research drawing

Hi!  I figured out a shortcut for perspective with the pen tool (and a quick instruction on how to draw straight lines) in Photoshop.

As happy as I am to see people gain the confidence to try out backgrounds, I should mention that it takes more than a trick to draw good BGs.  I urge you all to try to learn it properly through research and draw from observation.  Thomas Romain has a good batch of incredibly detailed, in-depth look into perspective on his twitter.  I also learned at lot from Perspective!  For Comic Book Artist by David Chelsea, it really is a must have for all types of BG work.  Work hard and good luck!

"You! Can't you see that -- in stooping to your enemy's level -- you're being made over in his image -- that you're becoming the very thing you loathe? " - Captain America #275, Steve Rogers defends neo-Nazi spokesman from being attacked by protestors while making a speech.

Yeah the issue written by dudes who weren’t even born until long after the end of WW2 totally overrides the pretty damn clear stance of Captain America’s co-creator.

I mean, in case we’re skipping over the above link, here’s a helpful quote: 

“When the German spy is killed at the end of the origin chapter, Cap nonchalantly remarked, “A fate he well deserved”– no remorse, no questioning.”

How about another?

In the Red Skull’s first appearance, after he is unmasked and defeated, the Skull makes one last desperate attempt at escape and Bucky tries to stop him. While Cap stood motionless, the Skull rolls over on a hypodermic filled with poison and dies. Bucky gets up and looks at Cap incredulously and asks, “But you saw it all–why didn’t you stop him from killing himself?” To which Cap casually replied, “I’m not talking Bucky”

I mean, Jack Kirby really, really hated Nazis. Don’t believe me? How about Stan Sakai?

But sure, Cap would get squeamish at punching Nazis. A+ cherrypicking, have an Iron Cross.

The first time Nishinoya asked him out, Asahi’s insecurity made him question why somebody so optimistic would want somebody like him. Nishinoya decided to take this opportunity to help Asahi understand his reasons before he made his second attempt.

Asahi kept finding new notes long after they started dating and kept every single one as a reminder.

yo!! I was just wondering;;; if you had any tips on drawing dudes!! I have a beefy boy of mine I've been dying to draw a full body of but I can't seem to get it right!! if you don't have any that's ok!

Well, step one is to have way too many pictures of just men, random men, sometimes half nude, too many to the point where you should be mildly concerned. 

Seriously though, lots of references. Men have an incredible amount of variation, in terms of body type, so really search around for types you like, or that fit your character. 

The main difference between an “average” body type, and more heavy set one is how solid it looks. This includes eliminating any sense of structural fragility, broadening it, and just messing around with how fat plays with the body. 

And when thinking about muscular bodies, consider which areas are more defined than others, how much weight is on the body, etc. For a more stocky muscular type, keep it round. 

So when I’m drawing any sort of guy, there’s a list of what I normally keep in mind. But definitely look around, see which body types strike your fancy more than others. Play around with it! And thanks, hope that helps! 💙

Decided to go ahead and post my contribution to the SPN artbook. It feels a bit surreal to be posting something that’s months old.

also like, there were Instagram updates during Noora’s hiatus as well – Jonas posted a picture on Instagram a day before Noora’s break ended, Chris posted pictures before the break ended. honestlyyyyy!
