this has probably been said before, but the "drawing cycle" that you added was a stroke of tutorial genius. XD talk about comic relief...

very helpful and amusing tutorial, friend :D

Very good tutorial! Loved the pictures XD

Reminded me of a final project in my freshman seminar class where I took pictures of my face in different stages of rage for my "things that piss me off" topic XD

Strayed from the subject at hand, which is:

This tutorial is awesome. Thank you.

hmm of the cycle my sketching goes like this:
-calmly and sensibly explain to the paper that it needs to behave
-continue negotiations
(then i like to add in my own)
-stab paper violently until it cooperates
-erase/draw until the point where you can't even see what you're doing anymore
-leave and find zen...or some form of zen
-come back...start over
-end up doing whole thing with tablet because too lazy to get paper when the composition/pose finally strikes you

thats me xD haha altho i do like to get things out on paper, i press WAY to hard...its a terrible habit xD trying to stop doing that...
anyways even tho this is almost 2 years old, still very helpful ;) and amusing xD

:rofl: I love the cycle there. I'll have to remember your method of "calmly and sensibly remind(ing) the paper that is needs to behave itself" :laughing:

Thanks for this tutorial :)

Ah, no, not a typo, but it would've sounded weird for me to say "I'll have to remember your method of 'calmly and sensibly remind the paper that it needs to behave itself'"...at least it sounded weird when I said it, but it didn't sound weird in the tutorial?

Now I'm just confusing myself XD Feel free to disregard this, haha

have you ever drawn a few messed-up pictures, and frankinstiened different parts if it together? I HAVE! It can be very fun to take random bodypart scetches and paste 'em together.
