and some tutorials

Hi! I plan to make the costume of Elise from Fire Emblem conquest, and I'm stuck on how to do her enormous pigtails. I've heard of stubbing a base wig or using foam cores but can you please suggest a couple methods I could use for them? Thanks and you're the best!!!

I’d definitely go with stubbing the base wig, that way you can make the pigtails separately and attach them when they’re finished, rather than having to work with them attached to the wig. Here’s are some tutorials on stubbing a wig:

As for the base of the pigtails, I’d recommend either the foam inserts, a wire and tape base, or a fabric/stuffing plush style base! Here’s tutorials on each:

I hope this helps!

Completely random but I just wanted to say that I freaking love your art and I have no idea how you draw so much awesome stuff so quickly. I really really love your art style and if you had some tutorial or stream or whatever I would totally watch it in a sad attempt to 'learn' it!! You are amazing, thanks for drawing all that awesome mercymaker :D

Aaahh thank you so much! I absolutely love that mercymaker pic you did a few weeks ago, so I’m flattered! 

I was actually thinking about doing a stream, but I’d be like 20 minutes of drawing, 10 minutes of checking tumblr, 20 more minutes of drawing, wandering off to get a drink, etc lol. I’ll look into it though if enough people are interested!

Thanks again! I hope to see some more art from you too! :D

Color Reference Guide to Recognize & Avoid Whitewashing

I’ve made a tutorial on how to color adjust to fix washed out coloringsbut I noticed people aren’t always sure when their coloring needs fixing in the first place. So I’ve made a bunch of colorings you can use to compare your own to. It’s designed to help avoid whitewashing, but also help avoid over-correction.

If you’re not a content creator, you can also use this guide for reblogging as well. :)

Using the Guide

  • Each set comes in three: cool, neutral, and warm. If your coloring is bluer/whiter than the cool tone, consider readjusting.
  • Examples of what might be too pale/bright are beneath each set
  • There are various categories (daytime, night scenes, etc) for each type of scene you might encounter
  • Each coloring has a color palette beneath for the highlights, midtones, and shadows of the character’s face. If you’re having trouble eyeballing it, use the eyedropper tool to double check.

NOTES
1) For the sake of simplicity, I’ve used one character per category, but characters of color are not interchangeable. Identify the skin tone for the character you’re coloring and work with that. This is only meant to give a frame of reference for what is and isn’t whitewashing

2) If any of the colorings look different than what they’ve been stated as (i.e. the cool tones look too warm or some look way too dark to be visible) calibrate your monitor. It means your screen color and gamma needs readjustment.

Guide itself is under the read more!

Done with the artbook pieces, a self-rewarding quick doodle for me :’) Choi twins Mafia AU! If I’m not mistaken I’ve read on @promiscuous-jalapeno ‘s writings that Seven always carry guns everywhere plus wearing a hat. So why not make Saeran to double the fun <3 (Gonna draw a serious piece of them, kinda similar to this pose on my personal artbook later)

Sorry for the messy quality and if it’s not exactly like your writings bby ; v ; It just crossed my mind that I want to draw something after finishing the artbook piece. Gonna post the preview of kagehina piece + some of coloring tutorial which will be included in the artbook = v = /

anonymous asked:

so it's basically canon that kara is an artist so im kinda thinking that she'll be good with makeup too so every morning she does lena's makeup and she literally look like some instragram tutorial vid (pretty af) so one day maggie snaps a pic of kara sitting in lena's lap facing her while doing her makeup and posts it in on instagram... oh boy the comments

Ok but what about Kara doing Lena’s hair too?! Cause come on, she always has some ridiculous braid going on and I bet after the first time it happens Lena’s ‘fans’ always ask her for more pics so she indulges them occasionally 

Instagram PSD Tutorial: How To Use & Basic Help

So I’ve had a handful of people recently asking for help on how to achieve the results I did. As a novice once myself I understand how confusing things like PSDs and clipping masks can be so I’ve organised this (hopefully helpful) tutorial on how I did this graphic. I hope that after this you don’t have any more questions but if you do feel free to bother me with them, I don’t mind one bit! I’ll try my best. Please reblog/like if you found this helpful.
