colors are not my friend today

Hey friends!

It’s Meg, back at our regularly scheduled TUTOR TUESDAYS! Today we dive into some useful exercises for environment/color studies! If you have any tutorials/exercises you’d like to see, lemme know here or my personal! Keep practicing, have fun, and I’ll see you next week!

Humans are crazy

So I was hanging with friends today and it dawned on me…that human beings are insane. What we do for “fun” is insane.

We jump out of planes, jump off cliffs, climb sheer cliff walls hundreds of thousands of feet up. We have games for CHILDREN that involve pressing a button and getting shocked with electricity, and one of the most popular sports, in america at least, is full of humans bashing against each other and causes brain damage. Or humans trying to hang on to dear life on a bucking angry bull, and risk getting gored. Or just pummeling each other bloody in a ring. And we love it.

I mean, Just today, my friends and I used an electric charge machine (for flexing muscles and helping blood flow I think?) And spent an hour shocking each other and seeing how long we could last on the highest charge despite pain and spasms.

Then there are carnivals (which we also visited). Look around a carnival and nearly every ride is meant to be “fun” but also cause discomfort. Heights, spinning, sudden drops, high speeds, often combinations of all of these. They’re like giant colorful torture machines, and we LOVE them. We have whole parks dedicated to bigger, more complicated versions of carnival rides and roller coasters.

We actively seek out things that cause us discomfort…for FUN. Life risking or painful things for FUN.

Can you imagine what aliens would think about that? Imagine a poor aliens reaction upon coming to earth to research human passtimes and just being confronted with all these crazy hunans doing crazy, uncomfortable, sometimes painful things….for fun. Like,“Oh my gosh they torture themselves for fun why why why? How do we fight something that gets a kick out of hurting itself??” Imagine taking an alien visitor to a carnival or amusement park and them just being horrified.

Alien- What in the stars… Why have you taken me to a torture camp?? I thought we were friends!
Human- what do you mean? It’s a carnival! It’s fun!
Alien- but there are instruments of torture and interrogation everywhere! And…did you decorate them in colorful, pleasing lights?? What sick joke is this?!?

Or inversly, can you imagine a more serious situation wherein a human is captured and taken to be interrogated and are just…terrified. imagining what this warlike alien species has uo their sleeves, how they would torture them for information they sought. The master interrogator is this scarred, gruff alien who’s made it his life work to torture and rip that information away.

And then the human is taken into the torture room and just stops and stares at the whirl a twirl ride in the middle of the room. And they see this carnival ride and the interrogator and everyone else seem wary or scared of it, but the human just gets excited. And the whole time it’s running, the aliens are just flabbergasted because the human who’s being tortured is just laughing and grinning and even after puking is still yelling “again, again!”

No other race tortures themselves for fun. Human beings are just the craziest things.

meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control

Hey friends, it’s Meg!

Keep practicing, have fun, and I’ll see you next Tuesday!

A very well known dangerous male yautja arbiter goes to earth to hunt and accidentally befriends a 4 yo girl. She uses him like a coloring book, practices using nail polish on him, braids his "dreadlocks" but everyone just thinks she's talking about her imaginary friend. "Mommy I made a friend today! " "Oh really honey? Thanks nice ." "Yeah! His head touches the top of my room! His skin is pretty colors! His hair is funny but pretty, and his face is really cool!" "He sounds like fun baby"

Ps the little girl names him “Mr. crabby” because the way he talks sounds like grunting to her

anonymous asked:

Can I please have some Otayuri fluff for my Bday (TODAY! lol)? And guess what....I'm gonna skate with friends today!😎 Love, From an Italian

I don’t take requests, but I colored this sketch thing so here you go. I hope you have a happy birthday and a wonderful week !!

haha A friend of mine has been doing art on the small playing card sized card stock recently and it reminded me that I have a huge pile of blank ones that I should work through. And lo and behold, when I found my pile again, I had this Jasper bust already sketched out. So I just inked it up and colored it today. The lines are probably not the best because the humidity was killing me today. Also didn’t scan very well but ah well. Still like her expression.

“Better luck next time.”


Bank Robber AU for @ambiguous-eyepatch for the Valentines @aftgexchange!

