MANGA to REALISTIC: Part NINE by FOERVRAENGD MANGA to REALISTIC: Part NINE by FOERVRAENGD
Edit: fixed some typos!

Another thing: The reason why I have the title "Face your Fears" is actually a note to myself. I have a small fear for people with mental/psychical disabilities and I hope this tutorial will help me overcome this ridiculous fear of approaching these people.

I have absolutely no intention to offend anyone with psychical or mental disabilities, if there's something in this tutorial that you find extremely wrong and offensive, I appreciate if you would point it out.

I will not tolerate any kind of trolling or disrespectful comments about any kind of people mentioned in the tutorial.
This applies to any other tutorial as well.

Could you please make a tutorial on burn scars? I have a character in a story with burns on his face, but I can't find any good tutorials. I'll post a picture of him when it's done.

I love this. I live in a country where you see people with birth defects every day, just when you're driving along in your own neighbourhood. People try and shut out this kind of thing from their lives, because they can't face reality. You know you're brave if you can go so far as to draw characters with deformities. So I thank you for this. :happycry:

I suffered from Keloid scaring for a few years after I got my ears pierced, I was teased at school and I never really talked to anyone or tied my hair up, they were so painful, and finally I had them removed in February... the operation cost $700. I went through all that because the woman that pierced my ears didn't wash her hands D:<

Love this tutorial, thank you for putting it up :D

I also have a small but ridiculous fear of birth defects. I've never seen the unfortunate children in real life, just in photos, and I'd turn away when I see them. You, you remind me that I should be ashamed for doing such thing.

And though I have many scars myself, I'm still afraid of them. Especially keloid scars. But most of all, I'm terrified of burns and burn scars. This is embarrassing, but I don't even have the guts to look up references for those, though I know I'd have to draw them one day.

Thank you for making this. I have a little brother with Downs Syndrome and I am practicing how to draw anatomy. This has inspired me to attempt to draw a portrait of him. Thanks for not forgetting those less fortunate than you and me.

Very good realistic drawing guide. As I was born with a cleft palate, I can imagine how difficult they are to draw. My upper lip is much thinner than the bottom, and where there scar is located is higher than the rest of my upper lip, due to stitching raising it, etc.

I must say, having a phobia of handicapped people is really common. I grew up with an older adopted brother who has severe autism - he does some pretty weird things- and yet I'm still extremely uncomfortable around mentally disabled people. I'm sure it's an instinct.

Yeah, fear for the unknown and uncommon and differs from what is considered "normal" is probably an instinct. (Like homophobia) But luckily this "fear" can be "cured" more or less.

How do you do burn scars? Those seem to be different then regular scars.

FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
burn damage is pretty tricky, since they can vary depending on how you got the burn and where on the body it damaged. I'd suggest looking at references for this, the cosmetic/costume category (i think that's the right name) on dA has a lot of high-quality and very realistic photographs of makeup that looks like different kinds of body damage, including burned skin!

Alright, thank you! Another question [before I stop bugging you] How do you make someone look...plain? I know how to make pretty people, not sure about the other. It's harder to get references for plain since most people don't want to photograph their plain selves

:iconfoervraengd:
FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
You mean plain as in having a neutral but relaxed expression? That is hard, but I think that one thing that i've read somewhere is that when we are not resting our eyes on something (aka "gazing out in space"), the eyes are looking a bit downwards and not straight forward. So the neutral position of the iris/pupil is pointing a bit downwards. Maybe that might help you out?

FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
Oh, you mean average people?
Well, that's a very very very very hard question. Considering that we all have different taste in what is attractive. If you think that you only draw pretty people, then you might need to work more on diversity in facial shape, fat/skinny and age. best way is to actually look at how people look like, different noses and everything.

There are actually many forms of CP. I have Mild CP so I act like a normal person, but I have a couple of problems like my brain over thinking, my left leg tenses up if i walk too much, and i have an unproportional body (My left leg is a little longer then my right leg and my right arm is a little longer then my left arm.) But what you wrote is really informative! :)

oh my god THANK YOU for pointing out the obvious: people with cp aren't retarded, they are just as smart (and sometimes smarter) than most of us. My sister has cp (she looks just like a normal person too... she just has walking and motor control issues) and she is one of the smartest people i know.

Yeah.. I have a pretty cool sister.

I like this part especially because of the scar and bruises part, but I have one question:
If I wanted to draw a character with a burn scar, would I draw the scar somewhat like a Keloid scar?
