Game Development and Animations Video Blog

We are a woman-owned digital entertainment company. Game Development. Animation Movies and Videos. Kids Cartoons. Short Films.

Hello again everyone! Today’s Art Tutorial 3 is once again presented by our lead artist Marcos. The artist starts off by demonstrating how he uses circles and lines to create silhouettes. Marcos then moves on to show how he uses stick figures to create basic outlines then how he fills the drawings for to achieve the final poses for our Project-X Champion Reisha. If you have any questions please contact us through our blog on or you may tweet us @essjay_ent. More art tutorials to follow. We hope you enjoy this video!

We have a few studios around the globe and the equipment in all studios is not the same, so the video quality will vary depending on where the video was taken. Please use the pause button on the video to help with reading the text describing the art process. We hope you enjoy the video! More art videos to follow soon.

    You’re so lucky to have Marcos. He’s a gifted comic artist. When I grow up, I want to be like Marcos.

  2. Jireh says:

    this is a pretty awesome trick with circles
    I can finally draw a snake properly lol.. but seriously though.

  3. Christopher says:

    Do you make manga books? The drawing and tricks are pretty cool.

  4. Ryan says:

    What about drawing an animal-like character? Can you teach us that please.

  5. Avalanche says:

    Can you give tips about drawing the background of the picture. I got curious about it.

  6. erika says:

    The result is really amazing. I never knew that this is possible. Thanks for the drawing ideas!

  7. tyson says:

    Thanks for this tutorial video. I’ve learned a lot from this and now I think I can give myself a try. Awesome!

  8. Carolyn says:

    Now I know how to draw a decent action pose! LOL! Thanks! I hope you have more video tutorials ok?

  9. Miaka Yuuki says:

    gacial features need work though. At fist glance she looks like a dude no pun intended.

  10. MIco Robin says:

    So in terms of the villains we get story progression. But in the heroes we get tutorials? Not that I am against drawing but as for me I am invested in these guys not drawings.

  11. Yayoi says:

    Not very good at drawing but this tutorial is great! From simple forms then bringing them together to create a recognizable human form. Amazing!

  12. Sloane says:

    Project-X Champion Reisha reminds me of Chun-Li so much. I think it’s because they’re both tough female fighters who can kick any man’s ass.

  13. Kenneth says:

    I wanna try doing this when I get back home haha. I doubt I’ll it as good as the video though

  14. Lillian says:

    I wish I know how to draw. I really suck at it :/
    I’ll try this out though.

  15. Gerry says:

    Please do a video on how you color those drawings. I want to see it done.

  16. Flame says:

    Hey what about doing art with powers and not just martial arts. I want to see drawings like that.

  17. Dae says:

    This is amazing. I feel like I’m in art class or something. I honestly learned more in this tutorial than I’ve learned in art class.

  18. Josh says:

    Thank you for sharing your talent! I went back and checked the previous video tutorials because I wanna be a graphic artist too. You guys are so generous!

  19. Claudia says:

    Wow it looks so easy and simple but I still can’t make a figure out of compressing circles. I need more practice! Thank you for this video guys!

  21. richard says:

    I so love the idea of using shapes in drawing or animation. Thanks for this artlcle and for giving me the idea.

  22. alfred says:

    amazing! I didn’t even know drawing using shapes is possible . The result is really cool!

  23. Bryant says:

    Simple trick but does the work well. Could be better though.

  24. AmyK says:

    The drawings are cool. Nice trick as well. Keep it up!

  25. Zeus says:

    He is a great artist. But does he do animation or just still drawings?

  26. Bobby says:

    This is my first time seeing somebody draws using shapes. I wonder how he learned that?

  27. Mau says:

    I’ve seen some artists create drawings on the fly without any outlining and their art still looks perfect. I never quite understood how they do it as I always do outlines myself first before filling in the details.

  28. Very cool video. It’s cool how every art piece can be broken up into shapes. Dig the Zina looking lady fighter. I hope you make more.

  29. Khan Thot says:

    Wow you made it so easy! I still have to practice drawing the human body form and get the curves and silhouettes right. This is very helpful, btw. I hope you make more tutorial videos.

  30. Jhonamae says:

    This is a great tutorial. I can now learn how to make action poses!

  31. It’s nice to get a gradual feel for the process. Cool how you can figure a body in different directions for a cool action pose.

  32. Jacques says:

    It is really nice of this site and the artist to share this with everyone. A lot can be learned from this tutorial. Even better, even kids can follow this with ease.

  33. Meg says:

    I really find it hard to draw silhouettes especially of people. Good thing I came across this video. I can’t wait to try these techniques for real. You’re the best! 🙂

  34. Iago says:

    Thanks for sharing these techniques. I feel like I have learned a lot just from watching these videos.

  35. Jessa says:

    This is pretty nice! Definitely gonna try this trick the next time I’m drawing! Keep it up!

  36. Savitri Cornish says:

    For amateur cartoonist such as myself, these art tutorials have been a godsend! Would love to get more tips about drawing realistic body proportions, too.

    Can’t wait for the next art tutorial… !!

    1. Mau says:

      I’m an amateur cartoonist too and this tutorial is so helpful and interesting!

  37. Zeus Hack says:

    I’ve known the basics of sketching but I could never get it right the first time! Your tips have been very helpful, Marcos. Thanks a bunch!

    Now, I can get back to flexing these rusty drawing muscles!!

  38. Renz says:

    More please! I love the way he draw. Can you draw fighting characters?

  39. Summer says:

    Cool character. What is Reisha’s power?

    1. Cia says:

      Don’t think she has powers. Not like the boys. Maybe it’s something they will add in the future?

  40. Iago says:

    I’m so impressed with your art style. With just circles and lines, you have created an amazing work of art.

  41. Virginia says:

    Although I’m not an artist myself, I enjoyed all your art tutorial videos. Looking forward to more art videos! Keep it up!

  42. Chie says:

    I did see Disney artists using circles and lines to create silhouettes. It really is a nice tip! Thank you.

  43. Ann says:

    That’s actually a nice trick. Like a cheat code for drawing or something. Very impressive. I’ll definitely try this out.

  44. Christianne says:

    Very educational. You can see how simple lines can be used to show movement. Looking forward to more tutorials!

  45. Leila says:

    Great! This is one of the things I look forward to because I wanna be an artist too. This is very very helpful.

  46. sa says:
