It has been accurately brought to my attention that I’ve been MIA. It’s because I’ve been working on this new project that’s going to blow Fantastic Anatomy! out of the water! Don’t believe me? Impossible, you say! Well, stay tuned and you’ll learn more.
For now, here is what I believe to be genuine UFO footage. It is from a German broadcast of a Japanese news story.
“The clip comes from a news report by German media group NDR.
At 55 seconds into the clip a giant UFO can be seen hovering above the nuclear plant. Obviously this was a slip up on behalf of NDR and the Asian news outlet the group received the footage from.
Top secret government departments worldwide collude to censor out any clear and obvious proof of the alien activity that is occurring at all times on planet earth. Only news that fits in with the program the international UFO cover-up has initiated to slowly make people aware of an alien presence on Earth is allowed to reach the public via mainstream media outlets. This was either a slip-up or a leak and no doubt behind closed doors there will heated discussion over this footage that proves without doubt that aliens are here.”
I wonder what these guys (extraterrestrials) do for fun…
Random, I know. I love to play basketball and this is an excellent NBA shooting guide. Interestingly enough, it is largely concerned with the mental state of the player, more than anything else. Visualization is key.
This guys behavior tips me off more than anything. The way he keeps looking back and forth. Very eerie… What do you think??
So I’ve been trying to figure out how to simplify hair, only to discover that it is in fact very simple. You just have to think logically.
The first step is to draw a skull like the ones we’ve been working on. Then you’ve got to think of the head as having sparse hairs coming off of it. Draw them curving out from the scalp, flowing like water.
The second (and final!) step is give that hair volume. The arrows can turn into locks of hair and often the points can be the point of a stray lock. The main thing is to make sure that the hair is bigger than the skull and also has a good silhouette shape and a flowing quality.
Then just give ‘em character!
And voilà! Check out these examples below for some laughs and ideas.
Sorry I’ve been MIA for a minute guys. Had to drive up to San Francisco for a midterm at the Academy of Arts so it’s been an exhausting week. The hair lesson should be up by Wednesday tho so keep a lookout!
Keith Pollard is a comic book artist who was most active in the ’70s and ’80s working on such titles as Spiderman, Thor, and the Fantastic Four. He is best known for his penciling, creating the drawings that are sent out to inkers and colorists. The way he does his “Character Models” (such as that of Hercules and Beta Ray Bill below) is the pose we’re working up to with our Fantastic Anatomy! lessons.
Here’s a small gallery of his awesome
work for study and to keep you stoked about drawing!
