A wicked fuck-ton of feline anatomy references.
[From various sources]
!! Woah guys! Pixelovely’s new tools are finally out, one for hands & feet, and one for faces!
There’s now 429 photos of hands & feet, and 314 photos of faces. Dang!!
This is super cool news and I certainly can’t wait to start using them haha
This is the first time I’ve seen this, but whoa! What a great resource for people who are learning on their own. I’m gonna have to try it out — I definitely need practice with gesture drawings.
THANK EVERY GOD
I’ve figured out how to set specific rotation points in AI (it doesn’t stay there if I switch tools/selection) AND I’ve set up dots on the joints, so when i bring them into another program I can line it up right. With these two new things, I can make alterations that are DESPERATELY needed to fix the limbs.
I was told I shouldn’t be allowed to be a witch because I am too cutesy & that doesn’t belong in witchcraft or paganism.
Well that’s entirely inaccurate. C’mon, let’s dress up as sweet lolitas and make enchanted glitter jars just to spite whoever coughed up such a lie!
Nonsense, absolute nonsense I say! I’m freaking adorable and I’m a heck of a witch! Pfffft to whoever told you that.
Too cute to be a witch? Be a magical girl
I love the shortcuts I know in photoshop. “Oh I need to make this look a tad more hand drawn” *increase line selection, fill. Whirl effect* “That looks great!”
And the progress thing.
I think I’ll leave this now and do something else…
A glorious fuck-ton of perspective angle references (per request).

Man guys all of my artist friends and anyone who draws or anything should get a wysp account
Cause its a website based around artists and not only can you post your art on it, it also has a place where you can practice!!! drawing!!
look at this shiit
heres the practice page!!!!!1!
and did i mention this is all free?
ITS ALL FREE
so yeah go make an account my artist friends
Art Corgi is a site for artists to organize their commissions and sell their commissions in a safe and friendly environment.
They seem to be really interested in taking care of the artists that use the website, making sure they get paid and don’t get screwed over by customers who don’t pay or try and take advantage to artists.
They’re launch day is today! So make sure you guys check it out!
Actually, Please do not sign up for this site.
When it comes to the artist’s work in regards to copyright and liscensing:
The copyright of all art you create and sell through ArtCorgi will remain with you. Your clients will be given a worldwide, fully-paid, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-commercial, perpetual license with the right to reproduce, distribute, transmit, create derivative works of, and publicly display their commissions for personal purposes.
What this means is that while you can keep the ‘original piece’ all other rights regarding the piece are not solely yours any more.
The client gets to sell your work, print it on any merch they would like, reprint it, make as many copies, alter it.
This is not a benefit for the artist, this is a benefit for the client only. This is a bad ‘contract’.
A client could commission you to do a drawing a bitchin’ mermaid. So you do and get paid some where between 75-300$. Sounds great right? Maybe that for you equals in at like 10$ or more an hour! ….
but here’s the kicker after you’ve agreed to it…
The client who paid you 300$ for that mermaid, can take that picture, and sense they now own the liscense for the work, and you agreed, they can now while they can’t sell the liscense ( thats what nontransferable means) They can place it on shirts and sell it, for 15$, which adds up! they can do this any where in the world, and they can do whatever they want with your work and never have to even mention you again, let alone pay you a proper price when used like that.
THe clients do not have to state what their uses for the art is going to be, but to put this into perspective.
Art that would go apparel (so say, for redistrubtuion) regardless of royalities, Runs at between 1,800-6,000$ (according to Pricing and Ehtical Guidelines handbook) and that’s not even getting into royalities or reselling copies of the work. Here, they can print it on a apparel ( the client ) sell, it, and only have to pay you around 75 - 300$
and thats all they have to pay you.
Now, I get that there is a difference between people intending to use the work for just personal use/rp use whatever, and people wanting to make a profit from not paying the artist a decent wage.
That said, Please do not use this site. I can’t stop you, but it is a very bad idea and could up causing you to cut yourself off from making more than what is essentially chump change.
especially in a world were ripping the artist off is so commonplace its becoming increasingly hard to make a living as a professional free lance illustrator.
Welp :/ Guess not.
