Hi! Do you have any tips on drawing body figures? Especially the length of the legs? And do you have tips on drawing hands? Thanks!
Only way to learn figures is to look at them and draw them. I’ve taken figure drawing and anatomy for artist classes in addition to drawing a lot. Take them if you can! And I fuck up legs more than anything because I don’t draw them enough. Easy springboard though is searching for Andrew Loomis books.
Same with hands, though there are some fairly easy to describe formulas for hands so I drew up a couple rq
First of all, for probably 90% of the hand poses you’re gonna draw, think fingers like the petals on a pinwheel. They all curve the same degree, in relation to the previous.
Could you post a body tutorial? I'm struggling with proportions and getting everything like the head and body to tie together. :/
This one is my favourite, it contains everything you need to grasp basic anatomy. There are also stock artists and good ol’ posemaniacs and a few other sites that any artist will find helpful [x] [x] [x] [x] [x] [x] [x] (the last one is awesome, just sayin’)
so you want to draw a character with sharp teeth? that’s cool! you have a lot of options. like most things, how you draw fearsome teeth can be improved by looking at nature and i’m gonna show you how.
