For this assignment:
We were asked to design a tattoo to represent our personality.
I’ve always wanted a tattoo but I am afraid of needles so I haven’t gotten one yet.
I designed this, it’s a moon that is also a spooky eye. Yellow because the moon is usually kind of yellow, blue because of ‘blue moons’ and orange because of the blood moon. How does a spooky moon eye reflect my personality? Well it’s weird and spooky but cartoon-y and charming at the same time. If I got this tattoo I’d get one on inside of both wrists.
I made this using firealpaca, a free drawing program.
First select the circle from the top bar and use the dot to drop the anchor point where you want it. then draw a circle.
Then with the circle tool still on draw several short dashes around the sides.
Then turn the tool off and draw a little dash in the center.
On a new layer under your line art you use the bucket tool to dye inside the circle the color of your choice. Then you must create a new layer then check of ‘Clipping mask’ over the color layer.
Now take a color paler than your base color and swipe up one side for the shine, then take a color darker than your base color and swipe up the other to create the shadow.
Merge the clipping mask down and create a new one. use the paint bucket tool and dye the colors a new color off your choice.
Then all you have to do is save it as either a .png or a .jpeg (if you don’t select these it will save as an .mpd which only opens in firealpaca.
