I took the brent eviston basic drawing course and apparently he did way more just about every day for a year when he was a student. I didn't commit that hard but I started just drawing pages of circles and ovals of various sizes and it's helped me immensely with drawing curves so I'd say it's helpful for at least something.

Sketched up a small shortstack, might actually make this into a character but gotta go through it again to fix the anatomy on the legs as they are a bit too long for this type of character. Also the general anatomy isn't quite there yet.

I love your work redblobfag. I remember when u used to be the resident schizo gesturenigger just less than a year ago and now your figures are amazing with beautiful lines and good volumes.

you are very kind! dont be mislead though. my drawings are more like very elaborate careful paintings using a thin brush - that is to say they take a very long time still. i have yet to improve my speed to capture a spontaneous quality in my figures
no specific course or teacher, i honestly attribute 95% of my improvement to this practice routine i (autistically, over-analytically) developed >>7161375

whatever i could hope to teach a student, they could recreate on their own for free following that practice routine

>>
>>7168035
sorry, no. my pc becomes literally unusable (for drawing) if i try screencapturing at more than 1 fps (and even then, it microstutters at about 1 stutter per second lol)
the only snapshots of a pictures progress are the underlying layers like in this example >>7167821
which all get reduced in opacity, merged down and drawn over until there is only the final image left

as for more "conventional" drawing and painting - i almost never do them anymore to focus completely on iterative figure drawing (and adding values only to make the final product a bit prettier for customers)

The balance seems stiff because the torso is in front and the limbs are doing things around it.
I'd like it more if her shoulders were tilted more (one up, one down), right hip and glute raised, the navel mark placed in the middle. After that, perhaps lower the left leg a bit or add foreshortening on her left arm.

i am using sai (version 2) so i could not really give you my brushes if i had any specific ones

my one and only brush for drawing, sketching, linework (aside from calligraphy) is a round brush with slightly softened edge, with strong pressure sensitivity in opacity, slight sensitivity in size, and a weak "blur" / "smudge" component (i would advise against using smudging brushes usually, but i got used to "destroying" an underlying brush stroke by placing another stroke on top. the weak blurring effect destroys the underlying brush strokes edges and the eye can focus on the stronger top brush stroke more easily. it is a matter of convenience while i am sketching, when actually drawing i press down hard enough to cover the underlying strokes either way, regardless of blurring or not

(pic related, ive posted it before... sorry. here you can see the same brush at various sizes and various (unfinished) stages of a sketch to get afeeling of how it behaves. large soft brush strokes at the beginning of the sketch which "blurr themselves" into being vague, and increasingly smaller and smaller and more decisive strokes which due to a smaller brush size look sharper. basically the hard round brush meme of doing everything with the same brush. its nothing special, only i have gotten used to it completely)

also i should note, the size sensitivity serves only to make each stroke itself a bit prettier, when i start a sketch with a large brush size, i do not press harder to make it bigger, i increase the brush size itself and press down very lightly to create very broad and very vague suggestions of shapes. do not make the mistake of trying to cover a wider range of brush sizes with pressure alone! you will drive yourself insane as i have before i understood this
>>

thanks!
im sorry, i have no microphone, my spoken english is not nearly enough to convey information efficiently, and above all - i do not use discord or any apps that require my personal information. discord (like many other apps and services) requires a phone number (or an email address from a select few whitelisted providers who themselves require phone numbers) which is linked to my government issued id by law. unless this is a turn-off for you, look into the app i suggested "session". it requires no signup, it is available for mobile phones and desktop, it routes traffic over TOR automatically. otherwise again, sorry for the inconvenience

I remember Rapoza saying that to git gud (and he is really fucking gud) you need to grind fundamentals, apply them to a drawing with reference and then from imagination over and over and over for HOURS A FUCKING DAY.

I despise and hate people who have families to support their dreams or at least put a roof on their heads and food on their table so fucking much while I have to wageslave. I will REALLY APLLY MYSELF during the weekend when I dont have gym or wagecage to fuck my shit up.

Hello. I saw this pic in this forum days ago and I would like to see how can I achieve to draw these curvy body with a chubby face (it would be cool if it could differentiate age) like that.

