I posted this one already but...

Guys I need help with Torso construction. Can someone give me a good way of how to construct a torso because I am overwhelmed by how many ways you can do it.

And yeah I did do this one decently considering my skill level, but I swear I can NEVER remember exactly how I did it. Maybe it's ADHD or just simply not practicing enough...probably the latter as I can easily construct heads now but torsos are just weird to me.

(that being said, I am pleased but not satisfied with my progress, just really need to tackle torsos)

Comics, manga, really any art that isn't completely painterly. A line drawing has already solved the problem of simplifying a real object and translating it into 2 dimensions. It trains very basic observational skills like proportions, comparative measuring, seeing angles, using negative shape, etc. This is how most artists have learned to draw, historically, along with life drawing. It just so happens that copying from your favorite artists tends to be more fun than drawing a bowl of fruit or a striped piece of cloth draped over a chair (you should do these things too).

Practice the first one. When you get to the point where you can reproduce a line drawing very well without breaking a sweat, change gears immediately and go for the second approach. The goal is to get to the point where your hand and eye no longer impede you from doing the real heavy lifting in drawing, which is the conceptual stuff.

honestly no one will give you a straight answer because everybody has its own opinion.

I also like the way that Steve Huston talks about the interplay between gesture and structure and that the concept of gesture and be broken down as the long-axis curve that both flows through and connects the parts of the body.

I think that lovelifedrawing on YouTube has some great simple ideas around gesture. The gesture is about getting the totality of the spirit of the pose. “What’s the minimum information I need to show the attitude and pose and gesture that this person is making?” There’s a lot of insight to be found by doing the little exercise where you make a flour sack emote. Think of the magic carpet in Aladdin. That’s one aspect of it. A great way of thinking about it is that gesture is to drawing what armature is to sculpting. It should be useful, the starting off point to then build the structure on top of. (Gesture can also be structural/construction, btw. Like drawing a twisting bean to show the gesture of the torso, or two boxes to show the gesture of the chest and pelvis, etc.) There’s all different ways of doing it, all different teachers, and the only thing that matters is that the way you do it works for you.
Based, keep going!

unironically stop drawing anime for a while and do realistic people
you're committing to anime-isms that make your drawing look odd
yknow like the "no lower eyelashe" "no defined lip placement" "no noses anywhere" "wonky jawline" "wierdly detailed iris" "wierd almost helmet like hair" "just thin lines in place of an actual eyebrow" "impossible giraffe neck syndrome" etc etc
these anime-ism were developed by skilled artists with good fundies to save time in the animation/manga drawing process
but when a newbie with no fundies applies them sloppily they get the uncanny valley effect
look i get it we all get into art using anime as a gateway drug to get us on board the gravy train but you will someday (if u continue the path of the artist in earnest) will start noticing the anime-isms and they will no longer appear cute to your now forever enhanced and superior perception
i get it we all love anime waifus as a surrogate for our lack of female contact at a young age but anime tends to distort the adolescent mind's perception of "attractive" features albeit indirectly (also why and how furries/bronies happened)
so the sooner you get out of the anime coomer phase of your life and embrace drawing for the artform it truly is the sooner you will see mega gains

also you've got a good grasp of applyig color even if your lineart itself is beyond wonky
now go draw something non anime like a self potrait or something (ps not everything has to be a finished rendered piece dont hesitate to doodle)

Whatever >>7049805 said. Your drawing is really flat, and having a better foundation of 3d might go a long way for you. The linked channel does a decent job in explaining some of those concepts but I don't think all of the videos have eng closed captions. I tried my hand at giving it a proper construction to illustrate what I mean. Forgive me if I butchered your waifu, I just I hate re:zero.

ok so you drew a box there, but why? can you tell where the horizon line is? How are you going to draw a box in the correct perspective without knowing this? You should focus on one thing at a time.

I've been reconsidering my choices since yesterday I think I've been making progress, but I think i've strayed from my goal... making illustrations I like. So to correct that, I will make thumbnailing a part of my time spent holding a pen. I found J enjoyable, I'm pleased with the results.

yuming li is awesome I like his iridescence effect on his art. I think you will benefit from a hyper realistic art workflow not to replicate its result but there are many techniques that can help you get those hard edges: this video is really good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJrIo-s8WZE
also for color using the rgb slider and a read of "how to see color and paint" may be useful.

you did a good job with the left pose, the shoulder can be positioned better (not saying that the shoulder aren't posible but whats the message you want to convey?

nice man!, but the pose is stiff (also a guitar player will always show off the guitar mainly the left hand during a solo, so keep in mind where the figure if positioned in relation to the audience...) I think it would be better to draw the pose before that keyframe, what was the pose like before that one? musicians with great gesture: Victoria De Angelis, jack black, slash, Steve Harris.

if you have no motivation at all maybe you don't like art? why do you want to draw? if it's just to have a skill then you'll probably get bored quickly. if you don't enjoy it enough to draw without motivation then you should probably just pick up a hobby you do enjoy. if you have no ideas just go outside and sit on a park bench and draw whatever you see. the fact that you've gone outside will probably make you feel better and it'll be harder to give up since you've gone through the effort of going somewhere

struggling with new techniques is always part of the process, the best advice I can give you is if you don't know how to do a certain thing PAUSE the artwork and go learn EXACTLY what ur trying to do. if in this case it's perspective don't go learning the entire process of every point of perspective, learn what you need to know to help the current project ur working on.

My crit for this piece, go read up on 3 point perspective, experiment with SIMPLE shapes first then move back to ur artwork and try to work out the kinks. You won't get it the first time just TRY.

The only alternatives I've seen are either starting with a box, circle or starting with a familiar part of the head has like the eyes.

Whenever you sketch the head your gonna have to deal with add/removing part of the sketch that just par for the course. My advice is to just find a method you are the most comfortable with and modify it to fit your needs.

Remember the human body may have consistent part, but the shape, angle, size and etc of a head can vary. Some folks have long heads or big chins, maybe the forehead is more vertical that horizontal. these are things you decide in the design.

Fair enough, it just makes some things like getting the proportion of the jaw right a pain in the ass sometimes.
Although as I start venturing into stylization I see a lot of people just do a general shape that encompasses the entire head and jaw and just carve out a face from that. Ben Eblen is a good example of that

I do plan to properly study the head ofc but I want to be drawing anime girls for fun properly before I get there. I finished Brent Eviston's beginner course and I'm going to do his figure and gesture one later but the head section is near the end

Are you actively thinking when you draw? Or is it just subconscious when you enter a flow state or whatever they call it

Someone should make a new thread so I can continue not participating.

is "draw stuff you like" crab advice.

Yes and no. Yes, because if you don't have any skill, you'll end up depressing yourself over how bad the result is. No, because it gives you something enjoyable to draw and creates positive association to the act of drawing.

What part of this is supposed to be the rest of the owl? This is the same exact steps you find in loomis or in vilppu.
