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.

>>547365
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.

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.

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

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.

>Please ignore giraffe neck
>its a little vent doodle

How does the bruising look? I want it to be kind of realistic, or at least give off a "oof that looks painful" vibe? I've become desensitized and I'm not sure if I should do more rendering on it or not? Like maybe throw more yellows and greens into it? Maybe some blues?
>Thanks in advance guys
>>
>>553206

I like the depth on the face, you seem to have a decent grasp of 3d space even with the minimalistic elements. The ear seems to be the weakest part of the picture as the rendering is confused/flat. The bruising is alright, all I would say is consider the angle at which the aggressor inflicted the bruise and base it off of the grip. That being said this is quite a sad picture, Once again I have to compliment the face as you can see the complacency and wistful delusions of something deeper than the bruises on her neck. So yeah, keep it up and work on those confusing areas.

Dude, thanks! I honestly didn't expect such a nice response! I honestly totally forgot about the ear. You think this looks any better? I'm gonna do more work on the bruise too. I don't have a clear abuser in mind just yet, so I just have to play with it.

Shhh no ignore the giraffe neck lol. I'll adjust it after I finish rendering her and fix her pose up. Then I'll be combining everything, rendering some more, and I'll be adjusting her neck then.

The first part is the worst part, trying to remember all those old lessons and regain what you've lost, but at least it's interesting.
Then after a few days you quickly start to "activate", and come into your own. By now you're able to win, and the things you've practiced are showing their results. There are still things you've forgotten, but with only a few days there are even new things you didn't know before. You've remembered the words of some old lessons.
For much longer, you start to reach the height of your conditioning, and achieve some of your greatest feats. With this comes a perminant increase in what you can do, and you will have matched the previous generations in most regards, with some aspects or achievements that have had a significant improvement.
Then, it fizzles out, usually with you get distracted by something else, or some insurmountable issue that crushes you. You have to recover your will to repeat again.
Here is the waiting game. You might check out your sketchbook every once in a while, or even draw 1 or 2 drawings, but continuing will generally feel like a big hastle, like some terrible thing you don't want to do at all. It's especially bad considering you're losing conditioning by not continuing, but you just don't want to draw, which really feels bad man.
Much time has gone by, and you're tired of not drawing, or shrugging off every time you decide to draw. You've built up enough will in reserve to push for the climb again.
The the first part is the worst part.

I can kind of understand some criticisms of sakimichan(same face syndrome ect ect) but this is the first that i've heard that people hate illya? whats the deal there? That dude seems like he has really good technique? Is it just a lack of variety in his work with them mostly being portraits?

>>557190
Illya can draw things like buildings , landscapes, and such very well but chooses to waste his time drawing the same black haired bowlcut design over and over with that shitty chromatic abheration added in. Waste of talent

He also used to trace or lean too heavily on reference. He stopped doing it though so whatever.
On the other hand I stopped caring for his work a long time ago, Illya really can't do anything else than portraits of the same cute girls. Have you seen the manga he made? I don't want to judge or shit on anyone's work but I felt a bit embarassed for the guy.
>>
>>57194
lmao man i guess when you put it like that i can see it.

>>557203
Some of those images look incredibly old. The Rukia(kill la kill) one is kind of weird case. Like he still would need some decent art chops to be able to pull that off as well as he did. Like even if i were to trace over an image, i wouldn't be able to render things the way he did but yeah damn, that is some heavy reliance on references. I honestly had no idea and that DA comment is SO fucking weird and not what i would expect from him wow
>>
>>557203
He made a manga? Was it just a bunch of portrait shots with the same expression?

At the beginning he goes on for pages and pages about how he's a normalfag because he chose to be one and it tries really hard to be brooding and mysterious but it comes off as edgy and generic. Look at the backgrounds too...
I'm not pretending to be a comic god and Illya draws girls infinitely better than me but I'd be embarassed to make people pay for this.

>>557210

Wow, just wow. Any panel that isnt a face looks incredibly amateur and what the hell is up with the backgrounds? Are those just real photos changed to greyscale?
>>
>>557266
>>557213

yeah its really jarring the more i look at it. It looks like he took a couple of pictures and then changed it to greyscale and added a couple photoshop filters instead of just drawing them out himself. I mean to be fair, that does save on time and work but aesthetically it doesn't quite mesh together with the drawn characters.

I think you might be having the same problem I was having

You should try to win instead of try to stop sucking. When you try to stop sucking, and you succeed, you have no reason to draw any more; you were just trying not to be bad. but not drawing will soon just make you suck again, and you'll have to do this thing all over again. When you try to win, you can never reach the goal - which is much more satisfying. You don't quit (as often) when you're trying to draw something good.

