the-dave-strider asked: Hey Tmirai! You seem like a good person to ask about art/reference stuff. I've always had trouble drawing symmetrical eyes in my art, but lately it's become a huge hassle to the point like I feel like it's holding me back. Do you have any links to any good eye tutorials or websites where I can get a lot of practice in, or just general words of wisdom?

tmirai:

Hrm, well, I’ll share with you my favorite eye reference, which is by sakimichan. It’s a reference specifically for stylized eyes, but it is a helpful reminder that eyes have different shapes and there are various parts of the eye that can be exaggerated or varied to give them more character. I also use this very handy 3D viewer of a head on Posemaniacs that you can re-angle and turn around (third choice on the right). It’s great for figuring out how to draw eyes (or other facial features) from various angles.

Eyes are very nearly symmetrical, with both sharing about the same size and shape. Yet they aren’t precisely mirrored. There are some faint differences between eyes. If you’ve ever drawn an eye, then copied and pasted said eye, and flipped it in order to make the opposite one exactly the same, chances are it comes across looking rather cross-eyed, unnatural, and awkward, like so:

Instead, it’s easiest to approach drawings eyes with a very basic shape. Eyeballs themselves are round, but the shape of eyes is usually kind of oval or almond-shaped. Let’s get even simpler and think of eyes as a narrow diamond with four points.

A rule of thumb I learned in Drawing 101 was that the width between the eyes is about equivalent to the width of one eye. This varies, of course, from face to face, but it’s a good place to start. I use the colored dots and red lines as guidelines to draw my eyes. It helps me replicate the same dimensions and features of one eye for the other. I pay attention to how the eye falls within my guidelines (for instance, how close the top of the eyelids should come to the top blue dot). What I do for one eye, I do for the other.

See how much more aesthetically pleasing that looks compared to the first example? The eyes may not be perfectly symmetrical (and I definitely could have drawn them better), but they still look cohesive. If anything, it’s the slight differences in them that give them some life!

You can use the diamond guide to draw all sorts of eyes, and from different angles as well. When drawing the head turning from left to right, the diamonds will be compress vertically. Think of the yellow dots getting closer together. Whatever eye is closest to the edge of the face (the viewer’s left and right respectively in the two bottom examples) will be more compressed than the other because of the angle. Note that your guide dots will always remain aligned with one another: the yellow dots (corners of the eyes) will be aligned on the blue line that bisects the skull, while the blue dots (the upper and lower lids) will also be aligned with one another as shown by the green lines.

When the head tilts up and down, the eyes compress horizontally instead, with the blue dots drawing closer together. When the head tilts up, the blue dots shift upward, and when it tilts down, the blue dots shift down. Also note that the yellow dots don’t align as perfectly as they do in the above examples, but still remain on that bisecting blue line which has rotated and become curved.

I hope this helps! Remember, these are just guidelines to help and shouldn’t constrict you in regard to what shape or size eyes you draw!

Character Sheets and character creation →

When creating a character, there’s a lot of questions you ask yourself. Whether it’s an original character or one you’ve been playing for a long time, using a character sheet to get to know your character better can always be a nice idea. With it’s help, you’ll be able to think about things you didn’t necesarily thought about, and ask some important questions to yourself that might activate your character’s voice, or help you to get your muse back with them. Everyone has their favorite character sheets, some people prefer to have a lot of questions, some others like it a bit more vague, so here’s a masterlist of the character sheets I found on various websites and found quite interesting, plus some other things that could be used to help you see, for example, how other character view yours. 

With these sheets, you could also try to find your character’s Jung and Enneagram Type or use the Moral Alignment tool. All of these things can be really useful to get a better grip on a character.

Then, if you’re trying to create a character, and do not have many ideas, or get stuck, I’d suggest for you to roam around TVTropes, which gives you a lot of tropes used for character creation. Maybe you could try to mix a few of these and create an original character?

Or, if you’re a skillful writer and know how to make your character different from another, make a list of characters in fiction you happen to find interesting and why. Try to keep it short. Then, maybe, try to mix and match things from two or three characters, take a character and change their backstory, to see what would change. Play with them to inspire yourself and create something new, original and truly yours.

Oh, and here’s a little guide to Mary-Sues and OCs, just in case you want to make sure your character isn’t going to become a Mary-Sue or a Gary-Stu

And last but not least, this article about building fictional character definitely seemed interesting to me, and is full of many other links that could guide you during the creating of your character and help you file one of these sheets.

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.

  • Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
  • While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.  
  • She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
  • In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
  • She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
  • Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”

The term BAMF was coined for such persons. 

Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?

Yet another story I would like to read.

You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
