Make Something New

ps-imadethis:

It should be of no surprise, a pop of neon brings “tiers” of joy to our eyes. A cascade of bold brights works day or night, and Summer’s the ideal time to radiate shocking hues. Designers like Tom Binns and Oscar de la Renta have shown us that jewels are more chic with a colorful streak…unlock your own inner glow with this DIY neck candy! 
To create, hit up your local hardware store for these colorful key identifiers. Layout a pattern and secure each circle with jump rings. Once you have your finished “bib” add 2 jump rings and a chain to finish off!

DIY 1000 Paper Cranes Backdrop. When I say everyone can do the majority of projects I post I really mean it. To have the patience to do this one is another matter! This was too cool not to post and was done by a bride for a boho wedding backdrop. Tutorial at The Boho Wedding Blog here. The bride said in the comments:

The beautiful story of 1000 paper cranes includes the thought that if a bride folds them for her wedding, she will carry this patience to her marriage and bring with it happiness, luck and prosperity.

ArtsyPoses - Relatively new, but very cool. The 30 second drawing tool seems to be glitching a little but that could be my computer being a dumb. Lots of unique poses and they’re looking to expand to other body types (if you read the FAQ they even said there are too many fit models).

PoseManiacs - Everybody knows this one! Great poses, you can interact with them (rotation, etc) and has a very cool 30 second drawing tool. Also I belieeeve this is available on iOS.

Pixelovey - Another fantastic drawing tool - I prefer it over PoseManiacs’ but I can NEVER FIND THE LINK :( Lots of options here, too.

CedarSeed - The drawings here aren’t great but there is so much information here.

Color Is Value - Handy coloring tips and things!

Ctrl+Paint - So many digital painting tutorials. SO MANY. Ridiculously helpful in everything ever, and constantly updated.

The Angry Animator - Because come on, all sorts of handy animation tips. I linked directly to the walk cycle because I found it to be most useful but there are other things floatin’ around there if that’s your thing~

Constructing the Head/Face - Done by Stanislav Prokopenko, an instructor. Also really seems to know what he’s talking about. Saving images off of Tumblr seems to be hit-or-miss so keep this link handy as it may not save correctly.

Drawing Muscles - Some of you may remember this from all of James Phegan’s classes ever! Super handy, and this is a printable version of the giant jpg he used to e-mail us.

Drawing more Muscles - The same artist; she’s really damn good at drawing beefy dudes.

Drawing People in Perspective

Nude models and drapery

Nude models in all sorts of poses

Clothing Styles

Amazing hands

Coelasquid’s “manbucket”

Haaands

HAAANDS

Color Scheme Designer - Allows you to quickly and easily create specific color schemes for a wide variety of purposes! If you’re like me and terrible with color, this will help.

Department store cosmetic countertops should be called the land of decadent organization.  Perfectly placed products look colorful and clean, which make us crave them even more.  It’s time to roll out the red carpet for the new beauty starlet that’s on everyone’s lips, Maybelline New York’s Baby Lips Lip Balm.  Never have we ever found a pout pleaser that has color, moisture, the cute-factor, and j’amazing packaging all in one.  Baby Lips Lip Balm has inspired our DIY Beauty box!  Due to it’s fun and fresh look, we want to display it, at eye level- everyday!  The purple (aka “Peach Kiss”) case inspired the base for the beauty box of the same hue.
To create, use a block of floral foam (avail in lots of fun colors), and stud it up! Use a marker to plan out your beauty box placement.  Use desired products to pierce the foam directly by applying a bit of pressure, and created a spot carved out specially for it.  Make sure your Lip balms, mascaras, and other products have just enough depth to stand up straight and stay put.  Push test tubes, all the way down, into foam so the top lip is flush with the foam’s surface. Insert makeup brushes.  For a finished look, place grommets on top of the tubes opening.  Turn a tube into a bud vase for that final touch!
You now have yourself the perfect lip pleaser and a countertop cosmetic solution.  P.S.- Long live the Maybelline New York Beauty Box!
