Anonymous asked you:How did u get so good at drawing guns, and how long have u been drawing them?Thank you for the compliment! I wouldn’t call myself an expert on the matter yet (I’m still doing my best to learn!), but drawing guns is actually not as difficult as most people would think-I threw together a little how-to that more or less illustrates my thought process when tackling guns (semi-automatic pistols, sorry). This is just bare bones information however, for there are many different makes and models of guns that won’t always comply with steps 2 and 3 of this tutorial (the example I drew is based off a SIGp228). But that’s where the internet and picture references come in to help fill in the blanks!Funny thing is that I avoided drawing guns like the plague up until last year when my buddy finally took me shooting and I think I developed some sort of mutual understanding with them (read: I really really liked it) and decided to learn how to draw them good!/EDIT/PS ANON IF YOU MEANT TO ASK HOW I DRAW NOT FIREARM GUNS BUT MUSCLE GUNS THEN I’M SORRY OMG
OH BOY GUNS
Just what I needed
since a lot of you were asking.
Trakoclock asked:Hey, if you don’t mind sharing, I’ve always wondered how you got that soft celling look on your characters in your comic. Any tips? I’m currently working on my own comic and I kind of want to go for a less harsh form of cell shading. Thanks!
A couple people have asked about the way I color things and I’ve been meaning to post a tutorial on it :]. I’ve never been too good at describing my process, but I hope this helps!
SUPER EASY SUPER SIMPLE PRETTY LEGIT glitchy image effect. kinda like VHS tearing.
- select a bit of it, all the way across
- shear it kind of like this - play with the curve!
that’s it! you can do it per channel to get cool color tear effects, and once you’re done you can use things like lens blur with a bit of noise and specular highlighting to get a more organic effect. i’ve seen other glitch / screenshot / VHS-effect tutorials and none of them have looked even remotely organic to me, so have this!
There seem to be useful tips here whether you’re doing things ‘Sander’s Style’ or not.
oh, really really interesting
you should get the bottom result
The rest of the steps have to do with animation.
And that’s how I get my flashy/glitchy effect in my trickster talksprites.
