Anonymous asked: Did they utilise the first revision or the finalised version of the Ace of Wands card in the actual deck, by the way?
Ah, they went with the first revision! It printed better and provided the better end product. Cool by me personally, it means better cards.
Anonymous asked: Those digital watercolor pieces you're doing are turning out really nice, are they being made in SAI?
I’ll probably release the brushes/explain the technique I’m using once I’m satisfied with it, everything is still sort of being worked out.
Part II of requests and my journey to figure out believable digital watercolor, tumblr user spicypoop’s OC Robert. Sorry dude, you just get a boring naked headshot because he ended up being my “how the hell do I do skin and hair” test. I’m kinda getting there, but the wet edges on his face are just a little too hard for good watercolor, I think? They looked good at first but the more I look at them they seem just a bit too harsh, especially for the paper texture I’m using. The ones around his mysteriously unpainted shoulder/arm are way more accurate.
Request number one out of four, tumblr user gaythan’s Robodile Space Pirate.
I’m trying to make a set of brushes, settings, and textures that imitate brush inking, watercolor, and gel pen highlights respectably well. I think this is a decent start, but I still have a lot of kinks to work out! It’s half tools and half technique, and I have to keep reminding myself “no, you can do that on a computer but it’d work differently on paper.”
Yo tumblrs it’s been awhile! I’ve been makin’ my way in life, working on ~secret projects~, and also playing a lot of videogames. Too many videogames. Dang, man.
Anyway, I need to get back into posting draws and I’m not ready to share my projects quite yet, so ya’ll know what time it is? That’s right, it’srequest o’ clock. Here’s the rules:

I’m working through my detective/mystery suggestions in order of suggestion and all I have to say from Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is I want Neuro and The Riddler to have some sort of relationship
friendship, romantic, rivalry, whatever
It would be a beautiful trainwreck.

I don’t even know what to say about this song. It took me more than an hour to track down because, as far as I’m aware, this is the only recording in existence and it was uploaded by JD to sendspace four years ago and posted on the mountain-goats.com forum, where sharing is, uh, a complicated business. I think it’s a shame to let a gem like this disappear, though, so here it is.
