A mouth-watering fuck-ton of hand references.

gotta draw haannnnds

I was once complaining to a friend about how hard hands were to draw, and he remarked, “I don’t think anybody says to themselves, ‘Yay, hands!’”

That said, yay! Hands!

…. I actually like drawing hands, I think because it’s the only body part where you have a conveniently visible reference RIGHT THERE.

That said, this is super useful!

How to draw folds

Notes on how to draw folds back when I was teaching manga classes back in 2006. From the book “Drawing people” by Barbara Bradley.

http://www.amazon.com/Drawing-People-Portray-Clothed-Figure/dp/1581803591

This book has a very detailed description of 6 types of commonly seen folds and I think is one of the most educational resource on how to draw folds(Besides Vilppu and Bridgeman).

這是我以前教漫畫課程時給學生看的講義.來源是芭芭拉布莱德丽的”着装人物素描”«上海人民美术出版社出版».

書裡講解了皺摺形成的兩個主要原理(拉扯與擠壓)以及因兩種作用力下形成的六種常見的皺褶類型.
