Character Gifset Tutorial

I got a few requests to make a tutorial on my recent gifsets, and guys they’re really not hard to make! I try to use four normal gifs, three overlay ones, and then one title gif. 

In this tutorial I’m assuming the reader has a basic knowledge of how to make a gif, but if someone needs a tutorial on that I’d be happy to link it to you or make one.

I’ll be showing you how to make this overlay gif:

And this title gif:

Tutorial under the cut!

To my kind and wonderful followers

Hi guys, I was thinking a lot whether to publish these asks or not. I have no desire to actually answer this person, but I want to publish it all the same and to say a few words to my followers that show me nothing but kindness and support.

So these are some of the latest anons that I got:

“ How can we convince you to consider to check a bit the tags of the things you talk (eg: captain swan)? For real, it makes me feel like a shit when you recreate other people’s works (you always say that “anonymous” people request you) but please, take a look, the videogame post you made was already done by another girl. Tons of unique parallels, made by only one person since the episode aired stop being unique because you lust for notes or followers. Please, stop. Stop, it’s making us feel…”

“ a real shit. You nullify us, you despise us with your actions. You DON’T love the fandom. You just don’t. If you did, you’d respect our works, appreciate and share it to make sure other people can see their stuff. Please, I’m trying to not attack you, I’m trying to show you how sad and upset makes me feel you’re getting credit for things that were already done. Put yourself in your shoes.”

“ we know you run the /weareouat or /bestofcs. You just cant conceal how yo hide your works in other platforms.“  (took me a while to understand what this was about, apparently these are twitter accounts that publish gifsets from Tumblr, and they published some of my gifsets).

“ Oh, my god. You still don’t get it and probably you say your own “playing victim” version to your friends (which is funny: the ones, that compliment your work, none of them are graphic makers so of course they can’t put themselves in our shoes). I never complained about your metas+gifset, you surely have your own ideas (or accept people requests) but what I’m saying is that you need to find a line: some of your requests were already made, and many some these are unique in the tag (meaning: “

 “no one else in the tag did it). It’s upsetting when you re-make them, because these gifsets STOP being special and unique. It’s OKAY if you don’t fullfill the request, it’s OKAY to say people “hey, cool idea but it was already done by this amazing person, reblog it from here”, it’s OKAY to appreciate other people’s works and ideas and share it. It seems you have a BIG struggle by sharing it and it’s quite selfish. Some people have their thing, let them BE and ENJOY their thing. Check the tags…”

“there’s a whole world beyond your work and friend’s requests. I never criticized your works, I criticize your way of ignoring other people’s works, feelings and efforts because, usually, the original ideas/gifsets came from their heads (not requests) and that also makes it special. Consider it again, speak with gif and graphic makers, make a post if you want to know their thoughts, or speak with them privately.”

“Yeah, definitely none of the people that says nice things to you works with graphics.”    

I’m saying again that this is not an answer to the person writing these messages, and he/she will be blocked from sending me anons.

But I do want to say a few words to the rest of you. I’m feeling really torn right now. On the one hand I love getting anons, and requests, and I love making gifsets and receiving positive feedback. On the other hand, I admit that these messages get to me, and each week I’m getting more and more of these. And sadly they bother me more than I wish for them to. 

I consider myself a good person, a thoughtful person. I guess this is why I love getting requests for gifsets and happy to prepare any of them. These messages seem to suggests that I’m some sort of a bitch who doesn’t give a damn about anyone. And it’s sad for me to know that there is this group of people who thinks that (because the word “we” was mentioned so many times there).

I used to see Tumblr as a happy place. As a place where people are spreading positive vibe. I saw a lot of wonderful blogers along the way closing their accounts because of hate messages, and I always felt sad for that, and thought they were making a mistake by letting the haters get to them and in a way win over them. This is the first time I truly understand why they were doing it, and start to consider it myself.

But I don’t really want to do that, Tumblr has become an integral part of my life, and I love most of the people in our ship, and I can’t truly imagine closing my account and not giffing anymore. I also don’t want to cancel the ability to receive anons, because it would be unfair to those who wish to ask something anonymously, and ask for gif request. 

This is why I wanted to share these anons with you. To make you aware of what’s going on in my head right now. I feel like I’m in a situation that I was never at before that I’m really conflicted right now.

I just want you all to know (well, the ones that don’t hate me anyway…) that I appreciate and love you. Every follower, every like, every reblog, every kind message. You are the reason I’m here. You are the reason I’m making gifs (and spending hours doing so). I don’t feel like I need to apologies for having followers, or having some posts that are reaching high number of notes, or even accidentally repeating someone else’s gifset. 

If other gif makers don’t like me, be my guest. You don’t have to follow me, or reblog my stuff. But don’t hide behind anons sending me these messages. Honestly, I don’t get how people can live with themselves being so mean to others and actually inventing things like I’m behind other accounts to reblog my own stuff on other sites.

I’m truly really trying to focus on the positive feedback. But I admit it’s getting harder everyday.     

This was supposed to be a celebration of me getting 500 followers but I’m impatient… so while it still technically is a celebration, I’m a little early.  I hope you guys don’t mind. As promised I’m going to do what YOU all voted for, but me being me I wanted to do something different. SO, as my header states this will not just be a Tumblr Awards but also a competition.
