My wash brush set is now the Paints & Wet Media super set! 100 brushes! Reblog for a chance at a free set!

Get it here!

The old set contained nine brushes. The new set contains one hundred. That’s more than ten times the brushes of the old set! Oils, acrylics, wash brushes, digital concept art brushes, and more, all for Manga Studio 5 and Clip Paint.

NEW Concept Painting brushes designed for digital character and environmental art workflows.

NEW High Res Wash brushes with detailed, high resolution repeating patterns for more convincing digital watercolor work.

And a heap more! I’ve consolidated existing sets and added new brushes to simplify things moving forward. All my paint and wash brushes are now in one place.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes with Panna cotta
Ingredients:
For the cookies:
114g butter
56g dark brown sugar
56g granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
8 ounces (2 cups) all-purpose flour
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ cup chocolate chips
For the panna cotta:
½ cup semi-skimmed milk
½ pack gelatin (scant ½ tbsp)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tbsp granulated sugar
pinch of salt
Method:
For the cupcakes:
Cream together the butter and sugars for 5 minutes. 
Add in the egg and vanilla and beat for another 5 minutes. 
Add in the flour, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips; mix until combined.
Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray.
Press 2 to 3 tablespoons of dough into each muffing cup. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just make sure there are no holes. Put the muffin tin in the freezer.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. When the oven is heated, remove the muffin tin from the freezer.
Bake the cookie cups for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and, using the bottom of a juice or shot glass, press down the cookie cup centres (you’re trying to form the cup shape). 
Place the cookie cups back in the oven for 2 to 5 more minutes.
Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes in the tin before turning them out to cool further.
For the panna cotta:
Pour the semi-skimmed milk into a small saucepan. 
Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and allow to sit for a few minutes. 
Turn the heat on medium-low and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. 
Add in the cream, sugar, and salt, and cook for 5 to 10 more minutes, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved (we don’t want to boil the mixture).
Pour the mixture into the cooled cookie cups (that you’ll want to have on a baking sheet in case of any leakage).
Refrigerate for at least 5 hours.

while this is a cute theme, it’s not intended to be all ages! sexy things are okay, though ultimately it is up to our discretion. just be tasteful!
hi res images are encouraged! 300dpi and up is recommended
please make new art for this! we’d rather have fresh stuff
we are planning to sell printed copies, and digital copies
final page count is not yet known, since this is our first project of this nature! it all depends on submissions. this will also determine pricing.
we are not concrete in artist royalties yet, but we do want to make sure you get a little something! right now what we have in mind is free print copies, as well as splitting money from digital copies. money from print versions would likely go back into print cost.
the deadline for submissions is october first!

Resources for litterial #arttips + #protips !

If anyone who follows me on twitter knows, I kind of hate #arttips and #protips. I hate them so much, I’ve pretty much ran wild on twitter being satirical about it. (ex1, ex2, ex3.) I feel that whenever someone throws out this hash tag, it is meant to be meaningful and helpful while it…

My friend Daniel Fishel has some excellent resources for people just starting out in the illustration world. I figured I’d share some links I’ve also found really helpful: 

1. How To Become a Designer Without Going to Design School Karen created a brilliant teach-yourself-design syllabus; I kind of wish I’d taken a year off before starting college to do this myself had this existed all those years ago. 

2. How to Start Your Illustration Career Nate Williams wrote this really helpful and comprehensive guide to building an illustration career from the ground up; when I was starting out this really helped me. 

3. Why Your Concept Art Portfolio Is Being Ignored Part 1 and 2. I feel like this should be required reading for art school students; it’s not just for fantasy artists either. 

4. Don’t Go To Art School Noah Bradley makes a case for skipping art school and creating your own custom art education for just $10k (considering the price of a private art school, that’s a savings). He has some great ideas here and can certainly be applied in a continuing studies context. Some of his resources are more geared toward fantasy/concept art, but it’s all useful stuff. 

The next few links are just some general reference things I’ve found to be *personally* helpful and aren’t really about becoming an artist, they’re just very handy to have on hand. 

5. World Building Resource Thinking about making a comic or writing a story set in another world? This will help you consider every possible aspect of fleshing it out. Check out this blog’s tags to find even more info about any and every aspect of writing a believable world with believable characters inhabiting it. 

6. Rookie: How to Make a Zine Making a zine is something everyone should do at least once in their life. This tutorial inspired me to make my first zine, Over You Nanook. 

7. Figure and Gesture Drawing Tool One hour every day before anything else. 

8. Citizen Sketcher I personally think everyone should keep a sketchbook, not just artists. This is a great blog about urban sketching that inspired me to get back into it. 

9. Making Comics Master List Faith Erin Hicks was kind enough to compile some recommendations for making comics; I am constantly referring back to it as I wade into the comics world. 

10. Jake Wyatt’s Perspective process. Pretty self explanatory, and very helpful for spatially challenged dyscalculia-havers like myself. 

Hope that helped! Reblog and add on your own useful links if you want :)
