My wash brush set is now the Paints & Wet Media super set! 100 brushes! Reblog for a chance at a free set!

Get it here!

The old set contained nine brushes. The new set contains one hundred. That’s more than ten times the brushes of the old set! Oils, acrylics, wash brushes, digital concept art brushes, and more, all for Manga Studio 5 and Clip Paint.

NEW Concept Painting brushes designed for digital character and environmental art workflows.

NEW High Res Wash brushes with detailed, high resolution repeating patterns for more convincing digital watercolor work.

And a heap more! I’ve consolidated existing sets and added new brushes to simplify things moving forward. All my paint and wash brushes are now in one place.

Frenden’s brushes are amazing, go get them!

ancestralvision said: What do you think, if you care at all, about people being mad about Manara's cover for Spider-Woman?

royalboiler:

I have some thoughts on it sure. 

I’ve typed a lot about Manara in the past. Like Here and Here 

I get why people are upset. My understanding was that the book was marketed toward women — and I’ve seen a lot of people claiming the reason people were upset was “a hypersensitivity to erotic images “. I like what my pal Amy Claire said “ i like the booty and i dont like only ever being seen as a booty” 

So yeah, putting that Manara cover and interior artist and noted porn tracer Greg Land on a book meant to be sold as something for women to identify with seems like a huge fuck up on Marvel’s part. 

also, Manara is soo bad at defending his position: 

Like here— “ For evolutionists, including me, on the other hand, women’s bodies have taken this form over the millennia in order to avoid the ‘extinction of the species, in fact. If women were made exactly as men, with the same shape, I think we would have already been extinct for a long time.”

This reads like him saying that only women who look like Liv Tyler ever get pregnant. 

but yeah, I do still argue that Manara has done work that I find incredibly interesting and personally important. His Bergman series is one of the things that I go to when I want to think of new directions that comics can go.

I would love the discussion to be about his larger body of work.  —There’s a lot of stuff in it that I find more worrying than the Spider-woman cover, There’s a lot of erotocizing of rape. and granted I think anything is fair game in ideas on paper. but there’s misogyny there that I don’t wanna co-sign. 

So yeah, Eminem, Bukowski, Manara— another one to the list of artists whose work I love that I have to qualify that I don’t always agree with. and I’m well aware that’s possible for me to do that because I am not the subject of their weird shit.

PERSONS OF INTEREST
I’m starting a new thing: for $50, I’ll draw any person you want, be they real or fake, as long as they are moderately famous and/or universally recognizable. The catch is, I’ll only draw them once. So if you’d like a 5” x 7” drawing of Salman Rushdie or Steve Zissou, you have to be the first or that’s it. Full details here, where you can also buy one! All moneys will help me pay bills, which I’m way behind on. Thanks! 

Dustin is good people, and an excellent illustrator. go get something!
