Man. I just. Are you supposed to start with a sketch for landscapes or not? Trying to draw from reference but hastily blocking in colours like this makes it hard to keep the correct proportions. Yet the artist youtubers just block in. Although they aren't using reference so I don't know if it makes a difference.

but how do you connect everything when you can't see the line or horizons, points are outisde of the canvas, etc?
Do good artists go through finding those points and lines everytime (they probably just eyeball stuff and get it right cause of habit?) or is there any alternative method?

The reference is still more blue. Also, that island that's roughly in the center of the image is not flat enough, it's throwing the whole thing off. I suggest adding in the clouds as well, because you need to have the complete image before you start refining. When you look at the reference photo, you gauge the terrain in relation to the sky, and it affects how you perceive the terrain. It will never 'look' right in your image because you're missing the sky.

you should use only hard edges while you're learning. soft edges are a bit too easy, you can be wrong and still have something that looks fine, whereas with hard edges you have to be right or it'll look bad, they also teach you a few lessons soft edges don't because of the lack of contrast.

you can always fiddle with the edges after you've done the painting of course, if you want it to look nice a smooth for a blog or something.

i'd also avoid covering up the contour of the face with hair, the cheekbones are one of those hard forms you should endeavour to learn early on.

and don't take my advice as gospel, i'm sure plenty of people get away with doing the opposite, but for me i think it's only logical that working in a way that makes your mistakes more apparent means you will notice them and learn more quickly.

good job overall, especially the lips.

I've been doodling at random throughout my life and have done some art classes way back during school but it's debatable that I retained much.

>>
>>3136531
Same position as you and to be honest anon, we have a huge advantage because of all those classes. You just don't know it yet, but it puts you heads above the people here. You should draw a lot, anything, drawabox is just there to help you do that and so is every other book. If you don't draw, all those methods are useless.

Looking better.

Head is the main flaw imo. My suggestion: copy 10 loomis heads (books in q&a thread linked) really carefully. And then draw 10 of loomis style heads from imagination (not rushed, patiently) - when they're each done correct them by looking at original loomis material. Also pay attention to the hairline.

I bet it will make your heads way better, even if they're drawn with zero reference.

I don't understand what the problem is. You're refining the image over time, getting it closer to the reference.

Why are you painting this reference? Why did you choose it? Generally, when I choose a reference for a landscape, it's because .I find something interesting in it, or something about it is particularly challenging from an artistic point of view. What is your reason for painting it? If you don't have a good reason, stop painting it, and find references with something in it that draws your eye, that you feel the urge to show other people, like "hey, check this out, isn't it cool/interesting/beautiful?"
You just don't paint stuff at random. Have a reason. I wouldn't choose that image for the sky, alone. The lack of sunlight has flattened the colors, color composition-wise it's boring and lifeless, and washed out the water. What's the focus here? Why are people supposed to be looking at this? Even as a photo, I have issues with this shot.
Personally, I find painting from life to be the best for landscapes. Start scouting out places around you, look at it in different kinds of light (Morning, noon, dusk), take some reference pictures of that light, some detail pictures if necessary, and then do some pleine air sketches to capture the colors and basic shapes, to use as reference in the studio.
I just get the feeling you have no connection to this photo, and that's why you're struggling. Pick something that interests you, even if it's just cool shadows some trees are casting.

Holy shit, I thought it looked like trash but then I scrolled down and saw the grass, the stump, the mushrooms and the water. Love the effect. Reminds me of art from like ten years ago you would see on DA. I like the style, but it's no longer around as far as I'm aware. Really gives it that mystical and magical feel. Man, I really love this. Going to save it.

>>3136751
The lip glint looks too realistic. It's a lot more detailed than the rest of the character. Be more sparing with the shine and try not to draw every lip wrinkle unless you are gonna bring the rest of the character more realistically detailed too. Otherwise it sorta makes you look like you have a subconscious vore fetish. The rendering looks alright and the style isn't bad. Not my cup of tea but I can see where you're trying to go with it. If this is a style you want to move towards, maybe try doing some studies from Justice League or Aeon Flux. Not to copy their style but to guide you into the art style you're trying to develop.
Good luck anon.

Hey, thanks a whole bunch for this, I think you're the anon who commented on my last (much more rushed) painting (the snow landscape). I just wanted to let you know that I love and try to soak in as much of your advice as I can, and that's what prompted me to get into more detail with this piece (I was getting frustrated and antsy to just make a nice landscape painting, before I started detailing this and realized I can have the patience to draw tiny bits of grass and rock).
You told me last time to find what appeals to me - with this picture, it is probably the icy, Nordic feeling I get and the potential for a story (I've just been watching Star Wars a lot and this looks like an area where machinery may have been). But yeah, I will probably choose something more appealing next time.
I hope to use your advice alongside this current environment painting course i'm watching to really get into it. Painting the details in this painting yesterday really opened my eyes to how much time, patience and attention to detail landscape painting requires, even if you told me last time about how long it takes (and that you love doing the little details - I'm starting to get it now).

Interesting that you talk about Pleine Air painting - i've been really getting into James Gurney lately, having read most of his book on colour & light and fantasy creatures, and been going through a bunch of his youtube videos - to be honest, I think his paintings are what sparked my sudden interest in painting landscapes and studying light & colour (or at least developing those undeveloped skills of mine). Pleine Air painting looks really tasty when he does it - but that would require I buy a bunch of things and start learning gouache wouldn't it? (Or at least I would want to learn gouache because he does it so nice).
Thanks again for helping me.

