    where do you start?

    hey guys, i was just wonderin'..... where do you start your pictures?
    for example- i start by drawing the head and then the torso then the libs, and some times i start by drawing the eyes (these pics often go wrong..!) and what type of pencils do you use? i start by using a '3h' then when i am happy about the pose and BG i use a 'B' to out line and shade it into have some tone depth.... well i am just curious how you guys draw realy!

    I start out with some guidelines, then I start doing the head. Basically, I just draw from head to bottom.

    If I'm doing a full body pose, I start with a basic stick figure to see if my anotomy is alright. From there, I draw some shapes over the stick figure. Then I do the details in the flesh, then I add the clothing.

    If I'm doing just a haed shot, I draw the shape of the head, then the eyes, the nose and the lips. From there i add the hair.

    i use a standard stift pencil (donnu what it's called in english) with a stard HB - then i just change the hadness i draw with to shade and stuff

    and i start by sketching the whole body and surroundings - then start out with the guidelines and eyes - then once the face and hair is done i start working on the enviroment, and finally the body

    well.. I use a .5 mechanical pencil, I start with the eyes for mines.. and then from here I do the eyebrows, nose, and mouth.. I then draw there hair to understand the shape of the face. I then outline everything out then start on the bg with whatever goes with the picture and finish it with coloring.. ^^

    i start with a no.1 hb hard ; then do the face first. Then use hard hb for main body, erase and fix mistake when done. use a soft 4hb on the outline of the body. And for the shading. next i roll up a piece of paper to sharp point and slowly smooth out my shadows. The i laminate .
    hehe kinda complicated my life it is.