I had a lot of fun drawing these and I hope you like it! 😃

I realized too late that this wasn’t exactly what you meant by your prompt, sorry about that, but I hope it’s still okay!

The rest of my mini-fic/headcanons/ramblings about this AU are below the cut:

So earlier today I got rather pissed off when some rude anon who has probably never made a GIF in their lives decided to attack my friend (and one of the best GIFmakers I know) for no reason telling them not to talk about GIFmaking like it’s a big deal since it’s just taking clips from existing video. I was hoping to forget about this, but I couldn’t stop thinking about how many non-GIFmakers really do think that’s all GIFmaking is (including myself before I started making GIFs to some extent). Luckily, most people aren’t that rude about it and know not to insult content creators over a topic they actually don’t know much about…but I still feel the need to discuss some of the often lengthy effort that goes into making medium to high quality GIFs.

As a disclaimer, I’m NOT trying to be elitist and I honestly don’t consider myself one of the top tier GIFmakers. I also don’t think that GIFmakers HAVE to put in a lot of effort to alter GIFs from the original video frames if they don’t want to. It’s just a hobby where we try to capture/highlight cool moments using a severely limited and dying file format lol…so it’s really up to the individual how much they wanna put into it. However, the truth of the matter is that many GIF and graphics makers that contribute greatly to numerous fandoms DO put in a significant amount of effort to make their GIFs look different from and better than the original video.

Fuck Seattle Police and Fuck Seattle. Sincerely, a Seattleite

Seattle Police killed 32 yr old Charleena Lyles in front of her children today after she called to report a burglary. Charleena Lyles did not have a knife as police officers claim. She was also 3 months pregnant. Thanks again Seattle for proving to the world why you have one of the most racist police departments in the country. The same police department that was under federal investigation for excessive force, particularly against people of color. Y'all stay under the radar because you’re a “progressive, liberal” city but POCs in Seattle know the truth. Shoutout to my friends and acquaintances in Seattle who met with Charleena’s family and helped organize the vigil for her. I’m so sick of hearing about another black person killed by police. I’m so sick of excessive and unnecessary force that these cops use. For fuck’s sake, soldiers in the army can’t even fire at the Taliban unless fired upon but we got these motherfucking trigger happy cops that will shoot anything that’s black and breathes.

“America: Where a pregnant, mentally disabled black woman will be executed in front of her kids, in her own home, by the cops she called to protect her. Scream her damn name. #CharleenaLyles”

  • since i’m going into my sophomore year of high school, i thought that i really needed to get my act together. my freshman year went poorly due to mental health issues but i’m hoping to pick myself back up and come back stronger with the help of the studyblr community.

This is my friend Jen from college - she’s like 55 years old and came back to school for computer sciences. We found out today that she’s Asexual and Queer, after we commented on her Ace colored jacket. Jen has been married to Mar, her wife, for almost 2 years. Jen is super fucking cool. It’s true that birds of a feather flock together!

Pairing: You / Taehyung (V)

Rating: R

Warning: Murder mystery, future smut

Word Count: 5,704

Summary: The world of magic is divided into dark and light, witches and warlocks, choice and fate. You’re a prodigy of light, a witch who works within the police force. You’ve heard of Taehyung in passing, spoken in whispers as the warlock of dark who has the world holding it’s breath.  All this changes on the night you’re assigned as security for a mysterious singer named V and you come face to face with Taehyung himself. What happens after that might be fate.

For my birthday, Work Squish got me this ridiculous vintage cookbook (copyright 1963) because we’ve talked a few times about how I’m trying to be better about making actual food. Thought I’d share some of the ridiculous, hilarious, and horrifying things about it. Click on the pictures for snarky commentary!

Also, not gonna lie, as I was paging through this I was definitely thinking “oh, hey, old-timey recipes and cooking with gelatin - bet @copperbadge would get a kick out of this!”

#transformationtuesday Today I turned 32. Felt like an appropriate moment to stop and appreciate how much I’ve grown and learned in the last year– How much more comfortable I am with myself and how peaceful my heart feels. Super grateful for my loving and supportive family and friends, and so grateful to finally feel unburdened by lifelong fears and insecurities. Life isn’t always 100% peaches and sunshine (it never is) but I feel like I’m living in color again and living as authentically as possible.
