TIPS FOR BEGINNER ARTISTS AND ANIMATORS

TIPS FOR BEGINNER ARTISTS AND ANIMATORS



嗨大家好,我是CypherDen,今天來個不一樣的影片,
希望你們會喜歡 所以,你想成為一名正港的藝術家(創作者)或動畫家但又是不會讓自己餓死的那種 好的首先,繪畫並不是什麼超能力 我很希望是啦但它不是 你不可能會稍微畫個小蜘蛛,然後在一夕之間睡覺醒來,畫工就突然進步到達文西等級了 抱歉,但天下沒有白吃的午餐 8個給創作者、動畫初學者的小技巧 第一步,
找一個作品集網站(社群平台),先說我現在要講的這個是我一個贊助商,但我真的推薦它,不管了 一個常被創作者們忽略最重要的要點,就是找一個作品集網站 一個可以上傳你作品、讓其他人給予回饋、追蹤你 以及讓你能與其他創作者們互動的一個平台 Amino就是這樣子的一個平台,如果你是一個剛起步的創作者,想要一個分享你的作品的地方 Amino是一個絕佳好選擇 它們有很多來自我動畫界偶像的作品集社群,像是wolfychu還有Tony V toons 還有很多不同種類的作品集社群,你可能會感興趣 照現在說,CypherDen也在Amino創建了一個作品集社群,這裡你可以上傳你的粉絲作品給我瞧瞧,與我交流 我原先就想從做故事動畫開始,因為我想讓你們多認識我一點 然而頻道成長速度太快了,經營得有點措手不及 所以我才決定在Amino裡面創立一個作品集社群,好讓我們可以對話、閒聊,還有我可以發帖偷窺瀏覽 你們給我的意見,告訴我「這真是個餿主意,Den,別做傻事啊」 差不多說,在往後我想要辦一個公開且良好的活動與你們交流 具體來說就是用繪圖板當贈品,幫助這些在Amino裡的可愛人群們 踏上成為超強創作者的道路 你唯一要做的就是,確認你是CypherDen Animo官方帳號的一員並且上傳的粉絲作品確實是你的 我會挑幾個我最喜歡的粉絲作品,你們可以在Amino上投票認為誰該贏得贈品 我也會盡我所能地去回應海量的訊息 第二步,每天畫畫,每個你憧憬的創作者都會告訴你,要嘛練習要嘛每天畫畫 這說法超級老掉牙,但也無可否認 你不可能在毫無練習的狀況下學會如何畫人臉 就像人生所有事一樣 一個你專精的技術,反覆練習就是你每天的功課 每天畫畫會讓你看見進步,學會培養觀點以及繪畫技巧,此外 你會藉由每天畫畫而漸漸地開拓出你的藝術風格 你知道Instagram上的人們都只展現他們生活最美好的那一面給大家看,大多數的藝術家也都只會把他們最棒的作品呈現出來 你永遠不會看到完成品的背後那些不堪入目的草稿以及為了拿來減少創作時間的參考圖 他們只會讓你看到經嘔心瀝血後的傑作,然後你就會想說 「天啊,這些作品一定都出自於高手」 事實並非如此,有很多創作者 都有堆的像山一樣高的草圖本,裡面盡是作研究以及一堆永不示眾的噁爛畫,這些都是完全沒問題的 一個草圖本完全就是只為你而存在的,一個你完全可以隨意你畫你爽就好的地方 而且根本不需要有多完美,每天畫畫就對了,畫那些你喜歡的甚至不喜歡的東西都好 通常你會不喜歡去畫某些你可能不知道怎麼畫才好看的東西 但畫那些你不喜歡的東西才會使你成長,你總不可能說 「喔嘿,我是個專業繪師,我很會畫眼睛,就這樣,快雇用我吧」 第三步,觀摩你喜歡的作品,你會喜歡某些特定的作品以及為何被這些作品感動,都是有原因的 