when i make a digital drawing, the most popular way to know if the anatomy is correct is fliping the canvas, but how do i do it with a traditional drawing?are there other methods?

>> No.3851294

you take a small mirror and put it against your nose sideways, so you can look straight at the canvas and see the reflection

>> No.3851295

Use a mirror, as the other anon suggested. Or take a photo and flip it.

>> No.3851363

Use a mirror or take a photo of the piece and mirror it in some editing program.

>> No.3851410

Face it toward a window or a light and look at the backside

>> No.3851418

Turn it upside-down. Also exposes imbalances

>> No.3851508

This. I do this with all my traditional studies.

>> No.3851830

Fold it in half and twist it around so you can see both halves of the page at once.

>> No.3851839

So how much skill you pick up from doing digital art can you translate traditional drawing?

I only drew on pen and paper. I still can't afford decent pc and tablet.

>> No.3851845

It all comes down to how well you can adapt to the feel of a tablet/pen. The disconnect from eye to hand can be difficult for some to overcome. If you think this will be an issue, it might be better to save a bit extra for a screen tablet (like the cintiq).

Six anons to say flip it with a mirror or take a photo and use some editing program.

You know all those anon that repeated the same thing were taking the piss.

OP get pic related and put them on whenever you need to check your anatomy. Or you could hold your drawing to a mirror and chexk the reflection but that seems pretty complicated, don't you think?
