You took so many liberties that it's difficult for me to crit, being beg tier myself. To me the posing feels kinda stiff and weightless. The ball is not pushing against her torso at all, and you've straightened out all curves and dulled the dynamics in the ref (the way the left arm pushes away from the torso, the positioning of the legs). You've basically changed the pose completely and I can't say I dig it. Again though, it's so stylized and different from the ref that it's tough to judge.

Cool ref though, gave it a quick shot myself. I think I did fairly decently on the body (correct me if I'm wrong), but how do I draw faces that, /ic/?

There is a shadow under the hat that covers part of his face. Also. Under the chin. The shading is different. You could probably thicken the shading and go with a father value. You can also shade the whole face a bit more and erase the highlights. The left nostril looks a bit long.

Pretty good attempt, though still in a really early stage.
I think what's wrong with the eyes is that they're too big and bugly, they should be a bit smaller and sitting further in the eye-sockets.
Ear is too small and eyebrows are too rounded, though I guess that depends on if you want to take it down a more stylized route.
Also It's hard to tell but I get the impression you're afraid of putting down line/ comitting.

I don't think the bend of the spine is that bad, the torsos just seem a little streched.
The distance between the figures is too much and trying to work with that leaves the interaction awkward.

File: 686 KB, 1724x1000, Some anon's gestures.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

I found gesture drawing very hard, and the reason was because I was trying to be very accurate with each line. But that isn't the point of gesture sketches, the point is to understand the flow (yes?), and the more simpistic the more understandable the sketch is. Hence why pic related (some guy from the last thread) looks good, but more busy, complex sketches look bad.

Is practicing the flow from a reference basically useless if i'm redrawing that reference? I can see why it is very useful when coming up with my own drawings.

Should I be doing separate reference and gesture/flow practices every day, or does the former include the latter?

Also like it says in the original image, copying from other artists makes you seem a 100 times better than you really are.

Quick question

Are Tablets always this fucking unreliably shitty no matter how much money you spend on them?

In the last two years I've spent more time trying to get Tablets working, Software working, Operating System working, and of course get my hands on a Tablet that actually works out of the box, than actually drawing fucking anything. I'm talking literal afternoons of troubleshooting to get a two hour painting session before an update which breaks everything again following week.

I've owned Wacom and Huion, and used Linux and Windows. Neither worked properly in windows because drivers. Huion can't make working drivers, and Microsoft can't make an operating system without a dozen "helpful" built-in "features" that break all 3rd party firmware. Linux can't make software that doesn't involve me getting involved in the development's bug tracking while it's community tries to gaslight me about what is or isn't more stable on my own fucking personal computer.

If I sold both my Wacom and Huion, does ANYBODY make tablets that actually WORK OUT OF THE BOX with Windows 10?

But at least it was possible. Doing the same for Windows would require a time machine and a gun

No shit. Standardized walled-garden hardware

>Wacom's drivers suck dick. Huion's is much better.

I literally spent weeks trying to get a Huion tablet to work on ANY computer (Two desktops, two laptops), with everything from registry edits to getting a replacement

WACOM by comparison only required me to completely delete and reinstall all drivers and reboot several times until it worked... until the next time it went to sleep or hibernate or rebooted at which point it would quit working and I'd have to do it all again

No shit, the only computer the WACOM worked on was an ancient HP laptop... but because it was an HP laptop there was literally only one version of the graphics drivers that wouldn't BSOD, and one fateful day Windows quit working with that version

Have you ever worked in IT? Printers are what these remind me of, but they don't even have moving parts. I've had refurbished Seagate HDD's more reliable.

You area beginner but that is okay. The hero here is falling over to the left, his body also gets progressively smaller as you go down towards the feet. His feet is noticeably way too small compared to the rest of the body. His hands are also too big and have a bit of sausage fingers. The legs are uneven tubes have no definition of knees or muscles, the kneepads are not beside each other either.

I would advise that you practice on anatomy of the figure and perspective more in general for better standing poses. While working take frequent breaks to let your mind empty itself, put your picture up against something then stand up and look at it from further away. Looking at it from further away, especially after you stopped looking at it non stop for a long time will help you notice your mistakes.

On poses try this video as a start but youtube has many tutorial videos on this.

>> No.4107153

It's easier to work bigger. Like, really big. I work at like 5000x5000 because when you zoom in your stuff doesn't start to pixelate. Draw at like 25% zoom, and once you wanna get down to the nitty gritty, go 100%. Lines are still crisp and easy.

