Artists' Toolbox: Shading and Highlighting in GIMPHello!Artists' Toolbox: Shading and Highlighting in GIMP1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today we're are going to review (and hopefully learn) how shading and highlighting can be extremely easy and give your work a distinct look depending on technique. This is focusing on using GIMP, but Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai have equivalent tools.
As some may know GIMP is a free and legal image editing program (I say image because the the full name is GNU Image Manipulation Program). It was not necessarily made for painting, but neither was the hair that was first used to make a paintbrush. Despite that however, you can find brilliant ways to make your work stand out. You can check out the web site here
We have two techniques that use specific tools we can use that will each give your work a different appearance:
1. Shading and highlighting with the ink tool
2. Shading and highlighting with the paint brush
Using the ink tool can give you control over line thickness and clean edges

Mario is someone you’ll definitely see in the next one, says Moore. The only reason the character didn’t appear in the first film is because Moore couldn’t find anywhere for him to go, it wasn’t because Nintendo refused them.
There You Have
Also Moore says he doesn’t plan on handing over the directing reigns come sequel someone else.
“I love the group, I’d be crazy to ask someone else to take the reigns.”
These are the kind of stuff that give me hope on this sequel, the same people working on it…
I don't take requests!It may sound rude but I don't accept requests. To me a request is kinda a free commission and I don't want to work without anything in return. Besides, if I accept one random person's request, I must accept all.I don't take requests!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's not like I'm unfriendly for not doing a favor but one drawing takes me about 5h to 10h.
I'm sorry, my freetime is limited and I also want to draw what I want.
Yes, I love drawing. But it depends on what I draw. I want to draw what I feel like.
Drawing without happiness and passion is senseless. That's no art to me anymore... Just pure handwork.
Yes, requests CAN be a great practice. Requests CAN make you seem nice.
And yes, requests CAN make you work your ass off.
This stamps says it directly:
However, I'm open for some idea suggestions! Feel free to tell me what you'd like to see in my style!
I decide whether I'll draw it or not.
But if you want me to draw your OC, then it should be a commission.
Art trades are only open for close friends.

Dooonnnnt try to cheer me up... I know myself very well and when I know one thing then its the thing that I can never feel negativity. Things come and go in life and acception is the only way to understand. That something you hold, will soon fall out of your grasp. You cant hold forever. Same with life. You will go too. Someday. You will loose hold of your life. And fall into the darkness which is your end. Your end...

The StoryHi, welcome! This group is a Digimon PR group set 10 years after the events of Digimon 02. We are always open for new members and would love to have you join us in our adventures.The Story3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the events with Malomyotismon and the rebuilding of the digital world, the digi-destined have grown up and a new set of Digimon tamers have taken their place to protect both worlds from the forces of evil. These new tamers monitor and protect digi-world are members of the "The Organization", a place in digi-world that was built by the original digi-destined and Genni several years go.
The Digital World has been pretty peaceful until just recently. Around a year ago a mysterious and dark force started taking hold of usually tame digimon and making them go berserk! There have been several attacks on villages by crazed digimon since. Including a few recently that included full groups of digimon who are attacking and dismantling the small villages. Most of these digimon appeared to
Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

EPI3 part 1 + IMPORTANT READHello everyone. Here is episode 3 part 1.EPI3 part 1 + IMPORTANT READ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First thing is, Zing left the project officially and we're going to continue without her. You can watch why here, the video she made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTuTyflipx4
I'll be honest, Yuji and Zing were great animators that both go/went to college, and we haven't so far. We're basically self taught, and we've got a lot to learn. Them leaving may change things a bit, but we'll still try our best to animate the best we can. It's not a professional animation and keep that in mind, it's just a fanimation and we don't have a lot of experience with animation yet, though I've personally learned a lot the past 2 years I was part of SSS Warrior cats.
If you disagree with the change and those two animators leaving (Basically all ORIGINAL animators / directors are gone now), and you'll expect the same quality and style, you may want to un-
