Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:
1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.
First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.
So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose. I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.
Scribble it down
start to put on features
put on more stuff
fix stuff again
erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring
Whole head is a gesture!
2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first. You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.
So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.
That’s the simplest explanation I got. Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!
it’s nice to see how others do stuff like this, everyone is different but there’s something to learn from everybody!
YAS GIMME IT ALL especially roger ;u;
this week has been painfully boring outside of AWESOME NEWS but i have to wait for the weekend for it probably and im just sitting here because my friends cant play minecraft with me until this weekend and i am SO BORED

famous last words is actually pretty good! i really like the last two songs, waiting so long and don’t leave me now. i don’t think he’s played crazy in concert since ‘83, as he said he wasn’t happy with how he did the song and wanted to redo it or something like that? O:
