I'm getting there. I memorized almost every aspect of anatomy (I still have to memorize hands and feet and to understand better shoulder/clavicle/scapula articulation), and my vision is turning more and more 3D, the latter was mainly the reason i had to re-learn to draw.
Until last year, I 'imagine' things as lines, while now I imagine things as volumes, and i had to adapt (and learn) to this drawing way. Seeing things in volumes instead of lines, made moving the human body easier.
But I can't update anything new yet. I need to work hard on Rough Dream, hoping it will be the last draft (I allowed a person to read the basic plot. He said that the story is solid and everything make sense), to work on my drawing style, and to work on all my character design (to be sure they look all different, i'm studying them without their features like hair and clothes, i just study those features that can't change. Plus, during the story, a couple of character change their physical shape (due to fattening and/or getting thinner) quite dramatically, so i need to make sure that they will change shape coherently while still remaining unique.
when i will be satisfied with my characters, i will test them (here on DA - at that time you will see some my drawing), so I count on your help. Later I will do the turnaround with Sketch up (I can sculpt in sketch up and create whatever I want) because since nobody can draw a model perfectly, at least i would have a perfect model reference for my OCs.
I'll keep to study anatomy and other things where I'm weak.
I have problems at colouring. I don't like to colour in other way than toon shading, but unfortunately, is important to learn to paint realistically, the same way you learn to draw realism.
Is also true I never learned to colour. When I went to art school, I was so bad at drawing that my teachers forbade me to colour (and even to apply tones), because I had to learn to draw first (because of this, I was even excluded - and I was the only - from a project that was commissioned to my class). And later I read somewhere that if you can't draw, learning to colour doesn't make sense. And I realised is true, because when you colour you need to pay attention to volumes and all things that at that time I could not even understand.
Rough Dream will be mostly black and white, but there will be covers and illustrations that will be coloured, for this I need to learn to colour.
About the diet. I gained one kilo, when i was near to the end.
Do you know how much I eat every day? 800/1000 calories. And i gained weight! A person of my size should eat 1200 calories every day (my mum eat 1200 calories every day and she can keep her weight. I would get fat with 1200 calories every day. We have the same body type) .
