Hi Mr. Asrar, I'm a huge fan of your work and an aspiring comic artist. Do you have any tips on becoming more confident with anatomy and line work? Thank you! :D
The best way of getting better on anatomy is studying from real life. Practice life drawing. If you can, attend some classes. Have your friends or family pose for you. Keep a sketchbook with you all the time and draw people when and where you can.
As with anything you’ll get better the more you do it. So I suggest you draw as much as you can. You’ll notice the improvement in your line and you’ll know what to do when you draw from memory.
I’m happy to announce that I am invited as a featured guest for C2E2 2014. For more info on the convention and my attendance please visit the C2E2 website. Happy to be attending the con after a few years. I’ll be doing a limited amount of pre-show commissions. Check out commission details at the bottom of this post. Looking forward to be there.
TGS Springbreak April 12-13
That’s not it. Just a little earlier than Chicago, I’ll be at Toulouse, France for TGS Springbreak. Check out their site for more details. I will do a very limited amount of pre-show commissions too. It will be a fun time, so I hope to see you there.
Germany Tour March 18-22
And even earlier, in March, I’ll be going on a tour in Germany. Very much looking forward to connecting with my German fans again. Unfortunately commissions for Germany are closed at the moment. Details on the tour can be found here.
