Hey guys! A lot of you are asking about my recent textures and how to do them. I’m normally a cardboard-photo-texture-set-to-overlay-on-a-layer-above-your-drawing kinda gal, but lately I’ve been messing around with new grittier stuff.
so here’s my hard pixel airbrush made in photoshop. It’s super fun.
(THE FULL IMAGE SIZE IS HERE. USE THAT)
Load the image in photoshop. Select the whole canvas and go to Edit> Define Brush Preset. Select this brush from your brush menu.
Now go to brush settings and use these settings:
I would just upload the brush file itself but I don’t know how to do that. I ain’t a wizard. I don’t know how all the world works! Whatever! Learn how to make brushes yourself!! It’s very useful!
This brush is best used in high resolution (always work in high res!) It looks like soft grit when zoomed out, but when you get up close, you can see all the hard pixels.

Random recent art junk. I guess I really want to draw people with pupil-less eyes lately!

This is all I’m gonna show you of my first board because holy cow I can’t stand to look at the rest of it, my eyes will fall out and I’ll vomit oil and spark to death. Here’s Will-E Badger doing a dance that was cut (but his leg twist got to remain!) and the first ever drawing of Old Goldie.
Soos and the Real Girl marks my first episode storyboarding for Gravity Falls!
I was so nervous, I had no idea what I was doing back then. Thank goodness for our wonderful, hilarious director Matt Braly ( radrappy ) for being SO patient and so encouraging. Thank you Matt!!
On this episode, I board alongside the INCREDIBLE Sabringa Cotugno ( arythusa ) and Alonso Ramirez. They’re both so insanely talented and kind. I was starstruck from day 1 and still am!
Enjoy the silly fruits of our labor!
Soos and the Real Girl premieres Monday, September 22 on Disney XD at 8:30 PM! Check your local listings!!!
