Today would have been Jack "King" Kirby's 100th birthday, and his contribution to the comic medium is immeasurable. He helped to re-define how comics visually work, and is the cornerstone to some of the most enduring comic characters in history.

If you've ever read a comic book or seen a comic movie, or drawn or created your own comic, you owe something to the power of Kirby's creative genius. We are all in debt to what he gave us for decades, and he raised the bar for what comics can do.
  • Listening to: Bangy, clangy electronic music

Hey Paul! Asking as someone who is currently attempting to hone their own skills in digital art, what canvas size do you recommend as a good starting point for drawing a regular human figure?

I'd say any size can work, but if they are just learning, I encourage people to work on larger sheets of paper (or bigger digital canvas sizes) to allow them to really move the pencil or stylus around and loosen up, and to also keep them from banging into the edges too quickly. Drawing the body/figure is all about learning the basic proportions of the body, so tell them to be thinking about trying to keep proportions of the body in correct ratios. As lame as it sounds, take a look at anatomy books and use the "heads" method of portioning out the relative heights of the torso, pelvis, and legs of the figure in relationship to the head. 
They can work at any size that is comfortable; I always encourage beginners to work big to make them loosen up.  : )
Hope that helps!

Thanks for the advice! I don't have a lot of anatomy books, but my Mum is a personal trainer and has a lot of old fitness magazines lying around; those could be useful, if only for getting a sense of proportion and figuring out issues with posing.

Here's hoping I'll have something to show for it as soon as possible! :)

(I've been working on some superhero sketches in the meantime, including some original characters, and re-imaginings of the B-list Fawcett superheroes. Consider yourself an inspiration!)
