Yeah i really struggle with foreshortening, I've watched a bunch of videos on it, read books on perspective and so on. I just don't know how to improve on it.
I know things distort and get bigger the closer they are but I can't emulate that all too well.
If you know any good guides, I'd really love to know. It would help my art a lot.>>5327506
I don't wanna be rude, but I tried my absolute best to learn anatomy, i learnt all the muscles, bones and fats from the book anatomy for sculptors, what exactly am I doing wrong? I used to define all the muscles I could but people told me it looked uncanny and freaky with anime heads so I toned it down.
Is it my proportions that are wrong? If so I can work on making things bigger or smaller, or am I not putting enough definition into muscles, bones and the like?
I really want to know.
Also i do try to emulate artists I like, pic related are some notes and studies i made on an artist that i admire, his name is kentaro yabuki.
I try tracing his art and make notes on how he does things. I was told that my style sucked so i just tried to emulate a good artist. at some point.
The third and forth drawings i made trying to emulate his style with the notes i made, and yes i know i suck at foreshortening, I really want to improve at that, and the last is just me trying to render like him and making notes on the things he did.
I hope that this is how you study an artist and that I'm not wasting my time, sorry if the writing is hard to read, there's a slight lag when writing on my tablet so it's kinda hard to read, i even struggle sometimes