它們一定有某個點被你所喜歡,你可以觀摩它們使用的配色、角色動作、佈局排版等等 我曾經在某個地方讀到一句話:「你是所有你喜歡的事物裡其中一個馬賽克」(渺小但獨一無二) 所以請發展出自己的獨特,你不會想成為一昧模仿別人的山寨貨 那樣不會成就你 我個人呢,很喜歡去看別人的繪畫過程影片,因為這可以讓我彌補我不太熟悉的地方 你也可以做個筆記,學起別人的繪圖技術與加工處理方式 第四步,觀看教學影片,現在網路上什麼都能學習,教學影片真的是我的最愛 很多創作者們都會把 他們所了解的相關知識拍成影片,你只要邊看邊學就好,像是onion skin Sacré以及draw with Jazza就是非常好的教學影片頻道 你只要看他們的影片就能了解如何做動畫 我曾去藝術學校學習動畫過 但我現在都看影片自學了 我開始找影片特效相關頻道叫做film riot,一路以來他們都有教學影片 我就在他們的影片裡開始學會After Effects(特效軟體) 但請記住,就算你看影片看到眼睛瞎掉,沒有自己動手試做過一遍的話 那就只是在起跑線上轉圈而已,想想看 你只是熬夜看了別人勞動的影片不代表就會消耗掉你五分鐘前吃掉漢堡的熱量 我只是隨口說說啦 第五步,參考別人的作品 這很重要,別指望你能夠完美畫出腦袋所想的東西 在網路上去參考別人怎麼畫並引用到你的作品上並沒有錯,去參考別的角色的穿著再引用到自己的角色身上 也並不為過,你不需要強求一切都是原創,參考別人的東西 是讓你的角色創作看起來有聲有色非常非常非常非常重要的一環 再次重申,參考別人的創作是完全沒有問題的,就連專業繪師都會這麼做 有些創作新手會基於某些原因不相信這種說法 但他們會與同樣作品很糟糕的人一樣一蹋糊塗,別理會他們 參考別人的作品很重要,這也是為何會有作品集網站就是來給你參考用 臨摹跟硬抄襲別人再喊自己是原創,是不一樣的 你只是改了別人角色的髮色並不會因此變成你的角色,記住 這是兩回事,但我還是把它點出來 第六步,耐心,勇敢面對現實吧,你別妄想一步登天 你終究還是要經歷風雨的,一次又一次 並非每件事情你都能一次做成,這道理天經地義 你一定要耐心,這很花時間 但你必須每天練習繪畫與動畫,即便你下課或下班回家後累得跟狗一樣 你仍要拿起畫筆、鋼筆或什麼筆的來做點什麼 耐心點、專心做,別害怕失敗,很多人告訴我他想當創作者 然後是影片創作或YouTube,你想要加入創作或動畫領域 但還要等你年紀夠大、有空在做或者等你畫畫技巧更好以後? 我想告訴你的是,機會不是光等就有的,你越是等待就越是推遲 到頭來就只是竹籃打水一場空而已 把那顆球做滾動動畫,拿起畫筆開始創作吧,停止找藉口了 你不會一筆成大師,但你正在成為大師的路上 一開始你的作品還沒什麼觀眾,但你還是起步了,反正不論你做什麼,不… 要 害怕 最後但也很重要的一點,真心去熱愛你所做的事,如果你做YouTube影片,請出自於真心 不要只是為了追求名利,如果你名利雙收,那是件好事 但請你樂在其中地創作是出自於你對此事物的熱愛 我做YouTube影片就是因為我喜歡帶給觀眾歡笑 而這的確是我所熱愛做的事情 希望這支影片或多或少可以幫助道你們,我不是達文西,但我盡力提供最好的建議給你們 再次感謝超讚的Amino贊助這支影片 別忘記我們還有贈品喔,趕快送出你的粉絲作品到CypherDen Amino吧 別忘記按下喜歡按鈕,這會讓我放屁,但也有可能是因為我吃了太多墨西哥捲餅 總之,下回見囉~波掰

