especially when it comes to coloring

supercian  asked:

I kind of self project on Hunk a lot and I wanted to share a fun headcanon I have! Since Shiro is the eyeliner guy and Lance is the skin care guy I think it would be cool if Hunk was the lipstick guy, especially with really wild colors like purples, blues, black, bright pink, reds, etc. He had a HUGE collection of lipstick that he had to leave behind when they fled to space and every time he thinks about he's CRUSHED. Now he's always lowkey scouting space malls and bazaars for alien lipstick!

omggggg okay but IMAGINE everyone at the space mall and they’re like “……where’s Hunk” and he comes back with his (beautifully massive) arm full of lines of lipstick because ofc if ur a lipstick junkie, you’re gonna do that to e v e r y shade of lipstick in Sephora to look at how the colors look on your skin, and Lance and Shiro are like “👀👀👀👀👀👀 WHERE 👀👀👀👀👀 DID YOU GO 👀👀👀👀👀”

And the last two, Yellow Diamond and Holly Blue Agate! Yellow was…super difficult due to her limited palette but she was a fun challenge, especially making me work in the opposite color spectrum I usually go towards for shading when it comes to yellow! Going the green direction I feel makes her seem more intimidating and unfriendly, compared to if I went to the orange side.

Also I fucking love Holly Blue, she’s a real dick and I hope we see more of her and her clicky-clack boots soon enough. Hope you guys like!

important things for new or young digital artists to remember:

  • don’t shade colors with black
  • don’t overuse the airbrush tool, especially when it comes to shading

  • layers have different settings, explore them!

  • if your lines are wiggly when you draw, check your brush stability settings
  • if you find your lineart is looking too stiff/not like your sketch, try cleaning up the sketch instead of lining it. it helps keep fluidity and the feel of your original drawing

  • crop your pictures, don’t leave a ton of empty space unless you add some kind of background
  • make sure your canvas is set to at least 300dpi 
  • draw on a large canvas ( i draw on a 3000x3000px canvas) it will be easier to line your work and everything will look much smoother even if you shrink it down
  • .jpeg files save space, but this file type may compress your art and sacrifice quality. when I post art I always use .png
Disney films that are *actually* underrated

Treasure Plant

If you already know me, you could probably guess that this would be on the list considering I never shut up about it.

This film flopped at the box office, but I’m honestly not sure why? It has absolutely gorgeous animation. Like, they could have gone with a palette of grays and blues like most scifi films do, but Treasure Planet actually has a large color palette, especially when it comes to the scenery. It shows off all the beautiful colors of space instead of making everything chrome against a dark backdrop. There are likable characters, including a an anti-hero, disabled pirate, a female Naval Captain that’s a total no-nonsense badass, and a sulky teenager. Arguably one of the darkest films Disney has done in the last twenty years. Disabled main character with only one eye, one arm, and one leg. Literally all of the character designs are gorgeous. The plot is a little boring at times, but it’s fairly easy to get lost in the world that’s been created.

Plus, we get visuals like this!

Brother Bear

Brother Bear was another box office flop but this one also had rather negative reviews. The early 2000′s was not kind to Disney animation. 

Yes, it does have a transformation plot, which I know is kind of iffy depending on the person, but overall it’s a great film. The music is amazing, bless Phil Collins signing onto another Disney project. The characters are great, I don’t think there were any I didn’t like except maybe the moose (because as an adult I don’t find them as funny as I did as a child, but I don’t really dislike them either). The relationship between the brothers was amazingly done. Usually when people want to talk about animated sibling relationships, they mention Lilo and Stitch, which is also great, but I really like how the brothers interact in Brother bear. They’re all closer in age (which is like my sister and me, so I can connect with it more), and I think that worked well when they added in the anger and grief and self-blame in the story.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire

There’s not really much I can say about this one, because truthfully I’ve only seen it a handful of times. Something about it kind of freaked me out as a child (I think it was that giant leviathan creature that attacked their submarine thing????), and I only recently found my old VHS player and haven’t had the time to watch it again.

Atlantis has it all. A beautiful world. Well-rounded, interesting characters. A romance that didn’t feel ridiculously forced. The voice talents of Michael J. Fox, Cree Summer, and Leonard Nimoy. A balances of a more adult plotline, while still retaining a kid friendly atmosphere.

