No. I like my turp like I like my alcohol: pure, simple, and easy to get high off.

There really isn't a proper art board here.

/ic/ is basically just a manga illustration board...

Any fine art or abstract art thread gets sent to the bottom straight away because it's not manga illustration

The long answer?
I've been trying to shift from traditional to digital mainly due to a lack of space to paint. Then...somehow I ended up here (I think I was looking for photoshop torrents?). And then I hung around a bit and found it pretty comfy. I started reading the logo critiques and looking at web design threads. Seeing the theories you'd previously learnt applied in a very different setting was genuinely interesting.

I ended up procrastinating on that photoshop download and went to learn Blender instead, but I still visit /gd/ because I like reading the content on the board. There's always something that makes me smile whenever I visit. (Also Kerning is cute.)

I do not know this painting yet I'd hazard a guess the scene is circa 19th or even early 20th century.

I think it's a good idea to have fine art on graphic design board as well. Just my opinion, though.

>>355406
As far as /ic/, I don't see too many manga posts on it. Maybe it depends on the day of the week.

>>355565
Did you paint that pepe?

Did you ever try gimp or inkscape? krita?

>Did you paint that pepe?
Nah, oil paints are expensive, I wouldn't waste it like that. Pic related is what I did paint (no bully), but since I lost the space I had, it's going to be a WIP for another 10 years or something. I'm really hoping to finish it before I die, at least.

>Did you ever try gimp or inkscape? krita?
I've tried gimp, but boy is the learning curve steep. I haven't tried inkscape and krita. I've mainly been playing around with corel painter essentials, since that came with the wacom I got, but nothing beats the feeling of painting traditionally.

Very nicely painted, brush strokes look beautiful, I love the pink figure. It'd be great to watch at different times of day. Crude but tactile.

Grimshaw's cityscapes can be very unsatisfying, they're a façade.
