Let me talk about how to practice drawing character. There are many topics about drawing character, I'd like to talk something important here.
If you draw character well, you can leave now. There is only basic things below for beginners.
Welcome Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) as our model once more!!
●為何畫不好 Why I can't draw good
Before talking about drawing character, please take a paper and draw a cube on it. Then draw different angle of the cube. I think this is very easy to everyone.
Then, please draw your hands on the paper now. No matter how good it is, please draw different angles of those hands. Can you draw now? Do the hands look good? (If you can draw well, you may leave now. The contents below is to basic for you.)
If you think you failed because hands is more complicated than a cube, you are going to a wrong way. A hand is indeed more complicated than a cube, but the real reason is that you know a cube much more than your hands. Though you use your hands everyday, you do not know your hands.
So, everything is beginning from knowing and understanding.
If you don't know about human body, you will draw wrong ratio on human body, or draw an unbalanced character. You can learn this from books of anatomy. You will know many thing you've never known before.
●裸體人偶 Naked Doll
After understand about human anatomy, you can now try to draw a naked doll.
Apart the body by main joints. (No meaning of the color on the picture)
Try to draw different pose by using this doll. Front angle is OK. You should accustom to draw character with knows of human anatomy.
When drawing naked doll, please remember to draw center line on head, body, legs. This can help on character creating and style designing in future.
●多角度練習範例 Example of Practice of Multi-angle
After accustoming naked doll, you do also accustom draw character with human anatomy. Then you can now start this multi-angle practice.
Decide a pose first. Beginner can set a stand-pose as the first try. Draw a front view, change the angle horizontally. It's enough for 8 angles in a circle. Then draw the elevation angle and depression angel of this 8 dolls. Finally draw the top view and bottom view.
After completed a pose, change second pose. Keep practice and practice, I can believe you will become a master.
