cause i used a tutorial for the base

anonymous asked:

Can I share a thought with you? Beauty Guru Yuri. Like idk he has a youtube channel where he does makeup tutorials and where he vlogs about his days and he makes makeup and clothes haul. And I just want Otabek to get this unhealthy obsession with Yuri's videos and he spends the whole night watching this gorgeous blond teaching youtube about smokey eyes and winged eyeliner.

Anon, I just had to.

“Hey, this is Yuri. Today I’m going to show you how to do a smokey eye. I know there are about a million tutorials of this on Youtube, but it was requested and I figured why the fuck not.”

Otabek snorted.

“So as always, all the products I use are listed in the description. This is not a sponsored video, it’s all my own stuff. But if Urban Decay ever wants to drop me a line, hopefully they’ll know where to find me ‘cause their shit’s really good. Anyway, let’s get started.”

Otabek watched the blond rummage for something in front of him that was just out of sight.

“I already did my base and there’s a whole other video on that, so check that out too, if you’re interested.”

Otabek had already, in fact, checked that out. About a month or so ago he was just casually browsing Youtube, when a thumbnail of something blond and pretty caught his eye in his recommended videos. Follow me around St. Petersburg the video was called. He clicked the link with mild interest to find one of the most beautiful boys he had ever seen, strolling through the city, frappucino in hand, making snarky comments at the camera. 

He found out that this guy was named Yuri Plisetsky and his channel consisted mainly of daily vlogs, videos in which he showed stuff he had bought which were apparently called hauls, Otabek had learned, and make up tutorials. Now apart from a smudge of eyeliner during an experimental phase when he had been sixteen, Otabek didn’t touch make up, didn’t particularly care for it. But then there was Yuri, with shiny blond hair that fell messily to his shoulders, high, sharp cheekbones and pouty lips to which he applied a candy pink gloss. His best feature were his eyes, spring green and clear as glass, looking defiantly at the camera even when he had just put on sparkly eye shadow. He had slender fingers and swore like a sailor and in a month Otabek had binge watched all of his videos and as a result knew more about liquid lipsticks than he ever needed to know. Yuri was fascinating. He was duality personified, long limbed and graceful, yet blunt and coarse. Otabek couldn’t look away. 

He had sat through Yuri gleefully holding up crop tops and platform sneakers and leopard printed anything to the camera, Yuri musing about his life in St. Petersburg, his fluffy cat on his lap, telling little stories and bitching about two guys he called Katsudon and The Old Geezer. He looked almost sweet and vulnerable in those moments and it had felt like listening to a friend somehow. Otabek had tried not to stare too hard at the blond in that try-on video in which he wore jean shorts which, quite frankly, looked about two sizes too small on Yuri’s surprisingly plump ass. The tiny see-through top he had been wearing wasn’t helping. Otabek could swear that the blond was eye-fucking the camera sometimes, cocking his eyebrow with a little smirk.

Don’t be a creep, he thought to himself, don’t crush on some random, beautiful guy on the internet. 

Don’t pause the video of him in those jean shorts.

But here he was, eagerly watching Yuri’s latest as soon as he got a notification, like a complete dweeb. 

“Now this look is pretty much suitable for everyone,” Yuri continued, “Looks good with any eye colour.”

Yuri moved closer to the camera. “It’s nice on blue or green, like mine. But I especially like it on brown eyes. It makes them even more smoldering.”

The blond flashed the camera the cutest grin. “I love brown eyes.”

Otabek could feel his pulse in his throat. He groaned.

Hello😀,I must say some of your art and it looks a amazing,I really want to know how do you draw bodies?

hey there, and thank you!

i usually use the very base of drawing body like male’s like a trophy and female’s like a hourglass. nothing special.

but when it come to kid (little kid actually), their body base looks like a marsmallow. You don’t have to worry about the gender body type cause most of the little kids have same body shape.

well, there also many other type of body, but for now i use this kind of base when drawing body. Sorry if my explanation is confusing, i’m not rlly good at explaining stuff. But hopefully these help you a bit ‘v’)

How do u make your horns?

Ok I don’t have an extensive tutorial on this cause I just,,, haven’t gotten around to it yet but for now I can give a quick rundown

I use aluminum foil and paperclay unless I’m making Tav horns or something. In that cause I use styrofoam instead of aluminum foil but the foam sheet things you can get at Home Depot work just as well. In all honesty I’d use that stuff instead because it doesn’t make as big of a mess as styrofoam, I just haven’t gotten around to grabbing some yet.

