I don't know if this would fit better with /tunes/ but artwork for albums could fit here.

But anyways, here's a thread for album artwork you really like.

These were used for the inner sleeve artwork for Talk Talk's 1986 album "The Colour of Spring, of which James Marsh did the artwork for.

If artists weren't allowed to waste paper we wouldn't have artists. ;)
More of of a price than waste, the price of art. On top of as said above using both sides and making use of scraps, you could always get into making paper as well. Just need a used old blender, some metal screening and a frame of some scrap wood. Make paper sludge out of old newspapers and practice sketches you don't want to keep.

Or you could always take the modern route and make digital art instead, nothing wrong with that. Get a cheap wacom. I just find drawing for real to be more comfy, and I really don't need another hobby I need to sit at the computer for. (not needing real space to keep all your practice sketches to check your progress sounds so neat though)

Haha, that brings me back. I thought likewise and only drew on A4 copy paper before I started my apprenticeship, because I got a box of 2500 sheets as a present for Christmas. It was a great present.

Don't worry! Paper is cheap. Don't let yourself get hindered by such concerns! Drawing on huge sheets is fun because you can utilize your elbow instead of doing everything with your wrist. This will improve your skills and might help you finding your style.

Let's post our favourite movie of all time or a great movie you recently watched.

I'll start.

My favourite movie is Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. The movie is amazing, very funny while maintaining the seriousness of the topic. [spoiler]The Coca-Cola part is fantastic[/spoiler].

Another movie that also really like is Persepolis (yeah, I'm reposting from the .tokyo thread). It's an animation film that tells the story of the author during and after the Islamic revolution. The art is quite unique and the main character is lovely!

Tree of Life is good. The Thin Red Line is also very good.

My favourite Malick film though is Knight Of Cups, which probably says more about where I am in life than anything else.

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring. Quiet, contemplative, beautifully shot.

Terry Gilliams' The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The top of the heap of nostalgia films from my childhood including but not limited to The Gods Must Be Crazy, Willow, The Princess Bride, The Goonies, and The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

Three films will do.

>>68
As a piece of cinematography, it is good. The story is nothing amazing. Cruise is bearable, Kidman is unbearable. Barry Lyndon is definitely underrated.

I used to really love 2001 but the "big picture" storyline has lost it charm on me over the years, contrast this with the very personal Knight Of Cups. I still own a segment of Kubrick's personal cut of 2001 that came with the first print run of The Stanley Kubrick Archives.

Here I will drop my anchor in fertile ground.

Here we really know what we are talking about, because we have experienced the trembling and the awakening.

Drunk with energy, we are revenants thrusting the trident into heedless flesh. We are streams of curses in the tropical abundance of vertiginous vegetation, resin and rain is our sweat, we bleed and burn with thirst, our blood is strength.

The work of creative writers, written out of the author's real necessity, and for his own benefit. The awareness of a supreme egoism, wherein laws become significant. Every page should explode, either because of its profound gravity, or its vortex, vertigo, newness, eternity, or because of its staggering absurdity, the enthusiasm of its principles, or its typography.

So I noticed recently that while a lot of people here do some realy great art, no-one seems to be writing stories with it. Creating comics is one of the best ways to improve because it forces you to look at all areas of art, it keeps you motivated since you have a task with a foreseeable endgoal, and it poses lots of creative challenges. Don't just think of it as a means to be gooder at artisting though.

Don't think you have to nail regular drawing before you can start doing comics. If you think that, you will never do anything. You don't have to be good, you just have to be creative. Try not to just do moeblobs standing still and talking about how their mangaka is such a qt, make your images dynamic and try to communicate something like a story or a feeling.

