>> No.6680204

If you can draw the same character design from multiple angles in the same amount of time, or less, it takes you to draw it once, it's a balanced design.

>> No.6680305

Trends really aren't that good for long-term engagement for the reasons >>6680175 outlined: you're basically pissing in a sea of piss. Only do trends if you find them actually fun to draw. If you go into them expecting to get a billion likes and followers overnight you will be sorely disappointed. It's a casino with the odds stacked a mile high against you.
If you want something that'll definitely help (not necessarily guarantee instant success, mind, but it's better than nothing), just find a niche and draw fanart of things you like. A lot of people here have the impression that fanart has to be this slog you have to do for the twitter algorithm and you have no passion for it yada yada yada when that really isn't the case. Unless you're a total media luddite there has to be /some/ game, show, movie or whatever that you enjoy, and drawing fanart for that is an easy win-win. It's definitely a bit more of an uphill battle if that franchise is really saturated (like nintendo stuff) but niche obscure anime/games generally have smaller, more attentive fanbases.
But yeah if you want followers, give people a reason to follow you- and drawing fanart of a series that you like is a pretty good reason

Which is the correct route for drawing. Drawing from nothing or using references

24 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.6680251

draw from reference
fix mistakes
hide reference, re-draw using your sketch as reference but draw it as a character, pay attention to arcs and straights, short/medium/long, gesture pushing, etc.
take break
hide everything and redraw your final sketch from memory

>> No.6680267

You're supposed to fill gaps in your knowledge and build a mental library by using references, not just in studies but also your main body of work. The earlier you use reference the first few times you'll eventually not need reference for drawing that particular thing anymore. It's fucking idiotic to let yourself be put down by "not being able to draw every little thing from imagination". References are tools and knowledge, they're meant to make you be able to draw more. Your favorite artists can draw things from memory because you didn't see the hundreds of other times they've drawn something previously, from props to bodies to poses etc. You're literally robbing yourself of the power that references give you to be able to draw more /and/ get better doing it every time.

You can practice for all eternity, overthink yourself into a corner, stopping yourself from creating, or you can more easily learn by creating hundreds of things while referencing with resources you've consciously collected. That in itself is part of the process.

>> No.6680297

Nobody ever said that you shouldn't use references. But if you don't draw from imagination you will end up like proko.

>> No.6680298

In sketchbooks one develops images, and those are what you use to draw your bigger better more complicated works.

>> No.6680302

this seems like the best fit for anyone. you're building a visual library to draw from, but first you have to ref and memorize a lot of different objects, takes time but as you level up you'll ref less and less

Any artist's coloring tutorial guide videos you'd recommend? I've seen some artists mention in the past that they have some up on gumroad for purchase, but i don't know which ones are worth it if any at all.

yes, i know it likely depends on what i ultimately want my art to look like, but i would just like to see in general if any of you have something to recommend that worked for you. i figured i can learn from good tutorials then adapt them to the way i want my stuff to end up looking.

i guess just avoid hyperrealistic looking shit that requires 40 hours to complete, because i do not have the patience or time to devote so much into one picture. i'm talking a color render shading process that would take under 3 hours.
