    back home

    Finally home after a long trip to Sedona. Pictures if I sort through them. It was a gorgeous place, though I still battled really negative feelings there, and now I am so congested I can’t hear.

    Still, two of my amazing friends who babysat my cats cleaned my whole house for me… it had gotten out of hand due to my depression/lack of motivation, when it was really hard to just get out of bed. They are amazing people and I can’t thank them enough.

    It feels so much better to exist in this space. I got so overwhelmed with objects leftover from my mom I just stopped caring about everything. Now I feel like I have a cleaner slate to work from, and things can begin to improve.

    Once again, thanks to everybody for kind words/encouragement. Now that I have a stable internet connection I can respond to them again. I really appreciate the support.

    You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

    Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

    1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

    First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

    So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

     Scribble it down

    start to put on features

    put on more stuff

    fix stuff again

    image

    erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

    Whole head is a gesture!image

    2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

    So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

    That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

    I’m feel really strongly about this right now and I weirdly enough think about this a lot so I’m gonna word vomit a little buuutttt

    Makani is seriously like my favourite artist ever and I think when it kind of comes down to it probably had the biggest hand in teaching me how to draw?? I’ve been looking at her stuff ever since I started going on the internet when I was like 2 years old (I feel like this is common) but kind of never really thought about it aside from consuming as a  fan however I guess getting into tf2 and meeting makani on the chan seriously changed how I drew entirely and it’s really bizarre to think about how such a huge factor in the way I draw today was from playing around on tf2chan LOL I feel like I never would’ve drawn characters/ interactions/ facial expressions/ etcetc if it wasn’t for that.

    Anyways I guess makani has just stayed consistently impressive and incredible and I still just go look at her art like every day and start deliriously laughing because she’s so fucking good LOL Thanks for coming to my TED talk on makani 

    Makani is my hero. Also for those of you who ask me about expressions and body language, here’s some extremely helpful advice!
