is that a mean girls reference??
i don’t really measure it so it’s difficult to say; an average i think is 4-8 hours per day spent solely on drawing.
how about others, how often do you draw? let’s have a discussion! \o/
i don’t think it’s a bad thing, it’s up to an individual person. some people can’t start laying down the colors without a clean lineart, and some people don’t even need a sketch to begin with.
as for what it affencts, um, probably the time you spend on your drawing and your ability to call the picture finished without having to refine every single element? if you’re asking if it makes your painting less pretty (as in ‘your messy style is so unusual that fewer people might like it’), i don’t think so; like with everything, some may like it, some may not. to each his own ヽ(◉ㅅ◉)ノ
i say don’t worry about it. you’re arting for yourself and if it makes you happy then i don’t see why you should try and be super meticulous when it’s clearly not in your nature. just be yourself~
I’m doing an art giveaway ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ)
I’ll be doing 5 digitally painted, full color portraits of a person/character of the winner’s choice (so it can be your own character or anything really…) The style/quality will be somewhere b/n those first two examples and the two BW ones at the bottom.
HOW TO GET IN ON THIS:
- Reblog this post; likes and multiple reblogs will not increase your odds
- Winners will be chosen at random in two weeks’ time on June 1st
- I will make a post naming the winners and send an ask to work out the subject of the painting
I’ll be reblogging this a few times to make sure people see it. I don’t want like 5…people to reblog it ahahha that’d be embarrassing omfg please don’t let that happen. But! if you want to avoid seeing this post again block the tag #frenegiveaway
i don’t think i’m the right person to ask, i still think i suck at it. but what helps me (or at least i think it does) is drawing with references and generally studying/observing how body/muscles works. analize that shiet. anatomy books are useful too.
and most of all (although i know noone wants to hear it) practice. it’s the only way to go.
