Happy Birthday to Stormfront ^^
Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.
1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point
Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most common mistake. It’s probably due to either carelessness or really not having understood the basic of perspective. I encourage you to go back and find some basic tutorial for this.
Anyway, be ALWAYS careful about where to ‘send’ your lines, they NEED to go towards the correct vanishing point or it will just look awkward. Double check if necessary.
And always, ALWAYS use a ruler.
If your style requires lines that are a bit less geometrical (as mine do, I have a style of inking that’s sketchy so ‘perfect’ lines drawn with a ruler usually don’t fit well in the picture) use a ruler anyway for the pencils and then ink later by freehand. At least you’ll have correct guidelines underneath.
For traditional drawing be sure you have a ruler and be sure to use it for each one of your lines.
Modern drawing software will help you a lot with this if you draw directly on computer: painting software such as Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 4EX or 5 have perspective tools that will automatically snap your lines towards the vanishing point.
it’s quite a long tutorial, you’ll find the rest under the Read More or you can download the pdf file here
Since Xirnoch’s birthday is up I thought about.
"Aren’t dragons growing larger and larger as they get older?"
And so I imagined what he might look like as a fully grown 4 stories tall bad-ass dragon.
Happy birthday Xirnoch!
Happy (belated) birthday to Ducky ^^
The most important question is now:
Was that a lost bet.
Vexin trying her own limits of control.
Or an especially cruel attempt on her life?!
A mouth-watering fuck-ton of hand references.
[From various sources]
FOR ALL THE ARTISTS OUT THERE, I GIVE YOU…HANDS
tuutuuruu mentioned this post on my wip sketch, thank you very much this should definitely help because i seriously cannot draw hands. everything else, fine, hands, must look at refs for at all times.
I can apply it to other things like TREES, SPIKEY THINGS, FUR, FEATHERS, EXPLOSIONS
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
omg that lighter color thing

For all artists and art lovers, check this out! :) I’ll definately try this.
