School’s back in session, which means the return of Let’s Speak English!

This is number 25, and it’s the first longform story! I still get gleeful when I really think about this night. So many other little things happened that I couldn’t include, which might make it into strips later.

For instance, Shinoda, one of the guitarists, threw his pick into the crowd and I snatched it and was able to have him sign it. I also got a chance to talk to Wowaka briefly and have him sign a CD. Also 50 other things!!

If you like crazy indie rock, you can check out Hitorie’s videos on youtube. I believe they’re all available in America now!

And I’m sure I’ll see ya soon with plenty more goofy shenanigans in Japan!

Art tips:

robotsandfrippary:

Just draw the damn hands.  Stop ending them at stumps at the wrist. Stop hiding them behind someone’s back.  Draw them.  Yeah, you’re probably bad at them, guess what? Everyone is.  And you’re not going to get better by not drawing them.

So draw the damn hands.

Dan Fessler’s HD Index Painting Technique let’s you paint pixel art in Photoshop in a non-destructive manner, and lets you use pretty much every tool in a perfectly pixel-gradient fashion!

The article gives you everything you need to try it out for yourself.It’s easy to set up and use, and the results are so fucking cool.

Hi :> I always use Graphics Gale for pixel art (you can download it here (There is a free version but you can’t save gif)
About the canvas… mm—- When I open a new canvas is usually between 500x500 or 800x800 … But that doesn’t matter. I put a grid to give me an idea of the measures, and at the end I adjusted the image.
 The important part is that the picture is in 256 colors or 8 bit, in this way the pallete works like “Each square of the palette is one color”… so you can move the position of the colors or change a particular color…
Here you can add the palette (or a default one in ‘preferences’)

Tap, y en español: - Por si a alguien mas le es de utilidad- Para pixel art siempre uso Graphics Gale (AQUI esta para descargar, hay una versión gratix pero no puedes guardar en gif)
Sobre el canvas… mmm—-  Cuando abro un nuevo lienzo suele ser entre 500x500 o 800x800… Pero no importa mucho eso. Solo pongo una rejillas para hacerme una idea del las medidas, y luego ya lo ajusto al terminar.
 Lo importante es que esté en 256 colores/8 bit. De esta manera la paleta funciona así como… que “cada cuadrado de la paleta es un color”. Entonces puedes cambiar los colores de posición o cambiar un color en concreto directamente… (Posiblemente lo más peculiar del Gale es esto B: )
aka puedes poner una paleta (o una por defecto en preferencias)
