..played with photoshop for a while

Hello again guys!  Here are some tips about brushes- once again, I’m no expert, so explore these points on your own!  Some of these are a little more abstract, while others are to help deal with minor brush annoyances ;)

1.  PHOTOSHOP BRUSHES are based on a “stamp” system, not a brush system like some painting programs. That is why photoshop brushes are great for things like chains and repeated patterns, but you have to fiddle with them a bit to make them look natural.
2.  The first brush setting underneath the brush panel you must become familiar with is “transfer.” this tab plays with the opacity and flow of the brush.  
3.  As stated in previous tutorials, the essential hotkeys for brushwork are:
[/]= brush size larger and smaller
alt= eyedropper tool
Numbers= opacity of brush
Shift+Number= flow of brush
4.  Brush icon not showing up/ behaving correctly?  Usually one of four things: Caps Lock is on, Edit in Quick Mask Mode is on (which can be found on your left main tool panel), the brush blend mode is on a different setting (found next to opacity and flow), or you have something selected (crtl+d will do the trick). 
5.  DON’T knock the photoshop brush sets that come with the program.  Many artists I know use these brushes while tweaking the settings.  Consider utilizing settings such as dual brush and texture to make these ordinary brushes great.
6.  Brushes with large amounts of detailed texture tend to pixelate and not work correctly when scaled down too far. 
7.  Trying to create a natural brush tip? Brush settings>Shape Dynamics> Angle Jitter> Control: Direction. This will make the brush more natural and dependent on how you stroke your pen. 
8. Do you use a signature/watermark a lot? A certain shape or pattern? Make it a brush. 
9. When changing things like opacity and flow in both the brush settings and the layer settings, Photoshop will sort of get “stuck” there, and you will see the number highlighted.  Simply hit enter (don’t bother reaching for the mouse!) and it will go away.
10.  Rotating the canvas will help you with your brushstrokes. Shift+R rotates the canvas in nice equal increments, and is a easy way to set the rotation back to 0.
11. Texture brushes just don’t look right?  Make a selection, zoom out, and make the brush slightly bigger while you paint. Think of them as big sponges, not brushes.

Thanks again guys! I have a lot of tutorial requests from you, and I’ll be working through more soon!

hello! i’ve been asked about how i make my animations many times so i decided to make a quick process/tutorial post. in the pictures above, you can see my whole process for this little animation. (btw this was done on photoshop cc). 

basically, i made my painting; while keeping the butterfly on a separate layer. then went to timeline -> create frame animation (just like when you’re making a regular gif) and created new layers for each frame. then i painted the different phases of the butterfly’s movement. each time, i made sure to keep the butterfly in the same place (you can do that by having the previous layer/frame underneath at a low opacity to check on its position). make sure to play the animation regularly to check on its fluidity. once you have all your frames ready, you can save your gif (export -> save for web). 

i hope this was helpful, it’s the first time that i make a sort of tutorial. if you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

anonymous asked:

Can you give me some advices/tutorials on how to make gifs? I suck at it and hell, I've been trying to gif for two days and I still can't :(

Of course! Let me just say when you start off making gifs it can be very difficult and confusing (I know it was for me). So I’m going to try and give you lots of tips and things that I’ve learned so hopefully you can skip lots of the hard parts I had to learn on my own. Also don’t get discouraged if you feel like your gifs aren’t turning out amazing, you’ve just started and it’s taken me over the course of 3 years to start making ones I’m actually happy with, as always practice gives you experience! Anyways enough of my rambling lets get started.

“Just as Jongin was swallowing down the very first bite of his delicious burger he suddenly noticed a handsome young guy, sitting right next to the bright windows of the store. Jongin didn’t intend to stare - he really didn’t, because, hell, he didn’t want to appear as creepy but he somehow couldn’t take his gaze away. His heartbeat though missed some beats as said boy suddenly turned his head to look right into Jongin’s direction with big, curious eyes, as if he had sensed his deep stare. Jongin nearly dropped his burger out of shook. But before Jongin had any time to panic or hastily move his eyes away, pretending that he didn’t just bluntly stare at pretty boy infront of him, the other presented him a warm, welcoming smile.”

