Octopie 1: Babe-drawing Basics by transfuse Octopie 1: Babe-drawing Basics by transfuse
Over the course of this past semester, one of my graphic artist buddies and I had a how-to-draw comic strip running in The Battalion, our student-run university newspaper. He and I would alternate on a weekly basis making little strips that followed a theme for the week (my strip was called "Octopie and his was called "Squidz"). You guys can check out both our strips in the AV Center section of thebatt.com.

I thought I'd compile and share my comic here on dA 'cause it's got some useful tidbits that some of you may find handy. So here's the first week of my strip, "Babe-drawing bascis." I'll post the rest later on. :)

very good job on this i especially liked the occasional humor that you have in your tutorials haha thats one thing some other tutorials dont have i also have to give praise to your attention to detail like the way things line up on the body, how long body parts are compaired to the others for proper scale and i thought i was the only one smart enough to do that ^^ btw this is pretty much a comment for all your tutorials i just hapened to comment on this one

mmmmh, do you really draw them like this? i always thought those helping lines and stuff to be a great lie to sell more "how to draw"-books, stuff like that unfortunately never helped me...:D
anyway, love your tutorial, although id never use it...:3
