I just started reading the journal and I loveeee ittt. Fyi, this is my first time reading a fiction written by fans other than the ones wrote by JK Rowling. I'm not disappointed at all! Since I just started reading them so I have to scrolllll down myself so that I won't miss any journal post 😂 Never stop writing!
Oh thank you love! This is so nice of you:) messages like these make me want to continue writting forever!!
Hi bonneyq-sama! How are you? Are you ok? We miss you! Are there going to be any updates? I miss your Gruvia so much! I love to read and reread them all the time! Have you ever thought of writing a pirate and mermaid Gruvia AU? I've been watching pirates of the caribbean to much! hahahaha I really hope Gruvia will appear in the manga soon! Anyway please update your status! Let us know how you are doing!
Hello, Anon! Thank you for the lovely message and the concern! I’m sorry I haven’t been around much the past couple of weeks, my block has reached an awful level. I’ve tried to write a few things but they are pretty awful. I wrote about 1.5k of the next Guns ‘N Buttercups, but I also thought it was utter crap. :/
I’m working on a one-shot trying to shake the block away, let’s see if I can beat it!
Well, I have written those AUs, but not together! There’s
A Prince and a Pirate, which is complete and Mesmerized- this one is about Juvia as a Mermaid and isn’t complete (I actually thought of picking it back up a while ago but I don’t know how it would be received).
Hopefully there will be some Gruvia soon at the manga. I’ve been passing the pages of Fairy Tail the last few chaptes and I saw Juvia is awake now. AT LAST. Crossing fingers for a reunion!
I have finally updated the SLBP/Tenka Battle Event masterpost but I miss some material. If someone has any of the material I’m looking for or if I made a mistake in the order, or whatever, please message me. Hope it’ll help some of you!
Since I’m already tired as it is, I’ll try to make this short as possible before going to bed. With premiere of the second season of AoT, tonight got a little edgy, more so than usual thanks to the other shows like Tokyo Ghoul. Fortunately, near the end of the run it started to get a bit lighter, as well as bit somber.
But even with all that, tonight was nonetheless highly entertaining as always. Though I’m surprised there was no retro Toonami bumpers tonight, or any dings tonight, or perhaps there was and I missed. Probably will find out when I check out tonight’s posts, another thing I find highly entertaining on Saturday nights. Always looking forward to reading posts from everyone’s liveblog of Toonami.
But I digress, not to do my usual recap in the shortest way possible.
Samurai Jack: Ashi sees the good Jack has done, gets a new look, and stops the Samurai in time before he killed himself. Also, Scaramouch the robot assassin is still alive, but just a head and possible problem later.
Dragon Ball Super: Mr. Satan almost loses his reputation but is saved by his dog, while Goku is in the dog house after ChiChi caught Goku trying to fight.
DBZ Kai: Goku and the gang take off to hunt an evil space wizard, so another typical Tuesday for them.
Attack on Titan: Titans silly walk their way through Wall Rose, Beast titan’s a talkin’ and a plottin’, and Hanji is still being Hanji.
Tokyo Ghoul: We are introduced to this series’ Hisoka, Shuu Tsukiyama, and many of wish we weren’t.
Hunter x Hunter: Gon and Killua continue on being amateur auctioneers, and soon make a new friend named Zepile, who’s a professional appraiser and an aficionado of rare antiques and bizarre eyebrows.
Gundam Unicorn: Both the crew of the Argama and the Sleeves have to work together to survive the Federation conspiracy, and we’re given Full Frontal’s master plan and the location of Laplace’s Box. Meanwhile Riddhe is coming after them in the Banshee, an edgy Gundam for such an edgy character.
Naruto Shippuden: Naruto continues his sage training under a frog master that reminds me of Yoda but actually able to speak correctly. Meanwhile, “Madara” gets screwed over by Sasuke when the Eight-Tails is revealed to be a fake.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: A Tachikoma helps a young girl find her dog, while Kusanagi critiques a director’s moving film.
That’s it for the recap! Goodnight, sleep tight, and don’t let the titans bite!
Color Reference Guide to Recognize & Avoid Whitewashing
I’ve made a tutorial on how to color adjust to fix washed out colorings, but I noticed people aren’t always sure when their coloring needs fixing in the first place. So I’ve made a bunch of colorings you can use to compare your own to. It’s designed to help avoid whitewashing, but also help avoid over-correction.
If you’re not a content creator, you can also use this guide for reblogging as well. :)
Using the Guide
Each set comes in three: cool, neutral, and warm. If your coloring is bluer/whiter than the cool tone, consider readjusting.
Examples of what might be too pale/bright are beneath each set
There are various categories (daytime, night scenes, etc) for each type of scene you might encounter
Each coloring has a color palette beneath for the highlights, midtones, and shadows of the character’s face. If you’re having trouble eyeballing it, use the eyedropper tool to double check.
NOTES 1)For the sake of simplicity, I’ve used one character per category, but characters of color are not interchangeable. Identify the skin tone for the character you’re coloring and work with that. This is only meant to give a frame of reference for what is and isn’t whitewashing
2)If any of the colorings look different than what they’ve been stated as (i.e. the cool tones look too warm or some look way too dark to be visible) calibrate your monitor.It means your screen color and gamma needs readjustment.
