Capsicum's Chibi Tutorial by capsicum Capsicum's Chibi Tutorial by capsicum
A few people suggested this and I'd thought of doing it myself anyway, so I just sat down and made it up.

Hope it helps/is interesting/gives you some ideas.

Enjoy. <3

Nice tutorial! Thanks :D The only thing is, I always have trouble with the head-neck-shoulders part. Can you kinda explain how you make them, well, not look weird xD

Thw way we start to draw chibis is very similar, though yours are true chibis! Excellent tutorial :D
capsicum Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005
Haha. Is there such a thing as a TRUE chibi? XD
happymonkeyshoes Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
LOL thats a good point. Anyone who slanders my chibis, I will use said quote. Hmm but now I have a goal, to find the TRUE CHIBI!!!!
loztheworm Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2005

Cruxis-Kafei Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2005

Marissael Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2005
I'm sure loads of people have been dying for you to make this. You're like, god of the chibi. ^_~
capsicum Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2005
Haha. God of chibi. XD I like it.
carmelpixie Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2005
I always wondered how you did your chibis. They're very cute! I find it interesting that you don't draw the top of the head to do the hair. I guess because I can't get the hair right unless I have that guideline. *shrugs* Oh.... also, practise ----> "practice" is the proper spelling. Not meaning to criticize.... I just have a thing with spelling. ^_^*
capsicum Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2005
I just looked up practise and this is what came out of my dictionary.

practise v.t./i. do something repeatedly to become or remain skilful; carry out in action, do habitually; (of a doctor or lawyer) perform professional work.


practice n. action as opposed to theory; habitual action, custom; repeated exercise to improve skill; professional work, doctor's or lawyer's business. out of ~, not lately practised in a skill.

I guess the main difference is that practise is a verb and practice is a noun. So that means, I'm right. I have a thing for spelling, too. :3
carmelpixie Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2005
Okay, forgive my previous message. I just took a minute to go look up the history of each word. They're both essentially the same thing! 'Practise' is basically a british variant of the word 'practice'. They can be used in the exact same ways! So we were both right! :D
capsicum Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2005
Haha, cool. :D

Sorry if I sounded bitchy before. I didn't mean to. XD
carmelpixie Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2005
Sorry if I did too! ^_^ That was all kinda funny.
carmelpixie Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2005
but if you look at the second one, it specifically refers to "a repeated exercise to improve skill" which is how you meant it right? To practice in order to improve artistic skill. Not trying to argue. I'm curious about the word 'practise' I suppose.... I've seen lots of people use it and honestly I didn't even know it was a real word until sometime last year. So thanks for indulging my curiosity I guess. =P
capsicum Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2005
Yeah, but for me to say "practise, practise, practise" is using it as a verb saying 'go practise'. It's the same as "go run/jump/whatever". But yeah, it's a tough, weird word where both seem/are right. Stupid english language. XD
