You learn a lot from drawing headshots. Anyway, these are pictures of my Nightelf, Rhilleandrae, and my Draenei mage alt. Nightelves have ridiculously long eyebrows, and I never could figure out whether Draenei have ears or not or what they look like if they do; however, they do have horns!

Russian accents? LOL that's awesome. They're genetically altered Russian super-soldiers. They're obviously there to infiltrate the Alliance and bring back the secret of the Nightelves ridiculously long eyebrows to their superiors.

*nods*

Eight heads rule (and you can use it loosely.... most comic artists seem to): The human body is roughly eight heads tall. One head is obviously the head, the next ends roughly at the nipples, the next hits the waist, the next the crotch and the last four are in the legs, at your discretion. Lotsa anime artists squash the torso into three heads and lengthen the legs to five.

It's helpful for getting 'proper' proportions for a standing character but also when you're not drawing the whole body, so you can take the head and measure if the neck is too long, or the boobs are too high/low. :)

Hope that was helpful and not too confusing! I'll sketch you an example if you need. :)

You should mention that to thescythefiles or mindofmonyo. I'm sure they'd find your Draenei theories excellent material for fanfic.... On second thought, maybe that's not such a good idea. 0_o I've heard about what they're written.

I'd love a sketch to see what you mean. Anything else I need to know?
