Alpha's Art and Stuff
I've always admired how quickly you draw amazing things, so thank you for that advice post!! Can you share the settings you use to go from 200 to 300dpi? Or do you go from 100 straight to 300 when you know your work will be printed?

robscorner:

Cheers! I go straight to 300 DPI when I’m going to color if it’s designated for print. 

For 200 to 300 DPI, just resize in increments of 50 at Bicubic Smoother (250DPI, Bicubic Smoother > 300DPI, Bicubic Smoother).

Hello, I read your "About me" selection to make sure you haven't done this tutorial before I asked. I'm having major problems with side view lips. My lips always end up looking like The Simpsons lips. (Google it if you don't know the show to know what I'm talking about) It's Terrible because I can't seem to understand how to draw them on both Males and Females. Can you please help guide me on how to draw them? (If you have time)

Omg dear this is a really difficult thing you are asking to me because I’m not a lips expert ;w; I’ll do my best! 
I even did gifs OHOH it’s the first time, I hope they explains better than my writing.
Lips are not ‘round’ as simpsons one, quoting you. They have more like a smoothed triangular aspect, like a cone with a round tip.
Of course it depends the style you are using when drawing lips, most anime-manga/cartoonish styles uses just a line for the lips and I do use a more complicated but still simple style for the lips I draw. 
For example, I do draw the lower part of the cupid’s bow, I don’t think it has a proper name, so I’m showing you:

When I’m drawing and coloring males, I don’t color the lips because my style isn’t realistic so I don’t bother. That’s why the cupid’s bow isn’t showing (and in non-realistic styles I find it really annoying if it’s only drew, like in certain mangas, for example)

Time to show you how I draw lips. 
First example, the normal smiling side view lips
image

As you can see the lips are little curves and it’s not necessary that the side lips have to touch the line. Also, look at the third arrow, the line between the lips is more curved because of the under cupid’s bow. 

An opened mouth is different, since the inside of the mouth or the teeth divide the lips:

Normal closed mouth, no smiling:

I am sorry, I hope it helps ;__; I didn’t even know where to start explaining! Anyway you can try to search on deviantart for more accura tutorials ;v;

Finally, a get my head out of my ass and start this bloody commission!

Today’s little sketchin’.
Now that I have 2 weeks off, these are going to be loads of fun. I’ll finally be able to get better outside of paper or at least draw digitally more often.

I still miss my scanner…

Gigantic Announce Trailer

Motiga announced their first game today, and I’m pretty psyched! I’m not really into MOBAs, but I’m going to have to try this one. Mostly because it’s gorgeous, and partly because the twist they’ve put in actually makes it look interesting to me.

Pretty terrible gifs, but eh. EHH. I don’t care. Fun.

Visit Gigantic's website to read more about the game and sign up for the alpha!

These character designs are FANTASTIC!

WOW WHAT IS THIS I WANT

tinybirdfriend FROO THEY HAVE BIRD PEOPLE

I’m no fan of MOBA either but HOLY BALLS those this game look gorgeous.

I’ll give it a go just to enjoy all the eye candy thrown at me right now!

Falcon still kicking some ass!

Let’s remember that he beat up Chrom out of being playable into an Final Smash assist.

And nearly beat Lucina if it wasn’t from Robin.

I’m glad to see him back officially!

Simple watercolor process

A simple watercolor tutorial! We just started seriously trying to learn and work with watercolors just this year, so this tutorial shouldn’t be taken as an expert way of painting. We’re still learning ourselves, and these are a few steps that we have learned to approach to make our own process easier. Especially the more simplistic style we like to dabble in. Pardon if there are any misspellings or if something isn’t too clear. Let us know if you use this tutorial as well. We would love to see what you do!

Hope you enjoy!
