Feel like all my rabblings about cubes confuse you? then you maybe should check out this BASIC tutorial about perspective for beginners: by
As always I finish these tutorials around 5 AM in the morning haha. Enjoy everyone, this one does not cover muscles and such. But I feel this is still a very important area you should consider practicing on. When I started thinking with cubes, my anatomy improved A LOT.
I love this tutorial. It has helped me grow exponentially, however I have a problem with the lower pelvis box not feeling like its connecting to the upper torso box. Whenever I draw the two, the lower and upper feel like they are floating there and when I try to connect them, I get unsatisfactory results.
You helped me so much. I started to draw " human " for one or two weeks and my drawing was always ... sort of human thing without bones and correct proportions, I have been working one your tutorials all day and... really ! it works ! I drew one or two page of cubes and then I was reading a manga and I really SEE those cubes ! So I tried to sketch something with a random pose and.. WOW " this are cubes. And it looks likes more human than my 3hours-on-anatomy other stuff O___O "
Thank you so much, those tutorials deserve to be Daily Deviations, you did many very useful example, technical things but you always stay fun and nice !
I think every artist has a different way to envision and simplify the figure....however its interesting to know some people simplify it as boxes....I usually just draw lines of action for torso and limbs, then build the pelvis, ribcage and head and then add the muscles on top......Sometimes I draw cylinders on top of the lines of action just to help with foreshortening....
I swear lady you are just blowing my mind with all this stuff I never would've thought of when it comes to drawing! I mean boxes instead of ovals? Starting with the torso instead of the head!? What madness is this!?!? Well whatever kind of madness it is, it sure is helping me get better. Thanks for all the help and hard work
These tutorials are awesome! Anytime I draw humans I can never do it right.(I grew up drawing for legged creatures, so humans were always hard for me.) I'll make sure to practice drawing my squares and rectangles!
Can't see the forest for the trees with this drawing method! Just use google sketchup for example instead hurting your head with thinking about 3d all the time. Its a nice tutorial tough. but its shows that is so hard!
Finally started on these boxes again. It's been such a long time but I really want to learn anatomy and draw other things. It's been really difficult for me to do other angles though. I just can't draw what I see.v.v
First off, thank you very much for all of your tutorials, not just this one. This one definitely helped break through to the hidden artist in my head!
I am a total noob who has always wanted to draw, but usually just ended up with self-disappointing scribbles that I would usually crumple up and toss out. Now I've started reading and analyzing more, and I'm keeping and analyzing what I draw to help me improve myself. I still haven't drawn anything with any wow factor, but I'm confident I will get there eventually.
LMFAO "cuz I know you skipped that stuff just so you could start drawing. stop being so goddamn lazy." haha you hella called it lmao I skipped to that part and started laughing. haha totally made my night. Awesome tutorial. Thanks for posting it
Thank you so much for this tutorial my friend! I really apreciatte it of course! I will search more books from Bammes, Vilppu and Mentler to guide myself! But hey! This box technique using the Ribcage and Pelvis to make awesome nice figures really works a lot! Now... to practice!
