different combinations of color

witch tip ✨

can’t remember what a crystal does? can’t figure out what a person’s aura color means? what color candle do i use for a protection spell again? 

colors are always universal! whether its gemstones, candles, auras, flowers, or even sometimes chakras, colors typically help assign everything similar traits. its great to have a general knowledge of colors and i think its something almost every witch should know! its another thing that is personal to you. how do certain colors make you feel and what do they mean to you? your color meanings don’t have to resemble other witches’ lists. i know there’s lots of color lists out there, but here’s my own short list with wiggle room.

☁️ white - purity, blessing, calming, cleansing. (crown chakra.. some see this as a richer purple or violet) 

🏴 black - rid of negativity, protection. (in some cases for auras it can mean bad signs, but not always)

❤️ red - passion, lust, anger. (root chakra)

🎀  pink - affection, love, relationships.

🌞 orange - confidence, joy, travels, success. (sacral chakra)

📒 yellow - happiness, intellect, creativity. (solar plexus chakra)

🍀 green - growth, luck, envy, success. (heart chakra)

💧 blue - peace, emotions, meditation. (throat chakra)

🔮 purple - spirituality, higher knowing, meditation. (third eye chakra)

🌰 brown - animals, home, grounding.

⚙️ grey - security, neither “good” nor “evil”, neutrality.

💰 gold - masculinity, success, solar magick.

⚖️ silver - femininity, divine, cosmic influence, lunar magick.

*remember for some colors a lighter or darker shade may be appropriate for different magick.

if something has more than one color, think of the combination of those two colors and how they will help you. need to protect yourself from those who bring you down? combine self love and protection with rhodonite! want some powerful grounding energy straight from the sun? charge some tiger’s eye in sunlight!

always make magickal meanings your own! happy color casting!

LGBT Pride: In 1978, San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker designed what is believed to be the first modern gay pride flag by combining eight stripes, each a different color with its own symbolism: pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for the human spirit.

Hello! Your art is SO fantastic! I was wondering if you were planning to create tutorials on the way you color or explain the steps it. Thank you.

Thank you! And about my coloring.. errr.. it’s a huge mess, that’s what it is haha. 

I don’t think it really fits for a tutorial, but I can explain how I do things; most of the time I just play with gradients, to be honest. And it’s a huge pile of just trying out what could look fine. 

Firstly, I do the sketch and block it out, and depending on the picture I may color some areas as darker and lighter. After that’s done, I’ll try out different color combinations with different layer modes, and in the most simplest cases it may take only one gradient modifier for me to color the picture:

Tho, usually it takes handful of different layer modes to get the picture colored. 

I recommend looking for tutorials of coloring from black and white, that’s the core of the technique I use! 

 And it’s rather all fun and dandy until I get to coloring paintings. In those cases it’s usually tens and tens of layers for color alone:

anonymous asked:

You said you're completing a color combo chart, what's that?

Omg, I am glad someone asked!

If you guys notice, I use a ton of different colors. It’s because I always do different color patterns to try different combinations and I was always frustrated cuz I used to reevaluate my drawings to see which colors I’ve already used and which I haven’t. So I ended making a color combo chart in order to guide me in which colors i haven’t done and which I have used too much. Here it is:

The first line (Horizontally) shows the colors that I use at their most basic shade. The ones below them are the the color combos by pair. Here is an example of how I use them in my art as a guide: 

If you notice most of my pieces above are centered on those colors but as you’ve read in my other tutorials I base my work on three colors not just two. That’s because the third color is any color that matches the 2 colors given by the color combo chart. Here is an example of how I pattern my artwork on the color combo chart:

1. Orange - The shade is different but it is still classified as orange
2. Violet -  The shade is different but it is still classified as Violet  
3. Extra Color - Red
So after each piece, I mark my color combo chart on which pair I used. I guess it’s kinda like color bingo. Anyway hope this was helpful!

anonymous asked:

you like knb? I just went through your knb tag and you seem to have drawn/even cosplayed for it ! wow! what are your ships? will you be drawing for the movie that came out ?

AHAHAHAHHAHAHA

MAN, like is a very mild word for how big my KnB phase was, and it’s definitely one of those fandoms I always go back to, and MAN was the movie a slap to the face of nostalgia and wonderful memories ;A;. I didn’t produce much content for it back in the day, I didn’t have much time to draw in general back then, but I wanted to try again now that my art’s changed a bit and:

Something like that <3

Yep! I cosplayed a TON of characters from it. Originally I wanted to cosplay Kuroko or a member of GoM, but instead I ended up wanting to match my friends so I cosplayed Takao, Himuro, Momoi, Kagami, and Nijimura >.>;;;; I ended up much fonder of these characters as a result tho LOL

and MAN, SHIPS. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAAHA

If you thought my Yuuri poly shipping was bad…look at it this way, I mainly ship Yuuri with 4-5 husbands, and why not throw in the rest occasionally, the more the merrier right? This is around the number I tend to ship many of my fandom protags with (which is still a lot oops).

But KUROKO. Kuroko to me is the ultimate harem queen. To me, he has, minimum, EIGHT husbands. GoM + Kagami + Takao + Himuro. But I also ship him with a ton of other charas on the side like Kasamatsu, Nijimura, Hanamiya, Haizaki, Mayuzumi, Imayoshi, Miyaji…man the list is endless. I LEGITMATELY SHIP KUROKO WITH EVERYONE. (and Nash! my mother screams in the background…)

I started out with a strong bias for AoKuro that still remains on occasion, but reading a massive amount of pixiv fics started leaning me heavily towards Takao. So yeah, if I had to pick one, TakaKuro is my fav now. I also really like HiGuro (Himuro x Kuroko). But really, and most sincerely, THE MORE THE MERRIER.

KnB is also awesome bc it has so many wonderful Kuroko-centric combinations. I’m more partial to shipping certain characters when they’re in a set, and man the pixiv names for these are so great :’D. Fav combos include Light Sandwich (Aomine x Kuroko x Kagami), Aibou-gumi/partner squad (Takao, Himuro, Kasamatsu, occasionally Mayuzumi -> Kuroko), Rival sandwich (Takao x Kuroko x Kise), Demon King Sandwich (Akashi x Kuroko x Himuro), Hawk ‘n Dragon Sandwich (Takao x Kuroko x Himuro), Black-Hearted Sandwich (Hanamiya x Kuroko x Imayoshi), Captain Sandwich (Nijimura x Kuroko x Akashi), Highlighter Sandwich (Akashi x Kuroko x Midorima), Returnee Sandwich (Kagami x Kuroko x Himuro), of course all their respective schools, the combinations are endless…*dreamy sigh*

*COUGHS* ANYWAY. YEAH. KNB IS POLY SHIPPING HEAVEN.

(other than Kuroko-centric? I didn’t ship him with Seirin (other than Kagami) too much, tho I certainly don’t mind it, and I very lowkey shipped Kiyoshi + Riko + Hyuuga + Izuki as a poly 4some)

Will I be drawing for the new movie? Well it certainly brought all my feels tumbling back ^ ^; But at the same time I can’t really draw for more than one fandom at a time without getting distracted, and in general there is SO MUCH CONTENT I LOVE in KnB that going on Pixiv often satisfies me, unlike the frustration/craving for something that doesn’t exist I get with YOI ^ ^;; But at the same time, now that my art skills have improved a ton, I sorta want to draw one illustration that has all my fav Kuroko husbands just all crammed in…sighhhhh we’ll see ^ ^;;

Two Toned Glossy Eyes V3

With both of the previous versions of Glossy Eyes I have uploaded a set of two colored contacts. I have finally created some for Version 3. There are 55 different color combinations, including 14 colors mixed with either white or black. The contacts also work for toddlers and can be found under face-paint.

Space Balls

Recently I’ve been playing with wet on wet watercolor techniques.  This watercolor technique works wonders with creating backgrounds, skies, water, and space.  By wetting your work area first with water, you can create organic shapes and water movement that mimic things you would find in nature.  Make sure you only wet areas you want the colors to flow with clean water.  Or your painting will become muddy and washed out.

This is step one.  Filling in the area with color.  If you experience pooling you can either:

1. Mop it up with a brush/towel/paper

2. Tilt your paper to evenly distribute the water but risk muddying colors

3. Let it dry for a darker effect but risk getting bleeding 


Experiment with different color combinations.  You can look up galaxies, nebulas, and stars online but just experimenting works even better.  

Possible color combos that worked:

1. Warm colors: reds/oranges/pinks/yellow

2. Cool colors: Blue/purple/green

3. Mix it up, if you add in just cool colors, you can add a pop/drop of red to really give it a pop.

Now we need to darken up the borders and around the organic color flows you have created.  Let it dry slightly and then mix up very dark purple with a base of blue.

Fill in edges and then go back and get high paint to water ratios of your colors (orange) and dip your brush in those areas.  Watch the color bleed into the dark purple.  Add and experiment as desired.

Check out that bleeding action!  It’s exactly what you want.  

Now take a white gel pen/white gouache/white watered down acrylic paint and tap your brush with a pencil to get nice star variations.  I even used silver calligraphy ink to add even more dimension to the stars.  Not all stars are white.  You can make them silver, gold, light blue, light yellow, cream or anything that works for you.

What I did next is scan some of my “space balls” into my computer, cut them out into perfect circles and arrange them as a print.  You can check it out below.

Experiment and enjoy!  I think this picture “tutorial” is okay but a video would definitely convey some of the technique better.  Look forward to that.

Cheers

Being outside of the Homestuck fandom and looking at fanart must be so confusing.

You look at a Homestuck character’s tag and see hundreds of different skin colors, body types, faces and hair colors combinations, all of which are supposed to be the same character despite clearly looking differently. And nobody in the fandom bats an eye.

so i’ve been seeing a lot of that ‘i need to find a lipstick that matches mads mikkelsen’s actual lip color’ post from @mean-cannibals today, and since i work as a makeup artist, i thought i’d give it a go

i took a bunch of different colors from a bunch of different pics and combined them to find one good lip color for him. here’s what i came up with:

so after searching around on the websites of a few brands that carry (IMO) the best lipsticks, here’s what i found:

which

u kno

i think is pretty appropriate

all things considered

Ilvermorny Informal House Colors

I know there are no official House colors at Ilvermorny, but I figured it would be good to have informal colors for competitive events (Quidditch, debate, etc.) They’re all different combinations on the overall school colors (blue, cranberry, gold).

cranberry + medium blue : Thunderbird
gold + cranberry : Wampus
medium blue + pale blue : Horned Serpent
pale blue + gold : Pukwudgie

NOTE: At Ilvermorny, they wear more typical sportswear (jerseys and athletic shorts, plus sweatshirt-jackets and sweatpants for the cold months) to play Quidditch. The uniforms are as follows:

Thunderbird - cranberry jersey, medium blue shorts with cranberry stripes down the sides, medium blue sweatshirt-jacket/sweatpants

Wampus - gold jersey, cranberry shorts with gold stripes down the sides, cranberry sweatshirt-jacket/sweatpants

Horned Serpent - medium blue jersey, pale blue shorts with medium blue stripes down the sides, pale blue sweatshirt-jacket/sweatpants

Pukwudgie - pale blue jersey, gold shorts with pale blue stripes down the sides, gold sweatshirt-jacket/sweatpants

Jerseys and jackets say ISQ (for Ilvermorny School Quidditch) on the right breast and the player’s surname and number on the back. The sweatpants say the House name down the pant leg.

Hi!! I was wondering if you had any advice for a newbie studyblr / bullet journalist ?

