post any paintings/drawings/photos that really grab your attention. doesn't matter whether they're good quality vs bad quality, the emotional response is all that matters.
Alright, I'll bite.
Coincidences are a funny thing, aren't they?
Steve Ditko (most famous for being the first artist on Spider-man) made some pretty great art. He died recently as a shutin and was definitely a robot.
Reminds me of when I was a kid and I had a really nice cowboy figure that I got from my dad right before he was JUST'd by my mother. It was less like a figure and more like a small statue, and it sat right next to my alarm clock. I broke it like an idiot when I was 15 or so, it fell from my nightstand and broke the horse's leg off of the stand. I wish I knew where it was, I think my mother may have sold it or thrown it away along with my other childhood belongings.
Learn about real art, degenerate
Architecture's good too. Wikipedia has a lot of nice photos for random cities

It's peculiar how those kind of little things can bring up memories, but the memories are always bad or bitter-sweet. Sucks about your father, women are a cold breed of beast.
You have such an outdated view about art, anon. Real art is literally everything, because nobody can define what art is, or what good is, or what talent is. Those pretty scribbles are just as equal to Chaim Goldberg's art, if not less equal because they're so old-fashioned and backwards.
You lost me at
>Real art is literally everything
I suppose it would fall under the definition of art, but at least for me, good art is a balance of skill and meaning. Earlier art is focused on skill rather than meaning, art today is focused on meaning rather than skill. And of course in both times there is good and bad art.
James Marsh. He made all the art for Talk Talk's albums
Where does the second one comes from?
I can't remember exactly but if memory serves it's from one of his earlier comics, "Mr. A". Mr. A is the only one of his characters that he retained all the rights to for his whole life, he wasn't paid shit for either the Spider-man or Doctor Strange movies. I doubt he would have wanted to be bothered by such things anyways.

Oh well, was a fun thread while it lasted.
>Real art is literally everything, because nobody can define what art is, or what good is, or what talent is.
Please stop. It's fine to have different tastes in art and there's plenty of ways someone can enjoy something, but the "anything and everything is art" mindset got us our modern art school garbage and shit like Interior Semiotics. Sometimes the boundaries aren't clear but they do exist, otherwise there's no point in even having a term for it in the first place.
I really like the aesthetic of certain vidya.
I really adore drawings of Polish artist Yerka. I don't know why.
Figured I'd share this story from a few years ago:
>16 or 17 years old, not sure what I want to do after HS
>apparently my art teacher thinks I'm the shit, tells my mother I should go to art college
>there's a free lecture at a good art university in my state
>it's about how to make a portfolio
>figure it can't hurt to go
>at the lecture
>old half asian man gets behind the podium
>talks for a while about diversity in your subject matter
>then he talks about individual mediums and the types of things you'd have in them
<"so for [medium x] you'd really want to diversify your portfolio and bring unique artwork to the table"
<"look at [artwork x] *shows a shitty peice of modern """""art"""""* and really pay attention to the details"
<*shows a similar artwork* "now look how they expanded on that idea, really kind of having fun with it and questioning what it really means to [medium x]"
and he repeated this for every medium, things like painting, photography, and pencil sketching. The worst part was the piece he showed for paintings, it was a series of works in which the "artist" just dropped a bucket of paint onto par of women's shoes and stuck it on a canvas. Not even in a visually interesting way like a Pollock painting, it was just a solid color over the entire piece. And of course he was "really kind of having fun with it and questioning what it really means to paint." Art is such a joke these days. I'm not one to act like I'm more skilled than them, but a college-level artist should be held to a higher standard. Funnily enough the most information I got was after the lecture when I talked with a professor who was there about how art college in general worked and he simply gave me all the information I needed to know that college is shit and worthless, especially in the area of art, even disregarding all the roastie whores and faggots.
Here to post some of my stuff, I shared some in the art thread in early February but some is new.
I drew this a few months ago, was one of my first (and so far last) times really using ink. I like the how the beard/hair looks and I think the mouth and chin looks good but besides that I think it’s not very good. I tried to do some shading but it’s just bad black shapes on his face.
A pic of Johnny Joestar I started a in September and have only gotten back to once. Don’t really have motivation to do anything anymore
Lesson in a drawing book a bought. Was supposed to copy this Matise sketch, I don’t much like his simplistic sketching style but I liked this one
Hand drawings I did from same lesson book. Top in pencil bottom in ink
Arno Breker statute I tried to draw back in spring, didn’t like how it was going so I quit.
Last three that are less shitty enough to share
Just animu eyes and shitty drawing of All Might from the Nomu fight scene
Copy of a sketch by someone at an early Nazi party meeting in the 20’s plus a stahlhelm and Pickelhaub beside
>third drawing of Venom snake I dropped because I kept making it worse and worse.
