Nor I was good when I was starting up. Actually what were my first animations was so embarrassing that I am glad they are gone 8D *crappy drawn blinking leopard with sparkle hearts appearing LOLWUT* But after 6-7 years of constantly drawing and trying to get better, doing it over and over again I can finally do it properly. I still see mistakes though so it's still constant road toward improvement for me ;0; The most important part is to never give up!
Well, I'm 24 and been drawing and painting all my life, and I still suck a it. >_> I can't even remember my first animation, as I started doing flipbook ones as a small child. Not saying I'm giving up, I'm just tired of watching others improve while I'm getting nowhere.
Thanks so much for the link! And thank you even more for wanting to help. And for your time. I tried the 30 minute class setting. It's pretty much a big chunk of how I normally practice, except the time settings are better and the models are way, way better. Especially since they're actual photos of real people. Been stuck on a mix of posemaniacs, google images and staring creepily at people on the bus for years. >_> I do wish i could take a real life class though. A teacher who can smash all my bad habits out of me. With a bag full of bricks. That's how many bad habits I've developed over the years. Thanks again, a thousand times. I really do appreciate it.
Yeah make sure that you draw nude models cos only then you will improve with anatomy. Start with short 5 minutes settings to learn to capture the ''action line''. Overall pose. After couple of 5 minutes warm up you can move onto 30 minutes settings. Draw sometimes with charcoal it will help you focus on poses and shape more than a detail. Switch to pencil later on. Remember to draw what you actually see over how you would like them to look in your style. It's important to capture things the way they are just so later on, you can apply them as you wish in your personal drawings. and no problem I was happy to help! c:
