sometimes people leave you,
halfway through the wood.
others may deceive you,
you decide what’s good.
you decide alone.
but no one is alone.

Thank you! And well I have been trying to learn by myself about drawing people. I am making progress on some hings except the hair and shading. I have lots of struggle with it >~< What do you recommend me to do? Any tips? Have a great day!

Hello Anon!! I can honestly say, drawing hair is my LEAST favorite thing to do in a portrait! I think I’ve gotten better at it, but it’s still a struggle, so I’ll try to anwers as best as I can, considering I’m no pro at it :- )

 Now I’m going to assume you’re asking about graphite drawing, since it’s what i do most, so I’m going to talk about that in this answer. It is a bit different for my drawings on toned grey/tan paper because I can use white pastel for these. So here we go:

The most common mistake for drawing hair is wanting to draw each and every hair you see. As you can see in my first drawing I did when I got back to it (in 2014) this is exactly what i was trying to do (and badly, at that. I admit even then i knew i sucked at it so i didnt put all the effort lol)

Basically he has a bowl of spaghetti on his head.

So, after many tries, i sort of figured out that hair is it’s own entity and not just many tiny hair that you have to draw individually. the best way to illustrate what i mean is this nice video here.  If you understand that video and try it this way, you’re bound to improve your results. 

As a general tip, i found that making the dark area then erasing the pencil to create the highlights worked really well for me. wich is mainly what i did in this one i drew in 2015. I drew the dark areas with my 4B pencil, then just erased the graphite to create the lighter strands (and the wrinkles around the eye, the light stubble etc…)

to make fine, white lines, i use an electric eraser (made by sakura). Since it’s rotating (no need for back and forth motion to remove the graphite), you can basically use it like a pencil or brush, with one stroke to make a mark. I also use tombow’s Mono eraser for fine lines and cleaning up tiny areas. this video shows them quite well (start at 1:11 for the erasers demo). 

for this next one i did earlier this year, I tried a bit of different approach. I used graphite powder (with a soft-haired paintbrush) for the mid tones, erased using the electric eraser for the highlights, and went back with a Pentel Orenz mechanical pencil. this specific brand uses 0.2mm 2B leads (regular mechanical pencil uses 0.5mm) so I was able to darken the dark areas and keep everything really small. Since it’s a close up, the finer hairs had to be drawn, and this tiny leaded pencil was just perfect.

Well. There you go Nonnie! I hope this little post contained useful information for you (and for anyone else hanging around my blog :) ) Sorry if it was long, I’m always a bit chatty, but worry not, I shall tag accordingly ! 

I absolutely love badass ador(k)able characters.

I love it when a character is happy, friendly, cute and/or free of judgement, just going along with whatever strange things they encounter… but also capable of blasting everything into oblivion with the sheer power they possess. Characters, who can look genuinely nice and encouraging as if they were saying “Hey, let’s go and have fun! It doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like - we can do this, so let’s team up!” Triple points if they have a simple/fun/really friendly design. For star~ters~

gimme Bomberman and Rooies! Gimme Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee! Gimme Mario or adorkable characters like Luigi and (certain incarnations of) Link!

Gimme characters, who get really and noticeably serious about kicking arse, but can also be ridiculously cute, when the world lets them! Gimme folks, who can get really enthusiastic about small things or enjoy life and openly SHOW it. I love it as it shows that characters can have so many more facets than “is male and strong, so they HAVE to be a gruff, deadpan action hero by default”. (nothing against that type of character, mind you, but against that “they’re male, so they just have to be like this”-mindset)

Mario’s saving entire galaxies with a spring in his step. Bomberman’s one of the cutest robots around and here to protect the universe. Kirby’s an emotional, pure-hearted, floaty pink sphere thing, but fights eldritch abominations. And once you have seen any of them in action, none of this feels out of character.

A character can be joyful or innocent or emotional - even as an adult male - and STILL kick arse for a living, you know? Without feeling “weird” or “out of character”, that is. It works and honestly I enjoy seeing this kind of thing. It makes them more tangible as people and lets you know you’ll have a great time with them on your adventures, because they can just have genuine fun and be good company in general.
