For people curious about my settings
1. I use the brush tool for almost everything, even for lineart. Easy for rough sketching.
2. Blending, works better with a texture thrown in.
3. Flat brush gets you a semi painterly look, wonderful for laying down color and whatnot.
4. Overlay abuse, I actually do most of my color blending with them haha
Brushes downloaded from here I believe
Hello and welcome to King La Locke—the Rach and Laura Nuzlocke blog.
Today this page has undergone extreme renovations and stands before you anew, ready for the current twin Heart Gold Nuzlocke adventures of Ronnie Voss and Offiela Azarola. The adventure will span both Johto and Kanto.
For the most part, Rach and La Nuzlocke in a ‘lite’ fashion, and what may return to the page in terms of stories will be adjusted to better suit the tale. Some deaths may be refashioned as members leaving the team, or other sorts of tales. Overall, what is best for the overall arc of the story and narration comes before the Nuzlocke rules. And we have very little interest in writing a pointlessly dark narrative without proper thought and purpose for what goes into it.
You will find pages now for Backstory and Characters. All profiles are not yet complete; however, over the coming weeks and days they will be.
For the most part, this is side, fun project for the pair of us and it will involve both art and writing, allowing us to explore a world we have already begun to layout.
Questions are always welcome.
Here La and I are doing a Nuzlocke run together with story! :D Come follow and watch the adventure unfold!
Hello, my name is Rachel and after two years if having my tablet, I discovered there were two tablet ports.
There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
Some links that may be useful:
- Armour Archive (I strongly suggest to browse its forum, there is no country or period of which armor wouldn’t be discussed)
- Therion Arms (armorer’s page; each accessory is photographed in big resolution and several time so it’s a nice page to use as reference for drawing)
- Revival Clothing (another store, but both with medieval clothing and armors; I suggest to read the articles, they’re often supported with pictures)
- Basic Armouring:A Practical Introduction to Armour Making (pdf)
- Educational Charts (pdf, shows how armors and weapons changed over the years)
- Medieval & Renaissance Material Culture (actual medieval resources, mostly paintings. And my favourite subpage - women in armor)
- Dressing in Steel (youtube; a demonstration how to dress in armor)
- How shall a man be armed? (youtube; another demonstration but with 4 different knights from different periods)
My nights plans went up in flames. The DVD still has the magnetic tag on and I need Dad to open up my tablet because the USB port needs repairing ;;
Tonight I will start my oc meme sketch requests, do PDL art and then commissions- all whilst watching Thor2 and eating pizza.
I also really wanna play Bioshock infinite. /sobs
An awing fuck-ton of big cat references.
And here’s a link to a spectacular image that helps distinguish types of big cats. It’s insanely helpful, and you’d be doing yourself a majour disservice if you don’t use it:
Please note that in the first cheetah GIF, the head has been insolated. When running, the head will bob up and down slightly. Not a lot, but just know how the head attaches to the neck and how that moves when the body is oscillating up and down when they run, like in the second GIF.

A superb fuck-ton of bear references.
If you’re doing animation or something pertaining to bears walking, for the love of mud, watch some clips before you start. The forepaws move a bit differently from other animals. And regardless of how fat and squishy they may appear, they. Run. Fast. They are coordinated and strong. Like I said, watch some clips to get a better idea.

I finally started filling in my notebook to make plans for my comic. I don’t feel artistically comfortable to begin drawing it?
So why not write it as a novel? /loud whining noises. I don’t have the patience to write a novel. I can barely get out of bed in the morning, let alone write 80,000 coherent and lovely words.
So I’m kind of stuck? But it feels really refreshing to get things down on paper. I am enjoying how I’m writing things down going, "well, I’ve done an awful thing and put his wife in the freezer. I’m going to comic book hell :’D" /sobs. at least it’s not his motive?
