PE: Anthro Art Tutorials

Thu Jan 26, 2012, 3:11 PM by KovoWolf:iconkovowolf:


On today's Project Educate Article on Anthro, I'll be highlighting some great tutorials on how to draw Anthro. Sense there is no right or wrong as far as drawing Anthro, because lets face it, we don't see a werewolf running around to reference from, your imagination is the limit. However, there are some simply guidelines that you can take home with you and practice to better your creativity.

Anatomy



This is probably one of the most challenging things for people to adhere to. Anatomy in itself is a little challenging but once you get it, the sky's the limit as far as drawing Anthropomorphic animals, beings and things!

So below are a few pointers!
    1. The Ultimate Anthro Tutorial - This tutorial was created for all beginners and Art enthusiasts around the world. It has such detail and walks you through all the basics before getting to the next level where you feel comfortable drawing anatomy for an Anthro character. 2. Movement & Flexibility - Often taken with a grain of salt is movement. Its always a good idea to have your pose laid out. Some of those involve some serious movement, especially for 'action' scenes or concepts. This is a great tutorial that shows you the important things to consider when drawing movements 3. Pose Maniacs - One of the best websites that provides a huge resource for poses of all kinds! 

Textures:

Here are a few website(s) that contain some great, free textures for you to use!

Cross Referencing



What does this mean? Well sense there is nothing to go off of in the real world as far as drawing something "Anthro" we have to cross reference it from something that does. For example, you want to draw an anthropomorphized cat.  You will have to use references of cats gathered from various sources (usually online) and compare the features from the cat to the person. So you are taking the characteristics, features and traits of that animal and applying it to a human, object or thing.

Here is a great tutorial on cross-referencing!

*pssst* I personally feel you should remove the first wing tutorial. It has popularity and favorites, but as someone who's actually studied how to draw wings/how they're formed (and yet still no expert) It's really bad and teaches people poor drawing skills.

Everything else is an awesome link.

I'm sorry :3 realize my comment sort of came across as rude.

Anyway, wings are soooo my pet peeve, since so many people draw them or think they know how to draw them, and get the structure totally wrong! I still mess up and I try to be very careful when drawing them.
I think it's worse to put a wing tutorial that doesn't specify it's decorative wings rather than correct anatomy wings than to just not put one at all, because young artists get confused easily and will assume it's correct for everything.

Here's a VERY solid wing tutorial link: [link]
Nambroth is crazy solid and learned in wings: [link]

Both of these are very good and explain the differences in the feather's layering, as well as common incorrect wings where people frequently don't even realize they ARE incorrect!

Thank you for making this collection, though <3

I'll come back to Project Educate a lot, it inspires me to keep up my drawing, even when I feel like I can't. I'll let you know; You're really appreciated, along with the work you do!