Hello there, lovely anon!! ♥ I actually joined the studyblr community pretty recently (just this month!) so I hope I can answer your question well /// !! Since I’m pretty new, there’s still quite a bit I have yet to learn myself! 


➸ advice for a new studyblr

Don’t be afraid to just start. 

  • Honestly! There’s no need to feel insecure about your posts, spreads, handwriting, picture quality, stationary - everyone in the studyblr community is so sweet and positive and helpful I begin to feel spoiled. I hope you do to!
  • Don’t feel self conscious about anything. You’re beautiful, wonderful, and perfect just the way you are. There is no better you than you!
  • Stop comparing your posts and blog to other people’s. There’s a lot for you to learn, and it won’t all come immediately. Notes, followers - it takes time. 

Reach out to other studyblrs!! 

  • Say hi, send asks, make friends! Make comments on other’s posts, send compliments or help where you can. Just being active in the community can help you get attention but also give you a wonderful time. A studyblr is to help you grow, and this is a great way to keep you motivated in doing so.
  • Along the same line, try to find ways to interact with your followers!

Tags, Tags, Tags! 

  • A lot of studyblrs will track a tag and will often reblog your content if you tag your original posts with it! You can find out what tag to put by checking out a studyblr’s page (for example, I track #studyfeather). You can make a list for yourself if that helps! (: But try not to be too overwhelming or overuse it. Maybe switch up which tracked tags you use from post to post. 
  • Make a tag for you to track! It would make sense that if you’re using tracked tags to make one for yourself to spread the love. 
  • Have a tag that is specific to your original content (mine is #featherpost)!!! It will make it nice and easy for those who come across your blog to find what you’re posting about. Having original content helps others have more interest in your blog!
  • A lot of what you are reblogging can serve as a resource for yourself. I like to reblog posts that inspire me, or have spreads I might try, masterposts, etc. If its important for you to find what you’re reblogging for later, make a tag system for yourself. For example, heres @ / studypetals’ tags page or @ / studyquill’s navigation page if you need any ideas. This is a great idea if other people begin using your blog as a resource as well. 

Take advantage of all the information you see. 

  • There are so many posts that address procrastination, time management, stress, note taking, school - anything at all - that is made available to you. It’s one thing to see the information, but it’s another to make use of it. (And don’t be afraid to share your knowledge either!) You can even make posts about trying out different advice if that helps motivate you to try something out.

Make an introductory post!

  • Help others get to know you better by putting together an introductory post! It’s never too late to make one, so don’t worry about making one if your blog has been up for a bit.
  • From what I’ve discovered, introductory posts tend to have the following information (not every one has ALL of this, it’s up to you what you’d like to add): name, age, school year, why you started a studyblr, your classes, some of your favorite studyblrs, other blogs you have (and other sites you’re on), any anything else you’d like to say/add. 
  • If you use tracked tags or tag studyblrs you love, it can help get your blog noticed! (:

Post original content!

  • I touched on this earlier, but this is so important. One of the best ways for your studyblr to succeed is posting your own work and sharing it to the community. You never know how many people will love it, be inspired by it, follow you from it, or contact you because of it.
  • Be fairly consistent in posting original content. I try to post at least once a week even though I’m pretty busy. It helps motivate me to keep my bujo and studyblr going! You can try out the 100 days of productivity or some studyblrs put together monthly study challenges you can keep up with. As an example, here’s a May Study Challenge I might try out!
  • In posting original content, make sure you link information you’re referencing to help others that much more!

Queue your posts!!

  • A great way to keep your blog active is to queue your posts. I have my posts queued at 10 each day and try to keep at least 20 posts in my queue at all times, in case a couple of busy days keep me from adding more. Some people unfollow inactive blogs - and this can be a way to prevent it. 
  • The only thing I don’t queue are original posts and asks, but it’s up to you if you decide to use the queue system or not!

