i just spent 58 fucking dollars on these horrible, horrible prints. the quality is shitty and the colours completely off. some are so dark, like the kelpie boy, that you can’t even make out his fucking face.
they were all set to cmyk colours and jpg:s with 300 dpi. (i think i set the width to at least 2000 px on every piece and they were printed into 20x30) did i do something wrong? i feel so completely stupid. there’s no way i can send these for the giveaway. i just lost like 400 sek and i just want to cry. i have to reprint these obviously, so any help is very much welcome. i’ll probably have to start pumping with my comission information again to make up for this.

Hmn, well my guess would be to go to a local print store and tell them the problem and find out if they can help — I had a similar issue with one of my images, the bg was visible but dark on screen but black on print, luckily it still looks nice… You could also get some photopaper and print out a few tests yourself and adjust the lighting until it looks good, then get it printed correctly (though I’d still tell the printshop about the problem). The issue, as far as I can tell, with dark images, is that paper doesn’t come with LED backlighting =\

I found that when getting my images printed, I had to adjust both the lighting and the saturation in order to get them to print off how they looked on screen. I believe I upped the lighting about 50-70 points on my not-so-dark images(that still had a decent amount of black on them)(and 100+ for ones that were either very dark or had a lot of high contrast) and decreased the saturation until the most vibrant colors started to have a hint of a gray tint(and a note, I’m using Photoshop CS6, so I don’t know if the lighting and saturation adjustments would change based on the program). I will say though, that every printer has their own quirks, and so doing some test prints to see what settings you’ll need to have the best quality print is a VERY good idea. The printers I ended up using printed out even darker and more saturated than the printer I used for the test prints, but they still ended up decent thanks to the adjustments I made.

Okay.  Any more beachy ideas?  I have the 5 (I think) house-location requests in progress that I’ll finish up when I’m done painting.  If you’ve got any more (or anything ridiculous), or any pose suggestions, shout out here.

+1 sprinting down the beach in the rain like puppies  

Jeih getting Ary to help hunt for sharks teeth on the beach and finding lots of cool shells in the process//one of them getting slammed by a rouge wave unexpectedly//them watching a storm that starts out at sea and practically stays in place while it grows and then dissipates//Ary getting a handful of sand crabs when Jeih passes off a large handful of fresh-wet-sand//One of them experiencing the weirdly addictive feeling of wet sand falling through your fingers//seagull chasing//

Just got back from a beach vacation and these things always seem to happen out on the sand x ) Except I find the handful of sand crabs all on my own just by pure luck(and they try to burrow between your fingers once they realize they’ve been spotted)

Thank you and I want to say that you all are SUPER GREAT! 
I wanted to take this opportunity to say that I’d love to get to know you guys! So if there’s anything you’d like to talk about or ask about, then my ask box is open!
You can really ask about anything, but if you need a little help in thinking, then here are some things; if you’d like to know something about me, if you want to let me know something about you, or if you want to talk about favorite monsters/pokemon(or how excited you are for the hoen remakes and MH4 ultimate!!!), or if you’d like to ask about my story Inspired, which I have sadly posted very little about.
Anything is fair game! Personal stuff I’ll answer privately, but if you have an art or Inspired question then I’ll likely post it publicly
I hope to get to know you guys better, and talk to some of you real soon. :>

For anyone who might be wondering about the rathian/rathalos battle image, I’m still working on it. Just very…very slowly. For the majority of this time I haven’t really known how to progress with it, so I’ve just been outlining the rathalos every once in a while while I think about it. I then decided to color/shade a bit to see how it might turn out with the lines, and I’m liking it, so I think I’ll keep chipping away at it this way for a while longer.

New Character/Character sheet! It’s not often you all will get to see actual character sheets for my guys, but when I started moving around the sketches of this guy to ink it soon turned into a full reference. I literally had no intentions of it going this far, but since my hand seemed okay with it then I decided to roll with it.
So here’s Amara, the monster-bird-person!

Sometimes, when I make a character sheet, I have a desire to leave the character info as what I have on the rough draft.(another description I had for personality was ‘lil’ shit’) But then I get the feeling that I should try to be…"Professional" or something.
Like this blog was supposed to be…Yeah. I think I managed to dork that up.

Inkay #12?

From the hardmode pallete. The green is what gave me the most trouble in this one.

I kept seeing that palette meme going around, but wasn’t particularly fond of all the super-high-saturation or low-value ranges. For anyone that wants to try something a little different, here you go.
Have fun, everyone!

FROM ME TO YOU. 

Both this and the previous meme page are still valid. : > If you have any requests, send them on over!
