This handsome fellow stars in the new lesson I’m bringing out for HTDC. It’s all about drawing your characters up to the correct size. That also includes characters beyond the typical Super Hero stereotype!
When I began learning how to draw, it didn’t take long to realise that proportions were the first thing I needed to get right. They’re foundational to the drawing.
The anatomy of your character, the fancy getup, and intricately rendered details – it’s all thrown on top of their proportions.
Funnily enough, even after all these years, there are still times where I’ll make a mismeasurement here or there.
And it’s a big deal!
Because as you probably well know, bad proportions can throw your illustration completely out of whack if you don’t catch them early on.
That’s why for the last month or so, I’ve been working on a new fundamentals lesson for you… focusing on exactly that - Proportions.
But here’s the thing. This lesson must be as comprehensive as possible. Because after you watch it, I want your proportional qualms to be solved once and for all.
So I’m gonna need your input here…
When it comes to proportions, what do you struggle with the most? What do you feel your biggest sticking point is?
If you’ve already got your proportions down pat, what suggestions or exercises would you give beginners just starting out?
Let me know in the comments below.
Enjoy the weekend guys and gals, -Clayton
