Good evening new and old members of Artisan Guild!!
This is your Admin Meguru-sama speaking!!

We haven't held an event in quite a while, so why don't we do something now??

Art Request Event:
Your goal is simple:
Just copy and paste the form bellow and have fun practicing on your art skill and making friends!!
  Number of Art Requests: ((Enter a number of requests you'd like from people here; whatever you feel comfortable with!!))
  Type of Request: ((For instance, you may want to do a sketch request, or a full color; ie. sketching animals, humans only, manga style, etc.))
  Do's/Don't: ((Put here what you'd feel comfortable drawing, and what you are not; ie. Do: humans, mechas, furries, etc./ Don't: nudity, explicit, animals, etc.))

-Make sure to check the number of requests the artist would like to take before replying to their comment
-DO NOT harass an artist for requests if they are over the number of requests they'd like to take
-Be polite, ask nicely

If I find anybody harassing others, I will first give them a warning. If they persist on harassing others, I will BAN that member from the group. MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THE RULES
Good evening new and old members of Artisan-Guild!!
This is Meguru-sama, your future owner of the group speaking.

I've noticed that the group has been neglected for a long time since I temporarily left DeviantArt; and I've also noticed that the owner of the group has actually deleted his account. Now that I have slightly more time in my hands, I've decided to work on this group a little more for the sake of our members!! To clean some things up around here, I've deleted most of the journals and kept the ones that I thought were useful. Also, I will be adding new folders shortly.

We do apologize for our lack of professionalism and just throwing the group out of the way.

On a side note, but in the near future, I will be looking for new personnels to help me mod the group!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Future Owner

So this First Advice and Tutorial Journal will be on General Anatomy and Such. The second will be up to you so please comment below in what you think the next Advice and Tutorial Journal should be on.


What I personally find the hardest to draw is feet and hands. I found that with a lot of practice and a lot of frustrating mistakes my feet and hands actually look at the very least almost the way i want them to be.
Now my favorite Style of drawing is Anime or sometimes semi-realism, and i find that by doing studies of the more traditional style realism actually helps improve my anime pictures greatly. For instance i would practice drawing my hands and feet in different positions holding different things and from different angles. I also find it extremely helpful while i'm drawing and i'm having a particularly hard time drawing a hand or a foot in a certain position i will stop for a moment and put my hand or foot in that position to see how it looks and will then use that as reference.

Now I know everyone has their own personal problem areas When drawing anatomy (the structure of living things, in this case Human anatomy) So i will Cover in this journal the main Parts.
1. General anatomy of a man and a woman and a child. (a child's anatomy is different than a grown adults)
2. The Head
3. The torso
4. Arms and Legs
5. Hands and feet
6. Extras (such as hair, eyes)

1. General Human Anatomy

Human Anatomy Study by jcevil As beautifully demonstrated in this picture by :iconjcevil: It is common to Divide the Adult human body into Head lengths to properly proportion your person. ~jcevil Has put his male and female figures at both being at about 4 head lengths. though it is common to draw a person anywhere between 4 and 8 head lengths tall
To draw a person it is always advised against to start with the details. The most common way to start any picture whether human or not is by blocking in the basic shape and form as so beautifully depicted here Simplify Human Anatomy guide by sakimichan by :iconsakimichan:
A child's anatomy is different in that a child is androgynous (meaning no markers as to what sex they are) it is also different in that on an adults person the legs take up the most head lengths whereas on a child the torso takes up the most head lengths as demonstrated here Child proportions - Redline correction (UPDATED!!) by FOERVRAENGD by :iconfoervraengd:

2. The Head

Anime style
the face has 2 basic guidelines to follow that cross each other. On the horizontal line is the bottom of the eyes and the center of the ears. (the ears may very if you are drawing something that is not human). On the vertical line is the center of the forehead nose and mouth. An illustration here by :iconmireielle:

Realistic Style

In drawing a realistic face everything changes according to the person you a trying to draw. Such as the shape of the: eyes, nose, mouth, ears, cheekbones, jawline, and even the shape of the head itself.
So here are some general guidelines on realistic drawing faces
Face Proportions: PROFILE VIEW by FOERVRAENGD by :iconfoervraengd: Is an example of basic guidelines when drawing a side profile of a realistic face.
Rough Facial Proportions by rinchan089 by :iconrinchan089: Is an example of basic guidlines when drawing a frontal view of a face

Semi Realistic
Tutorial: How to draw a face by D17rulez by :icond17rulez:

3. The Torso

The Torso consists of the shoulders, the chest, the abdominals, and the hips.
an example of the female Torso

Mature Content

AS Drawing the Female Torso by CGCookie

an example of the male Torso by :iconmadamenyx:
A Comparison of the male and female torso male and female torso study by kiister by :iconkiister:

4. Arms and Legs

Human muscles is very important to know on both arms and legs and yes it is still important to know the shape of muscles even if you draw anime. The reason for this is because muscles gives the shape to the arm depending on the position it is in, and the same is for the leg.
Examples of Arm muscles and Different arm positions
Anatomy - Human Arm Muscles by Quarter-Virus by :iconquarter-virus:   Arms by moni158 by :iconmoni158:   Arm Anatomy Study by AmBr0 by :iconambr0:
Examples of leg Muscles and Different leg positions
Anatomy Study - leg muscules by Call0ps by :iconcall0ps:   Anatomy - Leg Muscles by Quarter-Virus by :iconquarter-virus: Study: Legs by thegreatnude by :iconthegreatnude:

5. Hands and Feet

As stated before hands and feet are my personal challange and i find it easier to put my own hands and feet in whatevver position i am trying to draw them in. That said it also helps to block out hands and feet just like you would the main part of the body
