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?

Krita General.

Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

MS Paint & Animation

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.

Incoming Directions

Hello there, it seems i'm the NBO and i would like to thank the previous BO for trusting me the board. While i haven't been an active user since a long time ago, i can still say i browse to check on things. Now it's obvious by now this place has been in disuse for some reason or another but i think there's still anons who don't really want to jump to the other site, so this thread is for them: If you have any suggestion, comment or observation you can do so with all liberties here, in my opinion i think we should probably discuss what we want for the board and how we should do to promote our mutual feedback and activities in or if users want it as a bunker for the other place, which can be understandable but that requires bunker status by the admins and a sort of "cold storage" status. But still, if there's a single anon who wants to use this place formally once in a while, apart from me of course, then that idea will be discarded; my point is just a quick friendly discussion on what's on your mind(s) for this board. From my part it seems i will have to pump my practice dramatically and post much more often

Need serious ideas, methods to always make art that has this much of traffic, clout. basically quantifying qualities to clouts, numbers, elements by elements, perhaps mathemathially. tldr, telling me the minimum of content i need to do to gain as much traffic from anatomy to construction to colors and helping me quantify my work before ibpost so i know i have put enough subjects

Hey brothers, I wanted to enlist /loomis/ to the Infinity Cup tournament (basically we used to have a soccer tournament online for various 8chan boards, ours is ) but before I did that I wanted to ask if anyone else would have liked watching the matches. We didn't have the best of showings last time, but the cytube stream was lots of fun for me.

Are there some Johnson-bob-nigger-jew-pajeet modelslashshematics to walk, gait, trot, motions of animations, in which one can follow, Dynamically, to create assortments of,physically correct motion cycles to perform since there s kind of, alot of complexity in realism and established animation, i thought that a complete guide would help just anyone to do good motions like milt kahl's llama/camel running scene or the tiger pouncing? Basically a schematic or guide to naturalistic looking motion to sort of, at least make the whole movie consistently realistic...

Ok, I hereby declare art war on (This is just an excuse to draw some characters and their equipement..) We'll need to draft an army, in order to psychologically destroy their board. We'll have four monthly themes, after which we should've assembled our army. (It's monthly, because I'm not sure how productive you guys are. It should be fun and not stressful.) During each month you can post your concepts and practice drawings related to the theme of the current month. The themes will be: - Armour - Weapons - War Face - Soldier The last month is when we explicitly create new soldiers for our army, using the knowledge we've acquired over the three prior months. (When I say "soldier" I mean anything that could potentially fight for the honor of In the end we'll make a compilation of all the created soldiers and display them as the army. From then on, we can continue the thread, if people are participating in it.

rotating an invisible camera

Hello, need help understanding how to draw an angle (or subject) from one perspective into another. given example below the photo, the angle between front tire and the body in that perspective, how to sort of redraw/project that image into another angle like the right one, worm/bird view? no plan drawing is to be expected so basically using another perspective drawing as reference only.... like rotating an invisible camera around the subject of sorts...

Robowaifu concept art

Question, can some of you artfags help us out with concept arts for /robowaifu/ designs? Having some new ideas and fresh points of view helps get motivation flowing and spurs creativity in general. It doesn't have to be anything fancy either, just basic hand-drawn sketches like >>>/robowaifu/369 are plenty good enough. Most of us who were part of our community weren't too skilled at art and we could deffo use the help.

Although the board is obviously small, I think it's imperative that there's some redundancy in the moderator department. So if you feel like overseeing things from time to time, pop your account name and tell me more on how you'd handle it.
