Sorry im kinda late, good sick in the middle of exams, and that didnt end too well OTL. Mostly fine so far, though i dont find im on conditions to make a video so you'll excuse me if i skip it this time.
Anyway, im about to go to sleep, though i wanted to post this at elast on saturday since i couldnt on wednesday.
Where did we leave it? oh ye, Hentai. How did you start drawing Hentai/Porn??
There's not gonna eb any subject index being a single point, and let's get stright to it.
Why did i start drawing hentai/Porn?
Simply put, it's the best perspective, dynamics, anathomy, and human-body (and in some people animal, squid, octopus, alien......, lets leave it at that) mutual interaction and sense of interaction you cna probably achieve.
SPECIALLY THE INTERACTION AND SENSE OF PERSPECTIVE. As someone who some starters come to asking for crits, it gets tiring to sometimes see a boy and a girl holding hands, and it looks like they are just copy-pasted there, having bodies htat act completly undiferent to the fact they are holding each other.
So back on the days i started drawing 4 years ago (and some months maybe, was between 15-16 yrs old---- ya 4 yrs anda couple months.) i was having fun drawing my fav animecharacters, manga characters, random characters, random cars, and viva al randomness. But there was something that was lacking, and that probably was the sens eof nice-ness on my drawings. they looked stiff, shitty, as if they had some broom as a backbone. No naturallity. There started thinking, well bitch (real men can call themselves bitch, more stright than ever), your characters are plain as paper.
I DREW CLOTHES OVER BODIES.
That's the main cause while most noob/starters/newbies/whateveryouprefer/... 's characters look plain.
So i started drawing the body before the clothes
............. and realized i sucked balls at it.
So i looked for references on naked bodies, etc.. and realized, ok that muscle body is good for practise but stiff as a broom, i want dynamics. And i realized, heck, where do i find bodies on dynamic positions, naked? if you're over 12 you prolly know it. Porn.
So i started pbrowsing those light porn sites with those models posing on such indecent looks---- ya fuck it am no nun, loved that shit. But when im drawing im drawing. with both ahnds on the table.
And so started RARELY drawing naked women (mostly, men too, but not as much as you can understand unless you're some sort of brat) on diferent poses, and at a certain point i drew some sex scenes.
Now, thruth is i never detailed those pics, they were usually rough doodles to get sense of perspective and such. Only detailed them when some friend with alot fo fantasies would as me to draw him some erotic scene like this or that. And it was really rare. Only drew like 10 erotic drawings on 3 years till i started taking requests, and late ron comissions.
As i said priorly, they dont turn myself on, so drawing porn was only a resource i used when i had spare time to spend on practising bodies or when i felt i needed anathomy practise (which i still need, ALOT).
It wasnt till the summer of 2009 tha ti bought a sketch book and filled it with erotic stuff mixed with MATH and Chemistry exercises's notes for summer homework (was quite interesting to my friends seeing equations and a girl masturbating right next to it). The reason to fill it with porn was because i went with friends over Belgium's Graspop for the 4 days it lasted and i used ot get lots of requests for the fun of it.
And that's really how i started drawing porn, simply put, as a body practise.
Nowadays i rarely draw it unless its a comission. Though i must say im ejoying it far more than before, being something i rarely draw and now it's like a whole new world to explore, and to satisfy people. And it gives me some moneys. yey-
On a side note, i'd like to point out light porn is really a good reference for anathomy, and found that lots of teachers who you get along with and are not stupid moralist fuckheads agree with me, and even recomend it to some students (oviously those students tend to be +18, since its usually the age you at least ahve when you enter art academies and such, unless you skipped school that is) who have anathomy issues. If you think about it, if you go to a decent art school you might have a model come sometimes for anathomy scketching practise (in my case was sessions of sketching the model using different technikes qithin 30 seconds, or 1 minute before she would change the pose), and that model is gonna be naked probably.
So you're essentially drawing a naked person, which its kinda like light porn, only deffering that light porn is supposed to turn you on, which is good since it offers more poses you can practise. And if you're serious about it, the same way you dont mind having a naked chick posing for you while you sketch, you wont mind having the pic of a stripper spreading her legs. You'll only care where the spine is, where the ribcage goes, how does the hips connect with the legs, etc...
Of course if you're an immature kid you'll end up fapping/fingering yourself, but then again i wonder if you're even mature enough to considering an art life more than a plain hobbie you'll just drop when you get too busy with your daily life. -shrug.
Again, i'll make a new one as soon aspossible to try payback for that wednesday one i couldn't send off, and again any new topics you'd like to see me talk/write about, let me know!
