Crap Anatomy by jollyjack Crap Anatomy by jollyjack
I get a fair few emails and messages asking for tips or advice on how to draw.
There's only ever one response that I give and that's "practice". With each stroke of the pen you get better at using it and your own personal style and method becomes that bit more honed. Even if the final result of the image on which you are currently working does not turn out to be a masterpiece; the effort of its production will certainly not have been in vain. You'll have exercised a technique and gained a little experience.

I'll be the first to admit there are a great many faults with my own methods, but I stick to my own advice and keep working at it, often posting the results here.

Does bring out the cretins, though.

"WTF is this? Learn to anatomy!"

Yes, nothing makes me feel more superior than a troll with no grasp of grammar.

Badly proportioned anatomy is excusable if the picture looks good at the end, imho

cartoons are suppose to be exaggerated, if this guy wanted proper anatomy, he should have gone to a museum and looked up greek sculpture

I enjoy your art and I don't really care if you are drawing people (or "people" or whatever) "wrong."

So I'm guessing the troll's a "dildo" of some sort?

Is it just me or did you manage to capture the dick-like anatomy of a troll perfectly
Jester-of-the-Clown Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
My suggestion? Do life drawing. You'll fucking love it.
OtherGender Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
anatomy's not too important unless it's high ground. It's not a bad thing, though. It never should be.
wallymyiguana Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012

You draw cartoons- since when is that a medium that requires realism?

I agree with the "practice" comment- like any muscle or skill, drawing has to be trained. I'm still learning myself, but I'm improving.

But aside from all of that rambling, this is pretty funny. :D
MarikBentusi Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
Cartoons are a sliding scale of abstraction from realism, some styles take more hints from realism than others. Thus it's always a good thing to know how to draw realism as a starting point so you can stay flexible.
thegoodsamaritan Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, yeah, I get that. But there's nothing wrong with making things more stylistic than usual.

But I get what you're saying, anyhow.
philipino93 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I respect you even more now (p.s. I just had to spam your page one more time. Sorry)
Stookam Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
Truer words have never been spoken, in both cases.

I wonder if it's just blindly following human nature that makes trolls behave the way they do, or if there's actually something wrong with them upstairs.
dark-klawd Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Words of wisdom..... screw anatomy I say -_- makes drawings too serious.
Cow-In-A-Keyhole Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Riiiight. You draw comic chicks with breasts and hips making up two thirds of their body and with a waist the thickness of their neck. Still, people assume you're just bad at drawing, instead of of thinking of the possibility that you're not really trying to be realistic. That's just sad.

So fucking true xD
Ultraviolet-Oasis Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011
I do believe that the perfect comeback for any critic is, "Well then, let's see your work; shall we?"

Oddly enough, they who are most critical are the most likely to have not produced anything.

Myself, I produce such crap that it can't be criticized... there's nowhere to go with a critique.
veiwer13 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011
can work two ways

1)they think you're answering their question, and don't get the hurt reaction they wanted and/or 2)they realize a while later that you could have been treating them as a dog [such as "no boy! bad! do not rant to anyone but yourself!"]

or i'm just thinking about this wrong/too much
4madeus Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011
I'll keeep this response in mind the next time some doof decides to lecture me about anatomy.
Cutter9792 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
I'm like this to myself. I don't draw as much as I should because I'm so shit at perspective and backgrounds.
aereonphoenix Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
Who gives a rats arse, your art work is fantastic and if they don't like it THEN WHY LOOK AT IT! ITS CALLED A EXIT BUTTON! dumb arses. Besides if everyone had the same style art would be extremely boring and be an expression of conformity and not self expression.

I love that! Can you truly be a troll if you post grammatically correct sentences?

Dick head.
Literally, it's a dick-head just look at it! haha
Desuno Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011
I find your depiction of the Troll agreeable. Well depicted, sir!
AlexEvansArt Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011
ahhhh grammar just gets in the way of angry and spitefull comments

oh well
too bad people dont always use the backspace button and think about what harsh things they are communicating before they take the time to type spitefull things
vincent-h-nguyen Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
LOL! wow that troll is trying his best to annoy him and that didn't phase the guy. XD
misteroverlord Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
Those who can't, criticise.

You only find the dozens of hate mails you get if you wade through a sea of positive reviews.
hmsnike Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2011
The one and only solution to Trolls.

Ignore them.

For they do not listen to rational discourse and angry retorts will only result in hypocritical claims that YOU are the troll - which they will report to their pet moderators. Thus, the solution is to not even acknowledge them.

Well done, sir.

would it be missing the point to point out the troll has a pointy head?

Trolls & dildos both have pointy heads.
