For Windows.

My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).

What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.

MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.

This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.

For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!

Now go draw, babies!

THANK YOU DEAR LORD THANK YOU

GOD BLESS U TUMBLR USER  VANOTY 

Alternatively for Windows 7, click on your task bar and go to “Star Task Manager”, then tab over to Services and click on the “Services…” button at the bottom right.

or if you have a bamboo, hit the button to open the bamboo dock, close it, and instant success.

Oh boy I hope I did this right. Since Anon asked, here’s a hasty tutorial on how I do flat colors. This is also how I color pretty much everything in my webcomic. Now you know my secrets!

Edit: WOW this has an excessive number of notes. Also, this method doesn’t work very well on areas of really light colors, like super-bright pastels and white— the shadows wind up really really dark and the gradients have very little effect.

An appeasing fuck-ton of wound references.

[Be aware that, in the top picture, the blood rivulets will be somewhat thicker in width {refer to nosebleed}; I do apologize that there’s no provided reference for blood drip thickness. Wound tutorials are not as plentiful as any of us would want. I’ll keep lookin’, though.]
