earring tutorial

Some quick tips for head angles.

The head rotates on an axis, where your spine meets your skull. That axis is where your jaw ends and your ears begin.

Since the head rotates around the ear, the ears actual position will rarely ever change. It will always be at the center of the head, only the face moves. The location of the face vs. the ears is what truly conveys the angle the head is at.

Someone on ig asked for a tutorial of how I do taako’s ears? I wasn’t sure if anyone else was interested but I got a lot more likes than I usually do, so I’m posting it here too!

I saw few times that people tend to draw ears on anthro/furry characters a bit wrong. The problem is they look like “floating” over the head, not “growing” straight from it. The simple step to change it is that you should cover bottom part of the ear with strands of hair. Just one or two curved lines can make it better in my opinion.

(sorry for any grammar mistakes)

Cosplay Mini-Tutorial:
Twitchy Kitty Cat Ears by ThinkGeek

I am working on a Sakizou costume (the White Rabbit), which has rabbit ears. I was trying to think of ways to make them move, when I found out that ThinkGeek had already done the hard work for me! Their robotic cat ears are fun, and very customizable. They come with a fur cover, which I forgot to take a picture of. The fur cover can easily be taken on and off.

On to the customizing! Almost every bit of the ears can be unscrewed and taken apart. There are two screws that hold the ears to the headband, and three screws that remove the plastic casing around the ears themselves. You could even unscrew bits of the smaller casing holding the mechanical bits together, but I didn’t try that.

Once I took the ear casing off, I centered the headband, figured out where the ears would poke out, and then cut a small notch in my wig (not through a weft) in order to fit the casing through. After getting the hair settled, I reattached the ears to the headband, and then reattached the ear casing.

Elf Ear Tips

I’ve had some inquiries about elder scrolls elven facial anatomy and bone structure and I thought I’d start out by showing how I tackle elf ears since they’re the most prominent feature in comparison to humans. This is my general approach to elves in general.

Since I mostly draw male dunmers I’ll be focusing my examples on them. Also this is just one of many possible approaches and not a rule.

First off, elf ears come in many sizes, shapes and colors in Tamriel and here are just a few comparison shots from in-game dunmer.

From left to right: Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Elder Scrolls Online

Now lets take a look at a human ear. I used one of my paint studies of a regular ear (my ear to be precise). It should be a lot brighter than in my drawing but I tried to give it a bit of contrast to wrap my head around it.

The landmarks tend to be broken down into a ‘hook and a ‘y’. Now to apply this to an elven ear I usually just ‘push out’ the tip and give it a crease (like a bent hook). I usually readjust the ‘y’ to ride along the upper ‘ledge’ but sometimes I attach them further apart. When I doodle I often skip the ‘y’ part.

I use the first one the most. I usually use the second one in combination with shorter elf tips since they can look very chubby and cute with the more rounder and soft shapes.

And some edits to my study to make it more ‘elf like’.

And here are some examples of how I’ve drawn some elf ears in the past;

I finally started work on those pose tutorials a bunch of you guys have been after! I’ve split it into sort of a mini-series, covering different things in each video, so far I have;

  • How to: Create basic in-game poses using blender
  • How to: Create group in-game poses using blender
  • How to: Create CAS poses using blender
  • How to: Append EA objects into blender
  • How to: Append CC objects into blender
  • How to: Append CC accessories to the hand in blender

so basically my question is; can you guys think of anything else that needs to be covered? I want to be as thorough as possible! 💕

easy miraculous ladybug earrings tutorial for people that don’t have holes in their ears, but holes are okay too

hello, children of the void. 

so. anirevo’s coming up in 2 days, and i realized i forgot to make ladybug earrings. i looked around the house and here we are. yet another crappy cosplay tutorial.

(apologies for the bad photo, but i sincerely do not give a crap right now.)

(once again, i ramble a lot. bear with me.)

you will need:

  • those stud push pins with weird emojis on them (you’ll know what i’m talking about once you see the pictures). i have no idea where they were from but we have them. you could probably find them at walmart or something?
  • exacto knife. i know it’s X-acto but that looks stupid so we’re going with exacto.
  • acetone (nail polish remover) and a thing to remove with, like a cotton pad. my acetone is strawberry flavoured (I’M KIDDING IT’S SCENTED DON’T PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH) but any flavour will work.
  • black micron pen
  • red nail polish
  • eyelash glue or other skin adhesive
    • alternatively, you could glue those earring things onto the back of it if you have holes in your earlobes. i think hot glue or superglue/that e6000 stuff works well. i would suggest not using hot glue unless you don’t have an alternative, because it’s messy and doesn’t stick as well. 

rest of it is under the cut because i’ve rambled enough already
