racist though? Anon 02/01/2022 (Tue) 03:56:30 No.1368 [Reply]
Doesn't he draw some really racist caricatures?

>>1368 > Doesn't he draw some really racist caricatures? "racism" wasn't really a big thing back then as it is tried to be made today. He just exaggerated his subjects in a way that he seemed to capture it's essence best.
>>1368 >>1369 >>1371 Then he's certainly the man I want teaching my kids arts tbh.
