the hair is so lovely *____* and his profile looks awesome!
Thank you :) Confession time: I used to be absolutely terrible at drawing profiles, so I keep drawing on them because I find them fascinating, and because I want to understand them better.
ooh i like the blue shading on his skin. very very nice.
Thanks! I’m trying to break out of my safety box of crayons a tiny bit more :) *flexes*
This is really quick and thrown-together. I haven’t done one of these in a while. But hopefully it can demonstrate some things about measuring/accuracy.
The first thing I do is look at the positive and negative space (pink and teal). And then I draw those shapes to get the basic shape of the person’s head.
Then, I start looking at the distance between landmarks. I only used horizontal lines in this example, but I can use all kinds of lines. Once you get one distance right, you can use it to measure other distances. For example, once you know the distance between someone’s eyes and mouth, you can figure out within that distance where their nostrils should be. Conversely, looking at someone’s nose can help you figure out the distance between eyes and mouth.
You can measure from landmark to landmark, is my point. You can move your way around the face. You can zoom out and see big shapes, and then find shapes within the big shapes. Measuring is the kind of thing that happens one-at-a-time but also all-at-once.
The basic idea is to break up the space into smaller and smaller pieces.

(Ale, I’m sorry. Sorta. A little.)
oh wow nice work!
Eeee, thank you :D I tried to push things a little differently with these, I’m quite pleased with them! *smish*
euclase replied to your post: Working on some stuff, feel free to come hang out…
you need a plugged in mic? then how does my laptop do it? *magic*
Oooh, I have a desktop pc! No auto-magic-mic for meeeeeeee ;_;
the movement in this is just magnificent. yummmm.
Thanks :3 That’s the main reason I ditched my first sketch, it wasn’t exciting enough to really capture the moment properly, which was my goal to begin with. The water and wings ended up changing a lot, I forgot that those bits kind of stumped me for a while.
ah cool! how do you like muro?
I like this newer version more than the older one, that’s for sure. I like that I can just sketch and mash colors and not worry about being distracted with bringing in different layer modes to experiment with. It’s just a brush and colors and opacity and GO. It keeps up with my fast and messy strokes pretty well, which is an A+ for me. It got weird on me when I was using my tablet shortcut key to use multiple undos, so I guess I just have to watch out for that. It’s an interesting, simpler bridge between painter and elements, but I wouldn’t want to trade this for them… I’m sure I’ll mess around with it more. :) Thanks!

That’s kind of like dying, and going to heaven.. right?
yes i like thiiiiss. i like this very very much.
I’m glad to hear this, I was worried because of the lack of cows :3
i think you can pretty easily save this. can i overdraw a wee bit?
Sure, I’m down with that :) There’s plenty I do think I still like it’s just.. you know, it’s just that something, right? Thanks!
