Lackadaisy Construction by tracyjb Lackadaisy Construction by tracyjb
Comic updates will resume once development crunch mode ceases at my day job.
Meanwhile, here's something I posted to my tumblr blog a little while back in an attempt to answer some questions. It ended up resembling a tutorial that isn't quite sure what it's about - construction drawing, character consistency and a little about character appeal, I guess. I figured I'd share it here in case it's useful to anyone.

Also...
- The Notes about Expressions "tutorial".
- An older drawing tutorial covering some of the same material.

Additional useful stuff:
- Andrew Loomis' old-timey, but superior drawing books, which are freely available online.
- The John K. Stuff blog, which discusses multifarious aspects of character design and drawing.
- Various tutorials by :iconalexds1:, to whom Legschilla belongs.

-----------

Lackadaisy Volume 1 is available now on Amazon.

New prints of Zib, Viktor, fuzzy-Freckle, Rocky, and Mordecai are available separately or in a set at the 4de store.

Updates announced on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook.

Is it bad that I favorited this mostly because of Zib?
