**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.**

try using a grid guide and slowly reducing the amount of squares with each iterative drawing. you need a strong sense of proportions and solid visual measuring skills in order to learn new styles, and this is one way to develop that. it looks to me like you're making the same proportional mistakes (face taking up too much of the head), and that's something you might ingrain by repetition.

if you enjoy details, go ahead and add them. but you can tell whether or not you've captured the essence of the reference just with big picture proportions. i would focus on one thing at a time. if you're practicing proportions, dont worry about detail. conversely, if you're practicing detail, don't worry about proportions. eventually as these two things become easier on their own, you'll want to practice them together. it's a little bit like learning a piece on the piano (most instructors would have you practice hands separately, and then hands together)

nice to see that not everyone on ic is retarded, i've said some pretty similar things. If you're stagnating, you need to work smarter not harder. Pay close attention when you find a part you have difficulty with, the parts you find yourself needing to redraw, or can't place right, or otherwise are interested in working on. Then figure out how to not have trouble with it any more. That's troubleshooting and it's the best thing.

People who say to "draw every day" are just repeating brainless cliches, you'll naturally draw more if you enjoy it (because you're winning often) or if there is a lot of work to do, you really don't have to force it.

asian hair is naturally very dark brown/black, and naturally straight. It is not brown like you did it. Again this makes the character look like she's ethnically European when she's supposed to be ethnically Asian.

Unrelated anon, I think why we draw "westernized" anime is because we know how our facial structure looks like and it's stuck in our subconsciousness. Therefore it requires more observation than from an average Japanese person to achieve the same effect. We know how an European eye looks and if we want to draw an eye, that's what we think of. When I was studying various styles I've noticed the height of the eyelashes peaks slightly towards outside instead of the center like "our" eyes and that's what mostly says that drawn girls are Asian and nor Caucasian.

Though I think the only crucial part of drawing the eye is showing the eyelid partly going over the tear duct, because the "peaking" isn't always there depending on the style.

I don't intend this as an excuse for having trouble drawing ""real"" anime which doesn't resemble western animation and I hope this all doesn't come off as cringy as if sounds in my head. It's something I've noticed trying to figure out why my drawings always looked a bit off, and maybe helps someone else too.

heres a redline?
your style it kinda goes against our lord loomis sama, however it can work

you are missing some key points usually the nose bridge and the chin are parallel on grils otherwise they look like gigachad

the bottom of the nose is usually in the middle of the top of the eye socket and chin you can get a bit lower or higher but not really much,anyways for your drawing you need to draw a longer neck if you draw a regular one it looks like a child with small eyes a trait for adul people so you are mixing a lot of mistakes there but most importantly youd drew the back end of the neck too close to the ear wtf, and the point of your nose is too in the middle it should be lower otherwise again it looks like a child so as you can see your drawing is a trainwreck

at the bottom you can see i drew the ear closer to the eye but still doesnt look bad because theres still some fundamentals there

tdlr: LOOMIS but also check a good source for the style you are aiming,imo the persona style fits your shit

also always draw a silhouette of your bodies before adding clothes hair and stuff it helps a lot to find mistakes trust me on this

I'm too high inhib to draw anime hair and clothes, the only thing I'm comfortable with drawing is drawing blank anime girls with a face.

Always remember the place where the bangs "grow out" from and direct the lines from there. Visualize the long strokes in your head before you transfer them on paper/tablet and try to keep the flow in mind. Then, you can do studies and just redraw the hair focusing on where the strands come from to develop muscle memory. Btw, I recommend downloading booru grabber (Grabber) and finding artists you really like on yande.re or any other booru and batch downloading their art. It has helped me a lot with studies.

His supportive feedback looks ironic, so I gave him an ironic reply.

In the case it's not ironic, you should probably understand, to get this far in drawing, you should know when an ankle looks bad, and how to do classic fundamental practice.

Is it delusion or conceit to have the default attitude that your work is perfection until someone points out what is wrong, and then when someone does, you tell them that their criticism is worthless. Your work is extremely basic, not a single sketch is even a completed figure. What I'm saying is, there's not much to criticize, so what do you expect.

this probably won't help you cuz it's really shiddy you'd probs be better of just copying anime hair, you'll get a feel for it eventually.

Learn some of the common "macro" structures. learn a few common patterns like the "sharks" I showed. git good at depth so you can make the hair seem outwards, learn it from a few different angles maybe. Try some tests where you connect all the hairs back to the same point.

Most of all just spend time figuring it out, observing, contemplating, working through it. Although maybe you already know all this.

Anon is fine, avoiding drawing digitally does more harm than good in the long run in my opinion. You see many people who draw very well traditionally but their digital art is beyond awful. It's better to get adjusted slowly over a long time.

Both, I was on my way out when I posted so I didn’t have anything. I’m not home but I’m trying to practice anywhere I can so I did this about 30 minutes ago, I figured I’d just keep trying and maybe something would click.

Okay, so I did the same pose that I drew before and I didn't learn shit even after the red line so I've got some questions.

For the head do i measure the red or green square for proportions?

Also why is it that either way if i make the ribcage larger to like 3 heads it looks super weird? Is it because the body isn't wide enough?

I also tried making the left shoulder higher up but then it seems like the armpit area is too far. I didn't make the hips wider either because I think it looked off last time I did that.

I don't really how to fix my shitty body problems. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have these kids heard of STUDYING? Like, when you learn by yourself about something by reverse-engineering it into a method that's most compatible with you?!!

Loomis, Hampton, Bridman, they're all just ways for you to study from life. Not solely construction methods for you to misuse when drawing from imagination then come back here to complain about how shit they are because you were shit at it.

Shit looks fucking flat as fuck, and I was studying from an image. I took some liberty and tried to put my own spin but it still feels flat even without colors. Any advice anons? Or maybe I'm just overreacting? Feel free to rip into me, I can take it.

Think the main issues is the jawline and just overall hair shape. Eyes are wonky, but I think I can make it work if I practice a bit more.

>> No.4076926

the jaw is nonexistent, eyes have different heights. Head's way too big for those miniscule shoulders. The eyebrow on our right is misplaced, should be more to our left.
The irises were drawn in different angles it seems, notice how the one to our right is almost a full elipse while the other looks like half of a much larger eye.
The cheeck shouldn't be that low imo

its ok. i'm mostly concerned about the jaw and iris part of your post. eyes (atleast anime styled) are super tricky because I constantly look at other artists and see them do this these weird angles and all but it all works. I was trying to emulate that and see what happened.

>> No.4076950

The face is not flat and especially not since she's looking at an angle. Eyes need to curve.

I wouldn't say my jaws are that good either but what's been helping me with the eyes is mostly taking care into the construction phase.
Might be unnecessary but I use a pseudo-skull that helps a bit, it's an easy construction method to memorize for me just to set everything up before drawing.

I got the construction method from a group of skulls I saw in the skull thread that's been going on.

>> No.4076991

Yeah, I haven't studied much skulls if it's obvious lol. I've studied Huston's heads and such, skulls was always tedious but I'll go do some. Seems like it's something I need right now. Other artists make it look so simple.. its just a line for the jaw.

here's a really crappy redline in tegaki.

If I had to list: head shape is off. Hair could be bunched in a way that is more properly 3D. Eyes not properly 3D - but you noticed all these things already.

work with some reference - then try getting it right without the reference. You can also maybe try doing a cross of lines curving over the shape of the eyes to get them properly 3D.
