Unique Features Tutorial: Pt 1 by jeinu Unique Features Tutorial: Pt 1 by jeinu
Hey! I have two webcomics where you can see this in action: Miamaska and Trial of the Sun. If you liked these tutorials give them a shot!

part 2: female faces here fav.me/d2k4ym6
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.

Really useful! I've been stuck making the same bodied characters for quite a while so this will help me get out of that rut!

Thank you so much for this! There are tons of resources for female characters but if you are like me and have 7 male characters...well, it becomes so much harder to try and make them physically unique. 

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.

Thanks again!

I do have some tips regarding that in part 3, towards the top. For body structure specifically, I would actually recommend doing an exercise where you draw the character as the opposite sex a few times (and each time, give a different body structure; curvy, slight, athletic, etc). This'll help you to recognize what you want from the design (narrower shoulders, less muscular build) as well as what you don't want (perhaps breasts and an hourglass figure might be too girly).

Awesome tutorial, thank you! Any suggestions for when you're making fanart from source material in which most of the characters already look similar or have similar body types ( because of the art style)?

Yeah, I'd either recommend exaggerating the most unique characteristics already given to a character or making the character's personality a part of the design. So maybe for one example, if one character is friendly and bubbly, I'd give them a rounder face, bigger eyes, very open and expressive face. A mean-spirited or cruel character, I'd likely lengthen the face, give a lower brow on smaller eyes, make them a little gaunter. That's probably a little cliche, but it'd help to differentiate them at least haha.
