crowncorvus said: I was scrolling through the Surface Pro 2 tag and I saw that you have one and use FireAlpaca. I just got a Pro2 but when I use FA it doesn't pick up pressure sensitivity at all (but I can get some pressure on things like FreshPaint) did you do anything to make Alpaca work?

I had to download a driver for it! Here is a link with the instructions on how to do it^^

Been playing with some gif making. I don’t really know anything about making animation so it’s super sloppy and rough but this has been fun to work on.
The flap on her back isn’t meant to move, haha, I just forgot it and had to draw it back in (and did so very messily)
Drawn in firealpaca and animated in gimp.

I wanted to draw a magical girl last night so, here we are! Not 100% about the outfit but that’s okay. Her name would be Sweetheart and she would transform from her normal girl persona to this one by touching her heart choker. She’d be some sort of empath and use her powers to fight off baddies making people sad/depressed/anxious/angry/and other unpleasant feelings. Yay.

1. Draw how you see yourself.

2. Draw yourself in a cartoon or comic style you enjoy.

3. Draw yourself reflecting how you feel right now.

4. Draw yourself as a mythical creature you like.

5. Draw yourself as a cute little monster of your own creation.

6. Draw yourself emphasizing your most noticeable feature.

7. Draw yourself using a 5 to 6 color palette.

8. Draw yourself as a magical girl/boy.

9. Draw yourself in the style of one of your favorite Tumblr/ DeviantART artists :3

10. Draw yourself as an object head. The object should be one you use often or relate to.

11. Draw a quick portrait of yourself and write a positive message about yourself.

Woop, woop, looking to do some little warm-up doodles. Will be shitty and in sharpie. Awe ye. 

This sounds cute, maybe I’ll give it a try without waiting for asks…

Please either direct your attention to educate the owner of fucktonofanatomyreferences or Tumblr Savior their content. This goes for the other blog they’ve started up in order to avoid the ongoing complaint.

Attention to my followers: While these blogs are contributing to…

Thank. You.

Guys, take note.

I’m reposting this one because I’ve felt very strongly against fucktonofanatomyreferences for a while for stealing tutorials and stock artist’s work without credit, and blatantly being slimy about it.

If this was stolen artwork I feel like people on tumblr would be going crazy, but once it’s anatomy references stolen from hard working stock artists… People practically worship it.

Going to post this on my ref blog too

hi everybody, recently i’ve been seeing a lot of people around the internet talking about experiencing drawing related pain
it feels like the right time to publicly recommend this extremely informative and well-researched minicomic by kriota willberg. i carry a copy with me everywhere and tell friends about it all the time because it is super helpful and has helped me unlearn some bad drawing habits and learn plenty of healthy new ones!
in 60 pages it covers
drawing positions that lessen stress on your muscles
a wide variety of easy exercises (and sample routines)
small lifestyle changes you can make to keep healthy
and when to tell if prevention isn’t enough and you need to see a doctor
you can buy it HERE and HERE. it’s very thorough, the author knows a lot about muscles and the body as well as about the specifics of drawing and it really shows. even if you haven’t experienced drawing pain yet, integrating this stuff into your routine is a good way to start taking preventative measures
stay safe and healthy everyone!

i just bought this and i cant wait for it to arrive. its so important to take care of your body to prevent strain!!

I&#8230;need this.

I did this painting last week and only now got around to posting it&#8217;s listing ^^;

Like the others in the series it&#8217;s a 5x7 acrylic painting on Bristol board and can be bought here for $25!

I did the little header piece for this article! It’s an interesting read if you’re into education practices (which as my husband and some of my friends are teachers/in school to be teachers I am)

Doodling some shadowbeasts. Some try to look like real animals but don&#8217;t do a good job with the details.

Yay! Thanks for the suggestions everyone! So far the list is as follows:

  • giraffe
  • duck (possibly two votes for this, possibly one vote and a laugh?)
  • wolf
  • octo/squid
  • cat
  • tiger
  • fox

I’m also thinking unicorn and lion ^^

Feel free to keep suggesting animals for paintings!
