Hi. I really like to draw and I want to learn how to do fanarts/digital drawings/etc... Can you give me any tips? Did you made any art course/degreed?
Hi there Anon, yes I did graduate with an Art degree! As for digital drawing tips (you may take anything I say with a grain of salt, I’m still learning too haha), I’d say start by getting used to taking advantage of “layers.” With, I think, most digital drawing tools like Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop, Corel Painter, and more, you can draw on individual layers stacked on top of each other therefore making it very easy to do line art on one layer and color on another. This lets you not mess up your lineart/guide while coloring or vise versa. ALSO, because it’s so easy to fix/adjust your drawing on the computer, make sure to experiment with different brushes and textures! What’s nice about digital drawing is that you can easily jump from an oil painting brush to pencil to marker depending on the style you want. But it’s good to always keep practicing with traditional mediums as well. You pretty much translate everything you learn about drawing and painting by hand to a digital software, which imitates traditional tools but adds “quick and efficient” methods to adjust and enhance your drawing. Since you mentioned you like to draw I’m sure you will have no problems transitioning into digital :) just take your time and play around with all the tools and brushes so you can get a better understanding of how the software works (I’m not sure which one you are planning to use?). Good luck! I’m sure you’ll do fine ~ I apologize if this wasn’t extremely helpful ;A; I really can only recommend you to try everything and to always keep doing traditional drawings as well.
Answering all ASKS (in a batch again ahhhh) here!
Hi there guys! @masovince@you-can-be-yourself Reposting anywhere that isn’t Tumblr or DeviantArt is 100% ok with me so long as there are credits (´｡• ᵕ •｡`) ♡ As for proper crediting, I think I would prefer if you included a direct link to my tumblr or deviantart so that there’s a connection to my accounts <3 thanks so much, it’s not a stupid question at all! And thank you guys for asking!
HEH. LONG HAIRED YUURI IS MY NEW THING. hahah thank you Anon <3
;___; Thank you so much! You’re making me blush ahhhahsgd I hope you had a fantastic new years as well! <3
Oh my ~ thank you so much >///< it makes me so happy to hear you like my drawing enough to set it as a wallpaper !
@takaratime Ahhh thank you so much for your kind comment! I’ll keep working hard ( ´ ∀ `)ノ～ ♡
@andifbyyes (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄) Omg you’re too nice! Thank you so much ahhh! I’m so glad you like those pieces and noticed the little details and everything. I think one of the things I appreciated the most about YOI was how human the characters, and especially Yuuri, were. I always aspire to properly translate that into my fanart so it makes my day to read your comment ;__; thank you again <3
@luchile Hey there! Thank you so much <3 and ahhh thank you for your interest in my drawings! Unfortunately I do not have a shop set up. I never really draw fanart with the intention of selling them, but I’ve had quite a few people ask about this now so I may possibly open a print shop/commissions in the future :)) I will let you know!
@vergoftowels Ohhh yeah. That happens. And I guess there’s only so much one can do about reposts. Tumblr still hasn’t gotten back to me about the first one… lol. But thank you for letting me know :) I hope you have a great rest of your week ~
@foxnewsanchor Hi there! Ohhh man I’ve really seriously been wanting to participate in a zine (especially a YOI one) for a long time but I honestly don’t know if I have the time to commit to one. My online courses start in less than a month and I’m not sure how much time I will have to draw new YOI fanart. ｡ﾟ･ (>﹏<) ･ﾟ｡ BUT thank you so much for the offer! I’m sure your zine will go well!
@ichigokeks Nooo omg thank YOU so much ahhh! (ಥ﹏ಥ) It’s really the greatest thing to hear that my drawings give other people joy. I’m so happy you like them, thank you again for your kind words, and I will keep practicing hard! <3 Much love!
@scarilypsycho *stalks you back* Ahhhh your comment makes me so happy! ;___; It is the biggest compliment to hear when your work affects people. Emotional atmosphere is something that I struggle with all the time so reading this gave me such a boost of energy <3 thank you so much!
