working on character sheets today. excitinggg
boop. floating around tumblr and also art magazines are good places to look for rad artists.
it’s really tricky because everyone is inspired by different things! look inside yourself and think about what you want to convey, what stories you want to tell, ect. I always find looking at other artists’ work really inspires me. it helps to sit down once in a while to clear your head— go for a walk, meditate, whatever. find something that just lights you on fire! (not literally, please) i hope this is somewhat useful.
haha it’s fine, I have a tendency to sort of forget about projects. I wanted to work on that today sometime, I’ll probably post it tonight. I’ve been real busy repainting my room and also trying to get my secret webcomic up and running.*✲ﾟ*｡✧٩(･ิᴗ･ิ๑)۶*✲ﾟ*｡✧
oh man, yeah okay. honestly i did a lot of tracing from books like ‘how to draw pokemon’ and i copied tons of anime and manga styles. the hardest thing was trying to find my own style because i had no sense of shape or form or color because all i did was replicate. it took SO LONG to break out of anime! i would honestly say start with drawing from life— plants, bodies, faces, places, experiment with different mediums, and when you have some basic skills down start looking at artists you like and try out different styles. nothing will ever look exactly the same as someone else’s, and from there you can start developing your own taste and style.
draw every day! everything and anything you see, think, feel. take constructive criticisms. look at tutorials. take compliments. these are just things that work for me i dunno i hope it’s good advice.
