how the hell did you become friends with talented people like ducere

caffinatedstory:

I kidnapped her cat, sold her soul to satan and then sacrificed my own soul to seal the contract.

Coffee,  you’re satan, that doesn’t count.

and mhm anon, we artists are humans, and no special snowflakes, you want to befriend us? go ahead and talk to us. It applies the same principle when it comes to befriending people in general. We connect with some people and we don’t with others, but you can start by talking to us? we don’t want to be intimidating, we’re people. 

Coffee is a great person, and a dear friend, but art had nothing to do with us becoming friends. we’re people that befriended each other like usually people does, If I remember we started talking about something random!. try talking about an interest in common?. She writes fics and I love them, and I draw, and we both love some characters in common, and we were in the hetalia fandom, but as time goes like in any other friendship you find other things to share, that simple.

Also I’m shy as fuck! I give my friends here the credit because I’d live in a shell, but feel free to drop a message, we don’t bite.

and yes I sold my soul to her as well, but oh well… 

doodle dump

Someone asked what I do with the line art

To be honest I find a bit difficult to work with a line art, so I usually work directly over the sketch.

the process can be summarize in:

  1. sketch
  2. once happy with sketch blocking 
    2.5. color your sketch. I work on PS so: go to your sketch layer and lock your transparent pixels  (the first icon there, this can be found in your layers window) then color (in the same layer)
  3. flatten image -flat colors and lineart- (don’t include background)
  4. color over the flattened image -this can be either in the same layer or by adding another layer over it - with a soft brush
  5. render render render render
  6. add details
  7. add filters, additional lights, etc

So this is basically what I do with the ‘line art’ and my coloring process

What do you do with line art when you finish coloring?

once I finish with the color blocking I flatten the image (colored line art included) and start rendering. I will post a tutorial soon, because explaining it with words it’s a bit confusing

Would you consider posting a tutorial on blood sometime? I've always admired how beautifully you do it and I've never been able to achieve that same realism.

sorry for the horribly late answer (I was away)! yes, for sure! soon I will post something about how I draw blood!

sooooo today my blog turns 2 years, It feels like it’s been longer, but oh well! didn’t remember the date but my mail reminded me!
to celebrate! OCs 8D! wohooo, he belongs to cccrystalclear
