in other news ive basically mastered that sculptris program:
yeah i think i can confidently say ive reached the pinnacle of digital sculpting
can i say something
I NEED TO SAY SOMETHING IMPORTANT
idk if u guys understand how much better it makes my entire day to receive nice msgs like this so i just want to encourage all of u if you ever have a single good thought about someone even if it’s just two words LET THEM KNOW!! EVEN IF IT’S ANONYMOUSLY!!!!!! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY IT WONT MAKE THEIR DAY OR MAYBE THEIR WEEK OR THEIR MONTH OR POSSIBLY THEIR ENTIRE LIFE JUST DO IT
ya thats coo thanks for asking!!
i guess i will publish this and add that you guys can basically do whatever u want with my drawings i dont really care even if you dont ask me or dont credit me (though of course i always appreciate it when you do)
however if you explicitly state that you drew a thing that i actually drew i will definitely think you are a rancid shitspewing douchenugget ⊙‿⊙
Anatomy proportions and human proportions calculator
holy shit have you guys seen this site???
heres a related gif
so ya i really have no idea what im doing most of the time i just keep going until i got somethin
happy new year
my poses are usually really boring but if i am determined to sneak at least a tiny bit out of my comfort zone then i usually just scribble until something happens:
i just kinda let my hand do whatever until a pose comes to mind then continue scribbling until i know what im going for
it’s not pretty but it’s actually kinda fun and i think it loosens me up a bit
If you hold the r key I think you can rotate it that way. A little compass thing pops up in the middle c:
yeah thats what i was using and i can do it in cs4 just fine but it gives me some sort of opengl error even tho i have opengl enabled but whats weird is that i opened a new canvas and i can rotate that one??? idk so weird whatever tho ill just make sure i can rotate vbefore i start drawin from now on
can u kiss my face?
sure u can
the real question is
do u want to
aaah thank you i don’t feel that bad about my old art i mean i think it’s gross but i know i was doing my best at the time and it makes me happy that people still like it!
but i think (or hope) as an artist it is natural to feel down about your current art sometimes bc i never really feel like i am getting the results i want (then again i am not actually sure what the results i want actually look like) so i like to go back and compare my art now to my old art and it just makes me feel better bc i don’t feel confident enough to say that my art necessarily looks better now (i can only say it looks different)
bUT i know that i have learned so much and even though i always feel very aware of (and frustrated by) my limits as an artist i have definitely surpassed the limits i had in the past (bc i know in my old drawings i was drawing with all the ability i possessed at the time) and looking at my old art reminds me that i will get past the limits i have now and create new limits and ug h that was cheesy i’m sorry goodbye
YOUIR URL IS MY TEXTPOST TAG TAHTS AMAZING
i gotta go study now but i will continuing drawing the requests after my exam tomorrow THAMK YOU FOR RESPONDING TO MY PLEA
anbyody want to request shtity sketches like that y/n maybe idk bc idk who to draw but i really need to getback in the groove wow HOW ARE YOU GUSY DOING???
all colours?? ahaha i don’t know i think that purple is generally the easiest colour to shade with bc like when you are doing skin if it’s got a pink undertone you can kind of paint in some red fleshy tones and sort of gradually slide your way (on the hue slider) to purple for the really dark areas (i do a lot of gradually sliding my way to the funky colour of my choosing while making various stops along the way)
bUT i think more important than what colour you blend into anything is how you use it in the rest of the picture like i mentioned in that other post it might look weird if you randomly use green while shading on the skin but if you sneak green into the hair and the clothes and other places then it starts to look like it fits so that’s why it becomes important that you don’t just shade things with a darker version of the base colour bc then everything will have its own separate palette and it’s not very cohesive which is why when i’m starting i try to paint globs of a colour over the entire picture before i even think about blending or anything
ALso i think that when you are just starting out and you really want to use funky colours you might be tempted to be SUPER FUNKY bc that’s how you are perceiving colourful paintings bUT like i also mentioned a lot of the “unusual” colours you see are actually less vibrant than you think and already very blended and unsaturated versions of the original colour (does that make sense??? i am referring to the part where i said that i eyedrop, apply with lowered opacity, eyedrop, ctrl z, applied with lowered opacity, etc, etc - when you look at the colour itself it actually looks like a mucky unsaturated colour but when painted onto an unsaturated base colour like beige or whatever it stands out and looks a lot more vibrant)
anyYWAYAYAYY idk what else i’m sorry i basically just repeated everything i said before but ya i think it just takes a lot of experimentation and as long as you try to scooch your hue slider at least a little bit away from your base colour you will be on your way to funky town
