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?
>>461 Real good work lad
>>459 Don't give up! Use the resources in the meta thread!

>>461 very good stuff >>459 looks good to me, just keep pushing forward
>>462 >>464 Doesn't it look too shapeless? I have a hard time trying to show 3d in 2d.
>>465 What do you mean by shapeless? If you're talking about whether or not it feels like it has form, you've done a pretty good job. important parts to note is that the lines overlap in t-sections well enough giving an illusion of depth. You did a really nice job with the top plane of the body where the trapezius and collar bones form the top. A few criticisms is that the hips area is where the illusion breaks down a bit since the perspective gets broken by the abdominal line sort of cutting down and it's unclear if how much the hips are rotating since you're showing a lot of the side of the hip that we probably wouldn't see. >>461 Actually looking at what this anon has done, you can see that the hip is far more rotated so we can see the side of the hips more. Although he's drawn it in a much flatter perspective and not top down like yours. All in all pretty good job, keep doing gesture drawings, anatomy studies and keep grinding perspective if you have time.
How should I be holding my pen for digital drawing? It's feels like my lines get really stuttery because my wrist drags, but if my hand is completely off any surface and there's no support I can't draw a line that isn't wavy and at a 45° off where I want it to go. >>459 For what it's worth that's 100 times better than anything I can draw.
>>467 It is all muscle memory. and don't feel afraid of zooming in so you have more space to draw on.

>>467 >It's feels like my lines get really stuttery because my wrist drags Get one of those tablet gloves, it even helps me draw on paper.
>>465 It looks like something that needs to be finished, if anything

Here is how it went. Is there anything I should change? I don't like young girls and their small breasts at all, so I rarely draw them. However, it may be interesting to draw them young and then how they look mature. >>466 Many thanks! I don't think I ever done any "gesture drawing" and perspective grinding, I should.
>>472 looks good, if anything her tits look just a bit too high up but that may be because of the angle. focus more on anatomy and all the little details that come with it. you're already worlds ahead of me so take my advice as you will

resources for learning to draw individual body parts?
>>475 Did you check the Anatomy folders in the mega packs?
>>475 Pardon me, it's been a while since I last updated them. It's in their respective folders, AKA Feet, Eyes etc.
>>476 >bandwidth limits i really wish we'd stop using mega, using Mediafire or getting a torrent would be better
>>479 Well, it's just a bunch of pictures. Can't you use a proxy to get to them?

>>480 I do have Tor and a VPN but I fucking hate Mega for making me have to switch it just to download a bunch of fucking JPGs. I'll probably download everything in the sticky one by one then make a megadrawpack and put it on Mediafire so no aspiring artist ever has to deal with this shit again.
>>482 It would be mighty useful, post it on the meta when you do
Where do you get your poses and references from?
>>513 Going outside for a walk, pictures, movies, reference books, reality.
>>513 Google images and some folders in which I've collected pictures I like over the years. There are a bunch of reference/model books in the resource hub too.

The fuck does "feel the form" mean?
>>550 Ever played a videogame with really tight movement to the point you can practically play like it's second nature?
>>550 If you heard that in a video or read it in some kind of forum post and you don't understand what it means, then don't bother with it. You're not at that level yet. Just keep drawing and try rotating objects in your brain. Also learn how to construct forms. You learn that shit in Scott Robertsons. The pdf should be somewhere in here: https://mega.nz/#F!Y9AA1IpA!zXPbFOlubqEcOd75cZR1Eg https://mega.nz/#F!M8s0XYjB!mo_9uNAKJUnVD3Ne9X9vgg!04dD0JpA https://mega.nz/#F!es1BSKQR!spODyd0iaQmMelGA2GscFw https://mega.nz/#F!BXJkjSKI!ef2mMsm1mkj2nf3amonPEA
>>567 In Scott Robertsons "How to Draw"
This has more to do with character design, but what sort of legwear/socks would make a school uniform look rebellious? or imply that a character acts that way
>>605 I think they should be tattered or have smears as if to say "this gal got into more fights than you could handle". Traditional Sukeban characters also have waist high socks.
Does being good at drawing translate to making good 3DCG models?
>>646 They're not really the same kind of skill. It's probably really good for telling weight and shades, but I think it still requires its own fair share of time spent learning the basics.
1. Is Drawabox useful? I've been doing exercises from there since filling squares, lines and ellipses fills my autism. 2. Is proko useful or just a meme? I've seen him posted from time to time but I don't know if it was un or ironically
>>679 1. I don't know, seems to vary from person to person. I didn't like it myself, and I ended up learning the fundamentals from a couple other places. 2. Proko is unironically super useful.
>>679 Proko is useful for anatomy.
How the FUCK do poles draw so good?

