Thinking in 3D
A number of my watchers asked me to turn this journal into a news article:  
What I'd like to talk about is a trick that has helped me to become better at 2D art.  I'm sure many of you have heard that it's always better to draw from real life and from a model, and that tracing doesn't help you learn, but I don't know if anyone's ever explained why.  I don't think anyone has ever told me.  So I'm going to discuss how to make the best of different reference resources in order to get more out of drawing practice by thinking of your figure(s) in three dimensions.
When we make a drawing, painting, or any kind of 2D artwork, we're breaking down a 3D image onto a 2D plane.  Even cartoons are representing a 3D object; it's just been taken further from a realistic painting to its barest structure.  
This is an important thing to keep in mind while practicing drawing because it becomes a habit, especially for those people who like to dr

Lighting your artwork
Light is color. Painting light means depending on colors - how you handle them, how well-tuned your instincts are, and looking. Unfortunelty, understanding how to paint light means understanding how to paint in general. It is all connected.
hibbary wrote a terrific article called Thinking in 3D that I highly recommend everyone who want to improove on their artworks to read - its content very much applies to how you have to think when it comes to painting light. Light is three dimensional, it moves and bounces and hits shapes at various angles depending on where it comes from. If you do not think about this in a three dimensional room, your will not be able to grasp the idea of light and how to put it into a picture. In a way you migth say that the key to understanding light and putting it into your paintings, is to think in 3D.
I've tried to analize the different parts of painting with different kind of light, to find a red t

Hey all! :D

I am indeed still of this world, just to keep you in the loop ;) I'm definitely improving health/energy-wise and moodwise, even though I've also been diagnosed with hypothyroidism! (Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which is possibly one of the nicest autoimmune disorders out there, if it can be called such a thing.) So I had basically cornered the market in "illnesses that make you tired and sad", which explains a few things. xD

I might try to just chuck up the last few arts from the last few years I've been AFK, rather than worrying about it, and try to make this lil place a nice spot for me to be again rather than stressful (my own doing lmfao) C:

If you're around, let me know how you've been! I can't promise lengthy and brainful replies, but I am interested! <3

Late reply is late :B Yeah, I was at the Expo with Robin on the Saturday. We ended up at the drawing tables several times, and I think I was doing some of the MLPs in realism or something xDDD I don't know if what you saw was me though. If it was, you should've come over and said hi!
