The main reason for the ‘said’ rule, is that 'said' is invisible.

If you write a whole page of dialogue, readers need to be able to distinguish between the speakers.

There are several ways of doing that:

I absolutely adore your art style I was wondering if you could explain how you draw faces and like heads cause I have a lot of difficulty with constructing the face without having it look like an utter disaster sorry if your busy you don't have to do this but I was just wondering if you could help a young artist out thanks :D

The friendly neighborhood scribbly circle here is your foundation for drawing heads from any angle.

Like, any angle.

Because even when viewed in perspective, the head still has the same amount of volume.

As for actually constructing a face and placement of features, you can see that when jotting down a face, I generally lay down those guidelines [here in green] so I have something to work off of when I’m expanding upon a sketch. I would mostly recommend being aware of the underlying structure if the face.

If you’re going for super-anatomically-correct, you can see that facial features line up in specific, symmetrical ways.  For real though, nobody’s symmetrical and sometimes noses are long or ears are small and faces are asymmetrical or just plain different. So this is a foundation but not a cast iron rule.

I will say that the more you do it, the easier it will become! It all just takes practice. And I totally tried to screen record a sketch, but my computer is being hella slow and it keeps freezing up, so I give up. In lieu of something new, here’s an older process gif that I think shows things pretty well:

YUP. Hope this helps. o/

Hello, dear followers!

Over the last couple of days I’ve gotten a lot of new followers, and I’ve also gotten lots of questions on writing. While I’m trying to get through them all, I figured I would create a little something of a MASTERPOST, so that those with questions that I have already answered in the past can get back to writing as soon as possible :D

NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL WRITING ADVICE (VOLUME 1)

Now, if you don’t mind me, I have quite a few answers to get through c; I will see you around, cuties! Oh, and remember, if you want more writerly content, make sure to follow me: maxkirin.tumblr.com!
