i literally dont know how you and other artists do it. like hoW DIGITALART??? HOWART??? ihave no idea how to improve and i have no idea how to share my art on the internet. welp. belp. help
Here is howart, in 3 easy steps:
Try to digitalart
If fail, look at process videos n see what you can steal from them, read books about howart, and also study your favourite arts and try n figure out how they were made
Try to digitalart
I did my first painting after watching one of @blvnk-art‘s process videos. Sometimes all it takes is seeing someone doing the thing in order for you to figure out how to do the thing. It blew my mind that she a) used a reference (like right there, on the canvas) and b) didN’T USE LINES?? WHAT???
As for sharing your art on the internet:
Make sure to tag your art properly so that people can find it, and don’t get too discouraged if you don’t get a lot of attention at first.
If you’re sharing it on Tumblr, remember that it might take a minute for people to get to you on this whirling blue hellsite.
For immediate validation (if that’s something you need), Instagram is much better than Tumblr, since likes take less commitment than reblogs and replies.
But if you want to build a community, make connections, and find friends, Tumblr is much more responsive, if you’re willing to slog a bit to get there.
I found a bunch of sticky notes I doodled on. (I do that a lot while I’m stuck at work)
And found this gem, I completely forgot about it.
I had a mini comic series idea for Papa Xehanort dealing with adolescent Vanitas and the trouble of raising a destructive teenager and trying to rule the world(s) at the same time.
I kind of want to pick that back up. Haha!!!
I have updated my rules slightly ( i know it’s not the best description, i’ll be doing further editing at a later date. )
it includes alterations in the following :
• there will be no smut on this blog as of now. it doesn’t mean i won’t be shipping, it doesn’t mean i won’t share nsfw hcs and perhaps images but it does mean for my own comfort i’ll no longer be writing it.
• no one is to attempt to force my muse to act a certain way. Manipulation in all forms is a completely different topic. I’m talking about “ shoving things down my throat “ in the terms of how you think / want him to act. ( i apologize if this comes across as blunt or rude but i made him a certain way and that is how he is. )
• i’ll becoming slightly more selective on who i ship with. There will have to be alot of development and chemistry between the two characters in order to formulate a ship. Wolf’s had a pretty crappy past, he’s not gonna be so quick to trust / like someone let alone ‘ fall in love ‘.
I wouldn’t say writing is a talent of mine, but I somehow found the inspiration to write a small drabble. I would like to direct your attention at @fy-soukoku . They’d the ones who created this beautiful AU and if you haven’t read it yet, what are you doing?? Go read it now!
Keep in mind my drabble is an idea, nothing more. fy-soukoku is “cannon” while mine is “head cannon”.
The day had been long and uneventful. Chuuya sort of grasped the concepts that were being taught, but he didn’t like how the teachers would look at him. He’s seen it all. From disgusted, impatient, dissatisfaction, fear, you name it. It would dampen any desire he had for learning. There were only a selected few he tolerated, but once he was in a sour mood, he didn’t want to see or deal with any teacher for the rest of the day. He opted with ditching his last period, he didn’t want to see another authoritative figure for the rest of the day.
He went to his usual spot, behind the bleachers away from anyone’s eyes. He pulled a cigarette from his jacket and inserted it between his rose lips. His lips were always smooth and moisturized despite his little habit. Granted he never smoked excessively when he was in middle school, but his fix for it started to pick up this year. He brought the light to the tip of the cigarette and took a deep breath. This was a spot where he came to clear his mind, to find temporary peace.
He held the cigarette between two slender fingers and watched as the smoke floated away. It put him on a trance that numbed him to his surroundings. So much that he didn’t notice he had a visitor. At least, not right away. But once he notice, the person was already a few feet away from him. They spoke before he could see them.
“You’re a bit far from your class.”
Chuuya turned to get a glimpse at his guest. He liked what he saw, tall, unblemished skin, messy black hair, and violet eyes. By God, he could just sink into those purple irises. He brought the cigarette to his lips and took a puff and exhaling before speaking.
“And you care why?”
The other male lacked expression, but he had an intense aura that brought a shiver down Chuuya’s spine, and when he spoke his whole body was submerged in ice cold water.
“I wouldn’t say I particularly cared about you absence from class,” he paused and took a few steps closer. The sway of his hips was graceful, his movements have him mesmerized, “ but I am interested in you.”
His eyes bore straight into his cerulean eyes. He’d be lying if he said he wasn’t interested at all in this man, but he wasn’t going to admit to it so easily either. There was no fun in that. He took a few seconds to smoke, before addressing the other.
“I’m flattered, but I can’t say I feel the same way about you.” The redhead walked towards the other with utmost grace, stopping a just a mere few feet in front of him. Damn, he was tall, granted, height wasn’t his most impressive feature, but he has to strain his neck to get a good look at his face. “But you’re, welcome to change my mind.”
The other had a smile of pure mischief, he liked that. “Well, why don’t we start off with introductions,” he held out a pale, lithe hand, “Fyodor Dostoevsky.”
Chuuya stared at the dark haired man’s hands for a moment. In that second, he was fixated on the small blemishes on the other’s finger tips. They looked self inflicted, but more out of an anxious habit. Once he finished scanning the other’s hand, his eyes meet with Fyodor’s. A smile spread on the redhead’s face revealing craters on the corners of his mouth. While still keeping eye contact, he reached out to grab the Russian’s hand. They were cold, but smooth aside from his calloused fingertips. From just one touch from his hands, Chuuya wanted to explore ever inch of the other’s body.
“Chuuya Nakahara, but I’m guessing you already know who I am since you came looking for me.”
“ Subtle stories here and there. But I have to say, your reputation isn’t exactly what drew me to you.”
“Oh, it’s isn’t?” The redhead raises a pierced eyebrow. “ Then what did?”
Hunger flashed momentarily in those purple irises. “You have this…raw energy. Powerful, destructive, uncontained. I desire it, I desire you.”
Chuuya knew he was potentially treading in dangerous waters, he didn’t care either way. Danger didn’t frighten him. It made him euphoric. He craved it, how was he supposed to resist this person? A soft chuckle escaped his lips, well show me what you have to offer.”
I don’t know if I can call this a “salty post” but it’s definetly a post I’m gonna use to to get out of my chest the feelings and thoughts that I need to express. I am going to do it under the cut, so if you decide to read it, it’s under your own responsability.
If you don't mind me asking how did you get into H&L?
SO! It all started thanks to Toei’s WORST CHRISTMAS SPECIAL OF 2016\
… Actually no, because I didn’t keep up with Ex-aid until around episode 38 or so. XD BUT! I got into it around the time Ex-aid was wrapping up and people were looking for a new show to watch with some of the actors in it! One of my friends on twitter had asked if there was anything else that Kiriya was in and High & Low was suggested.
Soooo yeah, I heard about it because of this kid:
I didn’t think too much about it because I was still waist deep in FFXV hell at the time but my boyfriend and I watched the first two episodes and I was digging the music and the pretty boys but MAN that pacing was throwing me off. SO I held off on watching more for a little bit longer.
Around this time, @gorou-chan was doing a High & Low liveblog and so LOTS OF ROCKY ALL OVER MY DASH at the time. So I saw lots of bits and pieces of it :3 I also kept on finding out that more and more Toku actors were in it which kept me wanting to watch more because yay, people I recognize =D
AND THEN. I saw this trailer.
And I as completely sold at that point. Smokey became the love of my life and the sunshine of my soul. I had left Ignis for the homeless parkour gang leader and life hasn’t been the same since. Ahahaha
