I fell for the 'imagination only and reference only' meme and I want to recover by learning how to copy accurate pictures. Are there any good methods that i can practice extensively? I want to be good at all aspects of art. Copying, imagination, etc.

Not sure how to approach it at all since I've only searched for anatomy tutorials or photos to study. Are there good and easy (obviously not eady but doable) methods that i can ease into as a beginner?

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice. We should not have to make new threads or post in the Drawthread with our fundamental exercises.

Previous Thread >>3857613

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, or you literally are never going to make it

>screenshot the image and post that instead
>change camera capture settings to something smaller
>send to computer and resize in MSPaint

READ THE STICKY if you need guidance when you haven't even started


TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

REMEMBER, if you've just started out you work will not be good, it doesn't need to be, just get in to the swing of actually drawing, and learning how to study. Most of all, enjoy it.

The question of "what to draw"

No.3862548 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I have been contemplating about poses and themes and how they're achieved/illustrated. I hope for a discussion, and/or critique/correction to what I say, and that it's after reading the whole thread(in order to avoid confusion).
I have been trying to understand what the majority of poses in illustrations that are on the internet mean, what the thought process behind them would be. I'm not a natural artist, so it's unfathomable to me by instinct. I don't have any idea of what pose to draw the character in, what theme to use. So, let's start by defining a "pose": A pose is a configuration of joints on a human figure, depicted in 3D space. Let's break down that definition and try to understand how to achieve a pose.
>A configuration of joints
Involves understanding how joints move, anatomy, natural human posture, and center of gravity.
>depicted in 3D space
Involves understanding perspective and form.
Now, to take a look at the confusion, I pose a question: Do poses need a "why"?

Alternative Art/Stylization General

Previous thread: >>3848342

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

/asg/ - Anime Study General

No.3859129 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Keep most of your personal works for /alt/ or the other critique threads. Here we should be drawing copies from good references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Hey /ic/ I recently got a really cheap math tutor from venezuela .
i was wondering if anyone knows where I can get ra really cheap art teacher from a foreign country.
I work best with a mentor I can learn from.
I live in the boonies right now, and i don't like the discord groups. I don't have friends that draw either. drawing by myself is making me stagnant
