If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you

Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!

You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2  and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.

Mirre’s set of custom brushes for Manga Studio & Clip Studio Paint

foervraengd:

First things first, download links for the brush packs:

These files should work both in Manga Studio AND CLIP Studio Paint.

The first brush pack contains what I usually stick to, the two other are optional (but pretty fun to goof around with).

now let’s take a look at some of the brushes:

image

This brush is what I use more or less for everything. The spacing is reduced in order to easier control the density using the pen pressure, which is very common for Photoshop brushes. But Manga Studio didn’t include this one in it’s default brush pack so I created my own!

image

I mostly use three blender tools and blender #1 is currently my fav.

image

Blender#2 has density set to pen pressure which makes it blend softer.

image

Blender#3 is sharp and very smudgy but is really nice once you get used to it. Good to use for rendering hair or “push around” colors to make the painting look cleaner.

There are a bit more brushes in the “main pack” but the ones shown in this post are tbh the brushes I usually stick to.

Random FX brush pack:

image

Forget your art block and begin your new life as an artist with this LITERAL HAIR BRUSH.

With this tool you can finally give your OCs the perfect Square Enix hairstyle - and it ALSO does your eyebrows and moustache!

image

TRUST ME the double line brush is your best friend and will always deliver shoelaces, cables, strings - ALMOST ANYTHING. Also stubble brush is cool.

image

Sparkle brush is so fantastic to use for any blissful situation; like for example when you realise that one cool artist on tumblr actually follows your askblog. Those kind of moments.

Environment brush pack:

image

These brushes will easily replicate random hills and misty mountains, but don’t expect them to make you a cool concept artist in one night.

sometimes I forget that rulers work with tablets and I get really frustrated with my inability to freehand straight lines

I NEVER

REALIZED

YOU COULD DO THIS

BUT IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE

#and you can just trace circles too and use a straight edge and ohmygod my whole world is different now   

omfg for real I thought this was just me?

er, dear artists of Tumblr:

image

image

WHY DID THIS NEVER OCCUR TO ME?

pspspss

you can also trace things

image

If you want to do straight lines digitally in Photoshop (and Manga Studio), if you draw a dot, press shift, and then draw another dot, a straight line will appear between the 2 dots. :’D

A professional script reader read 300 screenplays for five different studios, all the while tracking the many recurring problems. The infographic he made with the collected data offers a glimpse at where screenwriting goes wrong.

pay attention to this

this is important even if you don’t write scripts

This is exceedingly important to all storytellers

huntri-ftw asked: Hi there! So I'm in the process of creating my own Web comic and I was curious if you had any tips or advice? And any resources that you'd recommend? Please and thank you~

mayakern:

i don’t really have any resources that pertain specifically to webcomics. i went to school to study comics but it was pretty heavily focused on print so what i do online is pretty much just take those ideas and apply them to the web as a medium. i always suggest scott mccloud’s “making comics” to anyone who wants to make comics at all. it’s a really good basic guide to comics and he’s a great comic artist.

other reading i highly recommend: asterios polyp (by far one of my all time favorite comics; it isn’t a guide or a how to, but i think anyone who has read it can understand how valuable it is to have in your mental archives), framed ink (actually about storyboarding, but can be applied to comics as well), and perspective! for comic book artists (do i even need to explain this one; actually, i need to go back and dust up on it now that i think about it…)

other than that, all i can really tell you is to just do the work. make the story you want to make but understand that different types of stories will require different amounts of work in different areas. if you’re going to make a comic in space, you better get good at drawing all that space stuff, etc etc etc. basically, it’s your story, work as hard as you want to to do it justice. if you put in good work, even if it starts out rocky, eventually you’ll get to a good place. if you crap out on yourself, you’ll probably make crap. making comics is a lot of work and there is no way around that. it is very much a labor of love (not to say there can’t be compensation, but it’s like animation; why would anyone draw that much of the same thing over and over and over again if they didn’t love what they were doing).

one last thing: you’re going to screw up. it happens. you can’t make a perfect comic. it’s better to start and realize you messed up a year later than to keep putting it off for years and be left with nothing. there is a lot to be said for careful planning and plotting, but after a certain point you just have to make the damn thing and know that no matter what, in a year you are going to grimace when you look back at that first page. our taste always evolves ahead of our talent so don’t wait until you are “good enough.” if i had waited until i was good enough i would never have made any comics. it’s all good and well to practice drawing beforehand and improve yourself, but nothing with force you to improve more than actually making that damn comic.
