ZNN Presents: an Art Tutorial by Our Very Own Sendrax

Dominic Faux here again,

If you've been following us for a while now, you may recognize the little shrew above as ZNN's very own Sendrax. He's a great little artist and he's bringing something special to the table. But I'd like to get back to that in just a second.

As many of you are aware, NaZoWriMo is taking a while to conclude. I apologize for the delay and would like to state that we are close to putting up our finale for it.

Alright, now that I've mentioned that, I'd like to show you a little something Sendrax worked hard on for all of you viewers! He's made a really cool art tutorial, and this appears to be just the first of many! There's quite a lot of info, and it might seem a bit daunting at first glance, but with help from the ZNN team, we've got a special tutorial focusing on geometric decomposition (turning a character into shapes so it's easier to draw them).

Anyways, I don't want to keep you from this tutorial all day, I really enjoyed reading over it, and I hope you all do as well!

Check it out after the break!
Dominic Faux, Signing off.


  1. Tis just a bit of geometry... If I had a dollar for every time someone told me I'd never use it out of high school...

    1. But if you could hit me up with that program, It would be highly beneficial to me... plz and tks

  2. I used Adobe illustrator to do all this tutorial but ,basically, any vector software should be very useful to do these geometric shapes.

    Try "inkscape", this one is free, and even if I have not used it yet, I can take a look at it in case you need some help.

    Here is the link:

  3. Welp! Looks like the paper sheets in my household is going to have a massive surplus of random shapes for the next three to seven hours.

  4. Don't know why, but I've never actually used shapes to start a base...I just mimic what's already in my reference sketch straight off. The proportion thing is very useful though, very difficult to get something looking right if you eyeball it entirely.

  5. Thank you, and I hope you do this for all the Zootopia characters!
