Anonymous asked: I was wondering how you manage to make your faces actually look like the person they are meant to look like? Some of my facial features always end up looking the same, and yours are so perfect... *showers you with love* You are my art guru.

ART GURU.

BUT NO in all seriousness, thank you! You’re a sweetheart! ;O; Proportions are pretty awful to get down when you’re just starting out, and while there are a bunch of ways you can start practicing with it, it’ll be difficult to be absolutely precise. I still struggle with proportions occasionally. Fun fact: I don’t post all of my work. I only post the work that turned out okay aHA. So basically don’t be frustrated when every single piece doesn’t turn out. Here are a few tips.

Let’s use this picture of Laurence and Hugh because why not.

image

They’ve both got eyes, a nose, and a mouth, so why do they look different?

image

These lines are the generic way of mapping out where to put things together. I used this when I was starting out and it’s a helpful way of getting your hand and wrist to work together. At this point they both nearly look the same. I say this a lot, but I think it’s important: shape is what puts a drawing together.

Compare features of the face to help you figure out placement.

For example:

image

The bottom of his ear lines up right to the middle of his nostril. His tear ducts line up right at the corners of his mouth. Then you can get super technical and say, oh, the outer corner of his eye lines up with that fold in his collar and then from there you can see other things like the approximate distance from the edge of his mouth to that connecting line from the eye to the collar. They don’t meet so his mouth is smaller than the width of his eyes, etc, etc. Whatever works, man.

This is a favorite technique of mine so lemme use another example:

image

Eventually you get to the point where most of your proportional accuracy will come from just looking. You will eventually adjust your eye to see what makes a person who they are by the shape of their features.

image

Laurence has narrow, oval shaped eyes, while Hugh has more of a diamond shape. Not everyone has perfect almond shaped eyes. You can capture an entire character personality through their eyes alone, so shaping them out is extremely important.

The way you draw your lines is also important. Sharp and smooth lines will give your drawing personality. Reveals the character, in a sense.

image

Other things to consider: the shape of the nose.

image

Mads’ is flat and goes down in a steady slope, while Hugh’s juts out in a smooth, almost concave curve.

SHAPES SHAPES SHAPES. Use shapes and structure to find proportion.

image

I did a lot more than I anticipated omg. Oh gosh and I have a feeling I kinda just rambled and didn’T MAKE ANY SENSE AH. Let me know if you need more help or if I was speaking gibberish I am so bad at putting my thoughts into words aHHHH. But gosh I hope this was at least vaguely helpful. You’re a darling and thank you for your kind words!

Good luck on your artistic endeavors! /hugs

Damn that’s helpful

I was…a little obsessed with these games when I was young.  Since then I’ve grown apart from Metal Gear and games in general…until I played the latest game, sucking me right back in for more. :’(

Climate change is here, but so are we. 
 
To prove it, than 1,000 organizations have joined forces to launch the People’s Climate March, the biggest mobilization in climate history. This weekend, from New York to New Zealand, hundreds of thousands of people will band together to send one clear message: it takes everyone to change everything.  
  
As millions flood the streets, many more will flood social networks to form the biggest virtual march ever to show solidarity. Around the world, people will post short videos showing their personal commitment to “walk the walk” on climate while calling on world leaders to do the same.
 
Be part of the most critical moment in climate history. #WalkTheWalk with us!
 
Joining the virtual march is quite simple. Film a 6-10 second video of yourself walking/marching/swimming/wheeling — try to be as creative as possible and be sure to mention why you’re serious about climate action!  Post your video on networks like Vine, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, using the hashtag #WalktheWalk and including a link to walkforclimate.com
After you’ve posted, you can explore the #walkthewalk hashtag to see how others are walking the walk. All week, you’ll see your friends, celebrities, members of Congress and even Fortune 500 companies #walkthewalk with you as they add their very own videos and messages!
 
Now, it’s your turn. Stand with the biggest climate moment in history by adding your own video using the hashtag #WalkTheWalk!
 
Together, no matter where we are, we will show world leaders that it’s time to do more than just talk about the climate crisis - it’s time to #WalkTheWalk.

Doing this Sunday.

The Fifth Element artbook is now also available for ordering.

Many thanks to everyone who came by at SPX! I had a blast talking to you all and I’m sad that it’s over! It’s a truly inspiring show, and I’m so, so proud of Sam for winning an Ignatz award this year.
