Sticky notes and coffee cups.

Welcome   

A blog of ideas.

The most common ding I give to RPG admins looking for a critique or review from me is the use of serif fonts in their themes. I hope this clears up any confusion as to why serif fonts are obnoxious as hell to read and will make me (and other potential applicants) want to click away from your blog without even attempting to read a thing.

The original infographic can be found here.

spaghettiiboobz asked: How did you manage to work out pricing out your commissions as I'm finding it so hard as I work with different Mediums mainly because I like experimenting with shit. When I asked my friend to help me she said I should charge £5 ($8.37) for my finished illustration pieces. But I don't think that'll be helpful for someone expecting a sprog. :I


Answer:

kyleehenke:

Here’s a simple formula everyone should have handy for figuring out commission pricing:

(cost of materials x markup for materials) + (hours of labor x hourly rate) 

This is your BASE PRICE, aka the bare minimum of what you should be charging. Your hourly rate should be absolutely no lower than minimum wage in your area.

myprspctv asked: Love your artwork!! :) as a professional illustrator, would you tell me some advice on developing potrait? im always mess up when it comes to potrait drawing. i really dont know how artist like you can be so precise in developing value for face. Thank you very much :)


Answer:

kasiaslupecka:

Hello  and Thank You :)

The first thing if You want to do portraits is to know anatomy. Start with learning what is under the skin and understand how it affects the face. When You got that covered You must know how face is structured. That will give You the knowledge how to light head. Head is a cube-like object. (yea! NOT sphere!) On face we have other little cube-like object (nose).  

A great exercise is to find photos of a face and draw structure lines over it.

Example:

image

image

You see clearly now? The structure of a nose, where cheeks are, forehead etc.

After doing this You will be able to create the face from a memory using these helping lines.

Like here. This is Michael Hampton exercise:

image

You see how everything fits thanks to the structure lines?

Drawing a face requires TONS of practice. Find thousand photo references and practice.

Understand the anatomy and face structure first. It’s basic.That would be the things I would recommend for everyone who start drawing faces :)

I hope it helps a little!

Took 5 tabs of acid (first time doing it ever) and my friend gave me a bunch of acrylic paint. Painted it with my fingers tripping out of my mind. Also I’m colorblind, and don’t work with abstract work at all (I only have ever done drawing). Thought this was pretty wacky.

Wtf this is amazing I love you

Holy shit

The quality of the color blending is phenomenal. You are an inspiration.
