really this is just an artistic reference for me

DUDE YOUR ART IS AMAZING! How much time does it take for you to actually get your works done? and also how many years did it take you to be so good at drawing I'm an aspiring artist but I'm 17 and just started so I feel like a late bloomer LOL but one last question is it ok for me to use your art as reference for mine? also I'm sorry for all these questions I'm just v curious <33

HI! :0, well generally speaking it depends on what I’m drawing. I have the attention span of a pebble so minus the tabbing out maybe 2-4 hours? I’m not sure lol

Uh I’ve been drawing since forever really, digitally since freshman year of high school (or around that time at least) I don’t think it’s ever too late to start drawing though. I took a college art class recently and a lot of the students happened to be in their 30s-40s because they circle back around to wanting to do art. I mean, one of those students brought in his two children and then spun me a tale about how he worked as a mechanic half his life but his dream job was to be an artist. I think I was one of the youngest if not in the class lol

ALSO, it all depends on what you’re referencing from my art. If you’re going to be straight tracing my every line probably not, but I don’t mind if you take notes from it so-to-speak. If you end up using my art as a reference all I ask is please credit me. Thanks c: <3

FLIP THE DANG CANVAS WHEN U DRAW/SKETCH, THIS WELL REALLY HELP WITH ARTIST LEAN AND MAKE UR STUFF LOOK LESS WEIRD

A compilation of stuff I know about drawing Asian faces and Asian culture! I feel like many “How-To-Draw” tutorials often default to European faces and are not really helpful when drawing people of other races. So I thought I’d put this together in case anyone is interested! Feel free to share this guide and shoot me questions if you have any! I’m by no means an expert, I just know a few things from drawing experience and from my own cultural background.

I have no excuse or much context for this but basically McCree and Fareeha are both Native American and they like to troll Morrison. Based on this scene from “Dance me Outside”.

Prince Roman has arrived!!! Bit of struggle to get this one done since the other two have raised the bar pretty high and my own expectations kind of got to me. :P Still, by the end of it I really love this picture and how it came up!!! :D

I wanted this one to match with the Virgil one (besides legs) and I add in a unicorn horn for FANTASY!!! There is also a small Disney reference. ;)

Worse Than Nicotine

Prompt: “You’re the health-conscious med student and I’m the chain-smoking art student who’s also your barista and you leave me notes on smoking and lung health on your napkins and also a 20-page essay on lung cancer tucked under your saucer” AU. Where Sirius is the chain-smoking art student.

Word Count: About 5,500.

Warning(s): Smoking, sexual tension, kissing, motorcycle ride without all the gear. Don’t accept a ride from someone on a motorcycle unless they supply the proper gear and you’re wearing pants and a heavy jacket, preferably. Do some research before riding!

Note: Sort of a modern, college AU. This isn’t smut, but, I have to warn you, it does end up being smoking hot. Hah. Get it? Anyway, thank you @princesse-de-ravenclaw for reading this over!


To the barista with the pretty grey eyes,

Smoking can cause the lens of the eyes to fog up and the whites of the eyes to turn yellow. Don’t ruin their beauty. If not for yourself, then for those who have the pleasure of seeing them. ;)

Love, Y/N.

Sirius rolled his eyes, a slight chuckle escaping his lips as he pocketed yet another note from you. If you were to open a spare drawer in his flat, you would find a collection of tossed napkins with rushed scribbles littering the surface. Maybe one day Sirius would take your insistent advice, but right now, all he wanted was a drag.

“Another love letter from your favorite med student?”

I finally bought Kingdom Hearts 2.8 and it reminded me of how sad that hole series is really. I just want everyone to be happy TvT I’ve never been able to play Dream Drop Distance before and it’s nice (and sad) to have all those flashbacks and stuff!

Anyway, this is a stress-relief doodle (?). I bet every Kingdom Hearts fan can tell which image I used as reference~ xD

i love your art so much!!!! the lighting, the hair and expressions, but most of all the poses!! i hope you dont mind me asking, but how do you go about planning the pose for a drawing (especially if its like an action or battle pose) like what kind of references do you use? its really hard to come up with something and i dont know where to look for inspiration. thanks!!

