UM SO BESIDE THAT I've been really, really bad with time management skills as of late and so now there are things I am neglecting. Man, I am such a winner.
I have one last commission to tend to, two art trades to do, an RP to write back on, and a relay comic to partake in; I have my own Isaiah comic that should have been completed in July, and a Jazz to draw for V Day. I'll figure this out eventually.
Sorry, it seems you misunderstood me! That is my bad! I won't be leaving dA forever. I will post finished works as soon as I finish them and I will try to comment as much as I can. But I log on... once a day, twice if dA gets lucky. I use Tumblr for social interactions more than HEY GUYS LOOK AT ME I CAN DRAW. My tumblr is my blog. I will talk to people on Tumblr, no matter who or what the topic. I will talk about my life on tumblr. I post pictures of myself on Tumblr. I use that site to be Internet!social. I won't be leaving dA.
I'm sorry to those of you who registered for a tumblr account to keep up with me, I didn't intend on that in any way! It really is a fun site though, so make the best of it. Thanks for the attention, by the way. That was nice.
I don't even know why this has a DD. I don't. Fuck that. I pretty much moved to tumblr anyway, so you can find me there. I post drawings occasionally.
bluh. Note, the "rules" say I should give ways to improve. I like pretending like I can give advice. I may be harsh, comment at your own caution.
So as I was looking through her gallery to see which devs are my favourite, I realized how much I love her boys. UNNNF Scott and Christian and Patchett Gen2, man. They are terribly adorable. It's pretty amazing how far she's gone since joinging dA. Her characters and pictures are pretty and whimsical, and I like that. I guess as far as improvement goes, I wouldn't mind seeing more poses from her, even in just practice sketches. Play with some ~*dynamics*~ maybe.
(ha ha I don't watch South Park, so I promise I am not biased towards Butters.) I actually like her digital work more, because I think the traditional medium she normally use (coloured pencils?) don't seem to give her colour choices justice, and her digital pieces have a bit more pop. What I really like is how happy her work is, but that's a double edge sword. It's not bad to evoke a certain expression, but don't be afraid of darker colour schemes or mood lighting on the subject itself. Tinting a character's skin is what adds ~*atmosphere*~ or something. But! The style is unique and leaves a nice impression. As far as tips for improvement, I think you could benefit from studying cloth, folds, and wrinkles. Just drape a blanket over a chair or something and observe why and where wrinkles form. Wrinkles, man. They kick my ass so bad.
Oh, Krio. HOW U DOING BB? If there is one artist that damn well knows to shade, (with soft airbrush for that matter) it is this little lady right hurr. I mean, and there's the general shade that shows light, right? NO. NOT FOR HER. This shit is FORM SHADING BITCH, which totally just shows off her fantastic muscle anatomy too (Okay obvs, she uses light shadnig, too, but I really just want to show off her form shading first. I think that's what I like most about her art, actually: her airbrushing really gets in there, and she doesn't just stop where the lineart goes. This is the type of quality that makes fantastic paintings. I can't do this, I'm jealous forever, and that's why I stick to flat colours. |: Buh, improvement? Mmm, it kind of looks like you use a gray on a multiply layer to shade, and your technique is gorgeous, but I guess I would like to see you use a dark purple or something with more hue to shade instead of just gray. (But I'm pretty sure you know this, as that second picture is totally not lacking any hue in its shading)
:thumb191425044: Baaaw Giggles bb. This girl probably has some of the cutest work I've seen in a long time, possibly because of the eyes. It might be the eyes. Also the coloursss! They're always bright and happy and ~*superkawaiidesu*~ and that probably helps a lot in the way of the cute. Uhh, I guess I would suggest playing more with full body anatomy (just drawing small random poses helps. Aim to get the gist, instead of the details) and paying more attention to hands and legs. Use some stock photos for reference! Anyway, it doesn't have anything to do with her art, but she is really an amazing person and so ridiculously selfless. I really think everyone needs to like, at least leave her ten comments of love and sprinkles and rainbows because she is so worth it.
Fff Kippy's art is so professional. I think it's because she has this way with choosing colours that blend really, really well with each other in a way that reminds me of Disney stills. I am also really envious of her poses, which has this weight to them; it's most noticeable in group pictures. I mean, it's just things like remembering to draw the body parts that aren't in the foreground, but those are the little things that make the drawn body in question believable. Buh, critique. I guess I could suggest playing with more colour schemes. Try out extreme saturations, or a limited palette or, what I find to actually be really fun, colour a picture using ONLY the colours of a favourite photo, extracted via eyedropper tool. I think you might have fun with colour challenges. You know, play with mood lighting.
