part 3:male faces here fav.me/d3a6v8u
WELL ! I felt like making a handful of tutorials after taking some notes for myself and this is the result. I hope somebody out there finds this a little helpful. The next two parts will focus solely on faces, and i think everyone will find them much more interesting. Just wanted to get this one out of the way first.
See if you can guess all the characters on the bottom !!! All are copyrighted to their respective owners, I do not claim ownership to any of them.
Cruella D'vil - Disney's 101 dalmatians
Razputin Aquato - Psychonauts
Bugs Bunny - Looney Toons
Medic - Team fortress
Crash Bandicoot - Game of same name
Carl Fredrickson - Pixar's Up
The former of these is a problem for me in two ways, I have a strong preference for one kind of women's shape, and worse, a lot of my characters are at least loosely based on people I have known, and while each one was very individual in many ways, basic body type wasn't one of them, all were curvy, tending to quite busty. It's the kind of figure I've had a liking for for many decades, and isn't likely to change. Makes physical description more difficult because the types are quite similar.
However that may be, this is very good about pointing to ways of avoiding my trap. Again, well done.
(Plus Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, The guy from Up, I think the Villain 1st from Layton and idk
Quick question: have you any tips for creating a male body/face structure that is fairly feminine? I am creating a character that is described has having a feminine build but I'm not sure what the best features to exaggerate/soften are.
Theres nothing as boring as the typical clone body type in manga style D;
hmm... maybe i'll try to draw Humanized versions of my OCs
By my self
Woohooo! Thank you very much! I could never draw the same character twice, except by accident, but now, with this awesome reference material, I decided to give it another try... and it works! Character drawn with the same face and body types actually look alike!
You. Are. Awesome.

Me: Yeah sure, pretty fair, let's take a look at the ...
Me:... oh god , what?! It can't be, I just found the author of one of my favorite webcomics by accident, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.
Cruella DeVil, Psychonauts Raz, Bugs bunny, TF2 Medic , Crash Bandicoot, Mickey mouse, Carl Frederiksen
Really cool tutorial. I used to draw all my characters looking the same, too. Then again, I got my start in art by drawing in a pretty generic anime style (I still do tend to draw that way). I've never really worked with silhouettes - I need to try doing that.
