It seems like we reached the bumplock on our previous draw thread >>13 a while ago and no one noticed. So I guess it's time for a new one!

What is the acceptable "break" time? I sometimes find myself not feeling like drawing at all for one or two days even, despite being a total novice and wanting to be good. Is it normal or am I just a lazy nigger?

How do we get more people posting in here?

What do we do? do we advertise in other boards?

I'm thinking in making OC for each board, like some military and political themed drawings for /pol/ and maybe /k/, vidya fanart for /v/ and /ggrevolt/, memetic stuff for /bmw/and OC in general, maybe that'll boost traffic here and represent 8chan more (we truly need quality OC in this site in general)

I feel like his use of shadow in his architectural paints really adds a feeling of temporal movement. Although, I do kind of see what you're saying, but I feel like that could have been ironed out as he matured. He seems almost afraid of being too creative.


For one, can you guys clean up the 404'd threads?



This, maybe?

Is the BO active? This thead is from 2015 with only a few posts afterwards. I know 8ch as a whole doesn't have much traffic, so that might mean the board's completely dead.

Thats not art, thats just shit

File: 1454050188398.jpg (45.02 KB, 625x640, 125:128, ic do it.jpg)


Hey guys, I'm a beginner artist here. This might be a dumb question but I'm just wondering if this is a nice place to discuss/properly critique art.

I've had enough of /ic/ and their elitist attitude where they shit on beginner artists because they're beginners and can't draw very well. It's just really discouraging and makes me not want to draw. The board is honestly 80% dickbags who have their heads stuck up their elitist asses.

At the same time, I don't want to go to reddit, as it's too hugboxxy. They would probably think my garbage beginner art is amazing.

Anyway, I lurked a bit here and it seems like a decent place.

Funny, I left /ic/ because it seems to 100% consist of shitty beginners and tripfags.

Keep in mind that I'm an absolute beginner and have probably been drawing for less time than you; I do have, however, a piece of advice I think would help you.

I think I'm starting to actually get symbol drawing now, and it's not always as straightforward as it seems. I'd say you are symbol drawing because if you thought of the forms properly, you would never have come up with some of these lines. The breasts, the crotch, the knees, the face; all these have indications of you symbol drawing because of some of the lines that simply wouldn't exist if the forms were correctly put together. Think about your lines, learn about light, one great way of doing this is drawing from life, and that's what I recommend you to do.

I know the redline isn't perfect, again, not only have I been doing this for what, a month now? But I also don't have my tablet in front of me, but it's just something to think about; think about the lines I removed, would there really be hard edges where you put them? Lines and outlines is something I've always been very interested in, and I honestly think they should be used VERY carefully as they really do not exist in life.

Also, I don't think /ic/ is that bad of a place, and yes, I've gotten the "symbol" treatment from them before. It's important not to think everyone's out to troll you. If someone critiques your work in some way, you may or may not understand why they said a certain something, but keep it in mind, especially if many people say the same thing; you may even try to defend your drawing, have some good old back and forth shitposting, but that's cool, don't sweat it. After that, draw more, submit more drawings for critique, and (hopefully) there will be that one time when it clicks right in, and you'll know exactly what they're talking about.

Also, drop the animu, it's the quickest path to not making it.



Wait, does /ic/ even have any good artists?

I've lurked there 3 years ago, but dropped 4chan like a hot potato and last I've checked there wasn't really anything that impressed me, aside from the standard "ship destroyer girl" improvement meme.



there were some, but they all left and are not coming back.

If the pic related is your art, than i know you. you have been spamming your art on 4chan everyday and you insult other people's art telling them to kill themselver.

Well let me tell you something, your art is not only boring but also sucks ass.

stop larping and go back to 4chan where you belong.

Thank you.

Because you treat her like shes a goddess. just like most of men do.

Women get bored with males like you.

You must treat women like theyre animals, be an alpha male. only then they will start to respect you as a male and they will be all about you.
