Lmao same. She had a messy house I was in while I was fucking her.
I hate drawabox but it at least taught me how to not overshoot my lines

Anyone else doing this? I have to say I'm surprised how long it is, these exercises are no joke, especially since you're not allowed to rush. Realistically I think it will take like 6 months to finish the whole course.

I came here cause I was drawing boxes, realized I like it a lot, wanted to learn more about drawing, saw drawabox and clicked on this thread. Not even OP too. Picrel is my work.
>The guy who did DAB is a self-taught artist and programmer
Jesus christ I'm a programmer myself. Are programmers just autistic enough to draw boxes all day? I also stumble upon this online, https://www.reddit.com/r/ArtFundamentals/comments/8mr1o6/is_draw_a_box_good/
> I'd say drawabox is perfect for people like programmers. People with well-organized mindsets (not saying that's better) that like following clear paths. Edit: Poor phrasing. I meant people that have a tendency to recognize and analyze recurring patterns.
Thanks anon. Here's another method I found for this shit: https://goodsites.tech/. Has a bunch of great sites, some of them are torrenting. Already found dynamic stretching in one of them, won't say cause I don't want to get banned, but it's here.

Going through this thread, I feel like this DAB shit is crap. Ironically I would love it, but oh well. I rather draw trees anyways. Thanks for dynamic stretching, I'll try it.
Thanks. Even digital counts? Or is it cheating (looking at smoothing/stabilizing lines)?
I think there's the idea that only "drawing what you like" will never improve the artwork because no time will be spent on books and courses. Basically running in place.
If you're bored, you're obviously not engaged. If you're not engaged, you're not learning (or at least very inefficiently). These exercises are a waste of time if you don't put them into practical context and use construction for problem solving. You will not level up artistically by drawing hundreds of half assed boxes.
is this a meme or are you for real?

Approximately how much time and care is usually dedicated to planning out the drawing before actually drawing it?

What is /ALT/?
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.

Didn't see a thread for this so I'm making one.

Never started one of these threads before so I'm probably screwing up the formatting.

Anyway, post traditional art. I'll start.

I agree with the steps not being equally separated. Individually, there are relatively uniform thought, good.

Also, this exercice can be practiced by compressing the value range (e.g. using a gray instead of black); this helps when working with color.
how many oil brushes do you actually need? entry level packs usually come with 4-5 but i see videoes of guys with dozens
A matter of personal preferences/subjects/brushes qualities/etc.. The many-brushes people do so to avoid having to clean them with turp too frequently.

If you're just starting out, try to go as far as you can with one relatively big brush, and develop your preferences from here.
I usually paint with that much and more.
I got them for cheap over the years from yard sales, flea markets, and travelling merchants.
Having many oil brushes is great because you can use different brushes for different colors, like for background and for skin. For shadows or for lights. It is also safer and less wasteful because you do not need to clean your brushes while painting.
You can clsan them with linseed or walnut oil.

How did the masters learn to draw/paint?
10 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
studied nature
Who learnt it from masters before.
Who learnt it from masters before.

Who learnt it from Nature.
Who learnt it from ???.
The mentors showed them mostly the practical parts of making pictures as the apprentices helped them complete it. How to prepare colors. Which pigments do not mix well with each other. How to layer paint.
Something important that people over look because their concept of master or mentor is the modern one of lectures is that they would have had access to drawings, and they were free to copy them and learn the lessons from them and apply the lessons as they copied public sculptures and paintings.
In their training hatching, since most drawings are done this way, becomes the primary technique that they are exposed to and that they develop. It is how they record their experiences. While today it is considered an extra technique that you learn after learning how to "render" which is now almost synonymous with "technique" itself. The way of analyzing is very different from something like the ateliers today. This is partly why very few manage to make convincing old master hatching. Another reason is when beginners and ints want to study it, they learn from tutorials and books by artists who are actually not that great at it because they are too retarded to analyze drawings for themselves. Also because they do not actually like old masters. If you have another goal in mind, the way you look at other works is altered by that goal. Notice how despite old masters, particularly Renaissance, being discussed a lot no one here actually wants to draw or paint like them?
We are also taught to "master drawing", in which mastery of drawing involves making stale, realistic tonal drawings, or sometimes with heavily conceptualized methods along the way, and then you are free experiment and stylize. This way of teaching developed because the teachers had to appeal to a wider diversity of artists such as animators, illustrators, comic artists, etc.
From their mentors and from observation.
Can you please stop opening dumb threads?

That's true, coom really does bring in the big numbers and I only do it on occasion too. Either OP is right or I'm actually a good artist which I highly doubt.
I will now start drawing softcore porn of girls getting into bad situations like suffering, bullying, pain...
And if you make the bullies be tall tomboyish girls, it'll be even better

Don't any of you retards know how to copy the shapes? It's literally how everyone naturally learns how to draw.

I watched the whole video and have a lot of respect for the guy, and I think he has a lot of potential
like everyone else here I think, initially I was struck by how obviously bad his work was, but as I continued watching I was reminded of my early drawings and how I lacked crucial things like line confidence and an eye for forms, which are skills that only come from persistent practice
its clear that the guy is an absolute beginner and has a lot to learn, but I can't fault him for that because we all start somewhere, and the fact that he can see his drawings aren't the best and pushes on to improve is admirable
good luck to this guy, I think he's gmi
