I may be able to help out here- but I need to know if theres any interest in my doing so before I start making a fool of myself. Very Happy

I'll need to see if I can post images here- may need some help in doing that.

If I can make it work, I may try to post some of my roughs, in stages, as a guide to how I build figures from the ground up.

That might be helpful to others here, it might not- Need to see how it develops.

Since I started out not being able to draw at all, and taught myself how to do it-
I may be able to offer insight many other artists doing tutorials have not been able to help with because they rely on instinct and inate ability.
And because of that, can't articulate in a useful way to the less experienced because its so natural to them.
Just a thought.
And this will be subject to time constraints on my end.

Input encouraged.

Okay- now I know how to attach files.

I'll try to put in some of my ball point pen roughs in stages over the next week or so with accompanying text for instruction.

All right then.

I should have some relevant stuff to post sometime soon.

For now-

The first two things I'll talk about here are motion lines, and balance lines.

Anyone here NOT know what these are?

If the answer is that you do not know, first thing you need is how to animate by Preston Blair.
(I don't recall the actual title- but its available in nearly every art store on earth, so its not hard to find.)



Motion lines are a single line you draw through the center of the pic to determine which direction the whole flow of the figure will follow.

The Blair book describes it with words and pics better than I ever could- so look for a copy.
It has lots of other tips, so its a good investment.

Balance lines or line, are a single line you draw top to bottom through the center of a standing character pic to determine if the figure appears balanced or not.

Its really simple, and its important- I learned this one form Christine "smudge" Hanson many years ago as a simple shorthand to determine of a character looked "right" in standing, or if the figure seemed off somehow.

Its really simple, but I don't recall ever seeing this little trick in any books.

(If further elaboration is needed, please ask and I will make up a simple sketch model to use for example, and post it here.)

I don't want to talk down to anyone- I genuinely don't know if everyone looking here already knows and understands these or not- and I figured its as good a place to start as any.


If everyone is good with me so far, I'll move along tomorrow.
(I hope.)

You kidding?? Between you and Maxx, anyone could learn to draw!

Heck, even me! Smile

FTR: if anyone here has never seen IB's art, I heartily recommend you do so. He's on VCL and a couple of other places, and well worth the effort to find!

Tutorials sound like a great idea, provided that they could be done at the leisure of the user/recipient. My time is not exactly my own, so...

...at least to the point where I can dump Sabrina into a Marauder cockpit.

ok, I took some lessons from Maxx:

First Pic: Maxx...I dunno, some flying ace thing...

Second Pic: SkunkFox...well, waiting for the Con...

Now total elapsed time for Maxx to teach me that? 4 hours over a two week period.

Good Teachers Make ALL the Difference!

Well.

I apologise for being away an extended period of time, folks.

I've been up to my eyeballs in commission and other time-valued work, and since I make my living at this, fun things have to come last in my task list.

I will see if I can manage to figure out a step by step guide next, as a beginning point to work from.

I will have to see about attachments too-
As I don't remember at this point whether I can upload them directly through here, or if I need to do them as a link from some other source.


I also need to see if I still have the webspace here that Ricky set up for me however long ago- and leanr how to put things into it.
(I am such a computer gimp...)
