Similar Deviations
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.

TUMBLR ARTBLOG

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.

This definitely is not one of my best ones. I feel kinda lost here. Ugh. I hope I made some sort of sence.

I recommend this tutorial which covers the feet way better than I did: [link]

Now I really need to get some sleep. Srsly. It's soon 4 AM...

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.

This is a little bonus with all the stuff I couldn't fit in the first part of Understanding Anatomy:

This is just a plain guide over the 8-head measurement which is commonly used in art. Many of you asked me about drawing shorter people and kids, wondering if they also had a 8-head ratio.

This is the answer (no babies don't have 8 heads).

I especially thank :iconsomarlidr: for the information about the ratio of the spine. I wouldn't have noticed this if it weren't for you :heart:

Feel like all my rabblings about cubes confuse you? then you maybe should check out this BASIC tutorial about perspective for beginners: by :iconshattered-earth:

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.

This is a little extension for the first part on the "Manga to Realistic"-series of tutorials. ----->


I thought that I should've covered how the face looks in profile, since many who draw manga tend to place the eyes too deep in the skull.

Sorry for the overworked and over-analyzed grid over the head, the ones to the right is probably easiest to follow.

EDIT: Fixed all the typos I found, there where even places where I accidentally removed a whole word! That's what happens when you do tutorials at night....



Yes I know, I should finish these and submit them when I'm not extremely tired and should get some sleep... but I just can't resist ;__;

and yeah, it really REALLY feels like I've missed 1236973619734 other things I should've mentioned in this part.

Guh I just hope you guys will get something out of it.

.... GAAAAH I FORGOT THE FREAKING SPINE....

okay I'm going to bed now.
