The Avoiding Same Face Tutorial!
I found the main reason I use to Same Face really bad, was because I was so terrified of making a person who was not perfect. Anime same faces a lot, comics even tend to same face, and in movies, we tend to get only a few varying types of “Pretty People” that we’re suppose to aspire to. So it’s really terrifying to take a step out of one’s comfort zone and draw those things that the people surrounding us tells us aren’t pretty.
In real life, people are so varying and unique. I found the more I started drawing the things that I was afraid to draw before for fear of ugliness, the less and less I found those things ugly, and the more I just found everyone beautiful.
Of course, not everybody is going to agree with me here. But if you want to stop Same Facing, you should push the boundary of what’s beautiful.
Because really, it’s the differences in us that make us all gorgeous.
Useful bit to break out of the routine face that we fall into

Day 12 - Inanimate Object(s)
It’s been hectic here, but I haven’t been a lazy bum. I signed up with The Lamppost Guild this time last year for them to produce online art courses. The fall session of Cory Godbey’s Art of Personal Work class began some weeks ago and I jumped on board.
There has been lots of self-discovery and idea rummaging, but here’s a portion of a preview of what I’ve been working with in the class thus far. Just some rough sketchy ideas, the roughs/finals are in progress. And I’ll be pumping out sketchbooks around the beginning of next year with lots of fun little doodles in them.
You’ll get more updates the next time I get a chance to hook up the dino scanner I suppose. Also, new tablet will be bought after the holiday season ends and I can start playing around with that again!
