Manga Tutorials - How to Draw Capes By Rio Length What you first got to consider when drawing a cape is the length of it. Length size may vary starting from the left - Extra Short, Short, Medium, and Long.

Think about it; it would be pretty bizarre if a knight has a short cape! Width The next thing you should consider about a cape is it's width. Most of the times, characters have the wide cape as opposed to the thin and medium widths. Pull (The picture is a back view of a person) When drawing a cape, you have to consider gravity and force. It becomes a bit more complicated when more than one force is pulling on an object. Meanwhile, the right most example has the person pulling upwards. Wind (The picture is a back view of a person) Another force that you have to consider is the wind. First thing you have to consider is where is the wind blowing? From there, draw the cape accordingly.

Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up..." Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures. Free printable mandala coloring pages List of colors The following is a list of colors. A number of the color swatches below are taken from domain-specific naming schemes such as X11 or HTML4. RGB values are given for each swatch because such standards are defined in terms of the sRGB color space. It is not possible to accurately convert many of these swatches to CMYK values because of the differing gamuts of the two spaces, but the color management systems built into operating systems and image editing software attempt such conversions as accurately as possible. The HSV (hue, saturation, value) color space values, also known as HSB (hue, saturation, brightness), and the hex triplets (for HTML web colors) are also given in the following table. Colors that appear on the web-safe color palette—which includes the sixteen named colors—are noted.[1] (Those four named colors corresponding to the neutral grays have no hue value, which is effectively ignored—i.e., left blank.)

Jeanette Winterson on the transforming power of art | Art and design The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester reopens this weekend with the message “Fall in love again”. It’s the right message. Creativity in all its forms is a passionate engagement with making something happen. Like falling in love, art is a disturbance of what is; a reordering of existing material; an encounter with otherness; and a baffled certainty that what is happening – long or short, brief or lasting – has to happen (the urgency of love and making). The happening of art renews, replaces or renames the tired old cliches of the obvious. Every day we move through the world mostly trying to block out the irritations and assaults of frantic living: transport, traffic, workplace, meetings, morons; the mass intrusions of advertising, data, Muzak, babble; the competing madhouses of the daily jostle. When we fall in love we feel alive. Visual artists do the looking on our behalf in the same way as religious orders used to pray on our behalf. Oddjects is what the Victorians were good at.

Happiness is a Needle and Thread Away: New Data on Mental Health Benefits of Knitting Turns out, it is possible to knit yourself into a better state of mind. Clinical psychologist Ann Futterman-Collier who runs the Well Being Lab at Northern Arizona University, is studying what Arizona Public Radio station KNAU calls “Textile Therapy” — the emotional benefits of knitting, as well as crocheting, weaving and quilting. "People basically have a vacation from their problems," she tells KNAU. "They can forget about what’s bothering them, and they get into something in the moment that energizes them, that leads to the repair in mood." Futterman-Collier studied 60 women suffering from various levels of stress. She had them either work with textiles, write or meditate. Buy Bridgestone Tires and Get Rewarded!

Futterman-Collier’s conclusion jibes with other research on the benefits of handcrafting hobbies.