  1. Hey guys! Come join the CypherDen Amino: http://m.onelink.me/22fe207
    Make sure you join the giveaway! Or just say hi! 🙂

  2. Okay so I have difficult plans for an 11 year old…😅
    I want to go to an overseas art college and move to Brighton England🤣
    I want to become an animator because I want people to be happy and smile😀 I have a difficult life with fam issues…sooo ya.
    I have a name I might use. Artie Panther😃 My nickname panther because I wear a lot of black😏
    I've always wanted to go to Brighton to see all the cool places🤗 Like in Jacksepticeye's vlogs.
    The hard part is that my fam is poor. Don't worry we're catching up,but some things just seem to come up at the worst of times. My dad left so it's kinda hard. I still see him except I kinda lost trust in him…I still have a decent bit but… he'll get super mad if he finds this and blame it on mom…
    I have social anxiety so it's even more difficult 🙁
    And more difficult because I live in America 🙁
    Wish me luck😁

    Edit
    Please don't freak out about my ranting. It makes me feel better.
    Have an amazing day 😘

  3. thank you so much for the tips the thing is i wish i can go to art school too but i donot have money to attend one i tried to find a cheap one sadly their none so my only option to practice home the problem here that am too lazy, confused , low self confident in my skills
    am the type of person that need somebody whos an artist to help me in reaching to my goals so thank you again for this awesome tutorial vedio it really helped me to get up on my feet again ❤🙏 also while watching your vedio its like you are reading my mind like the patience part 😂

  4. My parents taught me about perfection, if you can't do it then you can't do it, time is money, and you're just a kid so stay a kid and now, I can't do anything. Don't worry, I love my parents, they can just be a little closed minded. I have some space from them now that I'm in college to do the things I want to do even though I'm a little behind and need to work harder than some of my peers.

  5. SHE SAID EVERYTHING THAT WAS GOING THROUGH MY MIND 😱😭

    -Don’t Wait Till The Future
    -Practice EVERYDAY

  6. I don't know why I'm writing this, just an art rant. You can totally not read this if you want.

    This is just my story of finding my own art style and basically showing that Cypher is completely right in this video

    I remember it was maybe middle of May/early June (end of May or early June..) , and I've been watching animatics for a long time and still had no particular style or couldn't draw people in the slightest despite having taken visual arts classes for 4 years.

    I didn't watch any tutorials, well just 1 which was "finding your art style" by JelArts (who is an amazing artist you should totally support her!), so I did a pro gamer move and plunged right into the deep end of figuring it out myself.

    So naturally, I tried to take my own spin of cartoon, so the eyes were basically like ) ( and little ^ noses and huge heads, you get the idea.. And I was happy for the most part but nothing was consistent and I wanted a more "realistic" style, since I loved Szin's style if you ever heard of her.

    I don't really know how to describe this, but I started to just draw heads without a circle marker or anything, just using jawlines (I don't really recommend this method, but it works if you're just starting out). Eyes were more, idk how to describe it, but curved = signs with smaller circles for eyes, just imagine a normal eye but the ends don't entirely connect. Noses were more like v. I was pretty happy, I still had issues with larger heads than bodies and drawing basically anything other than the face and tops of shoulders but I was getting there.

    So for the next few days (this was like, early June now) of constant sketching, I was ending up with half finished head sketches, and drawing anything that wasn't 3 quarter view was an absolute pain (it's weird because most artists have trouble with 3 quarter views for people, but I guess I skipped that struggle). Heads were curvy and basically thicc ovals and I was like "nah".

    So now I was drawing heads with more defined jawlines, not just wavy, but proportions were kinda wack because I didn't use the circle technique so there was a lot of empty space on the faces. So I decided to really define the noses more, instead of just being v they were more => but you know, pointing downward. So, it looked weird but space was slowly getting filled. Then days later I decided to add a more rounding ^ over the v of the nose, and curving and even more defining the = lines. Everything started getting much more proportional, and after spending days of practicing hands I was finally getting better at drawing more than just the upper torso, I could draw poses and movements.

