There will always be someone out there who is more skilled or more creative than you. If you're of the mindset that drawing is "so fucking easy", chances are you're likely aren't challenging yourself and learning new techniques, and are dawdling within your comfort zone.

The same way you learn any other material: study and application

>> No.4219835

you dont need to remember every single tiny miniscule detail, break it down into chunks, the same way bodybuilders break their workouts into muscle groups. The abs twist and flex outwards and inwards with the abdomen, it acts like a big pillow except the half above the navel is more rigid and obviously harder-looking. the ribcage is fixed, but its exposition on the sides depends on the angle of the arm to the torso. the lats are always roughly in the same position, but in a similar way get exposed more when the arms are raised. the pecs stretch when the arms are raised and compress when the arms are pointing towards the centre, perpendicular to the axis of the torso. the traps stretch and compress depending on the clavicle's angle. literally look at yourself in the mirror for 5 minutes if you dont understand it

If you truly do want to know that far, study the skeletal structure and then learn the origin and insertions of the surface muscles. Knowing this will allow you more accurate representation of muscles in motion from imagination. Its a long and arduous, but you will be heavily rewarded.

Nepgear is not only pure beauty but my girlfriend as well. To obtain Tsunako's skill and style is what keeps me going. No matter the low number of likes no matter the aspects that are lacking in my work, I search for answers to drawing pristine anime then draw, giving up former pastimes just to do so.

Her voice is heavenly cute and her modesty is much wanted in this sinful world with its Discord culture. Where people are hyperactive and draining, she is pleasant, the kind you want to see when you come home. Seeing such a sweet girl reminds me to make the best of my worst by wanting to safeguard a pure maiden from her trashy friends and do earn such a place, I must impress through art. Far too often does the anime artist have their mind on coolness or lewdity while not understanding the calm of Nepgear's presence. The art she is given understands framing so well that it shatters my heart into a million to see someone with talent feature needless negative space. Bit by bit, hair, eyes, shading, framing, I will make this style mine.

So all that sweet talk was really nothing, try drawing her over and over and over again through the course of years and see if you don't feel the same way you do now after going through the pain, grief, and despair of having to deal with her fundamentally. I can guarantee you she'll turn into just like a real W*man, a royal pain in the ass.

Learning the true structure of the forearm is very complicated, there's no other way around it
I recommend Paul richer, Goldfinger, anatomy4sculptors, Bridgman and strength training anatomy. They all have good refs for the forearm.

>> No.4222736

looks really flat below the belly button because you have no good overlaps. hiding the back arm like that is awkward, i would have posed it differently. shape is overall a good idea but very awkward cropping of the top and legs almost right as the knee. don't crop so close to where the viewer expects to see the rest like at the knees or the tip of the hair.

hampton is not a good anatomy book at all, in fact he draws some incorrect volumes. scott eaton's anatomy course is the best video course imo and it helped me memorize everything important (rey bustos is fine too). for books i'd look at elliot goldfiner, richer, strength training anatomy, van der poel, anatomy for sculptors, bridgman constructive anatomy, walter peck. recognize the major muscles visible on the surface. get familiar with how it works and then see if any of those stick with you. i found the video lectures stuck with me the most.

We never said it was about the money, we're telling you that you have a bad perception over the reason why you should invest the time to draw. Most of us draw for the sake of art, we legitimately enjoy doing it for ourselves it gives a peace of mind and it is even therapeutic but it seems unlike you that you're doing it for attention and whether or not someone's going to skim through it. This is why you're suffering from burn out.

I used to love drawing when i was rapidly progressing on my newbie gains. I could feel myself growing every day and it was exciting and ambitious.

Hell the works I'm posting were drawn on my second year after I first picked up the stylus. I was high on my own gains and ambitions and I loved waking up early just to draw the entire day every day, quit gaming completely, quit smoking so I would sleep tighter and shorter and just studied and drawn all the fucking time.

But then i stopped growing and here i am, i only got worse since then.
I want that back.

work on your hair shading

>> No.4223697

Your anatomy isn't terrible but it's far from great, so that's always something you can work on. You could also add a lot of visual interest to your piece by adding in more color variation, if that's something you don't know how to do or are intimidated by, it's a good sign that you need to study color theory.

I'm guessing the hair in this piece isn't done yet? If it is, it looks really odd to have minimal flat shading in a piece that's otherwise more rendered.

>> No.4223701

Have you ever tried to paint traditionally? Changing up the medium might help you gain back some of the excitement for the process, and you can learn a lot about colors if you have to mix your paint. Plus, I think it would work well for your style, since you seem to be going for something very painterly anyway.

No that's a finished piece.

Gotta figure out how the pixiv guys do that glossy stuff. Yeah honestly I've been running away from the highlights.

A lot better than just leaving it flat, but some highlights are still a good direction to go in. You could also be more deliberate about when to use soft and hard edges, it seems like you use them somewhat randomly in your pieces. To over-generalize a bit, form shadows are soft and cast shadows have hard edges.

>> No.4223740

If you're uncomfortable with it, than it might not be a good solution, but the 'terrible' part will go away with practice just as it does with digital.

Really weak but trying.

You slapped a 6 pack on her but you never heard about the sides and the other muscles.
She has no sides, no arm muscles, no pelvis or ass, her ribs stick out like on the Joker in the last movie, but she has one powerful rectus abdominis. Like imagine have one single muscle in your body.

Also the tiny little wrinkles on her face immediately turn her into an old lady. Since in stilization everything is very simplified, streamlined and many details are omitted when you draw a tiny wrinkle it really fucking sticks out as a major and important detail.

hi /asg/, today I return with the next batch of 71-80 of the mad quest, this batch was coming really slowly and was not very inspiring as it was just the same character that also had a simplistic face. I got bored and even frustrated sometimes about her longer face and smaller eyes.

Currently I only feel that my speed with the current new solid brush I a using may have improved. But I had troubles drawing too big, as for the studies I keep it 100% view only and no canvas flipping which is also not idea for drawing accurate art. It makes it harder and I make mistakes a lot, I still can't seem to find the logic on how the original artist draws the face line and the head proportions. But what is done is done for now.

no lol, you are missing the point. The redrawn "redline" isnt an improvement, its an unnecessary flex lol. You dont need to change the perspective, gesture or w/e bullshit of the original intent.

Its like, hey play catch up with me. The only thing useful is the shadow tip for form, but thats easily fixable idk why you would claim this as a fundamentally broken piece. The pose is easily fixable, instead of her right arm being hidden you could have raised it and made a hand pose instead. Her left arm can be repositioned to rest on her hip. its basic changes and the piece would still work and actually IMPROVING the piece. doing a complete redraw is just extra and needless as fuck lol.

Your entire post is just confusing. You're allowed to make changes, but not *too* much, even though every single additional fix contributes to a linear improvement of the piece?

Yet very little have made it. Shall we abandon everything then?

>Redlines like your pic are about as helpful as finding a stock image and saying learn from this.
You lost me on this one. Both of the redlines explained their thought process and decisions verbally and visually. They both corrected fundamental mistakes of the piece, from composition to anatomy to construction and explained how. It's fairly straightforward, actually.

If you still genuinely, from the bottom of your heart unclouded by any biases, can't see the utility in these kind of redlines, then I'd rather stop here because we're too fundamentally different that we'd probably never agree.

>You lost me on this one
Because they are entirely different poses and composition the artist didt learn anything hes hust gawking at basically a different drawing with the only thing original are the design elements. You can tell the op x and y and expect them to follow the wore of advice but they never do. Again you are not changing a mind set or a contioned artist to learn differently by showing a redline with drastic changes. They will all reply like >>4226257
and the efforts become futile. Just wait till his next post thats the real kicker. Nothingnwas learned today and you morons continue to be as clueless as ever. Ill give you shitheads a year or two of browsing ic before you finally realize that monkey see monkey do is not an effective way of learning.

>> No.4226290

>You dont simply soak the info
Nobody said otherwise, to learn something you need to practice the information displayed in the redline. I don't see how this is somehow not possible.

>Because they are entirely different poses
What they did is that they corrected their composition. I don't know why you are so insistent on this point.

>You can tell the op x and y and expect them to follow the wore of advice but they never do
Of course you can't puppeteer an artist to do exactly what they need to do. Improvement and initiative is entirely the responsibility of each individual artists, even in the most tightly mentored scenario.

>Again you are not changing a mind set or a contioned artist
But they do. They clearly explained the fundamental mindset of how to think about poses from the ground up.
This to me is a lot more valuable then something like telling people that their deltoid is 2 inches too short.

>Just wait till his next post thats the real kicke
Yes that's how learning works, you don't instantly become good overnight.
There is no instant bullet resources that will make you magically good.
And the sad reality is that some people, like some of the artists you mentioned in the previous post, will probably never reach the upper echelon and that's just how life is. Even the most celebrated mentors like Watts can still produce oddballs like Proko.

But that still does not detract from the objective merits displayed by said resource and should not be used as a reason not to use it.
I would really like to see an example of what you think is a good redline from /ic/.

hey, don't mention it, i really enjoyed drawing the dragon girl (luna, now i learned). after doing a lay-in with the color picker, you could try adding in some colors you pick yourself as well. i notice a lot of areas of pumped saturation in the shadows of npa's work. the more i looked at your piece the more i was able to see the effort you put in. keep it up

Ok, fuck it, tried to ask everywhere except from here. This is was done as a birthday gift for a friend, I don't really like furry, except for sindoll and kemonono. So I tried to draw something... not so western.
Do you guys think this is a functional style? Does it looks good in terms of lewdness, composition and anatomy?
I started to learn to draw around October or September last year, I suffer from chronic depression and made learning to draw one of my main objectives this year. I'm not sure If I'm being successful, I feel like each one of my drawings is a painful process.
I'm trying to draw something resembling an scenario/background for everything I do to avoid that bad habit of characters floating in a blank page. Whenever I finish something, I get back to it in the following days and keep trying to improve it until I become tired of it.

>> No.4226572

i'm not good enough to remark on the composition but i think you're being too hard on yourself. it's good you're actually finishing and backgrounding things but maybe you should stop just before you actually get sick of a drawing.

i know for writing at least, a good strategy is to stop just as you really get into it, so you'll know exactly where to start next time instead of dreading it.

unironically just have fun with it

The face looks like something you'd see in an old How to draw Manga book. Don't hide hands, don't hide feet, breasts are too big, too many random scratchy lines that make her boobs look like a nutsack.

The muscle definition of her right leg makes it look flat. I forgot the name of it but that vag tendon doesn't go that far down the leg. Her arm seems a bit long. She has a very sharp face but cute, seems like she'd have a kuu/dandere personality, though the face anatomy seems a bit off around her eyebrows and ear. Good variation between the different type of surfaces (skin, cloth, metal). The metal of her gauntlet could be shinier, if it's supposed to be metal and not leather. The background is impressionistic and simple which is fine because the character is the main focus, but the clouds are a bit hazy and formless. Good color temperature on the sky and mountains, looks like morning. The octopus has some good lighting but the thick lines make him look flat. Overall pretty good, no autistic fetishes or western style.

With the proper learning you can improve way faster then some guy mindlessly drawing since they were a baby.