➸ advice for a new bullet journalist

Real quick!! I would advise taking a look at the bullet journal’s official website to help understand the basics of bullet journaling. 

  • It’s designed to be quick and customizable way for you to keep information and tasks organized. A great way to make use of this (that I’ve found) is to make a key for each of your logs. You can see my key here. You can also search tumblr for bujo keys to see what others have come up with. If you do want to make a key, make it so that it works for you!  It can be as simple or detailed as you want, with or without signifiers, etc. If you don’t like this system, that’s just fine!

Discover different journal options and where to find them.

  • There is no set journal to use, however there are popular choices among the studyblr community: Moleskine, Leuchtturm1917, and Muji journals - but it is NOT limited to these. Working with a regular notebook works just fine as well! 
  • It’s one thing to find and purchase something online - but I like being able to find what I’m looking for in person. It saves shipping + handling costs, and I get to it immediately. And, sometimes, they can be cheaper too! I found my moleskine journal I’ve been using at Barnes and Noble, and have also seen Leuchtturm1917 journals at my school’s book store. (The temptation is real every time I walk past OTL) 

Your bullet journal is for you, so let’s make it that way.

  • A big part of having a studyblr is to help yourself in becoming more productive in learning and improving a lifestyle (or this may just be how I see it). So! There is no set format for you to use a bullet journal. It’s up to you to figure out what works best for you.
  • You can take inspiration from other people’s post to help experiment with different spreads and layouts. (Be sure to credit/tag if you do! Just to be safe.) 
  • You can find out different things that you can add to your bujo! Habit trackers, daily/weekly/monthly/yearly spreads, lists of things to keep track of (books to read, tv shows and episodes to watch, shopping/wish lists, bucket list, etc), anything you’re interested in. Depending on your interests and areas you wan’t to use a bujo to help you with, this can vary. If you want, you can test out different ideas to see if you like it or not. It will take time to find what you like, so don’t stress about it in the beginning. You’re just starting, after all!
  • There is always something for you to do, it’s just a matter of finding out what that is. If you need any help of finding something to do, feel free to message me! (As long as you don’t mind me asking a bunch of questions haha.)

Don’t be afraid to use pencil first when making your spreads.

  • Me being me, trusted myself to use pen right off the bat. Boy, do I regret that XD It got to the point where I purchased an erasable pen but I’m finding nothing can beat pencil before pen. But before you erase the pencil - make sure the pen has dried. I can’t stress this enough. I’ve gotten impatient multiple times and go ahead to erase, and instantly wished I hadn’t. You can try to find pens that prevent this from happening, but waiting is the best alternative. Something you can do is make a spread at night, and wait to erase when you wake up in the morning. You can keep your bujo open to the page you worked on for it to dry better.

You don’t need any fancy or expensive stationary.

  • Seeing the pastel highlighters, wide variety of pens and miscellaneous tools it’s easy to think you need to have it all but … you don’t have to have any of it. Especially if you are low on funds, don’t worry about getting anything new. Just work with what you have! I have been using pens I’ve owned for years and have hardly touched to see what I can do with them and am pleasantly surprised! I have a bunch of supplies that I have gotten for school that haven’t been used that I plan on finally putting to use. 
  • Your basic school supplies with notebooks, highlighters, pens and pencils, post it notes, can take you as far as you wish!

Having a difficult time coming up with a spread? Here’s some ideas! 

