Reminder that if you understand how form works and you're still using 3D shapes like cubes and spheres to construct your drawing, you're doing it wrong. Once you understand form, you need to use abstract organic forms to construct your subject or it's just going to look stiff and lifeless.

Whether or not you subscribe to the view that "everyone can learn" to draw, it's pretty obviously that some people ARE born with an advantage. There are documented cases of small children producing good art without any training whatsoever, and clearly without having grinded the fundies for 10 years at only 3 years old.

So lets discuss this seriously for a change. Why are some people born with a talent for art while others are not? Is it genetics, random chance, or something else?

Yeah I tend to like the look of underdrawings and become hesitant to ink them but the inking process is very fun even if it transforms it into a different picture and my pencil rendering is better than what I can do in inks.

I got over it by copying other peoples drawings so they were effectively worthless as I'd never show stolen/copied art to anyone else or post it anywhere so if I fucked it up it didn't matter

>> No.4164843

>caring about the end product, ever
>making it

You can pick one, and only one. If you want to make it you need to fully understand and truly embrace the fact that the real value of anything you do is in your head. Not the thing you created. Think about it, once you're a master with 25k hours of deliberate study and practice you'll be able to crank out art that will make people marvel and go 'wow that's incredible how does he do it?'... and it'll be effortless to you. Because the real value is in your skill, and that's only inside your brain. Nobody can take that from you. That is the beauty of art, and why it's a skill of true worth.

You need to stop caring about

- muh pic for instagram
- muh gold nugget pencil drawing

And acquire 25k hours of deliberate practice and study. Throw away your sketches, they're worthless.

Pay homage to everyone. To all of the characters. All the Disney princesses and villains, all the mangas and animes, all of the tv shows and movies, all of the video game characters, and all of the book characters that weren't popular enough for anyone to want to play in a movie.

Is there any decentralized file-sharing software similar to SoulseekQt but without being topic oriented (soulseek for example being for music mainly)?

It'd be great to share reference folders, artbooks, tutorials and all that shit without having to request links. file-sharing software has that magic of finding unique stuff when browsing shared folders, and it could be a nice way of helping each other find more specific stuff.

>> No.4164538
File: 188 KB, 508x370, linevalueee.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

It's actually really easy. Lineweight has TWO components to it. First one is LINEVALUE (I.E. how dark the line is) Second is THICCNES.

Basically the darkest and thicker a line the closer it appears.

Why does it matter... well, if you use colour or shadow or light value, it really doesn't.

But if you are doing a figure, it's important NOT to contourn all around it in a line with the same darkness and thickness because it will confuse the eye and it won't be able to interpret depth.

Look what I made in five minutes. Which one of the following pops forward more. Nevertheless the key here is subtelty.

Other thing to notice. If you are doing a light value drawing, what matters is not the strenght of the line but how much LIGHT the object is recieving. And colour adds another dimension. The most important thing for most is to realize where the volume is the most forward and the most backward. If you can see volumes well, you can linevalue, and Lightvalue well.

>> No.4164540

Now that I pondered on it, the OP drawing prolly based of a dummy draw have bad linevalue. For example notice the knee bone. It's suposed to be more foward than the thigh, yet the thigh has a higher lineweight. That drawing did what I was talking about the contourns. Don't unnecesarily add contourns around a figure.

>> No.4164679




Draw bigger.
Draw the same line: rotate the canvas or paper.

I posted the first link because you can see how some lines don't look really smooth when you look closer. And that's actually the norm: most of the time when you look at an illustration you're looking it at 50% 25% the original size.

>> No.4164926

Don't confuse lineweight technique with Clean up. They are totally different things. Most artist have to cleanup their sketches. With practice you make beautiful lines over your initial sketch.
