and I have on my application 'photoshop'

An adorable little anon asked for a tutorial on how I do my typography graphics, so here goes. Sorry if my explaining is bad, I’ve never done this before. I know there are tutorials floating around for these things sorry to add another to the mix.

An example of the finished product is here. I used a variety of the techniques I’ll explain here, but if you have any specific questions about one particular thing, feel free to message me privately.

Shoutout to shutupstrax for teaching me how to do this in the first place!

Painting tutorial go! I tried to make them as viewable as possible using the weird slide type thing that tumblr does, but if you need the full view, open each image in a new tab and make sure the number at the end is 1280 rather than 500.
You can also check out the full size here, all in one image!
The instruction is very basic because it only covers the photoshop + brush techniques I use, and not the accumulated learning I’ve gained over the years. That can only come through practice and repetition, unfortunately! But as long as you keep trying, you slowly develop your skills.

Obviously the tools and things are applicable only to Photoshop users.

As for referencing images… I have a references folder with over 3000 files inside it. It’s HUGE. Save everything so you know how things work, what things look like, and draw from real life as much as you possibly can, because it really boosts your understanding especially when you can interact with or change your angle when viewing the reference.

Some more useful things:
Colour theory by PK
More colour theory
Painting fabric
Basic lighting

Also added bonus: My favourite three brush packs!
Tones set 1
Tones set 2
Illustration Brushes

Impure Photography by Brendon Seidler

Seidler on his work:

[Impure Photography] focuses on color film photographs I took in areas where known chemical pollutants had been found. Using a special process these chemicals were later introduced to the film and their colorful effects are the result. None of these images were photoshopped, these are all the result of chemicals on film. The images are abstract and surreal and feature a variety of colors and application techniques.

The purpose of the [project] is to show off my work while making people think twice about some of the chemicals we are introducing into the environment. If these are the effects the chemicals have on film what are the effects it will have on nature?


do you like animated and children’s films/shows? do you have a love for female characters? do you want to meet new people that enjoy the things you do? then this might be the network for you!

Hello, everyone! Today, I’m going to talk about something a little more abstract than my usual content. I’m going to be talking about the rule of thirds, a simple theory about composition that is extremely valuable when making graphics and icons.

You don’t really need to have any particular software to follow this tutorial–it’s theory, so it’s generally applicable to all! (There are a few Photoshop-specific bits at the end, however.)

Let’s begin!

(Bonus scrunchy: This one is a bit difficult since it’s made of a more thicker fabric. I might be willing to include this if you buy more than 4 scrunchies in one order.

Please message me if you are interested! I am also planning on making bunny scrunchies for people with short hair! That’s pretty much in the makings for sure since a lot of you have asked and I think I may have gotten the right shape and the right application of some sorts for it!

Sometimes I consider streaming, but then I remember how distracted I get sometimes. It would probably be a very strange stream. Oh well, my little laptop probably wouldn’t handle it very well anyhow, especially since these Photoshop files are getting huge now.

Happy belated holidays everyone! c:

I am NOT accepting anymore hoodie applications for the time being. Only doing the ones that were in by the due date. I will eventually have another giveaway, so keep watch for that! uwu


Hey tumblr photoshoppers! I just downloaded photoshop because they are having a Black Friday deal. I picked the option where I get every single application. I don’t want to download all and fill up the storage on my computer. Does someone mind telling me what these are?

anonymous asked:

If I wanted to go about making gifsets for some of my favorite movies, do you have any advice? I have no clue how to start or what programs I'll need. And do I need to have the DVD of the movie or if it's on Netflix can I use that? Thanks in advance!

Making gifsets is something I’m still working on improving myself, but hopefully this will help.

Programs: I personally use a mixture of the newest Photoshop Creative Cloud application and my old ass Photoshop Elements 8 to make my gifs. Mostly PCC is for grabbing the frames I want and mass editing them, and then I’ll use PE8 to Save to Web to make the gifs.

I know a few people use Adobe After Effects as well, but…I have no idea how that works, but it makes real pretty gifs. For the most part, Adobe Programs seem to be the way to go.

Getting Video/Frames: I usually download the movies in some way. I’m not sure how it would work with Netflix, or if you even can use Netflix, since I don’t…have Netflix lol. Usually I’ll rip a copy of the movie from a DVD I have to use, or I’ll…um…obtain the movie in another mp4 manner :’D 

Anime is generally easier to download the videos since there’s so many anime streaming/download sites, but getting movies depends. Like, it took me five tries to find a good file of the Lizzie McGuire movie. For Kingsman, I had my DVD.

Other References: I can’t find my tutorials that I bookmarked! But, there are a few people I know off the top of my head who make some pretty snazzy gifs that may be a little better to ask for help. @hartwinorlose @oggalahad @a-gent-galahad

Good luck lovely!
