Tips for drawing with a mouse?

did this a few years ago with mouse but never finished it (obviously)

drawing without opacity is a good habit to get into but using a mouse is tedious

MediBang is good if you are a total beginner.

Changing opacity while painting is a good way to emulate some of the tablet features. Also use picker to pick adjacent colors and blend them (I do this with tablet too).

Can't remember which shortcut it is but you can draw straight lines with current brush for precise details.

But no matter which media you use, it boils down to a lot of practice and a lot of studies. With it you also learn the tools too.
I am currently using probably the cheapest tablet on the market - EasyPen i405x and it's a big step up from using mouse. So I would recommend buying one.

<--- Some of my studies/sketches painted using mouse.
Just use MS paint famalam

Drawing on physical media I can. Digital's a different beast, however.
What's wrong with hoodies?
Also, do you know what happened after the spider chapter?

Does anyone have a mega link full of folders of people posing in many different ways and angles? I used to have one bookmarked but my bookmarks all got erased. I liked the specific link I had, so if anyone knows which one it is I remember it was mostly females with 3-4 male folders, each were titled with their names. Many of them had tattoos, at least 2 of the females were pregnant, and one folder was a female posing with a child.

but any link with the same models doing tons of poses is fine.

You'll get better results mixing fractal art with romance period paintings that have been ran through the "match color" option in Photoshop, with the target image to match being picture related.
I love this one.
This just reinforces my hate for current "aesthetic" pics and the like. They aren't good anymore.

Not to be rude but isnt sakimi pretty unattractive anyway? I dont see why that would help her
"The" video? There are multiple videos where he mentioned "Oh? You didn't know? Miyazaki is my granddad", so you're either socially inept to believe that this is supposed to be a casual pun instead of a deceitful popularity move, or you're just another retarded sheep who'll suck off any random e-celeb.

Don't be so easily deceived for fucks sake..

Not Chinese, Tran is a common Vietnamese surname. Which would be even worse considering Miyazaki's nationalism.
exactly my point. She is THE most popular fanartist on the internet and she has never done any "self-before-art" marketing as that anon puts it. Same with most other popular artists. So I don't see why that anon would pretend that you had to follow in Ross Tran's footsteps in order to be successful when clearly marketing a personality before art is not needed whatsoever as is evident by all the uggos who don't do it but are even more popular than Ross.
> Miyazaki's nationalism
Source please. He always seemed apolitical.
Not that anon, but, no one is deceived by it because you are probably the only person either stupid or autistic enough to actually consider it as a serious statement, meant to deceive, rather than a dumb running joke.

erm ok

so you left out how much you give a shit about art in general

should i waste my time or get you to pass?

if you just care about passing:

Dark - as opposed to light, this is a triptych, or three part painting. "heaven - earth - hell" are the three parts and paintings that comprise Bosch's painting.

the painting you posted is the hell portion, and depicts what awaits man

first word:
"visceral" meaning one for the senses, vomiting, defecation, gluttony, flesh.

I've been drawing for a bit and have hit a bit of a funk. I feel like my drawings aren't getting better and I can't draw what I want.

I'm hoping some of you might critique my drawings in hopes of moving towards something.

also animal references if you got them

Add dicks.
You'll get a huge following after a few days.
fucking kek, haha
Follow through w/muscle tone & detail. Use various angles & add background. Go outside your comfort zone & try drawing toward your weak points.

Sup fags, I had the idea of a group drawing thread where everyone works from a single ref, these shouldn't be studies, more like quick 10-20 minute drawings. The reason being I happened to notice that watching how other artists solve the same problem helps me to figure out certain issues with my drawings. Like that study thread we had a while back where everyone drew an image of a woman from the side holding a glass orb or something, that was fun and had a lot of replies with actual work.

Proposed rules:

>Initial reference image in OP, followed by OP drawing.
>People draw image in OP and help each other out
>Once a certain number of works is reached (10-15), last poster that posts his work from OP sets a new image.
>Rinse and Repeat

Note, the work you upload doesn't have to be the whole image or soemthing, draw what you are having issues with, the torso, the legs etc. Worst case scenario we have a thread that might motivate people do start the days drawing if they're having trouble starting.

Yes, I know we have draw threads, /beg/ and stuff but people don't always reply, but they do post work, here just posting work would be beneficial as everyone would learn something from others images, no write-up needed (although it is welcomed)

What does /ic/ think? I'll post a ref and my work of it, maybe we can get soemthing going?

