Yep, legs too short.

Not sure what you mean by the silhouette. Do you mean that the arms are kinda behind the thighs?

Body is of course better but hat is shit because it's too high and flat, it's just a circle

Now it's perfect
op here.
lol I was gonna do that, but then it got out of hand. I only like the 2016 one because he drew the hat right. The 2017 one hat is so wrong that it stands out more, and makes the piece look horrible.

After drawing stuff from beginner thread for a month my eyes have improved a bit and all that passive shit. But I still can't draw a simple face, what was the point again? Sure, I can measure stuff better but it's pointless if I can't do anything on my own.

What do now? How do I start real learning?
keep doing what you are doing. the practices and studies but start doing your own shit from imagination. or do half and half. do your own shit from imagination but then fix it up using reference. Or find a image you like and change bits and pieces like the arm or leg placements and reference just the parts you changed. Your imagination work will look a lot shittier than your referenced work but that's how you'll get better. by drawing and discarding all that shit.
Can't remember what minute specifically that was, but i recommend you watching it all or using as a podcast. They talk alot about the specific problem you brought
Takes more than a month hombre

Being around people drains my energy very quickly. I'm scared that if there's no one 'safe' with me, I'll be unable to escape and rest, and I'll keep smiling and chatting until I throw up from exhaustion. I don't think it's impossible for me to take this challenge and survive it, but there's a lot of added difficulty here (career-related event, place I'm not familiar with, money wasted if I chicken out etc etc)... I feel tempted, but my common sense reminds me that I'm too terrified to organize a local drawing meet-up despite the fact that I wouldn't have to pay anything and that I could get ALL my friends to come with me.
I'll be your friend and go with you and we can get a hotel room together and cuddle up in the same bed in fetal position.
The speakers were nowhere to be seen for most of it last year, except for the good guy speakers who had mentorship groups. But a lot of them I assume were just chilling at the hotel for most of it.
t-thanks anon
How are you guys able to afford this? I feel like it's necessary to go to one of these to get the contracts, but how..? It's a lot of money

"Practice on paper before moving to digital" why? Why draw on paper? I've got a cintiq, and a note 10.1 and while I suck at drawing, why should I waste paper when I can draw on my tablet while outside?

title says all, find more of my shit to criticize here:
well my first criticism is that I don't get the joke of the comic, and I can't tell if it's racist or not
i assume you remember video stores having a porch monkey section in them?
Few places where the words crunch together, making it hard to read. May be worthwhile to push hatman's expression a bit further towards sardonic in panel 2.

Writing overall could use a bump in quality. I get the joke, but the delivery falls flat. Then again, who the fuck am I? No one, that's who.

How do I draw like this?

Where do artists usually upload their PSD to? dropbox? and did they manually send it to their patrons or just by link?
Except thats maybe %3 of all artists. If you're doing art to try and get famous or rich you will be sorely disappointed
They meant that it is free for the artist doing the patreon because the artist does not have to do any special editing or anything. They just upload their ordinary work straight to patreon.
where do you get that number? hobbyist artists i wouldn't count, since many are literally children. they have no interest in making art into their job or taking steps to even apply to companies like game dev, advertisement, and etc.

>You sound like one of those guys that are constantly in study mode.

>implying this is a bad thing

literally every great artist autistically studies everything that interests them.
It's a bad thing if you just study and never do any creative work. A lot of guys too will focus on "the grind" and just do mindless copies as their "studying".
And yet you aren't learning anything right now, you aren't doing life drawings and you aren't doing movie screen studies that this thread is about, you just came here to derail this thread with your shitposting.

This is a bit weaker than your usual stuff, Mike. I feel like the conceptual potential is there but the execution just could have been better. One thing to keep in mind is feminine proportions too, she's a bit top heavy with a shoulder to waist ratio more like a man-bot than a femme-bot.

hmmmm that makes sense, i was trying to capture the idea of a skeleton in a machine, but i see where the idea did'nt really catch, so you think maybe thinning out the character a bit would have helped?
Draw a giant turd next to his ass lmao
I'm not sure what it is man. Yeah if the idea was a skeleton in a machine I don't think it reads terribly well. Not enough of the skeleton is showing nor is it detailed enough to really articulate that it's a skeleton, and in the case of the most prominent portion of the skeleton showing in the neck and spine it doesn't really look anatomically correct enough-it really just looks like weird wires or something. Ah well!

I like this one

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings. Most importantly, have fun!

Mom bought me a bunch of pens for xmas, where the fuck do I start?

I've only ever used the micron and brush pen...

I'm partial to training on the dip pen
Obviously the Japanese ones, come on anon
So far I have a Facebook page called "KT sharp is learning H"
Damn, I'm so jealous anon. You're fearless and actually draw anime so well. You look like you love to experiment and have fun even if the times get hard. There's so many drawings, much more than I ever finish in a week. It fills me with something, like perhaps that I can do it as well if you can. I wonder, anon, why do you draw?

Also one funny thing I noticed was how you have a ton of figures, an old television and yet you don't have a tablet to draw digitally.
