Tutorial for anon on how to draw from references.

So when I draw from reference I always go in the order of; head, shoulders, waist, line of action and then filling out the body. When drawing from reference the main focus is just getting an understanding of proportions and angles of the body. When you’re practicing bodies it’s good to set a time limit for yourself so that you don’t fuss over minor details and can focus on getting the shape right. (The sketch in the video was 5 minutes)

Once you find a technique or method that works for you, then you can apply that to drawing from imagination  

This body was drawn without reference using the same technique that was in the video - 

A good website to use if you want to practice with reference is Pixelovely

Hey, so my friend is in this video and I think he did a really good job. It cracked me up and was really well made too, so give it a watch if you have 10 minutes spare? And possibly reblog, or go comment on the video if you enjoy it? :D


Some life drawrins I did from this awesome website: http://artists.pixelovely.com/

Class room mode starts ya off with very loose and gestural; from 30 seconds to more refined 30 mins.

I forget who recommended this site to me, but I’m payin’ it forward and recommending it to you other artists out there, particularly if you don’t have access to an actual classroom setting. Sadly, I don’t, so I started going here. It was so refreshing to get back into life drawing mode again.  :D

Hi, your art is amazing! I really want to learn to draw good. I already do some art but I believe it's not worth showing anyone. I want to improve. Do you have any tips on how to draw well? Any sites or books or videos that might help me improve? Thanks in advance and I hope you have a beautiful day!

OOw thanks for the compliments!! (๑・ω-)~♥”

About your question.. well, the first and more important advice I can give you, is to copy a lot. Copying is the first step to teach your hand to memorize shapes and styles! 
If your intent is to learn how to draw characters, you need to copy a lot of human bodies, for example you can use sites like these ones: 



they are really useful to start learning how bodies actually “work”! If you don’t feel ready enough for this, I can suggest you to start studying some static anathomy. There are a lot of resources on the internet where you can find material, like this useful Tumblr blog:


or just look for references on Pinterest:


You’ll surely improve faster than your exptectations if you exercise every day! You know, I think that the talent of drawing isn’t something that people really need to be born with. Your hand and your mind can be trained, it’s just a matter of will! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
