**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the place for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Draw it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

Trying to study Tobe Sunaho.
(A) is mine. (B) is the original. Mistakes I noticed are proportional things, some color/value stuff is a little off, gesture is inferior (lost some of the subtly).
(C) Is a quick tachie-sort-of-thing I whipped up after, trying to apply aspects of the Sunaho approach. I'm not sure why I drew the face like that, usually, I do it a little differently, but I'm more concerned with the body. It looks like fucking shit. My end goal with bodies is to be able draw bodies in that real conventional galge kind of look. Pan is a good example:
I haven't been doing many studies of this kind of thing because I see how much subtlety they pack into the drawing and get discouraged as fuck. "Give it a year or two until you're more comfortable with anatomy" has been kind of my mentality. This is obviously wrong as OP points out. The artist Itiyann (いちやん) pointed out how he just did studies to get so good (and he's only 1 year older than me but he's been so good so long. Fuck everything). And if you look at the progression of his art, he made a complete style out of his anatomy even tho it was very lightweight in the beginning, and, with time, he packed on more subtly.
So, my question is, even when the amount of anatomical/stylistic subtly is blowing my mind, should I just stop being a puss and just dive in, or is there something that can help road map my way thru these amazing artists' paintings?
Academic-oriented anatomy resources (such as Proko and Hampton and Bridgman) I find to be only minimally helpful since they don't help with the most important part: actually getting the style to not be puke. plz help before I start breaking shit.
I want to understand it first, though

>>read loomis
>> got to draw a vox.

Don't get me wrong, it's good advice for absolute beginners, but when op is struggling with specific things like the arm or coloring it's stupid. Or worse when they are struggling with applying what loomis says.

Yet lots of anons seem to think it's great advice...

>>>read loomis
How dare you.
Loomis is the definition of the straight white male art style.
Why would you want to emulate the art of the oppressors?
You may as well be emulating HITLER.
So fuck off, you cishet white fuckboy, unless you're female and/or non-white. which in that case I'm sorry for everything I said against your beautiful person so please express your no-whiteness/femininity safely and proudly <:)
Loomis is good, bridgeman is good, Hogarth is good, life drawing is good, 3D conceptualisation is good, western perspective drawing is good. Combine all of these in your first forays into art and you’ll make unbelievable gains that will apply to pretty much any specialisation of drawing you go into, whether it’s portraits (enjoy your good sense of depth and emotion), concept art (enjoy your convincing and exciting 3D images) or stylisation (enjoy your shorthand versions of the human body because you know exactly what you can leave out and get away with, and how the body works)
>Loomis man bad
If someone claims to have read loomis but can't even draw with basic tridimensional shapes, there is no advise you could give him. Anything an anon could say it's already better explained in the book.
More often than not it's just faggots not actually reading or practicing and coming here wanting other anons to spoon feed them fundamentals.
I'm not gonna waste my time explaining how vanishing points or ellipses work to a faggot that claims to have read Scott Robertson.

Think for yourself for once.
Whats her instagram? Shes pretty.
Actually it would greatly help the dude with the arm problems to draw boxes.

Finally I know you are a retarded "just copy manga" loser, but Loomis has a book for anatomy and another book for color and composition. So read Loomis reaches a bit more than just drawing boxes. Next time actually read the books, not just look at the pictures and you will realize that read Loomis means "you are struggling with fundamentals, why don you take some time to actually practice isolated fundies? Oh those Loomis books actually feature material of said fundamentals, try reading them pal!"

Of course its too much to ask to retards like you

is it better to start selling prints right away or should i wait until i have a decent following. Currently i have about 300 on ig, so i think no one would care atm if i put any of them out.

draw/paint almost everyday
be interested in art
have fun in creating art
This hits it dead on the nail

You have to be a businesman, provide a unique product that is worth money, have a brand and know what it's worth, sell it
Be absolutely shameless
anyone whoever made a fortune with art did one or all of those things
have no shame
draw all the popular shit
take commissions (nsfw included)
Be third worlder with internet connections. One cheap commissions could feed me for one or two weeks here.

