This isn't the right thread for this, but it's hopefully the first thing everyone sees so everyone needs to go the /baw/, follow the link, and test something out. Especially if they can draw.

Don't know if/when Anonex or any of the other mods will make a official drawfag sticky. So I'll make this drawfag thread until they do.

These two things go here:
- /co/ drawfag art
- drawfag requests

Remember to check out the Archived /draw/ Board to see about past requests and art.

I haven't really posted on here before, but I'm curious to get feedback- what I'm doing wrong, what I should keep doing, suggestions on what I should draw next, etc.

Sure thing. Sorry for the whinging on the other thread. I'm just deliberating a lot of things artistically, worried because there's a lot of pressure on me right now. I'll cut it out.

Here's my drawing process:

-Mechanical pencil
-Rubber eraser
-Micron pens (005, 01, 02, 03, 05, 08)

-Look for pose/clothing refs
-Sketch rough outline
-Sketch less rough outline
-Ink lines

no it's ok. don't worry about it. i wasn't trying to say you were annoying or anything, it just sounded like you wanted some guidance.

i'm kind of curious how you're cleaning the lineart and colouring... but i think you might be using a multiply layer? if you rip the white out of the scanned image, it's much easier to clean/edit the lineart and colour underneath it. it's also really easy in photoshop and takes seconds. i thought maybe you were using gimp so i couldn't show you this, but you aren't!! i can. so that's what i'm going to do first

first tho you have to desaturate your image and then play with levels until you get nice black lines. if you're playing with levels right now you aren't playing hard enough!! (if you don't know what it is it's image > adjustments > levels, and i'm pretty sure you know, but just in case.) you can get rid of most of the grey on the image just by fucking with it a little, even if it's kind of a bad quality phone pic. get as close to black as you can without compromising your line quality. if there is still grey shit you don't want or errant sketch lines on your picture, they should be more visible after levelling, making them easier to erase. cleaning up is important. always clean up lineart.*

it kind of sucks to clean up inked lineart that you drew atop a graphite pencil drawing though, because no matter how lightly you press and how good your eraser is, there will always be bits that you miss or ghost lines that you thought you erased but came back to haunt you after you level. you can almost completely skip this aggravation by sketching with a pencil crayon (bright red is best but since you can just add a hue layer that makes it red anyway it doesn't matter what colour you use *that* much, as long as you can see it clearly while drawing ofc).

after that follow this: http://goo.gl/RIW8Gu i kind of wanted to link to something that isn't

My career on fine art or illustration is a blocked path so I want to jump into getting comissions online.

First of all: Can I make a living out of this? How?

What sells? As in realistic vs cartoony or fetishes vs furry.
How do I stabilish an online presence?
How much should I charge?
How do I avoid Paypal messing with my dead presidents?
Is furry the only safe way?

I'm reposting this thread from /ic/ because they have not answer my questions proper and because here there may be people with more experience in the field.

Okay so I tried something similar before on /co/ with terrible results. Now I'm gonna TRY and only post my quality crap here, or maybe post it all depending on what you all say.

When I was drawing this I tried to keep it closer to the style of tAWoG so I simplified most of the forms with cylinders because I wanted to draw Gumball and not a blue catboy.

Although if you meant the feet and hand that's probably because I haven't begun learning them yet.

So, I like using PhotoShop, but I am not happy with the ink lines that I get from it. If I use the paths tool and stroke it, the resulting line is always slightly soft and blurry around the edges. If I make a little area using paths and then fill, I get nice sharp edges to the line. However, this method is not very fast and isn't the best when I am trying to ink with consistent line widths.

In short, how do I make the "stroke path" method have the same sharpness of line as the "make path + fill" lines?

Related question, can I turn off anti-aliasing for everything ever in PS? (I think I'm using the right term, anti-aliasing). If I set a brush to 1px and draw a black line, it will make a line of grey pixels to represent the line I drew, but I WANT it to look pixely and solid.

I guess >>43792 will be the closest I will get to it in PS though.
>> No. 43910
when you stroke the path, it's using whatever settings you have for the tool you choose to stroke with. so if your brush is soft edged instead of hard, it will stroke with that softedge brush.
If you don't want antialiasing, use the pencil tool, not the brush tool.

I don't know how many people have delt with this but...

>sitting in a computer lab made for digital art at college
>drawing stuff
>people see "Oh hey thats great"
>Draw some stuff... people ask me to draw things, I draw them.
>people start naming off anime characters
>have no idea who any of them are
>guy sits at computer next to me
>scribbles out Moe-blob
>everyone starts asking him for stuff
>scribbles out half assed flat pictures of anime characters that the group fawns over

It wasn't even a good anime style, it looked like stuff you draw when you first start, where its paper doll ish and all in the same pose...
