Amazing tutorial of human types!

Sword Art Online II (ソードアート・オンライン II) gun designs by self-proclaimed “gun geek” and firearms animation director Aoki Yuu (青木悠).
I also use this same method for painting fur like this
EDIT: I also usually use the 4th nib but accidentally used the 3rd for this
Since it was Munday, I decided to do a small art reference project for myself. And then I decided to make it public with the following notes.
From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
What NOT to do (front):
- Don’t chicken wing your arms! Although it might be easier to hold the rifle, you will make yourself a bigger target.
- Don’t close your one eye! You will lose your depth perception, which is crucial when you are on the move, or are trying to determine how far away your target is
- Don’t keep your legs haphazardly strewn about. You need to make sure you’re balanced!
What to do (front)
- Keep both eyes open
- Bend your elbows downwards and towards the ground to make yourself a smaller target
- Bend your knees to control the gun’s recoil + be ready to move.
What NOT to do (side)
- Don’t put the stock above your shoulder
- Don’t lean back.
- Both of the above reduce your control over the weapon and may result in a black eye, and the rifle flying backwards and out of your hands.
What to do (side)
- Bury the stock of the rifle into the meaty part of your shoulder
- Lean into the gun to keep the gun under control when the recoil of the gun kicks the gun upwards or to the side
- Bend your knees slightly to lean forward, as well as make yourself a smaller target
- The soldier is relaxed and is most likely moving around.
- His eyes are searching for possible threats
- His hands are still on the rifle, even if he has a sling on
Low Ready Stance
- Possible threat has been detected
- Entire body shifts towards threat direction
- Stock is shouldered
- Eyes are focused on the possible target
- Gun barrel is pointed in the target’s general direction, but not directly at the target.
- Immediate response
- Soldier fires off shots while screaming to the other people in his team
- "CONTACT!" or "THREAT!"
As promised forever ago, a quick visual breakdown of how I sketch with the lasso tool.
Now you all know just how lazy I amlol..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)
So, I made a skirt reference. It’s as much a reference for me as much as it is for others.
Disclaimer: I don’t claim to be an expert. These are just my observations. Sorry for my sloppy handwriting.
I found these FT char design pics
FT artists, use it well as ref ^^
I’ve been asked a lot about how I draw hoods, mostly Talon’s hood, so I hope this helps a little? Just a pretty basic thing but hey there ya go
Hoods are pretty cool, they usually have a lot of variety in how they can look (and sometimes people even wear two hoods at once) so just get creative with it and have fun
