hey do you make your own overlay for gifs? can u do a simply tutorial on how you made the ones for seventeen unit releases? :o i've been wanting to spice up my gifs but idk how :////

i really just use nice fonts i find and also the custom shape tool that’s built in photoshop~ (on rare occasions i screen textures i find on resource blogs or DeviantArt, but here’s an interesting thread for you to look at to get some inspiration?) for the gifset i recently posted, i used only photoshop tools, so here’s a quick tutorial under the cut! 

note: i just realized i wrote TRAUMA on vocal unit’s music video after writing this entire thing and uploading the screenshots… rip;; please forgive me i’m too lazy to go back and fix it LOL BUT ITS THE SAME PROCESS

hey I really love the textures you use on your icons and I was wondering where you got them??

They are actually shapes that you have to load into ps

The bird shapes in these ↴

can be downloaded from here

The tree shapes that are in these 

can be downloaded from here

and the shapes used in these

can be downloaded from here

the rest of the shapes I use are already loaded into ps (well cs6 I’m not sure if all versions of ps have the same preloaded shapes)

to get to the shapes just click the Custom Shape Tool that looks like a little star and then the drop down menu 

anonymous asked:

how do you make grids on photoshop?? im trying and im screeching bc its not working???? sorry if you've answered this before xxxx

idk if this is the proper way to do it (if there is such a thing), but i just use the custom shape tool 

then i pick this shape:

hold down shift and make the grids as big as i want them

duplicate the layer, line them up, and merge the two layers together

then i just repeat this until i’ve covered the canvas

there’s probably a better and faster way to do it, but as long as you remember to merge your layers as you keep going it doesn’t take too long


Here’s what I’ve been working on in graphic design (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
My computer decided to die on me a while ago so I’ve been forced to work from the crappy school computers, and seeing as how the school blocks the computers from downloading TABLET DRIVERS OF ALL THINGS, I gave myself a challenge. I challenged myself to make a series out of only the custom shape tools with a little help with shading from the gradient tool.
Here are the first two in my series, Cloud Strife and Aerith Gainsborough!


Now you see it, now you don’t.

Whether you’re new to the art of contouring or are already a master of illusions, the new SEPHORA COLLECTION Contouring 101 Face Palette is currently one of the most versatile products we carry. With its eye-catching look, universally flattering shades, and helpful tutorials, this all-in-one pressed powder palette will help you to create just the right amount of shadow and highlight. Below, we break down our user-friendly creation and what you’ll love about it. KATE HELFRICH AND SARA BACHIS, SEPHORA COLLECTION PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT


We created the palette as an answer to the popular but often complex contouring trend. Also, we wanted its look to stand out among the other four-to-six shade contour palettes.


Our Contouring 101 Face Palette is perfect for beginners as well as experts because of its easy-to-use design. The X shape is custom tooled—completely unique to us—and meant to be intuitive and also visually appealing. It’s fun to look at while still being super-functional.


All of the shades included are matte, which is extremely important when contouring. The end goal is to look natural, and sparkle is always a dead giveaway.


We’ve included a step-by-step tutorial that shows you the basics. It shows you how to contour your cheekbones, forehead, nose, and jawline.


We like to begin with one of the warmer shades, of which there are two. These shades should be applied lightly to the hollows of cheeks, on the forehead along the hairline and also under the jawbone. Use the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Contour Blender #77 brush to blend.

Next we like to add emphasis to the cheekbones by adding the cool-tone contour color. This is the darkest shade and optimal for creating those natural shadows on the face. We also use this shade to define the nose.

Lastly, we apply the highlight shade, which really brings this technique to life. Swipe the banana shade under eyes, and on top of cheekbones. Finish with the pale pink shade on the bridge of the nose, on the center of the forehead, and above the lips on the Cupid’s bow to help make lips look full.
