Have you ever heard of the zero escape series? Probably not, and that’s a problem. Bear with me here, read this post you won’t regret it, I’m going to change your life for $5.

Hi! Thank you so much, I’m very glad you like my stuff <3 I’m sorry to admit that… no. I’ve been asked various times a question like this, but I’m afraid I still don’t really know how I could explain how I work. The closest I can come to an explanation is something like “oh no, man, how am going to do the thing I have in mind? Good lord, I can’t, isn’t it? I never will. So uh, I could just try…? Ok. Ok. Let’s try like th-ugh, no. Wait, I could try to just- ahahah, are you kidding me? No. How about I-? Nah. Please. You’re embarrassing yourself, pal”. I just… try and fail until I can no longer stand the sight of that file anymore. So I save it in png and post it. Then I cry myself to sleep. Or force myself to start to do actual work. 

Maybe it could help that I’m now using a Mac and Macs have nice screens? Maybe I can be more helpful if you could point me out a particular thing you like about my stuff. I’ll do my best, promise :°D

Also, my style changes a bit depending on what I’m working on (and I believe this is pretty normal?). I’m having lots of fun drawing so much AH-related artworks because it is giving me the chance to be very “graphic”. Like, “graphic design”-graphic. I don’t know if this makes any sense. But it’s very liberating, I love graphic design and it suits AH-related fanarts pretty well! :°D

XD lol.
Maybe if I reword a bit? Technique such as the ‘human body’. You make it seem effortless ^_^;; if that term can be used. I’m more of a doodler that goes for exaggerated extremities.

Ah, ok then, this is very simple to explain, even for me. My friend, let me introduce you to THE AMAZING WORLD OF REFERENCES. LOTS OF THEM. THERE IS NO LIMIT. LOOK FOR REFERENCES LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW.

It should be obvious, but I realize it isn’t, not even a bit. But seriously, copying from references is the only way to learn. And I’ve still so much to learn, my god, the amount of things I’ve still to learn makes me want to cry. And mind you, copying from references isn’t cheating: everyone needs to first LEARN. Educate yourself is paramount. Also, if you KNOW how to handle anatomy, then you can elaborate your own style. Exaggerated anatomy isn’t a crime, many artists are incredibly good, their stuff looks MARVELLOUS, even if maybe, technically speaking, their anatomies are not that “right”. But most of the times, if it looks “right” even if exaggerated, it’s because they actually know their shit. They perfectly know the basis and they evolved from them. 

As for faces (since someone asked me how I usually draw them) … my style is pretty realistic and I’m not afraid to admit that I use lots of references. Even because, come on, if you are portraying someone in particular you actually need to know how their faces are made XD

Maybe this can be useful for you as well. Do schemes, take notes. Do everything you can to learn the physiognomy of the face you’re about to draw.

… also, I can assure you that NOTHING I do is effortless for me XD I struggle on every fucking thing I try to do XD

While these houses are beautiful, I would take up the chance to live in exactly zero of them.

oh good lord, the last one.

If I had unlimited funds and a good contractor, I would restore #3 to its former glory fast enough to give you whiplash.

Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?

This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.

When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.

WHAT!!?!?!?!?

My entry for “let’s draw those goofs at least once a week" :°D And since I’m a horrible person, I kind of revamped a drawing that I used for the tweetout posters? I’m sorry, this is probably cheating é7è

Today is the anniversary of the publication of the first comic strip of Superman in Italy (July 2 1939). Because of the strict rules of “Italianization” of every foreign name, issued by the Fascist government of Benito Mussolini, Superman was “Italianized” in "Ciclone, l’uomo d’acciaio" (Cyclone, The Steel Man). He later changed his name in “L’uomo d’acciaio” (The Steel Man) and “Nembo Kid” in the 50s, in despite of the fall of Fascism in 1945. The Italian publishers and cartoonists (several adventures of the superhero were drawn also in Italy) deleted the famous letter “S” from his costume, without inserting a “N” (Nembo Kid) in the yellow shields on his chest and the red cape.

It is said that the name Nembo Kid (after the fascism) was for the sole purpose of avoiding copyrights. 

We are great at avoiding copyrights, after all.
