I swear to god I'm going to get that hip tutorial out to you guys soon. I'm just absolutely dedicated to figuring out a way to clearly explain the pelvis, which is taking some... patience. And time.

I finished up prepping for the next Pencil Kings Challenge though, five hours worth of Perspective videos that I hope will really help people out.  More info on that when I get it!

Gonna start a YouTube channel to demo some of this stuff soon, too, as soon as I don't have a big bandaid smack between my eyes. =P  Until I get suggestions I'm just going to demo each of my anatomy tutorials, try to make it quick and clear, step-by-step, show how these things are constructed.

Like pelvises. Wtf pelvis, make sense.

I'm doing all the Doctors for #inktober but I was especially happy with how Four came out here. When I get them all done I'm gonna stitch them together into a poster or something.

In the meantime, you can see them as I do 'em on my Tumblr: dianekraus.tumblr.com/

So I've been crazy busy putting together the November PERSPECTIVE CHALLENGE for Pencil Kings (stay tuned for more info!) but I'll be done with the videos in a couple days and was thinking I'd maybe like to try making an informative art video for MASS CONSUMPTION.

But I have no idea what to make it about. Foundations? Figure drawing? Anatomy? Digital painting?  There's so much out there I'm not sure what people would need. I was thinking of doing one for each of my anatomy tutorials (and I know, I still have to finish the series!) but wanted to see what YOU might be interested in, first.

So let me know, leave a comment or send me a note. What do you find particularly difficult or mysterious or hard to make sense of? Any little thing. I'm going to try for a short(ish) video so probably can't cover something like shading in detail, but if there's something in particular about it that you'd like explained, let me know.

I'd really like to see if I can help out. =)

Thanks for any suggestions!

EVERY SIX MONTHS BABY.

Deal with it.

I can never find the "Deal with it" meme I want when I need it.

*sigh*

I've been drawing and painting for years and keep finding new things to do with it.

I'm also an instructor and the community manager (once known as Satchel) at Pencil Kings - www.pencilkings.com/dap/a/?a=1… - a great friendly place to learn lots of skills and techniques.

My Tumblr is dianekraus.tumblr.com
My FB page is: www.facebook.com/dianekrausart
My Twitter is twitter.com/banjo_di

I have a website now! I call it A Bridge, a Boat, a Ship, and it's all about navigating this journey of being an artist. All my tutorials are there, plus my favorite references. I plan on keeping a regular blog going, too. Hope you stop on by. =)

Wow what an amazing gallery! I really enjoy the variety of art and I especially love the World of Warcraft art. The one of Hathrien in particular has got to be one one of my favourite ever Blood elf fanarts! 

Definitely keeping an eye open for more, and I love the tutorials!
