Mercy & D.Va, I love drawing Overwatch characters sooo much.
oh btw, I wanted to note: I’ve been posting more frequently on Twitter lately if you want to follow me. There’s a high chance you’ll see new artwork there before Tumblr. Instagram is where I post progress sketches too.
I’m just REALLY in love with this game, you know? (Mainly because it reminds me of Epic Mickey)
Anyway, I don’t really have any sort of story behind this other than I just wanted to draw some angsty Bendy. And yes, this IS a Steven Universe reference.
Also, random headcanon that Bendy’s “meltiness” largely depends on his emotions. He’ll start melting more and drip more ink faster if he’s feeling extremely angry/sad/anxious/any other negative emotions. And that he cries ink for reason. Yeah.
More Feysand cause I want to improve my concept of both of them (plus I’ve wanted to draw this scene since the moment I read it); I’ll probably be doing a character portrait for each of them soon-ish too :D
Now that the semester is coming to an end, I thought it’d be a good time to offer up commissions.
I’m still working on my more polished style, so I’m offering the lineless style for 10-15 USD depending on complexity. I can also do these up to half body. A simple face and more detail in hair and clothing can be added, but unless specified they’ll look like the above examples.
They’ll take 2-3 days depending on start date and level of work load.
Payment is accepted through paypal only, via invoice. Please send all commission inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any other questions or concerns can be sent to me through tumblr if you’d like. I will post finished commissions to my tumblr for archiving purposes, if you’d like me not to or to save it for a later date (if the art piece is a present perhaps) just let me know!
Had a conversation with @rukkilill a while ago about guys wearing skirts, and now my headcanon is that Ville would 100% not know or care about human gender norms, so he’d wear all the pretty outfits. ^_^
I may go through with this AU idea thing I’ve been kicking around afterall? I have no idea of a plot(plot? What’s plot?lol) I just want to draw things. And I’ve got an idea of hinata as a crow demon and he’s kinda stuck in my head. So, the only logical thing to do would be to actually draw it, right? Lol
It’s really an excuse to draw characters with cute pointy ear, fangs and/or claws. Cause I live for this kind of thing.
Hello, yes, hi, I recently found your art and account and I love what you do. I'm turning 14 in April and I've asked for a drawing pad, but I have no idea how to use one as of yet. Have you got any tips or anything? Because I've wanted to try digital art for a while and your art makes me want to even more lmao. Thanks! - B.A.
BOI OH BOI DO I GOT SOME TIPS FOR U <3
(I’m not sure what kind of comp you’re going to be using, so I’ll list for both.)
FIRST: Drawing Programs; the free and the great.
-Firealpaca: Lightweight drawing program. I draw Recovery using this! It’s easy on the RAM if you have a weak comp/are paranoid about yours like I am, it is mainly for basic comic making, and has all the basic brushes you need (pen/pencil/airbrush/symmetry/etc). You can add your own brushes as well but they’re p basic settings. Has basic Animation/Gif making as well using Onion Mode! Layout is a piece of cake. Please note that If you leave it open for a week it’ll crash on you, even if you haven’t anything on it at the moment, and sometimes the brush sensitivity just stops working so you just have to close and then open it again. (Also I have no idea how to update it aside from deleting it completely and just downloading the new version from scratch, so thats a thing.) Mac/Windows
-MedibangPaint: This is basically FireAlpaca But Better. Has tons of screen tones, brush patterns, and tools. I don’t use it much because I’m used to FA’s layout and get confused with the the placement of tools in here, so if you can I highly suggest just going with this first. Also has basic animation/gif making! Has storage for the website as well, and you can upload more preset brushes. It’s v anime. This program has waaay more in terms of basically everything, so it just takes more RAM. NBD, you don’t have to have every brush downloaded from the storage ^u^. Mac/Windows
-Clip Studio Paint: Okay this one isn’t free, it’s a pricey one, HOWEVERonce a year they take the price way fuckin down by at least 75%. Sign up for the email list and it’ll let you know when that precious day comes. It’s how I got it @u@, around christmastime? This program is basically MedibangPaint On Steroids. I do all of my digital-yet-tradition-style-painting on here! The brushes all have some neat af settings to play with, you can make your own brushes, has tons of screen tones, pre-made panels, and settings. You can save projects as basically anything you need, is a hardy program that almost never crashes, and It’ll take a nice chunk of space on your comp depending on how much memory you have but hey, its worth it. It’s much more complex layout-wise than the other two here, but you get used to it after playing around and watching tutorials haha.
