How do I draw hair better?

>> No.7139591

i recommend you to look for hatching techniques, just learn the simple things and play with them, better if you learn from some artists, just with that you can improve a lot, like, a lot, the overall appealing of your sketches. You already have the base so learning that should be easy and the effect should be also fast to notice.
If you get to have fear in the learning just draw
organic inanimate things because it's easier not to feel frustrated by failed attempts, like nature, trees and plants above all.

>> No.7139597

study hair individually, start with defining the shapes and then the details.
Also if you are one of those drawfags that like to define measurements and distances then sketching a better head will help because you can segment better the areas like the forehead and the side of the ears, so the hairs feels a lot more easy to draw because is like adding volume to the zone.

>> No.7139856

Only some people can learn how to draw, it's a skill that can't really be taught by just anyone. Drawing skills are most likely linked to something in the brain that's activated at a very young age, which can lie dorment for decades until you try drawing. People with this skill notice almost immediately that drawing isn't that hard, it's actually super easy, "why does other people struggle with this" they usually think to themselves.. heh, they just don't know they've been blessed with the very rare "Art-gene".

if you've been drawing for about 1-2 years already but can't seem to improve you've most likely, about 100%, don't have the "art-gene"

Like I dunno why I can't seem to draw as well when it's tired and late. I am constantly angry that I can't draw properly and things look flat and way more off than I think they should look.
Like I recognize it looks wrong but I am imagining you guys calling it a symbol drawing which I think makes it worse or something.

General rule of thumb - warmer light source = relatively cooler shadows, cooler light source = relatively warmer shadows
Because less blue light is able to get into your shadows, the shadows will be relatively warmer (or rather less blue) compared to the lit areas. This doesn't mean your shadows should be full-on crimson, just relatively less blue.
The exact color can depend on a lot of things - the object's local color, intensity of the light source, reflected light from other objects, what kind of rendering style you're going for, etc.

what? i mean >>7139725, is kind of true that a more pure water is better, but is because the ph of the water i think. On the other hand of course, of course if the tap water of your region is poorly prepared and is more hard of course could be more noticeable, i think also some people in the u.s had this mindset that tap water is bad for some reason, but probably they local water is worst so that could be, i dont know.
In most common countries the tap water should be ok because is not hard and not much prepared. But... yeah you could just test the shit if you want, just use a paper and make samples, one with your tap water, one with i dont know, bottle water, one with distilled water, and look.

are you really asking why you do things wrong when you are tired? should i answer as if you were a child?
Yes, your quality and focus is lowered when you are tired, like, in all you do, because your brain and muscles can work properly, because you are tired.
Solution = dont be tired.
How? plenty of ways but i recommend making exercise, at the beggining you will feel more tired, but in some weeks the energy boost of an improved body will make his magic.
What exercises? all of them, all are good: aerobic exercise to have more stamina and better brain oxygenation, anaerobic exercise to build muscle to have resistance; legs-glutes to not feel fatigue for hours of sitting, core and back to not feel back pain and secure posture, top and arms to have more draw stamin, and daily mandatory wrist-hand-finger exercises to not fall in the you know, those kind of pains,

I know that's a common tactic that goes well outside the sphere of art, but doing 5 minutes of a thing seems like such an insignificant commitment that i might as well not do it at all.

I also don't even have enough ability to doodle anything. I straight up can't draw a thing unless i just copy or do from reference. Even then it's pretty shitty.

You're building up the habit, which is the point. Obviously you should go further on the days when you're interested in drawing, but what I'm saying is to do /at least/ a couple doodles a day
>I also don't even have enough ability to doodle anything. I straight up can't draw a thing unless i just copy or do from reference. Even then it's pretty shitty.
Well you're new so that's to be expected. An exercise I heard about and remember doing when I was new was to pick some reference and try to draw that without ever looking down at the page. It helps you get over the expectations that hold you back.

right mindset but need more thinking, try to use those boxes in the pelvis

you have all the time, of your life, so dont worry just go at your pace. If you feel bored just draw some funny shit, dont have to be good just funny to you, you will said "haha this shit is so stupid" or something like that, and you will laugh, then that feeling will come out from the inside to call you to draw again, from that you will gain motivation. Also this answer is for >>7140193.
And yes, if you dont have any fun or possitive feeling in the process, you are fucked from the start. Is highly, highly, recommend work first in the psychological aspect because a good mental disposition basically does all the work, if you don't have it, life in this craft will be a martyrdom, and no one is interested in you being a drawing martyr, because that sounds stupid also.

The process of drawing itself is pretty fun, but i've never once been happy with the result yet and that's really what i'm after.
I'd rather have doing the work feel like shit and then get good results as opposed to how it is right now.

Anything you draw like that will end up looking fucked. It helps you, at least a little bit, get over the gulf between your skills and standards. Obviously don't do it for all drawings but do it a bit.

