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?

How do I draw hair? I get the whole volume and clumps thing but something about it just doesn't click in my brain when I try putting it on paper.
>>1654 It's mostly 1bit black&white, with gray and red as limited other colors mostly used for UI elements. If it's the same as SoL then the other colors also respect the limited palette and are max saturation max brightness. I don't think that it's real 4bit RGBI/CGA-style since SoL is unity and WoL is either unity or flash but they don't break their own rules from what I remember. I fucking love 1bit BW, even dithering is better than gradient pissbaby bullshit >>1673 Draw (drawn) hair that you think looks good from reference.
>>1654 >>1674 I never knew Kingdom of Loathing got any sequels.
Is it wrong to use someone else's artwork for practicing figure drawing? It seems that you wouldn't get the same level of detail as a real human figure but a lot of times drawn poses are more intense than what can be done during a real photo shoot.

Decided to be finished with this one, what I should've done was rubbed the paper with graphite before I started to have a nice texture/shading basis, trying to do it by hand with a pencil is not as easy and doesn't look as good. >>1639 The first time was also done with charcoal instead of a pencil so that's why it's a lot darker.

>>1637 looks like sick animation
Full page of blooks, I think the problem with most of them is that I was trying to add too much detail so they ended up in a sort of uncanny valley where they were neither cartoonish nor realistic. The ones on the far right side of the page are simpler than the others, and I think they look a bit better because of it.
I keep alternating between trying to draw real faces and cartoonish ones. How do I know when it's good to move on to the next parts of the book? Working from Fun with a Pencil.

Thread for sharing references of all kinds. Models, clothing, body parts, landscapes, animals, plants, spaceships, cars, boats, and everything in-between. To start off I have a large collection of models from Croquis Cafe. Zip password is DontStopPracticing. https://www.mediafire.com/file/q4ywebl614883x5/Croquis_Cafe_Models.zip/file Also including a large collection of various other references. Most of these came from various stickies and other shares, but I am uploading them again for redundancy. https://www.mediafire.com/file/4onusjzbsp1njdp/References.zip/file If you have something you want to share or preserve, share it here.

What's a drawing tablet I can get that has a huge work area, won't die in a year, and won't rape my wallet? I have a Huion Giano that I'm about to give up on because of how easily it breaks.
>>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.

MS Paint & Animation Artist 07/14/2022 (Thu) 17:36:02 No.1500 [Reply]
What is a good animation software that is similar to Microsoft Paint? I'm so used to drawing in MS Paint and none of any other pixel animation software I've found has features MS Paint has, like right-clicking in the middle of drawing to cancel that stroke being drawn.
>>1500 Mmh, don't know if it helps but have you tried Paint.NET? Otherwise I think I remember someone mentioning Aseprite as a good tool for sprite animatins.

Drawpile (https://drawpile.net/) is a collaborative drawing and visual shitposting software. Every Sunday at 10pm EST good /loomis/ boys and girls of all skill levels from across the internet come together for a one-of-a-kind artistic experience. Note: Edited out by request of host.

>>1384 So you are saying I'd have to get up at 5 am on monday just to get the name of this new secret clubhouse?
>>1423 Anything you do don't join it they have a policy of catering to retarded 4chaners and porn artists. Remember they don't care about us or this board and want to take it all for themselves.
>>1423 I think the link is stickied the whole time and also part of the canvas. If you're interested just join, get the url, and check it out. But using the Drawpile as a filtering mechanism might change though.
Drawpile host here. Please remove my server's address from this board. I no longer wish to associate with this place. Thank you.
>>1436 Sad to see that but very well, it is done.
