Foreshortening is an absolute must if you are going to draw comic book characters AND their hands! I think hands are just as important as the eyes as far as expressiveness and communication. This is the third video in my hand series and it explains the concept of foreshortening and how to use it in drawing.
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!
