borichas:

the thing about drawing is you have to start somewhere. You have to keep going and keep drawing NO MATTER WHAT because everyone, in the end, are just people that sit down and have fun.

drawing is about your personal relationship with what YOU love, with what YOU feel, what YOU want. Draw what you like!!! Draw what you see, draw what you love. Like, I’m obsessed with shitty scene fashion and furries which got me SO MUCH flack for it in high school but other people don’t matter. It’s all about you! Keep trying to get better so you can draw what makes you happy

And that’s hard to remember that with all these artists around ESPECIALLY here on tumblr but I PROMISE you that every single person has to continuously cope with comparing their work to someone elses.

it sucks! it hurts. You get self conscious, you don’t want to seem pompous but you want to be noticed. How do you keep going if no one seems to care? How do you stay focused when it feels hopeless?

I’ve learned that the only way someone else is going to care is if you care about your own work. Put the time into finishing something. Work hard to learn how to draw something really difficult. Experiment with style and color! Don’t get caught up with what you can’t do: celebrate your skills. 

Keep going and keep striving to give yourself all the love you deserve.

So, I was looking to download Illustrator CS6 over the last couple of days, and I couldn’t find a reasonable, verified link other than some untried masterposts. Therefore, here is a download link for Windows with a crack for  Adobe Illustrator CS6 [download] 
                              how to crack: the rules are in the download 1; install illustrator as a trial version. 2; when the installation is complete, shut the program. do not launch it for then the crack won’t work. 3; from the DLL folder, copy 32 bit or 64 bit or both  (not the original one) and paste it in all or any one of the following (i usually just paste them in the first one and it works pretty well for me)

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS6 (64 Bit)\Support Files\Contents\Windows
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS6\Support Files\Contents\Windows
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS6\Support Files\Contents\Windows

also, i got a message post-photoshop link that they got a virus from this page. you won’t. don’t click the massive download button, but instead the “get this torrent” and you should be save

I just started making some references for myself, but got carried away hahah… ha :’D

I figured I’d share. I’m hoping to make a series of these things for all the drawing bits that give me trouble: woman torsos, hands, wings, different body types, etc.

I hope you also find them useful!

stringbing:

I did a demo and showed a certain pipeline in Adobe Flash and After Effects to a few folks. The tie downs for this one is really bad since I had to rush it. No model sheet was used, I basically just improvised for this one - so you’ll notice the character changing all the time. I decided to go with a “cowboy during a duel” excercise for this one.
1. Rough Pass - Rough poses with select breakdowns
2. Tie down - Tied down drawings with inbetween
3. Color - Color and after effects