There's a great series of blogposts called '18 tips for comic book artists'. http://www.williamstout.com/news/journal/?p=3806

Hey sushis! My bf is an incredible artist and he's always wanted create a graphic novel. He's working on typing the story out and developing characters before he starts though. I think he should just start with what he has already but he's a bit of a perfectionist lol. He works a full-time job so this is just a hobby and he doesn't have much time to work on it. Is there anything I can do to support him or make it easier for him? I'd love for him to reach his goal.

so what do you sushis think about it? honestly i think it's just right lifestyle for me
would you do something like that and where would you go?

I personally have no real intent of moving out of the US, mostly because I have zero clue where I would really move to.

But I agree with >>401, I'd like to hear why Western Europe is a lost cause.

Not a joke, but I acknowledged that Brazil is rough compared my own nation. I guess it's better to say that I didn't put much thought into moving, something I don't intend to do.

>I'd love to be able to live in places like the US
When most people think of the US, they're thinking of the big coastal cities. The cost of living there doesn't really allow for a digital nomad lifestyle unless you're a rich trust fund kid like >>396 said. The rest of the US has plenty of nature, but no jobs and no facilities.

>>399
Western Europe has the same cost of living problem. If you have connections to find cheap housing, can handle couch surfing, or have a paid scholarship, it's pretty chill here. I've met plenty of exchange students and expats from the US and Easter/Southern Europe who say they prefer it here.

South-East Asia seems to be the biggest digital nomad hotspot, because a freelance wage can easily support a comfortable lifestyle there.

What're your favorite books?

I could perhaps be called an artsy snob for this, but one of my absolute favorite novels is House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. I've always found the concept of labyrinths to be fascinating, as well as that of the inherent uncertainty in the image of reality presented to us by our sensory perception. This book features those two themes quite prominently, and explores them to a depth I've not seen in any other books I've yet read.

This next one might also reflect questionably on my character, but nonetheless I greatly enjoyed American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. I've struggled a lot with recurrent depersonalization, feelings of dread, and a general impression of isolation from those around me. Since the book addresses all of that, it resonated with me in that regard–though, not so much with some of the other stuff it describes.

I also love tons of H. P. Lovecraft's and Jorge Luis Borges's work, but those are predominantly short stories, not novels.

Hanta Yo by Ruth Beebe Hill is another favorite. Translating the book from English to Lakotah and back was a great literary choice. Really felt immersive, which was good because the plot spans generations and the reader really can't lean on a character throughout the duration of the book.

Long time fan of HP Lovecraft, Jack Kerouac, and Hunter Thompson. The wave speech in Fear and Loathing had me me feel some type of way I never got over.

But my latest favorite has been The Unnoticables by Rob Brockway. Despite being very modern and simply written at times, the story is both gripping and strikes a chord with my inner punk rocker.

Brockway's story is both a look at life's evolution since the 70's to the 2010's and does so with a hint of comedy and a heap of cosmic horror that pleases the Lovecraft fan inside me.

That sounds like a fun thing to do actually. Got a small one I inherited from my grandfather. It is the kind that can fold out so you can sit on it.

A compact fishing rod, pans, a knife, and a tarp, and I pretty much have all that I need for a weekend in the woods. + some extra food rations in case I can't find any fish. My sleeping bag might be compact enough to fit in it too. Even just a day trip would be nice.

I recently figured out that I absolutely love dark, Gothic stuff, be it art, TV or music.

The exact name of this peculiar genre I don't know, but when I find examples of it I lap it up. It's solemn in tone and touches frequently on death, darkness and the Unknown. The kind of thing that makes you feel alone, desperately alone. Wandering alone through a deserted field in the cold and rain towards the light, the single, lone house on the hill containing the single, lone farmer. There's something comfy in that for me.

Anyway, here are some examples/recommendations:
Over the Garden Wall is the best example in TV or cartoons. I've watched it at least three times.
This album I picked up - Stuck on a Sunday. Webm related.
This kind of art: https://art.vniz.net/en/ - including some by Zdzislaw Beksiński, which has been posted here.

Does anyone else like this macabre art? Does anyone have any recommendations?
