READ THE STICKY if you need guidance when you haven't even started

Sticky: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uwaXKU7ev6Tw_or__o8ARpUb6r2rCZYJGqwSFV9AD98/edit#bookmark=id.15jx3pyuimvj

TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

REMEMBER, if you've just started out you work will not be good, it doesn't need to be, just get in to the swing of actually drawing, and learning how to study. Most of all, enjoy it.

"For the guy in the last thread
>>3625917
Anon, first let me apologize for the redline, I drew a figure directly over yours, but the app I'm using lost the layer some how.

Your issue is a lack of knowledge on how things exist and look in space. On top of this you've chosen to draw your figure at an angle that is usually pretty flat looking no matter who draws it; a direct side view. While there should be volume in your figure no matter what angle you draw from, some angles excentuate depth more than others. The best way to create the illusion of depth is through converging diagonal lines, you've chosen a pose without many of those. Even just rotating her slightly to make more of her front or back show would give you more of the volume you are looking for. You also need to remember that everything has a top, a side, a bottom, etc. This is the reason why geometric shapes are such good practice for beginners and why fruits and bowls make for a good introduction to still life. You need to under stand how these basic forms are constructed, then you need to understand how they can interact and intersect with each other in a manner that is logical and consistent with everything around them. Diagonal lines should stay consistent with those around them, but constantly keeping this all in mind can be difficicult. This is why it's important to drill those geometric shapes into your mind through lots of studying, so that creating them and keeping their angles consistent relative to the objects and forms around it becomes second nature, freeing you to focus on the things that are more fulfilling about drawing. If you give up, that's up to you, but if you want to get better, you need to grind through the boring parts."

OP, I don't want to call you a faggot but you really fucked me in the ass on this one.
The evidence speaks for its self...

>>3628664
Let me try to put it another way. Drawing is a lot like sculpting, at least it is when you are trying to draw things
that look like they have volume and take up space. Drawing should feeling like your carving or sculpting a the
figure, adding and removing pieces of the material as you sculpt. The material in this case are the basic blocks
and forms that you construct in your initial drawing/sketch. Your eraser is just as much of a tool for sculpting the
figure as your pen.

Sculptures also take up space in 3 dimensions. A lot of times it looks like beginners only consider the space a
drawing takes up along the vertical and horizontal axis of the physical page, but it is your job as a draftsmen to
create the illusion of the non existent Z axis of your page. This is done through the use of horizontal lines like
on a perspective grid and through "blocking" out your forms. It's not cryptic advice or anything, it really is as
simple as it sounds, just follow the lines. If you've read anything on drawing and perspective you already know
that, you already understand that, it's intuitive, its how your eyes. The problem is are you really taking into
account how the current line you draw falls logically, relative to your 1st line or your 576th line? Are you doing
this for every single line, for every single form that you make? Are you really thinking it that far through?
Personally that shit is exhausting, that's why you have to drill geometric shapes until its second nature.

Try drawing some blocky cars or something. My favorite is the Model T."

I’m going to be blatantly honest with you man, your Loomis studies look better than your Bridgman studies. Your work using Loomis’ methods look a lot cleaner than what you’re making with Bridgman. I’m not saying you shouldn’t study Bridgman, he’s one of my favorites to study and I remember being completely captivated by his drawings and ability when I first saw his work, but he’s trying to teach very specific things about certain parts of the body with his drawings. It looks like your being overwhelmed by the information Bridgman is giving you, compared to the simplified overview Loomis gives in his books.

I like to think of it like writing. Bridgman is trying to teach you vocabulary, showing you different words and their meanings so that you can better describe what you are trying to state in your writing. Loomis on the other hand is trying to just straight up show you the basics of sentence construction so you can begin to write a sentence that is coherent and overall makes sense, even if it isn’t all that captivating. You still need to learn how to construct the sentence before you move on to injecting flowery vocabulary in to your work."

That's just meant to be a point he makes, that drawing from memory is shitty because your memory is shitty, you need to draw what you see and not what you think something looks like.

Yeah I know what you mean, but I actually like Bridgman more, he’s got a special place in my heart. I found his work when I was just getting a handle on drawing and it completely changed the way I looked at drawing and construction. For a long time my professors would tell me “I’m glad you’re studying Bridgman but I’d like to see a bit more of you in your work as well”.

They were just teaching for different audiences, you know? Bridgman was teaching to trained students at the Art Students League. By the time he was teaching these people they had all their basics down, or at least most of them. His books are compilations put together by his students using sketches and diagrams he made in their intermediate level classes. Loomis on the other hand was a commercial illustrator writing books that were to be published for the consumption of the general public. He had to structure his teachings for the lowest common denominator in order to maximize sales. His work was intentionally structured to teach the very basic foundations of drawing."

Sounds good to me. Remember to practice the fundamentals. Set up some still life’s for yourself. Maybe order some wooden toys for toddlers off amazon (I’m serious) like blocks, cylinders, and balls. Set them up in different ways and draw them. Fundies are boring but once you learn them you can combine them to make cool shit.

