Art improvement pathway(?), a guide by a noob
I've been watching a lot of tutorials on Bilibili(an Asian version of youtube), there is a lot of useful art tutorials on there, so I figured I'll summarize what I've learned and share them here .
First, FUNDAMENTALS ARE FUCKING IMPORTANT.
apparently, you need to learn, perspective, value, lighting, composition, colour theory, anatomy, and probably much more.
That's a lot to take in, and there is no way you and I can practice and master them all at once.
so, we have to target them one by one.
tldr; draw rooms to practice perspective
this is a prominent factor that affects ALL of your drawings(i think)
once you master perspective, you can draw simple objects better under perspective, and if you can draw simple objects, you can draw complex objects better under perspective, which is basically what you need to draw creatures, humans(hentais) and environments. if you intend to draw things in this universe, since everything is affected by perspective here, perspective is a must. 0m0
How to practice perspective
Before you practice, you need to understand how perspective work, you must understand things such as 1 point, 2 point and 3 point perspectives and then apply that knowledge when you are practicing.
here are some useful videos
Right now, to my limited understanding, you can practice by finding random rooms on google and simply drawing over it first, and then draw it freehand with the reference image beside it. it is gonna suck major ass at first, but that's fine
- search interior design or Ikea rooms on google to get some juicy images, don't choose ones that are too complicated.
- a 30 minute to 1-hour practice session should be enough
here is an example, yea it's ugly
This is just what I've learned watching those videos, I could be wrong, so please take this with a grain of salt.
If you have anything to add on or any suggestions, don't hesitate to comment. :3
