Character development: march-july
The development (thus far) of a potential project I want to work on, but who knows if it’ll actually go anywhere. Not only is it like 100% clear how the characters have developed (just take a look at the INCREDIBLY rough sketches i first did), but how my style and ability has as well. Just in 5 months!
check this out! i just did the last sketches just a few minutes ago (the orange post-it is covering a really shitty attempt).
I’m nearly done with my sketchbook (5 pages left!) and when I’m done, I think I’ll post a huge reflective of all the stuff that ended up in here over the past year. I’ll even maybe include all the super shitty things I’ve done as well.
hi everybody, recently i’ve been seeing a lot of people around the internet talking about experiencing drawing related pain
it feels like the right time to publicly recommend this extremely informative and well-researched minicomic by kriota willberg. i carry a copy with me everywhere and tell friends about it all the time because it is super helpful and has helped me unlearn some bad drawing habits and learn plenty of healthy new ones!
in 60 pages it covers
- drawing positions that lessen stress on your muscles
- a wide variety of easy exercises (and sample routines)
- small lifestyle changes you can make to keep healthy
- and when to tell if prevention isn’t enough and you need to see a doctor
you can buy it HERE and HERE. it’s very thorough, the author knows a lot about muscles and the body as well as about the specifics of drawing and it really shows. even if you haven’t experienced drawing pain yet, integrating this stuff into your routine is a good way to start taking preventative measures
stay safe and healthy everyone!
people i know are getting married and i’m super excited because weddings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
