Random question but if a person were to start art late like 20's would it be impossible to play catch up in skill to if they started a decade before? Grinding daily in mind with each scenario. Doesn't matter what art form. Guess an easier way of saying it would be is it possible to grow faster learning things you could have a decade prior.

Proko's advice to break gestures into C curves, S curves, and I (straight) is something that really resonated with me.

I had a hard time trying to focus on gesture and keep trying to draw contour instead when trying to capture totality but an anon (http://boards.4chan.org/ic/thread/3963218#p3964799) explained to try and capture volume and that will also help capture the meaning.

Anyone have more advice?

You need to learn and get used to the feeling of not looking at your hand, + tablet configuration and screen/tablet size can make the process frustrating.
Gets better but you will feel like a retard first days until you get it.


I would suggest:
> Use "force proportions" on the config
if you don't you will draw a circle in the tablet and an oval will apear on screen, that's cause the screen ratio is different

> Get a tablet of size M at least
the smaller the tablet the shittiest the strokes

> Play around with the pen pressure and settings to work with different size/opacity and try to make it feel natural

> Don't assume you need a shit ton of custom brushes
some pros use the default ones even

So I just started "learning to draw" but in reallity I'm just messing around. My drawings make me laugh since they are so comicly bad that they are almost good again. I'm trying to draw a low effort dragon right now. You know with 2 S shapes as a body and stuff. Takes about 10 sec to do but I can't decide on a head or rather the shape of the head. Could you guys take 10 sec of your day and draw me the lowest effort dragon you can procure?

I liked this one. I definitely must finish it up.. Probably. I don't know, painting feels very differently from drawing, maybe that's why I don't finish most pieces unless I'm really invested.
But I liked the reference for this one, going to /cgl/ was a good idea
>>
>>3965850
i can't think of better advice other than doing still lifes
take some photo, make a sketch and do initial color blocking (like you did on your pic), then zoom in both on your pic and photo and paint over it, that's pretty much it

ok thanks for the direction. you guys are always a lot of help, for real. i will go to sleep and get started on this stuff tomorrow.

embarrassingly, i'd say what i posted took me a good 4-5 total hours, if you include the linework. part of that problem rn is that for some reason my hand kept cramping up, which has never happened to me on traditional. but yeah, i feel like i should be working much much faster than that, i dunno. we'll see as i get more used to the technology

...regardless, all that's besides the point, not trying to make any excuses, just sharing my experience so far. more practice to come soon

>don't shade with black or same color hue
instead use flat colors and cell shading until you go for the advanced method
get a good sense of black and white value, then you can try to go for full color+hue
when shading move the hue to analogous colors and darken

go find about some color theory

First get rid of symbol drawing/ learn to observe then work on geometric and organic forms in perspective at the same time

>>3965700
The fabric is off, which is especially noticeable on the arm and in the slope from tit to back. The fabric on the tit is tight and wrinkles a lot for sexy purposes while the rest of the fabric feels flat. Also, the shading comes off as very superficial with reflected light where it doesn't make sense. Highlights are nice and the shading on the dick is inconsistent with the rest of the body. Light source is dubious.
>>
>>3965700
that's not a multiply brush, is it?
>>
>>3965975
The horn is good but could use more contrast between lights and darks. The eye is a pretty good representation as long as you can get that highlight to be more opaque. Again in the ear you could do better in creating contrast in your shadow and the snout/nose looks deformed.

Good effort, nice line variation anon
>>
>>3965984
Alright I'll see what I can do to add more contrast. I'll try adding more texture in the darker areas with pen as to not add too much black or dark brown. One of the things I'm worried about is having everything look too brown.

Thanks for the advice anon.

There is however a mutliply layer to darken some parts, as well as a overlay layer to lighten some parts, but those are only to bring the contrast out, I make them after I'm done with the actual coloring.

Progress is slow but I think I'm at a point that I can actually believe that it's happening which has given me incentive to continue.

There's still a lot wrong, still don't know how to ear and the cheek/jaw is still giving me trouble but I hope it's a case of just grinding, realising where things don't look right and then figuring out how to make them look right.

