T: Basic Sketching Tutorial by Lurockia T: Basic Sketching Tutorial by Lurockia
It's here! It's finally here!
Ladies and Gentleman it is with great pleasure that I present to you folks my very first tutorial. I held a poll several months ago asking what sort of things you'd like me to cover. To my surprise, many of you expressed a desire on how to start a basic sketch.

Well my faithful viewers, wait no longer for it is here! I have to say that this took far longer than I ever expected it to take. I can only hope that the ones I do in the future won't take nearly as much time but I'll worry about that when I get around to working on them. I hope that you enjoy this tutorial!

Thank you for viewing!

the tutorial quite useful, with detailed designs and very humanized and very beautiful with some grace and face several techniques, perfies and bodily expressions, and the model you used is simply beautiful, beautiful colors in this tutorial soymuy,

again I wish to thank you for your fun an informative tutorial. It was light-hearted but at the same point gave a lot of meaty information. I know that as a a new artist, one of the biggest problems is understanding anatomy. So to have a tutorial that in the very least covers a great deal of the upper half of the human body is very helpful and informative indeed. I look forward to applying these tips for my first artwork post here on the site. If you want proof of how well your tips are, keep in mind that I'm coming from a level of crooked stick figures or sloppy characters at best. that and my first shot may just be a profile XD please wish me luck and again thank you so much for the informative post ^_^

No! *Smacks* We must never admit that! :ohnoes:
When it comes to drawing you just have to enjoy yourself and not have the mindset that a drawing has to look like something already established. Especially when it comes to finding your own personal style. ;)

I'm afraid that this is my only tutorial at this time. I do plan on making more in the future though certainly but I can't give an exact date as to when that will be. :)
However in the meantime I'd love to see what you came up with! If you have a way of showing me I'd be very happy. :D
