Anon asked me for my character development questionnaire. It’s actually a variation of this one, that I’ve found here. I cut out a few questions that I thought were unimportant for the stories I’m going to write (such as everything related to having children), grouped a few others that I thought were too repetitive and added a few that I considered important. I’ve also divided them in two major groups: required and not required - you can’t skip a required, no matter how hard it seems to be to answer it.
I think you all should feel free to do the same, both with mine and with the original.
One of my all time favorite anatomy references is this handy dandy little webpage here. More than 750+ male and female photos in sequence? check. Outstanding b/w lighting on all of them? check. All SFW images but enough skin showing where the muscle placement is? check. Contortion, fencing, parkour and other poses included? checkity-check.
All of that for free? Aw yeah.
Go take a look around. ;D
Every artist who sees this post should do the following:
- Watch the video.
- Follow the instructions
I can’t stress you enough about how important these exercises are for your drawing hand. You don’t wanna get CTS of Tendonitis and similar stuff that will prevent you from making art or even hold a pencil.
I first saw this video… I dunno, a couple of years ago? But after seeing this it instantly became part of my daily routine. Having your wrist crap out on you because you haven’t taken care of yourself while drawing is agonizing and not fun.
Get to stretching, artist buddies.
I usually don’t reblog stuff when a post demands it of me, but I found this video to be very helpful.
I feel bad because I can’t do the last exercise because my joints are too inflexible.
Also that really fucking hurt, which is probably a bad thing.
my wrists get really sore a lot so i think ill try to do this every day now
feels good mang
