there was also a dude who impersonated an MI5 agent and he very apparently took his titles from james bond, because his IT company was in trouble and he didnt want to lose his boat. and then he just. kept going with it
oh my god
this guy is my hero
did you ever hear about the guy who just. he just really hated the nazis. he was this italian guy i think? and he really wanted to spy for the allies but like?? no one would listen to him. so he just went to the fascists instead and was like “hey i’ll spy for you” but really he just fuckin trolled them and gave them fake info to fuck with them. and eventually MI6 hires him like “damn dude you actually are pretty good at this” and he was like “yea no shit i tried to tell ya” and he made up a bunch of fake identities to screw up axis plans and make them think they were being targeted by some sort of deep cover black ops hit team
anyway yea he’s kinda my hero bc he single handedly fucked with a good amount of axis higher ups out of pure fuckin spite and if that ain’t a damn mood
Hello hello, your art is awesome!!! I was wondering... do you maybe have any advice on digital painting? More specifically a portrait and skin especially! I really really struggle 😔
Hi there!! Thank you!!!
Advice on digitial painting… Well, don’t do what I did. I got my first tablet (a wacom bamboo fun) i was in 8th grade I believe. I loved that thign but mostly used it for photomanipulation. Then, a year later, I got a Wacom Cintix 12wx. I tried painting with it, using it for about two years and I honestly got so frustrated that I have up. This past summer I finally sat myself down and committed myself to it and i’m so glad I did. Thats probably the best advice I can generally give. Just commit.
As for portrait and skin, really pay attention to facial features, where the shadows fall. What I see many people do is just give a flat tone over the face and maybe add in shadows. Don’t forget, there is a skeleton with muscle beneath the skin, and if done improperly, it wont look realistic at all.
As for skin, I personally edit photos and then eyedrop the colors from them. I’m not the best at skin tones, so i rely on my references. really, i dont understand how people /dont/ rely on references for realistic skin lol.
here is a video where I paint Lysandra’s face. I hope it can help!
“Mr. Weasley conjured up candles to light the darkening garden before they had their homemade strawberry ice cream, and by the time they had finished, moths were fluttering low over the table, and the warm air was perfumed with the smells of grass and honeysuckle.”
The only thing on my mind today was Andrew Minyard and his mocking salute.
It’s super shaky, messy, and rough and the quality sucks sooo bad (I’m sincerely sorry for that, I had insane trouble with the size and resizing, it’s super annoying plus tumblr loves to screw the quality) but anyway.
Now I really wanna animate a few scenes from the books (will only take a life time but whatevs, do I have something better to do with my life ? Yes definitely..but do I care? No.).
Also, thank you for 200 followers and welcome to the fandom who ever just discovered it!!
