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!
COLOR PALETTE MASTERPOST by forbiddenforest
So today I felt like sharing some useful websites that provide pre-made color palettes (left side), as well as sites that allow you to create custom ones (right side). They can be used for graphic design, themes, art, interior design,
or just something pretty to look at.
Adobe Kuler (Explore)
Adobe Kuler (Create)
Color Palette Generator (paste the URL of an image and it will automatically generate a pallet that matches the image)
Color Hunter (upload an image and it will automatically generate a pallet that matches the image)
I hope you find this useful (and please like or reblog if you did)! Enjoy :)
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.
Such importance like really! It’s the most common critique given during class and will probably continue to be for at least the rest of the year. I too notice that a lot of comics -surprisingly professionally published ones! - tend to ignore this “rule” and more than once it’s gotten me confused or lost. I really wish the textbooks recommended to us at Pratt had as clear illustrations and descriptions as this, as some of the drawings and language used in explaining what certain cuts are or what they’re like visually/in motion are conveyed in a way much more confusing than they have to be!
But yeah this is lovely and super awesome reference thank you!
Do you also want to create ALL THE ARMOR? I’ve released a book!

I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)
Ohhhh horror vacui neat to see tutorials on it.
KNOTWORK *flips table* I have the rest of this book and it’s amazing and I’m trying to learn how to do it myself. IT’S SO TEDIOUS BUT I LOVE IT
It looks like fun and games now, but welcome to hell.
