Still not sure what I want to print, so went back to scrolling through the Strange Animals twitter feed and trying to make costumed people hybrid things. Working on foreshortening, and eventually forcing myself into more dynamic poses. Definitely had to reference a dancer image for that second to last one.

My scanner is dead, would anybody mind photographs (in shitty lighting conditions) of sketchbook stuff here?

Also thank you very much for making this thread - I had the idea of making a "let's learn to draw" thread, but I'm not quite qualified to do that considering I still suck shit at art.

:D Eee! Someone recognized them! They're just random breed examples; I opened up a little sketch shop on the art forums there, and needed examples, so I used a random number generator to pick breed, sex, and general expression.

That said, this guy is a friend's dragon. Behold, a pudgeloaf. :3

I feel like I haven't made any art progress in 2 years, and I'm super bummed out about it. Of course, I don't get nearly enough practice, but what practice I do get seems to be doing absolutely nothing.

How do I suck at art less? How do I improve at art better?

Maybe I should just try to get a shitload of practice? But I doubt I'd have the self-discipline to stick to that for long.

Doodle, draw, or sketch every day. Even if it's just a goofy smiley face or a page in a pocket moleskine sketchpad. I have thousands of little pieces of scratch paper with silly doodles on them all over my apartment. Keeping in practice like this will help you slowly improve steadily even if you don't realize it. Take a break from worrying about "big" art projects and just have fun with little day-to-day ones. You'll notice a marked improvement when you come back to your more dedicated/important projects.

Another thing to get into is a PaintChat website (if you use a drawing tablet) like Mangamasters (https://www.mangamasters.com/paintchat/) or Niko's Pchat (http://pchat.mine.nu/). There are a lot of really great and friendly artists that can give really really useful and practical advice on how to improve your craft.

Drawing of Paula Scher before my flight. She was a cool person I got to meet, and I tried drawing her face by the quote, but it ended up looking terrible, so it's full size on this page. It's only now that I realize creating a drawing of someone you met might be a little strange. Plus I just couldn't seem to get her age quite right. Only one or two extra lines just ages the hell out of people

Pff, try, like, 4 years. I don't know what kind of advice a habitual procrastinator like me could give but from where I've went wrong, perhaps make drawing a habit rather than a chore. If you force yourself to draw you're just going to have a bad time with it and associate it with failure more and more each time. In such cases it's important to know it's not drawing's fault, it's your approach to it. Clear your head and take a deep breath, and focus on the process rather than the end result.

You were talking about not knowing how to progress, shading is a good place to start.
You're drawing from life, which is awesome, and you can clearly see the importance of using tone to define shadow, you're just not pushing that tone far enough, or letting it carry enough of the information in your drawings.
Look at this pumpkin. You've drawn it well, but it's held back, because you're only using the line art to define the shape, then timidly scribbling in the shadows without committing to them.
Have a look at the sort of stuff that comes up when you google 'pencil gradient', try out some of those gradients yourself on the paper you like to use, and then try some drawings where you try to capture the shadows of your reference, and let the darkest parts of the picture be a lot darker than that pale gray you have going at the moment.
From the pictures of yours I can see on this page, I think it'll help you move forwards a step.

Slightly off-topic, but what does it feel like to use brush pens? Is it more like a pencil, or more like a paintbrush? I've always hated inking because I feel like I can never get the line quality I want with Microns without swapping between pens constantly, but I have trouble with paintbrushes because -- maybe my technique just sucks (or the brushes I've used :B), but I can never get a fine line with them. It's either "oh look three bristles maybe contacted the paper" or "WHOOPS THE LINE BLED EVERYWHERE AND NOW IT'S A SPLOTCH," no in-between. x3;

On-topic, have a fluffy dragon merchant.

I really love using brushes to ink, but carrying acrylic ink, brushes, cleaner, water and all that jazz doesn't make sense for just sketches. The first pen brush I used was the Micron brush pen, and it really sucked. The brush started out stiff, and after a few uses the point split and wouldn't draw smooth or thin lines again. Also tried using water brush pens, both filling the chamber with ink and leaving it empty. Filling the chamber just caused the thing to clog, probably due to using acrylic ink. Naomi Romero suggested these Pilot pocket brush pens (http://tinyurl.com/jmd7hpx) and it has been working really well so far! No bleeding problems on regular sulphite drawing paper or bristol.

