Do you know what’s really unpleasent? Cosplayers who use body paint, but don’t seal up properly and end up smearing paint everywhere!
So to attempt to alleviate this, this giveaway was born out of a string of sleep deprivation and a silly hope that it’d remind people how important sealing is. uwu
Okay that’s neat, but what are the prizes?:
- 3 oz of Neutral Set
(So you’re not shiny and don’t rub off on everything)
- 4 Ben Nye Cream Colors of your choosing in .25 oz portions
(Pick from here, please. Typically a base, a lighter color to highlight, and a darker color to shadow/contour; I really don’t care what colors you choose. Whether you pick red, blue, green, and white, or all grey, it’s all up to you!)
- 2 oz of Final Seal
(So your paint doesn’t smudge and lasts forever)
Nitty Gritty Details:
- One Like and Four reblogs
- Please no sideblogs/giveaway blogs!
- Continental US only please, as the site I’m ordering them from cannot ship certain items overseas and shipping to Canada is just too much.
So sorry international, but if you keep your eyes out, I’m doing another giveaway early next month that you can be eligible for! c:
- You don’t have to be a follower!
- Please leave/tag #Eve Gives and #Giveaway so people who don’t wish this to clutter up their dash can saviour either tag. <3
- Ends July 6th whenever I wake up and tally the last notes~
So remember, base paint, highlight & contour, powder to hell and back, other make up, then final seal!
(Sorry this is so long, tumblr won’t let me un-indent all the things without messing the hyperlinks up BLUH. So press J to skip.)
I just went back through over 900 liked posts and dug out all the art tutorials so i can keep track of them. I guess this might be helpful to some of you guys, so here you go.
Some of these were gutted from posts where the original was deleted and so can’t be linked to in the masterpost list - especially one by Tumblr user melkh who has since either deleted or changed their url, so props to them.
Here we go then!
Alchemy - this is a really fun program. You play around making abstract shapes until you start to see something in them, kind of like a Rorschach test. Then you use the shapes as a base to draw it from.
MyPaint - a pretty decent painting program that also has the benefit of working on Unix systems.
openCanvas 1.1 - I haven’t used openCanvas in years but it was a nice program with a pretty unique feel to it.
ArtRage - Only used this a couple of times donkey’s years ago just before I got oC, but I’ve heard good things about it.
The GIMP - In a similar vein to Photoshop, but free. I couldn’t get on with it when I tried it out a few years ago, but it’s pretty popular and is available on Unix systems and Macs.
Photoshop - Standard painting fare. Probably the most flexible program (particularly the latest versions) but not designed to act in a “natural” way. If you’ve used it for painting versus something like Painter you know what I mean. Who the fuck pays for it though? Google “Photoshop tumblr masterpost” and take your pick.
Paint Tool Sai - Far more affordable and definitely worth paying for if you can. The brushes are very decent (especially when they’ve been tweaked a little), the gui is simple and intuitive, and I dare you to find a program with which making smooth lineart is easier.
Corel Painter - My program of choice for most things. More tools than you could ever possibly use and pretty cheap on a student license, providing that you can prove you’re a student! It’s got a few bugs but if you want realism or a more natural feel than PS or SAI this is the program for you.

Okay so the part where he just leans back and free-falls is probably my favorite piece of animation in the entire movie, okay?
