Hi! I’ve updated my brush pack, and have compiled the stuff into a handy dandy sheet. Click on the image to grab the expanded version, and grab my brush pack here.

(the one you’re interested in is called ‘iS_antialiased’)

The sources of several of these brushes are as follows:
Algenpfleger , Houston Sharp, Paul Scott (from the ‘Using Reference Imaginatively’ pack)

Cheers!

This is crazy….

Tis not crazy, Disney would have the voice actors act out a scene so that the artist could use it as a reference. In fact the audio for the Mad Hatter is all taken from this scene. 

So when someone tells you that “referencing is cheating”, just know that they’re lying. 

Nearly all of the best artists reference!

I have no patience for people who try to cut down anyone’s artwork, writing or photography by implying that publishing it online diminishes the value of the work. “you’re only doing that so you can post it on tumblr” good. you’re creating art, documenting your life through photography, writing down your thoughts. posting something online doesn’t decrease its value in any way and don’t let anyone shame you into thinking otherwise

caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

yep
here’s a statue of Augustus

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 


i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)