  • Try out different hand written fonts. This can include headers/titles and subheaders/subtitles. Try headers, banners, and dividers too! Here’s some different ideas: x | x | x | x
  • Give your spread a theme. Disney, movie, music, history, art, cartoon shows, books - anything at all! This can help with finding art to fill in blank spaces to give your spread some more interest. Here’s a post with a bunch of ideas you could use.
  • Colors! Try out different color combinations! Being an art student, I’m overly conscious of colors. They can help set a mood, evoke certain emotion, some colors work best with others (be smart when using complimentary colors), etc. Here’s a site that covers basic color theory. But … this is me being nerdy. This can take quite a bit of thought - but you honestly don’t have to (: !! It’s best if you stick to one or two colors within a page not to overwhelm what others are seeing, especially if you’re wanting to keep things minimal. If you want me to go deeper into this, and talk more about contrast and whatnot … I can make a separate post as not to clutter this one ♥
  • Make goals for yourself! This can be included in a habit tracker, but doesn’t need to be. They can be as small as going on a 20 minute walk each day during this week, being sure to stay hydrated, doing something with a family member or friend, completing or starting a big project or assignment, etc. 
  • Find some quotes and add them! Here’s some quote masterposts I’ve come across: x | x | x | x

When taking pictures, be conscious of lighting.

  • The best kind of lighting is natural lighting. Taking pictures outside (or inside) during the day will help your image quality! I know before I said picture quality doesn’t matter much, but this can be a simple and easy way to help improve your posts. 
  • If natural lighting isn’t helping you the way you want, you can take a look at different apps with photo editing capabilities or filters. I have a horrible app finding ability, and just use Photoshop (you can get PS CS2 for free here) or Clip Studio Paint to edit my photos. My favorite tool to use is the tone curve. However you can see this post to look at other options, like apps (it also links to other posts you can look at)!

Have a good time!

  • Honestly, I feel this is what it boils down to. As long as you are enjoying what you’re doing and continue to have a passion for studyblr related content, you’ll succeed. Don’t stress about it and take one post at a time.

I’ll start putting together a post of how I started my studyblr in case that may help as well! Thank you for asking, anon! Hopefully this helps, and that I was able to cover everything! T o T Sorry I kinda went on a bit of a tangent in some areas.

Requested by @magmasteelix

Unlike the Muks in Kanto, Alolan form Muk is strikingly colorful. Alolan Muk looks like a colorful oil slick. Soap, petrol, grease, and other oily substances often look like colorful rainbows. But why? 

Oil is both reflective and refractive of light. When light hits it, some of the light bounces off the surface and directly to your eye. The rest of the light passes through the oil, and then bounces off of whatever surface is beneath the oil (water, the road, Muk’s body) before going to your eye. Passing through the oil bends the light a little bit. It’s a lot easier to walk through air than through water: you move slower when you’re in a swimming pool. Light is the same way, it slows down in water and oil, which causes it to bend.

Because of this effect, you can think of it as one beam of light going to the oil, and two beams of light coming off of it: one from the surface reflection, and the one that passed through the oil.

We don’t see two different beams leaving the oil, of course: the two beams combine together to create a new light beam altogether, through interference. Interference can make light stronger or weaker, depending on how the waves add together.

White light, of course, actually contains all of the colors of the rainbow. When light refracts and reflects off of the oil, different colors are going to combine through interference. Depending on the depth of the oil slick in different places, red might combine with red to create a really strong red, and so on. This constructive interference creates the rainbows in oil.

This is how Alolan Muk is so colorful: the outside of its body is coated in a layer of fatty oil, which interacts with the light in this way to make it colorful.

Alolan Muk’s body is covered in a layer of fatty oil. Some light reflects off of the oil, and some light passes through it, causing constructive interference that appears as a rainbow.

Writing Large Casts of Characters

Okay, so it came to my attention recently that not all writers write with gigantuan casts of characters like I do. So I thought I’d share my experiences with this kind of writing and hopefully help some people out?

Quick summary: I’ve got three different stories that are my main three works. My main novel is pretty much finalized at 96K words, a sci-fi story with eight main characters (a crazy scientist and her daughter are the two real mains, but all the other characters play their roles as well). 
I have a second story that I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2016 that I have since not polished like at all that’s at 52K. I have managed my characters a bit better this time, but there’s still lots: main hero named Ash, her partner Zack, Satan, and the head of T.R.E.E. Plus, you know…various demon characters. It may not sound like a lot, but I have planned this to be a seven book series so I will be working with all them a lot
Finally, I have a story that follows Emma Walker as she travels the USA on a one-woman Humans of New York-esque adventure. That means she talks to people and listens to their stories so she can tell them on her blog. So, you see, I have to create a significant amount of characters for her to talk to; the story is kind of at a standstill right now around 40K.

