don’t worry, your english turned out fine, dude.
as a foreword of warning,
it is best that you don’t use this post as a standalone tutorial,
instead, try to use it as a study aid to help you make sense of real-life references.
(same applies for any decent “art tutorial” out there, really. :p)

she didn’t say ‘because i am the best woman there was!’
she doesn’t claim to be ‘not like other women’
she doesn’t villify other women and suggest that she’s an exception
she calls dat shit out

4 Steps to Turn Your Sketch Into Linework (sorta) in Photoshop
I didn’t learn of this trick until…a few years ago? Hope you guys find it helpful! (I’m using CS5, so I’m not sure how different it is on other versions)
1) get your pic! (here’s a photo that’s been filtered to hell)
2) Image > Adjustments > Desaturate
3) Image > Adjustment > Levels: toggle the two knobs at the end to adjust the white/black levels (and experiment with the middle if you want) until you get something that’s basically black/white
4) Select > Color Range: use the eyedropper to select the background color (white). Click okay and delete! (You should make sure your layer isn’t locked either)
So basically it selects everything in the color range you’ve selected (the white) and you can freely delete it. and you wind up with a sort of lineart??
If it’s not a clean selection, you can just set the layer to “multiply” if it’s black.
Or you can even skip step 4 and just set the layer to multiply! I mean, this method isn’t perfect/foolproof for all scenarios, but hope you can find some use in it :)

Raven Belt Tutorial
Okay since I’m going to be doing a Raven (Teen Titans) cosplay I figured I would show my way of making the belt since there aren’t many out there.
Lets get started!
Alright so to make my gems I actually used some sculpting clay. I was going to try and make the resin gems but it was super…

Anonymous said: I know you get so many questions, but I really fell in love with your raven cosplay and since I had been planning on being Raven for NYCC, I was hoping that I could get some tips on where I can purchase the items needed to make the costume or maybe how to make the belt and such? If you can that would be great! thank you so much :) You're beautiful by the way
Thank you :)
The cape was a Simplicity pattern that I altered just a bit. My hair dye was from Punky Color. The tights were from American Apparel. For the leotard I went to an amazing shop in Hollywood called Trashy Lingerie. The gems on the belt I made out of resin. The backs were fimo.

I just started making some references for myself, but got carried away hahah… ha :’D
I figured I’d share. I’m hoping to make a series of these things for all the drawing bits that give me trouble: woman torsos, hands, wings, different body types, etc.
I hope you also find them useful!
