if art isnt treating you right

sketchinthoughts:

- don’t erase the stuff you’ve already drawn, just make the layer invisible. if you’re anything like me then deleting in process sketches has a very light subconscious negative effect on how the drawing is turning out.

- don’t draw your sketches on white, especially if your brush is black. white is hard to draw on. change it to grey. trust me on this.

- if a sketch is almost there but not quite try mirroring it horizontally. the issues will be way easier to spot.

-if inking isnt your thing but you want outlines just paint your color over the sketch lines, then do the ink lines last.

- if you have lots of ideas but no patience with details like myself take to tiny tiny thumbnails. like im talking barely bigger than your thumb. it forces you to look at the whole picture and not just the details.

- if tiny doesnt work/you like detailing go opposite. draw REALLY huge and work your way through.

Just in case you forget this exists.

It exists.

With those “when you want to design a character but you don’t know color theory” posts flying around I thought this would be relevant again.

SLAMs THE REBLOG BUTTON

there’s also Coolors website that gives you randomized palettes!

Don’t forget ColourLovers, either! It’s a social media-esque site where you can browse tons of palettes and share your own.

You can browse the most popular ones or search for certain colors, themes, and even specific hex codes!

When you find one you like, you can download a wallpaper swatch of it and also select the specific colors it uses to look at more palettes that use those same ones.

ColourLovers is my go-to for when I’m having trouble coming up with a color scheme! It’s also been around for over a decade, so there’s plenty to browse through.

tips for artists and writers who cant figure out whats “missing”

  • rooms should be messy to some degree, lived in, and should have personality, even a clean persons room shows they lived there
  • clothes shouldnt look recently bought unless thats part of the story
  • no space is empty
  • no part of the body is perfect
  • quirks show in accessories, what pocket does the phone go in, headphones or earbuds, how are shoes laced
  • when was an item bought? not every item is going to be up to date and trendy. age things appropriately
  • skin picking, nail fidgeting, bruises, chapped lips
  • quality of make up/self care
  • waistline of pants/shorts/skirts
  • are nails taken care of? chewed? polished? etc
  • damage to objects like helmets, phone, jeans
  • frizzy, loose hairs
  • SEAMS IN CLOTHES
  • signs of failed ambitions/projects. did they try to start using a fitness bracelet or keep succulents? 
  • everyday allergies

Phoneme Chart by TheEndIsNearUs


This is a nice chart!
Lipsync is one of my not-so-secret passions. I also hate front mouths. They’re harder to inbetween, I find, and they’re not used nearly as frequently. Here’s some ¾ mouths I made.

image

These are the basic shapes I was taught, and I use. Standard lipsync shapes;; 

You have your closed mouth to open, to clenched teeth, to oohs, and your (often optional) F, L, and TH mouths.



Tips!

  • Your top teeth don’t move;  I mean, stylistically it happens sometimes (Gravity falls does it fairly well, as much as I haaaaate that), but your lipsync will prolly look better if they don’t.

  • My clenched teeth (SH) mouth is always a bit wider than my biggest AH mouth. It adds variation and helps your shapes blend more nicely. Conversely, my biggest AH mouth is narrower than my SH mouth and my closed (M) mouth.
  • My L mouth is a tiny bit more closed than my biggest AH, and not as closed as my second biggest AH. It fits between them nicely so that if you have to go from an L to an AH mouth, like you would for the word “Like” or “Love”, it doesn’t pop or look weird.

  • My R and oo mouths move forward on the face a bit, it adds dimension, and if you leave it all in the same place and have the mouth just shrink into a circle it miiiight look weird.



Aaaaand I think that’s it?  Never go from a SH mouth to a TH mouth, it’ll pop and look weird…uhhh;  

Also! It’s alright to skip some shapes;;

So below is a lipsync I made using the above shapes;

image

It’s clear what they’re saying, the mouth is moving nicely, but there’s only one problem. Veeeery rarely do they give you enough time to use all the mouths you want to make it move nice. Voice actors talk fast to fit everything in and holycrap do we hate  love them for it.

So here’s a fast one.

image

Those two gifs should start at the same time, and notice that the second one stops while the first one is still saying “doing”.

I not only cut out the mouth between the biggest AH and the clenched teeth, but I combined the word “Are you” into, like, 3 shapes. I also trimmed some inbetweens overall. The lipsync still reads, though! You can still tell what they’re saying even without audio (which would help it a bit, haha~)

Cutting out that stuff ended the lipsync a whole 14 frames sooner (more than half a second!). It doesn’t sound like much, but with 24 frames per second and dialogue moving at the speed of light, you don’t have time to dilly dally. This isn’t a preschool show;;


Aaaaaand I think that’s it. Liiiipsyyyyyync~~~

Now to go back to actual work and stop talking about things most ppl don’t care about;

Hey kids!  If you’re a filmmaker, animator, or storyboard artist and you don’t know what screen direction is, you might want to read this.

For the record, there are always exceptions to the rule in filmmaking, which is why I pointed out 3 examples here.

I’ve also found that comic books tend to NOT take screen direction as seriously as film does, but I’m still on the fence if this is wise or not.  My favorite comics pay close attention to screen direction so as to not confuse the reader.

Good luck!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! YES

HEY,
IT DOESN"T MATTER IF YOU"RE IN COMICS OR FILM, BREAKING THE 180 CAN CONFUSE THE HELL OUT OF A READER! THIS IS GOOD INFO FOR ANYONE DOING ANYTHING SEQUENTIAL! :3
