Emofuri Tutorial PART II! How to make a PSD (Half-fullbody)



hey everyone! Lupin here again with another Emofuri tutorial! this time, i’m gonna teach you all how to make a PSD to import into Emote/Emofuri! now, if you’ve already made your first Emofuri animation, this isn’t going to be very hard for you! this one, though, is more complicated and includes more folders and layers for various emotions! so yeah, this one’s definitely going to be larger. for this one, i will be using this template:


this one can be found in one of the Emote PSD template folders (there’s two, this one is in the first folder). i will also be using my Oni OC for this one (she’s got those demonic red eyes and horns, yo. just putting that out there!) (EDIT: she’s done!)


DIFFICULTY:  (3.5/5 due to the insane amount of layers)

PROGRAM: Paint Tool SAI, Emofuri

OK! let’s get started, then! click the readmore if you’re interested!

ive been asked a few times how i draw back-views, especially for character sheets so i wanted to share a little trick I learned a while back that’s really really helpful especially if you’re used to drawing things from the front and need help getting the proportions right from the back view.

You don’t ALWAYS have to do this the way that I do; The only reason I put effort into the front view is because this is going to be a character sheet and I need the front view to be fleshed out.

But alternatively; Just sketch out a sillhouette, then fill it in on a higher layer. 

Sorry if someones already done this before im just answering a frequently asked question ;w;

i like necks a lot yeh lets talk about necks!!! u gotta know what’s going on in there to draw necks, here’s a fairly simple run down.

Also a lot (most all) of my anatomy knowledge comes from taking Scott Eaton’s anatomy for artists course.  If you have a chance/money to take it, it’s really great.  

New Animation Software 「EmoFuri」 Helps Animate Illustrations Instantly!


E-mote Free Movie Maker, shortened EmoFuri, is a new Windows software released by M2 that helps artists easily animate photoshop illustrations in a 2D-3D style! EmoFuri uses PSD files of character illustrations to animate them.


EmoFuri is free for download! Try it out here!


As a disclaimer, this is far from a comprehensive list of genders, sexualities, kinks, etc. This generator is to be used as a prompt starting block and I highly encourage exploration of terms and topics that do not appear on these lists. 

Hey everyone, my friend empty-crayon-box made a cool generator for you guys!  Like she said, sexuality’s an immense and individualistic thing so there’s no way for all options to be included in one generator, but this could be a good starting point if you’re having trouble coming up with diverse characters.  Remember, if you get something you’re not familiar with, make sure to do some research before you try writing it, and researching things beyond these lists is a good idea too <3

To play: click and drag each gif, or take a screenshot of the whole thing.

xin you’re a fucking jackass

Anonymous whispered: Kel, how do you get that painterly look in photoshop? I've been using SAI for ages and with that the paint just kinda blends itself in with other others but in photoshop I don't know how to do this?? the paint doesn't blend together at all it just goes straight over it and isn't affected by it even on the same layer I??? also you're so great have a good day


YEAH in photoshop you kinda have to blend manually?? In photoshop CS5 and above (I think), you can actually turn on the ‘color dynamics’ in brush settings and it will create a sort of blending effect, but I DON”T REALLY LIKE IT BC it’s kinda hard to control SO I DOn’t use that

I blend in photoshop like this! (make sure your opacity settings are turned on)

and then I repeat the whole eyedrop and brush over until it looks okay HAHA

and just personally, if the mid color is too dull, which it is a lot because photoshop doesn’t mimic the way color blends in real life, I add an extra color! (Use in moderation though OR YOU MIGHT END UP WITH RAINBOWS)

EDIT BLUE N RED MAKES PURPLE NOT GREEN omg turns head in shame

Hope that helps and I hope you have a rad day too!! I really don’t do anything special SO IM SORRY if this isn’t particularly helpful
