Honolulu, March 17th 1985 by Following-The-Rabbit Honolulu, March 17th 1985 by Following-The-Rabbit
I'm, uh, really tired, and I have to work tomorrow
Gonna skip the description for now and write one up tomorrow.

Oh hey, it's morning. Time for me to gush about Hotline Miami.
I arrived a little late to the party, as per usual; I got both games during the summer sale last year, but didn't get to playing them until December of 2016, and finished the sequel in January.
It's been months, and I'm still not over that ending.
Initially, I was never going to draw Jacket and Beard's Polaroid; I just don't consider myself skilled enough. However, a close friend's birthday was coming up, and I couldn't resist. It's kind of sentimental, I guess. Still not sure if I like the final product, though. Bleh. 

Also, if you prefer pieces that censor Jacket's face, I've got you covered.

EDIT: I fixed the colors, and I'm selling phone cases, prints, stickers, and shit like that with this on it.

Commissions Info (+ Updates)Payment
Paypal. Always paypal. Ask me for my email via note.
To get put on my list, I ask for a small percentage of the full commission's price, normally $3 - $5 USD, depending on how much the piece costs. I ask for 50% before I start the sketch, and the rest of the payment can be sent before I start coloring. This way I don't have to worry about holding onto someone's money while I work on other commissions.
All prices are in USD, but if you'd like me to convert the price to a different currency, I'd be more than happy to.

I've seen it in humble bundles a lot, and it's almost always on sale, or in some kind of package deal with its sequel. So, there's plenty of opportunities to get on that if you want.

If you like fast-paced, hard-as-balls shooters, then sure.

Uhhhhh.. . . .. u hhhhhh.........
I'm no expert, but here are my general water color/traditional medium tips until I put out a tutorial or something.

1. Assuming you're using watercolors that come from paint tubes, don't put raw colors on the canvas. Always mix them with something. For this example, most colors are mixed with yellow ochre to give them a warm, aged tint. For the darker colors used for shading, I mixed the base colors with a darker brown. Of course, different colors produce different effects and tones. For a cooler feel, you could mix your colors with blues or purple, for something romantic you could mix your colors with pinks or reds, etc. Experiment!
I s'pose you could also mix pressed water colors as well, but I recommend still using a pallet for that; They're really cheap if you get a plastic one. Mine was $1.69

2. You don't need an extensive variety of brushes but use more than one. I normally use about five brushes for each painting, one or two larger brushes for blocking in areas, and a few smaller brushes for detailing.

3. Use more than one color to shade an area. In this example, I used about five different shades of brown and green to make the trees in the background, Jacket's hair is shaded with four different blonde tones, etc. The more contrast there is in your shading, the more certain details will pop.

4. Don't lighten colors with white. While this rule has exceptions, such as if you're making highlights after painting on shadows, lighten your colors by watering them down. Building off on that, don't put down your base colors first, put down your highlight colors, and go darker as you work.

5. Don't draw directly on watercolor paper. Or any paper besides sketch paper. Draw it on sketch paper, and transfer it to the paper appropriate for whatever medium you're working with. This works for any traditional medium/paper To transfer, flip your drawing over, and cover the back side of the page with a dark, soft lead. I use ebony pencils, but regular pencil works, too. Just make sure it's nice and dark. Cut out your drawing to the appropriate size, and use painters tape to attach it to your paper of choice (Bristol for copic drawings, watercolor paper for paintings, drawing paper or bristol for colored pencil, etc), ebony pencil side down, so you can see your drawing. Then, use a pencil to trace over your drawing again. Use pressure; The goal is to make an impression on the paper underneath that is marked by the lead you used to cover the back of your drawing. Carefully peel the tape off, and you should have a faded sketch underneath. Lightly trace over the faded sketch if needed; Some transfers turn out better than others, so sharpening up the details doesn't hurt. Ink if you need to (But I usually don't ink my watercolors.), and paint, erasing the pencil marks as you go. It makes the final product a lot cleaner. Compare the sketch vs. the transfer here: rabbitflesh.tumblr.com/post/16…

6. Work on the background first, and work your way to the details in the front last. With this painting, I made the sky first, then the beach, then the water, the trees, the bushes, and then Beard and Jacket.

7. Work on one area at a time; Watercolors are easiest to work with when they're damp. Of course, this depends on the effect you're going for, but I do most of my blending when the paint is wet.

Again, I'm no expert, but those are the best tips I can think of.
Glad you like my painting <3, and I hope you had a happy birthday. Let me know if you want anything special. :heart:
