Anyone else feel like they need to lose weight since getting into drawing?
I just eel so fat compared to the characters I draw.
There's nothing wrong with wanting to be healthy. It's natural and even more so if you're a healthy sexual being.
I went from a skinny 125 to a trim and muscular 170 when trying to understand anatomy better by working out extensively. I was my own anatomy reference for years. I also got a lot more attention even though my face is forgettable.
On the plus side you'll feel better, have more confidence, move without joint or ligament pains. Diet precedes a health body and you will feel like you have 100 times more energy. As a female, your waist will be smaller, ass more tone, more endurance for fucking longer if you have the right partners.
TL:DR? It's easy if you have self discipline.
I was a /fit/izen pre-Quazimodo Era. Learning about muscles and fine motor movements has helped with lifting and learning anatomy for drawing, for sure. I use myself as a reference every now and then, but I'm still a little pudgy for my liking (cardio ensues).
If anyone on /ic/ is curious, just read the sticky on /fit/ and maybe look into the Question's Thread and Routine Inspection; the rest of the board has gone straight to hell with shit/pol/sting and stereotypical douchebag shit.
>mfw thinking about Bridgman's drawings on the treadmill to understand the milf's ass on the treadmill in front of me
Actually i was naturally more able in physical exercise so I always kept doing it. Drawing exhausted me after only a couple sketches, but my endurance for physical pain was better. It also kept my confidence up.
With the Rocky soundtrack handy anybody can get in shape.
I think it is because as an artist that studies the human body you start to see how beautiful it is which makes you more aware of how disgusting your shapeless body is. When ever I try to photocopy a pretty celebrity I end up viewing them to be 10x prettier than when I started drawing them.
>tfw I lost quite a lot of weight since I learned some basic health stuff on a random ocassion
>tfw still feel like shit because manboobs won't go away, probably gyno or whatever it's called
>tfw even after getting fit I could easily be a walking joke and I wouldn't possibly know, so I'm still scared
Hey /fit/ people, does anybody know this crap gets any better if I gain more muscles and a healthier body? or would these evil pieces of crap stay there even after the change of the underlaying structure?
how does it feel to finally realize how disgusting you are?
i barely even fucking moved the first 17 years of my life and i was skinny as fuck. It helps when your mom goes on family diets and nobody in the house but you can cook decently though.
Hate to say it, because i fucking hate fat people, but i think its mostly genetic for people like us.
But if youre fat theres no fucking reason for that and fuck off.
you've already trapped her but know that shell get just as fat as you out of spite.
>one gallon of milk per day
I do not recommend this. I drank consistently around 3/4 of gallon per day back in middle school and it did worse for my growth. (and I did do 1-2 hours of sport per day because it was mandatory in our school) What happened was:
I eventually began to be lactose intolerant to dietary product after 6 months and went to see the doctor because apparently my milk consumption was so overboard that my stomache had trouble on digesting all those fatty molecule so much that it sent a signal stop ingesting it. I then became known as the Farting one because every 20 minutes I would fart so badly that the school eventually specially ordered soy milk for me. luckily my peers were mostly understandable as they have witnessed my milk conquest every morning so they knew but were still kinda pissed off every time i fart...
and about the growth schtick... I was 12 at the time so after the first 4 months I've grown 2 inches but after that there hasn't been any sign of growth at all even if I drank soy milk everyday. I've been the same height until I became 18 but only grew half an inch and it stopped right there. I did sport regularly back then so I can say that it was more genes than anything when it comes to height growth than milk consumption. But if you want muscles it should be not calcium but protein that you should be looking for.
Milk has a lot of protein in it, that's the point of drinking a lot of it to begin with
>2.5 inches over at least six years
Are you a vegetarian by chance? A shitty diet with no animal protein and too much cardio would definitely stunt your growth.
I ate meat like a caveman plus a balance of everything else, played basketball since middle school and went into bodybuilding the senior year of high school.
I still remained at 5'10". Sometimes no matter how hard you want to be tall and how much you try to fool fate, your body understand you live in a tropical climate metropoli, not the fucking highlands, so 5'10" is more than enough.
Oh you're 5'10? That's normal, and if you live in a tropical climate you're probably a brown person too so you're likely taller than most of your peers lol. If you were 5'7 when you were 12 that's huge.
>some girls thought I came to model
>thinking this is a good thing
>implying its not because you look like a complete normalfag who can't even draw
>implying its not because they saw your "art" and figured you couldn't be there to draw
I don't know where you come from, but where I come from, figure drawing models are 95% ugly.
Sounds like you just stopped growing, and are short. Milk isn't gonna stunt your growth. I was my full height at 14.
Milk has the most protien per $ except maybe protein powder.
Anyone else feel like they need to gain muscles since getting into drawing?
I just feel so thin compared to the characters I draw.
Anyone else feel like they need to enlarge their eyes since getting into drawing?
I just feel so 3dpd compared to the characters I draw.
Just start drawing people of all shapes and sizes rather than just one type of grill.
the idea is correct, its a good idea to learn how to draw wrinkles, fat, and other imperfections you don't always get with skinny/not-fat sized models. And when working with photographs people have a tendency to only keep the ones that they find attractive.
however, the fact he's only posting old, fat, and generally unattractive people ruins that because he's missing gigantic swaths of body types by focusing on these in particular.
I was posting those because they're far more rare than skinny/attractive. I could post all my skinny and attractive as well but everybody with a reference collection has a ton of those already.
I'm doing it now.
Anyone wanna have a get git/get fit buddy?
>I just eel so fat compared to the characters I draw
Me too... being a fat eel in this thin humanoid stereotyped world sucks, brah.
What appeals to you is 1 thing, and its perfectly fine to draw that. However, its important to be well rounded.
For example, say you only practice drawing thing cute girls, now suddenly you need to draw a guy fighting a giant pig monster.
You have no idea how to draw well defined muscles or masculine features, you have no idea how to draw the fat overlaps on the pig monster or how to draw him with distasteful features. You can look up references and have a general idea how to do it, but when putting it into practice it will be painfully obvious for everyone to see.
This is not to say you shouldn't draw attractive people, but you should be able to draw both ends of the spectrum if you expect to get anywhere beyond drawing animus all day.
>mfw I have a huge milf fetish
I know this wasnt the purpose for these figures but uh...thanks...
my dick only gets semi think years of porn and wanking off ave killed it, i just dont get aroused anymore, even loli shit dont do it, had a tight girl on me once too at a party had to politely reject her so she didnt find out ima limp dick, shit is killing me how to get hard again?? People i know said stop watching porn and dont jerk it will come back over time
you must be such an incredibly boring person to be around
Sure, I ccan see that. It can be important and useful to have a variety of references.
I considered using my body as a reference, but then I remembered I wanted to draw attractive people.
It's odd how many photos of real people would be criticized for poor anatomy if they were drawn, particularly if stylized.
I've noticed this problem when looking for reference. It really is hard to find pictures that both look aesthetically appealing and anatomically correct.
Yes there's a lot of factors that lead into that problem. The vast majority of still images of nude women are photoshopped, very specifically lit, airbrushed with makeup, and are of people who look attractive in 2 dimensions. It distorts and replaces any image of what people actually looks like. It's what I mean when I say that it's important to have a verity of references so you don't loose sight of this.
The notion of simulacrum no longer applies when the image in our minds of the real has been replaced by the fake.
If you're only drawing skinny people you're not keeping yourself well rounded as an artist. What'll you do when you need to draw a fat person for a project?
But yeah I have the same problem regardless. It's easier to find references that are one body type and just..bleh.
but its probably a good thing, let it motivate you. Why be unhealthy?
