i have to put it on photoshop

axentis  asked:

hey as a digital artist that uses sai too, i was wondering how you have such clean straight lines, circles, and curves in your art? also how long does it take to do your pieces on average??? btw your art is really gorgeous and i really admire your skill....... youre talented as hell

Hello! For circles, I had to go to Photoshop for that, since SAI, unfortunately, doesn’t have a circle tool. I used Photoshop’s circle tool to make a ring, saved it as a png, and I just use that file to put circles into my pieces in SAI. But if you don’t  have photoshop for that, then you can try this, >video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct6c2ck_fB0 which is a pretty dang neat trick 

If I need to draw straight lines, I tap on one place on my canvas, hold the shift key down, and then tap somewhere else. SAI automatically connects the two places I pressed with a straight line, as long as the shift key is held down. However, once I start painting, I don’t always do that shift key trick, I just paint freehand really slowly along the straight line. I find the results more natural, or at least as natural as digital can get. haha

As for curves, I just do a stroke really fast and hope for the best hahaaha (cry)

I sometimes have to try again and again until I get the curve I want, but I mostly get there in the end lol. The main thing for all the things above is patience and to loosen your hand, so keep at it! 

On average, my pieces take around a week to a week and a half to complete. 

Thank you! I hoped this helped :D 

edit: here’s the circle file! it should be the original png, so feel free to download it/save image, etc.

Update

So, it does seem like it’s official, but I’ve been handed down a computer by my dad (with h o l y shit much better specs than my old computer that I’m having a hard time adjusting to how quick this computer is in comparison to my older one (no lagging brushstrokes every 5 minutes in Photoshop).

So it’s still taking some time to re-set up, and we’re still going to try to revive the windows partition on my old computer (or something) so then I could retrieve some licensing stuff (if not, thank god there’s other ways these days).

BUT I’m underway with having a computer to do artwork on!

I’m also, really just going to just put my foot down soon for my application and portfolio for next year’s course 👀👀👀. There isn’t any reason why I should be stressing so much over it omg.

bud i don’t discuss his sexual orientation. the most i do is jokingly call him a gay icon every so often, but ive also called him a lesbian icon and a transmasculine icon, so uh, take that with a grain of salt. i’ll analyze homoeroticism in his songs till the cows come home because it’s fun and because it’s stuff he willingly puts in the public view, but i do my best to explicitly separate him as a person from his artistic output. i have certainly never posted an image manipulation of a pornstar with his erect dick out with sufjan stevens’ face photoshopped onto his face.

i cant stop you from doing what youre doing, but i definitely have the right to criticize you for it

Okay but why did Harry have to look at the picture of him and Louis to say it was photoshopped? Like my dude I thought ya were just friends? And why did he look mad shaky? Ain’t ya just friends? Also, why that lady seem disgusted by my Tiny Son and my Alien Son kissing? I mean we know the answer to that but let’s put that seemingly homophobic woman on the spot.

It’s February the 13th! It means that I’m on tumblr since 1YEAR :3 !! Thanks for your support and the lovely comments, I have a lake of self-confidence so it helps :D <3 ( I think I already said this somewhere else…) I want to do so many things and explore others stuffs than character design. I will put really soon some of the 3D works we do at school, it takes a lot of time but I love it (:

Here a fanart of Harley Quinn to show that I’m not winter sleeping (: 

Please read.

      So today, my Adfly account got deleted. Someone reported it, that someone was @fortheloveofsims4 / @xajxosimsaddicted / @justanothersimplayer or whatever this girl wants to call herself. 