Make your base with aliminum foil. Make it near the size you want your finished horns to be, the less clay you have to use the better. When you make your horns make sure you’re making them as symmetrical as possible. Getting things symmetrical is basically just a bunch of eyeballing, there’s no trick to it. 

Stick your clay on and don’t worry about making them super smooth or anything, it doesn’t matter. Just lump some clay on. Just be sure to keep your clay symmetrical too, this is doubly important for curvy horns, like my Dammek horns. You gotta constantly check if things are curving the same way or pointing in the same direction cause it’s a lot easier to spot asymmetry on curvy horns imo.

If you have lots of time you can let your horns air dry but if you need them quick just stick them in the oven for a few minutes.

That’s what I mean by curvy. Super important to make them both even.

Also another important thing. Don’t do that thing where people don’t add enough clay to the bottoms of their horns. Rounded bottoms don’t look good so Don’t Do That. That’s not how actual horns grow so make sure you add extra clay to the bottom. When you’re done with these you don’t want the horns to taper at the bottom; the bottom should be your thickest point and it should have a flat bottom.

Ok, time to sand. Sanding is probably the most important step to me because I’m really anal about having perfectly smooth horns. Before sanding I use an Xacto blade and cut off any big lumps to make sanding go by quicker. I sand for a LONG TIME so this helps me out a bit. After that I use 60 grit sandpaper and sand until smooth. It’s very rare I have horns that don’t need extra clay added onto them after sanding. Cracks and dents and uneven sections of horns and areas that are too thin to the point of the aluminum foil showing through all get clay added onto them (If the foil is showing through, use something to poke it down.)

Once the added clay dries, resand those areas until smooth. Sometimes I have to do this several times for a pair of horns so don’t worry if it doesn’t look right the first time. After all that is done, I use 360 grit sandpaper and resand the horns with that. 360 grit is very fine and will make your horns smooth. If you only use 60 grit you’ll have marks from the sandpaper all over your horns. If you’re ok with that then don’t bother with the 360 grit but like I said I really love smooth horns lmao. The Dammek horns up there have been sanded with the 360. Smoooooooth.

Here’s a before and after sanding comparison of some old Tav horns. Also you don’t want a thick layer of clay on your horns but you don’t want them to be so thin that a bump to your horns makes the clay cave in. A couple millimeters thick is all you need but I do like to keep the tips of horns a little thicker just to make sure they’re sturdy enough to not break, should they bump into anything.

Here’s a pile of sanded horns ready to be painted. After you sand, the last thing you need to do is angle the bottoms (Some horns won’t need to be angled, like Terezi horns.) If the bottom is flat your horns will stick out at a bad inaccurate angle. I cut off just a tiny bit to get the horns to point inwards more, you don’t need to lop off a ton. 

Start small, it’s easier to cut off more than it is to have to add more clay and sand (Start off with cutting off like ¼-½ of an inch.) Since you’ll be cutting through aluminum foil, use an Xacto to hack away at it. After it’s cut off I sand the bottom a little to make sure the edges of the bottom are level. If I’m making horns for someone else I add a lil clay over the bottom to hide the foil but if they’re for me I don’t because idgaf.

After that paint your horns!! I use plain cheap acrylic. These horns are old and the paintjob on them isn’t all that great but it gets the point across. As I add each color layer I use the 360 grit sandpaper and GENTLY sand away any lumps the paint may have left. Once you’re done, seal your horns. I use acrylic sealer because it’s quick and leaves no brush strokes like mod podge would.

I use the screw method for my horns because using a headband just,,, it ruins it man don’t do that it looks so bad :[ ANYWAYS, I jab a hole in the bottom of the horn with a screwdriver and hot glue a screw anchor into the hole. (Hot gluing it in means it won’t come out accidentally but once the screw anchor gets stripped you can just grab some plyers and yank it out. Using superglue or e6000 kinda sorta guarantees you’ll never get the screw anchor out without making a mess of your horns.)

Grab a screw that’s not so tall it’ll poke out the sides of your horns but not so short it doesn’t support the horn much. You also need washers and something to put between the wig and screw. I used to use this dense cardboard looking stuff but I ran out of it so now I use wonderflex because idk that’s what I’ve got laying around lmao. Just find something sturdy.

