TRSE: How To Draw Tutorials:
Applying the TRSE Tutorials to Other Animes
|Usagi (Sailormoon)||Akane (Ranma 1/2)||Relena (Gundam Wing)||Sasami (Tenchi Muyo)|
|Naru (Love Hina)||Lone Wolf & Cub||Goku (Dragonball)||Tenchi (Tenchi Muyo)|
For example: let's say that you're used to drawing Sailor Moon and want
to draw various characters from other Animes. Let's look at the pictures
of the following characters and compare the differences:
As you can see, Sailor Moon and Goku look different, but the drawing basic remain the same! It's just a matter of knowing what sort of differences to look for. An examples of differences: Head size, size & shape of the eyes, nose, neck, and width of the face,.
So by making out the patterns in the various drawing styles, you'll be able to adjust your methods (adjusting the horizontal lines, thickness of torso, lengths of limbs, etc..) to match with their drawing styles, and that will take some practice. Remember, practice, practice, practice! ^_~
One more thing: you must be aware that if you imitiate someone else's art style, you also are imitating that artist's mistakes too! For example, look at the fogged pic of Goku, notice that the left side of his face is shorter than the right side. That is why it's best to draw them in your own way.
