Lychee's Reference Pile

This blog is for reblogging any photos, illustrations, tutorials, etc, I find to use for drawing reference later. This will mostly consist of useful stuff for figure drawing and clothing. For simplicity I'm shoving most of this stuff into a handful of tags

-Tutorials (Step by step instructional imgage)
-Anatomy (Either anatomy illustrations or artistic nudes, and occasionally pose references)
-Fashion (Anything clothing relevant)
-Pretty Things (A sort of miscellaneous category- things with good composition, color usage, people I want to draw, etc)

figure 1: head drawings by Andrew Loomis, 1956

figure 2: women’s head designs can be generated by the same methods, they don’t have to all look very nearly the same

Some food for thought for drawing women and avoiding drawing a single female face.  Too often artists seem to be afraid to give women big noses or lines or other distinguishing features, and we end up with the same face on all the characters.  I’ve been browsing a lot of genderswap art lately and I’ve noticed that when male characters with large noses, thin faces, wrinkles, or other features get genderswapped, they end up with small noses, round faces, and no wrinkles, and they no longer look distinct.  So. just some references and a reminder that women’s faces have all sorts of different features, and you don’t need to just have small cute features with no wrinkles to have a character look female.

As per request (thanks, singingrabbitskull!), I did a half-tutorial, half-sporadic notes on how I generally render basic expressions.

There’s already a lot of cool tutorials that exist on how to do expressions, so I tried to just look at a lot of really minor details that I’ve used but haven’t seen commonly passed down.

required disclaimer: this is just how I go about it, feel free to ignore bits, steal bits, do whatever you want with them. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions scream at my inbox!
