jesus mario what is your damage



hi-res non-cropped version: part I | part II 

They asked me for a body tutorial, but first a bit of must-to-reads:

  • This tutorial is NOT for beginners
  • Yes, I made this tutorial BUT I’m in no position to say this is 100% correct. This is how I draw, these are my tips that solely adapts to my drawing style and I’m sorry if there are anatomic mistakes. I know I do a lot of them. 
  • When I was cropping this I noticed a lot of grammar mistakes, I’m so sorry I don’t have the time to correct them.
  • I don’t think there is any absurdity here but if I made some big and harming anatomy error please tell me and I will change/delete it
  • I never attend art school or art course, as I said on the tutorial. What I can do is self-taught, that’s why there’s so many errors.
  • the most important: USE REFERENCE IMAGES WHEN DRAWING! If they are real photos and not other drawings is better. This is the truth, you have to copy pictures in order to improve. That doesn’t mean you have to trace them, but observe them until you are able to reproduce it. Especially if you are drawing semi-realistic bodies like me! 

Hhhhh I’m not good with tutorials sorry very much (??)



HAHA the dick album art for No Love Deep Web would be the one not to fucking let me change it as I’m organising my music artwork  

Ugh my parents’ taste in music is horrible. Such plebs. If only they listened to neo classical avant garde progressive dream sludgecore with a hint of a modern melodic death jazz crossover. #misunderstood #smhhh

meth-grippin replied to your post “Browsing through duckcore in the hopes of finding something new to…”

Tbh nothing sounds heavy to me anymore after hearing Black Sheep Wall and Nails

Damn straight. G’way with that down tuned chugfest shit and over polished  Whitechapel rip-off vox. 

In hindsight, I should have expected djeathcore on there. Maybe the communists are invading soon and I’m overly disappointed by not hearing what I wanted to hear lol

Browsing through duckcore in the hopes of finding something new to listen to lol. Desperate. Come across some Russian band, description says they’re incredibly heavy. Ok. Caught my attention. I’m expecting something along the lines of Admiral Angry and Black Sheep Wall here. Good lead. Open it up. It’s just your standard djeathcore stuff. *sigh* Wow exceptionally heavy indeed.

And his is the fastest of those slow ass animals

Anonymous asked: Do you have any recommendations on books about perspective/composition/landscape drawings? The books I have only mentions them in very few pages but I really feel I need to practice this, also thank you all for running this great blog. It is a great help!


Hello anon!
I’d like to make followers aware that we have a [book] tag which recommends various books. I will ad that this tag isn’t as lush as many of our anatomy tags, and as it is just a little tag for tie time being, will need time to grow to suit your specific needs.

Coincidentally, I just so happen to be sitting next to a perspective obsessed artist, so I’m going to give her the wheel for this question!

Okay, Hello.
It really depends what you want to do with the perspective (what your subject matter is). If you’re drawing in a graphic style, a painterly style, a traditionally accurate style.
I’ll assume you want to simply draw accurate perspective, so if you are learning perspective to get elements ‘right’ in Landscape - outside / countryside traditional, then I personally recommend the book

Creating Textured Landscapes with pen, ink and watercolour’.
[Amazon link, which includes ‘look inside’ preview]

If you are wanting to learn about perspective to know how it works in general…
(meaning) how to create both linear perspective and how to draw in circular perspective then go for the book
Vanishing point’.
[Amazon link, which includes ‘look inside’ preview]

It is important recognise the style you are working in
(i.e. Graphic perspective, painterly perspective, accurate perspective).
and then finding a tutorial on you-tube or finding a perspective book that is going to lend to that. 
YouTube is GREAT for free and helpful tutorials.

Best of luck,

In addition to this AnatomicalArt has two useful tags for you.
[Perspective Tag]  and [Composition Tag]
which may also help you in your efforts.

Now to move onto composition!

Composition is all about how your eye travels around the page.
Composition is ALL about, is trying to get the audience to stare at a picture for longer.
A well composed picture will take your eyes on a journey, it will either…

  • Walk you through the entire picture.
    (How long can you make this journey last?)

  • or by highlighting the most important aspect of the picture.
  • OR! Createing an overall shape
    (usually eater a circle, square or triangle)
    Triangles are often considered to be the most important shape once can create in a picture.

The Triangle:image


The Circle:

The Square:


Any perspective book will also touch on the idea of composition, so perches of a perspective book is a great idea!

Photography books, surprisingly, may be of more help to you with creating composition then art books. Composition is just such a huge part of photography.
I recommend you take a look at the Photography Composition books in the bookstore next time you visit one. I’m sure you’ll find one that catches your eye.

Perspective takes a LONG time to learn, so do not become distraught if the learning is slow.

Composition is a HARD thing to accomplish, and of course it is impossible to create a composition so perfect your audience will look at your piece forever.

Artists have been studying both composition and perspective for generations and never gotten it ‘perfect’, it is all a matter of opinion, but the more you research, the more you practice, the more you know the more you’ll be able to accomplish! This post only scratches the surface of what perspective and composition has to teach you.

Just look at pictures you love, practice different things as often as you can, and you can only get better!
Good luck in your studies!
