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.

Well… I recently decided to learn how to draw digitally; and I'm using GIMP as I cannot afford PS nor a drawing tablet; it's been quite difficult figuring out which paths (in GIMP terminology) I must draw and in which order. Any advice?


>Any advice?
pirate photoshop


I did, but my pc a shit.



In case somebody need this, here´s a shit ton of how to draw books and art books I found in an old 4chan thread.

drew a moon themed wrestler, like she comes from a cult that worships the moon. not the most exciting design but i had the thought in my head for so long i had to get it out on paper.

also this finisher isn't really realistic since the only guy to really make an overhead uppercut as a signature move (cesaro) couldn't really throw a guy that high, and even then he had a running start.


going for the tumblr audience huh?


no, why would i?


that character design is pretty blatantly meant to appeal to feminists and lesbians


i can see why you would think that. just wanted something that wasn't too close to the standard trope of a foid wrestler


Looks like you have a lot of experience.

I like astro boy, he's cute and not too hard to draw, I've been trying to get faces down, I think this is my best yet, I draw a circle and then sketched out the cheek and jaw area until I thought it looked right, it's a lot better than the usual potato faces I end up with

I'm currently working on this portrait of 2pac.
Next Sunday will be 2pac's death anniversary and I want to honor him in this way. Like him I've experienced many of his hardships and still struggle but he has motivated me and now I have hope and faith that I can be happy.

Love to you all, wizards. Life goes on.

In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I hope I die for a principle
or a belief that I had lived 4
I will die before my time
Because I feel the shadow's depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
Before I reached my death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from my eyes
I loved all who were positive
In the event of my Demise!

RIP 2pac.


Depends on what you want. If you don't know what you want, here's what worked for me: First, Brent Eviston's course on Skillshare (regular one, not figure drawing); just get a free trial and download the whole thing. Then, Bert Dodson's Keys to Drawing.


Really enjoyed this!

i lost my graphics tablet pen charger so out of curiosity and a moment of impulsivity i broke the pen apart to see the inside. wasnt worth it, that was like throwing $20 away, disappointed but i felt like i had to do it at the time


Sucks wiz. It's good to be curious though. Did you get a new one? Hopefully you're still able to draw in one way or another.

Decided to get back into drawing. I'll post every 1 to 3 days so you can see my progress.


I used to make very fast gesture drawings. When I get rusty it takes me 2 or 3 days to get back into gesture drawing. Kinda hard to draw them right when they're holding still. The drawing with the x by it is one that I got into it right mindset, just saw and then instantly drew.

When gesture drawing like that it's good to draw from imagined angles and imagined poses, e.g. draw something as you see it and then draw it as your mind creates from another angle or a different pose. I was once able to do this easily, I'll get back there in 2 or 3 days.


I don’t like drawing. It makes me realize how pathetic I am

Trying to get decent at drawing since I am a neet with nothing better to do.
I've been reading art books and copying them.


That's a very good book, grats wiz. Very good for rhythms. What's that artist's name again? Starts with R I think.

Used to love drawing for hours at the library with books like that. I drew heads for hours one day with Hogart's head book and drew parts of everybody that walked by that I quickly glanced at. After I was done the bus ride home I kept seeing people's skulls when I saw their faces. I asked a guy if I could draw him and I did pretty good, got the skull parts around his eyes really good.

Part of why I'm so rusty is that I am never around many people anymore. Gonna try getting really good at remembering people I see while on walks so I can draw them when I get home. I miss riding the bus to downtown and going to the library and hiking.


It's George Bridgman Complete Guide to drawing life.

I imagine drawing in life can be useful at improving your skill but I am too recluse to do that. I'm staying at home.
Do you still draw now?

Drawing birds is real easy because they're confident enough for you to get close enough to get a good look because they can just fly away. Drawing from life is way better than from 2d pictures because drawing (realistic) is about creating 2d illusions of 3d world.

It looks really good, I like your style and expression. If I could give one point of critique, I feel like your faces are a bit too large for the heads they're on. I think it'll go a long way if you made the eyes a little bit smaller so that they're proportinal to the forehead.

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.

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.

¿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

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.
