I'm about to start the NMA Russian Drawing course, and they mention wood panels to stretch the canvas over. Are they something that is reusable, like once my first canvas is fully used I can remove it and use the panel again, or is it supposed to be a one-canvas-per-panel thing?

He wets it in the course, then stretches it on the panel and demonstrates how he does it. If OP watched more than the first 15 minutes he would know this.
As someone who has made dozens of these blanchets or planchettes or whatever the fuck they call them I can tell you it's a massive waste of time, you will fuck up making them a lot, and it's basically just russian autism, the rest of the world moved on after bulldog clips were invented
Even without clips it is a waste of time.
>Drawing course
>wood panels to stretch the canvas
Canvas are generally used for painting, not drawing.

Don't bother stretching *paper* if you're just starting. This is a cool thing to do, it allows you to use watercolor to tone the paper, and it's pleasant to use a tight surface, but that's for when you're more advanced, when you start to actually do things that you could sell.

Just use drawing paper and graphite at first. Unless you're finely rendering, use big sheets of paper, they'll make your life easier. Russian do have a looser approach to rendering that your typical Western, Bargue-based atelier, so it's more suitable.

Its essentially an overhand grip but he is doing it vertically, its very easy to go from hard line to pointy, and because you are using it to shade more than just draw a line, this grip keeps a pencic sharp longer than a norman grip, its also easier to change how much you shade an area this way compared to a writing grip.

Perspective made easy. Loomis' figure drawing expects you to have at least a basic understanding of perspective, see pages 45-49.
Yeah, they should be obsessed with draw a box, instead.

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.

buy 1$ Skyist pen set and see if you like it. if you like then upgrade to Tachikawa or Zebra G nib, never buy Nikko or Nikko-Tachikawa nibs.
for ink, kuretake black ink is the best quality for it's price. you can try cheap Indian ink as well.

Guys, I think I've cracked the code to get engagement depending on your technical skill level. I've made a graph mapping out different emotions and their social value compared to how difficult they are to convey. Obviously, this is only for artists who want a following and maybe a career. If you're just drawing for yourself, feel free to disregard this.

>Comfort, pleasure, melancholy far behind arousal.
As someone who has seen how easy it is to arouse people even with the lowest of art skill, I can assure you that making something comfy, visually pleasant or melancholic are all far way harder than making something arousing, and they all have more significant value.
In fact, looking deeper at some others, I agree with >>6145612, this is all mere pseudo-science.
>Thank you anon. This is the first version of my theory. It's mostly based on my own observations and a few papers on emotions and art. If you have any thoughts please let me know
Sure, you got me interested in studying this subject (emotions) more in-depth, so I'll share some of my thoughts.
First thing that would be great is to test whether this concept truly has merit in terms of percieved value (and attention) by other people.
First I would consider the audience I'm trying to appeal to (which site, which niche, what pool of people generally speaking).
After deciding on that I'd search for popular artists on whatever platform I choose that fit the niche I choose, and observe and note what emotions are being conveyed in their artwork and what rating/how much attention they gather subsequently on each one. After doing that with a number of artists you'll have a nice ground to build some theories on.
Regardless, the important thing in figuring out the truth of this idea initally in my opinion, is to scale down the concept - both in audience like I noted, and in variables too actually. It might be good to focus on a smaller number of emotions first.

Besides this, one thing about the skill-emotion thing is that I find subtler emotions (ones closer to neutral visually, ironically), to be harder to convey than their extremes. I think you have some sense of this too. So I'd place stuff like sadness, joy and horror lower down the skill level, and stuff like cringe, amusement, nostalgia and interest higher up the skill level.

I would enjoy to see your idea more developed and based on real data, so best of luck.
>After deciding on that I'd search for popular artists on whatever platform I choose that fit the niche I choose, and observe and note what emotions are being conveyed in their artwork and what rating/how much attention they gather subsequently on each one.
The idea being of course, is that you'd compare the emotion and ratings and see whether there is indeed a correlation.

This entire process probably requires more steps and adjustments, so more scientific in a sense, but I think you might be able to extrapolate some data without putting a lot of work into it (unless of course you want to do that)
Sadness must be extremely hard because I've yet to find a standalone piece of art that could truly evoke it. Arousal and awe on the other hand are plentiful on all skill levels.

Why isn't this method more popular?
9 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Is this method useful when foreshortening?
I would say on its own, no. But Watts for example teaches construction alongside it which is a great solution to foreshortening. (Can't find a picture of foreshortened examples but they essentially use the ellipse/sectioning method that most people use to solve limb or torso foreshortening).
If you know the 3d forms from construction then you can combine it with the gestural rhythm lines from Reilly.

Reilly method is designed to be a simplification of anatomy + gesture + block-in.
I would say the more you know about gesture, structure, anatomy the more you would modify your own version of it.
$99 a month is an excellent price.
You get an incomparable video instruction by a renowed american artist, precise and useful feedback on every work delivered and the assistance of a team ready to help you reach your goals.

At Watts, they believe every student should have access to high quality art instruction. They pass down the knowledge from the great masters to you. It doesn't matter if real art education is not valued or provided in your current location. They bring that to you, to the comfort of your own home.

You can find more information at wattsatelier.com
0/10, we already said to pirate it. Can't call us shills when we actively support pirating it faggot.

Was it by the exact same artist?
Looks like it uses the same kind of style.

I'd love a few recommendations for books on drawing manga and anime, specifically for drawing men.
Currently I have two books I love for drawing women which are How to Draw a (Slightly) Sexy Girl and How to draw a human body part of a girl - Sexyly attractive! both of which I find super useful. The only decent one I've found for men is How to Draw a Sexy Man by Tsuyomaru but it feels kind of lacking and the proportions seem off. I'd love some recommendations if you have any! : )

I study regular figure drawing bud, I want these books because anime uses different proportions and aesthetics that westoids simply cannot fathom.
Hate on anime styled work all you like, it wont change the fact that you will die penniless in obscurity B )
Thanks anon for sharing these books. Im trying to improve the body of the girls. Wish you luck in your search
you don’t learn “anime” from how to draw anime books. you put up a series of your preferred manga and literally try to replicate each image page for page/ character for character, while at the same time applying your knowledge of fundamentals (anatomy, perspective etc) to keep you on track. you do this until you can draw in the style of your preferred artist.
why do you retards not get this?? whenever you read these how to anime books your not learning to draw “anime”, your just learning to draw in the arbitrary style which that author had presented his teaching methods to you. I mean if you personally like it then yeah go for it, but your limiting yourselves by not utilising the literally THOUSANDS of resources you could be using, in the form of actual, serialised manga which have been approved by an actual publishing firm.
Even a monkey can draw manga is unironically the only book you need. It's not strictly necessary but it's much more useful than any other book if your goal is to do a manga.
Protip: AI has been generating your anime girls for at least 10 years already. You just didn't know it

logical fallacy
He's right though, you don't need good parents or friends to draw, as for the rest there's no reason to "need". That's like saying air is needed to draw even though it's freely available and so long as you know how to breathe it's not hard to get air in your lungs, very redundant and a pathetic attempt to own anons
