How do I go about correctly showing form? I've worked on 3D stuff for a while. But when it comes to drawing some things I still look flatter than shit. And I am trying to do this without shading to start.
I've watched Proko/Loomis/Vilppu, and i've gone to drawabox but i dont seem to get what I am doing wrong.
Why do people feel like creating new threads when we have a question thread? Whatever I won't get all autistic over that.
1- While working on 3d does help you should really get a serious plane understanding via perspective, I recommend you reading scott robertson.
2- Shading does help a lot on this, again, I recommend you another book by scott (both of these things have to do with perspective and he will often reference it on his second book)
3- Apply all of the above to more complex figures, like humans.
It would really help if you posted some of your drawings to see what's wrong with them (regarding to volume atleast)
Lookin for a "secret technique" ain't gonna help you.
As unsatisfying as it is, the gratification of correctly doing something doesn't come soon after what you've perceived to be "alot of practice", let alone "enough practice". Alot of times, it takes three times longer to understand and correctly execute something than you initially predicted. The act of practice yields the results and if it still hasn't gotten results, you haven't done it enough, even if you think you did. You should be able to figure out these things yourself if you just learn to stop getting hung up on every single attempt. Just fucking practice the basics.
>inb4 you're past the basics
You can watch and read literally every artistic resources on the face of the earth, and you'll still be equally as shitty at art as you were before you started. These tutorials only present you with tools and techniques to use said tools, but without a good amount of practice and mileage, don't POSSESS the tool, you don't OWN the concept; you only KNOW OF the concept. You'll have hundreds of shitty attempts at doing something the right way but it's after that much practice that you actually understand it. Stop trying to be instantly good at something after watching a tutorial, start learning to grind and fuck up a million times.
Of course there needs to be thought and exterior information coming in, but it isn't like you get any better wasting your time remaking the same thread on /ic/ every second day. These things can be figured out easily if one actually attempts to work out the answers themselves.
