>> No.4183590

Unless you literally only have a mouse you have no excuse for this. And if you do only have a mouse and no tablet then just draw on pencil and paper. Get a #2 pencil and printer paper if you're that poor, it's miles better than the fucking pen and bucket tools.

That’s not what they’re saying I think. I think they’re saying you should be doing both. Groom both skills at the same time. Draw a reference then attempt to paint it. The reference helps you see values and colors. You’ll progress in both.

>> No.4183666

Yeah, holy shit, don't draw with a fucking mouse. That's all he's trying to say. Consider this: No professional draws with a fucking mouse. NONE. Plenty of professionals draw with a screenless tablet, a screen tablet, paper, pencils, pens, markers, iPads, literally EVERYTHING but a fucking mouse.
Think about pro fighting game players, if you want to be a pro at fighting games, you don't NEED an arcade stick because plenty of pros have won EVO with a fucking default ass PS3 controller-- but NO pro at art has drawn with a mouse.
He is saying if you are drawing with a mouse, you are better off drawing on paper with a pencil than you are trying to use a mouse.
Why are you on a fucking board dedicated to art and becoming better at art, yet aren't listening to fucking advice you're given? Especially when that advice isn't difficult. He's not telling you to buy hundreds of dollars of books or perfectly draw a skeleton from every single fucking angle, he is literally telling you to get a default ass fucking pencil and a default ass piece of paper and fucking draw on it.

>> No.4183674

No, I really started just a year ago, maybe around december, january or october. I dont really remember. I already had some experience with photoshop and graphic programs.Before it, I would draw or doodle something once every 5 months or so, sometimes just once in a year.
I turd polish A LOT and sometimes I take days to finish something. Currently I'm trying to become faster at drawing and learn feets and hands, but I have no idea if im on the right way or progressing.
I'm a 32 yo neet, I've wasted most of my life studying and searching for work and all of this just made me miserable. Drawing in one of the things that I always wished to do.

>How did you start out?
I started because I got a tablet for free. I was already ok at copying pictures because of high school assignments but not much beyond that. First thing I did was follow ctrl+paint lessons to understand digital, but never completed it. Did a bit of fun with a pencil for about a week then skipped straight to hampton.
>Which books did you read?
From the very instant I started I was worried about how much I was learning so I was always experimenting with different ways of studying. I found out books weren't helping me much early on. What really helped me to make things click was copying (analyzing, getting a feel for, etc) other artist's studies, but it helped only if the artists had a similar way of thinking to me. I found that only studying with intent was fruitful. You need to pick a single aspect to study and focus on it.
I only recently found a good way get a lot out of a studying a single drawing. It seems really obvious to me now but all I have to do is just instantly apply whatever I studied. For every referenced drawing I do, I do at least another one from imagination. It seems to be really helping when it comes to remembering details.
I have one but I keep nuking it because I'm dissatisfied with myself.

If it makes you feel better it took about 3 days. I wonder if anyone remembers when I posted a wip of that in /beg/.

im happy to see someone over 25 here that is genuinely commited to drawing and getting better instead of complaining that they're too old.

i'm definitely not the ic's definition of "made it", but i neglected drawing for years, got an engineering diploma, finally decided to fuck it all and went to art college when i was 23. I'm getting small commissions (illustrations and portraits) even though I'm practically nonexistent in social media. I really dont feel like age matters anything these days, everyone has access to the internet and clients dont care whether you're 16 or 50, they just want their commission done.

I'm talking about workflows, stuff like "sketch to lineart then coloring" and etc.

>> No.4185422

I'm really having a hard time trying to describe it but I start out with blobs of color to see how well they go together. When I'm satisfied with the colors and composition, I move on to "sculpting" the forms, making adjustments until I'm satisfied(I don't do construction so I just go by feel). Then polishing which takes the most amount of time--this is where I add the textures. I also take multiple days off between work sessions and I'm easily distracted so it usually takes me weeks to finish a project, not a very good workflow. I'm still trying to figure out how I can improve in this aspect but maybe it's just because of my inexperience.

What's he about to do
How does he feel
Is he a statue, or does he have movement and life?
What's off frame?

The armour and sword have so much drama in their design alone, which makes me think you have incredible potential, but without those elements, the figure has little more impact or charisma than the 2010 one (if you don't believe me, draw them both wearing the same outfit or nude)

Link just looks like that in BOTW. Sidon is also pretty huge.

Scott Eaton, James Gurney, Scott Robertson, Loomis and such are pretty good. A lot of people say "Just draw" but don't elaborate on it. You need to draw with a purpose of improving something specific. Like perspective or figures.
Go ahead and overlay them anon, should be easy in your art program.

You have to really love drawing. I love it and it still frustrates me sometimes. You need to be dedicated and put forward a good work ethic. At first I did have a part time job and drew. I built a following on commissions and soon enough my commissions supported me better than my part time. Once I gained enough traction I created a Patreon, which was slow at first, but marketing is really key.
