Hair Tutorials?

Share
balllooon
Hello fellow artistes!

I've been looking at old sketches and have realised that I am still struggling and have stagnated upon drawing hair. Does anyone have any good tutorials kicking around of this bastardy tricky subject? I have already had a gander of the sole previous tag.

Many thanks for any help.

Drawing Tool

Share
Real Cel, Ocelot
Okay, I just needed to share this somewhere and here seemed like a good as place as any (plus it's been really quiet lately).

I found a drawing toy! It's called harmony and you can find it: here. It shades itself using nearby points.

If you're about to move on, don't! This is what I created in about 60 seconds of scribbling around with my mouse, playing around with the tools.
Doodle Sample (Cut for Size)Collapse )

Neat right?

I just figure it's a good excuse to do that figure drawing we've all been putting off and a fun little drawing toy.

Tutorial by Sephiramy (NWS for obvious reasons)

May 4th, 2012

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I thought I'd drop it here in case anyone's interested... I'm collecting funding right now on IndieGoGo to publish a book on business for artists called "Business for the Right-Brained." Here's the table of contents:

1. Introduction
2. Many Roles
3. Products
4. Know Thyself (and Have a Plan)
5. The Day Job
6. Metrics, Part 1: Tracking
7. Metrics, Part 2: Trending
8. What I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Graduated College
9. Enlisting the Aid of Your Inner Customer
10. Time Management
11. Unslimy Marketing
12. Pricing (or, the 99 Cent E-Book)
13. Communication
14. Brand
15. Afterword

It's illustrated by cartoon jaguars, and written humorously, based of columns I've done on LJ on all these topics. It's specifically targeted at creative types: artists, writers, crafters, musiciians, etc.

If you're interested in the book, you can get copies of it (e-versions or print) as backing prizes. We're on Day 3 of the 40-day funding period and we're already over 40% toward our goal. Come check it out if you're interested. :)

BRING IT 2012

First order of business: HAPPY NEW YEAR! I have a feeling it's gonna be a good one so set your sights high. You never know what you can achieve unless you give it a go. Amirite?!

To help get everyone into the go-get-'em spirit I wanted to share a list of resources that I find very helpful in my creative endeavors.


Artsy Poses
Great inspiration and pose references for character designs.

Posemaniacs
Pose reference from computer generated/flayed models. It's a great way to see and understand the relationship between all the muscles of the body without having to attend medical school. :P

Figure & Gesture Drawing Tool
Excellent life drawing resource for those who don't have life drawing classes in their area. You decide if you want to draw people or animals, nudes or clothed, 30 second poses or a 6 hour class. It's ALL good! <3

How To Draw The Head From Any Angle
Just what the title says. :)

3 Point Perspective Tutorial
An easy to follow tutorial on that tricky 3 point perspective. Very handy stuff to know for creating a dramatic background in a painting, comic panel, etc.

Percy Principles Of Art and Composition
Quite possibly the most useful tips about art I've ever come across in my internet wanderings.

Andrew Loomis Art Instruction books
Oldies but goodies and the books are quite large. They range from 130-230 pages. Who can resist free books full of pretty pictures?

FZDSCHOOL's YouTube Channel
Excellent tips and instruction on creating professional concept art.

Paneling, Pacing & Layout in Comics and Manga
A must read for anyone who is thinking about making comics but doesn't know where to get started. <3

How to convert Photoshop brushes for use in other software
Or in my particular case, how to convert Photoshop brushes for use in ancient versions of Photoshop. :D

marcobucci's YouTube Channel
More excellent concept art and painting tips. *u*

ctrl+paint: Digital Painting Simplified
Lots of quick informative videos on how to get the most out of your digital painting programs.



Happy learning everybody! C:

Anyone US artists here have any experience with claiming income from art as Other Income or Hobby Income on their taxes? As opposed to running as a business?

I am experimenting here; several of my books say the paint out of the tube should be usable for some purposes, and the brand I've got (my favorite for gouache, M. Graham), is absolutely not usable straight out of the tube. It's been decades since I've used oils but I don't remember needing to use a medium just to get it on the canvas...!

If you paint with oils, what's your favorite brand? I think some experimentation is in order. :)

I mentioned in my last post that I wanted to update my portfolio with concept art so today I've been watching some very helpful tutorials on YouTube about concept and production art.

Here's one about Shot Set Up. All the tutorials at this channel are incredibly helpful and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to improve their composition skills. Thank you wayword_angel for bringing this YouTube Channel to my attention. *glomp*

So, after watching several videos I decided to go through my old concept doodles and give one a makeover.

I know a lot of authors currently seeking book covers, so if you're an artist and willing to sell your work for that purpose, please add your info so people can find you and pay you money!
