I was surprised to discover by pure accident such a high quality painting of Stalin and the Politburo members during during field maneuvres, early Soviet art realism didn't have many high quality artists. I felt warmth in my chest when I recognised the name of the painter, Dmitry Kardovsky. I remember seeing his pre-Revolution works, he was 51 years old by the time of the October revolution and I didn't expect to see him painting for the Soviet regime, thinking he would resent the government that brought him poverty and stripped his primary clients of wealth. Maybe he indeed hated the USSR but was forced by circumstances to paint on revolutionary topics. Anyway, his skill is amazing and the only early Soviet artist of comparable level I know is Isaak Brodsky, here you can see his portrait of Mikhail Frunze, a Soviet hero and one of the Red commanders that fought in the Russian civil war.<br/><br/>In the 3rd picture you can see Olga Kardovskaya's (Kadrovsky's wife) portrait of an extremely popular Russian poetess, young Russian women especially adore her. I didn't read Akhmatova but I hate her for her sluttish personal life.<br/><br/>My last art commission in the 4th pic. Personally I am doing fine. Last two months let me earn some decent money (by Ukrainian standards), my parents didn't receive a penny from their work yet and I have been feeding my mom, my stepdad and myself for two months + buying gifts for grandma. Unfortunately people mostly commission me NSFW stuff or original characters whom I can't post on my Twitter, so my follower count is stagnating and followers are important if you want to increase supply of commissions and prices on your artworks. I have to decide between doing NSFW stuff that doesn't attract people to me or drawing stuff I need for the public for free. <br/>I hope my parents will start earning money soon because I need money for a laptop, the current one is 10 years old, plus I need to work on attracting people on Twitter.


Can any faggot here draw memes?


<a onclick="highlightReply('17651', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#17651">&gt;&gt;17651</a><br/>Artists don't always draw dumb shit, and those who do are probably already in the OC thread. Try requesting something and then someone might pick up your request.


I'm afraid to post my art online (even more terrified to do streams) because I'm not that good and I know that I'll be judged for my shitty skills.<br/><br/>The obvious solution is to draw without posting it, but over the years I've convinced myself that I <strong>must</strong> show it to the whole world to gain followers (of which I currently have around 10) to build an audience that could commission me and to feel satisfied with my own art. Because if it's not good enough to put online, I don't like it.<br/><br/>And since I'm not good enough to show people what I really feel like drawing at the moment, I don't draw at all, and my skill stagnates or worsens.<br/><br/>How the fuck do I get out of this vicious circle?


<a onclick="highlightReply('17666', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#17666">&gt;&gt;17666</a><br/>Draw muscular leftypol fucking /pol/face's mom in his room. His room should have anime pictures on the wall and a transhumanist dildo, it should also be very recognizable to be /pol/'s room. le /pol/face should have a thought bubble left to his head (from his position) saying something like "fuck you /transhumanistpol/ or something else. Doesn't matter, he should be mad. I recommend you just draw it and add le /pol/face into it and the leftypol logo onto /leftypol/'s upper body. His mom should be saying something like "you shouldn't be home yet" or something like that. She should be suprised. Anyways, as I said it should be very recognizable to be /pol/cels room where leftypol is fucking his mom.


<a onclick="highlightReply('17676', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#17676">&gt;&gt;17676</a><br/>Meh.<br/>Besides, I already did something kinda like that but not involving leftypol fucking polface's mom. <a onclick="highlightReply('14466', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#14466">&gt;&gt;14466</a><br/><span class="spoiler">I forgot to draw a trans NazBol flag in the background though.</span>

I have a question about comics as a newbie.<br/>Should I draw the panel separetly and then put them all together or should I work on the pages directly? Like I have draw some of the thumbnails and stuff, but I have no idea how it works in digital.

Look at what kind of stuff people commission me.

Plenty of people there make requests of their favorite characters and they are euphoric about anything you produce, even noobs. Also, I don't recommend to hope for followers unless you achieve admirable skills or you are friends with popular artists who can retweet you. At first it's better to focus in improvement.


