>>3653 Unironically the Loomis abstraction would perhaps help you get your bearings somewhat. It is an imperfect method but at the same time it might help you compartmentalize what you're looking at to begin with. Again, this book is asking a lot from someone who'd only recently began drawing.

>>3655 I mean, there are no other books or courses for complete beginners that I know of. So, I gotta sludge through this.
>>3665 I've already mentioned Fun With a Pencil and Drawing on the Right side of the Brain, but you might as well chug along with this as long as you've come this far. Honestly it's a bit enlightening to me as well as someone interested in seeing how people learn or what they might struggle with.

>>3646 Just thought of 2 good scenarios for Mrs. Reverse-Tarzan. One is Disney's Tarzan in reverse as much as possible, the other goes off the beaten path. Reverse-Tarzan: >Ma and Pa Tarzette's ship goes up in flames >They escape and build a new life for themselves on the coast of a desert >luckily, there's a river delta ala The Nile and oh whoops Ma & Pa are fucking dead >Killed by a motherfucking hippo on a rampage >totes-not-Kala sees this and takes pity on Tarzette, adopting her as her own >Much to her husband totes-not-Kerchak's chagrin >Tarzette is raised as a human tribal, and her cleverness is abundantly shown >Using her monkey cunning and tribal human traps, she becomes the best hunter in her tribe >Eventually she kills that jackass hippo wielding nothing but a spear and her wits (traps placed in advance) >More stuff happens, disney tarzan plot is followed to a t yadda yadda >Meets John Porter and gives him jungle fever doing your pic

Drawing Hardware General Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 14:14:30 No. 2780 [Reply] [Last]
A THREAD FOR DIGITAL DRAWING HARDWARE AND PERIPHERAL QUESTIONS I was drawing this morning and my tablet (HUION WH1409 8192) pen's pressure was acting up and I pressed down harder on it thinking the nib was stuck or something but I felt the nib get lodged into the pen. The nib was really stuck in there but I managed to get it out. HOWEVER, now it's not registering pressure whatsoever and I've tried sticking objects down the shaft to see if I could maybe get whatever was in there out or maybe reset the pressure mechanism, but to no avail. I'm pretty sure it's just fucked. I found what model it was online but how exactly does replacing a previous pen work? Should it work out of the box when I touch the new pen to my tablet or am I going to have to install new drivers? Are the settings on it going to have to be reset?

>>3545 Correction: the Intuos 4 does not have the same surface as the Intuos 3. My bad; I remembered wrong. The 4 has kind of a hard plastic surface similar to a Huion that, while not as aggressive as the Intuos 5 or Pro's literal sandpaper surface, is nonetheless quite a bit more prone to wear and tear than the Intuos 3 is. Seems the 3 is still the kang in that regard, the 4 actually can get pretty gross if you don't take care of it apparently. With this revelation I highly recommend using the same trick of using a laminate sheet cut to size, or you could even use a piece of paper and adhere it to the surface with a light painter's tape, though that will chew up your nibs much like the default Intuos 5 surface does.
>>3626 Thanks
>>3632 I know that reply was pretty flippant, I purchased a program called "Lazy Nezumi" once years ago and never really used it. I've never seen the point, but that could be because of the kind of art I do. Never had problem with lines though, seems like a meme to me tbh

>>3620 It's the same method you used before. >>3618 With the blue lines you were describing where the third were in comparison to the lower right length of the cube, using the diagonals to find the intersect points, then extending them to the midline you actually wanted the divisions on. In your second version, you just decided to split the midline first, and get your thirds on it. There was no need to interest with diagonals like you did last time, because you started parallel to the line you actually wanted to divide. If that didn't make any sense, here's the simple version. Erase the magenta lines on this one >>3618 and you've have the exact same number of lines.

>>3621 Right. It becomes clear when I rotate the page. Same thing, only with the dimensions shifted around -- Z becomes X, X becomes Y, Y becomes Z. Pretty satisfying how it works out like that.
>>3620 >I've never seen this method anywhere before, so I'm posting it here on the off chance somebody finds it useful. I do, actually. I've had this exact question before, but it seemed like too much of a hassle to look into, so your whole discussion has been very interesting to me. Thank you both for basically just handing me the answers.

I found a lot of that stuff pretty helpful though it remains somewhat incomplete. Perhaps there are better models floating around out there now.
>>2628 Leopold II was on the right track.
>>2623 where are some free, anatomically-correct-enough male/female models that I can use in blender for reference posing? I'm not sure if I want to pay money for both the ecorche models in the loomis pastebin.

Learning how to draw in 6 easy steps Anonymous 03/15/2021 (Mon) 17:58:18 No. 1991 [Reply] [Last]
>What is the purpose of this thread? The point of this thread is to establish for people the foundations of what is required in order to become a great artist. The people this thread is best aimed at are those so-called "experts" wanting to get back to the basics, or newcomers wanting to know how to start their journey towards becoming an artist. >Does the "six steps" mean I will become a great artists within the week? No. The purpose of the "six steps" is to establish a foundation for all art and drawing. You're not going to become an expert overnight because drawing is a skill that you need to develop over time. However, it's pointless to constantly bang your head against a wall for hours on end because that will do nothing except burn yourself out and become frustrated. To put it one way, it's a better learning process to spend 10 days sketching for an hour than spend one day sketching for 10 hours. >So, how does the "six step" process work? All you do is spend 15-60 hours everyday, drawing each successive step of the process. That's it. >What happens if I miss a day You just continue on with the next day as if nothing every happened. Spending double the time is not going to make up for the day that you lost. >What if I just don't feel like doing it one day? If you don't "feel" like it, learn to work through it because what you're doing is building a habit. If you're still having a "hard time", just get out your supplies, and set them up as if you were going to still practice. If you're still not "feeling it", perhaps drawing isn't your thing and you need to find a new hobby. >How was this process developed? Referring to resources that other artists have recommended in regards actually learning how to draw. So, here we go...

Don't neglect your wonderful body, Anon. Physical health and mental health are strongly correlated; become a man worthy of your anime Original Character girlfriend's heart and realize your true potential in the disgusting, 3D Pig-Dimension through the time-honored technique of lifting things off of the ground into an anatomically strategic position and then putting them back down again! Official /loomis/ home gym workout routine for amateurs All exercises use light dumbbells (10lb, 20lb and 40+lb for lower body exercises-and a $20-$30 door frame pull up bar recommended) or body weight and are performed 3 sets proceeding until failure. Each days' series of exercises should require roughly two episodes of japanese girl cartoons worth of time to complete. Recommended concurrent viewing for maximum gains and motivation (feel free to recommend your own below!): Baki the Grappler: https://4anime.to/anime/baki JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: https://4anime.to/anime/jojo-no-kimyou-na-bouken-tv Keijo: https://4anime.to/anime/keijo Hajime no Ippo: https://4anime.to/anime/hajime-no-ippo Hokuto no Ken: https://4anime.to/anime/hokuto-no-ken https://exrx.net/Lists/Directory Day 1 - the Biceps of Bridgman: Dumbbell Hammer Curl
