4/27/13 I have always been an art lover yet I would give up easily on trying to learn all throughout my life. Now I am attempting to self teach myself with books and online tutorials for the 23409th time since I was born. I just keep giving up and not drawing sometimes for a week to a month and it's really hard not to give up.

untamableshipper: Hi! Do you have any tips on drawing body figures? Especially the length of the legs? And do you have tips on drawing hands? Thanks!

Only way to learn figures is to look at them and draw them.  I’ve taken figure drawing and anatomy for artist classes in addition to drawing a lot.  Take them if you can!  And I fuck up legs more than anything because I don’t draw them enough.  Easy springboard though is searching for Andrew Loomis books.

Same with hands, though there are some fairly easy to describe formulas for hands so I drew up a couple rq

First of all, for probably 90% of the hand poses you’re gonna draw, think fingers like the petals on a pinwheel.  They all curve the same degree, in relation to the previous.
