I’m trying to get back to drawing, I’ve been trying to draw random animals from memory, it’s much harder than I thought, here’s my first attempt. What are other exercises and challenges that would be effective for me to become a better drawer/illustrator?

Observation is an invaluable skill for drawing from your imagination. I would suggest reading Keys to Drawing by Bert Dodson.
It’s been a thing I’ve always done, over the past few years I’ve kinda stopped due to work/school

Interesting, suppose I don’t really have a real reference for something I want to draw (exotic animals, places or things I don’t have access too) what do I do then? I sometimes feel like it’s cheating to look at images as references, what would be the most rigorous way to go about it?
If you wanna draw exotics from life consider a membership at your local zoo, or even just try going to a pet store during off hours. Most carry reptiles, arachnids, and exotic small mammals these days.

Cover of the Rondo of Blood SNES remake by Akihiro Yamada (same artist from >>4211373).

Fun fact, Konami changed Richter's design when they discovered the artist directly based his original design on Ryu from SF2.
That's why Ayami Kojima redesigned Richter again in subsequent appearances.

I feel like I did this wrong.

Give me actual criticism
16 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I think you should focus on the drawing. The main issue here (as with most paintings) is the drawing.
Work on making solid drawings, then do monochrome paintings, then tackle color
No fundamentals. Good-ish technique. A little muddy for my taste.
You didn’t study the form enough, focus more on the drawing to make sure you know how light will play off the subject. The colors are awful as well. Painting technique seems like you haven’t experimented enough.
Thank you:)
Anatomy is off in general, facial features look too flat, particularly the lips and the disappearing shoulders. Colors look muddy and bad. Is the yellow outline supposed to be rim lighting? If so, it is much too thick, too consistently sized, and the color is completely wrong.

>Average composition.
There's nothing going on with the composition at all. It's a centered portrait with nothing keeping the eye from leaving the painting at the top.

Medium has nothing to do with anything.

Loads of misinformation here.

Know any good art books /ic/?

Does anyone know books like this one? prefereably, one that doesn't involve viewfinders or handcraft in general. I use my left-side brain more than my right-side brain. So it's more difficult for me to learn to draw
LOL can't believe you fell to this meme
1.Realistic drawing is a left brain activity.
2.Drawing on the right side of the brain would results in complete trash modern art with no fundies

3. Right side of the brain is used for design and composition

this is why many people who have shit right of the brain can draw really good but cant design for shit so they become art instructors

tl;dr art is like math. This is why you can recreate its rules with 3d engines
Are you 15?
Not sure if bait, but Keys to Drawing is much better then Edward’s garbage but it still has it’s fair share of flaws.
> muh sides of brain
A myth. Anyway, Keys to drawing. And I'm sure as hell that sticky has it.
>Wants to learn how to draw
>doesn't want to involve handcraft

IC is getting smarter by the day, or with worse bait by the hour.

It's time to try something new! Upon many polls made, This is the new resulting template.

THEME: Comfy Home


1. Request a tile before you draw.

2. You can only request a tile that:
is adjacent to a completed tile or on one of the 4 corners;
is NOT adjacent to a another tile drawn by you.
also, if it is adjacent to a tile in progress, you must first let them finish before starting yours.

3. No copying and pasting any other images. the content in your tile must be drawn by you.

>that pic

You should constantly have aim and projects for what you want to do and achieve when and how.
You should also have an endgoal
What do you want to be able to do by the end?

By the way if your'e starting from 0 a year may not be enough.
bretty cool but not very original concepts tbqh

Apologies for the absurdly large influence map. I have a wide variety of tastes (from cartoony to realistic) and wanted to showcase my various inspirations.

I unfortunately don't know the sources for most of them (especially the pencil sketches and watercolors), but if any anons are interested in a specific piece, I'll see what I can do.

Feel free to r8, h8, or apreci8.
despite some very good art in there, i think youre /beg/ and p young, like below 20. also now we're two people with joker art in their collage.
c-can you name the influences?
They are quite nice, but I don't recognize them
