A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.
The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”
You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.
(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)
I second this about a millionty.
Assassin’s Creed Style Hoodie by The Brother’s Cut
ON SALE for $28 (plus free international shipping!)
But no, seriously- look at everything they have- and it’s all on sale!
Like, I’ve never ordered from them before today, but these seem like quality stuff, and i think style wise could work for a lot of people.
This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.
Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!
Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.
Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.
For all those people that constantly ask “is using a reference cheating?”
No, it’s not. THEY’RE THERE, USE THEM. Using a reference is not tracing, it’s cool.
Every freaking artist in this world and in the past used references to study how the anatomy of a human works, how an apple looks like and so on. You can’t draw immediately out of no where just because you pretend to be an artist. It’s not magic. It’s hard and long work.
And a little reminder: Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Rafael and many more artists in the renaissance used human references from their daily life to make the master pieces which we know now.
…and artist B is probably gonna remember how to draw a bike forever now! In the future they will and get asked “omg how can you draw a bike from nothing?!” and now you know how.
Petra Pan, the Girl who wouldn’t grow up : a masterpost
Hi guys ! I know an old Petra Pan masterpost exists somewhere, but it’s actually not mine, it’s reposted, so if you could just… not reblog it and maybe reblog / like this one instead, it would be super nice and super cool of you :3 ! The other one has like…. 87k of notes so it’s really cool to know that so many of you liked my art, but it’s not even credited so I didn’t know it was so popular before a friend of mine showed it to me ?
Besides, this one really has the full series -with Ms. Flee and the lost girls included- and I would be really happy if they could get the love they deserve !
I love this but am sad that sprite is not called TinkerBILL
I did a little tutorial on how I draw big, wavy hair. This is a personal style guide, so it has things I myself try not to draw and isn’t trying to bash other styles! but in general I’ve found that it helps to have a steady, light hand when drawing things that swoop and curl: the more control you have the better
and the two biggest inspirations over the years have been alphonse mucha and CLAMP
if you need anything clarified/questions totally feel free to ask :>
