Okay folks. Here´s how I do it. I invite everybody to copy my steps and drawings and post ´em here, too. I hope I can add one or two steps/ day. I plan to show every step in PS detailed with screenshots so that we´ll get a thread covering the process from head to toe.
I wanna draw a "furre" girl. Got tipped of to the subject by Tanika. Check her website if you like to see: http://www.tanivision.com
Anyway here we go:
As you can see I started out with a little sceleton sketch at the left. Then I made a bigger, more shapely sketch. Still not satisfied I did a bigger shapesketch on the right and the coverd it over with a detailed sketch of the character. Then I scanned it. Grayscales, with 1000 dpi.
I´m not a pro with anatomy so I got a collegue at work to have a look over. The red arrows are her doing.
Chin to far from the front neckline. Mouth should be higher (but that´s comic versus reality style) The right shoulder should be shortened so that the arm hides more behind her right breast. The hand and wrist are wrong (no real advice here) Hands should be a bit bigger. The knee should be more round. Like in the smaller sketch in the middle.
So, feel free to have a go. I´ll be back tomorrow.
