After 6 years of using this program I finally figured this out, so I decided to share the technique. IDK, it sure beats the “Use brush with no pen pressure to make a dot” type of thing.

The use of the vector layer comes with other nifty things like:

  • No decrease in quality while transforming
  • No 500px size limit
  • Playing with line thickness and distortion

So, I hope this comes in handy to a few of you!

You can make a Hexagon by using the Line Tool instead and turning the canvas 4 times each click. I’m sure you can do other things, but I haven’t figured those out yet.

Makichan’s answer to part one


for the yowpeda 69min challenge on twitter. tonight was “Makishima and Toudou”

Good mornin’ Tumblr!

That last post of mine was kinda of unexpected?! I really appreciate all the likes and reblogs, thankyou very much! 

So, I wanted to draw some Free! characters and practice body structure. Tho I still have to finish Nagisa and Rei, here are some sketches for Haru, Makoto and Rin! I noticed that many artists change hairstyle and put makeup to make characters as females. I wanted to make things a little bit different, changing only their facial features. :3

Please, tell me if I had success at this, ‘cause I still have to practice a lot!

Hugs <3

(also, my fav one is Makoto <3)

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

I was actually going to write a long post about this yesterday, but this lovely comic sums up all my points perfectly! Artists, please read this! It can be hard to break out of your bad “my art sucks” habits, but you gotta try. I used to do that ALL THE TIME, but a few years ago I made a conscious effort to change and I feel my art is much better for it. It’s not easy, it’ll take practice, but it’s worth it. Love your art!

Theres still not enough gayness in my blog.




Israel begins its ground invasion of the Gaza Strip

Fucking signal boost this shit

This is one of the most horrific things happening in the world and yet I can’t seem to find out any news about it.

Ambulances are being shot by tanks. Doctors, civilians, children playing on the beach and everyone else are all being killed.