    Then I started the circle technique for the head. And holy cow it's great! Proportions are so much easier y'all. It helps me know how far down to put the jaw, or if the person is talking, how the jaw "bends". It helps with nose placement, which then helps for the lines and then eyebrows then ears then eyes then mouth. Hair is sometimes a pain but a lot easier to draw now. I've always known the 3 head rule when drawing shoulders, but for some reason it didn't really show in my art until I started using circles since it's easier to define how large the head is.

    I practiced facial expressions, various viewpoints. Even now I still struggle with things like legs if person is sitting down, and definitely shoes / feet. I've started making things like shoulders less curved and more slightly defined corners if that makes sense.

    It's been a month and a half to two months of constant drawing and I'm super happy with where I am now! The struggle is real though.. Shoes just.. I need to practice drawing them more, they've been a pain my whole life. But despite that I can draw mini comics and portraits and positions fairly easily!

    I guess the point to all this is that it took me about 2 months of constant daily sketching and researching and practicing to get to where I am now, not to mention I've taken 4 years of visual arts and only just now started creating a style of my own that's unique and nothing like anything else. But the process is fun, I totally encourage anyone that wants to learn how to draw people/characters to take the time to practice sketching until you end up with something you like and are passionate about.

    So yeah, if anyone actually read this, you deserve all the luck of animating in the world because idk why you would read my art-process-rant haha. Thanks for reading this Ted Talk.

  7. I just joined a club called "Artist Guild" and when someone showed my classmate her sketchbook i kinda saw and i kinda flipped through the pages of the sketchbook,i was surprised of how good the drawings were,and that actually inspired me a lil' bit and i got a little better at drawing, i kinda know how to mark and how marks work a little now
    (I only use a pencil and a pen like anyone does)

  8. actually im here cuz i thought its a tutorial how to make simple animation like page by page but then i read the title again and ,, "Oh yeah my bad " but on the the bright side i like it. nit regreting opening this vid

  9. It’s possible it gain the superpower of art by getting a head injury… or being born with it
    You can get it by savant syndrome which basically means your a genius in a very specific area,
    To get it you either be born with it, normally autism, though it’s still a low chance of getting it even with autism
    Or getting a head injury and forcing you to use a new part of the brain to replace the damaged part while being fixed,
    The unused part will still be active after, and if you happen it damage the right part (because some parts cannot be replaced, it needs to be a specific area, do don’t this at home kids) and the part of your brain that replaces it temporarily it’s art based, you gain a superpower

    Just to clarify, don’t do this at home, if you are lucky enough to get acquired savant syndrome (the version that can be gained after birth), which means you are lucky enough to damage a low importance repairable brain which has something to do with art and lucky to have a unused art section activated, you will get massive negative side effects that outweigh the new ability, which causes lots of people with acquired savant syndrome to think about committing suicide, so don’t do it, also your personality changes and normally centres around the ability

    Anyway back to my point, so brain damage has a low chance of making you have a new ability for art
    Now what if a spider bite caused the damage

    YOU CAN GET GOOD AT ART BY A SPIDER BITE AND WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AS A GENIUS

    However, don’t do it

    I’m autistic so I had a possibility to get savant syndrome (non-acquired) however I didn’t
    Born savant syndromes don’t get bad side effects (unless you count being autistic) other than having the ability as the ability may also be seen as a negative affect

    More bad news… even if you did get good by spider, I don’t think there is a thing called a ‘drawing spider’

  10. Ok so guys,i really tired of people having these great animations and drawings
    (Not literally)
    But i wanna learn how to draw myself without having to depending on other people to do stuff for you. Anyways what im trying to say is,i wanna learn how to draw like a pro,but slowly.
    Like if you are trying to do the same
    🙂
