I've gone through about 15 pages of your writing references tag lol, but i can't find anything to really help me out! I was wondering if you had any references/masterlists for terms regarding different jobs etc, like working in a garage or to do with cars/motorbikes. Thanks!!!
we’ll see if we can find some! and I’ll see if we can find stuff about mechanics too!
any refs/tutorials on how to draw a real life person as a cartoon? but like a realistic-ish cartoon? i don't know if i'm wording this right.
Haiii I love this blog! Do you guys/gals have any tutorials for how to digitally paint/color/shade a profile portrait?
Since there is no camel tag, can I request some camel references? Personally, I'm looking for dromedary and domesticated, but having some bactrian and/or wild camels couldn't hurt! Thanks in advance!
sure thing! we’ll try and find some p soon!

Fire noise offers an interesting combination of white and imulse noise and respresents a great natural alternative to synthetic white noise.
leaving that little quote there from the website. the fire noises helps trick my body into not feeling so cold ((when I crash I start getting shivery really bad))
it also has a deep bass crackle that helps calm my mind and helps me focus, with just the right amount of higher noises to keep my head interested while I work. if rain isn’t so much your thing, I’d really suggest this one. I tend to flop between the two, and sometimes I set them to animate on Zen mode, it helps keep the sounds more lively.
it might help you too. I find that natural white noise helps me work and be productive, even when my head doesn’t want to cooperate!
this is my favorite rain preset, which helps me focus with gentle thunder and rhythmic trickling noises.
I was thinking about posting some of my favorite presets on my noise, ones that help me be productive you know? if you’ve been on my stream recently you’ve probably heard these in the background, they really do help!
would you guys like to see more of these?

Hi! Do you know any blog abou photography tutorials and tips? Thanks a lot! x
Unfortunately, we don’t have a huge photography tag here at Art-And-Sterf. But I can direct you to Froggie’s Light School! It’s run by Ben Grelle (a.k.a. TheFrogman) and it’s an amazing place to go for tips and inspiration!
Hello Mirre! Could you give any tips for using 3d Colors! ? I know the inbuilt tutorial covers all basic controls but maybe something you've learned besides that? Your works made with this program are just wonderful (and one of the reasons I started using this app), I'd really appreciate your advice. :> Have a nice day!
OOOooohh! Yes lemme see if there’s something I can share hmm…
One of the first things you should do is to go to the System Settings on your 3DS to calibrate your touch screen. (System settings>other settings>touch screen)
Use a pencil since that’s way more comfortable to draw with than the 3DS pen. So we want to make sure the screen is calibrated for your pencil of choice.
When you start Colors!3D you also wanna go to the settings and disable the “scale to cover screen” setting. It’ll make you unable to draw all the way to the corners and end of the touch screen - but it will be more precise which is appreciated for linearts and details!
One nice trick that I’ve discovered is that you can use the soft brush for lineart instead of the sharp round brush.
- Set the size down to absolute smallest on the soft brush and you’ll get really thin and crisp lines like this:
(this is a self portrait btw lol ^)
- Another neat thing is the bristled brush, it’s great to use for blending but you can also use it to create a texture:
Set the brush to around the largest size and then just simply “tap” with your pen on the touch screen until you’re satisfied.
^ if you wanna add a color mood to your drawing, take a shade of color on a separate layer on top of the rest and use the eraser (set to mid-low opacity) to gradually make the color more transparent. On the image above I used a icy cool blue to make it look more cold as if the characters are outdoors in mid-winter!
Since you cannot lock layers in Colors!3D you have to manually clean up the drawing. Transparent brush strokes and colors are very easy to miss, so I recommend you fill the bottom layer with a strong, saturated color. That’ll make it way easier to spot all the bleeding colors! :D
It’s possible to create straight lines by using a second pen and hold down both simultaneously. It looks very wonky and weird in the photo since I had to use only one hand. This trick might require some practise before you get the hang of it (this is apparently some sort of bug that occur since the 3DS touch screen doesn’t really support multitouch.)
This trick can be useful if you wanna create things like rain for example! First I randomly create straight white lines on medium opacity.
Then I go over with the eraser (mid-high opacity) and repeat the trick but more diagonally.
Repeat this on the background layer and one on a layer on top of the drawing - this will create nice depth when you view the image with the 3D turned on!
I think that’s all I can come up with for now, I really hope this will be useful for you! :D
