I made this for Zach Logan of the One Piece Podcast’s birthday! He wanted a One Piece style colorspread with all the podcast guys. I think I went a little overboard, haha.

As promised forever ago, a quick visual breakdown of how I sketch with the lasso tool. Now you all know just how lazy I am lol..not really, I hate to demonize any tool. It’s just a super generic technique I’ve sort of become obsessed with.  Making sketchy blobs look like things. — (On Deviantart)

myprspctv asked: Love your artwork!! :) as a professional illustrator, would you tell me some advice on developing potrait? im always mess up when it comes to potrait drawing. i really dont know how artist like you can be so precise in developing value for face. Thank you very much :)


Answer:

kasiaslupecka:

Hello  and Thank You :)

The first thing if You want to do portraits is to know anatomy. Start with learning what is under the skin and understand how it affects the face. When You got that covered You must know how face is structured. That will give You the knowledge how to light head. Head is a cube-like object. (yea! NOT sphere!) On face we have other little cube-like object (nose).  

A great exercise is to find photos of a face and draw structure lines over it.

Example:

image

You see clearly now? The structure of a nose, where cheeks are, forehead etc.

After doing this You will be able to create the face from a memory using these helping lines.

Like here. This is Michael Hampton exercise:

You see how everything fits thanks to the structure lines?

Drawing a face requires TONS of practice. Find thousand photo references and practice.

Understand the anatomy and face structure first. It’s basic.That would be the things I would recommend for everyone who start drawing faces :)

I hope it helps a little!

Anonymous asked: What's your favorite op fan art you've ever made? Also, what one question would you ask oda if you ever met him?


Answer:

i honestly have no clue? i only recently started churning out decent OP fanart (before it was hard for me to draw one piece fanart because whatever i drew didn’t feel… right, for some reason), so on average i’d say whatever i made within the last few months. i do have a bunch of favorite sketches, tho.

some of these sketches in particular

oh, and i’m rather fond of this painting (that isn’t the finished version btw, i forgot to take pics of the final image which has a painting on both sides of the cardboard) which i painted for my friend for christmas

what would i ask him?

mmm, is this in some hypothetical world where language barriers don’t exist?

i think i’d ask him about his interest in world history and cultures, and what his favorite history/culture is OR what history/cutlure has inspired him the most outside of Japan’s. because lets face it, oda’s got like a shit ton of world history crammed into OP. i wonder when his interest in that stuff started, before or after starting one piece?
