This seems to be a big hurdle for most people, can learning perspective be more fun? Are you good at perspective? How did you learn it?

How did you feel when it "clicked"?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
The ability to draw in perspective is a natural one all humans are born with?

Then why are we such horrible artists?
Learn the fundies. Use 3d for everything compicated.
Perspective is one of the fundies.
is it just me or do those archways look a bit fuckey?
learn perspective by applying it to work you enjoy creating. do you like drawing figures? cool now add boxes to that and show the figure from dynamic angles. do you like drawing sci fi? cool now draw how a spaceship looks from underneath looking up

By copying them. Most how to books are not really meant to be read.
could anyone post a 3/4 view?
I want to practice portraits
I need more good references
real advice: leave this hellhole of a thread and get your learning from books, be self critical of your own art to develop your troubleshooting abilities, half the reason why you people lurk this thread is because you find comfort in people just as shitty as yourself, that mindset is toxic. leave and trust that knowledge from actual professionals combined with consistent mindful practice is better than any words you may obtain from here. later my nigs and safe travels
you can ignore books and watch youtube videos or something, they only show basic concepts anyway

On the realism side, you're either trying to represent an object in space using line and value or not truly seeing what's in front of you and making crude symbols that are as much a representation of the nose in question as the word "nose" is.

This is due to our perceptual system being a very efficient lie, our processing of topology being heuristically based generalizations that are often wrong, and our visuospatial sketchpad being woefully underutilized. We can recognize but not naturally reproduce using those same heuristics. This is especially true of faces which have a large and localized area of the brain, such that anything that looks remotely like a face is recognized as a face, yet likeness is the hardest thing to capture. Instead of what is in front of us, we make garbage because the bot in charge of recall hasn't been trained for reproduction, so you get the same heuristic mistakes you see in distance and location experiments along with zero sense of form or perspective.

This is symbol drawing, mistaking the map for the territory and drawing a map based on that. It has nothing to do with the abbreviation or stylization of realism or cartoon glyphs that are specifically designed to play tricks on the system in a way subservient to design.

How do you even measure proportions with extreme poses and perspectives? How can I plan such a pose on the gesture stage? Is there a way to know how much I should make bodyparts larger or smaller without constructing an elaborate perspective setup?

Pic related
If you treat poses like this, like he's existing within a 3point perspective square, you'll understand more. The thing is the vps are super far off, so that's why the proportions seem more or less normal instead of being severely warped. As for getting the anatomy accurate, I'm not sure there is an exact science behind it. It's more about just making things feel like they flow well with each other (ie, the one hand works because its smaller in relation to both the face and the other hand, so it tricks the viewer into believing there is depth there )

best of luck and be sure to share any results here!

If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.

I think you are going for a static standing on a bike pose, but I get so much direction from the angle shot that I thought, maybe something more aggressive like this?
I dunno how to put the arms though, ha ha, multiple limbs always drive me nuts. But trying to keep them aiding in the direction force.

If you only work in 2d you arent an artist. Real artists push themselves to master multiple styles. The reason most stick to just one medium is fear of failure.

OP is a faggot but sculpting is incredibly important to bridging the mental gap of intuitively understanding 3D form. Droughts men who don’t sculpt are missing an integral component of the mental drawing game.

a true artist is a genius that can create art with anything they touch. You must shed your old medium like a snake and its skin or a hermit crab and its shell or you will never grow.

What's the word on Staedtler synthetics?
For what? The issue with synthetics is that they're a little too rigid and don't hold as much water as natural hair. It's not really that big a deal as long as they point well and the "natural" synthetics are surprisingly good for a few extra dollars. And you don't feel bad about doing fucked up shit to get good textures.

Stop tweening, start hand drawing shit.

Draw the key frames of your loop, then the in-betweens.
>nonsensical movement
What sort of game is this? I remember someone making a similar thread a while back, I'll say the same thing I said to them: movement needs intent. Why is she moving? Your animation makes no sense, have you ever seen anyone move like that for any reason? What sort of character is she? What is her purpose in the game? Basically:
>draw keyframes, don't tween
>make her move for a reason

have her clothes move in the wind, have her adjuest her clothes or hair every now and then, have her blink, these are things that actual people do for real reasons. no one moves like in your animation for any reason.
I fucking hate tweening.
hayao miyazaki was right, the animation industry is saturated with people that don't even know what humans actually look like and just hate people in general.

I can't drawn environments to save my life, /ic/.
I've done a lot of studying with regards to human anatomy, animal anatomy and character development, but I don't have a good grasp on lighting and backgrounds and composition.
How do I practice environments? Do I just do studies of pictures of them like I would a human or animal?
What am I aiming to understand when I study from an image so I can have it as a reference in my head for when I try to create my own landscapes?