THANK YOU MY DUDE!!!!!! YOUVE LISTED ALL THE THINGS IVE STRUGGLE WITH WHILE DRAWING L OL

when im stuck on pose ideas, i usually just google some example poses L O L!!! i also look over some of my fav artists’ work. although i believe once you can grasp the way limbs etc. work, youll be able to create any pose you want. although i believe the crucial thing is to make sure whatever pose youre choosing is correct.

mia jumping in the air with a one vanishing point perspective

for more dynamic poses, try experimenting with camera angles.

mia with attempted 3 vanishing point perspective L MAO

energy lies in small details and gestures

although there isnt really anything wrong with this pose, you can add more energy by changing and adding a few things.

i hunched lyns back and shoulders more for tension and moved the sword to a more active, dynamic pose. the direction and flow of her hair further adds to the energy. dont be afraid to get our of your comfort zone to try more dynamic poses

hopefully that helps…. GOOD LUCK MY DUDE!!!

Okay while I’m at it (i mean talking abt my art policy w someone laughs)
I would like to share this thing happened to me from months ago.
Something I rlly have to tell to all my followers or people who visit my page.

To begin with, I’m a really flexible kind of artist regarding my own art’s policies.

Use as icon? Use it. Use as header? Use it. Repost? Redraw? Trace? Reference? Yep, totally don’t mind, go ahead. I see those stuff as ways to appreciate my art, instead i would like laughs at it and “wow why would you like my ugly art cries, thanks tho.”
There is only one thing I ask from you all, “a credit”, yep, a link back to my tumblr. Or my twitter, or my name, just anything.

Because all I want is “respect and honesty” alright, you don’t need to ask my permission, but if you respect me & my art you surely would at least write down my name on the caption right?

Lol i became too sappy im sorry.
And well so, it’s not rare, but not often either for me to saw my art getting reposted. But this one particular haikyuu page in fb reposted my art without a credit to me. I wouldnt tell which art and which page bcs i don’t want problems. Please don’t look it up either i beg you.

Ok so, ofc my friend is like “haru isn’t this your art?” So I’m like “oh yes it is”
So i went to the page, and comment, kindly and politely, to put my link to tumblr on the caption. Thought, honestly, i wouldnt mind if they don’t do it either bcs if you see the comment section, the link is there, right there.
But this page, instead of choosing to just ignore the comment, which is already quite rude, choose to delete my comment.
My friends are like “whoa wtf, do u need a hand” but I’m too tired of shits already so I’m like “nah it’s cool.”

Ok, so, I’m no big artist, and I’m totally cool with this kind of thing. But it’s rlly unrespectful to the artist to do this kind of thing man. If you can’t support the artist by buying their stuff, commissing them, well excuse u, at least pls support them by respecting them.

To the admin of that page, i forgive you but please don’t do it anymore cries.

I’m sorry for rambling too much, i just feel like i need to make this post so some ppl would know all i want is my name written on the caption
Here have a KageHina :’) i haven’t been drawing so much lately cries //rolls away

komoii  asked:

Do you think (if it isn't too much trouble) you could give me a couple of art tips? I really love the way you draw and it would be really nice if I could get pointers from an artist I like. Don't feel you have to though! :)

hmm..

-don’t shade with black!! blease!!

-if you’re just doodling i recommend doodling rly rly fast!! especially when it comes to full bodies or dynamic poses!

-try practicing thinner lines in lineart! idk why but it helped me??

-remember to take breaks to stretch!! your back will thank u!

-use reference pictures! NOT the drawings of someone else bc everybody makes mistakes in their art and its best if you use an actual picture as a ref!

-dont trace! that way you won’t learn anything :o (unless you’re lazy like me, i usually just trace like backgrounds from pictures sometimes or some furniture but usually its best to try and draw it by yourself!)

-dont go too crazy on luminosity and overlays and such if you use sai! sometimes less is more (unless you really  know what you’re doing)

-although luminosities and overlays may help setting the tone of the drawing!! i recommend finding some inspo on tumblr and it’s fanarts! there are also plenty tutorials on how to color!

-shade with a darker colder color from the base color and light up the drawing with a warmer lighter color!

-it’s just my opinion but i think that sometimes a more cleaned up sketch is much better than really stiff lineart! although i’m not saying you should stop practicing it tho >:O

-it’s ok to take breaks from drawing but make sure they’re not too long! i’m not saying you should full on paint 3000x3000 paintings but at least doodle a little!

