hard skin is just skin that is has more rinkles and cracks in it. Just find some reference picks dude. Look up elephants and rhinos. Also when shading it its harder so the shading is not as smooth it would have more contrast. hope that helps,
thx... I'll give it a try....Originally Posted by s.s.nails
oh and you may want to try to post a pic then people will crit it. it kinda shows what you may or may not be lacking.
yeah i know.... got a couple of drawings, but a friend of mine is using my scanner... dunno when ill get it.... but when i do, im gonna load up pics...
can you maybe give me an example? and send a drawing of ""rhino-skin"" -it would meen alot to me, and help me too.
If you want to learn how to draw something, you have to look at reference photographs. Go here http://www.google.ca/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi&q= and search for what you're looking for; however, please note that these images are more than likely copyright, so you should only be using them for personal reference, and not posting them online etc. You can also try stock photo sites, such as www.sxc.hu . Second: practice, practice practice. There's no "how to" guide that will teach you to draw perfectly. You have to study reference images, or, better yet, real life objects and practice drawing them.this is a question I've been thinking of since I started drawing scary monsters and creatures....

People often have difficulties drawing teeth because:-an other thing I have problems with is horns and teeth, when i draw them they look so unreal, and fake.... =help?
1. They don't draw them individually; rather, they draw a straight line and divide it into "teeth."
2. They don't shade the teeth, or don't shade the teeth -enough-. Teeth aren't bright white, but an off-white, and generally covered by some shadows as there are within the mouth.
Again, find reference images.
It's possible to draw anything your mind imagines. On paper, you could sketch where the teeth are, fill in the inside of the mouth, and then lightly continue to draw the inside of the mouth within the teeth, and then add shading and highlights to the teeth.-is it possible drawing teeth so they seem see-trough?, how do ya do that....?
In Photoshop--or whatever art program you use--you can draw the inside of the mouth, and then, on a new layer, add the teeth, and reduce the opacity of that layer; + new layer to add extra shadows and highlights.
Just play around.
wow, thx alot.... I'll get right at it.... in the future (when I get my scanner back) I'll post some pics..... then you guys could crit them and give me some more advice.....
P.S: (sorry for my poor spelling)
