Anybody Good at Drawing

Anybody good with the pencil that dont mind helping out others? lol

Well Im getting back into it and I still cant draw people worth a damn. If im staring at a picture of someone, or looking at something I can draw it perfectly. Almost to the point of it looking like a tracing. That just doesnt feel right to me though.

So I go and try to draw my comic on my own. (note i have actual artists working on it, i just wanted to try something to show them an idea) However i fail miserbly. Obviously its entirely original so i have nothing to look at to base it on, no picture of batman or something to stare at and copy.

I do the whole stick figure, then circles and squares, then fill it in, then do the details and I cant do it properly. Its mainly the face...Given enough time ill get the muscles and other parts of the body done correctly to an extent, then the face looks like crap.

Another issue I have is proportions. I dont know how to get differnt views, how to make arms bigger smaller etc...I dont know how to give things depth correctly. Note I saw Stan Lee and Steve Ditko do the whole "draw lines of depth and field of vision" then you follow the lines and it gives it the right depth etc...But I want to know how you just do it on a given note.

Practice practice practice...I know. Ive been drawing for months now, and i cant get faces down lol, i need help in some way.

Just say this now because Ive gotten extremely interested in the game industry again and im thinking of switching from film to game design. Note ill still be a writer for either one on any given day, but i want to learn 3d really bad. and it starts by learning this.

Do you have any tips on how to draw things? Ive been practicing and im getting better, I can at least draw people without them looking like complete crap now. I still look at things though...I really badly want to get away from that. I just want to be able to pull out a peice of paper, think of something, then draw it.

I read tutorials and such all the time, Im getting better at drawing but i cant draw on my own. For example to draw a person ill need to look up a pose that i need then draw it, change it into what i need etc...I couldnt even draw my own comic for a while haha.

i have a tip...maybe you could my an action figure, and the pose it in various poses and try to recreate any angles you are having difficulty with, then you will be able to see what it should look like....

also what you could to is take pictures of it from different perspectives and really study how it works...

for angled heads you should draw a cube and uild the head withing it....and place guidelines in areas of importance....and follow tem around the cube....eyeline, base of the nose and mouth line etc

Do you use perspective lines for car design too? Ive been interested in that as well. I like watching guys like chip Foose do his drawings, its just awesome.
