Hi zephyo, sorry for bothering you but I was wondering how do you tackle learning? I've stopped drawing because I was overwhelmed while learning the fundamentals of art, but I want to start drawing again :) Btw I've been following your art for about two years now, they're really amazing so keep up the good work <3
omg nice anons are never a bother!
I try to make learning fun. Boring learning is ineffective! You want to be intrinsically motivated to learn - aka, you want to learn about color because you enjoy learning about color, not because you want to make a bombass portrait and your colors seem to suck <- you’re not learning about color for the sake of color.
So this is what I do nowadays: whatever I’m in the mood for - drawing beautiful nekkid ppl or seeing the nice dichotomy of cool greys against red - I do. I shut off all distractions - phone, games, that nice cheesecake ooh so tempting - and with the aid of good resources and motivating music, I draw for hours. And I enjoy it.
Here are some good resources:
All of Andrew Loomis’s books (anatomy) (yes there are PDFs online.. if you can buy you probably should tho cuz they’re so good)
Perspective! for Comic Book Artists by David Chelsea (perspective)
I’ve been hunting for any sign of an alpha on the ChimeraSanctuary server since they updated! Not a sign anywhere to be seen. Finally day 3 of trying I found something glowing in the river? I was really confused cause I had been looking for a rex, but instead I found this puffed up raptor bobbing about!
I flew around her with my Ptera, Copper, who is around lvl 90ish all hopped up on stamina/speed/health. So when Rexes nip him he barely takes a nick.
Well…. When this little lady nipped him, A WHOLE CHUNK WOULD GO MISSING! Poor Copper! At first I had every intention of trying to hunt her/kill her to see how hard it would be. (hint: it is when alone)
But after watching her for a bit and seeing her beautiful colors I just couldn’t do it. So I force-tamed her and took her home. It was so much fun to run around the mountain with her because she is SO FAST AND SO STRONG! She downs rexes and brontos easily by herself in seconds. Just omg I love her so much.
I have her standing next to my favorite raptor, Darcy, here in these shots to show how much bigger Orchid is! Just daaamn!!!
At first, Seb and Sherlock are kind of…not into each other. Like at all.
Seb leaves when he knows that Sherlock is going to be coming over and Sherlock makes himself scarce because he’s not really a fan of Seb either
It’s not even that it’s jealousy either. It’s more that their personalities just clash. In Sherlock’s eyes, Seb is rough and hands on and exudes far too much stereotypical manliness - there’s not much elegance to him. In Seb’s eyes, Sherlock reminds him too much of his classmates from school; prissy and arrogant, too smart for his own good and in dire need of a personality injection.
Jim just lets them be. He finds it amusing when they complain about each other because they’re more alike than they realize.
One day Sherlock finds Sebastian reading a book about chemistry he’d given Jim. He sneers something about Sebastian not understanding anything in it. Sebastian raises an eyebrow and says something like, “If you actually read this you might figure out how those three people in Clapham died last week.” And their friendship slowly, tentatively takes off from there.
Jim secretly thinks it’s cute, even though he’s not happy that Sebastian gave away the game
Aaaa omg don’t judge me XD I just really like this dork, ok??? Playing him is the best XDD and I love his quotes in polish they are so bad yet so good I’m having great fun ;v; nope I still don’t have Overwatch…me and my friends had a little gaming party yesterday and we switched after one play each and I drew him between matches and fast colored in PS with mouse XD … NINA HAS HIS LEGENDARY RAREST GOLDEN PEPE SKIN I LOVE IT XDDDDDD I’M GONNA HAVE IT SOON!!!!! . So if anyone didn’t know yet it’s Lucio from Overwatch XD
