anyway this was really fun to colour!


A thing I randomly made! :9 I had fun with this, If you use! It would be cool if you tagged it “AU Palette” so I can see what ya made! Have fun!

anonymous asked:

So if Widow still has her normal skin tone in her new event skin, how recent do you think her kidnapping and Gerárd's death was?

I lost my first reply to this when my computer crashed, fml. 

First of all, we know that when Widow returned to Talon after killing Gerard, her physiology was altered to get her central cyanosis and make her blue (as implausible as that is). Given that Gerard is not in Uprising (he was important in Blackwatch), he was probably killed not very long before this. The Widow’s Talon skin is probably either from slightly before he was killed, )eg, after her reconditioning and before she returned to Overwatch to ‘pretend’ to be free and kill him) or maybe afterwards, after she’d returned to Talon but before her physiology was altered. 


Look, central cyanosis where the person goes fully blue is pretty rare. You do get blue-tinged skin, and lips, tongue and fingertips can go blue, but in my (admittedly) limited experience with hypoxic light-skinned folk, they first tend to go a sort of unhealthy yellow colour, then their fingertips, nose tip and lips go purple and maybe slightly blue… but the yellow and purple is a definitely progressive presentation of central cyanosis and hypoxia. 

I had trouble finding pictures, so apologies for the random foot, but here: 

and now look at Widow: 

Idk, she could already be slightly hypoxic? There’s something really unhealthy about her skin tone, it could be limited perfusion. Although it’s hard to say because it’s a cartoon, and also because apparently going blue-purple is reasonable and it’s possible for her to still be conscious even if she was that poorly perfused in her other skins, so…  

(or, I mean, it could just be that her hair colour is so unsuited to her that she looks unhealthy with it, but idk, someone chose that washed out, slighlty purple skin tone for her so maybe it’s worth reading into it?)

Anyway, it’s fun to come up with theories, even if it’s probably Blizzard just going “it looks way eviler if she’s super pale and a bit purple already”. 


Pairing: Nalu

Rating: K+

Summary: In a world where meeting your Soulmate is what brings colour to your world (quite literally), Lucy is an anomaly. She is very much in love, and very content, but can see only in greys.  That is, until someone else does colour her world. A Nalu not-quite-a-Soulmate-AU Soulmate AU one-shot.

Genre: Romance, hurt and comfort

Notes: A.k.a where I continue indulging in my guilty pleasure of messing around with popular tropes. A super big shoutout to @x-benihime for her support and all her Post Its (I’m keeping ‘em)

‘The sky was a wonderful azure, one as clear as her beautiful auburn orbs.’

Lucy stifled the need to roll her eyes. Again. 

What did azure or auburn translate to anyway?

After pausing a beat, she quickly stole a glance of the sky outside the window of the train she was in, before mentally telling herself off for actually checking. 

It had been as it always had - a nice, light, calming grey. She hadn’t met her supposed “Soulmate” yet, after all. 

Not that she really cared. 

Lucy smiled softly at that thought. She didn’t really care, because she was in love anyway. And while she couldn’t see greens and yellows, he had brought colour to her life in every other way that mattered.

She was in love, and she was loved back. 

‘Natsu,' she mused, absently toying with the fairy shaped locket around her neck. 

Their first meeting was rather unceremonious. They were classmates in college, and that had been the only thing they had in common. They were in different groups of friends, different clubs, even had different ideas of what was fun. 

They had absolutely no reason to actually meet. 

And so they didn’t – not really. 

Not until they found themselves landing the same internship. She to report, him as the cameraman - the both of them began bonding over their cranky boss and a shared determination to tell stories, and tell them well. 

She began packing him lunches when he couldn’t afford food from the canteen.

He would ensure he dropped her home on particularly late nights. 

Before they knew it, they were best friends. 

She knew his tastes, could predict his change in mood and was the only other person his pet cat Happy got along with. 

He knew her routine, her favourite books and just how she liked her coffee depending on the time of day.

They quit the internship together, helped find each other new jobs.

She was there for him when news of his missing father having passed away reached him.

He was the person who helped her run away from her abusive home. 

Moving in together seemed natural - as very platonic roommates of course. 

Though somewhere in all the making and cleaning messes, playing with Happy, cooking together, tucking each other in bed and winter-time cuddles, their feelings changed, evolved. Platonic didn’t fit anymore.

One night, sitting on their balcony and under the stars they realised why. 

“I think I love you,” he had said, as soon as the thought occurred to him.

The clarity those words brought was everything Lucy’s heart had been searching for. She thanked him for it with their first kiss.

It wasn’t short, nor very gentle. And when they parted – only for need of air – Lucy found herself lost in his wide eyes. 

Wondering just what colour they really were.

So I decided i would participate in the #DMMD2017 created by @awdplace , their art is really good and I would recommend checking them out.

