How To Draw Damien by strxbe How To Draw Damien by strxbe
Now you have no excuse HAHAHAHA.

But no, I did this half for fun and half to prepare for the JoshDae contest I plan on opening before the end of this month. :>

I thought, though, that having the color-coordinated hair diagram on their reference sheet would be enough to get him drawn accurately, but, well. Here you are lol.
Ref also:

MAIN THINGS:
:bulletblack: Damien's bangs cover his eyes. Both of his eyes.
:bulletblack: The sides of his hair are as long as the back of his hair.
:bulletblack: The short and choppy parts of the back and the long tails of the back have a very obvious break point. They DO NOT flow together.


ADDITIONAL TIPS:
:bulletblack: Just because his eyes don't show doesn't mean that he can't be as expressive. Damien is usually one of my most expressive characters in my drawings lol. Use his mouth and posing and hands to portray emotion.
:bulletblack: Damien is MALE. Please draw him as a MALE. Meaning attitude, etc.
:bulletblack: He is outgoing and abrasive. Don't draw him like a shy kitten lol.



I THINK THAT'S EVERYTHING?

I used to have this problem with people drawing my characters... They drew her completely wrong and I felt like an asshole trying to tell them it was wrong.