You can’t work any faster than this, because of that, at the very least, you should try to enjoy whatever time that you *are* able to draw - you should give yourself credit for drawing at all between balancing a job; many-a-post I’ve seen other anons describing it as impossible trying to draw after work. Hope the caffeine usage doesn’t burn you out though - I always felt like that extra energy has to come from somewhere, and it always catches up with you eventually

>>7168627
Slow down (I’m not talking about quality over quantity, I mean just in general, slow down)
>>7168630
Probably want to start with easier forms first - you’re trying to draw several things way above your current skill level: wings, fantasy-type creature anatomy, scales, feathers, hands, eyes / teeth that are sorta just pasted flatly onto the form, etc

The original anon who bestowed the name “Red Blob Senpai” was simply known as “Gesture Anon.” (who had himself finished copying Hampton and Morpho Simplified, he was a few memory copies into Bridgman before he disappeared)

“Gesture Anon” also gave another name, “cheesecake Bridgman anon” to this guy who apparently had only been drawing for 1.5 years, did 1000 Loomis heads in a couple of months and also finished copying all of Bridgman in a short amount of time - cheesecake anon also advocated the big Morpho book. Both of them have since disappeared from /ic/

not even crabbing, but I've never seen someone draw as badly as you, on or off /ic/

do you have some kind of learning disability or mental deficiency?

Are you some kind of an advanced troll?

Your art reminds me of an obese, clinically autistic neckbeard who was in my life drawing class. He smelt bad, and would walk up to random girls and chat them up for 10-20 minutes at a time during break, and during critiques he would get defensive and on the verge of tears, when people told him how badly he drew. This was in a hug-box, sjw modern art type art school too, yet those people couldn't hold back from telling him how badly he drew.

And yet you draw worse than him.

Learn to draw what you see accurately. Control your proportions. Go through Betty Edwards. Stop posting your shit here until you've done a month of accurate, still life drawings. No one needs your inexperienced, dunning kruger advice. You said in another thread you were "staking your life on drawing"? What a joke. Pawell is 1000x more gmi than you.

What's your dream project? It all comes to that. Just the idea of "I want to be an artist", never works by itself. There must be a deep motivation. Something you want to do or express. An story, a fetish, an obsession. Something that force you to keep going even when you suck. You will fall to a bottomless hell, and keep falling, but there must be "that" something that keeps you going. And keeping going against all odds is the only way to get gud, and "make it". It may take more than a decade, or a life time, you don't know. The only thing you know is "that" thing that push you forward towards that goal. If you don't have "that", then you will be in 'wanna be' limbo for all eternity. "Wishing to wish" something that just it is not in you at all.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful response, it honestly helps me a lot. My "artistic vision" is difficult for me to put into words, but I definitely have one. I like drawing excessively large and repeating patterns that are tedious and take hours to do, not because it's difficult to do it, but just because I want to and no one else will. On average I spend 2-4 hours drawing on each weekday and upwards of 8 on weekend. I have done this for years. I like making something that really "exists" in a tangible way. I like showing that I was there and that I did something. I like doing pointless things for hundreds of hours just to say "see, I really do exist."

If I had a room to use to create a showcase, my dream would be to plaster the floors, wall, and ceiling in my doodles. Then I'd like to hang more down from the ceiling with fishing line so that you can't physically move without pushing through them

There was a lot of criticism from others, from which I realized that drawing was not my thing. All this is meaningless without the talent to simply draw a cube in perspective, correctly compose a composition of shapes, and expressively depict anatomy. There are talented people and untalented retards in these threads. Ironically, I used to think about this in the context of the exact sciences, where a mathematically gifted person solves a given example by going beyond the basic formula, and the retard simply follows it, simply copying the solution. This happens in writing music, books, learning languages, sports and other crap. That picture from /r9k/ with the football player chad and the girl kissing him is presented as a figurative achievement of perfection by the artist, when the football player is an artist who has comprehended all the rules and principles, and the girl is his desired image which he can perfectly draw with his excellent skills. In the end, my thoughts about the determinism of the will are confirmed by Howie and a lot of anons drawing crap. What you want to draw, what you can draw and how you draw it are completely different things, and a talented artist mixes them all into one. I would like to show creative nihilism, but that would be self-deception, because only your crap and the crap of people on the same level as you have no value. I really hate you all, largely not because of your talent, envy, but for personal reasons. Reflection makes the idea of something more, a dream, nonsense and rubbish; you need to return to reality in time, in which you are just a small and offended crab, destined not to get out of the bucket, but to be eaten, before that you just dive deeper into your essence.

when I first got into it I was extremely inconsistent, but have worked on my industriousness to the point where I have drawn fairly consistently for the past few years and for the better part of a year have been drawing every day. my point is that a work ethic can be cultivated, you don't have to be a naturally hard-working person. start small, gradually build up, and you can make a lot of ground.

