Welcome to DorkToTheMax's art blog!
This blog is NSFW. I like porn and I like to draw a lot of it.
Commissions are currently closed, but will be open again soon.
Digital Art: My primary software to draw in is Paint Tool SAI, with occasional Photoshop touches.. While I've been doing digital work regularly for a few years now, I am still adjusting from the lifetime of traditional art. I don't have a fancy tablet because I believe that a tablet's worth/brand name does not make you a good artist. My tablet is gigantic, low-cost, efficient and has served me well for years, and hopefully for a few more.
Traditional Art: Pencils are my favorite media to work with, closely followed by charcoal, conte, and acrylic paints. Most of my traditional art is more detailed than my digital work because of my familiarity and comfort. It also tends to be more gritty and dark. Under normal circumstances, I don't offer traditional art commissions, and anything you see done with traditional media is personal.
Critique: Constructive critique is welcome and encouraged (but don't just be a kiss-ass). I am trying to better myself and expand my skills, so any advice that can help is appreciated. If you have nothing productive to say, then don't say it. It just makes you look like a dick.
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
