Completely dedicated to my schooling homework/lectures at The Art Institute for Animation. This will include anything under the sun about animation/art.
I am just crying tears of happy joy and whispering GAIAONLINE TAKE NOTE

A few followers have recently asked me where I get my textures, etc. So here is a list of my fave places to explore, browse and discover textures and inspiration! x
I have also found that going simply through google images, by typing the kind of texture you’re looking for, and then the word “texture” … i.e. ink textures, cloud texture, paper texture … that you can find some great ones on various sites there.
Hope that helps! Happy photoshopping!
For those who asked, here are better examples of some of the brushes from my new Ultimate Drawing Set for Photoshop. I know the video doesn’t show much, so these images should help a lot!
Please share this with your art friends and happy drawing, everybody!
I know you guys will love me for reblogging this
Little nugget of advice that really changed the way I approached painting. When I started blending like this it was a real turning point for my art quality.
Forgot to add that lighting conditions and other variables in a piece make the hardness you want to choose somewhat variable. Drawing things like skin is more of a hardness range than it is a hard rule.
Eheh…get it? Hard rule? (aaaaaaaaaand i’m done).
Haa thanks, I can’t even put into words how unappealing the overuse of a soft brush is when rendering. There have even been otherwise expertly painted images that were (in my opinion) ruined by that overly soft ‘airbrush’-y look that soft edged brushes give off.
I mean, I just really hate soft edged brush in most cases. It’s definitely the fact that you can’t read any real confidence in the brush strokes of a soft edged brush. It makes it really difficult to nail down any solid shapes or forms in your painting. Weak vagueness both in brush strokes and with shape and form is generally not a good thing when painting.
If I can tell a soft edge brush was used (a lot) in an image, I probably won’t like how it’s been applied.
OH MY GOD THIS
The day I stopped using soft brushes as a blending tool, I felt like I improved more than ever / u\
I don’t really think I’m that good at anatomy (or females) but this is quite a popular request so… I’m making a tutorial, and this is the part to show you what NOT to do with your fellow humans. More coming… eventually.
I suck at breast variations, but I try; see this page for awesome references: x
this person is really fucking good @ sketching anatomy
