Hello! First of all, I would like to thank all of you guys for making THIS happen :
600+ likes / re-blog is too much ;u; Greatly appreciated! Hope you enjoy this entry as well! 🙂
Sketchpad : RHODIA Uni-blank
Mechanical Pencil for Sketching : PILOT ENO 0.7 in blue
This is how I sketch my standard character a.k.a ‘I’m too lazy to think of a creative expression / pose’.
I always start with the face with these guidelines / framework. Always check the proportions before drawing in the details!
Cat smile shaped lips!
I draw the ends a bit longer for a winged eyeliner / false lashes look.
I always make the lower lashes stand out to give off a romantic / innocent / moe look.
Lightly shaded eye corners for a subtle smokey eye-make look.
Straight brows for a more innocent look.
I always leave a mark to indicate where I will start drawing the hair.
From that point, I start by drawing big chunks of hair then gradually adding some thinner lines for depth.
Again, before getting into the details, make sure the body framework is proportionate to the head.
Circles represent the joints and lines represent the limbs.
Thigh gap /frustration in life. hehe, kidding.
Once you’re happy with the framework, start adding clothes, etc. It’s a lot easier to work now that you can see sort of what’s supposed to be underneath all that garment.
That’s it for now, hope you will find this useful! 🙂 If you have any suggestions / requests, feel free to leave a comment on my Disqus box below !
