**Don’t aimlessly study the fundamentals or anime. Learn the fundamentals (form, values, color, composition, etc.) through properly copying anime.**

How to study anime/get better at imagination drawing/obtain a style/etc.:
>Find an anime reference you like (an illustration, screenshot, anime figure, 3D model, etc.)
>Find learning material that will help you reconstruct your ref using simpler fundamental elements
>Trace the ref using that construction
>Copy the ref using that construction
>Draw the ref from memory that using construction
>Repeat the process for the same ref multiple times and mix in other refs
>After studying a lot of refs, drawing from your head will become easier

**Focus on Tracing/Copying/Memory drawing the big shapes/values/elements first then later worry about the finer details. Focus on only a portion of a complex ref first then move on to studying the full ref.**

General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Keep most of your personal works for /alt/ or the other critique threads. Here we should be drawing copies from good references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Not the same anon but what that anon is trying to say is that you have to copy if you want to build a visual library, lol. Copying figures, sculptures, artwork you admire, and other stuff helps build your visual library.

This pic from another thread is a good example. If I try to apply say a standard loomis head I have way too many pieces. If I try to structure them on a more simple way trying to figure out how its done in the image I never get them right and they always end up looking wrong or off putting.

>> No.4003273

Copying through pure observation is a form of copying. Copying through reconstruction is another form of copying. I'm not sure why this is so difficult for someone who "can draw" to understand.

Again, people are encouraged to use construction in these threads and I'm not sure how or why you got the opposite impression. You are literally arguing against a strawman you've built yourself.

>> No.4003277

When we say "copy" we mean analyzing and breaking down what we see in front of us to learn how to apply to our art. The same thing applies to studying fundamentals and books.

The OP even says to "properly" copy instead of mindlessly doing it which is what you are referring to.

Copying is about understanding a style. It's to see how a certain artist represents reality. What colors does he use? How does he represent form? How are his lines? Is there texture? What are the proportions of his human figures? Copying it allows one to analyize these little details, learn them and at the same time integrate them in his own artwork.

And yes, fundamentals are needed, of course.

This is stupid. You should be doing your studies alongside your personal work. For instance, you make personal art, you see you have trouble with color, you study artists with decent color theory. You go back to personal art, you see you have trouble with anatomy, study artists/reference photos of anatomy and then go back to personal work. It should be a back and forth thing.

>> No.4004737

Good artists never "practiced". They learn through doing art. You should implement your "studies" into your personal work.

Instead of just doing a boring portrait of some photo or whatever, you also can make a real piece where you use some photo references.

Or instead of making a boring copy of some anime character, you also can make a real piece where you copied parts from anime characters.

Oh fuck off with your bullshit. Building a portfolio or churning out works one after the other is nowhere near where my priorities are at the moment. I'm a /beg/ who wants to learn how to draw in a style reminiscent of my favorite artists, while at the same time remaining motivated with a constant reminder of why I got into this in the first place, and the absolutely best way of doing so that I've found so far is to simply attempt copying and trying to internalize aspects of illustrations I like.

Please tell me, how do you expect anyone to learn how to draw, say, a particular stylized face or a certain kind of hairstyle if they do not even once look at and try to study it? Why do you think it is that most professional illustrators' advice basically boil down to "just copy bro"?

>> No.4004787

I never said you shouldn't copy. Learn to read. I just said that it's actually better to make more out of your copies.

I started like you too. I also just copied a lot from references, and that's it. But it's also not that hard to make more out of this and turn it into a real nice picture.

For example, instead of just copying a girl from somewhere, you could turn her into a robot (use other references for this), and add a nice background (can use references again).

Even pros still copy. But they do it smart. They turn it into something unique. This is what you should learn too.

>> No.4004804

I appreciate that you decided to elaborate on this, because that's a substantially less black-and-white take than your first post. I get what you're saying. I do not think I am yet at a level where I can comfortably and confidently create original works and get anything meaningful out of it, which is why my current main goal is to build up enough of a visual library (through sheer copying and "reverse engineering") to actually have a decent idea of what I am doing when I sit down with a blank canvas.

How do I deal with semi transparent lineart getting messed up when applying colors under them?
I'm sick of this. I like brushes like these because they feel "natural" but when it's time to color they become messy and inconsistent
This is also why I do the entire coloring process manually instead of using buckets and fill since they can't detect the textures line's boundaries correctly, as far as I know.
Should I just give up and use a simple pen brush with no holes or textures to them?

