Request A Tutorial

Request a tutorial that you'd be interested in. Posting tutorials you found useful is also fine, but perhaps a Raider will be able to make one (or has already made one) and will be willing to share some knowledge.

Hey lego, i seen that you use the scribble method which i use now as of a day ago and find that its alot more fun. My problem is that it makes the figure drawing easier but i have trouble building around it any tips.

The only thing I can share is that you should draw from reference as much as possible, and do it more than just 1 or 2 times... Copy a lot of drawings even if you don't feel like it to a huge amount - For example 1,000. But you can always do 100 if you want or something less.

Do you have art buddies who draw with you and are at your same level?

I would love to know how to clean lineart up after inking a sketch. Or is it seriously just going over the whole thing at 1000% zoom with an eraser and brush to fix the mistakes. cos that sounds painful......

@bossx5 you might find it helpful to switch between fast scribbling and slow precise lines. the scribbles help to lay down a dynamic base, but then you need to decided what lines you actually want to be part of your drawing and which lines are wrong. When working digitally you can use as many layers as you need to clean up or add details. here's one of my recent works as an example.

thanks, it's still one of my best. took about 90 minutes if I recall correctly. it was a request on my request thread. Peoples's step by step gifs are super helpful to me because it skips all the chatter and just says "this is how I did it"

What's a good tutorial/Book for someone who is a level 0 beginner. like no drawing experience, nothing. something to start someone from zero to something he'd be somewhat proud about what he drew?

I don't have a specific book/tutorial that you can find, but I do have a place to start.

So, I gave up on art a while ago. Well, 'gave up' is a bit harsh. I sacrificed trying to get better at art in order to concentrate fully on prose. But when I was working at art, I always found drawing from life to be a rewarding way to just get the feeling of putting ink to paper into my head. Just work with a photo or what you can see in front of you. A lot of art is just training your hand to move the way you want it to. And professionals use references all the time, so don't feel like it's a crutch. There's a reason you see groups of art students sketching landscapes on a college campus. It's an important step.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

Yeah learning from life is a great start. You can google image "male face in profile" etc for specific things to copy. Pinterest and DeviantArt also have lots of reference and tutorials for how to draw stuff which is sometimes helpful.
