TL; DR- PM is right, quit talking and start walking.


I didn't "talk the talk" and not walk the walk. I said I'd draw up my roster, and guess what; my roster hasn't be completed because I couldn't draw what I wanted to. I tried to draw Xin on a whole page and it was terrible. So I've been taking the time to draw some more in an attempt to find out what I'm missing (beyond proportions). I need to be able to draw up Xin's roster in a neat fashion, or else I feel like I've failed myself. As if I could've taken just a little bit more time in order to draw him correctly, instead of having him look like a clown on the thread that's supposed to be representing him accurately. Instead of messing up the one thing that everyone has to go to in order to draw him correctly.

If I can't draw Xin correctly, then who the hell will?

I also have my own life (playing with my much younger siblings, working out, going to work), so my bad if you thought I said I was ready to brawl. I really haven't given myself much time to draw because I've been so stagnant. So yeah, my roster isn't finished yet. Don't ever accuse me of not living up to my word. I take my promises seriously.




Anyway, the shapes thing works out. I didn't have to look up anything beyond the videos I've already seen.

Here's my first attempt. It took 3 minutes.

Don't expect anymore sketches from me, I really need to start posting finished art projects, complete with color, so I can have the heart to call this an art thread.



P.S. I know there's not a minimum requirement for brawling, but above all, I need to be proud of myself and the content I'm posting. If a little more time helps me find what I'm missing, then so be it.

shit nigga, feeling salty much?

I wasn't accusing you of anything, you crybaby.

Here's the thing. Art takes literally YEARS to improve on. Don't expect adding a cock bulge= instantly better. In fact, you should actually go back to bare basics. I'm talking 2 and 3 dimensional shapes and still life compositions, because i hate to be putting it so bluntly but you have literally NO grasp of human anatomy. even though that is what literally everyone else was saying anyway. just not so direct. (art resource thread coming soon)

Of course, this depends on what you want to do. Do you purely want to improve just for SPB? or is there a bigger motive (i.e. a burning passion for breaking thru in the art world or some shit like that). if your answer is the former; really tho?

you're on SPB, this isn't a big dick contest, we're not here to one up one another on a personal or artistic level, we're here to collectively create somewhat interesting stories and create scenarios where characters we make up beat eachother up . you're supposed to just have fun and go with the flow regardless of your art skill. When i started on SPB when it was founded like a billion years ago i couldn't draw for shit. Now, 9 years down the line, i still have a lot to learn, but i have improved, but not because i saw some youtube video and then thought i'd improve overnight or in the span of like one sketchbook page. I'm talking late nights with a lot of coffee and self loathing, regression, sweat and tears, irregular shifts, family/work/school drama and every so often a glimpse of pride. You're not the only one in the trap son. everyone is.

i understand insecurity and blah blah crippling depression blah blah getting your pump on all that jizz jazz. art is supposed to help you escape from that mindset not enforce it. It's an admirable effort that you want to present something artistically competent. But in regards of this forum specifically it really isn't necessary. Don't improve just for SPB, improve because you want to improve regardless of what reason. Art is supposed to be fun. and not to be rude, but you make it sound like it's more of a chore than a fun passtime or a hardcore obsession. DO it because you WANT to do it. much like masturbation really.

swallow that pride homie, it aint worth it for just this.

this anatomy is a bit more advanced)


idk why this wont show

you want your gestures/poses to look more like this, no real detail- just shapes.


draw enough of this stuff and you'll be able to pull off a lot of poses convincingly. drawing all sorts of poses doing different things and from different angles will help you get an understanding of how to 'move' limbs around.

PM is right in that regard, i even agree with his hardline approach. You wanna brawl, quit saying it and start doing it, i mean, he's right about Nitro, and he's one of the most active contributors on this hellscape.



It's time for me to go cry in my corner guise. -Sobs in his corner because skill isn't 1337 enough-

No but they're right Xin. Don't freak out(Though it doesn't seem like you did? I dunno maybe I'm missing something) when people jump down your throat because you should just tell yourself they're just trying to help you. I can't say what's already been said multiple times because it'll just be redundant at the point, but they're right. All I can do is back their words, give you a virtual pat on the back, a "You can do it!" and send you on your way.

"Go for it Xin! Work for that skill and impress these motherfuckers!"

Also, 2 weeks? Shit nigga you be on some a dat crystal shit for a few curse words.

Since I guess this wasn't stated clearly enough, STOP TRYING TO DRAW MUSCLES ON YOUR CHARACTERS WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN DRAW THE MOST BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE HUMAN BODY WITH ANY COMPETENCE. That doesn't just go for Xin. If you're still struggling with the basics, don't jump to advanced techniques, simple enough? When you guys try to skip straight to drawing defined, large muscles, without hardly even being capable of drawing a normal person that looks decent, it just results in bizarre, mutated-looking characters.

Xin, enough with trying to draw the pectoral muscles, it just makes them look like they have gigantic manboobs. Again, this doesn't just go for Xin

Lmao.




Thanks to everyone who told me to switch it up.

Many thanks to the Captain of the Reindeer.

The fundamentals make drawing much more exciting! I actually stay up past my bedtime drawing, instead of feeling chained to redrawing a 3/4 view over and over.

When I thought of trying to draw emotion, this was the first image that came to mind.


Yeah it's close to done, and I want to color it and finish/play with the scenery. But I do want to move on for now so I can get to my roster in a timely fashion.

These are all first attempts, and I do have more but my other sketches are either practice for perspective or pose drawings with beanies/ugly faces.

Next time you hear from me, hopefully I'll have made Xin the way I want to, or I'll have sucked it up and thought that it's time to jump off the cliff, and start brawling.

Ok, ok, ok. I fucking blow. I need to draw and give progress through drawing shittily. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NAO

No more depression-> Stop blaming others

Moving on.

I really gotta amp up my quantity by 100 fold. There are times when I dream about drawing. So, the obvious next step is to draw as shit-ton and to quit bitching, and quit making excuses, and to quit bitching.

Here are a few things I've drawn:
All of them, not as interesting as they could be, but that's what I'm here for (:







I WILL BE TRYING TO MIXX IT UPP FROM NOWW ON
