It feels like learning anime style drawings is significantly harder because I cant access or read the artbooks or tutorials what the hell do i do when I see these tutorials right in front of my eyes but i cant even read them

Get what u can from english resources but dont go too deep, typical western way of learning art is not suitable for anime. Then, keep comparing your work to other anime artists and see what is missing, how they draw, why they draw it like that. Simpler styles are easier to figure out, but more advanced stuff youre gonna have to figure out in what way you can.
Also, there are image translators online.

>> No.5254401

a good way I learned how to color in anime style is by watching speedpaints. for example, shirabii on youtube. he has both streams and speedpaints you can learn a lot from.

Quoted By: >>5254846

how do I go about making drawing something I want to do and consistently do everyday? I'd like to draw everyday, and I ideally spent a lot of time on it.
I actually have the free time atm. but aimlessly browsing the internet, entertainment media and porn are way more stimulating, and way easier. drawing can feel stimulating too, and it often does when I actually do it, but it can't compare to those other activities.
thinking about how consistently drawing now and developing a skill would be better for my future doesn't work. I can intellectually understand it, but it doesn't feel like a real imminent threat/issue. taking care of other responsibilities (like schoolwork) is easier to do, because there'll be consequences right away, if I don't.
I had no success with "just be disciplined" as a long term strategy either. Might work for a few weeks, but mainly just made me dislike drawing.

>> No.5254846

Get used to just randomly scribbling on the page even if you don't have any ideas, the goal is to condition yourself to regard drawing as your "do nothing" time that you are currently spending with internet garbage. And yes this is all about discipline.

I'm not able to record films at my house for various reasons, but one thing I've noticed is fun is to use games, mods, or quirky programs to make animations. Stuff from the old Microsoft 3D Movie Maker, to the Blockbuster mod for Minecraft, I find it fun to use these to make movies. I think I just have a hard time focusing on standard animation (I've tried many times), so using these makes it easier, and also applies limits to make my creativity think more cleverly. Are there any (preferably free) programs that are meant for making animations, and I guess (for lack of a better word) a bit quirky?

right now im experimenting with crosshatching so its sort of confusing knowing what values i have.

Start off with a grey layer, do a sketch layer, then a value layer with white and black, and then paint the peace fully.

>> No.5252239


If it were me, I'd start off separating my studies. Cross-hatching can be used to denote value, but its a separate skill on its own that shows planar information in a certain way.
When I tried to incorporate hatching into my master study of Jean Baptiste Greuze, I'd find myself using too many line to indicate cross contours and it effected the way the values were set up.
Reduce your values to 5: center light, half tones, shadow, core shadow and cast shadow- and you should be able to get most of the most out of the study without too much confusion.
