Holy [tornado fang]ing [parasitic bomb]...

This is seriously going to be a great thread for me to check through and try stuff with during this summer.

Since you were talking about composition, I'm found this tutorial in here to be really helpful about the subject, it has some common composition structures along with a few examples to illustrate.
Pretty nice post btw :)

...Cool, it has names for things and I missed 'Iconic Composition', probably because I've never heard of it before now. It's also more professional sounding and hence less entertaining (ho!). Also examples are good, but I don't like taking from others and I don't have enough, personally, to show :D The book I got most of my knowledge from quickly covered basics, and the rest of it was just examples of how to combine techniques to create the effect you want. I found that part to be the most helpful, so I tried to show how to composition as best as possible :D
Aka, that, + my walkthrough = profit?

I hope I've at least helped someone, or some people >_>!

Hope you guys don't mind that I bring this thread back from the grave, but I made a REALLY simple tutorial of one of my ways to tackle a quick sketch, and I heard it helped a few guys, so I wanted to show it around here as well.



Nowadays I use this method both for sketching and to get a base to clean later for when I make a more complex drawing. I used SAI to make this, and I'm 100% this can be done on Photoshop, but besides those programs I'm not sure if those steps can be imitated on other drawing programs.

I'm also posting a video of a sped up process of a drawing of mine, which shows how I use this tutorial (just the first minute, the rest of it is me cleaning the messy sketch), one of my workflows when I'm drawing, and how much I rotate the canvas around.

Since we're reviving this, I may as well throw my hat into the ring with a stippling lesson.  Nothing special with this one, no actual tutorial, just the basics of stippling.

Note: This is a method best used with traditional media.
