Apologies in advance for any spelling errors, I’ll fix stuff in the morning…too tired now…
oh hey it’s a tutorial on glowing stuff I guess…I already made one 2 years ago but I don’t make things glow like that any more :|
…also when I’m manually doing colours I pick things like this as if I was shading.
there’s a lot more I could put in as well, but it really varies on the picture how I do the glow…it is usually just fiddling around with styles and colours though.
Have you gotten to reference layers yet because OMG.
WAT IS THAT
Here’s what I’m trying to say in gif form. I rambled insanely.
The blue layer is set to reference.
Then you can do this.
More on that here.
If you Ctrl+Click on the little box that shows what is on the layer, it will create a selection the same shape as everything on that layer. This works in Photoshop, too.
I don’t know how I lived life before knowing this.
fuck i didn;t know this
Recommended reading for animation students and enthusiasts.
I’m quite often asked about how to get started with animation. I don’t feel that I’m successful enough yet to really give out valuable advice, but I can recommend some books.
I deliberately left out “The Art of…” books because they entirely depend on which movies you like the look of. So I stuck with more practical ones.
I have to vouch heavily for “Character Animation Crash Course”. It’s best when used as a companion to Richard Williams’ book.
Reblogging for later
‘Kiss Scene rough sketches - Drawing for Boys Love (Yaoi)' A 103 page book/CD rom with male/male kissing scenes, from many different angles, for artist drawing references.
Other art references like this can be found here:
A mouth-watering fuck-ton of hand references.

A coolio fuck-ton of female arm angle references.
Credit goes to melsrefs (on tumblr). You should flood Mel’s inbox with fanmail so s/he’ll make more of these epic references.
A generous fuck-ton of muscular male abdomen references.
* As always with large images, you gotta reverse-image search ‘em to find the larger size. Sorry about that. It’s the most helpful reference you will find on abs, so far, so I encourage you to search it.
The reason why some people have issues with abs is because, most of the time, the person who’s ripped has 0% fat on ‘em, so it looks ridiculously artificial. You gotta contrast the muscle in a very precise and concise way, and it can look fake, depending on the lighting and corporeal structure of the circumstance. And I say that cautiously, as by “fake” I don’t mean they look disproportionate; it just sometimes doesn’t look like how skin and muscle should appear. (And I know there are some repeated images in this post, but since it’s about something specific, I thought it’d be helpful to have ‘em conglomerated in one place.)
