So happy i found this community and site!! Couldnt have found Proko at a more crucial time. Struggling at life, overwhelmed by past mistakes, and intimated society's depictions of "success". I was starting to spiral down the self-hating drain again. I was lost in a bad place in my mind. I felt really alone and defeated. One day my therapist gave me a homework assignment, "I want you to paint your feelings." I wasnt prepared for the level of difficulty this task came with. Oddly enough, i really developed a passion for drawing and visual art while i was in jail. Being locked up in a 8x8 cell for 17 months really changed me; the way i see things, how i spend my time, and what i value in life. But I'd never tried to actually paint anything. It was really hard but i took advice from people online and sat, uncomfortably, for a long time with myself. It took me several weeks to complete the small 10" x10" "emotions painting" but i discovered a few things about me in the process and i had created something visually that i was really proud of! Well, that was two months ago. I want to just see if maybe theres something healing for me in creating visual art. Thank you thank you thank you for creating proko! My gratitude for this resource is unparalleled. #lifesaver #feelingoptimistic #somethingtolookforwardto #arttherapy
I like drawing anime styled art and after watching sooooo many of your tutorials... I managed to draw this!
my first try, i had a hard time since im bad at shading especially traditionally. This is basically also my first portrait drawing ,i only learned how to draw the shape of the head which is with loomis method but i haven't practiced the other details of the face. im gonna try again tomorrow.
I’m not really a fan of pencils, so I did it with marker and pen. It looked decent until I ruined it with the hatching on the right side of the face. Still, I’m pretty happy with it. My portraits are pretty stylized but I tried to go with realism for once. Its also way more hatching than I regularly do. I do need a better way to draw the hair.
Hi Y'all! I'm looking forward to learning alongside everyone! I'm excited to learn the foundations so I can one day express myself fully through detailed drawings.
I recently bought the course, but I don't have access to the course, only the first chapter. No access to other chapters: lines, shapes, etc.
Hi everyone. I have been following Proko for a whole while now, I think 2+ years, and gushed over all the courses, never thought I could manage or take on any of the courses until this one came along but one small hurdle came along, I can't quite seem to get a schedule going. I am a beginner when it comes to drawing (well yeah, the course haha), is there any advice any Pro or anyone at all would be able to give me to be able to start on a schedule and be able to keep up with it? I searched countless YouTube videos and I cant quite seem to grasp a good method. Any help at all is appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.
hi, I just purchased the Drawing Basic Premium course, so Im new to Proko, but my problem is that I can't find any lessons, assignments or exampels in My Classroom, only the free YouTube video stuff, can you guys help me, cause I can't wait to get startet:)
Back to school! This is the first try of the level 2. Indeed, it's actually harder than it looks :) I think it's a bit too messy and I just see that I have not enough quantized my greys values. Too many levels. I won a second try. -> Make things simpler -> Focus more or global grey values than details
My attempt at pear. Relatively happy with ability to draw what I see. Think improvement can be made in the outlining of the shapes. Currenty too thick. Would be better to have the edge be defined by just shading/color. Especially on right side.
My pear! Spent about 40 minutes on it. Always been interested in learning to draw (mainly to make different DnD characters and scenes come to life) but never bothered to really go for it until now, so I'm very much a complete beginner. Looking forward to more assignments!
