Keeping up with YesterdayA Terrible Art Blog

Sanosa's Art Blog

I post mainly Welcome to Night Vale, Steam Powered Giraffe, and occasionally Original Artwork.

Me actually uploading art, however, is a rare thing. I have a tendency to forget that I have technically an art blog. For this, I apologize.

I am also, in reality, terribly boring.

It’s finally finished! And finally ready to be shared. This was my contribution to the WTNV Tabletop Role-Playing Game manual, which you can find HERE! It’s a pretty awesome idea so check it out and have fun!

Also, this is the first time I’ve been able to really show off some of my headcanons so I hope you enjoy them. UvU~ Left to right is Station Management (the original one(s)), Cecil, Kevin, Dana, and Vanessa (with a clean, wet rag).

200 followers!! I am so excited, you guys all rock. AND SO! I don’t have anything interesting enough to give away (seriously I’m pretty broke) so instead, I thought I’d take some requests as celebration.

It doesn’t have to be nightvale, hell I’ll take OC requests, fandom requests, anything you’d like! I will draw the next 3 requests I get in my askbox.

Happy drawing guys!

Just wanna remind the crowd that this is still happening, I’ve only got one request so far so get em in so I have something to do instead of studying :D

I just recently go into Nightvale and am a long time admirer of your art. I just want to say your art is stunning and you are such an inspiration to me. Thank you from posting that thing about not being shy and afraid to talk to you. You are very awesome. :) So who or what inspires you?

Welcome to the fandom!!……..I HAVE ADMIRERS?! *helpless flailing* I’m not entirely sure what to do with this information thank you so much!!! Yeah, I’m not mean and I hardly ever bite so my askbox is always open.

Who or what inspires me? Hmm… well on the less serious side I’d have to say video games and fantasy books, my love for which has inspired a deep life long love of the unreal (fantasy, sci-fi, horror, etc)

On a more serious level that general unnerving feeling when you look at something that reminds you of what could be real but you know objectively really isn’t. Like when you look at a mermaid and you see separately the parts that are supposed to be human and the parts that are supposed to be fish, and while you can recognize all the parts and know in your mind what it is you’re looking at, you know objectively that such a creature could never truly exist in our understanding of the world. (tldr; psychology)

On a less existential level, Chuck Close and Dan Luvisi. They kinda rule.

I just wanted to say, your art is so lovely and it blows me away each time I see it! As someone who is struggling badly to do digital painting, I was wondering if you had any tips? I know practise makes perfect and all, but I just thought i'd ask :)) Your wtnv tabletop stuff is SO AMAAAAZING WOW!

And it still blows my mind whenever someone compliments my art thank you soo much!!!

As far as tips go, I try to treat it like I do traditional drawing. My general process is under sketching, basic lines, flat color, then render color. It helps when you have a decent pen tablet too, I don’t think that I could do digital art without any pressure sensitivity. Any I advice I can give should be taken lightly as no two artists draw alike, so what I usually do won’t always work for everyone.

Generally the most important things you could ever get familiar with, in any drawing program (though I use photoshop), is brushes and layers.

With brushes, you have to try out a bunch of them. I personally go back to the same brush, this one:

I use that brush for my under sketching, color filling, and my rendering. Having both shape dynamics and the transfer (pen pressure being selected for both opacity and flow) is tremendously useful. One should never limit themselves to just one brush though, so try a bunch out to see which ones suit your drawing style the best.

Layers are also super important, and one thing you should spend a lot of time fiddling with. I use a ton of layers I swear, the manual drawing of Carlos was nearly 50 layers big. I especially like using the layer styles, to do neat color effects, and the opacity a lot.

Last and most important bit of advice is never be afraid to use tutorials. I have a massive reference folder for all of my old favorite digital art tutorials. I don’t even use most of the techniques I learned from them, but each one will teach you something different about using digital art, which will help build your overall skill each time.

(wow this got really long really quickly sorry bout that)

My contributions for the WtNV Table-Top Role Playing Game!

I did all of the character profiles, which granted took a lot of time. But I got excited, and I didn’t like the idea that any of the character profiles would be done in different styles (breaks in continuity bother me).

If you guys like table top games, check it out!! It runs on a simple 2d6 system, and would probably work best as a story driven campaign. If you guys do decide to play it send me your campaign stories I wanna hear em!!
