Thanks to reflectuousechoes for telling us about this tutorial!

Mostly reblogging because I realize the ball with scars / veins is very strange indeed!

DID SOMEONE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT CLOTHES WRINKLES (those things I always have a hard time drawing??)
Oh my god
oh shit that’s a lot easier than how I draw them
dafuq…where has this been all my life D:
MY LIFE IS A LIE
Learning anatomy drawing is important. Period. Whatever you plan to draw and however you plan to draw it you need to have an idea of what it actually looks like, practice in realism, before you plan to move on to creative interpretation.
Here are examples of all different kinds of athletic body types to illustrate the importance of knowing what sort of “built” look you will need to go for when drawing and designing a character. Not all fit is the same fit and it is so hard to find adequate variety when looking for references. These were linked by a talented comic artist Nina Matsumoto.

A good sampling of her art can be found here http://spacecoyote.deviantart.com/
I would like to bring this back around to my blog now that more people are around, I guess.
This is an incredibly good body reference that shows even athletic builds can vary to a really impressive extent depending not only on the individual, but what they’ve trained themselves to be great at.
Look at how different and fantastic these bodies are. Humans are just amazing.
I like how my body type is not represented here.
Oh, right. That’s because I’m not a professional athlete, and therefore I am just simply “fat”.
no no this is specifically a comparison between professional athletic body types, not a comparison between all human body types
this is specifically meant to illustrate the physiological differences between people who have trained their body for some specific activity
it’s not at all meant to represent all body types that people have, it never claimed to
I’m glad this is here, I really kneed this
where was this when i kneeded it in my last drawing?

Gradient Tutorial- Right Click + New tab to see it bigger
This is something I try to stress to everyone. Improved my understanding of shading tenfold.
I still suffer from this when I forget to lay down a light map/paint in a rough gradient before I start working. This is helpful!
I can’t believe how much even just reading this helps lskdfjdsklg definitely gonna remember to keep this in mind.
I’ve seen many many artists, including myself, being able to draw “okay” hands - but the thumb always ends up weird like this:
In many MANY examples of hands, the thumb is drawn like it was this big lump of “something” lacking one or any joints at all.
Hands in general, are more or less a big bunch of joints, so if you don’t keep that in mind when drawing, you might end up with weird fingers. SO PAY ATTENTION TO THE GODDANG JOINTS OKAY?!
NOW THIS IS HOW IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE:
(to get the book as pdf: JUST GOOGLE “BRIDGMAN CONSTRUCTIVE ANATOMY” and you’ll find the website with the download link)
In order to easier draw the thumb (and the rest of the hand as well) is to exaggerate the shapes and features. That is the “key” to understand how anatomy can vary so much but still follow the same basic construction:
Aaaaand here’s some more examples of DELICIOUS THUMBS:
NOW GO AND DRAW THUMBS!
DISCLAIMER: Baby-hands and hands on more overweight people tend to not be as “bony” as in my examples shown here. But they are still divided in the same pattern, but slightly rounder.
