When I saw this fantastic fanart by Winded-Wolf yesterday, it really struck a chord with me. Like… a lot.

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

carriepika whispered: I just wanted to tell you that your art is absolutely -wonderful- and to thank you for that latest Shadow picture. I've been in a terrible art slump for weeks now and that pic sparked an old AU from years ago so hard that I had to pick up my stylus and draw -right then-. And it worked great rather than frustrated me and I just want to keep drawing him again and... yeah. This is a great big thank you from a fellow artist. =3 ♥

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:

night-excision whispered: Hello there, wonderful work with your art! I was wondering if you could tell me how exactly you animate the moving text on your comic? I've seen it done a couple times now and I'm very curious to know how it is done. 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

image

youll want to make three different layers at first, one for the message or writing youre trying to animate

image

then go ahead and write whatever you want on that first layer. THEN, set the opacity of that one to about thirty or so

image

, 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

image

do this once more, until three separate layers have the same message message written in mostly the same way

image

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

image

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

image

THIS is what youre going to click to save it, instead of just save - otherwise it wont set it as an actual gif

image

you did it

image

image

There you go :>

there it is theres the way around that

snowdie whispered: Shiny Charizardite Y, pallet #64?

i’m so sorry if i ever made you think i’m capable of drawing dragons

Call this an experiment. Reblog if you have OCs that you adore

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

my one complaint about Shadow’s leaked Boom design is that they covered the chest fur

how dare you SEGA

Where’s the leaked design?

hmm let me correct myself

after further inspection, it seems that i was a little hasty, since Shadow’s involvement…

Those are fan renders I think

yeah the sources lead me to think as much ^^;
sorry for the false alarm

after further inspection, it seems that i was a little hasty, since Shadow’s involvement in the Boom universe is still a rumor, though there is apparently some talk of a source confirming it. personally, i’m just going to  wait until i see a more official announcement or screenshot of Shadow until i jump to conclusions again.

anyways, if you just google search “shadow sonic boom,” there’s only a few examples of the design i found the other day (it seems that some pictures were taken down???). the version i saw basically just sonic’s design but the scarf is red and he has athletic tape in other places.
