I'm kinda ashamed to ask this, but could you make a tutorial on how to draw hands? ;A;
omg dont be ashamed at all!! Hands are generally tough to get used to, lots of artists struggle with it! so dont be ashamed i feel you.
and I actually have made a hand anatomy guide before in fact! If you want to get better at drawing hands I def recommend you learn the basic anatomy first. Please check out the ones I made, I try to make it simple and easy to understand:
There’s my guide to the anatomy, but here’s some more tips that I’ve noted to myself that I’d like to include
First off, I’d like to just note on the fingers: if you pay close attention to your own hand, you may notice the fingers are ever ever so slightly curved inward. It’s a very subtle detail, but I noticed that, despite how slight it is, it can make a hand look more lively, and less stiff.
Second, the “M” on the palm! Your hand moves in many ways, and because it does it creates creases in your hand. The most prominent creases appear to make an M shape; this is handy to remember for what I’m going to talk about next. (It also could be a “W” I guess, or to be more specific a “ )X( “; just think of it in whatever way helps you remember!)
SO now that you see the M, draw your hand as a basic blocked shape and add your details. As you do, you can see that the M divides the palm into four basic parts!
When the hand moves, parts A, B, or C of the palm, alone or in different combos, will create the general poses that the hands do normally. These parts are the parts that move, with D being stationary, no matter what!
Here’s a chart of all the possible combos. Once you have down what part of the hand moves for a certain pose, you can change up the fingers and tweak it a bit to do what you need to make it more specific!
This is simply my method of drawing hands. God knows there are hundreds of tutorials out there by other artists, but personally, this way helps me the best (after learning the anatomy first).
This way I can divide the hand and combine the parts in any such way I need!
Hands take a lot of effort to grapple, and you need to practice them a lot, especially foreshortening of the hand; that’s really something you need to learn through your own studies. Look at your own hands, draw hands from life, from magazines, shows, comics; just draw hands! You’ll eventually figure out a method that works best for you. So to get better at drawing hands; draw hands!! And don’t stress over it, have fun with it!
Cassian and Rhys taking a cheeky post-training selfie
i referenced their faces from two models, Vito Basso for Cassian and Toni Mahfud for Rhys. Also couldn’t be asked to work their wings into this, far too complicated and i’d have to moved their poses around and ughhh no
Oh boy, I struggle with that too tbh! What I do is look at references and often go for a feeling like “this looks nice” and be my own critique.
I don’t do this that often anymore but you can try to decompose in geometric shapes/basic lines some poses you find interesting (either be in the internet or magazines~) what I think helps the most it’s the movement lines which, I drew red in these examples~~
Proportions may be the basics but those can be different for each drawing style, still I do recommend to study some anatomy and practice a lot!! Try to start with something simple and not to complicated like some torso pics and don’t be afraid to look at references or to do mistakes, we all are learning so it’s totally ok!
Here more stuff and as you may notice, not all of them have the same proportions but somehow they look “proportional” and since I’m still not confident enough in complicated poses, these are some simple ones :3
Also you can try simple skeletons with just circles and lines, then you can start building the pose from that.
Hope this helps you! I’m not that good explaining things
DANN FDDN PHI; in toms's vlog at the beach TAKING PHOTOS OF EACHTOHER CAN'T BREATH ENRJWHFTJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
listen bitch.. this is the most intimate thing i have ever SEEN ! this is behind the scenes of daniel howell and his personal photographer bf.. dan was POSING and moving his head from side to side like a fucking model while phil was jus out there capturing his best angles with a beautiful sunset over the beach in the background.. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE INTIMATE MOMENT SHARED BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE WHO MEAN THE WORLD TO EACH OTHER WHAT THE FUCK
“Y/N?” A knock at the door accompanies the voice that just spoke, bringing a smile to your face. It’s a welcome distraction from staring at the wall, which you’ve been doing for four hours straight. There’s not much to do when you’re not allowed out of your bed. “Are you awake?”
“Come in,” you call back, propping yourself up against a few pillows. It takes some effort and your body rebels against the movement, but you grit your teeth and swallow back your groans. All the aches and pain are worth it. They prove that you’re okay. That you, unlike Antoine, are still alive.
It’s said every move and pose in the Degas scene in “Phantom of the Opera” was inspired by Edgar Degas, through his sketches, paintings and sculptures. I have yet to sit down and find a match to every single pose in photos. But what I can say is that it’s easy enough to find a corresponding artwork to the stage photos in existence. Here’s some of them.