-Mischief:It’s a 25$ app, has like four brushes and five layers only but is vector-based with an endless canvas. Not really worth having unless you like the vector thing. UP TO YOU. I spent forever with this one doing all that homestuck stuff, so it’s not really bad so much as it is a basic bitch. Mac
-MyPaint:I used this a bunch when I still did digital art on my windows laptop before I upgraded to a Mac. It’s easy on the comp and has plenty of brushes and settings. You can also get brush packages if you don’t feel like you have enough that comes with the program! Also has endless canvas; pretty sure you can just select an area and then export as is. I barely remember the rest but It’s pretty great. Windows/MacPorts(which I hate)
-GIMP: I hate this thing. I cannot figure it out for the life of me. It’s got loads of shit though, can handle layers, has plenty of brushes, and can do basic animation/gifs if you ever figure it out. Windows/mac
***You can always pay through the nose/use a student discount for the photoshop series and pay that shit monthly, those fuckers have literally everything, but I am a cheap college kid making minimum wage with a car payment; I’d rather just pay once/not at all.
TABLETS: treat that shit like a newborn babe 24/7
-I have literally only ever owned a Wacom Intuos4. It has lasted me six years, and at least five moves across many miles. I broke one of the cord ports the day I opened it by holding it wrong, have one left, and now treat it like it’s going to die if the cord moves badly. Please be aware that if you break both ports, you better either sodder it back together yourself or upgrade to smth else because it costs about as much as the tablet itself was bought at to be fixed. Good news, though, it comes with at least six extra pen nibs, has programable buttons on the side (that I have never bothered to use) and a scroll bar in case you’re too lazy to use the keyboard (…I don’t really use that either unless I’m just scrolling through tumblr LMFAO).
-I would die for a Cintiq.
HOT TIPS: its useful.
-most of the programs listed use the same keyboard shortcuts. MEMORIZE THEM. It’s pretty easy, since you’ll use em a lot. [cntrl/cmmd+T] lets you resize what you just drew on that layer, and [cntrl/cmmd+z] is undo. I use those the most, for obvious reasons.
-vector-based programs are pretty great because when you resize an image it looks prefect. You can’t do that with a program that isn’t, so I just resize the base roughdraft and draw the lineart again on the layer above so I don’t get weird JPEG quality lines.
-You can use a ruler with your tablet, just slap it on and go, but honestly most programs have settings for that. just use those.
-You can also trace stuff on your tablet, so long as the paper isn’t too thick. I just scan/take a photo and then open it up in the program, though. much easier.
-SAVE CONSTANTLY. Art programs like to crash on you, even when they’re hardy and you have a good comp. make it a habit to quick save your work.
-Use a desk and have good posture. You’ll be able to draw a hell of a lot longer if you do. I personally keep fucking up my knees by sitting on my legs as I work out of habit, and don’t actually have a desk chair. Keep your screen at eye level and at a fair distance to prevent eyestrain and also neck-strain haha
-Chances are you won’t be used to the tablet right away. Most places you buy from say it’ll take a couple of months to get used to how weird it is to draw while not looking at your own hand, so don’t be frustrated If your drawings look a bit off at first.
-if you draw at least one thing every day, by the end of the year you’ll have improved exponentially. I literally made this blog to make myself draw once a day.
-don’t be afraid to check out speedpaints and tutorials. It’s always good to get more familiar with the program you’re using and new techniques previously unconsidered.
-get familiar with clipping layers. They are insanely useful; you clip one layer to the one below and then when you draw it only shows up on the drawing of that layer below. Shit is a godsend if you’re bad at coloring in the lines/lazy. The bucket tool is also really useful, and you can adjust the expansion by pixel so you don’t miss anything between the lines.
-experiment with your brushes, shit be fun af
-warmup your wrists before and after drawing. prevent swollen veins and such. dont want hand pain/numbness, its reaaaaally bad.
—basically if your hands hurt stop for the day.
-PNGS are for internet, JPEGS are for printing/fucking with quality (cough hack homestuck)
-resolution doesn’t have to be much more than 350 dpi if its just going to be on a webpage. Maximize that shit if you’re going to be printing, though. Especially if you put stuff on redbubble.
-DeviantArt has this thing called Sta.sh where you can dump art, keep it in perfect quality and just share it with certain people with a link instead of all of the website. Great for storing commission pieces, its the only reason I have DA in the first place.
-you get a different audience depending on what site you use for posting art, so keep that in mind for the kind of feedback you want.
-after awhile of drawing using a tablet, you may lose patience/forget that in traditional art there isn’t an undo button lmfao It’s cool; you don’t have to choose one over the other or anything.
-Honestly you can work around almost anything. You just invent new ways and techniques for yourself and you’ll do just fine.
Aaaaand that’s all I got for today! Thanks for sticking around <3
I found these images for body language meme, I don’t know if she/he has a Tumblr and the only clue I got to give credit is the deviantart on the images reincarnatedparano.deviantart.com and I’d really love to try it, it’ll really help me practice to do full body and also chibis so… Make requests! Tell me the character of Miraculous that you want the pose with and I’ll try my best at doing it, it can also be couples and stuff like that, I’ll do what I can!
I’m sorry I haven’t been drawing much lately. and I’m mostly saying sorry to myself because I really want to be drawing more than anything else. I could say I’ve been feeling down lately or something like that but I haven’t, there’s really no excuse for it. I’ll see what happens. Might actually do some updates for @create-anon or something. We’ll see
If you draw a sigil on your skin, what do you think the best way to activate/charge it would be? :)
“Best” is not really a term I like to use for witchcraft anymore. Because different things work for different people (even the same methods can produce different results), there aren’t any surefire methods that are guaranteed to be awesome for every single magic user - it comes down to what you have access to, and what you want to do. Experimentation is important to find out what works for you. :)
I like to draw sigils on the pulse points - so the ideal one being the wrist - and let the natural flow of blood through the body charge the sigil. It’s sort of like blood magic to me, but without needing to remove it from the body. The energy from the blood is still what charges the sigil, though it’s more about the movement I guess.
You could also kiss sigils drawn on yourself - if you can reach where you drew it, of course. xD Blowing air on a sigil can also prove beneficial.
Another idea is tracing the design with the index finger of your dominant hand, and with this you can channel energy into it from yourself or drawing it in from external sources.
If it’s warm and sunny where you are, you can expose the sigil to sunlight and have it charge with that potent energy. This technique can be applied with the moon as well.
If you’re okay trying methods involving pain, pinch the sigil, or snap an elastic band on it. My favorite idea for a charging method like this was drawing the sigil on the heel of the foot, then putting a small pebble in your show, and stepping on it. Boom, physical energy and pain. Of course, these methods aren’t necessary, just options.
Even washing the sigil away can charge it - destruction methods still apply. Use charged water (like moon water) for an added boost.
I know we mostly like to imagine the opposite, but adam is way more ripped than ronan. as ripped as a teen can be. hear me out: -ronan is a deranged insomniac drunk who probably only eats frozen pizza and warm pizza when he really wants to treat himself. as a perpetually drunk italian I can assure you that is no way to get a six pack -adam works manually like 10 hours a day. he’s a sexy mechanicist, the kind that you see sexy car-washing while completely drenched in soap in certain rated channels. he also moves rocks, works in a factory and somewhere else yet to be clarified, probably a sexy car wash fantasy commercial -when ronan punched robert parrish, all the odds were against him right? because robert is way bigger. you wouldnt expect him to win, it was a desperate, stupid move. but ronan is faster and even more vicious. imagine this giant angry man fighting against a scrawny emo teen, and the scrawny emo teen winning. that’s fucking awesome -ronan is a twink
