When you are shit and have no motivation, why would anyone want to waste their time mentoring you?

You get the money and pay for a mentor in your case. Free mentorings are reserved for the ones who have the drive and motivation to prove they got what it takes to become successfull - the mentor sees your potential and is excited to guide you forward (and wants some credit in making you a name).

So no, fuck off and pay for it.

I guess i could mentor you... or atleast give you some advice:
You see ok at drawing stuff by eyecopying refference (got past symbol drawing stage , you will still need refference so you see how stuff looks like but now you can actually do more than just copy it.)

Here is the second step:
Read this book , litterally read this book. Do the exercises so you get the ideas in your head.
https://archive.org/details/PerspectiveMadeEasy.
Now if all goes well you should know the basics of perspective ,which means you can now place objects in 3d space using your imagination.

Noice , but as of now you can place only cubes , cones , spheres and stuff like that , now how do i make more complex shapes. You use construction , you construct the complex shapes out of simple shapes. (pic rel)

Construction should not be a difficult concept to grasp and i imagine there are plenty of YT tutorials outthere.
Third step:
Learn how to construct the human body
Fourth step:
Learn anatomy , stuff like muscles , fat , etc.

I dont know how exactly i am supposed to mentor you here tho? like do we go to another platform or do you go to the /beg/ thread
(current /beg/ thread) >>5520981 and get critique for your stuff

It actually sounds like fun being an art mentor. I'd love to have a willing student. Because it would help me push myself too.

Mentor
men·tor
/ˈmenˌtôr,ˈmenˌtər/
noun
an EXPERIENCED and trusted adviser.

A beg cant be a mentor, a beg isnt experienced.

i made your image black and white to compare. look at the greyscale on the pic. and now look at your drawing. you need a much greater range of shadows to give it depth.

also thats not a great pic to learn from, its mostly shadow. dont choose references with your dick. personally i find male references and fat women to be the best to study. you get lots of shape variation and you get to study how light and shadow interacts with those forms

Many thanks anon! Many thanks.
I want to mention that regarding the shading and the lackluster tones, I only did the initial shade and was supposed to fill in the rest, you can barely notice this near the shoulder, this distinction but I realized I have no idea how to shade and it would look like shit.
Very humbling breakdown once I see it on black and white.
>don't choose references with your dick
Guilty as charged this time, I did try to justify the choice by saying, there's an obvious bump, this is good for form but alas, not really.
What do you think about gesture, did I get that sort of right?
>Male references and fat woman
What happens once I attempt something else, I mean the guiding principles are general but what about practice? Can you please clarify that to me?
>>5521788
What's your quality level? Can you get results?
>>5521539
I'll use this book, many thanks

practice is practice. no one ever has to see your drawings, so its totally fine is they dont look good. One good thing is going back over your old drawings to see why they dont look good. Compare them to the original reference and see if you can find the parts that are wrong.

But at the beginning, dont worry about shading. Getting the form and shape correct is the most important. It can be rough and scratchy, doesnt matter. Your first line will NEVER be correct. Use bigger strokes lightly to build up the shape and then you can go over it and lay down the final lines.

Watch these and follow along, they will help you understand what to look for and how to draw them.

I know these can be a bit boring, but stick through them. You can break it up by trying to redraw your old drawings and seeing if you can do them better. Or after you learn something new, try drawing something with what you learned. Good way to practice and see if you've properly learned.

I've been drawing and painting for 25 years and im still learning, it never ends. But the trick is you JUST KEEP GOING.

Here are some good reference pics of models
