hi-res non-cropped version: part I | part II 

They asked me for a body tutorial, but first a bit of must-to-reads:

  • This tutorial is NOT for beginners
  • Yes, I made this tutorial BUT I’m in no position to say this is 100% correct. This is how I draw, these are my tips that solely adapts to my drawing style and I’m sorry if there are anatomic mistakes. I know I do a lot of them. 
  • When I was cropping this I noticed a lot of grammar mistakes, I’m so sorry I don’t have the time to correct them.
  • I don’t think there is any absurdity here but if I made some big and harming anatomy error please tell me and I will change/delete it
  • I never attend art school or art course, as I said on the tutorial. What I can do is self-taught, that’s why there’s so many errors.
  • the most important: USE REFERENCE IMAGES WHEN DRAWING! If they are real photos and not other drawings is better. This is the truth, you have to copy pictures in order to improve. That doesn’t mean you have to trace them, but observe them until you are able to reproduce it. Especially if you are drawing semi-realistic bodies like me! 

Hhhhh I’m not good with tutorials sorry very much (??)

As per request (thanks, singingrabbitskull!), I did a half-tutorial, half-sporadic notes on how I generally render basic expressions.

There’s already a lot of cool tutorials that exist on how to do expressions, so I tried to just look at a lot of really minor details that I’ve used but haven’t seen commonly passed down.

required disclaimer: this is just how I go about it, feel free to ignore bits, steal bits, do whatever you want with them. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions scream at my inbox!

Some of you may be wondering why I would paint a squirrel dissection. The answer is that I was studying what organs look like without being preserved in chemicals. Maybe I’ll be making veterinary illustrations for wildlife in the future. Who knows! This was good practice.
