"Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide."
When it comes to creating characters, sometimes it’s easy to let them slip into the same old stock standard set of body types. Basically clones with a few props, hairdos and make up to spice things up a bit. After a while, having the same actor play dress up for every character gets kinda boring…
It’s tough to break the habit too, especially when you’re taught a single set way to draw. Not to say having a solid construction method is ever a bad thing, as long as it doesn’t confine your creativity.
Check out these nifty tips and pointers by jeinu to give each of your comic book characters their own a unique flavour of memorable originality.

This is important, and something I super need to improve on. All these tips and stuff for drawing are crazy useful and very, very appreciated.
Hi Aledles. Listen, your art is absolutely the most inspiring work ever to hit social media! Hopefully this doesn't come off as empty flattery, but you've got a knack for art! Is there anywhere else you're active aside from tumblr or deviantART? Seeing more of your work would be quite a pleasure. c:
