I've seen a lot of very good Babyfur artwork around. But I'm the kind of person who has to draw my own, so that it's "mine". So, I'm trying to learn to draw. I'm having a lot of difficulty with it. This is not my first time trying to learn. I've had art classes in the past but I've been frustrated by drawing apples and streets and other things that don't interest me.
I'm decent at drawing objects like appliances, buildings, and vehicles. I can draw things that have hard angles and obvious lines. But I've never been much good at drawing people or clothing or anything else that doesn't have clear symmetry.
I can reproduce artwork by hand if I have a picture in front of me. I do it by breaking the picture down into simple shapes and noting where each shape is positioned relative to the other shapes. But I know this is the "wrong way" to draw. And if I try to draw something original on a blank slate I don't even know where to start.
I know that there are tons of art books around and I know that there are art websites too. But I get bored and frustrated with drawing things and using styles that don't interest me.
So, if anyone has any tips about what books to buy or where to look for answers, or anything else, please tell.
