Got a Photoshop CS6 question.

Can i copy paste an image into photoshop without making a whole new layer for it?
It's really annoying.
#73004 to #73003 - Absolute Madman (4 hours ago) [-]
Not really, what you can do is copy and merge that layer into another one if it bugs you.
User avatar #73005 to #73004 - skabbalabba ONLINE (4 hours ago) [-]
I somehow didn't think about that.
Not quite what i hoped to hear, but i guess it'll do.
#73000 - hsm ONLINE (12 hours ago) [-]
Still playing around with the brushes. I should think up a suitable project in which to use them.

need some music suggestions for stuff to draw to
User avatar #72998 to #72993 - ingrain (17 hours ago) [-]
For me works music, that is thematic the same like the thing I want to draw, and there is a lot of soundtracks involved: For example, if I draw Fantasy stuff (knights, elves, dwarves) then I listen mostly to fantasy soundtracks.
User avatar #72999 to #72998 - trisketthebiskit (17 hours ago) [-]
hmm interesting maybe i should give that a try

I want to start drawing but I have no idea where to start, I'm not really creative and I can't into perspective or 3d objects. Are there some books I can download to get me started with some basic sketching/figures/shading? Maybe some Loomis?
User avatar #72986 to #72983 - alleksi ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
I would start with "Keys to drawing"
Fun with pencil is a good book, but I feel like people misuse it when they get to the part where he is doing those funny looking dudes. Still highly recommendable
Drawing on the right side of the brain is good as well, but the author tells you to build all these weird tools to help you through it. At that point I dropped it, but the beginning part of it is good.

if you want to read books, which is definitely recommendable, I would start with those. There are also youtube videos and channels that are definitely worth checking out.

Prokotv has good videos on anatomy, figure drawing, and basic fundamentals. From what I've seen, he mostly teaches Loomis' figure drawing methods and Hampton's gesture methods. So you can get the same information from their respective books (figure drawing for all its worth, and Figure drawing: design and invention)

Sycra's channel is also pretty good, he has some ok tutorials and has been doing new versions of his old tutorials as well. I think his channel is best for a kind of an" insight in to the artists mind" type thing though.
User avatar #72991 to #72986 - beatmasterz (05/28/2015) [-]
Thanks I'll check that out

Whatever happened to just drawing
User avatar #72988 to #72987 - alleksi ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
Of course you can "just draw" and get better like that. But there are generations upon generations of artists before you who have spent their life figuring out and perfecting different methods and tricks to speed up the learning progress and whatnot. So I see no reason not to learn from those who came before you.
User avatar #72990 to #72988 - thegrohltroll (05/28/2015) [-]
You're absolutely right

Some day I will do cleanup

Today I have also been using the eraser side of my stylus to draw. I feel zero difference between this and the pen tip one, and the eraser doesn't wore down.

What do I do if it goes to the wrong places? Is there some place I should contact?
User avatar #72961 to #72960 - ohmeghon (05/28/2015) [-]
its a self help kind of deal.

You can erase it yourself with the packaged rubber, or contact other people and see if they will buy it regardless.
User avatar #72962 to #72961 - twystdmmindtwo (05/28/2015) [-]
Would Amazon support help me? I hear they have very good support and seeing as I bought the graphite from them it is their obligation to help. Right?
User avatar #72963 to #72962 - ohmeghon (05/28/2015) [-]
Yeah that sounds legit. Pretty sure that would work if you can write up a solid case. ... and you're in america.

Soo the other day in Photoshop class I decided to sketch out an eye (really 'original', I know,) for the giggles, and it was actually really fun drawing it with thick transparent brushes.
#72951 - mikimowse (05/28/2015) [-]
Does anyone by chance know how I can get Photoshop for free? I used to have it on my old computer; I had to download a patch, but I can't find it again. Also old computer's HDD was totally fried I don't know how to torrent
User avatar #72956 to #72951 - citruslord ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
If you don't know how to do it, it's probably better to just use something cheaper/free already. GIMP, SAI, Krita, painter. Depending on what you want to do, there's almost certainly something that can do it better, cheaper. Photoshop is kind of your all around good at everything type. But doesn't have the variety of brushes that painter or Krita has, or built in line smoothing like SAI. Just my 2 cents, photoshop isn't really worth the hassle.
#72992 to #72956 - mikimowse (23 hours ago) [-]
I already have sai, krita and gimp.
#72942 - hsm ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
I've downloaded a shit ton of brushes and i wanted to test em out. The drawing is kinda shit but i like all the fucking textures i'm getting. I might do something creative with it.

