I've been trying to get my many heads in the game of making sequential art. But I feel like my comics lack a lot of punch and movement. Do you know any way I can fix or practice to improve this skill?
<p>um, heres some stuff from the top of my head. CHILL, and dont think too much while drawing. try to make it as enjoyable for yourself as possible, like try to experience the moment of drawing instead of thinking of the end results, do long sweeping motions with your entire arm,
draw the panel last, so youll give space to the movement. dont sketch. or if you sketch, think more about the fluidity and movement rather than the anatomy, fix glaring anatomy mistakes later. try mediums that let you concentrate on the strokes, like brush pens and inks. watch action movies and Gainax’s and Masaaki Yuasa’s anime and videos of people dancing, and read comics and look at artists that you think have the same kind of fluidity you want to achieve. also try drawing drunk or while high sometimes. <br/><br/> i personally just try to not think too much while drawing. when i start planning or drawing too slow, everything turns really stiff and gross immediately (i dont like most of the stuff i do for work for this reason because i have to spend so many hours digitally painting loool it looks so stiff) but yeah i hope this helps. im flattered you think i would have good advice for you haha</p>
