Seeing as I have the skill level of -10/10 Where in the world do I start? Along with drawabox, what should I be doing to go from not being able to draw a damn thing, to being able to do realistic character art?
Numerous people have said to avoid the sticky so thats what I am doing. And read the Loomis books. Proko, I can't stand his cringeworthy humor. And Robertson seemingly has an extreme hardon for mechs. So what should I do aside from drawabox?
get lost cuck, I like Hampton's approach more
Keys to Drawing
If you are a beginner the first book you should be going through is Keys to Drawing
Not Loomis, not Vilppu, not Hampton, these are figure drawing books. Figure drawing is not a beginner thing, still life drawing is what a beginner should be doing. You shouldn't be tackling the figure seriously until you're competent enough to draw things that are less difficult than the figure.
>avoid the sticky
You're retarded, even if you don't like some of the authors or the materials the principles taught are the exact same and the only difference between them is the method in how they're taught. Stop treating every single author, book, video series and collective resource like it's own fucking imperious dogmatic thing and realize it's not a means to an end. Go through them all and after learning and taking in what they have to offer formulate your opinion.
