All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper

Feel free to post any drawings of yours in this thread. Illustration, doodle, traditional, digital - anything goes. Discussion on skillbuilding techniques and fair critique of other wizards' work is welcome.

this took me forever, first attempt at ever shading anything


cool buddy

Jeez, the amount of time I've spent on this hobby is ridiculous considering the tiny gains I've made. I feel like if I'd invested the time I spent drawing in another hobby like an instrument I'd at least be competent by now. And I just don't know how to improve.

Anyway if anyone has some requests I would appreciate the motivation to draw. Pic related is my skill level but I can do complete drawings too. I sorely need the practice.


Can you draw a police officer riding a dolphin and a little kid carrying the dolphin overhead while running barefooted on the ocean's surface?

Well that was the worst drawing I've made in quite a while, pretty hard to find references for this sort of thing. Although it made me more aware of how much I rely on reference so thanks for that.

Would you make a drawing of this picture, wiz, including the building and cars in the background. I like the early 1960s aesthetic and it reminds me of photos of my mother when she was young. Thanks.

Here's where the idea for it came from. I wanted to know what you would imagine by a description alone.

Thought it looked nice

Sorry anon I give up. Drawing is impossible, anyone who says they've drawn something is a fucking liar.

It's okay, wiz, thank you for trying.

a study

this is a bit /meta/ but what is it about drawing that makes it such a great hobby for wizards?


It's a low cost and solitary endeavour.

with a certain mindset it's the ultimate timekiller, hours just disappear in a blink of an eye

here's an oekaki-ish drawing i made of a knight in kastenbrust armor. i'm pretty proud of it


good job with shadows/highlights


I know these sorts of studies usually get overlooked but good job, wiz. Keep sharpening those skills.


anyone know where I can find a program or a drawing program where I can click once to draw and click again to stop? That is, instead of having to hold the left click down while I make a line? Such a program would make it vastly easier to draw with a mouse.


Sorry for the platform, honestly I don't really know where to upload


You can upload files either by selecting from the folder on your computer or holding and dropping it on the drop/paste area.


A lot of artist use twitter. At least you can save images there and they only pester you to log in half as often as instagram.


ive seen this artwork before, where else did you post it?

Ever since I stopped jerking off I have been killing time by drawing. A perfect hobby indeed. Bought myself a tablet some time ago, right now following ctrlpaint lessons, trying to get good. I have never drawn anything without lines before, but now I enjoy just cutting the shape out of fat strokes. This method is quite fascinating.

here's something I drew a while back


Very nice edge control on the second one!


Thanks wizard.


¿It is possible to learn how to draw, even when you are grown up? I heard Van Gogh never draw anything before he was 30. After 2 years of practice, he became a very good artist. ¿Is it’s possible to do the same?


van gogh was a failure in basically every way in his own lifetime. probably not the best person you can use as an example in your question

there is no technical reason why you can't learn to draw at any age

A simple hippo from reference.

Any wizards wanna request something anime? I need to start drawing again. I can also draw ponies.


Van Gogh wasn't the only one. Claud Monet, for example, wasn't a failure and he started in his 40's or so. It is never too late to start drawing, but if you are too old, you may never reach the level you could have if you started earlier. The more you do, the better you become after all.
Wizard, just draw. You don't need motivation, just do it damn it. But if you really need a request, draw me Chie Satonaka from Persona 4.

Something GLT
Anyone saying that you just need to draw to get good is bullshiting. I’m literally good at like 2 things in life and that’s guns and making mechanical models. I’ve spent hours and I’m just not getting good, I’ll keep at it but I’ve noticed pretty much no improvements since last month. In fact it looks identical to what I drew when I were a fucking preteen it’s so frustrating. I just want to create but I can hardly draw a circle as illustrated by pic related


>guns and making mechanical models

unirnoically child's play. art is extremely difficult, i would recommend going on /ic/, pilfering their resources and finding something that speaks to you.


I don't know either of these enough to come up with some scene that makes sense, so it would probably just be a portrait unless you suggest otherwise


Start from Drawabox lessons. It is free and easy to digest. Construction, perspective, how to make lines. Those are the basics. Learn the basics - practice - improve. Not just drawing for fun.
Perspective on your picture is weird, literally incomprehensible, the lines are wobbly and curved, hatches and cross hatches are too straight, show no shape, no texture, serve no purpose. If you want to get good, start from the very fundamentals. After you have acquired the understanding how things work, drawing will be fun.


Portrait sounds good. Flex your skills, wiz.