     She’s against adfly, like I’ve never seen before, she’s been commenting on many creators posts that use adfly, trying to create drama. She’s a pathological liar and very stubborn. She commented on my post telling me to stop posting adfly links because they are bad, or she would “make me do it”. So I sent her a very kind and peaceful message, asking her to stop commenting on my posts and trying to create drama. Her response was not so kind, she insulted me in many ways, simply because I use adfly… She said that she would expose me to her “thousands” of youtube subscribers. I tried to explain to her why I use adfly and I told her that if she doesn’t like my content, to simply just not download it! She still didn’t understand and kept insulting me, so I blocked her.
     A few minutes passed and I received a message from other account, her “friend” saying that I made the biggest mistake of my life, because she has 1.8 MILLION YOUTUBE SUBSCRIBERS and she would expose me! (LOL) I answered telling her to leave me alone and that having 1.8 million subs was impossible, and blocked her again. So she sends me an image from ANOTHER account, with “proof” of the subs:

As you can see, she sent me a very bad Photoshopped pic, she put her name (not even with the youtube font) and her icon (completely out of the square limits the youtube icon has lololol), and it seems her 1.8 million went down to 500k…. but anyways. I replied saying that the pic was photoshopped from aviatorgamez, and this was her reply:

Of course my first thought was, “this girl is crazy!” and thought she wouldn’t actually do anything. But it seems she did. And it seems she’s the one behind all the reports on tumblr lately, every blog that got reported was probably because of her. I’m giving her the attention she wants, which I shouldn’t, but I just wanted to warn you about this person.

TL;DR

     My adfly got suspended because this girl reported it. I’ve lost all my earnings and all my links, I’m working at the moment in replacing them. I can’t wrap my head on how someone can do this to someone. I’ve done nothing wrong to anyone. I simply share content. I know it’s not the best way, but it’s the only way I can share it. Yes, I used 2 adfly links, which is very annoying, I understand. But earnings on adfly aren’t much, this way was a way of making a more significant amount. I am a student at University by day, I have a part time job by night, and on my free time I make cc for you, for FREE. I live alone, I need to pay rent, food, tuition, everything. The Sims and adfly have literally saved my life at times, because it was a little extra money, that helped me a lot.
     I’m not saying this for anyone to be sorry for me, I hate that, because I’m not the only one and there’s people with much less than me. I just can’t understand how someone is capable of just ruining someones work, just like that. Why can’t they just ignore and leave people alone doing their own things? If you don’t like something from a creator don’t download it. Why go to extreme measures and report them? Literally ruining a life of someone just for the sake of it. I truly don’t understand and I’m very very hurt. I’m sorry for the long text, I just hope some of you read it and understand my point of view. I’m sorry.

Peach Puff Color Pack

A new color made for the Berry Pastel Rainbowcy, or just if you needed some peach in your life. The pack includes a new eyecolor, a photoshop action, and my skintones (since I couldn’t get the new color to work as it’s own package I added it to my skintone package. Just replace the old one if you already have them installed). As you can see, I’ve sorted the color to just show up at the end of packs since I don’t know where I would put it in the sequence as is. 

I included the action so that you can recolor hairs as you please. I will be doing a bunch of hairs tomorrow if you have any suggestions of what hairs you’d like in this color. ♥

dave ubercharge’s really good meme baking tutorial

i serve the people.

i usually use paint, photoshop cs6, and paint tool sai, but you can do this on just ps. the reason i also use sai is to speed up the ‘saving as jpeg multiple times’ thing, and i think sai’s low quality jpeg is lower quality than ps’. without further ado:

1. pick the text. this is the most important step, of course. for this tutorial, i will be using the text ‘my nipples are fucking frozen’. i said this in a competitive match once when i was very cold. we still won.

2. pick a relevant image to use as the background. you can also use a solid colour or whatever else you want, but i think images are funnier. i’m gonna use a picture of a blizzard from google images (filtered ‘labelled for reuse with modification’).

3. apply the text to the image. i do this on paint because i’m fucking lazy and the kinda but kinda not anti-aliased text edges are funny to me. you can do this on photoshop. i use large size (large being relative to the image) bolded and italicized arial.

i gave myself a bit more canvas space for the next step.

4. apply the same text on top in a darker/lighter colour. i like putting it to the upper left of the original text. with ps, you can just fiddle around with the 2nd text layer to get it in the right position. with paint, you might have to try wiggling the text box a few times. it’s a waste of time compared to ps but for me, it’s just a part of the process making the end product funnier.

make sure your text is visible on top of the image! if it’s not, no biggie, use the fill bucket or just try different colours.