Definitely one of the more unique styles I've chanced upon. Berry's been tuning her watercolour technique quite nicely and it brings something new to look at. The way the colours blend is reeeeally pleasing to the eye, and I am jealous of how she digitally paints. While it hasn't anything to do with her art, I also think her character Rachael is one of the most creative Phantom OC that I've seen in the whole Phandom. Which is saying a lot. I think, if she wanted to improve her skillzzz, she could practice hands and general torso anatomy. Pay attention to palms! You have quite a few bones in there! Also, as a tip I think you should try to stay away from straight (anything that falls between #FFFFFF-#000000) grays in your backgrounds, opting instead for french grays or cool grays.
I know it's kind of weird to compliment someone's lines when it's obviously the pen tool, but that's what I'm going to do for this little lady right here. One thing that always displeased me in the Phandom is when artists left lines just hanging there at one width. That said, I am very pleased with how she thins the lines out as they end. It also looks like that as of late, her facial anatomy has been improving, too. AWESOME. As a critique though, I'm gonna have to recommend you watch how you draw shoulders. You leave them too narrow for the angles you're aspiring towards and you should be seeing more of that arm. Lastly, i highly suggest studying shading a bit more.
While I am on the topic, if you are an artist who use the burn and dodge tools on a big airbrush setting to paint DP characters, this is for you:
A big problem with using the dodge and burn tool is that it gives you the wrong shade. Burn a piece of paper. It will go from an off-white/egg cream to a dark brown to black. This is the general pattern how the burn tool in Photoshop works. Great. Now look at your arm. Your darkest shadows are not black, and lightest skintones don't necessarily hit brown. There's red blood underneath your skin, so there'll most likely be purple undertones. Granted this varies on skintone. The burn tool is a horrible way to learn how to shade. It looks fake.
will edit with commentary later.
I absolutely hate giving out features and it's causing more of a headache than I thought. No mas.
You can click here and write whatever the fuck you want to about me. You can be anonymous and comments will be screened. IP addresses are not logged.
Sometimes I want to tell somebody what I think about them. Really badly. About their art, about their personality, about what comes to mind when I see their username, about all of it. And if it's positive then hey, I just got somebody to like me even more by praising them. But if it's negative, in any sort of way, no matter how much you like a person, then you will just get a big smack full of
"if you don't like it, then just click the back button!" "How would YOU feel if someone said that about you?!" "Get off of my page!" "Nobody asked for your opinion!"
Well yeah, nobody asked me for my opinion, but I sure as hell still have a right to have one. And I sure as hell have the right to express this opinion. How dare you try to strip me of that.
But we have morals. We don't go around biting peoples' heads off because it's rude and politically incorrect. If someone were to ask of your opinion about ~Soandsousername, do you feel the need to hold back? Of course not, you tell them what you want. But then if ~Soandsousername finds out what you said, then suddenly you've become the bad guy. Suddenly you were the one that was "talking about ~Soandsousername behind their back." That's bullshit.
The ironic part is how many deviants claim to "tell you to your face" what they think, when in reality they don't. Don't get me wrong, I'm not attacking those guys. In fact, they're kind of awesome for being nice and by not pointing out your flaws and looking past that. That's because they don't get an opportunity to say what they think without behind the bad guy.
But I digress. I'm not looking for a debate about social morals or whatever, I'm just going to give you guys an opportunity to say whatever you want about me, to me, by clicking here. It can be good, it can be bad, it can be anything your heart desires. It can be about my art, about how you think I'm such a bitch, about how you think I can do better, etc etc. And you won't be the bad guy for saying it.
You can use an anonymous comment, and your IP address will not be logged. The comments will be screened though, because, hey, I'm only human, and one of the harsher comments might make me upset to read; I might need time to get over the butthurt and respond back to you.
Rules The first 10 people who comment on this journal entry will receive a free sketch! In return, however, you must offer 10 free sketches in your own journal just like I am doing. The key word here is "sketch," as in most likely fast. If even I have time to do it then so do you!
1. I won't start drawing for you until you offer 10 free sketches in your own journal. If you've done this in the recent past, just provide proof and that will do. 2. In your comment, include a link to a reference(s) of any character you want me to draw. Adding a short description would help so I don't screw your character over too 8) 3. If you request multiple characters or something complex, I reserve the right to simplify it or to only draw one character.
I tried the livestreaming but it doesn't work, like, at all on my computer, so the next best thing is Youtube! That said, does anyone know a good, reliable screen-recording software that will let me record myself as I do whatever? It doesn't need to record sound, as I don't have a mic or anything, and I play music outside of my computer anyway.
