Age Regression Process

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 15, 2011, 6:42 AM
Many artists consider AR a tricky art concept. Well, it is and without proper ideas about how it should be done, AR won't be AR at all.

This journal is focuses on
1. Presenting the a usual line where AR establishes itself
2. Monitoring regression spots in drawing
3. Suggesting the best way to present scenes in AR drawing

I. Presenting and establishing AR

To present and establish a good AR, we need to understand the concepts that govern AR itself.

1. Age regression in a character

The character changes age in a particular way. This should be manifested in how the character changes features.

2. Age regression with unusual Transformation

The character changes age as well as particular gender features. AR and TG go together in this form of AR.

---

II. Regression Spots in Drawing

AR should be manifested clearly. In drawing, remember that dominant features should be presented to determine the correct age of the character. In this chapter, I'll just present a female character and not the unusual or special AR. Lets have that for next time.

Presenting

Photobucket

This character should be around age 21. The body figure is mature and almost all of the lady features are describable.

Practically, a character with this feature is drawn with seven heads proportion

Photobucket

AR drawing can be easier if we'd follow the proportion rules. Please keep this in mind. Also, in every state that the character regresses, try to give breath to your character by making him or her create body and facial expressions that would suggest surprise, worry, doubt, confusion and any other describable emotion aligned with AR.

So, implementing theoretical ruling in AR, we subtract a single head from the character's proportion. Every single feature changes as it redirects us in the younger look of the character.

Photobucket

What features remain in this drawing that spells similarity in the former, older look of the character? What facial and body gestures are used to illustrate AR?

The character presented above is drawn using a six head proportion
Characters drawn using a six head prop are around age 14-18

Photobucket

The process in AR should be consistent

So, let have the next AR scene

Photobucket

She's drawn using 5 head prop
body language is suggestive of realization that change occurs

Photobucket

Change should now very obvious. Facial and body gestures suggest surprise

observe

Photobucket

in this one, the character is now drawn in 4.5 or 5 head prop
The transition should be made clear, please remember that.

Character is now changed in the young age around 7-9 y/o

Photobucket

drawn using a four head prop

Photobucket

lastly, let's have the final regression

Photobucket

drawn using three head prop

Photobucket

Done! but that was rough.

---

AR is an advanced form of art. Common sense in it is solidified in the manner on how the character was presented. It isn't easy but with constant practice in drawing and useful understanding on how the process should be presented, I believe you'd make it good.

Let's not forget the occasion when the clothing alters along with the regression, yes yes?

it's the easiest way to monitor the change for the characters

This is a good example of the physics of age regression! (Art wise) Nice job.

Hey do you know about the physics of Age Regression?(Regression wise) Like you can only regress someone to age 1 before magic prevents any further regressing.

no. I don't know its underlying physics. why'd you ask?
