    Being an artist means accept the moments when your work looks bad and keep trying anyways

    “heyyyy im one of your art fans ! i couldnt access any of your “born to be a sacrifice comic” s but the last one. idk why. pls fix it if you can :)”

    HEY THank you for letting me know!! Turns out I needed to update all the links, they should all be working now, Sorry for the confusion!

    Chapter 12 is up and damn fine looking

    In case you have time on your hands and want to read a fic with angst, Katsuki and Izuku.

    (i made some art for it btw)

    Hi I was wondering if you could try and do an au were deku is quirkless but discovers witchcraft, witch!deku

    hey nah that sound like a cool idea and all but if you’d like to have me draw something consider commissioning me, I already have projects I'm working on so giving out free requests isn’t something I got time for

    Hey it's cool I was only asking if you would like to actually I was trying to give you an idea for another project sorry if I wasted any of your time but keep doing what you do best and do what you love your an amazing person

    Nah you're totally fine dude I'm not a master of time or motivation so when I do want to draw I already got exercises and idea to work on but thanks for the support! It means a bunch!

    Izuku as anything but a hero just doesn’t compute for me so if he were quirkless forever let him be an unconventional hero and make his own hero tech. I was going to make like his Antigravity bot have a name that would be shortened to Angel but it didn’t work out...

    Born To Be a Sacrifice Part 6  🏥

    After what a month and a half (?) I got the next part done!

    Update:

     I’ll be going ahead refining and formalizing my social pages to a more professional design. This means that I’m doing away with Vianyri and the things I post and follow will be adjusted. So I‘ll be going ahead and cleaning out my blog and renaming accordingly by the end of today and cleaning things out throughout the next few weeks.

     I had a talk with someone important to me that gave me a few tips on resume building and pushing myself forwards. My art pieces from now on will be signed under my name and social media title. Thanks for all the Love and support ♥

    I understand that it's on hiatus but I just wanted to say that I really enjoy Born to be a sacrifice

    amazing how literally one message can suddenly motivate you to line up the next part of your comic. Who would have seen that coming? (onto color and shading!)

    Year five update

    Links to year one, two, three, four 

    I returned from my 18 month trip in October and got re-obsessed with BNHA. I post this to share my progress and have something I can look back on and keep track of time. I think stepping away from art for a time was a good choice, it made me lose a chunk of the audience I had gained over three years but I’m looking at art with a new perspective. So without further delay my art pieces I’m happy with ♥

    My first Digital Piece after I came back. I wanted to be more experimental and skilled in the landscaping and make sure that I properly used lighting on all the objects in the image. October 9, 2019

    This is one of my art studies, I have a few that I’ve posted but this ones my favorite thus far because I made a few creative choices as I drew. Doing an art study opened my mind and helped my skill. I will definitely be doing more, as I’ve been building up a reference file for redraws. October 31, 2019

    Less focused on the surroundings and more on the character. I’m super happy with the finished product I worked hard on the details, the colors are pretty well balanced, theres good visual interest and I maintained the characters form (for the most part) and their character. December 15, 2019

    I went a step further with this one, everything just fell together as I drew this, There are many factors I can improve on but this is most likely my best piece of the review. I designed from the ground up and everything in it has time and little details you can zoom in on an notice. January 5, 2020

    I have been ‘working on a comic’ Its currently being delayed as I am working on a zine but I have to work on consistency because of it. Its taught me where to focus my efforts when visually telling a story and what formats work best for comics. Started December 11, 2019

    May the next year bring more opportunities and growth I can look back on like these ones have. Thank you for any of you who have stuck around during my Hiatus and welcome anyone who found my art and supports it with like and reblogs. The drop in attention is a little discouraging after I came back but clearly isn’t going to stop me from continuing. Art is the thing I want to work on for the rest of my life even if nobody cares for it. But I’d be very grateful if I could live off the thing I love one day.

    Top 12 alternatives to Photoshop for digital painters and illustrators

    Hello there!

    Yes, we haven’t done this in a while… but our inbox and chat are swamped with questions on the subject, so this article was very much needed.

    it’s a simple list of art apps, but we know you love those :D

    Enough with the intro, here it is, a list of twelve art apps you may want to check out.

    image

    <>ArtRage<><> is an art program for beginners and professionals. With its minimal interface, it’s easy to keep the essential tools at hand without stealing space from the canvas.
    Panels can be moved around and tools can be customised. We all know how important it is for digital artists to be able to modify brushes!

  • <>Pros: easy to use; friendly interface; essential tools from professional apps available; available for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac
  • <>Cons: it may get sluggish with big files and when using big brushes, but performances also depend on the running machine; limited selection of editing tools if compared to Photoshop - ArtRage is more of a painting program rather than an editing one.
  • <>Paid
  • ArtRage Lite is a different version at a cheaper price, mostly for beginners, but also for professionals if they need the essential.

    image

    Now free, <>Sketchbook<><> is the famous app created by Autodesk for various platforms.

  • <>Pros: clean, friendly interface; easy to use; professional features; autosave feature
  • <>Cons: lack of official tutorials; doesn’t offer as many tools as other apps (it’s down to the essential); paid subscription in Adobe style for Enterprise License
  • <>Free and <>paid
  • image

    <>Black Ink<><> is a powerful little program few actually know, but there’s a reason: this isn’t your classing drawing app.
    What’s cool about it is the vast selection of special brushes, completely non-realistic, and definitely able to boost your creativity.

  • <>Pros: vast selection of customisable brushes; excellent performance
  • <>Cons: not very easy to use; non-intuitive interface
  • <>Paid
  • image

    This is probably the most complete software for painting, drawing and animation. It was originally known as Manga Studio, but with its updates and addition of features, it became <>Clip Studio Paint<><>. 

    This doesn’t say much about the quality of the features themselves considering the affordable price (if you haven’t used the app yet, that is), but among graphic apps, this one is the top seller.

  • <>Pros: professional features for illustrators; layout tools for comic/manga artists; 3D reference models; customisable tools; various sales with special prices
  • <>Cons: the interface may not appear intuitive at first; the program may lag (again, performance also depends on the running machine)
  • <>Paid
  • image

    <>GIMP<><> is the famous open source image editor originally created for GNU/Linux and available for OS X and Windows. 

    Best known as Photoshop’s main competition, this is a manipulation program for both beginners and professionals who love design.

    It offers many professional features, making the program a powerful tool.

  • <>Pros: professional editing tools; supports different formats; supported by different platforms; active community
  • <>Cons: in spite of the simple design, many options are hidden and it takes time to discover all the features; slow startup
  • <>Free
  • image

    <>Krita<><> is an open source painting app created by artists for artists.

  • <>Pros: easy to use; intuitive interface; great brush workflow; brush stabilizer; customisable brushes; general good performance; very enthusiastic, although small, community
  • <>Cons: it may be slow or even crash depending on the running computer and the app’s version; very few editing tools compared to Photoshop
  • <>Free
  • image

    <>MediBang Paint<><> is a free and light app for drawing and painting, perfect for manga and comic creation.

  • <>Pros: vast selection of brushes; cloud sharing; friendly, minimal interface (non-desktop app); also available for iPad, iPhone and Android
  • <>Cons: requires an account to use all features; non-intuitive interface (desktop version)
  • <>Free
  • image

    <>Mischief<><> is a sketching app with essential tools, useful for brainstorming and ideation.

  • <>Pros: infinite drawing canvas; friendly interface; easy to use; cheap pro version
  • <>Cons: few updates; offers only the essential (but that’s the point); no editing/adjustment tools
  • <>Free and <>paid
  • image

    Corel’s jewel<>, Paint<><>er is the most famous software that offers digital tools able to give a traditional feel to brushes and canvas.

  • <>Pros: different selection of media; many professional features; PS-friendly
  • <>Cons: certain brushes may work slow; not easy to use at first; the software may crash (this is the most common report); pricey
  • <>Paid
  • image

    <>Paintstorm Studio<><> is a professional software for digital painting. It’s focused on the use of brushes and blending, which makes the software a little gem in the digital painting field.

  • <>Pros: good brush workflow; brush stabilizer; “close gap” feature; customisable interface and tools; professional features; affordable price
  • <>Cons: non-intuitive interface (desktop version)
  • <>Paid
  • image

    <>Procreate<><> is the powerful drawing app for iOS. 

    With the very sensitive Apple Pencil, Procreate is so easy to use that many artists chose the iPad over the most famous graphic tablets.

  • <>Pros: friendly interface; makes it easy to organise files; excellent brush workflow; customisable brushes; video recording; affordable price
  • <>Cons: hidden features; only available for iPad
  • <>Paid
  • image

    <>SAI<> is a simple app for artists who want to focus on painting and drawing. 

    It’s well known for its good pressure support and its essential tools for manga artists, but SAI can be used by any kind of artist who wants to paint.

  • <>Pros: easy to use; friendly interface; light software; customisable brushes; tons of (non-official) tutorials
  • <>Cons: limited selection of tools, even basic ones; limited canvas sizes and uses; it might crash from intensive work, especially with big canvases and brushes; supports only RGB colour mode; lack of support
  • <>Paid
  • <>HONOURABLE MENTION

    image

    <>Many call this app an advanced PaintTool SAI, and for a reason. <>FireAlpaca offers almost everything PTS has and more.

  • <>Pros: friendly interface; brush stabilizer; lineart selection; customisable brushes
  • <>Cons: no colour slider; limited brush control; although more advanced compared to PTS, the features are quite basic.
  • <>Free
  • We hope you’ll find this list useful. 

    If you think there are other apps that should have made this list, don’t hesitate to let us know!

    Thank you and peace out,

    G&M

    A concept: we enjoy what feels earned

    rewarding yourself with a video or a treat between projects makes the work and the thing you look forward to more satisfying

    Self control teaches fulfillment. However you should take time to intentionally do nothing. Not just linger online or with a video as white noise but sit and allow yourself a moment to breath and think. Relaxation is listening to your needs.
