Having great time here with all beautiful artwork
- jesse hamm's tips twittera flat, simple coloring style works best with inked cartooning (e.g., Asterix).
The line artist is trying to summarize form with line; adding painterly gradations of shadow in the colors competes with that goal, like adding more words to a haiku.
Painterly colors work best when the line artist deliberately leaves forms undefined by line, so they can be defined by colors. Cary Nord did this when drawing CONAN,
leaving many forms to be defined in the colors by Dave Stewart. See also Arthur Rackham, Carl Larsson, etc.
Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone has any insight or website recommendations.
I'm not really connected to the furry community anymore but this is where I've been used to uploading most of my art in the past.
I've stopped uploading here because of my decrease in furry art but I now don't host my art anywhere and it mostly goes unseen.
I still do a lot of nsfw and I want something that's not too rulesy so I can have everything in one place. I'm also really disconnected from social media but I think tumblr seems like it's nsfw friendly?
What's my best options?
Oh man. The Loomis books! The people who own the rights to those books simply don't care (be that a corporation or the Loomis state). They are so widely distributed with no repercussions that for years the myth of them being public domain has prevailed, as they won't be public domain for another 50 years or so.Website with books by Andrew Loomis

Incredible website about digital painting, and includes some videos about drawing basics (skills required either for digital or traditional)
www.ctrlpaint.com: Free Video Library
This is a site focused on writting and office supplies but it has a great selection of pencils, markers, pens, brush pens, inks and other items necessary for illustration (specially comic/manga style), I think it is more useful for people in the USA tho
JetPens.com - Japanese Pens and Stationery

My favorite free digital painting program
Krita | Digital Painting. Creative Freedom.
I use an application called pureref for this purpose. It's really fantastic.I saw someone share Wysp, where the site has an application at the side so you can draw while looking at the references.
Is there another website like this? or another way of doing this?
Edit: Also my tablet won't work on Wysp. I try to draw there and it just scrolls instead, OTL
