I’ve been messing around with my style lately, actually over the last few years, lol. But more recently I have gotten myself to a more anime style. I’ll post some of these every so often, mostly exercises and poses of some of my favorite characters. To start, one of my most recent is a sketch I did right off the internet. It was a pose and I wanted to see if I could duplicate it. Maybe some of you anime fans will recognize it.
First off, I realize her right forearm on her chest is a bit disproportionate. This exercise for me wasn’t about being exact, but being fast. This from beginning to end took me approximately 21 minutes to complete. I have others that are more refined, some detailed, some just quick sketches. I’ll share my sketch book with you.
I try not to use an eraser. But if your more comfortable with one, I’m not judging. Get yourself a couple light, medium, and dark HB pencils if you plan on creating detail, or dark areas. But for a quick sketch like the one above, a simple #2 will suffice. Eventually I would love to get a set up so I can record video of me drawing. But for now, I just want to share as much as I can.
