Anonymous asked: Do you have any tips on how to draw an environment scene (Like a river running through a forest) that has a lot of bends and curves, and rolling hills and uneven terrain? I've been trying to draw natural environments more but I find that as soon as I start trying to make the ground uneven I find my perspective starts to feel off.
Keep in mind the horizon line will be the same for the entire piece, and use that to gauge what parts of the scene you see or don’t see, etc. I think that it’s actually a lot easier to fake perspective when you’re dealing with organic scenes like forests and junk, since there aren’t a lot of uniform lines to reveal to the audience whether you’re actually conforming to a vanishing point or not. What you really have to keep in mind, though, is the horizon line, like I said.
Hmmm some things, I guess
To make things seem generally still in perspective when you’re drawing a winding river, (or roads) I use several vanishing points so that each bend gets appropriately bigger.
Have things converge towards the horizon line. They don’t all need the same vanishing points (though if they’re like next to a river or something, they should conform to generally the same point), but parallel lines need to look like they’re going in towards that horizon line. You could probably eyeball this decently without too much trouble.
Just something to keep in mind.
And more things to keep in mind when eyeballing. The horizon line represents your eye-view, if something is above your eyeline, you can’t see the top of it. Use this while eyeballing.
Sorry that the sketches are SUPER ROUGH, still cleaning up here haha
If there’s anything else, feel free to ask, I’ll see if I can think up something that makes sense
So I wrote and animated this tutorial for people working on my short film Bothered, but I figured it would be useful for all animators, particularly beginners. I borrowed some of these concepts from this awesome packet done by Jon Hooper and Michel Gagne, which is also pretty great!
A couple of tips for painting eyes! This may or may not be 100% anatomically correct, but it’s what I use and I think it looks good so yeah!!
I just recently “discovered” the “lampshade idea”, and if you need a little more explanation, imagine a lampshade with a piece of dark paper taped over the smaller opening, with the smaller side down/toward the center of the head. It helps to try and figure out where the light and shadow lies!!
Also Mike because his eye is really big and he’s fun 2 draw ha hahaah
Anyways, I hope this helps, this isn’t the right way this is just how I do things, blah blah blah. Happy painting!

A few unrelated tips that I was going to put as part of a larger tutorial, then I realized I didn’t really have much to say so I couldn’t come up with my Part 2 tutorial with this.
Part 2 of my drawing tutorial will be about coloring and painting.
These are just some random things I realized recently so I figured I’d share them. I hope they are of help to someone. Oh, and the first tip isn’t about sketching, but inking. (It helps for sketching, too, but obviously I still sketch all doodly. So I got some work to do xD)
Anonymous asked you:
Hey, is it okay if you like do a tutorial on trees and shrubs? PS: I looooooove your art and tutorial they are just soooooo wonderful, inspiratonal, amazing.
aww thank you so much!! ;v; haha well I don’t know a lot of trees so here’s two I actually know lmao, oak tree and pine tree I will go study more tree names when I have the time ohgosh _(:3 7 hope it helps!
All my life I’ve been extremely negative and mean, so I want to change that!!
I completely understand why a lot of us feel that we’re not good enough artists. Especially in animation, it’s a competitive field. And we’re constantly pressured to go to an art school, get a degree, get an internship, and work in an industry before we turn 30 and we’re “old”.
The anxiety and stress is unhealthy and just lowers our self-esteem dramatically. I personally blame the internet.
- It’s never too late! Who cares if you’re 15 or 40. Don’t feel inadequate if someone younger has accomplished more or if someone is more admired than you.
- It’s okay to dream to work in certain studios, but your other big goal is to be the best artist you can be. I know that sounds cliche but it’s a good way to feel proud of yourself. That is still my biggest ambition and the amount of friends and contacts I’ve made over the past couple of years is a tremendous bonus.
- Be nice to yourself!! I’m a self-critique but it’s okay to feel proud of your work. Accept every compliment you receive and be grateful. I’m a bit nervous towards any form of adulation but I’m thanking everyone regardless.
- Sometimes it’s okay to whine. I used to be against that but that just bottles up your emotions until it explodes and you’re depressed for 3-4 whole months. Write it out in a journal or talk to someone. Then cheer yourself up because you deserve to be happy.
Yeesh I’m sorry for the all the blabbering. I hope this helps everyone. This is also for me too so I don’t always feel crummy. It stinks but we can pull through it!
Let’s get confident!!
a new technique I found while working on my latest comic page. Thought I’d share the process!
I’m not sure if this is a really obvious tip, but I can’t believe I didn’t think of doing this earlier.
All those concrete walls I painted in perspective ;-; They could have been painted in 2d! Hope this is helpful to someone. I’m pretty excited to use this in future environment paintings
