Overrated

Sometimes the within is piano black

Sliced up - shot down
Everybody bows down
Kill ‘em all - let ‘em fall
God’ll sort ‘em out
Ripped up - zip it up
Really never gave a fuck
Wrecking ball - fuck ‘em all
Never had a doubt
You fake your damnation
You pray for salvation
'Cause your heart is made of stone
You can die and rot alone
I’m not insane
Cut out my heart with this razor blade

ANON WAS ALL LIKE: do you have any tips on drawing heads? AND I WAS ALL LIKE: yeah, kinda. Been actually kind of meaning to put some shit together on art but are you sure you want to ask me about how to draw?

WELL IT’S TOO LATE TO TURN BACK NOW. HOPE YOU READIED YOURSELF BECAUSE IMMA LAY DOWN SOME TRUTHS DOWN. And some other vaguely important whatever.

STEP 1: USE References up the butt

LET ME TELL YOU A REALLY EMBARRASSING THING ABOUT MYSELF: I CAN’T TELL FACIAL FEATURES APART. EVERY TIME I’VE TRIED TO MAKE CHARACTERS WITH UNIQUE FACES I FAIL BECAUSE ALL NOSES LOOK ALIKE, ALL EYES LOOK ALIKE. IT’S GODDAMN SOUL CRUSHING AS AN ARTIST.

SOLUTION? Face claims

What are Face claims? Well in roleplay it’s the actor/model/singer/whatever you choose to represent your character so you can be a lazy fuck and make twenty billion reaction images of them for every situation. What I mean is finding someone who you vaguely want your character to look like and then using them as a base to learn from.

This means you’ll have twenty bajillion pictures of this fucker to use as reference, hopefully from several different angles. And Then you’ll start to learn their facial shapes. Doing this several times and suddenly you’ll start to learn what facial shapes mean and how they differ.

THEN BAM, YOU THINK YOU CAN START DEVIATING FROM YOUR FACE CLAIM TO MAKE YOUR CHARACTER LOOK EXACTLY THE WAY YOU’VE ALWAYS DREAMED THEY WOULD BE. Or not, that’s cool too.

p.s. this does include other people’s characters and the actors who play them in movies or whatever. I just assume original characters because my babies.

2. figure out WTF you’re actually drawing

"But mama, how do you learn someone’s face if you can’t recognize face shapes?" GLAD YOU ASKED. THE AIM OF THE GAME IS TO TRACE THIS FUCKER YOU’VE CHOSEN TO LEARN THEIR FACE.

HERE’S A GREAT TUTORIAL ON THE MATTER: [X]
HOLY TITS HERE’S ANOTHER: [X]

I generally grab a handful of pictures, trace, and then try and reproduce the results on my own. Practice makes perfect and whatever.

3. Draw these vague assholes

Skeletooonsss. I actually don’t have a lot to say here except that I like to be as vague as possible. This stage is more about establishing shape and motion and it doesn’t have to be that accurate either. Once you got what you want, that’s when you start grounding it with measurements and whateverrr

STEP 4: INVASION OF THE VAGUE ASS LINES

MY ACTUAL SKETCHES AREN’T ACTUALLY USUALLY JUST ONE SKETCH. SOMETIMES THERE’S LIKE FIVE VERSIONS. SOMETIMES I MAKE LIKE TEN TO MAKE UP ONE WHOLE SKETCH. SOMETIMES I even end up making sketches while I’m drawing lines. Usually because hands are a pain in the ass and need their own goddamn guide.

SOME TIPS!!

ARE YOU A MESSY ASSHOLE? DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE DIFFERENTIATING THE DETAILS IN YOUR SKETCH? TRY USING CRAZY BRIGHT ASS COLORS. WHY? BECAUSE BLUE AND RED CONTRAST A LOT.

