BIG FILE-How I draw people. by Crimm-Art BIG FILE-How I draw people. by Crimm-Art
EDIT 2: This is old and you shouldn't look at it.

EDIT: BLARG I'll fix the spelling mistakes later. I've got a bedroom and bathroom to clean.

This thing is FUCKING HUGE. Like for real. 856x6986. So if it's not loading then you can download it, since the fullview can be so gosh darn finicky.

Now, this isn't a "how to be an awesome artist" tutorial because I'm not that awesome. Only a little awesome. This is just a "how I do stuff" with a side of "some anatomy basics."

Hopefully it helps. And if anyone (mainly you pat :P) has more specific questions, feel free to ask and I'll do a more specific tutorial.

Oh god yes.

Draw from life. I know that sounds cliche and everyone says that, and when I was younger I was like "Bah I don't plan on drawing from life anyway," but it's actually really freakin' important. Especially figure drawing. Our foundation freshman year was pretty much relearning everything we'd ever learned in high school or whatever. Our drawing class was pretty much straight-up figure drawing all year. It sounds like a lot, but it was actually really informative. You'll get more out of it though if you already have a decent handle on your figure drawing.

And try and discipline yourself, because you're gonna do a lot of work, and you really, really don't want to put your projects off until the last minute. X___X

And I guess just keep drawing. Draw things you wouldn't normally draw, like a lamp or a lightbulb. And you might want to just practice a little bit of perspective drawing. And try using things you wouldn't normally use like crayons, or try drawing without outlines and just rely on shading.

Thanks for the advice! It's really helpful. I guess at the moment my main worry is my grades, have to keep my GPA up lol.

Always nice to see how somebody else does things.

And I'm very relieved to find out I'm not the only layer crazed person around.

As for the picture you drew, don't worry about it. Foreshortening is a bitch for everyone.
Though I will say the issue with the legs probably comes from the body being too long, and the legs too short. Or at least that's how I see it.

This has to be the most self-loathing sarcastic tutorial I've ever read. I kind of like it.

I feel really good reading this, because I already knew most of the stuff :D

Well, I use a 5-head system, but I already knew that was wrong, so...

Cutesy background, btw.

Now make a tutorial for coloring/shading and for why the sky is blue >D
