Can I ask how you write a script for a comic? I love monsterpop by the way! Your art style is very cute!

idk you could go all out and learn traditional screen writing, but that’s too regimented for me, i pretty much just do like

george: *gazing whistfully into the distance* i sure would like to touch that butt

[G sheds a tear and turns away]

where *this means action done during dialogue* this means dialogue

[and this means longer actions, which could take multiple panels, and may or may not include dialogue]

that’s just my system, tho. there are probably better ones

I’m going to talk to her!”
“Sister, no!”

First Encounter

So I started writing the origin story for my HxH OC Setona and since it takes place 6-7 years before the main story, basically everyone is an OC and it’s great.

Also Setona’s older bro, Pohi, has made an appearance. Being Pohi is suffering.

Can you tell how little effort I put into this I am sorry.

Also sorry about my god awful handwriting. I have the lines as captions if you can’t read OTL

ifuckdemons

It took forever but i did it.
Im so sorry about how Olexa looks, I drew her according to the drawings that’s you’ve done I’m sorry if I got anything wrong.

I drew this thinking that maybe someone is taking a picture of them or something like that, and naya is extremely camera shy, thus explaining the blushing and Olexas question.

(I kinda stole the pose you used)

In case you can’t see it says:

Olexa: Naya are you blushing?!

Naya: shutup, no I’m not!!

Olexa is surprised because she’s supposed to be the shy one, and not Naya

There you go >.<

20 Writers on Writer’s Block

Writing like any other true art form can only take place when one is inspired. Considered a challenging profession and unique talent, writer’s block occurs as much as inspiration, which is why we have compiled a list of advice from 20 authors on how to overcome writer’s block. Humorous an wise, read on to find out what Charles Bukowski, Stephen King and Ray Bradbury among many have said. 

“I have gravity boots [to overcome writer’s block]. I hang upside down everyday. I realise it sounds strange, but it’s not all that strange. It oxygenates your brain. It helps you see the world in a different perspective.” -- Dan Brown

Can you do a tutorial on how you color it's amazing

I can try!

First, brushes.

  • I use kyletwebster​ gouache brushes, the eighth in the set for the line art/sketch and the 15th (i think it’s the 15th) in the set for coloring. The gouache brushes are slightly transparent so I can use one color to add a bit of shading instead of a whole bunch. (which isn’t a bad way to do it, it’s just for me, when i color like this though less is more) Also when I color I try to put down as much of one color without taking my pen off the tablet. If I don’t it’ll have a slight marker effect (which i also use when i’m lazy and don’t wanna erase)

First I start of with a sketch, usually in brown I set my sketch layer to multiply. This way colors kinda poke through the line art when I color it. (bc i’m a lazy piece of trash i left off the end of the keyblade. i told myself i did it bc it was better balanced in the frame but really i did it bc i was lazy)

I like to do my flats all on one layer. it’s less layers to keep track of and the paint can have a nice little bleed through effect that I like. All of these colors (except for the keyblade) are on the same layer. I then group my line art and flat colors.

On a new layer that I place above my color/line art group I pick a saturated color (usually blue or purple) and using the gradient tool (i have to transparent one that uses on color selected) I add some color. Then I add a clipping mask (right click on the layer and you’ll see the option) Set this layer to multiply and then adjust the transparency to your liking.

On a new layer I pick a saturated yellow-ish orange and use the gradient tool again, this time it’s on the top of the page instead of the bottom (or wherever is opposite of the “shadow” layer) This time I set the layer to screen.

Now I add 2 more layers, for using the same orange from before on the screen layer and the same blue for the multiply. I add more highlights and shadows on these layers this time with a brush. (I’ve also cleaned up the sketch some more.)

Woohoo we’re almost done! Now I add a layer and use the same brush I used for my sketch to add white. I kinda just put it where ever next to the line art, there isn’t really some complicated formula I use, I just mess around until I like it.

And finally I add a “filter” layer on top of all of the layers. imo it helps unify the colors. It’s usually always a shade of pink (i picked a really saturated pink but i mess around with it) and I set it to soft light. then I just adjust the tansparancy. Then I add my signatures and then I’m done!

Hope this helps!

“Paws Up!”: A Zine About Cats And the People Who Love Them

“Paws Up!” is a brand new zine that focuses on all things cats: the human connection with them, how great they are, how much they sleep, that cute little thing they do that you’ve convinced no other cat ever does, and everything else embodying why cats are so great.

Submission Guidelines:

  1. I am currently accepting submissions that include: visual arts (monochrome preferred), non-fiction, flash fiction (1,000 words or less), photographs, memoirs, poems, comics, any other format that can easily be placed into a zine!
  2. Your submission has to somehow be about cats.

These are literally the only two guidelines for this zine! It’s insanely open-ended because there’s so many different directions you can take this in that I do not want to limit anyone. You can submit as much as you would like of any format (you can also submit multiple formats at once).

All writers will retain ownership of their own work and will receive thorough credit in the printing of this zine.

All submissions can be sent via email to pawzupzine@gmail.com

Submission period will end on July 31st, 2015 at midnight.

Hello :) I was curious of how long you have been creating art, and how you learned how to create it? I am a new artist, so any advise would be much appreciated! :D

Hello! I’ve been posting art online for ten years this year and have been making art longer than that - since sometime in gradeschool? Granted, it wasn’t very good then, but I’ve been at it for long time.

Most of what I know is self-taught. There are tons of resources online now for anything you might need to know from tricks on how to draw specific things to more general tutorials on using certain programs or media effectively. You can also pick up books, take classes… but more than anything, PRACTICE! Practice all the time, look for things you need to improve, and seek out the knowledge necessary to upgrade your skills.

