/rfdp/ - References Dump

No.5853211 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
A place to find and share interesting and/or useful reference images.
Ideally images taken with a camera (real life images)

The goal is to have a constant flow of unique/interesting/weird/useful imagery.
What someone finds interesting and/or useful is subjective and there is no set theme or specific type of images you can expect ITT.
Try your best to keep reality front and center.

If you want a source, please try reverse image searching and then asking the poster.

If you use any images ITT for your art, it is encouraged to share what you create!

i dunno if /ic/ is the right place to ask for this but i have this memory of seeing a renaissance era ship painting that i cant get out of my head but i couldnt find it anywhere online so i wanted to ask here. from what i remember the painting had:
>a perspective from the rear(stern) of the ship with the ship taking up most of the bottom right portion of the painting
>immaculate detail of the ship and vibrant colours (i remember a bit of turquoise on the ship itself)
>some writing in latin on the top of the painting similar to other paintings of the era
>possibly more ships further out into the horizon (the ship was a galleon so it could be a spanish treasure fleet)
>slightly fucked up proportions unlike later paintings of 18th century ships that are more realistic

if this is not the place to ask for stuff like this, tell me which board i should ask next

Manga Making General

No.5845153 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making and Manga-style illustration.

Support each other and talk about your work or the work of others that excites you. Inking, character design, paneling / layout, writing, planning, and other discussions are all welcome.
Post resources, questions, in-progress pages, breakdowns of other works, etc. If a work is not yours, credit the maker (unless it's fucking obvious like a full page of One Piece or something).
Thanks to everyone for making /mmg/ a level-headed and helpful place. Remember, drawing and making comics and manga are difficult endeavors, and we're all in this struggle together.

OC Redraw Thread

Welcome to the OC Thread

Draw someone's OC or post your own. All skill levels are welcome.


1: Post a brief backstory if your OC has one.

2: Keep it fairly SFW, please.

3: This is NOT a request thread, also posting your OC also isn't a guarantee that someone will draw your character/ exchange deliveries. Regardless please consider exchanging drawings with your fellow anons as it's what keeps these threads going.

4: Character/ Lore Dumps are allowed, just be sure to specify that you're not posting with the expectation of getting deliveries.

5: Be sure to thank Drawfrens for their hard work as soon as you can, it's just common courtesy :)

/asg/ - Anime Study General

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Draw copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice.

Use this thread instead of making new threads or post in the Drawthread with fundamental exercises.


RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS using one of the following methods:
1.-screenshot the image and post that instead
2.-change camera capture settings to something smaller
3.-send to computer and resize in MSPaint


TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.
