Personally I've tried to use >>2722148 and it doesn't work well for me because my paper is usually flat on my desk. I prefer overhand. I use it for my sketching and then for details I use the traditional way.

Don't worry about 'losing' your progress. Your work will be shittier while you get used to it but you won't lose your knowledge. It'll take some time to get used to but don't consider it backwards progress.

Let's work on our perspective, We can add perspective to anything. And we should. I suggest everyone use this grid to create anything. A scene, boxes, whatever. It doesn't matter, get used to this. People tend to jump into freehand like retards. Get used to this. Hell make you're own idc.

Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.

AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

Who ever wrote that review missed the point.
Is this what drawing is though? I want to draw from my imagination, but I understand I want to learn the fundamentals. I don't know what I need anymore or what my end game is.
You just need the fundamentals. No one knows their end game right off the bat. Just read all the books that involve fundamentals and you can't go wrong with them until you get to construction in which you can go wrong actually.
Alright then anon. Thanks. I hope to become decent for my waifu.

Eh, brahz. So I drew this pic a while ago on my phone as I was listening to some songs that made me think of a fishing trip I went on a while back, and I was trying to capture the feeling I had during that trip. I felt this hint of isolation while viewing the beauty of being in the middle of... Idk what it's called. Maybe the ocean I guess since it was connected to it even though there was some land and stuff. Anyways, the pic was supposed to convey a hint of sadness, but just this weird feeling of freedom and isolation from the rest of the world. I was wondering if I did a good enough job and what I could improve on. I know it's not the best, so that's why I'm here. I think maybe it doesn't have enough context or something maybe. What do you think?

I redrew the whole thing after finding an image I took that day that looked almost exactly where my mind was when I drew that picture. I realized I forgot to add a reflection, so I added that of course. I was trying to give it a more open feel, so I didn't add the other hills in the background. I traced the main hill thing just so I would get it right and make it more believable. I just noticed that I drew it a little too light because my screen was too dark, but it wasn't too dark of a day, just the memory of it was if that even makes sense. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the song I was listening to was "La Femme Chinoise (After Service Version)" by Yellow Magic Orchestra.

back in school i had always been the kid that was into drawing (cartoonish things) and i was pretty good at it, at least when it came to expressing emotions.
for some reason i just kinda stopped drawing almost altogether in my early 20s, so i never really improved past a certain point (i'm 28 now).
i've been watching tons of tutorials about techniques, photoshop tips, etc. just because it still interests me and today i finally picked up a pen again and drew something (i had done so several times in the past, but mostly quick doodles that i deleted right away)
this crap took me several hours (a lot of that is photoshop lagging like crazy for some reason) and, looking at it, i can tell it's shit simply from a technical point of view. the outline looks like it was drawn with a pencil and so do the shadowy parts, but then the lighter parts are this ugly mid-2000s gradient colors and i'm not even gonna get into the incredibly lazy surroundings/backgrounds because that was just me being fed up with every click taking up to 20 seconds to register

anyway, have any of you ever been in a similar situation? always super into drawing and then just kinda lost touch and had a hard time getting back into it because you didn't really know where or how to start?
how did you overcome it?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
i was more interested in the psychological side, not the hard skills which you can acquire anywhere on the internet
You're just lazy.
that's my theory, too
was kinda hoping i was wrong and that there was an easier way to overcome it, but i guess that just confirms it

I'm in a similar situation, pretty much the same story. I loved to draw throughout my teens, in my early 20's I pretty much stopped. I wanted to get into concept art and professional illustration so I had really high standards that I never lived up to. That, plus the usual early adulthood anxieties got the better of me. It just sucked donkey balls to sit down with a blank canvas and constantly judge whatever I drew.

I am 28 now as well, recently earned myself a bit of spending money, and for some reason I felt inspired to take up drawing again and buy some digital tools. I feel like I've outgrown the past baggage with life experience and am more patient and less judgmental with myself. So I find art more fun than ever before. I just accept that I'm really rusty and try to put as much hard work into it as possible, study as much as I can. It feels more meaningful than wasting time watching series, playing video games or getting drunk. There's no best-before date on practicing something you love. It's a great outlet and I don't really think about it more than that, it comes automatically.
Get a sketchbook and draw when ever you feel like it, And when you've gotten a feel for it, draw in it every day.

Check it out I was on public access. They interviewed me about my drawings and shit and I was stoned as tits. then the lady who interviewed me bought a print off me for 30 bucks. I much rather would have fucked her face. Anyways, Fuck you dad. Am I a real artist now?

Apply this to 4chan and look at your post

Because there's no reason to keep cluttering up the Beginner Threads with our shit.

I have nothing to show because I have been working and not practicing because I am stupid ;_;