-make sure your colors dont blend in together! i had this issue with coloring where sometimes the skin had the same as the background or the hair for example lmao

-when you are doing lineart, have your sketch layer set really low so you can see what you’re actually doing

-make sure your drawing fills out the whole canvas! don’t be afraid to crop your drawings unless you have backgrounds!

-don’t give up! it’s not a race! and have fun!

-remember that progress doesn’t happen overnight and be patient >:0

this is what i’ve learned over the years at least :O

One of my personal favorite ‘tip’ posts on the subject >>> http://dredsina.tumblr.com/post/25341400011

I know I’ve seen more but I can’t seem to find them right now ;-; I would encourage you to search though, they’re around!

My wordy post on drawing Men vs women >>> http://kirstendoodles.tumblr.com/post/115009918348/how-did-you-learn-to-draw-menboys-any-tips

Again this is NOT A TUTORIAL. I would have liked to go more in depth and actually detail out logistics of how to draw body and form and mass but the reality is, such a thing takes a lot of time and I don’t have any- at least not right now. If getting me to do tutorials/quick courses is an interest of you guys though, let me know! I could consider ways of working out time to do so in the future :)

These are just really quick general tips to keep in mind when drawing, and drawing Xadril, specifically. I cannot overstate the importance of reference when learning how to draw people and body types, however- reference really is your best friend when learning to draw anything!  

I have a cellphone for one reason only

So… okay. Just because you all need to see it, I’ll leave you here this fanart because it caused me to start shipping this and so far I’m liking it.

Thank you @burythekidd for giving me this beautiful ship, I love it, I don’t care about anything else.

As a reference, this is set on a day-to-day AU. Akande is a martial artist, so he needs to train everyday as a job. I want to apologize if it’s not the best, it’s 1:40 in the morning and I just googled the info I needed.

Title: I have a cellphone for one reason only
Fandom: Overwatch
Pairing: Lúcio Correia dos Santos/Doomfist: The Successor | Akande Ogundimu
Rating: G.
Word Count: 1124
Brief tags: Fluff, Texting, Selfies, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting

Summary: Akande wouldn’t really need a cellphone if it wasn’t because Lúcio always sends him cute messages.

You can read it under the cut or in AO3!

monsterousarte  asked:

i've been trying to draw more fan fusions, but my number one difficulty is finding the right gem. how do you choose the gem behind your fusions? scientific research, to see what components the gems share with the new fusion gem, color, etc?

Sort a combination of that yes, I admit it can be really hard to find gems. Usually I just search “gems by colour”, and I find gems are a lot prettier and varied on pinterest rather than just google images. I save any gems I think look really cool and then come back to them if I want to figure out a character for them.

HOWEVER I have a pet peeve with fusions that are literally just both the colours of the fusers and no new colours! For example, I’ve seen so many Amethyst and Peridot fusions that are just blotches of green and purple. Personally it just feels lazy to me and doesn’t bring anything new. Don’t be afraid to make your fusions not make sense.

My gems and colours are picked especially to suit the character of the fusion. For example I picked Unakite because I wanted Peridot’s greens to become really dirty and more brown-ish with Amethyst’s roughhouse influence. This reference might be a good starting point! This was where I picked Covellite from. Sorry if the words are too small, and I can’t remember the source (if anyone knows let me know!)

— (Hey, since you guys like this drawing so much, why don’t you drop me some ask or request? I’m totally open for that.)

OK SO, I’ve gotten sooooososoSO inspired by the awesome artist in the fandom that have made so many AU’s and such that I just HAD to draw up a lil something to toss into the ink machine of madness.

The AU’s meant to be in this story atm are:
Toon!Henry (Henry is a Toon)
PhotoCopy (That means there’s doubles)
Sketchy (That means the studio isn’t ‘realistic’ and instead is toonified)
Heartless (That means one or more of the toon’s are without a soul, and are pretty much just mindless monsters, they’re not searchers because they’re legit just like melted bendy)


(I may add more though, there’s a plot to this I’ve created as well but for now I’m keeping it under wraps because I love surprises <333)

Ok, onward to the next thing of business.

 Long story short

I want to make a comic in regards to SEVERAL au’s that many other fans (including myself) have come up with.

