LearnArt is a free open art learning resource built on the principles of free education and art access to all. Come check us out for feedback, guidance, and discussion!

Welcome to /r/Learnart, for artists and aspiring artists of all skill levels!


Rules for comments:

  1. Remember the person. We are people from all over the world, of many ages, languages, cultures, and educational backgrounds who all want to improve our art. Sometimes miscommunication happens, just be cool.

  2. Give constructive feedback, including examples of what works or doesn’t work. “I like the use of color” or “the legs are too short” are much more helpful than “I like it” or “I don’t like it.”

  3. Be civil. Jokes at another person’s expense, personal attacks, flaming, derailing threads, name-calling, trolling, and generally being an asshole will get you banned.

Rules for posting:

  1. Include images. Include your own work if you have a specific question so that you get clear feedback. Include reference images if used.

  2. Group multiple drawings into one post. Multiple posts made in a short time period will be removed as spam. Post multiple images as a gallery or as multiple links in one text post.

  3. Keep it on-topic. Extremely long personal posts, questions requiring medical expertise, or anything that cannot be reasonably addressed by art learners about making art will be removed.

  4. Unhelpful tutorials will be removed. This includes videos and pages lacking clear instruction, speedpaints, timelapses, and anything with significant amounts of misinformation.

  5. Spam will be removed, including posts of the same art content across many subreddits without a reasonable attempt at engaging with the /r/learnart community.

Tips on how to learn posing/posing software to use?

Hi, I'm trying to learn/get used to posing and drawing people/objects from different angles, and I'd love tips on how to proceed, as well as recommendations for software/sites that are good for posing, that would work on my Surface Pro 8. Thank you in advance <3

Learning to draw (day 3)

So I realized I should focus more on gestures and less on whatever this is, at least for now. I wont focus so much on the details and more-so on the pose itself tomorrow

Hi! I'm working on a panel for my webtoons and I'm really really not used to or comfortable with this angle from above. Can I get critiques? I'm not sure the building bricks are at the right angle or their poses? Really any and all critiques are welcome! Thank you!

Digital art beginner guidance

Hellooo. Probably this question has floated around somewhere but I cannot really find a concrete answer. I have been using Photoshop and illustrator for quite some time now doing graphic design, photo manipulations, surreal art designs and etc. by no means I'm an expert but not a beginner as well. Recently - a week ago I bought my first tablet with stylus and have quite adapted to it, in terms of graphic design. I have always wanted to be able draw and I know, from what I have seen most of the times it is advised to start with paper and pencil with the comment of stating that you Photoshop is a medium, you have to learn a medium + drawing which = overwhelming etc. I do not want to go traditional, I want to start the basics digitally. Is there a guide or curriculum for that? My end goal is to be able to draw characters or illustrations of any kind, which comes to mind, from dark fantasy to a jelly character farting bubbles in his jelly room, but want to do it correctly.

30 minute value and color studies

I did some more value and color studies, around 30 minutes per piece. I hope I can get some feedback and critiques on things to improve. I feel like I always have trouble with orange-yellow color. It's a little bit hard to distinguish between dark orange and reddish brown for me.

Anything I could have done better with perspective or shading?

The back or front seems off, and the wheels look strange, to say the least. Critique would be appreciated.

especially with the fist… i’m not good with coloring yet but as i’m trying to color this fist it just looks a little small in comparison with the other hand? but maybe i’m wrong so im looking for a second opinion :’)
