AND THAT IS HOW YOU USE AN EFFECTS PEDAL

I was gaping the entire song this is insane

If I had a dollar for every time a musician made me feel like I’ve done nothing with my life, I’d be filthy, FILTHY rich.

Wow. Wooooooooooooooooooooooow. BLESS.

A girl at my old school did the same thing as this and holy shit I was in love with her all up through senior year

Pixars 22 Rules of Story Telling

9 is worth the price of admission, holy crap.

This is genius. So many great writing tips!

And this is why Pixar is a master in their field.

Why do I feel so weird reblogging this… this is the weekend dammit!  Anyway, great advice.

Pixar you have no idea how much this actually helps me.

Tuesday Tips - SHORTHANDSIt’s crucial to find ways to draw characters clearly and fast when storyboarding. Line mileage alone can become an impossible mountain to climb if you don’t simplify the way you draw characters. Leave all details aside and find the essence of a character. Shorthands are the gesture drawings of storyboarding. Specific characters have specific attributes that make them stand out. Sometimes it’s just the way they stand. Sometimes their hairstyle is unconventional. Find what’s key about a character and get rid of what’s common.Norm

Tuesday Tips - FOLDSMore on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.Norm

Yeh, finally a proper fanart for the webcomic, The Property of Hate by modmad!
Look at how canon their personalities are!  It’s not like I totally screw that up! hahahahahahhahaaaa…………….
Anyways, this scene is bound to happen in the comic sooner or later, totally. It’ll be like, “YAY WACKY NUTTY FRIENDSHIP ADVENTURE” then “NO IT’S NOT CANON STOP” then “WHAAAAAAAaaaaaa noooooo” and lastly “GTFO YOU’RE FIRED FROM THIS FANDOM CLUB OF COOL KIDS”.

I need a time-out, now I’m paranoid of putting in the tags for this, in fear that modmad might see this,
WHY YES I DID
ALSO I READ ALL YOUR TAGS

Tuesday tips — Costume Design 101.

Costume design is a very important part of character design.  It tells you a whole lot about your character; ie. age, personality, what she/he likes, time period, strength, … etc.  It supposed to enhance a character’s personality.  

Here are my process in tackling costume design.

1.  Find a good reference.  Inspiration is key!

2.  Look for a good silhouette that is recognizable and different from other characters.

3.  Pick one silhouette and find smaller shape within.  Do tons of variation and have fun.

4.  Color variation.  Use variation the same color combination for all the design.  Keep it simple!

5.  Finish up and have fun.  It will also a good idea to think of texture and material.
