Hey! I have two webcomics where you can see this in action: Miamaska and Trial of the Sun. If you liked these tutorials give them a shot!

Check out part 1:The Body- fav.me/d2j3z86
Check out part 2:Lady Faces- fav.me/d2k4ym6

Part 3: Male Faces! Long awaited I know. I'm terrible. Next one's in two-three months, on age and weight! I am quite terrible at giving estimates. Hopefully it'll come out in August!

All those characters up there are copyrighted to their respective owners, I do not claim ownership to any of them.

This tutorial series was inspired in part by an article on the TvTropes website. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php... Click there to see more examples!

Oh no... seing how these subtle changes affect the whole character's personality makes me worry about my lack of concern about keeping proportions and features regular from scene to scene D: . From now I think I'll pay more attention to them in order to keep a realistic, constant personality all the way through with your advice in mind. Thanks a lot.

Hey there!
I found your tutorials through a tumblr post and I have to tell you, I'm so glad for this! I've only just come back to drawing (had quite a long break) and now that I've somewhat achieved my own style, I wanted to tackle this exact topic, but I was rather unsure how to start. You gave me really cool input, so thanks a lot for that :)

Facial hair lineup.

Row two. The second guy to the left.

Looks just like Iningo Montoya.

You killed my father.

Prepare to die.

Somebody, send this tut and the other two in the series to every producer of anime and manga. Please!I like and collect anime and manga, but sometimes it is just too damn hard to tell the characters apart! Seriously!
