As an artist, you’ll have to draw turned heads countless times. But when the head is turned, drawing the far eye poses a special challenge. This is because we must foreshorten that eye more than we’re used to, and because we’re tempted to shape it like the near eye, which is less foreshortened. Therefore, it’s useful to practice drawing the far eye by itself, without the near eye to throw you off. Print these sheets, draw the eyes, and you’ll save yourself great difficulty later.
Note that all of these eyes are facing our left. You’ll need to practice right-facing eyes as well, so flop the sheets in Photoshop, print them again, and draw those also.
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 shillouette that is recognizable and different from other characters.
3. Pick one shillouette 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.
Welcome to the next part of The Serendipity Gospels!
Act Three, Chapter One will take place through Tumblr, have a three-chapter format and be semi-interactive with a commands prompt at various points. Once a chapter is done, it will then be uploaded to AO3. The warnings for Serendipity Gospels in general still apply, and due to the nature of the way we’re doing this act, visual eye injury warnings (though nothing graphic) can be observed.
The format has been changed experimentally due to time constraints on the part of both the artist and the author; we preferred to make an attempt to get this story finished rather than leave it unwritten, and we’d like to take advantage of the gigapause to do so. Thank you for bearing with us, and moreover, thank you for supporting this fic over the two years we’ve been writing it.
Updates on the story will begin this weekend.
Hey guys, we are doing a thing. It’s going to be pretty neat. Yes.
onewayworld asked: Oh my gosh, sorry! More proof that I really should be in bed by now. @@ In that case, adult!John talking to a modern!Dolorosa on a park bench while petstuck!Vriska (tries?) to play with a petstuck!Signless for paperseverywhere? I barely share anything in common with them at all, but I do follow them and they make very nice things. Those four characters are the ones I associate with them the most, so a cute scene for them would be nice. Again, sorry for the mishap!
ABORT ABORT ABORT THE MISSION HAS GONE TERRIBLY WRONG
This is technically fanart for the LoopTroll universe, which is a name I just made up for the world in which SaccharineSylph’s Loophole and CeruleanCynic’s Unwanted Free Ugly Troll take place. But mostly Loophole, because Vriska and John.
but at its heart of course it is a gift for the wonderful paperseverywhere who deserves all the love and also all the art