These are really good, anon, the shading in these is great I almost never shade my shit. I hope you get more motivation to complete them, I always get more motivated in the fall and winter which is the opposite of most, I think.
>These are really good, anon,
Thanks, honestly I think the venom snake drawing was good but all I can see are the little mistakes and I’m scared to try to go back lest I ruin it more. I did the nose on the Breker statue one night and the general outline but when I went back to the mouth I ruined it.
>the shading in these is great I almost never shade my shit.
I think the only thing I’m decent at is shading, I can’t do decent perspective at all and my proportions are always awful.
>I hope you get more motivation to complete them, I always get more motivated in the fall and winter which is the opposite of most, I think.
I did the snake sketch back in the first months of this year when I was working at a camp full time and since there was nothing to do at the camp, and it was -40° celcius outside. I don’t watch TV so it was either draw or browse on my phone so for 4 days every night I spent about 3 or more hours on that drawing. Then from that in spring when I quit I bought some learning books and followed through but now that I’m in uni I have no motivation to do anything and I don’t draw anymore because I don’t do my homework or study and that comes first. Next semester I’m taking a single art class so I hope I can get my sit together before then and get back into it a bit
I’d like to see some of your stuff if you don’t mind sharing.

>tfw you will never beat the nazi drums with your comrade
I remember you and that thread, what a shitfest.
Thanks for showing me this.
>real art is literally anything
Anyone can scribble, do watercolor or make a CalArts face, it's a hollow doodle with less soul than brutalism. All of the pics you posted were shit because they had no emotion and discipline put into it. For example, if you want to express something you use words but if you don't have the proper words your point will not get across correctly, and if words didn't exist than the whole range of emotional and intellectual articulation would cease and we would go back to wide simple instincts, there has to be a bar set.
What do you mean it was a shitfest?
>sage discussing art in the art thread
You are all right that not anything can be considered art, but it’s quite obvious he was being sarcastic.
>Those pretty scribbles are just as equal to Chaim Goldberg's art, if not less equal because they're so old-fashioned and backwards.
Really should have given it away.
I saged because I didn't share any art.
>it's quite obvious he was being sarcastic
Then you've never met someone who majored in art. Never underestimate the ability of art people to be completely serious when everyone else thinks they're being sarcastic.
>I saged because I didn't share any art.
I figure the thread will be dead in two weeks so might as well bump with anything non topic. But that’s not a big deal
>Then you've never met someone who majored in art. Never underestimate the ability of art people to be completely serious when everyone else thinks they're being sarcastic.
Basically the only person I’ve talked to in uni this year was an art major. I could tell he was trying to be smug when I said I preferred traditional art and he asked what traditional art is. He never argued with me but since he does preformace art I know he was probably bothered. But as for this anon, since he called modern artists Jews I think it’s pretty fair to say he was being sarcastic.
Oh, I understand where you're coming from now.
You He was only pretending.
That wasn’t me m8, it seems he was a (1) and done, so maybe he was just shitposting, and I’m an idiot for defending him.
>I’d like to see some of your stuff if you don’t mind sharing.
Ask and you shall receive. Sorry it's mostly on notebook paper, I prefer to leave my good paper to better drawings that I never finish, so I figured I'd share a few that I did end up finishing more or less otherwise known as getting to the point that adding to it would only make it worse.
>Next semester I’m taking a single art class so I hope I can get my sit together before then and get back into it a bit
Sounds like fun, anon. From what you've shown here you'll probably do well in it, you just need to finish the pieces which will probably be the hard part.
I really like those, anon. I am unable to draw more “cartoony” that sounds like I’m saying I cannot not draw realistically but I’m not trying to say anything like “I’m so good I cannot draw simplified or exaggerated drawings.” That still sounds egotistical but I genuinely have issues not adding more detail to the detriment of the drawing. I think I’m still quite far away from being able to draw realistically and do so well.
>otherwise known as getting to the point that adding to it would only make it worse.
That’s what I’m trying to say. Thanks. Though the art book I’d been using (Keys to drawing) has been helping me quell the ‘tism and let it be more messy like the lion drawing here.
>Sounds like fun, anon. From what you've shown here you'll probably do well in it, you just need to finish the pieces which will probably be the hard part.
I just hope hey don’t make me do abstract or modern shit that I have 0 interest in. The most abstract form I can still appreciate is Impressionism.
How do you like to draw? Is it just spontaneous for you or do you like to set up the atmosphere first? I turn off all lights but my desk light and make some earl grey tea, then listen my playlist of either classical music, a good game soundtrack, or some lofi. Do you use reference or are you able to do memory/imagination drawings?
Dug this sketchbook up from under the piles of shit in my NEET castle. It actually has some stuff I'm pretty happy with. It's from a few months ago.
