anonymous asked:

how do you make your art look like it glows? you don't have to answer if it is your special technique

no special technique at all haha, it’s actually pretty simple! i used medibang to create this, but the same technique can be used in photoshop!

  • (1) have the elements you want glowing on a single layer. if you want the glow to have a particular colour you can make those elements that colour.
  • (2) duplicate that layer and set the top layer to the blending mode ‘add’. you can find this option at the top of the box with all your layers (the default setting is usually ‘normal’). you’ll notice that the elements will now be lighter!
  • (3) while the top layer is selected, go to filter > gaussian blur (or if you’re in photoshop filter > blur > gaussian blur). then play with the values until you get you desired glow effect. if you want the glow to be more intense, you can duplicate that top layer and then adjust the opacity to get your perfect intensity.

another way i get a glowing effect on my painted characters is with an overlay technique. i basically create a new layer on top of the character/object and then set the blending mode to overlay. i then take a big airbrush with a light-ish highlight colour and blob in some glows next to areas of sharp shadow!

hope this was helpful!

Hello again guys!  Here are some tips about brushes- once again, I’m no expert, so explore these points on your own!  Some of these are a little more abstract, while others are to help deal with minor brush annoyances ;)

1.  PHOTOSHOP BRUSHES are based on a “stamp” system, not a brush system like some painting programs. That is why photoshop brushes are great for things like chains and repeated patterns, but you have to fiddle with them a bit to make them look natural.
2.  The first brush setting underneath the brush panel you must become familiar with is “transfer.” this tab plays with the opacity and flow of the brush.  
3.  As stated in previous tutorials, the essential hotkeys for brushwork are:
[/]= brush size larger and smaller
alt= eyedropper tool
Numbers= opacity of brush
Shift+Number= flow of brush
4.  Brush icon not showing up/ behaving correctly?  Usually one of four things: Caps Lock is on, Edit in Quick Mask Mode is on (which can be found on your left main tool panel), the brush blend mode is on a different setting (found next to opacity and flow), or you have something selected (crtl+d will do the trick). 
5.  DON’T knock the photoshop brush sets that come with the program.  Many artists I know use these brushes while tweaking the settings.  Consider utilizing settings such as dual brush and texture to make these ordinary brushes great.
6.  Brushes with large amounts of detailed texture tend to pixelate and not work correctly when scaled down too far. 
7.  Trying to create a natural brush tip? Brush settings>Shape Dynamics> Angle Jitter> Control: Direction. This will make the brush more natural and dependent on how you stroke your pen. 
8. Do you use a signature/watermark a lot? A certain shape or pattern? Make it a brush. 
9. When changing things like opacity and flow in both the brush settings and the layer settings, Photoshop will sort of get “stuck” there, and you will see the number highlighted.  Simply hit enter (don’t bother reaching for the mouse!) and it will go away.
10.  Rotating the canvas will help you with your brushstrokes. Shift+R rotates the canvas in nice equal increments, and is a easy way to set the rotation back to 0.
11. Texture brushes just don’t look right?  Make a selection, zoom out, and make the brush slightly bigger while you paint. Think of them as big sponges, not brushes.

Thanks again guys! I have a lot of tutorial requests from you, and I’ll be working through more soon!

hello! i’ve been asked about how i make my animations many times so i decided to make a quick process/tutorial post. in the pictures above, you can see my whole process for this little animation. (btw this was done on photoshop cc). 

basically, i made my painting; while keeping the butterfly on a separate layer. then went to timeline -> create frame animation (just like when you’re making a regular gif) and created new layers for each frame. then i painted the different phases of the butterfly’s movement. each time, i made sure to keep the butterfly in the same place (you can do that by having the previous layer/frame underneath at a low opacity to check on its position). make sure to play the animation regularly to check on its fluidity. once you have all your frames ready, you can save your gif (export -> save for web). 

i hope this was helpful, it’s the first time that i make a sort of tutorial. if you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

anonymous asked:

Can you give me some advices/tutorials on how to make gifs? I suck at it and hell, I've been trying to gif for two days and I still can't :(

Of course! Let me just say when you start off making gifs it can be very difficult and confusing (I know it was for me). So I’m going to try and give you lots of tips and things that I’ve learned so hopefully you can skip lots of the hard parts I had to learn on my own. Also don’t get discouraged if you feel like your gifs aren’t turning out amazing, you’ve just started and it’s taken me over the course of 3 years to start making ones I’m actually happy with, as always practice gives you experience! Anyways enough of my rambling lets get started.

Camp Camp Summer Line by Christine B. (@ah-gavino)

It’s almost time for summer campers! 

This was just a little project I had been working on for a little while, and I wanted to share it!

Hope you guys enjoy them!
