This is an art blog

I'm definitely going to post any resources I run into that will help not only me, but anyone following this blog along the way. Expect tutorials, articles, links and maybe a few compromising photographs; fan-art, fan-fiction, doujinshi and whatever the hell else falls into tthe category of "not safe for work" as well. 

This is pretty much a tame porn blog.

I got this program from Typette a long time ago when she had it on her Livejournal and I’ve always used it since. Just reposting since the last url broke you can download it here: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/deskpins.html
But as you can see it’s a dream to paint studies with. It keeps whatever window you pin up as the topmost window.

Had a little discussion with polyleisle about blacked out shadows and etc.

I thought I might share my thoughts on it.

Allright kiddies, you know how you love digital art but just wish there was a way to get that “drawn with a pencil” look? WELL NOW THERE IS! INTRODUCING TO YOU TODAY IS CERULEANBOXERS WITH HER ATTEMPT AT MAKING A PENCIL TOOL IN SAI.
Above, you can see what she did to achieve the pencil look you can see in her doodle page here 

Anyway this is just a glorified “HEY TUMBLR SAI USERS, PUT YOUR BLANK TOOL TO THESE SETTINGS”I just know I’ve seen a few people who are like “dang how do I make my digital art look like it was done with a pencil?” and I was bored so I decided to experiment until I figured it out!

HOLY FREE ART PROGRAMS BATMAN

I’ve had this list sitting around for a while (in case I ever want to try something new) and I thought I’d share it, because why the hell not, everybody loves free stuff. I’ve only used a couple, so for all I know these could be complete shit. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW, RIGHT?

*= available for both windows and mac os

GIMP * - Does a lot of the same stuff as Photoshop.

FireAlpaca * - Similar to Paint Tool Sai, so it’s a good alternative for Mac users.

Autodesk Sketchbook Copic Edition * - Simulates the look of copic markers.

MyPaint * - Basic stuff, nothing fancy.

Pinta * - Drawing program modeled after paint.NET.

Inkscape * - Vector/drawing program meant to be similar to Illustrator.

ArtRage * - Digital painting program; you can get the trimmed down version for free or buy the full version with more features.

Sumo Paint * - In-browser drawing app.

DAZ Studio * - Some sort of 3D model poser thing.

Pencil * - Software for animating.

SketchUp * - Tool for making 3D models. Looks handy for stuff like architectural drawings.

Blender * - Pretty popular 3D software.

escape motions * - Some browser apps, fun to fiddle with when you’re bored (the fluid fire simulation is pretty cool imo).

Twistedbrush (Pixarra) - Seems to be meant for replicating the look of traditional media.

Pixia/Phierha - A popular program in Japan, according to the website.

Krita - This was originally made for Linux and it looks like the developers haven’t ironed out all of the kinks in the Windows installer.

Artweaver - Another trimmed down free thing if you don’t want to buy the full program.

paint.NET - Pretty basic kit, probably good for simple stuff.

Project Dogwaffle - I’m not sure what this one is all about because I couldn’t stop laughing at the terrible website.

Speedy Painter - Lightweight digital painting program.

mtPaint - Originally made for pixel art; simple enough to run on older computers.

Chasys Draw IES - Supposed to be some sort of drawing+image editor thing.

PaintRibbon - Seems to be another plain old basic image editor.

DrawPlus - Looks like it’s made for graphic design and vector stuff.

SmoothDraw - I’m guessing this is a basic thing for people who don’t want to bother with complicated stuff.

I can and will absolutely vouch for GIMP (2.6), FireAlpaca, Autodesk Copic Edition, MyPaint, and Pencil (now named Pencil2D)

Those are all the programs I use for all of my art and animations.

There’s also a free 3D software called Wings3D if you are of the polygonal persuasion
