A helpful fuck-ton of boob references.

Note that since this contains long images that are currently fuzzy (because tumblr just doesn’t want to display ‘em clearly), you gotta reverse-image search ‘em in google. Just because it’s a little extra work doesn’t mean you oughtn’t do it; the large image on the right is totally worth the effort for female anatomy, and the one of the left is also helpful with bra things. They’re all quite helpful.

Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - Feet

I don’t often have to draw bare feet, unless I’m doing Life Drawing. When storyboarding, the focus is generally not on the feet. They also are usually covered (shoes, socks), or just not shown on screen that much. Nonetheless, it’s important to understand their functionality and general appeal. Keep details to a minimum, unless the character uses its bare feet to grasp things or do things with them most humans don’t. The best example of pushing feet to an extreme degree of functionality would be Disney’s Tarzan (one of my all time favorite). Other than that, don’t draw too much attention to them, but find appeal in its shapes.

Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - Push it!

Clarity is probably the most important thing to think about at all time when boarding. Pushing your poses to an undeniable level of clarity will improve the clarity of the storytelling in general. Don’t leave space for uncertainty in posing out your characters. Your audience will be more engaged and entertained by the sequence.

This is the last post for the Super Week. I hope you enjoyed it. Back on the regular schedule next week (Every Tuesday).

Norm

What a great series.  Thanks for posting these!

monicameza asked: What made color *click* for you? I am terrible with color and immediately ruin anything I draw once I apply it. Any classes you took (I.e. Color Theory) or books you read our artists you followed or emulated? Color has eluded me for my entire life!

eshiel:

hey!! this is a really rad question and i’ve been super excited to answer it so apologies if i get tl;dr

basically back in hs color was something really frustrating to me, i didn’t understand it and i usually worked black and white, and the summer before freshman year of college i decided to try and focus on color, so i started doing these monotone-ish pieces

image

where i was just kind of experimenting w/single color palettes to try and get a grasp for it? but beyond that i was kind of just diddlin around until my second semester, when i had to take color theory, where my professor was the wonderfully talented + hard assed mike geno(cw:food) we learn the munsell color system - the class has changed a bit since i was a freshman but essentially we maintained a color sketchbook + also did paintings on bristol that focused on different aspects (like various color schemes such as complementary/split complementary/etc, simulated transparency, tint and shade and chroma, etc). it was a very intense class and it definitely helped me a lot in terms of being able to see colors!

i don’t think there was ever a definitive aha moment, though — i started doing more work in color sophomore year and there reached a point where my friends were like “oh, you’re good at this color thing” and i was like “yeah, i am? neat” — like my previous frustrations for whatever reason were just gone and i genuinely enjoyed picking colors and experimenting w/palettes.  i def thank geno for that, bc i think it was just such a solid foundation that it helped me understand how colors relate to each other a bit more.

since then i’ve built on that foundation a bit- we take an intensive oil painting class second sem sophomore year, and color mixing for oils refined my ability to use color, definitely, even when applied digitally (and its why i cringe every time i see that danged “cmyk is better than rbg” post bc it fundamentally misunderstands painting/color on sooo many levels)

there’s still a lot i struggle with though!! eye catching palettes are great but i am definitely not as good with value range, like - i’ve been slowly working on light vs dark and effectively showing dynamic  light in my palettes as well - our life drawing class this semester has been focusing on this as we’ve finally graduated to full color drawings & i can already tell it’s helping a lot!

as for colorists/artists i look to for color:

there’s waay more but here’s a handful off the top of my head - i also look at design a lot w/color, you can see what i mean i think on my aesthetic blog

color is tricky but it’s also really fun, never be afraid to lift palettes from paintings/works you admire and try them for yourself to see how they work, experiment, etc!
