How To Draw Better In 2 Minutes

I expected this to be a troll video about sacrificing your soul in exchange for art skills or something but this was actually very informative.

Good stuff.

freeglassart asked
You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

put on more stuff

fix stuff again

image

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

it’s nice to see how others do stuff like this, everyone is different but there’s something to learn from everybody!

christopherjonesart:

I’ve decided my next art print really, really needs to be Wonder Woman. Producing an art print takes me total 1-2 weeks, so I don’t do them willy-nilly. I’ve been trying to decide on what kind of pose I want to do with her.

I definitely don’t want her just standing there or in any kind of sex…

This is the closest I can find, but definitely I think Diana’s power should be showcased more often.

A co-worker and friend has been doing these Akira/Gravity Falls cross overs, so I figured I’d steal his idea add to it myself.
Perhaps a little too subtle a shot? Like, if I didn’t mention it was a cross over one would think it was just Gruncle Stan with a mustache in a helicopter. 9_9

Okay… I know I said I was only going to do this as a sketch, but I really liked the piece and I had an urge to tweak it. I changed the composition to show more of Asami because a lot of people couldn’t tell I put her in a dress, and I really liked the dress (I found the design on google image). I also thought it would be nice to add Opal to the mix since I thought she’d look cute in one of those 30’s style hats (not sure what they’re called). And finally I wanted to play up the disheveled look on everyone. Especially Mako with the fluffed out hair and bandages.
Also, I noticed someone pondering if this was some sign that Korra would have her hair down more in Book 4, so let me make this clear, I drew this image with NO clues or hints about Book 4. I purposefully put them in clothing and a situation that is far removed from the actual show in any way for that reason.
Book 4 is on it’s way, I’m excited for it. I can’t wait to see the finished animation, and to experience the closing chapters.
EDIT: You ever finish an image at Midnight and post it online, wake up the next morning, see it’s got over 2000 reblogs and notes and then realize…. Mako’s too short.
Fixed Mako’s hight. Scuffed up Opals hat and dress a little because I didn’t want to insinuate she wouldn’t get into it a little. Also touched up Korra and Asami’s hair a very little.

Seriously, I think I’m done tweaking this now… gonna just… let it go now.

I wanted to draw something for Book 4 release date fast approaching. But I’m probably gonna be SUPER busy for the next several weeks, so I did this up real quick and real rough.
It being the last book of the series, it has a sense of finality to it. So I wanted something that felt like the end of a long night or something.

Duuuude
