Everyone else has selected the paint color they want for leaving their hand prints up over the sliding glass door. But what completely slipped your mind is the fact that Grillby can’t dunk his hand in paint. Not only are you pretty certain that wouldn’t exactly feel nice for him, you’re also positive that fire and paint isn’t a good mix.
Undyne, ignoring the step stool you’ve set up, jumps and slaps her hand on the wall, leaving a nice splattered print of green paint. Papyrus too doesn’t need the stool but he’s a little more delicate with the placement of his print. Likewise, Toriel, Frisk and Alphys do the same.
Gaster frowns at the paint, clearly seeing the same problem. “Now, what do we do about his print?”
Sans, dunking his hand in the blue paint far more than he needs to, narrows his brow in thought. “we could trace it with paint?”
“And have it possibly drip on his hand?”
Grillby starts to speak but-
“Just have him burn his print!” Undyne rolls her eyes like it’s the obvious answer.
“No!” You very quickly shake your head.
“We literally just bought this house, I’m not gonna burn a hole in the wood.”
“WE’RE ALREADY PUTTING EXTRA PAINT ON THE WALLS,” Papyrus points out. “A BURN MARK WOULDN’T RUIN IT RIGHT?”
“I’m not worried about that,” you sigh with exasperation. “I’m just worried that the paint will catch fire and spread and then before you know it-”
“Well, he um, he could leave maybe just a little scorch mark,” Alphys pipes up. “I’ve heard that he-he’s got perfect control.”
“Excuse me-” Grillby tries to speak up.
“But the paint is still fresh and I don’t know if it’s flammable or not!”
Gaster looks almost offended and it’s rather comical on his currently young face. “Are you doubting Grillby’s control?”
“No, of course I’m not! Sorry Grillby, I love you, you’re the best, but still, it’s not-”
Grillby’s flames let out a loud crackle, silencing everyone with shock over the volume of noise from him. You see a flicker of color on his face that means he’s smiling. He twirls a black marker between his fingers. “I’ll simply sign my name,” he says with good humor. “Will that work?”
You stare dumbfounded at the obvious answer. “Y-yeah, that’ll do it.”
That breaks the silence and everyone breaks into loud peals of laughter while Grillby steps up on the stool and signs his name next to the other handprints. You take your turn, as does Sans and then all that’s left is Gaster.
He puts his hand in the dark violet paint and steps up to place his hand on the wall but-
He’s too short. Even straining, this new body of his is just barely too short to reach.
You shove the fist of your paint free hand against your mouth, trying to stifle your laughter. The others are trying to do the same, without much luck. Undyne actually hits the ground, eye bulging and hands over her mouth. It’s not doing much to hide her shrieks of barely restrained cackles. You can hear Sans’ steadily growing giggles next to you as he shakes. To his credit, he hasn’t said anything yet but his incredibly smug and delighted grin speaks for him.
Grillby approaches Gaster. After a moment of silently shaking, the quick flashes of colors through his flames betraying his own restrained laughing, he manages to ask, “Need a lift?”
Gaster’s skull is flushed with vivid purple and he refuses to take his eyes off the spot he’s trying to reach. “Yes please,” he finally mumbles.
And that’s when everyone breaks. You can’t remember the last time you’ve laughed so hard.
Fun fact! I originally was going to end the final chapter of INTL with the actual placing of the handprints on the wall and I had similar thoughts about fire and paint mixing and I was going to leave it at simply tracing his hand but signing his name…! I didn’t even think of that.
Detail from the placement print I created for the 10 feet Fall collection.
I’m inspired by art deco and folk art a lot lately, which is a nice addition to my existing work I think. Also, it’s a lot of fun making things that are #botanical but also arranged with a sense of order and symmetry :-)
Hello! I wanna to try selling my art work online but I don't know where to start or how to do it! I'm trying to raise up money for a family trip and it'll be my first time selling my artwork. Any tips and advice?
