proportions nad measurements are off. if you want to practice shading/rendering, try tracing. Nothing wrong with that if you're using it as a tool to learn.

61 KB,
I'm looking for character designs where the designer simplified the skull and anatomy down to its bare essentials, and then contorted the shapes into strong, easy-to-read primitives that still appeal. Some examples I've found so far would be Disney during the 2000's, nearly anything Mignola has done, or Brad Birds work as well.

Is there anyone else /ic/ would recommend for simple, strong shapes and designs? (Disney's enormous empathy eyeballs not required.)

>>2388831
both 2000s Disney and current day "pure cancer" Disney make use of the exact same principles of stylization and shape design. Only difference between now and then is that it's being applied to 3D animation instead of hand drawn animation.

don't think to yourself that you're drawing a face, instead focus on drawing a ball, then a block underneath the ball.

google "symbol drawing" - this is what you need to quit doing. better lines and accuracy comes with practice.

Aside from looking at artists you want to support, any Patreon's out there who have artists willing to teach and actually provide some really good insight on how to approach certain methods?

I know there's a Patreon group under "Foundation", that's basically just Dynamic Sketching 1/2 but with more insight (so I guess you can say it's better than draw a box?)

Then there's Krenz who's an artists teacher that'll give you red lines on your work. He teachers anatomy in perspective.

Anyone else?

drawabox is actually supported through patreon, but none of the important information is behind a paywall. It's just a continuous donation drive. Still, I'd say that counts as being on Patreon.

Narrow field of view can work in porn. Joel Jurion and Milo Manara both often use it and get great results. It depends on the how it is used and what it is being used for. Try out both narrow and wide fov's in different situations to discover the benefits of each!

Also check your proportions - head feels small and arms feel thin.

Ok, let me see if I can TLDR the sticky to something more competent:

Firstly, Draw what you see, not what you think you see. Draw the actual shapes, not what your brain says the shapes look like.

Think of said shapes you just drew as 3D objects, shade accordingly.

Study forms such as still life, figure drawings, follow steps 1 and 2, rinse, repeat.

Am I right so far? Or am I going to get like, "drawing shapes is symbol drawing" or some shit.

I have a problem, /ic/.

I just can't finish art.

I have the requisite skill for all the bits and pieces, but I can never find the patience to put them together. After drawing one thing, my brain just sort of shuts down and moves on like a tape clicking to the next track.

It's something that even Adderall, in it's infinite focus, couldn't bull though. I spent so many years doing simple, repetitive doodles that I'm permanently stuck in the same mindframe; the same mode.

So how do I re-teach myself? Every conscious effort thus...

I'm afraid your answer doesn't make much sense, anon.

The deficiency isn't one of technical skill, but of patience or habit.

I'll undoubtedly continue to improve. Some day I may be able to render an eye perfectly.

But I'd like to be able to draw the whole person. And the room around the person. And fully shade it. And fully color it.

If, as you say, that no art is finished merely abandoned, then my trouble is that I abandon it very quickly.

I should reiterate, perhaps, that in theory I should be able to render complete pieces. As I said, I have the necessary skill.

The trouble is that if, for a few minutes I draw an eye, and then stop, I never learned how to continue. I can sketch a face, and at a certain point my mind will think "this is done." And if I wish to go back and add to it, I simply don't know how. The part of my brain working with visual organization doesn't quite grasp the idea of continuity - it just works...

Do hand stretches for carpal tunnel prevention every hour or so when drawing. It's good to take breaks anyway.

There was a hand exercise going around saying to hold your thumb inside your fist and angle your wrist down to stretch that muscle (forget the name). Don't do that.
