New Coloring Page – One Punch Man

REFLECTIVE PRACTICE

This coloring page goes along with a new YouTube video about reflective practice. A few months back I created a post about the three types of practice – inspirational, intentional, and reflective. I think the most effective and the best way to improve is to use reflective practice. That is, get out your arsenal of adjectives and describe your art. Use constructive words to describe the lines, shapes, and values. How are they working together? How are they not working together? Is there anything that can be changed or modified to make the image “read” better? These are the questions of reflective practice. An artist can use this information to focus areas of improvement and make practice more meaningful. This is what makes reflective practice so powerful and one of the studying artist’s most useful tools.

How to Draw a Comic Book Face: Female

When I first started drawing women they didn’t exactly look like women. They kinda looked like they had taken too many steroids. It was awful. I did a little research and discovered there are a few things an artist can do to make their character more feminine. Follow these few simple steps and your female characters will look more like women.

How to Draw Comic Book Character Hair

I just realized I did a bunch of tutorials about drawing the face but never made one on hair! Imagine that? How could I forget? This is my latest YouTube tutorial about that very subject, to make up for lost time. I use a worksheet that I made for this video which you can download and practice drawing hair on your own. When you get more confidence, you can use the worksheets less and less. Good luck!

New Coloring Page – Captain Marvel!

Okay, the last two coloring pages have been men – Colossus and Ice Man. So let’s draw a female lead character this time. I had a blast drawing Iceman and will probably use him for a shading tutorial for Friday! In the meantime, I redid a commission I drew during one of my comic conventions. I can’t remember who asked for Captain Marvel but I think I drew this when the movie came out. The first draft was okay but I felt I could do better with the pose and the proportions. Enjoy!