Thank you to everyone who sent in ASKS! Also for future reference (and I’m so sorry about this) I will NOT be answering any more asks that are not a question, BUT I will respond via private message if you are not anonymous! :) You guys send in the sweetest comments and it makes my day to read them, but it’s just really hard doing screenshots over and over and then manually cutting out asks to do this in batches haha
I hope everyone had a fantastic new years ~ I’m super excited for my online courses to start! Have a few personal projects coming up too. Dabbling in animation lately so I MIGHT… Have something fun for ya’ll in the future depending on how it goes hehe. As for YOI week… Here’s what I’ll probably be doing next week lol.
There are two instances in the game where Flowey can be killed – after being defeated as Photoshop Flowey and at the end of the genocide route. In the neutral route, Flowey tells Frisk to kill him. On the other hand, he begs for his life in the genocide route. In these two circumstances, Flowey behaves very differently when it comes to death. Why?
Neutral Route – Frisk
Flowey has different feelings towards Frisk and Chara. In the neutral route, Flowey dares Frisk to kill him to prove a point to himself and Frisk that the world really is kill or be killed.
Flowey is also confident that Frisk will reset/reload in order to achieve “a happy ending”, thus bringing him back from the dead. These sentiments are implied in the following dialogue, which Flowey says when Frisk kills him and then reloads the game to complete the neutral route again.
FLOWEY: Hee hee hee. Did you REALLY think killing me would make a DIFFERENCE? No. Every time you load your SAVE, I’ll come back. And every time you try to get a happy ending… I’ll be there to tear it away!
These sentiments are echoed later in the pacifist boss fight with Asriel.
ASRIEL: Then we can do everything ALL over again. And you know what the best part of all this is? You’ll DO it. And then you’ll lose to me again. And again. And again!!! Because you want a “happy ending.” Because you “love your friends.” Because you “never give up.”
Genocide Route – Chara
On the other hand, Chara is his best friend. Not just a random human. Flowey is willing to do almost anything for them. With Chara alive again, Flowey realizes he does want to live.
FLOWEY: Let’s finish what we started. Let’s free everyone. Then… let’s let them see what humanity is REALLY like! That despite it all… This world is still “kill or be killed!!” Then…? Well. I had… Been entertaining a few ways to use that power. Hee hee hee… But seeing you here changed my mind. Chara…I think if you’re around… Just living in the surface world doesn’t seem so bad.
It’s possible that the “few ways to use that power” were to continue toying with the lives of the monsters. However, now with Chara back, he just wants to live with his best friend. This is why things take a turn for the worse when he realizes that Chara wouldn’t hesitate to kill him.
FLOWEY: …No hard feelings about back then, right? H-Hey, what are you doing!? B… back off!! I… I’ve changed my mind about all this. This isn’t a good idea anymore.
Despite this fear, Flowey reappears later and destroys Asgore’s soul. It’s possible that he did so to keep Chara from leaving the underground without him. In any case, he realizes the consequences of his actions and begs Chara to spare him. He doesn’t want to die. He cares about Chara, and he wants to be with them. Flowey might also be less certain that Chara will reload to bring them back after betraying them.
Neutral Route – “Chara”
There is one exception to this, however. If the player does not complete a neutral run before starting and aborting a genocide, Flowey mistakes Frisk for Chara from then on. Chara only gains control in the genocide route, so Frisk is the one in control during the neutral route, despite a previously aborting the genocide route. This is supported by Frisk’s actions independent of the player. Regardless, once the player completes a neutral route after the aborted genocide, Flowey will dare Frisk to kill him, despite thinking they are Chara.
Perhaps Flowey dares “Chara” to kill him because he still wants to prove his motto of “kill or be killed”, especially after Chara had aborted the genocide route. Or, just as likely, Flowey is only angry with Chara. If Flowey is spared at the end of the neutral route, completed after a genocide route is aborted, he’ll ask why Chara had to “SCREW IT UP”in regards to failing the genocide route.
