Lance being all smiley while telling Keith he’s gonna miss him because he won’t be able to make fun of him anymore, is such an improvement from him actually making fun of him to be mean and not caring about his feelings at all, and I love it.
girl chris is so fucking underrated she’s literally the only one that has consistently been a good friend to sana like if it wasn’t for her NONE of the girl squad would have ever approached her the girl squad wouldn’t event exist if chris hadn’t invited sana who then made noora join. When the other girls stay silent because sana is being “intimidating” she’s always been the one to break it with something like “wow, you’re so smart” “you’re very well spoken” because she’s the only one in their friend group that doesn’t see her as some sort of mom figure. In the s2 cabin trip, she was the one that played along with sana to teach eva, vilde and noora a lesson on their ignorance of islam. BRO when vilde got thrown off Pepsi max in s1 she literally LEFT WITH HER so she wouldn’t be alone!!!!!! WHAT KINDA FRIEND GOALS!!!!! today she was the one that asked sana and noora what they did over the weekend and if they would be at SYNG on Friday. That interest and genuine invitation did not come from anyone but her. Yes she’s a silly character but it baffles me how almost nobody acknowledges that that she’s the only one that’s never said or done anything insensitive related to Islam, she’s always been the most concerned and honestly the best friend in the girl squad and y'all continue to DISRESPECT HER and I quite frankly, am quite tired of it. #chrisanarise
OK no I’m sorry, but you do not “That’s an order!” him!
Like, ok I understand where Shiro might be coming from (Mental issues, brainwashed somehow, I dunno, I know Shiro is not fine) But how dare?? How dare?? Specially when Keith is making really good points! He like just broke Keith’s heart.
Because what does it tells Keith??
That all Shiro is telling him about what a great leader Keith can be is bullshit, that Shiro doesn’t really trust him, and that Shiro doesn’t see them as equals. That he still sees him as a trouble making cadet or something.
Shiro keeps telling Keith how he believes in him and yet he doesn’t let him lead, and this has been two episodes for us, but seems like it’s been months for them.
I bet Keith started to train with the BOM just cuz of Shiro’s attitude.
That’s why he looks so sad after they all hug…
He thought he found people who accept him and appreciate him and believe in him, but seems like he was wrong. So he leaves before they can really reject him.
Shiro just kinda pushed Keith out of the team because he couldn’t handle the fact he wasn’t leader and Pilot of the black lion anymore. (And I understand why Shiro might act like that, but still..)
And Keith is such a precious boy, he still only thinks of Shiro’s well being the entire time..
Like none of this translates to him as “Shiro is being an asshole” he thinks it’s all his own fault, that something is wrong with him.
Hinata: Kageyama! They didn’t notice! Tsukki: I’m amazed you two idiots could come up with a system like that. Hinata: Hey! We’re not the ones who thought of it! Tsukki: Of course. And who thought of it for you? Hinata: Sugawara-san!
Oh my stars your art is amazing!!! Do you think maybe you can make a shading tutorial sheet? owo
Hey there Anon! Sure thing! I’ll do my best to explain the process of how I usually do things in regards to coloring and shading. I’m not the greatest at Explaining, so I’ll do my best to keep things as crystal clear as possible!
Step 1: Lineart I’ll start with Lineart purely because this step is important to the coloring process in one regard, and that is making sure the entire line layer is closed without any holes. Even the smallest little gap will make the selection process hard later, and we don’t want that. So the cleaner lineart you have, the better. I’m going to go ahead and use my Monster Hunter Generations Huntress for this.
Step 2: Selection Either in Photoshop or SAI or whatever you use, click outside your character and any other negative space surrounding them. This means…basically anything that’s not your character. Then go to Selection > Inverse and invert the selection. You should have something similar to what I have below. This makes it so much easier to add colors without having to worry about all the little nooks and crannies that could mess the cleanliness of the drawing up real bad.
