What? XD Just about everyone you see on deviantart who got to where they are with their amazing art had a phase where they drew in an anime form that wasn't anatomically correct :'D Who the hell said it is easier to draw in realism and go backwards to draw in anime?
Everyone, because if you draw realism first you have a better grasp on anatomy when if you go anime first you end up with large yaoi hands, big small heads to long body proportions, long legs and stuff like that uvu
I dont regret doing realism first since i sorta have that down now at least but its still aggrivating because anime is supposed to be simpler lmfao
SHHHHHHHHHHHHH lol XD I started off drawing when I was 4 and have not stopped since :'D I have been improving my anatomy through an realistic-anime style that has hopefully correct anatomy but still stylized to look anime-ish lol
