I am currently taking a class called “Visual Communications”, which apparently is the very first foundation class people take when they go to an art school.  The purpose of this class is to train you so that you are confident with your lines and won’t need to scribble too much while sketching.
Our first week’s homework is training on hand stability.  I’ve heard a lot of artists complain that they have “shaky hands” and so when they ink their drawings, it comes out crap, so I thought I’d share my homework with you guys.
Draw a line about 2 inch long, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Draw a line about half a page long, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Draw a line from one end of the page to the opposite end, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Repeat the above exercise, but with an arc, and then with a wave.
We’re supposed to do this every day before we draw as a warm-up.  Basically just keep drawing lines, arcs, and waves until you fill up an entire 8.5x11 page.  Use felt-tip pens like microns/multiliner/sharpie.  Keep doing this for the rest of your drawing life and your inking will get significantly better.

Here, people who have trouble making smooth lines in their work:  do this, and your penstroke will be as confident as ever.

HOW TO FIX YOUR STYLISH THEME

rootehful:

Did tumblr break your pretty dashboard theme?

Here, let me help you:

Problem 1: My theme doesn’t work at all anymore!

Explanation: Tumblr changed from http:// to https:// but the fix is very easy!

image

Solution:

1. Click your Stylish and click on Editing Installed Themes

image

2. Click on Edit on your theme

image

3. Under the code area, click on Add next to the tumblr url.

image

image

4. Set it to “URLs starting with” - https://www.tumblr.com/

image

5. Click Save and go back to your dash!

——

Problem 2: My dashboard has an ugly blue border!

image

Explanation: Tumblr changed the name of a CCS code class.

Solution:

1. Go to Edit on your Stylish theme.

image

2. Look for the class called ‘#content’ or ‘#dashboard_index #content’ (Note: You probably gotta scroll and manually find it, Ctrl+F usually doesn’t work)

image

image

Note: That class probably has background: or background-color: in it.

3. Copypaste div.l-content.clearfix, in front of it. (If you have both, a class with just ‘#content' and one with  '#dashboard_index #content’, copypaste it in front of both).

image

image

4. Click Save and return to your dashboard. That should hopefully fix it!

Note: If you use Xkit Themes, I can’t really help you right now as the Xkit button is gone. Also see the Xkit blog here. Hopefully that will get fixed soon. (Please be nice to the xkit guy, he’s awesome.)

If you still have troubles, feel free to drop me a message in my ask or submit.
