With time and practice, you can learn to draw much better. When it comes down to it, with game design you need to be proficient in drawing characters in all kinds of different angles because of the mechanics of a game.

If you have a side scroller, you need to have great side profiling skills. If you have cutscenes, you need characters that look great from the front and from the 45 degree angle camera. If you have a 3rd person shooter, you need to make sure that backside looks great as well.

I use the Anime Girl 3 angles to teach the basics of drawing the same character from multiple angles. Practicing with these practice sheets is important, because you’ll start to wrap your brain around how to draw characters from any angle, an important skill for any artist.

There are some similarities between drawing men and drawing women. First, the basic rules that similar between men and women. Both men and women are about 7 heads tall, and their shoulders and chests are 2.5-3 heads wide. That’s where the similarities end, women’s waists are narrower being 2 heads wide, and the hips of the woman is as wide as their shoulders, so women are more curvy than a man.

In this lesson, we have four tutorials from drawing hub, two that I saved before the tutorials got updated, and two updated tutorials. So if you want to spend time drawing each tutorial 10 times each, you can get all kinds of practice on it.

I always recommend a pencil tool in painting programs to draw before you go onto pen tools, because the pen tool needs to be very precise to look right, where a pencil tool can be drawn over to make look right, a pen tool looks messy if you do that.

After you get enough practice on both the male drawing and the female drawing, take a try at using the pen tool in your drawings. It can be frustrating at first, but after time will get better at it.

Art intimidates people, and we make the greatest artists into almost mythic heroes, but it doesn’t have to be. It takes time and practice and the right tutorials. You can follow me on Pinterest. I save a huge amount of tutorials on this account to help me learn art, and it should help you learn art as well.

Gaming art doesn’t need to the best in the world. If it’s good enough to tell your story than it will work.

Drawing Hub is a fantastic how-to drawing website, you should check it out. Not only do the people show you step by step how to draw something, they explain it as well. I spend at least an hour every single night at this website.

Drawing a humanoid character can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re starting out, using base materials to trace over is okay because that helps you develop the muscle memory to draw things properly. Every journey of a 1000 miles starts with a single step.

Tracing over drawings or tutorials is a technique called Rotoscoping. It is especially important for animation, as you can start to use different drawings at different times to create a sense of motion.

The best thing to do is use a tablet or touchscreen computer, save the pictures on the website and start tracing over it in programs like Procreate or Photoshop. I use Procreate for the iPad for this tutorial.

In this lesson, I go through how to setup thing up in SketchBook Pro from autodesk, which is absolutely free of charge for iOS users, to allow you to learn how to draw a humanoid figure. I also go through some of the body ratios that you need in order to draw a realistic humanoid character, if you want to draw something from scratch.

Like I said in the last episode, practice makes perfect. Keep on using tutorials, keep on learning, keep on practicing what you learn and you will start to be a good artist.
