Let’s say a beg wanted to trace up an “oc” character from tracing alone. Would the end result be decent?


Make a pose on doll design or a picture and trace it. Find eyes, hair, cloths and accessories form multiple and different pictures. And trace them onto the pose trace... thus constructing a Frankenstein type monster of traced parts.

How good could it possibly turn out?

Can a complete noob bust out some decent stuff?

If you can't draw then tracing won't save you. I've seem people trace and still butcher a drawing. That said some artists do trace. Even some old masters traced with a camera obscura. Sometimes tracing is a handy tool.

Posting this again here since the last thread has been neglected.

So sometimes I take commission work on Upwork. I sent a proposal to a client asking for an artist for his children's book with a budget of $1500.

He eventually agrees to hire me, but hasn't told me anything about the book's story, or how the milestones will be broken down.

Most clients I've done story work for, they show me the script first before asking if I'd like to be on board. This guy just says "you're hired" without even telling me the book's story. Is this a red flag? Am I worrying too much about this?

Is it unreasonable to ask for the general idea of the project, like the book's plot, amount of pages, what each milestone consists of, etc before agreeing to take this project? Or should I just agree with what he asks and go with the flow? He brought up something about character designs, which I'm worried could be a whole different process in itself. I have no idea if he'll just want character design sketches, or full blown clean illustrations of character designs.

Thoughts? Ideas? Attached is the full convo.

Is there an easy way to edit perspective? I feel like I should be able to select an area day for example the windshield of this car, treat it like a rectangle,
follow the tip and bottom all the way out to the left, and then pivot those lines around so that they actually point toward the vanishing point correctly. It should stretch the whole picture around that adjustment. Choose a few lines across the drawing that should be pointing at a vanishing point but aren't and then pivot them around so they point to the same spot. Is there anything like that? Something like the cage select is close but my brain is telling me they're is a more intuitive way to do this that I'm just not aware of.

Deviantart seems to be dying off.

Pixiv is pretty good if you draw anime. Search results are sorted chronologically (unless you pay money), so if you're good your image will easily stand out amongst the multitude of shit that gets posted there. Only issue is you gotta translate your tags into Japanese, but that's not a huge deal cause of online dictionaries (plus Pixiv is constantly increasing support for other languages). Plus it's ok to post NSFW stuff there.

>> No.3905297

Yeah, it's fine if you don't know Japanese. All the UIs and stuff are in English so there's no problem there; it's just that it might hurt your visibility in the search engine a little if you use English tags. Over the past year or so they've made a huge effort to translate popular Japanese tags into English, but unfortunately it doesn't work for EN->JP.

You can type your tag in English in search bar, see what it's like in Japanese and copy it.

It's interesting how artists like Murakami, KAWS, Jeff Koons, Simone Legno, etc, are not just artists, but brand names.

Is that they key to being a successful artist? Having a style that is unique enough that it becomes a recognizable brand?

It's pretty neat to produce artwork that can be manufactured as vinyl toys, plushies, and fashion products.

Not too bad but pretty eh. You can afford to live in NYC/Tokyo on it. I don't remember what my old art teacher who was in the scene quoted me but that was back in the 80s/90s. They're well paid for what they're doing, probably as much as a mediocre graphic designer. It's craftwork so the pay isn't really all that impressive but is better than a lot of artists make on their own.

Don't know about autism, but the sense of aesthetic/beauty/harmony, good taste or whatever you want to call "it" is pretty much what separates a good artist and a bad artist, because you can't improve/train "it", only feed "it" more points of reference.

Accurate as in "simplifies and defines the muscle groups in an accurate way". It actually follows the same forms as the Loomis manikin in his figure drawing book, that's why it's recommended at the Watts Atelier.
Of course you ain't gonna find a 100% anatomically correct figure, you dummy.

Nice taste anon. First I think you should go through Loomis/Hampton/Vilppu- whatever you like most to get construction and anatomy if you haven't already, it's all in the artbook thread, "beginners essential" section. Then draw a lot, applying that knowledge. Be thorough when going through whatever book I mentionned but no need to keep your head in those forever- that'd be boring, wouldn't it?
Once you feel you grasp anatomy/construction a bit, try making finished pieces along with studies of that artist's work. Do studies to try replicate how he does armor, colors, textures, proportions, all that. Anatomical studies too- if you can't draw a hand, draw 100 hands on the side from real ref or photo to get a better idea of how to make hands.
Drawing from imagination is a nobrainer too.

Basically draw a lot with a healthy ton of studies of anatomy and the artist work's on the side :^)

I'd strongly suggest you give "Color and Light" by James Gurney a good read aswell before trying your hand at color studies.
