Hey everyone, I'm Emily and I make an electric superteen webcomic called Blitz Phoenix!
I do mostly comic art, but occasionally post stand-alone illustrations. #introductions
I should put chains in this pic, that would be cool
<an hour later>
I remember why I never draw chains anymore
Look his hair looks dumb but it's still gotta be dumb on MY TERMS and that was TOO RED for me
This picture isn’t actually interesting enough to warrant all the posts I’m making about it, but since I got it figured out, here’s what I was actually trying to post, haha
The color difference isn’t as huge here. But it was enough that I kept looking at it and thinking “no, that’s wrong, and it’s ugly.”
So uh lesson learned, double check it’s not in CYMK before uploading.
The CYMK one doesn't look bad (which is good news?), but I want Terry's hair to be obnoxious, lol.
LOL okay, someone made a good point about RGB/CYMK - I was recently playing with CYMK exporting for something and I forgot that the updated version of CSP saves your old export settings now, so I didn't realize it was still set to that when I exported this last night.
So that means the file I was comparing to wasn't the right colors EITHER
What I was actually going for was more of a middle-ground between the two. Masto must convert uploads to RGB? Maybe? And that overshot what I wanted.
Alright so I'm not sure what's going on, was about to try uploading this picture again but the preview is still super saturated.
Left is how it uploads to masto, right is the actual file I'm trying to upload. No idea why, really bummed.
I originally turned myself into a snake with robot limbs based on a prompt, but I'm just rolling with it at this point. Minus hat sketch included.
I wonder if that's because I used the delete & repost feature?
Well I already reposted it once, I'm not going to do it again
lmao why does the saturation in that pic look 200% higher here than when I posted it on twitter
Reposting because I meant to post it as public, sorryyyyyyyyyyy
Oh shoot did I post that as not listed?
Ugh I hate tootdon
This came in the mail yesterday but I was so angry about work I didn't say anything
I'm gonna fill it with colored pencils
Remember when I said I wasn’t going to work on comics tonight
lol on second thought, my wrists were kinda bugging me when I was out catching Pokemon today, so I think I'm going to do... nothing, tonight.
Maybe some stardew valley but kinda tempted to just lay here and not move
Kinda tempted to stream tonight, since I haven't done it in a while and I need to work on pages. I don't think I'll get as much done this weekend as I wanted, which sucks, but I also didn't take pokemon community day into consideration.
hi i'm rhi!! i'm a beginning artist from the uk living in austria. i started in january and mostly draw lizards and similar stuff! my main account is @g!
on the internet i pretend to be a gold dust day gecko, and my favourite pokémon are salandit and heliolisk! (big surprise there)
i don't usually use this many exclamation marks!!!
I'll test them better this Saturday in class, I haven't been able to really get Sarkas' color right with colored pencils yet (and that pic is honestly just kinda sloppy.)
But since you sharpen these pencils less, they should last a whole lot longer than the Prismacolors, so that's pretty cool!
But also, tried to use similar techniques here... so I put down my yellow first. With the top one, this mostly just guaranteed a lot of ugly yellow space. Whereas with the bottom one, I was able to blend the yellow and reduce the area how I was expecting.
Decided to just post a brand comparison, via Charmeleon.
Top is the brand I randomly bought a while back (Straedtler) and bottom is the ones I had to buy for class (Prismacolor Premiere).
I used comparable colors for each, HOWEVER i accidentally used one extra shade of dark red on the bottom one, because I thought I had a comparable one for the top set, but didn't. (this only affects bottom jaw and neck.)
Top set doesn't really blend, and you can still see most of the individual strokes.
I make an electric superteen comic called Blitz Phoenix and sometimes draw things besides my characters.