Definitely would have helped if I had flipped it at different points and not just at the end. Going to move on from this and grind out some more heads.
>>
>>3965790
Don't worry about them man. I like seeing your stuff.

You're a few gradients above where I am and it gives me hope seeing you keeping at it and improving.

Good on you for moving past construction and adding clothes. You should do it more often.

Also try more head and face types. Develop other characters.

I'm in a position where I'm finally getting one of my characters down and I'm both afraid that I wont be able to draw another character and if I did try that I would suddenly forget how to draw my character that I'm finally getting right. It's odd. Don't get stuck in a rut.

perspective is probably the easiest thing to get an understanding of, since it's by far the most formulaic aspect of drawing
composition is where you'd get stuck

When I say perspective I don't mean simply grabbing a photograph and knowing where the vanishing points go, etc. I mean being able to draw from imagination super complex forms that interpose each other and being able to render in a way that you understand which of those weird forms you've never seen before is far away, whcih one is close, which one is turn side-ways, etc etc, like over here:
>>3966085

Also, pic related. I am currently grinding fundies and studying faces/bodies, I will be a while in that, but if I wanted to do these sort of drawings from imagination what should I practice the most? Is it not advanced perspective? Can one of you niggers that says it's so easy sketch out something like the first pic I quoted real quick?

You guys keep saying it's so easy yet most mangas and comics photobash boring photographed backgrounds, the ones that draw them are squary 2point simple buildings/landscapes.

I just thought of some really nice character design but I’m not good enough to do it justice with my beginner execution
>>
>>3966159
Because those can be misused obviously. Someone can just make a fake account in the artists' name and use said source files to "prove" to others people that he is that artist and thus try to scam people using the artist's identity. Then there is the artists' trade secrets he is using which he would rather not show to the competition to imitate or use for other materials adding some recolors or overpaints.There is more than enough art poaching around the internet already without that. Then they may have more than a single work in one file because it is practical that way and the do not want to share all works those files could also contain notes. Sharing a source file would mea taking a good look about what it contains.
>>
>>3966173
Try it anyways and keep trying make 6 iterations. Character design consists of many steps.
>>
>>3966173

Keep an idea journal with basic sketches so you dont forget anything and you can come back to it when you're better.

is dynamic sketching fine to use if i draw digitally or is there another teaching resource that would be better in this scenario?

What is it? I'll give it a sketch if I find it interesting enough. But I'm still in beg so don't expect much.

>>3966154
>>3966172
Use reference to aid your drawings man, and if you did, then post the reference.

I am a fellow beg but your anatomy seems entirely fucked, nothing really seems right, so it's hard to give critique. If you use multiple references it's gonna look a lot better and it's gonna be easier to help.

Here's sum I worked on after 2 hours of gesture. Really been trying to improve my gesture before I refine the anatomy in my work. Thoughts?
>>
>>3965459
I’ve basically given up on attempting to do linework digitally, why bother when it’s much easier to scan trad drawings and use digital drawing programs for what they’re best for: rendering.
>>
>>3966213
Hampton's all about the energy and flow of the motion, using lines to lead the eye through the pose rather than contour. You've got a good start. My tip for achieving something closer to what he preaches in gesture is focusing first on how things are moving and the perspective lines, if you see something running up draw an upward line. Then identify your C curves and S curves and set those down where you need more clarification. Still, good work anon.
>>
Trying to draw skulls and since the major part of the head is a ovoid form, but is there a way to get that form in perspective so i know i'm building the head right? Since that form doesnt have any corners, i figured i cant use perspective to get it right but wanted to ask just in case.
>>
>>3966227
Thanks for the tips, I'll try to keep them in mind. I think my biggest hurdle at the moment is that I don't really know what to when there are a lot of conflicting gestures. Some gestures are usually fairly easy to find, like going from the thigh to the calf, but in other areas with lots of smaller intersecting shapes I don't really know whether to include them in the gesture drawing or ignore them and go for the overarching simplified motion.
>>
>>3966247
Overarching motion takes precedent, depending on how long you're working you can work into the smaller intersections but the overarching motion should be emphasized further anon
>>
>>3966011
Thanks anon. I'll remember that.

Have you ever dropped your pencil or been careless with it? Outside forces can cause the lead to break apart inside the wood.

Buy better pencils, or even better, get a lead holder.

You are polishing a turd. It looks flat and the line art is boring and no amount of time and effort you put into it is going to salvage it. It doesn't look like it was constructed at all, and if it was you've effectively removed all traces of it. Just scrap that drawing and draw something new.

you can do a lot with just a hb mechanical, id argue you gain specific skills and a good resource control when using just 1 pencil. a lot of loomis is done with just a single pencil. that said i have a full set and its useful for my portrait work.

how do i into proportion
pea brain can only remember that body is 4 lengths of a thigh, and halfway point is vagine
>>
>>3966509
For the body I like to base everything off of the waist and elbow relationship, if both of those have a good relationship the legs will be fine at any length within reason (unless you're deliberately making a character with baby legs). For the head I go by the Loomis rule of thirds, that seems like the most appealing and easy way of understanding it. If you really wanna get in depth with porportion do some atudies on the different bones, if you start out with just the bones in the face you're going to understand a lot better. I literally just found out what the maxilla is and it's helping me put the nose, mouth, and eyes into the correct spots with different angles.

glad to hear youre happy, might i suggest following a bit better construction though? just plan a bit ahead.

-study 3d shapes first, boobs are a balloon for example

-study proportions, mesure shit out
-i dont have a solution but spend more time on your art, really think about each line (its clear i dont, im giving advice im trying to follow)

That's the tendon in the trapezius that connects to the acromion.
>>
>>3966673
Why is it so pronounced compared to the rest of the trapezius? Shouldn't the parts that are connected to the spine of the scapula smooth everything out?

There are like dozens of tendons in the trapezius, right? Can every single one of them pop out on their own like that?

Don't listen to this fucking retard >>3966837 talent isn't real and you can't get there in a month. It's different for every person. The amount of time doesn't matter, what you NEED to do is start RIGHT NOW.

And I mean RIGHT FUCKING NOW. Just think about it like this, in 10 years you can have 10 years of experience drawing every single fucking day, or in 10 years you can complain that you didn't start earlier. Just start right fucking now.

You're never too old to start. In fact, since you're older, you'll be more mature and have a better understanding of what you personally need to do to become better. You won't have a retarded ego that gets in the way and makes excuses. You'll know you suck and you'll want to get better. I know people who started when they were 15 and are still shit at your age.

I'm the person who posted that and this is awesome! I would set a goal like drawing at least an hour a day, then increase that to two and so on. As for what I recommend, while it's very boring to start, I highly recommend drawabox:
https://drawabox.com/lesson/0
ESPECIALLY this Lesson 1 section about mark making and drawing decent lines.
https://drawabox.com/lesson/1

When you first start, it's really tempting to "chicken scratch" out little lines in order to make one longer line (like you are doing in your first drawings), but it's a lot better to just get used to drawing from the shoulder and making one quick and smooth stroke, focusing on the strong having good flow instead of good accuracy. It took me like 60 days of drawing before I discovered DrawaBox and my lines became near instantly better. (Pic related) I wish I would have known about it at the beginning.

I highly recommend it. Even just the first Lesson about drawing good lines. You don't have to do the whole thing to begin with, because Drawing Boxes is REALLY boring. I would recommend spending SOME of your time on "improving" and some of your time on drawing what you actually enjoy, otherwise, you'll get burned out fast but be sure to draw EVERY FUCKING DAY. I'm on day 170+ or so right now of drawing every single day and I am a lot better. Looking back at these old drawings for examples was fun.

The only time I used mark crilley was literally when his book first came out 7 years ago but I haven’t been able to get it out of my head despite studying from way better sources, I don’t know what to do, I hate the way I draw default faces but it hasn’t changed despite how much I try in 7 years

Much better. I think your robot's shape is a bit too complex to render for a beginner though, some parts will have cast shadow on the bot itself if your lighning is from top right.

