you can only draw terribly to know why you're terrible and that translates into getting better

by that logic, it sounds like you don't have the mindset so drop it already

The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried- Adolf Hitler

I have been drawing/inking and painting since I was a kid. I'm in my 20s now, and I've realized that I am merely a photocopy machine. I draw what I see, but everything always seems a bit... off. I believe this is because I haven't studied the foundations. I think the subjects in my art have no weight to them, and often proportions are off. I also have a problem drawing from the mind, the things I create from nothing tend to suffer the same fate but worse. I am thinking of purchasing a book to help self study and have narrowed it down to four options:

>narrowed it down to four options

No. Instead, you're gonna read all 4, and continue on from there.

Instead, read them up in a certain order.
Start with Michael Hampton and Bridgman's book at the same time, going back and forth. Then read up on Classic Human anatomy. Then finish up with Loomis' book Figure Drawing for All It's Worth.

However, once you're done with all 4, you basically just started. Where to go from there is up to you. The book section has great recommendations.

>>2480197
For a book focused on figures, I like Hampton's book. It doesn't get as bogged down in measurements and anatomy. It focuses on feeling the forms, and gesture and weight. It focuses more on the basic foundations I guess, the most important stuff. So I think it's best to start with.

Loomis' books are great too though, and touch on placing figures in a scene, perspective, composing shots, that sort of thing. A little in the book you listed, more in the "Successful Drawing" book.

Bridgeman's...

>>2468597
On a tablet, if you move the pen really fast, you might get a straighter line than usual.

It also might be because you're drawing on PS and a tablet. If you draw slowly in PS, you get jittery lines.

What program are you using?

since he turned into a filthy photobasher.

Can't really blame him, desu. Dude used to spend 200 hours on a single illustration and didn't use fucking references. If he found something he couldn't draw out of his head, he'd stop the illustration and study that thing until he could. At least so he says. Pretty cool if you think about it, but utterly unsustainable if you're trying to support yourself on your art.

I'm creating an original tattoo that I will get soon on my arm. The tattoo has two symbolic meanings 1) the day, month, year section you would find on any sort of document or form. 2) my name has a double M, and of my two brothers, their names are spelt one with double D and the other double Y.

I was thinking this would be a simple tattoo, kinda basic with the date area left blank.
I have a few (bad) drafts and would like very much for anyone to cretique my design or share any ideas. I am not much of an artist, this is the best I can come up with.

Why do people commit to photorealistic pencil drawings?

Isn't art supposed to be a way to express how you see things in the world? With the skill level these people have they can be making way more interesting things.

>>2479225
Because it's actually the only thing they can do with "the skill level these people have".

Copying a photo is a specialised skill, for which you don't need the huge amount of knowledge and experience you need to be able to draw something from your imagination.

So these people get stuck doing this because it's the only remotely impressive thing they can do.

Normies will think that drawing is more impressive and skillfull than anything by Milt Kahl. Detail and photorealism = good. To be fair, /ic/ falls for this quit a lot as well.