Unfortunately, it does lack some coherency in the plot, and because of it’s fast-paced nature, there isn’t a lot of time for character development. The creators also borrowed a lot of elements from the Ghibli film castle in the Sky, but ultimately it’s still a great film visually speaking.

(PS: it was hard to pick a screencap that shows how visually stunning this film is. So much blue.)

The Black Cauldron

Honestly, The Black Cauldron is one of my favorite Disney films, but I can recognize that it has a lot of problems story wise. As in, they tried to stick the contents of two full length novels into an 80 minute film. Yeah, it didn’t work. The characters are interesting, albeit under-developed, visually it’s very beautiful, and it has just the right amount of creepy to give 5 year old me nightmares as a child (the Horned King was a brilliant concept). The author of the book series the Chronicles of Prydain, which the film is based on, found the film enjoyable on its own, but admitted it didn’t follow the books well. It was also another box office flop, making $21.3 million in revenue, which was less than half of the budget to make the film. This is the film that Disney pretends they didn’t make and is frequently referred to as the “worst Disney film” however we all know that that right belongs to films like Home on the Range, Chicken Little, and Mars Needs Moms.

There is speculation that Disney has plans to make a live action series based on the original books, so fingers crossed!

Robin Hood

It’s underrated, but I can kind of tell why. Everyone already knows the story of Robin Hood, because there’s at least ten different films and TV series about the guy. He’s been on OUaT, and there was a parody movie with Cary Elwes!

The animation is, decent, but not great, but the budged was only 5 million, so??? Meaning that a lot of the characters action were redrawn from previous films such as The Jungle Book and Aristocats. However, this was pretty common in old Disney films because the animators were paid for shit and it’s not plagiarism if you’re ripping off yourself. It is a little sloppy though.

Either way, it’s still a decent film. The songs were fun and had a delightfully folk sound to them, if you’re into that! The characters are pretty cute, the story is straight forward, and there’s not actually anything to really dislike about the film. It’s just a silly comedy that has it’s ups and downs.

Dinosaur

I don’t even know what to say about this film other than it’s gorgeous and no one ever talks about it. Like, this is the first true Disney film that relies entirely on CGI. No Pixar involvement. Just Disney and CGI. This is the most successful film of 2000 and I’ve never heard people talk about it even though it has great characters, an interesting story, and great visuals.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

While I personally don’t believe Hunchback is all that underrated (I usually see it in just about every top 10 or 20 list), it’s still a great film that deserves more praise than it gets.

Hunchback is beautiful, inspiring, dark, has excellent morals, amazing characters amazing music.It’s basically the complete package of everything you could want in a Disney film and it’s enjoyable for all ages.

The only thing I didn’t like about this film was the gargoyles and it’s kind of implied that they’re more like imaginary friends instead of real creatures, so they get a pass.

Headcanon that people with psychic powers tend to have their physical appearances altered slightly when their powers come out as a result of their emotions

For Teru, in times of extreme emotions his teeth grow large and sharp. They’re a real inconvenience for him, and this just adds frustration onto whatever emotion brought them on, thus making them even harder to get rid of.

For Mob, his powers change the color of his eyes from deep brown to sharp red. This can be pretty disconcerting for people who don’t know about this beforehand.

For Ritsu, his emotions shape his hair. Especially when distressed, his hair tends to stand up on end, spiking upwards. He doesn’t seem to mind, but sometimes he finds himself needing to comb it back down or use some sort of hairgel to get it to cooperate.

Why can’t I kin/id outside my race if I am white?

Because race is an integral part of a person’s identity, especially if they are nonwhite. It influences each and every aspect of their life.

By saying you’re kin with/ID as a character who is a person of color when you are white yourself, you are implying that you can separate characters from their race, that all our lived experiences and struggles that come with being a particular race can be dismissed as immaterial without changing who we are. This is racist. You are erasing our experiences with race and appropriating our identity without ever having to experience all the pain that comes with it.

The “it’s racist to kin outside your race” thing was started by white people pretending to be Japanese.

