Here’s my brush settings again if anyone wants em.
Ok, last youtube tutorial for a while, but I just discovered Will Terrell’s video “How to Draw From Reference”. This is awesome stuff, and totally worth watching, or even listening to while working even if it is only to hear this guy’s laugh. It’s one of the most infectious chuckles I have ever heard.
Besides the laugh, it’s just a great tutorial on how to use reference to sharpen your concept art skills.
Tip for all my student readers: if you’re too lazy to use a bibliography creator like NoodleBib or RefWorks, let Google generate your bibliography entries for you. All you have to do is google the article/book title in Google Scholar, click “cite” at the bottom of the search result, and copy either the MLA, APA, or Chicago cite into your word document.
WHY DID I NOT KNOW THIS UNTIL NOW
have you tried mypaint?
- its free
- its open source
- works for windows, linux and mac
- 90% of the window space is where you draw, no clunky and messed up menus
- supports layers
- the canvas is basically unlimited, the program automatically chooses a dimension for your picture when you save
- easy (but not too limited) brush creation
- overall fucking awesome

Omg reblogging this cuz I always forget
To those anons that have asked me.
*SCREECHES BECAUSE OH GOD THIS IS GREAT*
Since i know i wouldn’t even have the patience to do this unless i made something fancy like this. I’m in an art slump and it’s time to get over it, and if you want, you can do this thing with me.
The point of this isn’t to make a fantastic piece of art every day, it’s to experiment in areas you are uncomfortable with and try out new things.

Phew! Anyway I hope this little project will help. You don’t have to do it for 30 days or anything, you dont even have to do it at all, I just hope it’ll give you a little inspiration to improve!
|Hi Torri! I love your artwork!!!❤️❤️❤️If I may ask,what tips would you give me on improving my anatomy?|
Hey there! Thanks so much for the comment :D Here’s what I can tell ya..
|Haha sorry but if you don't mind, would you show up a small tutorial on how to draw noses and mouths? Sorry. You dont really have to if you dont wanna.|
I wont show you how to do it, I’ll show you how I do it. Please don’t take this tutorial as how to do art, just learn from it as an example and build on the knowledge!
