This site never ceases to amaze me
don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
When I first started working at Rooster Teeth I just used a sharpie on my monitor but for some reason that made Adam mad so he bought me a Wacom tablet. The sharpie didn’t work as well on that either and to be honest it just made Adam mad again when I drew on it. Then they bought me an iPad. That got taken away pretty quick as well as all my whiteout pens and different colored sharpies. Now I just draw on whoever’s desk is left unattended. Except for Monty’s. You don’t touch Monty’s desk.
Proper drawing procedure. You must have multiple sharpies, they contrast brilliantly when on illuminated computer/tablet screens.

Because attempting to animate in the purgatory that is a midway between Sai and Photoshop is akin to sawing off your dick with a nail file, I got around to this last week.
The goal is to allow for viewing of wip animations being made in Sai without having to load the project into Photoshop, Flash, or whatever your external timeline of choice is. Essentially, you export each frame as a .png into a folder and then just overwrite them in the same way when you want to update a frame.
On load it defaults to whatever directory it’s sitting in, but if you want to keep it somewhere else you can select the folder source post-load.
Images are loaded alphabetically, so all of these are valid:
- a.png, b.png, c.png
- 1.png, 2.png, 3.png
- Frame1.png, Frame2.png, Frame3.png.
It runs off .png files because I don’t see why you’d use any other format in 2014. If anyone desperately wants .jpeg support or something I can add a toggle though.
Image locations are loaded fresh upon each iteration and held within the program so you can add, update and remove frames without stopping it if you want to. This means you can leave it open on a second monitor and have a looping preview without leaving Sai.
Shit runs on .net 4.5 since C# is cakewalk for stuff like this.
Sketched @williambeckett afew times the other day :D #art #sketch #williambeckett
I’m a hat model :D my drawing professor is pretty fed up with me haha
Can’t say I didnt try…. an awesome artwork came out of it though and I’m pround of it :)
but thank you to those who voted for me, it really means a lot <3
Inspired by a recent experience I had with someone stealing my art and cropping out my URL.
Dedicated to every artist who has had their art work stolen.
This is a serious problem. Don’t do it.
It only counts as genius if there wasn’t any actual thinking behind it.
Coming to you from my new tablet stand!
Pinched myself on a clamp thing working on stuff for 3D Design :( #ow
Definition of my day haha #friends #college