I remember suggesting you draw Cyberfrog in the art thread from a few months ago. I had forgotten all about that.
>How do you like to draw?
Back in HS I'd only draw during classes and never anywhere else. It's probably why I'm still in the habit of using notebook paper, something nostalgic about it. It's also probably the reason I got shit grades. These days I just draw while rewatching movies or when I get bored.
>Is it just spontaneous for you or do you like to set up the atmosphere first?
I like to draw whenever I get the urge to, but when I can I listen to music while I do it. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Ratatat.
>Do you use reference or are you able to do memory/imagination drawings?
It depends on what I'm drawing. With something like your average capeshit like Spider-man or Batman that I've been drawing since I was a kid I normally don't need reference, and I can draw decently when I'm doing something original, but when I draw something like a character I've never drawn before I normally have to sketch him out with a reference at least two or three times because otherwise I feel lost. Generic faces or hands aren't that much of a problem for me as they used to be though, the main problem for me now is getting the patience to finish them. I still do use reference when I feel like it though, like pics 1-3 here.
>The most abstract form I can still appreciate is Impressionism
Not sure you'll like it, but as painting goes, I quite like Frank Stella's abstract art. His stuff is very geometrical which pleases my 'tism. I saw one of his pieces in an art museum once and it was huge, like six or seven feet tall. Really neat stuff.
Hey you're the anon who got the yamaguchi spider-man, right? Those sketches look good my man
>I remember suggesting you draw Cyberfrog in the art thread from a few months ago. I had forgotten all about that.
That was you? Oh shit, that actually made me really happy when I read that, the anonymity here does make it feel a little lonely. Often I forget that there’s people on here I’ve interacted with before, and it’s not new people all the time. Especially after Eunch-anon the ISPs seemed to double and after the prominant autists left (coffee, vegan and dog autist) or quieted down it started to feel less comfy to me, because I couldn’t recognize posters anymore.
Anyways sorry again I didn’t do more, Van Sciver is a mad man, far too many little bits on him for me to have done.
>These days I just draw while rewatching movies or when I get bored.
I was going to draw tonight but I started playing EU4 and as always 6 hours later and I think it’s only been 1.
>Lately I've been listening to a lot of Ratatat.
I’ll check them out at some point.
>I normally don't need reference, and I can draw decently
That’s cool, I’ve never been able to draw from memory. When I was a kid I used to print out a picture of what I wanted to draw and then cut it out, and trace just the outline. It helped with proportions and helped me to get my general bearings, though I never really moved on from that before I quit drawing in early high school, so I really hadn’t ever got down proportions even for something I draw a lot. I have no school next week so when I get back home I’ll try to find some older drawings I did, there’s one bioshock and some Star Wars ones I don’t remember being awful. Though it’s possible I lost those textbooks when our basement flooded a few years back.
These are really cool. Do you use regular pencils or sketching pencils?
I like the first one and think it could look good in a house but it would have to be a modern furnished home. Though I’m not sure I would really pay money for it. Second one gets a meh out of eh from me. Third one is impressive and sastifying but I wouldn’t pay any money for it in an art sense.
A few of my favorite pieces
I kind of miss the guy. He was pretty entertaining and his autistic obsession with AI was pretty fascinating. I've seen him on a few other imageboards but he was best here.
>When I was a kid I used to print out a picture of what I wanted to draw and then cut it out, and trace just the outline
I used to do the same thing with comic books. I had some of those black and white "essential" series of collections of old Spider-man comics when I was a kid and whenever I wasn't playing vidya I would trace the panels or attempt to redraw them on my own.
>Do you use regular pencils or sketching pencils?
I have fancy pencils but I'm not good at using them properly. These are just normal mechanical pencils the two blue ones are just a normal blue pen, the red on the joker's mouth is a fancy marker though, it was a gift from my little brother since I can't afford nice art supplies. I did recently get some copic multiliners, which are the kind of inking pens that professional comic artists use. They're super thin and detailed, perfect for crosshatching and texturing and all that shit.
Posting some Francis Bacon art. Literal faggotry aside I think he was as close to a robot as a mentally ill failed normalfaggot can get. At least from the documentaries I've seen on him. Regardless I think his art is pretty nice in a weird way.
This is pretty much what I got, I got the box stuff for free since a family member works for them but I haven’t used any of it. I only use the Städtler pencils and occasionally the Sakura microns. The charcoal I got at the art store at my uni, but stopped drawing right after.
>I had some of those black and white "essential" series of collections of old Spider-man comics
I had a “how to draw Star Wars” book that I used when I was young but was too impatient to start with shapes like it said so I just got into tracing outlines and learning to fit everything inside nicely.
