I forgot what this was from for a moment and thought it was a gif set of Jonathan Crane weeping while he tried to microwave a pinwheel.

FOR 528,491 MINUTES

i’m still thinking about it that’s too long jonathan that’s too long to microwave a pinwheel 

you know i was thinking about this and i realized microwaves usually input by seconds, not by minutes. so he’s actually only microwaving the pinwheel for 8808 minutes and 11 seconds.

which is obviously a way more reasonable amount of time to microwave a pinwheel for come back in six days two hours forty-eight minutes and eleven seconds *ding* your pinwheel is done

I wanted to try out that coloring technique I reblobbed earlier. PRETTY FUN! And allows for a lot more fussing around than my usual method (where the lighting and shadows are only on two layers, an overlay and multiply layer).

Let’s talk about trees - a practical how-to for populating your natural environments and landscapes with trees and plantlife in drawings

I’ve seen a lot of people who really want to do nature/landscape drawings but struggle with filling the space. I’m by no means an authority on this matter, but I thought I’d share my observations and ideas about filling nature shots with cool stuff because I really like drawing them and spend a lot of time doing it.

Some observations:

  • It’s hard to figure out what’s in a natural landscape unless you take time and really make a mental inventory of everything you see. Go explore and memorize
  • Draw from life and references
  • It’s too easy to fall into the habit of making ‘convenient shapes’ with trees and branches. Look for alternatives, examine how abruptly branches grow into different directions and split.
  • Mix and match. I never draw a scientifically exact tree species, I mix the relevant qualities from the kinds of trees I know that fit the image. Combine stuff you’ve seen and your imagination.
  • I try to ‘layer’ the vegetation. A forest looks empty with just trees. Think about the medium and low-height vegetation and bushes and then what’s closest to the ground and ON the ground.
  • Take into account what you want to convey with the vegetation; seasons, is the environment lush or harsh, is it creepy or idyllic?

DONE-ish! I mean, this is just going to be part of the background in ANOTHER picture. One that I have yet to figure out the layout for. BUT HEY, WHATEVER. it’s nice on its own, too.

PROGRESS. manga studio 5 is my fav art program ever, but even it decides to break my heart by crashing mid-save once in a while :’)

tryin’ not to stress out over a phone interview later this week, so here’s a bit of worldbuilding nonsense for one of my ongoing “let’s tinker with this story for an eternity and maybe eventually draw it” projects. 

so here’s an advertisement in progress for a massive system-wide fast food restaurant chain. they’re the worst, but being stuck in a tin can for weeks at a time has a way of making you a lot less picky about what you eat.
