Quick sketch from From Up On Poppy Hill, which we finally went to see today. Done with @FRENDEN’s fantastic photoshop brushes, which I’m obsessed with (you can buy them here!)
I also included the B&W version, which I kinda like better (…and then a process gif, because apparently you needed to see the part where I accidentally started inking on the wrong layer)
The movie itself was really good! Sadly the theater we saw it at had some issues where the color looked off for the last half of the film. When we asked about it afterwards, the manager said they use the DVD version because they would otherwise not be able to air the film (??) But technical difficulties aside, the story in Poppy Hill felt in tune with the politics and surge of student protestors during postwar Japan, and the desire for rapid modernization versus trying to build upon an existing foundation of history.
Finally compiled all of my speed paints from March. All done in Photoshop.

progress pics: one, two
a quick note about the gradient map for colors:
I made some fanart for Gravity Rush and turned it into a wallpaper! I spent a lot of time fussing over this so I hope you like it. You can download various sizes if you follow the link to my blog.
p.s. kudos to Nilah for giving me pointers on some problem areas ;A;
a graphic for my new wordpress blog (coming soon)
…in which I attempt to practice colors. one is the protagonist from the amazing show Kids on the Slope and the other is just a random scene inspired by a Dear Creatures dress. mostly I just wanted to mess with color since I am terrible at it unggg
New Essential Illustration Brushes V3 Extended!
Hey guys, recompiled a new version of my default brush set. Click the link above or wherever to download them from DeviantART. Here’s some copy/pasted info:
Version 3! What’s New?
- This is now an extended version of the older V2 set, (from 1.8MB now to 32MB,) containing the brushes I use often in my day to day Photoshop drawing and painting.
- Things to note: a few brushes have been removed because I never used them due to their rather uselessness. The “Knife” brushes in particular have been removed, and replaced by “Broad Tip 1 & 2” under the Flats Set.
- A fantastic painting set “Triangle Brushes” by Joshua Jones has been added to the Painting section, and I’ve been using these on almost everything since I found them.
- Also new are a bunch of sponge / spatter brushes I’ve been using often as texture bases to painting. Useful!
- The Chalk brushes are also a pretty essential part of Photoshop in general, so I’ve added a section just for them.