The key to keeping all your characters straight is, of course, making them all unique. For my sci-fi story, each character has a different superpower. In my NaNo project, half the characters are demons, skeletons, etc. Stories Told For Free gives every character some sort of trait that their story goes off of (family members, personal fears, freckles). 

But what I want to recommend to you is that you make your characters unique to the reader. As the writer, you have the ability to go back and fact-check and look back to see what you wrote. Do it shamelessly; consistency is important. 
But making them unique to your reader takes a bit more thinking. You have to think of things from a reader standpoint. What will make readers go, “Oh, yeah, that guy, I remember that guy.” ?

A few things:
Their relationship to the other characters / your main. If there is a side character never has a word of dialogue but your main’s entire internal dialogue whenever they’re around is, That kid bullied me in fifth grade, I haven’t talked to them in six years, I still remember how they made me cry on the first day of school then we are going to remember them.
Physical features. An oldie but a goodie. One of my characters in the sci-fi novel has burn scars up and down his arms; he controls fire. Another (a telekinetic) has long, thin fingers. See, their powers aren’t enough–although they certainly help. You have to be sure to develop your characters fully, and physical features are part of that.
Accents and catchphrases. I’ve just recently been working on finetuning my dialogue, and let me tell you: it makes a WORLD of difference in improving your narration. Apostrophes and repetition are really tiny details, but it can really capture your reader’s attention and spark memories.
Their impact on your characters / your main. The people that Emma Walker talks to always leave some sort of impact on her, they leave some memory of themselves in her mind. If written correctly, the memories I give my character will be the same memories that stick in my reader’s mind.
Objects that your reader can associate with that character. One of my sci-fi characters fights with a kitchen knife. Random characters in Stories Told for Free may have a charm bracelet, or a meaningful tattoo. Each demon in my NaNo project has a different combination of skin color and scale color. 

These are just a few ways that you can further develop your individual characters if you are writing a ton of them. I wish you all the luck in the world, and I hope this helped! Happy writing.

Heathers: JD [ENTP]

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): "Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs, darling.“ Big ideas? That’s JD. He has nothing but ideas and sees the untapped potential of other people, though it is often used to serve his own goals. He sees Veronica’s unhappiness with her friends and her high school life and exploits that, leading to their “Bonnie and Clyde days”. After Heather Chandler’s death, he sizes up the two remaining Heathers and goes for the potential he sees in Heather Duke, exploiting and playing upon her desire to be the new Heather Chandler. His ideas and goals become more lofty and grandiose as the movie progresses, going from offing Heather Chandler to blowing up the entire school and everyone in it - an idea that strikes him when his father shows him a demolition video. His big idea is that “The only place different social types can genuinely get along with each other is in heaven.”

