I got asked how I go about making men’s torsos, so I made a really quick (is it even a) tutorial to show how I do things.
I honestly don’t use references that much, granted, I do from time to time, but in my typical drawing I don’t. So I took two pictures and showed you the easiest technique I learned from in high school which is to draw a triangle.
I don’t use this technique and you’ll hardly ever see me using it honestly, because in my own skeletons (when I do use skeletons, I use circles.) Which I made a little sample of above beside the two used reference pictures to show the difference.
I know the pictures are likeStep one: draw triangleStep two: draw the rest of the fucking torso.So sorry about that! I just wanted to show how quickly it can be done.
Mostly, I guess just keep the arms in a small pattern, starting from the shoulder (which should be defined) go thick, thin, thick, thin, thick, thin. And the wrist is the last ‘thin’ part until you make the hands. The elbow is another thin part, and then between the upper arm and shoulder is the third thin part.
Also for those who want to use references to better understand the muscles in mans torso, I highly recommend checking out this website: Quickposes.com
It’s awesome, it’s what I used to find the two reference picture above. It’s even got women on there, and specifics for just hands, or just feet, or just faces.

Um, hi! I was wondering if you could do a mini tutorial on how to colour clouds? (You don't have to do this uvu) I really love your word, I'm inspired by it!

i got multiple questions about this, so i’ll just answer it on this ask

sorry i kept putting it off for so long…

so… i guess i would think of what kind of sky i would want

i like sunsets, so i’ll draw that

image

so i start with the very back color; it’s a dull purple

my intent is to go from purple/dark grey->peach/pink

image

i like to use this fuzzy brush

imagenot sure what to call these… the ‘back’ / ‘dark’ clouds?

i put on random splotches at 40~50% opacity of dark blue around the edges

image

imagei’m going to put my light source at the bottom right, so i put a rusty orange color slightly at 10~20% opacity

imagethen i blended the colors before i started to add more colors

the more you blend, the better the picture will look 8)

imagenow i put my pen at around size 8-10 to put in thin areas of peach/gold where the light will hit at around 60% opacity

image

color it where ever you think it looks good 

image

i like to adjust my colors and edit on sai

on an overlay layer on top of the drawing, i airbrushed so dark blue in at the top left and right

image

then near the end i like to use the combination of lower brightness and higher contrast

i’ll put a video later since my explanation is horrible most of the time…

sorry i put the drawing sideways… it wouldn’t fit

try these drawings for reference…

maybe use the eyedropper and use colors from these?

hope that helps 

this is for the multiple color asks received

Pixiv Resources Tags

randgris:

As a place where a crowd of artists is hanging out, pixiv is filled with tips, tutorials, and resources. But having a deal with its tags-based works arrangement can be a challenge. There is a list of tags labeling useful stuff on pixiv.

メイキング — “making”. Step-by-step records of creating a piece.
講座 — “course”. Tutorials of any kind.
フリー素材 or 素材 — “free material” or “material”. Textures, screentones, stock objects, et cetera.
ブラシ — “brush”.
トーン — “tone”. Screentones.
テクスチャ — “texture”.
パターン and シームレス — “pattern” and “seamless”.
線画 and 塗ってもいいのよ — “lineart” and “it’s okay to color”. Free linearts for coloring. Usually these tags are used together, but give a care to ascertain that “it’s okay to color” is presented.

A browsing tip for non-premium users.
By default, pixiv doesn’t allow to sort items by popularity. But there are specific tags indicating popular works, so you can reach the most popular pieces inside a category instantly by adding to the search query following tags: 10000users入り, 1000users入り, 500users入り. I. e. 講座10000users入り or  素材500users入り.