For starters, the lack of shading can make even good drawings feel flat, really. Defining those shadows is a big part of the 3D feeling, though yours isn't completely flat.
The hand of the pocket could be easily fixed by having the thumb outside, that's how people actually put their hands inside short pockets, and make the pocket bulge since there's a hand inside (just indicate it with a few lines).

Also the neck can't be there. Pay attention, it isn't coming out of the center,it looks like her neck is located in her left side. Ironically the other line you put there is a perfect place for the neck.
>>
>>3966971

I didnt even start to shade or render yet, just added a base. I ment the pose felt flat to me.

The thumb i was looking at reference, but my antomy of the hand just feels off. I need to redo the lineart.

The neck i didnt notice tho, thanks dude

don't take my /beg/ word for it, but i assume this is why it looks flat
also other issues:
neck-shoulder-collarbone area is a huge mess, i can't make any sense out of it
pinky and ring finger on right hand bend the wrong way (should be more towards center of the palm)
left palm is really short, you should not able to see fingers
cap's bill is pointing the wrong way
left horn is pointing the wrong way and doesn't grow out of her head (i assume it's not part of the cap)

Maybe my color choices made this a bit more boring than it should be... she has a colorful, overdesigned dress, but I just like using blue hues since it's supposed to be a graveyard with horror stuff.

Anyway this is my current best drawing, it'll take some time to break this limit.

Ref here.. wait a second, it looks like she's being hypnotized by the lollipop, since it stands out so much.
That wasn't how I intended it when I drew it, she was supposed to be having casual fun at the graveyard with zombies, but I'll take it.
It's way darker that way, it even made me reconsider sharing it to my FB friends since they'll be like

Everything is off. Draw on lineless paper and stop taking shortcuts: you didn't draw hands for a good reason it seems. At the level you're currently at you should draw bigger, stop symbol and actually do studies instead of taking references.

Measuring. It's worked for artists for hundreds of years.

Just learn to observe better and keep correcting it but trying to be perfect to every last detail is a waste of time desu. Why try to copy someone’s likeness exactly when you can just take a picture. Learning design is a better use of time

What do you mean with drawing bigger and stopping with symbol?

why do you even think were the same person? noe tht i look at it i didnt even post art. in fact my only advice was about how to study
>>
>>3967106
Stop symbol drawing. You're drawing what your brain thinks what the thing looks like instead of actually drawing what's there.
>>
>>3967099
Use positive/negative space to see the shapes better, use plumb lines to test the accuracy, use a mid size shape and use it to measure proportion with the other ones, check the angles of the shapes/lines are the same


>>3967106
> (not that guy but i'll answer anyway)
Drawing small is a result of being intimidated of a big canvas/paper space, you think big errors are more evident and go small

Symbol drawing is when you don't actually draw what you see, you replace it with an icon/idea you already had in your head

Because portraits are all about capturing a likeness idiot. And to do that, everything has to be proportionally correct even if you draw them in an expressive style. Its not a waste of time when you can literally build a very successful career out of creating portraits as many artists have done.

Use the sight-size technique to make sure you lay down the proportions accurately like John Singer Sargent did. This doesn't mean you're not also "designing" your drawing.

Who’s making a career out of doing exact portraits without stylizing them? Unless you’re going for realism or hyperrealism, focusing on making your portraits perfect is a waste of time you could spend working on anatomy or rendering

Somehow you became a professional at coloring before mastering the rest, though you're not that far off. The face is almost correct really, it's just a matter of messing with it for 5 minutes. There should be 1 eye of distance between the eyes and the jaw can't be that straight and pointy and you're set to do Visual Novels

Shiny rendering distracts beginner and non artists from the shitty sketches underneath. It doesn’t that long to learn rendering. I watched a few vids and play around with color and I can make stuff that looks shiny decent. Focus on making your drawing skills decent and rendering will take less than a month to be good at.
