How To Render Metal -TutorialOn my latest Wonder Woman coloring I took the time to capture about 25 minutes of the process. This is essentially a small tutorial on how I render metal. So go check it out here:How To Render Metal -Tutorial2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Below, I have a step by step walk through on what I'm doing on screen. I didn't want to spend hours using a video editor to add the steps into the video. So I hope reading them below works fine.
Anyways, Enjoy! Hope it helps!
00:08 - Apply a dark purple/blue for a preparation of the warm light (Hard brush at 60%).
00:29 - Use the Lasso tool to make a selection for the blue rim lighting.
01:13 - Apply a light blue over your selection (Soft brush at 60%).
01:20 - Apply white over the light blue (same brush, same opacity).
01:25 - Don't completely cover the blue with the white.
01:36 - remove your selection and add the light blue with a soft brush at 25% to give the metal a sort of ambient glow.
01:46 - Don't be afraid to go back and re-do anything that looks wrong.

Friday I went as Rhyme and fell in love with her outfit almost immediately. I say "almost" because we parked in the Nationwide (I think) parking garage and had about a 5 minute walk through the skywalks/parking garage to get somewhere with heat. It was pretty freaking cold, BUT once we were inside the convention center I was happy to finally be wearing one of the most comfortable cosplays I've ever had on. (Like seriously). The skull pin on my hat then proceeded to break off into my hand two seconds in the door but it was minor compared to what happened to :icontwilightproductions: big sister cosplay. That thing just fell apart everywhere to the point where some very nice con goers asked if she needed some glue. So to the rescue, the brought her some elmers glue and I snitched some to
STOP, THIEF!!(Edit: Over 160,000 people have read this Journal entry already, so don't miss it!)STOP, THIEF!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ha ha ha, best headline ever.
Good, you opened this journal. Don't worry, no art theft shenanigans have transpired that triggered this entry. I merely want to share my thoughts on "ripping off" and "originality" with you, both as an artist and novelist who's been on the Internet for 12 years.
This is not a rant - it's strictly comical, but also educational. I'm known for my laid-back, funny and matter-of-fact attitude
I'll give you a different point of view today, because if there is something I despise more than art theft, it's people accusing others of it. Anti art theft ninjas, also known as: people who have likely not had enough science in school. They often have no compelling evidence. They often have wrong evidence (even worse). They often do it on a whim, a feeling. And they rarely do it silently, rampaging publicly instead, thus driving a witch hunt.

Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan

Gender Bender Art Contest!UPDATE: Contest Closed! Thanks for all the last minute entries!Gender Bender Art Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Starting up a new contest!
First of all, sorry for so much inactivity here, but I'm itching to do a new contest, hopefully people will enjoy this one!
The Gender Bender Art Contest!
seems almost obligatory.
Simple premise: Draw any character from Supernormal Step if they were the opposite gender.
What you need to draw: Full body drawing of the character from head to toe. Color is encouraged but isn't needed. You're basically designing what this character looks like, so get creative with hairstyles and clothing as well!
How many entries per person: Three! Though if one of your pieces is chosen as a winner, the others will be taken out of the running. (So we don't have people winning multiple spots)
Selection Process: A group of 4 judges (including myself) will vote on the winners. We will be judging by creativity.
Due Date: A
Queen of the Mary-SuesA list of traits that make Jean Grey a Mary-Sue (and why I hate her,) inspired by a conversation I had with VertFaereQueen of the Mary-Sues4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Highly persuasive, regardless of the actual content of their conversations. Everyone finds her opinions are just better than their own - even when they're usually stubborn bastards. This is especially likely in an Author Tract.
-Jean has this one in the bag. The first example of this shown would be when Fred Dukes is first introduced in X-Men #3. The Blob refuses to listen to any of the other X-Men, but as soon as Jean effing Gray steps out, he stops and listens. But throughout every storyline, Jean is always right, and Always the voice of reason, even to characters (like Cal Rankin for one) who don't give a shit about reason.
Incorruptible. In fact, unaware of the possibility of temptation.
-Most X-Men have this trait, but Jean takes it to a whole new level.
I Just Want to Be Normal: Being super awesome is a curse.
-Another common trait am

Well, unfortunately, it would seem you all were less than enthused for the last contest, as only two people entered. That's ok, though-- lesson learned! Plus, for our two entrants :iconThePast: and :iconbreezywez:, you are BOTH winners in the eyes of the club! As I dislike the idea of pitting people against eachother, one on one, I'm going ahead and submitting BOTH their entries to the club gallery, as winners. You, Ladies, rock hard-core style. Whoo!
