GIF Tutorial by risetoosoon

An anon asked me to make a tutorial on how to make gifs. This tutorial is pretty lengthy, and includes What Websites You Can Use To Download Videos (from Youtube), How To Make Gifs and How To Create a Text Layer (Used for a Caption). I am using Photoshop CS6 on a mac for this tutorial. Here we go!

Future Self, try not to forget that step one of painting is “scribbles and paint blobs,” and is definitely not “feel bad about all your shortcomings as an artist and a person.”

Scribbles and paint blobs. Scribbles and paint blobs. Scribbles. Paint blobs. Thinking that you can’t dra - NO. SCRIBBLES. PAINT BLOBS.

Hello! You are one of the most amazing of artists I've ever seen AND MORMOR IS MY FAVOURITE SHIP EVER I LOVE YOU AND YOUR ART SO MUCH Ahem, excuse me. I wanted to ask, HOW DO YOU DRAW A CHARACTER TWICE AND KEEP THEM LOOKING THE SAME?!? It never works for me D: If you could help out, I would appreciate it so much. Thank you for reading this anyway, just know that I love your art to the ends of the internet <3

Thank you.

Haha. Hahahaha. hahahhahahhaha I am not consistent at all….

I mean, I try, but certain key features always seem to change when I draw. I’m trying to overcome that, but I am hardly worthy to give pointers on consistency. Most of the similarities come from my colouring job, since the same characters always use the same palette. Maybe you should try asking Razz (octofied), because her consistency is something to worship! And she does it all in black and white, too.

Gahh. Okay here I go.

Because it’s still happening, i’m making this post


not only is it ugly anyway, but it lightens skintone, and that’s obviously a problem. that psd is only made for pale people and its meant to only compliment pale people - do not use it on brown/black! this is problem not only found in the 5h fandom, but all around tumblr as well. you need to understand that whitewashing poc is wrong and if you honestly don’t know why please google it.

don’t be afraid of vibrance and high saturation, it doesnt matter if it was a 2011 trend or w/e, it looks better than those milky psds. use more yellows and reds in your curves - brighten your colors!

i’ve made two things to help people edit less like this and here are the links:

if you want another psd or tutorial you can request me, i’ll do it


I made a tutorial for all of you on how to do these gemstone/rupee nails! The concept was originally inspired by a wood block painting tutorial done by Fabric Paper Glue, but I just loved the illusion and look of it so much that I wanted to adapt it to nail art!

This tutorial requires only three colors: Your basic color, black, and white. You will be mixing these colors to create the 6 shades needed to complete the look. In the top right corner, you can see that I’ve illustrated a sort of “paint by number”. The number 3 shade is the color right out of the bottle. The number 1 shade has the most white mixed in (I used about 3 globs of white polish), and your number 6 shade has the most black (I used two small globs of black polish). Be careful when you first mix in your black polish - black can be very overpowering and will make the color very dark very fast! Remember: you can always add more as needed!

Step 1: paint your entire nail with your #3 shade. Allow polish to dry completely (that is super important! if you don’t allow it to be completely dried, you will get yucky marks from the tape later on)
Step 2: take two pieces of striping tape and line two parallel areas running longways on either side of your nail. These two areas should be more narrow than the center area.
Step 3: fill in the left area with your #1 shade (lightest), and the right area with your #6 shade (darkest). It’s okay if its a little messy - that’s why you have the tape! Allow polish to dry completely before pealing up the tape.
Step 4: take two more pieces of striping tape and tape off two more parallel areas, this time running shortways.
Step 5: fill in both areas with your #4 shade (just slightly darker than the base). Try not to paint over the areas you created in Step 3. If it’s a little messy, that’s okay, but I would recommend trying not to paint to the outside edges of the nail. This will help later when you are painting your corners. Again, wait for the polish to dry completely before removing the tape.
Step 6: Taking your #2 shade (just slightly lighter than your base), create a trapezoid shape at the top and bottom corner on the left side. This part can get a little tricky to figure out the angle that your lines should go. It helps to remember that each shape you are creating on the nail will be a trapezoid (i.e. bigger on the outside edge and smaller on the inside edge).
Step 7: repeat Step 6 using your #5 shade on the right side of the nail. 

Finish off with topcoat and your gems are ready!

Let me know if you have any questions about these nails! I can’t wait to see your nails when you try them!
