So sorry for the late reply, I just moved recently, and I haven’t set up my wifi service yet
Thank you so much, it really means a lot to me! Both of your work is fantastic as well, please keep up the excellent work also!!!
I’ve been MIA for a little while, just made a big move and got started at my first real studio job. I’m still in the process of getting things set-up, but here’s a little fanart of Tron Bonne so everyone knows I’m not dead.
Hopefully I’ll get back up to speed again real soon.

No problem, I’m happy to help!
Maybe it would be helpful for you o approach your character designs with the character’s “pose” in mind. Instead of just drawing a sort-of “default/idle” standing pose, go for something where the character is performing some sort of action. It could be an action pose, like a jump or a punch, or maybe something more reserved, like bending down to look at something or reclining in a chair. Really, just any sort of pose that involves the body as a whole. That way, you’ll be forced to think about how the different parts related to each other, and you aren’t just trying to match the body to the head.
Another great exercise is gesture drawing. If you do 15 to 30 second drawings of people you see at coffee shops, parks, etc, you wont have time to focus on the face or head that much. You’ll have to work quickly to get the whole action that the person may be doing.

Thanks, I really appreciate it!
Its actually really simple and easy.
For the way I did my shading around the eyes in that Sherlock Holmes drawing, I just lowered the opacity and flow settings of the brush I was using.
I just did it on a separate layer above my skin color layer, and then set the layer to “multiply”.