>I have fancy pencils but I'm not good at using them properly.
I love that städtler kit with the different hardnesses and darks. It makes shading a lot more fun for me.
>Posting some Francis Bacon art. Literal faggotry aside I think he was as close to a robot as a mentally ill failed normalfaggot can get. At least from the documentaries I've seen on him. Regardless I think his art is pretty nice in a weird way.
I don’t think you really could have been a robot back then. At least not by modern standards.
I did this today with the pens I mentioned here >>288201 , pretty happy with how it's turning out. Took me about a half hour of penciling and two hours of inking which I'd assume would be like an hour for a normal person but my ADHD doesn't let me stay on task. I plan on finishing the outlines tomorrow and shading it the day after that, and I might color some of the jewels so they don't just look like weird octagon-ey shapes. I got the inspiration from looking at pictures of Catholic jeweled skeletons, pics related.

Not art but OC, I don't know how to draw Bob Page's hair on a square.
does he know where the clutch is
Nice numerals. Should I post some wojacks I made a while ago? Is that art?
sage for not art
Sure but don't spam them, this is a thread for actual art but I really need help with drawing this head of hair.
Deus Ex bob page?
I really rough sketched it out for you (in fact now I don’t know why I did it but I guess maybe it’ll help you visualize the hair on a dolphin a bit?). I really need to be getting to bed but when I do hair in paint.net or ms paint I draw the base shape first then pick the main colour and fill it in then go through with 3-4 different shades (but still close to the original colour) and add in some detail and light/shadows. Once you have the base shape and your colours just look closely at what his hair style is from a reference and try to copy the light. Or you can go the long way and colour in the basic shape then go and add strands of hair in different close shades, which takes a long time but can look better.
Good luck anon.
I meant the square but it's been taken care of and thanks for the advice, enjoy this shitty joke.
Am ok, but want to contribute ;.;
>explanations in the filenames
Nice touch, anon. These are pretty nice.
How do you even die at work anymore? They treat everyone like babies and half the people think there aren’t enough safety measures. All the big companies I worked for had so many ridiculous measures in place that it was hard to do work with how safe they require you to be.
Because big companies can afford more safety equipment and do everything they can to avoid being sued. Freelancers and smaller companies on the other hand can't afford such liberties. Even if there's safety procedures in place, there's no guarantee that someone won't fuck up.
We had a rule where you had to report every single injury. Once I was replacing a toilet some fatass fell on and shattered, and I sliced my thumb on the porcelain (of the tank not the part shit goes near) and just wrapped it in tissue paper and went back to work. When my boss saw that he got mad at me for not reporting it. When we went over the reported safety incidents that month almost all were from the gooks that made up most of the work force and was shit like “slipped on ice and scraped my knee”, “poked my hand on a zip-tie”, dumb shut I wouldn’t even consider injuries. The safety procedures at that company were oppressing.
Saving this thread from Entartete Kunst.
Finished. The marker is covering my signature. It felt good to actually finish a drawing, I haven't actually gone from start to finish in much of anything for a while. I should see if I can get good at coloring stuff next. I've tried colored pencils and markers and I'm not good at either.
Sorry I didn't see this when you posted it, but yes and thanks. I broke the shoulder joint on it like a dumbass though, so now I have an armless Spider-man. It was only about twenty dollars though, so I'll probably get another one at some point.
I hate how sad and hopeless Ivan looks in that painting because it reminds me of myself. I hate being reminded of things I already know. These are all great paintings, though.

Don't really care much for non-realistic paintings but I like this one
This painting is the most accurate depiction of Schizophrenia I have seen. Other things that I have happened upon really don't even come close, but that's not to say that this is what it's 100% like. I've just never found anything that resonates with me more than this. Schizophrenia, or at least to me, in short, is best described as unmitigated distress. I could get more into it to describe why specifically this piece fits so well, but I honestly just don't want to be bothered with doing so.
I take it you’re schizophrenic then?
Now what in the world would go and give you that impression?
Do you experience bouts of insane rambling?
Not really. I can be pedantic, but I don't try to make a habit out of it. Far be it from me to needlessly belabor a point. I don't have people, so I don't speak. The most talking I ever do is saying aloud the things I type. To clarify, there is a difference between me in the bubble of reality that is my bedroom for literally months on end and the me having to deal with any sort of thing(s) outside my otherwise purview. Put me under enough stress and I will be visibly manically disturbed, but I tend to still maintain what I would mean if I were not having such a bad day. That said, I once sprinted through two doors after a guy who left the room only to come back into the room after clarity to see that he was, or would have been had I not done a crazy, standing to my side.
I feel like you should have asked a more specific question, because I do not feel as if I have answered your's sufficiently. In case you were actually wondering if I have issues with Mania, yes.
