Mangish 6 Kubo Eyes and Miniatures by legomaestro
Mangish 6 Kubo Eyes and Miniatures
previous study - legomaestro.deviantart.com/art…

Man, I remember starting this and having such excitement and fun, but there was always such a large negative feedback about such studies that I quit. Never again I say. I understand that this doesn't beat learning proper fundamentals and anatomy, but I love manga and anime, and these studies are so easy and fun to do and so informative that I find it worth it


I hope that they can help in any way. Whether you symphasize or not I hope they can be of some interest to you. I am also open to any ideas and tips, so please do share.





Transcript

Kubo Symbol Studies


- Eyes just refuse to be simplified other than the fact that they stay in line. (I mean that I can't summarize them by using a square or circle. They have special curves and shapes I cannot simplify that easily. True for everything really, but still interesting to note)

- Perhaps they are separate lines that come together to make a whole - A TOP LINe and a BOTTOM LINE

- But that's not ALL - There's eyelids too

- Have no idea how long and far lids go. Must make more studies.

- Top eye line (1) is thick and bottom (2) is thin

- Do eyebroews change? (When different expressions are made?)

- In fact - WHAT  causes different emotions in eyes?



Test


- I was deliberately careless and can say they still look like they belong to the same character. How about if I draw with my left hand?

- Ok that was horrible

- Yiiikes. That's another story. I can tell what I wanted to draw, but in the end accuracy is needed. Or rather SMOOTHNESS is highly valuable. I'll try again lter.





Miniatures


I can't stress the importance of miniature forms. When people talk drawing anime and manga a lot of that is done with only ideas of awesome looking front-facing characters with great outfits. That's more Illustration than telling the story through characteriation and dialogue.

Shinji's limbs have been made stick-like - seriously how much knowledge of musculature and bones survive such changing of the figure?



Eyes again

3 - Eyelids can have different looks too!

4 - Eyebrows can also be compound to have more features. HOWEVER they connect to the eyebrows in the end

Practice has been going great, but I feel like I'm losing out on a lot of the fun I used to have when writing and drawing. So from this week I'm definitely going to get into more community based art and the like. Work on my projects more and network as best as I can.

Your corona
nearly put me in a coma

the cones of my eyes
alight with fire like fireflies
they have taken up house in my mind
and fire lights up in my nerve endings

this won't be easy
this won't be clean

But knowing a beauty such as this
makes it all totally worth it
The Whine
the great mass
present past and future passed

The Groan
the roar of gushing blood
and spikes unseen but stuck in hearts

The Sorrow
the singular omniscience
that twists souls and sets scales - and places boundaries on the world

one may be mortal - but Pain is eternal
One billion monkeys typed random keys in typewriters
After a billion billion years they produced the complete works of Shakespeare

They celebrated their success: Randomness could forge existence.
Then one of them - Bob - asked
"Then who made us?"

Where Bob's body is buried, nobody knows.

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
