Hey friends!

Sorry for the late TUTOR TUESDAY, but here it is! Today is on clothing folds and was a recommendation from @kitemist, thanks! If you have any recommendations you’d like to see send ‘em in here or my personal! Hopefully I can expand on clothes more soon! Keep practicing, have fun, and I’ll see you next week!

cat face tutorial i guess??

I can try!!! my faces are actually pretty basic/usually follow the same model so this isn’t exactly revolutionary lol  

I always start with the muzzle first no matter the angle, it offers a good starting point and i can judge where the rest of the proportions go from there. (for some reason the video cut out the last bit but i redrew the ears lol). I try to sketch fast so i can get the initial idea/concept out before going back in and doing revisions (this was done in like 6min)

my goal isn’t to recreate the original photo perfectly - the reference photo is there so i can use it as a guide for my proportions 


Here are some general proportion rules/guides for drawing more stylized. I always use the vertical face line to align my nose and mouth. 

thats pretty much it! make sure to avoid having the same face syndrome by switching up your features - eye shape, fur length, cheekbones, nose etc. i tend to favor slanted eyes and triangular faces and short fur!! have fun experimenting

How do you draw hands? Like I think i did it once years many years ago but I can't seem to figure it out. Don't worry if you don't get to this request I don't mind ^~^ You're art is super cool amazing and I love it <3

Thank you so much!!  <3 

I’ve studied lots of tutorials and videos, so definitely look for those and draw alongside the videos whenever possible. 

Also, back when I was in high school and college, to keep myself awake I’d doodle a lot.  I’d end up drawing my left hand because it was just right there.  As a result, there were a lot of drawings of my left hand all over my notes.  XD  Anyway, I got quite a bit of of practice that way.

Here’s a hand tutorial by Kienan Lafferty, one of my favorite tutorial guys on YouTube because he talks in a very basic way without sounding like he’s talking down to you.

Here’s a quick gif I made of my own process.  I usually start with the basic shape of the palm and work my way outwards.  I use a reference if needed.  I’m still far from perfect but I make it a point to not try to hide hands behind objects or behind characters’ backs to force myself to learn to draw them better.

sinister-violinist  asked:

will you teach me the art of the lined-eye, oh Great Master? (long story short, i tried to day and it failed. so bad. the eyeliner didn't even look like eyeliner- i looked like a raccoon)

oh, man. it’s way easier to show someone how to do eyeliner than to tell them, but… i can try. this is gonna be long, i’m gonna try to make it as thorough as i can. 

first of all, don’t be afraid to mess up. seriously, that perfect wing™ takes practice… no one’s just born knowing how to do it (except shiro). i’ve been doing it for years and i like to think i’m pretty good at it, but if you all saw the amount of q-tips and makeup wipes i go through to make it perfect… you’d lose your faith in me. lol

anyway, if you’re learning, i find pencils are the easier to use. you’re less likely to make the line bumpy, because it’s a softer line in the first place, but if you try to do a wing you’ll probably need a q-tip to sharpen the end. gel is a bit trickier because you need to use a brush, but it’s wayyyyy easier to make a wing or a bolder look. liquid pens are the easiest of the liquid variation but i hate them because they dry out so easily, while liquid dip liners are definitely the hardest to use, but overall (in my opinion) are the best ones to use if you want that really sharp perfect look. 

okay so actually doing it… everyone has their own way, but the tip we usually give clients is to put the pencil/brush sideways on your lash line (rather than straight on) so that it’s laying flat on your eyelashes. it makes it WAY easier, trust me. kinda like this: 

then, instead of drawing one, continuous line (NEVER do that in makeup– you’re just screwing yourself over) do small, thin strokes across the lashline. you can make it thicker if you want, i just find it’s easier to start with a thin line, then build it from there. and make sure it’s right on top of the lashes– no one wants that weird strip of eyelid between the liner and lashes.

if it makes it easier you can shut your eye, but try not to tug too hard on the skin when you hold it taught (the skin around your eye is really delicate, and you’re just harming it by doing that).

for the wing, take the flat of the brush/pencil and press it to the corner of your eye and up, as if continuing your waterline. like this:

then fill it in!

remember it’s okay to fuck it up. q-tips exist for a reason. (another tip is take a clean angled liner brush, dip it in a waterproof makeup remover, and remove/fix smudges like that!) 

i hope this helps!! this is generally how we teach it to clients, but everyone kinda has their own way of doing it, you just have to practice :D

RIGS 2 

Going over auto patches , rigging an arm and changing cells on your elements. Not to mention a little tease on how to use the overlay layer. 

This was done in toonboom harmony so I apologize if some people came here looking for how to rig in other toonboom products.

Hope this helps feel free to ask me any questions or let me know if you would like something clarified !

anonymous asked:

when you draw how do you make your lines neat? mine always look really wobbly and weird

I explained it a bit in my hand tutorial, here –>

I use VERY fine brushes (no larger than 3p for lines) and draw them very fast. Ctrl + Z is your best friend. Try not to draw over existing lines to get something right, just start the original line over. FAST! Using a piece of paper or a tissue under your hand on the tablet helps your hand glide easier and can help too. 

As you can see too, I don’t use line weight; that just fits my particular style (I like my lines to look very delicate). This makes the ‘broken line’ technique possible in my case, but if you do use a lot of line weight in your work this probably isn’t good for you. 

Zoom in close, work fast, use ctrl + z. I hope that helps!
