  • What kind of film does my polaroid take?

    So i collect various cameras, and I recently came across a Polaroid Image 2 and decided to buy it. I just want to know what type of film it takes? Is it the same film as the spectra? Could someone link me some film to buy for this camera? thanks.

    I've been thinking of getting the 10.5" one. I need it mainly for drawing. This year I started my career as a tattoo artist, I also work as a freelance illustrator (since 2 years) designing album covers and band merchandise. I don't earn crazy money just yet, I'd say it's a normal yet irregular pay. I'm 19 and live with my parents who luckily don't charge me rent. I'm saving money to move out on my own, that's why I'm so unsure if I should spend £600 on a gadget plus £100 for the pen. But if not now, will I afford it when I'll need to pay my bills later on? I'm mainly a traditional artist but I've been wanting to branch out more to digital art. For now I have a crappy pad from Amazon that I've had for 3 years that I plug into my laptop, the stylus often looses connection and it's overall a frustrating experience to use it, it slows me down and I become discouraged to finish anything ...but it does the job nonetheless. It's a lot of money but it seems like a good investment, after all I am drawing for a living and will continue to do this for as long as possible, I absolutely LOVE my two jobs and know that this will be so useful but I feel bad for spending so much money. I need opinions..

  • Is there a point when you're self teaching yourself art where everything just "clicks"?

    I'm self teaching myself art, and have gone back to complete basics. I've been learning fundamentals, drawing from life, drawing every day etc. I'm a long way from having amazing artwork that is realistic, and have been struggling to nail proportions.

    I'm self teaching myself art, and have gone back to complete basics. I've been learning fundamentals, drawing from life, drawing every day etc. I'm a long way from having amazing artwork that is realistic, and have been struggling to nail proportions. So I'm wondering if there is a point where after hours and hours of drawing where it all clicks and makes sense. I've looked at art classes and getting a tutor, and sadly I can get neither just now. Also any tips or drawing exercises that helped you or people you know in practising art and making you a better artist would be really appreciated. :)

  • Should I take a Ceramics or a Photography class in college? I have no experience in either, but I m looking to expand my horizons.?

    Best answer: I'd suggest photography . You'll be much more likely to benefit for the rest of your life from the principles you learn there, and in all kinds of other pursuits/etc (including all kinds of art-related ones ). You'll also be much more likely to actually do photography during the rest of your life... show more
    Best answer: I'd suggest photography .
    You'll be much more likely to benefit for the rest of your life from the principles you learn there, and in all kinds of other pursuits/etc (including all kinds of art-related ones ).
    You'll also be much more likely to actually do photography during the rest of your life than ceramics, and photography will be much cheaper and easier to do than ceramics for all those years.

    Both will be "art" though and you'd learn lots of art-related things from both. But if you are really drawn to actually building/shaping something *with your hands* and are interested in the kinds of things that earthen clay can do, that might be better (although there are many other "clays" you could do many of the same things with, and more, and without needing special equipment and supplies --like polymer clay, epoxy clay, or one of the many air-dry clays (homemade or purchased, even including papier mache which can be done in quite artistic and/or sophisticated ways btw). Also with ceramics you'd be doing only a few things, and each would be a drawn-out process also involving waiting between steps and you'd get to see what you'd done (to learn for next times) only those few times. With photography, you'd be doing lots and lots of things (shots, etc) and get immediate feedback (if using a digital camera), and even if you also did special techniques and/or effects you'd see the results much more quickly.

    Of course, the teacher you get will make a huge difference too. So if you know that the ceramics or photography teacher you'd get is really great, then go for that one.

    P.S. Photography was my main "hobby" before I discovered polymer clay, and that's kept my interest for over 25 years, especially due to all the very different things one can do with it and being able to do polymer clay with only a home oven and supplies/etc I mostly find around the house or repurpose...I even have a website info about all the things it can do:

  • How much do I charge for this custom pencil drawing? (Photo attached)?

    How much do I charge for this custom pencil drawing? (Photo attached)?

    The drawing is for my old English teacher, and it's of her two children. She told me to name the price, but I have never worked professionally before so I don't know what to do. I recently turned 18, and I have been drawing for a little over two years. The piece is a 16x20, and I have been working on it... show more

I recently turned 18, and I have been drawing for a little over two years. The piece is a 16x20, and I have been working on it all summer. I would say I've spent over 50 hours on it. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!

  • How do I make myself look good in selfies when I never like how I look?

    I never like how I look in photos. I try taking the photo from a slightly higher than eye level angle, I even edit the photo to black and white. It seems more flattering for me that way. But I am still not liking the angles of my face. Advice?
