Why did you think you needed to measure yourself in Cheetos?

Only way to learn figures is to look at them and draw them. I’ve taken figure drawing and anatomy for artist classes in addition to drawing a lot. Take them if you can! And I fuck up legs more than anything because I don’t draw them enough. Easy springboard though is searching for Andrew Loomis books.
Same with hands, though there are some fairly easy to describe formulas for hands so I drew up a couple rq
First of all, for probably 90% of the hand poses you’re gonna draw, think fingers like the petals on a pinwheel. They all curve the same degree, in relation to the previous.
Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:
1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.
First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.
So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose. I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.
Scribble it down
start to put on features
put on more stuff
fix stuff again
erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring
Whole head is a gesture!
2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first. You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.
So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.
That’s the simplest explanation I got. Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!
By my intimacy with nature I find myself withdrawn from man. My interest in the sun and the moon, in the morning and the evening, compels me to solitude.

Before you go hammering early seasons of LOK with the Feminist Baton of Righteous Disapproval, take a moment to recall that Katara was the only recurring female character in ATLA for all of Book 1 (unless you count Azula’s intro at the end of the finale).
I ship the Doctor and Rose a bit, but the Doctor and River are my OTP. (I don’t really separate between different regenerations when it comes to shipping.)
nidotortle said:tips on drawing from different perspectives or trying to draw specific poses? I need help pls ;-;
when it comes to specific poses I try to first draw the most basic shapes and movement lines and then gradually go into more and more details, like so:
if you have difficulties with perspective, try drawing a perspective grid first:
it’s nothing different than tips from other artists, but I hope it helped a little ;u;