Believe it or not, we are capable of finding things racist, independent of white influence. Further, this argument is utterly nonsensical - how is white people fucking up while pretending to be Japanese somehow license for more white people to continue to do so?

My friend is a person of color and they told me it’s okay to kin outside my race.

First of all, you need to stop using your nonwhite friends to defend yourself against accusations of racism. You are essentially using a restyled version of the “I have nonwhite friends, I can’t be racist” argument.

Secondly, you have no way of knowing whether your friend actually thinks it’s okay or whether they are merely afraid of calling you out because they worry that you will either not listen to them, accuse them of overreacting or cut them off.

Finally, just because your token friend of color has sanctioned your racism doesn’t make it any less racist.

I’m a person of color and I don’t think it’s bad for white people to kin outside their race.

People of color are not a monolith. You’re entitled to your opinion. That doesn’t change the fact that other nonwhite people are being harmed by this sort of racist behavior.

What if I call them synpaths instead of kins?

No. Doing so is making no change in your racist behavior; it is merely using a change in terms to attempt to placate those who have called you out.

What if I’ve put up a disclaimer on my kin/id page saying that I don’t claim the race of the character I kin with/id as?

That is simply insulting. You are basically saying “you don’t see color”, implying that the race of the character is immaterial and easily separable from the character. It is not.

What about reincarnation kin?

They still claim to be the nonwhite character. This is inexcusable regardless of how you try to explain it away. You cannot claim a character’s experiences as “your past lives” when their past lives have experience with racism you cannot possibly understand.

I am not hurting anyone by being kin/id outside my race, it’s a simple coping mechanism!

You coping mechanisms are not beyond reproach just because you’re mentally ill, especially when they function at the expense of marginalized people.

You are in fact hurting people of color -especially those of us who are mentally ill and use kin to cope. This is compounded by the fact that we are doubly marginalized by racism and ableism and are thus more likely to go undiagnosed/misdiagnosed/have poor access to mental health care. We already have extremely limited representation in media, and it is entitled of you to lay claim to what few characters we have to, when there are countless white characters you have to chose from.

In addition, those of you going by nonwhite names - like white anime kins - add to the racism by claiming names that nonwhite (in this case Asian) people are discriminated for - in education and employment. It is beyond entitled for you as a white person to claim names from cultures when they’ve been stripped from us by white society.

I am delusional/psychotic and I cannot help my kins, asking me to do so is ableist.

Before you call us ableist, consider that white people are not the only ones who deal with mental illness. Then imagine what it is like to live with intersecting marginalization of racism and ableism, especially when there are people like you who blatantly abuse their white privilege.

If your delusions actively harm others, you cannot continue to excuse them. If you are capable of recognizing your behavior as delusional, you have the ability to make efforts towards changing your behavior. We say this as people who are delusional ourselves. It is not easy, but fighting racism was never going to be easy to begin with.

What can I do to change?

Stop going by ethnic kin names. Take the characters off your kin page. Try to distance yourself from the character. Focus on other kins - as a white person, you’re guaranteed to have - or find - plenty of others.

As for the future, you cannot help which characters you get kin feelings for, but you can help what you do with them. You can also educate yourself to rid yourself of the subconscious idea that race is a separable trait from our experiences, so you eventually see nonwhite characters as off limits.

I don’t care about this/I’m going to continue to kin outside my race.

Then please do not pretend to care about racism. It’s extremely exhausting and disheartening for us to broach this subject with white people who claim to be allies, only to have them continue with their behavior and shut us out because they care about maintaining their image as Good Whites than they do about actually changing their racist behavior. You cannot claim to be an ally when you are only anti-racist as long as it’s convenient/doesn’t require you to change your behavior.

Winter is (slowly) ending... kids are going on Spring Break soon... seems only fitting for the blog to take a vacation, too!

Somewhere sunny and tropical, perhaps? With everything you’d want in such a locale, like–

–magical credits-dissolving hummingbirds? Especially ones that–

–teleport into frame, because Carl, unsurprisingly, couldn’t be bothered to bring ‘em in more smoothly?

Ted the Animator: “…would it really have taken that much more effort to add one extra frame where the beak’s just slightly seen?”

