Proportions-sketch tutorial by RammsteirNails Proportions-sketch tutorial by RammsteirNails
This is tutorial for :iconanime-academy: second grade, but anyone can learn from it of they find it usefull :XD:

Sorry for grammar and spelling mistakes, I noticed few myself but I'm too tired to fix them -___- I'm way too late with this anyway. So if something is really trobulesome to read I'll try to fix it some other time xD


Now, after taking a good and long look at every student gallery, I came to conclusion that, even through some are better at proportion and some not, everyone need to practice drawing proportions and anatomy :XD: So I was thinking of making two different assignments of this lesson and give them to each group of students.

I will update this comment once I consult with second teacher *JinkiMania and decide what should I give you as assignment, be patient please~ ^^;

So at the beginning your saying drawing free hand with no guild lines under neath is wrong
RammsteirNails Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013  Student General Artist
No, not at all, guidelines are awesome and super important, but it depends how you use them. In fact this whole drawing is done free hand using guide lines everywhere. If not using guidelines how the hell would you set up your drawing...
I made this like, 3 year ago, many of my opinion on this subject changed, but I can't see where I said that xD
Can you tell me which part specifically gave you that message? So I can help clear out misunderstanding.

Sorry if my reply is late again, I'm no longer using this account but I still log in occasionally to respond to messages and clear inbox xD

I guess its the first paragraph, This method of drawing is wrong and you make no progress or little progress over a long period of time,  Well that's how I read it, So in a way drawing free hand is hard and slow and makes to many mistakes in my opinion.

It's okay, you don't have to change anything^^

Mistakes are good. It's the only way to learn :lol:
I was referring there mostly on those who follow those mechanical step by step instructions blindly without bothering to understand what is it that they are drawing and that's why there barely any improvement occur. Because they are not learning physical world that surrounds them but they are studying someone else's vision of it :)

Alrighty then ^^
