I think that was pretty informative, giving the idea of good looking facial features and shapes!
Now to wait for the next...

Bluuuueeeeee! That was awesome. Thanks for doing the video! I mostly draw women (guess that's from learning to draw by watching Sailor Moon as a kid) but I always learn something new from other artists. Very cool, and I can't wait for more! Especially the one on males as I really struggle with drawing men. :) Thanks for sharing!

Thanks :D glad you liked it, twice a week is definitely too much work for the time I have but it might happen here and there occasionally when I do a speedpaint since those arent on any schedule ;)

I think this level of tutorial is done to death with places like ctrl alt paint and Idrawgirls having content like this already. What could be more beneficial is something more unique to you.

Something akin to [link]

And if youre familiar with Iain McCaig and his way of talking then youll have an idea of what im going for. Something grand like The skillful huntsman is out of the question, but if you did your own little miniworld with your unique take on fantasy-scifi and talked about inspirations and choices it'd be more full of character than generic foundation level videos. In other words, you will then be offering people something that they can only get from you.

That was fantastic. I'm definitely going to be watching.

Reading the comments here, I have to say -- I didn't find your commentary boring at all, and I was engaged all the way through (and I'm not a guy who commits to a 15minute video every day). Great work.

What program are you using? I use Photoshop, and I recognized a lot of what you were doing from that, but some of it was unusual to me.

I enjoy watching your process and speed paints! I tried out your process before and I couldn't believe how much I got done with it. Before, I was spending hours and hours trying to make things perfect instead of fixing, moving or mapping things out. I also wanted to say thank you for explaining the whole realistic drawing thing. I tried explaining to people why I don't like to draw realistic things but you hit the nail on the head (though I totally understand why it's necessary for learning/practicing purposes). :)

Very good first tutorial.

Based on my experiences making tutorial videos (not art related), I have these suggestions:
- Watch the video a few times before recording the audio track. Make some notes, and do some dry runs. This will give you an idea of what you want to say, and when, and help line up visual cues for when you hit record. You will have an idea of when you have time to explain things, and you wont be late pointing out things you do - example is when you flipped the canvas and didn't say anything about it until 11 seconds later.
- If you have the time, record one video, make your notes, and then record another drawing with your notes in mind.
- If possible, run a noise removal process over the audio track to remove a bit of the white noise.
- Phone off for the duration of recording the audio. I checked mine a couple times only to be disappointed that no one loves me.

Did you try recording the audio while you were drawing? If you can manage it, it might make a more cohesive tutorial, where you are talking about exactly what you are doing as you do it.

Yep very good points, some of those I started to do when making tutorial no2.

I think I'll try to record and paint for no3, see what that's like. Slightly scared tbh.

But yeah, thanks a bunch for taking the time, super useful stuff!

Fantastic tutorial. Thanks for this. It's always nice to see tutorials where the artist talks about the drawing process rather than try to teach how to use the tool :D

It was a good tutorial, but I think It also would be nice if you'd show how to draw heads in different angles too. This would hel to understand more of the face structure than learning to draw one particular face in one particular angle )))

Thanks for taking the time to do these! But I'd like to point out - just like someone before me did - that the commentary was a bit boring (you seemed nervous or unfocused) and maybe made it hard for some viewers to not zone out. My suggestion would be to record the video and record the audio track after separately, like a movie commentary. It gives you time to think about what to say and how to convey the message. It can also give you the opportunity to think of anecdotes or other tidbits of info you would like to give when you are working on a section that doesn't require explanation itself.

Other than that I like how you included a wee ear tutorial and made 3 different stylized version at the end. :)
