Shivae Studios
Weekly Work Flow March 4th Edition

Been awhile since I posted one of these.  They help clarify everything I need to do, so here goes, beginning with what has been done.  My goal is to pencil twice as much as needs to be done and ink twice as much as needs to be done. Monday through Wednesday are for penciling and inking, Wednesday is for setting up files.  Thursday and Friday are coloring days and Saturday SHOULD be layout and lettering, with Sunday being a break day.  I’m building buffers right now, which are tracked in the calendar! When a buffer reaches one month, I will move into a different routine and rotate through the comics, adding more to the buffers.  I’ve NEVER had buffers before!

We apologize for the disruption. We have been working hard on prepping several site optimizations so that they can be deployed to you and hopefully improve much of your browsing experience.

Unfortunately, an exploit has been brought to our attention that has diverted some time from that and will…

Found out what the exploit was - oh my, please don’t punish those of us who didn’t do that with a rollback!  I’d lose so many pretty babies and crackle scrolls!

Watched this awesome tutorial on painting quick and easy grass.
I can apply it to other things like TREES, SPIKEY THINGS, FUR, FEATHERS, EXPLOSIONS
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

Pinkie Pie Joker!
I originally drew this to go on a button, but I do all my button designs at 10 x 10 @ 600 DPI, meaning they can be nicely printed at up to 20 x 20 inches in size. ;)  This is the layout for the 13 x 19 poster.  Didn’t sell a single one! :D  Oh well, I have them! The idea to turn it into a cute joker card hit me as I tried to think of a background and it dawned on me, that I didn’t need a fancy background for this image. :D- Tiff

12” x 18” image on a 13” x 19” canvas.  Made up for Nightmare Nights - didn’t sell a single one. :D  But Applejack and Winona are so cute.

A couple people asked me how I vary my leaves and trees and honestly, it’s super easy! I’ve never made a tutorial/guide before so I kept this mega simple but I hope someone out there might find it useful at least!

Also, anyone can download the brushes I use for all my art on my tumblr page (: I only use around 5 so go nuts haha
