    You're going very well with your studies here! If you're feeling confident, try looking at doing a study from a photo here or there. It'll mix things up nicely and it's something different. It's also...

    I know how it is to start after a (big) break..relax and you will improve

    Post it up man, don't be shy. ;) Also, don't grip the pencil very hard, actually try to hold it as loose as possible. Don't use your wrist, either use your elbow to move for long lines, or I use my...

    I'm not sure if that's true anymore. I had the opportunity to go to one of the Disney Inspire Days back in 2007, and they seemed pretty open to reels, story sketches, vis dev portfolios, etc, when...

    When submitting a portfolio to Disney animation specifically, they request (or at least, did back in '96 when I was "apprenticing" with them) ONLY a sketchbook full of gesture sketches.

    No...

    Agreed. You could of course make cartoons without studying it things, but it will depend on what you had in mind. If you don't actually want to DRAW, but do little weird cartoon strips for...

    This is my first post on CA after stopping by occasionally over the last several weeks. I am a rookie, probably more so than you. Excellent start, keep it up and you should improve. Whatever time you...

    Cartooning is reality simplified and exaggerated. Unless you're going to be drawing Shapeless Amoeba's Adventures in Abstractland, your cartoons will likely wear clothes, sit in chairs, ride...

    Bargue plates or anything involving slow, exact rendering don't seem all that necessary for animation and cartooning. But drawing from life is still going to be incredibly useful - especially going...

    There is a fair bit of his stuff around on the internet, notably a series of articles for Animation World Network. With some googling you can probably get yourself an introduction to his ideas and...

    We actual do still lifes in animation school but that's for background painting class. We also have life drawing classes every day cause it's so important. I only did it for one year. First year they...

    Even if you want to draw like the cartoon network kind of cartoons, it'll be really handy to know the basic rules.
    People will often notice that some things are off if you don't know what you are...

    As others have pointed out, your attitude towards learning the basics is great!

    Here's my advice. A lot of the studies you have been doing are straight from the books. That's great and those are...

    Like Dose said, decide for yourself what you need in order to achieve what you're after. Look into how your favorite cartoonists trained. Watch "Crumb". Look at Disney "making of" books. Watch vids...

    Cartooning, caricature and animation are typically stylized and exaggerated reality. So yeah, you need to understand reality and how to interpret it. Drawing "well" is the key to that understanding....

    Yes, you can! In fact, you can tell everybody here to take a flying leap if you want.

    I used to *hate* perspective- but at a certain point I realized I wasn't going to make the art I wanted to...

    When I was taught how to draw, I was told to work on mark making before anything else. It makes sense because marks are like the alphabet of drawings. (much like knowing which programming language...

    Hey, alfredbaudisch!

    I actually didn't have much trouble transitioning to tablet. Before I worked almost exclusively with inks - crowquills, microns, technical pens etc. - so I guess some of that...

    I've always wanted to learn how to draw. I'm a beginner, I'm an amateur, I'm trying to teach myself. I read every single "how to draw for beginners" book out there. I tried the great...

    And you should too, with your own art.


    Most of the times I draw stick figures.
    Fuck yeah.