It looks like a general book though as opposed to a book for beginners, as in, if you've been drawing for a while and this book will tell you what to keep in mind to have and make better drawings.

>contrast of value.

literally none of those included in your work. its just an outline. we gonna skip the general wobblines of your lines. You gotta be concious about the contour lines weight, make them thinner where the light would hit. now its all over the place, its realy thick on the top of the nipples, and thin on the top of controller but again, thick on the bottom. you follow me?
>>
>>3137659
it will be cool to see you improve.

- hips too small. Looks barely wider than his neck. Wrap your hands around your neck and hips to internalize the difference.
- his skull slopes down way too quick, same in your sketch. The top of a head is relatively even/flat!
- His nose goes down perfectly vertical. That's not how noses work :^)

I never learned how to properly ink.
Before I'd always go through this long process of sketching it out then trace that sketch onto Bristol or whatever and begin inking.
Similarly in digital I ink on a completely separate layer.
A few days ago I heard someone said that when they ink the key is to actually refine the prexisting lines and not use a separate space entirely.

Does anyone know any good information on inking?

I don't want to do art. I don't want to do anything. I feel like I have to do something though, so I do art.

People are like 'if you don't enjoy doing it, don't do it!' but I don't enjoy anything really, so I don't think that advice applies to me.
>>
>>3138589
Obviously you should find advice that works for you.

I don't really believe that the "if you don't enjoy doing it, don't do it" advice works for some people either. Either way, you look like you have your life solved out, so there's nothing more for me to tell you except this.

I tried to draw a robot girl.

How am I doing?

I think the placement of her right arm is garbage.

Pretty neat.

I think you could increase her appeal a lot with some changes. I shamelessly went ahead and adjusted her.

From top to bottom
>changes to hair (bangs start closer to forehead, bangs not as wide)
>changes to face (bigger/lowered eyes, face not as long, smaller nose)
>ribcage smaller and higher up
>thin waist
>rounded hips
>longer legs
>>
>>3138990

Wow that actually is quite an improvement. I still have a lot to learn.

Thanks anon.

I was trying to avoid a huge-eyed kawaii uguu anime face but maybe that's the best option. I think it's probably always the best option.
>>
why is Fun with a pencil so hard?
>>
>>3139005
Part of it is taste, you don't necessarily have to go with the face I did. You could probably give her a less pointy chin, more defined nose and smaller/thinner eyes if you wanted to. I just went with a conventional anime qt face since that's got broad appeal, I guess.
>>
>>3138946
Lookin cool. Think clearly about the lighting. It's really messily shaded. Where are the light sources exactly. Why is there a shadown on the right. Why a gradient in lighting on a flat surface? Draw something simpler (cube, sphere) and shade that accurately. If you need resources I will link them to ya.
>>
>>3139015
I thought why i paint like that 1hour after finished this piece, especially gradient on flat surface

And i realize, i shouldn't paint with imagination this point, thanks

no man draw from imagination, just scale it down and look at ways of getting it right (e.g. loomis).

collar looks very flat. How are your skills regarding drawing cubes and cylinders in perspective from any angle? I imagine practicing that would deffo help.

idk how to fix it
whats wrong?
redline?

that anatomy is gross. like the legs are 3x the length of the torso.
>>
>>3135783
sketch out the perspective you're using lightly before you start maybe, at the moment everything looks really flat and doesnt really look like a combat robot

>>3135785
haunting

>>3135786
needs to be rendered with correct brushes, maybe use harder/textured brushes for stuff like the trees fog and water. from afar the bottom half looks good

>>3135815
symbol drawing, if you draw the shadows to describe the face for demon man it would look alot more menacing, and it's unfinished! finish it and i'm sure it'll look good

>>3135908
line weight and not having such feathery strokes for the outline of the face and any 'hard' transitions would make it look x10 better imo

>>3135989
>>3135993
second one is really nice a little vague, maybe the top one could use softer brushes or a larger block in for the light lime greens

>>3136010
learn how to make sweeping long straight lines and curves, your line work looks too meticulous and rigid, to generate a realistic 'curve' you need a little looseness and flow or some shit, look at this product sketcher -> https://www.instagram.com/p/BS-SEAeh67S/?taken-by=sangwonseok

>>3136082
arms a little short for the darker deerson, could use some muscles in the legs

>>3136104
maybe your observation is great but your lines are so boring, no expression or looseness imo

>>3136377
smooth the light areas near the brow ridge and its pretty good, nice

How necessary is it to have all the recommend materials from Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain? Things like the clear plastic and making viewfinders. If I have to get it then I will but hoping to see what can be done with paper and pencil.

then you need to learn and practice how to draw boxes in perspective, and apply that to the entire head.

your construction is different
what was wrong with my construction?

both legs are dangling limply. lift one leg, and make the other stretch. give the hips some tilt.

i recognise you from when you were still at the same stage 8 months ago

>>3139354
what?
>>
>>3139316
they are gone
to sum it up they look somewhat like the ones i copied, but not very much. the top left downward one is probably completely off. how do i not make the same mistake again? what about the construction is wrong?
>>
>>3139339
Jazza and Syrca have good face proportion videoes
>>
>>3139339
Also, I think I know what your problem is
You're not trying to sketch in the correct way
you keep holding your pen trying to make line on one go
this isn't right
try to slowly sketch it by making small lines that you can correct as you go on
>>
