h*p

Hey all you beautiful, strange people. This is a cosplay RP blog. I can listen if you want me to, but please please please seek trained help if you’re having thoughts of suicide or harming yourself in any way. There is no reason for you to suffer through that and, realistically, posting anon in my inbox isn’t getting you the support that you need.

No matter what your situation is, whether you’re at the top of the world or at the bottom of the barrel, your feelings are yours and they are valid. Seek help, please. Make a call, send a message. You have options.

omg I was just thinking I would like to hear Korra and Asami's exact words of confession when they make it "official" that they're girlfriends and I started internal screaming as I thought about Janet and Seychelle voicing what they think they would say to each other and now I'm!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like that's something they would do

things janet and seychelle should do when seychelle comes on janet’s podcast #2141

they could improv korrasami scenes…they could read korrasami fanfic…

the options are endless…

watercolor tips and tricks

some tips and tricks that have seriously helped me in excelling at watercolour

1. PAPER WEIGHT. for the love of god do not use any paper under 110-120 lbs to paint with watercolour, a very VERY wet medium that will soak clean through the paper if it’s not thick enough (most paper pads sold at craft stores have the weight listed on them. printer paper is around 20 lbs, sketch pads will be about 60 lbs, IDEAL watercolour paper 140 lbs+). i use only 140 lb paper for my serious watercolour works. canson and strathmore are my favourite brands

2. there’s no need to have very expensive watercolour paints, but it is important to use something better than crayola. my dad gave me a 24-pan windsor&newton watercolour set when i was 8 and these are still the paints i use today (i was a very careful child, but i never even had to replace my paint pans after almost 10 years either, so this brand, while super expensive, lasts and earns my gold star.) some other cheaper options are: x and x

3. if you’re going to be using watercolours, prepare to use WATER. so many people forget this, but it’s so important to realise this media is meant to look translucent, so you should see the paper through the paint. if you can’t see it, then you’re using the paints as if they’re gouache or acrylics, so try using more water and work with lighter colours.

OKAY NOW FOR THE ACTUAL TRICKS

4. SALT

quite overused in watercolour but it’s so freaking cool it can be pardoned. *remember for all of these effects, you have to use lots of water with the paint for it to work!

5. ALCOHOL/VODKA/HAND SANITIZER IF YOU’RE LAZY LIKE ME

image

you have to be very careful here because the second image can turn into the first if you use too much alcohol and it soaks through the water and paint gets in the spot, so be sure to experiment plenty before using this!!

but yeah you can use whatever clear alcohol you can find and it does p much the same thing

6. LIGHT SKIN TONES

okay while the darker skin tones are more easily achievable with browns and additional yellows/blues/reds to bring out the undertone, light skintones are hard as hell to make with watercolour because it’s hard to even think of what to mix. think no more!

image

YELLOW OCHRE + ANY PURPLE = perfect skintone you can play around with. adding more of yellow or purple will give you either cool or warm skin tones you can build up on and layer until they’re the proper value. remember to use purple/cool shadows with skin in compositions with normal lighting!

7. PAYNE’S GREY

and finally to repeat my previous post, use PAYNE’S GREY instead of black for a richer, darker colour in your painting. don’t use black unless your entire composition has warm colours, but even then, try to use a very dark brown instead of black.

image

8. WHITE

finally, it’s very important to mention this: never use the white watercolour they sometimes give you. EVER. EVER. dilute your paint with water instead to get a lighter value, or else you’re not using watercolour to its full extent (which is something you might struggle with if you’re used to using acrylics or oil)

that’s all i can think of at the top of my head, but if you have any questions or need further brand recommendations etc, feel free to message me!

It's Abby again

Hey. I know it’s not my place to talk, but I wanted to do something for Jay so he can feel loved when he wakes up. Knowing him, he’ll still be passed out for an hour or two, so… I could use some help. I was thinking maybe if we could all make the tag ’ #weloveyoujay’ trend (on photos or love posts or anything), maybe then when he wakes up he’ll be convinced to stay.

I know other people are having a hard time, too. I don’t know, I just… I want him to truly see how many people love him when he wakes up.

anonymous asked:

What's the deal with the supernatural fans trying to off theirselves? I've never watched the show so I ain't really dedicated to it. But why are doing that? And is there any way I can help?

There is a spree of anon hate targeting the Supernatural fandom telling them to kill themselves. We are extending our help to those from that fandom or know anyone from there or is affected this all of this. I am a member of the Supernatural family and knowing that this is happening saddens me very much. I do not like anon hate in any form and when it is attack my family, it makes me extremely angry. I really hope that we can find ways to find these anons and stop them from doing harm to other people. 

This is a list of people who are in desperate need of some love. You can help by sending them kind messages reminding them that love always win. We are stronger than hate! 

this list contains names of people who need help, are doing better, are hospitalized, or have passed away

here is a petition for prosecuting the anons

Please be careful upon viewing these pages! I hope everyone stays safe! You’re not alone.

Tumbr Unite Against Hate

I’m sure most of you have heard about what’s happening in the supernatural fandom. Someone is sending hateful anon messages to people in the supernatural fandom who have a history of depression and/or self harm. I don’t know the exact situation, but I do know that people have been hospitalized. It’s BAD. We need to show this anon and everyone who sends hateful anonymous messages that we won’t stand for it. Track the tag #affectedbyhate and try to help out wherever you can. If you see a blog getting hate, send them a positive message to let them know they aren’t alone. Do whatever you can to help these people! It doesn’t matter what fandom you’re in or if you aren’t in one at all. People’s lives are at stake here! If you know of any blogs getting hate, spread the word and we will help. Please, PLEASE don’t let people die because of some idiot on the internet. I know this text post doesn’t accomplish much, but if just one person sees this and helps someone it will be enough. I don’t have many followers but can you help me get the word out please? Tag this with as many fandoms as you can!

it would be amazing if i could reach my new years goal? i only need 27 more followers which is insane! 

if anyone could help i’d appreciate it sooo much! :)
