Unique Character Design Tips
In my opinion, these are the most important factors in any character design: color, concept, shape, simplicity, cohesiveness, repeatability, personality and uniqueness.
Color: Any design with colors all over the place creates too many places for the eye to look. Keep your color design very simple and zen. Looking at the colors shouldn't be jarring or confusing. This isn't to say only use one color, not at all, but try to make sure the ones you use are harmonious. Avoid mixing and matching different saturations of the same color or picking colors that clash with one another.
My rule of thumb: Stick to no more than three base colors and some value variations.
Concept: Your design should have inspiration, even if the inspiration is just your intended character's personality or an interesting object that represents them. Your character could be a bookworm, and that would impact her posture, her clothing, her hairstyle...pretty much everything about her! You can design

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. 
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditional tools.

When the world was young, and life was full of hope...

But then I deleted it by mistake, so I can't link it here. What I can link, however, is the tumblr blog I manage for Holystone, a fantasy-adventure webcomic written and drawn by Casey Columbus. To keep tabs on all things Holystone on social media, go here!

I'll have my own blog soon. An art blog... all my own... that definitely won't get cluttered with reblogged text posts and macro photography of food. Definitely.

I tried to draw a caveling here twice in muro but it turns out that web browsers are a lousy host for drawing applications, prone to completely erasing everything if you click the wrong thing.

Jaqhnun Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
OH NOOOO it's ok I'm imagining the beautiful caveling that could have been ;_; thanks so much dude
