Wooo. Haven't done a reference sheet in a while. I figure that's a contributing factor to my never finishing a project--I have no idea who the characters really are or how they look.

Name: Juniper Winston.
Age: 22.
Height: 5'8".
Fashion/Style: Neon Sign/Dressed in the Dark.
Likes: Music, having a good time, bugging uptight people.
Dislikes: Consequences, being wrong, conformity.
Personality Quirky nonconformist; comparable to, for example, that snot-nosed brat in your neighborhood who followed you around poking your shoulder all day.
Misc.: Prides herself on being as strange as possible. Will stay up all night researching a topic just so she can win an argument with you about it. She was subject to a lot of bullying throughout her school years because she was the adopted child of a gay couple. Used to be very demure and mousy. Lends a hand to her uncle (an art teacher at the local college) by acting as a model for anatomy studies. She's hard to get along with for long periods of time, but if you can manage to do it, she's a very loyal friend.

Oh hey, churning out one reference sheet a day. Not bad. :iconnotbadplz:

Name: Norah Williams.
Age: 20.
Height: 5'5".
Fashion/Style: Socially Awkward Nerd/I Spend Too Much Time In Comic Book Stores.
Likes: Comic books, bad 70s-80s action movies.
Dislikes: Socializing, leaving the house without good reason, being interrupted.
Personality Deadpan cynical commenter with more than a dash of obscure comic references; comparable to, for example, that weird girl in the back of the class that didn't talk to anyone.
Misc.: Works at a comic book store, conveniently enough. She managed to bully the manager into hiring her by utterly obliterating him in a test of knowledge in their desired medium. She's convinced that she'll draw a comic that will be published one day. Unfortunately, she can't draw for the life of her and is too obsessed with her delusions of grandeur to admit it. Very rarely seen in the "real world" unless heavily coerced. Her parents have given up on ever having any grandchildren. Orders a lot of weird merchandise online that nobody ever gets to see. Has a secret collection of shoujo and boy's love comics hidden somewhere that everybody knows about but doesn't dare look for. Often suffers from long bouts of depression and bitter muttering when her comics are turned down immediately by publishers.

Name: Myles Kent.
Age: 21.
Height: 6'2".
Fashion/Style: Casual Friday All Day Every Day/One Of Us Has To Be The Normal One Here, Right?
Likes: Books, relaxing.
Dislikes: Bad movie adaptations, ignorant people, excessive work.
Personality Intelligent and relaxed; comparable to, for example, that guy you saw at that party that one time. You don't know him, but he seems pretty cool.
Misc.: Moved away from London halfway through high school. He and Kyle became friends when he transferred into his high school. Their friendship is well-balanced; that is to say, he keeps Kyle in line most of the time. Some say they have a rather... ambiguous relationship. Owns an extensive library of mystery and thriller novels. He's one of those people who are more attractive when they're upset with you than when they're smiling.

I am still learning myself, but this should help others see how some facial expressions are shown in anime characters. I am going to be going some additional emotions soon.

Thank you :iconsenshistock: for the stock photo used in this tutorial!

This is more or less how I learned to draw things. People say you can't learn from tracing... but I feel like that's a misunderstanding bred from a combination of close-minded education and people not knowing how to learn from tracing. This might work for you. This might not work for you. But in a way, you have to treat this like studying rather than plain drawing. Either way, I hope it helps someone somewhere.

This method is best used with a bit of math. measure out how long certain body parts are according to the size of the head from chin to the top of the head. Approximations are totally okay. This is also a really general guide. You can vary it to make it more detailed by continuing to split what you have already split into halves into even more halves. There does come to a point where there's no point in splitting it even further though.

This method does not work very well if you only do it once or twice. Do it lots and do it often! The aim is to familiarize artists with what features happen where on bodies and when.

Also, note that the contours I followed included the clothing's contours, so there is no valley contour between the boobs.

Have fun!

I was trying to finish this right before the whole earthquake thing -_-

But anyway, I did this because I seldom use references; but when I do need them, there are none to be found. To my amazement, I came up with this. It's mostly fighting related poses.

I found I'm better at drawing mannequins in perspective than plainly drawing it out. So I think I'll stick to this way.

I hope you guys find this helpful. ^^

This is basically how i make my gradient hair. Ofcourse this is done very quickly, but this is just how i find it the easiest way to do it. All tools i  use are the ink pen and the blur tool, the program used is Paint Tool Sai.
I can make more complicated hair, but lets keep it simple and easy now c:
