A weird thing I find incredibly helpful for art/writing.

Eplans.com is a website that sells blueprints for houses. 

This might not seem that helpful but if you want a characters house you can make selections based on what sort of house you want them to live in.

Then browse through the results and find the house you want. Then you can view the blueprints and have a room layout for that house, which can help with visualising the space they live in.

It makes describing generic homes so much easier.

thank you

http://mono-1.com/monoface/main.html  <— monoface, the random face generator
When I sit down at gigs, or to work on commissions I typically like to warm up with a quick drawing or two.  Preferably I enjoy drawing from life, as opposed to from my imagination.  But many times there arent any people in the library, cafe, park, or studio you’re sitting.  
Some might try googling for randos, or celebrities, but this can get tiring and repetitive after the first few sessions.  Enter monoface, the random face generator!
Now with one button you can quickly generate a face to draw, and move on with ease without having to fuss through google’s tiring library of images.  This helps me keep the energy of drawing alive as I can spend more time actually drawing, as opposed to looking for reference.  
It kind of reminds me of quick pose gestures from life drawing (which btw were my favourite drawings to do)
Happy monofacing!

HEY YOU GUYS GUESS WHAT Bioshock: Infinite is out and I can finally show some of the visual development I did for the game! :D  Pretty excited over here.

Figured I’d start off with my dress design process for young Liz, since her alternate outfit has been getting a lot of coverage (no pun intended) over the past couple of months.  Irrational wanted a period- and age-appropriate look, so that’s what I was aiming for.  I’ve got some more stuff I can share out tomorrow, but I didn’t want to overload you guys with art posts. :)

-C, who is definitely picking up her pre-order after work

(Tremendous thanks to Jorge Lacera and the team at Irrational for briefly welcoming me into the fold- as a huge fan of the franchise I was blown away when they hit me up to do some concept work, and it was an absolute pleasure to contribute in even the tiniest way to what is looking to be an amazing game.)

Beautiful!

Look at all the pretty options~

I’ve seen some people talking about how that don’t really know to wrap their heads around how a hat wraps around a head, so I thought I’d throw out there my extremely cheap and poorly thought out way of going about it. BEHOLD, TUBE HATS, modeled by the Spine, because I felt like drawing him. :D

  1. Draw your head! If the character has hair or what have you, I suggest drawing it, as well. Hair effects how a hat sits on the head, so it makes sense to include it.
  2. Find the point on your person’s forehead where their hat rests, someplace between the eyebrows and the hairline, and trace a circle around the head, roughly in alignment with that spot. If you happen to know the person wears their hats at an angle, you’ll want to figure that out here by making the circle go at an angle. I swear, you’ll want to do this NOW, not later. It’ll save your sanity. And the circle doesn’t have to be pretty, you’ll be cleaning it up later and no one will see it (unless you’re making a cracky tutorial, sob).
  3. Once you’ve got your circle, here’s the cheap part: make a tube. That’s right, make a tube. Make it look like they’ve got a giant toilet paper tube stuck on their head. The tube should probably be as tall as the hat you want to draw. I highly recommend drawing another circle on top, mimicking the one around their head. It’ll make shaping the crown easier.
  4. Now you’ll want to flesh out the crown. My example is a fedora, but you’ll want to probably look at examples of the hat you’re trying to draw on Google Images, or something. There’s no shame in referencing things, seeing as you can’t draw something if you don’t know what it looks like! Make use of the upper circle of the tube to figure out where the back of the crown is and the general curve of it. The sides of the tube make finding the sides of the hat a snap!
  5. And the last drawing part, and possibly the most frustrating for me, is the brim. If it’s a full brim, you need to follow the guide of the first circle and make a bigger circle around the head, keeping in mind how deep a brim you want. If it’s curved (like most hat brims are), you’ll need to noodle that out on your own. I don’t have a good explanation on how to do it, it just takes time, practice, and lots of reference photos. Bills are weird and I’m not explaining them here. :V You’re on your own, kid.
  6. And then… clean up! That’s it! The hat is done! You’re free, FREE! FREEDOM, AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!11!!!!!11!!!!1

And that’s it. There’s way better ways to go about it, I’m sure, but if you’re just starting out (or painfully lazy, like me), this is a good starting point. And it works for any formed hats, so far as I can tell. It’s not so great for a floppy knit stocking cap, but those are so amorphous that you can just sort of draw a wiggly line around someone’s noggin’ and call it a day. :V

I’ll be obnoxious and tag this for the fanmily.