5. apply an overlay on top if desired. red is funny, but it doesn’t really work with what i want on this specific image, so i’m gonna use blue. it doesn’t really matter because the following steps are gonna ruin the colours anyway.

i used a light blue with linear burn. i saved it as a .jpeg after this.

remember to have lowest quality. even on this small version, you can see the start to the terrible things this image is going to endure!

6. here’s the fun part! you can mix these steps up, but i’ll just show how i more or less usually do it. go to filter > sharpen > smart sharpen. you can fiddle with the sliders and whatever.

save the image as a .jpeg again.

7. go to filter > blur > motion blur OR filter > blur > radial blur. motion blur is the diagonal (or up/down, or left/right) blur, radial blur has both the spinny and zoom blur. you can use more than one, if you want. since my abomination is already kind of annoying to read, i’m going to be light-handed with a spinny radial blur.

wow! that already looks pretty fucking bad, but we can go further:

8. go back to filter > sharpen > smart sharpen and apply that again. you can also do more overlays and blurring.

i decided to do all of that. here it is with another blue overlay, motion blur, and radial (zoom) blur.

i changed the sharpen settings before sharpening it again. do whatever you think looks good (or bad).

here’s the final image:

you can keep going, but i have stuff to do. some better baked images of mine:

i have a thing for 1. cropping the text weirdly and 2. red

other stuff you can do includes:

  1. doing both (or 3+) text layers on paint with a white bg, then stretching it weirdly before pasting it on the image bg (transparent selection, 2ndary colour should be white)
  2. using the fucking impact font for bad memes
  3. using lens flare (funnier if you have eyes in the image)
  4. stretching/distorting the image at any point
  5. using other filters, ps has plenty. experiment!
  6.  repenting

the beauty of this is that if you make mistakes, you can just re-bake the image, apply more effects, and it probably makes the image funnier.

Some overwatch characters. 

I’ve got requests to draw these characters together. I just fell in love with the diversity of Overwatch female characters.


—————————————————————————————-


Hello. I usually don’t write a long comment on my own post, but I have to say something.

First, I got the point that Sombra and Pharah look brighter than they should be. However, my intention was ’not’ to them look more like ’white’. As you can see, I made Zarya’s skin tone comparatively brighter than Pharah, also Widowmaker vs Sombra.

I don’t play this game. And when I drew them, I simply used few images as references to figure out overall colors. With the photoshop, I put some effect to look them in the light, as a result, they kinda went bit brighter than I originally painted.

After I read a comment, I searched for images that all Overwatch characters standing together to see the comparison. And I realized they are actually darker than I thought; especially Pharah.

I don’t want an argument over this. You can get your own opinion over things you saw on the internet, but I have to give you some explanation since I drew them.

It’s kinda sad to see someone call my stuff out as ’white washing’.

Also, the waist. As you can see, I didn’t draw Zarya’s waist so small with Pharah. And yes, I drew her waist tiny at the one on the top.

I really appreciate of the diversity Overwatch characters have on their body shapes, age differences and ethnicities especially, female characters.

Bottom two pieces, I was focusing on showing the differences between characters like their faces, height, body types….

The one on the top was more freely drawing. I never drew Zarya before this request, and I simply wanted to draw her for my own. She seems like a super strong badass fighter type kinda woman, and I loved it.

Thing is, I love to draw ridiculously tiny waist either for men or women. I like it because it makes curves and contrast of shapes. It is fun to draw. If you check my other stuff, you can see I draw tiny waists a lot. It’s just my style. I honestly was more focusing to make her arm and back look strong and big….

@sujimoon89 This is my twitter and I have more stuff here. You’ll see my point. I am guilty drawing specific body types over and over. But I’m also aware that many artists deliver a certain type of body shapes when they draw female characters and it should be changed. So I admit I have a habit and I think I should show more diversity on my drawings.

However, I’m also saying I made her body looks like that not because I think female body only supposed to look like that nor only small waist with big boob and hips are attractive. Thanks. -Please, be understanding about grammar. My first language is not English.