You need the cardboard/whatever you’re using because if you just screw your horns in without something between the screw and the wig your screws will just go right through your wig and your horns will fall off. The cardboard keeps that from happening and also keeps your horns at the correct angle and stabilizes them and stops them from wobbling. The washer prevents the screw from going through the cardboard. The bigger your horns, the bigger you want your cardboard to be to make sure it can support them. For Sollux horns I use one piece of cardboard per side because it’s easier and stabilizes them more than if I had one piece of cardboard per horn. I also like to cut the corners off the cardboard so they don’t poke out of the wig.

That’s it!

Hear one step by step for you. Isnt a tutorial cause I really dont think my art is good enough for a tutorial, but someday maybe I will be able to help you with something.  

My steps:

1- position sketh.

2- lineart.

3- base color.

3- shadows and light. 

Of course, using different layers. I am thinking in maybe do a livestream (that is the word?) drawing something you want, what do you guys think? 

anonymous asked:

I just wanted to say you improved a lot like a lot this year!! What do you have to say that helped you improve this fast other than drawing everyday? also I wanted to know what program and brush setting do you use for line art and colouring? also can you ever make us a coloring tutorial please?

Holy crap you are the sweetest thing. I just sat here quietly squealing as I read your message~ So thank you!!

I think in the past I never quite knew how I wanted to actually draw.. like the techniques and I was constantly changing my mind on how I should paint until recently. I think I found an actual style that I’m happy with this year and since then I’ve been steadily improving. I’ve also found a lot of artists that inspire me and I’ve tried learning things from them. here’s a few off the top of my head: pigeon666, kelpls, kada-bura, sacetcendre, bwubwuartiguanamouth. Not to mention I’ve been scouring the world and internet for possible art references on architecture and lighting, among other things. It’s always good to use a reference and learn from nature.

Sometimes when I feel like i’m not really progressing I’ll think of something I can add and focus on. Right now I’m focusing on stuff like veins and more realistic eyes and fingernails… and like, light shining through ears. Also I think that drawing what you want to draw is really important. I decided a while back that I wont draw anything unless I actually want to draw it and just have a good feeling about it. And while I do draw almost everyday, I think it is also good to take a break every once in awhile. Play some video games for a few days or go on nature walks or play an instrument or even just take a break from digital drawing and do a few watercolors or sketches or something. Just let your mind rest and do something different for a bit. Get inspiration flowing through your body before you pick up a pencil. I think that’s good.

For the program I use Paint Tool Sai and for the brush settings i’ll do a smol tutorial with a drawing of my smol son  ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I start off with a softer brush to do the sketch.

do a quick outline, doesn’t need to be perfect cause I’ll paint over it eventually. I mainly use it for a guide

do base colors on separate layers with a solid brush. I usually lower the opacity on the sketch and outline layers at this point.

do some quick shadows and lighting with an airbrush tool. I like to do the lighting on luminosity

block out some colors and add depth. I like to use colors and not just a ‘lighter and darker’ version of the base color. I usually use purple for shadows and lots of reds and oranges for light.

paint and blend. I lowered the opacity on the outline and sketch layers again so you can barely see them. I also outlined around his eyes with the outline pen.

I got rid of the outline and sketch layers entirely here after I decided I was done painting. I use that water color brush a lot. It’s probably my favorite.

And for the last step I just did a small outline around the places I thought needed it. <3

Thank you for asking!! I think I’ll start posting more progress pictures and maybe tutorials in the future just so ya know!

For a school auction I have to decorate/transform a lamp to sell for charity, and I'm stuck. I have this medium sized table lamp that has a clear base which I wanted to fill up with something, but now I don't know what to put in it. My friend suggested buying a grow crystal kit and growing the crystals inside, but I did some research and it is expensive and not super reliable/fast. Any suggestions on what I should do? I'm going with a "dreamlike" theme cause the shade is a cloud. I have 5 weeks.

Hey, that’s so cool!! When you’re done with it, any chance I can see a photo of it! Seems like such a neat project, I’ve never thought of filling up a lamp base before! 8D

I’ve listed some tutorials that might prove useful to you, if not, feel free to ask for more, I’ll try my best to help out. I really like the crystal growing idea, too! Sucks that it won’t work out.

Anyways, good luck to you! Hope these will help!

DIY Bottled Nebula

This is one of my favourite things ever. It’ll look so cool with the glow of a lamp above it! Hardest part might just be picking colours. You need glitter, cotton (you could always tear an unwanted stuffed animal apart if you’re cold like me), and some food colouring or fabric dye. I think the creator recommended blues, pinks, and purples to work the best. 

And don’t feel too restricted to just adding glitter! 

