I was looking for a good set of online anatomy tutorials I could follow and study on a daily basis, and I’m so happy to have found The Structure of Man series. These are from three tutorials that I finished. The maker likes to talk a bit but the videos are really worth watching if you want to learn human anatomy from simple concepts, gradually adding on to draw figures more realistically.
Edit: (I should probably explain a bit what I did, heh heh) So basically you start with a line, then keep splitting it in half (and sometimes into thirds) until you get these sections where parts of the body line up to. From there, the body becomes like a diagram as you keep “connecting the dots” to find your next point. It’s a great reference point to have in your mind especially when you draw figures in perspective and such. Very simple, very easy to remember.
I couldn’t even include all of the reference boards this blog contains on this photoset. That’s right! There’s EVEN MORE! There are pages and pages of them! It is an inspiration treasure trove! Bookmark this link! Fill your life with inspiration!
Made this in tribute to World Suicide Prevention Day. I can’t stress how important it is to understand suicide as a mental issue. It’s not easy. Be a friend, lend a hand, and spread the word. #NoOneElse14
A view of Montreal from a one of my school building’s rooftop terrace. Beautiful city.
Autumn, digital painting. September 4, 2014.
Had lots of fun experimenting with colour. I wasn’t planning to draw a fall tree but the colour contrast was too tempting to not do it. (I ended up having to change the colour of the hill and sky to match an autumn scene with a hue adjustment layer but shhhh…I’m not cheating.)
