so i'm currently trying to learn perspective, but all the drawings i make of blocks, boxes, etc. are always looking distorted/warped. is there any tutorial or something that could help me with this?

It sounds like you have your vanishing points too close together, which causes the warped look. A good rule of thumb is to atleast have one vanishing point out of the field of view (the picture). 

There are tons of perspective books cheap that I highly recommend reading, but you can start out with Fox-orian’s tutorial.

a whole bunch of artwork advice


ALRIGHT, here’s a post I’ve been meaning to make for quite a while. Ahead is just a bunch of tips and advice that I’ve picked up over time. I’m no professional and I still have a ton to learn, but I hope you can benefit from this regardless!

also, sorry for the formality of the fancy graphics, there are some cool people who know how to make things look organized without using these types of things but sadly i am not one of them.

Often, I’ll hear an artist say something like, “I want to draw (insert subject here), but I don’t know how to draw girls!” 

Never be deterred from drawing something because you don’t know how to draw it. If you don’t know how to draw a girl, look up some references, and start learning how to draw girls. You’re not going to learn anything by sitting around and saying you want to draw something but you can’t. If you only draw things you are comfortable with drawing, you won’t grow as an artist. 

Challenge yourself! Draw something you’ve never drawn before. Sure, the first time it’s going to probably not be very good. But then try it again. And again. Remember, there is no where to go but up, so as long as you practice you will only get better at it. 

(the rest under the cut!)

How to Draw the Head from Extreme Angles

In this tutorial I draw the head from extreme angles, which are frequently ignored by most artists. The Loomis method is a great tool to solve the difficult angles.
