>>106455015
That's actually a great place to start. Everything is just lines, just focus on that for a while, don't get too caught up with details- that comes later. Try finding a subject that interests you and try to draw it in 5 minutes. Constantly look at your subject (most people try to remember everything once and very seldomly glance back at the subject) and never fill in blanks using memory. After 5 minutes, stop and evaluate.

Do you think learning how to draw properly will stifle your creativity or something? Do you think learning engineering will get in your way of becoming an inventor?
>>
>>106457474
It's better to have someone who can evaluate it for you but if not, just remember the point of quick sketches is to drill that the "shape" is the most crucial thing and the backbone to every drawing. Like your hand sketches for example, focus on the structure first and don't rely too much on shading. Observe your fingers for example, they're not just straight lines right? Just keep repeating the same exercise, using the same subject until you see changes (or better if someone can actually critique you) and then, move from the form to the details then to finishing the drawing. Oh and it's better if you try various ways to draw first and see what you're comfortable with (i personally like a looser grip to create more fluid lines)

Oh sorry I misread it then, it sounded that way.
Either way learn things by the book, do some practice and gesture drawing but don't get caught up in the "grinding" thing, if you go on >>>/ic/ you'll see a lot of people stuck in that forever grinding phase.
Keep drawing things you like and use the books and exercises as a resource to fix problems you encounter.

You really only need 2 books
- How to Draw by Scott Robertson for perspective, read it over and over until you understand what it says
- A book on life drawing, either Loomis' Figure Drawing for All It's Worth, Hampton's Design and Invention, or Bridgman's Complete Drawing from Life. Any of these is good, only get the one you understand the best and stick with it.
You can go a very long way with just these 2 books, there are other resources for light and rendering and other things, but for the time being just focus on drawing volumes in perspective. Draw everyday objects too and sketch people a lot, you don't have to have a super neat sketchbook, even if you see someone's hand resting on a counter and you find it interesting try to take 20 seconds to sketch it and understand the forms, always try to feel the form of things.

"artist" is putting it lightly.

Hi Greg.

>>106453713
I'm currently writing this post.
>>
>>106451942

Like all forms of art, it requires practice, dedication, and refinement.

Very, very few people can just pick up a pen or sit at a keyboard or behind a camera and draw beautiful things, write a good novel, or shoot a quality movie.

Practice your heart off at whatever you wish to achieve. It's never too late to start and any limitations you think you have are just mental blocks because you're afraid of failing.
Keep at it and never give up. Start simple and work your way up.

Also, stop holding your pencil so hard.

There is a metric fuck ton more out there.
My advice is to try and learn more about Color palettes, Value and Composition not just from artists but from Photography people as well (B&H as a lot of lectures by photo pros on composition and how values are important)
Even Makeup gurus on youtube will talk about how makeup and color theory are important.

p.s
Im trying to find a lectures by a guy who goes through the physics of color and shows you how to paint accurate clouds and accurate lakes and explains why they look the way they do. Ill keep searching and post it here if i find it.

>Squint Test
The easiest way to check if your composition is working right and too see if colors are ruining comp.
Squint or make an effect layer that will give the same effect then take notice of what sticks out (brighter more saturated colors and contrasting shapes/colors will draw the most attention)
Try this on art to get a better idea of how other people handle Values.
You can also turn everything to Grayscale to check values and see if your edges and shapes are on point BUT...

What NOT to do. Draw individual features: a mouth, an eye, etc.
The right way is to rough in the figure as spheres, cubes, and cylinders. THEN and only then do you start adding human details.

Try books by Andrew Loomis. Old, but still unsurpassed.

I really don't like recommending Hampton to beginners. He frames his stuff as being for people relatively new to drawing, but he's actually for people like >>106456916 who already know how to draw but have a shaky understanding of form. Loomis is much, much better for people starting from the basics.

>What NOT to do. Draw individual features: a mouth, an eye, etc.
It's a bit different for anime style faces, since the features only have a very loose correlation to an actual 3 dimensional shape. The only real way to learn how to draw anime faces is to copy drawings until you get a feel for it.

i feel you OP. besides lurking here, /v/, /a/, and /trash/ i also lurk /ic/. because of my ocd im retarded with doing things to the letter. i believed what a couple of niggas on /ic/ claimedfor and tried doing certain books in strict order so i wont be /beg/inner level.

my short attention span for certain things in books like Keys to Drawing or Fun with a Pencil prevented me from finishing them, illiciting some ridicule from some people there. ssome on /ic/ claim im retarded FOR believing the strict mymbo jumbo in the first place.

the fear also lead to me procrastinating a lot.
currently working through michael hamptons design and invention which seems to really appeal to me, as well as me actually learning more things.

trying to git gud so that mid april i can publish a comic in my community college's nespaper, i'll let you guys know how that works out in the future.

If your gonna go with the japanese manga style, go with the old manga artists that look up American illustrators from the 1890s to 1970s to avoid getting the bad parts of emulating manga style. Japanese manga artists tezuka/that castlevania guy/bastard/berserk/shirow just emulate what they liked from mc escher/kay nielsen/gibson girls artist.

The obvious innovation of jap comics is their adaptation of basic filmography into comic pages making panels dynamic. Japs also expanded on comics iconography of the west particularly on jap manga faces and expression. Elaborate use of background sound effects too.

No worries anon, I started as a guy who drew like his hands were broken and my imagination was almost 100% shit.
I was hoping I'd one day be good enough to draw cool things like what I saw in my mangos and funny books, and you know what?
Now I am, I can draw porn, manga, comics, the works, all thanks to being diligent and not giving up when I really wanted to kill myself for being terrible.
Hang in there anon, if I could do it you can do it.

I think I'm alright. I'm not good, never claimed to be good. I think I got anatomy down a bit but my drawings are very stiff and lifeless (even when I try to make them more fluid). Also, my drawings are very simplistic and flat. I think drawing is fun but that's as far as I go with it. I never show anyone my drawings because I know they're not impressive. Its alright though, I'm more of an editor than anything else. I'm pretty good at that and I can say that with confidence.
