seen artists

okay so I’ve seen a lot of artists,including myself, make this common mistake of coloring the palm of  a hand(and the sole of a foot) as the same color as the person’s skin tone.

but in fact ,palms and soles are a different color compare to our skin

this is due to the lack of Melanin on them

hope this helps!

quick proportion tips

- eyeballs are an eyeball width apart
- ears align with the top of your brows to the bottom of your nose, and are the center-point of a profile view
- lip corners line up to the center of each eye
- hands are roughly the size of your face
- feet are the same size as your forearm
- elbows are aligned with your belly-button
- your hands reach down mid-length of your thighs
- both upper and lower legs (individually) are roughly the same size as your torso 
(this is all rough estimates for proportion! feel free to add more to help others)

I’ve seen posts about digital artists problems, and traditional artists problems, but I’d like to make a post about some of the frustrations that arise when your both.

  • I’m either good at drawing in my sketchbook or I’m good at drawing on my intuos, I just can’t be both.
  • I have to pick the canvas size???
  • Going to lineart something digitally that you sketched on paper but by the time you’re about done it looks like trash.
  • “AGH WRONG LAYER”
  • “hhnnnNNNNGGGG THIS DOESN’T HAVE” LAYERS”
  • “I’VE BEEN COLORING FOR SO LONG I FORGOT HOW TO SKETCH”
  • I wanna draw on the computer but I’m scrolling on tumblr instead
  • I wanna draw in my book but it’s on the other side of the room and I’m too lazy to go get it
  • “Where’s my wacom pen??” meets “where’s a fricking eraser????”
  • I tried zooming in on my sketchbook one time

Tradigital artist problems

look, I’m not saying that not liking Taylor Swift revokes your right to call yourself a feminist. 

but I am saying that most of the reasons people are shitting on her comes from deeply internalized misogyny, no matter how much they deny this.

If you hate TS’s new song because you think she’s

a. crying for attention

b. being immature

c. being too petty / needs to “get over” kimye / katy perry / whatever 

then please, ask yourself why no one ever, ever, ever shits on male musicians for writing songs that not only shit on other artists, but even call them out by their name. Like, Drake vs. Meek Mill or Eminem vs. well, you name it. People go crazy over that shit. These male artists are seen as bad ass and savage for doing something that YOU’RE ALL SHITTING ON TAYLOR SWIFT FOR DOING. 

Not to mention, no one ever shit on Kanye for demeaning Taylor in his song, “Famous,” SEVEN years after the vma award show “incident.” He was still going on about it, and no one told him to “move past it.” Why? You know why. Because men can respond to their own experiences in whatever way they want to. And according to you guys, women can only respond to their own experiences in one acceptable way. AKA not being “petty,” and just shutting the fuck up. Because like, who wants to hear women talk anyways? lets leave that for the men, right? 

Please check your internalized misogyny at the door and allow Taylor Swift to respond to her own experiences in whatever way she wants, because you all allow men that exact same luxury without endlessly shitting on them.