For that depression, i've looked and there doesn't seem to be a way around it, so you just got to go right through. Work on it, work on one drawing and keep going. If you can get one to come out somewhat meh, but you work on it, you should hopefully be able to push it far enough that you see how it is to make things look good again, you'll remember the old lessons, the old spirit, the old spot you used to be in.

alright hoooo.

I got only a couple bits of advice. One, is you gotta either push through, or give up for good. Surely you must have had moments of success where you made some progress, and that should be enough for you to know it's possible, even if you aren't able to do it now.

If you haven't really had much progress at all however, then I definitely know what the problem must be, and you can finally start winning now. You probably just aren't really drawing what you're looking at as it is, and so you've probably never really even started on the path to learning.

Here's what I mean, basically everyone knows the gist of what an eye is, a circle with a dot in the middle right? but there are tons of tiny little bumps and nicks that if you were actually looking at a eye wouldn't normally think to draw unless you were looking at one and legit went over every single line. Of course the best way to go over every detail is to actually draw every detail, using a picture of an eye to reference from.

Think of it that you're not drawing an eye, but really just copying each of the lines in the same length, angle, location and such that you see when looking at a picture of an eye. The most important take away is to make comparisons. So you draw your line, you actually look to make sure that line looks the same as the one in the reference. If you can do these comparisons, you can learn how things really look like, and start gitting good.

As in try to draw this pic of shiro from deadman wonderland with this as reference. Do it the same exact way, and really try to make it look close to the original lineart. Keep making comparisons to make sure everything is done right and looking the same. Regardless, it's a fun exercise that is usually fruitful.


If i'm wrong and the real problem is mental, then just stop comparing yourself to others, you're running your own race. Try not to be retarded and make yourself feel bad over this shit, it's nonsense. good luck?

>>560834
Rip

okay well there is bound to be some image from some media that has the artstyle you like. If you're looking for realism, then draw people live, or photographs. In fact really, its a good idea to do that no matter what style you're going for. Realism's always a good idea.

I was hoping you could do some thing somewhat simple with lineart, and manga is usually the best for that, but maybe comicbooks will work too if you have any of those.
>>
i'll just spam a few things, and hopefully a couple of them will pique your interest.
>>
>>560836
no don't do that the last thing I want is to derail the thread. I originally just wanted to see what inspired people to keep drawing and improving.
>>
>>560837
well what inspires me now is that desire to make something that looks good, and my recent progress from tackling and trying to understand the parts that I find myself having trouble in.

If I notice that I tend to have trouble on some part, I'll check around it to try and figure out what it is that's doing that. It's helped clear a lot of historic problems for me, which is of course very encouraging. Didn't stop me from getting frustrated though, but I think that's because I'd stopped drawing and forgot how to focus for a bit, and had to grind through some unpleasant stuff to get back. Now i'm actually doing pretty good again.

I could use some advice.

I have a really hard time shading and building up shadows and lights on my drawings (ESPECIALLY with hair.) My drawings always end up looking kind of chalky and I'm not entirely sure how to fix that on a purely mechanical level.

This piece probably isn't a good indicator of that since it doesn't utlize skin tones, I'll see if I can find another one.

I know my anatomy is ass but it's a hell of a lot better than it was 2 years ago. Gotta be bad before you can be good.

You just need to pick a light source, stick with it and create clear separation of light and shadow. Don't blend so much in the beginning. I can see you're kind of doing that, but your light sources are creating lame shadows. Think in terms of design, what would a good shadow shape look like? How can shadows help me create illusion of depth? Stuff like that.
Also think about the difference between cast shadows (which are hard) and form shadows (which are soft). The cylinder is an example. See how hard the cast is vs the form shadow?
If you're struggling, apply a black and white filter to everything so you're not bogged down with color. Focus on value first.

Be more confident with your strokes. Draw from the shoulder instead of moving the wrist. Put down a long stroke and erase if you're not happy. Try not to undo, instead use the eraser tool. This should help you get your lines more confident.

Dudes how do i get good at bodies and limbs and stuff? I keep only doing heads because thats become my comfort zone and im not even very good at them. heres the last thing i did that i even attempted a body at, from the tg ms-paint monster thread.

Any tips for someone who's looking to start drawing? Book recommendations?

sorry if you get this question a lot, but if i want to start drawing, do i just a lot of stuff from irl? even if i want to draw a more cartoony or anime style?
>>
>>563047
>>561838

yes, you should copy reference. It doesn't have to be irl though, you can copy anime and irl. Personally I did both and recommend doing both when you feel up for it. Self portraits can be fun.

