Anonymous asked: Hello! I'm a huge fan of your work, it's really really amazing. I was wondering if you could make a quick tutorial on faces? Like how to sketch them and build on them so that they can actually look like faces ^.^ I would appreciate it if you can but if you don't want to that's cool too. Sorry for taking up your time!
I don’t mind at all. I’m pretty much the most unhelpful person ever in explaining anatomy, but I made a quick gif that might be useful!
This is maybe a three minute sketch. You can see how I sort of slap stuff together—lots of scribbly foundation done in basic shapes that I sketch out features on top of, and then some refining. I find that adding eyes on the face last is best because then I won’t get distracted by them. I generally recommend thinking of the body as a collection of shapes. Sketch quickly and loosely and don’t get too hung up on one particular aspect of the face without also taking into account how it looks in relation to the rest of the features.
Bonus cleaned up version:
*jazz hands* Hope that helps!
It’s been kind of quiet here lately because I’ve been working on stuff for Valentine’s. So, um, something that was an answer on my nsfw blog but is completely sfw! [obvi yes that is a link to the smutblog. don’t click it if you ain’t prepared.]
