I drew these before the final season started airing… Don’t know if I will find the time/energy to finish them before it wraps up and destroys me, so here are a bunch of rough Black Sails doodles! Man, I will miss this show…!

(different anon) I'd love to see a tutorial someday too. Specifically, how the heck do you get your pastries and ice creams and bread to look so soft and natural?! I've made a couple simple food pixels myself, but they all seem so stiff in comparison.

hum well personally i think making things look natural starts wi sketching out line work. (i did a comparison of a bread bun, starting with the same blue sketch to show the differences) i always do rough sketches & work over them bc i think it gives me a better idea of the form.

i know sometimes it seems right to have everything perfect & symmetrical but it all depends on what your drawing in the first place - because you mentioned like bread & ice-cream etc those things are rarely perfect anyway, so i guess avoid being too structured

then i think another big thing is the colour choice & the balance of the halftone dots for shading. I feel like too much half tone & its one big ordered gradient & yeah that looks kind of odd. & for the colour.. its tempting to just pick out the darkest tone & just gradually make it paler for the highlighty bits - but in reality when you really look at something there’s usually a lot of different kinds of colours (even if it is just white bread). So yeah id say experiment with that - i usually exaggerate and go for much warmer colours tbh.

the last thing that i think makes a huge difference is how you do the shine (if any). it helps to just think about the actual thing your drawing (goes wi out saying but curved and squishy bread probably has a softer curvy shine) and it’s probably not such sharp stark white

i feel like the picture just explains it all way better haha

a chlonette conversation probably

“So if I decided to fight you, what would be your go-to move?”

Chloe licked the tip of her index finger, flipped the page of her magazine, and casually skimmed the article. “Earrings off. Rings on. Go straight for the face.”

“And do what?”

“Probably scratching first. And then once you were incapacitated I would backhand you and leave you bleeding on the sidewalk.”

Marinette snorted, not looking up from the sketch she was working on. “That’s so typical of you.”

“What does that mean?”

“That you’re catty,” Marinette replied. “See, if I were fighting you, I’d yank on that stupid ponytail of yours and punch you straight in the chest. Two seconds.”

“So you’d sneak up behind me like a coward first,” Chloe nodded. “I see.”

“Who scratches during fights anymore? If you’re gonna fight me, you will respect me and punch me straight in the face. Otherwise, no deal.”

Chloe sighed and started filling out one of the quizzes in her magazine. “Fine, but if I’m punching you, then you have to come at me from the front first. And none of this boob punching nonsense. That’s just low.”

“Fine,” Marinette relented. “You punch me in the face. I’ll kick you in the ribs.”

“Perfect. We wear all black that day to commemorate the occasion.”

Marinette frowned at her sketch and started erasing the rough lines. “That works. I’m free on Tuesdays.”

Chloe shook her head. “Nah, can’t do Tuesdays. Voice lessons. This Thursday?”

“Sure, I can move some things around. I’ll text you and remind you.” 

Adrien squinted at Chloe while Alya darted her eyes between the two girls sitting casually next to each other at the study table. 

“You two are so effing deranged.”
