(Sorry this is so long, tumblr won’t let me un-indent all the things without messing the hyperlinks up BLUH. So press J to skip.)
I just went back through over 900 liked posts and dug out all the art tutorials so i can keep track of them. I guess this might be helpful to some of you guys, so here you go.
Some of these were gutted from posts where the original was deleted and so can’t be linked to in the masterpost list - especially one by Tumblr user melkh who has since either deleted or changed their url, so props to them.
Here we go then!
Alchemy - this is a really fun program. You play around making abstract shapes until you start to see something in them, kind of like a Rorschach test. Then you use the shapes as a base to draw it from.
MyPaint - a pretty decent painting program that also has the benefit of working on Unix systems.
openCanvas 1.1 - I haven’t used openCanvas in years but it was a nice program with a pretty unique feel to it.
ArtRage - Only used this a couple of times donkey’s years ago just before I got oC, but I’ve heard good things about it.
The GIMP - In a similar vein to Photoshop, but free. I couldn’t get on with it when I tried it out a few years ago, but it’s pretty popular and is available on Unix systems and Macs.
Photoshop - Standard painting fare. Probably the most flexible program (particularly the latest versions) but not designed to act in a “natural” way. If you’ve used it for painting versus something like Painter you know what I mean. Who the fuck pays for it though? Google “Photoshop tumblr masterpost” and take your pick.
Paint Tool Sai - Far more affordable and definitely worth paying for if you can. The brushes are very decent (especially when they’ve been tweaked a little), the gui is simple and intuitive, and I dare you to find a program with which making smooth lineart is easier.
Corel Painter - My program of choice for most things. More tools than you could ever possibly use and pretty cheap on a student license, providing that you can prove you’re a student! It’s got a few bugs but if you want realism or a more natural feel than PS or SAI this is the program for you.

If you aren’t sure what you want, or are uncertain of what you can ask for, please let me know. Don’t be afraid to ask any questions you may have. c:
I work in the order I receive commissions. Each piece takes time. I will always finish what I’ve been paid to do, so please be patient. I am happy to send wips when I have them available. I only start after I have received payment.
Please email me at email@example.com with as many details and, if possible, image references as you can. (Be aware this is not my PayPal email. Once we are confirmed on the details of your commission, I will provide my PayPal email to you.)
Thank you everyone! Your support means so much to me. <3
Shit son this is awesome. I need to get my references together. X_X
how come no one ever talks about how hans was about to slice elsa’s fucking head off
its like every character in the movie was g-rated disney, except for hans, hans literally came straight out of game of thrones
His betrayal came out of nowhere, sure, but I got a little bit of a girlboner for Hans because he’s handsome and nuts, which is always a winning combination.
When I saw this in theaters, a bunch of people in the audience literally gasped when he turned out to be a bad guy. It was really funny.
