and colors to change

anonymous asked:

how do you get that "3D" effect on your art?

OK so you make your lineart

color

color lineart

now duplicate the lineart !

then ‘preserve opacity’ for the duplicates and set it to multiply

then for the duplicates, change the colors to these

now you get this 

then lower the opacity of the duplicate layers somewhere in 20-30%

then move those layers a bit like this

then merge the duplicate layers to the original lineart

voila 

Tutorial: Change the color of Tumblr’s New Audio player

Hi guys, so you may have noticed Tumblr has a brand new audio player and I, personally, am very uncomfortable with the color it has, especially when it just doesn’t match with the theme’s color scheme.

So, this is what your audio player originally looks like:

First, you have to install jQuery to your theme. Add this snippet before the </head> tag:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

Then, all you need to do is add this code before the </head> tag: (remember to change “#c3dfdf” to whatever color you want!)

<script>
$(document).ready(function() {
$('iframe.tumblr_audio_player').load( function() {
$('iframe.tumblr_audio_player').contents().find("head")
.append($("<style type='text/css'> .audio-player{background:#c3dfdf !important} </style>"));
});
});
</script>

and here’s the result:

By the way, if there appears to have a huge gap under your audio player, all you need to do is add a height to your audio player like this:

<div style="height: 85px">{AudioEmbed-500}</div>

Hopefully this could give your blog better audio posts!

some tips (mostly for digital art)

・don’t force yourself to draw things you don’t want to draw. If you do too many of them you’ll end up hating drawing. This is the most important thing
・when doing lineart try not to take breaks. It might mess up the pressure you draw the lines with
・occasionally flip the image you’re drawing. If it looks unbalanced, fix it cause it shouldn’t
・try changing lineart color. Black isn’t the only option
・instead of making your lineart darker and darker to make it visible on darker colors, try using multiply. I didn’t know about it for a very long time and it was painful
・learn a few shortcuts. It might seem unnecessary for some but it does save a lot of time and energy (i do almost everything by using keyboard shortcuts at this point and it’s very helpful)
・try drawing on a canvas larger than you need so that you can adjust and crop at the end
・do not leave works unfinished and start new ones thinking that you’ll come back to it unless you completely gave up on it because you will not come back to it and even if you do come back after a while, your process, tools, skills or style might change to the point where you can’t continue and you’d have to redo everything
・don’t be afraid to try new things. They might turn out surprisingly well and if they don’t you can either throw them away or keep them so you can laugh at it years later.
・take breaks and don’t look at your drawing for around 10 minutes so when you come back at it you can see the mistakes better.

playing around with my coloring styles again, i’ve been through a bout of art block recently so it’s a bit difficult. i decided to use a green/teal color since i rarely use it, so it was a nice change of pace

I am so confused about the ARMY bomb changing colors with the stage lighting. Is that feature only available at the Korean shows and most likely the Japanese shows?

Probably? There’s a main, like master control for it to change colors and everything.

In regards to color pie philosophy, how do you reconcile green's "resistance to change" with advantage cards like Giant Growth, Exploration, or Sylvan Library? I know that green is about growth, but in my mind, growth is a type of change. Is it because the effects all strengthen the game rule mechanics that are already there (e.g. You already get to play lands, but now you get to play more)? Good job on the color pie articles, by the way :)

Green is against artificial change. It is just fine with normal, natural change.
