>>3060 I sometimes feel like I'm contributing to coomer culture, yes. But I enjoy drawing and sharing suggestive art. Perhaps when I'm older I will draw more serious things. I also draw things that are easy to digest. Like fast food but for art. Maybe it's not so good for others either, but maybe it's the only kind of material I can produce.

>>3046 >>3049 I will leave the body for other who are more capable than me. As far as the face goes the only thing that really catches my attention is the thickness of the neck. These might be just stylistic choices >ear not visible >edge of eyelashes less pointy >eyelashes smaller but numerous >upper eyelid lower >lower eyelid and eyelashes not visible >nose less visible >right eye smaller >right iris more angled >left iris larger >forehead more curved >hair follow the curvature of the forehead >neck shorter

>>3055 You've solved it; the left corner of the right eye wasn't shaped right, so it made the eyes look like they were different shapes. Often that part's covered by hair or something, so I couldn't figure out what was throwing them off. I was curving it with regards to how I wanted the eye to be shaped without paying attention to where the eye socket would cover it which pisses me off, because I just realized you shouldn't mirror the angle of that part of the eye 2 sketches ago, but because I wanted these to look rounder I didn't consider that for some reason. Both you and >>3054 are right about the lashes being too thick for this face, though. But I like them anyway. >the only thing that really catches my attention is the thickness of the neck Most of my drawings either have really defined necks and shoulders, or short and fat ones. I deliberately didn't draw the collarbone here, but since I usually use it to guide the neck, so I couldn't really figure out how to make it look right. I thought I could get away with just making a shadow, but it fucked that up, too. I should have just used a guide line for the chin, too, but I didn't think you'd see one from that angle. I have next to no idea how to properly apply shadows, so I shouldn't have tried to use them to hide shit. >ear not visible I didn't really want to show the ear either, it just felt like I had to because of the head tilt. That's also why it's so shitty; normally I only draw more realistic-looking ones, so I don't really know how to properly handle them in this style. >I apologize for destroying the original intent of your drawing. Hardly, most of the changes you made were things I tried to do but failed at, or else oversights that I made while looking to correct other parts.

>>2948 >It feels like I'm skipping a step or following instructions incorrectly, but for the life of me I can't seem to find out how. Ok, everyone reading this take a moment and talk about what books and courses we started with and have read. Aside from the obvious of doing that upside-down Picasso thing, most of my early learning came from Keys to Drawing by Bert Dobson. >I don't want to end up only being able to make copies of things that other people have already done As long as you also practice anatomy and drawing shit from imagination outside of the copy grind, you won't end up like the endless Walter White portraits retards. I don't know what's going wrong for you in failing to improve, keep in mind gittin' gud takes literal years, and your ability to see and your ability to draw don't grow in tandem. >too focused on shoulder use The TootsGhost copypasta strikes again. The human wrist is a piece of shit that can't withstand being bent or flexing as well most other joints. When doing arm related hobbies like art, gaming, typing, or playing the piano or guitar for extended periods of time, you need to keep your wrists straight so you don't get carpal tunnel and nerve damage. So it's a good idea to learn how to draw with the rest of your arm as well, the fingers, the elbow, and the shoulder. The other reason is for drawing straight lines on larger canvases. But you don't need your shoulder involved if you aren't trying to draw on something like a 2 foot wide sheet of paper.
I was on a good drawing streak for a while but it just came to a screeching halt because I legitimately can't imagine things in 3D in my head anymore. Have I incurred some rare form of brain damage? >>2949 I started with drawabox but didn't finish it, the exercises are pretty useful for practicing the fundamentals I think. I see a lot of people who start drawing from their earliest memories so I think it would be hard to remember what it was first like for them.
>>2949 >that upside-down Picasso thing When I did this, half of it came out way bigger than the other side. You could still tell what it was supposed to be, but it looked as though the corner was stretched out or something. I guess I could try drawing with just one eye, but I feel like that would cause more problems than it would solve. > I don't know what's going wrong for you in failing to improve Me neither man, I feel like I've hit an invisible wall. Maybe my references are too stagnant. I'd like to watch someone else to understand motions better, but there aren't many videos that show more than the fingertips or something when people are drawing, and if there is, it's usually of people who've been gud for like 20 years and don't need to follow construction steps anymore. >The human wrist is a piece of shit that can't withstand being bent or flexing as well most other joints I know, it's why I've been trying to get better at arm use in general. The difference is that I know that my arm drawings are going to come out super inaccurate, while my wrist should hypothetically do what I want it to. I've watched people draw both ways and have their shit turn out well, so I've been wavering between trying to build muscle control with my arm and detail accuracy with my wrist or my fingers I guess, since I've noticed I have a tendency to draw much like I write when dealing with small things regardless of how I'm holding the pencil. Maybe that's my problem, but I don't have the muscle control with any other articulation points to be able to make perfect comparisons. If what I'm drawing takes up a whole A4 sheet, I'll use my shoulder extensively, but if it's something smaller than 2 inches or I'm not sitting at a table, I'll use my wrist. >>2953 You could always try painting or some other form of value-centered style. That way, you won't really have to imagine things in 3D, you can just construct them based on where light and shadow falls. Not that I'd know what I'm talking about, but it's worked for me before.

Drawing Hardware General Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 14:14:30 No. 2780 [Reply]
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?

>>2838 the One is relatively new and though I've never used it, from all appearances it doesn't look like it has that kind of surface-but I could be wrong. If your nibs are wearing out really quickly though I can only assume that could be "One" reason why. It's almost impossible to tell from the pictures alone. If it feels like it has any appreciable grit or texture then that is the likely culprit. In the past the Wacom 3s and 4s had basically a slick rubbery plastic surface which preserved nibs for long periods of time.
>>2839 Yeah, I've had it set right down the middle but I'll try gradually increasing the sensitivity. >>2842 Yeah, it doesn't seem to be any rougher than a hard plastic surface. Most likely just a me problem. Thanks, anons.

>>2706 Thanks, that was quite useful to me, although the Proko thing shows the arm from the lateral side (out of curiosity, did you also assume that the thumb side of the forearm is medial? I made that mistake at first and only found out I was wrong after googling to double check). Assuming the Ecorche model is accurately proportioned it helped correct a couple things. I also found >>166 which kind of helped a little. After significant amounts of cross referencing and double checking; that twist really messed with my head.
>>2713 >did you also assume that the thumb side of the forearm is medial? (yes) >Assuming the Ecorche model is accurately proportioned it helped correct a couple things. Good to hear. I found a lot of that stuff pretty helpful though it remains somewhat incomplete. Perhaps there are better models floating around out there now.

Do you keep a backlog of things to draw? Are you waiting for your skill to catch up or do you just not have the time or motivation? Do you ever actually work through your ideas or is it still piling up? I have a txt that I keep everthing from random stuff I want to draw to full blown autistic webcomics. As of yet I'm not good enough for any of them. I wonder how many years it'll be until I git gud enough to make that flatland animaton with a cowtits carl sagan and a dfc.
