    The top images in the links are Loomis' "Successful Drawing."

    "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth" may be a more fun place to start but, "Successful Drawing" is the more important book. FD barely touches on perspective, SD concentrates on it. Without a working...

    You are your own best model. No mirrors, cameras or eyes required. You can do this one at the table without standing up. Assume the position, rock back and forth through the motion and draw what you feel.

    Thumb in means elbow out. Driving elbow into the ribcage means rotating hand 180°...

  • As cartoonists, we're not just draftsmen, we're actors. Think METHOD acting. Rather than pretend to be this, that or the other, remember a time when you WERE this, that or the other and BE that again. When last you floated in a pool, or laid down in a field, did you strike Superman's up-up-and-away,...

    New wave? I might let that slide if you were giving up paper but markers pre-date comic books and have been in common use since before you were born. You’ve chosen the tool of the dinosaurs. Added bonus your marker work could, like the dinosaurs, simply fade into non-existence one day, needing isotopes...

    I won't try to compare myself to Klaus but, as to removing "film" from the nib, I have to ask: Why bother?

    We remove acerbic gum from a brush or the brush won't work but we soak it out slowly, we never twist the bristles. A nib straight out of the box works just fine.

    Here's something else to think on for the next time. You only get one horizon per scene. Individual items can have their own horizon but doing so will place those items on an inclined plane: things falling down, jets climbing into the sky. You have multiple horizons including one (red) that places the...

    Have a smilie Heck, have another Now that we've established we're all friends with permission to speak freely, I'm wracking my brain trying to think of a reason, any reason, that would make transparent balloons anything other than the single most stupid idea in the history of comics and I'm coming...

  • I'm not concerned with reference, I'm talking about flow and the lack thereof.

    Her head is following a path separate from her body. Therefore her head and body are separate entities, much like the early 60's Capt Marvel whose body would split into pieces flying in different directions at...

  • I have to vote for bad, contradictory, flow. Is she going up, down, left or right? Is she trying to swim or stop? Is this a person with a head or is it a headless person and a disembodied head coming together? The drawing says yes to all of these questions when it should be saying no to most of the...

    Have a smilie Heck, have another OK we're all buddies now engaged in a little friendly smack talk in the confines of our private clubhouse. If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing then you know just enough about perspective to smurf us all (he said in his friendliest, most avuncular, voice)...
