Hopefully I can find the original person that reccomended "Famous Artists Course" to me. I am a digital artist should I still read the pencil and paper reccomendation chapter or whatever. Thanks.

Thank you! Can I also make the textures build up on top of itself?

Its genuinely a mistake. If you can believe it the crotch was worse than what you see now because someone else pointed it out before it was published.

I haven't messed with texture brush at all so don't really know. Try checking the Texture Each Tip box in the texture tab.

Aside from the torso, it doesn't look three dimensional, let alone human.
Keep studying.

I like it. maybe add a glow effect if your unhappy with it.

I can tell you were drawing a human. Head looks super flat. Measuring by heads is a mug's game imo, I only found out it was even something that was commonly taught recently and I have a distaste for construction-heavy workflows. You drew what appears to be a manga-style head, which tend to be much larger relative to the body than a real head, so it looks really weird when you use the heads for example; If you use relative proportions, you can more confidently push or pull them to give different impressions (age, gender and artstyle can all be contingent on proportions and vice versa). Relative proportion means instead of saying for example "a person is 7 heads tall with 3.5 heads on either side of the crotch line," you say "the legs, from heel to hip, are slightly longer than the upper body, from crown to hip," or "the height of the entire body sans the head is about twice the length of an arm, and the head height is about the same as the shoulder width."

Of course, I don't even use a system like that; I play it all by eye, which I can do because I have a strong visual library. The way to build a large visual library is to draw a lot from reference, finding the inconsistencies in your drawing and repeating the process (rather than just fixing each drawing after you "finish" it), keeping in mind the things you know you do poorly going forward, and then focusing on the specific areas where you are weakest (which is called doing studies, or studying; this can mean specific body parts, or specific subjects, like trees, cars, artstyles, etc, even basic shapes or solids). This not only makes you familiar with how anatomy not only looks but "feels," but also HOW to look at something and take in how the whole thing looks in proportion, which allows you to more easily encode other things in the future without having to draw them first, and also helps you grow toward drawing from imagination without reference or construction.

>> No.5253789

I'd recommend at least looking over it. Even though you are a digital artist, the techniques can still be applied to your drawings. Like when they go over cross hatching or different ways to plan layouts with your pencil and how other artists use them. However, if you think you don't need this right now it's fine. Just try to focus on form and proportions. Do not go in depth in anatomy studies right now just learn some basic landmarks.
Later on, if you want to learn hatching and about line drawing then hammer back to the first lesson. Good luck anon!

>> No.5253803

Where can I get Keys to drawing?

>> No.5253810

Also practice line consistency and weight when you are constructing forms. Try to Break the habit of chicken scratching so your lines will read clear

thanks for the feedback, i kinda feel the same that the heads are not really working out the way their suppose too. after this exercise i might just keep the horizontal lines so i don't get lost on my white canvas.
