All drawn by hand in zero seconds flat. Hope that's alright ^^;
Another tip I have is to use colors that are "reflective" of the background. For example in this picture I used pink-tinted tones to color and shade because she's surrounded by pink cherry blossom trees.
@mugen lol i don have any anime figurines (srry mispelled this) at home ><
this is my second attempt, i try to think about the porportions although i will admit i didnt use the skeleton model because i was unsure how to draw some of the body parts with it >< this time i scanned and traced my picture n the bad looking background is done by me. I was trying to test some things out but i think it failed lol XD also for coloring the picture itself i looked at multiple tutorials on youtube, devianart and random stuff through google....uhh so what do u think? XP

OK besides the proportion that still needed some work to do... you've also got to learn how to get used to layering clothes... anyway, I'll share how I do it...demonangelz wrote:this is my second attempt, i try to think about the porportions although i will admit i didnt use the skeleton model because i was unsure how to draw some of the body parts with it >< this time i scanned and traced my picture n the bad looking background is done by me.

First you'll draw a rough stick figure to visualize the pose of your character...
Then once you decided on a pose... you do a rough body wrapped around the pose you made...
After you worked out the overall shape... you then re-draw the body using the previous sketch as basis... unless your character is naked, you don't have to draw every single muscle and 6 pack in detail... just the overall shape...
Then you draw the pants. While drawing, you should visualize and feel the curves of his hips and wrap the pants around it. The idea is to wrap the clothes taking the shape of the body it wraps. Also pay attention the where you place the folds. In this case, the parts of the pants that are subjected to the most stress are between the legs and the crotch...
Like the pants, you draw the shirt the same way... you wrap it around the body... again notice how I draw the fold in the lower part?... Do not put too much unnecessary folds in your lineart... usually you can emphasize folds via coloring but that's another story...
And same thing for the jacket... wrap it while taking the body and anything underneath it into account...
Then you can add the hair while following the contours of the base body...
Now about props and accessories... you might want to plan the placement of them a bit more. In your original example, the belt is just there dangling and will most likely fall off... so I give it a place to cling to. For the sword, you might want to oversize and exaggerate them to give some emphasis.
Hope this helps

It looks to me as if you're not drawing individual muscles/body parts and freehanding the entire drawing.
