I cleaned the color cover for chapter 531! ^^ First time cleaning something, bless those who do it on a regular basis, because it’s a painstaking process 😅 Feel free to use however you like ❤ (you may have to click for better quality)
This is one of the shot I animated on our short film, and those are the
side characters in the background that you don’t see a lot! I had a lot
of fun working on this shot, even though I’m not confident at all in animation. I
learned a lot, thanks to my team mates and the great professionals who came to help us out. :>
i've been wanting to gif for a very long time but i find it so frustrating bc i don't know how to download the video or where i can download what things i need to download it and so forth plus i have a mac so it limits me from certain apps and stuff. can you please help me out?
of course darling!! crap i still haven’t done that giffing tutorial. okay i’ll work on that later today but until then, i’ll answer this first :) i guess this is like the stage before giffing? this is a tad long but oh well.
pre-giffing tutorial + tips
first: i download most of my movies from the pirate bay, but they’re torrents. i use utorrent. i also use twitter sites like lovelylogoless. for some animated films, i use kisscartoon but there is no distinct download link. make an account, search + click on the film you want to download and scroll to the bottom:
right click on 1920x1080.mp4 and right click ‘save link as…’ and it’ll start downloading. to see quality difference, i torrented the little mermaid and downloaded it from kissanime. in all honesty, the torrent was better quality but this is a good alternative for those who don’t necessarily like torrenting.
youtube is also great, but you gotta make sure the quality is 1080p. 720p is okay but sometimes 1080p trailers still turn out to look a bit grainy (that’s normal for downloading from youtube). to do this, get the link of what you want to download (from youtube) and i use clipconverter.cc. on this site, you can select the quality (always choose 1080p or higher, if there is an option for higher). some automatic youtube to mp4 sites record the video in bad quality.
second: i have a mac too! it’s not that frustrating as expected tbh. here you can find some photoshop downloads for mac. i personally use cs5 and MPEG streamclip for screencapping. these are my screencapping settings:
if you don’t know how to screencap with streamclip, see this tutorial. the only downside about using streamclip (rather than windows’ KMPlayer, which isn’t on mac yet) is that it can only screencap from mp4 films. if you download a film in mkv (or a different format), i use handbrake to convert to mp4. these are my settings:
i’ve used this to convert all my mkv film files to mp4 and it’s great. quality remains the same, which is the most important thing. usually whatever the duration of the film is (e.g. 2 hours) is how long it’ll take to convert. i fill up my queue (see this image if you don’t know what i mean) and start converting before i go to bed, so i get about 3-4 conversions then rather than lagging my laptop and converting them during the day (while i’m doing other stuff).
that’s about it!! as mentioned above, i’ll do a proper giffing tutorial later today but i hope this helps xx
Obzor 1P63 Tactical Combat Scope w/ Solar Dual White/Green Multipurpose Reticle, AK/AKM Mount. This is the newest collimator made for the Kalashnikov. Representing a new generation of Russian optics production, it is already being used by elite units in Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD): police, Spetznaz Special Forces, OMON, etc. Such units aren’t going to use anything but the best. The Kashtan and the Obzor are use leading edge technologies developed by the NPZ factory. The scope reticle changes its shape in response to light conditions so you literally have three different reticles for daylight, twilight and night conditions. It also has a lever activated tinted lens filter that gives great reticle clarity in bright light conditions, it is a very cool feature and makes this collimator one of our favorites. It not only fills the role of the traditional CQB short range/fast acquisition sight, but also has unique features designed specifically for longer range combat shooting. The reticle and scope ability is geared for a single shot kill on an AK-74N at 400-700 meters. It’s fully coated prismatic lens system provides a remarkable, high contrast, wide angle field of view allowing for fast acquisition of moving and spaced targets. The advanced battery-free, illuminated white&green reticle allows the Obzor be used in ANY conditions. You have an unlimited field of view and maximum ability to register incoming targets. The precision optic system combined with the striking field of view produced by the high quality lens system provides far superior accuracy at distances exceeding those capable with iron sights. The scope has very accurate windage and elevation adjustments in small increments (every turret’ click moves POI by 3 cm at 100 m). The special protective lens coatings protect the scope from scratching and fouling in the extreme battlefield conditions where it was designed to operate. A light-dividing mechanical and coating system produces exceptional dual visualization of the target and reticle at the same time so you see both in high resolution for better targeting.

These are only about half of my LGBT+ sims, but these are my favouites representing their gender, sexual orientation, or romantic orientation. I feel a little uneasy about putting these shirts up for public download again, so if you want them, you’ll have to message me. I always offer private downloads of my content to those that do.

Part of Your World | Jeronica [Mermaid + Pirate AU]
“You saved me,” said the pirate in disbelief, “but how can that be?”
“I’ve heard the legends, and read the tales,” he spoke aloud to himself, walking cautiously forward, “the sea maidens..”
“Are you not the vengeful spirits of those poor wenches drowned at sea? Borne of bitterness and hatred? Lying in wait for any drifting seafarer, so that you might drag him to his watery grave?”
This was the truth Jughead had always known, and yet, as his words came to a close..he knew it was false.
“No,” he said softly, “I think not.”
With a shake of his head he sank to his knees at the shore’s edge, squinting into the fog in the hopes that he might obtain a clearer view of the sea maiden and her beauty.
In all this time the maiden said not a word, much to the young pirate’s dismay. She merely stared silently up at him, a gentleness in her enchanting gaze.
How he longed to hear her speak. The thought of what it might sound like danced in his imagination, torturing him.
It was then that he recalled something he’d heard as a boy. It was said that alongside their thirst for blood, sea maidens were, at heart, conceited creatures. There were rumors that a man might gain favor with a maiden were he to appeal to her vanity. Or, so went the rumor.
Desperate, Jughead decided to try. Softening his features, he spoke gently and earnestly to the sea maiden.
“Words,” he started, “so long I thought them my faithful friend, and ally.”
“But I am a fool. For they have betrayed you, and so, they have betrayed me.”
At this, the sea maiden gave hint of a smile, moving an inch closer to where he kneeled upon the shore. It was a game, he knew. And a dangerous one at that. One false word could mean certain death if the rest of the rumor was to be believed. But dangerous so a game it was, it was a game he was all too willing to play.
Heartened by the maiden’s response, he carried on, “Yes, a fool.”
“Demons of the deep, so they called you, and so I wrongly believed.”
“But here, now,” said the pirate, leaning further beyond the shore, “my eyes see not a demon,”
“only an angel..”
The maiden moved closer then, the pirate’s heart skipping in his chest as she did so.
Now only a breath apart, the boy might’ve gasped at her beauty, were he able to draw breath at all. The maiden studied him silently a moment, her eyes raking over every inch of his face before finally, she smiled.
