Keep in mind, and hold this as a disclaimer, but this is how I work, and before you get into character work, understand that everyone works in their own way and has their own style habits, body shape preferences and more so take everything with a grain of salt, and apply where needed!
Again please excuse my rough drawings ;;; here is a quick and basic explanation!
While I believe everyone has their own methods to drawing creases and folds, here is one I usually follow. I don’t concentrate on details much but I focus on the general shapes of the folds- we all understand that cloth overlaps each other when it creases and such. My instructors had taught me its all about the triangles.
Whenever there is a tension in the cloth, it creates a focal point to that area that is causing the tension. All these creases basically form shapes like triangles! For example:
Holding up a cloth with two hands, all the tension areas are drawn to the hands holding up the cloth. See all the tension points creating triangular crease shapes?
Another example with shirts- if someone is wearing a tight shirt, the arm hole usually hugs around the arm pit more. (thats why you can tell if you are comfortable or not if you can move your arm around in a sleeve). With a baggy shirt, tension is created with the object holding the fabric up, and gravity is pulling down on the sleeves.
Its easy to get way too focused on the detailing of creases- let loose a bit! Don’t worry about making the perfect crease and fold or else you might end up a whole sleeve of unnecessary creases (unless if you are intentionally drawing a large baggy sleeve that makes a lot of creases).
Here are some photo examples~ this is one of Robert Downey Jr. because he is lovely to look at :>

Hope this helps! x_x;;;
Even a monkey can make glitch art!
- open the picture (preferably .jpg) in paint
- save the image as .bmp
- change the extension to .txt and open it in wordpad
- save the picture and close wordpad
- change the extension back to .bmp
- open and enjoy
Sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you aren’t and your file might end up corrupt or just plain ugly. You can further alter the image by deleting a couple of symbols when you open the picture with wordpad.

Sakura Process - How This Was Done in an Hour:
Sketch Stage: Takes no longer than 10 minutes. I quickly plot down shapes and then sculpt and check proportions. As you can see, where it’s loose, it’s viable that I’m confident with that area and open for improvisation. Where it’s tight and refined (like planted leg) is where I tell myself subconsciously that I have to follow the sketch closely.
Line-Art Stage: Is what it is. Just drawing over the sketch. Carefully going over the parts I wanted to keep in the sketch. Under 20 minutes.
Baseflat & Shade Stage: Using lasso tool and feathering, selected areas where the shadow falls. 2 Layers: Shadow under skirt is its own layer. Second layer follows the shadows with everything else. Dark Purple color on Hard Light is the setting. I have an Outer Glow layer style applied to both layers which gives that reddish glow/gradient to the shadows. Took about 15 minutes.
Rest of Flats and Gradients: 1 Gradient going from bottom to top, purplish color on Hard Light, at about 45% Opacity. Lasso’d and filled pinks on knees and behind leg, elbows and fingers, gaussian blurred. About 15 minutes.
Finished Look: Brownish-red color hold on lines. Flattened image. Duplicated layer, Gaussian Blurred at about 15 pts., layer changed to Lighten at about 35-45% opacity (that’s open for interpretation depending on the final look I want.)
Ok, So I didn’t make this tutorial before, because I’m too fucking lazy :P and my English is terrible, so please don’t judge me. :D
First of all, You guys have to know that, I don’t make gifs, from screencaps, I make gifs from videos. I have no idea, how people can make gifs, from screencaps. Because I actually tried, and they ended up looking really awful.
I use Photoshop CS5, because only this version can open videos. and I know a lot of people here on tumblr, use CS2 and CS3… ( btw I hate CS3)
But I applaud all these people, that can make gifs from screencaps using CS3. You guys are awesome.
And This is a tutorial about how to really make a gif! Because I know there’s a lot of people here that have no clue about how to make gifs on phothoshop.
If you guys are still interested in learning, how I make gifs …
NO ONE ASKED FOR THIS but I wanted to share in case anyone wanted to make VHS-style images of their own. >D;
This is my very stripped down process gleaned from a far more complicated tutorial. I used it to make this picture. Hope you enjoy!

So I thought (what with the insane amount of pixel art blogs I follow) I aught to post a little bit of a “Where to Start” post when finding good pixel art here on tumblr. To be honest I’ve been meaning to do this for I while now, however I got motivated when the good folks at the tumblr staff who