<a onclick="highlightReply('17888', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#17888">&gt;&gt;17888</a><br/><span class="quote">&gt;Should I draw the panel separetly and then put them all together </span><br/>I'm trying to draw a short comic myself, but everywhere I look for info basically says that planning and laying out your comic's pages is the first step.<br/>You should lay out the page with the events you want to happen in that page in mind. And then, you should draw the content of the panels while thinking about the layout. Or you can draw the content of the panels while laying out the page. In any case, you don't draw your panels separately and then put them together.<br/>Here are some links about page layout:<br/><a href="https://www.clipstudio.net/how-to-draw/archives/160963" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.clipstudio.net/how-to-draw/archives/160963</a><br/><a href="https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/create-a-comic-how-to-plan-and-lay-out-your-comic--cms-24179" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/create-a-comic-how-to-plan-and-lay-out-your-comic--cms-24179</a><br/><a href="http://webcomicalliance.com/featured-news/composition-101-laying-out-your-comic-page/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://webcomicalliance.com/featured-news/composition-101-laying-out-your-comic-page/</a><br/><a href="https://www.makingcomics.com/2014/05/07/panel-layout-golden-ratio/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.makingcomics.com/2014/05/07/panel-layout-golden-ratio/</a><br/>This might also be useful:<br/><a onclick="highlightReply('15653', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#15653">&gt;&gt;15653</a><br/><br/><a onclick="highlightReply('17896', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#17896">&gt;&gt;17896</a><br/>Haha, good drawing though.<br/><span class="quote">&gt;You can visit OC threads on 4chan.

I was there a couple of months ago just to get familiar with those threads and the board, and they seem to be prone to Discord drama. But it sounds like a good idea nonetheless, as long as I don't get involved. I was also thinking of drawing very niche porn for a certain audience on another board (not just because I want commissions but because I like that stuff as well). I have a lot of ideas for that and some are halfway done, but my bad habits prevent me from actually working on them.<br/>Anyway, thank you for your reply and advice, <span class="spoiler">Kapchynskyi</span> ;_; <span class="spoiler">idk what else to call you lol</span>

Do I need a good computer if I wanna do digital drawing?


<a onclick="highlightReply('17920', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#17920">&gt;&gt;17920</a><br/>Depends on what you mean by "good computer".<br/>But my answer would be no, it doesn't matter if it's low-end, as long as it's somewhat fast and you have enough remaining drive space to store your art, it shouldn't be a problem. There are several relatively lightweight art programs. You don't need Photoshop, Illustrator or Clip Studio Paint, or even Krita to be good at digital art. What you might want to have is a drawing tablet, though (it makes digital drawing miles easier imo).

<a onclick="highlightReply('18095', event);" href="/hobby/res/2062.html#18095">&gt;&gt;18095</a><br/>Well, Wacom is good if you're looking for a beginner tablet. Their most basic ones are reasonably priced imo.<br/><br/>I used to have a Wacom Bamboo, after it broke (worked for about 4-5 years) I bought a small Wacom Intuos that I'm still using after about 3 years, and it still works great, no issues at all so far; it cost the equivalent of about 100 US dollars. I was actually recommended to buy a medium sized one to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome and to be more comfortable, but I forgot about that at the moment of purchasing; still, I've gotten used to it.<br/><br/>I've never been able to afford a tablet with a screen. I've heard that Huion display tablets are pretty good (IDK about other brands), and cheaper than the Wacom Cintiq, but I don't know which one lasts longer. I wouldn't worry too much about having 10000+ pen pressure sensitivity levels though, it's not important compared to everything else that goes into digital art or art in general. However, some people think that having a screen doesn't necessarily make a tablet easier or more comfortable to use. For example, Alt-Tabbing might be a pain in the ass.

Which is your favorite color wheel?<br/>What are the primary colors in digital art and traditional painting?<br/>I like CMY. You can't get fuchsia paint if you mix red and white, you can't get bright colors if you use red, blue and green ("primary" colors). Wish I knew that when I still painted.<br/><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByBsY-2U1kI" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByBsY-2U1kI</a>

Slowly I will save enough money to replace my 10yo laptop, buy a safe box where I could store valuables and start collecting rare coins and medals that I always wanted. My life never looked so bright before. I have had 3 commissions in the queue but unfortunately one of the 3 guys dropped out today, if I were faster I could get his money. It's extremely hard and tiresome to work with +30C temperature at home and with no air conditioner to cool you, though I am proud that I have more commissions than free time.
