How do you deal with noticing things you never used to notice before drawing? Such as you start drawing a model and then realize she has a huuuuuuge... nose.

First approach it from a technical objective angle and dont let subjectiveness overrule it, meaning when you notice that she has a huge nose, you will tend to draw it even bigger to reproduce the same feel of suprised largness of the nose to make it "equal" to the moment you noticed it while it is not.
Second understand that with drawing outlines, things tend to be a bit overrepresented, step carefully where there should be outlines and how thick they should be.

And one last thing: It will fuck with you for the rest of your artist life, you stop just seeing stuff and start actually seeing stuff, you will hate it, you will notice way more errors in drawings and paintings. It is specially painful since you tend to learn faster in that regard than in your drawing skills. It kinda sucks but is essential in becoming better.

Isn't that good? As artists we should inject feeling not capturing something, if we wanted to straight up copy we'd take a photograph. But some things can't be captured like how the giant hose makes you feel.

She was my favorite model and now I can't stop thinking about the size of her nose ffs, it's fucking huge!

>Isn't that good? As artists we should inject feeling not capturing something
Depends on what you are trying to do. When learning i rather would tend to stick to reproducing, since it is a direct process of making what you want in a certain way while being easily checkable with the original. Having good ideas aint worth much if you cant do exactly what you want to do, you end up living on waiting happy accidents to happen.

>She was my favorite model and now I can't stop thinking about the size of her nose ffs, it's fucking huge!
It is part of the process, dont let yourself get discouraged so much by it. And yeah, it sucks man.

When the pencil hits the paper the paper turns to the pencil. This applies to everything! Shading is obvious as well if you take it unto that context or in. New work is always your best.
>>
>>3859062
is this a parody of someone?
>>
>>3859062
recently I've been thinking the same,if you focus on drawing with the paper and not the pencil it helps you control your lines easier. It's like focusing on pushing the earth down when you do pushups instead of pushing yourself off the ground. It's a mental trick.

How to Draw is a great book, but it is such a bad book for beginner perspective, breezing over the beginner concepts. I tried to read it when I first started and was confused out of my mind with the lack of examples/explanation for everything.
>>3855146
-Norling's perspective made easy.
-How to draw manga vol.29 putting things into perspective.
-David Chelsea's Perspective! for Comic Book Artists.
Read those 3 books(and more if necessary), that's what helped me get the basics really quickly, seeing those 3 different books explain the same concepts differently. Past that handprint and erik olson, for a deeper understanding, erik will explain to you everything thoroughly like you're a baby (note: for art you don't need anything on projection nor is it useful, just difficult and a waste of time). Scott robertson as a drawing exercise book, and he also a lot of useful information outside of perspective drawing, workflow, concepting, tools, atleast worth a read.

I got a chance to try Thanka paintings in new Tibet once. Thanka paintings are commissioned by someone who wants to improve themselves, such as being more caring, respectful, have a greater work ethic, etc. These paintings thus need to have perfect proportions, as you are supposed to be learning from the deity and finding ways to improve yourself when you meditate to the painting.

Nose looks a tad too long but otherwise pretty good! Make your shadow darker and don't forget to squint your eyes when dealing with value. When I squint at the reference I don't see any variations in the shadow area while on yours it's noisy.

you could always hide behind absurdism and tell everyone you drew the wobbly lines on purpose

I used to do a ton of cross hatching when I was younger. Somehow, I didn't have internal bleeding afterwards. The worst thing is that some people today tell me I should do it because it looked nice.
I'd prefer to an hero before doing that shit for 10 minutes. Fuck that.
I also think that it usually look ugly and terribly inorganic.

I'd trace contours and do hatching by myself. Tracing every hatch is insane.

Yeah I know Dore's work is engraved, but so are the earlier examples posted. engraving is just a way to mass produce art. The art techniques used to make these illustrations is the same regardless of medium, it's just ink rendering with contour and cross contour lines. That was the piont

I get in massively frustrating pits trying to draw from reference or imagination but how much of a bad idea is it to simply copy things for a "while"? I don't mean overlay or tracing but simply repainting finished art and other objects as closely as I can.

Do you ever get stuck in a hole?

Two days ago, I was really feeling it. I was thinking and drawing in 3D, and proud of my progress. But yesterday and today, I feel like I've regressed to simple symbols and not observation. Suddenly I sucked like, more than usual. Lost a lot of motivation but kept at it to get good.

How do you get out of the rut, and what helps you get better fast?

Just draw, nothing else to it. Literally everyone goes through the same issue of feeling like they've gotten worse, when in reality it means you've improved to be able to notice that something isn't right with your art.

Get out of your comfort zones, just because something "feels" right doesn't mean it is. Best way to get out of symbols is to trace from better artist, and actually trace instead of going half-way and then inject your own "feels right" symbols.
>>
>>3858999
It's OK anon. It happens to the best of us. If it's really unbearable, take a break for one day. Just don't draw, and do some analysis instead, watch a good movie or look at a picture book. Time you use for analysis is not time wasted, and sometimes a little break can be good.

miura's pre-digital stuff is a great example of this
still obviously manga, but generally speaking it's far more grounded and fleshed out than the average shonen jump series for example
his coloured pieces also have a bit of a pulpy feel to them, not as noticeable here but if you have a look at the coloured pieces included with volumes you'll see what i mean
