heyy sono ancora in tempo per chiederti un Enj in #149 o un R in #78? i tuoi disegni sono stupendi, complimenti!! grazie✌
Hiii!!!!! Sorry if it took me so long, I’m really sorry!
alla fine ho fatto solo un doppio R, Enj mi si è cancellato tipo tremila volte e a quel punto ho capito che nè photoshop nè hugo volevano che disegnassi enj Spero ti piaccia, grazie mille per avermi mandato un messaggio e per i complimenti, davvero singificano tanto <3
translation: in the end I only drew a double R, photoshop crashed a thousand times while I was drawing Enj and clearly nor PS, nor Hugo wanted me to draw him Hope you like it!! Thanks you so much for requesting and for the compliments, it really means a lot <3
Things my job and college taught me about saving and backing up work:
Iterative saves. ITERATIVE SAVES!!!Make a new save every work session. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Also make one once you complete an important step (save for final sketch, save for inking one character, save for inking bg, save for animating a hand, save for first pass of animation). That way in case you accidentally delete a layer or your file gets corrupted, YOU DON’T HAVE TO START OVER!! Also this is good for when clients go “oh you know what, I actually like the look of this one thing from like 4 exchanges ago, can you change it to that?” Also in case the power goes out midsave and corrupts the file. Note: Google Drive automatically does iterative saves for a lot of things (docs, images, spreadsheets, etc) which is SUPER nice
If you work at company or are freelance that sends work files, please for all that’s good in the world, MAKE A SAVE BEFORE YOU MERGE YOUR STUFF IN A DRAWING PROGRAM! Some poor sap (possibly you) a year from now is going to have to tweek something and you are going to make their life an absolute hell when they find you’ve merged everything.
Save on a portable hard drive or an internal drive. Back that drive up at LEAST once a year onto a different drive or onto CDs/DvDs/Bluerays.
Save on Google Drive and/or dropbox. Have it on a cloud SOMEWHERE in case you need it. Especially for school projects because you probably will forget your portable hard drive at least once the day an assignment is due.
If possible, keep your Operating System (Windows and/or Linux) on a SEPARATE harddrive from where you save your work. JUST IN CASE your OS gets corrupted and you have to wipe windows. So get two drives, one for OS and your programs, another for your work and other stuff you don’t want to get accidentally wiped.
I know this is stupid and most people will ignore it, but have a naming convention for files. This way it’s easier to find in case something goes wrong or you have to find a file 2years later for whatever reason. A quick and easy one, Client_Project_Descriptor_#. Example: I’m doing a color piece intended for print with a rocket for SpaceX and this is the 4th time I’ve sat to work on it, I might do something like: SpaceX_PrintColor_Rocket_4. If you want something more specific for the work session number, you could do a time date stamp like YYYYMMDDHHmm (Year, month, day, hour, minute). There’s lots of variations, but that’s the easiest one I’ve done.
If you think about saving, save. If you’re working with other people, just saying “SAVE” out loud when you think about it. In school and at my job, a lot of people appreciated the reminder. This is especially appreciated if you notice something in your cube/side of the room flicker (an indicator that the power is about to turn off).
LEARN THE CORRECT SHORT CUT KEYS FOR SAVING! This is handy if your computer is hooked up to a power backup. Some places ONLY have the computer towers attached to it AND NOT THE MONITORS. So using the shortcut key, is very important.
Learn where programs save automatic backups and/or temp work files. If a program crashes, DO NOT IMMEDIATELY OPEN THE PROGRAM OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER IF YOU CAN. Google where the temporary files are kept, there may be a backup that way. This isn’t reliable and sometimes the file is partially corrupted, but this has saved my ass so many times with different programs
Have a saving “ritual” when you’re done working. What I mean is: name properly, local save, cloud save, flattened/combine/viewable save (png, jpg, pdf, obj, fbx, ect).
im super late to the elf au party, so i have a question that you probably answered earlier on. why are dan and phil's eyes different? in most of the art i've seen, phil's eyes look normal whereas dan's eyes are more, for lack of a better word, more demonic looking. are they different types of elves or something?
Yes - Dan is a dark elf. He lives in a very darkly lit area so his pupils take up his entire eyeball, to take in as much information as possible (that’s my reasoning lol)
What artist do you think has had the biggest impact on your life (btw I love your art)
ohhh kukiis art has inspired me so muuuuuuch in the time I’ve seen her art!!!
and james gourney, that man… he just is amazing and his art shocked me. since I met that artist I’ve wanted to improve every day of my life and gave traditional art a new meaning for me :)
since StinYu and NaLu are both for me more into great friendship - what is your mind on STINGUE?
Hmmm… I have an on-again, off-again shipping for Stingue. Some days I like it, some days I don’t. I haven’t written them together in any of my stories, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I dislike the ship.
Sometimes I see them as more like brothers, but other times I find myself liking them as a couple. I haven’t read much fanfictions with them together (I usually only read Nalu and Gratsu stories, so if they’re included they’re usually a side ship), but I do like the fan art I’ve seen for them together.
I really love that they’re so many different ships for Fairy Tail unlike some other anime. The combinations are almost endless. I respect everyone’s right to ship whatever they want, even if it’s not for me, but Stingue for me is a maybe. It really just depends on the day and what the content is.
So do you hate amedot because peridot is white...but you ship lapithyst and lapis is white too? Lmao
i hate amedot because people only started caring about amethyst when too far happened and its the equivalent of pharamercy racism in the relationship while lapithyst was born by fans seeing the equivalences in lapis and amethyst stories and saw they would get along extremely well if they actually interacted and ive rarely seen racist art / hcs on lapithyst so you thot bitch! also i ship lapithyst because that was the canon ship in my canon as amethyst so top kek!
