You know, I’ll readily admit that so far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole has had consistently better film output than the current DC Extended Universe.

But on the other hand:

  • DC didn’t make Superman secretly a member of the Klan during a surge of racist and xenophobic rhetoric and politics in the US
  • DC also didn’t make their Jewish characters like Harley Quinn or Batwoman into pseudo-Nazis while the US is under a blatantly anti-Semitic political administration
  • DC also didn’t ask comic shop employees to wear T-shirts with pseudo-Nazi logos or to cover their store logos with pseudo-Nazi symbols
  • DC also, in my knowledge, never blamed slumping sales on being too diverse in their lineup
  • Which isn’t to say they haven’t had their share of tone-deaf and flat-out insulting gaffes, but when New 52 didn’t do as well as they expected I know they didn’t blame it on having a Green Lantern and a Batman who were Muslim
  • Marvel Studios has yet to release a solo superhero film starring a woman (Elektra is a Fox film).  DC’s had two female-led cinematic releases (three if you consider Evey to be the main character of V for Vendetta), those being Supergirl and Catwoman.  And yes, Supergirl and Catwoman were terrible, but at least they exist.  An attempt was made
  • The current DC Extended Universe will also give us Wonder Woman before the MCU gives us Captain Marvel
  • If the current planned lineup for the DC Extended Universe holds, then their first five solo film leads will probably be two white men (Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill and presumably whoever plays Captain Marvel in Shazam!), a Jewish woman (Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot), a Native Hawaiian man (Aquaman, Jason Momoa), and a black man (Cyborg, Ray Fisher).  The first solo film in the MCU with a lead who isn’t a white man will be Black Panther, their thirteenth solo film.
  • While Marvel was making Captain America and Magneto into HYDRA agents, DC made Snagglepuss into a gay Southern Gothic playwright because why not
  • While DC has its own fair share of fuckery, bad decisions, pointless, flow-wrecking crossovers, and other such garbage, at least they haven’t blown so many dog whistles at the alt-right in the past year that it’s very hard to consider it tone-deafness or coincidence at this point

So in conclusion, as we currently stand, DC’s on Marvel’s left.

Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed for PS3 - the latest project currently in development at the publisher’s Montreal studio.[…]

As an acrobatic young killer named Altair, players will work for the Assassins, a secret society dedicated to ending the Crusade.

The Yuri!!! On Ice Movie is currently in development!

Both Kubo herself and Studio MAPPA announced today that the movie’s production is underway. Kubo is working very hard to deliver this movie to all the waiting fans. She asks for our patience, as she said it is going to take a while.

Diane Von Furstenberg and Barry Diller at Studio 54, 1978

bouncing off the previous reblog, if you want to create a chromatic aberration effect in clip studio paint, the steps are the same but the layer mode you want is darken as opposed to ‘shade’.

I just made a little auto action which will set up the layers for you:

You can download it here, to use it open the auto actions window (window > auto actions), and right click > import set…

alternatively you can drag the file into the auto actions window.


and while on the subject of auto actions, you can create a shortcut for them by going to file > shortcut settings…, then choosing auto action from the dropdown

Billboard: Niall Horan Braces for Stardom Outside One Direction, With Advice From Justin Bieber & The Eagles

When Niall Horan decided to move from London to Los Angeles in early 2016, it’s no surprise that he chose a house in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of ’60s folk-rock culture. Horan was the one ­toting a guitar in One Direction, the British boy-band juggernaut that was just then going on a hiatus, and he’s got the soul of a singer-songwriter: He’s charismatic, witty and sensitive, but also easygoing and no-nonsense. Viewed alongside his bandmates – born rock star Harry Styles, “sensible one” Liam Payne, “funny one” Louis Tomlinson, moody R&B prince Zayn Malik – Horan, 23, is sort of like the middle brother: the most ­approachably handsome, the second-most popular across social media (29 million Twitter followers; 19 million on Instagram) and the most likely to lust after a gig at the historic Los Angeles rock club The Troubadour. “Playing for, like, 500 people. What more do you want?” says Horan. “I’ve had some good moments with screaming ­teenagers, but I like when the room is completely dead. It’s a ­different kind of respect. People are actually listening.”

legend-of-sidon  asked:

how do you get your lines so smooth? im fairly new to drawing on a tablet but my lines are always shitty and messy so i was wondering if you could give some tips? i love your art btw

First of all, thank you! :D And second of all, I currently do all of my line art in Clip Studio Paint, but my tips should work for any art program in general.

