I'm sure you've all noticed it too.
-My anatomy sucks.
-I'm not good with posing. (Have you noticed all the straight standing people I draw ugh U_U; )
-I have never tried to highlight/shade drawings ever in fear of not being able to do it right.
-I am unable to draw realistic looking creases in clothing.
-I lack detail in hair. (I never draw strands or anything.)
I think that without good anatomy, realistic looking clothing and highlights/shading on my drawings, I am still drawing like a kindergartener. I mean, yes, I've improved with anatomy slightly, but I am still pretty much drawing the same things I used to before I became obsessed with anime. Without the traits mentioned above my art could never be as pretty as I would ever like it to be. I know heaps of great artists who've mastered the above techniques and have their art looking very shiny and pretty and I'm starting to feel I'll never be able to draw like that. I'm still stuck with MS Paint and using the fill-in tool to colour. No shading or shiny parts or anything pretty like that. I've tried looking at tutorials but they all have super near linearts with great anatomy and vast detail. Unless someone can point to me an easy-to-follow-for-beginners tutorial or show me how they make their art, I'm stuck.
Thanks for reading.
