welcome to tumblr where, unlike on facebook, it’s cool to have an anime character as your profile picture
The worst one is the “Looking for a tumblr girlfriend to make famous! <3” one
Old little pixel doodle :)
(I’m posting too much of my old stuff lately maybe I should draw something new… hmmmm :’D )
references! light studies! life drawing!! contour drawing!! THE BASICS!!! you can never have too much of the basics!!
crumple up a piece of paper and sketch it out! this will help you understand how the faces of an object fit together, separately and dissected, without your brain already understanding what it is.
your brain takes shortcuts so that you can read objects better— thats particularly why it’s super easy to see the human face in things even when it’s not there. thats why three dots and a curve :) can be seen as a smiley face. the brain is EXTREMELY GOOD AT THIS and its fascinating but its TERRIBLE if you’re trying to make art!!! you dont want your brain cheating you out on something. break it down, understand it in separate pieces so you can most accurately see what it is your audience will see, and not what your brain cheats for you to see!
"No hard feelings."
The relationship between these two gets me bawling. And I also really like to draw Seiko’s hair.
