I made a walkthrough of my process for drawing faceted stones! Judging by the timestamps from the screenshots I took, drawing this one stone took an hour and three minutes, although I know I went and checked tumblr a couple times while I was working, so let’s just call it an hour.
Now MISCELLANEOUS NOTES
- This walkthrough assumes you already know how to use layer masks, clone stamp, and lasso tool. There’s also one part where I didn’t label it, but I inverted the selection so I could keep my lines consistent. It’s in the third image.
- Unfortunately I can’t really help with colour choice and the actual colouring of the pinwheel shape that makes of the back facets, but you can kind of see that I tended to colour with lines that cut across the facets and and kept the outer parts of the facets darker. It would probably be best to find a reference to work from!
- This particular cut of stone is called the ‘brilliant’ cut.
- There’s actually a lot of internal reflection business that goes on in a stone, but I elected to ingore all of it since at a distance you can’t really tell anyway.
now GO FORTH AND DAZZLE YOUR FRIENDS WITH YOUR SPARKLE
Is that a dalek with a lightning shaped scar on its forehead?
It’s the Dalek Who Lived.
plot twist: harry potter was a dalek the whole time
‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.’
x10 meaning added to that quote.
Also this quote:
“Tell me one last thing, said Harry. Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
Hours of life spent on tumblr, worth it for this.
Welp. School is starting tomorrow. I care too much about my grades this year to let anything get in my way. I’ll come back to post occasionally, but for now…
THIS BLOG IS ON HIATUS UNTIL WINTER BREAK.