Introverted Thinking (Ti): JD’s mind is extremely analytical. He often speaks in metaphors and uses them to convey his philosophies on certain matters. People will look at the ashes of Westerburg and say, “Now there’s a school that self-destructed, not because society didn’t care, but because the school was society.” Now that’s deep.“  He prides himself in picking apart constructs, ideas, and people and he’s very good at it. He can think his way out of situations, such as the story to Veronica regarding the “Ich Luge” bullets when Veronica says she doesn’t take German. Or when he proposes, “What if this was like a suicide thing?” after the death of Heather Chandler.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe):  JD can be quite charming, knowing how to appeal to the emotions of Veronica, Martha, and Heather Duke. He’s good at reading people and is absolutely thrilled by the reactions of the school over the death of Heather Chandler, unlike Veronica who seems uncomfortable and points out the phoniness of people’s responses when being interviewed. He cracks jokes at Kurt and Ram’s funeral. When he feels as though the school “does not need mushy togetherness. It needs a strong leader”, he sets Heather Duke on the crash course to becoming the new “leader”. Unlike Veronica, JD has no real internal moral code. He tells Veronica that “Football season is over, Veronica. Kurt and Ram had nothing left to offer the school except date rapes and AIDS jokes.” and infers that she really did want them dead after they spread rumors about an alleged sexual tryst with her. When Veronica no longer becomes useful to him, he plans on killing her. “I loved you! Of course, I was coming up here to kill you…" The only way she survives in the end is because she thwarts his plan, showing her that she has “strength” and that he underestimated her which he accepts before ending his own life outside of the school.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Seven schools in seven states and the only thing different is my locker combination.“ JD’s past experiences color how he sees people and society as a whole. To him, everything is stagnant. He doesn’t care much for details when Veronica points out that Heather Chandler would never use the word "myriad” in her suicide note as she got it wrong on a vocab test but quickly asserts “That only proves my point more. The word is a badge for her failures at school."  He’s in tune with social dynamics of the school as soon as he steps in the front door but that doesn’t mean he cares much for them. His past resentment for how things "are” is what fuels his motivations. He makes a lot of jabs at “society” as a whole. 

Celica wig progress ~ combining two shades of wig fibers into one.

Blending wig colors is something I do with most of my cosplay wigs. Whenever I need to add wefts to a wig, I pick a neighboring hue instead of the exact color of my base wig. This creates the effect of highlights/lowlights for a more “natural” look, even in colors that aren’t natural on any human! This can also help adjust the overall color of your wig when you can’t find the *exact* shade you are looking for.

For this project I’m using a base wig from @ardawigs in Auburn with Coral wefts sewn in. Arda already does a great job of providing colors that are a combination of different shades, but I like to take it one step further.

Danaia’s Bedroom by SaudadeSims

This bedroom set is for my sweet deelitefulsimmer! It was supposed to be her birthday gift, but real life took over and I wasn’t able to finish it in time (her birthday was on September 12th). Danaia is Dee’s first name, and I love it, so I named her set Danaia instead of Dee :)

Happy Birthday, Danaia! I love you! So sorry this was late!

All the new meshes have the correct LODs and shadow meshes. All have custom thumbnails.

Set includes:

Headboard: (538 polys) 380 simoleons, 6 swatches

Chair: (3980 polys) 380 simoleons, 36 and 24 swatches

Bench: (2232 polys) 380 simoleons, 36 and 24 swatches

Dresser: (2152 polys) 380 simoleons, 6 swatches

Lamp: (2334 polys) 138 simoleons, 9 swatches

Mirror: (1486 polys) 1380 simoleons, 5 swatches

Cat Wall Deco: (1902 polys) 138 simoleons, 5 swatches

Star Wall Deco: (674 polys) 138 simoleons, 5 swatches

Vase 1: (680 polys) 38 simoleons, 9 swatches

Vase 2: (1240 polys) 38 simoleons, 9 swatches

Vase 3: (388 polys) 38 simoleons, 9 swatches

Recolors of my Vienna Bed Blanket: (2958 polys) 300 simoleons, 10 swatches

Recolors of my Vienna Bed Pillows: (2902 polys) 100 simoleons, 10 swatches


The headboard has 8 slots, but I couldn’t get the lamp to sit on any of them, maybe the mesh is too narrow? I just use wall lights behind the headboard, it looks cooler anyway :)

I split the bench and the chair up into two packages apiece because 60 swatches is too many, I think. So you can choose colors (6 different colors combined with each wood texture) or neutrals (4 different colors combined with each wood texture) or you can have both, there’ll just be two different entries in the catalog. 

Some of these items have relatively high poly counts. Sorry about that :( If you run on low settings or if your computer is slow I’d be careful with the chair especially. The chair, the lamp, and the cat wall deco are higher poly than recommended. Caveat Emptor!
