how do you decide what to do with your face in pictures? there are a lot of tutorials on posing but they mostly just talk about the body and i feel like my face looks boring or weird in most pictures

AS ALWAYS this stuff takes practice. You get more comfortable the more you do it, but there are tips and shortcuts to help you achieve something more in your control then just smiling and hoping you look right. 

My favorite tips are the, “MMMM”  “me” “haha” and “you” tricks! And what they are, are words to say to yourself during your pose to help train your face into specific structures. 

For smiling for example, specifically with your mouth closed, practice saying “MMM” when you pose! It creates a really natural curve to your mouth, without making your cheeks ache and contract when you force yourself into a fake smile. I know this all sounds stupid, but seriously try it. Try it in some selfies, practice agnling your head. Say it out loud if you need to!

Here’s me saying “MMMM” to make a closed lipped smile! 

For an open mouthed, natural, teeth smile, say “Me” when you pose!! You can either say “Me” as you smile for a prounouced smile, or simply say it as the shutter goes off to catch a more candid looking, happy state of your face. 

These are all “me” poses, where im literally saying the word under my breath to train my face. 

Saying “You” so youself as you exhale through your lips, creates a very neutral, easy, UN TENSE, looking face. Its my go to for everything. YOU poses are awesome for static poses, where you just need your face to look normal, natural, and pretty. Lol. It’s great cause if you dont do this and keep your mouth closed, you often look boring or too stiff. Sayng “you” activates your muscles and livens your face enough that you dont look dead or lifeless. 

These are all You poses. I’m literally saying that word a I pose. And some of these I say YOU while putting a little smile in there by thinking happy thoughts.

I don’t use “HAHA” as much, but it really is just like you might think. Saying HAHA out loud as you pose creates that easy going, natural look of laughing. 

As you might tell, Posing is a lot about ACTING as well as knowing your body. 

SO GET LOOSE. In between photos im CONSTANTLY moving around. And after a few shots im cosntantly stretching my mouth wide, making fish faces, puffing my cheeks, RELAXING my muscles so they don’t do that horrendous School Day smile that we all dread. 

And again PRACTICE. Get in front of that mirror and try out a bunch of stuff. Try DIFFERENT WORDS to see what saying them dos to your expression. Try angles and poses at home, so when the camers in front of you, your ready. 

Then youll be able to do more complicated stuff too.

The spell casting is one of the things I appreciate about the show over the books.

First time sewing with vinyl and satin fabrics b/c i wants to expanded working with diff fabrics. My issue is that I have no idea why my stitching isn't working out? Do I need diff sewing tools for these fabrics, I don't want to resort in using a glue gun and burn my rings again.

YES! You do need different sewing tools for stretch fabrics. 

McCalls actually has a great guide for this!

yo so where exactly is "add custom links" in edit theme lil ol nonny is lost and trying to get organized

It depends on your layout I believe. Not sure about the default one that comes with every new tumblr account but if you have a custom one, there should be little boxes in the scroll window on “edit theme” that look like this:

And that’s where you’ll put them! Or, if you have a page that you need to add a link to but don’t have these (for whatever reason) there’s a little button at the top of each page that looks like this:

And you can choose to “show a link to this page”, which will automatically put a link on your page. Which, I assume, is what you’d do if you have the default tumblr layout. If this makes any sense.. lol, hope this helped out!

Sempre gostei de falar muito, meu pai sempre diz que eu me empolgo quando começo, meu professores sempre chamaram minha atenção durante a aula porque eu não fazia silêncio, portanto, sempre fui muito boa com palavras. O problema é que, quando se trata de nós, essas palavras somem. Não consigo encontrar nenhuma palavra entre as 380.000 da língua portuguesa, ou alguma expressão dentre os 6912 idiomas no mundo, que possa nos representar ou nos descrever. As centenas de definições que existem para “amor”, “casal”, “relação”, parecem não significar nada perto do que eu sinto por você. Mas talvez esse seja o nosso segredo, talvez ‘não definir’ seja a melhor coisa. Quando a gente define, a gente limita. E limite é uma coisa que nunca combinou comigo, muito menos com nós. Somos pura intensidade, pura sinestesia. E espero que continue assim, porque essa parada de sentimento limitado nunca foi nossa praia. E que nosso envolvimento nunca acabe, porque né, você me completa, moreno. Sua paciência encaixa perfeitamente no meu caos, e a minha inquietação combina perfeitamente com a sua calma. Bagunça? Talvez. Mas é a bagunça mais linda do mundo.

Tutting Magick (A.K.A. Hand Gesture Magick)

So I want to start off with saying that Tutting Magick was exposed to me via pop culture, however it does have its history in religious studies as well. The purpose of this post is to create a starting point for useful Tutting Magick discussions as well as form a foundation for the theme of Tutting Magick. 

I think Tutting Magick has a wide range of uses, and I can understand why it would not also be used by some. 

Firstly lets go over what Tutting is. Tutting is essentially hand dance movements. These movements can flow or they can “pop” (think of Pop/hip-hop style dances with your digits).

could you do a tutorial on how you draw eyes?

sorry that i’ve left this sitting in my askbox for so damn long but i didn’t know how to answer this really? my eyes are super simplistic and require minimal coloring, for example:

all of the examples above have been done in the past few months or so with various art softwares but i havent really changed how i draw or color them, my eyes always start as solid blocks of dark colors before i start adding patches of lighter colors when rendering/painting (whatever you want to call it). overall, just have a general idea of the eye shape you’re drawing like, the top right example has smaller, down-turned eyes compared to the bottom left who has large eyes with upturned corners. it’s all about the shape.

here’s the bare bone process in drawing eyes which is usually only two steps but you may need to dick around and render for a while before you get something desirable (which is the main reason i don’t post sketches/”lineart”, nothing stays the same by the time i finish!!!!) but yeah: 

also protip: a multiply layer in a warm or cool gray (sometimes a light purple or blue too?? experiment) over the eyes can really help add shadows quickly, i always use it

i hope this kiiiiiinda made sense in a way