Blocking stuff in...
Some rough chicken scratch going on here, definitely try to go for smooth, confident strokes. Maybe work bigger. Also practice gesture so that you can balance figures better.
I like that this is simple and to the point, but like above, she's leaning too far forward.
This is so elegant, a lovely solution to the problem.. she looks like she's falling back, but she does in the photo anyways, but this is a nice exaggeration. The straightened hips and upper arm are nice adjustments that give more stability.
You seem to be hyperexaggerating the gesture and curves, which could be nice, but I feel like you've lost a lot of accuracy and balance. If you focus a bit more on accurate placement, I think it will come together nicely.
A little rough and flat looking, but everything is placed nicely.
I loled.
Super nice, you gon go far. I'd say the midtones are too dark on the first figure.

Head looks okay to me. Maybe it's a bit of an illusion caused by her hairdo being too small. I don't think it matters. If I'm going to get super nitpicky about the head, the chin looks a bit wee.
>What are you doing differently with the hatching this time?
Tried to follow >>3354919 advice and use diamond shape instead of square.
desu I'm seeing all kind of mistakes now, the hips look compresed vertically and kind of destroy the twist, the leg pushes to the left way too much and the right elbow should be at the level of the right nipple, etc.

Does anyone have a good book that works as a refresher when you haven’t drawn for a while?
I like to skim through Vilppu for that purpose
Not a bad idea, and it’s been a while since I’ve read vilppu’s stuff. I’ll do that tomorrow and get a refresher on the basics.

Most caricature artists are getting shit pay to stand out in the summer heat all day to draw families who know they're one of the only vendors in the entire park *not* systematically obligated to scam them out of their money. The image you provided is by no means representative of the majority of caricature artists, but the ones shown there are definitely awful.

I know a fair handful of them. Not all of them are so unhelpful or try to hamfist their dysphoria in everyone else’s faces. I respect the ones who have standards.
Tranny art is still trash though. Same for basically everything that falls under the intersectional umbrella is is hideous. But that’s what happens when you reject the concepts of value; you can’t recognize what’s ugly or beautiful.
People telling me I've got talent.
Especially if it's people close to me that knows that I spend all day every day drawing.

I still bend over and say "thank you". But that shit angers me to no end.

How do I learn to do creative works? Whenever I look at my blank page I can't think of what to draw.

I thought art would be a good form of self expression but I don't know how to express my feelings and emotions onto paper.

learn design
learn comics
Anon, literally anything will do. Have you been thinking about something? You said you were an engineer. What does that make you think of? For me, its bridges, buildings, streets, anything really. Just look up a reference pic of a bridge or something and draw, ok?
learn to draw facial expressions and body languages and work on composition and mood/atmosphere and most of your work is done
As a beginner it's so easy to think of what you wish to draw and who are your role models. I think I forgot those ambitions when I went with the obligatory fundamentals phase. Now I can draw but my head is empty or I don't consider most of my ideas worth drawing.

As for you, stay in touch with your inspirations even through the fundamentals phase.

Not OP but there's nothing I'm passionate about. I was passionate about stories, animated films and comics but the further I delve into the process of creating such things, the more artificial all of the feelings caused by those stories feel.
One way to learn how to be more creative when you draw, is to consume many different types of hobbies and media. Taking a moment to research something as simple as gemstones, or rock formations can fuel your creativity. Trying to visualize a song you like can fuel your creativity and etc.

I've never really sat down and thought about expressing my emotions. I'm always inspired by things other than myself, and I guess my personality slips in there somehow.

So my advice is to not think so hard about expressing yourself, and just find cool things that make you want to draw. In the end, you will probably end up expressing yourself anyway.

How do you use Proko stuff? Do you buy it? Did you buy it? Is it worth buying the 3 Course Bundle pack (Portraits, Anatomy, and Figure Drawing) for the ~$400, or could someone get by on just the anatomy of arms, torso, and legs packs for the $89 each?

If anybody bought that $1500 behemoth, was it worth it?

If you don't pay for Proko stuff, how do you find it? Do you simply use the free, not as detailed YouTube videos he posts? Is there a way to access the premium stuff without paying for it? (I have no problem paying for it, I just only have enough money to get one, maybe two $89 courses and I want to know if I should just save up for the 3-course pack)
I think one of the courses is on cgpeers maybe
