Hey! First off I just want to say that you're art is probably one of the best things I've ever seen. Like seriously, I was feeling kinda down and it put me in a great mood so thank you so much for that. And you're also such a kind and sweet person like???? I think you're just such an amazing person. Second I saw you say that when draw you use the default ink pen on paint tool sai with noise. What does 'noise' mean? I'm just curious. Thank you again and I hope you have a fantastic day!
Aw thank you so much. I’m always hyper critical about my own art and this made me feel a lot better. thank you for the kind message. Also, I was referring to this setting in SAI.
Summary: Soulmate AU in which whenever you write on yourself, it appears on your soulmates skin as well, and Hange is a horrible artist, much to Levi’s dismay.
A/N: First time posting one of my stories on here! Hope you guys liked it! I’ll be posting another part of this shortly which will consist entirely of Levihan fluff because I’m weak… Oops.
When Levi was little, the concept of a soulmate didn’t make much sense to him.
The earliest encounter he remembered having that involved his soulmate was when he was just about the age of four-years-old. He could still recall the way his mother’s light eyes lit up at the sight of the green lettering that appeared in a scribbled manner across the pale skin of his forearm.
“Look, baby, that’s from your soulmate!” She had said in a happy tone, pointing it out with her index finger. He had stared down at the lines for a minute in silent contemplation, before scrubbing harshly at the skin with the palm of his hand. His mother quickly pulled his arm away, his skin now a bright red from the friction he caused to himself. He didn’t focus on that, his eyes instead trained on the green marker that still lingered there despite his best efforts to wash it away. He promptly burst into tears.
hey I just wanna to pop in and say I love your style! Can you give any advice for playing out the composition of a drawing?
Thank you! Hmmm… this is a tough one. You see, playing out the composition of a drawing can be different for anyone so I’m not sure if my advice would be helpful or not. But here’s my process anyways~
For me, it’s all about trial and error. I’m constantly finding ways to improve my work and I like trying out different styles. I try to figure out what works and what doesn’t. For example, I used to use comic sans on my comics and now I don’t because well… it’s comic sans *So mUcH ReGReT*
Anyways, this explains why my art style looks a little different every time I post x)
So my advice would be to ask yourself, “What did I like about my last drawing and what can I improve on?”
And then I think about things like: What type of feelings do I want to convey in this drawing? What colours do I need to use to convey those feelings? Is there a story behind it or nah?
When you can answer those questions you’ll be able to compose your work or at least have a rough idea of what you want to draw :D
I’ll use one of my recent posts as an example:
For this one I wanted to convey a warm and cute first date kinda feel~ So I drew the four closer together and mainly used warm colours like brown and orange.
An example of trial and error: I was honestly going to post this one^ as the final draft but then I was like naahhh… I felt like it would look better if I made it a half body shot. Also, I initially thought that making Marinette’s hair brown would go with the whole colour scheme but it just didn’t feel right to me :/
So I made some changes (Alya’s lookin’ at Nino now ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° )), added just a few more colours, made it a half body shot, and then I was pretty satisfied
More advice: I guess when you finish your drawing just ask yourself, “Did I convey what I wanted to? Is there anything else I can do to make it better?” and if there is, you gotta add it! Or… remove what you need to :3
It’s also good to know the basic elements and principles of art but this is generally the stuff that I focus on. I hope this helps out a bit x)
Your older art style kinda reminds me of Vivzipop and everytime I see your older art I get a little bubbly cause I remember when I found both of your stuff (you and Viv's stuff), it inspired me to draw more and work harder to get better and be able to draw amazing things, sorry that was just something I've been thinking about.
ahh she was one of my biggest inspirations ever when I was first starting out haha!! her art made me feel the same way <3
Day 2!!! Monday is Dmitri. This didn’t come out like I wanted tbh……. I wanted to draw a kind of hoodie-dress kind of thing bc I thought it’d be cute and bc hoodies remind me of Dmitri, but… idk it kinda just looks like he’s not wearing pants. TuT; The hood also came out weird, alas…. I made some coloring mistakes when I was working on this too, but I did some last-minute changes to help it look a little better ahah;;;
anyway even though this came out kind of ?????, I do feel like I’m already getting better control w/ inking using a brush. >:Y SO THAT’S GOOD AT LEAST…
I love your art of robert in the bathtub, and also that you added the caption of mistakes happen, I thankfully haven't made one of said mistakes in three weeks, which is surprisingly good
Keep it up! :D
That’s kinda why I do it to characters, myself. Drawing out what I want to do, especially being invested in a drawing, helps me not do it. I get so invested into that the urges usually pass pretty quickly. Just finding a healthy way to get past those feelings and expressing yourself in better ways yknow
I wish the best for you, and thank you for the nice words lol <3
Hey, me again… You wanted an Undertake crossover so I made some quick sketches of what I imagined. I kinda lost interest towards the end, so they progressively get worse XD What do you think? I realised David would probably make a better frisk but then who’d be Papyrus? =~= aus are hard dude. I wanted to draw Preston as Mettaton but gave up. Anyway, hope you like them.