However I suck majorly when it comes to making comic’s. I can’t really draw comic panels well or pace them out to where they make sense, I can make scripts just fine, I guess I’m looking for a panel artist?? Or maybe just any artist in general that know’s how to work with comic’s. Either way, perspective is a pain and I need assistance with it to help get this thing going. You’re welcome to pop a message to me if you’re interested, but otherwise I hope you enjoy the art as well as the references I’m gonna drop down below because I couldn’t have thought up any of this stuff without you guys.

——

@squigglydigglydoo​ has been a HUGE inspiration to this. Alongside their Toon!Henry AU, I went to one of their streams and watched how AWESOMELY they drew out everyone’s favorite demon on Clip Studio Paint. I’d previously bought it but I had no clue how to use it, which is why I started learning and drew this ENTIRE image using it. Needless to say, this gal is a godsend and you should totally support her and her work because GOSH DANG SHE’S SO COOL.

@yunisverse​​ They’re the first person who’s art I bumped into in regards to the Rubberhose AU and their comic (Remade in his image) which was what sold me to the fandom. I hope you don’t mind that I used your based references for the toon’s because I really liked how you drew them so simply but with personality! Definitely worth checking them out and supporting them!

@the-vampire-inside-me​​ Honestly if there was any way to express how fucking awesome this person’s art style is you’d bet your ass I’d straight up say it to em in person. This dude is the one that inspired me to even grow interest within attempting the comic altogether. Their style, their finesse, it’s just too GOOD. I swear they made a bargain with the ink demon himself because ffs henry looks like such a beefcake daddy you’d never wanna stop huggin’.

@askthedevilswing​​ THOSE LINES, THE LINES. AHHHHHHH THEY’RE SO SMOOTHE AND SOFT. Another inspiring artist I’ve fallen pen over pad for with how fantastic their style is and how perfect they grab the studio’s characters. (and also that goddam buff bendy, holy hooligans I’ll never lookat my boi the same way again after that. Brings me to tears EVERY TIME.)

There’s plenty more pal’s out there that I wish I could brag about being amazing, but it’s gettin’ late and this post is pretty long enough as is so I hope everyone in the fandom know’s just how much I adore all their work and keeps at it!!! <333


Portrait drawing tips for amateurs from a self-taught artist

Keep in mind I draw with graphite and charcoal, not color pencils

  1. All you need to start drawing is a sheet of paper and a pencil, preferably HB or B graduation. If you are really comitted buy a white paper sketch notebook and at least 3 pencils, 2H, B, and 3B.
  2. I work with reference pics 99% of the time and that makes everything easier for me. Just make sure you aren’t violating any copyright policies or anything.
  3. Along with #2, using a reference pic doesn’t necessarily mean the drawing has to be exactly like the picture, adding your personal touch makes everything better!
  4. I don’t do any of that, measuring the head and proportions thing. It just doesn’t work for me, so I start by drawing the left eye, then the right, nose, mouth, etc.
  5. EYES ARE SUPER IMPORTANT! If you want your drawing to really come alive make sure you get the gaze right.
  6. Like I said in #4, measuring doesn’t work for me, so what I do is just look at the proportions in the pic itself and apply them to the drawing. For example, if the forehead looks about five times the size of the eye, I just mark the size of five eyes and draw the forhead.
  7. If you plan on doing a realistic portrait instead of sketching, blending is key. If you don’t have the tools you can use your fingers, kleenex and q-tips. Grab the softest pencil you have, make a few soft lines where you want to blend and just go to town.
  8. Forget what you think you see, and pay attention to what’s actually there. For me this one is probably the hardest but most helpful step: instead of thinking of the model’s features (like okay now I’m going to draw the eyes, the nose, etc) think of what you are drawing as what it is: lines. Study the angles, lenght and wide of the lines, not the actual features.
  9. PRACTICE IS EVERYTHING. The only way you are going to improve is by practicing, so try to draw something every day, even if it is some doodles on the corner of the page.

Common mistakes:

  1. Eyelashes don’t point all to one direction. The ones on the corner of the eyes point inwards (towards the nose), then they start to point upwards and finally they point outwards.
  2. Always remember shading and lighting. This adds volume to your portrait.
  3. You usually can’t see every single strand of hair so don’t draw hundreds of lines but rather patches of different tones if that makes sense.

Here’s some proof that I actually know what I’m talking about
