k this isnt really finished but i really wanted to draw a reichenbach fall thing and then i was thinking about portal and so yeah you know that one mural rattmann did of chell
this is essentially that but
This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph.
Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.
And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.
People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.
Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.
I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.
And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.
i’d also like to add that artists and writers have a right to deny requests they feel uncomfortable filling, for any reason. please don’t get mad at them, especially if no money is involved.
“I needed you then, I need you now, and you'd better fucking hold on, you piece of shit."
Trevor squinted up at him. His breathing was shallow and ragged, beads of sweat dripping over his haggard cheek bones and into the thick stubble around his mouth. “I’m sorry."
i’m 100% fucking serious when i say if you havent read this fic, you’re SERIOUSLY missing out. it’s heartbreaking and touching but it’s so fucking good please do yourself a favor and read it.

Trevor squinted up at him. His breathing was shallow and ragged, beads of sweat dripping over his haggard cheek bones and into the thick stubble around his mouth. The medics burst in, shouting, and he was sure that Trevor’s trembling lips formed into the words, “I’m sorry,” moments before he lost consciousness.
probably definitely clean this up either tonight or when i get back from camp, but if you havent read atrophy, pls do… it’s great….
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!
this is so important *-*
Cosplayers too pay attention cause all those steps apply for our ‘art’ as well.
Part 2 will cover Elemaps, Blotmaps, Brushtex, how they work and how to make your own.
Fun fact: The Airbrush is just a soft edge pen tool and is also completely useless
I also meant to include What The Hell Is A Stabilizer and it’s thrilling sequel Oh My God How Did I Ever Live Without This but I ran out of room.
