TUMBLR ARTBLOG <-- that is where I post these. You'll find more studies under the "protip" tag.
For you who follow my tumblr, this isn't new stuff. But I guess it might be a good idea to start sharing my studies with ppl on dA as well. I have a lot more to show you, I'll prob upload next dump tomorrow.
Decided to change the titles on these deviations since they are technically not "tutorials" but just my own drawing studies.
For the head angles I used this as reference. It's really handy I must say. One day I shall manage to draw the whole "map" on my own : > At the moment I'm a bit too tired trying to dig out all the othe references I used on the other studies, I'll prob make a journal with links to them sooner or later.
UPDATE: If you wanna know more about the 8-head ratio on shorter people just click on this link:
YES I USE ANDREW LOOMIS BOOKS AS REFERENCE. You guys should download his stuff, they are FREE ---> [link][link][link] <----- CLICK AND DOWNLOAD YOU SMARTHEADS.
His style is a bit old fashioned, but there's a reason why his methods still work out.
Oh and sorry if I didn't cover details like shoulders flexibility and that the body is 7 - 7,5 head units tall and not 8. READ THE GODDAMN TEXT BEFORE YOU POINT IT OUT. Srsly. It's not like I don't know that. It's pretty hard to fill the tutorial with everything when the size limit is 18000 px, it may sound big but for a tutorial like this, it is not that much space.
Srsly. If you don't read the text in the tutorial, you'll miss stuff.
Feel like all my rabblings about cubes confuse you? then you maybe should check out this BASIC tutorial about perspective for beginners: by
As always I finish these tutorials around 5 AM in the morning haha. Enjoy everyone, this one does not cover muscles and such. But I feel this is still a very important area you should consider practicing on. When I started thinking with cubes, my anatomy improved A LOT.
Omg I seriously started working on this at 3PM and finished it at 01:30AM today. This is probably one of the most time consumed parts I've done. AND YES THERE WILL BE GRAMMAR/SPELL ERRORS I DON'T CARE ATM I NEED TO SLEEP :''''''D
