Death—
Most people would be happy simply drawing Death. Me? Oh, no, I give her a girl’s face of rosy cheeks, and lovely, soft curls to go, to the point she looks more like Delirium/Delight in disguise. Perhaps it’s Pan (my own character), haunting every painting I do until I finish hers.

Morte—
A maioria ficaria feliz em desenhar a Morte. Eu? Ah, não, tenho que lhe dar um rosto de menina de bochechas rosadas e adoráveis, suaves cachos, no ponto que ela parece muito mais Delírio/Deleite que a Morte. Acho que é a Paon (minha personagem) assombrando cada pintura que faço até que termine a dela.

knorfka:

They’re great, I’ve got one too :)

estus:

I have this one! lol It’s awesome, too! I don’t know if it actually helps but man is it fun to use.

That’s great! I’m still learning to use it, that’s crazy, I tire really fast, hah.

narcyl:

It’s the fist time I see one of these… I don’t really know what they are for, even after seeing a video. Is it related with avoiding carpian tunnel syndrome?

It’s said that it helps to avoid repetitive strain injuries, including carpal tunnel ones by strengthening your muscles and grip. I wouldn’t advise to rely on it only to treat/prevent these problems, you should see a doctor if you’re in serious pain.

Last year I spent two months in pain and with half a hand numb, having to drop the pencil to let my arms rest during this time. I also paid attention to my habits, noticing it’s not only long drawing sessions that give me pain; drawing when stressed is actually what makes it worse. Sometimes I’d draw only one hour and feel my hands, wrist and even shoulder-neck hurt.

After I came back I started watching out my posture, and I force myself to relax as soon I notice I’m stressed and stiff. It solved 75% of the problem. Now, I hope to increase my drawing “stamina” by exercising.

After hearing positive reviews from a number of illustrators I just got myself a gyroscopic exercise ball. Hopefully it’ll help me to prevent pain from straining drawing sessions.

Após escutar comentários positivos de um número de ilustradores decidi arrumar uma bola de exercício giroscópica. Com sorte ela ajudará a prevenir dor após longas sessões de desenho.

Today I brought you another tip!

PngOptmizer

Photoshop does a good job with the size of its pngs and gifs, but sometimes it’s not the best it could do. Images with large, flat colors or transparent areas (like icons) have a lot of useless information that can be removed without any loss.

I picked this habit of optimizing all my pngs—even artwork—in my web designing days. Simply open the program, drag and drop the images there. It’ll do the rest, including automatically creating a backup before doing anything.

There is a number of softwares like this nowadays. I’ve always used pysdk’s, it’s light and easy, winning a place in my “essential softwares” pendrive.

Photoshop faz um bom trabalho com o tamanho de seus pngs e gifs, mas nem sempre é o melhor que poderia fazer. Imagens com áreas grandes de cores chapadas ou transparentes (tipo ícones) têm bastante informação inútil que pode ser removida sem nenhuma perda.

Peguei o hábito de otimizar meus pngs—até ilustrações—nos meus dias de web designing. Simplesmente abra o programa, arraste e solte as imagens nele. Ele fará o resto, inclusive criar backups automaticamente antes de fazer qualquer coisa.

Existe um certo número de softwares como esse hoje em dia. Sempre usei o fo pysdk, por ser leve e fácil. Ele tem um lugar garantido no meu “pen drive de coisas essenciais”.

I simply can’t make up my mind on this artwork!

It has 7892 alt versions (which I’ll post later), and this subject itself proved hard to paint. It’s the third time I try to paint this place—hence the reason you saw no WIP of it.

It’s a location where a nice part of that story I was writing happens. If you look closely you might glimpse the contours of a city, I swear.

Done! I’m still playing with muted colors and I tried to give it a “classic” feel. Used a different soft brush this time.

Sorry about the variations sizes, tumblr won’t let me post it bigger. Feel free to comment which one you prefer!

| PORTUGUÊS |

Feito! Ainda estou brincando com cores suaves, e tentei dar impressão de pintura “clássica”.

Desculpe quanto o tamanho das variações, o tumblr não aceita imagem maior. SInta-se livre para dizer qual você prefere!

aftertouchs:

What’s got you stumped? It looks stunning as is but I’m definitely available if you need a set of fresh eyes for it.

It’s so silly! I came to accept that it may not be the ideal composition but it’s the best I can do at the moment, and even accepted my inability to paint waterfalls.

Yet I’m unable to decide something minor: Which variation will be the final version. You know when you change the hue, blur this or that part of the painting and such minor tweaks? This time none in particular looks “better” to my eye. I’m creating the process gif, I’ll post the variations too.

Mwahaha, I’m WIP flooding again. Sketched body and did a partial timelapse.

Now her face is much more to my liking. She’s the main character of that story I’m writing and I last drew her 2 years ago. Goddamit, now I can see my improvement!

Mwahaha, estou floodando com inacabados novamente. Esbocei o corpo e fiz um timelapse.

Agora o rosto está mais correto. Ela é a personagem principal dessa história que estou escrevendo e a desenhei há dois anos pela última vez. Credo, agora consigo notar minha evolução!
