Once you understand anatomy and some rules in regards to life draw, when do you know it's safe to tackle and stylize your work? It seems like a lot of people who stylize follow the same set of rules of trying to achieve 'cute' or character appeal. But where does one obtain the knowledge for these things?
god damn it, you are you that retard who asked the same thing in the question thread while posting ovopack already before...
stop being retarded, you cant draw for shit in general, because if you could, you wouldnt need to be asking this shit
I hesitate to say when it's "safe" to learn stylization, your skills are (should) be always growing so there's no point where you cross into an arbitrary "good enough" range. Start now and be as critical, read: not self deprecating, of it as with all of you work.
Either study or take some elements from your favorite artists.
When you're studying, note the proportions and form (3d shapes). Manipulate (like rotating the form), and use the measurements to create the same character from a different angle. Manipulation makes it stick in your head more.
Learning from life makes observations and studying easier to do.
Be chill bruh. If it's simple, then simply answer it.
Don't give up drawing OP.
hmm personally I dont think it's something one should strive out for...I believe it should and would happen organically as your brain subcontinously filters out and in stuff you find attractive so your drawings should begin to have some form of cohesiveness..
Study whatever it is that draws you to the style by finding similar artists, and studying from their art.
This doesn't mean blindly redrawing, but actually analyzing their use of form and fundamentals to enhance their style and drawing.
It's fine to try to study whatever stylization interests you as long as you don't get stuck in the "Muh stylization development over fundamentals" thought process.
ignore everyone else, they don't know shit other than parroting loomis loomis vilppu loomis like fucking pokemon.
You don't need to master anatomy or life drawing to stylize, once you have solid construction and understand perspective you can stylize successfully, but you actually need to study design and visual rethoric.
Stylization is not a gimmick, it's a visual language, you need to know what message you're trying to convey with your artwork and what shapes and gestures better aid you to get the message across.
It doesn't, stop being retarded.
That road gets you drawing aliens like Algen and almost commiting sudoku because you don't understand why. Stylization is not subconscious, natural or automatic. It's deliverate, structured and must be honed on it's own through knowledge of design and practice.
learn how it exists in real life,
observe artists you like and how they simplify/exaggerate/design the forms, figure out why they do what they do.
>when do you know it's safe to tackle and stylize your work?
when you can make conscious design choices based on mechanical knowledge of the subject matter instead of just replicating things to look like your chinese cartoons
stylization is a skill that needs to be practiced just like everything else, imo
Ruanjia has no clue how to stylize though. People often seem to confuse when painters talk about their "style" with actual stylization. A style can come together as a mixture of tons of things. From the way you render, the type of brushes you like to use, your brushwork, how you have memorized certain anatomical landmarks etc. That is not what stylization is though. Stylization is conscious shape design, exaggeration or simplification of form, anatomy and gesture for the sake of appeal.
What are some tips on how to keep your style consistent when working with drawing the same character multiple times?
you retards are overthinking this as usual, it all literally comes down to drawing
your characters arent consistent? then draw it fucking hundred times for a few days and youll see how consisten itll get
there are no shortcuts, stop thinking and just draw