Head to the dollar store, pick up little plastic toys! Tiny toy dinosaurs or a pack of glow-in-the-dark stars and sprinkle ‘em in (if you want)!

Try experimenting with some plastic water bottles for your colour combo first, so you won’t waste too much time trying with a big lamp base.

DIY Galaxy Glow Jar

This uses glow-in-the-dark fabric paint. Might seem a little counterproductive to paint a lamp with glow-in-the-dark paint, but it looks so cool in light! 

It’s a very clean and airy look if you’re not a fan of the more “heavy” and “clouded” look of the bottle nebula.

And with the paint, you have a little more control over what the result will look like! You can even paint constellations, little dots to shape a star, hearts, the sun, go nuts!

DIY Snow Jar

I’m a fan of how soft and dreamy this looks. If the lamp shade has a busy pattern, this would be perfect to accompany it, as to mellow out the composition.

DIY Paper Boat Vial

This is a video tutorial. I think it looks really sweet and dreamlike. Since the lamp base is probably way larger than these mini jars, you might find it difficult and a little expensive to fill so much of it with resin, BUT! I have an idea. 

Instead of making the “water” fill more than half of the container (you can omit the pebbles) and make a thin layer of “water”, maybe place more than one paper boat (if you want, this is subjective) and suspend cotton fluffs to be clouds from the lid.

Hey! I had the same problem too when I was working with my first long wig.  Styrofoam heads are very light, so they don’t hold well if you’re trying to brush out a wig on the edge of a surface.  There are better heads or stands you can buy to make it easier to work with, but I try to refrain from buying things if there is a cheaper method.

Basically all I do is tape the bottom of the head so that it’s more secure to the table.

anonymous asked:

I love your art style!! Can I ask you a few questions about it? How many years have you been drawing? Is it just a hobby or is it something you do for a living (Because, honestly, you totally could.)? Also could you maybe do a tutorial on how you color your lineart? It's not plain black and I don't know which colors I should use. Or maybe link some tutorials? Also the last eye tutorial you reblogged was amazing, but do you know any in English? I know this is a lot, and I'm sorry to bother you.

Hey hey! It’s okay to ask me anything and always remember you’re not a bother in any for doing so! To answer your question,  I started drawing in 6th grade? So about…10+ years? I used to draw a lot back when I started but I stopped after I became so busy with relationships and schoolwork that I hardly drew. I also had health problems to worry about so that added to my long hiatuses too;;;

Honestly speaking, drawing is more like a hobby for me probably because I don’t see myself pursuing a career in the arts (since I’m more inclined towards studying medicine) (˘・ᴗ・˘)

Coloring the lineart is quite simple! Here’s how I do it usually (bear in mind I use Paint Tool SAI!) :

(I just realized Tumblr shrunk this image but what you should click on is the checkbox that says, “Perserve Opacity”. Then choose a color and a drawing tool like the Pen Tool (on 100% opacity) and go over the lines with the desired color.)

If you want to be more creative, you can use the AirBrush tool + Blur tool and different colors for a gradient effect:

Depending on whether you’re coloring your drawing or not, if it’s colored, this is what I do (cause I dunno how to explain it in words):

As for the eye tutorials, the ones I reblogged were from pixiv so I doubt you’ll find much English-based ones there. What you can do is also look “eye coloring tutorials” on Deviantart. There are a lot of artists who  provide a variety of tutorials based on different art programs!

I hope this helps you in a way! If you’re a little more confused, you can ask me and I’ll do my best to help ya (cause I’m kinda terrible with explanations and such but if you can understand all of that, bless you) ~ ✌(-‿-)✌

Rose Quartz Dress

Hey everyone! Got 2 asks at the same time, so I’ll answer it all in one post. :)

I made my Rose Quartz dress! But it is not very accurate to her ACTUAL dress because the only photos I had at the time were her portraits in the background. Rose had not shown up in the show so I was taking an educated guess. I opted to make a simple dress with the idea that if it had ruffles or a slit I could alter the dress later. I am fixing the dress to be more accurate for Momocon 2015. So when I start work on that I will update this post. :) Ruffles and cupcake dress-ness here I come!!

Rose before she met the iron of dooooooom.

