I've spent a long time on Loomis and others and feel like I have a rudimentary grasp on drawing heads. How do I start figure drawing that isn't just drawing what I see but understanding the construction?
Who is the Loomis of figure drawing and how do you keep from getting overwhelmed by learning the construction of every part of the body?
Well, I was painting this with a lot of inspiration, I painted the background and thought it would be great to add some sort of "shaded" mountains, so I started to paint them and when I realise... I just fucked up all my previous work, I'm frustrated. Can someone help me out with ideas? How can I fix that?

>>2274105 So, we had this pic (pic related), in last thread, but you, Firez, chose to post that one for drawthread header, for some reason. Well, that's just great, isn't it. Hidden hands, boring gesture, plain face, just lines.
What pen Da Vinci used to create drawings like pic related? How he and other artists were able to obtain such slim lines with ink, such thin traces? I am using a 0,4 millimeter pen and yet the trace is not that thin.
So, what tools did Leonardo used the most in his notebooks (I know that sepia ink is the thing responsible for that brownish-red color, but what pens), and what are the best drawing pens I can buy for a reasonable price today (pens with a very slim line)?
Is giving a painting as a gift a good thing? I was thinking of painting something for a qt but I'm not sure if it would be awkward or not. I have no money and she says she likes Monet. It seems really difficult to replicate though.
I don't get it, what is the process for making this kind of background, traced or not? Is there any tutorial or video that shows/explain how they do it ? I mean, japanese animators need to draw fast because of their slave like salary, how much would it take the average one to make a drawing with this amount of details and such a nice render?
>>2273168 I paint in memory of my best friend who died in a car accident a few years ago. He's the one that got me into art, and so when I'm putting brush to canvas it's the only time I can ever truly feel close to him anymore. Nah fuck off tho