FLOWEY: Why, Chara…? Why? WHY? We were on our way to REAL victory… On our way to making up for LAST time! Why’d you have to SCREW IT UP? Hahaha… Is this REVENGE? [No kills] Making me watch you act so pure and happy, while I…? [With kills] Making me watch you live out your life, while I…? … No. NO. I KNOW what you’re doing. You just want to see what it’s all like. Before we TEAR IT AWAY from them. Ahahaha… Genius, Chara. Well, I’ll let you mess around. I know you’ll come back eventually. And when that time comes… I’ll be waiting for you.
The reason for his anger is soon made clear: Flowey believes that forfeiting genocide and then playing neutral is Chara’s way of teasing Flowey, of making him suffer. He asks if it’s “REVENGE” and briefly thinks that Chara has only done this to force Flowey to “watch you act so pure and happy/watch you live out your life”, quite possibly jealous of Chara’s humanoid body and “stolen soul”. Soon, however, Flowey shakes off this feeling, deciding that Chara just wants “to see what it’s all like” before the two “TEAR IT AWAY” from the monsters. He lets Chara know he’ll wait for them and disappears. He is never encountered after Sans’ phone call in the neutral end again (unless a True Reset occurs, erasing his memories).
To wrap it up, Flowey dares Frisk (or “Chara”) to kill him in neutral route to prove his point of “kill or be killed” and because he is confident they will reload and bring him back. In the genocide route, Flowey does not want to be killed because he is with Chara again, helping them on their journey, and living for Chara. He can see a future where he’s actually happy – a future spent “just living in the surface world” with Chara.
[Look at that art, so beautiful, so cute… in case you are like “Why the fuck is Emily Blunt there?” that’s my mun FC, pfft. THEY SHOULD BE IN A MOVIE TOGETHER, NO? Thanks to Amaye for the art!!]
Somehow, I’ve tricked 2,100+ of you into following me and I am absolutely fucking astonished???
This blog is a reboot of an old Steve blog I had once upon a time (I dunno if any of you remember ivehadenoughrest, but that was me, I kinda came here… secretly, pfft). I’ve been on this one for about a year, and have been RPing Steve for about 4. Way back when I first started in the RP community, I was playing Coulson because he was pretty much all I thought I could pull off. After the second or third viewing of The Avengers I thought, meh, why not give this spangled guy a try?
Now, this is the longest I’ve ever stuck with one character and if I’m honest, he’s probably consumed my life a little too much. Like, seriously, I live and breathe Steve Rogers. I go about my day wondering if certain things I do would make Steve Rogers proud. STEVE ROGERS ALL THE TIME, 24/7, IT’S SO SAD…
The non-obsessive positive that I’ve gotten out of being on here for soooo long (seriously, I remember when gifs and regular text were the way to go and certain aspects of play didn’t become such a heated debate/contest) is that I feel like because of my writing partners, I’ve really grown as a writer. I’m not nearly the best, never will be no matter how much I agonize over it and get jealous/admire other quality on my dash, but I live with it because IT’S SO MUCH FUN TO BE HERE. You all make me think, stretch my writing fingers, and just… make me feel special, you know?
Now, I’m poor as hell and can’t really afford to do a giveaway with cool swag, not to mention I have ZERO skill with photoshop (seriously, everything I have are commissioned pieces, I’m lazy af plus I feel like I’m helping someone’s cause, you know?), so this is quite simply… an appreciation post. I wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t be much of anything if I didn’t have such amazing followers and amazing, supportive writing partners.
I’m going to go against my very core here and make a little bias list (and okay the little turned into A LOT). I’ve always been against myself making these because I know I’ll inevitably leave someone out and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. JUST KNOW I (AND STEVE) LOVE YOU ALL. ALL OF YOU. LIKE A LOT. I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’VE CHOSEN ME AND STUCK WITH MY MUSE. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY LITTLE HEART THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!
So Like I said once I got my head back on that I would post a summery of what happened at the Love Love Live!
Sooooooo yeah it started like 40 minutes late, no clue why, but they did apologize for that. Anyway they came on singing LOVE IS POWER dressed in their Game show host looking outfits hahaha, but they were very sparkly. They then talked a little and Yumoto mentioned summer, which of course had them breaking out into Let’s Go Love Summer! which was a bit of a surprise to me, not a bad one though xD. They talked a little and left Massu on stage where he did Ryuu’s second character song World Wide Love Leader! Which he really got into of course, Massu is just amazing and has so much energy and charm!
Shirai came out second singing Feel it! Which of course made me want to cry because it was so beautiful, until Shirai did his dorky dance from the first live lol. I love him SO much, even his dorkyness xD Shirai seems to be the most popular with the girls to my surprise, even though I love him the most too… Still Umehara was up after and of course he is VERY popular with the girls, as is En xD He had a fedora and was being all MJ like, it was very sexy! So old school feeling >.< Sorry that my descriptions are crap! Koutaro was up after, being the cutie he was, he had tons of energy and was doing cutesy poses that made the girls scream haha. Kazu was last singing his song thanking his brother, but Kazu was also thanking the audience and fans and started crying during his performance and of course I felt like crying and the girls were either crying or laughing at how cute he was. But seriously he is such a cutie just like Yumoto and they both need to be protected!!!
We were then surprised that up in the seats VEPPer showed up, doing their skit about how much they dislike the Defence Club haha. they were wearing their versions of the school uniforms. And then broke out into Shooting Star which was great, everyone was so thrilled to see them. They then talked about Duets and then disappeared and Shirai and Massu were then on stage in their school uniforms singing Halfway which did make me tear up because it was so beautiful! They then dabbled and to everyones surprise broke out into Sync a Think where they got onto moving platforms and circled the arena. Umehara and Koutaro came out singing their first season duets in moving platforms down the isles. when they did a fist bump all the girls screamed, like when Shirai and Massu did a passing high five. Anyhow they then got on stage for their second season duet where there was some hand touching and of course the KYAAAAs were heard haha. Kazutomi came out after we saw a clip of Gora’s voice actor since he wasn’t there, telling us to give Yumoto support and help sing his parts. Which of course his voice was still played. Kazu then asked help with English xD To say “Put your hands up” It was really cute, he got the audience to do a kind of version of the wave with the lights. He was so happy. Anyhow the first song was super cute, but the second he had a bunch of backup dancers for his second season duet, and they looked like the men in black where the arena turned into a kinda rave. It was so funny seeing all of them dancing that the audience was trying so hard not to laugh.
After that we were suddenly in the VEPP theatre xD Where the twins appeared on the same couch and the voice actors in the same positions wearing their magical getups. That was just perfect xD They then did their duet song from their “Battle with the Battle Lovers” when the Battle Lovers appeared in their magical outfits doing Love is Power again. They then did Just Going Now and Boys go Strait. The live then “Ended” with them all saying Bye bye, in a very non convincing way. Everyone then cheered “Encore” for like 5 minutes haha, when they showed back up and talked in their “bath” wondering why we were all still here and how it was a bit embarrassing xD. After talking a bit they thanked everyone again, plus all of their staff and sang Love Friends, which they followed with Fallin’ Love, VEPPer came on stage too and they all thanked everyone again, also stating that there will be another Live event on March 18th, where Wombat and Gora’s voice actors will attend. Thanking everyone the Live then actually ended.
It was really amazing and so well put together! The goods sold out really fast xD I actually have to thank @d4ftka for her post about the goods being sold at 11, if not I would have missed a lot of things, so thank you so much!!! >.<
I will be giving out some of the Live goods in my next Boueibu Giveaway, as well as goods from the Najima town! Naked cat babies!!! Hurray!!!
I will also scan the event book when I get home, there are tons of pages and Shirai and Massu do the Titanic pose hahahahaha I burst out laughing!
Again I want to thank @aitaikimochi for not only going with me but for getting me a ticket to the event <333 She has helped me so much with my collection of goods. If anyone ever wants any Boueibu goods, contact her! =) She is a really good friend and the nicest person <3 ;u;
Hopefully we get a DVD release since it won’t take her too long to translate either since they didnt talk as much as in the first live haha.
