step 1 – figure out what character and motion you want
Sometimes the pose picks the character. Sometimes it’s the other way around. Forcing a character to do something outside it’s nature will make the piece seem wrong at times.
Step 2 – draw the bones.
No I don’t mean actually draw the bones. I mean put a few circles on the page. Get a feel for if.
Step 3 – flesh it out
Start adding in details. Physical features are important as the clothing.
Step 4 – clothing, jewelry, etc
Add in the details. Make it pretty and don’t forget the small stuff. A tiny nose stud takes church girl to young rebel.
See tomorrow for more bunnies on ice.
I mostly do cute cuddly little creatures with little extra emotions. They express themselves in their liquor or dessert of choice mostly. So @buried_in_books found a how to draw and paint animation book and I’m playing with it. Most of you know by now that I’m working on xmas gear. So here is my brute moose
He’s just a sketch but I hope you enjoy him. I kept breaking the lead in my pencil and I was sketching in bed so now I have pencil lead in bed.
this was a sketch I did while at anthrocon. Hopefully u like.
It’s just line art with mechanical pencil with soft lead.
This sketch for an anthropomorphic bear turned out oddly similar to a much younger bear we read as kids.
This is a simple sketch on Canson sketch book paper in pencil. I use mechanical pencils with the softest leads I can find.
oh me, show me, I wanna be posted. Please, post me. Come on I’m cute. I know @buried_in_books doesn’t love me but I’m cute. I’m facing the camera and everything.
Yay you’re posting me.
