there's a tutorial for everything

anonymous asked:

Hi! could you help me with something? I quit drawing for 2 years and now I want to draw again, but obviously my art skills are bad, could you please give me some tutorial/advices/character bases? anything can help seriously:(

I have a side blog where I reblog all the useful tumblr posts with art tutorials, speed paints, anatomy and references, animation, software, tips and etc. (It’s probably better to browse it on the phone, the theme I picked isn’t too good and I’m too lazy to change it) But here are some links that might help you:

Create characters through different shapes | Anatomy: back/arms/muscles (x x x x) | feet tag and legs post | hair | more references and tutorials | perspective angle references for people | just gerenal perspective tag, mostly for architecture and stuff | some tutorials | free art programs | THIS MASTER POST | photo references (SenshiStock on DA has SO MANY photos you can use as references!)

I’ve made some posts in my main blog as well, and uploaded some speed paints for my patrons on Patreon. Some books I can recommend: Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators, Framed Ink: Drawing and Composition for Visual Storytellers and The Art of Layout and Storyboarding. Those books might seem like they are too specific, but seriously, they can give you a ton of useful info!

Hope this post helps!
