Been a while since I've sketched anything, but I like how this one turned out. The only thing I can really tell I did wrong is that the head is slightly bigger, but otherwise everything looks like it's in proportion. gib opinions and yes it is all on the paper, scanner is too tiny
another one, i don't like this one as much, mainly because of the mouth, makes it look too much like Resident Evil
>>960 Nice to see you're practicing. >i don't like this one as much, mainly because of the mouth, makes it look too much like Resident Evil You don't have to define every line. Less is more. A few accurate indications can be enough to convey the idea. I'm using this all the time in my work. The brain connects the dots. You also tend make faces a bit wider and heads a bit bigger than they're actually are. (like I used to) Some people also put the eyes to close together, but you seem to not do that mistake. (I definately did that a lot, before realizing what made my faces look off.) Don't be afraid to draw through shapes, you've already established. You can always darken the important lines later on.
Used the model as a basis then drew a different character over it, I think it turned out pretty well. Biggest issue is the face, most definitely some symbol drawing but I had erased and redone it so many times that the paper was starting to get thin so I just left it the way it is.

I said i would start drawing "next year" (this year) after some time doing only technical stuff, i stopped in the first place after teachers told me nobody cares about drawings and due to having zero feedback from my early attempts but i still like doing it and it's a good source of OC or storymaking i plan to do later on. So in this first day of the many weeks to come in the "have nothing at all but old books and tons of pencils" i will quick preview things i usually did in my heyday, i think i will start on paper again with those old arch reference texts but today is going to be Gimp day with a mouse cursor pencil. >Faceless figures, some trees, a building and a car. This proved much more difficult than i expected, the "pencil" point lags, cannot do some acute direction changes for some reason and making precise maneuvering is not what a mouse was made for, the car was downright impossible for me even when i could do one blindfolded once. What bothers me the most is that i'm used to speed sketching and then using most of the time making small details and this isn't it, i had a drawpad and i never got used to it because i love immediate feedback so i guess i will learn with my real pencils first then i will jump. Have no scanner so i will try to guess how to post them. Hope people start picking the board again, i remember it being a decent spot.

Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread - Sketches Edition. Do you usually refine the figure (face, accessories, hair, drapes) when sketching or its easier to just putting a landmark then refine it later in lineart?

Would getting an associates in art do any good for self improvement and motivation? Im asking this since i am lacking on improving and I thought a degree would kickstart me to drawing again. The thing is, there is so much free resources that it invalidates the paper and debt.
>>956 holy fuck someone posted here I would say no, you're not going to learn anything in art school that you can't learn from textbooks you can get 4free. I fell for the college meme for IT and it's basically the same case, the professors just teach out of the textbooks and put due dates on the exercises in them. It's a damn shame, I thought I would actually learn something but it's just going over basic shit I already know or could've figured out myself in five seconds. It'd be the same, if not worse, for art.
>>957 >holy fuck someone posted here I'm not >>956 I've started posting here because 8kun.top was total trash software. But since 8chan.moe works without cookies and javascript, I haven't had any reason to post here anymore. I'm still keeping an eye out though. ^^
Is this board more active than 8chan.moe's one?
>>970 >Is this board more active than 8chan.moe's one? I don't have anything against anon.cafe, and I would use it more, but 8chan.moe is more active. That's why I post there. I wouldn't want to force people over here. It's dumb to split up the art community.

Infinity Cup 6 is now complete! Congratulations to /fascist/ who join the ranks of champions as they defeated /bane/ 2-1 in the Final! In an unprecedented turn of events, the Golden Boot will be shared by not 2, but 3 players: Alfred Legosen (/lego/), Ammit (/monster/), and Cuckquean-tan (/cuckquean/). Each player scored 6 goals officially through the Cup, fitting, giving it was the 6th edition. Thank you to every anon who chipped in throughout the Cup, and thank you especially to all the anons who took the time to tune in. We'll see you for ICUP 7!

Hello /loomis/, I arrive at your humble board to officially announce the GCUP! The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivites. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!

I saved these two examples a while back on drawing grass. Are there any other examples on how to ink foliage out there? It seems like resources on natural things like trees and rocks are kind of scarce.
>>654 This video seems like it'd be of help to you
>>656 I'm aware of this video, sorry I should have clarified. I only work traditionally, so i'm looking for relevant methods.
>>549 Do you happen to know any books that are similar to McCloud's but it emphasizes on manga?
>>854 I wouldn't call it similar to McCloud in a technical sense, but I would consider Araki's book "Manga in Theory and Practice" obligatory reading, and it digs deep into the elements needed for comics. I think as far as the technical aspect is concerned, there's not a whole lot. This book is very dated, but it goes over a lot of technical basics. The problem I have with these books is that there are some things and techniques that aren't touched upon (like the Nodo zone, Mekuri and Hiki) https://archive.org/details/HDMVol.30PenToneTechniques/mode/2up I would not really recommend the older how to draw series books, they're extremely dated and mostly focus on trying to teach you to draw (badly) and you should already have basic grasps of how to draw or you will struggle. If you're not sure about composing pages, you will not likely find much information about that beyond basic overviews of how to do sequential art (like is discussed in McCloud's book) Read manga and take notes from artists you enjoy. Most everyone has different styles of page composition. Learning how to do this is a lot of practice.

>>576 I actually had to look up what "throd" is supposed to mean. Looks like it's an insult. Would you mind elaborating on how that's meant? If not, then that's alright as well. uwu
Always liked to draw as a kid. As i grew up i developed a dream/ambition to become a great artist, but later my motivation devolved to just wanting to impress some chick that frequented the same drawing studio, in the end my superior drawing skills didn't help me woo her, because i was a coward at heart, but i did get a love letter from some other chick that i didn't care about. Eventually my romantic interest moved to another country, i quit art and started wasting my time on imageboards, and doing drugs. After a wasted decade i got bored from being a degenerate and became a somewhat productive normie, now all that's left from my artistic past is this bump on my middle finger from holding the pencil.

I personally always used to doodle on the border of the notebook and always wanted to get into an arts career, but knowing that I would end up with no job with that I decided to get into STEM. I ended up going nowhere for four years and this quarantine finally made me get into it. Now the issue will be not throwing the towel.
Wanting to get a hobby, although I dont spend too much time since I prefer writing for the moment. And also wanting to learn the ability to draw anime
