A wonderous fuck-ton of human hand references.
[From various sources]
Wow that just killed my hand.
And here I thought I could draw out answers. I already regret my decision.
It’s such a miracle I had to make a comic about it.
Don’t ask how I got through school, either I’m a useless good-for-nothing student or I’m a legend among youths.
I wonder if anyone will notice that I’ve used a different style for every panel.
Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.
I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!
Just a reminder - if you’re drawing a team superhero book and more than one of your characters has the same build YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG
Gotta say, Kayode’s pretty damn hot for being a middle-aged man stuck in a 12-year ol’ body.
… Conflicted over whether I’m suddenly a shotacon or teleiophile.
Might colour this, might also not. Currently dealing with his skull “hat” and scars, so we’ll see. Anyway, concept art is concept art.
I seem to be doing a lot of TFC work lately.
Not my best night-drawing, but uh yeah. So I don’t think I’ve talked much about it, but I know I’ve said among all my endless projects I have three huge ones. One’s Serek’s story, the second’s my Pokémon story, and the third one is called The Fallen Crowns.
Now, they all fall into the adventure category, but TFC probably puts the dot above the i for that genre.
It’s about a boy who sets out on a journey to find the culprit who slaughtered his people and take revenge. During his travels, he meet people who either try to harm him, ask for his help or decide to help him. But he soon discovers, as he travels from country to country, over land, underseas, high up in the sky, that something is terribly wrong. Kingdoms have fallen, nations are in war and something dark, something unknown, is spreading like a plague.
When I say this story is huge, I mean HUGE. It’s probably the one that requires the most time and work because it’s set in a made-up world that is divided into three sections, there’s an ancient made-up language that is brought up a lot, there are so-far over 50 races (I may scrap some, but I may also add new ones) with their own cultures and there are over 10 maincharacters (they’re like a crew and travel by ship) plus a lot of other important characters.
I’ll talk more about it another time.
Things to note about the story though is that
1. all races have either horns (where 1 to 2 is common and 3 to 4 is rare) or antlers (also quite rare), and
2. all races/nations have so-called “Crowns” which is what they call their Kings/Queens/Emperors/Empresses and everyone looks up to them as Gods/Goddesses.
Again, I’ll talk more about that as well later.
More importantly (and to get to the point of this doodle), the world is as I said divided into three sections. The Sky World (all people who live there are called Yalan btw), the Land World and the Ocean World. There could be argued to be a 4th world, the "Night World", though it’s just a small independent region in the Sky World.
As there are Crowns, there’s also The Crown, who is honestly more of a God than royalty. The Crown is the, let’s say spirit, who chooses Crowns and is said to be the source of all life.
But Crowns can be replaced, and it’s not a title you inherit. When a King or Queen dies, their royalty returns to The Crown who then chooses a new King or Queen. It could be the child of the previous Crown, but it could also be a mere commoner. The Crown's word is absolute, so no one argues over it no matter who is chosen.
There are special cases though, those who are not Kings or Queens over just one nation but their whole world. And among those we have the Sky/Sun Queen, who is - surprise surprise - the Queen of The Sky World.
We also have the Night/Moon King, the Ocean Queen, and the Desert King. Self-explanatory.
These “World Crowns” are immortal (in other words eternal life, they could still be killed though) and can only be replaced by their offspring or, if they have no children, then someone who has proven their worth.
The whole world is in chaos, and to make it worse both the Night King and Ocean Queen have fallen and the Desert King has been missing for . As these Crowns appear very rarely, no one knows anything about the Sky Queen’s status as of yet.
SO YEAH, A WALL-OF-TEXT-I-HADN’T-PREPARED-FOR LATER…,this is concept art of the Sky Queen’s outfit.
Wow, that was long. Can’t believe I keep all of this in my head.
Okay, I’m off to bed now, yeah, just gonna leave this right here, kthxbye.

better than school tbh
When it comes to creating characters, sometimes it’s easy to let them slip into the same old stock standard set of body types. Basically clones with a few props, hairdos and make up to spice things up a bit. After a while, having the same actor play dress up for every character gets kinda boring…
It’s tough to break the habit too, especially when you’re taught a single set way to draw. Not to say having a solid construction method is ever a bad thing, as long as it doesn’t confine your creativity.

This is important, and something I super need to improve on. All these tips and stuff for drawing are crazy useful and very, very appreciated.
If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you
Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!
You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2 and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.
Did you guys know my favourite Normal-type is Nyarth/Meowth?
Dare I say it’s my second general favourite after Magikarp?
I used to have a Shiny Meowth called Vanilla, but it turned out to be a fake. I loved her so much but I couldn’t transfer her to X. orz
Here’s process btw (colour is all on one layer).
