Notes on Character Design ↗

Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don’t - I have a lot to learn), I’m not sure I could communicate them effectively. I’ve gathered some thoughts and ideas here, though, in case they’re helpful.

First, some…

~One month later and they’re finally done

I’ve been reading Ava’s Demon for over a year now and I am in love with how everything is playing out. I felt it was about time I actually made some fanart for what quickly became my favorite comic. <3

- —If for some odd reason you feel the need to repost, please leave a link back to both this post and the Ava’s Demon website, thank you!— -

Httyd/Atla crossover in which the Fire Nation are Vikings, Druk is a Night Fury, Ozai and Azula don’t exist (so Zuko’s dad is Ikem) and more importantly: NOBODY DIES

And that’s a wrap! Make sure you look at the pictures in bigger size… I’m on my tablet and it won’t let me post the photos in one-column style. I’ll fix it tomorrow when I get home. (Can’t wait!)

I hope you like it, and thanks for watching. This comic might have ended, but there’s more HTTYD stuff coming from me for sure. :)

On DeviantArt (in the one-column style it’s supposed to be):

Quick reminder, that we often try to catch up with some super artist that isn’t even real. You know, that one who can do absolutely anything, learnt it within a week, doesn’t need any sleep and is working on like a hundred successful projects at the same time. We’re being all sad and frustrated because we think we’re no good compared to that one super artist. But then, who is?

So, I started this little exercise to get myself out of writer-block, and ended up writing a ficlet with Nod and MK as superheroes, and I decided not to finish just so I could draw these, and suddenly I was kicking myself out of artblock.

MK is a benevolent crime-fighter with the ability to manipulate electricity, thanks to some really hardcore SLI phenomenon. She calls herself the Red Bolt (or rather, someone came up with the name and it stuck). Nod’s more of an enhanced superhuman created by the Army, kinda like Captain America (hence the armor), except he was sort of dying for some reason. His codename is Hummingbird and he totally hates it. Then, there’s Ronin who’s still General, Tara who’s, uh, I dunno, she takes important decisions and people in the Army actually listen to her??? Nim (who’s totally black because of the Bigswap AU sew me) is the scientist in charge of Nod, because he kind of lives in a Government facility (much to his mother’s woe).

I kind of went overboard with this, bUT MAN IT FEELS GOOD TO BE ABLE TO DRAW QUALITY STUFF AGAIN.

10 typical perspective errors


electricalice:

Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.

1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point

image

Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most common mistake. It’s probably due to either carelessness or really not having understood the basic of perspective. I encourage you to go back and find some basic tutorial for this.

Anyway, be ALWAYS careful about where to ‘send’ your lines, they NEED to go towards the correct vanishing point or it will just look awkward. Double check if necessary.

And always, ALWAYS use a ruler.

If your style requires lines that are a bit less geometrical (as mine do, I have a style of inking that’s sketchy so ‘perfect’ lines drawn with a ruler usually don’t fit well in the picture) use a ruler anyway for the pencils and then ink later by freehand. At least you’ll have correct guidelines underneath.

image

For traditional drawing be sure you have a ruler and be sure to use it for each one of your lines.

Modern drawing software will help you a lot with this if you draw directly on computer: painting software such as Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 4EX or 5 have perspective tools that will automatically snap your lines towards the vanishing point.

Friendly reminder that Dreamworks created a character who not only displayed everything that’s wrong with Nice Guy Syndrome, but also turned into a supervillian when he was friend zoned.
