Now Playing Tracks

If Henry can’t handle his frequent changing spells, it can get pretty ugly. 

Henry’s gotten pretty good at keeping his changing to a minimum—this actually represents a “minimum”—with a lot of focus and determination. It’s painful, but he does it to avoid losing his wit to feral werewolf behavior.

So I wanted to draw him in the process of fighting a change.

….NOW you can like it guys. xD

It was just brought to my attention that the post with this link I’d reblogged a little while ago was broken.  I can’t change the link of a reblogged post so here it is again with a working link! The original post was made by http://birdstiality.tumblr.com/, so they get the credit for finding this site

I am currently taking a class called “Visual Communications”, which apparently is the very first foundation class people take when they go to an art school.  The purpose of this class is to train you so that you are confident with your lines and won’t need to scribble too much while sketching.

Our first week’s homework is training on hand stability.  I’ve heard a lot of artists complain that they have “shaky hands” and so when they ink their drawings, it comes out crap, so I thought I’d share my homework with you guys.

  1. Draw a line about 2 inch long, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
  2. Draw a line about half a page long, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
  3. Draw a line from one end of the page to the opposite end, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.

Repeat the above exercise, but with an arc, and then with a wave.

We’re supposed to do this every day before we draw as a warm-up.  Basically just keep drawing lines, arcs, and waves until you fill up an entire 8.5x11 page.  Use felt-tip pens like microns/multiliner/sharpie.  Keep doing this for the rest of your drawing life and your inking will get significantly better.

Here, people who have trouble making smooth lines in their work:  do this, and your penstroke will be as confident as ever.
