IndigoGeminiWolf's Artistic Journey
This is a good guide, because I eventually want to draw a mandala.

It uses Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

I want to eventually draw magic between anthros and humans.

But one step at a time.

I'm using a Cintiq Pro 16 drawing tablet, which acts like a 2nd monitor, at 4K resolution.

I'm drawing pretty much every reference in Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life.

I'm using it on my main screen through Kindle for the PC. The book only costs like $4 on kindle (though I did buy the book first).

My tablet fits in front of the screen without blocking it, because it is raised up.

Here's some figures I copied from one page. Note that Kindle uses location rather than page number, due to varying font sizes and such.

And this is me just messing around with just some of the pencil, paint, and marker an glow and other types of brushes in Sketchbook Pro:

There is an anthro somewhere who needs me and I need them.

RE: IndigoGeminiWolf's Artistic Journey
These are all the anatomy sketches of the human form I have done from the Bridgman book since October 19, 2017 when I started.
That makes it about a week. Still trying to spend about 6 hours a day doing something drawing or study related.

I think my lines are getting a bit cleaner and proportion is getting a little better. Haven't gotten to internal anatomy like muscles or bones yet.
Just unfinished human forms. The tablet is like drawing on glass.

RE: IndigoGeminiWolf's Artistic Journey
My first real digital painting that I put some effort into, following a YouTube tutorial for the most part.

I'm trying to learn environment as well as character design.

Here is my 2nd digital painting. It took me 5-6 hours over 2 days.

I followed this tutorial:

Now it takes me 10-15 mins to draw each figure, plus my proportion is better.

Thanks for sharing your progress Gem! It's so interesting!
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.

RE: IndigoGeminiWolf's Artistic Journey
Figure drawing is much harder than it seems before you first try, don't you think? Ultimately you will be able to envision all the musculature and skeleton, which is neat. I don't think people appreciate the difficulty of being a good figure drawer until they try to learn. I tried to learn, and produced so many abominations, which were ridiculed on the website I was posting to. I have a bad habit of skipping the fundamentals in my impatience for the finished product though, and it doesn't help that I was thinking about making profits by prostituting my art to fulfill deviant sexual fetishes. Alas, I never produced anything worth selling, in the end.

One time I did do a mean portrait of Hitler though. No one ridiculed that.

RE: IndigoGeminiWolf's Artistic Journey
Yeah, I have an online course I can take any time that teaches how to draw the human figure from the mind like it's an invention.

It was definitely hard at first. But I still get my horizontal or vertical scales off; mostly horizontal, either too skinny or too fat.

After this book is finished, probably will take that course again (I took part of it but didn't get past bones).

Some days I'm lazy, and others I'm so eager to get started. But I try not to let the eagerness get too much. I just sit and calm myself if I begin to feel antsy.

I am drawing anthros every so often because they have human bodies, except the hand paws, feet paws, tail, and head, and fur. But I believe the
underlying musculature is approx the same. Bones would possibly be a bit different.
