This is a commissioned piece, please do not repost/reuse these images.
FUCKING THANK YOU
figure studies are actually the most boring thing but I really wanna get better at drawing boys
Cheat-sheet for drawing girl legs sideways. This is mostly from my own observation, and using the straight/curve principal for appeal in drawing.
I got asked about eyes and how to convey expression through them, so I doodles some quick stuffs to help explain.
So have some eyeballs.
A super quick trick for drawing draped fabric that my art teacher taught me in high school.
The book does have a basic breakdown of the hands, but I felt that references like these were much more needed.
From Graphic Sha’s “How to Draw Manga: Drawing Yaoi”
It’s pleasantly ironic how a book about drawing yaoi would have such a good segment on drawing hands
Link to full size, it’s a big one
I said I have a lot of thoughts about shoes and the woeful mistakes even seasoned professional artists make with them, and I wasn’t kidding. Here’s a lot of words about high heels, in a constructive way.

Ok I was recently reminded that this exists (i-I think someone DA-famous linked it or something because WHAT) and I think this may be relevant to tumblr’s interests so here’s my~female body variation tutorial~ whoo~
This came from some things I scribbled down when I was trying to keep my character designs consistent, and I realised that it kinda made me see bodies/proportions somewhat differently so I pasted it into this smarmy old tutorial, now cut up into (I hope) tumblr-friendly chunks so right-click for full size I think? (disclaimer: I don’t know anything and it is so far past my bedtime that it’s been tomorrow for a whole day so I’m going to nap and then maybe regret posting this.)
FUN WITH PHOTOSHOP BRUSH SETTINGS is a set of tutorials I’m making, because I realized there’s a lot I don’t know about brush settings :D. I’ve learned so much so far, I hope you guys find them useful as well!
Making more of these as we speak,
- Brush tip shape & Brush Pose (which was supposed to be part 1 but I finished this one first :D) STAY TUNED!
