what is shading and drawing hands

For a second, he had forgotten she was even there. Everything she had said came rushing back now. Danny looked away, muttering, “Are you going to yell at me and storm off, too? If so, now’s your chance.”

Morosely, Danny slumped into the floor next to one of the supply shelves, ignoring the grime caked on the floor of what was a surprisingly filthy cleaning closet. He propped his elbows against his knees, hung his head, and clasped his hands over the back of his neck.

Sam crouched down across from him. “I’m not going to yell at you.”

Danny raised his head. “You’re not?”

The girl smiled wryly. “That would feel too much like kicking a puppy.”

Excerpt from Treading Water by The Full Catastrophe

Decided to try my hand with more moody shading and such. A-lister Sam is SO much fun to draw.

Yuri snorted, trying to keep from laughing. Otabek looked up from his book curiously.
“What’s so funny?” He asked.
It took Yuri far longer than it should’ve to respond, breaking out into full on laughter. He rolled closer to Otabek, the comfort of the bed suddenly forgotten.
“I found fan art,” Yuri replied in between giggles.
“You. But you’re completely naked.”
Otabek’s face turned approximately six shades of red. “W- what?!”
“…I’m responding to it.”
“What are you saying?” Otabek made a grab for the phone in his boyfriend’s hand, but Yuri was quick to dodge.
“I’m only pointing out the inaccuracies!” He insisted. He hummed thoughtfully, examining the drawing. He began typing, speaking every word as he went, “Good, but inaccurate. His six-pack is not that defined, neither is his v-line.”
Otabek looked as if he were about to self destruct. Yuri reveled in this newfound side of the older boy. He smirked mischievously before adding, “Also, his dick is bigger-”
This time, the Kazakh boy managed to grab the phone, but it was too late. The damage had already been done.
“Oops,” Yuri said in a way that definitely held no apologetic tones. Otabek groaned, embarrassed beyond belief. “I’m sorry, Beka, but they needed these details for future drawings.”
“How would you feel if you found a naked drawing of you online?” Otabek challenged.
“How would you?” Yuri shot back defiantly.
The older boy had no idea how to respond. He was finished.

i still have no idea what i was intending with this picture but its somehow one of my favourite things ive drawn

Yes, I of all people drew shipping art, but it’s of like, one of maybe 3 ships that I like, Midlink! :D
Also, I needed practice drawing hands and what better way to do so?
I also tried a new shading technique and I love it! <3
I know that the bg is lacking but I couldn’t think of anything else

I can’t believe I have to make a shipping tag…

anonymous asked:

what do you draw with? like i know paint tool sai but do you use a tablet? if you do do you use a tablet pen or your hand??

i draw with my hand! i have a touch screen laptop, and i usually color/shade/whatever in sai

i prefer using an app on my phone for lineart because it’s cleaner and less janky

I realized I had never shown the “final” drawing??
This is from November 2015!!
I only shared WIPs(1) before(2) and totally forgot about it.. I can’t even explain lol.

It’s been only 2 months but I really see some spots I’M ITCHING to redraw/overpaint, but I tend to overdo things, so I said to myself - “NOPE TALLI, NOT THIS TIME, you had your chance, this drawing is /done/!”


Last night my mom called me brave because I took the medication that’s been making me nauseous all week. As I was thinking about that comment, I realized that it was probably more stupidity than bravery–and then because Gravity Falls is on my mind a lot, I wondered if maybe that’s how Stan looks at his actions–stupid decisions people mistake for bravery. So I decided to turn it into a comic that really looks awful on here but reads pretty nicely on my giant comic papers. Enjoy.


So a while back I saw this little music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ManZPk6CSIs
Even though I have no idea what the cartoon its promoting is about, gahh those two little monster things are so cute ;v; PLUS the song is catchy as hell (and has some very subtle vorish undertones - just look up the english translation and don’t tell me it conjures up images of a pred singing to a would-be prey~?)

So I HAD to try my hand at drawing the blue fox/wolf….thing, Eerie~ Also decided to make his tongue all glowwy because why not~?

I had fun with shading this! T'was fun practice especially for the lighting on the tongue. Also wooo ambient night sky! <3


Strawberries. Yachi Hitoka handed him a water bottle like any other practice. But in the light flit of her hair, Tsukishima Kei noted something was undoubtedly different. Her hair smells like strawberries.

He wasn’t sure why he began to notice other things after that, but he did. 

Her star clips alternated with different shades of blue. The indigo one looks best. 

Her laughter was particularly generous to dumbasses. Rolling thunder is not that funny Yachi sto– … Well… Do what you want.

Her forehead becomes flushed when she starts to get sick. Go home and sleep, idiot. Don’t even think about tutoring the two dumbasses tonight. 

Her eyes sparkle with hints of topaz in the light. Why do you look surprised when I just asked you how your test went? 

Her hands had a single callous on the side of her right middle finger from writing and drawing. I can probably fit my fist around them hah they look so soft and tiny. Tiny human.

Her nose crinkles when she’s trying to remember a volleyball term.
Her bento always has some form of egg and is half filled with vegetables.
Her left foot twirls in circles when she asks one of the senpais for help.
Her drink of choice is grape juice.
Her teeth grind when she’s internally wishing for something.
Her nails are painted with clear nail polish.
Her white shoes are cleaned so often they’re whiter than his teeth.
Her lips are never chapped even though she never seems to put on chapstick like most of his other classmates.
Her smile…shines.

He wasn’t sure why he began thinking of asking her out, but he did.

SPN boyfriends doing your makeup

Dean: Ruins your makeup brushes by aggressively stabbing your powders and eyeshadows and then wonders why you look like a cake-face. Consistently says “what the fuck is this god damn bullshit who the fuck invented highlighter, what the fuck is this, is this the right shade? where does this go?”  Constantly swears as things go wrong and tries to wipe the mascara smears off your nose and eyelids with his spit. Accidentally stabs you in the eye with eyeliner. Finally settles with drawing a huge red zig-zag on your face and declaring a David Bowie masterpiece. 

Sam: Actually tries to make things look nice and apologizes profusely when he totally pours out half of your foundation onto his hand. Completely over draws your eyebrows and laughs the whole time, saying how beautiful you look and he thinks you should really let him do this everyday so he can practice for when you have a daughter together. He applies too much lipstick and lets you kiss him so he can look like a clown too. 

Castiel: Does a flawless application of everything, stating it was one of the things he learned from his pseudo-father bonding time with Claire. 

Crowley: Makes one of his servant demons do it then kills them when they make you look like a total fool. Uses fifty makeup wipes to clean your face. Grumbles about how good help is so hard to find as he flips through a Cosmopolitan magazine to try and figure out how to make his Queen look like a bad ass bitch from hell.
