Reblogging to reference later.
Also hangin’ onto this!
Folks welcomed the hand reference I posted, so here’s some foot reference.
As an artist you’ll draw A LOT of feet, especially feet that REST ON THE GROUND. Don’t be one of those artists who hides feet behind grass or mist all the time. Print these out and draw ‘em.
I included the knees because you’ll need to know how feet connect with legs; draw ‘em up to the knee.
The best deodorant you will ever use
Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.
Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome
This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders.
Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working.
Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D
So I’ve seen this post going around in link form, which isn’t super useful to anyone who wants to read it, so I put it up in photo form. Useful for anyone who doesn’t have xkit. :3 Definitely like and reblog the OP, but if it shows up as a link, this helps. :3
I fixed the link for the OP so it works now :)
NEED THIS IN MY LIFE RN!!! THANK YOU TUMBLR!
I suck at cover letters so this is fab
Home made Catio!
Tai got to play in it for the first time today!
I’ve been working on and off on a catio (cat patio—in short, an outdoor enclosure) for my kitties. I know at least for Tai Lung (my boy kitty) must get bored inside, so I wanted a way for him to safely play outdoors without worrying if he’ll get lost, run over, or be attacked by other animals. But professionally made catios are expensive! ($2,000+) and even store bought enclosures can get pricey ($300+).
Luckily, I found this great tutorial on how to make your own custom catio inexpensively and without a need for tools using wire cubes!
The materials, including the mats I used for the runways cost me around $100! (the decorations and foliage cost me extra, but I wanted it to look cute >.< ) Take note that I happen to buy the wire cubes when they were on sale at Target. But you can also find them at KMart or bed bath and beyond. The mats were bought from Daiso ($1.50 each)
I’m happy (and relieved) to say that Tai absolutely loves his new enclosure. He stayed outside for most of the day (until it got too dark and I lured him back inside with treats). Kona… well, she went outside ONCE and then quickly lost interest. Definitely an indoor kitty (can you tell by her old lady flab? it’s ok, I knew she probably wouldn’t get as much use out of it).
The cats can get in and out via the Kitchen Window. I removed the screen on the window, and to prevent them from jumping on top and escaping, I put an extra wire panel vertically for blockage.
It’s also great if you’re a renter like me, since it is relatively nondestructive and easy to take down if you ever move. Not to mention, it’s great if you have no carpentry/building skills (tools and me don’t mix)
If you have an indoor kitty and would like a way for them to safely bask in the outdoors I’d definitely recommend this method. And the best part is you can make it as big or small as you want and continue to build and expand later!
Again, if you missed it, here’s how you can make a do-it-yourself catio! CLICK HERE!
Found this online. Great for those who are drafting hoods.
Hoods are one of those finicky things to draft if you never drafted hoods before.
Example Cosplay: Attack on titan capes
I find this more revolutionary than I probably should, given the number of hoods I’ve sewn over the years. But it’s like world is a whole lot clearer now!
YES YES YES
The shape of hoods are the bane of my sewing existence, thank youuuu~!
just adjust opacity and size depending on how crisp lines you want
this shit took like 10 minutes
and here’s the brush for that last WIP
Just some tips from me!
Can’t tell you how much I wish I knew this a couple of years ago.
Reblogging for everyone who’s curious about how I animate.
Fuck you for being smart
this is actually better than the spoon thing cause you dont have to hold it in place.
thank goodness, I felt totally inept bcse I couldn’t get the spoon thing to work. Also thanks for reblogging this.
lolsob actually I don’t use PS to color at all…. I use SAI mainly haha
idk how to explain but I think the trick lies on the pressure you apply on your hand when you draw the stroke, control your hand movement and see when you do light stroke when to do heavy stroke??? but hopefully this helps lolsob TwT
Laying down the groundwork for future tutorials on the subject.