Step 3: Flat Base Create a new layer beneath your line layer with the selection still active. This will be our color layer. Remove the visibility of the line layer, and fill the remaining “Silhouette” with a dark base color. This makes those nasty corners look a bit cleaner, as sometimes if there is a lighter color your computer will want to make them stand out pixelated. Again, this is just for cleanliness beneath the line layer. Turn your line layer back on, as they will now act as barriers for the fill bucket tool. Make sure the entire silhouette is filled, and that no lines were accidentally selected! You want a see a completely filled and flat color if you turn the line layer off.
Step 4: Flat Colors At this point you can lock the transparency of your Color Layer, and go ham. Either with the pen or a fill bucket, figure out how you want to color your character and add in the flat colors. Notice I’m on the same layer as the Base that we made. This is so those lines still play nicely with one another. Clean up where necessary.
Step 5: Analogous Color Gradient Well, we don’t really want our character to be too flat, do we? This is where the color wheel becomes your best friend. Select similar colors with the Magic Wand (like I’ve done her skin tone here) and using the color wheel, choose an analogous (that means “close by” in color wheel terms) color to add a bit of depth to the color. For skin, I usually go with a red or a bronze, sometimes purple. Use the airbrush for this. Then, deselect and select another color to gradient, until all the colors have some degree of new color to them.
See? Now things look interesting! We added some blue to the greens, some purples to the reds, some blues to the grays and so on and so forth.
Step 6: Shading Okay, here’s where things get interesting. Time to shade. Make a new layer between the Line Layer and Color Layer, and make sure you make it a clipping group/clipping mask. This is so it won’t go anywhere that you don’t have color. Set it to multiply or linear burn (whichever you think looks best) and bump the opacity down to about 40-50%. Choose a color (or color-value gradient, if you have drastic value changes in your piece that make light and dark values not play well with the single color you picked, and swap between those) that you want the shadows to be; I like deep pinks and purples. AVOID BLACK. I first use the Pen tool to get down “hard” shadows - shadows cast by hard materials, close shadows, and inorganic materials. Once I’ve got those down, I head on over to the softer areas, such as the skin, hair and cloth and alternate between the watercolor and marker tools to give “softer” shadows. There’s no real law to this, you just have to know where shadows fall and how they behave and work with those three tools to get the look you want.
Step 7: “Highlights” - Rim Lighting Okay, these aren’t really “highlights” in the correct sense, but adding sort of “rim lighting” around forms really helps make a picture pop. To do this, make another layer above the shading layer, set it to “screen” and keep the opacity at 100%. Then, get really familiar with your CRTL key because you’re going to be color sourcing a lot. To add a rim light to a form, select the base color of that form, and use the marker to trace along the edges. For example, I picked up the nude from the skin, the silver from the dagger, the gold and maroon from the hair and the tawny brown from the skull to use on those specific objects. Any place you want clean works well, but the edges of forms works best for this technique. Additionally, if you’d like, you can create another layer above the Screen Layer and set it to Linear Dogde, and do my “glowing eyes” technique on anything you want to stand out, such as the metal of the belt, gold objects and of course, eyes.
Step 8: The Overlay Almost done! While your photo can now stand alone as “finished”, there’s one more thing that I enjoy doing, and that’s adding a simple color overlay to bring the whole picture together. This is done by flattening all the layers you have so far (you’ll want to “Merge Down” in order from bottom to top or “Flatten” to avoid the layers going crazy on each other) into one layer. Then, make a layer on top of that one, set it to a clipping mask, and set it to “overlay”. With the Airbrush, choose some colors (I prefer soft pinks, blues and violets) and go along the “edges” of your character with a BIIIIIG brush. This kind of resembles soft ambient lighting or shadows. I just think it makes the photo look nicer.
TA-DA! And Now we’re done!
And there we go! I hope that helped, and I also apologize cause this ask sat in my box for awhile and I never got around to it until now. :P I’d be happy to answer any questions y’all have, but this is the simple basics! Remember to practice practice PRACTICE! -Gael