Sup begosis. Idk what is up, but it feels i am hardstuck. also fuck skulls. Also it is astonishing how you anons keep replying to howies who dont post their work.

people in 1980 didnt know how to do clean lines? or what is that style you talk about?
they all plus minus lead to the same destination. it is up to you if you prefer the one which just points you towards art books / video courses, or the one which tries to "summarize" whole craft into few pages of text and confusing illustrations. check out my own "sticky" while you are at it
drawing is mentally exhausting activity (unless you are doodling), dont expect it going well when you aren't in top form
you drew 6 figures per week? try 60
that is exactly how i am feeling lately
very nice and clever. speaking of art block, dont you have your own "TODO" draw folder? whenever i see something cool or clever i save it with grand idea of later using it as inspiration. but looking at my current drawing rate i will sooner die than deplete all shit i want to draw lmao

Im currently stuck at how to do the process of learning, do I go step by step, drawing anatomy but keeping myself to just getting the form until I get that part "right" and then move on to the next subject, or do I just go all in, and try whatever thing im trying at the moment, then lineart that, or shade/ink it, color it, do a background/foreground, put some perspective, have the drawing interact with something, etc. I feel like im getting the hang on anatomy while having zero knowdlege on the... literally everything else,
Im getting the itch to just download every single image that I find while browsing, and then trace/ draw a copy next to it while dissecting them in their component parts to understand their structure, which will not help to find a style, but I feel it will help me get the overall fundamentals well.

Don't people love it when somebody like Michael Jordan gets autistic and says "And that's when I took it personally." ?

But if some no-name fuckhead /beg/ incel starts getting autistic, and has nothing to show for it, he's just a loser. I have a stake in proving "that" entity wrong, even if the original people who crabbed me have moved on from this board, "that" thing which I'm referring to is a force of evil in this world, and by submitting my shit art here, and keeping track of previous crabs, I can affect some modicum of wholesomeness / positivity into the universe.

But don't ask me now because I still suck and have nothing to show for it, therefore, my argument is invalid.

That and I attribute my journey into drawing 100% to /ic/, and because of that, I owe all of /ic/ culture my life - the good and the bad of it.

Well you've developed more style than I ever have in my 1.5 years of drawing, and you can see how much bullshit I've drawn in this thread alone.

Besides the usual recommendation of more mileage / studies, whatever, the primary thing that fucks all aspiring artists up (for whatever reason) is that they all doubt themselves and hate their art, even though they all have 10x more talent than I ever did when I personally started out.

Sword is fucking huge, did she steal it from Sephirot?
Arms look a little weird, like im not sure what part of the right arm is the elbow, looks like she has two, since there are two protrusions that look like they could be the elbow, meanwhile the left arm seems to be about 10 cm longer than the right arm, once again im not sure what curve is supposed to be the elbow. The muscle circled in blue looks very unnatural. The left hand and the forearm seem to be joined but without the wrist, it''s lacking that annoying curve at the end of the forearm that makes it look like a wrist, if you were to just cut what's inside the yellow box, and bridge the gap between the hand and the forearm it would look more natural imo, same with the right forearm, which I believe should have ended at the point where the bracelet starts.
Last one it's just a nitpick since I dont know the character and it could be just the way she looks, is it me or is her head huge in comparison with the face? I recreated what I think would be the shape of the cranium and the dividing lines and to me it looks like the forehead and rest of the head is a tad bit too big. but once again, in this one I think that may be just me and she is supposed to look like that at all angles..

It was supposed to be a nodachi sword. Quite big
As far as arms go. Yeeeaa. . They are a bit weird.
I defined things that probably didnt need it.
Right Elbow(olecranon) is marked. The other bit is the boney protrusion of the humerus at the elbow is marked with blue
And brachioradialis is marked with br (blue)

Left arm is a tad loong. I eyeballed it , i shouldnt have
The weird muscle is supposed to be the medial triceps head. It dips next to the loecranon ( tendon starts there)
Hair is puffy so head appears bigg.
Major mistakes: imo are the overlydefined bulshit parts, and left arm too loong

Since the value, hue and saturation are all interlinked, you will have to mess with the values when you color it.

My main problem with watercolor is picking colors that match the value and are appealing for shadows, for example. Like, if I’m painting something white or white furred, that one in particular is a struggle. I like using purples and blues and pinks but it never quite feels right.

The painting I’m working up to now, the primary subject is a warm chocolate brown, but how should I shade is the question without just using a darker brown? My color theory is weak, but the intersection between color theory and watercolor is another level of difficulty I don’t know where to look to learn.

you could use a little more harder brush, in the, opacity, flow, whatever, i think should help you to have more refined things and work faster in the design of the image. If not you could just give it more time, from that starting to refine with a smaller brush some shapes, just a little while you feel comfortable

you could be be even more simple in the shapes also, i feel like you segment too much and that's break a little the dinamism of the figures, as you say, define less those muscles and the body will look more appealing, but little by little until you get the right amount and still making muscle girls if that's what you like.

Sorry, this is probably not the right place to ask this, but I couldn't find a better thread here. Are there any more boards besides /aco/, /d/ and /e/ that have color/edit threads?
Those wells are temporarily dry and I'm thirsty for art assignments. (I'm aware of /trash/, but I don't like furry, so)
I'm a bit picky on what I like to color or edit, so having more options available would be great. And someone actually wanting it done motivates me, so "just grab some random b/w, etc" is not really helpful.