Treat learning how to draw the same way you would treat a history class. A big part of drawing well is basically just you showing that you have an understanding about how something works at a granular level, you can’t do that if you’ve never studied how something works, how it’s individual parts work, and how their interactions among each other work to make up the whole. They are called “studies” for a reason, you’re trying to learn information and by copying in the same way you would try to learn information in a history class by taking notes.

I’m not too big of a fan of drawing on the right side of the brain, but it’s not completely useless. I think Loomis, Vilpu and fundimentals are more important.

Good luck, post your work in the other thread, remember to sage in this thread."

Okay so here's the deal. Anime, Manga, Cartoons, etc. - All of those are stylized. If you're gunna draw that sort of thing, you need to understand why things are stylized in the way that they are. As a beginner, it'll be a bit tough for you to grasp that concept without knowing realism first. Stylization is literally the simplification/idealization of realism. It's not impossible for someone to be able to grasp stylization properly without a solid foundation in realism, but it's not easy.

Most people who try to do what you do often get stuck in a weird sort of limbo where they can mimic one style but literally can't draw anything more realistic or simplistic than that. They're forever stuck copy catting another style because they don't understand why the artist did what they did to stylize in the first place."

Your rendering is quite awkward. Don't paint piece by piece or else you get mushy values. Simplify the forms and block in the major values first. Establish your shadows, lights, and mids clearly.

I've just started on Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain myself, and the drawing of my brother from memory looks nothing like him, has a symbol nose that looks utterly ridiculous, got my eyes from the self-portrait plastered on, and I messed up the head shape so much the drawing looks like a butch lesbian instead.

If you really want to do it you can use geometry to help yourself.
-Draw a no perspective figure from the side, for example, place a dot (point of view) somewhere to the side of it and draw lines from this dot to some of the key areas of the human body - top of the head, chin, belly button, groin, knees, feet.
-Draw a line perpendicular to the one that goes to the groin.
-Now note on it where your previous lines intersect it.
-Measure, preferably without any actual instruments, just by hand, the size of head projection on that line and compare it to projections of the other body parts.

Here are your heads. But this method pretty bad if your point of view is pretty far from your figure. Still it probably can allow you to get some understanding of how you need to modify your drawing."

Read widely, only apply one thing at a time. Rendering form and value in perspective are the fundamentals, looking at how other artists do it and applying it consistently is how you improve. It doesn't matter so much what you read as much as how well you apply it.

The biggest failing I see on here and in very expensive art major programs is that newfags don't look at art or draw from life. They can draw a box but can't render a house. They completely lack markmaking ability and any sense of aesthetics because they don't look at art.

There is no best or fastest way, but at this point I'm convinced you'd improve more quickly than most assholes if you pirated Peter Han's course, learned some perspective tricks, and went out sketching rocks, trees, buildings, and whatever with the intent to apply what you learned looking at an old dead guy's sketches.

Good job anon, nice to see you using a grid to measure and get a sense where things should be placed within your picture plane. I see a few areas where you may have messed up your angles and lines (handle of the kettle, bottom of the kettle). A few things are still coming out as flat looking, like the handle of the tea cup, the handle of the spoon and the saucer under the cup. Try putting the objects into boxes to help you get a sense of their volume in terms of depth, and yeah push the values of your shading further. Try keeping the direction of the lines you use for shading more consistent, or better yet have the shading follow the contour of the object to help accentuate their form. Good job, on to the next one."

if you're measuring in heads, and the head appears smaller when viewed from a different angle, then when a pose changes it also would appear smaller from different angles.

if you tilt the head in the same way you're tilting a given piece of a pose, then that will give you a closer approximation.

the circles are only the same size in a straightforward standing pose because the whole body is viewed at the same angle as the head you're using to measure with."

Make the build line perpendicular to the groin line, not the horizon line. Basically turn it to the left more. In this case your head projection on it would be larger while other projections will become smaller.

You'll get a little over 5 heads for the total figure and can see where all the key points go on the red line."

You tell me

Btw, doing a line drawing based off of photographs or full value paintings of faces is a bad idea if you want to get likeness, accuracy etc.
The reason is context. A value range photo is a lot of context. Different shades of gray telling you exactly what the fuck is going on.
Converting that to lines is removing context. You are using less context, so the context you use have to be deadly accurate so it reads as likeness or accurate.
If you were to paint this in in grayscale, even if you are slightly off it will read pretty good. Just keeping it lines, it looks like shit in comparison.
So you should rather do block ins and landmarks with lines, then go straight to painting a value range using the block in as a guide. Or just block in with values to begin with since it's digital."

You could try setting the grayscale to multiply and adding color beneath, or putting and overlay layer overtop and painting on that.

The key is to get good color transitions throughout the form, and between the light and dark areas. You're never going to get a perfect color with just one color, especially with something as complex as skin. You're going to want a nice mix of reds, light tan, and maybe even some green or blue here are there.

That's just one method though, and the one I generally follow. Keep experimenting."

Eh don't listen to the other anons here telling you to perfect these heads before moving on. You can't perfect these heads till you improve your general drawing skill, which takes a long time. You have the basic grasp of it already, just move on to the next thing. Ribcage and pelvis and the relationship between is a good place to go. Then you may want to do a bit of gesture. And then study basic anatomy to try to create a semblance of a realistic figure. After that, maybe you'll be ready to start adding features to your heads in perspective.

It's okay if they look simple and /beg/ rn. You will revisit them many more times and each iteration will improve. But don't get stuck fixating on one area too long. Just keep studying."

Hard to say. Even absolute beginners differ in skill level. Some are able to draw well from the beginning, others not so, and need time to build the drawing dexterity and ability to copy what they see. So if you're the latter, you may spend the first couple months just getting a basic grasp of copying. Only then can you move on to figure drawing, and getting to this level of drawing would take maybe 3 months or more with only an hour a day. That's if you know what you're doing or are following a reliable guide. If you mean rendering, it can take much longer than that. Rendering is awful but they have a working grasp of basic figure drawing, and value/form."

Nice work anon, you may get some trolling for rendering over some flaws, but you did good. Good lighting, you got the pose down well, nice stylized face, etc.

On to the criticism. You rendered over a bunch of flaws that you should have fixed, and that makes it come across as over rendered to cover up mistakes. You really got lazy on the foot and because you got lazy on that, it makes it look like your avoiding hands even if this was from a photo ref. Personally I think the one texture on the sweater looks slapped on, like a clipping mask, adding to that lazy sort of feel you got going. Finally, that background with the blur filter is just plain half assed, even without the blur it looks like a total after thought.

Good work, try harder."

Not bad anon, keep it up, but no excuses on the chicken scratch. This whole board is full of cancer, you don’t get a pass.

The hands could use some work, but you’re not avoiding them, so that’s good. Over all she actually looks like she has some volume and form, you’re on the right track. The face could be more appealing, maybe imply the lips with shading instead of outlining. Same thing with the bridge of the nose and nostrils, women should be drawn with a softer touch. The hair is wonky, work on that, try the ribbon method (look up: ribbon secret Gurney journey). The anatomy is off in a few places but not terrible, you got the lats down well. I don’t think her lower half would twist that much, the pectorals tuck under the deltoid, it looks the other way here. Don’t you think you’d see the underside of her jaw from that angle?

Someone beat me to the pectoral issue, ha. I did this doodle to practice anatomy from the top of my head and red lined what I feel I was seeing odd. The biceps line, I dunno, I went to pose myself on the mirror and you might see that line if you are tensing but the biceps would make a less straight line, comes more like towards you holding the arm like that. That line makes it feel like the biceps goes upward, which is odd to my eyes.
The leg, I moved it forward to balance, else I feel like she is falling down with the torso pushing so much forward.
Overall I like it anon, I would make the hands a bit more feminine.

Oh, you had a reference >>3636511.

The ref has the breast area a bit better, the biceps is still an issue to my eyes, but the legs come a bit more straight, yours have them a tad more tilted. I still fill on that ref like she is falling a bit towards the front but maybe that is intended, yours the effect is stronger, she comes a lot more diagonally.

Keep constructing. If likeness is the issue, you will have to measure more thoroughly, macro to micro so to speak. Otherwise, stick with symmetry and construct an aesthetically pleasing head from your reference. If it looks good, who cares if it's the same girl as in the photo?"

Scratchy lines. Do the draw-a-box line exercises for 10 mins a day. Try to be more confident in your lines. Do them in sweeps rather than small segments. Don't scribble your hatching.

Always draw the construction first when drawing the head. Shading comes after. Try the Loomis method. Lastly, it may help to build consistency if you have a routine or a plan of study. It seems you're heads are drawn aimlessly, which is fine for doodling before work. Try to set aside proper practice time though, and have a purpose and a focus to your practice sessions, so you can learn more efficiently."

Hmm, I'm not understanding if you want to capture the likeness of someone or just use them as a reference.
I'm pretty bad at likeness but I tried to do an impression of someone. You basically want to think like someone who makes caricatures, you want to look at a person and get their impression, what you feel about them makes them stand out, and then exaggerate it.
It comes with practice, and again I'm terrible at it, but you don't really measure as much as feel. So perspective wouldn't be an issue.

If you can get used to do that, then it's only a matter of how nuanced your changes are.
Also, it's pretty tough to get likeness just with lines, you usually need form, and for that you need to need to use values more than lines.

If you are copying something exactly as you see it, then yeah, measure it carefully. If not, feel it."

It is very off everywhere. That's just gonna be how it is since it looks like you're just getting used to drawing. Can you post some more work so we can see where exactly your at?

There's no sense of anatomy or mass to your figure. You're only thinking about the outline in 2d, so it looks hollow and flat. Think of figure drawing like stacking 3d blocks. Each part has mass and is pushing up on the other creating a sense of weight.

Practice construction with cubes and cylinders and learn to build your figures rather than outlining them. Then do gesture and study a bit of anatomy."

It can be very personal. In digital I really enjoy using certain colors for sketching as opposed to black. Steve Huston uses brown conte and a lot of artists just get preferences that work better for them.
