They even have capes! I love capes.
memes that are more useful than actual class
here is a list of deviantart memes that are more helpful than our character design teacher could ever hope to be. i wouldn’t say you have to do all of them, or even every thing in each one (switch stuff up a bit if it inspires you to draw a different pose), but they’re all good starting places!
Expressions and Body Language
25 Essential Character Expressions - super helpful for different emotions you might not normally draw
Ultimate Expressions - same thing but bigger if you have like a YEAR
Reactions - expressions, but with a reason!
Body Language - body language is just as important as facial expression, so this is a good one to try
Different Ages - it’d probably be better to space out the ages more, but it’s a good start
Character Variety - figure out what makes them unique
Wardrobe - drawing clothes is FUN
updated age meme
Crispy’s Perspective Tips: Partitionining or “How I cheat on Perspective”
This was written for Wytwolf, who was expressing having some problems with drawing things when the vanishing point or the horizon line isn’t visible in the picture. But if you guys would find it useful too, feel free to take a peek.
Warning: This was done up really quick inbetween working on things. Also, because some people have expressed being annoyed with my long posts, everything’s under a cut. Have fun and keep drawing!
(JUST AS A NOTE, what I’m showing you here is a LOT EASIER TO DO TRADITIONALLY THAN ON PHOTOSHOP—honestly, figuring out vanishing points outside of the frame is really easy to do digitally. This is how I deal with that tricky stuff when I’m drawing with paper and pencil. I juts did it digitally for the sake of getting this up faster)
ANYWAY, TUTORIAL UNDER CUT.
