How to draw a stick figure - a real one by LadyAway
How to draw a stick figure - a real one
I forgot to post it here on April Fool's, which is a shame, because it was quite funny. Anyway, if you struggle with drawing a human silhouette, check out this beginner-friendly tutorial:

The Secret to Realistic Painting: Master Value by LadyAway
The Secret to Realistic Painting: Master Value
Are your colors lifeless when you're painting in grayscale first? Or maybe they're garish and mismatched when you paint without grayscale? Do you wonder why some pictures, though very sloppy and chaotic, look far more realistic than your refined, detailed pieces? It's all based on one thing—value.

We all like to bring our ideas to life, but it's hard to do it without learning how to draw them first. How to balance practice and fun?

On the left you can see the first version of this picture. I liked how the fur turned out, but its color... it looked so fake. It was supposed to be a white cat, and I was sure subsurface scattering should have something to do with its shading. So I tried once again, this time using a reference for a white cat, bloody fur, and cat eyes. It made so much difference!

The point here is: you can't draw well something you've never drawn/paid attention to before. Don't even try! Instead, use your inspiration to learn something useful. Create a quick sketch of your idea, and then find references for all the elements, even those that seem obvious. And don't just copy the references—try to understand the rules hidden in them. This way you'll draw for fun, and practice at the same time!

So, whenever you draw something and it just doesn't want to turn out right, go and learn what you're doing wrong—don't just sit there trying all over again using only your current skills. And whenever you find something hard to draw, be grateful—you've just found your "unskill" that you can work on to be better in the future!

oh you got a new website :iconwowplz:

did you code it and all yourself?
it looks good ;P



aside from that;
lmao
so i didn't want to wait for lolipop to be released in the uk, so I got a Polish version, and it is in english but it came with a few polish apps
xD

omg polish seems like such a hard language
it has so many long words it seems xD

I've used a template, I could code it, but I'm too busy to do it properly :P

If you think Polish has many long words, you haven't seen German ;) I think Polish is hard because of this crazy grammar. Just look: in English you just add "come" to a person, in Polish it's "idę, idziesz, idzie, idziemy, idziecie, idą". "Came" would be "poszedłem/poszłam (male/female), poszedłeś/poszłaś, poszedł/poszła/poszło (he/she/it), poszliśmy/poszłyśmy, poszliście/poszłyście, poszli/poszły". That must be a nightmare for a non-native :P

oh right lol xP
It looks good, and it works nicely on phones too xD
well done on......finding a nice template lmao xD
getting stuff to work on phones is such a pain, I've been trying to get dev..xhaerithius.com to work on phones for the past 2 days
(which i just gave up on because I do not know JavaScript, and I think you need that to make it work xD)


lmao wow and here I thought Spanish was difficult
although the polish system seems kinda similar to how spanish works;
In Spanish you look at the end of the infinitive of a verb, and you can tell all its forms, like this is all the alternate forms of the spanish verb 'To eat'
in present tense:
Comer                      To eat
Como                         I eat
Comes                       You (singular eat
Come                         He/she/it eats
Comemos                  we eat
Comeis                      you (plural) eat
Comen                       they eat
And then there is also slight variation in words depending on if the noun is masculine or femenine xD

Is that like how it works in Polish?

Yeah, except our rules about those ends aren't so clear, a lot of exceptions :P
