LET ME SHOW YOU THESE 738 PICTURES REAL QUICK
heyy i have a question, I do fanarts too (not as good as you) and everytime i look at my art i feel like its 'too' digital ?? And idk what to do about it its really annoying me :( do you have some advices maybe ?
Hey :) I’m sure your fanart is very good :) But too digital you say?? Ok so I did this quick summary that can help you a bit, at least I hope it’s helpful :) It shows more or less how to make your art look more real and traditional(ish). I use paint tool sai so I focus on that but it’s the same with other programs I guess.
So first of all brushes:
The best are those which look like traditional media (pencils, watercolours, ink etc.) Notice that they rarely have regular edges and most of the time they have a little bit of a texture, they aren’t too smooth, when you draw with them you see the brushstrokes.
Then there are textures:
Textures make everything better x) They give you this paper-like look and the drawing becomes much more interesting. It’s always better to use more subtle textures (or low the opacity of a texture layer) to avoid the “fake effect” (dunno how to call it but to much texture looks weird and distracts from the drawing itself.)
And some tricks(?):
How the paint should blend? How do markers work? With some help of layers and effects that every drawing program has you can make things look more traditional. Also using the right colours makes a difference. Shading with grey colour will always make your drawing look less lively and real and more flat and boring (unless you do b&w of course ;)).
And when you combine all these things:
It’s just an example but shows more or less how it works. I try to use traditionally looking brushes and even if I draw with smooth, round brush I want the brushstrokes to be visible (I almost never use the blur tool) because I don’t aim for hyperrealism. Idk what else to add…
Experiment! :D With digital you can always undo ;)
ok pls help me out real quick: do i have rly bad memory or did i miss the episode with some guy who flirted w/ lena? the last episode i remember was the one where kara told mon-hell all she needed was supergirl and him (*throws up*) and there were no more recorded on my tv and i just googled it but found nothing? siuhEF i'm sorry i'm a mess,, i love ur blog tho
Metallo gave Lena a very flirty prolonged look when she was leaving the getaway vehicle in Luthors to enter Lex’s warehouse and it was very out of place and strange , especially cause he dies RIGHT after this. Lena looked disgusted. So I call Harold’s revenge
Happy birthday Tom! Tom is one of my best friends so a few weeks ago I started working on a quick picture for his birthday during a stream. Well I didn’t like how the sketch was going so I scrapped it and did another real quick, and I thought it was ok. Well then a watcher (Stooge) said “You should finish that first one!” and I was like “I can’t afford to-” and he was like “Take my money!” And i was like OK! So I did the second one as a commission and- it turned out pretty nice! So thanks Stooge, and again, happy birthday Tom! Hope you’re up for Streaming more Friday night :P
There are people who legitimately think its ok to attack someone for making a mistake or harass children for saying something ignorant/insensitive.
Before you decide to go after someone for something consider:
a) unfollowing and blocking them
b) doing your research & making sure you’re well informed. Did they say this 5 years ago? If so they’ve probably changed since then.
c) consider whether this is a real issue or just some innocuous thing like a headcanon you don’t agree on (if that’s the case, see a).
d) approach them calmly & politely and point out their mistake. If they don’t apologize and try to rectify their actions, then you can safely believe that they are in the wrong.
e) don’t tell people to kill themselves. Stop doing this. I don’t care who they are.
Alternatively: leave people alone; you aren’t and have never been perfect yourself
ok guys, so i did some quick research and i figured out that metal levitation is done from magnetic waves. peridots are full of magnesium and are currently classified as one of the most magnetic gemstones on earth.
i think it’s cool to know that peridot’s power is based off of a real gemstone fact!
quichehound asked for some pics and reviews of the slo-bowls, so I did a real quick photo session tonight using Mr. Loki. I’ll make a separate post for each bowl. I’ll tag them as “reviews”!
First of each photoset will be Loki being good about waiting for the “ok” cue before diving in. :D
This is the Flower.
I’d say this is our FAVOURITE of the four options. The areas vary in width, perfect for their snoots and tongues. Nothing is too thin or too wide. It’s not excessively deep so it’s not hard on their lips or noses. It makes them take longer to eat but doesn’t annoy them in any way. It’s definitely our favourite and the woofs!
do u kno in the sixth grade my English teacher had rats as class pets named haiku and limerick and I once wanted to stick my finger into the lil slits of the cage bc ppl always did that so the rats would nibble and sniff on u and I had never tried so I was just like ‘ok lemme talk to limerick real quick :)’ but as soon as I stuck in my finger this devil heathen rat grabbed and bit the living fuck out of my finger w/ no provoking or warning at all and I just wanted to tell that story bc rats are hard as fuck that lil bitch snatched my twelve year old ass it was literally a no words situation it didn’t give a fuck abt my feelings and to this day I still don’t know what I did for that rat to decide to release its demon ass rage on me bc neither him or his lil friend ever did that to anyone else in the class the entire year and it was really an unasked for turning point in my life