Just remembered a random thought I had while mostly asleep yesterday: Rolo is secretly prince lotor. Dunno why that's the kind of stuff I come up with when mostly asleep, but I felt I had to share with somebody.

(opens up google and looks up Lotor and Rolo images. Plants in Photoshop to compare)

Camp Camp Summer Line by Christine B. (@ah-gavino)

It’s almost time for summer campers! 

This was just a little project I had been working on for a little while, and I wanted to share it! By no way am I a designer or an expert in photoshop, but I had this small idea of redesigning some cute outfits in an RT style! (I have some RWBY, Lets Play, and general RT outfits planned..) Hope you guys enjoy them!

Felipe posted that picture of Valtteri with his cat on the instagram, and now I’m just imagining him browsing the internet for pictures of Valtteri, because he’s missing the time they were teammates and he didn’t have to carry the team all by himself.

Rinoa knows all the best ways to distract Squall! 

I got my new computer and spent ages installing stuff but now it’s ready and it’s so fast! Just restarting it is sort of fun right now as I’ve neved had a SSD before:p Quick little doodle to test photoshop(you guessed it, it’s suuuuuper fast). I can also do a important things like playing Hearthstone while drawing and also watch stuff all at once. This is a whole new world for me:p

While I was making that other post last night, I noticed something interesting in this episode: 2x9 Queen of Hearts.

At the very beginning of it, we see this:

A hooded figure. Reminds you of someone? Maybe the one in Emma’s vision?

Guess who is under it in the Season 2 episode?

When I saw this, and went to look for the vision, I also noticed that the smoke that makes disappear the sword is this color:

(I didn’t change it on photoshop) which resembles more H00k’s as the dark one:

Than Gideon’s as seen in the latest episode:

(Again, I didn’t change the coloring.)

Before you say “but Emma sees H00k in the vision”, it is not the first time someone is disguised as someone else, right? Everyone has been Cora’d at this point.
Plus, there has been a lot of focus on who is and who isn’t there while the vision plays out?
Why focus so much on that to just say that Regina would not be the hooded figure, and she would not hurt Emma?

And technically… we have been told that Gideon is the one under the hood, but we never actually saw a face in any of the visions so far?!?

1909 Femina Magazine Cover  featuring Empress Alexandra of Russia and her Children

Interesting example of vintage “photoshopping”. The editors used two various photographs - one of Empress Alexandra and one family photo and composed parts of it to created a new image. As a finishing touch Alexei was give a hoop to play with, while Anastasia seemingly floats in the air, and Alexandra is apparently carrying a part of random railing around. :)

Actor AU Masterlist

Say You Love Me -  Yuuri Katsuki is an upcoming actor, cast in the role of Christine Daaé, even though he’s a guy. He thinks that this won’t be too hard, aside from those killer high notes. But, oh, was he wrong. He didn’t think that his castmates would be so… interesting. Especially the actor portraying Raoul, Viktor Nikiforov. Yuuri finds himself head over heels for Viktor. But castmate relationships are unprofessional. Right?

it’s like you’re photoshopped - Not-So-Local Ex-Dancer Upsets Coworkers by Failing to Communicate with Celebrity Castmate, details at eleven.//Yuuri just wants to retire already.

Scripted - Viktor Nikiforov is a wildly successful theater-turned-Hollywood actor who fears he’s plateaued.Yuuri Katsuki, on the other hand, is an up-and-coming thespian who struggles with jumpstarting his career. All the while dealing with his anxiety. Clearly, going to the same school as his Russian idol didn’t help much.Both out of ideas, they decide to pursue graduate studies in their alma mater. They work on a play together and, along the way, maybe even pursue something more with each other.

& Action!!! -  Viktor Nikiforov five tine Oscar winning actor from Russia and now employed on the biggest acting company in Asia and collaborates with its newest and ‘Rising Asian Action Star’ from Hasetsu together.

