AAAAALLRIGHT ASPIRING CONCEPT ARTISTS, ILLUSTRATORS, ANIMATORS, AND OR JUST ARTISTS IN GENERAL.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL EXERCISE I REALLY RECOMMEND YOU ALL DO.

In the red, we have a skeletal study—finding out where the bones or structure of the character would be. In blue we have the peices of the characters split into different shapes to make them easier to draw and remember. Green is mass shapes and masses. Purple is the line of action.

Guys, I have like. A bazillion times more understanding of the characters above than I had before. I completely recommend doing this: study their skeleton and then dominant shapes and masses. It will give you a better understanding of how your character moves and is held together.

The line of motion helps you make your character move in a more interesting fashion. It helps you see their movement and motion in a better light, and where there weight is being distributed.

And there you go.

Awesome exercise. 

Do it.

can you tell the exact point in time where I stopped trying to make this into a comprehensible tutorial

ahhh but there you go anon! I hope you find this tutorial useful ahah;; I find that observing real life (or just googling up faces and expressions) really help with understanding faces and how they do the thing. So keep on practicing!

POSES??? ctrl+click or cmd+click each image for readable sizes, or just click these handy links: one two three four

Once again stressing that this is how I do things, not how you should do things. I mean, you can if you want. But it’s entirely a personal thing, as art should be! Always look at other people’s art, as they will come up with poses you hadn’t even thought of and generally broaden your mind.

Here are some useful links:

  • pixelovely has photos of life drawing poses and a system that cycles through them like a real life drawing class! You can also pick whether you want just men or women, or just nude or clothed, or both.
  • posemaniacs has tons of 3D models in poses. They’re shown on the muscle layer of things so that you can see how the muscles work! All models can be rotated 360 degrees, and come in varying degrees of camera angles from top to bottom. They also have a fantastic hand viewer which has hands that can be rotated along all axes, although there’s a limited selection of poses and the anatomy of the hands themselves could use some work.
  • Some great stock providers on deviantArt include SenshiStock aaaand… I can’t find the others right now. I’ll edit this post when I do!
  • Here are some other good tutorials and references! one two

A couple people asked me how I vary my leaves and trees and honestly, it’s super easy! I’ve never made a tutorial/guide before so I kept this mega simple but I hope someone out there might find it useful at least!

Also, anyone can download the brushes I use for all my art on my tumblr page (: I only use around 5 so go nuts haha

Wow! Reblogging this for reference. I gotta start drawing more backgrounds.

pah! my skin palettes are no where near perfect. I wish. D:

I’m not sure if this would be of help, but here’s sort of a quick step-by-step guide of sorts. also my main brushes I use + their settings. I literally just block colors and shapes in with my “paint” brush, blend them around some, and color drop. that’s it…haha.
