Oh, Elsa.  What are we going to do with you.

Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape.  Thing.  You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle.  THAT’S MY EXCUSE.

I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well.  Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.

Tuesday Tips — Painting a shiny object

the steps are:

1.  matte base object

2.  add ceiling reflection 

3.  highlight

yes, it is that simple.  Throughout the years, I learn to edit.  It’s unnecessary to paint or render every single grain of hair and detail.  It’s about communicating the idea across.  A lot of it is about believability.  I find this technique works for me.  And as always, it is a good idea to practice it on a simple basic primitives.  (I know, I know, it’s not the most exciting thing).  But you will be surprise on how fast you can paint when you master your basic shapes. 

Attached are gif I made to show you my steps on a sphere, and one of my shoe illustration I painted using the same technique.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)

Ohhhh horror vacui neat to see tutorials on it.

KNOTWORK *flips table* I have the rest of this book and it’s amazing and I’m trying to learn how to do it myself. IT’S SO TEDIOUS BUT I LOVE IT

Night Fury! 
Can’t wait to see How to Train Your Dragon 2! I was privy to some excellent sneak peeks during my internship and can’t wait to see the finished film! I think my favorite parts are still watching Hiccup think and figure out his cool contraptions.

Created this piece for my maps class. The assignment was to pick a chapter from the book  “On the Map” and then depict an aspect of its contents. I chose the chapter on Treasure Island and treasure maps in general. There was a passage that stuck with me, describing how most treasure seekers don’t find any treasure on their expeditions. Rather, their experiences and comradery are what make the voyage truly valuable, if they live to see the journey’s end.

New Home Is Where The Internet Is!  Tumblr’s 10-page limit is keeping me from posting the whole thing, so head on over to the webcomic to read the rest (plus a blog post with Paris photos and doodles).

I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!!  I’m so excited.  We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH.  Back soon, love and hugs~

-Your friend Tally

Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D

I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.