I had lots of fun drawing this and it has been a while since I’ve drawn my favourite video game character/ers .

I like the flat colours and the full colours versions , so I uploaded them both .

anyway hope you guys like it .

I really love drawing girls of colour, they are just so incredibly beautiful (just for the record, everyone is but I love experimenting with different shades).
By now, you have probably noticed that drawing isn’t what I am especially good at but I will post these anyway, since when it comes to art, fun should always be the first reason to create.

This is a wild mix of coal, (oil) pastels and some acrylics, by the way (and the eyeshadow somehow reminds me of Blink 182 [whom I am going to see live in concert next month, ahh], so that kind of turned out quite nicely, I guess.

All the love,

Virgo!Lafayette from the Horoscope AU. Which is by @avenoire and @drawinggheys .

NGL I am super anxious about posting this. I wanted to do a background and get into more detail on the colouring but my muscles and joints are kinda hurting now so i just. Gave up. Which i honestly did when i already came to drawing the flowers tbh. 
ANYWAY. I really love the designs for this AU and I’m very interested in it?? Just thank you for creating this we deserve p horoscope au.

“Wow, your soulmate must be pretty worked up over something.” Your friend commented, taking a sip from her iced latte.

The two of you were chilling in the cafe that you frequented. You initially planned to talk about your school work with her, but eventually the two of you got distracted when your hair started to glow.

It was a magical thing, this whole soulmate business. You found it absolutely fascinating that there was someone out there who was made for you, and you found the fact that you could actually see how they were feeling fascinated you even more.

Equius Appreciation Night 

lizardlicks hat geantwortet: equius bench pressing sveral trolls at once

Equius doing some bodybuilding with Karkat as an instructor apparently. I wonder how long Equius would follow his orders though. The rest of them also decided to hang out. (sorry Tavros, that does kind of look uncomfortable

HOKAY SO my computer has decided to be an ass-hat so I have to take it to the place computers go to die or redeem themselves. More commonly known as the genius bar. 

ANYWAY! This is a bit of love for @the-pasta-pack of gorgeous mister Fawkes! Thank you for being my 300th follower! I hope it looks like him! -dies- Brindle is my nemesis -weeps in corner- 

Assuming my computer doesn’t move on to a better place, I think I might try doing this for every 100th follower, because I had so much fun doing this one! The colour/pattern/markings were super challenging and I had to redo the brindle like three times, but it was still a really enjoyable piece. I actually really love drawing other people’s dogs, because you get to work from refs and it’s satisfying when they look like they’re supposed to ._. lol


43 days to EOYs - {18/09/16} 
‘with shortness of breath, i’ll explain the infinite. how rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist.’

mY SEPTEMBER SPREAD!! yup… another late monthly bujo spread i know im sorry?? green was the theme of this month… september’s goals were plentiful tbh most were about academics which i kinda achieved kinda didnt?? also gearing up for the exams which are at the end of october (yup i started my counter im so scared) my holidays start in a week…. i really gotta study hard then… anyways i really had fun making this spread?? i wasnt really sure of the colours but it turned out pretty nice tbh!!

the pic on the bottom right corner was taken by my amazingly talented friend @seigakun aka kou @studykouffee!! tysm for letting me use your pic kou ily!! 

check out my studygram? @/grangergrades

I think that Mullet Stan is one of the best character designs in the whole show. like:

I can’t even describe why? Maybe its how the colour scheme fits the situation Stan was in so well? Maybe it’s because it’s fun to draw this Stan?? Maybe its because of how well it fits the whole situation of the portal incident??? I honestly don’t know. Mullet Stan is probably my FAVOURITE of all of the outfit changes throughout the show, and that’s saying something as Stan isn’t even my favourite character. I love him too don’t worry

I mean, I also really adore Ford’s design at the time

The whole Long coat and dress shirt is so pleasing to look at? Almost as pleasing as Stan’s hoodie and beanie. The fact that it was winter too probably makes me adore both designs a lot more. Winter is my favorite season of course, and the winter storm going on in the back miiiiight have given me some bias. But still!

The colours of the outside of the shack and the inside are so nice. Yeah, they’re dull (and don’t get me wrong I’m big on bright colours) but they fit both character designs really nicely! (Also in this pic we get to see just how much of a mess Paranoid Ford made in his house. I’m talking about the LITERAL MESS by the front door. JFC man) 

Now that I’m making a post about it I’m realizing JUST HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS WHOLE PART OF ATOTS! I’m gonna end this before I start rambling any more. This isn’t even a train of thought leading up to a theory, just me gushing about My favourite Stans haha

me: really proud of myself for being vegan this long!

someone eventually: @ OP must be nice to be rich and flaunt your ability to go vegan. have fun exploiting POC of colour whomp work hard in fields getting your vegetables. also pretty ableist that you’d brag about being vegan even though mentally ill people can’t go vegan. not to mention people with allergies to vegan food. so literally shut up bc Y’ALL no one cares…..anyway lmao

anonymous asked:

hi there!! may i ask if you have any tips when it comes to making a color palette/picking colors? the colors of your finished pieces (and even your wips) are always amazing to look at!

ALRIGHT ANON BRACE YOURSELF. I spent a really long time on this sO HERE COMES A REALLY INTENSIVE COLOUR TUTORIAL AKA Houdi learns much in college painting classes.
As usual, we need sth to work with so we’re gonna use my OC Anna. Everyone, meets Anna.

Anyway, every drawing starts with a sketch. We have a sketch plus a crash course on warm and cool colour idk why I wrote “hot” and “cold” here but whatever it’s late.

ANYWYAY, what you’ll need to know is red = warm and blue = cool. Anything deprived from these two are gonna be either cool or warm based on the colours surrounding them, so there is no in between. And an important thing related to palette is the line colours. If you’re painting without lines then it doesn’t matter, obv. But choosing the line colours for your drawing is very important. I used to do dark red but HAHA no. Lately I’ve been enjoying a lot of greyish purples and blues, since they’re pretty dark and neutral.

While we’re at it, let’s talk grey. Below is a horrible chart of complementary colours –> greys.

Idealy, they all should be cool machine grey. But alas, I’m not pulling out my oil paint for this and I can’t really blend digitally like I blend tradinationally sO WHATEVER. Anyway, greys are important in your piece. At least for me. It calms the colours down if it’s too vibrant, and lets the eyes travel throughout with ease. I’ll show you the differences later!

Now on to the actual colouring. Usually I start out with the lightest and then shade. Here I’ve blocked out the part where I want the shadow to be. What I do when I choose colours to shade is I use a warm and cool colour, not neccessairly complementary. It depends on which colours you like. I would advise to not use too saturated colours as of yet. I would blend those colours out, and choose the greyish/greenish colour they make. Sometimes you would get purple too, I usally just choose it from the colour wheel if I need it.

Now is the time to choose a darker slightly more saturated colours for the shadows. And just, blend everything until u die. More layers of shadows adds more depth, but it’s also can destroy all your colours altogther, so I suggest 3-4 shades + blush (is applicable) at most. (Althought 5 is when the fun really starts. It’s also kinda advanced and I suck at it lol)

Anyway, colouring lines makes the face lit up.

Hair. Same process.

For the clothes, I chose a really de-saturated blue, and a yellow that’s not too bright. You can see the most saturated thing right now on her is the hair, the eyes, and the buttons on her collar.

Below I have messed around with the saturation. And while to each their own (I kno, that really saturated one might look temtping but stay with me), if you’re just starting out with colours, try to use a more variety of saturation. Too saturated makes it very hard on the eyes, and the printing is gonna be hell on Earth. Too much de-saturation is just meh for me. Ofc, there are artists who utilizes these colours very well, but they know when to and not to abuse them. Just play around and see what you like. BUT TRY AND USE SOME GREYS THEY ARE MAGICAL. And no absolutely no black for shading. Just don’t. please.

Anyway, filters. I like overlaying. Just don’t abuse it cause when you’re doing traditional art after this you’ll cry.

Here’s some colour relationship charts I had to do in college lol it was really hard to mix them with oil paint.

I hope that was useful for you anon! There is another question for how I do BG and PLEASE BE PATIENCE WITH ME IT’S TAKING A VERY LONG TIME TO COMPILE THINGS TOGETHER ;;;;;

I’ve started a new rainbowcy!

Yeah, that’s right… I was inspired by all the cuteness that has been on my dash lately, and by certain big berry simblrs too :D I’ve already ran a rainbowcy before (the Fireflies) but I decided to discontinue them because in all honesty I haven’t really grown to love them, moreover I found out just recently that I misinterpreted the rules about the founder being of a neutral colour and the spouses being one colour berries (my Kobi and Evening both were colourful D:). Someone’s been living under the rock and it’s me. Anyway, I’m having fun so far, my founder and her spouse are adorable! No idea how I’m gonna manage so many saves though… but expect some berry sweet posts soon.


This is long overdue, (and I really apologise for that, @j-peters0n ! ), but I just had to finish this piece I started half a year ago. It took me nigh 6 months just to colour in the last piece because I barely survive every night I come home from work. I hope you like it, and guysss you really should read J’s fic, Technicolor.

As an artist, I hope that any nuance I add to a picture can be understood the people who see it, but anyways. The idea was that when they kiss Anna’s colour leaks to Elsa’s previously dull and dreary world. That’s why Anna (as seen in Elsa’s PoV) is monochromatic, and why Elsa (as seen from Anna’s PoV) is so rich in colour. And I really love this concept, as it gives me a chance to play with super bright and fun colours. Added quotes from the original story, repurposed to fit in this short comic strip version. =D



back to obscurity for me.
