A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!

xaran-alamas asked: Do you happen to have reference for drawing scarves? Specifically very long ones folded around so they're draping down a character's back? Thanks and thanks for running this reference blog for artists :D

hmm… I don’t know if we have one in the clothes tag. You could search the posts there? c: I looked on google but I couldn’t find much, but perhaps reference images could help?

rukimii asked: Has there been any blood splattering tutorials that could help me without using whiplashes with paint? Specifically using only pencils and such. Blood splattering seems so simple yet so complicated to me.

Here’s our blood tag! As for doing things with pencils, I would just really look at pictures of blood splatter (if that kind of thing doesnt make you squeamish :p )and really try to replicate the pictures. Paint will behave enough like blood when splattered, so you get a unique pattern. But if you’re using pencil, I would recommend copying a pattern from a reference or using reference to study how blood behaves and what blood looks like when splattered. 

I think it definitely is simple and complicated at the same time :p there’s a very thin line with things like that, where it can go from looking like blood one minute to not looking anything like it the next. You have to know when to add more and when to stop! It involves a lot of finesse, haha. 

The way I learnt to draw blood is do splatter painting / observe reference pictures of blood / look at how other people draw blood. Then from there, try to develop your own way of drawing it. Focus on learning how blood behaves in different situations (on clothing, on skin, etc etc), what colors it is, how it dries, etc. 

Good luck!

Supplies:

 1 high temp hot glue gun

Silicon mold. You can use a fondant silicon mold (The ones used to decorate cakes) A soap silicon mold, or resin silicon mold. The mold MUST be made of silicon for this method to work

High temp glue sticks

Step 1:

Wait for the glue gun to heat up fully (I let mine sit for around 3-5 minuets) Once fully heated fill each mold up all the way. If a little goes over the edges that is okay you can cut he extra away.

Step 2:

Wait for each piece to cool fully before removing from mold. Once they are fully cooled you can lay them out to be painted. First layer is a primer. The choice of primer is up to you, I picked white. This is an outside part of the job as it calls for spray paint. Place each piece face up and spray a layer of primer on. I ended up spraying about 4 layers. You can also paint the underside if you wish.

Step 3:

Once the primer is fully dried you are ready to paint the detail. Depending on what you are doing you can either use a colored can of spray paint or you can hand paint the pieces with acrylic paint. I’ve done both methods as I needed everything to be solid gold for my Seth cosplay while for my White Rabbit cosplay as I needed a mixture of colors on one piece. Finishing can be, leave as is or add a gloss of your choice. image

Step 4: 

Adding the pieces to your project is really easy, just turn the glue gun back on and wait for it to heat up once more. Add glue to the back of the cast piece before carefully placing it in the proper location. 

You can make everything from buttons, clasps, gems, to pieces that look like armor.

DISCLAIMER!!! THIS METHOD USES A HIGH TEMP HOT GLUE GUN WHICH CAN CAUSE A SECOND TO EVEN A THIRD DEGREE BURN. BE CAREFUL WHEN USING THIS METHOD. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BURN YOURSELF, SOMEONE ELSE, OR ANYTHING FOR THAT MATTER.

I hope this was helpful and please I would love to see photos of what you’ve created ^__^

Hand practice! My lecturer said my hands look all the same so I tried to put in some character. It’s hard! Will try to simplify more next.
