Seems like people don't want my tips :/

Well whatever.
Those looking to improve on anatomy and get some inspiration, look at Michael Mentler (aka The Bone Doctor) threads on Conceptart.org.

No seriously, this thread made by him is the most useful one so go through it all.


I'm currently saving all of his posts for further reading and reference, since I'm gonna start to go through many anatomy books and other stuff on my drawing topic.


Well that's it for now.

Leo. What would be the best way of spriting a human? I can sprite and girls, I mean, boys and girls of all sorts ;] but I want to know your way. What do you think?

This is not a spriting topic in any way.

But whatever.
Learn basic anatomy dude, like the movements of an arm and its limitations, the basic shape of the major groups of muscles, important bones and other stuff.

With that in mind, I know how much I should exaggerate, delete, or even add.


And my process is kinda different since it relies on how well can you draw. I just draw something without details (like a girl, for example), and I scale it down to the size I want.
Then all I do is trace the drawing I've done.
But again, this process relies too much on your artistic skill, and if you do not draw well, you can't do it.

But again, this isn't a spriting topic. And I'm not even a good spriter myself.

Hands are annoying to draw, but eventually you learn how to do it.

I hope so, many of my upcoming drawings have lots of hand detail.

Soon you will learn ways to do it, then you can put those ways together and you will be able to do it naturally. I first learned how to do it by making boxes and putting in the fingers from the box.

Hands have always been a big problem for me. Really the only things I'm decent at are clothes, guys' hair, and faces. But I fail at hands, heads, feet, and shoes.

This tutorial can help those looking towards a solution to draw these two things (feet and shoes)
Tutorial: Feet and Shoes

And those interested in more ways to draw feet - in fact, the entire body - look for Gottfried Bammes books, they're awesome.
Leo's Tips and Art Resources - Page 3 Bammes51
Leo's Tips and Art Resources - Page 3 Bammes45
some examples

And this tutorial that I have stumbled upon on Tumblr which seems to make use of Bammes methods.
Spoiler:
Leo's Tips and Art Resources - Page 3 Fx3TQ


Keep in mind that these are meant to be in a more realistic style (especially Bammes), but once you learn the feet, you can do whatever you want with it.

Remember, you have to know how something is before you start modifying it to your needs.

So I scanned a drawing I did today but it was nearly impossible to see. So I decided to use photoshop to trace it and make it more visible. It was my first time doing this and I'm not sure if I should have but I used the pen tool. The result was this abomination:


Spoiler:

I'm not even sure if I wanna attempt to color this

Any tips on tracing?

First.

Set up your scanner accordingly so it won't do a bad job. I don't have one so I can't tell what I use, sorry :/

Also, why not show the original scan so I can see what's wrong with it.

Second.

If you're using your mouse, STOP
The best, fast and incredible way of tracing/drawing something on your computer is with a tablet. If you can, get a Wacom tablet, it works wonders and they're all great.

However if you cannot afford such tablet, get a cheap USB one. Mine was 54 dollars I think. And it works. You can't see your screen, the pen works with batteries, but it still works, and it's what I've been using to get clean pieces, even when I take photos of them (if I had a scanner I wouldn't need to do this). Still, it's better than using your mouse.

"i cant buy a tablet, a mouse is all i have"
Get a program like Flash or Illustrator that have vector tools, and trace your drawing if for some ungodly reason you can't fix your scanner and/or you can't buy a tablet.
I used it to make this : Cartoony girl colored
Not my best work ever, but it still has worked. I even managed to control the lines a bit.
But with this method you have to be patient as hell, it takes time, so that's why I have a tablet.


So yeah, there's not much I can do. Unless you show the scanned picture.

I think that you are drawing too lightly.

I mean, you want some light marks to appear on the screen? Tighten up your drawing.

Oh,
sorry for the multiple post but they're days apart so it doesn't matter.
anyway inb4joey

I found this amazing site which breaks down the human figure in pieces so you can understand it easily.
Sadly the site is in japanese but using google translate might help. The images are pretty good and self-explanatory anyway. Also there may be nudity somewhere (figure drawing) so it might be NSFW. Not sure, but it's a fair warning.
http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~zm5s-nkmr/index.html
I actually found this thing way earlier, but only the images. Someone showed it to me, then I became interested on it. I found the site a few minutes ago and liked it.

I'm actually downloading the goddamn site because I don't know what the hell could happen with it.

Hey, Leo, if you come back and read this where would be a good place to start learning how to draw on a tablet. I have a Wacom Bamboo tablet (I love it) but I don't really know where to start with it...
