I'm not even at page 20 and I already want to kill myself. Fuck you /ic/, I'd rather draw background than these ugly ass faces. This artstyle is outdated and not fun at all.

Then don't use FWAP you stupid fucking gorilla. Nobody said you had to use it and there are plenty of other ways to make cartoons.
>>
>>5130931
so take the processes it's teaching and apply it to somethng that you do find fun

Unlike FWAP, figure drawing for all it's worth is actually good.
>>
>>5130931
You take the construction methods in the book and apply it to what you want to actually draw. It's not a hard thing to grasp.
>>
>>5130931
You weren't supposed to draw the faces, you're supposed to learn what Loomis teaches and apply it with designs you enjoy.

On later pages there are so many construction lines that my heads end looking a mess. I tried doing them with pencil and erase it but it smudges the ink (I'm a poorfag using ballpoint pen)
>>
Seriously people need to stop recommending Fun with a pencil.Its hot trash and a blatant noob trap. FWAP and head and hands are noob traps for begs, loomis head construction method is trash and creates an enormous amount of bad habits.So Avoid like the plague, or suffer the consequences.

The Book is fine for learning construction. If you are complete beg U can read "keys to drawing", " 30 days to learn how to draw" or drawing on the right side of the brain.
>>
>>5131324
>to be tempered in a hundred battles
You should start by google searching what you want to draw and just drawing. Just straight up copy and get some mileage. Then maybe move onto some books and see how it goes. You'll know what to do once you get a little experienced

I don't know why people try to learn with books from fucking 1920 these days. There are so many better options it's not even funny.

Draw what you want to draw, not those fugly faces. If you're not having at least a bit of fun then you're ngmi. You could be using that will force for something more useful.

Learn dynamic sketching first. Draw cylinders,boxes,elipses,circles,spheres ..etcc. Learn 1 point, 2 point and 3 point perspective. You need to be able to rotate these objects in your mind.Learn the basics of light and shadow apply it to those forms as practice. Then once you understand the fundamentals.

Learn from steve huston, Vilppu or any New masters academy teacher. Schoolism also works. There is a Mega link still up for their courses.
>>
These books and others like them are simply a set of procedures that the author finds useful for creating human-like figures. Unlike, for example, math where you need to learn from first principles and build up, there is no such requirement for art.

Draw something, fail at it, look to see if there's a method in a book that helps you achieve the results you want, and if so, use it.

Perspective books, however, do contain some principles from math, since we're dealing with geometry. And these principles can be applied to figure drawing, which is why people say "learn the fundamentals". If you can draw a tall cube in perspective, then you can begin to replace it with a human that is in perspective.

But the whole "draw a circle and subdivide it to find the placement of the eyes" is just a trick that can be useful when sketching *a particular style* from imagination. Not all faces will adhere to the rule. Western and Eastern cartoons will have different "rules".

Getting told to read fwap is a meme, but the book itself is okay. There are far better books to learn how to draw heads or cartoons like drawing the head and hands also by loomis.

>>
>>5138075
skipping FWAP was my biggest mistake. Stick with it, if only to learn the drawing method. FDFAIW doesn't walk you through any of the process of drawing or constructing or anything.
>>
>>5138808
good job!
>>
>>5138811
I’m thinking of just doing Keys to Drawing, then DrawABox, then FWAP, then FDFAIW
>>
>>5138878
Honestly, just do FWAP then start doing studies. Studies of whatever you want, humans, animals, clothes, etc. FWAP teaches a method, and you have to take that method and run with it. Drawabox honestly won't give you anything FWAP won't. Keys might be really useful to go along with FWAP, because it teaches proper obseration and accurate drawing, which will help you construct better

FWAP is a noob trap stoooop telling people to study it its fcking retarded.

The traditional cartoon style is a good way to learn construction because most cartoon figures are made of simple shapes.
It's good to be open to older art styles. If you break down whatever you're into (including anime) it's often built on these older forms of drawing/cartooning (for example Anime/manga is rooted in classic American animation and comics).
Also, a lot of fundamental texts might seem boring and pointless while in the process of learning, only later you absorb the value of them. Art is a job, it takes discipline.

>>5140479
Keep perservering, anon. This is the quickest way to improve. You're on the right track.

Take what you learned and repeat it with other objects. Draw things you like from google images. The point is to repeat that drawing process so much that its a habit. Then whenever you pick up a pencil to draw, you are automatically drawing in that way. Repeat it ad-infinitum and train your neurons to think this way. Move onto his figure drawing manual next, using this method of drawing.