Ethan 01. Favorite colour is blue (though not for the egotistical reasons like Tanyaaaaa). Favorite animals are armadillos. He thinks they are clever. 02. The baby of four. His twin Avery is older by thirteen minutes, eight seconds (Avery lets him know this any chance he gets) Ethan only really connects with the middle sister Alyssa because she's an art fart and ~*toally gets him*~. They have intellectual debates. His eldest sister, Morgan, is ditsy but Ethan doesn't hold this against her and he loves her very much. 03. Turns out to be Tanya and Duke's kids' godfather. He will fight Duke if Duke lets any harm come to those kids. 04. Because lol surprise, he actually really likes kids, too. 05. He will fall sleep if you play with his hair while he lies down. 06. Dated girls. After Molly though he kind of stopped with the whole romance scene, because girls constantly need reassurance and it's just so ughughugh NAGGY to him. His libido is frightening low anyway. Doesn't mind waking up alone, and he doesn't consider himself lonely since he has family and friends. 07. Ethan spoils Tanya with his money, and she lets him. Tanya spoils herself with his money, and he lets her. There's more where that came from. A lot more. 08. Can somehow hold his own in a fight. He isn't raging muscles or anything but being that prim, proper, uptight freak he is, he's taken care of his body well enough that he can handle quite a blow, and dish out a couple as well.
Not like that ever happens. He only has ever "fought" Avery.
OH AND WHO ELSE? A NEW CHALLENGER
01. Mommas boy to the extreeeeeeme. 02. Whenever he's like, "UGH PEOPLE" he likes to secretly climb to rooftops to chill with birdies. He does it more often that you'd think. 03. He gets tired of hating Justin but then Justin's all, "OY MATE KANGAROOS AND KOALAS" and Isaiah remembers how ignorant he thinks Justin is towards everything and gets all angry all over again. 04. Misses Johnny but shhh. He has a reputation to uphold. 05. Not a virgin. "don't do it in the back of a car," he says, but he totally lost his V in a pool. what a trooper Contrary to popular belief he isn't all that nervous about talking to girls. His mood lifts when Estela is around but he doesn't trip up in anxiety. He's pretty smooth~ 06. He wants to open his own zoo when he grows up. 07. Competes in falconry over the holidays. His mom is proud. His dad's like HRMPH 08. Sometimes he's not even sure what he feels about Estela because they spend so little time actually together though. He wants more makeouts with her.
Rules: 1. Post these rules. 2. Post 8 facts about your character. 3. Tag 8 other characters. 4. Post their names with the creators avatars.
1. Padlock heart necklace always. If she ever wants to take it off (sometimes she puts it around a chain, sometimes a thick black ribbon, sometimes she takes it off to bathe etc) she needs Duke to unlock it for her, as it is what holds the necklace together. Duke, while not needing Tanya's necklace, never takes off his key necklace just because he's a sweetheart. NOT EVEN TO BATHE. :I
2. The only academics she is good at is math. I mean, Tanya isn't too bright but she knows how to use them numbers. notbecauseshesagolddiggeroranythingandashopaholic lolyeahjkitsbecauseshesashopaholic/kindofgolddigger
3. Her tattoo was a spontaneous LOL IM DATING AN OLDER TATTOO ARTIST YOU SHOULD GIVE ME A TATTOO EVEN THOUGH IM STILL A MINOR and he had a thing for spades (like meee). She's erased him from her memory but still doesn't care too much for the tat anymore. She's just thankful it isn't too gaudy or anything.
5. Her birfday is July 29 (WHOOPS MISSED IT). She is a leo.
6. Favorite colour is ~*emrald*~ green because she is conceited and her eyes are green (though they are a light lime, not emerald.) Favorite animals are orcha whalesssss.
7. She turns out all right in the end and opens a very successful salon. Her bffl Ethan is a super successful businessman that helps her do the business thing. Her salon goes on to be very high class, very big franchise, and she's excelled so well that she's even been able to work on a couple of Hollywood stars do's.
7.5 lol because of this Duke is a stay at home dad. Tanya brings home all the bacon. .3.
8. Is more disappointed at never meeting Duke's parents than she'd like to admit. She really wanted to hear him talk about how awesome she is to them.
BONUS DUKE FACTS: 1. BABIESBABIESBABIESBABIESBABIES 2. Favorite food is lobsterrrr. 3. BABIESBABIESBABIESBABIESBABIES
fff I couldn't resist. Duke is ~Staries so direct questions towards her. (Though she is a tad MIA ATM
If you are still interested in Duke and Tanya, and have about an hour, there is a large TL;DR post at my livejournal here
01.) I decided to go ahead and try out commissions, however at this time they are closed because I already have an order and I am freaking the fuck out.

02.) I was tagged by Kagstar several times. I will get to that one day.
Justin's is today, in fact. Isaiahs was the 12 (ish?) and Tammy's was... sometime before that. Ha ha I cannot remember anymore.
