A WIP which I’ll never end~
I know it, trust me
Bunny girl Aoi from the project Orenda - this piece is probably after a timeskip. Well, I did it mostly for shading exercise.
Yey, I’ve drawn something after 123456673 years~
Maxine will hear none of your shit
Just an easy trick I learned a few years ago that I thought I’d share. May not work 100% all the time, but works well for simple hand/arm placement.
MY FACE LITERALLY DROPPED THIS IS FUCKING PERFECT
Someone requested a hand tutorial, so I rambled. I didn’t even get to everything I would like to, so here is a part!
Thanks. I’ve been consciously trying to get better at hands for ten years, and I still suck, so I’m always grateful for new tutorials. Someday, one diagram, one line is gonna click it for me. This one’s great.
or at least how i do it LOL 8D
**the download link for SAI is a DIRECT DOWNLOAD, which means it doesn’t open any window/tab, it just downloads SAI directly and instantly into your computer.
1. open SAI, make a new canvas.
2. after you finish drawing your first frame..
this will make it easier to be copied and pasted onto the second frame.
3. it’s time to make the second frame!
4. go back to your first frame, ctrl+a, then ctrl+c. :D
the rationale of the copied+pasted first frame being sandwiched is:
erase on the second layer, draw the outline of your new movements on the top layer, then apply colors for your new movements on the bottom layer.
now you have two frames (i will only make 2 frames because i am lazy *u*):
5. now let’s make this little chichi dance! 8D
it’s time we open PHOTOSCAPE and click on the ANIGIF tab. :3
if you explore the wonders of the gif options (OK WAT), you will discover that you can actually change how fast your gif will move, or resize it.
save your gif
tadaaaa~ now we have a dancing/running/whatev chichi!! :D
OHOHOHO awkward dance is awkward. ;u;
thanks for reading! :*
You can edit the contrast of your sketch before proceeding to the next step. :3
Simply put, the MULTIPLY mode makes your layer see-through, so you are able to put colors under it.
Double click on the layer to rename it. :)
P.S. sorry, i don’t have a 100% sure working link for SAI download. ;n;

while this is mostly about facts, there are a lot of opinions in this tutorial (namely my distrust on several brands marketing strategies, and my opinion that’s better to start with cheap student quality stuff. LOTS of people disagree on that point) as well that you should take as what they are: personal opinions.
this is the result of several years of research on creating a cheap but high quality palette that would help me.
other things to be aware of: pigments are generally more resistant in oil and acrylics than they are in watercolor. but there are a couple of pigments that work well in watercolor but really badly in oil.

!!!! Looks so neat
Haha, thank you. Again, I love the colours on this current theme ;P
It’s really nice to read such message (at least someone to see the stuff I draw)…. But honestly I dont really know when Im going to post new stuff. I have some sketches and WIPs, but nothing from more… “serious” work, unfortnately. It really feels bizarre that-… uhm yeah, me, not drawing. I still have lots of ideas, sometimes I feel inspired to draw something, but I have no motivation left for anything whatsoever. I just really hope that stuff will go better soon in my life, because seriously it’s so mentally and emotionally draining.
I will post some of the very…sketchy sketches soon, I guess, but please dont expect much… It’s really nothing big. Im glad youre one patient pal - its really heartwarming that you still care for my drawings ;3;
After a really long time, finally changed the theme on this blog~
Hey, this was a little while back, but you got a question about about coming up with names for characters once you know the naming conventions of a species/race/culture/etc. I recently found a generator that lets you input guidelines for the names it generates. It’s extremely customizable and it’s become one of my new favorite go to resources. My only complaint would be that it doesn’t have a way to specify omissions, only things you want to include meaning that if you want names that start with any letter but ‘r’, you would have to specify that you want names that start with a, b, c, d, e, and so on all the way through q, and s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z, instead of just saying no r’s. Still, it’s by and far the best name generator I’ve come across and I wanted to share it with all of my fellow science fiction and fantasy writers out there. http://www.rinkworks.com/namegen/
