electronicpencil asked you:
do you have any tips with drawing tied back hair?
There you go! Don’t be too neat when drawing hair, they should run wilddd
- Dramatic religious shifts in <50 years
- Arbitrary returns to Roman/Greek systems
- Worlds with one continent
- Arbitrary homophobia
- Heterogeneous technologically-limited rural areas
- Worlds with one religion/method of worship
- Skin color as the only means of differentiation
important for any artist
Like this is legitimately interesting and I’m not trying to make a point but honestly curious- why do artists apparently draw women as male torsos + breasts??0
because apart from amount of breast tissue, all humans have the same chest anatomy. If you ever have the opportunity to look at cadavers, without skin and fat we’re all basically identical.
Someone requested a hand tutorial, so I rambled. I didn’t even get to everything I would like to, so here is a part!
I used to draw people according to head size (average human is anything from six to eight heads with comic book heroes around what… ten or eleven heads in height) buuut that’s too much to think about.
These days I organize all bodies into four parts that I can elongate, scale up, or scale down, keeping in rule of quarters. Cambiaso figures! It’s legit for reals.
My figs kinda suck but whatevs. I need a post that makes me sound almost smart about… things.
A simple PSA, lest your tail-sporting character look like they’re walking around with a really long poop hanging out of their pants.
That doesn’t look right though. Unless the tail your drawing isn’t a continuation of the spine (which a tail is by definition) it wouldn’t be that high… your tail bone, the sacral and coccygeal plexus sections of the spine, do in fact go down the crack. Having it that high would be anatomically incorrect…
Sorry this is a little messy, I hope it illustrates why the way people tend to draw tails is not wrong.
if you want to see tails coming out of buttholes I can dredge up some art of that, but the tail as drawn here isn’t it.
I’m finding myself increasingly adoring of plate armour. The amount of skill it takes to make something that both protects you from weapons while being flexible and mobile enough to move comfortably is something to be appreciated. Personally, if I was a warrior, I doubt I’d wear anything beyond grieves and gauntlets for the sake of maximum mobility and quietness but I still want a suit.
Tasty reference photos!