1.) When you’re a newbie to line art, get your sketch as clean and close to the final product as possible. It’ll help make the line art process easier since you don’t have to finagle around with proportions and such during the line art phase.

I, personally, am fucking lazy, so my sketches are fucking shit. When you’re more used to line arting you can kinda just half-ass sketch and fix up the line art to look good as you go. But that’s up to your own personal preference.

2.) I do my line art in very quick strokes that cover as much mileage as possible. To get the best lines, you want to use the least amount of strokes possible, like golf or something.

I also do this for general sketching too, so if you ever thought my sketches looked nice and clean it’s cause I’m basically doing speedrun line art with very little care in how well the line art actually looks.

3.) You can click undo and repeat the stroke as many times as you want. It’s one of the pluses of working with digital art.

4.) It’s also ok to just sketch it out and then clean it up a bit. I do this more for smaller areas and smaller details, like hair. I wouldn’t have to do this if I bothered to cleaned my sketch up more lol

5.) My line art has weight variation to it depending on a number of factors, but the major factor is light source. The lines closer to the light source are thin, while lines further away from the light source are thick. There’s no necessity to do this, I just think it gives the lines more oomph.


6.) You may have noticed that I’m doing the line art in a magenta color (or pink, I actually don’t know the exact color since I have flux on) and not in black (or dark grey, cause I never use black for line art). With black line art, you see the tiniest mistakes so easily and you can spend forever fixing tiny little things. Using a different color helps me get the line art done faster without wasting so much time fussing on things. I change it to dark grey or whatever color I want after I’m done. This tip doesn’t necessarily improve the quality of your line art, but it sure as hell speeds up the process.

And here it is all done!

I hope my tips help!

  • 2d was a teenager during the 90s which means that he knows all the lyrics to all the quintessential 90s songs. when noodle was little they would blast backstreet boys and nsync throughout kong studios and dramatically sing along and jump on the couch pretending to put on concerts. it helped get noodle used to performing and also taught her how to pronounce words in english. even now as an adult noodle will start playing i want it that way on the home speaker system and 2d will show up in the doorway twenty seconds later dramatically screeching “TELL ME WHY AIN’T NOTHING BUT A HEAAAARTACHE.” they both go OFF and have accidentally broken multiple items because they were jamming out so hard.
  • murdoc is half mexican from his mom’s side. it’s part of the reason he went to mexico after phase 1 and why he can speak spanish. he learned rudimentary spanish from visiting his mom in the sanatorium as a little kid, but since he couldn’t visit her much and she died when he was about 11 or 12 he had to teach himself the rest of the language in his 20s.

more under the cut!

Zayn Malik sounds off on fashion, fame, and the meaning behind his home studio

“When I first moved in, I was staying here on a mattress for about six months. I didn’t really want to do anything to it. I just liked the way it felt… there was nothing to really hold onto.” Would you ever guess that these were the words of Zayn Malik, singer, heartthrob, and current Vogue cover star? We certainly would not have, at least until now. Sounding off on everything from fashion to fame to his current living situation, Zayn gave Vogue a look inside his home studio on a recent afternoon.

“The studio is kind of like what I always envisioned my bedroom to be like as a child, but couldn’t quite ever afford,” Zayn says. A cursory glance around quickly reveals that the space is indeed brimming with possessions that a younger Zayn would likely have approved of. Supreme stickers are seen repeatedly, while a black and yellow speaker set is layered with sticker depictions of everyone from Mario to Bart Simpson. In another corner, a figurine of Toy Story’s Slinky Dog can be glimpsed.

Nearby, a collage that started off small now takes up an entire wall. (“What I initially thought was, I’m going to put some posters in frames, I’m going to paint them… . I never ended up doing that,” Zayn admits.) And not far from there, a coffee table has been creatively filled with Zayn’s personal comic book collection. “They were in a safe somewhere,” Zayn explains. “They had cobwebs and stuff on them. We just decided to take them out and put them in the coffee table.”

A creative use of an almost forgotten set of possessions. But as Zayn says of all the items here, they are “little bits of me.”
