In this “tutorial”, I will show you how I did this particular pet portrait:
okay guys someone the other day asked for a bow tutorial so here it is! :> I hope it is helpful.
It’s not exactly the precise archery information and it’s not completely accurate for shooting. I tried to simplify things for artists and include what you guys need to know to depict bows at least a little accurately—and remember as always, references are great in addition to looking through tutorials
Tumblr made them weeny but the magnifying glass will take you to full view

Welcome friends! This is a tutorial to help you, an average person, become Malik from Assassin’s Creed.
Alright so here is a very wordy/slapped together tutorial for how I study faces! Specifically for how I go about identifying and translating traits into less realistic versions. Hopefully my random notes make some sense, but if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an ask!
I used Chris Pine because I haven’t drawn him before, and I figured it would make the process more genuine.
This is the most useful thing. THANK YOU FORNAX. You rock.
This is very handy!
Is it bad that I thought it was Chris Hemsworth when it was tiny?
Probably not. Pine is Hemsworth’s baby!
there was actually a bit of a ‘whoooooooaaaaaaa’ moment when I was looking at the angles of his eyeballs/eyebrows because they are very similar to Chris Hemsworth’s! Same with his short/broad nose. fab casting if I do say so myself
This is so what I needed.
I just spent the past hour looking for this but everything on this is AMAZING! Seeing as I’ve been working on anatomy for the past… god, has it really been 3 years? And facial differences for the past 2 years [in between my art blocks]. This is a wonderful explanation and exploration of what makes a person’s face unique.
And a wonderful way to approach drawing fanart when the characters are played by live actors!
