Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics. 
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format. 
STEP 1
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditional tools.

NEW FEATURE FOR APRIL 2016

This group focuses on encouraging artists.
I would like to congratulate Vasylina :iconvasylina: for being the 6,000th member of this group and I have chosen three of my favourite artworks from her gallery to celebrate this occasion.

Because it is always hard to miss out by one digit:
Member number 5,999 Elephantsky:iconelephantsky: and member number 6,001 Sonheelight :iconsonheelight:
As usual April's feature contains a small selection of the amazing artworks I receive as submissions from our very talented members, which I hope everyone will enjoy and be inspired by.  Our membership is steadily growing and at the time of submitting this journal is now 6,007 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more inspirational artworks, which are well worth viewing as well as adding to your :+fav:.

Girls and boys, it's that time of the year again...

It's been a hell of a half-year... basically nothing has gone as it was planned before, and the future is like the ending of T2. But, well, we keep on trucking.

This is my 20th Comic-Con in a row.

Maybe I'm getting a bit old for this... but let's give it another shot, see what happens. If there's anything constant about every SDCC I've ever been to, it's this: no matter how difficult, how exhausting, how overwhelming or how disappointing it gets... every time, something awesome happens. Something that makes it worth it.

And should anyone go and say hi, here's my schedule:

Wednesday 7-8 pm: Signing at the Comixology Booth, #2547

Thursday 2:30- 3:30 pm: My first time at a panel!

Beyond the Blockbuster: Finding Comics for Comic Movie Lovers, Room: 8

Friday 11 am- 12 pm: Signing at the Comixology Booth, #2547

Other than that, I’ll be now and then at the Comicraft / Elephantmen Booth, #2106

See you on the other side...

  • Listening to: The John Campea Show
  • Reading: Robopocalypse by Daniel H Wilson
  • Watching: Brooklyn 99
  • Playing: No play
  • Eating: Hope
  • Drinking: Not after that party

TLIID 405. Low budget Silver Surfer
Girls and boys, this is low budget week at The Line it is Drawn!

This theme was due to a low-budget version of the Little Mermaid in screens this week, apparently... a really weird theme, if I may say. Oh, well.

Full gallery here:


Have a nice weekend, folks!

TLIID 403. Ellen Ripley, agent of SWORD
Girls and boys, this is secret agents week at The Line it is Drawn!

Some day I'll be calm enough to draw a proper Power Loader... that thing do takes time.

For all of you scratching your head, this is the yearly Munch week, in which we honor Detective John Munch, the character played by Richard Belzer in about 9 different TV shows.

And if you don't know who Ellen Ripley is, please hand your geek card and leave out the back door.

Leaving this scheduled, so please find the full gallery at CBR.com

Have a nice weekend, folks!

TLIID 402. Teen Titans Go to Blade Runner

TLIID 401. Squirrel Girl, Queen of the Ewoks

Girls and boys, I'm kind of confused, since we are celebrating the 400th week of The Line it is Drawn, but to me that was last week... I don't know where I over-counted...

Anyway... it's been a while... thanks for making it possible!

This is SDCC week, and this goes up on friday night, so you can still find me on saturday at booth 2106

Have a nice weekend, folks.

Do you guys take requests? If so, maybe you could do something for Samurai Jack?

Hi Axel, just saw in Previews that Elephantmen will begin his last story arc with issue 77.
Can you give any information how long it will approximately run and do you have any plans what you will do afterwards?

I would just love if you and Richard Starkings created a new book together, since you two seem to work so well together.
You've definitely become THE Elephantmen artist for me.
