My name is Zach, I'm okay with nicknames related to my name/username though. I'm agender, they/them preferred, he/him is okay though. I mostly reblog pokemon and stuff from other video games, as well as animals (mostly rabbits), art/tutorials/inspiration from other people as well as some of my own art from my art blog. Furry art too, so keep that in mind. Nothing NSFW here (though possibly suggestive? It's pretty rare if I do). I tend to keep tags light, so if you feel like I need to tag anything, please ask!

How does one simply draw better than just stick figures.

I know it’s overdone, but it’s true that it’s just practice. People say that all the time though, and don’t always say what to practice though. Two important things to get out of the way first though: age is not a factor, and neither is taking classes. I started early and took classes, and yet there are people just as old as me who started later and are self taught, and I think before giving the “actual advice” this is important for everyone to know, and this applies to lots of talents, that you can start at any time, and learn in any way. The most important advice I’ve been given is not practice or even what to practice but HOW to practice. I really cannot sum it up because even if I wrote an entire essay I’d just be scratching the surface, but I’ll try to think of the most important things I’ve learned:

  • Reference as much as possible, anything and everything, even if that means starting with simple stuff like pens and cups, up until you reach things like anatomy.
  • Use basic shapes anywhere you can. This goes with the advice above very well, such as using a cylinder for the pen. Even if you need to draw only 3D shapes and no real objects, it’s still a good thing to start with.
  • Familiarize yourself with the elements and principles of art (just search that exact phrase). These work like “rules”, which is odd for something like art, but they don’t act as rules entirely, they just encompass everything within an art piece (Even an artist who don’t conform to these “rules” will still inevitably create art that has these things within it). Focus on one at a time, organize art practice around only one element first, and then work on ways to implement all of them.
  • Do not focus on creating a “style” at first. The worst advice people give, even some professionals will say: “focus on your style first”. This is the worst because a person’s style comes naturally through practice, and not through putting focus into creating it. It sounds boring, but honestly the first things you do with art will be restricted to the basics. The more you get better, the more you free yourself up to try new things, and to apply what you already know from past experience onto these new things.
  • Being bad is not bad. Keep everything you draw. This is important because if you hold onto it, you’ll be able to look back onto it and see exactly what things you’ve gotten better at.
  • Do not limit yourself to a few things thing. Once you’re good at something, move onto something else you know you’re not good at. This doesn’t mean stop drawing what you’re good at, just to try to improve at least one other thing alongside drawing what you know.

I swear I could come up with at least 20 more bullet points, but that’s the best I can come up with for now. I’m sure there are much more comprehensive explanations from other sources, so go ahead and look into more advice from others if you want to do more. I am in no way the best source or the only source of information, so basically just know that people will give you a whole lot more information, some of it may even be conflicting, but you can find what works best for you eventually. I know this is kind of a lot, but like I said, this is still just scratching the surface. Don’t let hearing that intimidate you though, if you want to get better, you can do it.

Thanks for asking, I’m sure a few other people could use this info too, even though I still consider myself under qualified to be giving advice like this..

TL;DR: read the first sentence or two on the bullet points basically.
