Got any art tips on drawing hands? More specifically finger placements?
SO this is kinda the template that i use to draw hands
to figure out where the fingers would go, i draw a curve to indicate where the tips of the fingers would be (or the knuckles, it works both ways). by following that curve, i’m able to figure out where the fingers would go.
you don’t have to follow it perfectly, but staying along the curve makes the finger placement look more natural and makes it easier for me to draw hands
Color Reference Guide to Recognize & Avoid Whitewashing
I’ve made a tutorial on how to color adjust to fix washed out colorings, but I noticed people aren’t always sure when their coloring needs fixing in the first place. So I’ve made a bunch of colorings you can use to compare your own to. It’s designed to help avoid whitewashing, but also help avoid over-correction.
If you’re not a content creator, you can also use this guide for reblogging as well. :)
Using the Guide
Each set comes in three: cool, neutral, and warm. If your coloring is bluer/whiter than the cool tone, consider readjusting.
Examples of what might be too pale/bright are beneath each set
There are various categories (daytime, night scenes, etc) for each type of scene you might encounter
Each coloring has a color palette beneath for the highlights, midtones, and shadows of the character’s face. If you’re having trouble eyeballing it, use the eyedropper tool to double check.
NOTES 1)For the sake of simplicity, I’ve used one character per category, but characters of color are not interchangeable. Identify the skin tone for the character you’re coloring and work with that. This is only meant to give a frame of reference for what is and isn’t whitewashing
2)If any of the colorings look different than what they’ve been stated as (i.e. the cool tones look too warm or some look way too dark to be visible) calibrate your monitor.It means your screen color and gamma needs readjustment.
HELLO! I’m not too sure on how to make a hair tutorial since i kinda just go the hell out with it (its really inconsistent it hurts lol). But i’ll try my best!
Scalp points is really important. You would want it to look natural, and from there you can control where your front hair goes. There are 3 main points, one in the middle and the other two by your temples.
I usually divides my hair sections into 3: the front, sides, and back. YOU DONT REALLY HAVE TO FOLLOW EVERYTHING THOUGH, JUST DO YOUR THANG. I know, my hair structures doesnt make sense with the points and stuffs lmao. But yeah you got my point.
Examples with different hairstyles:
Note to self: do not attempt curly hair if you’ll just fuck things up
Side view examples:
Girls Hair example:
Girls hair doesnt make sense. Just go crazy and make them fabulous queens.
So yeah, thats all i manage to think of. There are great artists out there who make better tutorials than me lmao. Check out kelpls amazing tutorials, or just look at some fancy kpop artists’ hair for reference their hair are amazing
I’ve been asked by several people how I get the affiliate and network icons so sharp in some of my groups, so I decided to write a tutorial. (This will also work for your tumblr dash icon.) I’m using Photoshop cc for mac, but I’m not using the mac shortcuts here, so it should work for PC users as well.
This is pretty basic stuff, but it’s a wordy tutorial so that anyone with less photoshop experience should be able to follow along.
THANK YOU FOR 100,000 TUMBLR FOLLOWERS ❤️ Here is the video you’ve ALL requested, a photoshop drawing tutorial! All of my tips and tricks are listed in the video description on youtube! The finished drawing is HERE.
Please thumbs up this video on youtube to help support my channel! and of course please SUBSCRIBE! :)
Tumblr’s new controls were obnoxious, disgusting and just a bad design choice in general, and I couldn’t stand it, so I wrote a script to make it actually look decent enough whilst still maintaining all the functionality. The only thing about it is that the dashboard button is gone, but that’s easily fixed with a separate link somewhere I guess.
It’s small, out of the way in the top right corner, has a transparent background and the buttons are all white with black text, but you can use filter:invert(100%) just like what we did with the old controls. [preview]
I’ve been binge watching Fine Bros Reaction videos and it just got me thinking.
