Dunno if i'm late to the party - but Photobucket.
Anyone else see that they've changed their terms to post images on 3rd party sites to require a massive yearly payment?

Literally all of my links all over the place, on Patreon, banner adds, etc, are broken now... and it seems a large portion of the internet is dealing with the same thing.

So, sound off. Has this affected you, and it is as insanely annoying as i'm feeling it is?

Without commenting on the SO and that whole situation, just wanted to chime in and say I think your art is very well done. You should feel good about it - you're *not* at the quality/level where you should feel bad showing it to people, haha.
Keep on truckin'. Fuck the haters.

This is my life

>be in Photoshop
>make new layer
>start drawing whatever
>control Z after the first line you draw (undo)
>continue drawing for some time, getting everything right
>realize your previous 'undo' brought you back to the previous layer you were on just before you started, and you've been drawing on the wrong layer this whole time, messing everything up
>repeat indefinitely, never learning from mistake

Ahhh, so photorealism is something i'm confident enough to speak on, and enjoy discussing. I used to do it exclusively, and i'm way better at it than I am at drawing comics :P.

Spoilered for size and one of which is kinda NSFW because of boobs :



Those are my pencil drawings. I used to draw photos, and only photos, until I branched out into comic art - which I find much more difficult (but much more fun).

How :
In terms of creating realistic drawings, I don't use construct lines anymore, - but I *do* recommend them, as Kyo suggested. They are the learner's way of drawing from an image, pure and simple.
But you can also try my method-
When you draw from a reference, you've got to imagine you're drawing shapes - not an image. I draw shapes between body parts. Mentally (or lightly draw it in) connect an elbow to a nose, to a chin, for instance. It makes a triangle. Now do the same to your reference picture. Does the triangle have the same angles and shape? If not, you've got a problem.
For sizes of body parts and such-
Find some sort of constant - an arm size, or a head size, an eye size, etc, that you're comparing everything else to. It'll help you from slowly skewing the drawing. I'm not talking 'a body is 7 heads tall' i'm talking about the size of something in your reference picture. Like, the width of Chris Tucker's mouth in your picture. Measure your reference - if the head is two and half sets of mouths tall, well, there ya go lol. Or, I use the triangle mentioned above as measurement. The distance between an eye and elbow in a picture, for instance, might be a good way to measure other parts. If your image isn't looking right - measure distances. Compare.
But find a constant - a base measurement which everything else is based around and compared to, and stick with that one measurement for the whole drawing - something mid size like a mouth if it's a face picture, or head size if it's a full body.
Keep going back to it.

The problems with realism:
Aside from the how-tos, there's the style question.
Like I say, i've done a *lot* of photorealism. I find it affects my comic drawing, sometimes in negative ways.
If I use a reference for a scene, or a face, etc, I find I often copy it too closely. I *can* duplicate the image, so it's hard *not* to. If I reference a face for one of my character's expressions, the face looks like the original face - not my character's.
When I started my comic, it was hard for me to get around that. It took a long time to learn how to exaggerate specific features and so on, and use references as templates, not photos to re-draw.
Now, when I reference, i'll sketch out the pose, rough emotion, etc, and then get rid of the reference picture haha. It prevents me from copying too much, and it lets the image turn out in my 'style' as opposed to the style of whatever i'm referencing (be it real life or other artwork. As a note, I almost entirely avoid using other comic artwork as reference because I end up just copying it too much)
Exaggeration is another huge issue I have sometimes. I don't do it enough. Cartoon art is more dynamic than real life. A picture of a kick doesn't look like a kick in motion, unless it's got some extra bits to show movement and dynamic motion. Drawing a reference picture too exactly can make it too static.

I also had little knowledge of anatomy coming into comic drawing - because honestly I have never used it. All those books "how to draw a face"? I never used 'em. Like I say, photorealism involves drawing a picture composed of shapes - not a 'person'. I didn't care how lips are drawn when i'm only drawing what's in the picture. Shapes and shades. I don't draw a stickman first and then layer on skin, muscle, etc. I draw what's there - wherever or whatever it is on the surface.
It can be a hindrance. Don't fall into that trap.

Anyways, my advice is this :
Don't stop drawing anime. But don't stop drawing other stuff, either. You really need to blend all of your skills to make a good drawing.
The absolute key, I think, is knowing where to apply each set of skills.
Use your realism skills to know how to properly draw an arm at the right length, and at the same angle as your reference pic - but use your cartooning skills to know when to stretch that arm just the right amount to show a dynamic punch.
Use your anatomy skills to learn how to draw lips. Use your cartooning skills to learn how to make those lips smile waaay bigger than people do in real life when your character is stupidly happy.
Or something like that, anyways.

Hope this helps. Sorry for my lengthy response ^_^ I do love me a good talk about traditional, pencil realistic drawing though :P haha

HeSerpenty:aaand when I finish it.. I TOTALLY plan to retire from webcomic-ing and enjoy a life with 8 hours of sleep, exercise, no page deadline, and regular meals.


There's a life after webcomic-ing? Surely you jest.