>> No.4008326

Don't use pencil to line if you don't watch that, some like it, some don't

>> No.4008399

My answer is that you don't do clean coloring with a messy brush, same as you don't do messy coloring with a clean brush. You don't paint with Copics over graphite or with colored pencils over lines drawn with an inking pen. I think you should use a non-textured brush since the difference won't be visible anyways. I don't know what you use but for CSP, there are downloadable brushes styled to look like from SAI and they're similar to what you're using now, just not textured.

>> No.4008408

Fine, I guess I'll give up until the day I become one of these omniscient painters who someone know exactly which brush to use for what.
It's indeed CSP. I can just get rid of the texture effects and transparency so it's not a big deal but it's true it's barely visible anyway, now that I think about it. I should probably research how to use full screen postprocessing to make the picture look less digital as a whole.

I have no tutorials but videos of their process is out there, if a bit dated (they're still using old artstyle, but its still close in most aspects).
To get the shading/colors right, their first step seems to be painting values in greyscale. I think that's the key to getting a similar look, pay close attention to how they do it on clothes in particular and how they paint reflections. They use thicker outlines and the eraser tool for the lines, and with the newer art Minaba seems to like using lighter colors instead of black in general, such as brown or yellow.

Also remember that if you're not familiar with greyscale there are some things to know regarding hues and the values of different colors... I found this video pretty helpful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOtwCG7BLSA

This might help you for how they do anatomies, might make your studies more fun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH9sX0oGYik . Try doing the same. And remember that you won't get the grub look instantly, the people working on this are pretty skilled.

Asians are slender, petite and with very small waists, a good amount of Japanese artists I follow use completely realistic proportions and compared to the reference photo it will be the exact same body. If not stylized to the point it couldn't exist in reality, it's realism. It's not only what other anons and me say, every single art teacher repeats you need to know the rules to break them.

It's quite possible that the reason why you have trouble is because you have not been exposed to something you need to know. Try to figure it out. Some general things that shifted for me as I got better were:

1: Took the time to deliberatly notice when I was having difficulty with something while drawing, then spent time trying to figure out how to not have difficulty. That troubleshooting helped so much.

2: Overall made art take up less energy. You don't get faster at drawing by trying to draw fast, you draw faster by making the process simpler.

I was shit and learned nothing for a long time as an 9 year old, but when I started using reference at around 13-14 is when I first started making improvements. Needless to say this has made me very big on the use of reference for beginners. /ic/ is very good for telling people to use reference, hell it's what people are already mostly doing in this thread, so I don't think I need to say this, but If you're using reference you're on the right path.

After that I started learning proportions. Appearantly some people say to do gesture studies or something, but I just went straight to trying to memorize drawing anime grills from scratch. You do this by making up proportions, testing them to see if they work, repeat. You use a lot of reference in the process. For this it's just developing a method, memorizing and getting used to it.

2 of the greatest developments early on was the discovery of depth, and trying to make it look good. depth is well, depth; but for trying to make it look good, well. When you're focused on developing a process, you're focused on technicalities and proportions. Eventually you gotta learn to not put yourself in this out of touch mindset, and are instead just focused on the drawing at hand, for good quality.

I stagnated a lot. I didn't like drawing, I was bad at it, and it took a lot of energy to do as I was so slow and didn't understand things in any simple way that works. In other words I was doing something wrong, yet I kept forcing myself to draw, and feeling bad that I wasn't drawing even though it was crappy. [tip; you cannot sustainabley do something hard, so don't expect it. if something is hard, you need to make it easier if you want to sustain it.]

Never gave up in perpetuity tho, eventually I got smarter and found better methods of figuring things out (troubleshooting, trying find a simpler way). Fixing all the little mistakes I learned, 1 by 1, until here I am, finally, finally making progress. Thank God for the wisdom.

I never understood why people think that custom brushes or settings provided by pros suddenly make you a better artist. You're not going to draw like a pro if you're using the same brush, it's a matter of preference, not utility. Lack is kinda jewish for trying to sell his assets, but he's smart. He got the fact that people fall for this shit(probably because of the constant GIBE BRUSH SETTING PLS on his streams).

huh why tho. There are good unique brushes for which not even 5 or 10k would be enough since they change the feel, look, and workflow process dramatically. A good artist would get his money's worth since he'd get the money back after a couple months or a year of creating and selling better artwork. Most of those are nip brushes.

So I'd say you guys are pretty stupid for expecting good artists to just give out their tools for free, heck they wouldn't give away their personal "secret" tools anyway but at least you'll get something close to it that they customized, which often takes thousands of hours and attempts to turn into something decent. I haven't tried that guy's brush, but given that he priced it in such a way shows that he understands it's value (or the value of his brand) and is not willing to give it away for less. Ofc there are many who would try to scam you by selling overpriced snake oil, be it a tool, vid, tutorial etc, but it's up to you to distinguish between them.

Dramatically is a major overstatement.

>A good artist would get his money's worth since he'd get the money back after a couple months or a year of creating and selling better artwork.

A good brush will streamline certain things, but virtually every custom brush is just how hard/soft it is, texture, and is either more square or more round. After that, the nuances of any given brush get immensely diminishing returns. I find it extremely doubtful that a brush at that cost would get you your 'money's worth' when you could do the same thing with a far cheaper one.

>but given that he priced it in such a way shows that he understands it's value (or the value of his brand) and is not willing to give it away for less.

Or he understands that something is only as valuable as a fucking idiot is willing to buy it for. You can sell 100 $1 brushes to 100 intelligent people or one $100 brush to a dumbass with more money than sense.

oh was this without reference?

different head size bodies. My orignal style was 7 heads plus a little bit.
I also learned a sailor moon style of body. I'd like to describe it as 6 total heads tall, but i'm actually not sure. The legs get extended and I've always just winged it.
Recently i learned another style where it's 4 heads.

>tl;dr if you're doing 8 head tall gigachads on a child's face, that's dumb.

Then you would be too retarded to draw, period.
Loomis, if you strip away the specific way of teaching anatomy and whatnot, is at its core construction drawing, and is in principle no different than any other method of construction taught by any other instructor. They each have different ways of presenting specific subject matter, like proportions and whatnot, but the concept is still the same. Once you get the concept of construction drawing and become proficient in manipulating imaginary 3D solids, of creating an illusion of depth and form on a 2D plane, you can literally draw anything by breaking down a subject into its constituent parts and memorizing them. You can't effectively draw from imagination at all without understanding this stuff. Instructors like Loomis just give you a foundation to start with, and honestly Loomis is probably one of the easier ones to understand. Try taking a look at Bridgman or Burne Hogarth's books sometime, they're much more complicated and they don't handhold at all. Loomis's books are pretty comprehensive and explain the concepts pretty thoroughly.

Your problem most likely isn't that you can't into Loomis but rather that you're probably jumping in the deep end too soon and getting frustrated because you don't have the prerequisite skills necessary to understand and utilize construction drawing effectively.

Try going through Keys to Drawing and Drawabox, strengthen your observational drawing skills and have at least some understanding of how to draw 3D form, and then take another crack at Loomis. If you can't draw simple solids you're definitely going to have a hard time jumping into Loomis or any other instructor of constructive anatomy.

I've never read that one, but yeah, that looks good. I would recommend looking at as many different books as you can, honestly, because each instructor offers a different perspective and new ways of thinking of and looking at a subject. The more ways of looking at a subject or problem that you have, the more solutions you have to apply to it.

I thought that understanding realism would be the hardest part, wrong, style is hell.

Am I supposed to put anime eyes as if they are stickers on a round surface?
This is what some of my favorite artists seem to do on certain 3/4 angles.
It's killing me to do this though, I can't stop thinking about how wrong it would look like if I rotated the face on a front view

Did this to try to see if I could understand what was getting shaded in the original, and I don't think I learned shit. some of this shading seems so arbitrary

>> No.4016300

>he pays for his brushes
just get the free brush sets, experiment with them and after trying various brushes you can replicate pretty much any brush

>> No.4016303

Original is enough for what it's trying to do with a light source being from the top slightly tilted to its left. It's not going be totally logical in every realistic respect but just to a point where it appears sensible without thinking too hard which is what could cause that arbitrary feeling.

>> No.4016314

There is a shading technique that puts volume of the character you're drawing before "photophysical correctness", maybe try adding as much volume to the character by lighting as a starting point for doing lighting.

Not to say that this technique gets a lot of harsh criticism, but it might explain the reason why the lighting can be arbitrary.

>>4016303 Also has a good point, the artist isn't a computer after all.

>> No.4016385

Thinking it's too difficult and giving up is the first step to ngmi. I also find it difficult because of the wording, English isn't my first language and Loomis explanations seem somewhat cryptic. Read it over and over again until you understand, and if you don't, there are people who do and they explain Loomis methods. I felt thrown into deep water reading his instructions but after watching a video of someone showing his method in practice it suddenly became completely clear as you connect the dots. If you give up so easily, you can as well stop drawing, so keep trying and look for videos showing Loomis in practice. Read over and over again and experiment on your own, and you'll get it.
