Hi, I wanted to do something with my life, bought a fine sketch notebook and pencils. Do you know any really good tutorial websites, especially for drawing naturalistic portraits and animals?

Also, you should find some cheap/free community classes on sketching and fine art.

I'll list for you my first drawing lesson.
>Get 10 pieces of printer paper
>Two pages each, front and back (no rulers)
>Straight lines traveling across the page
>One inch circles (aprox. 88 per page side)
>One inch squares (aprox. 88 per side)
>One inch triangles (same)
>One inch cylinders (same)

Once you have all 20 sides done you will have a good base to start working off.

I think I got lines and circles after geometric analisys, but thanks, I'll go ask /ic/

About finding cheap/free classes I'm more interested about web ones, I don't really like people in person

my answer is up there, I didn't click reply, sorry

(inches are disturbing really)

If you don't like people in person, than don't get into fine art. If you can't take a critique you will never get anywhere.

You should go into writing if you want to stay home.
>>
>>242203
I like critique, every kind, really : )

I was writing a lot, and some of it was good, but then I discovered drugs and now nothing seems interesting enough to write about

Explain?

I think that it's the best just to tackle it w/out training. Works for me.

do not listen to this person. If you don't practice and study, you'll never get good, and you'll just symbol draw for your entire life
>>
>>242239
symbol draw?
>>
>>242241
Drawing without regard for the 3D structure of objects. Like when Egyptians draw eyes like in OP's pic even when people turn their heads sideways.

Take a look at Preston Blair's Cartoon Animation. It's the bible of traditional animation and has good tips on character design and columetric drawing.

When you draw what you think that you see, and not what you really see. This is the first thing you need to practice away, in order to be remotely good at drawing.

Just read this and it'll get you started