I know I'm posting at peak dead hours, but what the fuck am I doing wrong with these 60 second gesture drawings? I've watched the first part of Michael Hampton's Analytical Figure drawing and read the first chapter of the book, I've also watched the Steve Huston videos and read the beginning of his book as well and I also watched and drew along with Vilppu's timed model drawing video.

I know you guys probably get posts like this all the time and gesture drawing is about the "feeling" so, you either just "feel" it or you don't until you understand it and then it makes sense, so, I understand if no one wants to comment but I would really appreciate it.

if you want to start stepping up gestures and making them look better you gotta study some anatomy so you can recognize and emphasize specific important curves and landmarks in a jiffy: you see these if you watch people who are really good doin them. shit like the curve of the deltoid, the iliac spine, the creases where someone is bending, the places where the ribcage sticks out, etc etc

Very happy because I was in a rut for at least a year until recently.. I'm really enjoying it!

Having trouble finishing pieces (beyond this point essentially) - finer details are hard for me. I am also aware that it looks good to the uninitiated but scrubby and confused to artfags - I want better brush economy, I want to be 'painterly' but right now I'm blissfully happy just being able to get to this point considering how stuck I was this last year!

Contrast. Convert the image to black and white and look at his values. His are much more contrasy than your copy - you have more mid tones in the ground plane, which changes the dynamics of the piece.

>> No.4107385

There's nothing wrong with these, relax. Gesture is simple forms, that indicate movement or flow, and aren't finished drawings. You've accomplished that.
Now remember this moving onto more finished drawings. The point of gesture is so you can use your ability to see the flow of a body. That's it. You're ready to move up.

>> No.4107389

For learning, work big. Give yourself as much space and pixels as you can get. I really only make specific canvas sizes when i know the final size, like for a commission or at work. For that, I always work x2 the final print/display size.
And, balance that with what your computer can handle - large FX brushes will bog down any computer, so like the other anon said, 5k x 5k is a good size to work on. Enough pixels so you won't have any pixelations, but it won't kill your machine.

I remember the guy who said that /ic/ is easy to troll responded to reposting a portrait he did earlier in that thread and as /beg/ as I am, at least I don't make fun of /ic/ and claim that my art is good when it's chock full of symbol drawing (at least that's what I remember the portrait in question looking like).

By any chance, did you happen to post this infographic? I saved it for the sake of preserving any and all critique I get from my work whenever I post it here so I can study and learn from it. As harsh as you were in it, you were genuinely honest with your criticisms, which I wholeheartedly appreciate.

Yes it is. You barely understand forms, your values are almost non-existent and anatomy is not present.

Before going into colour you may want to try some hatching or grayscale. Personally I would suggest hatching as it would not only teach you to do values properly but also will up your line control.

>> No.4107815

Bro, everything can be called a /beg/ regardless what it is. It is fine to be insecure we all have insecurities about our performance, so do not worry. Progress in art is almost impossible to quanity thus looking for some kind of benchmark on what is /beg/ and what is not /beg/ is fools gamble because you can ask a 100 people and they will all give you a different answer.
By definition nothing is perfect thus and anything everything can be improved upon by some way as soon as you found something similar and decided that the other thing is better for whatever reason. I am sure you have had some that was used as inspiration

Not sure myself but I am inclined to agree with what >>4107815 says.

About your actual work, (take it with a grain of salt, this is from /beg/ to /beg/,)
I think the general proportions seem to be fine, though the figures right arm might be a little far away from he torso and not properly attached from this perspective if you visualize the figure without that shoulderpad. Move it a little closer next time. The characters left thigh also attaches a little weirdly, connect the upper part of it to the pelvis properly next time so they edge doesn't look like it's sticking out.

Concerning the lines, they are a little muddy and have too inconsistent thickness. The black contour lines don't properly connect like with the characters left thigh, right hand and left elbow, as well as the neck. With you are gonna have a black outline go all the way and don't leave out parts like elbow and neck.

Also, give the hand more detail and try to draw the knuckles properly. You have to start drawing them someday, better start early than late.

You have to make some seperation to the bangs and back of the hair. Also adding different width and hairs here and there will make it lookn3d. You can show part of the ear or angle it in a way so not only does it become a 3D but it allows you to add shadows that dont look unnecessary.

