2 days, 15 hours later – and damn does it feel good to be back behind the ol’ drawing board.

Sometimes I think I’m an absolute slacker… until I see the time stamps on some of these intricate specimens. The inner paranoia of an obsessed worka-holic indulging in a labor of love. Go figure.

Would I rather be doing anything else? HELL NO! I’ve come to the conclusion that drawing comics is highly therapeutic. I don’t care what anyone says.

Okay – now to the drawings above. You guessed it! I’ve drawn this guy up for the new Proportions Lesson I’ll be releasing sometime around the endish of this month.

This particular part of the lesson talks about a popular obstacle surrounding proportions that many of us struggle with – what happens to the proportions of a character when you begin to pose them in perspective?

Yep. This lesson goes the whole 8 miles on everything there is to know about keeping your characters in proportion. And though it’s taken some time to put together, I’ve enjoyed every single moment spent on it!

As you can imagine I can’t wait to call it done and get it out to you.

Actually, while I was drawing this dude up, I asked my brother Korey to check it out. I often get him to critique my work to avoid embarrassing myself, because hey – the truth is there’s no magic recipe’ for drawing a perfect picture every time pencil goes to paper. Sadly, not even I am immune to creating bad drawings from time to time.

Anyway, not only do I record the making of these illustrations, I also keep the layers separated as I’m working. In other words, I preserve all the foundational construction sketches, the rough drafts, and the line weight, shadow and rendering layers for the inks.

And Korey mentioned that letting you have the actual project files for these drawings might be useful to some of you! I hadn’t even thought of it, but it was a fantastic idea.

So as an added bonus, I’ve decided to include the project documents for all the illustrations inside the Proportions Lesson package.

That means in the premium package you’ll get the 1 Hour Lesson + E-Book, High Res Proportion Charts, Video Recordings and the Layered Project Files for each Illustration.

Some of you have asked about where you’ll be able to get your hands on the Proportions Lesson – Both the Free and Premium version will be available on How to Draw Comics . NET.

Let me tell you too,– The 15 minute free version will blow you away on its own, providing you with all you need to know about drawing the Heroic Figure in Proportion.

I’ll have some more info for you closer to the release! In the meantime if you’ve got any other questions, just leave them in the comments below.

To make sure you don’t miss the release, sign up to www.howtodrawcomics.net .

Enjoy,
-Clayton

Taking another time out from working on the +Celflux Animated Short to complete an illustration of another one of the GemGfx.com titles. This is my updated concept illustration of The #Ladiablesse. More details to follow. Now back to the grind.

THANKS for all the kind words you left on yesterday’s post. The feedback and interest in HTDC’s upcoming Proportion’s Lesson has been phenomenal!

Honestly, I feel super lucky to be in a position where I can dedicate my time to helping aspiring Comic Artists hone their craft. I’ve loved putting it together, and have learned and improved so much myself throughout the process.

But knowing you’re as psyched as I am for this to come out truly inspires me to polish #HTDC’s Proportion’s lesson into the best volume of Comic Art Education I can make it.

As you know I drew this illustration up for the Lesson, to show you how foreshortening your characters in perspective can affect their Proportions.

And since it got such a good response, I wanted to create a quick, 3 step overview of the construction process for you.

Seeing an intricately crafted Comic Book Illustration in its final form can be intimidating. It’s easy to forget that none of them start out that way. They begin messy… rough… and full of mistakes.

That’s why I wanted to share this with you today. No matter how complex the art work, it’s the underlying foundations that truly make or break it.

That’s also why the first lesson I decided to create for HTDC focuses on Proportions… because if you can get them right, you’ll solve most of the problems novices struggle with for years - RIGHT AWAY.

You can get the High Resolution version of the Comic Desconstruction for Guyllion at: https://www.howtodrawcomics.net/comic-deconstruction-2

Remember that sharing is caring too, so if you found this useful, pass it onto your friends.

Thanks, and have an awesome day!
-Clayton
