Hey could you do a small tutorial on how to draw long hair? And maybe if you have time like mermaid tails? (It's hard drawing OC's cause I can't draw)

Tutorials for Hair is actually really complex for me to explain and I’m actually not sure how to put it professionally. But I did find this in my old bookmarks for basic knowledge of how to draw long hair.

As for the mer-tails, I don’t think I draw the best tails but I do have a couple little things I do when I draw merfolk. 

You don’t have to proportion that way but I’ve been taught to draw the body of the tail larger to create a sort of appealing asymmetrical balanced figure. The way to balance out the top and bottom is through the hair as well, so maybe the bottom can be super extravagant and you have a large head of hair to balance it out (I suggest looking at Chris Sanders work, he can balance the figure really well such as large thighs and huge heads). It’s all cartoon styled so we can stretch shapes a lot! 

A lot of times mermaid tails are very “Ariel inspired” but it is interesting to research actual mammals and aquatic creatures. If you are trying to create a mystical magical tail, there’s nothing wrong grabbing a couple qualities from a sea dragon and adding it to a dolphin tail. Mermaid tails don’t have to be as realistic as a whale’s tail, but they probably swim like aquatic animals.

I hope this helps a little bit! Just keep practicing and referencing!

Glad you're back~

Awww you guys are so sweet. I feel like I just came back from the moon, it’s seriously been quite a while!

I don’t normally share my personal life but I feel I owe you guys an explanation for sudden disappearances and unanswered mail. I am pretty close to finishing college and I’m not the best multi-tasker. I hope to be able to be more consistent on tumblr this year, but I just wanted to thank everyone for sticking around for so long while I carved my gravestone for finals. *blows many gross kisses at all of you*

Uh… no? 

Because Marshall owning dresses really? Like he doesn’t already get more things than Gumball.

No, I’m not bitter.

your frozen genderbend is amazing! i love it so much! would you ever consider making a female hans and kristoff to go with it? that would be so great! you're a fantastic artist! have a lovely day! <3 <3

Gosh Thank you! I’ve actually really REALLY tried to attempt and draw them but I’m so bad at genderswapping males into females that I had to lay down a lot. I’ll just leave these here to humor anybody because I really did try.

And yeah I really wanted to draw out Hans and Anna’s duet, don’t look at me.

are there any gumee fanfics that you have read that you do like?

uM wow do you know where I live because just this morning while I derped in bed, I was looking up gumee fics because I just felt like it.

so far, I haven’t found one I’ve liked, but I laughed myself awake reading fics where people made Marshall sound cooler than Gumball.

Hot damn your art is fab!! Do you have a favorite set of brushes, or do you usually create your own?

Thanks!

I try to create my own sometimes using the default photoshop brushes with a few adjustments I learned from other artists for harder or textured edged linework which is pretty good.

Recently I’ve been using Kyle’s which are really nice inking brushes and Freden has some good ones as well. 

Then again if you’re looking for great free brushes, I really like Cale Atkinson’s brushes, the textures are fantastic. I also really like stumpy pencil and I’ve been using that for a long time which is free as well.

I know I have a ton more brushes I use but I really do have to hunt around. To be honest there is a lot of artists who are very generous with sharing their brushes and I owe them my soul.