>All you gotta do is just make comparisons while you draw, as in just look at what you drew, and make sure it looks the same size and length and place and whatever as the reference. It's really easy, anyone can do it on day 1, and it's fun (or at least interesting). The closer you make it to your reference the better.

>So just try to draw ayumi here, and make comparisons as you do it so that it looks really similar.
Try to do a decent job, put some time in - go slowly if you have to and it should come out better than anything you've ever drawn before. Draw however much of it you want to.


Good luck bruh. This should be enough to put you on the path. Btw when you do eventually attempt copying, could you let me know how it went? I want to be sure my advice is actually getting across the right way. This isn't the first time I've asked people to use reference and I don't want to be autismo.

and of course you can use any reference you find, or even draw yourself.

You only need to do the lineart for these drawings, maybe the shadows if you're feeling up for it. again, good luck!

So something like this? This was back when I was following the w/ic/i and doing grid drawing. I think I focused too hard on shading though.
>>
>>563135
pff no
>>
>>563153
yeah exactly that actually, though try doing it without the grid.

fk maybe that's why no one did it right. Even I started with the grid (in school they just so happened to give us a grid assignment, literally the only reason I can draw today)

I think I'll recommend that from now on, will make things much quicker anyways.

Practice pays off. first I just tried rotating it down (hard). Then I tried taking the regular shape I do when doing side views, and try rotating it, and adding whatever 3D shape needed behind it. The diamond shape is is the essential development here.

I could draw this angle before, but it would take effort and fixing, or reference. I want to draw without pain points and trouble, and reduce it to simple models.

I still got work to do, I'm surely going to figure out more improvements and can get a bit more comfortable.

I got banned for telling crabs to go fuck themselves. Honestly fuck /ic/. Never take advice from them seriously.
>>
>>563766
This isnt entirely true. Grid method can be a good way to simplify observation. Using the grid helps you understand the contours of an object easier os opposed to making rough guesses on how the curve is actually formed.
>>
>>563766
you're a complete retard brainlette. the grid is absolutely necessary for beginning at art and getting rid of symbol drawing. You basically need it if you want an easy way to even see what it is you're drawing as a beginner.

from there you move on from it quickly; I wouldn't expect anyone to do it more than once. Construction can come after.

>>
>>563824
I don't need to. all he does is a strawman of grid work - who the hell would try to memorize the boxes?

again grid ain't for memorizing shit, it's to help you see what it is you are looking at. Prior to the grid babbies don't even know what they are looking at, so they can't into construction or anything else. The grid guarantees they do it right.
>>
>>563824
I'm not going to draw q full strawman guide just to prove an argument on an anonymous image board. But as the other anon said, who the fucj memorizes squares, that makes no sense.

I can say however when I've done grids in the past its helped me understand finer details like how the curves of the skull go. When doing it strictly from construction or observation I tended to simplify it too much. With the grid I used intersection points to understand it.better and it helped out with observation drawing.

Make sure when you shade you keep concious on the areas that will have the ligh fall flat, soft, or be hidden, in order to get the 3d shape across, rather than trying to discover it by throwing low opacity strokes around everywhere without knowing the shape and lighting

Yup, that sure is a tilted picture with bad lighting. You should use your phone's built-in functions to crop any unnecessary bits, resize the image, and change the lighting. People will be able to see it, and it will even reduce the file size.

Oh shit, this is an /ic/ thread, I'm not supposed to compliment your work, I'm supposed to berate you for your chosen style and tell you about how many things don't line up with Michaelangelo's art!
>>
>>565588
Your lines show that you're not used to traditional as some lines look rougher than others. That may be the result of using stability on your tablet.
Lines aside, I'd probably hide her right leg a bit behind her left, because her body is turned at a 40° angle and with her legs turned more towards the viewer looks off to me. It may also be that her shorts make her lower body appear flatter than the rest of her.
Overall good job anon.

All things considered, people who want help shouldn't be asking for it on an anonymous site known for trolls and shitposters, much less a board whose name literally means "doodle."

That's called the internet you fuck face.
4chan is barely more shitpost filled than shit like reddit which is normie central. And at least here people will call your bullshit instead of beating around the Bush like on other art sites.
You get actual shit from anons because they dont have to worry about people unfollowing them. The problem is you also have no evidence of their knowledge. But in terms of all things 4chan isnt that bad in asking for basic help. Especially since your message has equal weight as anyone else and is broadcast to everyone equally. As opposed to someone having to know who you are on twitter.
