Been seeing a lot of threads like these lately:
>Drawing from imagination isn't real
>Construction/gesture/silhouettes isn't working for me
>Loomis/Vilppu/Hampton don't apply to anime
>I don't know how to construct dynamic poses
>They trace 3D models
>Is chicken scratching really bad
>This tutorial is just draw the fucking owl

I understand these feelings because detailed drawing processes are rarely shared, real time videos are incomplete or too long to sit through, and you can't tell which artist is just copying references out of view. So I'm going through my collection of timelapse videos, mostly saved from Twitter and with an emphasis on drawing, and converting them to webm. Hopefully they'll help you as they've helped me, and feel free to share your collection too.

I appreciate you posting these, but I think beginners should be really careful with seeing these timelapse drawings and trying to copy their processes, because these artists have thousands of hours of internalized knowledge that is with them for the entire drawing process despite never being committed to paper. Things like understanding of volume, appealing gesture, composition, forshortening and so on. I think the most realistic way to look at these is to take a step back and think of them as "one day I might be able to have a drawing process similar to this, but not today," because when you're new you're much better off being extremely explicit with your construction and how you apply the things you know.

(Maybe I'm projecting, but at least that's the way I approach them. Fun and inspirational to watch, but nothing I can make much use of yet.)

Gonna dump some old Kikurage stuff someone shared on here a few years ago.

This is actually a really good application of having a traditional warm color under-painting to finish technique but applied to digital.
>>
what's the best way of making these?
>>
good threat OP but most of these artists are too high level for the /beg/ to change their minds.
As you can see in most of these they've already internalized construction and know how to create interesting shapes while keeping a corrrect perspective.
Good stuff either way.
Could you tell us how they've personally help you?( like is it inspirational or can you ick up certain tricks here and there)
>>
>>4009907
Thanks for posting these, I wish he still posted to his twitter.
>beginners should be really careful with seeing these timelapse drawings and trying to copy their processes
What I like about these timelapses is the fact they can't be copied. One is forced to look at the larger picture, which is that they all utilize construction, silhouettes, and under drawings, and they all follow a process. They also show just enough to show that no trickery is involved, it's just real world application of stuff /ic/ likes to discuss in theory.

It makes me curious to see the layers

Is there a free and easy program anyone can recommend for cutting together these with no experience? I have recorded myself drawing with OBS before and would like to cut the long gaps out
>>
>>4010112
A lot of these are done in Procreate on iPad (you can tell by the sideways "fade" in the beginning), which saves every stroke and action ever made as a frame in a timelapse and lets you export them. Not sure what other drawing software has built-in support for timelapses.

this makes me wonder, since 3rd party devs have a habit of adding things to photoshop from other programs (nezumi for stabilizers, coolrus for a color wheel) how long is it going to take before a dev creates a similar program, where it condenses it into a file that isn't massive. I want that shit right goddamn now
>>
>>4010162
I didn't know it had it built in, that's pretty cool. I imagine it doesn't save pauses which is why there are no lulls
I wonder if going forward all programs will do this and if all artists will share their process, and how that might affect learning for future beginners

Many artists stream or record their screen/windows with OBS, freeware, but it's just raw footage that needs clipped down and sped up on something else
>>
>>4010112
>>4010172
yeah I asked a nip artist and he said he uses procreate for the convenience of recording. The way it records is pretty cool since it only records your actual work process going forward aka per stroke, without any pauses, undos, etc.

In order for it to be recorded in ps or csp in a similar way, it'd have to be built in into the software, or at least a plugin
>>
Does anyone have more of them B&W to color ones?
Preferably with the layers showing

I was going to batch critique a few of these but it turns out they all generally make the same mistakes.
No Gesture, except for fur fags
Background is not thought of until the end
character has no interaction with the environment
Working on a tiny piece at a time and fully developing it
working out from a central location
Working on one character at a time
Coloring one element and not the whole scene.
Only emotions are, "i'm cute, i'm sexy, i'm cool"

Nice thread.
Some of these guys don't care about composition and color even though they draw a figure in a good pose on the first try. Interesting/sad.
>>
>>4011125
Ironically my takeaway from a lot of these is how patient these guys are. They're willing to draw and re-draw until they figure out what they want on the fly which is something I struggle with a lot when it comes to drawing from imagination. Almost every time when I sit down to draw something the bulk of the beginning is just trying to conjure up something that looks appealing right off the bat just so I can maintain interest, a lot of these artists are willing to start off straight grimey with their sketches and go back over and over. It really stresses the value of exercising that imagination muscle more so than grinding fundies.
>>
>>4011288
>They're willing to draw and re-draw until they figure out what they want on the fly
This is how I chose the timelapses I posted. It shows they're truly drawing from imagination rather than reference or recall. They show improvisation.

These also show that drawing from imagination isn't what /ic/ begs think it's about. It isn't getting an image perfectly in your mind's eye or any of that nonsense over cognitive issues. It's about starting loose, iterative drawing, and building towards clarity. It's carving marble out of clouds.

>It's carving marble out of clouds.
that's a good way to put it
>>
>>4011312
Just because they're redrawing something doesn't mean they're not using references off camera. References are just tools. Even a professional mangaka like Hirohiki Araki uses references all the time when making illustrations of characters that he already has years of experience drawing. This is what most professional artists do.

>>
>>4011562
https://video.online-convert.com/convert-to-webm

If the file size is too large you’re going to have to lower the bitrate on the site, 500-700 kbps is a good range depending on how long/large the mp4 is. 4chan has a 3 mb file upload limit
>>
>>4011576
It’s probably the audio channel, make sure to disable it

Loving the thread so far. I have a bunch of (animu) progress footage but the problem is it's in a format where you need to install opencanvas to view. It's quite informative though as you can see the tools they use for every stroke. Would you guys still be interested in this?

Thank you anon, I see now that I do so much unnecessary things in my sketches.
>>
>>4011641
I'm curious, what things that you do do you think are unnecessary? They are probably not as unecessary as you think, just because these seasoned artists skip over some steps doesn't mean you can or should.
>>
>>4010091
Woah, why did the artist do the lineart over and over again? Is this how you get perfect clean lineart?
>>
>>4011288
>>4011312

I understand. I personally have been trying to get the figure right from the first sketch too. I don't like changing the pose, in my case I think it makes the result looks stiff. I stopped the other day to watch some of my timelapses and found myself to be changing good and "alive" gestures into stiff poses that are inside my comfort zone. So now what I think I'm practicing is anatomy out of my comfort zone. See them skillfully changing poses into good ones is encouraging.
>>
>>4011729
This is not necessarily how you do it, but this guy apparently does a sketch of the drawing and then a "sketch" of the lineart. His way of doing it.
>>
>>4009997
I think most of these are from Procreate for the iPad. The app does it automatically.

oh that's kinda normal, they did it a few more times than i've seen before though. Gesture to figure out pose,rough in your lines over it refine make adjustments figure out how it's supposed to go, then do your final line work over that, so you just concentrate on the line, instead of placement.

right? he did like 3 underdrawings then eliminated most of the lines with colour at the end. then darkened it all anyway. nice lines, but damn, learn some efficiency. could have gone straight from underdrawing>lines>cleanup gone into painting. horrible sense of colour and design anyway.
