Chibi Tutorial: The Squiggly Bean by Karijn Chibi Tutorial: The Squiggly Bean by Karijn
Since everyone liked so much the last stupid tutorial I did, I made a more 'serious' one. With minimum hair involvement.

And while the Squiggly Bean does help in chibi drawings in breaking the monotony of a still character, the real (and only) solution is imagination.

And when you think that you have gotten everything out of something... Well, take a break, get a cup of tea and think again. ;)

I have used the bean body for my chibis for a while but I needed some sort of input to make the poses more dynamic.
This visualized the possiblities for me. Thank you!! :heart:
