what colors should i do tho

komoii  asked:

Do you think (if it isn't too much trouble) you could give me a couple of art tips? I really love the way you draw and it would be really nice if I could get pointers from an artist I like. Don't feel you have to though! :)


-don’t shade with black!! blease!!

-if you’re just doodling i recommend doodling rly rly fast!! especially when it comes to full bodies or dynamic poses!

-try practicing thinner lines in lineart! idk why but it helped me??

-remember to take breaks to stretch!! your back will thank u!

-use reference pictures! NOT the drawings of someone else bc everybody makes mistakes in their art and its best if you use an actual picture as a ref!

-dont trace! that way you won’t learn anything :o (unless you’re lazy like me, i usually just trace like backgrounds from pictures sometimes or some furniture but usually its best to try and draw it by yourself!)

-dont go too crazy on luminosity and overlays and such if you use sai! sometimes less is more (unless you really  know what you’re doing)

-although luminosities and overlays may help setting the tone of the drawing!! i recommend finding some inspo on tumblr and it’s fanarts! there are also plenty tutorials on how to color!

-shade with a darker colder color from the base color and light up the drawing with a warmer lighter color!

-it’s just my opinion but i think that sometimes a more cleaned up sketch is much better than really stiff lineart! although i’m not saying you should stop practicing it tho >:O

-it’s ok to take breaks from drawing but make sure they’re not too long! i’m not saying you should full on paint 3000x3000 paintings but at least doodle a little!

-make sure your colors dont blend in together! i had this issue with coloring where sometimes the skin had the same as the background or the hair for example lmao

-when you are doing lineart, have your sketch layer set really low so you can see what you’re actually doing

-make sure your drawing fills out the whole canvas! don’t be afraid to crop your drawings unless you have backgrounds!

-don’t give up! it’s not a race! and have fun!

-remember that progress doesn’t happen overnight and be patient >:0

this is what i’ve learned over the years at least :O

All hail showers, the worlds greatest source of inspiration. 

  • It’s April 1st, and Nicky decides to go on a pranking spree 
  • This naturally starts a prank war
  • What happens during this prank war is actually not important to our story, so I’ll leave that to you guys.
  • What is important is that Neil keeps getting pranked because he doesn’t know what April Fools is. 
  • At the end of the day Nicky explains and he just goes “oh”. Ya know, that kind of “oh” that really means “oooh I should do that" 
  • Well the foxes forget all about it. 
  • But Neil doesn’t. 
  • See this whole post is born from the fact that we, as a fandom, seldom talk about Neil spending nearly a decade switching personalities like most people switch clothes.
  • Not Neil tho he’s better with personality than clothes I mean Jesus fuck kid, jorts? 
  • What I’m getting at here is: Neil is fucking amazing at impressions.
  • Which the Foxes find out the next April when Neil shows up to practice in the morning with black hair, green color contacts, and a tattoo of a chess queen on his cheek.
  • Kevin is horrified.
  • The upperclassmen are delighted.
  • Nicky starts laughing literally every time Mini Kevin opens his mouth.
  • Aaron acts like he doesn’t care but he secretly records the whole thing with his phone and it’s gold.
  • He doesn’t show it, but this is the first thing Andrew’s found genuinely funny since he got off his meds.
  • Neil doesn’t break character once, no matter how many times Kevin tries to trip him. His imitiation of Kevin’s voice is perfect. He berates Andrew for his eating, criticizes everyone and everything during practice, real Kevin included, and mutters curses in French whenever something doesn’t go his way.
  • The foxes would’ve gotten tired of it quick if not for real Kevin acting NOTHING like himself for all of this. It’s like Mini Kevin stole his personality.
  • Right after afternoon practice Kevin gets a phone call from Jeremy.
  • Aaron uploaded the video to youtube and it got over a million views in under an hour and a half. The trojans are watching it on repeat. Jean laughed so hard he fell back from his chair and hit his head on the floor, rendering him briefly unconscious.
  • Kevin doesn’t tell anyone about this.
  • (Not that he needed to. Jean already called Renee and told her the story between fits of laughter.)
  • It makes the evening sports review channel news.
  • But by next morning it’s back to regular Neil.
  • And that’s the story of how Neil was invited to guest on Saturday Night Live

anonymous asked:

Can we make our own Fluorites like yours if we credit you? :oc

I’ve actually been asked this, and I don’t mind if you use my design for fluorites as long as im credited! (I’d maybe even draw fluorite’s based off my design. ;))

Also I don’t care what hairstyle people use, as long as its not this

Its for my “main” fluorite.

The Basic hair style for my Fluorite’s is this

if you choose to change the hairstyle for yours that is fine. Tho a little note, they tend to angler hair.

Also my fluorite’s outfits tend to do the color thing… you can choose any type of outfit you want for them, but i thought i should note that also.

But have fun! I would love to see them!

U rite, tho.  Those are such captor palettes, damn.


Uh so yesterday I couldn’t decide if I want Magnus or Kitty icon and in the end I chose Magnus one but I already had Kitty without background and I don’t want to feel like I wasted my time so now what should I do with that? Well use 6 random colours as the background and post it on tumblr!! …if you want another colour just tell me (but you know who has time to actually pick good colours)

The colors are:

#9AD7B9 #FFFCD6 #7580D6

anonymous asked:

hi I just saw ur speedpaint and it was awesomee (even tho hearing be my bad boy ended my life on the spot) I was wondering if u could explain how u did ? all the lighting/shading like what kind of layers and colors etc ?? if not it's cool it's kind of asking a lot either way thanks for the speedpaint and kinda showing ur process bc ur art is super cool !!!

oh if i do another one should i?? include that?? i just thought the paintin part was all you show bUT ILL BREAK IT DOWN RLLY QUICK!! DONT WORRY IT AINT NOTHIN!!!

OK SO!! when i finish puttin down base colors/some basic coloring i like puttin a shade of SOMETHING over it all so it blends together better

thats what this part is!! i put it on multiply and INITIALLY i put this yellow thing here BECAUSE i wanted to have lighting from the bottom …. but like…when i put it all together and set it on overlay……….

it looked BAD


merged it all together with the base colors and whuop!!

THEN!! i added the background and my friend thought it’d be cool if it looked backlit

which is… this. basically. if you needed an example.


then got the colors from the sunny part of the BG,put them on the outline of wherever the multiply WASN’T nd put that shit on overlay and on a clipping group over the original blended together blueish colors just to make it easier on me.

like this.

to make this


LOOK AT THE COLORS GUYS LOOK AT THEM!!! Finally some bright colored fabrics with good quality! Bad news, they only have those for 2-3 days, then it’s leaving for Fabricland where it will be sold for 4X the price. Good news I can ask them to put some on hold for me. I’ll put as many as I can pay aside. Bad news is that it’s a one deal shipment, so after that is sold they can’t get more for me. Good news is that the manager knows me well now and I was able to visit secret corners of the store haha.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU UNDERSWAP FANS!!! See this orange on top? It looks very bright, tangerine in real. The quality is top tier, but it’s too vibrant for what I imagine for US!Paps. Should I do it anyway? I’d really like to have the US skelebros together on the shop. I could always change the color if/when I find something less bright. Question is: would you buy a US!Pap hoodie in this tangerine orange color?

Hi zephyo, sorry for bothering you but I was wondering how do you tackle learning? I've stopped drawing because I was overwhelmed while learning the fundamentals of art, but I want to start drawing again :) Btw I've been following your art for about two years now, they're really amazing so keep up the good work <3

omg nice anons are never a bother!

I try to make learning fun. Boring learning is ineffective! You want to be intrinsically motivated to learn - aka, you want to learn about color because you enjoy learning about color, not because you want to make a bombass portrait and your colors seem to suck <- you’re not learning about color for the sake of color.

So this is what I do nowadays: whatever I’m in the mood for - drawing beautiful nekkid ppl or seeing the nice dichotomy of cool greys against red - I do. I shut off all distractions - phone, games, that nice cheesecake ooh so tempting - and with the aid of good resources and motivating music, I draw for hours. And I enjoy it.

Here are some good resources

All of Andrew Loomis’s books (anatomy) (yes there are PDFs online.. if you can buy you probably should tho cuz they’re so good)

Perspective! for Comic Book Artists by David Chelsea (perspective)

Blender Guru’s “Understanding Color” and “Understanding Composition”

Linran’s tutorial (light and color)

Worqx (color)

bumskee’s art (omg I just like looking at it and there’s so much to learn about composition and color)

And never forget: art should be fun! 

PS. Sorry I blabbed so long XD Hope this helps.
