And let’s add one detail right here- right now would be a GREAT time to order these, or anything else from Tormented Artifacts at this point. (Yes, I need to be able to pay my bills before stuff gets turned off)And, if you drop him a note, he can likely work out a custom design, if you have one in mind. (Though now that his intarwebsHAVE been turned off, replies are likely going to be a tad delayed.)
Help an artist in dire straits! An artist who does AMAZING leatherwork! An artist who recreated Tony Stark’s repulsor beam both in leather, and steampunked out to the max!
He also makes art and makes masks and makes clawed gloves and makes bootwings that lace onto your big stompy boots and he will work in bone if you really want something fashioned from bone.
What more do you want? A lollipop?

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
When something doesn’t look right, but you can’t figure out why, make a copy of your layer and try some of these tricks. Staring too long at a piece without breaks is often where I “kill” a piece and lose scope of the work as a whole. Thanks to letsplaygods for the supersaturate trick.
I already flip and value check often. Though those other things seem like pretty niffty tricks to keep in mind when i’m spending more than 4 hours straight on a piece//working on something from start to finish.
Also for the love of god remember to zoom out. I’ve had so many awful moments of “this is lookin’ greaFFFFFUUUUUUUU”
I use the flip trick religiously, and the value check when I remember to. Zooming out is also VERY important. It has been hard to teach myself to work initially zoomed out. Focusing in too tight can totally mess up your piece. Remember, people see the big picture first, then the details. That’s how you should work as well.