This isn’t going to be coherent enough to be like a paragraph so it’s gonna be a list instead
-Bitty’s a YouTuber
-He posts regular updates to his vlog, and interacts with fans on his channel and through other forms of social media
-Now N never really tells us how YouTube famous he is, but I’m actually willing to bet that a vlog like that would have at least 1 million subs. But honestly I’m imagining more like 3-4 million, and these especially picked up during Bitty’s time at Samwell (like he had a smaller following before this, and the spike definitely happens like sophomore year and just grows into Junior/Senior year)
-(Bitty wasn’t hella aware of how much he was pining after Jack and people were there for the drama)
-SO YouTubers aren’t solitary creatures, they tend to interact with, and follow each other on YouTube and on other social media platforms
-And once Tubers become bigger, other bigger names notice them. They’re verified on Twitter, so any @’s they do are noticed by any bigger people
-(which means Beyonce definitely tweeted Bitty into his Junior/Senior year and says she loves his vlog)
-(this being in response to a tweet he sent out for his most recent video where he gushes on a Beyonce event)
-(Beyonce says she’s binge watched a lot of his stuff and now follows him on Twitter and YouTube)
-(Bitty is shook)
-So I imagine Bitty does lots of collabs! He’s totally done several with NerdyNummies, since they both bake
-and honestly? He’s paying for his college with this dough. Like he’s not making a small sum, and he donates a fuck ton of it to LGBTQ organizations, cause he likes money, but not that much.
-Like I can see him as someone who doesnt want to spend his money on himself
-Going on, he’s friends with a lot of YouTubers. He doesn’t talk about his channel much to his friends and teammates
-UNTIL ONE DAY HOLSOM BURSTS INTO HIS DOOR AND IS LIKE
-”BITS WHAT THE FUCK WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME YOU WERE GOING TO BE ON YOUTUBER’S REACT???”
-And Bitty kind of shrugs and is like “I mean, I told you guys I had a thing in NYC”
-Holsom is fuckin speechless and like dies and ends up subscribing to Bitty and watching a lot of his collabs and asking him questions and stuff
-Bitty gets into YouTube rewind for 2016
-When he gets asked, he DIES. He immediately tells his team, because this just isnt something he can keep in
-Also imagine Bitty with his silver and gold play buttons <3
-Tons of YouTubers have books, so after much prompting from his fans, he makes a cook book for them
-It sells millions of copies
-He’s on YouTubers React AGAIN but to react to Rewind
-Also, Bitty going to like Vid Con and being invited to Creator Summits
-Bitty having Vine and Music.ly phases
-Doing more collabs just with his team and like they love it and you can tell he’s just really relaxing into YouTube and like friendships and his like genuine openness about having a BF and being out to his channel and like having such a support group
-His parents totally know and love him so much. Suzanne is soooo proud of him and buys the cookbook and like all of her friends do too its SUCH a big deal
-Just <3 I need more of Bitty on YouTube and how this affects him because with his sunshine personality and everything, like he’d get a following. He really would.
Wig Hacks Wednesday #1 !
Need to quickly add length to your base wig without spending time sewing rolls and rolls of wefts? Want to use the same wig for that certain character who grew out their hair after timeskip arc? (I’m looking at you, Shonen Jump characters)
Here’s a quick way to add some sturdy length to your base wig, but still easy to remove if needed, using the ponytail wrap from Arda Wigs (Base wig in pic is a Jareth in Baby Pink)
- Using the duckbill clips, section off the hair where you want to add length. Unwrap the ponytail wrap’s velcro top. (You can see many rows of wefts on it which makes it volumous)
- Pull the small tail side through the spaces between the elastic band on the wig
- Fold in the ponytail wrap’s main side and use the little comb to secure it to the base wig
- Bring the small tail side over the main side of the ponytail wrap and press down the velcro parts to secure them to one another
- Comb and straighten the wig hair as needed to blend the textures
- She’s ready to rock hair-over-shoulder looks!
I hope this was useful for you guys. Every Wednesday, I will be sharing wig hacks for styling, tools, products, and just whatever I find interesting to add to your wig work experience!
