I think i will try these out
I don’t have the biggest following, but this needs to be shared in every possible outlet. Hayley is important to so many people here, and they are literally trudging through marsh in the cold rain to find her. Vital information is missing in this case, such as the identity of the “group of people” who helped her fix her tire. If anyone has changed a tire in the New Orleans/UNO area, please come forward. If anyone has seen Hayley or her vehicle, please come forward.
And please, please reblog this. It’s been nearly four days, and we refuse to lose hope.
This is the facebook page that has been created to aide in the search, where more information can be found: https://www.facebook.com/HelpFindHayleyHoward

Man, this is exactly the kind of stuff I’m talking about when I mention value range! The Witch Doctor before and after page is a really good example of the importance of starting with a dark value and working up. The “before” is a pretty common result of working light to dark, or starting with a value that is too close to the middle of the value range. Everything looks kind of washed out, even when working with saturated colors, and lacks volume.
This is an amazing reference overall, gonna pour over the full PDF when I have a minute.
oooh this is really helpful!! i think i’ll make some minor coloring changes according to this, i think it’ll help a lot
This is a great resource; we took a long hard look at this before we developed our 3D art style at work. Very smart, very well laid out. A really crucial resource to anyone who needs to worry about readability at a distance.
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
I ask that no one removes the credit or source for this tutorial/guide please. thanks :)
And this is a keeper! No doubt about that! :)
I’m just gonna put this one on standby
for when I start my senior film!
Wow everyone look at this- this is an amazing tablet, and I wish I had seen it before I just dropped $170 on a small intuos 5
This is called a Tursion Huion tablet- looks pretty simple right- kind of like a bamboo
here’s the thing. This tablet has 2024 levels of pressure- that is the equivalent to the pressure an intuos 5 currently has (retail price: $229 for the smallest)
You can get this lovely tablet for under $50 dollars on amazon
Only thing this beautiful table it lacking is a few simple buttons, but still, I mean, its drawing area is even bigger on average then most Wacom’s small tablets- and from the reviews ive seen on it people are very impressed….so just spreading the word around that Wacom isn’t the only one that is making good tablets- the more the company is spread perhaps they will come out with even better products that not only match up to Wacom, but are with in our price range for once!
You an buy one below at the link!
I literately just bought one of these and got it today omfg, its great you guys ok!
Reblogging for my drawing friends.
i can vouch for this brand its super great!!
totally!! the basic vocab is that an upwards pointing mouth is “superior” (as in “above”), a downwards pointing mouth is “inferior” (as in “below”), and a mouth that is in the middle is “terminal” (because it comes at the very “end” of the fish’s head as opposed to below or above the longest point), like so:
a = terminal, b = superior, c = inferior (there are lots of variations on this theme, like inferior-terminal, superior-terminal, level of protrusion, etc)
most catfish and other bottom-dwellers have inferior mouths:
fish that live in the middle of the water column typically have terminal mouths because they’re eating stuff directly in front of them, instead of stuff above or below their heads:
(Neolamprologus brichardi, also known as the “fairy cichlid”)
fish that get food from the surface of the water often have superior mouths. bettas, one of the most common aquarium fish, have superior mouths because in the wild they’re typically insectivores and eat little bugs and shit that fall on the surface of the water. another guy with a superior mouth is the african butterfly fish:
(Pantodon buchholzi, these dudes are actually awesome)
it’s a useful general classification, but it doesn’t nearly cover the spectrum of mouth diversity in bony fishes — they’re working with dozens of bones in their skulls while you’ve got like, two (skull and mandible), so there’s a TON of variation
