Anonymous said:do you have a specific structure when drawing hands cause i s2g you draw the most realest hands out there (ps. your art is amazeballs)
I focus on the basic shapes first, and I find sharp lines best for this (don’t be afraid to exaggerate), like so:
Hi! Do you have any tips on drawing body figures? Especially the length of the legs? And do you have tips on drawing hands? Thanks!
Only way to learn figures is to look at them and draw them. I’ve taken figure drawing and anatomy for artist classes in addition to drawing a lot. Take them if you can! And I fuck up legs more than anything because I don’t draw them enough. Easy springboard though is searching for Andrew Loomis books.
Same with hands, though there are some fairly easy to describe formulas for hands so I drew up a couple rq
First of all, for probably 90% of the hand poses you’re gonna draw, think fingers like the petals on a pinwheel. They all curve the same degree, in relation to the previous.
Don’t like Manga Studio? Get this instead.
I know I’ve been basically acting as a clown with a sign outside the Manga Studio shop, but I do realize that some people are just too used to other programs to change now. And that’s fine, if you actually work better with it. But part of the reason I went over to Manga Studio, when I’ve tried Photoshop, SAI, Gimp, FireAlpaca, Sketchbook Pro, and Corel Painter… is because of the exceptional stabilizers and penstroke guides that let you make distinctive shapes, draw easily in perspective, and make it all look highly organic and professional.
Well… for those of you who want to stick with your other art programs… There is Lazy Nezumi Pro.
I do not use it. But that’s only because I feel that Manga Studio can already do all this stuff. But I am exceedingly impressed with what LNP has created. They’ve created a program that brings stabilizers, perspective guides, pressure sensitivity editing, and much more to programs that don’t normally have them.
I will just let the images speak for themselves:
This is the exact reason I have strayed from Photoshop. Because of the lack of ARTIST tools, and the profound lack of stability.
Well, here it is. They fixed it. And it works with other programs too.
So… yeah. If you aren’t interested in Manga Studio, but you still want to improve your digital penstrokes, definitely check out the demo.
I’ve been using this nearly constantly since I got it. It’s amazing~
OK I was super skeptical about this since I’m really comfortable going back and forth between SAI and photoshop, but this really is super simple, and the extra tools like the perspective and straight line and all that stuff is SO FREAKING COOL and intuitive. I’m still going to use SAI for inking and stuff but for painting an backgrounds and all the precision stuff, this thing is really awesome. Try this out!
Hello! How are you? Can you make a simple tutorial of how do you draw scars? Cause the scars on your Lion Tamer drawing are awesome.
(^This one right?)
I should have gone with a darker starting color to get the look of the Lion tamer scars, but this is the general Idea behind them. Thank you~!
What brushes do you use for your line art?
I primarily use these settings for most of my lines / sketching
I also set my eraser with the same settings
