gaiax2 sent: Hmm... Do you start working on the titlecard of a JonTron episode once he gives you the episode title? For example, how long did it take to craft the ...*ahem*... Titenic titlecard?

I 'should' do it right after he announces it. But I don't. Sometimes I wait too long.

Titenic was made in 3 hours, the day before the episode launched.

This is the most complicated titlecard I’ve made! I had fun with this one though! My biggest inspiration was the EOS Patrol minigame in Kirby Mass Attack. Can you find all the references? ; )

Take a minute out of your day,

to check out Kevin Fagaragan! :D

Just have a brief look at his gallery! It brings a smile to my face whenever he has made new stuff. He’s got one of those styles that I’d love to see animated. He relaunched his blog in May and that’s when I found his work!

Go check it out!

Every couple of days, I plan on giving a shoutout to some artists i’ve met on tumblr that need some more love.

I hope you won’t mind. please don’t be disappointed if you won’t be mentionned. It will probably be because you’re either too much of a close friend or well known. It would be biased if I had to feature close friends.

Please check out their page. If you like what you see, folow them!

Speaking of older pixel art

This is what happened last time I revised an old sprite.

Thank god I fixed that one

What a difference a year makes. I thought I was stagnating. I can’t believe it was exactly a year ago.

Anonymous sent: Do have any advice to give posing and for drawing faces? I've been having trouble trying to make the characters I draw to look more expressive and different from each other.

Poses, sure I can give you some advice!

  • Vary your poses as much as possible. I hate drawing a picture in a pose i’ve already drawn before. I get OCD over that sometimes
  • Use figurines you can pose freely!
  • Draw the exact same pose but at a sliiiiiightly different angle!
  • Practice mirroring the poses without just flipping them. Manually redraw a pose from scratch facing a different direction. Then compare. ;) he he he he.  It will highlight both your strengths and weaknesses. Try it!

… can’t say much for drawing faces however, as I struggle with that myself (sure, they turn out ok, but I spend a fucking hour on a face alone)

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? :)

Thought I’d let you all know I started an ask.fm account. I almost always privately reply to asks on Tumblr, but if you want me to publicly post answers, go ask me literally anything over there!
