Ya know what? It's bullshit that we're a drawing board and can't talk about artsy shit like how to draw or post practice work

>we /i/c now
>Post advices, post practice drawings, reference, help each other out
yeah but
why not just go on /ic/
it doesn't make sensemble there's already a board for this very thing
why bring it to the board
that isn't for that thing?
No need for drama. Thread will live or die based on popularity.

>ngmi tryhard mentality
>a noteworthy amount of anons admit they don't even find art to be enjoyable anymore in the confession threads

i can see why op wouldn't want to go there, though this board isn't a whole lot better
You forgot:
>don't draw anime ever until you have mastered all skillsets in art
>"this is anime. I have no idea really what's wrong with it other than some of ways it's stylized. Lol just read loomis, it's not like an actual personal critique would be useful"

remember to take a break if you get too frustrated at seeing no results, anger is actually wasting alot of energy that could be used better at drawing/improving

could I get some advice?
something about this piece has been bothering me, but I havent been able to distinguish what. I haven't cleaned it yet or anything, so if it's just the lineart or messy painting that's up, I can fix that, but I mean moreso like, the composition itself.

Do you draw the underlying figure first, then add clothes later?

The main thing I'm seeing is that the neck is weirdly long and the head seems kind of off center.
This might just be due to how you draw bodies, but it seems really thin, and I think there could be a widening where the hip bones would be since that's more readily apparent on skinny guys.
your lines feel kinda 2D and flat compared to the shading, maybe that's your issue. i dont have the technical skill to try to redline it but work on adding line depth i think.
Stretchy neck
Draw real people. Get a feel for anatomy.

What's the difference between /i/ and /ic/?
/i/ is for people who enjoy drawing more than talking about drawing.

Made a super quick copy and paste of the guy's head. The neck is super long so it throws off the sense of the body's natural rhythm. If the neck is supposed to be on the long side, then you have to be anal about spinal curvature. Take into consideration that the neck would have to support so much weight. Think of how swans and geese have bent necks. I also slightly shifted the head to the right.
Oh I kind of understand now. I'm not a den/i/zen

did a questionable exercise

>place my reference directly over my painting at 100% opacity
>switch it on and off while i paint to ensure accuracy
>use the color picker to make sure the colors are accurate

i didn't trace it in the traditional sense, but it feels like the next closest thing. still, it taught me a lot about how skin tones work and what the process of painting a face should look like. next step is to paint a portrait with the reference adjacent to rather than directly on top of my work

How do i get it to 'click' if you get me? Quite unsure where to go with my practice
How do I do this type of line in CSP? Please. I know someone's just going to say hard round lmao but I was able to get a brush that did this type of style in Sai. Ever since I switched to CSP, I just can't find a way to remake it.
if you're talking about what i think you are, you need to set your brush opacity to be controlled by pen pressure. i dont have csp so i dont know how to set it but its probably what you want

What do
tracing is fine anon, as long as you aren't claiming you did it from pure reference. Tracing is an exercise that most colleges and unis use. Don't be so harsh on yourself. Pro artists use projectors to get parts of their work right, hell, I've watched a pro use a projector and he "traced" the whole face to paint later.

You're fine.