the noses! they're always drawn in a way that has a little swoop. the swirly troll horns too. and you have this way of colouring that's really soft and relaxing, and the tiny animations you sometimes add just make the feeling of Nice so much better. on characters that wear lipstick have just the top lip drawn in and i love that so much it reminds me of when i used to do that. you draw faces kinda wide and it fits in with the rest of the style so well and your style is one of my favourites its !
this just made my day i cant make an emoji to showcase how joyous this made me but i just wanna say thank you so much especially with the small gifs and colors because those are what i struggle with and that makes me so happy im astounded that its one of your favorites like do i really deserve to be up that high on the list? really? thank you bud its an honor this made my day
Hey Kochei, what's your opinion on Seiya? I never see you draw him so I'm curious! ( o3o)
hmmm well, i’m rather neutral about Seiya. i liked him better when he had a more selfish goal and a smugger attitude, stuff that made him different from others, then he kinda became very generic to me and his character stopped developping. and since we know about lotsa events of his life, i don’t feel like i have as much freedom as for the gold saints to come up with ideas for him.
of course the series isnt technically over, so there’s still hope but for now i’m not really interested in him.
My best friend keeps calling me trash (for having a fidget cube when she has a 12 sided one) knowing mine helps me focus when I physically can’t she also talks me I shouldn’t be in rap Hicks because I can’t draw and that her photoshop skills are better and she’s not even in my shop. I kinda don’t want to be around her anymore but she’s the only one who wants to be around me.
I’m so, so sorry you’re in this situation. And I also understand how you feel, because I’ve recently been faced with the same decision several times over: whether it was worse to be alone or with friends who made me feel like shit.
Listen: it’s very easy for people to tell you that she’s not a real friend and to just walk away from her and to brave it out alone. But when I was in that position, that’s not what I wanted to hear, because I knew that already. It sounds like you already know that, too. But knowing that doesn’t make the prospect of walking away any less scary. The fact that it’s the right thing to do doesn’t at all take away from how hard it’s going to be to do it.
So, I’m not going to tell you what’s right to do. I just want you to ask yourself these questions:
Does spending time with her refresh me, or do I have to psych myself up to hang out with her?
Is our friendship balanced or extremely one-sided–does she treat me differently than I treat her?
Think about someone else you really care about. Would I let someone treat this person the way she treats me?
and perhaps more importantly:
Do I like the person I am around her?
You don’t have to make any moves just yet. Don’t put the pressure on yourself to do something right away; don’t force yourself to act immediately. Just think about these questions and have faith in yourself. There will come a moment when the scale tips, when it becomes so clear what you want to do. Don’t be hard on yourself. Trust yourself and let yourself do what you need to do.
And just my two cents: I know that being alone is scary. Believe me, I know. Of course, you have all right to just cut her off completely, cold turkey. But if you’re not ready for that, you don’t have to let go of her all at once! Instead, you can just gradually move your boundaries. If you used to give her 100% of your time, attention, and energy, try dropping it down to 80% and see what happens. If you find that you’re a lot happier that way, try dropping it down to 60%. If you find you’re not ready for that, you can bring it back up to 90%. It doesn’t have to be a linear process. It doesn’t have to happen all at once. And it never has to get to 0% if you find that you don’t want it to. If you want to, you can still keep her in your life–just at a distance from which you’re still in control of the situation.
Good luck with navigating this tricky situation, and again, I’m so sorry you’re going through this. You deserve friends who think the world of you and take every opportunity to lift you up. Please keep me posted, and I hope this was helpful!
I feel like Kylo and I have a lot of things in common: we’re both dramatic giant babies, angry millennials in their late 20′s with loads of unresolved daddy issues.
Anyways, I’m starting a new year and just wanted to thank you all for the amazing feedback on my art and for sticking around. I really appreciate it and this blog truly made me feel a lot better when I most needed it, especially now :)
And also - wanted to apologize to my tumblr friends and people who sent asks for not being so available. Hopefully this little bump in the road will be behind me soon so that I can start drawing again.
I just wanted to let you know that I love your art work so so much! Your golden retriever piece makes me so happy. I put it as my phone background. Today I had a kinda bad day, but whenever I saw your drawing as my background it made me feel better for some reason. Thank you for being an inspiration to me, and for making such beautiful, happy pieces!
