Welcome to /art/, the board for us starving artist types.
This board is here for critique, advice, inspiration discussion and collection of any and every kind of art imaginable.
The fun thing about art is that it can be any and everything, as long as you can give a reason why it is.

Few rules though:
1. Don't be a jackass during a critique. Art is absolutely subjective and there is a major difference between constructive criticism and insults. You are free to express you opinions about a piece, installation or construction, but don't be a prick. Doing so will result in a ban.

2. No porn. There is a clear difference between nudity/eroticism/anything extreme and just flat out porn. Use your judgment.

and... yea, otherwise, standard board rules.

Don't be afraid to ask for advice or inspiration, and if the general consensus is for it, maybe we can try to have weekly sketchbook critiques or art projects.

Tried my hand at charcoal again, it's pretty fun but so incredibly flimsy and messy! Quick doodle while drinking a cup of coffee.

Good to know! Thank you very much.

No, I think I've touched a little bit on the subject of my general health/mental health and what not, point being it's not optimal, hehe. I only sleep every other day, sometimes not being able to sleep for three, four days.

I want to, however, but if I were to begin a 5 year course right now I'd most likely quit a month in.

I've been a bit more motivated to draw and paint recently, done quite a bit of soul searching or whatever you want to call it.

because I enjoy people. I really do. I enjoy being creative with them.
yeah, I've felt above people before, but not in a way that has held any real ground.
just me being insecure. "oh look, I bet he doesn't get paid as much as I do and he's older"
seriously, what a childish way of thinking

If you do put it on a jacket, back or breast would be best. Do consider that most signs like this might be read as a swastika by some, so absolutely no shoulder or upper arm patches.

I have some ideas that I think would be best expressed with oil painting. I have a bit of experience with acrylics, but mostly in a haphazard way: abstract background stuff for my collage pieces and so on. I'm pretty weak with regard to colour theory, basic painting techniques, and so on. I'm planning to take a class, but due to some money issues that will have to wait until January.

Does anyone know any good tutorials or resources for working with oils? Also any tips or tricks you may have, especially when it comes to painting flesh and hair would be greatly appreciated. Basic tips or techniques are welcome as well.

Re: hair - the best advice I can give is to think of it in 3 dimensional chunks, rather than separate strands of hair (which, frankly, is pretty much impossible to achieve and would look weird.)and what helped me the most was/is looking at sculptures and how hair is formed out of marble.

That is much better and more complete, as the process the flowchart describes is an ongoing cycle of reflective thought and self-evaluation, and not a linear process with an end.

I only made one change because I don't have image editing software and just copy/flipped the bottom-left downward arrow. But yeah, you could put a [x amount of time later] arrow from "Keep doing" to "Are you".

Hey I'm posting again. I should really be more of a regular here. Sorry about the long delay. Been very busy recently.


My God I just looked him up and I'm nowhere near that good, I'm afraid! Flattered that you thought me capable of it.

I almost feel like OP needs to turn this into a game where he intentionally hides ying yangs in complex drawings in order to see how many we can tally.