>going through Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain >got to drawing Igor upside down >while i'm drawing I can physically feel a strain on the right side of my head that I've never felt before >amazed that I could draw and that by not seeing I can truly see i'm gonna make it bros
>>715 Good job Anon. Keep going and finish the book!

>>715 Good stuff, drawing Igor upside down was the first thing I did when starting out so I never felt what you feel, perhaps later. Keep it up. And now that you bring that book up, are the exercises from it different from the ones of Keys to Drawing? Should both books be read and the exercises done, or just with finishing one the jump to Loomis can be done?
Hey. What are other ways to accept untraceable payment? I'm doing certain niche that doesn't sit well with average bots but not worthy enough for glowniggers to give a fuck. There's no way to cash out crypto coins where I live so that's out of question.
>>722 maybe try accepting Amazog/gift cards? not sure if there's a way to share them easily without getting scammed though. why can't you cash out crypto where you are? is it banned by the gubmint? i used to use Paxful until they made IDs mandatory for transactions, there should be a few sites left that let you use it anonymously (use a VPN 24/7 to be safe)

How do you know that your monitor's calibration is accurate? I recently switched to a new OS and I'm having a lot trouble calibrating my monitor. I followed the instructions that appear on lagom(dot)nl (which is what I do usually), but while the contrast and the brightness look fine, now colors look washed out. Now all my drawings look awful, and I'm not even sure if that's how they should look like. I've been trying to find a software that helps me with this, but I couldn't find anything like that for Linux. I can't even find an ICC profile for my shitty monitor. What should I do? Should I go back to Windows?
>>760 >Should I go back to Windows? No Regarding the color calibration, Install xcalib go to /usr/share/color/icc/colord/ (at least that's the place where I found the color profiles on my system.) Choose one you like. $ xcalib profile.icc
>>760 If you had the monitor settings set-up that way in Windows, I can't see why it wouldn't also work in Linux unless it's using a different display profile but since you can't find one for your monitor, it's probably just a generic sRGB profile in both OS's. I wonder if you get the right colors if you do a drawing with the default monitor settings? Presumably whatever you are doing the drawing in is attaching a color profile to the output image?
>>761 I've been trying to do that, but I always get a message that says, "Warning - Unable to read file profile.icc". So far, I've used these commands: >xcalib BestRGB.icc >xcalib /usr/share/color/icc/BestRGB.icc >/usr/bin/xcalib -d :0 /usr/share/color/icc/BestRGB.icc However, I think you have the right idea. I'll try to find out what I'm doing wrong. Thank you. >>762 Come to think of it, I used the NVIDIA Control Panel to calibrate my monitor in Windows, so I guess W7 is using a different display profile technically. Unfortunately, the Linux version of that control panel doesn't have that option.
How to make the transition from pen and paper to digital? Just draw?
>>764 >Just draw? Pretty much that, or at least that was my case. However, you could try a few exercise to get used to this new environment faster. >Draw lines, circles and cubes >Color some line art >"Ink" some pencil drawings >Make a few sketches every now and then In short, start with easy stuff and move from there.

Why is doing blook heads surprisingly difficult, and am I supposed to grind these heads until something clicks?
Should I invest in a Wacom tablet for getting into digital, or is Huion good enough? I had a small Huion one and and broke the stylus before getting much practice with it, but it felt pretty cramped and difficult to get to respond to pressure properly. I was already planning to get something with more surface area, but I don't want it to be something I need to do twice.
>>831 Huion is good quality, tablets and pens are well-built and should last a while. their drivers can be fucky but if I can get it working on ganoo+linoox you can get it working on wangblows.

Hey guys can someone draw /fascist/'s board tan, integralistchan being bleached by a white guy. Bonus points for multiple white guys and captions.
>>831 > Should I invest in a Wacom tablet for getting into digital, or is Huion good enough? What do you mean good enough? Huion is better than Wacom. KEK Nowadays with all that competition you can basically buy whatever you fucking want. lmfao