Oops, baby I love you -  Viktor Nikiforov won another Oscars this 2016 and Yuri’s a budding fashion designer. As much as they do love each other, their work and the almost non-existent time they have for each other led for them to break up. Everything was okay, or so they thought until Phichit’s birthday came up and then suddenly, their hearts yearn for each other once more, but complications rear its ugly head towards their get-together again.

Opposites Attract - Katsuki Yuuri is a ill adjusted pop singer with a lot anxiety, hiding from the world of music. He’s probably not doing a good job, because when he wakes up with a hangover, he found himself starring in a viral video, pole dancing and singing Paula Abdul’s part of Opposites Attract.Oh, and he gets an offer from his favourite actor, Victor Nikiforov to be the romantic lead of his last movie, some musical about 2 people falling in love.

Endless Summer Hydrangea - Victor is a well-known actor while Yuri is an established director.
They chanced upon one another once before meeting on set of the filming of a tragic love story.Rumors say that it came from the director’s personal experience. That it was his way of documenting his life and presenting his story to the world. A story on his love; his first love, his one and only love. One that didn’t include Victor.Victor who has fallen head over heels with Yuri decides to make the latter fall for him. Will he succeed in melting the frozen heart or will his love story too end up as tragic as the one he is filming?

Lights, Camera, Action -  Or Yuri On Ice is a show like usual, but Yuuri, Victor, and Yurio are all actors, and they’re not quite like their characters in the show

Live, Laugh, Love -  Yuuri Katsuki, a 23-year-old Japanese actor, was a veteran top star. He has been in various popular movies as both main and supporting actors, creating a massive fan base. Nonetheless, he never lost his composure and always worked hard to give back the love he received every day. One fateful day, he got a script; a story about a young man who lost faith within himself but found his way back to the world’s stage with the love of his coach. Something clicked within Yuuri and even though his manager told him that the project might ruin his reputation, he insisted. What could possibly go wrong? And then, he met the Viktor Nikiforov.

soft hearts, electric souls - “One day, I want to see your name on the Walk of Fame.”Yuuri Katsuki is a rising star, landing a starring role in a Hollywood film for the first time. Turns out he’s going to be starring alongside his long-time idol and the biggest star in Hollywood, Viktor Nikiforov.It begins to get difficult to differentiate their characters feelings from their own.

Putting On A Show - Viktor Nikiforov is a famous Russian actor, and it seems that he has all a man could want.Which is why no-one expects him to pack up and move to Detroit.However, this surprise move lands him very near the young IT man Yuuri Katsuki, who wants to find more from life than working his 8-5 and coming home to his roommate slaving away for college.An amateur theater group seems to grant everyone’s wishes.

Santa, Yuri -  Yuri is finally on the set of a huge film with his favourite actor, Viktor Nikiforov. Unfortunately, he’s rather nervous. So, with Christmas coming up, Phichit decides Yuri needs his help, despite Yuri’s protests.

Once Upon A Dream -  In which Victor Nikiforov is your above average salaryman and Yuuri Katsuki just made his leading male role debut as an Alternate actor for Prince Philip in the play ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Victor knows he’s fucked.

Ptichye Moloko -  Viktor is a two time Academy Award winner actor who, while shooting a movie in Japan accidentally found a small cake shop Agape & Eros and instantly fell in love with the stunning desserts on display. He, however, did not expect to fall in love with the gorgeous but shy man who ran the shop.

i wanna lock in your love - Viktor has been planning this for months and somehow, in the span of about 5 minutes, it all goes to shit.Or: In which Viktor Nikiforov, award winning singer-songwriter, actor, certified musical genius, and occasional model, tries and fails to propose to his boyfriend (but it all works out in the end anyways).

Cherry Blossoms - “What would you like today?” A gentle, smooth voice interrupted his reading. Viktor closed his phone and opened his mouth to order as he looked up.

The words died in his throat and he felt like he was just punched in the gut when all the air in his lungs suddenly deserted him.

There was a goddamn angel in front of him.