As for use, it takes a bit of getting used to, since you're holding it like a pen, but it acts like a brush (obvious point, I guess). When I'm using it, I'm moving my whole hand/arm, instead of resting the hand on the paper and just rotating the wrist. They're good if you like exaggerated linework and going hog wild with varying thickness. If you want exact control over line width, pens are still the best.  Like any tool, it just takes practice to get the feel for it. Also, you're still going to be swapping out brushes. After a certain size the line variance starts to look 'wrong', so you swap up to a larger brush. The same thing happens in digital inking, now that I think on it.

I really loathe to say things like this, but in this case the brush quality does matter. No one's saying you have to get sable brushes, but high enough quality that they keep a point. Keeping ink out of the ferrule, cleaning after use, and reshaping the bristles will help make brushes last. Master's brush cleaner is amazing for this. Sorry if I'm repeating things you already know!

No no, most of this is new to me -- the last art class I took was in eighth grade, and I'm pretty much self-taught, so any information on tools and techniques I can get is welcome! x3;

That said, dammit. Pencils have spoiled me. I hate breaking my flow to search for another pen or pencil unless I'm swapping colors. x3; I MUCH prefer pencil or colored pencil to any liquid medium.... Want a finer point? Just sharpen it. Want a duller point? Just adjust the angle you hold it at, or scribble a bit to wear down the point. Want a thicker line, thinner line, lighter line, darker line? Change your pressure or your angle and hey presto -- no tool swapping required, just go! x3;

Problem is I feel like people expect ink or look down on pencil/colored pencil work as being lazy or unfinished these days. But that may be more sadbrains-related than art. x3; Thank you!

I like to draw my player's D&D characters, and I finally figured out how to post images (I am dumb). Look!

From left to right: Moody drow druid, divination wizard who can't tell the difference between normal dreams and visions, and a gnome ranger with her corgi companion! I kinda fucked up the wizard's hair and the ranger's mouth.

The dragonborn paladin and bard/rogue fight a paper mâché Rhemoraz in a library while the rest of the party attempts to escape out a window. One of them failed his climb check.

To cap it off I also found out about Colors 3D over the weekend and bought it because it was criminally cheap. I painted a Koffing from memory to test it out. His skull and bones are below his dumb mouth, aren't they?

Don't worry, the spriters on the first pokemon game made the same mistake.

Drawings from last night:

The hot bean water comment was from someone in this forum (maybe even this thread?). I thought about it again last night and had a good laugh.

The Sexy Sweater Gang was after an image of these dudes in knitted sweaters  for an ad. I'm sure you've seen it before.

Hello, I'm back to clog up this thread with more dumb journal sketches.

Can you tell I was listening to the Findumb episode? It was supposed to say "That's One Keen Ween", but the bell end on the last N makes it look like "That's One Keen Weed".

Was on a good roll with faces until the last one, where the expression was a little too... yaoi? That one face specifically. If you want to practice faces, Line of Action (https://line-of-action.com/practice-tools/) has an okay faces and expressions collection. It's not as good as their figures one, but there's a decent range of races mixed in there.

Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to separate this from the doodles.

What would be a good way to encourage people to post more? This thread is to get us all practicing and have fun, at least that was the intention. Would something like monthly/weekly drawing prompts (like the SA doodles thread)help? Bribes? Challenges? Maybe pick a specific medium for everyone to try for a month? Pick an image or clip to use as inspiration?

Please doodle thread regulars, you're my only hope.

Shoot, didn't mean to bulb that.

The biggest problem I personally encounter when posting in here is that I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be posting sketches specifically, or unfinished artwork. I rarely have either of those things lying around, and if I do it's for something really, really lame. I guess making clearer guidelines would have me in here more frequently, because I'd know exactly what was expected of me and I wouldn't start stressing about whose expectations I wasn't meeting.

That said, a regular drawing prompt would probably also be a great idea! Interactive threads are always more fun than just posting and running.

Been trying to actually "practice" drawing again, instead of just drawing someone's character or whatever else. I've never been very good at figure drawing so I've started there. It's fun but difficult trying to understand which lines are necessary to communicate an idea (and also how to place them correctly to begin with ahahaha). Also: Bonus doodle of my boy I made while on a skype call with him.

Hello everyone!

After a few suggestions, I've created a new thread over in the "How I choose to spend my time" section called The ballp.it fridge (https://ballp.it/index.php?topic=2637.0).  This thread is much more open to what can be posted, and hopefully will encourage more people to contribute. Please post in the new thread, if you could.

Or you can stay here, that's fine too :3

Just a page of the many throwaway pieces of paper I fill with doodles every day at work.
