Aw, thank you very much! I hope so, I’m trying to do something very specific, with a nice “oomph” touch to show some companies.

Here is the rough color test (literally, only overlay and color layers!) with a sloppy face rendering to measure this piece’s potential. I swear I will stop flooding you guys with WIPs today, heh. You might have seen this character before, by the way. I’ve not draw her for years!

Scumbag preview. Maybe I’ll finish it quickly, maybe I won’t. If I do, it means a new process gif.
Many know I recently put a new portfolio online. What you didn’t know is that those artworks I’ve been doing are meant to improve and refresh it. I’m determined to become a better artist and advance in my career!

Prévia sacana. Talvez eu termine esse rapidamente, talvez não. Se terminar, isso significa um novo gif do processo.

You’re getting tired of seeing her on you dash, aren’t you? But I had to reblog this analysis of her made at Sartorially Smart Heroines! Jack has a keen eye to detail, and it was a true delight to read his impression of her.

Mauve, Witch of the North, by Camila Vielmond

Made me laugh when I asked Camila permission to use Mauve for Sartorially Smart Heroines and she warned me: “Mauve is no heroine, she falls somewhere between the anti-hero and villain archetypes.” Which is perfectly fine with me: I admire good villainesses and keep intending to show them more love on the blog. (I’m always open to requests, folks. If you have a smartly dressed villainess you’d like to see, feel free to let me know!)

"[M]agnificent, mischievous bastard," was the description Camila gave for the charming Mauve, and I like to think Cam succeeded in this portrayal. Our clever caster looks rough—-battered even—-but in no way a victim. The scars on her face likely came from fights she started (and probably finished). All in all, I see in her a tough, smart, self-reliant character: qualities I admire and look for in heroines and villainesses alike.

Everyday I promise myself to go to bed earlier to catch up on my sleep and end going at 3 A.M., the messages have been piling up, and a situation that requires my attention arose a couple of days ago.

That tutorial is finished and I wish I could post it to thank everyone for the last months, but I have to review it with a clear head, so here is a close up of that other WIP instead.

Todo dia me prometo ir para a cama mais cedo para colocar o sono em dia e termino indo às 3, as mensagens estão se acumulando, e uma situação que requer atenção aconteceu há alguns dias.

Aquele tutorial está pronto e eu adoraria postá-lo para agradecer todo mundo pelos últimos meses, mas ainda preciso revisá-lo com atenção; então aqui vai um close daquele trabalho em progresso ao invés disso.

My new portfolio is online! I’m doing a test run on a slightly unstable server for now, and I’m still improving it, but let me know if something goes wrong. I wrote the code from scratch, including the language auto-detect/switcher.
"So, why should I care?", you may ask. Higher quality process gifs! I can’t post big gifs on Tumblr, and I solved this dilemma by uploading them to my own site. (:
I’m taking suggestions for cheap but reliable webhosts by the way. I don’t expect high traffic, but I need it to stay online 24/7.

Meu novo portfólio está online! Estou usando um servidor levemente instável para testá-lo, e ainda estou melhorando-o, mas qualquer coisa errada me avisem. Escrevi o código do zero, inclusive a detecção automática de idioma.
"E daí?", você pode perguntar. Gifs de processos em alta qualidade! Não posso postar gifs grandes no Tumblr, resolvi esse dilema colocando-as no meu site. (:
Aceito sugestões de webhosts confiáveis e baratos por sinal. Não espero ter muito tráfego, mas preciso que fique online 24/7.

Let me sneak this late night teaser just to mess with you! I had hopes of finishing these this weekend, but… not. I’m exhausted. Sorry.

Deixe-me postar esse teaser de final de noite só para mexer com vocês! Eu tinha esperanças de terminar esses nesse fim de semana, mas… não. Estou exausta. Desculpe.

Haha, in fact I’ve been asked this question a number of times this month; I should do a nice FAQ or something. I’ll elaborate a little this time and may actually use it as basis for a FAQ. :)


I’m a bit lazy. I have tons of brushes but I don’t use them! My default brush is the default Photoshop’s Hard Edge Round brush with minor modifications:

(Yep, lots of brushes…)

In the Transfer panel I set the Control for the Opacity Jitter as “Pen Pressure”. Sometimes I control it manually (hotkeys 1-0), but that’s rare. I also turn on the Size Jitter when I feel like. You can open this panel by pressing F5.

I use this brush for basic color and shape work and finer details.

But wait, there is more!

For the painterly brushstrokes I’ve been using a lines brush from Tatitati Brushes Pack. Rendering everything by hand isn’t very clever and takes a lot of time. I tried lots of brushes before to improve my speed, but I only felt comfortable with these brushes. That’s a first!

It’s not over yet!

In the past I’ve used PaintTool SAI a lot. Sadly I started to move away from it for the lack of 64bit release versions, but I still use it some times. I essentially use the brushes from this lovely Brushes Pack. My favourite is the Flat brush:

The fun thing about SAI is adjusting the brushes on the fly. You can tweak Blending, Persistence and Dilution and even Pressure Sensitivity in the same window.

By using this flat brush I accidentally trained myself for the “painterly” style. Because this brush “breaks” in steep angles(1) I had to mind the strokes direction and work with shorter ones(2) sometimes. It helped me to develop an eye to flow and volume (and I’m still working on it!), what is essential for evident brushstrokes, because one misplaced stroke can flatten a solid.

That’s it. I hope it answers some of your questions.

I really should do one, I know, right? I never got around translating that one because I lost the source file and it was a really silly tutorial anyway.

Lately I’ve been doing timelapses (not quite the same thing but they give some insight in the meantime). I’ll see if one of these works which I have the progress shots is suitable to become a tutorial, otherwise I’ll do a fresh one in the future.
