OMG YOUR ART IS AWESOME!!!!!!:DDD wait just wondering how do you shade? :)

It involves the following:

-a super soft airbrush
-clipping masks with multiply layers for the darkening, sometimes overlay and add/luminosity for the lightening (depending on your program, I use Clip Studio so I’ll be referring to it as “add”.)
-A decently hard, but not too hard eraser. 
-Pain, screaming and joy. (this last one here can be done any time throughout your shading process)

Apparently, my style of shading is considered interesting by a few people (these are their words, not mine), because while most people paint in their shades with strokes of pain, I erase where the lighting hits. 

For this tutorial, I’m gonna use this drawing of a small child that I apparently have:

Step 1: Softly shade in your shadows
Considering this is gonna be on a multiply layer, I would pick a different color like a soft shade of blue or a soft shade of purple. Depending on the drawing, you can use other colors, too. Like so…

Slap this shit onto Multiply and you get this:

Step 2: Put another clipping mask on the layer above the soft shade, set that to multiply, and fill it all.
It’ll look jarring at first, but bear with me,

Step 3: With a somewhat hard eraser, erase where the lighting hits.
This part will depend on your own knowledge of lighting. If you need help, there are countless tutorials on the web to assist :P

Anyway, this is my shading eraser’s settings:

and this is what this looks like when I apply it:

Of course, I’m no expert in lighting, but this is good enough.

Optional step: Add another multiply layer above this one to add more shadows in places that need it.

Like certain parts of his hair might need this:

With lighting, like for the hair, you put MORE clipping masks, but either in overlay or add (or luminosity). For the hair, it’s recommended you do one layer with soft lighting, and another above it for hard lighting.

In the case with the hair, it’s soft airbrush for the first overlay layer.

And I actually manually draw in the hard light rather than erase-shade. In the case with the hair, I use a pen.

And everything else you can just fuck around with. Optional things I do is use certain blending modes to smooth out certain areas, add an add layer above the lineart to add stray strokes of hair, and add a screen layer above everything to give it a soft glow look.

I certainly can’t speak for everybody, so try some techniques yourself and what not! 

Hope this helped!

How do i begin to do magic or learn about? I mean, i do not believe in goddess, so where does magic come from? How do i learn? What can i do or not be able to do? Are there rules or something? By the way, thank you, your blog is awesome ~

Hello! I am going to try to break this down into sections, to answer a bit easier.

Please note, a lot of this is my own opinion, and others may agree / disagree, and that is okay. However, you did ask me, so this is what I have to say, and I hope it proves useful to you. If you don’t agree with something I say, or you feel differently, that’s okay, because magic is full of things like that. (I talk a little more about that further on).

How do I begin to do magic?

Well, you decide you want to do magic, you pick out some spells or methods you want to try, and you try them. :p That may seem really broad and not specific, but that is really it. Firstly, you will need to do some research (and I will talk about that below) on a branch of magic you are interested in (and there are many, but I won’t bring that up here just now). Once you’ve done your research, and you have an idea of where you want to begin, try some spells / methods, experiment if you feel comfortable enough doing so (though it can always wait until when you have more experience), and go from there.

[How to Do Magic]

How do I begin to learn about magic?

Research. And lots of it. Look for as many resources as you can find, online as well as in the physical world. Books, guides, tutorials, blogs, web pages. Cross check anything you find with other sources, no matter where you see it - you will find conflicting information, because magic is such a personal thing and therefore varies from person to person. This is okay. Try out one thing, see if it works, and if not try it out another way. Magic is a lot of research, testing and experimentation, then making note of what works for you, and trying something else.

Here are some lists of book recommendations:

[Here] is a list of authors you should try to avoid - trigger warning for mention of various disturbing topics. [Here] is a post that talks about why your book on witchcraft might be full of it; if you have any questions as to why that might be, feel free to ask the OP or even myself. [Here] is a post that explains using discretion and critical reading in regards to witchcraft books.

I do not believe in deities, so where does magic come from?

Everywhere. The way a lot of us see magic is the manipulation of energy. Therefore, anything that has energy can be used in magic. Therefore, there is magical potential in anything. Mostly people get magic from the earth and the elements, or themselves; people also get the energy to fuel magic from objects that are known to carry potent energy for specific purposes - herbs, crystals, candles, etc. 

