How I remove white backgrounds from scans.

I can never get the other method to work that I have seen here on some tutorial blogs. So I found another way which is much more simple in my opinion. I am not sure if it will work on later versions of photoshop. I am using the cs5 version. 

Hope this helps someone

Speaking of different body shapes. These are all basically peak human bodies. 

How come 99% of them don’t conform to what the entertainment industry tells us is the perfect body?

Time to bring back this body reference sheet!

One of the better body references I’ve ever seen.  All of these people are ridiculously fit, operating in the top echelons of their sports world-wide.  But there’s a vast array of body types, and types of fitness.

I know this is off point, but Table Tennis dude is my favorite. 

Also a good reminder that everyone on earth looks ridiculous wearing shoes while in their underwear.

All right, here’s my contribution to the art tutorial infographic world, part 1 of 2.  I’ve noticed that even in professional illustration, so often the humans and environments and armor and whatnot is really, really great— correct anatomy, lighting, proportions, like ‘wow this is fantastic WAIT what is up with that HORSE?’

I suspect two things;

First is that I spend 15 hours a day, 365 days a year looking, touching, handling, and just generally being around horses.  

Second is that most people do not.  

Artists have lost touch with their connection to horses as contemporary society has lost touch with them.  Generally, we don’t have that constant presence of horses in our lives that previous generations did, as horses aren’t part of the everyday landscape any more.  They don’t work the fields, they don’t cart the goods, they don’t deliver the mail or transport you to the next town down the road.

However, we still see horses all the time— in movies, books, illustration, ads and logos, we are presented with the image of horses all the time.  So we assume ‘yes, I have seen horses often and I know what they look like.’  Because of our exposure, we as artists don’t always feel like we need to heavily reference the animals as if we were drawing something we don’t see everyday (say, like elephants or giraffes or sea cucumbers).  Our brain just kind of plugs in ‘horse shaped’ and we go with that.

And I suspect that ends up being where a lot of these common mistakes occur.  Dogs are familiar, but we can easily find a dog to draw from live, to see the way the shapes of its face are put together in 3-dimensions.  Cats, humans, birds… if we venture just a little ways outside our studios (or in some cases, inside), we can find live models to study easily.  

You can’t really do that with horses.  They’re a commodity, sequestered away behind fences on private farms and shuttered away in barns.   So few people really get the chance to be up close and have that hands-on experience to really learn how a horse is put together.

So here’s some things, based on my own experience both drawing and working with horses, that might help you if you find yourself needing to draw one for yourself.

The approach I took might be more complicated than absolutely necessary, but I tried to present the subject of ‘how to draw horses’ a little differently than I’ve seen it done before.  I hope someone finds it understandable, and more importantly, helpful!

If you share this, please don’t delete my commentary about it above. Thanks :3

Dem horse butts yo

horsies ;o;

BLESS THIS POST.

I grew up loving horses, and disappointed in lots of horses that I saw in animation. 

Horses are beautiful animals, with their own anatomy.  Yes, they are hard  to draw.  Horses were the first thing I really learned how to draw well, and then I kind of moved on from there.  But they have their own anatomy, its beautiful, and interesting.  Theres a lot going on.  I always get kind of sad when I see beautiful stuff with just plain bad horse anatomy.  Especially the ears, horses have such pretty ears.  Not triangles.  They also have a lot of body language and they can be very expressive. 

So yeah. Horses are great!  Study that sheyit.

I feel bad for people that never got to pet a horse. They are very soft.

Cheat-sheet for drawing girl legs sideways.  This is mostly from my own observation, and using the straight/curve principal for appeal in drawing.
