As far as drawing one character and the other looking different...You should ALWAYS sketch out the entire still-scene. Every character and object..That way you can go back in later and do hard lines.

Also, use the pencil length method. Draw one head and size it with your pencil, using your thumb to hold the size..then copy the size for the next character. A lot of artists will use the tip of their pencil for their lengthening, but i like to take a knife and knick my pencil somewhere for my starting marker and use my thumb for the second. Using the tip of your pencil will make it slightly innaccurate due to lead wearing down as you go to draw. Unles you draw very lightly.

And for objects it's all depth so i hope you use that dot we were all taught to use back in middle school for depth.

It takes a lot of time x.x But what doesn't. You'll get it.

I do occasionally use the pencil method..but instead of a pencil I have an old paint brush that I nick with a knife.

I think most people have a hard time drawing hands and feet. I know I do. But it's also hard for me to draw a character from the side.


I have a siggy! See:

I've had some trouble with that in the past...With different views and all. For the most part I have it pretty much down..

I've only just started drawing at all, and so far have been most frustrated by shadows and eyes. I haven't even tried to do hands and feet yet o_o; . I tried hair for the first time a couple nights ago... that didn't come out so well...

After my dismal failure on hair, I looked around on deviantArt for tips and found this: Drawing Anime Hair: Bangs by ~Crysa on deviantART . It's more specific to bangs, but I imagine that's the most important part of hair, what with its being in full view all the time.

Also try deviantART Search: anime hair tutorial , which is the search results page where the first link comes from.
