How do you draw so many expressions? You're art is amazing and I aspire to be an awesome artist like you
I’m still trying super hard to exaggerate expressions and stuff so I’m super glad you like them! ;o; I kinda got the inspiration from older cartoons where expressions are really pushed, and just really trying to capture an emotion in the face in general. Like sometimes I do tiny poorly drawn comics as a warmup or to express something and really trying to push expressions in those to emphasize the emotion has been really fun but difficult.
I think looking at actors and looking at the people around you when they express helps? Also if you have a mirror handy, you can use your own expressions as reference! Lots of animators have done this in the past, reminds me of this tweet I saw recently of Ken Harris using a mirror to help draw expressions.
(this is a really nice twitter account for animation content btw)
i wanted to do a long haired!younger victor for my warmup tonight, done in my own style. usually i try to stay more true to the anime style when i draw him, but thats really not working out for me so…! i think i’ll just do this instead from now on, i give up
those random dalish drawings you did are super nice! Are they ocs of yours?
Oh, thanks! Nope, they’re not full featured ocs or anything, just the result of my browsing my dalish inspiration board on pinterest and trying to piece together an interesting character design based on all the references i’ve put together. I do them as quick warmup sketches, to be honest.
I think the Dalish npcs we see in all the games all tend to look rather samey, since they’re limited to using the same body model/hairs as the player character so it’s a fun challenge to create something that is visually more diverse but also still recognizably dalish.
Some more Vivienne/Bull (do they have a ship name yet?) warmup sketches
before I got started on a few comic pages. Trying to get a feel for
drawing faster with looser lines, and it was fun to throw in some
grayscale as well. I love these two’s interactions and Bull calling
Vivienne ‘Kadan’ when he’s worried about her (or any time in general)
just makes me smile. The person who hurt Bull is in so much trouble
right now. I love drawing these two. <3
After MONTHS of trying, OH MY SWEET BABY JESUS, I finally drew an ATTRACTIVE, non-awkward, IDENTIFIABLE, drawing of Jane! I don’t know how, but I did! YEAHHHH! And I thought I was just doing warmup drawings!
for warmups sometimes i just scroll through my dash and draw like 4-5 random muses to try out diff styles and sometimes this is all in the same day or a week so the ones on the left are about a week old anyway, if i do another with diff muses ill post more next time maybe . anyway i hope u dont mind i drew your muses :o @askmissrin@askmissmiki@asklenny@askvfiower@askagaminerin ))
