all of my please and thank you’s
Kiana Hayeri grew up in Tehran, where the country’s morality police restricted her public behavior. She left in 2005 when she was 17 and moved to Toronto, where she studied photography at Ryerson University.
Her project’s title, “Your Veil Is A Battleground,” refers not just to the hijab covering — or not covering — their heads in public, which is law under the islamic republic, but also to the hidden nature of their private lives. It goes beyond the restrictions placed on women in public or their private rebellion. Ms. Hayeri also explores how the women choose to present themselves in public.
“It’s a whole world that many Americans are unaware of,” she said. “Nowadays, with all this talk about war, sanctions and nuclear weapons, people tend to forget about ordinary people, the actual people who live in Iran, and they only look at the government.”
“This is the generation that is trying to push the boundaries in every sense.”
Reblogging because I can’t stop looking at the pictures.
i am literally dying
some notes I did during today’s stream.
Altho kisses are still hard to draw haha
Michael Hampton: Figure Drawing: Design and Invention.
I took one of his classes back when I went to art school and he’s an incredible professor and instructor. I’d advise people to look through his studies and even buy his book. It’s not necisarilly how to draw correct anatomy but to know it while making it stylized. His class basically teaches the mechanics of the body while using imagination.
Seriously, I recommend anyone to attending one of his online workshops. It’s kind of pricey but much more affordable than what I paid. Then again I had my own benefits.
Regarding the first image, the way I draw the hip area and legs in general is pretty exaggerated, I remove a lot of muscle and curve the bones. The left of each set is more correct if you’re aiming to be more realistic.
The second image is just how I personally stretch legs into different body types. The third is one of my most generic poses and some feet. I approach the bottoms of the feet the same way I do hands and I make toes by just overlapping the little circles. The fourth image features some attempts at different positions I don’t show as much, an area I still have to work on myself.
I’ve still yet to recover from my recent lethargy, so this was all I could think to do… but I hope this is of at least some use! Sorry! :(
This is really good to look at, thank you for posting it!
Gosh I need to practice my legs/feet so much. ;;
broadfields asked you: Could you possibly do a mouth tutorial? Unless you’ve already done so. In that case, possibly pointing me in the right direction? :]
I wash my hands of this. It’s evidence of my piss-poor design skills.
Just a few [of the] references [from different websites] I’ve compiled for making more unique face/body shapes in my characters.
Of course, creative liberty is (and can be) taken on most of these shapes, but anyone who wishes to design a character should at least know that there are many shapes and sizes for characters to be and that can define them.
I encourage making each character, human or animal, unique and identifiable by their silhouettes and profiles when they’re bald and unclothed.
fuck nevermind trying to find ways to not suck at art.
