important for any artist

Like this is legitimately interesting and I’m not trying to make a point but honestly curious- why do artists apparently draw women as male torsos + breasts??0

because apart from amount of breast tissue, all humans have the same chest anatomy. If you ever have the opportunity to look at cadavers, without skin and fat we’re all basically identical.

“THAT GALAXY PATTERN” tutorial (I honestly don’t know what to call it…it is not much of a pattern)

This is for the anon who wanted to know how I created that “galaxy pattern” in my Carlos & Cecil piece. 

This is the first time I’ve ever written a tutorial so forgive me if I butchered anything up. Just send me an ‘ask’ if you need further clarifications.

OKAY, let’s get to down to business, peeps.

1.) Start with a base color. Try experiment with different base colors.

2.) Create a new layer. Select the watercolor tool. Paint in small circular motions. Vary the pressure and brush sizes.    Experiment with colors! I don’t exactly remember what I used for my original piece.

3.) Set the layer to screen.

4.) Create a new layer. Set layer to overlay. Using a beige or something within that vicinity, repeat what u did in step 2. 

5.) Use a dust spot texture from ICouldntThinkOfAName and set it to overlay.

Yaaay. You’re done!

Extra: play with the levels + soften the edges. Woooaaat.

Thanks for reading! I hope it wasn’t too terribly difficult to follow.
