All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper
Feel free to post any drawings of yours in this thread. Illustration, doodle, traditional, digital - anything goes. Discussion on skillbuilding techniques and fair critique of other wizards' work is welcome.
can the wizard who's been drawing chibis of digimon and sanrio characters draw something of Kuromi? she's my favorite.
actually anybody is free to but he seemed to be the one most interested.
I just saw the new thread as I posted the request. In case the wiz misses it>>61415
thread 7 was grey, thread 8 was red, thread 9 is blue
can 10 be green
A heads up
In Rutracker there a lot of premium courses, with a good amount of seeders, check the 2D section
By the way, Rutracker has good art coursed
might be a retarded question but you installed drivers correctly and tried out the stabilization and smoothing settings, right?
Are you using it in Mouse Mode or Pen Mode? Also disable all of Windows' tablet processes and then install Wacom's drivers and configuration tool.
Thanks for your tips. After reading your posts I found the manual on the wacom's website and did a proper install and configuration. Still takes a lot of practice, you guys use tablets? My brain hates the fact I'm not looking where my hand is. Like with everything, I'll need to get use to it, is all.
Yeah I had a bit of trouble getting the hang of my Bamboo Splash 10 years ago. I hadn't drawn anything prior since middle school and it was chaos. The old saying "I can't even draw a straight line" really applied. Eventually I got used to it. One of the benefits of these small tablets is being able to angle them relative to your elbow angle, so even in cramped work areas we can get a comfortable drawing position. A lot of digital artists are able to draw in bed because of their modularity.
I bought the device primarily to draw textures for 3D models from scratch, trying my hand at making realistic surfaces and baked-on lighting. It was a godsend for that because precision wasn't typically needed and Blender allows painting directly on to the model so everything was totally realtime. Since then I've gone to pencil and pen and couldn't get back in to the tablet so I spent the money for a pen display and that's been really great.
Your drawings are nice, please stick at them. It's normal to spend hours on one when new to a tablet. I've added 30+ hours to what was just a sketch when I begun, but was able to cut that time to a fraction after daily practice for a week or two.
Why did you go back to using physical media? Stuff like coloring is so much faster on the computer and it's a lot of easier to correct mistakes. It's the reason I got a tablet in the first place.
Anyway, here's many hours after the sketch, currently going through the coloring process.
looking good. Oddly specific but it reminds me of old succubi's clothing sewing pattern packaging.
I stopped drawing digitally because I simply lost the means to do so, in between moving and losing jobs and couchsurfing. Carrying a sketchbook is easier than lugging around a laptop and tablet. I learned a lot when going back to physical media, about things like neater linework and monotone shading.
I did experiment with coloured pencils but never got far at all, definitely better to learn digitally for those
Yeah, I'm using an 80s magazine fashion cover for reference.
Well, I wish you good luck with your drawings. I'll try to finish this and post the result later.
If you remove the lines in the character and simplify the face, the draw will look like corporative style
Yeah I was going for that generic old magazine ad style but I'm done with this one. I'm trying something new, we'll see.
How do you motivate yourself to start drawing when you're at such a noob level you know you're only going to produce shit?
I heard it's best to draw from imagination but I would rather sort of copy existing stuff to practice, is that viable?
I learnt some basics a few weeks ago (downloaded a course using a Skillshare trial - The Art & Science of Drawing) so I know to draw light lines and use shapes to create form and stuff, but I don't know where to go from there, it's kind of overwhelming.
copying is the best way to learn, eventually you will notice patterns and come up with your own stuff
I've been working on the lines and colors for this one for over 10 hours now. There's a lot to go yet with the hair, highlights and polishing. I'll continue tomorrow. I hope this gets decent.>>61502>don't know where to go from there
Find images you like and start copying, like >>61503
said. You don't need to copy a 100%, ad your own touch here and there to keep yourself entertained. Practice is the only way forward.
Where you get you references from? I really like going to safebooru, I always end up finding something in there that I want to copy.
I know you didn't ask for critique but check out the symmetry there, taking your time to measure everything during drafting will help you improve a lot.
How would u know the eye was off. Two it's anime what do expect
Looking good wiz, very ambitious. Please do experiment with keyframes. Draw say frame one, then frame 5, then frame 10, and move these frames around until the time between them and therefore the pace of the animation looks good. Then draw the frames in between. Like storyboarding. Also onionskinning will help to keep things consistent between frames.
practiced my greens this week.
close up grass, distant grass, more grass, some shrubs and brushes, trees with grass and hey, more grass. Tried various techniques, repeated some with different types of brushes like fan, hard bristle and round head.
Also tried to digitize his majesty, so far got a rough base but I dont think i can make the end result look good. Gotta find some good video tutorials for digital.>>61533
the base can be improved but the following steps are great and it turned into a good picture.
I have been drawing for like fifteen years and I have never made a single correct drawing, just piles and piles of dumb trash, and probably I'll get dementia at 34. My IQ is very low and I am barely functional. I think I may have retardation and/or a brain tumor.
I’m literally same as you ,10 year old kids draw better than me.I’m completely an useless retard and a genetic trash
Look up outsider art, art done by people with mental illnesses is quite valued.
wish I could brainwash myself like Chris Chan in to believing my drawings are good.
Thank you for your kindness but the picture looks pretty bad. Funny I thought the line drawing as alright but the colors ruined it.
Anyway, here's another one. Had high hopes for it, too, but it came out like shit. I think it's the colors again, I don't know. I'll have to try something else.
Woah, very nice wiz
Are you implying that his drawing are bad?
Another half given up thing and my 6th attempt at that one. Still so far away. I know acrylics are inferior to oils when it comes to brilliance but I do have to wonder how much I ruin mine. I do use pretty cheap ones I once purchased for my spice rack since I havent depleted them (they came in 50ml tubes and holy crap you can not downplay just how much space you can cover with such a small amount)so it stands to reason that superior quality stuff might, -might-, look better. Ordered some Schminke primacryl (cheaper than store but still pricey at 7ish € per 60ml). I want to do a full year of acryl before I try out oils but I'm def want to try them out.>>61574
is it just me or is her right eye bigger than the left?>>61580>but the picture looks pretty bad
It does not. It may not please you but you cant call it "pretty bad"
>shit>doesnt like the colours
i wish i was half as "shit" as that picture.>>61593>>61594
keep em coming
lynne has enjoyed a swim, wip, hope i finish this one. gonna redraw her arms they look odd. her hands aren't succubus-ish either!>>61580
looks good wiz. subject is nice background is nice. only problem is that they seem different styles. the succubus has sharp lines to define her shapes and the different layers of clothing. She is made of lines then coloured secondly. The background however has no lines and is just colour. that's fine but contrasted against a lined subject makes it look like a bash of two totally different pieces. just my two cents
Why sage? The thread was at the top of the page!!!
here's one i saw recently on another small board. i think it is the perfect response to anon's delirious diaper-shitting:>sage is always butthurt
What's a good program for drawing digital art?
Paint.NET is a great step up from MS Paint with layer support and basic effects. Good for oekaki.
Krita is a nice little package with power behind it. It's responsive and has a simple UI. It works well with pen input. Has straightforward animation tools akin to Macromedia Flash MX
GIMP is highly powerful and really customizable with a very conservative UI. Has good pen input support. Can be janky on modern systems, but has a nifty segmented canvas that allows for high DIP drawing on older hardware. Has a lot of photometric and compositing stuff that gets in the way of just drawing though
Sketchbook is very simple and highly responsive to input, especially the free mobile versions. Simulates dynamics of real brushes with speed and consistency. Comes free with many pen tablets and I think digital keys go for cheap
Clip Studio Paint is hand-tooled for digital illustration and animation. It's beefy and responsive and mimics Photoshop's UI well. Hard to pirate. I use CSP to draw boobies (2d) (succubus) and I haven't had any bad experiences.
Photoshop is rented out by Adobe who participate in satanic rituals.
Krita is pretty good and free, SAI is good too if you want to draw Anime/manga/cartoons, you can do great things with these just check youtube for inspo.
now, CSP or Photoshop is the most professional option, they're expensive so you'll have to crack them and it can be risky
Not bad wiz. Do you ever go over to /ic/ to brag to those losers how you managed to crack the 'anime" style?
Don't mention the name of that damned place here.
I don't mean to be mean but I mean come on man. It's clear you have a type of goal to strive for and you're clearly aiming for it with everything you've got, but please learn the fundamentals of the style you're reproducing, and how basic anatomy. pose, expression, and composition play in to the greater sum of the image. A scene like this would benefit artistically from some dynamic poses, character interaction, environmental effects, foreshortening, or pretty much anything else very much more than drawing the sex_parts would. Drawing little nipple circles before attempting fingers is just depraved
don't waste your breath man, /beg/s stay /beg/
Very pretty paintings
Okay well nobody mentioned Pokemon or Dragon Ball influence.>looks like every cartoon ever
Looks like horny TRASH
You can post 3 at a time man slow down
I think you would like to draw some characters from the Claymore anime.
These are my drawings. I have not shared them with anyone else until now. My scanner doesn't get the whole drawing most of them have little pieces cut off/it's not the full drawing. Hope y'all enjoy themhttps://files.catbox.moe/c2a724.rar
You have posted Donald Duck here before. also cool F-Zero pilots
Thank you I love F-Zero. I will post again when I have more drawings. If I posted any of these before I've forgot
Made a TIE Interceptor on the side out of a newspaper and some glue. Took significantly longer than anticipated, wasted way too much time for this "interior" with a pilot, his seat, 4 monitors and the main terminal - all wich cant be seen…>>61853
that shadow in #6. #37 is oddly charming
Milestone: Painting #100 and ~350-400 hours in. When do the happy hormones come?
Atleast now there is no more doubt that this too is not something I am gifted/talented at. Eh but too early to give up yet, maybe I'll achieve mediocrcy. >>62022
for how long have you been drawing already?
thanks so much bro. she's simply the best bro and that's all there is to it.
>>62042> can still only copy from reference.
Nothing wrong with reference. This thread and the last there were a few posters who said that even professionals still use reference alot. I do believe you can make do without but then again: Why? Its not like we're in school anymore or its illegal to use references to help make the stuff you want to do
Those who learn only from reference will forever be dependent on reference. It doesn't matter how good you are, how long you've been drawing, how advanced of an illustration you'd like to make.. You NEED to regularly draw from imagination with no references. This is the only way to improve your visualization to paper pipeline.
If you wish to be able to satisfy your desire to create with nothing more than a pencil and an idea, start laying down random lines and picturing what lines need to come next to fulfill your vision. Only after diligence of this discipline will you be capable of drawing oppai loli on the bathroom stall walls with your own blood. No smartphone, no pose book. Just you, the blood, the wall, and the guy in the next stall over.
i saved this and i like it more every time i see it. i really thank you again for this. feels special a wizard drew for me.
I like these and think you're on the right track. Keep at it.
thanks very much, im glad you enjoy kuromi too. this is the rarest kuromi pic i have, maybe you'd appreciate its rarity. it's from an obscure custom debit card design shop.
if you want another chibi recommendation, there's also King from the owl house. (the creator of the show is very mean to him and looks like he's going to die next ep. everyone is mean to chibis)
is this just a hobby or what? are you able to provide for yourself making art? i feel like you could
depending on how fast you are, you could try fiverr asa middleman for handling business for you. every morning just knock out the requests. if it ever gets tiring just raise your pricehttps://www.fiverr.com/search/gigs?query=portrait%20art
i like your style better than the crap i see here
couldnt get them to shine>>62163>>62173
I really like #63
A shame you stopped, but do share your most expensive commission with us.
made a pinkish tree. Repainted some old ones.>>62231
Do you share your stuff exclusively here?
I like the composition of that first tree at night. Plein air kayaking is pretty sweet too.
>Do you share your stuff exclusively here?
Nah I post it around.
Dose anyone else get bummed at how far AI generated art is coming along?
somewhat. but automation is ultimately good. imagine how much anime or manga could be produced if all you have to provide is rough sketches or even a screenplay and it generates the visuals for you
we've had tons of dumb advancements in tech. this will be a smart one. dumb as in, for example, like we used to have to do stop motion animation for monsters in films, now we use 3d effects, but the effects aren't smart, humans still must manually control everything. a smart equivalent would be roughly telling the program where to add in dinosaurs and correcting it as needed and letting it figure it out on its own
Yes; soon enough man will be no more than any other animal. Disturbing.
