How did u get so good at drawing guns, and how long have u been drawing them?
hi mtv im blair and welcome to my art blog. i post my own art here and also reblog references for later use so ya theres that
I come from Earth, a planet of outlaws. My name is Peter Quill. There's one other name you may know me by. Star-Lord.
Anonymous asked you:How did u get so good at drawing guns, and how long have u been drawing them?Thank you for the compliment! I wouldn’t call myself an expert on the matter yet (I’m still doing my best to learn!), but drawing guns is actually not as difficult as most people would think-I threw together a little how-to that more or less illustrates my thought process when tackling guns (semi-automatic pistols, sorry). This is just bare bones information however, for there are many different makes and models of guns that won’t always comply with steps 2 and 3 of this tutorial (the example I drew is based off a SIGp228). But that’s where the internet and picture references come in to help fill in the blanks!Funny thing is that I avoided drawing guns like the plague up until last year when my buddy finally took me shooting and I think I developed some sort of mutual understanding with them and decided to learn how to draw them good!
HANDS FOR DRAWING
I’ve known about this tool for years and I’m still constantly recommending it to people or finding that some people don’t know of it and let me tell you, it is a LIFESAVER!
I’m sure you’ve heard of Posemaniacs before, but did you know they have a bunch of rotatable hand poses, a rotatable head, male torso and foot!?
This ‘handy’ (HAH! /slaps knee) tool has helped me so many times, so go check it out and utilize this baby before the site dies one day. :(
(Or better yet; donate to Posemaniacs to keep it alive!)
Have fun and go practice those hands!
Karina!!! I had a question... I absolutely love your storyboarding style: easy, concise, and clear! I was wondering when you start drawing the face, do you start with the eyes or the outline of the face?? Thanks again! I really just follow your style!
Heyyy there Ashby! Ahh thank you! When I draw faces I usually like to focus on the eyes first if it’s an acting piece and then draw the rest of the face to match the acting or attitude in the eyes (especially in a C.U. shot). For wide shots I usually do the gesture of the full body and then go back in to do the face. The face by then is usually an oval with the eyes on top of it :). Thank you for your question! I hope this helps
