I need some opinion

I've been thinking on the way I draw, and was wondering if it's noticable to others that I don't use any sort of planning or skeletal structure when it comes to drawing? If it is noticable, what are your thoughts as far as the anatomy?

Thanks~

Yes, it's totally obvious that you don't use any sort of underdrawing or planning, because if you did, you wouldn't draw a guy wearing a cap which is smaller than his skull.

I think the proportions do in fact look off. And everyone's a bit stiff. You'd really benefit from some study in the arm/shoulder department.

yah i can notice it. but for somebody that doesn't use it i would say it's better than others i've seen that don't use it. anatomy can be fun to study though. definetly worth it to look into it. and i would agree with rovanna that they do look balanced.

Yes, the people look a little 'flat' especially when they are in different poses.

Thanks for the reply~ ok, so how's proportion of the body? If you feel they look 'flat' what would you recommend to remedy it?

The proportions are fine, they are cartoony, but look balanced.

You may not like my answer, but I suggest learning life drawing, and drawing real people from ferences. That's how all pro anime artists and cartoonists learn about the human body. It will help you to see the human body as a 3D form and will make your poses look more natural. :)

Well that's good to know~

Naw~ your answer is fine, and I asked for it :) If I couldn't handle some constructive criticism it would be dumb to expose myself to it~ I suppose you're right, and I'll give it a try. I usually draw off my knowledge of the body(head, neck, shoulders, so on and so forth), and usually make the pose as I go along. Thanks again for your opinion~

Yes. It's obvious.

You are building your art with a series of symbols you have learned off of other artists.

If you're drawing humans, first you should look at real humans, and then apply the symbols you want to use to humans, instead of working entirely in prelearned symbols with no nod to a real figure.

Anime eyes and face shapes and styling can be applied to learning figure studies, but you can't do the reverse and learn figures only from anime.

First off~ what do you mean by symbols? ^^;

Symbols are things we learn about how things should look. Such as how this can be a smile :)

In general people draw what they think they know about human anatomy from their head, through a set of learned symbols. Like how a child will draw a stickman. You know that people have 2 legs and 2 arms, and that girls have boobs and we have feet etc. But you are continually drawing them the way your brain thinks they look. Ie with the learned symbols.

As opposed to really studying how these things actually are you just continue to repeat what your head is telling you.

But in actual fact you learn to draw by learning to see.

Hahaha~ thanks for the explanation. I sorta just wrote basically what you explained with my talk with Rovanna on how I draw~ So seeing as I got 2 ppl telling me to draw actual human bodies I suppose I'll give it a try. Thanks for your opinion

You can add anime features, or such, but that should be your conscious decision. Not a decision you make because you can't do anything else, if you get me.

Not really, I would've thought you used somewhat of a gist of it before drawing out the body. They look a little rigid but curving slightly to the right.
