Hi i am new to Tumblr and your drawings are amazing do you have an tips on Anatomy i really suck at it and i wish to get better. Thank you.<3

HI! THANK YOU but are you asking me, a person who cries every time they have to do a full body, for anatomy tips?? 

well…,,, i’m not sure if i’m the right person to help you with that (i'n not even sure if i can!), but insted i’ll tell you what i do to improve the anatomy of my drawings!

the most predictable and common advice is: use references!!! watching and trying to imitate the reference picture helps you understand and memorize the way things work. i’ve always wanted the characters on my drawings to be more expressive so i’ll tell how i use references to help me practise this.. let’s go! 

we’ll take these two photos as an example:

source: (x), (x)

so first of all i draw basically the same thing. i don’t aim for realistic style, so just understanding the pose works for me. i guess you can trace the image, too, but i really prefer redrawing. anyway! now i have something like this:

so what i do with these is try to change the pose just a little bit to make it look more… action-y. definetly no tracing here! draw just by looking at your fisrt one and the original reference! for example with the first picture: you can bend the body forward or backwards:

so it looks like something this:

  and the second one:

aaaaand that’s about it.. you’re absolutely right to look for art tips!! there are lots of them done by amazing artists who know what they’re doing! many of the tips i found iver the years helped me so much, but not everything worked for me, some things i kinda had to figure out myself. this one might o be useful for you BUT the best thing to do to improve any aspect of your art is practice!! if something is hard, good. do it anyway. let it be crappy for the first time, for the second time, for the tenth time, it’s okay.  eventually you’ll get it, that’s for sure!
