Some more advice that I have no right to give.  I’m serious about the Stephen Silver advice though- he’s the man.


I was looking for fonts recently and fell in love with many, so I figured I’d compile all my favorites. Some of them require a tweet or Facebook post to download. All credit goes to their respective makers.

whitephox whispered:I want to know how to draw more with the "lightning bolt" technique, I saw a couple of tutos in Pixiv but they were in japanese sadly, plus Sycra's videos only and no one said more about it, thanks in advance!

artist-refs:

[Sycra] invented that method, so it’s not too well known, which is why few people talk about it. Even the [Japanese tutorial] you mentioned references [Sycra’s] [videos].

I did find [this blog post] with studies of figures made using the lightning bolt method, though.

There isn’t much to it, but you should have some understanding of anatomy to really get the most out of it; each of those zig-zagging lines fit pretty closely with the muscles and bones under the skin.

You can practice by finding and tracing the patterns over a photo like so:
