Um yes hi. So, I have a question, and since I love your writing so much I thought'd I ask you. So um here goes, how do you have the courage to just share what you write for people? Like and just trust other people with your creation? <3
This is a great question, but it’s probably better posed to someone else to be honest (sorry! I’ll still answer as best I can!). Personally, I have never had any problem sharing what I write. I figure that if I have a headcanon that I love, and I write it in a way that I’m happy with, then there is bound to be at least one other person who will fall in love with it too. And if each thing I write were to only affect one other person, then that’d be enough.
I’ve never been the kind of person to worry about what other people think though, even in my real life, and I’m happy to be the weird one who everyone looks at with raised eyebrows and asks “what the fuck is she on??” SOOOOO if you have anxiety about stuff like that (understandable), then I’m not sure what to tell you besides…
I was talking to my dear friend @polish-ed-heavy-boots about what shiny Pokémon I have recently caught, and when she learned about my Bewear’s nickname she demanded I post it, so here it is. Meet Bearatrice.
How do you draw a closed snoot? Amd also how do you draw an open snoot from the front?
I draw closed snoots pretty much the same way as opened ones, as illustrated in this one tutorial i did a bit ago! Same goes for drawing opened mouths from the front.
for closed muzzles, I tend to do placement lines for where the base of the muzzle connects to the face (and also as a marker for where the bottom of the eyes are gonna go!) and a line down the center of the muzzle to help me place the nose and make the upper lip indent shape! This is something I honestly don’t do too much bc I mostly forget but it helps SO MUCH
end result from using said guidelines hfhfh
as for opened snoots, here’s a lil thing using the same formula as my first tutorial;
Firstly, I start out roughing out where I want everything to go! The purple line in the right image helps me place the top corners of the mouth, where i’ll be dragging the lines for the sides of the mouth in a sec. This is a good time to map out how you want your expression to go, since the corner of the mouth I find makes it easier to connect everything else as you’re going along.
After you get that sorted, drag the lines (blue lines) down from the corners (it’s perfectly fine if the lines don’t match up with the corners, it doesn’t have to be exact!), which are the rest of the mouth. Now is a good time to go in and tighten up/stretch the mouth shape to however it’ll benefit your character/style/expression. My sona has pretty round shapes, so I keep things rounded for her most of the time. (unless i’m exaggerating her expression, then things tend to get a little bit sharp and asymmetrical)
Annnnnnnd then you go in and start adding details! Teeth, tongue, etc. You can see I kinda shortened the lower jaw shape lines a bit after everything since I noticed the mouth was a bit too wide/sliding to the right.. Just so it aligns with the top part of the jaw a little easier!! this is pretty much how I do all my mouth/muzzle stuff, so I hope it helps a bit!
