I want to learn how to draw..but suck (need advice)(long read)
I just happen to be a random guy with a dream I want to be good at drawing , since the first moment I saw anime my dream has always been to be an awesome anime artist and an awesome story teller I am planing to make a manga/book hybrid ,thats why I came here I have seen your art , and man I feel like you are art gods compared to this newbie :(.
I live in a country (Mexico) were finding a drawing school or a comunity college is virtualy imposible so I lack the privilege you guys had: a teacher
Basicaly my only choice is self taugh and as you can see here this is how i began http://mythicsonofgod.deviantart.com/#/d1ndefi yeah I know its awful
after this I tried loomis ,but honestly maybe I am talentless I dont know but for me he is waay to hard as learning chinese , even more for me as a teacherless newbie :(
then I decided to look at the tutrials at deviant art(I dont even know/knew were to begin) ,and with all I read this is the best drawing I have ever made:
as you can see I tried all proporptions and shading (tough those are fake shades I realy dont know much about shades).
So basicaly I am frustated I am completely lost, curently I am drawing portraits with proportions but I feel like I am trying to drink an ocean with a cup :( without a teacher I dont even know If I should practice more basic stuff or if I should start with something else, well basicaly I am very confused.
DO you guys have any advice for me becuase curretnly I am feeling that I will never draw good being self taugh and I realy want to acomplish my dream help?
