Mainly a DC sketch blog (with some other stuff potentially on the side). This is an art only tumblr, but if you would like to my main tumblr, check it out! That's where I repost gifs, images, other artists etc... Thank you so much for looking! A huge thanks to all the likes and reblogs, I really appreciate it!

Feel free to ask for requests. ^^ I don't think I can get around to all the requests, but perhaps I can certainly try. Btw, if I do your request, I will not answer your note with the image as I want to make each sketch rebloggable. I'll just take a screencap of the question. ^^

These assets are from Ben 10: Omniverse episodes 28-32. “Rules of Engagement,” “Rad,” “Evil’s Encore,” “T.G.I.S.,” and “Food around the Corner.”

NOTE: I did not color these. That is the job of the colorists. ^^ I only drew them, so my world is black and white. Our character/prop colorists are below!

And no, before anybody asks, my desk is actually not that bright. XD I work with the main lights on, but it doesn’t look dramatic enough, so I turned them off. I love Christmas lights, and I am extremely happy that my office mate doesn’t seem to mind lol. Certain assets on the cork board are blurred cause spoilers!

The last couple of pictures are the annual CN christmas gifts that we got today. A set of four dinner trays, the Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure time, Ben 10, and Regular Show! All are beautifully designed, but the Gumball one was my favorite! Sorry Ben 10… lol

Edit: And when I said bumball, I meant to say gumball… lol Bumball…

These assets are from Ben 10: Omniverse episodes 37-39. “The Ultimate Heist,” “A Fistful of brains,” and “For a Few Brains More.” I will post more assets of previous episodes so be on the lookout! Thanks for looking!

I have received several questions about possibly revealing some spoilers, however, I am not a person who will do that. But talk to our Art director, Derrick J. Wyatt, and he might be more inclined to do so. :p ALSO, the airing date sometimes doesn’t match the production number, so don’t be confused!

Cheers, guys! I’m surprised it took me so long to post these things. ^^

People, if you want to learn anatomy, look at anatomy books. Or draw real people. People are everywhere.
Oh deviantart, your ads make me question you so much…

I was looking forward to this book until i saw Scott Campbell was going to be participating in it

My problem is not with the artists. Their style is their style, and whether people have their own problems with how a certain person renders/draws, that’s up to them.
I’m more confounded that they’re trying to tout this as a foundation of anatomy. If you want to learn how to draw lions, tigers, and bears, you’re more than likely not going to use style-ized images like Simba, Tigger, or Yogi bear as an example from which to start. You’d probably look at pictures of real animals. Same thing with human anatomy. If you want to learn human anatomy, look at actual human anatomy. Look at your friends, yourself in the mirror. Flex your arms, and bend your fingers!

“Master of Anatomy: The Ideal Male and Female, is a one-of-a-kind collection of artistic anatomy bringing together the work over 100 artists from different industries. Each artist recreates the Ideal Male and Female illustrated in their own signature style and without the aid of external reference. Each angle is neutral, symmetrical and un-posed showing the front, side and 3/4 front angles as a classic animation turn-around. The goal: to translate a decades-old sketch into something more relevant to a modern aesthetic. The result is a volume unlike anything that exists today. A must have for any aspiring artist; digital or traditional.”

There are no must-haves if you want to get better at drawing. None. All you need is a writing utensil and something to draw on. (when I was young, my drawing canvas were the walls. Luckily, I have transferred to paper.)

The biggest problem with most artistic anatomy books is that there is only one contributing artist.

… That’s a problem?

He or she is trying to appeal to the broadest market possible which makes “popular” or “experimental” anatomy too financially risky to publish. This diminishes the concept of inventive design and it makes it impossible to compare the work of various artists. In the end your left with a heavy volume where only a handful of pages are of any real use. That’s why we hired 100 artists to produce over 200 unique characters in the 3 most helpful angles - there is something new and beautiful ON EACH PAGE!!!”

This seems like a fun book of people’s different adaptations of what they think of an “ideal” woman and man are, but that’s what it is. A compilation of ideals.
Ideals.
This book’s main focus is on style not anatomy. Because it is referring to ideals, I have a feeling that you might not see any children or babies, old people or fat people.Will there be people of different races or ethnicities? Will there be aliens? People with four arms, people with scaly skin? People with tattoos and piercings? Who knows?
Think of this book like a compilation book of cars. You have a book full of different brands (artists) and all the cars are displayed so that you see them, side, front, 3/4 etc (no rear or 3/4 rear). They all look great, beautifully photographed, but it doesn’t tell you a damned thing on how to draw/drive/fix a car.
And what’s this? They’re all sports cars? That’s cool, nothing wrong with that. But what about the other types of vehicles? Minivans, coupes, sedans, trucks, exotics, semis, concept, hatches, city cars, luxury, muscle, limos, or crossovers? What if the cars were rusty, crushed, or hobbled together? What if they had no wheels or maybe had eight? Hell, why not throw a motorcycle or a bike in there.
Anyways, besides the car analogy, this book sounds really cool. There’s nothing wrong with style, but when something like this, (full of pages of the same three poses) is touted as next level anatomy learning, or something to which the masses have never quite seen before, I can’t help but side eye like these animals here.
I am not criticizing these artists, the kickstarter contributors, or any future person who buys this book. I’m also not denying the value that this book could have for a person. I myself love compilation books, but if you’re an aspiring artist trying to learn anatomy, there are tons of other options, in print and online. It’s already been funded, so if you like non-color turnarounds, and want to see examples of what model sheets (albeit with no 3/4 rear or rear) look like, this sounds super awesome.

The DC Universe has always had an immensely diverse cast beyond the realm of humans, and this is a fan-run tumblr to showcase just that! Officially, the DCU has hundreds of alien races, but the cartoons/comics/movies tend to stick to a core group, some like the Korugans, the New Gods, the Thanagarians, and the Martians, but what about the Slyggians, the Reach, the Xudarians, or the Volkregians? After GLTAS premiered, and until now, I noticed an influx of fantastic character designs and headcanons that it seemed only natural to make a tumblr that gather them all together. ^^ I have also written an additional addendum further explaining the details. List of alien races in the DCU Artists | Cheat Sheet | Prompts | Other DC Tumblrs Mod: Dou Tumblr name credit: themaskedman Icon: Kilowog from Tiny Titans 





I copied the bio straight, gah, I’m so lazy! XD
But anyways, come check out me new tumblr! Do you like DC? Do you like aliens? Are you not happy that GLTAS and YJ were cancelled? 
Come check us out! It’s where all the cool kids are… :p I’ll reblog this on my main blog sometime soon. ^^