Let's face it, most people should leave these threads and not litter them with their garbage, there should be 10 or even less people left here whose progress is really high and they deserve to be artists... It's just that the majority still believe and try, and those few with talent they show leniency, but even so this endless whining about obstacles is a manifestation of the true meaning of your soul. Subconsciously you understand that your true essence cannot draw, but your consciousness copes, you post your drawings, you want criticism, and you get it, but what in the end? Look out the window, look at this janitor, he is honest with himself and his consciousness knows its place, it is united. The main problem is that you are a janitor but want to be an artist, you are a janitor but want to be a programmer, you are a janitor but want to have a girlfriend, you are a janitor but want to write books, you are a janitor but want to write music, you are janitors but want be something more than who you really are. Janitors remove garbage from the street and leave when the street is clean. The janitor does not need to be on a clean street. You are janitors who should remove your garbage from the thread and leave on your own.

I do not mean this in a rude way, as I hope you can understand where I'm coming from, but I am skeptical whether you actually believe that. of the people who have stated something similar to you, I would venture to say that a vast majority were not indifferent about their life and more specifically their shortcomings. if they genuinely believed that it didn't matter because "the conclusion is exactly the same," then there would be no sense of regret. perhaps you will be an exception, but that is very unlikely imo.

I’ll let you know how it goes. It took me 4 years however, to produce one animation which was anywhere near the quality of say, Yeero’s first animation he had ever uploaded to the internet (on his old Tumblr account), so I feel like 1.5 years isn’t enough time for me to learn art fully either (or even to any decent or acceptable extent); if there’s a bell curve of people with talent / learning speed, I’m no doubt on the far, far, left side of that bell curve. I’ll try my best though and let you know how that shit goes. Odds are you’ll be disappointed though. (Hell it was about seven years before I even grokked wrestling, though that’s another story altogether)

My mind is literally resistant to learning. I’m certain most people who have already made it have the drop on me (started before me) by 10+ years, but I try my best nevertheless, for however puny of a time that 1.5 years of drawing mileage might be.

I know really great artists who only paint, with no lines. It helps that you can work digitally. With oil painting that would be harder, but if you like to paint only, then just paint!

Then there must be some misunderstanding here - I try to do memory copies more than a week later after I originally copied it, I have not previously “shown my work” before this, but I can show you the exact plates that I’m trying to reproduce from memory, and wherever I can’t (which is often), I am trying my damndest to substitute in some type of remotely close set of shapes that I can muster up that will still represent that I had learned something from copying said plate in the first place.

Top left is a pair of legs I tried to style after doing a Norakura copy,
Top right is a Loomis head with part of Mustang's outfit from FMA,
Bottom left was me trying to roughly capture the shape of a Taco head + adding hair to it which I've also copied from Paryi

(though hair has not come very naturally to me so I don't remember much from the copies I did of him weeks ago, as I've also gone back to grinding just pure anatomy again)

All memory copies / best-attempt-memory-reproductions I've done here were done more than 24 hours after the original plates were copied.

hey not sure if this is the right thread for this but working on a game and im a bit stumped on how to make the character im drawing match more with the overall aesthetic of the game. Not necessarily the artstyle, but moreso the coloring of the character, and how to make it match the backgrounds, yet also stand out.


First picture shows the pink outline i wanted to try at first. Kinda worked. Second is when i tried to keep the pink, but tried making her all black to see if it would help stand out. Last is when i just tried coloring normally but it doesn't match the game at all.

The game's background art is pixelated and i try to keep the amount of colors to a minimum, i'll reply to this with a few screenshots so you can see what i mean.

The bottom two is what all the art is gonna look like, i just included the actual pieces up top so you can see the color scheme and aesthetic better. Im starting to think maybe the background art is too busy, and i'll need to maybe dim it when the character comes in or something, but i also really like how the art looks, so idk.

>most people should leave these threads and not litter them with their garbage
Sometimes I come here to see the work of the new /beg/s and there are some that are worth giving advice because, as someone with experience, you can clearly see the potential, it just needs to be polished. Unfortunately, those /beg/s only post here rarely. And like you said, it's probably only less than 10.

As for the rest, I don't really see the need to give them any more advice because I've done it in the past and yet the progress they've made has been zero. And it hurts to say it, but you're right. Maybe those people should stop drawing and abandon this thread on their own when they realize they're really bad at drawing.

I don't know how to explain it, but even if it's a poorly drawn drawing you can really see the passion that person put into the drawing. But here, apart from just a few /beg/s, I don't see that passion anywhere, it's as if these people only draw for the sake of drawing, without motivation or passion behind them.

it's a visual novel. Im making it for a class, since the final project was a multi media kinda thing meaning you could do whatever as long as it presented an argument of some sort. my argument is "everything will be alright" and im basically just using the girl character to be the optimistic opposite of the player character who's more nihilistic. pretty much they just go on a walk to a store to find food to feed a stray cat and she talks to you and tries making you realized things aren't all so bad. script still in progress, but im glad you were interested.
