This is tutorial for second grade, but anyone can learn from it of they find it usefull
Sorry for grammar and spelling mistakes, I noticed few myself but I'm too tired to fix them -___- I'm way too late with this anyway. So if something is really trobulesome to read I'll try to fix it some other time xD
Now, after taking a good and long look at every student gallery, I came to conclusion that, even through some are better at proportion and some not, everyone need to practice drawing proportions and anatomy So I was thinking of making two different assignments of this lesson and give them to each group of students.
I will update this comment once I consult with second teacher *JinkiMania and decide what should I give you as assignment, be patient please~
No, not at all, guidelines are awesome and super important, but it depends how you use them. In fact this whole drawing is done free hand using guide lines everywhere. If not using guidelines how the hell would you set up your drawing...
I made this like, 3 year ago, many of my opinion on this subject changed, but I can't see where I said that xD
Can you tell me which part specifically gave you that message? So I can help clear out misunderstanding.
Sorry if my reply is late again, I'm no longer using this account but I still log in occasionally to respond to messages and clear inbox xD
I guess its the first paragraph, This method of drawing is wrong and you make no progress or little progress over a long period of time, Well that's how I read it, So in a way drawing free hand is hard and slow and makes to many mistakes in my opinion.
I was referring there mostly on those who follow those mechanical step by step instructions blindly without bothering to understand what is it that they are drawing and that's why there barely any improvement occur. Because they are not learning physical world that surrounds them but they are studying someone else's vision of it
Perfect tutorial. =.= i was having so much butthurt trouble drawing girls, especially since im trying to make animation for my girlfriend, so I need to draw up a concept art of the main character whom would be her, and I made them look too manly and wide, but this tutorial was so perfect that, i managed to sketch out a nicely proportioned girl in my first attempt without references for poses.
Hi, I'm quite busy right now and will be for a while but I'll take into consideration your suggestion for another tutorial. However, I'm no longer active on this account, so if you wish you can stalk me on my other profile- *Yuushin7
this is a great tutorial, thank you so much for making it, even though i dont draw people at the moment i learned alot of good tricks, and thank you for the words at the end, that was something i needed to hear, i just need to remember to relax and not get all stressed about everything and its ok to doodle around, not everything has to be good every time, its kinda a wast of paper now that i realize, its ok to sketch things allot for fun and having it turn out like crap. X3
Well~ Every artist has his/her own preferences I personally find it easier to do lineart, some less demanding coloring techniques and final effects in Photoshop, for example something like this [link] and [link] And for more free painting style in Paint Tool SAI [link][link]
Paint Tool SAI is pretty much easy to understand, since unlike photoshop it doesn't have tone of options that can confuse beginner and is primary for drawing and painting
