Hey, it's alive! And it's posting art! ;)

Kit and Larina from my webcomic, Fey Winds. (Which is up and running once again, freshly restarted and looking a lot shinier and newer!)

feel free to poke fun at the makeshift logo ;) I might be posting the steps to making this in my scraps soon, so keep an eye out!

boy do i read that.
I'm caught up and waiting.

Question: how do you warm up for a drawing session...
and would you say that to master figure drawing is to draw A LOT of figures, then to transition that to drawing without reference (no model, just your imagination) is to only think in gesture? The form should have burned itself on your brain, making it easier for you to focus on the WHAT instead of the HOW.
What's your method?

Thanks!

To warm up I usually just make a couple of doodles before starting on whatever I want to draw. As for figure drawing, I think it's good to do a mix. It probably isn't realistic to think that someone can have the patience to only draw from life until the feel they master it enough to start drawing from imagination, but I think that it's a good idea to set aside some time to draw from life in between drawing just for fun.

I don't think it's a good idea to ever stop looking at references or drawing from life altogether, because a person's mental image of what a figure looks like will always be imperfect, and you can always learn something from reality.

yup... i definitely try to improve every sore and score by using actual stock found on Deviant art. I used to try this website (posemaniacs.com), and it taught me well gesture and form, but i figured it cheated me from the actual human model and all it's more intricate nuances.

Thanks for your time. Really appreciated.

Absolutely beautiful. The eyes are very captivating. And again, the pose is perfectly done. How exciting that you have a web comic dedicated to such interesting looking characters as well. I look forward to checking that out.

The poses and colours look lovely. I really love their shapes and their expressions. Kit looks especially lovely-I really like her freckles and almond shaped bright blue eyes :)

I love your colors- so very vibrant. My favorite part of this is definitely the way you shaded their lips (soooooo pretty) and the fur detail. Gorgeous.

Excellent image, they look very relaxed and carefree. The colors have just the right softness to them.

The logo isn't that bad. I like the simplicity - reminds of The Wind Waker art style. Good stuff.
