This article is from the vaults -I wrote it AFTER the show – and was past Halloween by the time it was even half way done. Also Halloween shall live on in our hearts – next to my Oingo Boingo albums and oddly growing Abe Sapien collection. So it’s monster season whenever I say it is.
I asked for suggestions on what I should try to do a tutorial on, and this was a suggestion. So I’m going to give this a shot. Now this is a more advanced level tutorial, so I’m not going to say much, if any, about basics of anatomy or principles.
Also please forgive cause I’m going to bastardize some concepts from animation as we go. I also intended to make this one long tutorial but after writing this I realized schedule wise it might be better for me to do this in parts. So forgive if this part is more of a “well duh” than anything.
How to start this? Well I suppose we start like one starts all art – a blood sacrifice -through observation and study of what you are intending to draw. Also a lot of practice.
