Grids for Xaveos! (How to draw!)
MADE BY ME, ALL RULES ARE MADE BY ME!
A little advanced, but good luck!
-BASIC FACIAL GRID-
A basic facial grid is a + sign that can be found splitting the skeleton grid perfectly in two. This is used for facial expressions, and to get the eyes perfectly in place by using the under the l. The l is used for making the mouths even, and splitting the eyebrows off in their own position.
SKELETON GRID-
The skeleton grid is like looking through a less complex X-ray. Often accomplices by a circle, it shows where the bone is so your mouths and bones can't over connect to the flesh and look ''goofy'' or ''joint less''. These features are ALWAYS filled with basic facial grids, and they CANNOT be under them or it is considered to be flesh and not bone/joints.
JOINT GRIDS-
Often lines, it shows where muscles are. These are inside of the skeleton grid, and cannot leave them or it would be hanging flesh, making a zombie or unacceptable joints. Points are used for base stops such as an elbow or knee before continuing the flesh lines.
FUR/HAIR LINES-
The fur and hair are found outside ALL of the grids other than accessories. It is the topper that allows the flesh to be hidden. Without the fur grid, all you would see was the basic flesh of the head, and inside of that would be the muscles, and inside of that would be the bone grids.
CLAWS-
The claws MUST be attached to the skeleton grid, and leave all the other ones on the outside to show that they extend in a pyramid-like shape.
HIPS-
The hips are two circles attached together under the upper waist grid. They can be split in two to show the separate limbs and where the other cannot cross. It also shows where prostate would be located, and how large it would be (If male) if female, you just use the extra skin between the legs as a prostate.
UPPER WAIST-
The upper waist is a circle smaller than the hips, since there are no limbs that are attached on end. It is used to show chests, and fur. For a female, make two smaller circles scrunched a bit together to make breast-like fur.
FEET/LEGS-
The legs are twig-like lines that are attached to the waist grid. They are ended in small points which would show you where the feet are. They aren't complicated, and the two circles from the waist grid already made the knees above them. The feet are cubic rectangles facing down. They use claw grids in desperate measures, and CANNOT be larger than the upper waist and hip grid combined. It would be supernatural-like.
HANDS-
The hands are easy. Make a U with lines going through it evenly on each side to show where the flesh connects. Retrace, and add four spikes that are somewhat floppy on the ends to make fingers.
ACCESORIES-
These stick above EVERYTHING in the grid, except from behind. They are used to make your cat look snazzy, but do NOT use to much or it will look like a spaz XD
TAILS-
Just a curvy line attached between the extra skin, (Or prostate) and is used to make a tail structure. From behind, it would attach between the rear and limbs.
Hope this helped you understand advanced drawing-
