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.

describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away

all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously

Whether it’s your recent improvement, your skills with a certain medium, the way you draw lines, or even your ability to motivate others to draw, I want to know. No self-deprecation allowed or down-talking to yourself.

a pixel process-tutorial as requested by anons! please click the images to read!

and here is the finished product! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

(character is Sayaka Maizono from Dangan Ronpa, credit me if you use please!)

Software used : Paint Tool SAI
Brush : Binary / Pixel brush set to 1 px
Time : 2 hours

now let’s go over some tips of pixel art!

  • keep your canvas size between 0 - 400 px. it’s easier to see the lines more clearer in SAI.
  • look at the above. this is very important. do NOT make ‘chunky lines’ when doing pixel art. it doesn’t look very good when you do. you always want to have pixel lineart that is crisp and doesn’t overlap. 
  • now look at the color scheme. see how it all blends well? nothing is uber bright? yeah, you want to have a scheme like that. don’t use super bright colors unless you wanna stress someone’s eyes. try going midtone. do not go super bright. dim your color choices (literally. make em more dull looking).
  • see that above affect? it’s called dithering. a lot of RPGMaker chip/charsets use this effect. here’s how you can do it.

and that’s all i have to say! thank you for readin’! (^ v ^)b

Favorite Watercolor Brushes- 2 versatile, 3 specialty
My favorite watercolor brush and 4 others that come in handy. About 95% of the time I use a #10 round sable (far left), I use this for sketchbook work and painting from the figure. Synthetics are good for beginners and experienced artists because they are more durable and forgiving in regards to care and handling, they are also cheaper so replacing them is more affordable. 1” flat brushes are very versatile, they are good for bigger washes and the corners can be used for more detail. Again, synthetics are very good.I use the 1/2” flat for architectural stuff the 1” is too big for, like small windows.
2nd from the right is a striper brush, which is great for stripes and some calligraphic line, but not much else.
000 Round - best used sparingly for small important details, signatures and the like.
