I'm Liz, and I draw a comic called Adrastus. On this blog you're going to find art tutorials, robots, stuff about my comic and Manga Studio, and lots of feminism. I'm one of those feminists who believes that women should be equal to men, not superior. I want equal representation in media and hate ridiculous over-sexualization of women.

I curse sometimes. If you want to see my fandom stuff, that blog is titled feelsandships.

so i finally decided to make a post dedicated to advice for coloring and shading! hopefully this is will help some people with their coloring because i know this is most people’s weak points in drawing. but don’t worry!! limlim is here to help!!!!!

i let people on twitter suggest what i should cover, so some things might be a bit random. here’s the topics covered (in order):

  1. Choosing colors for shading and highlighting
  2. Use of different layer settings (overlay/multiply) and adjustments
  3. Color choices for red/blood
  4. How to color a kappa (kinda goes over my drawing process too)
  5. Shading hair sorta

this only covers some of the things people asked since i got kinda tired of talking about colors. hopefully, i’ll make a second post in the future

i should point out that just reading this won’t make you better at coloring or anything unless you put these things into practice. experiment helps a lot, too. maybe you don’t like what i’m doing, so you can tweak what i do a bit to achieve what YOU want in coloring. these aren’t set rules or anything, just what i think and do when coloring.

also, this is pretty tl;dr so make sure you read this when you’re not tired or sleepy!!! (i’m serious. i don’t think i would want to read something this long either)

Chapter Fifteen The Doorway Sarah contemplates the doorway in to Adrastus’ cockpit. Does she dare go inside?
This chapter’s pages are being colored by Byron Wilkins! He’s a cool dude, you should check his site out!
As I put on the blog last Friday, my Yiynova tablet monitor died last week. At the urging of several people, I have put up a GoFundMe campaign to help get a new one. I’m also selling things from my personal collections (vintage toys, collectibles, books, movies, etc) to add to the pool as well. I’m shooting for a small 13 inch Cintiq. In the interim I’m doing my best at inking on my Surface so there’s not a delay in posting pages. If anyone is interested in contributing to the GoFundMe, there are some rewards at a few donation amounts, like sketch commissions, full-color commissions, and original paintings.

Deanmon Original Acrylic painting now up on Ebay!  This listing is part of my funds to get a new tablet to work on my comics and other art with, since mine died last night. It’s a 16x20 painting of Jensen Ackles/Dean Winchester in acrylic paint on canvas paper.

4 days left on this auction!

I’ve decided to make Tablet Shaming a thing. 
Drive to help me get a new tablet

I’ve decided to reblog this and give an update on the drive for my new tablet.
My initial goal was funded in six hours yesterday. I was then encouraged by friends to up the goal and aim for another model up than what I’d originally decided on, which I have done. I have a tablet I can use in the interim, and several people who have wanted to help me out haven’t had a chance to chip in yet, so I’m going to keep the drive open for a little while and see if I can hit the second goal (by either donations or by continuing to sell items from my personal collections on ebay and such).
I’m completely blown away by the fact that this was funded so quick, and I will never get over the generosity of some people! I’m thankful, and humbled, for all the emotional support that I have gotten while being in this stressful time. Last night was the first time I haven’t had insomnia in days.
Anyway, that was all I wanted to say!
