hellooo! im kind of a perfectionist so i like to do all those little details and everything first, but i see all these tutorials and writing how-to's to make basic shapes first, which i dont doubt for a second is wrong or anything i mean ive seen my friends and other artists do it that way and make beautiful art works. mine always come out wonky and disgusting causing me to wrinkle them up and throw them away, but i dont want to do that but if i do it the other way i get anxiety,,, help?
I’m not really sure how to answer >.< Basic shapes is for sure the best way to plan out any drawing, because if you get the shapes in the right places at the correct ratios, your final detailed piece will be more accurate. I think it’s completely normal to feel frustration with your art, and to crumple it up, and try again. The more you re-draw the same thing the better that drawing will be. Revisions and self-reflection will only help you :) Just keep practicing and trust me you’ll get there!
