Okay so I followed this video about foreshortening and…
Sycra. I love you so much for making this video.
YOU GOTTA BE FUCKING SHITTING ME
sometimes it occurs to you that you’re not that good at drawing the things you actually like
this is one of those sometimes
Filia and Samson from Skullgirls!
The first one. With references.
Edit: some people have been asking me if i have any more tutorials, which is why i’m reblogging this again :D;;. Hope you guys don’t mind ^^;
I’m “Filing” this away for later….GET IT?! LIKE FINGERSNAILS?! HAHAHAHA
NEW AVAILABLE ART PROGRAM
It seems to be a mix between SAI and photoshop, simplified. It even has a stabalizer that works even with the mouse.
Best of all, it’s free, and works for both Mac and Windows.
To give it a try, head right on down to http://firealpaca.com/
Reblogging for artsy people that follow me. Also a lovely name for a program.
Holy crap the pen tool is so smooth
Reblogging so I don’t lose this again.
List of tutorials that helped me with environmental painting:
“How to make your own Perspective Grid in PS” <—- this one is the best thing I’ve ever discovered. Srsly CHECK IT OOOOUUUUT!
Snuffen’s Background Tutorial P1More or less ALL tutorials by Griffsnuff is awesome, so make sure to check out the rest of them!
More or less ALL tutorials made by AquaSixio!
List of youtube channels that also helped and inspired me:
FZDSCHOOL - More or less one of the most known concept art-related resources I know on youtube. It’s great to sit and draw and just listen to the talking.
SinixDesign- This guy is also great! He has some design workshops ever now and then where the viewers can send in their stuff for critique! very encouraging and inspiring!
moatddtutorials- This guy is more into drawing than painting, and has a more cartoony style. He has interesting methods when it comes to perspective. And he also challenge himself in some of his videos (the engine block video is a great example of this)
foxOrian- Also known here on dA for his awesome perspective and composition tutorials. He has a youtube channel where he posts some videos that might be interesting as well.
I got a few people asking about the little “exercises” I give myself to do when I need to warm up, break out of art block, or just have fun doodling… so here’s one for you guys to try! It’s basically like that color scheme meme that was floating around, except you make your own color schemes.
THIS IS SUCH A GOOD IDEA