So some nerd is trying to comission me.   
What the fuck do I do.   
Like what would be a good price for an amateur   
General consensus seems to be payment first   
I usually do my draws in one session but I think I'll need like 2 weeks to make something I'll actually be happy to give to someone that paid me.

how good of an artist are you
User avatar #72922 to #72921 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
Thoroughly offended, I post here at least 5% as much as groulgarigon
and that's a fuckin lot

I'm pretty terrible, I only started a year and a half ago, and I've since only drawn about 3 things seriously.

Despite that, I think I've done some pretty alright stuff, but mostly through a shit ton of trial and error. Meaning I spend approximately 5 hours on some line art that would have taken one of you approximately 10 minutes, for srs.

I'll post my art tumblr that I just set up as soon as puush stops being a shit and lets me download my files.

oh and he wants waist up full colour anime shit
#72924 to #72923 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
My best being opinionated of course

I'm imagining most of you will tell me not to bother yet, but I'm in pretty deep already after being recommended, and fuck it, I can just charge less and they can just cut it off if they don't like what I've got already.

Ye, we get mistaken a lot, no worries ^^
User avatar #72929 to #72924 - groulgarigon (05/27/2015) [-]
Hmmmm.... I'd estimate your skills at about $6 an hour. If the idea is simple like a waist up shot, full color, try for $20-$30.
User avatar #72927 to #72924 - newbtwo (05/27/2015) [-]
seems not anime-y enough to me

thats not a bad thing, but if the nerd commissioned for anime-y...
User avatar #72930 to #72927 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
This is just one thing I've done, though I've never really gone for a specific style.
There's most of it, bar a few things I don't want seen because they were just practice.


$6/hour? Hahah, nearly as much as I'd get paid in a dead end job, but it's actually fun. I appreciate that.

I was planning on charging like £5($7 or something) and pushing him for some free advertisment. He's a youtuber or something.

I don't want to simplify the idea of art styles because I don't understand them at all, but I'd like to think I'm in a position to go for most any style, since I'm good at none. The only parts I'm intimidated by are "waist up" because I can't people body do, and full colour, because detail in a situation like this scares me.
User avatar #72936 to #72930 - groulgarigon (05/27/2015) [-]
Do as few things new with a commission. Especially your first. Do what you normally do with this one. And what problems do you have with drawing people. Concepting or detailing?
User avatar #72937 to #72936 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
I'm still at the "holy fuck posing stop" phase
and perspectives still make me hurt
User avatar #72938 to #72937 - groulgarigon (05/27/2015) [-]
So the concepting phase then. I can start you off if you give me an idea you'd like to go with.
User avatar #72940 to #72938 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
Sounds good. Just sent that same link to the guy, it's make or break time.
Then crying myself to sleep from panic and starting or not starting tomorrow
User avatar #72941 to #72940 - groulgarigon (05/27/2015) [-]
Important to sleep. Take a deep breath and tell yourself that worrying will only ruin your rest and won't get you any closer to the end product. Worrying will only make you hesitate.
User avatar #72946 to #72941 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
Aight, sounds good.

Didn't go through, but I've been reminded that it's a very real possibility.
Reason being that I'm not massively anime, and didn't have many people body examples.
User avatar #72920 to #72917 - groulgarigon (05/27/2015) [-]
If this is your first one go with whatever feels right. There's no possible way you'll have a frame of reference. Just set yourself up for this: Your first commission will be a train wreck of bad decisions. You'll make a bad decisions on the price, bad decisions on the time frame for completion, bad decisions on the final quality. Everything. Even so I recommend doing it. The more you do the better an idea you'll get of where you stand and what you're worth.

If you like, you can show me your stuff and I could give you a rough estimate. Also let me know how quickly you draw.
#72919 to #72917 - kothaex ONLINE (05/27/2015) [-]
oh yeah and shit
tax and stuff
I'm in England
how does this affect me, or do I not have to bother with it until I'm over a certain amount or something
User avatar #72926 to #72919 - groulgarigon (05/27/2015) [-]
You don't have to worry about taxes (at least in America) until you go over $10,400. Before then you are under the amount that you are payed until you actually owe taxes. I don't know how it do in the UK. I'd recommend looking it up because the Federal Reserve is a milking slut and will take money from whoever they can get it from.

Horse barebacking.

I'm endlessly clever, Shutup.

You see the irony comes form the fact that it's an anthro horse riding a feral horse implying a gap in the evolutionary chain, subverting your assumption that furries all universally evolve at the same time.

Also holographic birds.

The drawing I paid 40 dollars for and waited 3 months for was finally started, and finished, yesterday. The artist even streamed it. It turned out very damn perfect, especially for only 40 dollars. Like shit, I love everything about it.

So damn happy right now. Very happy. Just like, shit. It's great.
