Currently an art student, in my third year of school. I'm studying animation and in my down time, I play too many video games. I study both 2D and 3D animation.
Anonymous asked: Your lines are pretty awesome! How did you make them so lively?


Answer:

Aw, shucks. Thank you! I think a lot of it comes from just drawing a lot, but also the understanding of principles like Straights v.s. Curves and line flow. I highly recommend the Drawn to Life book series and Force.

I’ve also started doing this warm-up trick that I learned from my figure drawing professor last semester. Fill a page with circles, lines, squiggles, etc.

Doing these will loosen up your wrist and also practice hand motions for quick drawing. It’s really useful!

I also suggest doing lots of gestures, both from reference and from imagination. Pixelovely is great for that. These are some I did not too long ago quickly from imagination:

Just draw fast and loose and don’t think about it too much. Get those drawing principles ingrained into your head to the point where you do it without thinking about it. Practice, practice, practice!

You should also check out Rad’s how-to blog, because it’s chock full of great stuff on drawing principles.

To summarize:

  • Draw a lot
  • Know your anatomy
  • Learn the principles
  • Draw loose with your whole arm
  • Draw a lot!


I hope that answers your question, anon!

So one of my best friends had a medieval fantasy wedding

congalineofdurin:

at a hella cool castle

image

the groom channeled Thranduil and the Baratheons

image

the bridesmaids were elf maidens

image

the court jester and town crier were there

image

the cakes were gorgeous

image

image

luckily a friar was passing through town who was able to officiate (“mawwaige,” he said, “is what bwings us togevver today”)

image

the bride’s chariot was pulled by the most beautiful creature

image

unfortunately, as with all medieval weddings, there is the dragon problem

Yeah if you haven’t seen “Kung Fu Hustle”, stop whatever you’re doing and go watch that shit.

Cinematic gold.

my favourite movie hands down

It baffles me that I know so many people who flat out dislike this movie.

Well, America?

The last time a bunch of immigrant kids got into our precious country was under another darn liber—oh, yeah.  Reagan.

Funny how the right didn’t scream bloody murder then, isn’t it?  Only why ain’t I laughing?