ALSO ALWAYS PUT THE LAYER YOU’RE DRAWING OVER ON LOWER INTENSITIES OF OPACITY. WHY? BECAUSE THAT WAY YOU WILL NEVER MISTAKE YOUR SKETCH LAYER FOR YOUR LINEART LAYER EVER AGAIN!!! Plus it’s easier to see what you’re doing when the sketch is lighter colored.

Step 5: Crippling Self Doubt

[groaning]
[moaning]
[crying]

It’s pretty much around this point where I start to doubt my self worth and wonder why I’m an artist. It hurts, I suck, and as fast as I improve I never get any better. At the end of the day I get little to no reward for it. So why?

Whatever crippling feeling of depression you’re feeling, I have one piece of advice: Finish it anyway.

"But I’m not getting any bett-" Finish it anyway.

"But it looks like cra-" Finish.It.Anyway.

"But I-" FINISH IT ANYWAY CUPCAKE.

THE ONLY WAY TO GET BETTER IS TO FINISH YOUR ART. THE ONLY WAY TO GET FASTER IS TO FINISH YOUR ART. WORK IT, MAKE IT, DO IT, MAKES US, HARDER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER. YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS JUST A CUTE SONG? FUCKING WRONG THAT’S SOME REAL ASS TRUTH RIGHT THERE.

AND IF OVER TIME YOU FIND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING SATISFYING ABOUT YOUR WORK. IF DRAWING IS MAKING YOUR PROGRESSIVELY MORE UPSET AND DAMAGING YOUR MENTAL HEALTH?

Quit. Art is unforgiving and unrewarding. Life’s too short to waste time on something that makes you hate yourself. Find something you actually want to do.

Step 6: fix everything you broke

EVERY GOD DAMN TIME I DRAW SOMETHING SOMETHING GOES TERRIBLY WRONG. EVERY GOD DAMN TIME. NO MATTER HOW CAREFUL I AM. I SUBMIT AND BAM THERE’S PROBLEMS EVERYWHERE.

I pretty much never stop fixing things. I’ll pretty much set my pen down, look at my art, tell myself I’m done, pick up my pen again and keep going. It’s a process. BUT SOMETIMES you just can’t see what’s wrong. SOMETIMES, you’ve been staring at something SO GODDAMN LONG it’s started to become BURNED INTO YOUR GODDAMN RETINA. 

HERE’S SOME HELLA RAD ASS TIPS ON HOW TO DISTURB THE USUAL EYE ROT THAT COMES WITH HOURS OF DRAWING: [X]

ADDING BACK TO THE INFO I WAS TALKING ABOUT IN 2. painting faces from references is actually also a good way to learn facial features too. Since you gotta pay attention to how the shapes of the face reflect light. Just…y’know, use pictures with the same lighting.

Seven: Finishing kind of

I like putting special effects and things in my bigger projects. Like textures and what not. Don’t ask me how to do that. If you actually look at what I do with them I obviously have no idea what I’m doing. It’s a lot of work with layer styles and what not bluh bluh.

MORE IMPORTANTLY THOUGH is face hues. Which PROBABLY should come in with coloring or painting. But I am a lazy arse and just color on the hues in overly and mess with the opacity until it looks kinda alright. The difference is very subtle but it does add a lot.

AND IF YOU DON’T QUITE UNDERSTAND WTH IS GOING ON IN THAT PIC [WHY WOULD YOU?] HERE’S A BETTER REFERENCE ON WHAT COLORS GO WHERE: [X]

Miscellaneous BS

-Ethnicities!! what the hell are they? How do I draw them? NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW!!!! Because we’re so GODDAMN busy being politically correct. I’ve only seen about ONE very vague tutorial on ethnicities. I’M LOST, YOU’LL BE LOST, WE’RE ALL GODDAMN LOST.
i’VE found SOME THINGS that seem to be vaguely consistent but most of the work is up to you.

BUT WHAT ABOUT WOMEN? I don’t know. Don’t ask me. It’s really hard to find women without that typical narrow definition of beauty look. It’s really annoying. Keeps me up at night with tears and…pain…
