DRAWING IDEAS FOR YOUR OC OR FAVORITE CHARACTERS

20 ways to draw a more consistent character
1. Draw the most common appearance for your character. This is your comfort zone. (Color)
2. Draw your character from the front, the side, and the back. This is something called a ‘turn sheet’. It’s a little boring to do, but will be very helpful to you in the future to have on hand.
3. Draw your character from the front, the side, and the back, but have them in nothing but their undies at most. This is to show off how your character is built. Drawing nothing but a straight pant-leg with no structure under it is no way to learn! (Skip this if your character doesn’t wear clothes)
4. Draw your character at three different ages than they currently are. (Must be noticeably different. No ages: 4, 5, and 6, etc.) Color one of them.
5. BANG! Your character just heard a loud noise right behind them. Draw their reaction!
6. Draw a bird’s eye view of your character.
7. Draw your character feeling very happy. Show body language.
8. Draw your character feeling very angry. Ditto.
9. Draw your character feeling very sad. You know the drill.
10. Draw your character with a different body type than they usually have. This helps you map distinguishing features onto different ‘templates’.
11. Draw your character if they were the opposite gender.
12. Draw your character as a different species than they normally are.
13. Somebody has just handed your character a live duck. Draw their reaction. Keep them in character.
14. Mary Sue the HELL out of your character. (Due to being asked “What is Mary Sue?” several times, I have included a link to the evil that is Sue: [Click if you dare.]
15. Draw your character lifting something heavy. (no magic allowed!)
16. Draw your character in an opposite role than they appear in your story/continuity.
17. Draw your character doing something they enjoy.
18. Draw your character doing something they do NOT enjoy.
19. Draw your character in a dynamic pose that is not a profile shot (from the side).
20. Draw the most common appearance for your character. Color it. (Pssst! See if it improved from the first one you drew. I bet it did!)


Using the following 100 themes as titles, draw 100 scenarios using  your original characters (or fan characters!). Use this as a chance to practice whatever you feel the least confident in, whether it be poses, coloring, anatomy, or backgrounds.

I suggest doing them out of order, because I know that people will often get stuck on the third or fourth one because it doesn’t interest them, and then they’ll never get any further.  Also, feel free to use speech bubbles. Sometimes it’s hard to express something without words.

41. His rough beard on shaved skin. + 45. Neck kisses will drive me crazy. + 46. Hands slowly explore all her curves. + 50. Feeling his body in the dark



She runs her fingertips up his body, dipping slowly over the curve of his hips and up along his chest, relishing in the way his body reacts to her touch: his breath hitching ever so slightly, his muscles trembling, his lips pressing a little harder against hers. They’d never managed to turn the lights on after they stumbled into their bedroom, and she’s not exactly sure how they’d gone from practically fumbling to tear each other out of their clothes to this – soft, slow touches and lingering kisses and heavy breaths rolling across skin, fingertips tracing over every dip and curve of their bodies as if trying to make up for the fact that they couldn’t quite see each other properly right now. Not that she could ever forget how perfect he looks, and with the lights off like this, she can feel everything so much more. It’s a little different, but she loves it, too.

He smooths one of his hands up her side, fingertips brushing over the spot on her ribs that always drives her crazy, making her suck in a breath. Then that hand cups her breast, and his other slides down her other side, dancing over her hip and down her thigh until he hooks his fingers under the bend of her knee, spreading her a little wider and pressing their bodies flushed together. She sucks in another gasp and digs her nails into the muscle of his arms to pull him close, as close as physically possible. He slides his lips from hers, skims them down her jaw and nips just barely at the skin of her throat. She moans.

“So beautiful,” he murmurs against the column of her neck, pressing a wet kiss there. She makes this little noise and arches her back, curving her body even more against his. She can feel his length brush against her slick folds with each little movement and it’s making her body tingle all over again. He kisses her neck once, twice, three more times, and she breathes his name and holds onto him even tighter, her heart skipping in her chest. “How’d I get so lucky?”

“Should be me asking that,” she says, voice soft. He shakes his head, dips it lower to brush his lips down the curve of her collarbone, spreading her legs a little wider. She lets out a sharp, hot breath, the anticipation coiling tighter in her stomach as he moves lower, slower, down her body, kissing every inch of skin as he goes. She grips onto his shoulders until he’s settled between her legs, and then she moves her hands to grip the sheets, peering down at him to find that stupid (perfect) smile on his face as he meets her eyes. He dips his head, pressing a wet kiss to the inside of her thigh, and she gnaws her lower lip at the sensation of his beard brushing against her skin. He hasn’t bothered to shave ever since they’d been sent away for some much needed time off, a luxury they weren’t quite sure had existed until they’d found themselves in a beach house with not a care in the world but each other.

It’s perfect.

He rolls his tongue, passing it gently through her folds, slowly, stopping just short of her bundle of nerves and making her whole body curve off of the bed as her fingers tug on the sheet and her moan echoes through the room.

“Definitely should be me asking that.”

His breath is warm between her legs as he chuckles, making her tingle, and then he takes another slow lick, this time flicking his tongue against her clit and drawing this sound from the back of her throat. Then he presses his tongue into her and she moans his name, rolls her hips up before she can quite stop herself, but he’s prepared, of course. He knows her body like the back of his hand, knows her like the back of his hand, and it’s a thought that had once terrified her. Not anymore. Not with Steve, and definitely not if it means that she gets to have this – gets to have him take his time, gets to have him know exactly what she needs to make her come apart at the seams so that he can take his time unraveling her until a shaking mess, all because of him. There’s not one part that she doesn’t love about how well he knows her, even when he works her up and leaves her on edge, over and over and over again, for hours, practically, because he knows that she can take it. He knows that as much as it frustrates her sometimes, she always loves it.

Steve,” she moans, voice loud, echoing in the dark as she rolls her hips a little faster against his tongue. Her eyelids flutter open and she tips her head down to peer at him through the dark, his face barely outlines by the moonlight that’s coming in through the window. He looks so caught up in what he’s doing, so caught up in her like he could never get enough, like he could spend all night between her legs, and her heart thumps in her chest.

She watches as he slides his hand up her thigh, teasing her skin for a moment and making her whole body shudder. She feels him smirk, and then he brings his hand between her legs and presses two fingers into her slowly, closing his lips and sucking lightly over her bundle of nerves, and she swears that the soft grunt he makes almost sends her right over that edge. “Oh,” she breathes. He curls his fingers, pulling out slowly and pressing in just so to make her hips snap up and her neck arch as she presses it harder into the pillow. “Oh!”

“Close?” he asks, even though he can tell. She knows he can.

She moans and nods, moves one of her hands to push her fingers into his hair and tug him even closer.

He rolls his tongue against her nerves once, twice, then licks all the way through her folds, curling his fingers, and her thighs trembling around his head as he lazily pushes her right on that edge. She’s close – so, so close – and then he pulls his mouth off of her, slides his fingers out and turns his head to kiss her wrist when she whimpers and grips his hair even tighter. Her eyelids flutter open to find him smiling again, pure adoration in his expression.

He moves himself back up her body, sliding his hands up her sides as he settles between her legs, length brushing against her slick, sensitive heat. Her body jolts, but he soothes her with a kiss.

“Do you trust me?” he asks, barely above a whisper.

“With my life.”

He smiles against her lips, kissing her against as he angles his hips and starts pressing into her slowly, and her lips part in a moan as she digs her nails into his back, trying to pull him as close to her as possible as he fills her completely.

Absolutely perfect.
