i don't know if you can take it seriously but here is my advice

there're no correct route but use reference is better.

btw drawing like OPpicrel help you achieve observation skill,translate into your style. it's a good practice btw. i don't know how to call it but i'd call it "hard reference"
personally it's better to think what you want to draw instead of looking into reference then blatantly copying.

what difference is OPpicrel didn't use creativity brain for composition it will become long term problem if you rely too much on hard reference. example once you start to draw comic/manga you will find that you need to imagine your character scene and that's when hard reference can't do shit.

tldr ; 1. think about what you want to draw (character sitting in whatever angle) 2. scribble it 3. look into reference how things work( clothes,light etc)

also drawing from zero without using reference = bad because it won't help you learn anything and only professional can do that since they have the information and draw tons already. or when you think you know how things work then just forget about the reference

here's an study example 1. thinking about character floating in the water
2. scribble
3. looking for reference, color picker, light whatever.

i start doing something like this and find that it's better to think about composition on my own then search for reference instead of just looking for reference and draw it. but at very low /beg/ doing hard referece, copy is good.

>> No.6679801

doing both in combination.
the way i do it is: study, replicate what i learned, apply to piece. other times i just make a couple of sketches to test my ability and see what i need to solidify.

>> No.6679807

beautiful painting

>> No.6679884

When you're starting you have to use references, you don't know what looks good so drawing from imagination with zero reference will just make you cement bad habits.

>> No.6679917

Both. Sometime you need references for the stuff you want to do, but you also want to be able to draw what you have in mind

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.

I see some improvement. Although in my opinion a lot of it looks traced. Tracing is fine if you're brand new though, since you get to see the contours of the body up close that you'd usually not see upon first glance. For now I would work on values and poses :) keep going anon!

>> No.6679707

Yep, it's mostly tracing :). I've found that if I do something on paper, I can kind of visualize what it might look like traced, so in my way I'm sort of "burning in" that shapes to see them more naturally on the page. Thanks for the tip!

You don't need a perfect circle to draw other forms. Being able to draw a good circle helps, but if you only allow yourself to progress in your illustration after your basic forms are perfect, you won't get anywhere.

>> No.6679921

>How do you draw consistent perfect circles?

Compass, stencil, drawing program tool, etc. You won't need to draw a perfect circle all the time and even pros use these tools to make things easier.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't practice your circles either. It's easy to do that and get trapped though. Either you worry about them not being perfect enough or you do so many that you think that's all the progress. It's a safe exercise that makes you feel like you're doing something.

>How do you draw the cranium, then?

the cranium isn't a perfect circle. In every tutorial they always end up cutting off the sides of the circle because the head is flat in those areas.

>> No.6679932

first you draw this head
then you erase some of the detailed features

Do you think Weebs wouldn’t trash western art as much as they do now if anime art and subculture wasn’t popular to hate back in the 2000s and early 2010s? All the negative reactions they have to non-eastern art regardless of quality seems to be born out trying to get back at the /co/ retards that showed so much disdain towards anime/manga.

Just to let you know:
People didn't shit on anime for its art style
People shat on it because of its childish, immature, and outlandishly perverted content.
The fanbase that consists of basement dwellers only cemented the stereotype

The reason why anime is not hated now is simply because western content became unbearable. People wanted something to replace their entertainment needs

If Western entertainment never fell, anime would continue to be hated by the entire world

Open question here, why do you think the Wests art has degraded so much? Is there a non-political reason for it? Was it our modern art movement?

>> No.6679605

Western art is realism, it cannot "degrade"
Quality may drop and stuff but over all, the ones you call degraded are the Calarts and tumblr shit

>> No.6679609

20th century onwards, there was a oush for more abstract and less direct representational art, even stuff like Impressionisma and even cubism after a while were still too old school. It didn't help that after WW2 Soviet state realism was the thing over in the Warsaw pact countries so the western governments saw a rise in abstract art as a countermeasure, to try to argue that they let any kind of expression fly. Since then, there has been a slow death in terms of ignoring the study of fundamentals in favor of "do fucking whatever"-isms and a push towards simpler and simpler art styles for quick replication and commercialization (i.e., CalArts style). Add in the incessant need of newer-age artists to preach (and not just in an obvious manner like the Xmen, but in a ridiculously patronizing way now), and we arrive where we are today.

More than none but less than you're probably assuming. Many backgrounds are just blocks + props. The main difficulty is simply thinking of what to decorate the scene with, and the time-consuming nature of rendering environments. Tracing helps with neither of these issues.
