my art progress!

Recommended Posts

so I've been learning how to draw for almost a month now? I think? and I'm still garbage! but I know that one day, I'll actually get good! so I want to show you guys what I've done so far! so you guys can also experience the journey of me getting good at art!

so @Blue Moth is the one that has been teaching me and I'm so grateful, he was also the one who gave me that push to actually learn because I've always wanted to learn but I've always doubted myself that I'll actually get good. so thank you so much Blue!

so first thing that I was told to do was deconstruct a bunch of stuff, so here's all the stuff I deconstructed!

they're all of varying qualities from being pretty good to looking like straight garbage, I haven't deconstructed anything since blue told me to so I should really get on that

but more importantly, blue taught me how to draw a face! so here's my faces that I drew

IMG_0191.thumb.JPG.e48802d0b1dabab35148f2d69d764de2.JPG

this is the first face I drew and I can only simply describe this demon as mega mind 2.0, I have hundreds of insults for this guy but you can come up with your own!

I drew these two the day after, they were an improvement, but still felt unnatural to me, you can agree, right?

IMG_0196.thumb.JPG.5c8c5d916ba83e3695bdc4495a97298b.JPG

day after, I drew these, they suck, still too unnatural, but they were improving!

day after is the turning point in my opinion, so me and blue were on a call and he made me draw a face on the spot and it was surprisingly good!

IMG_0244.thumb.JPG.3e0f8a1ffed978e086f9d369d97ea754.JPG

so three days ago, I drew these, and I'm pretty happy with both, but it's important to not look at tiffany's hair, that was just a failed addition

IMG_0262.thumb.JPG.cdb66d7714a2da0e48d7e32dfb86353b.JPG

and two days ago I drew this guy, the different facial stuff like glasses and earing were stuff that I wanted to add onto the character's without blue recommending me to add them, I just added them myself!

IMG_0278.thumb.JPG.7412af5298b7e1ebb9b43b403fb34cac.JPG

and THIS is what I drew today! I drew it without asking blue for any tips or consulting him on it, why? because I'm a rebel! and stuff! but I'm really proud of how this turned out, I didn't trace or anything, I just looked at the original and tried to draw it and this is what I came out with! so @Blue Moth if you're reading this, do this look good? what can I do to improve

I'll try to post a progress update every month at LEAST but I might forget, if I do, remind me, unless nobody cares about this thread, if so, I'd be happy to hide it!

ok, hope you have good rest of you 24 hours!

So when you're deconstructing things, you have to consider joints. Such as elbows, knees, etc. This is why you see a lot of shoulders and elbows sketched out as a circle with lines attached. It becomes more complicated with animals, basically. But deconstruction of shapes applies more to constructing a "skeleton" rather than, well. A buncha random rectangles and circles smashed together as something you build off of for a drawing

Edit: That was poor wording, what I'm trying to say is that you're greatly oversimplifying things like bodies, limbs, getting the shapes wrong, or just outlining the thing outright. 

So instead of an arm being a rectangle, it would be like this

oh! I get what you mean, I'll try to take that in to consideration next time I deconstruct something!

Also, don't push your pencil too hard into the paper. Makes it easier to erase.

I've been trying to be more lenient, but I just forget sometimes 

I'm used to only writing so I by instinct push my pencil too hard into the paper but I've been trying to not do that

It's based on weight in the wrist. If your wrist feels heavy, that's the pain telling you to stop. Also avoids tunnelvision.

oh yeah, tunnel vision, I didn't know what that was until just now

I sometimes get that when I try to draw when I'm tried, I can barely focus, it really sucks
