It had my 3dsxl, my headphones, my phone cord, my pencil bag (with all of my favorite supplies in it) and my sketchbook that only had 20 pages left to fill. I’m pretty bummed about it, especially about losing more than 70 pages of art and ~5 commissions i hadnt had the chance to scan yet….

When something doesn’t look right, but you can’t figure out why, make a copy of your layer and try some of these tricks. Staring too long at a piece without breaks is often where I “kill” a piece and lose scope of the work as a whole. Thanks to letsplaygods for the supersaturate trick.
I already flip and value check often. Though those other things seem like pretty niffty tricks to keep in mind when i’m spending more than 4 hours straight on a piece//working on something from start to finish.
Also for the love of god remember to zoom out. I’ve had so many awful moments of “this is lookin’ greaFFFFFUUUUUUUU”
I use the flip trick religiously, and the value check when I remember to. Zooming out is also VERY important. It has been hard to teach myself to work initially zoomed out. Focusing in too tight can totally mess up your piece. Remember, people see the big picture first, then the details. That’s how you should work as well.
also if you’re making a big composition where you need to center the attention on certain area you should try the effect “median” (filter->noise->median), it’ll help you see if the sillouettes in your composition aren’t too overwhelming and if you need to fix them in order to direct attention towards the main subject of picture
do you ever have second-hand obsessions
like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend
Imma just let this sit here
MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE
They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing.
Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time
Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell.
ALL OF IT.
IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS
Please take the first image (the poster) and add something of your liking! I will be very grateful and surely can’t wait to see how it will look with everyone’s works on it!
I decided that it was best people created a new post instead or reblogging due to possible sizing problems….(EDIT2) and typos.
I must have said this sooner, but I need to include the posters in my magazine on Tuesday, so I will need them before October 14 and that will be the deadline. I still need more so the help will be greatly appreciated.
The professor moved the deadline to Friday so I need the posters by October 16 now. And I will also include ALL submissions, so whoever participates will have their creative poster part of my magazine. =)
