I AM A TAURUS }:D
youtube is a practically a limitless resource for all kinda poses—just try not to get distracted haha! Most of the time I search different kinds of martial arts on youtube and pause at a pose—here’s a list from Wiki :D
posemaniacs is always great because you can see the underlying musculature
pixelovely I use mostly for expressions but it’s figure drawing is good because it uses real models unlike posemaniacs
Ay thank you so much! And I’m glad you’re enjoying Homestuck so far. c:
Good luck on your lyric comics, they’re totally worth it! Working on this kinda project will help you with a lot of things at once, from storyboarding to developing your style. Take care~
awww U~U I often gravitate to things that make me sad. Fsr those things make me happy, in a way. I hope it’s like that for you?
definitely over 1000 pixels.
The canvas size I’ve been using lately is 2000 x 1200
It was born on November :P 80% stressing and thinking about scenes; 20% actual work
Oops, I probably should’ve put that on the faq as well. After you download it, access your Paint Tool SAI folder, then copy the texture into the ‘brushtex’ subfolder.
You should have a start-sai.exe to actually update the program with new stuff so click that. If not, then here’s a download. Make sure you have start-sai.exe in your Sai folder.
Thanks! I really like them too :DDD
I updated my faq page with the brush settings and a link to the texture if you’re interested in that.
Each panel is a separate, numbered file.
png files are saved in a subfolder.
because otherwise it’d be a mess, hahaha
You can have several panels in a few files though
and I’ve done that for the first two. But when I started getting ambitious with the colors did I start having them separately. :P I will be doing the separate files for different panels from now on.
tears fuel me
I am very happy
Sorry for the late late reply— going through messages and replying to what I can has made me very busy this week c:
Great job for finishing most of the thumbnails—that is a great start! :DDD The best advice I can give you for painting and finishing lyricstucks is to work in large swathes.
The biggest reason that Run to You took so long for me to finish was because in the early days I was working on it, I finished one panel at a time, trying to perfect each one. Most of the panels I’ve done that way I never used in the final product. :B
So basically, do the lyricstucks like a comic—you don’t finish a comic panel individually but rather work on the entire thing with whatever art process you use. Sketch everything, then lineart everything, then plan out the base colors for all the panels, etc. Do feel free to color and finish any panel depending on your mood. There were days where I just didn’t feel like sketching out storyboards, so I worked on coloring, and vice versa. Don’t let this method limit your inspiration.
I’ve done this for all of my lyricstucks at some point and it has helped me tie down the story better and if I ever want changes, they’ll be more consistent to the theme.
Have fun lyricstucking, sugarplumfairy!
Yes Kanaya, that would be fine.
- Make a text post and an audio post in your Drafts
- Upload your lyricstuck panels on the text post
- Upload your music of choice on the audio post
- When you’re done, select all and copy your panels from the text post and paste it onto the audio post
Publish your audio draft and Bam, you’re done. c: Happy lyricstucking.
yes now would you kindly stop shouting eue
Animation stuff :B I really want to be able to be as expressive in the medium as I am with lyricstucks. I’ll have to build a practise schedule on it in addition to my gesture drawing one soon aaah.
