Everblue is one of my favourite webcomics, to the point where I actually made fan art for it! I don’t usually draw fan art or get a lot of ideas for fan art.
I drew Ten in the style of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, taking my two favourite ocean world stories and mixing them together….
Omg, this is awesome. Thank you so much! :D
I loved Wind Waker too, so your fanart made my day - I especially like the dialogue in the bottom picture. Aaah! *__*
Updated opinions on some of the popular drawing/art/imaging apps on the market today. Sorry for the lack of updates lately, my new job and skillshare have been demanding of my time!
Description from DA:
NOTE: These star ratings are pit only against each other relatively, not every app on the market!
NOTE2: My opinions on COREL PAINTER are NOT based on the latest version, X3, which I have not used yet.
I keep seeing lots of debates about what program should be used for what. This is different than the Filetype tutorial I did, where this is dealing with the type of work being done, versus export purpose.
I’m not claiming this chart I made is gospel, but it should give a pretty good idea on what the strengths are of each particular program are based on some basic needs and parameters.
(Of course, your mileage may vary on these ratings.)
A very nice and in-depth comparison of the various art programs out there. Super useful if you’re wondering which program to get for specific purposes.
I’m not quite sure about exactly how much it is they take out each time, but it sits around 5% and seems to get lower as the price of the commission goes up.
- $20 Commission - PayPal takes out $0.88, which is 4.4%
- $10 Commission - PayPal takes out $0.59, which is 5.9%
Edit: It may also be a set base fee plus a certain percentage, which would explain the discrepancy here. (thanks for the info, splinteredshard!)
It’s an almost negligible amount either way, so I actually don’t compensate for it in my pricing and I mostly just price my commissions to end in 5s or 0s ‘cause they look nicer XD.
I hope that helps!
A preview of the next Patreon wallpaper.
I got this idea in my head and didn’t want to forget about it so I quickly put this together. This one should be up on the Patreon page sometime next month :)
You may remember an old vote incentive where Luna seemed to dislike dresses - and she sort of does - but it’s more of an aversion to long flowy cloth than “ew, girly clothes” or something like that XD. Anything that’s likely to get caught on something while she’s trying to work or move around she’ll avoid. There’s actually a story behind that as well :3
:D :D I’m so happy right now. Just finished the first Patreon wallpaper! Here’s a preview that’s less than one third of the whole thing.
If you want to get this and any future wallpapers, you can choose the $5 or up option on Everblue’s Patreon page. I’ll also be offering this particular wallpaper to people who do a one-time donation of $5 or more through PayPal as well :) (the donate button is on top of the sidebar on the site).
It’s a widescreen wallpaper in 1920x1080, 1600x900, and 1280x720 flavors :B. It contains some minor spoilers and hints at things to come in Volume 1. Larger resolutions are also available on request.
Anyway, I’ll get right back to finishing page 11!
Almost done ;^;. Here’s a tiny preview of the first wallpaper the $5 and up Patreon supporters will be getting :). The full thing will have a few more spoilers and easter eggs for the events of Volume 1.
Sorry the next page is taking so long. The response to Everblue’s Patreon page has been awesome so far and I just wanted to make sure the supporters get their reward as soon as possible.
I’m thinking of offering this wallpaper to one-time PayPal donators as well - I’ll have more details on that when I update the comic with page 11 :3.
Thanks for your patience during this recent bumpy road for Everblue, everybody!
In the meantime, try Xkit’s Outbox add-on. :)
Oh, thank you thank you! This is awesome and reminds me of “Missing e” which stopped working for me a while ago :)
I immediately tested it by replying to your comment, and it works, haha :D. The message features look like just what I wanted too, and it’s nice to have something to work with while we wait for official features from Tumblr XD. For anyone who’s curious, you can download the Xkit extensions here.
Here’s something that really gets me every time with Tumblr’s message system. More often than not I’ll look at my messages after a few months and wonder whether or not I’ve actually responded to some of them. Sometimes Tumblr will remove messages that you’ve responded to, but other times they seem to stick around and I’m not quite sure why. I’ve probably sent double replies to people in the past just in case XD.
A Sent folder could fix all of that frustration. The ability to add custom folders for messages or organize them by Read/Unread filters could certainly help tidy things up as well.
