Hi guys, so this is the way I make roses using the bullion knot. Hopefully if you are trying this you have an understanding of the bullion knot because it will help.

Step 1: So first of, I think it’s best to make three french knots in the centre of the rose. You don’t need to but I think it help give you a structure to work around.

Step 2: Next you want to make a bullion knot that goes across the centre. 

Step 3: This bit is important! the wrappings around the needle needs to be LONGER than the distance between the holes, this will help give the bullion knot movement and make it curve.

Step 4: When pulling the knot tight, you will need to make sure it curves around the centre like the picture above.

Step 5: The next stitch should be going directly over what you’ve done so far. Pretty much like this picture.

Step 6: Repeat this a third time and you have what I cal the ‘foundations’ of the rose. This will be what you work around to build up the layers.

Step 7: Repeat the knots going around the outside of the foundations. You should keep building these up until you’re happy with how its looking. It may take a bit of practice to understand how it works, but as always, practice makes perfect!

And that’s pretty much to. Hope this was helpful for some of you, I try my best to make these understandable, but if you are having any problems please let me know.

anonymous asked:

I love your line sketches of the BBcsherlock characters and would love to learn how to draw this way. This style where you can see individual lines instead of other shading absolutely facinates me. Do you have any tips on how to start?

Hey thanks! I don’t think there’s anything particularly special about this sort of style, it’s basically just the same as crosshatching with a traditional pencil, except here with digital art I just used the pen tool in SAI so the lines don’t blend and they stand out more.

Essentially what you’re trying to do is express a plane with a series of lines, like this:

To express tone and shading, you can vary the density:



Or overlap lines (crosshatch):

This doesn’t mean that crosshatching always makes things darker, sometimes you can crosshatch lightly, it’ll just make the shading look finer:

So with a combination of line density, thickness, darkness, and overlap, you can create all sorts of different tones and textures depending on what you need for different parts of the picture:

To express turning faces, you can vary the direction or angle of your lines:

The rest is just a matter of deciding how you use those techniques to express the picture you want to draw, and that’s a matter of your own judgement and experience; it would be impossible to list every rule because there aren’t any rules. The stuff about thickness and crosshatching and density etc. I basically made up just now by looking back on my drawings and analysing the lines; I never actually consciously thought about those things when I drew them, so don’t treat them like commandments or something, play around with different lines and combinations to get a feel for yourself what works in what situations.

To illustrate that I’ll draw a picture of Sherlock and try to break down what I’m doing at each step:

Sorry my notes are a bit messy (I hope you can read my writing) but if anything I guess it reflects how messy my thought process is, I’m always adding things and changing things as I go along.

Always remember, you’re trying to use lines to represent planes, so even though you’re drawing in lines, you need to be looking at the reference and thinking in terms of planes, not lines. Also, make sure you keep your lines parallel so they don’t run into each other because that’ll make it look messy.

I think the best way to learn is always to try things yourself, so don’t just look at this tutorial, go play around with the lines yourself, whether you use my steps as a starting point or draw from a photo of your own, hopefully you’ll get a feel for how to use lines then. Also remember that you can go as detailed or as loose with your lines as you want, so long as you have the important shapes and facial features expressed.

Hope this was helpful! :)


@xsunset-bright asked for a tutorial on how i draw my Sonic Chara’s a LOOOONNGG time ago and so i decided to do that now! Since i finally had some time to do it npn

I hope these help some of you! And if there is anything that you’d like me to make a tutorial on that isn’t on here, please tell me! ;v;

Here is a tutorial on how I have been doing my poetry analysis notes if anyone is interested.

Love Nerd



Folded from 15cm kami.

Kind of my own variation on the traditional swan.

It seems an obvious base with a very simple fold sequence so maybe there is another very similar design out there. Or possibly flocks of them. But I liked this and I couldn’t see anything quite like it, so I’m posting it here. Now I’m waiting to hear “I designed that years ago.”

Diagram note.

This is drawn with the ipad app iDraw, the first diagram I’ve completed in that app. I will have to do more before I decide if I’m going to switch from my usual Inkpad. It is a very close call workflow wise. But interesting how the app leads me to make a more precise, but also more rigid diagram, where my Inkpad efforts were getting more supple.

Tutorial ~ Como deixar a sua fanfic interativa

Olá girls and boys, então eu consegui aprender a fazer a fanfic interativa muito, mas muito rápido, eu achei fácil e resolvi tentar explicar a vocês como funciona e como eu aprendi. 

Se esse tutorial ajudar você por favor deem Like/Reblog

É importante!! melxx

  • Primeiro você vai entrar no seu tumblr, logo no lado direito vai ter essa imagem.

