Resources for Drawfags:

- Riven Phoenix [Not free, but cheap.]
http://www.alienthink.com/figure-drawing/
He is not the best artist in the world, hell, he isn't good by a long shot. If you are a total beginner however, this is the absolute easiest way to get into drawing and breach the form over shape barrier. Just take each lesson, and draw along as he draws. Do at-least 1 video per day. Don't slack off, if you do, you won't see gains.

- Draw a Box [Free]
http://drawabox.com/
You're going to find, as a beginner, that you probably suck with perspective and form. Here is some more hand-holding, and it is totally free.

- Andrew Loomis [Free]
http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/Andrew%20Loomis%20-%20Drawing%20the%20Head%20and%20Hands.pdf
For those of you who actually want to be worth a damn as an artist, get the human form down, this is one of Loomis's books. They're all worth their weight, but you can usually find them free with a quick Google search.

- Richard Williams (The Animator's Survival Guide)
https://gamemakerstuff.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/ebook-the-animators-survival-kit-by-richard-williams/
It wouldn't be a resource list without this staple. If you plan on animating, or even being an effective visual artist, give this at least one read.

Resources continued...

- Drawing Tutorials Online [Paywall]
http://drawingtutorialsonline.com/
You can learn everything you need too know for free, but it's a helluva lot easier with some professional critique. If you can afford $20 a month, this is probably one of the best $20 a month you can spend. Matt does feedback on Monday for submitted pieces, and there are a plethora of amazing video tutorials and live drawings here.

- Painting Tutorials Online [Paywall]
http://www.painting-tutorials-online.com/
This is an off-shoot of DTO, and cost ~$9.99 a month. There is some great info on here, but your money is better spent on Drawing Tutorials Online.

- Timed Poses [Free]
http://www.quickposes.com/gestures/timed
I know you slack off on this. Stop slacking off on this. You need to be doing at least 20 quickposes a night. I do one set of 20 a night, with two sets of full body a week, one set of hands, and one set of faces a week.

- Animation Exercises [List]
http://thirstyanimator.com/51-great-animation-exercises-to-master/
If you want to animate, you really should have completed every single thing on this list. I also think this is a really great way to test out a new recurring character that you plan to be using allot.

Preferred Oil Painting Palette

This is 100% personal preference, and has little resemblance with classical methods. It's something I stumbled upon, and found I liked quite well. This palette lends nicely to realism since the colors are very much subdued. I will edit with a color-wheel sample at some point.

Brand - Winsor & Newton Winton Oil Color
I love this brand, I've only picked up one 37ml tube where the oil was separated. It has a smooth texture, plays nicely with most mediums, IS CHEAP, and has wonderful coverage. I pay around $4-$8 per 37ml tube.

Note: Van Gogh is an option, but if you buy a large tube, be prepared to transfer it to another container (it bleeds like all hell). It also has poor coverage (less pigment) and about half the tubes I've opened had the oil separated. It's cheap though, it will get the job done.

As I stated above, I prefer to buy my paint from:
http://www.dickblick.com/products/winsor-and-newton-winton-oil-colors/

Palette:
Alizarin Crimson (37ml)
French Ultramarine (37 ml)
Cadmium Hue Pale Yellow (37 ml)
Titanium White (200 ml) Just get a big white, it will last forever. Ease up on the white use.

Historical Oil Painting [Free]
http://www.getty.edu/conservation/publications_resources/pdf_publications/pdf/historical_paintings.pdf
An interesting resource, it has lots of originals and close-ups of different popular works. There are also some passing references to early working materials. Not a complete study, but a nice stepping post towards a full study.

100 FREE Art Books [Free]
http://www.goldcoastartclasses.com/100-best-free-art-e-books.html
I've just started digging through this, and I will be saving the works as I suggest you do. There are many books listed here that I can attest are very good.

The Painter In Oil [Free]
http://www.storytellerartist.com/documents/Painter_in_Oil.pdf
Another great resources for oil painters.

Empty Easel [List]

Great YouTube Channels:

https://www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL
I fucking love this channel. The FZD school produces quality artists, but this channel is not for advertising the school. Rather, the owner himself is often providing amazing advice and answering questions. You should definitely be spending some time here.

https://www.youtube.com/user/DrawMixPaint
Alright, so be careful with this guy. He definitely has an agenda to push his products and method. I don't agree with his method at all, as it is basically tracing and voids the student of understanding form. His color theory though is right on, and I fell in love with his palette color choice. Although I prefer Flake White over Titanium White.

We have an art board now, yay!

I love supporting drawfags/artfags. If you want me to plug your projects, kick starters and work, just post your links in this thread and I'll try and help get the word out.

Pic is some fan art I got.

Critiques Billy 02/09/2016 (Tue) 03:04:05 [Preview] No. 2 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Keep all critique request here. Do not create threads for critiques unless that thread is created for the purpose of discussing specific technique/genre. Before asking for a critique, ask yourself two questions.

1. "Is this the absolute best I can do?" If it's not, you are wasting everyone's time, and the critique will be worth very little to you.

2. "Do I want critique?" If you can't handle critique of all forms, you are wasting your time and everyone else's time.

And then we discussed information theory!
By the time a signal get's to you, the event is in the past. The more complex the event, the longer the signal takes. Accounting for the complexity of global society, if you want to understand the present, you need to study the past.
That being said, fauvism is way cooler than whatever the fuck the mona lisa is on about.

>The Animator's Survival Guide
Read this if you want to hate animating. Williams makes it very tedious and takes the fun out of it, and animation should be fun. Check out http://johnkcurriculum.blogspot.com/ instead.

Interesting palette, I'll check it out.

I use a modified Zorn palette:

Ivory Black
Titanium White
Yellow Ochre
Cadmium Red / Crimson (or Alizarin Crimson) / Vermilion

and cobalt or ultramarine blue, sometimes magenta, burnt sienna, burnt umber, and cadmium yellow.

The Painter in Oil Anonymous 02/24/2016 (Wed) 19:38:23 [Preview] No. 38 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
All aspiring artist, especially painters, should read this work.

http://www.storytellerartist.com/documents/Painter_in_Oil.pdf

It is old, but still relevant in most ways. It also presents some good arguments for traditional methods over whatever art has become.
