Whichever method gives you better results.


>not starting with a half asterisk like an spastic


I work as a caricaturist at a theme park. If I have to choose I go egg shape but sometimes we don't even start with the outer shape and start from the facial features and build outward. REALLY fucking strange process but when you get used to it oddly enough it makes drawing normally again so much less work.



There's a book on caricature from one of the MAD magazine artists that's really good. It made me want to be a caricature artist myself but I don't think I have the balls


Nothing of both. Especially when you're a beginner. Don't ever think in circles or egg-ish shapes. Build forms like spheres! The head is no circle. Even if you start to draw or paint the head, construct a sphere, not what you think, where the central line, ear line etc. could be.

For me the best method is the one I learned from Sinix. (Just search on Youtube) This way you draw or paint a bent piece of paper, wrapped around the head

Here is the finished LineArt. I'll see what clothes draw to her :)

I'm with the idea of creating another similar character, but slightly shorter in stature.


>I do feel there might be something wrong with the deltoid area as well but it's hard to describe.

I try to mark the muscles of the arms to practice a bit on the anatomy. I can try to simplify and draw her arms in a simpler way if it looks bad. After all, it is more of a caricature than a 100% real model anatomically.

> Also, that line you have where the bottom of the ribcage or lat or whatever gets overlapped by the contour line of the bicep and brachioradialus is technically a tangent I believe

That is a guide line. Do you speak of the line that runs through her back? If so, the line in question is only a guide that indicates the back of the chest box

Just being bored, and attempting to incorporate what I've learned lately, into some loose sketching. Decided to use some stuff I have older examples of, as material, so I could compare the results.


Thank you. I do my best.


Sorry it wasn't to your liking, but I should point out that since I was learning as I went along with this, page 30 is still way too early in to quit. The art style is barely coalescing, as is the story, at that point. Keep up with the posts in the thread, and maybe reconsider if the upcoming pages catch your fancy. I at least promise the story gets really moving, real soon.

what exercises should I do if I have been drawing for a year and am still at level 1?



Doesn't look like level 1 to me. Looks like you just need more plain old experience by drawing variety of things without half assing them, you can't draw things quickly for comics if you don't know how to draw them properly to begin with.

>what exercises should I do

I recommend "make a bigger canvas" and "use a different brush". At a proper resolution that's basically a solid 3-4 pixel wide black brush. The room for accuracy and detail disappears with the brush strokes, it's much harder to draw when you don't have the precision and space to properly reason about what you're drawing.

ITT: we criticise the art of Chris-chan.

It's flat and has no sense of being three-dimensional, the characters are drawn very inconsistently, Chris has visibly not progressed significantly in drawing for over a decade, and you can just tell he has no concept of figure drawing. Strangely he can draw shoes pretty well for someone with no skills in art.


Some people might think, "I know is CWC autistic, but he's drawn for years, surely he should have gotten a little better", but, despite having drawn over decades, I don't think he's practiced a day in his life, thus the time he's spent doing it is very minimal. He's drawn a lot of crap, but it was maybe a couple of times over months. He definitely doesn't draw every day. This is probably the problem with most autistic artists on DA. I'll give him credit in one area though, if I recall right, his composition usually isn't that bad.


He draws more than most people trying to make it


What do we gain from critiquing a shit artist who we've already made fun of for years for artwork and his own brand of cringe?




What the fuck is the point of a thread like this? to make you feel less insecure by shitting on a retard who can't draw? go to /lolcow/ if you want to do that.


I think Sonichu is a pretty cool guy. Eh draws lots of comcs and doesn't afraid of anything.

I've heard this statement "Why are you doing it if it just frustrates you?" a lot when I mention my feeling toward drawing. Especially to some artists. Like a lot of artists describe this feeling of genuine euphoria with drawing and I've never felt this way toward it. I always viewed drawing as very rigid and systematic like I'm lifting weights or doing math.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the subject? I've always thought after I git gud at art and I feel like I can draw anything that my feelings of anxiety while drawing would go away. Which is the main reason I'm doing it to begin with. So I can create things I can passably consider good, so I don't have to rely on others to draw things for me. But I've read from people that I should be looking for some deeper meaning toward it that I just don't really see.

> If you could tell your younger self a couple of things to help learn art quickly and produce better quality, what would they be?

If you suck at something, break the thing into its components and practice those first before going back.

If your lines are shakey, don't draw boxes, draw lines until your lines are straight, then your boxes will be straight.



Also, this guy is right, too.

>that tail wag


>Which proportions look odd to you?

I was going for a sort of realistic proportions, so everything except the ribcage, I guess. The head looks kind of big, though if I make it a millimeter smaller it looks too small. Then there's the arm stub and the belly area, both of which look kind of small for me.

The head/rib-cage ratio looks good to me for a petite woman. The jawline is high, giving her a round face, which works here for cute points, but if you were trying to make the head smaller (to make the body bigger), more chin and face below the base circle of the skull would be needed.

What was really throwing you off I think, was the tiny shoulders and the arm stub. The redline I did more for myself to see what was off, so I didn't try to change the proportions. The only major adjustments were the shoulders and bringing the waist in at the back to accentuate the butt & hips.

Perhaps he realized he was punching above his weight. It's easy for even a journeyman artist to "find flaws" in someone else's work, it's much more difficult to correct them yourself. That's why when I critique someone I stick to things I'm certain of like "oh the arm is a bit too long" and things of that sort that are purely academic in nature. If I'm not sure of something I might tell someone it looks off and do my best to articulate why I'm getting that impression but I won't get caught riding dirty and saying that I could totally do better or "fix it" myself.

It's demotivating when drawings with ridiculous anatomy manage to look more professional and "finished" than anything i'm able to do.



Just try and deconstruct the parts of them you like. Look for how they use hard edged brushes and soft ones.

If it's just 60 bucks, you should be able to get it if you're serious enough to want it, yeah.




The question is if anyone has a crack or a free alternative.Not if you think if it's a fair price or if it's worth it. If someone was willing to spend money on it, he would have done so to begin with.



Just get the Skelly app, at that point. It's six bucks or something, and it's a good "quick and dirty" pose thing. Obviously nowhere near as in depth as DesignDoll, but it's still an anatomically correct skeleton, that can generally be posed into any pose you can think of.

Someone in /a/ was struggling to fit a reference image onto their screen because the resolution was so small, so I thought it would be cool if you could put an image onto the screen somehow.

And then I decided to procrastinate on drawing by making this little program instead. Webm is more or less self explanatory.

Download is here: https://tsun.itch.io/reference-image-window

Windows only because there's a lot of things I have to do manually with the operating system's functions and I can't bother to learn it all in Linux.

Let me know if you have problems/crashes. Or delete this thread if it's not appropriate here, I guess.


Will try it when I get home, thanks lad
