2020 is almost over, show me how much you have improved through these months ngmi bros.

feels good to be an ANIMECHAD desu, how can you niggers even compete?

i have only done commissions and have only seen a small fraction of passive improvement

i hope you haven't been like me anons

How can you draw and not improve? I thought all you had to do to improve was draw. I see some artists on tapas who run 3-4 webcomics who barely improve over the years either, its frightening.
>>
>>4991783
as i said, small fraction of passive improvement.
when you're trying to ship a product you just streamline your process to creating the same old result, you're not looking for ways to make something noticeably better every time. don't be obtuse

i think why it looks big to me is the left eye being small compared to the right or being too high or both, and her jaw being too low and the cheek too high which makes the jaw even bigger and makes the face look too big, also the mouth being in a straight angle which makes the jaw look big.

jaw is at the mouth level, here's some lolmis and some animu faces and the land mark makes sense in those twos.

I feel like I don't have enough of the right sort of picture to show progression like this. A lot ofmy drawing is exercises from whatever I'm working through, which are hard to compare over time.

I don't have a lot of old stuff saved, and aside from a few doodles when bored, I stopped drawing altogether until 2020.

I was trying to get good at painting/shading, and I suppose in june was my peak, before I got discouraged and fell into my old trap of only wanting to draw characters because it is the only way I have fun with it.

Yeah, that's true. I think half my problem is that I'm at the point where the REAL area I need to improve is my subject matter, but it's like my hands get performance anxiety when I try to draw what I really want to draw and we end up with another generic pretty girl. I do just fine when it's just a "for me" drawing I won't upload anywhere (like in my shitty diy sketchbooks, doodles on scratch paper, etc) so I know I CAN do it. I just don't know how to do it on command.

Hey I'm desperately searching for a cringe art portfolio of a guy that drew like thousands of yellow faces. They looked similar to this picture but worse and more simplistic. I've had another anon say it was a swedish artist. I'm trying to find it- I need to show it to my friend. I'm really hoping that someone in here knows what I'm talking about. I remember looking through the gallery like a fever dream and wondering what type of person made all of them.

Just keep going though. Draw as much as you can, force yourself to draw things you don't think you're necessarily good at, and remember that 1 hour of smart study is worth more than 10 hours of aimlessly drawing.

>>
>>4999265
Let say for example you want to study anatomy of the forearm, sure you could do draw it over and over again but you at best be digging through the surface than doing a full on excavation, instead you should try to break it down to simple shapes and familiarize yourself with the muscles and their origin/insertions and draw the anatomy of the forearm stretching/pulling/flexing or any motion d you can have a general idea of what to do when drawing it in another angle. Try to really break it down and analyze crap basically. Heck try even connecting it to the shoulder

Get mileage by drawing what you like. Just copy stuff you think looks cool. It’s not a race. Make drawing something that you enjoy. For example, I used to enjoy the gains, then I enjoyed using new tools, now I enjoy pulling images out of my head and scribbling them on paper.

You're constantly posting on /ic/ and your shit now looks the same as that shit there. Either you haven't been drawing long enough for there to be progress to track or you're just retarded.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: you shouldn't really be posting your work at the level you're at, because it sucks and it's uninteresting. It takes months and months to make any observable progress, and it takes years to develop a style. A "style" is a deliberate choice. Poorly copying an anime is not a style, accidentally fucking up proportions is not a style. Style is deliberate.

There's nothing wrong with getting better, but he really should not be here. One, because it's a black hole of negativity and two, because it's a waste of fucking time when he could instead be drawing.
There's nothing wrong with his work being uninteresting and bad, that's par for the course since he's clearly quite new. But he shouldn't be posting it everywhere when it's not worth sharing. It's not even "good for a /beg/", it's just objectively shit with no redeeming qualities. He needs to put in much, much more mileage before he can reasonably get any real critique.

>>5014541
Time spent drawing. A huge part of improving in art is just making lots of art. Your lines suck because you haven't drawn enough to get much better. Anatomy, perspective, design, line work... it all improves primarily through practice, even the stuff that you'd think is mostly theoretical like anatomy can be bullshitted just by looking at people and drawing what you see a lot without ever actually "knowing" what you're drawing.

Maybe it was just coincidence then, in which case I'm sorry. I kind of snapped when I even saw you post your stuff on /a/. I've been witness to a lot of artists shilling their shit on 4chan over the years, so I tend to assume that if I see someone a lot it's because they're spamming their stuff everywhere, but it's entirely possible I just by chance see your posts.

>>5014553
>how is someone supposed to know all that just by saying "milage"
By being competent in the language we're conversing in? Mileage refers either to literal miles traveled or more metaphorically "how much time/distance you've spent with the subject".
>maybe they spent a long time drawing wrong and thats just their "milage"
Possible but unlikely. There are cases of people who just draw exactly the same for years and years with absolutely no improvement, but those are edge cases and such a fate can be avoided by exercizing a bit of critical thought. Literally just looking at your own work, looking at someone elses work and thinking "how can I get my work to look like their work?" AND THEN ACTING ON THAT THOUGHT is enough to avoid it.
