Drawing References and Resources
Updated: Aug 13 2012
EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
---
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
:bulletred: PRIME ADVICE
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc

Worldbuilding in Tales of Berseria
Author: damphyr
Artist: KheilaHirai
There’s something truly magical about losing yourself in an engrossing narrative. It’s amazing how a story can call to the soul, or how we can sometimes feel like we know a fictional character better than the person sitting next to us. How to successfully craft a narrative capable of captivating fans has long perplexed studios and independent creators alike.
While countless have struggled to create this magical formula just once, the T

I love the idea of making her into the shape of a train crossing sign (or similar train traffic signs). Quite brilliant in my opinion! ...

For the most part, I was very much a pencil-paper person, until I got the tablet. If I had all the time in the world, oil would be fun, but it takes so long to dry!

I studied Interactive Multimedia at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and Visual Development at Academy of Art University (AAU).

Interests
Recently just moved into new house and spent past few days cleaning/dusting, etc.
Sadly, our things haven't arrived (won't be until Oct. 4th /5th *bleh*) which means I don't really have a desk to work at. 

My poor back needs a proper chair after spending 3 nights sleeping on the floor, at old home.
