Thanks for the tips before! So, a more specific question would be...How do you distribute the layers? Do you use a different layer for each color or shade? What about the lineart?

  1. Sketch layer: The time to ‘go loose’! Deciding my character pose, perspective, attire, rough BG (if any)
  2. Lineart layer: Correcting the sketch, such as anatomy, details. I need to be careful with this one since after I start painting, it’s difficult to go back and make big changes lol
  3. Coloring: Each ‘part’ gets its own layer here, sorted into one Color group. Around this time I also decide where the light source is coming from (in this example it comes from right), so I know where the dark and light parts go
  4. Coloring 2: Finishing up the color. I start from skin, facial features, and hair, then move onto other parts like the clothes.
  5. Shadow layer: I paint on extra shadow layer for emphasis. It’s kind of like if you look at your hand now, you can see the form of bones or knuckles, from lighter and darker skin areas. But if I hover my hand over the other, it will cast an additional shadow.
  6. Apply Shadow: Putting it on top to see how it looks. Normally I just paint it with the color layer on since it’s faster XD
  7. Rimlight layer: I like this step for some reason?! Makes the character stand out.
  8. Mood, Texture: I add extra layers if I want to apply additional color or texture filters
  9. Effects, BG: More layers for effects that go on top of the entire picture, and for simple BGs that go below the picture. Sometimes I work with the BG before the coloring stage to set a color mood

Hope this helps. Some artists might only work on 1 layer, or work in different steps, but do whatever works for you :D

what do you use to make your to-do lists?

I use Google Tasks! It’s not the fanciest to-do list app ever but it works for me, especially since I ALWAYS have gmail open on my home and work computers, so it’s always at my fingertips (plus there are apps to manage googletasks from your phone). 

To access Google Tasks, click the little red down arrow next to the big red GMAIL on the upper left of your Gmail page and select Tasks. A little to-do list will pop up in the lower right hand corner. You can let it hang out there, pop it into its own window, or close it down and then call it back up when you need it again.

In Google Tasks, you can make a single long list, or you can make a series of lists named different things – right now I have one for every day of the week, one for all the writing stuff I want/need to do called WRITING, one called MOVING listing all the shit I need to do to prepare for my eventual move, and one for all the Christmas shopping I need to do, called XMAS, which at the moment is just a list of names of people to shop for. (When I was packing for Disney I also had a DISNEY list that was a list of shit to pack on top and a list of shit I’d packed on bottom.)

What I like about Tasks is that a) it’s always present when I’m working and b) it’s fast. At work we officially use Asana, which is more comprehensive but much less efficient (you have to do more mouseclicks/keystrokes to do basically anything) and I hate Asana, so I use it very perfunctorily and only for large projects. Tasks lets you quickly enter a reminder to do something, it lets you move stuff between lists easily, and it lets you assign deadlines if you want to but doesn’t require you to do so or nag you if you’re over deadline. 

The thing about organizational apps is that I will only use them if they’re fast and easy – if I have to do ten things to get one thing done, I won’t bother. So Tasks, which is crude, simple, and efficient, works much better for me than a task manager where I have to fill out a goddamn form just to enter an item into my to-do list.

How to make succulent babies!

Step 1: Pick leaves
Gently twist the leaf near the base, it should snap off the plant cleanly. Good cuttings will be slightly rounded at the ends, and have no ‘open’ wound:

Bad cuttings will not grow, you need to make sure the whole leaf comes off in one go. Bad leaves are jagged, torn, or cut:

Step 2: Lay all cuttings inside on a piece of cloth.
I usually put a piece of old scrap material down on my desk and lie all the leaves out in rows. I try not to pile up the leaves, as this tends to promote rot. Do not water at all. AKA no misting the leaves, no watering the leaves, nothing. Everything the baby succulent needs to grow is stored in the mother leaf, watering may rot the leaf before the new plant is big enough to survive on its own! Make sure the leaves aren’t in direct sun, as they will wither before they form new plants. Filtered light from a window is strong enough!

Step 3: Waiting
After about 4 weeks you will start to see the first signs of life. The leaf may send out roots first, it may start to grow with no roots. Both are okay! 

Step 4: Planting (Start watering once a week at this stage)
After 6-8 weeks the baby succulents will be big enough to plant outside! I do this by placing the leaves on top of loose, sandy soil that has not been compacted. I do not bother burying the leaves, as it tends to do more harm than good (you may snap roots/damage new shoots in the process):

I place all the plants together, they don’t really seem to mind! These is how they look after about 10 weeks:

When the plants are big enough, the mother leaf will shrivel up and start to die off:

TADA! You’ve created baby succulents :)




Josephine/ Adaar fuels my life, enough to make a comic and draw sketches of them all the goddamn time.

Also I MIGHT have exagerated Adaar’s size but oh well, the bigger size difference the better am I right?

Stop expecting people will save you every time. It’s your job to save yourself. Eventually one day, they will stop reaching your hand and they will get tired of you. Everyone has an hourglass, everyone has its own limitation. They will say, ‘I’ll always be there for you’, but it doesn’t mean you can rely on them every time. Stop expecting people will be like a superhero when you need them the most. Stop depending on others. At the end of the day, you should learn how to save yourself from drowning. Because everyone is busy trying to save themselves.

What’s really interesting about Jasper’s appearance in this episode is her escalation of behaviour. When we first saw her, during her fight with the Crystal Gems, she was rough and intimidating, but not unreasonably violent.

She didn’t kill, she captured.

Now in this episode, Jasper is ready to shatter Steven because Lapis won’t fuse with her. And I think this, more than anything, shows that she really really needs help.

Jaspers are supposed to be ‘huge, loyal soldiers’ but being Malachite has screwed her over so bad that any loyalty she had for Homeworld got eradicated. She doesn’t care about Yellow Diamon or her mission, she doesn’t care about anything except getting back the one thing she thinks she needs to be strong.

Malachite has messed her up and manipulated her beliefs so badly that she doesn’t even realize how much it fucked her over.

Help her.

Hey, folks. Spike here. 

Rabid hyper-capitalist porno-pusher that I am, I don’t usually go to bat for other publishers, because I want all your sweet, sweet dollars to line my solid gold Lamborghini with. But I’m making one big exception, today.

The Fresh Romance Kickstarter really, REALLY needs your help.

Its got 6 days to go, and over ten thousand dollars to make. And it’s having a rough time helping itself, because the project organizer, Janelle Asselin, is chronically ill. She was feeling fine when the project launched, but she’s been in hospital for days now, and probably won’t get out until it’s way too late to save Fresh Romance through her own efforts.

Janelle launched Fresh Romance last year in an effort to revive the romance genre, a genre with a long and illustrious pedigree in North American comics, and a genre permanently deep-sixed by Dr. Fredric Wertham’s 1954 anti-comics smear campaign and the resulting Comics Code Authority. Before Fresh Romance, the last romance comics published in the US went out of print in the 1970s. The last time you saw a romance comic was probably on a museum wall, as traced by Roy Lichtenstein. And that’s fucking ridiculous.

Don’t tell me people don’t like love stories. And that’s what Janelle’s got. Fresh Romance comics are love stories. Love stories of all kinds, written by lots of women, drawn by lots of women, and getting those same women paychecks for their efforts, which is sadly a lot more than a lot of projects in this industry do. And as an editor who has employed some of Fresh Romance’s roster in my own efforts ( @kateordie​, @swinsea), I know it’s good stuff.

Please, please, pleez take a look, folks. And if you like Smut Peddler, if you like the creators involved, if you like idea of supporting marginalized genres and creators? Toss a few bucks their way and spread the word. Fresh Romance deserves a print run.
