hihi!!!! it’s been a while! now that i’m almost back from my semi-hiatus i’ve decided to go on a following spree!! (i’ve changed my url once again; i used to be tendou). so please REBLOG / LIKE if you post any of the following:
Hi! I'm the anon who was asking a lot of questions lolololol and thank you really! For answering my questions 😁this is last one tho (I think) could u possibly give me some tips on drawing?
No worries!! I guess I think of a few general tips for you but if you have anything specific you’d like to know as well feel free to ask me :D
1. Create an inspiration side blog and reblog everything that inspires you! If you’re looking for an inspo boost you’ll have a nice reference point. You can even use a tagging system so you can find things that inspire background ideas or colouring ideas and then you can specifically take a look at those examples you’ve saved. Here’s an example of mine! IMPORTANT: if you’re going to copy something as a reference/practice exercise, DONT post it online unless you have explicit permission from the artist you copied from. If something is recognisably copied it’s bad to post w/out permission BUT if you copied a technique and it’s NOT recognisable at all then congrats you’re on the way to developing your own voice! There’s nothing that’s fully original but if you can put your own twist on something then that’s fab!
2. If you’re posting online, don’t be disheartened by lack of notes. Remember there are probably thousands of people posting stuff every day that get 0-3 notes. It’s not a sign that you’re bad, just that you haven’t been noticed yet so you gotta keep working! Try to beat your own note score rather than comparing yourself to others! I feel like competing with yourself is always a fast way to improve! BONUS TIP for posting online: From my experience, artwork with a popular ship in it gets a lot more attention than original stuff or singular people when you don’t have a big following. If you’re passionate about a ship, draw stuff with them in it (doesn’t even have to necessarily be romantic, they could just be hangin out) and make use of tagging it with the ship tag! Shippers are thirsty and will trawl tags - that’s where you’re more likely to get noticed!
3. The classic: Practice. Again, compete with yourself rather than comparing yourself to others. Do something better than your last drawing but don’t worry if it’s not levels above.
5. Having a reference blog is also good, or just knowing one you can look up. This is mine here you’re welcome to refer to! I tag everything with ANY word I think refers to the image (including pluralising it) so that when I go on it and I’m looking for something specific I can generally just type what I’m looking for and find it. (I.e you could go onto my reference blog and probably type /tagged/trees at the end of the url and find a bunch of posts relating to helping u draw trees)
6. You’re allowed to use references! Don’t feel like you’re a cheat if you can’t draw a pose from your head! Tracing a photo is fine when you’re learning, too, especially if you took the photo but remember if you wanna be posing stuff on your own work on using a reference without tracing!
WELL! I think that’s the best I can offer for general tips! Sorry that got kinda long hahaha..! I hope this helps! If there’s anything I didn’t cover that you’re curious about shoot me another message :D
hello everyone! I know I haven’t been as active lately, school has been insanely busy, and I’m playing tennis 6 days a week now (bonus: I’m getting kinda tan!), but you have all been kind enough to follow me and stick with me through all this.
