"Whatever women do, they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult." - Charlotte Whitton
"Burning ice, biting flame; that is how life began in the age when nothing was. When there was no sand, nor sea, nor cool waves, no earth nor sky nor grass. Only Ginnungagap and the roar of frost and fire within its abyss," Loki murmurs, red eyes fixed on hers. Peppers smiles. He relishes in her heat, the ice in his veins the only reason he has not turned to ash under her.
"Well then," she leans in, her hand burning hot against his flesh, "how about we put the two together and go create a bang?"Photoshop + Topaz + minimal digital painting // Base photo from vishstudio
i got multiple questions about this, so i’ll just answer it on this ask
sorry i kept putting it off for so long…
so… i guess i would think of what kind of sky i would want
i like sunsets, so i’ll draw that
so i start with the very back color; it’s a dull purple
my intent is to go from purple/dark grey->peach/pink
i like to use this fuzzy brush
not sure what to call these… the ‘back’ / ‘dark’ clouds?
i put on random splotches at 40~50% opacity of dark blue around the edges
i’m going to put my light source at the bottom right, so i put a rusty orange color slightly at 10~20% opacity
then i blended the colors before i started to add more colors
the more you blend, the better the picture will look 8)
now i put my pen at around size 8-10 to put in thin areas of peach/gold where the light will hit at around 60% opacity
color it where ever you think it looks good
i like to adjust my colors and edit on sai
on an overlay layer on top of the drawing, i airbrushed so dark blue in at the top left and right
then near the end i like to use the combination of lower brightness and higher contrast
i’ll put a video later since my explanation is horrible most of the time…
sorry i put the drawing sideways… it wouldn’t fit
try these drawings for reference…
maybe use the eyedropper and use colors from these?
hope that helps
this is for the multiple color asks received
A little experiment with resin. They will be made into magnets.
The fish are made from polymer clay and the “water” is resin. The octopuses glow in the dark.
This is a picture of a Goldschmidt toad that has a mutation that caused its eyes to grow inward into its mouth. Therefore,it needs to open its mouth to see. It was found in a garden in Canada.
Hey SAI users
Get your acrylic brush and give it these settings
Just trust me
At first I was like “meh” but then I blended it… damnd. I normally do cel-shading but this is pretty sweet.
oh.my.god. I like this
Reblogging for refs later
omg i like this
Today on this hot piece of shit of a website (no offense), I happened upon a comic about how badly male creatives mishandle female characters. Alright! Sign me up, right?! At least, that was my sentiment before I actually read the damn thing.
One piece of text in particular stood out to me,…
