I thought this experience I had recently might interest you guys! I think it’s an exercise a lot of artists could benefit from.
CC: Thank you so fucking much for submitting this. Seriously.

Yes at that bottom line. When will white people learn they are the global minority in the realist sense of the world and the world don’t revolve around them. This exercise is super interesting as well cause I’m not an artist but wow, mentally what that takes is so interesting.

Whoa, interesting!

I’ve often wondered why “white man” became the default when you say “person”.

Girly Anatomy Tips 
- WARNING! BIG FILE ON MY DA PAGE TO DOWNLOAD AND ENJOY!
I decided to draw up some tips for drawing girls, since I _think_ I know what I’m doing with them. A lot of peeps have asked for them, so here’s a bit. Will have a male one when I get really confident with the dudes (which i’m progressing nicely in that area), but for now, this will suffice. Let me know if there are any questions you have or anything else you’d like me to show you that’s reasonable. But just remember that you have to learn and study for yourself to get the idea. REMEMBER, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE STUDY RESEARCH PRACTICE!Other Tips:- Using shapes for your gestures beats stick figure methods! Read this: [link] - Draw constantly. Don’t just look at what you’re working on, study it! Learn why certain things connect the way they do, what muscles get tense in a position and relaxed, etc. Don’t just draw what you see.- Come up with your own visual cues to help you “see” how a form works, like the McDonald’s Arches and Megaman Boot. You’d be surprised how easy it is for you to remember how something looks!- With women, remember, dainty and curvy lines beats hard edgy lines! No matter the size of woman’s breasts or hips or proportions, these things always apply best: Hands with less lines, thinner fingers and smaller feet. Using line minimally also bumps femininity up if you’re not confident with what you’re doing yet. And curves always! Even on the straightest line, make it a bit curvy.

Marc Fichou - Origamis Series

From the artist:

In my series, the sheet of paper contains both the photographic and the material memories of its past origami form. Origami and paper are one and the same thing at two different times, in two different spaces and in two different shapes.
