How cute is this!!! Short film: Tamara
Animation is one of the things I want to be able to do eventually. Even if it means going back to school. This is a great story and the background and cgi details are superb.

Thanks E$.

I falsely keep thinking that the more pens and markers that I acquire the more likely I will be able to create a masterpiece. It’s not about what you have, but about what you do with what you have. #drawing #wisdom #lessismore

STOP. SCROLLING. NOWWWWWWWWW.
The eraser on top is the Paper Mate Union Eraser.
I thought it wouldn’t work much, but… It erases ink.
And NOT JUST ballpoint pen ink, India Ink too.
If you make a mistake, this eraser can erase the whole thing and leave no trace AT ALL, although you do need to erase quite vigorously.
It’s only about 1-2 dollars.

The eraser pencil on the bottom is just that. It is an eraser that you can SHARPEN like a regular pencil. The brush on top is so that you don’t smear your art when you try to push off eraser crumbs. You sweep them off with the brush.
Even if you’re not an artist, signal boost please?
It’s a very cheap way to get around life.

WE CAN ALL STOP INVENTING EVERYTHING NOW NO MORE SCIENCE HAS GONE FAR ENOUGH I CAN DIE A HAPPY DEATH WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THIS IS IN EXISTENCE

I just started making some references for myself, but got carried away hahah… ha :’D

I figured I’d share. I’m hoping to make a series of these things for all the drawing bits that give me trouble: woman torsos, hands, wings, different body types, etc.

I hope you also find them useful!

Please Reblog! Photoshop Freebie!

I’m proud to present the ‘Mr. Natural’ brush. This tool is one of my favorite new inking options - it has a little bit of everything you need: some texture, some natural irregularities, great thick to thin transitions, and a really nice flow. I hope you enjoy it! I am offering this brush for FREE for a limited time as a thank you to all of you for supporting my brush sets. Please be sure and check out the full sets, as well - I promise you will not find better brushes for the money anywhere!

As always, Photoshop CS5 or higher is required for this brush to perform correctly. And … read the loading instructions, please! This is a .tpl file, NOT an .abr file. Thank you.

Good things should be shared.