What can I do? What am I not able to do?

Do whatever you want - try whatever you want. Not everything will work for everyone, so I can’t say what may work for you or what may not. For instance, sigils work for me, but they may not for you, for various reasons. So, it’s a matter of playing around with different methods and seeing what you like and what works for you. 

There are some things I find magic can’t really affect - such as changing physical appearance or form in this plane, or completely removing illness from the body, just as a few examples. Magic is more useful for increasing the odds or likeliness of a thing to happen, but it cannot permanently guarantee a thing to happen. 

Are there rules?

Well, there can be, if you want to set them for yourself. There aren’t really any universal rules for being a magic user. There isn’t any set dogma or list of things you can or cannot do to be classified as a magic user.

Some people will talk about cursing or whatever here, but that is still a matter of personal choice and individual morals. If you want to, cool, if you don’t want to, also cool. What isn’t cool is trying to tell other people how they should practice. (Also why I’m not really talking about rules here, because that’s up to you to decide how you wanna practice.)

Besides that, the only thing I can think of would be the limits of physics, but that isn’t so much a rule as boundaries of the practice, things it just can’t do at this time.

By the way, thank you, your blog is awesome ~

Haha well thank you! I hope this helps you. I would also recommend checking out the [Advice for Witchlings] page on my blog, or [this post full of advice and tips for a beginner witch]. They have more information that may be helpful to you as well. :) If you still have any more questions, you know where to find me. Best of luck on your path! :D

On Character Design: Part 2

Ages ago before most of you found my tumblr, I posted this:

I wanted to expand a bit on that post with some additional points.

In my first journal I talked a bit about the things I avoid doing when designing characters, but I think I’d like to spend some time & attention on what I *do* focus on.

1. Avoidance of the overly remarkable visual hero syndrome

Now I know that title sounds like I’m once again talking about what I *don’t* do, but listen up; Most people do FINE at designing recognisable party members & protagonists. 

And … to me that’s a bit of an issue. It reminds me a lot of playing an old RPG where they reuse the same NPC sprites in every town 5 times and then there’s one character in the town who stands out like a sore thumb, visually. 
Every time I see that my head just instantly goes: “GEE, I WONDER WHO MIGHT JOIN MY PARTY IN THIS TOWN”. Rather than care about various unique characters that make the town alive, visually those games already tell you “ignore the other stuff, this is the important thing." 

These four people are hanging out in the local pub,
guess which one joins your party/is the final boss?

Now obviously you can argue "Hey but sometimes important people stand out more!” which is fine, but here’s the thing: When your party member is supposed to be a totally regular villager who just happens to aid you (often the case), or when a village/location is meant to be filled with badass characters … inappropriate visual cues can ruin the illusion.

In the image shown above we’ve got dirt poor villagers & an arrogant isolationist hero who outright avoids hanging out where the regular villagers do. He’d stand out but he should and wants to. 

These four random villagers are hanging out in the town square,
which of these will give up their regular life to go adventure!?

Uniformity of style & wardrobe is a tool you can use to make it clear a person really was a regular villager until adventure got in their way.

Nobody expects the plain village girl clad in brown rags to step up and save our extravagant hero at the last moment, so it makes her step towards becoming a full fledged hero all the more impressive. She wasn’t someone designed from the ground up to be “miss iconic hero”, she started out wearing scraps and being just like the other villagers.

A GREAT example of this principle in action is the manga/anime Attack on Titan. The forced uniformity surrounding the entire cast combined with an avoidance of absurd haircolours/traits makes the characters feel far less significant and unique. Whenever you see people wearing the same uniform die horrid deaths you feel like it could’ve just as well been one of the characters you love, because everyone’s a redshirt.

Okay that all makes sense, but tons of your characters still have unique larger than life designs, what’s up with that?

Good question with a simple answer: Because the extreme can be taken two ways:

Here’s my comic’s 3 protagonists when compared to equals/peers of sorts.

Noah (line 1) has a strong social uniformity due to him and other students from his story all wearing school outfits. They’re uniform because they have to be. 

Tobi (line 2) has what I call a strong cultural uniformity, she’s from an isolated location with minimal outside influence on fashion and wardrobe + strong environmental influences. 