If you’re a new artist, I’d really just recommend drawing as much as possible and experimenting with what you’d like to do with your art. Get a sketchbook and a pencil - super basic! - and take them with you during the day. Doodle at lunch. Sketch on the train. Draw from life as well as your imagination. ESPECIALLY take the opportunity to listen to ideas that arrive suddenly or seem particularly demanding of you.

One experience in particular I had that I don’t often see talked about is that many artists seem to have Their Thing. You know, their signature stuff that they really love to draw most or are highly skilled at - Their Thing That They Do. It may take you a long time to discover what Your Thing is. You will get frustrated and dislike your own work and want to give up many times along your path. Don’t - perseverance is absolutely key to developing a style and finding Your Thing.

I was in a pretty bad place in my life when I drew these…

And now I do them all the time, like this:

Just stick with it. More than anything, do not give up, no matter what.

Who doesn’t love this man? Send him your love through this fanbook that will be given to him in September at Werewolf Con in Brussels!
His birthday is two weeks before the convention so send him your birthday wishes! ;)

He’s decided to leave Teen Wolf, for good reason(!!) and doesn’t seem very happy about it but let’s show him we support him Send in a personal message, tell him how mich you admire him or how much he inspires you! Make him smile, you know he will. He loves anything he gets :D

You can also send in fan art or ALSO a picture for a Love Is Louder project. Write ‘Love is Louder’ on your hand and take your picture with it. Then add a message “Love is louder than” + your personal continuation. A heart will be made with all the different messages :)

This is the facebook page where you can get more information and send your messages to: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tyler-Hoechlin-Fanbook-KLZ/467523253386592

There is also a birthday project for Hoechlin going on!!
Donate to Love is Louder in his name :) The certificate will be given to him at the same con. There will also be prizes and bracelets for participants ;)

"Vikklan" - an HTM parody of "Dance, Dance"

You say you’re no good with blocks but I’m worse
Barely built myself a house on the Lagoon, called it over and done
Weighed down with contracts, but will I kill you?
Tonight it’s “I won’t betray you,”
Vs. “but will you betray me like…”

I’m two wither skeletons down
So I will accept your help, I’m not too proud
These tracks are all I have, you can take them
Skellex works so I can get by

Vikklan,
The pixel art high up in the sky
Vikklan,
Reminds me of all you’ve done for me
Vik, this is how much I’d love
If I knew whether you would love me…

You always win just before you’re knocked out
Get on, it’s last call,
Need your help
This isn’t my first mistake and…

Guess who’s broke and taking another swing at commissions? It’s me haha. Alright, so basically I’m going to start doing commissions again, since I’ve improved and I’m really looking to start saving for when I graduate. 

These are examples of my drawings and the prices. How much something is can change based on things like complexity, and if it’s something I can do quickly and enjoy I might bring the price down if you ask.

If you have any questions just ask me, and if you’d like to see more art I’ve done my blog dedicated to that is thisshitisironic. Feel free to message me if you have any questions, and if you could please reblog this to get it around I’d be really thankful!

Lex’s $10 sidebar commissions are open!  ★  ★  ★

[ click here for my art tag ]

Hey everyone! I finished up some summer classes and have a bit of free time before anything huge starts again, so I figured I would open up some sidebar commissions! You can use these for almost anything- I’ve had people use them as AO3 icons, skype, tumblr, facebook, ect. Just make sure to credit me!

I can also do glitch animations like this if you’d like, (it won’t be as fuzzy) but it might take a few dollars extra depending on what you’d like and how much extra time it’d take!

You can contact me with questions and orders at lexcommissions@hotmail.com, which is also my paypal. The total charge would come out to $10.61 to cover any paypal fees. Please select the option for “goods and services, no address needed”. If they catch me using “send money to a friend” I could be fined up to $2,500! Yikes!

(If you would like a different styled commission, like full body or portrait, please contact me and we can discuss it as well!)

I just had a random thought and oh my god, how do people choose the title of their fanfics, especially the chaptered ones that takes months to write. I'm a really indecisive human and whaaat no. How. Anyway. Hope you're having a great day. :)

Well from my experiences with talkingtronnor and troyescoolshit, sometimes it takes them like days to choose the perfect title and weave it impeccably into the story (The Art of Falling, Can’t Look Away, etc.) and it’s like just pick a goddamn title omg, it doesn’t matter that much all the options are great.

And then sometimes it’s 5 am and they spent all night writing and literally couldn’t give less of a shit, so they come up with gems like “Stuck at Ikea”, which most shockingly, is about Troye and Connor being stuck at….. wait for it…… Ikea; or “A Football to the Face”, in which Connor hits Troye in the (prepare to have your mind blown) face  with… noo… it couldn’t possibly be… a football?!

So it varies, and sleep deprivation is definitely an important factor.

anonymous asked:

Can we talk about Hannibal washing Bedelia's hair? Hottest thing ever (it's a huge kink of mine. I don't know why). Symbolism wasn't lost on me at all, but just... THOSE HANDS.

Do you know what, we definitely fracking can. Imma gunna gif it tonight if I’m not too tired

But yes, lets talk about Mads for a second, he’s washing Bedelia’s hair like he’s cooking or playing his theremin or harpsichord, touches that look soft but are, for want of a better phrase, getting the job done.

He takes something as mundane as washing someones hair and makes it art, HOW?!

Hannibal is also completely consumed in the task, it has his full attention, so much so that when it is interrupted he almost freezes like some spell has been broken.

Love it.
