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?

>>1725 Someone claiming to be the BO posted a couple days ago on Trashchan: https://trashchan.xyz/meta/thread/64.html#226 What's his goal and why didn't he write anything here is anyone's guess.

>>1726 Thanks! Oh, I see you're right, Anon. Looks like the question engendered a technical discussion there that effectively sidestepped the basic issue: can we migrate /loomis/ automatically here? The answer is yes. The Trashmin has a migration pipeline already in place. @BO If you're here, can you please say so with a BO capcode? The rest of us want to know that /loomis/ will be safe. Please don't wait long. Stuff happens... > pic-related :D
>>1726 >>1727 Sorry, I should've mentioned it here as well. My initial understanding was that the migration would have to be done by us somehow, when in reality admin does it all for you. Yes, I plan to put in a formal migration request soon(tm), I've just been very busy lately. Even though this board may be dead, migrating it to a different site may give it a boost, and either way it's still an important archive for the few artists and aspiring artists that want to learn.

>>1728 >Yes, I plan to put in a formal migration request soon(tm) Excellent! I expect it will be seen with favor by the Trashmin. /loomis/ has always been a pretty chill, drama-free board and that's what everyone on trash wants there. I'd suggest you put a request in soon, BO. He himself is getting adjusted to having a bigger workload on his plate there, and as you mentioned, anons can be very busy! > pic-related This board is an invaluable resource to the Internets IMO. I believe in it enough that I would have claimed it myself just to preserve it on trashchan if you had gone missing! That's not true of many boards, so thanks for maintaining such a good one for everyone here, Anon! Cheers. :)

>>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.
What would a good drawing tablet be for starters? I had a Huion Giano years ago but I didn't use it much and it died within a year. I liked how big it was but all the Wacom ones that size are $500+.

>>1701 Forgive me if I'm wrong on this I'm not an expert. Though I still can appreciate these practicing papers, it looks good in particular that you've a pursuit of difficult angles and contours. You've either a hunger to learn or genuinely enjoy doing it, or both. It looks very good. But, are the lips not too well defined in terms of dark pencil strikes, or are the lips less concentrated on and therefore less deliberate in terms of their structure? I say this because they're not quite claymation mouths, but rather it's as though every character has makeup on somewhere in the lip region. If you were to look at various historical coins and the way the illustrators have defined their mouths, I imagine theirs would look more abstract than yours currently do and the purpose would I'm guessing be to avoid that effect. It's just something I thought when I looked at these. I'm a moron who can't draw. Thanks for your time. Oooh look, nudie girls
>>1510 This reminded me of both weak weeaboo femboy animus, and of Pixar if they had commissioned a series of illustrated books/comics to sell alongside the Toy Story movie. The latter could be high praise. I don't know. It looks good enough for you to be able to provide a thing like that. As for the anime protagonist I can't see anything wrong with him either, except his arms and neck look swole thicc compared to the usual thin cheesestring spaghettae. It's more accurate what you did mind you, and there is a physiological understanding in boxing that the more you can strengthen and thicken your neck, the less likely you are to get knocked out. It means your boy there can take a punch, if that's what you were going for. He's more Teen-Adult Link and less lil' peepee Kingdom Hearts boy or something..
