Yeah, that's right. The first time any of you've heard from me in forever and I make a Pearl Jam reference.


Anyhow, I was looking through my stuff (both on dA, and what I haven't posted) and realized again how much I *suck* at drawing women. It's miserable. "How miserable?", you ask. Well if looking through what I have here doesn't convince you, then I don't know what will. Go ahead. Look around. If you don't shudder, then you're a better person than I.

The point I'm trying to make is that I will be looking at tutorials (preferably non-manga) and practicing my ass off to make a halfway decent looking female. Then, after that, I'll probably Powerslack and practice more afterwards. Along with the tutorials, I'll probably fave and follow more women drawings/photos (nude and non) to help me along. So don't go around thinking I'm a perv or something. ;)

I just need to get more motivated in general to draw more.

I'll be taking some extended time off from drawing for Pendant (for reasons not related to Pendant), so that should give me time to practice.

Anyway, enough about me. How are *you*?

I have plenty of cool coloring links, but not much on lineart or anything. I've always thought if I just sat down and copied some of the stuff by my favorite artists (Amy Reeder Hadley, Joe Mad, Doug Tennapel, Jeff Smith, Ottley, Rob Schrab, Mark Buckingham, etc) I'd improve drastically. But I've been powerslacking since 2004.

Seriously though, let me know if you ever want to borrow some comics for, uh, inspiration.

Send some links my way, if you don't mind. I've got JDillon and PolyKarbon bookmarked, but it doesn't help if PK is down right now. *sigh*

A couple of quick links:

One of the best places to find tutorials is through ImageFX-- that magazine that Sean always bought. You can find plenty of freebie downloads all over their website if you take a bit to browse. For example, this tutorial: [link]

Also by the same guy, but much simpler, is this: [link] I find his penciling process really interesting.

Those are just two I've been checking out lately, I'll pull up some awesome ones a bit later, when I'm not carrying a drugged out german shepherd up and down stairs.
