Not My Kind of Fairy Tale
Don't give me the Knight
Whose armor shines so bright.
Give me the Knight,
Whose armor is dull and broken.
Whose horse is weary,
Whose heart is heavy.
Give me the Knight who looks at the dragon with pity,
For that dragon has done nothing,
And is just as imprisoned as the princess he guards.
Don't give me a princess who only wishes to be saved,
By that Knight whose armor shines so bright.
Give me the princess who wishes to escape yes,
But wants to free the dragon,
Who does not wish to marry her savior--
Nay, give me the princess who wants to explore,
Who wants to live and to learn.
For the years of imprisonment only made her yearn,
Not for the Knight whose armor shines bright,
But to see the world and live in the light.
Do not give me the evil dragon,
Whose soul purpose is to give that bright Knight something to fight.
No, give me the dragon who is weary,
Who longs for the freedom of the sky,
Whose leg is burdened with chains,
And whose heart aches for the princess he must guard,
Lest h

How to: Anatomy
Human anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being. I'm still far from perfect at drawing the human body, yet I've accumulated some very useful tips, tricks and websites.
Good exercises
Drawing from life

Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time. 
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I

Well, it's been a while (sorry about that). Long story short: my computer died, and all my old stuff got wiped. Chapters, references and all that. It wasn't pretty and it put me off drawing/writing for a while. That, and all my university applications and the holiday season has made for a crazy hectic time. Anyway, things are getting better and I'm collecting my references and making (some) progress with drawing again. I've made a ton of changes to my characters and plot, and I hope to share it with you guys soon enough!

Hey, I'm Justin! I live in Singapore, and I'm currently 18. I'm a Junior College student who spends most of his time in school doodling on notepads and scrap pieces of paper.

I really enjoy writing, drawing, and playing the guitar. I hope you enjoy my artwork!

I just have to ask, what paint studio do you use? Your artwork is incredible and I admire the way you color in your pictures. I too draw anthropomorphics as well, and my coloring isnt as good as yours. Keep up the great work!!
