this is my body

anonymous asked:

Hey there! Do you have any tips for drawing humans? I don't seem to get the faces quite right. Or any "special" poses. I just draw them over and over in the same poses with the same face and urgh.. it's so difficult. What did you do to get so good? Did you do any character studys or drew persons in random poses? What did you do?

creative use and study of references! the human body is like an insanely complicated machine. you’re not going to know how to build it unless you consider each part individually.

it takes practice to make dynamic poses actually give the feel you want

you can tell in 2013 the pose looks stiff and somewhat unnatural, even though the proportions are technically correct. it just doesn’t really hit the mark. in the piece i did last night, the proportions aren’t actually that superb, but it has a way stronger execution.

if you study how others do their work, it definitely helps, too. trying out their techniques to practice will help meld together what you’re already doing, and finding comfortable ways to do new techniques. 

do lots of figure drawing, but don’t pretend you know what you’re looking at! look at the human body as shapes, and translate the rough edges into the imperfect lines that they are

as far as Same Face Issue, this can be changed really easily! this can be fixed by focusing on: chin shape, hairline, and nose

i made a little example to show that with the same base, i can build chuck and the swaingels and still give them unique features

now just do that a million times over! i think last year i did around 500 pieces. you’ll feel crappy, because even after 20, you might not see huge leaps and bounds. you’ll start to grasp it better after time!

Finally starting to see them muscles come💪🏻 something I really struggle with is my upper body, it has always been the weakest part of me and is something I have been really self-conscious of my whole life, especially my arms. But slow progress is better than no progress! And loving your body for how it looks is the most important thing, not matter what shape or size you are✌🏼 P.s my brief description of why I went vegan is up on @vegansofaus page!
