negative space is one of the key elements of creating a strong silhouette! when all of the components of a drawing are clumped together, the drawing becomes difficult to read
Thoughts on Character Design
“Some things I think are important in character design:
2. Reading the Script
4. Trial and Error
it’s not out of line at all!
this doesn’t have so much coloring and shading, hmm…
i’m just gonna throw links at you because it’s hard to find particularly useful stuff and i don’t know what you’ll find useful!
http://www.howtodrawmanga.com/howtodraw/jdillon/clothing1.html (there’s more than one page; click “on to the next section” at the bottom for the next pages)
i’m just indiscriminately throwing links; sorry @_@
http://draftingmanuals.tpub.com/14263/css/14263_165.htm <— this also has more than one page, and the links to the other pages are at the top under “back” “up” and “next” (though on this page, only “next” links to a page about clothing — but on that page, there are more pages slfdkjs)
I’M NOT FINDING ANYTHING ABOUT COLORING CLOTH OR REALLY SHADING IT
all i’m really finding is how to draw clothing folds agh

oh sldfkj! i misread what you wrote; i’ve gotten several tutorial requests since i posted that last one, so i just assumed that’s what you were asking 6_9
http://www.cgsociety.org/index.php/CGSFeatures/CGSFeatureSpecial/tutorial_how_to_paint_realistic_hair <- this has always been one of my favorites (jsyk, it has more than one page and there’s a “next” button at the bottom)
http://idrawgirls.com/tutorials/2012/03/14/digital-painting-tutorial-painting-hair/ this isn’t very helpful (in my view) but it’s very pretty

Hey kids! If you’re a filmmaker, animator, or storyboard artist and you don’t know what screen direction is, you might want to read this.
For the record, there are always exceptions to the rule in filmmaking, which is why I pointed out 3 examples here.
I’ve also found that comic books tend to NOT take screen direction as seriously as film does, but I’m still on the fence if this is wise or not. My favorite comics pay close attention to screen direction so as to not confuse the reader.
I did some compositional how-to’s in my early weeks at Warner Bros. studios. I thought it’d be great to post a series of these on the Tumblr’s for beginning board artists.
This is the first part - the rule of thirds.
broadfields asked you: Could you possibly do a mouth tutorial? Unless you’ve already done so. In that case, possibly pointing me in the right direction? :]
I wash my hands of this. It’s evidence of my piss-poor design skills.
Sorry for making such a huge post! I was just concerned about some of the bigger pictures being viewable, so I didn’t want to make this a text post…

Experimenting in finding a technique that suits me when it comes to paint detailed stuff like foliage in nature.
Please note that the program I use is Corel Painter 12 - not SAI or Photoshop.
I noticed that if I reduced the resaturation of my favourite painting brush to 3-4%, it got more affected by the background color. This is something I appreciate, since I love the thought of giving a painting a certain color theme.
Please note that on the two last pictures, I used the same green colors on each background color. But depending on which background color I use, the “primary and secondary” colors appears as either cooler or warmer.
So, my final conclusion is that it’s ALWAYS a better idea to start with the darkest values, and then add the midtones/highlights afterwards.
The size, shape and length of the strokes will also affect the overall appearance of the foliage. I recommend people who are afraid of painting foliage backgrounds to observe photographs/real life study.
- How will a bush/tree/grass look like if I use small and round strokes? And how would long, thin strokes make it appear?
- How would it appear if I used a different color than green for the foliage?
- How many different designs of bushes, grass, plants and trees can I paint/draw without looking at a reference?
- How can I paint a green forest without the risk to make it appear “monochrome”?
