if you dont i would like to ask how you are able to draw the same person over and over with them looking like the same person because this is a problem i have and cannot seem to get a person to look how i drew them last time or they dont even look relatively similar to the last drawing i have done of them and i am just very very in need of art help (basically the opposite of sam face syndrome)

@patronsaintofwhiteboys

sure! fun fact: ive been criticised in the past of same face syndrome but the person had mostly just gathered pictures of the same character. It was A Hoot.

Really, the best thing you can do is just practice, practice, practice, but there are some tricks I’ve used in the past that may work for you! But! No trick or tip will work without practice backing it up. You have to just keep working at it, and you can absolutely do it! Don’t get discouraged, you’re improving and growing all the time. I absolutely know how hard it can be to see how far you’ve come, but believe me, you’re making progress every day you draw!

One thing that may help, and will help you with designing characters as well, is to use signature shapes for each character. Giving a character a shape to work off of, like triangles, squares or circles, can make it easier to draw their features repeatedly because you’re just drawing the basic shapes underneath. It’s also a good way to introduce more variety into your character designs! Giving each character a simple shape language to work off of can really help to make them more solid and consistent.

Another thing I frequently do when i’ve designed a new character is break their face and body down into the simplest shapes possible and try to learn the basic lines of their face and figure. It’s basically a lot like sketching in reverse: I draw over my original drawing of them in red, making it as simple and clear as possible. It gives me an easy reference for where features are placed and the basic lines of their faces.

After you’ve got a good feel for what they look like, keeping those shapes and lines in mind, think about how they work in different angles and practice drawing them! How would the character’s nose look from above, or below? How would their ears and cheekbones look angled from the back? Practicing different angles feeds back into being able to draw them from simpler angles as well; understanding how their faces works makes it easier to remember how to draw them more easily.

I hope this is helpful!! This is something I still struggle with and work hard on, so I hope it can help you too!
