Here's my own personal remaining of Darth Vader.

What if he killed Obi-Wan and was able to cut down the Emperor and become Emperor Vader?

Give me some eye tutorials!   
No, not anime eyes that won't help at all. I need the basics.

draw a ball.
Mark the the corners of the eye on to the ball
draw eyelids
-remember they have thickness, just a single line might not be enough
-remember proper curvature of the lines depending on the angle
-bottom eyelid generally goes straighter than the top. if you simplify them as straight lines, top eyelid has two corners/points, while the top only have one.
draw eyelashes
-don't do each lash individually, just block in the value.
add skin folds

or just watch these

to exactly a tutorial, but i assume seeing the process of a realistic eye being done, would be a little bit helpful.

How do I do emotions? I only know how to to do this one emotion right.
#67427 to #67420 - groulgarigon (01/22/2015) [-]
If you want to get better at emotions, study them. It's hard to draw from knowledge if you've never studied it. So study the old masters, Walt Disney, Preston Blair, or even screencap old Disney movies. Get a mirror look at your face while you're drawing them. Make faces at yourself. You may find you automatically make the face of whatever you're trying to draw. So again, study then practice. There is no quick way.

"Tips on digital painting/artwork?"

I have no idea where to go with that one. Digital painting is such a broad topic spanning numerous programs and ways to improve. I'm going to need to have a bit more to go on.

"How to improve in traditional art?"

Sad to say there is only a general answer for this one and it's one you've heard millions of times before. Improvement in any medium can be broken down into two things: study and practice. First you have to study in order to learn new things about what it is you're doing. But you can't just study infinitely. It's one thing to know how to do something, but doing that thing is completely different. So you also have to practice. Try doing this cyclically. Study something you don't know well, then practice it and find the best way there is for YOU to get that done.

"How to practice backgrounds?"

You appear to have stumbled upon my weakness. Backgrounds are still for me a gigantic cluster of impossibility. Really the only thing I can recommend currently is the draw100 challenge. When in doubt draw 100 of something. Have a reference of a background you want to try, then copy it. Strictly for practice and always give credit obviously.

"How many years would it take to go from complete beginner to... somewhere?"

It really varies. How early in your life did you start? How much time do you have to dedicate yourself to this? Do you have an affinity for drawing and know you'll go back to it every single day? How receptive are you to learning new things and changing your methods for the better? These and many other questions will effect how quickly you improve. To give you a bit of perspective I've really been drawing since around 1st grade, so for me I've roughly been drawing about 17 years. And what you see to the left is the extent of my abilities so far. (Admittedly I don't get many chances to do this kind of thing but regardless it's my best so far) By professional standards I am what is seen as average if not maybe an almost ignorable bit above average. But that's my opinion and thus we get to another factor. How good you are varies from person to person and you being the artist you will always ALWAYS think your artwork is crap. But it's important you listen to your inner voice saying you could have done better then ask yourself how you could have made this picture better. That's what fuels your improvement. Be willing to take criticism and such from people who know what they're talking about (NOT from the average joes who just want to shout their stupid ill informed opinion) and give yourself a few years. It takes a lot of someone to learn.

Sorry but that, was just typing on the spot but thanks! For the first part, I think I was trying to ask how to get started with coloring images on the computer. As for the rest, in pretty comfortable with them right now
#67402 to #67401 - groulgarigon (01/21/2015) [-]
Typically one starts with what he/she knew before they made the transition. The thing you'll probably initially start with is lines on one layer and colors on the layer below it.

Do you believe that you have to start young to be good at it?
Would you say that drawing makes visualizing things in your head easier?
Also how to shade?
#67396 to #67394 - groulgarigon (01/21/2015) [-]
"Do you believe that you have to start young to be good at it?"

No. You don't have to start young to be good at it, but I say this with the provision that starting young makes it easier for you in the future. When you are younger your brain is still developing and is more open to influence and knowledge, which lays the groundwork for how you will operate in the future. As you get older this tapers off and you become less receptive to new information. So you can start drawing at any time you want but those who start younger will have an advantage, but don't let that be a discouragement.

"Would you say that drawing makes visualizing things in your head easier?"

I would argue yes. In drawing, one is not simply drawing a figure. He knows what the figure looks like in three dimensions. He knows what implications movement of a certain part of the figure would have on the form. And in that regard, yeah, one is able to visualize much easier considering the time has been put into study and practice. But I would also argue no. Because imagination is something that can vary depending on an infinite number of factors that I have yet to wrap my head around. And imagination is the other side of that visualization coin. Though I will end with this, the more you know about art, design, and, drawing, the easier it will be to visualize because less of what you draw relies on imagination. Though be careful. You still want to retain your imaginative side.

"Also how to shade?" This is a gigantic topic. Take the picture to the left. Shadow obviously is manipulated by light. The direction on which light is shining on an object effects where the shadow shape will form. It's proximity to objects around it will dictate the reflected light within the dark because light always bounces off objects. (This will also dictate the color of the shadows and to some extent the depth of the shadow) And since an object always casts a shadow, you must consider again the direction the light is coming from and then put it down. Be sure to draw darker darks closer to the object because of the small bit of occlusion shadow between the object and it's background. (Stick your thumb and point finger together. That little line of shadow that forms between them, that is occlusion shadow.) Those are the basics. I recommend doing still lifes.

I have the vision in my head buy I can't get it out! How the hell do you make a man with a strong jaw and and a slight beard to look like he is in his twenties/thirties, without making him look like a superhero strongman. He either comes out as 50 years old, or as Hercules. I want him to look like a hunter/soldier. You know, strong but not necessarily the most nourished.

So I'm relatively new to drawing, and so far the only thing I feel slightly good at is drawing maps The one shown is a part of a much larger map for a fantasy project I'm working on, I could post that as well if anyone wants to see . And I'm using mainly pencil crayons for coloring, but for coloring maps or adding other details, what would be better? Could I use felts maybe? if so what kind?

Also, If i wanted to get into digital art, where would I start?
#67361 to #67360 - arialynx (01/21/2015) [-]
Personally, I would suggest pencil and colored pencils, and then maybe go over your pencil with a pen or a sharpie to make the borders stand out.