I’m gonna assume you’re talking about selling commissions rather than selling prints online, but if that’s not the case:
storenvy and etsy are the most popular sites currently for independent creative merch webstores, they both take a small cut of your sales but are free to join. I’ve tried both and prefer storenvy. These sites expect you to manage your own sales and distribute your products by yourself.
society6 is a site where you upload your art for placement on prints and other products and the site manages the sales and distributes the products for you. They take a much larger cut of the sales.
patreon is a good option if you want to continuously create view-only content that isn’t specifically tailored to any individual benefactor
if we’re talking commissions, though :
- Don’t undervalue your art. If you’re worried about trying to find out what’s “acceptable” pricing for your art when just starting out, browse around other people’s commissions and see what sort of prices other artists are asking for the same sort of commission types you’ll be offering. Figuring out how long something takes you to draw and calculating it into a reasonable hourly wage is also a good way to go.
- Try to offer different types of commissions to start off with. Sometimes certain types of commissions don’t sell in the styles of certain artists. When you first start selling art online (or at cons, for that matter) it’s a good idea to offer a wide variety of options that are within your skill set to see which ones are most popular with your style.
- Don’t take on too much at once. You’ll get overwhelmed really fast.
Good luck with your thing!! I hope everything goes rly well for you
The prints and placement of a wolf’s paw is similar to that of a large dog, making it easy to confuse the two. However, the toe pads of a wolf are more oblong and not so densely placed, causing the the dispersion of the two middle toes to be slightly larger than that of a dog’s. Imprints of the nails are bigger, longer, and more pointed than that of a dog. The print of a forepaw from a grown up Gray wolf is about 11 centimeters long and 10 centimeters wide. The hindpaw is about 8 centimeters long and 7 centimeters wide.
While walking - something wolves relatively don’t often do - the lenght of the tread is 80 to 90 centimeters. While trotting - the pace wolves use most - the length is about 1 meter. When galopping or leaping, it’s 1.50 meters or more.
Wolves, like all canines, are digitigrade - meaning they walk on just their toe tips. It’s a very effective way of running. It helps them to stop and turn quickly and to prevent their paw pads from wearing down. The front of a wolf’s feet is very large. This allows greater weight distribution when a wolf runs on snow. It also provides more support to prevent them from sinking in the snow, helping them to hunt, run, and play without injury. Wolves also have small webs between their toes, enabling them to swim distances of up to 13 kilometers (8 miles).
Navy Crystal Dream Carnival onepiece set and all its glorious details!
You can really see how much loving care went into it, many pieces in the construction (the shoulder, the bodice panels, the waist ties) rely on accurate placement of the print pattern for visual effect.
A note about using underskirts: The OP, like many AP dresses, come with a built-in petticoat sewn into the lining, which in turn is sewn to the zipper. The built-in petticoat provides extra lift, which is awesome normally, but here it creates a gap between the top skirt and the underskirt, making it look funky.
If I were to wear this coord out I would take steps to seperate the lining from the zipper, so that the underskirt can be worn over the lining and the built-in petticoat, rather than under it.
Star clips are from Ciciworks, underskirt from Little Dipper. Everything else from AP. I forgot to add the Baroque gold shoes that should have gone with these.
Process is from bottom R to the top L junk casts(with the black wig). This is my first time ever printing and cleaning up something organic. Usually I just use my 3d printer to make better ball joints or mechanical pieces(swords, guns, ect). Usually all my organic sculpts are from paperclay.
I sculpted the raw face in Maya, took it into Zbrush and sculpted from reference, printed it here at home. It took me five printsto get it the right shape and size. Each print took about two hours and maybe 10cm of material? If I had printed these through shapeways they would have been about $45 each or more. My printer, which is down right now, doesn’t do quite as fine a print as shapeways, but it makes up for that in a lower cost per print. I’m pretty sure it’s paid for itself by now with as many experiments I’ve printed that I couldn’t otherwise do.
When I got a print I liked, I cleaned it up and then my pressure tank broke.
Two months later I’ve got it running again and I finished the molds yesterday evening. So now I’m at the junk cast stage. You can’t see it so much in the casting pictures here, but there’s a lot of polishing that needs to happen and I need to figure out what I’m doing with eye sockets and magnet placement.
BUT bryan’s posted LOTS of korrasami over the years anon. allow me to make a list…shhh it’s for science~ (mike’s posted less and mostly just the same korrasami posts as bryan except that one, so just bryan’s posts here…from most recent to oldest):
