hiring a painter
5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: sample painting.jpg]
I'm looking for someone to paint a rendition French neo-classical painter Merry-Joseph Blondel's 1828 portrait "Lycurgue, législateur de Sparte" ("Lycurgus, legislator of Sparta") on the bottom of a queen-sized Murphy bed. The guy who painted the picture accompanying this post is willing to work for food. Should I consider hiring him? What would an established artist charge?
When I asked our mutual friend if there were higher-resolution, better-focused photos:
>Nope. His documenting skills suck. But he uses multilayer techniques and acryllic, hard to explain if you haven't painted, but he's good. Went to art school and everything.
I know going to art school doesn't automatically make one a good painter, but this is the info I currently have and he's certainly better than me. What do you folks think?

Try to keep calm, have a positive attitude and avoid making Kind Janitor-san angry!
A general message to aspiring artists: Don't ever think that you should stop attempting to learn how to draw because "it takes too long" or "drawing is just a hobby." Being shitty at your hobby is definitely not better than doing your hobby well, no matter what your laziness tells you. Have some dedication in what you love to do, damn it!
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. Or you could muscle through it and end up like Genzoman or worse, your choice. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Keep calm, take it easy and remember the words of our good friend Glen Vilppu: “No rules, just tools.”

>originally studied at an art college 2 years ago but it turns out that making art a demanding/career orientated thing drained my motivation and drive completely
>start college 3 weeks ago studying English in order to pursue my other passion
>accidentally wander into the media studies/art section of the college, art students wandering around all over the place clutching their sketchpads
>"my peoples, I belong with you.jpeg ;__;"
>start spending my lunchtimes every day filling up an A4 sheet with elaborate, stylised sketches, think it'd be funny to go and pin one up every day in the art section of the college, sign every one off with my initials "E.C"
>fast forward to today, turns out the head of the art department has been collecting them and he and some students have been searching for the "artist" that keeps sticking them up
>mfw they are apparently looking for an Edward instead of an Emily
So, how many of you have had to give up art as a potential career or main hobby because of extenuating circumstances and had to resign yourself to a life in a different sector? How are you handling it? Do you get pangs of pain when you see art students milling about?
The first time I went to college, I was expecting to be surrounded by people who were just like me, I was so fucking excited. Instead I got a class full of chavtards who were only there because a grade in art = easy class where you get to doodle all day and then get a certificate for it at the end of the year. I feel foolish for expecting any thing better, but I was legitimately expecting to learn so much more. My tutor was amazingly talents but he'd taught these kind of people for many years now and it was obvious that they had burnt him out. Apparently I was a breath of fresh air for him.
I want to go to that head of the art department and say "It's me! Appreciate me please! Give me validation!" but I know that it will only distract me from my current studies, but oh god it hurts guys. It hurts bad.

Soooooo hey /ic/,
Let s say I got some bucks on paypal and really need a first design for a tattoo, but no one on 4chan seems interested in drawing one. I know it s against the rules to request something here, but you guys seem the only ones able to do that shit. I will only give details if someone is interested, I m not going to be annoying about this, if mods feel like deleting the thread, I understand it.
tl;dr earn some bucks for drawing me a first draft for a tattoo.

I know this is probably really stupid, but does anyone get any anxiety when drawing from references, or doing style studies of people you admire? I obviously want to learn from them, so I can draw the poses, faces and stylistic techniques from memory to better my art, but I have this fear that when I (eventually) draw my own stuff, it may look too similar, and people may accuse me of plagiarism and/or tracing.
This fear has caused me to stall in my Art for sometime, because I'm so scared that it can happen. Does anybody else get this (weird?) fear?
