If you enjoyed my quick cheat sheet from the other day, I expanded on it and detailed the entire process of drawing faces without faces using Paper by 53. Let me know if this is useful or if you want to see more tutorials.
Oh and while I’m at it… wanted to say thanks to everyone who has liked or reblogged my drawings. It means tons. And for those who took the time to leave replies many thanks too! I wish Tumblr made it easier to comment back instead of having to leave a fan mail message…
Starting to do Paper by 53 work in progress captures again. Just happens to be my first portrait using the new zoom tool that was recently added to the app. If you haven’t gotten a chance to update or see it in action, here you go.
Sebastiansdrawings asked if I had any techniques or lessons to share from my tiger drawing. Firstly, there are people much more talented than me that could help you more. I’m leaving some fur links at the bottom.
Secondly, drawing fur is much the same as drawing hair. Use 3 or more color tones to create depth and texture. Mbbradbury made a great hair tutorial! Also, Mademistakes wrote an article about how to use Paper that is excellent!
Thirdly, I wasn’t that happy with my approach to the matted fur, so take that tip with a grain of salt. Use your own judgement and taste to see what works for you.
Last, but not least, thank you all for the comments and kind words! I really appreciate it!
I’m a day early, but figured it would be fun to do some illustrations on my iPad for Star Wars Day. Here are a few scenes from the original trilogy to celebrate. Maybe I’ll do a few more tomorrow if I have the time…
