Thanks to the AMAZING Google web fonts. I do not OWN any of these fonts or codes. I am simply just creating a step by step guide to show you how to use them in your tumblr theme.
Step 1: Go to Google web fonts by clicking here. Next you need to choose your font. They have many lovely fonts on there to choose from, once you’ve found one your like click on ‘add to collection’…
Step 2: Now you need to click on ‘use’ which i’ve pointed to in red
Next, the tricky bits…
Step 3: You need to scroll down the page until you see the first code
You need to copy and paste this code in to your theme code right under your <head> tag
Step 4: Now click on @import
Copy and paste this code in to your css coding (underneath style type=”text/css”)
Copy and paste this underneath your <head> tag underneath where you pasted the first code
Step 6: Scroll down the google web fonts page a little bit more until you find another css code like…
You need to look for your theme coding until you find your ‘body’ criteria with will include font-size, background colour etc…
You need to replace the font-family:ORIGINAL FONT; with the code from google web fonts like soo…
Save your theme and voila!

I’ve had a general idea what these things did but wasn’t completely sure what their specific functions were. I decided to sit down and figure it out, and I have thrown together a short reference guide for anyone who is confused about them. I know there are multiple translations of SAI floating around, so if some of these terms don’t sound familiar, just know that I’m talking about the three settings that appear under the texture in the brush tool settings (note that this won’t apply to any tool types except for brushes and watercolor brushes).
I don’t claim to be an expert so if you find I’ve made a mistake, let me know so I can update it, thanks! :3
BLENDING (Color Blending)
This controls how readily the brush will inherit any colors you are painting over with it. For example, a 0% blending setting will pick up no existing colors, treating it as if you were painting on a transparent layer. A 100% blending setting will ONLY pick up existing colors (provided there are any). So at 100%, the color you’re using won’t even show up, unless you move to a transparent area. Blending is not affected by transparent pixels, so if you’re drawing on a blank layer it will have no effect.
So you can see from this example that the color I’m using gets harder to paint as the blending increases and more of the existing green is absorbed, until at 100% it is just completely turning green.
DILUTION (Opacity Mix)
This controls how readily the brush will draw on a blank (transparent) part of the layer. A 0% Dilution will result in the brush painting very easily onto a blank surface, while a brush with 100% dilution will literally not paint on blank parts of the layer at all. Dilution is ONLY affected by transparent pixels. So it won’t do anything if the whole layer is already filled in (even with white). Dilution can be thought of as the inverse of the Blending setting in some ways.
So in this example, you can see that as dilution approaches 100%, the color I’m painting with basically becomes invisible. In fact, if you were to switch to binary color mode and look at this layer, there would literally be nothing there anymore!
Keep this in mind - if you ever can’t paint for some reason, check your dilution setting, it might have gotten accidentally bumped to 100!
This one goes hand-in-hand with blending. Basically, it controls how easily a brush shifts color as you are blending from one color to another. Rather, how long it “persists” if you will. Like blending, Persistence is only really relevant when painting over existing color so it’s mostly unaffected by transparent pixels. Basically, the higher the persistence, the longer it will take for the color to shift as you make a stroke, and subsequently, from which color to which other color it is shifting is dependent on the blending setting.
So for this example I’ve done the same test with three different levels of blending. I turned off all pressure sensitivity (actually I just used my mouse) to emphasize the effects in a controlled environment:
If blending is at 0%, persistence fails to have any real effect. With pressure on, there is only the difference of having to push harder, but the results will be the same as far as I can tell.
At a happy medium of 50%, persistence increase causes the orange that the brush is picking up to last longer as it goes into the green, until it never shifts to blue at all.
At 100% blending, there was never any blue in the first place, because as we already know, full blending causes you to only pick up existing color. So the persistence setting changes only how fast the orange changes to green.
Persistence is dependent upon the blending settings, so having them somewhere in the middle will probably produce the most optimal results.
Ultimately how you use these is up to you, and is largely dependent on what kind of brush you’re making and what it will be used for. And most of these settings are meant to be used together in unison, so play around with them a lot!
If you are confused, or not sure what settings you want or what settings you should be using, a safe bet is to put them all at about 50% - that will produce fairly average results that are easy to work with, and it’s easy to remember in case you want to experiment but don’t want to forget your settings in case you decide to switch back.
Hope that helps!
Just when you thought you knew everything about boobs… NSFW?
My darling friend Chizzi mentioned that there are a lot of booby tutorials out there are just predrawn boobs with the artist going HEY LOOK! HERE ARE SOME BOOBS! but not many that actually talk about the anatomical structure, and where to put the lines. I was like, “Hey, I can probably whip something up.” And so I spent my thanksgiving making this.
Proportions probably aren’t exact, but I did my best. I also didn’t explore the various body types, but perhaps I could do a separate tutorial someday. I hope you find this tutorial useful :)
All photo references used in the tutorial were found on The Drawing Script. Credits to each photo belong to their respective owners.
Reblogging because it seemed quite appropriate with the recent release of the Catwoman #0 cover…

I thought I’d make a little gif out of this to show the importance of line-weights, especially when you have a drawing with a lot of confusing lines.
Line-weights! They’re important! At least…they are…to me…
it’s not like I like them or anything
Okay, things are getting weird, that’s my cue to to go bed.
