any loomis ways to draw 3d forms from cylinders to wheels to etcetras, in any perspective and angle, that looks correctly? i have outrageous problems with simple things in a certain angles... like a car wheel turning inside... which means it should look like the side view of the wheel... a generic look, but somehow i cant be sure of its shape....

ok new question, how do i define the positions,direction, length, angle, curvature of the curves and lines required to form the image of the forms attached precisely, relying on...whatever perspective, the view and the object's properties? tldr, guessing+drawing lines and curves correctly

hello...any tips to draw curves for this turned car wheel(yellow), given relative shapes like the wheel's hole(blue) or given vanishing point lines (green) of the subjects so to make it right? I also find the innee circle(red) conpletely confusing to draw to "correction" and fail to find any good reference to build the lines... basically, how do i draw the correct curves/line from my mwmory to represent the subject/image as correctly as possible?

>>2492 whats with the icons >scoro oh yeah. good stuff, basically iterations of al the basic stuffs. very cool, but nothing new to me. lots of linear perspectives... but i cant find curves in the book good share, do you know anything else like that?

>>2418 I love her smug expression. Watch out for tangents though. You want your lines to have a clear origin and termination; in the case of the area right here you not only have the contours of two tufts of hair basically combining into one, but her jawline sort of joins the mass as well. I think I mentioned something about this before but it's kind of hard to explain and I'm pretty sure I was never able to find that article I wanted to show you... UNTIL NOW! Check it out: https://artofvisualthinking.blogspot.com/2012/10/those-pesky-tangents.html

I uh...actually found a couple more. It might seem nitpicky and it is, but once you know what to look for you'll instantly know what to avoid and your work will improve/read clearer.

And the Sunday draw. Some aliens, some very stylish drawings, a smattering of cringe. I had to run off in a hurry due to Unforeseen Circumstances, but it looks like our fine participants successfully managed to avoid burning the place down to the ground. If our Loomis would be so kind as to have a crack at turning the two captures into a collage of aliums and alium accessories while leaving out the not-quite-aliums like Pokeymen for the theme thread, I would be much obliged. Thanks for dropping by.
>>2436 Sure thing; I'll get it when I get home as I promised few weeks ago.

anyone ever get stuck with their ideas so much they fear of changing to another thing? like stan lee likes ironman so he just sticks ironman in all other marvel stories universe how do you dwi? since life dont just go your wat obv especially how marvel just do that thing they do only, maybe to be original and avoid infringement too idk
>>2359 Your post is hard to follow, but I think I understand what you're asking. It's good if you have an idea that you really like, but I also think it's important to be able to detach yourself from the idea. If the idea is naturally changing itself from one form into the other, try to put aside any personal attachment and ask: is it changing for the better or worse? It might be that the new idea has the parts of the old idea that you like, but also adds something else you prefer. Maybe it discards some part of the old idea that wasn't very good. I think this is a relevant interview for the discussion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4b9YuMIwXk Between the 35 minute to 50 minute mark, the topic of leaving projects behind comes up. There's nothing wrong with taking an idea, working on it and doing something with it, and then just stopping. It might be a really good idea, it's probably not the best idea you'll ever have, and it's definitely not gonna be the last one you have. I think it's good motivation to know that you haven't yet had your best ideas. But if you get stuck on the same idea for too long, you end up stalling when you could move on to better ideas. Also, I'd recommend listening to the whole interview. I think it's pretty good, and Psychicpebbles has some good insight into working creatively.
>>2361 aw man, good content, thanks i ll chek it out slowly. well i dont know about good idea, i get stuck easily with original idea because i dont have any solution to just move on to new things... it s not very easy for me. basically wanting your first move to be excellent to the crowd to ensure enough repeat business? does that make sense? like wanting batman to be a hit so superman can run or hoping that superman is a hit so you can do flash and also include supes in it? whst do you call this? anxiety? i have some ideas i really like and im not sure i know how to just change away from it. its terrible.
