Noob Tutorial by ThornedVenom Noob Tutorial by ThornedVenom
I hope this helps you improve your drawing skills for some of you, I've had this idea for a little while after seeing a bunch of people struggling with basic drawing.


As for myself, I still have a long way ahead of me.


PS: I don't dislike anime, au contraire, anime has some of the best visual styles ever. It's just that people get lazy and don't contribute to the maturity of that artform.

Have YOU seen real boobs, sir? ;)

Quite honestly, I think this tutorial is a generic piece of crap which tries to cover various random notions without any order nor real illustrated depth to each topic. But it was a necessary experiment to get familiar with the tutorial explanation process. =)

This was a really helpful article - in my case, more for *how* you described things than anything else (your descriptions in language were done beautifully). Sometimes just providing a different way of thinking about something can work wonders. So, thank you. :)

So you call it rhythm eh? I usually just refer to it as the flow.

Just to let you know, the dude punching in the gesture section has a pretty contorted pose. It's not physically possible to dip your head that low! (believe me, I tried doing that in the giant mirror in my room)

The correct pose for a strong punch would be the cheek leaning against the shoulder. And remember that a powerful strike requires rotation of the body!

Anyways, it's interesting you mention that art isn't just all technical and some things simply just can't be taught. This is also true in animation as well, when you want everything to appear natural and dynamic.

Yeah, you're right: I've exaggerated the movement too much. Thanks for pointing that out: I guess it's just one of those cartoony gestures we take for granted. As for rotation, I thought that the difference in shoulder positioning would do the trick, since the character is leaning forward.

And for what you've mentioned about experience, I know it's especially true for animation because of the notion of proper timing.

:clap: Very good! I really like it, certainly agree with most of what you said.

Only, about the smudges on pages: A way to solve it in the original paper would be, after the drawing is complete, use a bread-crum eraser -I really don't know how's it called in english, it's a malleable sort of rubber that as you pass it trough the drawing graphite sticks to it,, and doesn't ruin the page-
once that's done, redraw the main lines, using a paper under your palm (so as not to drag graphite over it again).
Once that's done, if the pencil is too soft, using hairspray over it makes it less delicate to touch :D

But if it's for scanning, as you said it's easily to solve with any software... I use the same scanner 's and enhance the contrast. :shrug: I'm limited like that.

They're called kneadable erasers: I have one, but since I tend to have a very heavy hand when I draw, it's not too effective for me. But as for the paper technique, I've seen people use it *coughAlexRosscough* but I'm too lazy to do it: maybe I should kick myself to use it some day.

Thank you for your feedback. =D
