Azalea by StrawberrieMew Azalea by StrawberrieMew
This is my original character, Azalea. I made her up back in early 2009, I only have one drawing of her that I haven't thrown away. I plan to one day use it in a "Draw it again!" meme to see how much I've gotten better. Anyway, only a bust because I wanted to practice coloring and shading. :) I suck at both but I think this came out pretty decent, if anyone has any tips on shading and coloring please feel free to express them, I'd love some help!

Nice, I love her design. If you do, I can't wait to see a full drawing of her :D As for tips, if I come up with something I'll be sure to let you know. All I can say right now is just keep picturing your character and the light source every time you try to add shade. Then again the best question to ask here is what style of shade are you looking at. The typical cel-shade or a slightly realistic one?
Anyways great job :iconkermityayplz:

Thank you so much! I'm going to definitely be posting some more pictures of her (when I draw 'em)! Hmm, well, for now I'm just trying to easiest way to shading, so I guess cel-shading. I really want to try realistic shading but I should go one step at a time, I guess. I try to picture the light source, I do understand but sometimes I get so confused! Sometimes I picture the light source on my character, and I think I'm shading correctly, but when I finish it looks all funky. D:

Hi!
I'm afraid I can't make a tutorial of male and female anatomy because it is what I lack at. I won't be able to teach if I don't know, same goes with the hair. But! I did some searching for tutorials from other people that may help you a lot more than what I can.

Female & male body:

Hair styles:

There are many and many art tutorials here on deviantART created by artists way better than me. I'm pretty sure you can find everything you are looking for by searching tutorials here or on YouTube. :)
