Rat Creature's Journal - how to draw female comic characters (according to Wizard)...
brown_betty asked for examples "to illustrate the exactly how and why female comic characters are illustrated differently than the male." And I thought, really, what's better to illustrate these things than the books teaching the style in the first place? A while ago I posted some scans from Wizard How To Draw series on drawing female superheroes (here and here), and I thought I'd post a bunch more from the first book of the series on "How To Draw: Heroic Anatomy". As everything, it starts with the basics, i.e. proportions. The female example is similar, but slightly different, notice how he stands firm and straight, wheras she stands with her hips cocked a little and the leg thrust forward? Also notice in the direct torso comparison below, how the male one is ramrod straight, but she curves and leans just a little bit in the same pose? Now onwards to the chapter "Sultry Women". Next, Michael Turner explains "Sex Appeal". Related:  Anatomy

Art Students Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form Another mention of the book is on a page of the study of Human Proportions through the ages: Proportionslehre from the Luitpold-Gymnasium Munchen: Polycletus was a Greek Sculptor active in the late 300s and early 200s B.C., along with Phidias, he created the classic Greek style. None of his works survive but Roman copies do. He was and is most appreciated for the naturalness of his sculptures and his admiration for the beauty of the natural figure as opposed to rigorous ideals of proportion. He also used a natural shift of weight to one leg known as contrapposto which gave his works a feeling of movement. From History of Sculpture: From the Earliest Ages to the Present Time by Dr.Wilhelm Lubke - 1872: "Next to Athens, at this period, Argos appears as the central point of a second important school. It was Polycletus' Canon that formed the basis for The Sculptor and Art Student's Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (c) to view the PDF file.

A Bunch of Tutorials How to Draw the Head From Any Angle | Stan Prokopenkos Blog - StumbleUpon The Basic Forms To draw the head from any angle you must first understand its basic structure. Look past all the distracting details and visualize the underlying forms. This ability to simplify can be applied to the features of the face, but when starting the drawing you could look even further. Ignore even the features and simplify to the most basic form of the head. I use a method taught by Andrew Loomis in his book, “Drawing the Head & Hands”. The head deconstructed into its basic forms, is a sphere as the cranium and a block as the jaw and cheek bones. A Sphere as the Cranium The sides of the head are flat, so we can slice off a piece from both sides of the ball. A Block as the Jaw and Cheek Bones Attach the shape of the jaw. Constructing From Any Angle Step 1 – Determine the angle of the ball The angle of the head is established at the very beginning of the drawing with the ball. X Axis - The up and down tilt is established by the angles of the horizontal and vertical lines in the oval.

Have you ever found yourself mired in this process? Come up with idea!Build idea!Put idea online… Wait for sales…… wait for sales…Double down and try to figure out “product-market fit”, in other words: Who wants to buy this? Over the years, I’ve watched countless friends & acquaintances get stuck in this process. If you do make it to Step 6, though, you come face to face with the high probability of Hidden Step 7: Give Up, wherein you struggle to find a repeatable source of sales… and can’t. Lots of strategies have come out to “fix” this process. Get you past Step 3: Ship The Damn Thing more often, faster (“Lean”)Hopefully carry you from Step 6: Flail to actual sales, instead of the nearly inevitable Step 7: Give Up (“Customer Development”) Oofta. The real trick is to bypass this process entirely Because the original “process” (such as it is, formed of unconscious wishes and unicorn spit) is not valid.
