Post your scribbles, doodles, chicken scratches, sketches etc. here. Let's make some art. I'll start with some things that I made quite a while back but never really got around to finishing.

>>861>ClydecashAhh, I see you're a man of culture as well.In seriousness though, I would like to draw but I can't make the effort to do so and reduce the perfect ideas in my mind to the utter failure of my ability to realise them with my hands.I always found this option of the Liberal Crime Squad character creation meaningful"In junior high school…I drew things, a lot. I was drawing a world better than this."That's what I would like to do. Draw a world better than this. But I don't have the strength.Good for you, everyone who is out here being creative, I wish you the best of luck.


>>871Art isn't super hard. I'm personally best when i'm tracing things and warping it into a different image, because my mind's eye doesn't translate mental images into art very well. My pictures were either traced from some source or were methodically drawn with rulers or symmetrical, rather than just being free-handed or anything. You should try that, because it usually looks really good in the end, and it's good for beginners. I can't draw things without a crutch or cool tools, and i can't add color well which is why my best stuff is sketches, and that's the reason i gave up on art.


>>871>In seriousness though, I would like to draw but I can't make the effort to do so and reduce the perfect ideas in my mind to the utter failure of my ability to realise them with my hands.That's how you get good at it. That's how learning works. If you can't see the flaws with what you're drawing you get stuck drawing like Chris Chan or Tim Buckley forever. You're supposed to be able to find flaws with what you draw, so that the next drawing you can focus on that aspect and do better next time. It's a slow process. You can't really take shortcuts with it.Each time you draw something find something, usually something that really sticks out, and try to do better with that next time. Look up other people's techniques or advice if you have to. If you get stuck on a certain thing take a break from that for a while and go back with fresher eyes. Review your progress on improving certain things to see how you've improved and how you haven't. And of course show other people, because they'll notice flaws you don't.

http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/^In memory of the old /loomis/ board of 8chan, here's a page for getting all of Andrew Loomis' books on drawing things, pencil and otherwise, free in pdf form.


>>881Thank you gomrad.


>>881Every time I see 'loomis' I just think of Harvester


>>881Recently I've seen a backlash against recommending Loomis to beginners. I reckon at least half of it is contrarianism, but I also find that manikin methods need a strong backing in fast/intuitive perspective, or else progress will be slow. I don't mean VP's and grids so much as the general behaviour of 3D solids as they rotate.The free tutorials on Drawabox.com are largely dedicated to that.


For the human figure Glenn Vilppu has helped me improved a lot. He focuses particularly hard on gesture.Good luck drawing comrades.https://mega.nz/#F!rYhFlIQL!OX7slmxiS3Vn6JGsY9mUBw

>>871if you want to easily start doodling, start with flowers2D, most simple formsflowers have curves, long lines, details you can addno need to read books on how to draw, you can just do itand remember, the rubber is your friend


Learn perspective and construction before you try to invent things from imagination. Check out draw a box


Also use reference but dont trace


Why the fuck did you bump this thread when
A) its been dead for over a year
B) there is a current and active drawing thread.
Do a fucking flip, faggot.


sorry i am the big dumb.
