NOW WITH SLIGHTLY LESS “BATMAN BEING BATMAN” RESULTS
So I noticed there was a glut of new hits on the old one, and I remembered I’d been wanting to make a bigger new one. This time, I’m also starting a tag #randraw for people who want to post and share their results.
don’t we all need to work on those things, haha.
i’m not sure if you’re asking me if i can make a tutorial (idk if i’m ready for that, haha), but i’ll get a bunch of tuts in my drafts and i’ll post them throughout the day so they wont clog the dashes. however, ill also post some general links to leave you to scroll through.
- my own ref tag! (add /chrono to the end if you want to see more general things)
- kelpls’ tutorials
- ProkoTV on YouTube
but most importantly of all, probably more than whatever these blogs or i can tell you:
- practise everyday
- study from not only life, but your favourite artists (emphasis on the plural!!!) too
- doodle ~researchingly throughout the day (if you can’t, take mental notes)
- experiment with everything you learn! even if it turns out badly.
My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).
What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.
MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.
This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.
For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!
Now go draw, babies!
Despite the surge in female protagonists in film and TV, the truth is women made up only 16% of employees on the top 250 films in 2013. Despite the depressing numbers, women are still making their mark.
Carrie Tupper wrote a fantastic two-part article on The Mary Sue called The History of Women in Animation (which you can read here and here) and I illustrated here some of the amazing ladies mentioned there.
Lotte is such a long time inspiration for me and my work I had to reblog.
Thank you Ladies for your amazing work <3
NOTE: this is no way the best or most common method of picking colour, it is simply what i’ve found very useful for my own personal use, and it works very well in my favour. i’m also not a native english speaker so there might show up some embarrassing spelling mistakes. if there’s any questions feel free to hit me up in my askbox!
okay I think this covers the basics of the way I do my lineart, hopefully it’ll be helpful enough! if something’s unclear don’t be afraid to shoot me an ask about it.
enjoy and dON’T GIVE UP it might get really frustrating at times with all the control z-ing and re-drawing lines but the more you do it, the quicker it’ll get to get them right the first time around and the better you’ll become at it so yes, good luck friends.
Folks welcomed the hand reference I posted, so here’s some foot reference.
As an artist you’ll draw A LOT of feet, especially feet that REST ON THE GROUND. Don’t be one of those artists who hides feet behind grass or mist all the time. Print these out and draw ‘em.
I included the knees because you’ll need to know how feet connect with legs; draw ‘em up to the knee.
