Boy, why do you do this to me u.u

He looks way more brutal than i actually expect him to be but that's because of your crazy killer style. something like this makes me feel a little bit safer about the whole thing. thank you bb, i don't even know how to repay for that °^°

I will work on it.

I won't finalize is that fast since i want it to be elaborated. Which means i will do some adjustments, wait a week, look at them again and see what i think of it after that week. you know, to get rid of unnecessary hypes
but overall he will stay like that

Do you draw

If you do make a bad drawing that is anatomically incorrect.

Now try to shade that bad drawing.



Oh wait,you can't.

Because it's anatomically incorrect.

Because to shade a drawing,you have to understand what you have drawn and how it is supposed to represent a 3D form.

You can try to get an actual expert to shade your drawing if the construction is bad then it'll always look bad. When you can't walk,you shouldn't try to jump.

Well, adunsavme is right, I was just drawing for the sake of shading. I just drew the girl quickly so that I could get to working on the light reflection and such.

But, since you seem so passionate about it, what do you think is so drastically wrong with the anatomy? It really just seems like the shoulders, boobs, and face are all a bit off to me.

But you can still shade it
Even in this case it's close enough for it to be used as a tool for practice

(12/01/2014) [-]
Yeah,but you'll not progress very far like that. When I learnt shading I realized I wasn't even able to use it because I didn't "see" what I drew. I focused on sketching instead and trying to make things in perspective and create volume with the shape,and then it was much easier to understand how do I shade with that.

when doing shadows, especially on skin, its best to stay away from adding pure black to the skin color to make the shadow. try to keep in mind that the color of the light changes the color of the shadow (blue light=blue shadow). if the light source is white one would think the shadows would be grey, but with skin you have to remember that the light goes through to some degree, making the shadows appear slightly more red due of the blood vessels. this is assuming that its a strong light source of course the picture is an example of using different hues in the shadow sorry for the huge comment

Ok, thanks a lot. I really appreciate the huge comment. Again, I'm really new to shading, so how much should you adjust the hue? Like, should it just have a hint of pink? Or should it be almost red but painted with a low opacity brush?

just adding a bit of red to the original skin tone and then darkening it should be fine. it really depends on the light source. you can read this if you want more in depth color advice, it doesnt cover everything but its good androidarts.com/art_tut.htm

I started to write off a few notes to myself because I realized I keep doing the same idiocies every year and this isn't really helping my technological advancement. Here are a few lines.

- Every line,every stroke has to exist for a reason. So think before you trace.

- 3 good strikes are worth more than 300 bad ones.

- You're drawing volume,not pictures. Stop thinking in 2D.

- Stop focusing on details,and while you draw your picture think about the whole of it.

- Sleep now and wake up with a thirsty brain for tommorrow.

Anyone have some stock photos of a female runner in the start position (not the resting one but like the moment before the gun goes off) I've found a couple on Google but I'm not satisfied with the angle and I want a couple variants in bust size, muscle tone, and over all weight; also I'd really like an anatomic model of the position if you have one (when I tried googling for it like this it just gave up and gave me pictures of cats, trees, and scars; I'm exaggerating slightly).

If you really want to draw, you'd do it.
If you rather to other things than drawings, you don't want to draw, you don't need to force yourself.

Drawing requires a lot of time, passion, hard work, tears, blood, dirreah and other things.

enough of the tough guy talk;
Motivation can only be found by yourself. You gotta find things, stuff or people that motivate or inspire you. Like some people get inspiration from songs, from other artist, from friends, video games or simply by looking into the sky. Maybe you feel good if you do art for someone else like a gift, mabye you want to prove someone something or you just want to creat your own world. Whatever it is, it's up to you.
There is no tutorial for "you gotta do this and that and then you can draw for 412 hours straight". The only tutorial you find is this: You gotta draw if you want to draw

Well i am an artist in college right no because i cant see myself doing anything else. regardless i have been drawing a lot more than i have recently so its not like ive lost my love for it. I 100% agree with everything you said. its just that everything keeps distracting me. if i have an idea and i want to put it on paper and i am motivated to do it I subconsciously go to the computer and watch youtube videos for the entire day. tomorrow imma try and get myself motivated. i guess the only way is to not get on the internet it distracts me too much
