tips on drawing

anonymous asked:

hey dude aa!! i really appreciate ur art (your style is just so stunning??) and i was wondering if u had any links/tips for studying art?? like hairlines and shading and anatomy/proportions and such.. Dont worry about answering tho lol . I hope u have a lovely day!! ;0

Thank you!! I was trying to find any pages I may have saved for tips, sadly I couldn’t find any. (There’s plenty on YouTube that have really helped me) But I decided to make some “tutorials” on things I’ve picked up. I’m not a professional artist so somethings may be off,, but these are things that have really helped me.

okay so I’ve seen a lot of artists,including myself, make this common mistake of coloring the palm of  a hand(and the sole of a foot) as the same color as the person’s skin tone.

but in fact ,palms and soles are a different color compare to our skin

this is due to the lack of Melanin on them

hope this helps!

Hi! I love your art. In particular your edges are really sharp, but still lineless (if that makes sense?). If it's not too much to ask, would you be willing to share some tips for achieving those edges on digital? Thank you, and have a nice day! :)

Here’s a few tips^

Also, not included in the pic: Make sure you’re not working on a small canvas.  For instance, 1000x1000 pixels will probably result in some unintentionally soft edges, because you won’t be able to zoom in to refine the painting.  I usually use 4000x4000, for reference.

quick proportion tips

- eyeballs are an eyeball width apart
- ears align with the top of your brows to the bottom of your nose, and are the center-point of a profile view
- lip corners line up to the center of each eye
- hands are roughly the size of your face
- feet are the same size as your forearm
- elbows are aligned with your belly-button
- your hands reach down mid-length of your thighs
- both upper and lower legs (individually) are roughly the same size as your torso 
(this is all rough estimates for proportion! feel free to add more to help others)

this got like 4 times longer than I anticipated, I’m really sorry orz It’s basic beginning stuff I guess, stuff that you must have seen everywhere already but I can’t begin to tell you how important it is, at least to me, to know what the hell that mass you’re drawing is. Even if I’m not the best at it (and even if I could use some anatomy studying lately coughcough), it’s something I’m PASSIONATE about and something I consider you have to do, to learn and absorb in order to draw people and be happy with it. Because in my case, once I kinda sorta got the hang of drawing bodies, I felt my hand free, relaxed. I felt happy as hell with what I started being able to draw and I enjoyed drawing bodies 210%


an anon on curious cat asked for some drawing tips! this is the kind of stuff that helped me learn how to draw these things so hopefully they can help someone else as well <3 please understand i am still learning myself so this info might not be as detailed as it could be!!

I was trying to answer an anon about my process for drawing hair and I realized I don’t have much of one.  What I do try to do, though, is create movement and an interesting shape.

Planes: Sections of hair that I draw like a wide noodle with a defined top and underside.  I use it to frame the face and create movement.

Volumes: Sections of hair that look kind of lumpy and 3D as opposed to the plane.  I use it on the sides and back of the head to give the illusion of weight.

I’m not quite happy with the way I color hair yet and a lot of my drawings are experimentation, so I’ll leave that for another time.  I hope this helped a little :)
