Some of these may be in the wrong category. Some may need to be in another category! Do tell me (through my ask box) if I need to change or add something! Have fun looking through these accounts!

I hope this sort of helps a little. I wasnt entirely shure how to do this, so I just sort of gave some tips?

(Sorry for any spelling mistakes I might have made)

So I’m not sure what to call this

But I figured I’d at least try to impart my knowledge of (hank hill voice) weapons and weapon accessories.

If you like this, tell me, and I might do another tutorial some time!

i mean these are simple smooch poses but… they are so fun 2 do *_*

As per request (thanks, singingrabbitskull!), I did a half-tutorial, half-sporadic notes on how I generally render basic expressions.

There’s already a lot of cool tutorials that exist on how to do expressions, so I tried to just look at a lot of really minor details that I’ve used but haven’t seen commonly passed down.

required disclaimer: this is just how I go about it, feel free to ignore bits, steal bits, do whatever you want with them. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions scream at my inbox!

Tutorial: Hands while kissing - by Auroracarina-Chan on DeviantArt

Since the tutorial is marked as “mature”, you cannot use the share-function to post it all on tumblr (srsly, I understand why ppl don’t wanna mark their work as mature… it limit your work to be seen a bit too much in some cases).

The reason why this tutorial is marked as mature is… I THINK it’s because you see some nipples, but it’s a ridiculous reason to make it unable to post on tumblr (dA has a share function where you can post art from dA with proper source and everything.)

Anyway, I took some screenshots from the tutorial, so you guys can see it without having to be a member on dA.

And here’s a screenshot that couldn’t get into the photoset:


more kissing! two kissing posts in a row! i’m out of control!
