I wonder what bad habits you would pick up from drawing with a mouse.
As long as you concentrating on fundamentals, aren't cutting corners with construction, so on and so forth, the only detriment is that you're working with a medium that's a fucking pain in the ass and takes 5 times longer than using a pen.

Anyway, I am glad it did. I used to get in petty arguments all the time with the bitchfest that was the user base there. It didn't help that I posted some revealing shit about myself that made me doxxable, and when I dropped off that website I stayed low while picking up a new identity.

What sort of progress landmarks do you look for or imagine in your work? Milestones, i guess? There was that one ‘tiers of mastery’ thing but after tiers 3 everything looked the same or worse. For you persnally in your own work what are major milestones youre trying to meet?
After all, you do have intermediate goals and sight of where you’re headed, right anon?

I remember Corel Painter having that fake texture to it's brushes last I used it some years ago.

>> No.4169005


That is digital painting and we can all agree it's very, very good imitation of oils on canvas.
But what is mure more impresive than that canvas texture are brush strokes, brush economy (like he would literally think of every stroke and delicately put it down) and color theory.
Just brush strokes and colors tell you there is someone with expirience behind that painting.
So if anyone knows the author i would love to check his work.
And if anyone else love this kind of color work, i suggest to check (for those who dont know him) Nathan Fowkes

Look at Artstation and Instagram. There's young people that are getting good all the time because of all the resources available now than 10 years ago.

Nothing replaced conceptart.org so I don't think so and people keep purging their Instagrams. You can look up currently attending art students from like Brainstorm School or similar design schools though. The only real replacement for ca.org is the Massive Black forums but who knows when that'll open up.

No, thats just racial discrimination. Have you been to Korea? I have. There is a reason why they behave that way and its not due to racism. It’s a cultural thing due to centuries of war with other outsiders. Koreans tend to have very tight knit groups and communities and its very difficult for someone from the outside to integrate. It’s not racial.

You are right, I forgot that Rembrandt pulled out his iphone and took a photo of the whole city watch to then help with his painting at his studio. Sorry, got my facts mixed up.

Now, personally, I also use help photos but just as a reminder of positions I left things but I never draw or paint from them. The people I see using photographs the most often bring out out the soulless works. They use the eye of the camera as a crutch to their own untrained perception.

Hello Brian.
There is a reason portraits are so hard to get right, and why portrait painters were once so highly paid.
I spent over a year painting still lives from set ups to get really used to colour mixing, and to not rely on photographs to make decisions about grouping values and hues. But then you get to faces, with all the bones & muscles etc to take into account, all the tiny colour shifts and value changes across the skin, and the problem of putting down paint is so much harder.
Well done on this first effort, it will take you hundreds of portraits before you will satisfy yourself or /ic/, but don't worry about pleasing /ic/.

We're talking about a 2008-2009 product.
I have the same sitting here on my desk, I had to tape all the air gaps around the glass to make sure no dust got inside, because Wacom made it so well that the screen lifts up and let thes dust in. Dust that will never get out and forever taunt me from beneath the glass.
The backlight is CCFL and takes some time to light up.
You have to expertly overshoot the calibration to achieve good pen to cursor offset. And thanks god we have 4 points calibration now, unlike the two from the olden days.
When it gets hot the pointer tends to shake a little.
The colors are bad compared real monitors to but they are similar to what gets printed I guess.

I personally use the screen only for linework, then I disable the output and use it as a intuos when I want to color.
All the problems go away once the screen is off, no more wobbles or weird effects caused by radio interference.
It becomes literally an intuos.

Despite all the drawbacks it's still a workable tablet. These are all issues that old pros had to face, and yet they still managed to crank out good art.
If you want better color and less parallax get newer models.
Only people who are acquainted with older cintiq's quirks should get these products, otherwise they're in for disappointment.

Should one included realism to the point no normal person would care? Example is the fact when your palm is downward your bicep isn't flexed, but when it's upward it is. Keeping not of that detail is anatomically accurate, but no one really cares. Another example is how windows have reflections, but they are rarely drawn in.

People don't consciously see this kind of detail but it adds to a subconscious perception of quality. This doesn't even have to do with realism, what gives character to your art is a all the little things you like about what you're representing or you think are important enough to include.

When it comes to these "peak" type things, the amount of change you see is very dependent on the person in question. People with really long muscle bellies don't exhibit such pronounced changes.

I wouldn't focus on that because it's too negligible. It's better to focus on say, the appropriate placement of scapula when the arm is rotated in a particular way, and how that affects the rest of the back.

Just my 2c.
