Basically any tutorial that leaves out many important steps and/or isn't helpful at all

Sooooooo fucking many drawing manuals skip an essential part of the process and that's how to place the paper, how to hold the pencils, and how to sit/stand. Seeing the hand/arm gestures of an artist in a video helped me progress more than hundreds of pages of drawing manuals.

In all seriousness what exactly are the intermediate steps between these two? It has become a joke precisely because nobody will explain the process.

>tfw been attempting to learn to draw for fucking years
>the only thing that clicks with me is how to edit/modify shit that already exists
>tfw basic construction to me is essentially pic related
>have no idea how this shit is supposed to click with me the same way editing does
>tfw always get frustrated and end up quitting after like 30m-1hr of trying and failing to apply construction

Seriously though, can someone explain the steps between these two?

This is Ryakuga (略画) and has nothing to do with life drawing. It's for amateur art lovers then to draw easily. Just like へのへのもへじ. Search "Henohenomoheji " on google.
Yes, Hokusai published these panphlets many times for he was a popular artist. But it's no different from draw an owl meme.

>learning to draw
>start with basics, how to draw lines, arcs, box perspective, etc.
>time to graduate on to drawing people and shit
>suddenly crash and burn with basic construction and anatomy
>everything feels wrong, nothing is clicking like how it did before
>all these damn books aimed at beginners are basically registering as pic related to my brain
>even loomis is hurting my head
What am I missing? Why isn't this shit clicking? I don't want to be that faggot that can draw a box but can't grasp basic anatomy

doing fun with a pencil, does loomis ever tell you how he constructs his faces, or am I just supposed to copy him and suddenly understand how he does it

Speed him up and skip the first three generously. Also skip when you think he's being repetitive, and go back if you see he isn't. Constant breaks and screaming for decades into your pillow also help with the frustration for Olson. You'll learn to appreciate him so much, he's literally the only teacher that tells you each and every pencil stroke it takes to draw the rest of the fucking owl

my life has been falling apart for so long now that motivation for anything of any kind is like a rare resource. i was fired yesterday and now i'm a NEET again with nothing but time. i stop any creative endevour the second it starts to feel like work. i'm losing interest in everything and now all of what occupies my time i am forcing myself to enjoy. even a competent initial level of performance can't get me to see anything to completion.

i have barely started or half finished drawings, piano pieces, programs, models, and media everywhere. i'm slowly turning into a barely sentient NPC, but my only desire in life was to be productive in the arts. at this point i just want to sleep for 16 hours a day. what can i do to enjoy the entire process of creating art, not just the end result? how can i get myself to enjoy simply drawing for the sake of drawing?
has anyone here clawed there way out of a hole?
