Anon asked for some advice about eyes, and I… may have gone a bit overboard, ahahaha. I hope it turned out at least a little worthwhile!

This is a great guide!  I’d like to make one small note though—when drawing the pupil in profile in a realistic style, it should be slightly recessed in the iris.



But sometimes it just works to have the pupil right next to the cornea in a cartoony style, so it’s up to you for whatever you’re going for.



Sharing another tutorial for those interested. :)  (I know this isn’t about the female form, but I get a lot of requests for resources on drawing people in general, so I thought for those who might be interested, I’d share it in case they haven’t seen it reblogged yet. :) )

List of tutorials that helped me with environmental painting:
“How to make your own Perspective Grid in PS” <—- this one is the best thing I’ve ever discovered. Srsly CHECK IT OOOOUUUUT!
Snuffen’s Background Tutorial P1More or less ALL tutorials by Griffsnuff is awesome, so make sure to check out the rest of them!
More or less ALL tutorials made by AquaSixio!

List of youtube channels that also helped and inspired me:

FZDSCHOOL - More or less one of the most known concept art-related resources I know on youtube. It’s great to sit and draw and just listen to the talking.

SinixDesign- This guy is also great! He has some design workshops ever now and then where the viewers can send in their stuff for critique! very encouraging and inspiring!

moatddtutorials- This guy is more into drawing than painting, and has a more cartoony style. He has interesting methods when it comes to perspective. And he also challenge himself in some of his videos (the engine block video is a great example of this)

foxOrian- Also known here on dA for his awesome perspective and composition tutorials. He has a youtube channel where he posts some videos that might be interesting as well.

rebabblin’ this for when I get a chance to read it in it’s entirety.

pah! my skin palettes are no where near perfect. I wish. D:

I’m not sure if this would be of help, but here’s sort of a quick step-by-step guide of sorts. also my main brushes I use + their settings. I literally just block colors and shapes in with my “paint” brush, blend them around some, and color drop. that’s it…haha.

This is like showing a magician’s tricks but omg yes.

According to a study from the University of Washington, the rift between healthy grub and junk food is wider than it’s ever been. Researchers were able to buy 2,000 calories of junk food for $3.52 — that’s an entire day’s caloric intake — where nutritious foods cost them a whopping $36 for the same 2,000 calories.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Food In The USA (via trashysnacks)

So, you know, STFU forever about “it’s cheaper to eat healthy LOL poor people don’t get how money works!”

(via thebicker)

So, the post sources a buzzfeed page. The buzzfeed page does not source the study. The buzzfeed page is an ad for Naked Juice. Naked Juice is owned by parent company Pepsi. Pepsi produces some of the worst junk food in the world. 

The article the ad is claiming to source is here.

The journal it’s published in is an online-only journal with a .com url that has an impact rating of 3. Also, the study does not look at the cost of food, but what individuals in different economic brackets pay for their food, then uses specious reasoning to justify their claim that because rich people pay more for their food, and are healthier, than healthy food must be more expensive. No actual survey of food prices was done by researchers, they simply surveyed people asking how much they spend on food. 

The idea that buying 2,000 healthy calories will cost you $36 is ludicrous.

This has nothing to do with whether or not healthy food is more expensive, I’m just constantly blown away by tumblr’s mob-mentality inability to fact check.
