sorry for my bad hand writing
The point I’m trying to drive home, is that draw things the way that best suits you. How-to-books had me all mixed up in my teen years, but then I decided to break the rules and do things my way.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
This just made my brain light up in a good way.
Reblogging as a counterpoint to the earlier “NOBODY CAN DRAW HANDS” post I reblogged XD
Some awesome leg tutorials done by n3m0s1s.
[From various sources]
WOW HEY THANKS ANON SWEETIE.
Alright, I will focus on the female body, since that’s what i love to draw.
Okay! First off, look at models a lot!! Even if real life is hard for you!! Look at diverse models. Models of all shapes, sizes, heights, structures, etc!
I’m still a doodler who is still developing, so my anatomy might be a bit ‘eehhhh,’ but I always recommend that you follow the “five/seven heads” canon of anatomy, and others.
Now, I would say the base for anybody I draw could be:
Yellow indicating areas where fleshyness can build up and shape your character, such as bosoms, booty, plump thighs, soft tumtums.
Also know the different shapes possible!
These are the ones I can name off the bat I remember from watching the Tyra Banks Show when it still aired, abahaha.
Let’s start with my favorite things: BOSOMS AND BUMS
Basically, where the fleshyness of the bosom and the bum are.
Bums and bosoms come on all shapes and sizes
I apologize for sketchiness, aha, BUT, my point is hopefully placed across. Be aware of natural movement and sagginess of some bodies !!
Now for mid torso and hips!! WHICH I ALSO LOVE LOVE
For this, we gotta look at the skeleton. And tbh, ever since I started taking my CTE Nursing class, it has helped me learn anatomy and drawing it better, since the skeleton model is right in front of my desk.
Also, sometimes, the pelvic bones and rib cage can be slightly different in sizes (like, my pelvis is slightly bigger than my rib cage ! ), and I like to play on that !! Haha, but that’s bc I like going for a more stylized look.
Wow, this tut is getting long, let me jump into arms and legs.
The general canon is that the elbow hits the waist line, and the hand reaches the mid-thigh. Fullness builds in the upper arm bc of muscle and fluff, same with the leg, however, the fluff or build is on the front and sides of the thighs, and the back and sides of the lower leg.
Now for this quickie, aha !!
Fluffiness builds in these areas, even in a slim and fit body, there is muscle or fluff papping out. Don’t be afraid to let the fluff or build pile on, and be wary of squish and spill.
Now for some personal examples, aha.
Hope it helped !! Sorry it’s so long, aaaack !!

WHAT IS THIS BOOK!?!

Gilgamesh: THE ULTIMATE BROMANCE
Give it here, now.
Sweet Fluffy Gods why is there not an audiobook version?
I need this book in my life
i will try to explain my best ok?? its not that great tho.
first of all you gotta have a your clean lineart in its own layer.
i create a new layer on top of the lineart one, and there’s this thing in SAI called “clipping group”, click that in the new layer.
and now it will color whatever is drawn in the layer underneath it, its pretty rad.
Aries- Grabs the nearest chainsaw and hacks that shit up
Taurus- Carefully carves the top off and bakes the seeds for a nice snack
Gemini- Comes up with 10,000 ideas, gets bored and executes none of them
Cancer- Isn’t allowed to use knives yet, angrily jabs at it with a spoon.
Leo- Stacks 3 pumpkins on top of one another and makes a giant pumpkin man
Virgo-Carves a traditional Jack-o-Lantern and places a candle inside
Libra- Rather than carve it, Libra paints it and repaints it every few days
Scorpio- Pulls out plans made in April, spends days in solitude making the perfect scary face
Sagittarius- “Accidentally” chops it in half, kicks it and throws it a the neighbors car
Capricorn- Has someone else do it for them, complains how much stress it caused them
Aquarius- Researches the entire background of pumpkin carving, decides to carve an eggplant because they’re under appreciated
Pisces – Carves it in early October, is upset when it rots before Halloween night
Homestucks where are you?
This needs to be a thing. Calling all Homestucks.
someone please illustrate this
This accurately portrays every single character omfg
WHEN THINGS GET ILLUSTRATED AND CITED PROPERLY AND I DON’T HAVE TO KILL ANYONE<3
the real meaning of halloween is these pictures
When I was trying to figure out paint tools sai I had a hard time finding helpful tutorials.
So I’ve decided to post some things I’ve discovered that were useful. (And maybe might be useful to you)
Here’s some tips, of course nothing professional, but things I’ve learned myself.
Hope it helps some of you guys. ovo
