Multi-reference Sketches 002 by what-i-do-is-secret Multi-reference Sketches 002 by what-i-do-is-secret
Just a quiiiick upload... eyes and hands. These were actually two sketchbook pages combined, but whatever, eh? =P Please keep in mind I'm no expert at all, this is just to give an idea of how I draw eyes and hands...

Hope it helps someone! (And yes this may be printed out and copied from, if it suits you.)

Oh and I almost forgot... the Corinthian belongs to DC Comics/Vertigo and Neil Gaiman, not me. Tch... ^^;

Ummm... at the risk of sounding totally stupid, how exactly do I open this? Do I have to download it or what?
Please keep in mind that I'm a total rookie here.

Wow, your style is lovely! I'm trying to find a balance between anime/manga and western comic styles right now, and this looks just about perfect for what I have been attempting to achieve. =)
