You asked me, what kind of life we had just surrendering. It wasn’t, It wasn’t a life. What we did back there, what we’re doing now, making a future for Judith and for Glenn and Maggie’s baby, fighting the fight, that’s living. You showed me that.

NARSissist Unfiltered I&II Cheek Palettes RGB-codes

I love makeup in real life and in The Sims. I might not be able to create makeup for The Sims 3 (I would love to but don’t really have the patience/time) but I am able to create some colors schemes that can come in handy. Anyways, here comes the two palettes in RGB-codes and HEX-codes with pictures in game and from the NARS website. For the pictures I used a base game blush, just to showcase the actual colors, but I recommend using the colors on custom makeup. 

The colors can be used for highlighters, bronzers and blushes.

I take no credit for this. Just thought it would be useful for some people (including myself). Enjoy!

Do you have a specific method for making sigils?

I do, yes. I’ve talked about it before - the old post can be found on @thesigilwitch [here] - but that is over two years old now, so I suppose I can update it, lol.

First, I come up with a statement of intent - a sentence that will dictate what my sigil does. All of my sigils are based off a sentence - I do not draw symbols without an intent or desire in mind, and if I do I don’t consider them sigils.

For an example intent, let’s go with “wellness and positive energy permeates my life.” This was a recent sigil I did, so I can give you examples of my steps.

I write that statement at the top of a piece of paper. I use all uppercase letters, because I think it adds more power, but that is a personal choice.

From there, I break down the statement, make it more abstract, by removing any duplicate letters. I only want one of each letter occurring in the sentence. Some people say to remove the vowels as well, but I like to keep them - it adds more variety to the shapes I can use when making my sigils. Thus, my intent of “wellness and positive energy permeates my life” ends up looking like “welnsadpoitvrgymf.” Try pronouncing that, lol.

The next step, for me at least, is to break down those letters further into their basic shapes. A W becomes \ / \ /, e would be | - - -, and so on. (Again, I always use uppercase letters when doing this.) This gives me more building blocks to create my sigils with, and more variety for their creation. I don’t like my sigils to look like a bunch of letters thrown together - I prefer it to be more abstract, and it is more visually appealing to me that way. When I break down the letters, I tend to only draw one of each shape, instead of all the individual lines and curves. So, doing that, “welnsadpoitvrgymf” becomes | \ / - ~ ) ◯ ( .

At this point, the top of my sigil sheet looks like this:

I often glance at that when I am actually sketching my sigils, to use it as a focus and help reinforce the intent in my mind.

Now that I have that done, I start sketching. Sometimes I use the pieces of the letters, sometimes I use the whole letters, sometimes I use neither and just wing it. There have even been cases where I combine some or all of those techniques for one sigil. It mostly comes down to what I “feel” the sigil needs. In certain cases, that means attempting new creation methods, which tend to be some I have found posted by others here on Tumblr. For the most part, however, I stick to my creation method, if it can even be called that lol.

However I decide to draw the sigil, I do a few sketches of different designs until I get one I like, which means it has to aesthetically appeal to me. Sometimes this happens in one sketch, sometimes it takes two or three (the average). I once filled two sides of a sheet of paper with like 16 sigils for the same intent, which took over an hour, and I still didn’t like any of them. I learned that it was important that the sigil looks good to you, because it connects it to you on a personal level - much the same way I believe it is important to like how a tarot deck looks. That may not be true for all, but it is true to me now.

The sketch page for the sigil “wellness and positive energy permeates my life” looked like this when I was done:

Generally, I don’t keep drawing after I find a design I like. I typically star the one I plan on keeping and using. I didn’t on this page; however, I went over the design a few times to solidify the lines exactly how I wanted them. The final design is the one on the top right, this one:

However, when I drew that particular design, I had the page flipped, so it technically should look like this:

As you can see, there are erase marks from where I tried lines out, but decided I didn’t like in the end. I don’t feel that has any impact on the sigil’s effectiveness.

