More Tutorial Videos

I just barely started getting into my tutorial videos this summer. 2019, however, will be a new start and that means – MORE VIDEOS! I’m currently working on a series of videos to help  anyone wanting to draw in the comic book style art as well as how to draw hands. Everyone, myself included, could always use a little help with hands. I’m also continuing with my sketch series because sketching helps improve drawing immeasurably!

Stay tuned and keep drawing!

New How to Draw Hands Video

A lot of people have trouble drawing hands. Unfortunately, the only way to get better at something is to practice. Practice makes better but never perfect. In fact, perfect art doesn’t exist so stop trying to make it! If you really want to improve on your drawing skills, set up a schedule and keep to it. Make sure to draw at least 30 minutes a day. Stop criticizing yourself and just draw!

My new hands video explains how to draw, ink, and color the hand in a clenched position with the thumb up. Check it out!

New Worksheet!

I did it! I made a worksheet to practice hatching lines. I decided to take a random picture off the Internet to make a worksheet. I was going to make a “My Little Pony” -type horse but I changed my mind. The horse I did make is good for both directional and small hatching. Maybe I’ll make another video showing my own hatching with it. In the mean time. . . PRACTICE HATCHING!

Venom Inking Video

So I did publish the Tucson Comic con video on my YouTube channel just because it uploaded a heckuva lot faster than WordPress. If you want to see some really FANTASTIC cos-play they you should really click on the link.

Now on to my next video. This is the reboot of Venom I did for the Tucson Comic con. I emphasized the symbiote a lot more in this version since the movie never really touched on any Spiderman stuff. It isn’t narrated or anything like that just funny subtitles and music.

Finally, A New Video!

It’s been over a month since my last video. I made a worksheet for my sketch series. It’s the nutcracker again! This video focuses on mark making, specifically – hatching. You can create both value and texture with different mark making. I made a worksheet to go with the video so you can download it and practice your hatching. Any type of cartooning or comic book art usually has some sort of hatching.

Here is the worksheet!

Sketch Challenge! Elements of Art

So a few weeks ago I did a video about sketching where you can and finding what you can to sketch. It truly doesn’t matter what you draw as long as you set a consistent schedule and stick to it! Becoming good at drawing doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a lot of practice, which is why I made that video. Have fun with it while you are learning!

This video is a sketch challenge. I chose three elements of art at random and then drew one object emphasizing each different element. I liked the shape and line drawings the best. I think I could have done more with the texture drawing.

Don’t know what to sketch? Check out this video for some ideas!

Foreshortening!

I’ve been making videos about sketching and supplies but I couldn’t decide what my subject would be for my main tutorial videos. Then it hit me! Foreshortening. I’m going to do a series about foreshortening to make your comic book pages really pop. I know that when I first started drawing, my figures were very block-ish. It wasn’t until I really embraced foreshortening that my characters began to look more natural.

My first body part will be the hands. Hands are so expressive. I think they are a close second to they eyes as far as conveying mood and atmosphere. I’m thinking maybe a 4 or 5 part series. Anyway, stay tuned!
