Meh. You have a live nude model at your literal fingertips. You just have to learn to draw gestures.
Here are some tips that should help give you a clue on how to get a clue.

Really like your shapes, especially that smoke, reminds me of my character's curls that I've been trying to draw in a fun way lately. Any advice on how to be this loose and still make it look stylish?

The main problem is it's hard to see, so either increase contrast, limit palette or make it so colors clash out way harder in order to increase readability.

Im having a really hard time transitioning into digital drawing.
I've been trying it for a couple weeks now but I cant even draw basic shapes or volumes without them looking absolutely retarded.
Im using a screenless tablet and it is absolutely not intuitive at all.

I refuse to blame the tool since I know for a fact a lot of great digital art has been done with screenless tablets, but I cant seem to get the hang of it.

What are some exercises that I could make to try and get used to this new medium? Im getting pretty frustrated, I feel as if I somehow had to learn to draw from the absolute beginning.

Or maybe I should give up and get a screen tablet?

>> No.6127566

Yeah retard you're a beginner. And if your eyes look the same with reference and without (which I'm assuming is shit) you need to learn to observe better, which is what the book is gonna try to teach you if you actually make it past the first chapter somehow.

>> No.6127709

You're at a beginner level so it's not going to look great. It's the same for anyone doing this for the first time. The book teaches you how to deal with this but you're still going to have to practice and maybe re-do the exercises multiple times to really get it down.

Basically the usual when it comes to learning how to draw.

>> No.6127710

making drawing your own eyes one of the very first exercises is stupid, and not something an absolute beginner who can't draw simple shapes properly should do

>> No.6127714

The book implies it's meant to look significantly better after just one attempt at observational drawing. I'm not getting any eureka moments; I'm still not exactly sure where to start, how to frame it, what should be a line and what shouldn't

>> No.6127721

>not something an absolute beginner who can't draw simple shapes properly should do

Then the only thing to do is work on them together. Work on your simple shapes for one portion of time and then study the book for another.
