Just started, decided to follow picrel and begin observational drawing. /ic/ is unfortunately a toxic shithole and 4chan's soykaf engine makes sharing a collection hard.

I only know r/learnart. DrawABox has critique for *their* lessons but having looked at the curriculum I'm not terribly impressed, but I would absolutely do a patreon or fbi server to get regularly critiqued.

Not sure where to post this, thought I'd post it here since I'm a long time lurker.

Well done, comrade

hello /draw/ comrades, recently i broke my laptop screen which has touch screen, i've been drawing on that but now it has a slight crack and the touch wont register (???), the joint is also broken so now it's a hassle to use it properly. replacing the screen costs as much as a pen display with better gamut, pen sensitivity, buttons etc etc, but one thing that is bothering me is that they never list the frame rate, i am afraid it will have some stupid low frame rate like 24 or something. so, /draw/ comrades, do you guys have any idea on pen displays' frame rates? is it a good idea to use it as a primary display?


wdym ? u googled the pen displays specsheet and it didnt say anything about framerate?


It should have a normal 60hz refresh rate.


Yes, literally none.
I will take your words on this, cheers pal.

Requesting someone with a good eye for layouts to give feedback on improving this template:

It will be used to make slides for a slideshow-montage video listing neo-fascist groups and their known sex offenders. It's a long list so I need to make a template. Each slide will be on for about 3 seconds, so where the eyes go to is important.

Read that linked post before replying.

It would be nice if we could make a guide to designing and deploying agitprop.

Questions for non-art anons:
>What would you like to know how to make that you currently don't
>What kind of agitprop seems like it would be fun to do?

We could cover designing and dissemination techniques, the usefulness of different formats, and considerations on what to propagate (how to apply the mass line to propaganda)

Here are my thoughts as a hobby digital designer:
We should create a series of templates compatible with free and open source software. Free vector resources. Tutorials. Reviews of printing equipment etc. I am pretty good with Inkscape.

We should create a guide on how to use agitprop to support local campaigns, and how to message based on local conditions.

We should compose questions for well read users about how to apply marxism to our work.

I spent a good deal of time designing during the long hot summer, and I found that digital printing was actually quite cost prohibitive to the point that color fliers for rallies would eat several people's dues. Obviously this isnt a problem for super well funded orgs, but I wonder what can be done about this?


coexist in - Mao
given Zedong


make designs that economize on ink
get an ink tank printer or a laser printer
steal paper from work


Actual answer: order it at a commercial printing company. I can get 4000 color flyers for 20 euros, half a cent per flyer.

ITT: practice gestures

What's gesture drawing? It's practicing the particular skill of capturing the shapes and movements of a figure. It's a good way to get better at drawing a whole character in dynamic poses that have proper anatomy. It's also supposed to be quick and simple so you can practice a lot. You can also incorporate gesture drawing into composing larger or more complex pictures by drafting the positions and poses of the subjects with minimal commitment. If you want to get good at drawing, it's good to practice regularly with gesture drawing. Just sit down for a couple of minutes now and then and sketch a few poses.

Greetings comrades!

As you all know, the whole blockchain ecosystem received a massive boost when the idea of Non-Fungible Tokens was announced - a revolutionary new system to itemize digital art to create verifiable ownership through the blockchain, allowing for long-term immutable storage and sales of digital art.

We at /leftypol/ appreciate our artists and are offering a chance for our drawfriends to submit their own NFTs to be minted on a soon-to-be-launched /leftypol/ crypto known as Alunyacoins, allowing for the art to be purchased by verified /leftypol/ labor vouchers! From there, we are collaborating with the Yugoslav flagposters to create a /leftypol/ NFT market, from which all /leftypol/ NFTs will be sold by their authors with a 15% cut taken to be deposited towards the janitorial hot pocket fund.

Submit your art within the next 24 hours to have your art minted forever!

We need to mint that Harry Potter post that all the Twitter fags like. Finally we can start making a profit off our intellectual effort, as is only fair.