  1. Clica na seta e vai aparecer isso.

     2. clica em criar um novo blog, então você preenche as coisas que pedem e depois clica em “criar blog”

  • No tumblr secundário você pode colocar ‘membros’ que são iguais aos adm ou mods, mas eles não podem alteram o theme ou fanfic interativa do seu blog, só poderá postar.

- Depois de criar o tumblr secundário, clica em:

  1. Personalizar
  2. Editar Html

- Apaga tudo que estiver nele.

- Para começar você deve colocar o alerta… 


External image

Para colocar isso é bem simples, na primeira linha do Html, você coloca esse codigo:

<script language=“JavaScript”> alert(“AQUI VOCÊ COLOCA O SEU ALERTA!”); </script>

- Para colocar as perguntas você tem pular uma linha depois do alerta e colocar este codigo:



<SCRIPT>var Harry = prompt(“ Qual o seu boy preferido?”,“”)</SCRIPT>

  • Para toda pergunta tem que ter a sua resposta, digamos que essa é a parte mais trabalhosa da fanfic interativa.
  • Depois que você escrever o capitulo da sua fic, você irá mudar o nome das pessoas por esse codigo com as suas devidas respostas.

- Codigo:



- Harry vai por uma roupa.

A pergunta é essa:

<SCRIPT>var Harry = prompt(“ Qual o seu boy preferido?”,“”)</SCRIPT>

Agora você coloca assim no meio da fic:

- <SCRIPT*>document.write(Harry)<*/SCRIPT> vai por uma roupa. 

- Agora vamos começar a formatação da fanfic interativa.

Sempre no começo de cada parágrafo você deverá colocar o “<br>” e se você não colocar a fic ficará toda embaralhada.

Então ficará assim:

<br> era uma vez… <br><br>

O <br> no final da linha é para pular linha, quanto mais <br> mais linhas você pula.

- Aqui está os codigos para deixar as frases em:

 italiano negrito sublinhado 

<i> aqui o seu texto </i> = italiano 

<n> aqui o seu texto </n> = negrito

<s> aqui o seu texto </s> - sublinhado

  • Eu aprendi muito fácil, eu (mel) faço desse jeito a minha fic. Bom antes de eu postar o capitulo, eu vou no word e altero as as coisas, tipo o nome do personagem, o nome dos amigo, fica mais fácil, você mesmo fazer fica bem melhor ;)
  • Espero ter ajudado qualquer duvida vem na ask.
  • Se esse tutorial te ajudou por favor de like/rebloga é muito importante.

Hello my friendzzz!!! ahm sorry long post.. <_<’’
I took advantage of these 2 questions I received to do this little post to show how I work with traditional drawings!! 
I had to use a little drawing because (COFFCOFF) I was at work, but if you want I can do this thing with a bigger drawing :) (or not, it’s probably not so interesting to make another one XD)

So, here you go! I hope someone will find it useful :)
Ah, Mirana’s vallaslins are not brown, but i didn’t have my white pen with me. So.. brown, XD

How I color hair with copics

I have been recieving alot of questions from people about how I color hair with copic markers, so I’ve decided to make a little tutorial about it!

The materials that I will be using are copics (duh xD) and BRISTOL PAPER. The brand I use is “Perfect colouring paper”, but this technique should work with other thick bristol brands too. WARNING: This method is an ink killer.

This step is optional. I only do it every once in a while. Mostly with dark-toned areas. The tones I like using for lighting are mostly purple tones.

Add the base tone for the hair. This tone will also be used for further general blending. Do NOT go over the lighting area (purple part) with this base color! To blend the purple with the base, use the purple color and color a bit over the base.

This is where it get’s tricky. Grab a darker blue tone and color the spots that you want shaded. Then, with your base tone, blend the shaded areas as shown above. The arrows represent the directions in which I apply my strokes with the base color. If you want the shading to be darker, grab an even darker tone and repeat the process.

And that’s pretty much how I do it :D I hope this kinda helps.



As promised… a turorial on how to make your eyes look bigger. I told you that my eyes are quite big naturally so I don’t really care if my make up enlarges them or not (and I like small looking eyes also since they look kinda elvish and very unique to me). Anyway, you asked me how to enlarge your eyes and so I tried out something myself (′ʘ⌄ʘ‵). Well, I think this look is best with contact lenses since it’s a very extreme one but I wanted to show you both options (-‿◦). I’m planning to post some tutorials on my blog the next few days that will show you how to enlarge your eyes more natural looking though.
