ive been thinking about a new way of sketching in/drawing joints— instead of thinking “upper arm, then elbow, then forearm” (this happens a lot for me when i go by the traditional sort of ball and stick way of constructing the body) it’s more of “upper arm, overlapping forearm

it’s kind of hard to explain but hopefully you’ll get what i mean from the pictures

stock for img and are from lalunatique

img 3 has some milt kahl hands and some from the iron giant

img 4 is an old drawing of mine that i tried to fix up using what i learnt here
(…okay, obviously, it’s still not the greatest thing ever but it’s still a far sight better now)


Check out our latest Citizen tutorial in which we take a real time look at creating a golden pumpkin step by step with you!


Okay there is no way I can make this in only few steps so I made

PART 2. HOW I MAKE / SHADE “cartoonish” FUR!

> PART 1. HOW I MAKE/ SHADE “realistic” FUR!
Notice that even if I use Paint Tool SAI, everything I do here, can also be done in any painting / Drawing program just as photoshop, GIMP, painter, Paint shop pro etc.

Also I am not going to tell you how to color Black and white images.
Click here if you want to know how that is done.



PATIENCE, PATIENCE, PATIENCE - and if you don’t know how the fur works I recommend you use magical tool known as “google”.
Google it. “fur” “animal fur” “dogs” “cats” “horses” “monkeys” - they all have different kind of fur. I know you can do it if you just put your mind in to it and have fun.
