Takes practice and patience if your going to draw cute anime girls. watch slowly and copy then once you have made a decnt amount of ones you like start drawing your own from pics you find on the internet, then once you get really good at that you can start creating your own original drawlings

Buy see through paper and print her on piece of paper and trace her and claim you drew it.

a 4 year old could draw that nigga
Not me apparently. I'm mainly trying to replicate that early 2000s anime style both in the characters and in the background styling though I guess that's better expressed through colours

There's also this early flash comic style I wanna try out but it looks easier to replicate digitally

Yeah I should do that. I've been practicing for years but only focused on drawing faces and totally forgot about the rest lol

Tracing can only get you so far. I need to get good at so I can become a creep who instantly draws anyone I like in public to my exact imagination and coom to it at home :feelsheh: I used to want to draw like the renaissance era paintings and European hyperrealism but that sounds like an insurmountable task

It‘s probably gonna take years. As a NEET maybe 3 years. Maybe less or more depending on how much you practice.

It's a good cope and I need it so I can spend more time drawing than rotting. I enjoy drawing but always drop it because I feel like I'm not improving and just doing the same thing again and again. I get that rushing it won't change much but I just really need to push myself to learn

Learn how to draw real people somewhat accurately then learn how to exaggerate that to make it look like anime.

Learn how to draw basic shapes, shade, and color those shapes. Then, start taking something more complicated and breaking it down into those shapes and always draw everyday
Take reference photos or hell even trace if you have to (only for learning dont post traced art you nonce)

Also i dont think drawing coomfuel is a good motivation

you learn to draw by drawing the shit around you and random objects like fruit or anything around your house

dont expect perfection or anything good, you start out by developing dexterity and getting your hand used to moving the pencil/pen/whatever a certain way

unironically just drawing over and over again until your hands and eyes get used to it

If you want it to look good starting out, hold the pencil lightly/ avoid harsh lines. For example if you’re not sure how to draw a particular line, sketch a few different possibility lightly and erase the ones that don’t look right
Copying references like the ones u posted / Attention to detail / reworking a lot with the eraser can help u make good initial drawings, but they won’t necessarily improve your base skill (anatomy / understanding shapes / repetition)

Tracing is actually helpful imo. If you trace on a computer especially i found it improved my ability overall. You will be following the lines precisely for one rather than what you think the line should be. I traced irl photos to make cartoonish versions of people and it helped me get a better sense of how to draw facial features and 3d environments. Also low effort, low risk and just fun to play around with rather than fucking up your drawing at the end.
Avoid drawing from imagination before you are comfortable with the fundamentals imo unless you aren't the type of person to be demoralised by your absolutely flat, lifeless shitstains. Drawing random objects like a mug or self portrait isn't too difficult to get a decent result and will help you draw shit in 3d. There are shit tons of resources - proko is often recommended, drawabox (weird and pissed me off by insisting i buy a fine liner) but supposedly good, loomis method for heads. Wish i had better idea of fundamental skills that make you a better artists. Im guessimg if you draw a wide variety of things using an irl reference you will pick most things up naturally rather than reading 50 books. Easier to keep at it if you're not drawing shitty pictures too so dont spend all your time working on challenging shit
