Did some beans and compared to the video as I went. I don't know if I don't understand Stan's rule about corners and twisting forms overlapping or if he doesn't follow his own rule, but I overlapped forms the opposite way that Stan would do it about 80% of the time. It was getting a little frustrating

How would you get started putting out a web comic? What are the basics a noob should make sure they are doing, whether that's art wise or story wise or promotion wise etc, and how would you try to gain a readership? Thanks!

Is it terrible to not hold the pencil the same way as Stan? This is totally foreign to me and between that and trying to draw more from my shoulder, I am losing whatever little accuracy I used to have.

I don't think so. There are no rules in art. I think Stan's method is used in the fine at world because it crosses over into painting and because their paper or canvas is vertical in front of them most of the time. I'm interested in comics and I will do pretty much all of that digitally, so it makes very little sense to practice the Stan method for me. Think about your goals and what you want to do and then you can decide what will give you the results you want. If you want to paint traditionally for example, it might be worth taking time to learn this technique. Sometimes it is useful to try new things and get out of our comfort zone, but ultimately I need to use whatever works best for the results I want.

Nice work! It's good that most of the poses aren't stiff. Make sure not to get stuck doing gesture. Learning basic anatomy also helps improve your gesture and shape design.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm going to move on to other things, but I still want to do gesture everyday on top of new subjects.

I have two questions, what would be the best way to post things in the same place everyday, example would be I want to do 20 gestures everyday and post them so they are in the same collection? Second is I don't feel skilled enough to provide critiques, but should I just do it anyway?

added a new topic
Daily gesture
5mo
I'm learning how the app works so I'm going to see if I can create a topic to post gesture drawings everyday. Trying to create the habit.

Haven't drawn in a while, and I usually don't post anywhere, but I need to get in the habit for both so here goes. Just followed along to the video today, but I'll start using other references tomorrow. Going to shoot for 20 a day to start. Feeling pretty rusty and messy, 😂

Hello Mr. Finch! If you're not already going going to talk about this, I'd just like to hear what your first course on proko is all about and what you would like students to get out of it? Also, what are your plans for future courses and instruction, if any? Thanks a bunch! I'm really looking forward to your instruction! I've been wanting to get into comics, and I think you're an amazing teacher and artist.
