>imma use FREE SOFTWARE
Sorry /ic/, I was wrong.
This shit is so buggy, it's unusable.
I heard it works better on linux, though.
Maybe one day I'll make the jump to linux. But until that day, photoshop.

Can we start a "delusional artist tales" thread? Kind of like /fit/'s "fat people stories" threads.

"Hey this is student wants to learn photoshop. He seems really interested at your skills."

"My sister draws anime a lot. So drawing is in my blood."
"Oh that's cool. Here I'm going to give you a basic exercise. You need to make this circle appear 3d by shading it in. Just black and white its pretty simple."

>come back 10 minutes later, literally googling images of half naked anime chicks
"How's the sphere doing?"
"Oh it's too hard besides no one in Japan draws like this."
"Oh, is that so... lemme see how far you've gone."

Alternative Art/Stylization General

"To any man who has slaved to acquire skill in his art, it is most irritating to have his ability referred to as a gift. Perhaps there is one genius in a hundred years or more who can achieve perfection by divine inspiration. I have never met such a man, and I do not know any successful artist who did not get there by the sweat of his brow."

A general message to aspiring artists: "Lack of knowledge can be greater torture than the effort of acquiring it. When all is said and done, nature is your best instructor."
Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings. Most importantly, have fun.
This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make stylized work in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.