Burk (line 3) is hard to pin down because he’s always on the move, aside from arguably camping him in with pseudo-nudists his peers are other hero-like characters like himself. Usually anyone of this status has quite a bit of fame, a lot of travel experience and *a lot* of freedom in choosing how they present themselves. Considering it’s usually not a role taken by people who’d rather not have notice taken of them this leads to more extravagant outfit/colour choices.

The important thing I try to do is have these choices all be possible alongside eachother. Eventhough a character’s role & interests will obviously dictate who they’ll interact with, I never try to lose sight of the fact that every group, no matter how uniform or unique they might present themselves, is still a group compsed of different characters. The visuals simply que us in on how they present themselves.


This brings me to the final point of this particular post, character’s faces. (and to a degree body type/race/etc)

Would you believe me if I told you these were all the same guy?

As I mentioned earlier, changing a character’s clothes can indicate a change of attitude or role. But this does rely heavily on your character being unique enough to have a significant change in style/wardrobe without them turning out near-unrecognisable. And that brings us to an important point: If you give a villager clad in brown clothes a generic face you use over and over … spoilers: people know this character could never ever matter. And this isn’t a matter of actually making every villager significant, it’s a matter of not designing your world to feel centered around a few unique individuals while everyone else feels like a carbon copy extra in a low budget play. (high budget enough to clone identical twins*)

To summarise, these are some weak mooks at the start of Burk’s story. (weak, as in, Burk can take out 5 of them in one punch)

If you asked a reader which one is Norman, they could tell you.
Because Norman is allowed to have a recognisable face.

Anyway that’s all.

1. As always, this is just my opinion & some insight into my thought process when designing characters, as I often hear people asking about it. I’m not saying how I do it is the best way/ideal or that other methods are a sin against creativity. Thanks for reading and I hope it helps some people out!

Week 10 of the #YearofStitch: Spider Web Stitch

As promised, this is your second stitch this week to make up for last weeks. Stupid shingles! 

This is such a funky dunky stitch. It looks like a spider web but you can also fill it all in and it suddenly becomes a beautiful flower. Play around with this one. You can vary the length of the base stitches, try different thread counts (pictured below is 6 thread floss), get crazy with it! 

The one thing you should be aware of is that you will want an odd number of lines in your base star stitch. 5, 7, 9, 11, 99 … it just makes the weaving part a lot easier. 


Photo Tutorial:

Remember the Algerian Eye from a few weeks ago? Same approach. Build the star (with an odd number of stitches).

Bring the 2nd thread up from the back close to the center and start weaving (over, under, over, under) for as long as you like.

Once you are finished, jab that needle under the weaving to hide the end. Pull it through to the back and tie it off. 


Fancy right?

Happy Stitching



Bias Tape Cheat-No Pins!

One of the coolest things I’ve learned to do at Hancocks is to put bias tape on things without pinning it! I’ve wanted to share the skill with everyone for awhile but had no excuse until now! I made my Wrist band for Roxas from Kingdom Hearts and took pictures so uh…here it goes!

Pin Free Bias Tape Edging! 

It’s all thanks to a product called Web Bond! It’s used a lot in quilting for placing and holding squares! It’s not a permanent bonding agent so, if you mess up aligning it, you can move it!

I personally have Mettler! Okay so lets see how to do it!

Do you know the difference between margin and padding?

To summarize:

  • Padding is the space inside a box

  • Margin is the space outside a box

Given that info:

  • Use padding when you want space between the contents of the box and the box’s edges

  • Use margin when you want space between the box and other boxes

Or, in other words, I’d say…

  1. Do I want more space, aka “breathing room” inside this box? Use padding.

  2. Do I want more space between this box and other elements on the page? Use margins.

When you have a background color or a border turned on for your box (i.e. a distinguishing edge), it’s easier to visually see why you would want to use padding or margin.

It’s just trickier when you don’t have some distinguishing edge to your box, because then padding and margin appear to be behaving in the same way.

In those cases, either one can get the job done. I.e. it’s not always necessarily a “you have to use padding* or "you have to use margin” situation.

Here’s a couple more points that distinguish margin and padding from one another:

  1. When you use padding it adds to the overall width of your elements. Ex, if you set the width of a box to be 100px but have 10px padding, you actually will have an element that is 120px wide (10px padding on either side).

  2. Margins collapse. This means if I have two boxes next to one another, each with a 10px margin…The distance between them will not be 20px (10px + 10px). Instead, the margins will collapse so the margin is for realz 10px.

