If you enter into healing, be prepared to lose everything. Healing is a ravaging force to which nothing seems sacred or inviolate. As my original pain releases itself in healing, it rips to shreds the structures and foundations I built in weakness and ignorance.
Blueprint of IKEA
A superb fuck-ton of clothing references.
Obviously two of the images are too large to see on tumblr (because tumblr’s an asshole, sometimes), so simply reverse-image search ‘em and click on the largest size. The one on the left is quite helpful for cloth in general, and the one on the right is just for creating lace.

/Pallet challenge #1.
Obviously not an anatomy post; this is solely for artistic practice.
We’re starting off simple. For this pallet challenge, you assign each horizontal row to be the light source, the shadow, and the colour of the object itself. The colours MAY overlap, but you may not blend them for the purpose of creating another pigment. Do not interchange colours in the three categories (meaning if row 1 is your light source, you may not take a colour from row 2 to be in the light source as well). You can be as detailed or simple as you wish. This challenge doesn’t have to be done with digital colouring; match up the pigments with coloured pencils or crayons or paints or pastels (or whatever medium you want, but same rules apply in terms of blending). Don’t mix mediums; for this challenge, pick one and stick with it. Participating in a time limit is optional; the limit is four days; no more, and try not to make it any less (if you’re done in a day, make yourself do more [unless you’re satisfied with the result… we don’t want to overkill it… but otherwise try to keep going]). Four days might be a while, but, like I said, we’re starting off easy (and, by the way, it’s not four days from when the image was posted; it’s four days from you starting the challenge). Remember that when you assign rows to certain aspects of the image, you can use all colours for that task (meaning if you want row 3 to be the shading, the brightest colour in that row can also be used for shading the other lighter colours). If you want to only incorporate two or three vertical rows for the tasks, that’s fine, but you may not only use one. Vertical rows don’t have to be consistent with one another.
This challenge is not for a prize or anything. This is simply a fun activity for individual practice. Challenge yourself, tumblr artists! Good luck!
When you finish your creation, share it with everyone by reblogging this post and pasting the URL to the art into the text section. I’m excited to see what you’ll create!
