Hayao Miyazaki’s advice on how to use transparent watercolors in the booklet of the Ghibli Museum Sketching Set.
Title: My recommendation. Transparent watercolor is good.
“transparent watercolor has a strong habit”, “do not paint stickily and paint after wiping the extra paint and water off”, “paint thinly the bright part”, “had better not use white”, “paint other color after under color has dried”, “let’s mix the color and use it.”
Light the wool which protrudes on a new painting brush. Anything is fine for a water vessel. A retractable knife is enough for the pencil sharpener. One 2B pencil is enough for the pencil. Divide the palette into seven zones: Bright, Dark, Black, Green 1, Green 2, Blue 2, Blue 1. Do not use the eraser. Do not draw a guideline for a picture.
“these painting materials are enough for a 2-week trip and preparations for a movie.”
Found this on Nausicaa.net along with the news that the new Takahata and Miyazaki Ghibli films for next summer are expected be announced this week!
Casually posts this at 3 am when no one is going to see it.
but FOLDS hoyl shit folds folds are so awesome man you literally have no idea I like drawing folds som uch I’ll put them in places where they don’t even belong sometimes. Honestly this is far from definitive and is just my understanding of how folds works gleamed from hours upon hours staring at strangers pants on mass transit, so don’t take my word for it, do your own study! Look at your own jeans in the mirror! look at other peoples jeans! google jeans on the internets! Each different fit is going to come with it’s own folds, depending on factors like the cut of the leg and how much fabric there is and how heavy it is and man there are just so many variables and things to think about it’s awesome
I’m currently working on a drawing where I’ve already drawn the jeans so haha I could have used this. Reblogging for future reference though.
