Varku's Ask/FAQ Thread
Due to the amount of PMs I receive that usually contain the same questions, I think it'd be a good idea for me to open up a personal thread that answers the most common questions I receive, so people don't have to go through the effort of PMing me questions about things easily answered, and I'll get some peace of mind as well, haha.
...Plus, sometimes people send me pretty rude stuff, and I'd like to avoid that with this as well. Hopefully!
I'll post a link to this in my signature. Feel free to ask me any additional questions as well if you like. Bear in mind that I'm not a very interesting person though :þ I'll post out the most common questions + answers in a bit.
I do have a question though...
How did you come up with your username? I've always wondered that... :P
Ohhh, okay! Thanks for telling me, I like knowing the origins of people's usernames :P
And that aardvark is too cute! I may or may not have squee'd when I saw it...
How do I get my lines to look like this? They don't fade out even when I use the smoothing tool. :(
Yeah I'm on a pc. No tablet because I'm not bold enough to ask my parents since I technically already have an Ipad mini. So anyways how can it be faked?
I will definitely add weight. Thanks for the tip! :)
Yes mouse isn't easy, but I've been doing it for awhile and SAI helps me out. I've gotten pretty good at it.
Though hair is a nusance to draw as well as face shapes to make my vikings more original looking. :)
I used multiple layers to finish up this, doesn't seem like I did a lot, though.
I finished it with a Wacom tablet which I bought few days ago. I kinda can't draw straight lines these days because I broke my right hand haha. So it was hard to do it with my left one, at least I did a thing. Oh well, I forgot the details on the neck. I did blur a little at some parts, like it's going to get darker. I did the exact same with the sky, underbelly, the mouth, eyes and the reflection on the scales
I'll do what you said there. SAI is yet too bad for me to make good eyes, I will use Photoshop on my next drawings ;)
Photoshop is most used to edit pictures, like, to make others believe a monster is real etc. But some people used Photoshop for drawing, so I don't mind.
Sure why not. I am probably buying the full version if interested.
Nothing compared to when bying Camtasia which costs around 300 dollers. Or was it 800? Wait, I can't remember haha.
May I ask about your current profile pic? Are those cucumbers? Or pickles?? Whoever it is seems so happy to be surrounded by flying pickles??? I'm confused...
Yay, ben niet de enige Nederlander hier XD
Haha idd XD
Is de Engelse stem van Morrie (Ruffnut) door een Nederlander gesproken? Andree Vermeulen lijkt mij een Nederlandse naam.
I can actually sorta understand what you guys are saying. My sister is learning Nederlands, so I can understand a few words. And I'm actually Afrikaans, and Afrikaans and Nederlands sometimes have similar words.
Ek het net so bietjie verstaan van wat julle sê. Dit was Afrikaans, as julle ge wonder het.
(Had to Google Translate ;))
Ja, presies. Dit doen :D (Translation: Yes, exactly. It is.)
Ha! That is a cool (didn't know what else to call it) name. I like the names too. Bloemfontein, Hartbeespoort Dam, Pilanesberg. Some people ask me sometimes if there are Lions and Leopards walking in the streets of South Africa. But no, there aren't. There are Leopards in the mountains, but they never come into the cities and towns. No Lions, though.
Nee, nikse Leeus hier nie. ;)
No, I can't say I do. What is it?
It's a celebration in the Netherlands.
It's difficult to explain so I hope Varku can -_-
Meer. Bij mij in het dorp denken ze er ook zo over, want bij de intocht hebben alle pieten zichzelf extra zwart geschminkt dit jaar. =3
Het is een Nederlandse ''traditie'' dat ze zwart zijn, dus ik wil niet dat dat verandert wordt. Ik heb nog 3 kleinere broers en zussen hidenog geloven, en voor hun is het nu raar dat ze ook andere kleuren hebben.(Sorry voor als jij minder wilt..)
Bij ons waren er gelukkig geen demonstranten maar er was wel veel politie. Het lijkt mij echt vervelend als het feest wordt verpest voor de kids. =/
