lyricstuck shenanigans

Lyricstuck thing I learned while doing this project

Normally I’ve planned my lyricstuck by drawing the panels in my sketchbook and crossing out panels that doesn’t work.

I found that a more efficient method is to use sticky notes! How come this hasn’t occurred to me sooner? D:

So far it’s been good to me and I think I’ll be using this method from now on OuO. It’s more organized, more efficient, and more effective in putting down ideas. It’s easy to switch around the panels for repetitive choruses instead of having arrows going all over your page and making it confusing (and also having to erase a lot)

 I try to work on something flow of the panels until I am happy with it, so all the stuff on the top are discarded compositions of only 2-3 panels that I thought needed fixing.

Try it out! It’s p dang sweet! Also I hope this helps some c:

shtuts replied to your post “hey have you double checked your saving location? because sometimes you have to either save the image on your desktop or in a newly created folder when you’re on your mac”

Have you considered the possibility of excess sadness? that might be the cause (it’s a thing. I know it because science). all you need to do is make the lyricstuck all happy and that should fix it :D

Ha good one– you mean like this?

Excuse Me, But It Would Be Met With Much Gratitude If You Were To Reveal Your Serkets To Uploading Lyricstucks, Especially If There Is Particular Detail Given For The Benefit Of Tumblr Newbs Such As Myself. Thank You For Your Time.

Yes Kanaya, that would be fine.

- Make a text post and an audio post in your Drafts

- Upload your lyricstuck panels on the text post

- Upload your music of choice on the audio post

- When you’re done, select all and copy your panels from the text post and paste it onto the audio post

Publish your audio draft and Bam, you’re done. c: Happy lyricstucking.

moonsrain  asked:

How do you divide up the lyricstuck when you're saving the in-progress digital files? I mean, do you save each panel as a separate file or save short sequences together?

Each panel is a separate, numbered file.

png files are saved in a subfolder.

because otherwise it’d be a mess, hahaha 

You can have several panels in a few files though

and I’ve done that for the first two. But when I started getting ambitious with the colors did I start having them separately. :P I will be doing the separate files for different panels from now on.

anonymous asked:

Your lyricstuck was beautiful, thank you so much for the feels. Question from the curious: What did you improve on in the process of making Run to You? Any insights that you'd like to share?

I really appreciate it, thank you. I did learn a lot but there’s still so much out there to learn OwO. I’m just happy that I’m moving forward a little art-wise so I hope you don’t mind me gushing about it.

yall can have this one panel of the lyricstuck im working on ^u^

officially halfway+ into the lyricstuck, with three more days til my self-imposed due date. but considering i worked all day for the last 4 days to get this far, and with school starting tomorrow, it’s likely i won’t make it. 


im certainly holding it against me when that happens, but i hope you dont feel the same way UoU

i think it’s funny how most of the lyricstuck previews that I’ve put up are being modified or dashed out entirely. So don’t be surprised if the stuff I posted before doesn’t show up in the Final.

I’ve just been learning a lot of storytelling and cinematic techniques that looking back at my hapdashed boards last year…yeah it needs to be fixed e~e. If I worked awfully hard drawing this thing it better have bloody decent composition too

but hey, here’s one WIP panel that’s definitely staying, if that holds any comfort

(Miiinndfang aw yiss)

Cronus: Let it go (revamped lyrics) [Frozenstuck?]

The sea glowvs bright under the moon tonight.
Not a single fin to be seen.
An ocean of isolation,
And it looks like im the king.

Their vwoices howvling, i can hear them in my mind.
Couldnt keep it in, nevwer thought id cry.

Dont let them in, dont let them see,
8e the cool troll, you alvways strivwe to be.
Conceal, dont feel, dont let them knowv,
Vwell nowv they knowv.

Let it go, let it go.
Cant hold it back anymore.
Let it go, let it go.
Open up on all closed doors.

I dont care,
Vwhat theyre going to say.
Let their scorn burn strong.
Ivwe alvways been this lonely anyvway.

Its funny howv some distance,
Makes evweryone seem small.
And the vwords they use to scar me,
They cant hurt me at all.

Its time to shine my colors true,
The bard of hope, ill see vwhat i can do.
No right, no vwrong, no rules for me.
Im free.

Let it go, let it go.
I am one vwith the hope and light.
Let it go, let it go.
Ill let it all shine bright.

Here i am,
And im here to stay.
Let their scorn burn strong…

I vwill nevwer let their jeering keep me dowvn.
They push and pull but I vwill nevwer fall onto the ground.
And once they think that i havwe broken dowvn like glass.
I alvways stand back up,
And put the pieces back.

Let it go, let it go.
I vwill rise and ill stand strong.
Let it go, let it go,
The vweakling troll is gone.

Here i stand,
And here i stay.
Let their scorn burn on.
Ivwe alvways been this lonely anyvway.

Something I Think About Sometimes

“AU Lyricstuck Week”

like, we all have those songs where we’re like “OH MAN THAT WOULD FIT THIS CHARACTER if it were a Western and they were in love with this other person they never met in canon”

and it would be cool to have a week to marathon some quick lyricstuck shenanigans devoted to telling the story of an alternate universe.  imo.

I have a lot of ideas like this and I have a feeling it wouldn’t work out but I still think about it sometimes.

I started this lyricstuck

and so have made an effort to catalogue this experience. People who follow my personal blog won’t find anything new UuU

so basically, just a bunch of useless textposts that may or may not give insight to my method of lyricstucking. It’s not easy and there will always be changes made along the way UoU

Nice to meet you too. Hey, do you mind if If I ask you a question? I am an artist too and I can't Leo but admire the length of your beautiful Lyric Comics. I always have trouble maintaining motivation while I'm in the middle of a really long piece, like a comic. How in the world do you keep yourself so focused?


there are spans of days where i just dont feel like working on my projects—lose motivation and dont wanna look at my own work sorta thing. And there are plenty of lyricstucks that I abandoned because of that reason :P 

but to get over those challenging internal conflicts, I ask my friends to keep an eye on my progress and push me, and always try to work at it til the point of no return—meaning you’ve worked so long at it that you might as well get it done, haha.

Focus is important, but it only really comes in short, small bursts. What’s important is the things that you do while you’re not in that focus zone. It’s all about the willpower and patience to push yourself through a long project. Work on it one small step at a time. Certainly we get a blaze of excitement when we first start off, but when you hit a block and run out of energy, it’s time to be wise and start planning more carefully.

I’m not the perfect model for it no, but the important thing is to try. Try your best. Have patience for yourself and your work.

Good luck! ^u^
