hecklesyeah asked: Hi. I'm Thea. I love your artwork, btw. And this is a bit random especially since I'm not sure if you accept requests or if you ship them, but would it be possible for you to make a Hooked Queen one? Lana and Colin just look so good together!
Hi, Thea! =) I’m Helena.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoy my works. <3<3<3
Of course people can send me requests about ouat. Since I got hooked by this series it doesn’t bother me at all to draw its characters. About the Hooked Queen, I don’t ship them (I’m obviously a cs mafia member)… BUT… considering last ep… MAYBE I could draw a
threesome fanart ReginaxHook leaving Emma behind. XD It’s an idea. (I want so much to see Hook snobbing her. u.û I like Emma, but I think she needs to run after him a little bit.)
So I can’t promise you anything since I have lots of school works to finish, but I’ll keep that in mind. =)
Anonymous asked: hi i was just wondering if you would mind sharing your brush settings ? they're so gorgeous
Mu brush settings? You mean, for SAI or for Photoshop? For SAI I use the standard brush with “simple circle” or “bristle” form. I think they are great the way they are, don’t need to modify anything.
For Photoshop I have already answered this question here, so I’ll give you the link of the post, since I took time to explain and take screenshots. =)
If you have a more specific question about this, don’t hesitate to ask again. :)
warriorstaerskye asked: Hey! I just want to say I'm loving your "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" art (it's one of my favorite faerietales) and I'm also enjoying your OUAT fanart (Outlaw Queen and Captain Swan!) I'm curious, what brushes do you use?
Oh, thank you very much for your constant support, Warriorstaerskye! I always see you liking and rebbloging stuff. <3<3<3
And… COOL!! We share the same interests! *-*
So, about brushes.
Someone had already asked me somethign like that and I see now I haven’t replied like I should have, because… Well, I’m checking now my list of brushes and there are some I forgot mentioning, so I’m deleting the old reply and doing it properly this time. Most generally I use that round basic form 100% hard.
But sometimes I use Blackeri’s one. Don’t ask me why or when. I don’t know why I keep using this brush since I downloaded it the first time. It’s kinda instinctive. Not very useful to say that though.
Well, for all basic layers of colours I use this one. And for sketching too.
You can download it here: http://www.imaginefx.com/02287754332606896693/the-custom-brush-guide-skin-and-hair.html and here is the direct link for the brushes pack: http://www.imaginefx.com/02287754332606896693/support.zip(it comes with other brushes too but you can delete it later. I can’t reupload her work so I’ll just give your her links.)
For a harder look when painting without lines, I use this amazing Sandara’s brush
Download them here: http://sandara.deviantart.com/art/Coloring-tutorial-01-124764595 (and also check her tutorial. I learned everything I know from her. <3)
Oh, and I almost forgot. I use Paint Tool SAI too. It comes with very unique standard brushes. Very useful and not expensive. About 50 dollars I guess. http://www.systemax.jp/en/sai/
IF sometimes you see some stuff you believe it wasn’t done with any of these brushes, it’s probably because I did it on paper, with watercolours, coloured pencils, mechanical pencil, textures, etc. =)
And that’s all. Just ask if you have any other questions. It might take some days to reply, but I’ll surely do. <3
