I want to learn how to draw but I have no idea from where to start. Do you have any advice for me? I'm desperate seeing all of you talented people drawing amazingly well but I can't even draw a line T_T I love yr blog <33
alright i suck at advice and stuff but i legitly just got on desktop so i could answer this ;)
So you might not know this but ive been drawing for almost three weeks, i mean as a hobby, i have to draw on art class but nothing so big or meaningful so yeah.
So i have no idea where to start, i’d say just do what feels right so you can find your own style but you also gotta know how things work, something i’ve found very very important is:
References i swear theres nothing more important than this. (i’ll add links at the end). If youre gonna start you need lots of references, like a lot, just stare at things arounf you, figure how they work, how they look. Stare at pics of your favourite idol (i stared at pics of Namjoon for like 10 mins before i drew him for the first time, hes too beautiful #blessed)
Finding inspiration: what do you wanna draw? do you wanna draw humans? doggos? inanimated objects? potatoes? you choose, you can do it
Dont mind of it doesnt look good. there’s always place for improving, if you check out my fanfics from three years ago and compare them to now theyre shit. Shitty english, shitty writing, 1ST PERSON LIKE WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME, im using writing as an example bc its what ive been doing the longest, (im as Jahssel on AO3 shamelessSelfPromo) So yeah dont mind much if you cant draw a line, keep on trying! you’ll get better
Don’t be afraid of trying new things. You wanna start drawing? do it! You are free to do as you please, who knows you might be the next Van Gogh (no one liked his art back then like EXCUSE YOU)
Don’t be afraid of asking for help!!! I’ve literally being going around asking for advice bc im not good at it (yes im scarred for life thanks mom) If you cant draw something if you dont seem to get it right just ask someone you consider good at it for help, most ppl on tumblr are really nice (esp in the ask blog community) and they’ll help you with no hesitation
Dont Give Up: even when you think things are just not going right dong give up, never give up, Even if youre seeing no improvement dont give up on it. You’ll get better at it you just have to remeber Practice Makes Perfectyou just gotta keep on trying and trying until you get it right. When i was younger i couldnt swim for shit, i couldnt even get in the water, but i didnt give up on it and i’m now Haruka Nanase (i love swimming so fucking much) so o dont give up
Heroes never die!
Here are the references i use most of the time (ive got them saved pls
Theres this thing called same face sindrome in which al your charactesrs look the same? here’s how to avoid it (all links are on tumblr dont worry)(also long thingies bc i hate when im on app and i have to press the goddamn x like my fat fingers cant do that)
asdfjkl; thank you guys so much??? ;A;;;;; omg I would have never thought I would get this far in tumblr asdfjk;l TTATT I started this blog 2 years ago just for random doodles and stuff :’D thank you guys so much asdfjkl; your support means so much to me and it really makes me happy to see so many people who enjoy my art TTvTT I’ve never done an appreciation post on tumblr before (unlike other social medias) which is a bit odd, but I wanted to take this opportunity and say I love y’all <3
I might hold an art raffle here but idk if anyone would be interested TT7TT I’ve seen others do it but I’ve never actually done it myself on tumblr *v* we’ll see
and excuse the super quick drawing lmao there will be a speedpaint for that too but idk if I want to upload it or not *v*
here’s one of my recent ocs i haven’t posted art of. his head shape changes a lot so this isn’t a definite version of him just a test doodle. he’s a v nervous n skittish robot praying mantis scientist. that’s a mouthful. he’s kinda nervous but when it comes to his job he’s dedicated and usually very accurate. he just can’t rlly talk to people normally. his body structure is a bit different from a normal praying mantis
[plz dont make this nsfw i needed an excuse for him to b laying down like that. laying mantis.]
[[plus he can probably fall over like super easily]]
Alright, I feel like I need some stuff to address about my social medias and activity in general
Im still alive yesyes I know it doesnt seem like it, its mostly because Im so scatter brained I can barely finish one doodle without making another one, I also hardly check tumblr anymore so Im not exactly caught up on current on-goings
I do want to update my art blog, pokemon blog, and eventually full-time work on my original comic/ask blog but currently Im having issues doing that
If I can Ill post whatever I finish, although because Im trying to broaden my poses, sketches, and in-all quality, it’ll take a long time until Im happy with it
I dont have any excuses, so Im just gonna say, dont expect tons of art but occasional doodles of random ideas and shitposts, (@ my pokemon blog: Ill probably post interactions, asks, more so then Ill post on my art blog)
[Flirt meme:] Yao-san, it's been awhile.. yes? You never change since we last met. Maybe you still hated me.... but... ah, I don't want to make you uncomfortable.. I just want to tell you that... I miss your cookings. and so you. *smiles gently* Please excuse my interruption. *bows then walks away*
“… Still hating you? Uncomfortable? Don’t just decide for me.”
“I feel hungry, I’m taking a little break. Hey, don’t just drop by and leave… You miss my cooking, right? 老实说(Be honest) I missed you a bit too so…”
1) Vic: “Kellin?”
2) Vic: “What are you do-”
3) Vic and Kellin: “…”
4) Kellin: “I’m sorry I’ll just”
5) Vic: “Kellin wait!”
6) Kellin: “Wha-”
I’m trying out side view doodles so yeah here’s a cute lil kellic kissing scene for all you kellic trash. Still needs some work but I’m pretty happy with it.
Excuse the shitty picture quality and it looking choppy and weird. I swear it’s not photoshopped or anything (besides I don’t suck at photoshop THAT much) it’s just my shitty pano camera taking skills.
IF THIS POST GETS OVER 100 NOTES ILL MAKE A FUCKING COLLAGE OF VIC FUENTES’ LITTLE TOOTH.
[PLEASE DONT STEAL OR REPOST WITHOUT PERMISSION OR ILL STAB A BITCH]
In light of Markiplier’s call to spread goodness into the tag, I decided to post these doodles I did a while back (obviously, judging by the glasses and floof). I’ll never finish these so I just decided to ink them (plus it gave me an excuse to use my new .01 Pigma Micron pen *artist squee*)
Drawing real people is very odd to me but he’s so gosh darn animated, it actually makes it easier XD
I’m going to try posting a new comic or doodle everyday this week. I wish I had done hourly comics over the weekend, but really, I just wanted an excuse to make more doodles and less polished comics. So just that is what I’ll do!
noyzzkapow said: When I draw fanart I do the same #fff white skin just so I don’t have to think about skin color haha. Makes it easier.
sometimes I do the same esp in doodles because it’s faster than coloring and shading everything and making it fit into a color palette, besides it’s just an harmless neutral color and people can see it as they want
but of course they use that as excuse to say “I draw everyone white”, and they even expect me to take them seriously when they say that
I just wanted to make a quick doodle of the seriously amazing flapflaps aka mortem3r!
If you ever see this suzy, just know you’re a huge inspiration to me! If I ever have a bad day, I just turn on one of your videos and it cheers me up so much! Thank you so much for what you do and keep being amazing!