Ive always seemed to have e very good understanding of psychology and how the human mind works, and im always talking people through thier issues. I think im pretty decent at art, and i could make it if i really busted my ass; but this could be another option and i was wondering if anyone here has ever tried it.
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I tried art therapy for a couple of weeks while getting treatment for anxiety. I would say go to it if you want to meet new people but dont expect it to improve your art skills. It's a place for people to chat, doing art is just an excuse.
its always funny hearing someone whose never had the therapy experience telling other people what its like.

therapists don't tell you to do anything, they give you a space to air your thoughts, they may give you an alternate point of view you didn't think of, they may not say anything.

as for your problems
okay they don't magically disappear. well how are you going to live with that? that must be a difficult way to live? you obviously have some problems otherwise you wouldn't be so negative towards this thread.

yes I agree, its not an art class. but doing things around other people who are doing the same thing can have a benefit I think. as apposed to sitting doing it alone.
Well if you have a caring friend that wants to listen to you then there is no need for therapy imo, but therapy is sort of a supplement if you don't have that. Maybe try journaling at least, I think most of therapy is just getting your thoughts in order. so maybe meditation too.
thanks for sharing.
its cool; i wouldnt mind art not totally being the focus. I like talking people through thier issues and uplifting them and solving thier problems too.
Nah, i wasnt trying to improve my art, I was worried about not being able to just make it through my art alone and thinking about my other options. Again im not horrible rn and if i go to school for like illustration i could see myself being good, but id like to keep my options open.
nothing wrong with that, ive seen a therapist myself, only thing i got out of it was that now im content with being foreveralone
only problem is it costs $$$ and insurance doesnt cover that

Jesus christ this was me in less than 1 year, too bad I'm stuck at tumbler tier
This, you know is full of /pol/ and /r9k/ larpers when these asoteric advices start appearing.
You don't need to just work and study like everyone else, no, anon has this simple contraintuitive advice that will make you better than anyone else in just two steps.
Lazy people are always looking for cheatcodes instead of actually putting in the work, whether it is not drawing anime for years or not masturbating, or not drinking onions based products, or being an autistic asshole on tinder, all of these advices are signs of shut-in spergs taking over a board. And they will always fall for these memes because they sound easier and simpler than just working on yourself.
Have been on this board since 2013. I'm literally a forefather.
if you want to shill hentai is limitless
Yeah, we had retards since forever, but they being taken seriously and their retardation being spread like memes is the problem I'm talking about.
Also, everyone is an oldfag, if you ask /pol/ they will all swear they are not redditors that got in from r/the_donald.

The last few threads have been pretty good. Consider searching them.

I just got a box of pic related and they're amazing. I mostly use dip and fountain pens, but fineliners work better at steeper angles and I love sketching with them. The nib is about the size of a 01 Pigma Micron, and it's incredibly stiff. If it holds up (and it feels like it hasn't worn at all after 3 pages) this is a great pen for $10 a dozen. The ink is water soluble and makes a cool blue/purpleish wash with a waterbrush. I'm definitely trying the original Razor Points next.

What's the best method for mixing flesh tones in watercolor?
How do I clean nibs? Phil's Black Magic ink dries super fast and it hardens on the nib even as I draw, when I get to cleaning I have to scratch it off with my nail.

Also is using nibs on tracing paper okay? I keep getting fibres on my tip but idk I might be pushing too hard
you just get a pipette and add a drop of ink to the water in the brush.
you want darker add 2 drops.
I have no experience in this but maybe keep a little dip of IPA alcohol. and wipe with tissue.
Skin is seldom the local color, it's all about getting the values right.

For old school realism, I like working around burnt and raw sienna, venetian red, and ultramarine blue and tend to avoid bright yellows as they stain under the earth tones and make everyone jaundiced and asian. Really light touches of venetian red as a base coat make for a nicely ruddy complexion.

I usually mix something that's going to be the mid tone for the overall color temperature and lay it on slightly more saturated than a baked potato, sometimes blocking in color zones of the face and major shadows if theyre a very different color reflected from somewhere, then tint in highlights and shadows in comparatively more garish hues. Whether you start wet on wet to wet on dry or the other way around when blocking in features is up to you.
