Hey Anon! Sorry I took so long to answer this—I wanted to do something more in-depth over just a ‘ok draw a circle now MAKE IT AWSUM.’ I also tried to recall from other tutorials stuff in them I didn’t feel like they spoke about.

also—I’m very sorry I don’t have more advice to give about ears. I am not completely confident with them yet! Gotta keep practicing.

As always, I am not 100% correct on everything, so feel free to use what you want and ignore what you don’t want!

Here’s some more tutorials on noses and ears that might be helpful, if this one isn’t:

Turning straw into pen.

用吸管做藝術筆 Turning straw into pen.

watering76:

image

先前用削鵝毛筆的方法做了一支吸管筆,堪用,不過不大好寫。

這裡教的是之前用來寫藝術字的2.0版,很簡單的。(動圖請耐心等候..)

你需要準備吸管、剪刀、刀片、釘書機、墨水。You’ll need straw, scissors, knife, stapler and ink.

1.把吸管壓平。 Flatten a straw.

image

2.將兩邊剪掉一點。 Cut off two side of the straw.

image

3.因為吸管防水,寫字時表面張力會干擾墨水流出,所以要在內側用刀片輕輕的刮幾下製造幾道溝槽。We know straws are waterproof, which means surface tension will jamming the ink when writing. Gently scratching inside of the straw with knife to make few groove.

image

4.用釘書機釘起來。 Staple the straw.

image

5.從後端注入墨水,一次不要太多,不然會漏。 Inject few drop of ink. Don’t inject too much or it will leak.

image

好啦~~~這樣就可以開始寫字畫圖囉!!!

Done!! You can starting your creation now!

This tutorial explains some of the ways you can incorporate undertones into your art. It starts out very basic for beginners, then shows some more advanced ways to shade. 
If you don’t have photoshop then instead of using a “color burn” layer, experiment with what your program does have. Try a “Multiply” layer or a “shade” layer.

This is a T-square
If you’re a traditional artist working with comics, it is your best friend.  Not only is it essential to getting lines to run perfectly perpendicular to the page, you need one if you’re going to rule your own pages. It’s a time-saver, believe me, and using a ruler is nowhere near as accurate on its own.  You can get one for about $20 at most local art supply stores, OR you can go rummage through an office supply store like Staples and find one for approximately $10. It will not have inches marked out, however it’ll work just fine!

Okay, decided to whip this up because of the following reasons:

1) I get this question a lot. Apparently there are a ton of folks out there that are really new to paypal and while I don’t mind helping, having a good reference page for folks that shows you exactly what to do will cut down the time I spend explaining it.

2) I’ve had two flags on my account in the past year because no one check the “No Shipping Required” box. So Paypal comes to me and says “Hey you didn’t ship our their thing!!!” but I do digital commissions…there’s nothing to ship! So this step is really important!

3) I often have to give out my Paypal email over and over for this and I figured having it in one spot might help!

There will be a new page on my blog with these images and I’ll try to keep them up to date if Paypal happens to change their format! Hope this helps you guys!