That really makes me think about his design. Never thought about that about his eyes, especially considering his main inspiration, Pajama Sam. It kind of throws me off now that I think about it, cus Sam never had an actual hairline, let alone forehead. As for his concept, now that I think of it, yeah it's kinda bleh and generic. Especially since I never went on about his personality, cus then I'd be getting ahead of myself by not focusing on the design aspect (somewhat ironic considering his bland design lol)

Try some random character generators for prompts, or just doodle around, the slightiest change can turn a character into something vastly different, i might get lynched for this, but you don't need to construct everything, only maybe some of the most basic stuff, you can even try drawing random shapes, adding features and shit. a fundamental part of character design is to try different approaches for the same character, and see what sticks for a final design.
Well, if he's copying from a photo, yeah, he should strive for proper anatomy, but i don't think that when it comes to cartooning, that there are any written rules (aside from Preston Blair, and Disney) it's not compulsory to do proper construction and to imitate reality to the letter. i mean, the grandma from the Triplets of Belleville i posted above has her eyes on her literal forehead, and she looks perfectly fine.

>> No.4108454

As far as a fighting stance is concerned having the legs further apart for stability is a good idea, you are overdoing it however and it looks more like he's about to drop down into a full-on split.
Also he's facing to the left while the rest of his body is going right, when fighting someone you generally face them with your entire being.
Think more about what exact setting you want, like is he in a duel? A larger battle? Fighting a dragon? Commanding troops? That's gonna make it easier to come up with an appropriate pose.
It's by no means a bad drawing your proportions, lines and shapes are pretty good. You're definitely getting there man.

If you're serious about imitating his style of busy sketches, he rarely if ever makes them random. Every sketch has its own thing it says as a whole. That should be said with just about everything you draw, even if it's conveying the most basic thing it will still have more value than randomness saying nothing. At least that basic conveyance can be interpreted uniquely by the individual.

Good shit dude, soon you'll be able to make faces without physically drawing the box, go to the KJG figure course thread, download those videos you'll have a better understanding of drawing the head and face in a permanent medium like ink, which will help you a lot, I also recommend looking into anatomy, and going back to gesture assuming you've already studied gesture in the past. It's something that if you don't constantly revisit in your early stages you'll lose it. I also personally found it helpful when I started anatomy, then revisited gesture

Yeah Bridgman is fun to study m8, he has nice sketches to look at, explains everything very well, the figure drawing book is laid out in a very strategic way that allows you to kind of slide into everything, and you practice mark making and eyeballing at the same time, great stuff.

Ok, I'm getting a bit frustrated. For over two years I did the book on Drawing from the left side of the brain, keys to drawing, the one on perspective, beginner Loomis, figure Loomis and recently Hampton. I can pretty much draw photo-realistically when I draw based on a picture. Have learned to draw on a tablet in the meantime.

But when I try to make up my own pose it just looks weird. Building a mannequin also feels kind of unnatural. I also get that you should practice dynamic poses but some artists can also make an upright pose look appealing as well. How does gesture pull into that?

What should I focus on right now? Practice just construction and poses without focusing on the details? Do it based on photos, drawings or just imagination?

Hi. I was in the hospital a couple of years ago in April. I had a heart infection and was there for almost 2 weeks. I went into the family room and they had pastels and paper....so I thought about watching Bob Ross when I was a kid and started doing what I remembered. I loved it and became obsessed with it when I got home.

As far as learning, I watched a lot of youtube at first, but then I started getting coached by an artist named Stefan Baumann. He helped me take a lot of time off of the learning curve. The main thing is learning how to recognize what you are looking at...an artist's eye. I'm still working on it. Check out his youtube channel. It's excellent.

Thinking about how the artists I want to draw like's art is different from my art, from the line weight to the color palette, and incorporating what they have that I don't, is mostly what I've been doing. (Sorry about the terrible sentence construction there) It would probably be more efficient to do studies like all the other anons say, but I've just picked up most of my knowledge mostly through just continuing to draw for a long time and thinking about how to improve it along the way.

This piece will always look bad because of the pose. Even my draw-over looks really bad. I'm just posting it cause i spent all this time trying to figure it out and still I can't make it work.

This pose is just, weird. To fix it, you'll have to start all over with a completely different pose.

Study real life. Learn what is possible and what is not possible. Learn the movement patterns of fighting and running and jumping. Learn proper design and balance. Give the drawing a story, give it a narrative, something to accomplish.

Probably the biggest problem with the pose is the lack of rhythm. Everything straight and stiff.

And it's contradictory. The story that the arms are telling is different from what the legs are saying. The arms look like he just cut someone in half while the legs looks like they're about to take off, and we instinctively know that this can't happen. It's like the arms swung, and mid swing he begins to leap forward. It just doesn't happen.

Do a lot of gesture drawing and cafe sketching. I promise you there is value in studying posing.
