Valid Uses for Tracing Paper
When hearing the term "tracing paper" by a non-artisan, it's often assumed that the *primary* and *only* possible use for such paper is to plagiarize other people's art. This stigma tends to remain with beginning traditional artists who have inherited this prejudice. In practice, the real uses of tracing paper are for the exact opposite. Tracing paper is just another useful tool of many that can help you improve your own original art. It's true that tracing paper is for tracing (obviously). But it's true potential becomes clearer once you look at tracing paper similarly to how digital artists use "layers", cut-and-paste, and "undo". It is a way of improving the efficiency of your workflow and the quality of the results.
Art is more than just abstract inspiration or expression, it is also concrete problem-solving. One problem to solve is how to compose your image. Where should the elements be placed? How do their shapes interrelate? In books and videos like "Drawing Comics the Marvel Wa

BibLITotheque 6: Conlang for Dummies Part 1
:iconhellotharidiot:
Welcome to the sixth issue of BibLITothèque: the Writer's Library! This issue is about a topic both exciting and terrifying: creating new languages for your story, in the vein of Tolkien's Quenya and Sindarin or Star Trek's Klingon. If you’re writing fantasy, sci-fi, or any other story in an invented setting, sooner or later you’ll run into the issue of whether or not to use made-up words and names.
Conlang (constructed language) is complicated as hell, so this guide is geared toward making life as simple as possible. Good writing has few words doing a lot of work, and for the sake of your story, conlang is the same. Ideally, use as few made-up words as possible. Because there’s so much ground to cover, I'm splitting this guide into two parts. Part 1 addresses conlang in general terms and how it functions within your story. Part 2 will be a focused guide on how to create languages.
Why create a new language? :shr

Hello there, and welcome to my page!
I love to draw, especially using traditional media like colored pencils and watercolor.

My others hobbies include listening to and playing music.
I'm currently studying mechanical engineering.
I enjoy comments as well as constructive critism, so don't be shy to critize!

Interests
To help me create more art than last year (just a single submissions! :( ) , I've decided to do another OC drawing challenge, but trying to do some higher quality artwork than the previous challenge.
Feel free to join me! I've found this great challenge by :iconlohkk: : Art Challenge for your OC's!This Challenge is for you if:
You have at least 5 Original Characters (OC's)
You want to draw something other than your OC just standing there.
Your drawings can be as silly or serious as you want.
The idea behind this challenge is to get you familiar with how your OCs react in certain situations. Hopefully, you will become familiar with drawing different facial expressions, different poses, and by the end of it you should be able to draw all five OCs with a blindfold on!
Feel free to fave and use this as you please! I only ask that you take a moment to look at the rest of my gallery <3 
Fave&Run's make me sad!