I hope all this info helped you guys <3 I will get back to the game once I get home and can photoshop the stupid images together since they don’t save OTL
Okay, this is going to take a very long time to write, so first things first, I would like to point out, a couple days ago, a blog named spillit5sos, which is a hate page for 5SOS, posted an article about 5SOS groupies. It 100% fooled me and about all of the fandom. I almost left the entire fandom, just because of that stupid blogpost.But, no fear, I am still in the fandom. I realized, this shit is getting annoying, and I need to point out what has really been happening.
- I would just like to say before I insert these pictures, Ashton is a guy, Calum is a guy, all of them are men. They are attracted to girls. That isn’t a bad thing. I think what spillit5SOS is pointing out, is that they are giving out tickets for these girls to come with them down to their hotel room and have sex. Which is disgusting. But in this picture, Ashton is at a bar, not a concert, not outside of his hotel room. Not outside of a concert. Nope. Just at a bar. Talking to people. He was drunk, and I mean DRUNK. All of them were.
Here are the pictures spillit5sos shows you
Looks like they are kissing huh? But wait, even if they are kissing, doesnt look like Ash took her home? Doesn’t look like he was handing this bitch concert tickets huh?
But nope, he isn’t kissing her in any pictures. Look closer. Closer.
Sorry for the bad quality, but he is only leaning in to hear what the girl is saying..so yeah lets check that off the list of the ‘5SOS groupies’
Okay moving on
On twitter lately, Im sure you all have seen this, but people have been claiming 5SOS had sex with them, okay, so the proof they put out there, is just ridiculous. Its actually funny how people think we believe this shit. I laughed so hard when someone claimed that a dm was ashton, and it said ‘topless pics? xx’ Even I could photoshop that. Here is the picture of the dm haha :D
Does this even look real? All I have to do is change my picture to that one, then crop out the name at the top, like this person did, and claim that he did it. Easy.
Oh and here are some more hilarious ‘proof’ that they have groupies guys im literally dying of laughter i cant
“Throwback to when bianca decided to post everything Ashton texted her"
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH OKAY IM LITERALLY GOING TO DIE THIS IS JUST WAY TOOO FUNNY OKA
LOL OKAY SO THERE IS THIS BEAUTIFUL THING CALLED PHOTOSHOP. There is a small chance the dms are right, but I can even photoshop those. Its actually very easy to photo shop dms. And for the stupid iMessage thing, I can do that in 2 seconds. All I have to do is name Luke Hemmings as one of my contacts and msg them dirty things easy as that ok bye
LITERALLY CRYING RIGHT NOW I JUST SPIT OUT MY COKE OK HAHAHA I DONT EVEN HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS ONE
YEAH THIS IS THE SHIT YOUR BELIEVING OMG IM DYING
Moving on, I didn’t address the Calum leaving his hotel to meet with 2 girls. This is gonna make you laugh too. Here is the picture
I will try and be a little serious on this one even thought this is stupid.
They say he didnt stop for a picture, and they brought them back to the hotel room. The only problem is, if they had a camera, and they were taking pictures of Calum and these girls, why is there only one picture? All he is doing is walking towards these girls. What proof do you have of him taking them back to their hotel room? Like literally I wanna see the damn picture of these girls going inside of their hotel room. They had a camera, they didnt take pictures. Coincidence? I think not.
So, Spillit5SOS, Show me the damn pics :)
One more thing, the Michael photo.
Okay… this is the picture I cant explain to you guys. Obviously there is a huggeee chance that this is photoshopped. But honestly this picture may be real. I can tell you all the stupid dm shit is fake as fuck, but this mikey pic I have no idea about.
I choose to believe this is real, but honestly, photo shop is a beautiful thing so, Dont believe anything you hear on the internet.
- Please reblog this, I know alot of 5SOS fans are scared, hopefully this will cheer them up a bit. Oh and one of my followers on instagram wanted me to say
‘groupie shit’ FAKE.
Her tumblr is pvnk-mikey.tumblr.com
Anyways, I hope you guys have a lovely day and I hope this doesn’t make you worry as much.
