looking for a beta

hey guys, I really need some help on a piece of art Im doing for the SamDeanOTP minibang. I've been trying to find a picture of young Dean to use as a reference with his face tilted the same way the one in my picture is, but he's always got his head down in all the caps I find. I've tried to sketch his face without the reference but I've deleted so many layers now cause he always looks wrong. Is there anyone out there who would be willing to beta/ help me with his face? please??? I can send you the photoshop file to work on ...please???

OH! and its g rated lol


mods i hope I tagged this right *bites nails*

Looking for a DCBB Beta

Can anyone help me out in this regard? It's enemies to friends set in 2014 with flashbacks to earlier events, so young Dean and Cas too.

There may also be a medieval minibang, to frost the cake.

Looking for beta...

Long time no see! I hope there are still people reading this, because I'm in need of help. I'm 3/4 through a picture, and the missing counter is completely fracking the composition. I'd love it if anyone could help me out with a suggestion or two.

It's a gen AU picture with Dean, Cas, and an OFC. No sexual content, no gore, just a gaping top left corner ruining everything...

Internet kittens and undying love are in in the offing...

eta: Beta found, thanks!

Creating Gifs With Gimp - Help?

Dear artists,
I am very new to the art side of things, I haven't even posted anything yet. But I'd like to; I'm currently working on a prompt from the Triple Play Challenge at ohsam. Unfortunately, my muses ran rampant and now I'm a little stuck with gimp. So I'd love to talk to someone about their experiences with creating gifs there. Specifically, is there any way to avoid the mode switch to 'indexed' from RGB? Because that just about slaughters the whole thing (which you experienced people probably were already aware of but I wasn't). Grayscales are fine quality wise, but I'd love to keep it colored.
Also, I'm currently at 100+ layers for the background alone - the muses, I'm telling you - and that makes the .xcf file huge and veeery slow to work with. Not only do I still need to tweak the whole thing to smooth it out, but I also need to add the actual foreground sequence with the characters so now I'm thinking about doing that in a second file and merging both of them in the end, probably by creating a new layergroup for every single background layer. Has anyone done that kind of thing before or knows the problems I'm talking about? I'm sure there must be easier ways to do this, so any advice would be highly appreciated.

Dear mods, I have no idea about tagging this or if this is even the right place to ask these things so I'm sorry for all mistakes I probably made.
Title: Cas Pencil Protrait
Artist: odysseaia.
Character: Castiel.
Rating: G.
Warnings: None.
Is it a WIP or not?WIP.
What medium/technique did you use? Pencils. From HB to deep shadows done with 5B.
Is this technique new for you? More or less, since I'm aiming for different things this time around. Less of a comic-style feeling and more semi-realism.
What resources/references did you use? Some reference picture I found floating around the internet. If you need it, I'll go search for it and link it here.
What would you like advise on? How do I make my picture look like Castiel and not some random guy in a trenchcoat? So mostly I'm interested in the facial features. I have yet to smooth things out, do proper shading and add highlights and deepen shadows but there's just something off about the face that dries me a little crazy.

Thanks so much in advance for your help! ♥

Calling all manip artists...

I've been creating several of them lately, but I'm running out of bases to use. I've been making mpreg art, and it's not easy locating images of "pregnant" men to use. Can anyone direct me to some, or share any images with me? (Preferably ones that I can use in my SPN/J2 manips.) Any and all help is very much appreciated!

DC Dystopia: Reverse Bang Challenge


RULES | CURRENT ROUND & SCHEDULE | SIGN UP | WATCH

We invite you to dc_dystopia, a Dean/Castiel and Jensen/Misha-centric fanwork challenge community inspired by the likes of j2_everafter and dc_everafter – but with a dark twist. Rather than focusing on true love, happy endings, and fluff, dc_dystopia is all about reveling in dark!fic tropes and endings where things aren't quite so neatly resolved. If it might belong in a nightmare, then it has a place here.

Sign ups are currently ongoing for ROUND TWO, our first themed round. The theme of this round is the REVERSE-BANG FORMAT, where artists submit things first and have stories written based on their work.

Instruction recommendation

I'm in what I hope is the tail end of an unscheduled "vacation" from fanart, from art in general. In order to conquer my rather massive artist's block and crisis of confidence, I've started studying figure drawing a bit more formally. And because I'm impatient and still lack confidence (oh, let's just call it a drive to succeed, shall we?), I'm looking for good figure drawing references. I already have a few, but they're pretty randomly selected.

What do you guys have, that you'd recommend?

I just downloaded all of Andrew Loomis' instructional works and look forward to getting into the work of someone who comes as highly recommended as by Alex Ross. I'm also looking at Glenn Vilppu's educational works, since I've also heard great things about him.

Do any of you have any favourites?

As we're nearing posting time for our first round, we've found ourselves in need of MORE ARTISTS. Nine fics are still open for claiming, and we'd like to get them matched up with artists as soon as possible. If you're interested in signing up to make art for one of our fine fics, please head over to our artist claims post, pick one (or more!) out, and submit a request to join the comm. Then, we'll get you added ASAP and hook you up with your author's/authors' contact information.

Line art and coloring questions

I have some art-y type questions and hopefully this is the right area to post them. :-) So, my first rather dumb question has to do with line art.
 
After I draw/sketch the pic, I line it in black and proceed to color. But the thing is, what do I do with the black line once it’s colored in? If I’m doing a cartoonish pic I don’t mind the black line being there as it gives it an appropriate feel. But if I want to do a more traditional piece, I don’t know what to do with the black line once it’s colored in. I try to erase it, but it leaves white underneath where the color didn’t cover. And the image feels flat without the line.
 
How do I avoid using the black line art in my image? Do I even need to line it in black after sketching or should I just proceed to coloring in the sketch itself?
 
Also, what sort of tips/tricks can you guys recommend for coloring an image? Normally I just use different layers set on Multiply, but lately I’ve been wanting to experiment with new styles. Any tips?
 
Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :-)

Sign-ups for writers are open for another ten days, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY? WE NEED ARTISTS SOMETHING FIERCE.

Currently, we have 50 authors and 15 artists signed up for the challenge. Even taking into account that some authors will drop out and that we're allowing artists to claim more than one fic, this still isn't looking so hot. We really, really need some more artists, so if you draw, make manips and graphics, make fanvids, or make any kind of art, COME SIGN UP. If you know anyone else who makes art, TELL THEM TO COME SIGN UP.

More author sign-ups are welcome until the eighteenth, as well, as are any volunteers to beta-read and/or cheerlead. And, naturally, any signal-boosting is more than appreciated, too.

Is there a community that is dedicated to porny SPN fanart?
I've been thinking about where best to post kinky art.

Hi! So does anyone have good websites for homoerotic pictures? I have nothing at hand, and google searches kill my computer. I really need some good pictures, I have absolutely no ability to come up with poses on my own...

Also, free would be best...

D/C BB Beta request

I need a fabric beta. I welcome advice of all kinds, but what I really need is help with folds, since I can't find good positional references for these outfits.

These are for my D/C BB entries (with maybe a slight reversebang question, but teeny). The medium is pencil with minimal (read: basic) digital cleanup.

Anyone able and willing to help?
