How do I stop hating my art so fucking much? It's not even that it is objectively good or appealing and I am just angry with myself, It is legit shit. Stiff, unappealing and boring.
Not to mention the almost total absence of draftmanship. What should I do? Should I continue drawing and do nothing more? study from books? Drawing from life instead of just copying references badly as "practice"? This was done using a reference and it still looks ugly af and stiff.

Don't start with serious anatomy, it's a meme. Start with cartoony stuff. It gives you the advantage of having more freedom and flexibility that is very useful for beginners. After you have done cartoons for a while you will be able to just naturally do more interesting poses, body motions and perspectives. After you've done that everything else will become much easier.

This one? It was my attempt to draw a shortstack baphomet. I'm pretty bad at giving things perspective and making them not look flat, I think the fact that I'm using solid black on white for most stuff makes this even a harder job for me since I'm just a beginner. I'll be glad if you have any tips to give about that.

The expression created by the lift on the cheeks is not a sign of age you retard. That said it’s very difficult to stylize attractively outside of realism. The worst way to do it is with simple lines though. I’ve seen it done well a few times by making the line work a different, softer color than the rest of the line work though.

Ran some tests. I think the middle right looks best. I'd say no more than two lines are needed, and they should be soft or part of the shading rather than a hard outline. Cheek lines are much harder, never draw those.

nice work. I'm inclined to agree. top right could perhaps work if there were more expression in the eyebrows.

The biggest thing when creating OC characters and concept art for clients; I always look at the big boys like Mario, Sonic, and Pacman, and the like. The reason they're so popular besides their games, is their look. Mario had 2 of the biggest and most popular primary colors that makes him easily recognizable and loved. Pacman is the same but with yellow and accent of red on his gloves and feet. Megaman and Sonic are mostly blue. You get the idea. However the one thing that drives me nuts and makes me worried is making characters whose color pallets are too similar to existing popular characters; and I would like everyone's input on this.

If I'm making OC (for myself or a client); I'm worried that if be making a character who's colors are too similar from another one. Like, the character in question is completely different than Mario. But what's going to stop people from calling that character a Mario ripoff if it has a color pattern of red and blue? What's going to stop people from calling my character a ripoff of say megaman, sonic, or pacman if it shares their color pallets? It's something I'm worried about because people are really superficial, and it is hard enough to come up with a pallet that I like and isn't similar to existing ones. Am I overthinking this or is this a real dilemma? I don't want a character that I make being called a ripoff of any character in the industry just because of similar colors

what is color theory to you? Learning the triads and complementary colors, etc? Okay I know those but I don't get how to use them to make something look nice. Is it what emotion certain colors convey? Those seem to be different based on where you read it from. I just don't understand color theory or at least researching it doesn't help me pic colors and when I try using colors that theory would tell me its right, it just looks off.

OP, there's more to character design than just colour scheme. Spiderman and Mario have similar colour schemes, but you'd never be able to confuse them because they look completely different. Consider shape and form while you're designing your character. Compare silhouettes, etc.

>draw bad portrait with no understanding of fundamentals
>try to hide the fact that it's bad by calling it "abstract"
This is probably bait anon but this is detrimental to your progress. Even to do abstract art (which you did not) you should have at least a fundamental understanding of regular, non-abstract art, because when you actually know how form, texture and color works, only then can you properly abstract and distort it. Picasso, Bacon, whoever - they all were perfectly capable of doing good, realistic portraits if they so pleased.

I quit video games since yesterday so i can have more time towards art and learning it but it feels so boring. Realizing you're so shitty for so long and trying to get better but the process of getting better is boring as shit.

Maybe it's because i'm either autistic or have the mind of some phone addicted teenager or some shit but reading books and watching video courses is grueling. It hurts so much to know you're also shit at easy excercises as well.
I can't fucking quit art i wanna get better but this process is so demotivating.

How do i make it fun and associate art with a positive feeling so i can love art again?

Do i need to wait for a full week so i can become addicted to art since i quit videogames?

I'm not good at coloring yet but i'll start trying it this month. Thanks for suggestion anon

Yeah i'm opening up to that mindset alot. Art is actually fun to me again.

Just draw anon. Another anon somewhere around here also said that jumping into books and courses without a clear goal in mind on what you want to improve at makes stuff boring for you. Just draw, realise you need to improve on something, get a book/video anything on it, then apply it to your drawing. I'm starting on Peter Han's Dynamic bible since drawing bodies is complex for a beg like me.

Lol that's fine. But seriously, it's day 3 of me quiting videogames and i haven't thought about them until you said it at all. I depended on them because i wanted to improve at art instantly and needed the instant gratification since i couldn't get that from art and associated art with a bad feeling since it wasn't fun for me.
Now art is actually fun thanks to other not only helpful anon's replies, but other threads about how people are improving fast in 3 years and that's inspiring to me. I realized you can have fun at art and still improve fast. Let go of your fear and worries and just draw something fun and ez man.

Now if you excuse me i need to draw dead trees lmao.

Also please let this thread die i got my questions answered.
