Alrighty, so something I'm seeing a fair bit of recently is 'But I've never drawn WW Style!' or 'I CAN'T draw it!' or 'The proportions are too weird!' and my response is a general, all round 'Stop being so damn negative and actually try it.'
But just going around and saying that to people doesn't help as much as I wish it would, so here's a 'brief' guide on what the Wind Waker style is all about. And lucky you, it's only a part one, so there's more to come, too ~
This guide does assume you've got a basic grasp of anatomy that you can apply to the style, and if you don't, go search around DA for tutorials on anatomy, perspective, foreshortening, etc etc as there's a ton more tutorials around the place that explain all that better than I could. This is more an overview on the shape and function of the WW style. It's probably not much help for those who've already got a good grasp of the style though, and definitely not the only way to do things. This is simply what I've managed to pick up from drawing WW every so often over the last couple years.
Hopefully, this does help out a few people wanting to try the WW Style, and if so, great!Other WW Guides:
