In terms of income, how is inprnt vs. society6?

Asked by Anonymous

inPRNT is generally better unless you’re marking your print prices up super high. At both sites you set the price of your print yourself, but at inPRNT you split the profits of each sale 50/50 every time, whereas at Society6 there’s a minimum base price which is their take, and if you want any money off the sale of the print you have to set the price higher.

So if you have an 8x10 print priced at $15 on both sites your profit from each sale is

Society6: $2.42 

inPRNT: $7.50

Hey guys! I moved my print store from society6 to inPRNT a few days ago. Here’s the link to it! The preview quality for the images is a little fuzzy for some reason, but I’ve been hearing for a long time that the print quality from inPRNT is much, much higher than society6 and colors are brighter, etc.

In addition, the shop has been updated with new prints such as the Ainmere and Ysolde piece, the updated mermaid, both of the pinups and my Role Models piece, among a couple others.

Sorry if someone have already asked it but-- how do you pick your colours ? I always sorta experiment as I go and sometimes things become muddy-- your mermaid colours are simple but so gorgeous *__* Thanks you !

If I don’t have a color scheme in mind from the beginning, I either look at photos for inspiration or torment myself for 6 hours trying to find something that looks good.

Any tips for thumbnailing/planning, especially when it comes to compositions?

Asked by Anonymous

When you know what kind of shapes you’re going to use to represent the feeling of a piece, I’ve found it helps to start a thumbnail by drawing that shape first every time. For example, if you have an image you know you want to suck your viewer in and drown them*, maybe you choose to have all the lines of the composition spiral into the focal point of the image, around which everything else swirls to create that sense of density and pull at that point. So you’d draw that spiral first in every composition in the various places and then work from there.

Hello! I just wanted to ask how exactly you achieve such smooth darks in your paintings? Do you use watercolor washes or a type of ink? Sorry to be a bother

Asked by Anonymous

Not a bother! For absolute black you don’t have to be too precious, I just layer on ink or gouache over and over and over again until it’s good enough. Gouache, especially acrylic gouache, is pretty dang black. For a not quite black, though, your best bet is to just get the entire paper really wet and use your biggest brush and just make the broadest strokes you can, working quickly to avoid any drying and streaks. If it’s not dark enough by the time your first wash is done, wait for the whole thing to completely dry before repeating the process, and again and again.

Zoom the problem with finishing pictures is that some life is always lost going from sketch to paint for me.

Zoom It’s finally done. I’ve wanted to redo the oldversion since… basically since I drew it.
Inspired by that post going around about mermaids being women who were supposed to drown.

I started with digital art recently. Would you give me some advice? :) (Love your art!)

Asked by Anonymous

I can’t think of anything really specific to digital art besides to stay far, farrrr away from the dodge tool, burn tool, and blur tool. Assuming you’re using photoshop. Don’t be afraid of layer modes. Beyond that, the rest is kind of just the same stuff you’d be learning if you used physical media (minus the stuff about color mixing/layering of course).

Anyone else got some helpful advice? I started doing digital 12 years ago so I really can’t remember what’d be helpful for a newbie.
