Pony Plushie Pattern v2.0 (For those of you looking to make your own plushies!)
ooo! i need to try and make one of these =]
trust issues, get!
though to be fair, i love oatmeal raisin cookies, but there is a special ring of hell for people that pull this kind of prank.
My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).
What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.
MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.
This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.
For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!
Now go draw, babies!
You are a LIFESAVER
Ive been having so much trouble with my tablet driver and this sorted it right out just now.
i have other way to restart my tablet but yeah i’ll try it when my way will not work ;3
Time for an introspective blog post. After wrapping up some work for CollegeHumor, I decided to unwind by just doodling perhaps my favorite OC, Elf.
Historically I’ve had difficulty remaining motivated when working on projects for which I feel that a higher quality of art is required. This is evidenced in the incredibly fast, shamelessly effortless style of some of my most popular comics. Deep down, I die a little bit inside to know that some of the shittiest stuff I’ve ever drawn is my most well-received. This is not meant to sound unappreciative. After all, I don’t think any of us really want orc penis in much higher fidelity.
I recently visited the Bill Watterson exhibit at the cartoon museum on the OSU campus, and it was basically cathartic. As soon as I went home, I found the 10th Anniversary Calvin & Hobbes collection and devoured the essays at the beginning for the first time since I was a child. Therein he mentioned that he does the bare minimum of sketching, preferring that the inking be dynamic and interesting. This inspired me to download a set of brushes for photoshop intended to emulate the sable brushes which Watterson used, and that’s what I’ve been using since.
The reason I feel this is significant enough to warrant a post is because I know that many of you are artists, and tumblr is saturated with illustrators that may have suffered character crises not unlike my own. Using the new brushes and focusing my extra effort on creating expressive and interesting lines instead of uniform and clean lines, I have found a level of passion and enjoyment in the process that I have seldom felt.
Obviously, I am not an expert. I have a long way to go, but I am beginning to feel very comfortable with these tools, whereas I felt awkward and demoralized less than a month ago trying to emulate the cleaner, more uniform look of many digital works. I thought that revelation may be helpful to some of you who are struggling.
As an interesting aside, this is what Elf looked like not too terribly long ago.
On that note, I apologize for my relative absence and promise that more comics are forthcoming. I love you all, except for you, you know who you are.
If any of you are unfamiliar with who that dude is, you can read about him here.
PS It’s tp-mac who I don’t love, fuck that guy.
i am kind-of in this position. i strive for clean lines, but my work always feels lifeless.. i must spend some time thinking on this..
Some wow fanart. Serious shortage of Gnome porn in the world. Gonna rectify that if i can. I was wondering if there wasn’t anywhere like derpibooru for wow or fantasy stuff. I’m sure there is but i wouldn’t know where to start looking. any suggestions?
Domwyn (the succubus) came out really well ^_^
I pray this will suffice.
You must find their leader, or this will occur again sooner than you think!
nightmare moon, >and< fire? aww yiss =]
seriously, though. go check out this tumblr, it’s great, and the artist is is pretty damn good. also, there totaly using some fan-art i gave them as a background. will not lie, that is a >huge< ego boost.
