Normal Person by TastesLikeAnya Normal Person by TastesLikeAnya
Took the day off, ended up practicing people. My aim lately has been to draw 'appealing' humans, which I believe I am slowly getting better at.

She's meant to look a little pasty, though.

Also tried a completely unique colouring technique.

Good day off.

YOU SIR HAVE INSPIRED ME A NEW WAY TO DRAW EYES.
My eyes (the eyes in my style lul) are pretty "naked," but yours look like they have that thin film covering it, that real eyes do. So I could put the shinies more at the light source instead of keeping it in the iris all the time,

Oh man, when I discovered putting the light on the actual surface of the eye instead of restricting it to the pupil I leveled up.

BisumitoIsSnazzy LEVEL UP. Dun dun dun dun.

Your drawing technique for humans sort of gives me a "tim burton" feel. I love the contortion of facial features and body parts - makes for a more interesting character. By using this technique you can really portray emotions and a characters personality without having to use words.. definitely a good tool. As for the new colouring technique i'd say it was successful :) I like her bang swoop too ;P do more people :D

Thanks! Yeah, I look forward to being good enough to design people with more emotive facial features. (Which blows my mind, by the way, that that's possible.)


Thanks! I certainly hope to draw more people. At least, hope to practice them and get better.

Nah, sorry. But if it helps, I used the round brush with pressure sensitive opacity and reeeaally low flow.

Mmm, did you apply color to a BW picture?

Nah, just straight colour, though it does kind of look like it would have been black and white.

In some places it looks almost like you used a black and white underpainting, but I'm curious, what kind of technique did you use?

When I said 'unique' I really meant something I'd personally never done before, but I'm sure others use it a lot. Had the sketch underneath, (a big, black, bold one), then simply painted over it using a low opacity brush (with full colour, no black and white this time). It's pretty much the opposite to what I'd usually do, if you've seen my tutorial.

I love the texture you got on the skin. What kind of brush did you use?

Just the round. :) I made sure there was no spacing, put pressure-sensitive opacity on, and put the flow waaaay down.
