I’ve been drawing “generic” anime for some years now, and it seems to look fine, but everybody I show my drawings to says I need to use templates & similr stuff. Is it bad not to use bases and templates?

Sorry, this is the drawing:

link broken, here's the image:


Using references is not a bad thing, you're actually learning how the thing looks.

The drawing is not bad, but it looks really weird overall. The eye is ultra detailed while the rest looks like a sketch, the side of the head looks really flat. Just try to use some references and learn perspective/3D, it'll help a lot.


You seem to be getting the hang of some things though; the lines on the eye really doesn't look bad, so you can do stuff.

Yeah, I see what you're saying about the eye -head comparison now. I'll continue practicing on that; I have an older college book I got from some store on art with many examples of perspective & crosshatching,etc. , so that'll help