Gillian Lynne made the choreography for “Phantom of the Opera”.
May I present to you: Jensen “I Hate Cats” Ackles and Misha “My True Form Is an *Actual* Cat” Collins
So I’m reposting this image on my art blog because it’s buried on a blog I no longer use, and this image deserves to see the light of the sun again.
This was from Chicon 2015. There’s a pretty funny story that goes with it.
My friend and I came up with the idea to ask them to wear cat ears.
(Here I am, trying to push the blame off on her… let’s be real: this was MY idea.)
Anyway, we giggled at the thought of asking them to wear the cat ears and play with a ball of yarn because, I guess, we’re bad people? It was funny talking about it. It was funny planning it.
But then, when you’re standing in line holding two headbands with cat ears clipped to them and clutching a tangled ball of yarn and slowly approaching two of the most beautiful men you’ve ever seen, it maybe doesn’t sound as funny anymore. Because you’re going to have to look these men, who you are suddenly TERRIFIED of, right in their BEAUTIFUL GODDAMN EYES and ask them to do something VERY silly.
My friend and I planned our strategy while waiting in line. Everyone says that the photo ops go SO FUCKING FAST. Well, they’re not lying. We knew we wouldn’t have a ton of time to explain what we wanted them to do. My friend asked me if we were actually going to do this. It wasn’t too late for us to take our own ears off and stash the pairs we brought for Jensen and Misha and just ask for hug instead. But no, I had bought those damn rainbow cat ears, and I had this image in my head, and I was all in at that point. We agreed that she would hold Jensen’s pair and go straight to him and explain, and I would hold Misha’s pair and the yarn, and do the same for him.
It was finally our turn. I made a beeline for Misha, holding out the ears in offering. His eyes zeroed in on the headband and he gave a bemused smile.
“CanyoupleaseputtheseonMishapleasethankyou!” I managed to squeak out. Misha smiled and took the headband and put it on, and the moment those ears touched his head he got this haughty little look on his face. His back arched just a little bit. I swear, in that moment, that man became a fucking cat. He somehow just casually embodied the collective universal feline energy, and it was instantaneous.
I glanced over at my friend, and she’d clearly asked Jensen the same thing, because he took the headband, and with the BIGGEST, MOST EXAGGERATED long-suffering sigh and a massive eye roll, he put the ears on his head. He looked fucking adorable. And grumpy. He literally WAS a grumpy cat.
We moved in to pose, and I remembered the yarn. I held it out at them, babbling something like, “Canyouguys, justlike, playwiththeyarntogetherTHANKYOUSO MUCHOHGODOHGODOHGOD”. Misha grabbed the yarn and held it out to Jensen, who gave another eye roll. I stepped back, unable to do anything other than SQEE internally. And then…click. It was done.
They took their headbands off and handed them back to us. Misha fussed with his hair. Jensen was actually smiling, but in a very sassy, y’all are weird and I don’t understand you and I think there is actually something wrong with you kind of way.
My friend and I thanked them profusely, and we started walking away, dazed and euphoric.
We must have gotten about five feet away when we both heard Jensen call out, “I FUCKING HATE CATS!” We looked over our shoulders, and Jensen and Misha cracking up was the last thing we saw as we were ushered out of the room.
So yeah. That’s the story of how Misha is apparently an avatar of sacred feline grace, and Jensen just really fucking hates cats.
And now this image exists.
You’re welcome, internet.
Also, I’ve recently started using this as a meme background for my “Quotes Without Context” on my meme page.
The quote that inspired me to use this image?
“I’d rather be watching the news with my cat.”
If anyone is interested in were I got the ears, they were purchased from PricelessCompanions on Etsy. They are awesome.
This was inspired by a headcanon that I can’t find but I think I read on @melemillion’s tumblr (Correct me if I’m wrong?) that Bakugo joins Sero for yoga sometimes. And I could so see this as something they’d do together in a BakuSero scenario.
I was in yoga class, and I really suck at the whole clearing my mind part. I generally just try to think of relaxing things instead. So when I couldn’t stop thinking stressful thoughts about the latest BNHA chapter, I ended up thinking about relaxing BNHA headcanons instead lol.
Lapidot hc: when lapis feels Extra Mischievous, she starts moving/posing peridots alien plush while peridot is distracted. Half the time pdot doesn't even notice, but sometimes it's placed in the perfect spot to jumpscare her. She has a good 10 seconds to wonder if it's alive before lapis lets out a little snort.
