Hey Power Painters! Here are some torso sketches to use as a reference. It’s really helpful to practice gestural anatomical bits.
REMEMBER! The core is the largest mass of our bodies, and most actions and gestures begin from it. The head and limbs are supplementary to the core of the body.
I+m laughing cause at 5 min it just shows how much I still have to learn when it comes to perspective
I’d do this too but I’m not super-popular so I’m probably best off keeping it all to myself since I doubt many if any peeps will care if I put stuff like this up. XP
don`t say that. I think its pretty interesting to see how people improve over the time, so don`t be shy and upload ur stuff ! :)

JOINTS IN MOTION
As said by IFL science
Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.
I can apply it to other things like TREES, SPIKEY THINGS, FUR, FEATHERS, EXPLOSIONS

hey kanji learner
Did you know that most kanji have a part called the radical that hints at its meaning? And did you know that these are the seven most common radicals, and if you know them you’ll be able to find something familiar in about one out of every four kanji you see? Like, you can open up a book to any random page and there’ll be a bunch of kanji with these radicals just hanging out?
- 口 on the left (or bottom) of a kanji=mouths, eating, talking, etc.
- 言 on the left (or sometimes bottom)=words, talking, writing, etc.
- 氵 on the left or 水 on the bottom=water, liquids, flowing, etc.
- 亻on the left or very occasionally 人 on the top=people
- 木 on the left or bottom=trees, wood, things made out of wood.
- 扌 on the left or 手 on the bottom=hands, actions done with hands
- 忄 on the left or 心 on the bottom=heart, mind, emotions
You can use this information to be pretty awesome at learning kanji that look similar except for the radical, because you can tell them apart. If you’re in a Japanese class, it’s also handy for making educated guesses on multiple-choice tests. Observe:
