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)
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.

“Red Kimono, Green Sash, Yellow Hairpin I put in my hair. I’ve become the type of Girl you like. How is it? Aren’t I beautiful?” - Tailor Shop on Enbizaka
(click for better quality)
Honestly this was just an excuse to draw Ayano/Yan-Chan in a kimono. So, “tailor shop on enbizaka” is one of the many yandere vocaloid songs and I love how beautiful it sounds, so it kinda inspired this. I put red spider lilies on Ayano’s kimono because those are part of the game, as well as cherry blossoms on her sash and hairpins. Also the reason the others are shorter than Ayano is because they’re suppose to be behind her.
The reason I chose Osana and Amai to represent the other women in the song is because they most closely match the color schemes of those woman, red and green. I know Osana is more orange but only two other characters in the game have a red color scheme and neither show interest in Taro. Same with Amai, she’s more of a minty green, but any other green color character wouldn’t fit. I chose Hanako for the hairpin girl because that girl is said to be young, and Hanako is currently the youngest character in the game, being two years younger than Taro I believe.
She’d mistaken it for a rust blood at first, but a second glance confirmed what her keen eyes had seen. Kanaya looked around, making sure that none of the other jades were nearby, then bent to pick up the little wriggler. It protested with squeaks and hisses; she was not his lusus, but she didn’t think he would have one. He was red. Bright red. Incredible.
She drew the youth to her chest quickly, letting the glow of her skin die, exchanged for the cloak of darkness. Her fellows would do anything to cull such a mutant. Fight over the poor thing, maybe. That was no life. Being culled? No, that was no life either. Taken care of like a helpless cheese critter. And not all were truly kind in their intentions, using those under their care as means to a higher position, neglected more than they were cared for.
The wriggler had stopped protesting, relaxing into her midblood warmth. Their temperature wasn’t too different, it seemed. Holding him for extended periods would not be an issue. She caressed the grub’s face, pushing already thick black hair out of his face.
“Karkat,” she whispered. “I will call you Karkat and you will live with me, child. Now, let’s find you something to eat.”
For those who don’t know about the Mii verse trick, there’s a tutorial [ here ] by mischacrossing, and if you have a mac, you can have an even better quality.
I don’t use Mac, so this is what I usually do. (click on the pics to see the captions!)
I usually stop after the “reduce noise” step, the others are optional. Also, you don’t need to do everything, those are all the tricks that I commonly use when editing screenshots, you can use only the ones you need/want for each screenshot
Actions can be a good thing to use too, just search for “photoshop actions” on google or deviantart to download some/learn how to use!
To create a new layer with the pic (as seen in steps 5 and 6) create a new layer (ctrl+shift+N) and use ctrl+shift+alt+E
