SO I JUST FOUND THIS REALLY USEFUL TOOL THAT ALLOWS YOU TO VISUALLY COMPARE THE SIZES OF THINGS

drtanner-sfw:

And if you’re trying to accurately convey, say, the sizes of characters standing next to each other in art where you know their heights but are having a bit of difficulty visualising it confidently, or if you’d like to know how tall a Jaeger actually is compared to its pilots, for example, it’s incredibly helpful.

Take a look for yourself!

The best part is that if you click the link for advanced mode, you can add your own pictures to make it even easier! Pop in the URL for each image and the dimensions you need for each one, and it’ll scale them up or down next to each other for you, like this:

In this example I took the lengths of Saronja and little baby Gat from their profiles and put them in to see how big they are side by side, because I’m going to be drawing these guys in a moment and I’m too fuzzyheaded to get this shit right by myself. Now it’s easy to see what I’m supposed to be doing!

Isn’t that great?

I’m tagging this #flight rising so that my other dragon game buddies can get a kick out of seeing their dragons next to each other at their actual sizes. Have fun, guys!

Art Block Execution # 24 Remix Your Style 

It’s a well known fact that every artists have a style.  From different shapes and colors, to how people punctuate notes in a song. 

Now its time to try a different style.

Take a character you own [ or a character you like ] and redraw them in different styles.  Create a different style of your own. Mimmick, twist,  reduex. Always fond of simple storybook styles? How about a lot of detail? what was your favorite thing to look at/ read growing up?

  This is similar to our 8th ABE. But instead of drawing yourself, you’re drawing someone/something else.

Again, if you do not draw you’re welcome to practice other styles in your medium!

Difficulty: 4/5 Breaking out of the box can be hard if you’re used to sticking to one style.  But we believe in you!

How does this kill art block?: Think of it as stretching a muscle you didnt know you had! It helps you push out of your normal box and see the artistic world through rose colored lenses! Also, trying out different styles gives you a chance to admire what makes your style so unique!

When something doesn’t look right, but you can’t figure out why, make a copy of your layer and try some of these tricks.  Staring too long at a piece without breaks is often where I “kill” a piece and lose scope of the work as a whole.  Thanks to letsplaygods for the supersaturate trick.

I already flip and value check often. Though those other things seem like pretty niffty tricks to keep in mind when i’m spending more than 4 hours straight on a piece//working on something from start to finish.

Here is what we want you to do:
Make a list. Make a list of between 3 to 5 things that fit into one or more of the following catagories:
A: Things that you want to be/can be/dont feel like you are
B: Things that you like about yourself
C: Things that you know are true about yourself, but you have a hard time remembering.
And then put those things somewhere you will see them.
Roo had a friend once whose therapist prescribed a similar thing, and she had little rocks on her dresser that said things like “Beautiful” and “Strong” on them, and she was supposed to look at them everyday.
You can do something like that, or something like the poster Roo made, or something unique to you!
What This is Trying to Achieve:
The idea is that you have traits you like, but that maybe you forget about, and having them around you (or maybe not having them around you, but just working on something that reminds you of them for a few hours) will help you gain more self-confidence in what you already have going for you!
We know that positive self-talk doesn’t work for everyone, though- and that for some people it’s actually counter-productive! If you have a technique that accomplishes the same basic thing that this does, but in a different way, we would love to hear or see  it!
We really like to see your participation, but we understand that the MHNJ projects can be sort of personal! If you feel like sharing your Note To Self, you can post a picture in the comments. If you have a tumblr or a twitter, you can share it with us there! We are on twitter @tixnroo and our tumblr tags are #mhnj #mental health no jutsu, and #TixnRoo