I feel like a 2 yo using fire alpaca.... I don't understand anything, I want to cry.

A tutorial/overview (possibly a little fast) from Leslielu Marie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F632SztGENc

Note: she has both tools and options along the top, a default Windows install will have tools down the left side and only options at the top. Her recording software is not showing the menus (she calls them tabs) along the top.

(She has other tutorials too)

Another good 2-part tutorial video (a little slow getting started for the first minute or two) showing a complete art example walkthrough:

A static tutorial set (tall long image of several screenshots stitched together, click on the image to enlarge, scroll down):

Another good web page tutorial with screenshots of selected areas and elements and text to read. Not the best font. Use Ctrl+mousewheel to zoom in on a web page for easier reading.

FireAlpaca, like most paint software, works best with a graphics tablet - a mouse alternative where instead of a mouse you draw with a plastic-tipped pen onto a plastic plate (the tablet) on the desk while still looking at the screen like with a mouse. As well as being a LOT easier to draw with a pen than a mouse, the pen and tablet also provide pressure information to paint software (press harder to get thicker lines).

Best brands in my personal opinion are Wacom (home Intuos range and professional Intuos Pro range) and Huion.

If you don’t have a tablet, only a mouse, you can look at this set of tutorials (most of it also applies if you do have a tablet) ( click on the image to enlarge, scroll down) :

sl3dman  asked:

So, I want to go into college for computer science but I don't know how to prepare myself. Do you know of any ways that I can make myself ready? (I'm in my sophomore year of high school right now)

This is a great question, thank you so much for asking it! There are a lot of resources for starting out in computer science, on the web and otherwise, but I’m always happy to share some of my personal favourites. I’ll try and discuss the various advantages and disadvantages of each resource and their pedagogies, so this might be a bit of a long post.

I think the best place to start depends somewhat on what aspects of computer science you’re the most interested in and where you intend to go in the future. Of course, if you’re not sure quite yet, that’s okay, too – but you might want to try sampling some very different areas of CS to get a feel for what kind of things you’re into. 

Similarly, I cannot stress enough the importance of learning as many different programming languages as you can. This is important both for career reasons, as you’ll have more job options and not be left in the dust when a particular language or technology passes out of vogue, but also because exposure to multiple languages, and therefore also multiple ways of thinking about programming, is incredibly mind-expanding and will make you a better programmer with a deeper understanding of how computers work. Most CS departments have one or two languages that they use primarily, especially in their intro courses; most of the time, it’s C or Java, and occasionally Python. A better school will try to expose you to a wider range of languages — that might be something to keep in mind when looking for colleges — but it’s generally, I think, a good idea to try and sample a wide variety of programming languages and paradigms in one’s free time.

A lot of introductory programming tutorials, especially ones on the web, like to start you off with a simple scripting language that’s easy to use and relatively forgiving. This is not a particularly bad idea, because if you’re using a language that’s syntactically simple and doesn’t require much jumping through hoops, you can learn more about the fundamental concepts of computer science, like data structures, algorithms, and software architecture without having to struggle with syntax. 

I think the best example of this sort of tutorial is the book How to Think Like a Computer Scientist, by Allen B. Downey, who teaches at Olin College of Engineering. How to Think Like a Computer Scientist, which is free online here, starts you off learning the Python programming language. Python is probably a good language for beginners, it’s simple, easy to use, and more or less logical; and most of its major flaws, such as being really unsuitable for high-performance computing, generally don’t really matter when you’re just starting out. Rather than having to learn about Python’s warts and idiosyncrasies, you get to learn computer science, and you can branch out to other languages easily, having learned skills that apply anywhere.

If you know you’re more interested in low-level programming, like operating systems, device drivers, and embedded systems, you’re going to want to learn C. C is still the lingua franca of systems programming, and although there are some new languages targeting that space, it likely will not be displaced for some time. C is a much more challenging language to learn than Python, but in learning it, you’ll also learn a great deal about how computers work at a low level, which will be beneficial to you no matter what you end up working on. 

In my opinion, one of the best C tutorials on the web is Learn C the Hard Way. Learn C the Hard Way is not really intended for complete beginners; you should have at least a little programming experience before attempting it, but if you’ve played around with programming a bit in the past, it shouldn’t be too tough. The same author also wrote Learn Python the Hard Way, which they suggest people who’ve never programmed before complete before LCTHW. Those two tutorials, completed in series, would be a good alternative to How to Think Like a Computer Scientist for someone interested in lower-level programming. 

I’m also a huge fan of Randall Hyde’s excellent series of books Write Great Code, but they’re also predicated on some prior programming experience. The first volume, Understanding the Machine, might be a good introduction to computer architecture and organisation for someone who’s just learned C the hard way. I should also add that I am working on some C tutorials for some friends of mine, but they are nowhere near complete at the moment. If you’re really interested in learning from me directly (which, gosh, is super flattering!) I’d be happy to put some more effort into them.

Finally, I have to mention what is probably my favourite introduction to programming of them all, the book Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programming, Second Edition, by Hal Abelson, Gerald Sussman, and Julie Sussman. Nicknamed the “Wizard Book,” SICP was the text for MIT’s introductory programming courses for many years — a stunning endorsement in and of itself! SICP teaches you Scheme, a variant of the LISP programming language, the second-oldest programming language still in use today. LISP, according to many people, is like your father’s lightsaber — an ‘elegant weapon from a more civilised age’. LISP and its variants have a unique beauty or elegance that other programming languages, for all their strengths, cannot quite imitate; it’s simple, and yet incredibly expressive and powerful. I have always thought that programming in LISP is one of the best ways to learn the cognitive styles of a truly great programmer. While it’s not as low-level or close to the machine as C, LISPs are powerful, elegant, and promote algorithmic thinking; they’re great languages to learn if you’re interested in programming languages, functional programming, or in the more conceptual aspects of computer science. The Wizard Book, which is free online here, may be a bit tricky occasionally, but if you stick with it, it’ll turn you into a wizard.

Those are some of my favourite introductory programming resources. I’ll leave you with this quote from the Wizard Book, which I think captures quite nicely the power and beauty of programming as an activity, as a taste of what’s in your future:

“A computational process is indeed much like a sorcerer’s idea of a spirit. It cannot be seen or touched. It is not composed of matter at all. However, it is very real. It can perform intellectual work. It can answer questions. It can affect the world by disbursing money at a bank or by controlling a robot arm in a factory. The programs we use to conjure processes are like a sorcerer’s spells.”
– Harold Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman with Julie Sussman. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, Second Edition

If you have any further questions or ever just want to chat about computer science, don’t hesitate to let me know! I’m always happy to talk about this sort of thing!

Seorang Istri Bisa Memasak, Harus Atau Perlu?

Beberapa hari ini saya rajin sekali mengunjungi salah satu web tutorial memasak. Yang dimasak macam-macam, dari mulai kudapan hingga makanan utama. Melihatnya seperti sesuatu yang mudah untuk dikerjakan. Namun jika detik ini, setelah saya melihat beberapa video tutorial itu disuruh ke dapur lalu memraktekkan apa yang sudah saya lihat, saya jamin tak akan pernah semudah yang koki itu lakukan. Memasukkan bumbu-bumbu tanpa ketakutan akan keasinan atau terlalu manis. Memanggang, menggoreng atau menumis masakan tanpa resah akan gosong atau belum matang. Dan lagi, kalau saya memasak pastinya tidak akan sesantai itu, dapur berantakan atau bahkan muka penuh cemong.

Alinea kedua ini saya mengaku belum terlalu mahir dalam memasak. Terakhir kali memasak sekitar dua atau tiga hari yang lalu. Itu pun hanya air panas dan mie instan. Kalau itu tidak masuk ke dalam kategori memasak, berarti sekitar minggu lalu terakhir saya memasak, ya hanya memasak nasi goreng. Itu pun terlalu asin dan terlalu berminyak. 

Berbeda dengan jaman kuliah yang hampir setiap minggu ada praktek memasak. Mau itu praktek memasak kuliner dasar (mata kuliah yang mempelajari masakan sederhana, tidak terlalu rumit dan lebih banyak makanan dalam negeri), kuliner lanjut (mata kuliah yang mempelajari masakan sedikit rumit, mungkin karena tidak terbiasa dengan bahan makanan yang digunakan dan cara pengolahannya, lebih banyak mempelajari masakan luar negeri), gizi daur (memasak masakan yang sudah ditentukan nilai gizi dan menunya untuk orang sehat) sampai dengan dietetik (memasak masakan untuk orang sakit yang gula dan garam saja diperhatikan, pemilihan bahan makanan harus jeli, kalau tidak dicerca Bu Nelly dan Bu Emi – dosen saya yang jika menilai dan mencerca masakan mahasiswa nyerinya bisa sampai ulu hati). Selepas lulus saya jarang sekali ke dapur. Membantu Ibu memasak pun hanya sekedar menyiangi sayur dan bawang selebihnya mencuci dan memotong-motong daging atau sayuran. Dasar anak durjana. Pft.

Pagi ini setelah menghabiskan dua entah tiga video tutorial memasak, saya sampai pada pertanyaan seperti judul di atas. Dua orang teman kantor, bapak-bapak muda yang sudah memiliki satu sampai dua orang anak saya tanya-tanyai. Seperti diwawancara perusahaan, kata mereka. Saya menyanggahnya, anggap saya sedang mencari ilmu. Saya tanya, dulu awal menikah istri mereka bisa memasak tidak? Ada yang istrinya memang sudah jago memasak dari jaman masih gadis, ada yang istrinya tidak begitu pandai memasak namun bisa dan berkembang waktu ke waktu. Lalu saya tanya kembali, jika masakan istri tidak enak reaksinya bagaimana? Semua kompak menjawab akan terus memakan masakan istri, ‘Sesekali saya mengkritik kurang apa atau terlalu apa, hanya agar ke depannya bisa istri saya koreksi di mana letak salahnya. Ga apa masakan ia ga enak di lidah saya. Tapi kalau sampai teman saya ke rumah dan masakan istri saya kurang enak, jangan sampai.’ tutur om-om anak dua. ‘Kalau saya bukan tipikal yang harus masakan istri selalu enak di lidah, saya berusaha untuk menghargai. Oke saya bilang ini masakan agak asin, tapi setelahnya saya hargai dengan tetap memakannya hingga habis, karena saya tahu istri saya berusaha untuk menyenangkan lidah saya.’ jawaban bijak dari bapak muda lainnya.

Mengakhiri perbincangan, saya tanya juga ‘Saat menikahi gadis pilihan om-om, ada syarat istri harus pintar masak ga?’ dan jawaban mereka terpecah menjadi dua, namun satu arah. Yang pertama, ‘Haruslah, saya orangnya gampang ilfeel. Mau cewek secantik apa, kemudian saya tahu dia tidak bisa memasak, saya ilfeel. Sama halnya saya melihat cewek cantik dan seksi, tahunya dia merokok.’ Yang kedua menjawab, ‘Untuk pintar mungkin saya tidak akan menuntut sejago chef-chef ternama. Tapi untuk bisa masak itu perlu. Masa iya nanti beli makanan di luar terus, susu bayi apa kabar?’ Saya mengangguk-ngangguk tanda saya paham apa yang tersirat.

Kemudian, untuk menjawab pertanyaan dari judul tulisan ini sebenarnya hanya tinggal membaca ulang judul. (Saya penulis yang memusingkan, terkadang. Maafkan.) Pertanyaan dan jawaban ada di sana. Ya, seorang istri harus bisa memasak. Setidaknya masakan sederhana rumahan. Kalau memiliki kepintar mengolah masakan menjadi makanan yang bercita rasa restoran, anggap bonus untuk suami. Namun bisa, tetap harus. Kalau kata seseorang, ‘Mending mana? Suami makan di rumah atau ‘jajan di luar?’ 

Nah sehubungan saya masih gadis dan bukan janda karena menikah saja belum, tulisan ini semacam motivasi untuk diri sendiri. Harus lebih banyak berlatih, membantu Ibu, bertandang ke dapur. Tidak hanya tahu makan saja.  

Just in time for the Halloween season, spooky spider nail art tutorial!

1. Paint your base with a purple polish.
2. Using white polish, make about 3 straight lines branched out from the top corner of the nail.
3. Draw lines connecting each of these lines. These lines should be curved inwards.
4. Draw more of these lines until the web is full.
5. Draw a line straight down from one of the web branches.
6. Make an oval with black polish at the bottom of the line.
7. Draw “L” shaped lines coming out of the oval for the spider’s legs.

Finish off with topcoat and have a super spooky time!
