so when they released that SB trailer with Shadow a while ago, i apparently tried to doodle the new design and promptly forgot about it… but i just found them and oh man.
sooo if he’s not that loveable, carefree, hawaiian-shirt-wearing-nerd, then Boom!Shadow - at least in my mind - is a grumpy old man. there is no in-between. (see pics under the cut)
THIS IS WHY I HAVEN’T BEEN UPLOADING
alt cd design?? i dunno, but wow i love these guys l-/
I’ve been in a really bad art slump for the past few weeks and her Hawaiian Shadow sparked into an old AU of mine so hard I barely knew what to do with myself! As some of my friends can attest, since I was flailing about it at them.
The best part is that this happened! Art! Yay! Because Hawaiian Shadow is the best frigging thing ever and I will love it till the end of time.
Also finally attempting to draw the design I have in my head for Mobian headphones. They still need a little work, I think… but they came out okay in this.
It’s amazing how much a two week slump can make you feel rusty… Also go follow Winded Wolf. Her art is great! =D ♥
ohhHHH THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER AND LOOK HEADPHONES THAT MAKE SENSE
Oh wow, that’s awesome! That picture was honestly a doodle that got out of hand, but I’m glad that it was able to motivate you! I’m trying to doodle my way out of my slump, so thanks for the wonderful words!!! I can’t wait to see what you draw! c:
aha its a pretty lazy process but hell yeah lets go
first up im using photoshop, so although the steps are probably pretty similar in other drawing programs, they might not transfer exactly like this
youll want to make three different layers at first, one for the message or writing youre trying to animate
then go ahead and write whatever you want on that first layer. THEN, set the opacity of that one to about thirty or so
, and on the layer right above it, just write the same thing right over the top of it. its alright if the lines dont match up EXACTLY, but youll obviously want to try to get it pretty close
do this once more, until three separate layers have the same message message written in mostly the same way
then theres probably a way around this, but i just bring it to image ready, where i can actually save it as a working gif
then the animation ! youll have one frame per layer, each one set at however fast youll want them to change - i usually set them at 0.2 but you can mess with it until it looks the way you want
THIS is what youre going to click to save it, instead of just save - otherwise it wont set it as an actual gif
you did it
There you go :>
there it is theres the way around that
i’m so sorry if i ever made you think i’m capable of drawing dragons
