How mousey of us.
The talent has successfully been cordoned off into its own ghetto.
Here's how my corner looked in the end.
>>867 Ah yes by the way: I remember someone on this thread lamenting the fact they couldn't upload files of a certain file size because they were too large/wide. If you want to post them without resizing them, just put them under a spoiler. Apparently, the way thumbnails are made is dependent on the original filesize, if it's larger than a set amount it just crashes and won't let you post. Spoilering the file though solves the issue, since no thumbnail is saved.

Note to all artists who only upload to twitter and don't care about image quality: What's the point?
>>825 Given that I've recently heard several Gook twitter artists had to clean their whole archives because of censorship laws, very little outside of having more exposure I guess. Fuck most social media.
>>826 That's not the point, exactly.

>>64 Yes. The regular thumbnail size is 200x200. You might want to make it something like 150x150.
>>65 Changed size again, tell me how it feels
>>89 It's the same size as regular thumbnails now but most spoiler images on boards are distinctly smaller than the max thumbnail size. They're usually 128px but I think it makes the lines on image a little too small so I like 150px. Posting multiple spoiled images to see what it's like.

I also practiced lines from the Draw from the Right side of your Brain workbook
>>849 >>856 >>857 For beginners it's essential to learn the so called "fundamentals". Many people mean slightly different things when talking about "fundamentals" though. I'd say the knowledge based fundamentals are: - Drawing in proportion (hand eye coordination; Being able to copy what you see.) - Shading (Understanding how light makes things appear three dimensional.) - Composition (How to lead the viewers eye through clever use of 'value contrast', 'color contrast', 'shape contrast', etc., the arrangement of different elements in your scene, besides other things.) - Color theory - And everything I've just forgot. Watch the stuff from proko once your hand eye coordination and arm muscles have developed a bit. https://invidious.snopyta.org/search?q=proko You can also listen to the podcast of Stan and Marshall. https://invidious.snopyta.org/search?q=proko+podcast

>>849 Oh, and if you're specifically worried about your faces and heads looking like shit, then watch the following: https://invidious.snopyta.org/playlist?list=PLtG4P3lq8RHHFhiyjXP4UT-yUo7pC13GQ I just recommend Proko, because that's where I've started and it helped me a lot. If you have major troubles applying what you've learned from those videos, then start copying things you like until your hand and mind get used to drawing.
>>856 >>857 keep going Right Side of the Brain and follow each chapter and the exercises. I'm just starting chapter 9 and it's worked wonders.

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.

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?

Why is doing blook heads surprisingly difficult, and am I supposed to grind these heads until something clicks?
Should I invest in a Wacom tablet for getting into digital, or is Huion good enough? I had a small Huion one and and broke the stylus before getting much practice with it, but it felt pretty cramped and difficult to get to respond to pressure properly. I was already planning to get something with more surface area, but I don't want it to be something I need to do twice.
>>831 Huion is good quality, tablets and pens are well-built and should last a while. their drivers can be fucky but if I can get it working on ganoo+linoox you can get it working on wangblows.

>>527 Not sure about the other anon, but working with physical mediums I just use the full piece of paper I have. I usually draw on cheap printer paper. I like that it is thicker, tougher, soaks up ink a bit better, and has a nicer texture compared to gray newsprint.

I saved these two examples a while back on drawing grass. Are there any other examples on how to ink foliage out there? It seems like resources on natural things like trees and rocks are kind of scarce.

>>656 I'm aware of this video, sorry I should have clarified. I only work traditionally, so i'm looking for relevant methods.

Always liked to draw as a kid. As i grew up i developed a dream/ambition to become a great artist, but later my motivation devolved to just wanting to impress some chick that frequented the same drawing studio, in the end my superior drawing skills didn't help me woo her, because i was a coward at heart, but i did get a love letter from some other chick that i didn't care about. Eventually my romantic interest moved to another country, i quit art and started wasting my time on imageboards, and doing drugs. After a wasted decade i got bored from being a degenerate and became a somewhat productive normie, now all that's left from my artistic past is this bump on my middle finger from holding the pencil.

I personally always used to doodle on the border of the notebook and always wanted to get into an arts career, but knowing that I would end up with no job with that I decided to get into STEM. I ended up going nowhere for four years and this quarantine finally made me get into it. Now the issue will be not throwing the towel.
Wanting to get a hobby, although I dont spend too much time since I prefer writing for the moment. And also wanting to learn the ability to draw anime
