I found this awesome article about Gary Kelley from “Step-By-Step Graphics” Magazine.
It features a collection of fantastic illustrations by Gary Kelley and a cool mini-tutorial that walks you through his process.
It’s super-sad that “Step-By-Step Graphics” has disappeared. It was an amazing resource for illustrators. But we do have ImagineFX and deviantArt so that’s awesome…
I have a couple more “Step-By-Step” articles and tutorials like this so if you like this one I’ll be sure to share the others.
Oh, and I created a downloadable PDF version of it for easy sharing:
Long before iPhoto, hard drives and cloud storage, I collected published illustrations ripped from magazines and newspapers.
I’ve been scanning and sharing my collection here on Tumblr and on Pinterest.
I call this my “Great Illustrators Archive.”
More production stuff. Am cramming Tumblr poos today.
Colourscript for my Thesis film BEWILDERED. Yeah.
Here are a couple gesture drawing sites that have various photo reference types that you can even toggle! They’re more real than what you get from the muscly figures on posemaniacs, although still not as great for use as real-life studies.
Warning: There’s nudity, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
