- This tutorial is NOT for beginners!
- Yes, I made this tutorial BUT I’m in no position to say this is 100% correct. This is how I draw, these are my tips that solely adapts to my drawing style and I’m sorry if there are anatomic mistakes. I know I do a lot of them.
- When I was cropping this I noticed a lot of grammar mistakes, I’m so sorry I don’t have the time to correct them.
- I don’t think there is any absurdity here but if I made some big and harming anatomy error please tell me and I will change/delete it
- I never attend art school or art course, as I said on the tutorial. What I can do is self-taught, that’s why there’s so many errors.
- the most important: USE REFERENCE IMAGES WHEN DRAWING! If they are real photos and not other drawings is better. This is the truth, you have to copy pictures in order to improve. That doesn’t mean you have to trace them, but observe them until you are able to reproduce it. Especially if you are drawing semi-realistic bodies like me!
Hhhhh I’m not good with tutorials sorry very much (??)
because it is the bane of my existence to see artists who don’t even TRY to get bird anatomy right, when they’ll gladly put forth the effort to learn mammalian anatomy
BIRDS ARE SO EASY TO DRAW
THERE ARE NOT MANY MOVING PARTS ON THEIR FACE
NOT LIKE US SQUISHY MAMMALS
still debating if I should make my own HOW TO DRAW WINGZ ref or just link to some good ones I’ve seen, since there are a plethora of both good and god-awful tutorials out there for wings already. I’ll probs make my own because other guides neglect to mention that GASP DIFFERENT BIRDS HAVE DIFFERENT SHAPED WINGS BECAUSE THEY FLY DIFFERENTLY
THIS IS AWESOME BUT JUST ONE NOTE
Almost all birds are capable of moving their upper beak, aka prokinesis, it’s just that parrots have the most obvious degree of it. prokinesis is the movement of the beak at the point at which it is hinged to the skull of the bird.
There’s like a million different types of kinesis to do with the beak/rhamphotheca/whatever but yeah, parrots aren’t the only ones :D
I can’t find any good pictures to demonstrate but yeah, it’s present in almost all birds. Loons and ducks are good birds to look at c:
I was looking for this! I will reblog it this time so i don’t have to try and track it down again.
A compilation of French artist Hubert de Lartigue’s stunning hyperrealistic lip paintings, all acrylic on canvas.
“The beauty of women and girls inspire me, I always do my best on each work. I try to be real. My style is the difference between the reality and my skills”
A mouth-watering fuck-ton of hand references.
[From various sources]
Gad, one day I need to go through Tumblr and just print off all of these types of references!!

I love these so much. Great examples of diverse female designs in a genre in which it’s sorely lacking.
I’ve been asked a lot about how I draw hoods, mostly Talon’s hood, so I hope this helps a little? Just a pretty basic thing but hey there ya go
Hoods are pretty cool, they usually have a lot of variety in how they can look (and sometimes people even wear two hoods at once) so just get creative with it and have fun
