I’m making a drawing to commemorate the first day of summer on the 21st. Here is my progress so far. I still use the skeleton rubrics I made, though I try to be more flexible about it. Concerning hands, I’m just kind of inventing methods at this point. I bought some wooden manikins to use as reference, and, though they’re rather rigid, they have been incredibly useful in figuring out poses.
Still using paint.net. Clip Studio Paint is a bit more complex than I thought. There is much about it that I don’t understand, and even simple tasks seem like foreign directions–I’ll likely be sifting through tutorials for quite a while.