Here is a link to another post where I talk about the dress pattern. (Which is a discontinued Plus Sized Wedding Dress pattern. Simplicity 5207)  This is a good base for the dress, I just gave it a sweetheart neckline. My dress does NOT have boning in it because I used a thick matte satin so it stays up pretty good. I picked a princess seamed pattern cause it hugs the curves so much better! ^_~

Here is a link to a tutorial I wrote about the star on her tummy. I opted to do an applique instead of a cut out because of the nature of the star shape, I was worried the points would sag or it would be too difficult to stitch down. I was more comfortable with appliques. ^_^

The GEM is held on with Velcro. I sewed Velcro onto the dress, the soft side. then used sticky back Velcro on my gem. (which was a last minute replacement gem because my resin gem did not make it in time for the convention.)
The gem was a half of a Styrofoam ball, beaten with a wooden paintbrush to help compress the foam. I then used a foam covering (that I got at walmart next to the Styrofoam, I can not remember the name of it.) to fill in the holes. I then painted it pink. Hot glued felt on the back  of the ball, then added the sticky Velcro. The gem has a few cracks in it but I’m willing to try again but make it more gem shaped this time. :)
Tiny Floating whale was just poster board on a stick, that I painted. XD

Tutorial: Quick and dirty converting to teens

@simplyimaginarypeople got a few asks on how to convert to teen clothing. So I’m gonna spare her the trouble explaining it every time. So here it is: a quick and dirty way to convert clothing to teens.
Notice: These converted clothing won’t fully match with base game or eps clothing, cause the body is slightly different. Only other (quick and dirty) converted clothing will match. Shoes are not affected by this, both fit.


1. An older version of TSRW
2. Milkshape 3d
3. Mesh toolkit @modthesims
4. a morphed nude teenbody (export one from tsrw or download this one)
5. a bit of knowledge how these programs work

Let’s begin!

Step 1: Open up the file in TSRW you want to convert.
Step 2: Go to the tab ‘Mesh’ and press the export button and save it somewhere on your pc.
Notice: If your mesh has multiple groups, you’ll have to the next steps for every group.

Step 3: Open up Milkshape 3D and import the mesh you exported from TSRW

Step 4: Go to the Group tab and delete every group except the one called: group_base

Step 5: Export the mesh again as a TSRW object ( a .wso file)

Step 6: Open up the Mesh tool kit and go to the tab ‘Auto tools for WSO’ and then to the tab ‘Auto-create Morphs’
Step 7: In the ‘WSO mesh to morph’ you choose the mesh you exported from Milkshape and for the Reference WSO mesh, you pick the ‘FullTeenBodynoPreg.wso’ I gave to you or another a teenbody.
Step 8: Check the ‘Replace existing morphs’ option
Step 9: Press the button and save it.

Step 10: Go back to TSRW and change in the Project tab the age category to Teen. If any pop up comes up, press yes.
Step 11: Better change the title too, or there is a change your item will not show in CAS cause it conflicts with the adult version.

Step 12: Go to the Mesh tab and import your newly morphed mesh. On the pop-ups you press no and then yes.

Step 13: Fiddle with the sliders in the Mesh tab to see if there are gaps on the neck and feet.
Step 14: Go to File <Export the mesh and you’re done!

Your item should be wearable for teens now

Clipping issues

If your converting a top or bottom, there will be a small gap at the belly, cause your morph is slightly different than the base teen body. But if you match your item with another converted item, there will be no gap.
Example of what I mean exactly:

The top here is from the game itself and the pants from LBS I converted to teens. You’ll see a weird gap and it will not match at all. But if you use a top that is converted the same way as the pants then it will match:

Hunter’s Not-So Helpful Stylized Hair Tutorial

‘Cause I need it and a couple of you have expressed interest.

First, I sketch the hair in the color in which I’ll shade it (generally a desaturated purple) and choose the base color. From there, I pick a color to use for the highlights. Never pick a color with the same hue and different tint.

Then, I make a second layer underneath the sketch and lay the base down. After deciding whether or not I like the color, I merge the layers.

After that, I take my shading brush (found here) and lay on the base color. When I need to darken it, I lay on the sketch color.

After I’m content, I use a hard brush to lay down the highlights.

Then, I take use the shading brush and smooth the highlights. Additionally, I will pick colors from throughout the hair.

Put an overlay layer above and blend the highlight. Make it a clipping layer if you don’t want the color to extend the color beyond the hair. *I don’t know what happened with the hot pink, it’s not on the original canvas. It kinda looks cool, though.

Finally, I use a multiply layer and lay on the base color. You may want to clean up the area unlike I did.

