Just finished this drawing of one of my characters. Took too long to finish this... The perspective of the gun is off, but I couldn't fix it without making it look worse.

Did a couple of sketches today, most of the poses in upper part of the pic are from references.

Also I downloaded "drawing on the right side of the brain". Going to try and read the whole thing in under a week and then try to draw something less "cartoony". Need to improve quickly, never was I so determined to learn stuff.

WELL... If it did something for me it made me angry at myself. I hate drawing from references, end result always looks terrible for some reason even though it must be easier, I don't get it. But I guess I should ignore what is displeasing for me and just DO IT!
My self-portrait looks so damn depressing and for some reason I can't stop laughing at it.
And I thought I was good at drawing hands.

Reeeeally like your poses, think you could push the gestures more, though. About the reference thing, i know how you feel, it's hard to make the drawing look exactly like it, but as long as you are learning something new, realism or looking the same is not as important. What did you use as reference for the self portrait? I don't recommend photos, but a mirror or webcam. I want to see more of your stuff!!

Gestures is something I really want to get right, line of action is still a concept that is hard for me to grasp. The whole "Use one line to describe the movement" thing. I sometimes find myself even more confused when I start with line of action than without it.
For self-portrait I used a mirror of course, I don't even have a good phone or a camera to take a photo with.
I will continue to improve as long as I can, even though knowing myself I might suddenly stop drawing at some point for like a month, but I will make sure that won't happen very soon.

tl;dr thank you very much for the support I promise I'll get gud.

Today I did just a little bit of practice because weekends are my relaxation days. I'm starting to understand this R-Mode the book is talking about.

All I could think of when I saw your drawings is: "so charismatic!". I can really feel it in your characters, and even in your poses! That's always pleasant to the eye ^^
(I... also may or may not want to totally know a bit more about that first character, he looks cool af).

Making charismatic and characters that look "alive" is something I really wanted to achieve and I will try to improve it even more. Thank you. If you're speaking of Aes, then she's a female character of species I still don't know how to name. Naming was always the hardest thing for me. She's basically a mercenary and specialises in hunting and scouting. Not much of a character development yet. Maybe I should learn a thing or two about writing, that would be useful.

I listened to some Undertale osts and decided to draw a sketch. The main hero is supposed to be a kid as far as I know, but he doesn't really look like one here, now I know what I should practice on tomorrow/today.

Today I've read some more of this book, I was skeptic about it at first but now I think I believe in what they are saying. Some of these exercises they made me do made me experience strong headache, I guess that was my L-mode saying "F*ck this I'm out" while slamming a door behind me.

Also this thing in the upper left corner seemed interesting enough to make into it's own character wth some alterations.

I say you have to learn gesture drawing before you actually start applying construction and anatomy. gesture is what gives your characters energy and stops them from looking stiff. i like your 'pure' line drawings...looking at them brings ideas to mind...I believe i have some old drawings that may help you...

Spoiler: show

Basically the goal here was to get the pose right and match the energy from the figure in the reference....sometimes you can learn alot just by going back to the basics. this is alot of help when you trying to design a character in specific poses

Will do. I'll put it into my to-do list tomorrow. Thanks for the tip, I kinda forgot about gestures with this book.

Well, I suck at differenciating sexes on animal-like creatures, yikes. Naming is a pain, nothing seems to fully work out ever. And yeah, if you like drawing characters and concepts, it's a good idea to have a backstory. Especially because while you think at it you can get some really good inspiration and be able to incorporate more things into the design (like scars from accidents or different clothing depending on the part of the timeline you're drawing the character on).

By the way, the "when people ask you to draw something for them" is hilarious...ly true, and the studies look really useful. I like the pure contour drawing and the character you drew from it, too.

Nothing good happened today, feeling bad and tired, but I'm trying to force myself to draw anyway.

At this point I think I just can't simplify things, these gestures look so bad I don't think I need to upload them. Everytime I'm trying to take things seriously they become extremely hard and bad for me, it's like everything goes against me, did I hit an art block? I'm so tired of these situations but I won't give up, I said that I will become an artist and I must keep my promise to myself. I will force myself to draw no matter what, maybe I won't even sleep this night. Maybe a good forced marathon will teach my brain a thing or two.

Dedication is a great thing to have, but don't let it get in the way of a good night's sleep. I know I can't talk for everyone, but I know what happens the majority of the time when people decide not to sleep to do something all night: either they end up too tired to do anything but refusing to sleep anyway; or do great things, but the consequences of not sleeping well make them unable to do anything right for a couple of days.

This is just my advice, of course... but don't be so harsh on yourself, we all have days in which we just can't do shit. Seriously, I think it's pretty normal, nothing to worry about. Take it slow, and go to sleep. Tomorrow you could just wake up feeling much better, or even if you didn't, at least you would be rested enough and have the entire day to find a good solution.

Oh, and for the art block: Maybe try something different? Something less exact, less difficult. Just something you enjoy and can do without much thinking. It may not be the practice you need that day, but it is practice at least, and it could make the block go away (it does sometimes for me, hope it helps you!).

Maybe you are right. Maybe I went a little tiny bit too far because I got emotional here. Emotional is not even the correct word for what I felt a few minutes ago, some things were punched, but nothing got broken thankfully. I will try to draw something else and not focus on gestures for now, gesture is in every drawing so I will get more experienced in it no matter what I draw, right? Thanks again. Oh, and I will show what I scratched on my tablet too since I'm kinda done with gestures for now.
Spoiler: show
I mean it wasn't that bad from beginning, but I wasn't satisfied anyway, maybe I set my standarts too high. Poses became more difficult and I started losing my temper quickly.

And then shit got real. Image
In the end I couldn't even control my pencil and my gestures turned into modern art.

So I decided to do a little break from drawing, after one day I already started to feel bad so I did a sketch today just to not get too lazy.

Also at one point my tablet started to act weirdly, something happened with the driver, but while this bug lasted I found out a trick that I can't do while my tablet works fine, it looked pretty neat.

Okay. These gesture drawings do get better, but at this point I think I need to study anatomy more. Time to get these skeletons and anatomy books out of my closet!

EDIT: I am so stupid that I forgot I could just mirror the picture now everything is okay.
Even one of my friends who has an eye for most anatomical mistakes didn't see anything wrong with that one. I'm extremely surprised.

yes i agree your gestures in this one is much better and i can actually picture whats going on. starting off with anatomy can be a bit overwhelming...i find it easier to break it up into 3 parts. The Head, Upper Body (chest, shoulders, arms, back, abs & core), and the lower body(legs,feet,thighs,buttocks,). I practice on each part on different days of the week....idk....i tend to run out of energy(motivation) quickly so its easy to do it this way. But anyways keep it up i hope to see more from you soon

Just a little sketch. Nothing special. Did a little break from drawing on holidays, now getting back to drawing, I found out that I downloaded a big collection of VILPPU's videos a long time ago and somehow forgot about them, I will watch a couple of these videos tomorrow.