The one right next to it was the first one I drew, and I almost went with that one as the final design, but I was concerned it looked too much like a very infamous racist symbol, so I passed on it. I was told it didn’t; however, since I had those negative connotations already in my mind and associated with that design, I felt it would be and for me to go with it in the end.

At that point, the sigil is ready to be used. However, I tend to make digital copies of my sigils, because I do post them online for other people’s use. This sigil was actually made for an intent suggested by a friend.

I either scan the page to upload my sigil, or I take a crappy picture with my cell phone and email it to myself. Either way, I get it on my computer and open it with Paint Tool SAI. From there, I redraw the sigil, which also adds another element of aesthetic to it, because I really enjoy how clean and sharp the sigils look when done with the line tool in SAI. 

When the sigil is made digital, I tweak some of the lines a bit further to keep them looking exactly as I want, how I intended the design to look in the first place, even though it may not have come across so well on the page. I also like to play around with line thickness.

Mostly the sigils are made transparent, with a white glow around the edges for visibility purposes; sometimes I create simple color backgrounds with the color corresponding to the sigil’s intent. It depends on what I feel like doing with it. 

When I post them online, they tend to get watermarks, if I can remember to do it. For a while they didn’t, because you can’t create text layers in SAI, but I have Photoshop back now, so I’ve begun utilizing the watermarks again.

The final version of this sigil ended up like this:

Now that I look at it again, the large curve needs fixing, lol. 

And that is how I make my sigils! I dunno if I needed to go so in-depth, but here it is. I hope you made it all the way to the end, and I hope it helps you, or provides inspiration for your own method, or whatever. I don’t really know why you asked me this tbh. But you know, enjoy!

BurntPasta’s Flipnote Studio 3D Color Mixing Tutorial!

I do my best to showcase how I mix colors using different colors and brush textures/fill textures~

*COLOR LAYERING IS THE KEY <3*

A lot of my color combinations were created by experimenting. Sometimes something would start off green with a layer of white using the first texture with a layer of blue on top using one of the later textures and I would end up making a lighter turquoise color.. 

I encourage everyone who animates or even just ‘arts’ in general on flipnote to experiment with all kinds of color combinations! :3 

For example: The best grey is actually created with the checker pattern brush of yellow on bottom, blue on top! (or vice versa!) It can be seen on the mettaton ex doodle seen above! Using white on black kind of creates a harsher grey that does not look metallic at all and blends in too much with the black outlines..

Another example is using Red on Green in the checker pattern brush creates a warm brown… Perfect for trees, monster kid stripes, or even hair color!

I tend to create the colors on the character first and then go back with either of the stripe pattern brushes with black to create shading since it allows both of the under-colors show through… But for high-lights, I prefer to use the checker brush and paint on white. ^^

Always remember that the more spaced out your brush is, the more you will see colors on lower layers, so you do a lot more mixing because of this! 

~~~~~
I would like to take a second to thank the anon who asked ‘how I color with Flipnote’ that prompted this tutorial! <3 

I’ve been meaning to do one for a while now, but I’ve never done a full-fledged tutorial before… ^^; 

I HOPE THIS HELPS! <3

PS: My favorite colors to make in flipnote are the purple made with red and blue and the checker brush, and turquoise made the same way with blue and green. lawl. >3<

Hello Cookiez! I hope you're having a great day so far (or whatever time you have where you live haha)! I also have a quick question for ya. So you see, when I draw, my hands tend to get kinda shaky. Sketching and doodling isn't usually an issue, but everytime I do lineart (both on paper and digital), my lines look... off. If I go quickly, it looks messy. Lineart looks so easy ;A; Any suggestions on what I should do?

HmmMMm lineart is extremely difficult. i’m so lazy that i don’t do it. i literally created my color style around the fact i can’t lineart mah art. Σ(・ิ¬・ิ)

On which program do you work on? maybe the line stabilizer of paint tool sai could help u! 。(*^▽^*)ゞ

(If u want to draw on paper, take your time i guess..it takes time and practice to lineart properly )
