What do you think of my abstract drawing?
28 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Should explain, I work with two year olds so I had that kind of in mind. This picture was drawn by one of the kids and I really enjoy it
Mines not fully random, the shapes and where to place them are consciously executed, I have composition in mind.

>>4084248 this looks like garbage, I'm tired of this idea that a child can make Abex, its not true, since kids can't grasp the concept of color theory, they don't know what colors look good together neither composition or what looks appealing, sure you can smudge a bunch of color onto paper randomly but it looks like shit.
i mean, saying it's random just sounds very dehumanising is all. it might be down to whim or a passion in the moment rather than abstract rules, but that isn't random.
when >>4084789 say that children don't understand colour theory, I think this kind of hits the heart of the matter when you might want to disregard children's art.

in the end i was mostly shitposting.
also this kid's drawing looks better than the one in the op so don't be a caustic little bitch.
This is the stuff of gods. Not the shitty (beg)inner artwork that you see in my pic related

autodesk sketchbook doesn't have a fucking eraser shortcut. the most fucking important tool and it doesn't have a fucking shortcut, I'm close to a fucking mental breakdown

It is. I have no idea why OP uses it.
I tried but eraser is not listed on the hotkeys menu. You can't add new hotkeys, just change existing ones. Sketchbook is piece of overrated garbage. Guess I'm gonna stick to Photoshop and CSP.
Well, I've learned my lesson.

Do you rotate the paper as you draw?
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I rotate my kamvas pro 13 at 45 degrees and then rotate my canvas at 45 degrees in the opposite direction. the diagonal is the longest so I can view and draw the longest lines like that, and it gives me enough space around the kamvas to hug it
No. I climb on a stool while painting on an easel and dangle from a custom made swing that I had built in my studio so that I'm at the perfect angle to draw a straight line 2 inches across.

Jesus fucking christ this board.
Why should I? What's the point?
>not launching into space each time you have to paint something, so you can do so without being disturbed by gravity
its like you dont wanna make it bro
dumb arse. rotating paper is not beg. no rules just tools.

>You still give your bodies too much of a thigh gap
big gap between the legs?
yea i need to fix that unless you mean something else. i'm brainlet when it comes to learning from words alone
>knee caps are a bit too high of the lower legs are too long
fixing that right now. i see it myself now and will be working more on legs.

if we fix that is that drawing at least passable or ok?. i wanna know if i'm going to correct way and not wasting time
Not the anon that redlined you but wtf man, don't get discouraged so easily that's a solid piece. You just needed to re-position literally 2 lines; the necklines. The head and body were in a correct enough position. Now you just start applying features and maybe even draw the background and color.
You seriously can't let yourself be stopped this early into a drawing or else you'll never start practicing the other stuff. For example that figure is decent, but maybe once you start trying to draw a face or clothes you find out you suck and start asking for tips here, that'd be helpful for your progress.

Of course this is not to say sometimes it's better to just scrap a drawing and start over something else, I literally just did that a few minutes ago. But that's because I didn't have a clear picture of what I wanted to do.
You drew a girl sitting on a ledge already so I'm guessing you have a picture in your mind of what you want to create, try to finish that.
Thanks for this. The big post I got felt like it was a lost cause. From what I read it seemed like the body was completely fucked and needed to revamped. I completely overthought it.
I mean even if it were, you're not supposed to become an Old Master at figure drawing before you move on to the rest. You'd be drawing mannequins for a year or two if that was a requirement.
yeah, i understand now. shits just so easy to overwhelm you. i do have a clear idea in my head for the piece but was just worried it was a flop before it was even started. we'll see what happens. ganbatte!

Has anyone bought any of this bitch's stuff from gumroad? I'm curious about his process, but idk about shelling out 15 bucks for something that has a good chance of being poorly produced gumroad crap.

Gonna post some of his art in the meantime.

You must be one of those grinding endlessly, terrified of finishing a single piece.
Go back to church.
/beg/ here, maybe it's just me but something seems off here. On the guy, the abdomen go way too high, there is no ribcage, and the bicep doesn't seem properly attached to the shoulder muscles. It goes into the arm pit.

A better question to ask is "what isn't wrong in this picture?. The anatomy is fucked, no pun intended. His illustrations are all rendering (which he is great at) and dick, pussy, tits and semen.

**Don’t aimlessly study the fundamentals or anime. Learn the fundamentals (form, values, color, composition, etc.) through properly copying anime.**

How to study anime/get better at imagination drawing/obtain a style/etc.:
>Find an anime reference you like (an illustration, screenshot, anime figure, 3D model, etc.)
>Find learning material that will help you reconstruct your ref using simpler fundamental elements
>Trace the ref using that construction
>Copy the ref using that construction
>Draw the ref from memory that using construction
>Repeat the process for the same ref multiple times and mix in other refs
>After studying a lot of refs, drawing from your head will become easier

**Focus on Tracing/Copying/Memory drawing the big shapes/values/elements first then later worry about the finer details. Focus on only a portion of a complex ref first then move on to studying the full ref.**

How do you guys organize your supplies/paper/projects? How long have you been doing it that way? I just have stuff strewn about my desk and I'm planning on buying a larger desk and plastic drawers and a bookshelf, is that what everyone else uses?
Depends on how you want to organize your stuff. But that sounds like a start.
Since I don't have much room in my room, I hide a lot of stuff in plastic containers under my bed and or closet. Specially with larger canvases but I wasn't careful how I kept them and some how I poked a hole through two of my canvases.

Look at the K and tell me that is great
It can look really good, but often it doesn’t. It takes practice and talent like anything else.
Its all about ego and not getting better for the most part. i still appreciate tags and throws when i see them tho.
i dont get why people hate graffiti, i think its just a very good looking urban art for
>i dont get why people hate graffiti
Live in a place full of monuments and other nice things with historical value and you will understand why people hate taggers

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

Any tips? Been grinding books for a long time (embarassed to even mention how long) and I tried to come back to drawing from imagination. It's been kind of tough and not as good as I expected. Any tips?
oh no, someone has a politic that you don't like, guess it must be because they're ... unoriginal.

Try to apply the things you learned from the books to your imaginative works. When something looks off, just return to the text to figure out how to fix it. The most important thing is to be analytical about what you are doing right and wrong.
The drawing you posted would really benefit from stronger construction, especially in the torso.

Draw, create and or post your fursona!

Just curious how many people on here actually draw furries.
And those who claim they want to draw furries. You don't need to have one to be a furry, but I think it helps differentiate your account. Who knows if you have fun drawing it then you might be able to draw others.

Looking for some inspiration for this style. I'm not sure if it's called anything, what I'm looking for is just full illustrations with flat colors/minimum cell shading and detail.

I had a folder full of these but the usb it was on got corrupted.

Since this is being ignored in every thread I post it in, could I get some help with this?

I was thinking of adding candles because I feel like just gray and light blueish green will be kinda boring. Some good warm yellows and oranges would probs spice it up

Honestly, I don't think you need to add yellows and oranges. Try and push the values and then add warm blues and greens, instead of directly adding candles. Keep it up!
