Are there any famous top-tier artist who don't have the ligameme? KJG has it (pic below), so does Vilppu, Proko, Scott Robertson, etc. I honestly can't think of any high level professionals who don't have it.

For those of you who have made it, please post your wrists. Note that the ligameme is two (or even three) ligaments, not just one. If you have only one in your drawing wrist, you don't have the ligameme.

Do you retards even think for a second and question if this is the actual artist and not an imposter like the dozens of other threads we had?

If this is the actual artist, my critique is that your work is fairly generic and boring. It's not beginner tier work but it's also not something i'll look twice at. Learn composition, learn story tellling, learn how to draw environments, learn how to color(don't use pure whites), learn facial construction, learn how to draw hips, I could go on and on just apply yourself youngster.

I'm 32 now and I've been drawing anime for years and let me tell you something, it's a big fucking waste of time. Aside from commissions( which you would probably have a hard time getting at this skill level) there is really not much to make from drawing big eyed creatures.

How do you deal with the disinterest zone?

To make certain illustrations sometimes you need to dwell in really boring and tedious subjects. Like, you have to spend hours rendering dull stuff like rocks or paper.

How do you approach this?

I mean something like a car engine. It's very complex and really boring. But you still have to do it. Sometimes such jobs just happen.

What then? Some suggest trying to put your own personal taste into the image or giving personalities to the subjects, but I just can't feel like doing that.

Step up to the challenge.
Though I suppose that only works if you have a confrontational personality.

>> No.2954280

I might be shit at thinking of things I don't want to draw, but there's way to make it interesting. Say, using the new knowledge of drawing that new object in a way that interests you.

For example, if I were to learn the specifics and design of engines, I'd incorporate them into my interests like drawing pin up girls or large scenery drawings like Kim Jung Gi's stuff that has various people, creatures, and objects in it.

Could easily draw some exaggeratted scene of hot chicks working on cars in a garage with some suspended engines, car parts, ect. I think it's more about how you incorporate them into your interests. I wasn't even interested in drawing cars before I saw this thread and now I want to do that workshop landscape just to see if I can.

>> No.2954281

I don't know mate, the stuff you're talking about like rocks, paper, and engines are cool stuff. It would be like drawing gore and cartoony stuff that I wouldn't want to do.

>> No.2954285

>It would be like drawing gore and cartoony stuff that I wouldn't want to do.
This is subjective, though.
You may not like to dabble in either of those, but someone might make use of those and find them interesting. I know I do, I immediately think Voynich Hotel or old cartoons and shit.

I think the trick here is to force it into your interests; mold the subject into something you WOULD like. But I don't know if anyone else operates like this.

I bought two of these and was very disappointed. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I replaced both of my figures with a full-body mirror next to where I work. Really. I just use myself standing in front of the mirror and make appropriate adjustments for the opposite gender. I found this far less time consuming and greatly improved the quality of my final workups.

I thought these figures would be an invaluable tool in helping me work difficult foreshortening/perspective problems but they always ended up creating more work than they solved: 1. Physically posing the figure is time consuming and somewhat frustrating since it's very easy to accidentally mess up other parts of the body as you're posing one region to another. 2.There are lots of limitations on how you can pose figures since the joints have limited rotation arcs and the muscles obviously cannot deform, I frequently noticed that I had to compromise the appeal of my final workup more than half of the time because the limitations of the figure reference stipulated it.

>> No.2954204


Well, that's disappointing, I have 2 on order. after they were shipped I found them cheaper elsewhere, and now they apparently arn't very good to boot.

Actually yeah.

I bought a Figma She and, while it has helped me with foreshortening, her stomach doesn't crunch in, which leaves me SOL for a lot of poses. I still kind of want the He because the She does have its uses.

I can't really pose myself in front of a mirror and fold my gut in either. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

>guess he was never that good at spilling the beans.
Also just wanted to comment on this which sounds really weird to me. He literally left behind thousands of forum posts where he talks about his thoughts and opinions on just about everything, detailing a lot of things in art and technical "secrets" of the time. He has numerous live demos/lectures, he's done a mentorship program, he has posted lots of quick sketches and thing that most other pros would keep to themselves, he's posts step-by-step process shots and at least one full psd with layers, he's uploaded videos of him painting, he's shared his brushes, he has done paint overs for people, back on the forums he even occasionally broke nda to post images that helped him make his point, he has done several interview etc etc etc. I honestly have learned more from him about than from any other source, simple because of how open he has been to sharing information. I think you are really misrepresenting him to say "he was never that good at spilling the beans" when he's shared more than just about any other artist. Nowadays he doesn't take part in any online social media stuff, and he has always been somewhat private about his personal life (barring old stories of him at art center or something), but he has given away gold mountains of art knowledge and information about his process.

I'm struggling with head turns, what's a good book that will help with the subject?

I'm currently going through Loomis's Drawing the Head and Hands and Burne Hogarth's Drawing the Human Head. While the latter has some really great methods on dealing with how much cranial mass should be shown in the back based on the amount of turn in the pose, I am struggling in figuring out how to properly place the contours of the foreshortened forms of the eyes, nose, and mouth barrel.

I specifically struggle in placing eyes based on head turn. I have seen many diagrams showing axis lines hinting how to place eyes on a turned head (like pic related) but my heads just don't turn out that way. There is some bit of knowledge I'm missing in order to check my eyes are correctly placed. Eyes are easy in a purely front or side-view but as soon as the head turns and the nose starts to overlap and the eyes themselves foreshorten, everything falls apart.

Imagine or construct a simple skull when you draw.

I like to simplify the face into the forehead, eye area, and the cheekbones. The cheekbones are key for drawing different angles. Many people will forget them. They are like a shelf for the eyes and forehead.

I drew an example of how I draw heads from imagination. Do not use this as direct reference because the heads are a little wonky, but I hope people get the idea.
