How do you paint hair and skin? Because I love the way you paint ❤

Aww thank you! ❤ This is a big question to try and answer briefly tbh but I love, love, love talking about painting so…

  • I use lots of references.There’s so many variations of skin/haircolor, texture, styles and lighting out there! (I horde stuff to Pinterest. lol)
  • I reference the masters as well.These guys already figured this stuff out and we just gotta take what we want from them. My favorites include Howard Pyle, J. C. Leyendecker (prob the most obvious), Tom Lovell, and John Singer Sargent.
  • For hair, I think about the overall shapes and chunks rather than strands. You can always get more and more detailed as you go. Simplifying something you’ve overwrought is a pain in the buns and a waste of time.
    • I have a video on my IG here that’s just me doodling some hair fwiw.
    • James Gurney has a couple of good blog posts here and here.
  • For skin…
    • Skin will pick up color from its surroundings. It’s also not just a “skin tone” with lighter and darker variations. There can be so many unexpected colors in there! This goes for pretty much everything in a painting too though so… XD
    • I often have to select all the skin and lessen the contrast and/or saturation a bit to get it to look right. Selecting it and playing around with colors and tones can be super helpful. (I love digital art.)
    • Color zones! People have different underlying colors all over their body. I did a post several years ago on the color zones of the face here. Also here’s a post where you can see it on a hand study.
    • As far as technique, I don’t blend a whole bunch in general and when I do it’s just here and there because I will go overboard and make a mess. I’m personally not a fan of “airbrushing” skin on with super soft brushes but some people are and that’s cool! That’s a style/workflow choice.

Color and Light is my #1 recommended book. It has helped me so, so much. I can’t praise it highly enough.

(I’d love to do more tutorials. It’s just a matter of a)finding the time and b)feeling like it’s worth doing when there’s soooo many amazing tuts out there already! I certainly don’t know it all but I enjoy trying to teach people what I feel I do kinda know. lol)

Sabertooth at Christmas time.

So my friend wanted me to draw Rogue with a ribbon and Sting in dorky clothes, and this picture just kind of… expanded from there. The sweaters are made by Yukino. She discovered knitting and embroidery and worked so hard on them that no one had the heart to tell her that they were the definition of fashion train-wreck. Sting and Rogue wears theirs with pride. The Fairy Guys laugh at them until Erza decides that knitting is an excellent girl bonding activity and none of Fairy girls apart from Juvia can knit.

jettsettrolls  asked:

hey corii! i was curious about what brush you use to shade / color with? i lost almost all my sai brushes when i reformatted my pc so i'm collecting some new ones, if you don't mind sharing!

I shade with my pen and erase away with my airbrush! Sometimes I actually use my nebula brush to add texture to things because it’s probably one of my favorite brushes c:

I usually just color with my pen too honestly? A lot of my brushes came from @vile-bile‘s Sai which you can find here !


@cheesedemon think I have more blonde wigs if you want more photos, but here are the different ones I have easy access to on my phone.
The first one is a Dollmore with a darker blonde wig, the second is a Dollsoom with a light and long curly wig (that needs to be rubbed with a dryer sheet, I know.) And the last two dolls are both from Dream of Doll sporting blonde SD wigs I have.
Hope this helped! If you have any questions you can feel free to ask.

I guess this is a somewhat self-portrait. Me as a firebender.

I love Avatar the Last Airbender a lot, and I always loved the designs for the characters and shiz, so I decided to finally draw myself.

Also, this is my first finished piece on Paint Tool Sai, which I just downloaded today. I’m already in love with it. Blending is so smooth and there are so many dif. textures. I’m excited to start using this more often. :D

Metaphor isn’t just decorative language. If it were, it wouldn’t scare us so much… . Colorful language threatens some people, who associate it, I think, with a kind of eroticism (playing with language in public = playing with yourself), and with extra expense (having to sense or feel more). I don’t share that opinion. Why reduce life to a monotone? Is that truer to the experience of being alive? I don’t think so. It robs us of life’s many textures. Language provides an abundance of words to keep us company on our travels. But we’re losing words at a reckless pace, the national vocabulary is shrinking. Most Americans use only several hundred words or so. Frugality has its place, but not in the larder of language. We rely on words to help us detail how we feel, what we once felt, what we can feel. When the blood drains out of language, one’s experience of life weakens and grows pale. It’s not simply a dumbing down, but a numbing.

So I was working on the loose crop sweater for a couple of days now, and naturally the mesh gets fucked up in the actual game…Tries not to murk everyone in a 10 mile radius. 

Its literally the cleavage and shoulder area the game will not fucks with. (Anybody really good with clothing meshing and wanna help me fix it?) 

I’m probably gonna have to trash the sweater cause I don’t feel like messin with the damn mesh anymore. I’ll use the textures for something else I guess, I had so many cute textures, cries.


On the other hand I have some other cute shit done :) If you couldn't guess its oil spill collection part 2: MER-BABE
