Hope it helps some people who were wondering how i painted from a blob instead of with a line art or sketch first. Basically I’m sketching as I’m painting.
This is a technique for when you want to focus on the whole picture before zooming in on the details first. It helps if you’re someone who finds themselves concentrating too much on one area of a drawing only to zoom out and find that perfectly drawn mouth doesn’t exactly match up to the rest of the features. It also helps with wanting to put the focus on a certain area of a painting and keeping everything else soft. You can put indicators of where you want certain features to go, but try not to go too much into detail all at once in the beginning; keep things loose and fast and tighten up later for specific areas.
Got some asks about watercolor!
1. To Novavega:
I use both but I use cold press more often because I like the look of the texture. If I’m going to do very detailed work with a lot of lines and little spots of color then I’ll use hot press watercolor paper though.
2. To Anon:
I’m glad you like my paintings! I’ll be putting my process under a read more since there are a lot of images.

someone who hasn’t seen Dangan Ronpa, explain this picture
The ultimate ddr master was challenged to one final match before he went into retirement. His moves were so funky fresh his opponent literally burned out. Onlookers captured the last moment of the dance off and fucking stood there as his opponent’s flesh melted.
