    When sketching, do you use a tablet, or pencil/paper?

    what size of paper do you draw on? When I fear I will run out of space I use a 57x37 sheets, and if I feel I'll need more space I get the 100x70cm type. Don't ask me about scanning the later :I I've been looking to buy one of those huge paper roll that have about 50mts but so far I haven't come...

    Help on this forearm?

    Glad I could help, and it's great to know you're willing to take more constructive critiques! Looking better at your drawing I could identify a fundamental underlying issue; the structure of the shapes can be improved more. Working on the structures of your shapes your shading will improve and...

    So FA is 10 years old...ever going to update the site?

    Yeah, and it's sad. Right now I'd rather browse e621 than FA, I can filter all the stuffs I don't want to see without fearing that something is misstagged or put under the wrong rating. Allowing users to be active in the tagging system is something I'm liking (not just because I'm lazy tagging...

    When sketching, do you use a tablet, or pencil/paper?

    Both. It took me a few months to learn to sketch on my tablet and even more to like how the sketches came out. It was easier when I started experimenting with brushes that imitate the pencil look/texture, however I prefer how my pencil sketch look over my digital ones.

    Never said I didn't want folders, I was expressing my prefered priority. The lack of folders never has grossed or creeped the hell out of me (using adult and mature filter).

    What canvas size do you usually draw at?

    5000px for half bodies and up to 10000px if it's an scene. I work on such big canvases out of pure comfort, there's no reason to work on such big sizes unless you're going to do big prints. Then resize to 1200px for FA, 2000px for my site and 3000px-4000px for the costumer so they can make...

    I know, I've been here since 2007 I agree, I could care less about folders if we had a tag blacklist system.

    Lets say you HAD to paint anthros in another style...

    Don't forget turds in jars. Velazquez and Lucian Freud for their brush work and Guayasamin for his colors (internet photographs make no justice to his paintings)

    The "Google meme"

    Neither I do, nor I like the avant-garde artists, conceptualism, minimalism, ready-mades, pop-art (I want to punch in the face anyone that adores Warhol), etc. But I was given historical context to understand them, and I don't think they're the assholes. I think it was the snobs and the people...

    The "Google meme"

    Duchamp's artwork had way too much to do with his context, trying to imitate him without fully understanding his relation with his historical moment on the art insitution is really bad, and it's even worse if someone is teaching how to do this works but won't teach the history. Can't say I...
