I have done some research and...

:bulletred: Hello everyone, Kita-Angel here today again! I seem to be pretty active recently huh?
Before I finish and post some of the tutorials and guides I have been working on, I wanted to address some issues I have noticed, mostly the one where people can't seem to find tutorials and guides on anatomy, men and women, hair, faces, etc.

:bulletred: I honestly admit I was confused that there were so many requests for tutorials like this, and well, I can honestly admit those are probably dead last on the list of tutorials I will be making for the simple reason that they exist already.

:bulletred: So, what did I do and why is this journal here? I have some awesome stuff to show you! :D


:bulletblue: That's right, after about an hour of research on deviantART, looking things up, refining what category I was searching in just to be sure I was in the right section of deviantART, I found a whoooooole bunch of stuff. I read through them too to make sure they were good enough, and I noticed at least one third to one half of them were already in the groups gallery!

:bulletblue: I found the best way to find them though is, to type in something simple in the search bar, example: anatomy. Then on the right hand side of the window, I clicked on Resources & Stock Images to narrow it down. Then, to narrow it down even more I clicked on Tutorials and it actually became a lot easier this way! :la:

:bulletblue: Also, a good program to use is always Poser (… since, since it's a bunch of 3D models you can make and move and animate. Okay, why 3D animation models? Because, it's your nearly perfect mannequin!!! It will be in any pose you want, and it's technically anatomically correct! :D

:bulletblue: A final thing before the list of links, there is an amazing series of books: How to Draw Manga: SKETCHING MANGA STYLE. These ones in the SKETCHING MANGA STYLE series are actually JUST RIGHT since they show sketches, and rough work on "how to do that" and have tooooon of poses and things, it's amazing!! We don't need to know how to finish the drawing, just knowing how to get it done right and the foundations is most important. You can find them here:

Helpful? I think yes!

:bulletpurple: I hope this random list was helpful to you guys. After having done all the research though, I now have to make sure these are all in the group, or request permission to have them in the group so it can be found easily by other members.

:bulletpurple: If ever you guys can't find certain tutorials within the group, don't ever hesitate to look things up and add them to the group for yourself and others!

is there a way to make them into thumb nails instead of just the "link" tags so that we pick them easier

Wow Kita. This is awesome. Thanks so much for spending the time to pull these together. I've already printed out several and stuck them on the old wall next to my drawing desk.

I just have to point out that most of the anatomy tutorials have a recurring mistake. They all (or most of them) say that the arm and forearm are the same length and likewise the femur and tibia (leg from hip to knee and knee to ankle) are again the same size. Which is wrong :|
The forearm is slightly shorter than the arm and the tibia is shorter than the femur. It's true that the difference is slight but it's there. Draw them equal and your joints will be placed oddly and it will show.
Thanks :D