I hope this helps, anon!

can u do eye art tutorial??? thank

i went a bit overboard with the eye tutorial my bad OTL but here we go

so i always draw both eyes at the start so they’re proportional and even when i work on both

details like lashes and creases and eyebrows are added in at this point

here comes the pupils //throws confetti// i usually draw in mini pupils tho i don’t always draw a full circle so yeah

here comes the colors. just the base shading and color. usually the middle color between the darkest and lightest color i plan on using.

shining details cause pupils aren’t one color lol color in them eyebrows and other shadows yo

let’s add some hair so we can see the shadows over the eye too

blend it in with blur brush and color int he hair with some highlights

the lines were too harsh so i dimmed it down and tadah. how i do the draw with eyes :^D

Where/ how do you get arm socks? ((I want to go rp as Aradia later in life, but I don't want to get paint everywhere.

Ya gotta make em! :0 It can take a few hours and it’s a pain in the butt but it’s VERY much worth it. You can hand sew them but if you have a machine then use that cause it’ll save you SO much time.

Here’s a tutorial on how to make them and unless you manage to find the perfect pair of tights somewhere else (Target used to carry gray tights but not anymore) I’d recommend you get your tights from We Love Colors. They also carry gloves if you really don’t want to make them, but I bought a pair and honestly they’re really gross. They’re kinda shiny metallic and the seams are incredibly noticeable (there’s also a seam going around the base of the thumb) and the fingers don’t conform to the shape of your fingers. If you’re fine with that then by all means get them but I’m extremely picky and didn’t like them at all.

Make sure the get the microfiber ones, the normal ones look grody.

Here’s what the microfiber ones look like ^^^

That’s what the normal ones look like ^^^ The microfiber ones look so much better; the normal ones are more see-through and the holes are very obvious.

I use the light gray ones cause it matches my paint perfectly, but if you still have some Ben Nye ghoul gray or something equally as dark laying around then the gray ones will be better. It all depends on your paint

Side by side comparison OF We Love Color’s light gray and dark gray tights 

But yeah the tutorial has everything you need to know. I also waited until my tights were sewn to make the nails because I found that sizing the nails when the tights were on my hands meant having nails that were slightly bigger than what you’d need if you had no tights on. The tights make your fingers wider and having tiny nails on them looks weird so wait to fit your nails. Just shape and paint them how you want and glue em on and you’re ready to go c:

I don’t headcanon troll nails as pointy but they look better on armsocks if they’re pointy to me, so I went ahead and made them pointy. I added gradients (the yellow is nail polish) with the same acrylic paint I use for my horns cause I thought it looked nice. I spent a good while making the tights as snug as possible on my fingers and I also made them when my nails were short. When my nails get long the tights kinda sit on the tips of my fingers weird so keep in mind when making them how long your actual finger nails are.

If you decide to make armsocks then rock on yo (and good luck)


So. There’s this new browser game being made that features a bunch of different anthro critters called Furvilla, and the developers had the good sense to include horses and give us the bases to paint our own custom versions.

I’ve been studying horse color genetics and putting together a massive tutorial on it. I could color different horse colorations for months on end.

THESE HERE are dun horses. Dun is a gene that causes the hair on the body of the horse to lighten, leaving the face and legs dark, and is known for giving the horse a dark dorsal stripe (not pictured here), as well as stripes on the horse’s elbows and knees, and occasionally shoulders as well.

Pictured at the top is my personal favorite and one of the most rare, a silver dun, also called grullo or silver grullo. Basically dun on a black horse. Bottom left is a red dun, a chestnut or sorrel horse with the dun gene. Bottom right is a buckskin dun, sometimes called a dunskin. That’s a horse that has both the dun gene and one copy of the cream gene, which causes both buckskin and palomino horses. Dun and cream combine on a bay horse to create a dunskin, or on a chestnut horse to make a palomino dun (not pictured here).

Before I go off lecturing (anymore), I’ll just leave links to more info on Furvilla.

When you were 14 (I'm 14) how did you develope styles..Did you trace? Did you use a lot of expensive art supplies?? ( I am sorry Im so boring, but I adore you)

I had begun saving up for copics when I was 14. Meanwhile I just used bic markers and micron pens to draw but I never traced cause it honestly doesn’t help you learn at all, it just gives you the easy way out rather than doing “trail and error” yourself till it looks right.

If anything, when I was much younger though I’d go on this one site called and copy from their tutorials; sometimes I’d trace the base lines (you know, the circles and guidelines) just to get the basic shape down but looking back, it’s really not helpful if you’re looking to improve, but I was like 6-10 so–

But back to 14, I just tried to create my own style by testing different things out and altering what I wasn’t happy with.
