Tutorial: Forshortening by SAYno2U Tutorial: Forshortening by SAYno2U
It took me a long time to make this. A lot of hard work. It's not the best looking tutorial but I filled it with as much info and explanations as I can. There is actually supposed to be more but Open Canvas said that it wouldn't allow me to make it any longer. I also didn't want to make a part 2.

This is all from my head. No references or anything, so sorry if it is wrong somewhere-- this is how "I" understand how it goes to make the foreshortening effect. If you don't like it then... go look somewhere else? =.=

REMEMBER TO PRACTICE!!!!!

Thanks for the tutorial! I'm going to practice a lot with this one xD... I usually use circles and lines but I see that with other shapes the anatomy get's more realistic.
Thanks for the tutorial!

P.D.: sorry for my bad English D: it's not my birth language.

Finally someone explains how to foreshorten without using the "box" technique. Many thanks!
Reply
:iconsayno2u:
SAYno2U Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
Yeah, that is a more advanced guide to doing it and I think it can only be achieved after your able to do it without using the full box. xD I don't know why they don't talk about the basics first!

I was wondering how I could draw characters posed like this, and when I read your tutorial I was thinking "Why didn't I think of that earlier? I already know how to draw the simple shapes like that!" XD

Now I am going to try it :D!
Reply
:iconsayno2u:
SAYno2U Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
Yes, yes, yes! That is my theory! I've used basic shapes so much to help me make good figures, I knew I needed to show people that it just takes basic shapes! n____n
