Learn dynamic sketching first. Draw cylinders,boxes,elipses,circles,spheres ..etcc. Learn 1 point, 2 point and 3 point perspective. You need to be able to rotate these objects in your mind.Learn the basics of light and shadow apply it to those forms as practice. Then once you understand the fundamentals.

Learn from steve huston, Vilppu or any New masters academy teacher. Schoolism also works. There is a Mega link still up for their courses.

>> No.5132295

These books and others like them are simply a set of procedures that the author finds useful for creating human-like figures. Unlike, for example, math where you need to learn from first principles and build up, there is no such requirement for art.

Draw something, fail at it, look to see if there's a method in a book that helps you achieve the results you want, and if so, use it.

Perspective books, however, do contain some principles from math, since we're dealing with geometry. And these principles can be applied to figure drawing, which is why people say "learn the fundamentals". If you can draw a tall cube in perspective, then you can begin to replace it with a human that is in perspective.

But the whole "draw a circle and subdivide it to find the placement of the eyes" is just a trick that can be useful when sketching *a particular style* from imagination. Not all faces will adhere to the rule. Western and Eastern cartoons will have different "rules".

Honestly, just do FWAP then start doing studies. Studies of whatever you want, humans, animals, clothes, etc. FWAP teaches a method, and you have to take that method and run with it. Drawabox honestly won't give you anything FWAP won't. Keys might be really useful to go along with FWAP, because it teaches proper obseration and accurate drawing, which will help you construct better

The traditional cartoon style is a good way to learn construction because most cartoon figures are made of simple shapes.
It's good to be open to older art styles. If you break down whatever you're into (including anime) it's often built on these older forms of drawing/cartooning (for example Anime/tradition is rooted in classic American animation and comics).
Also, a lot of fundamental texts might seem boring and pointless while in the process of learning, only later you absorb the value of them. Art is a job, it takes discipline.

Keep perservering, anon. This is the quickest way to improve. You're on the right track.

Take what you learned and repeat it with other objects. Draw things you like from google images. The point is to repeat that drawing process so much that its a habit. Then whenever you pick up a pencil to draw, you are automatically drawing in that way. Repeat it ad-infinitum and train your neurons to think this way. Move onto his figure drawing manual next, using this method of drawing.