Carl the Animator: “Hey, if Warner Brothers wants accurate bird animations, they should’ve hired an orthodontist.”

Ted the Animator: “…ornithologist?”

Carl the Animator: “Yeah, that.”

Why, it’ll be grand – we’ll get to see so much splendorous wildlife, such as parrots!

They come in every manner of majestic color… except for when Carl draws them, and they’re–

–just medium green with a teensy bit of purple.

Ted the Animator: “Parrots can be practically any color, in gorgeous, elaborate patterns… so why on earth did you go with that?

Carl the Animator: “Two reasons! First, I’d need to color in each one, and animate ‘em as they flap, and would take all day.”

Ted the Animator: “…it’s computer animation, Carl. Just color one, define the loop on the model, and copy-paste for the rest.”

Carl the Animator: “Oh! Oh. That would have been smart.”

Ted the Animator: “Yes. Are you going to fix them now?”

Carl the Animator: “Nah, and that brings me to reason two.”

Ted the Animator: “…which is?

Carl the Animator: “I like ‘em better this way.”

Ted the Animator: *facepalm*

Get ready, folks… this is gonna be quite an adventure.

I haven’t been drawing Enjolras for so long time it physically hurts. I’ve tried to experiment with the angle and colors, and… you can see the result. Anyway, I enjoy his facial expression here, and colors, I suppose, emphasize a mood. 

I’ve bought myself a english version ot the Les Mis book (here it’s pretty rare). It’s hard to read due to the difficulty of the language (and the fact that my English needs an upgrade) but I’m facinated by the beauty and poetry some of the figures of speech can provide. Especially when it comes to comparison. I hope to use as much quotes from the english version as from the russian one. And life for all around me who’s not Les Mis fan will be even more unbearable) 

anonymous asked:

do u have any good links/posts on how to fan out over PoC characters/ships without it becoming fetishization? (as a white/female fan). i checked out FAQ and didn't see anything but sorry if i'm missing something obvious

Hi! I know there are some circulating, but right now the only one I can find is only about latinxs. I could give you some ‘tips’, though:

  •  Avoid using language that fetishizes PoC. Don’t call your fave latino your papi, don’t compare dark skinned people (especially black people) to food, etc.
  • Ask yourself why you’re “fanning out” over them. Is it because you find them exotic? Does your fascination come from their race/culture? For ships, are you applying stereotypes to the character(s) of color? Are you hypersexualising or desexualising them? 
  • Don’t focus only on their ‘ethnic’ features when praising them. Yes, they are beautiful, and you can appreciate them, but if you fixate on them then you’re fetishizing them. This includes, in the case of “foreign” celebs, fetishizising their language. I die inside a little every time I see a gringx ‘swooning’ when Diego Luna speaks Spanish, or when I see k-pop fans making fun of their idols’ ~funny words~ in korean. 
  • Please, praise the characters of color, call them beautiful, handsome, pretty, georgeous, but don’t be over the top (especially, as I said in the last point, with their ethnic features) and be mindful of the way you do it. Why are white women beautiful angels who must be protected, but you want brown women to ‘walk all over you’ and ‘kick your ass’?
  • Again, this might sound like it’s not that important but please don’t be over the top. It’s so cringeworthy, fake, and obvious when a white fan’s ‘fangirling’ over a character/person of color and they just want ‘ally points’ for liking said person. Just. Don’t do that. Talk about them, express your love for them, but be sincere.
  • And if someone (read: a person of the same race as the character you ‘like’) calls you out on something, apologise and correct your behavior.

I think that basically covers it, but anyone feel free to add to the list!

The BCBG Max Azria Marie Skirt

I love pleats. I love how they feel, how they flow and undulate like a living thing when you move. I love it especially when it comes in amazing color-blocked foil chiffon that shimmers and reflects between bronze, silver, rose-gold..

Strange thing about the skirt is it looks dark and - dare I say - a little weird when you lay it out. It only “comes alive” and catches the light in its folds when you wear it.

This time of year, many parts of Asia are in preparation for the Spring festival; it’s our holiday season. And it’s tradition to arm ourselves with an arsenal of new clothes (and for me, great makeup) for luck and prosperity in the new year.

So I have my metallic Marie skirt, Burberry Lip Velvets (Fawn, Military Red and Black Cherry), clutch-size Tom Ford Lips & Boys lippies for tucking into crowded purses (Leonardo is a fave), MAC’s surprisingly good Chinese New Year “Year of the Rooster” eyeshadow x 9 palette, and Dame blush. 

Not to forget a soothing hydrating mist from SK-II when the weather here turns stinking hot.

My Artistic Vision

Submitted by: http://thefeelofcacoethes.tumblr.com/

Length: Short

One of my favourite things to do is create public street art pieces. I work by the cover of darkness, never leaving my art in the same place twice. Sadly, my work is short lived, but I love the creativity, the reactions of the public, and especially the creation process!

When creating public art pieces the most important detail is the pop. The attention grabber, the head turner, the hook that drags people in with cameras and gaping mouths. Tonight I was working with a darker base than usual, to make sure my colors explode! Here’s a tip from a pro: A darker base with tones of orange, red, and yellow will look spectacular! But before the paint comes a few cosmetic details.

First, I drill a few holes into the base, and insert wooden dowels I’ve covered in glow paint and glitter. Not the most professional of mediums, but the end product will still be stunning. Next, I make a few cuts in the base, and insert colored pieces of glass I got cheap from a glass blowing studio. Bargains are an artist’s best friend, after all! After that, I string rows of fairy lights across the dowels, and into the cuts, to give a glowing, whimsical feeling. Next is my absolute favourite part: The painting!

I start out with a bright neon orange, drawing tongues fire and rivers of marigolds. Next comes a light yellow, warm sand and gold jewelry. Blood red is final, fiery and bright, with mountains of magma and fire truck feathers. Red is the easiest of colors, since I can make it from the leftover pieces of my previous art. Waste not want not, am I right?

I stand back, and survey my work. The piece glows in the rising sun, reflecting the lava-like colors of the sky. I’m so proud of this piece, it’s one of my best so far. But now I must go, so my art will remain an anonymous beauty for the public to gawk at. Perhaps I will see it in a newspaper! I don’t want to brag, but my work is featured in papers a lot . Some even in the front page! Though, I do wish the media would stop calling my work “desecrated corpses” and “gruesome murders committed over night”. 

Before I leave, I lean down and rip off the tape I placed over my base’s mouth. His teeth are colored bright pink, courtesy of yours truly. I thought it would be it nice touch. Too bad I had to put the tape on, because the pink is smudged a bit from his attempts to scream. Oh well! He stopped screaming now, and my artistic vision still survives. 

I turn to leave, but a whimper stops me. A young woman stands across the street from me, her hand over her mouth and tears streaming down her face. Good thing I decided to pack more paint today.

It’s so hard, being an anonymous street artist. No one seems to understand my vision.

When I was 18 I read my first full comic series: Young Avengers V.2 and something changed inside me. I don’t know how to explain it. In interviews, @kierongillen used to describe the story’s theme as a metaphor to growing up, to that time in your life when you’re entering college and your life changes in a way that is not often explored in fiction. This is exactly what it was for me.

First of all, entering a communications environment meant constantly coming into contact with people who’d read more books and watched more movies than me, people who prided themselves on their knowledge of obscure films and independent “”“deeper”“” creators. I felt so lost. I have always loved creating fiction, especially fantasy and science fiction, all things that had no place within an elitist artistic community. And yet, here was this book that wasn’t afraid of being colorful and fun and pop, without being any less meaningful. It was a breath of fresh air. It was a beacon of hope.

Not only that, but every single theme in it resonated deeply within me. Adults not understanding you no matter how hard they or you try. Friends leaving and friends coming together. Searching yourself across multiple possible futures. Wishing you were better. Having to accept you are yourself and that is good enough. Wanting to change and grow, and having no choice but to do that because you’re suddenly thrown into an adult world when five minutes earlier you were being treated like a child. Suddenly, you realize your whole future is in your hands and it’s terrifying and exciting.

Most of all, America Chavez resonated with me. Here was a Latina where I was not expecting to find her. A strong woman self assured in her identity, strong and caring. She had taken a leap of faith in the search for her identity and she has fought to make it work. She was everything I aspired to be and since then I have followed her journey through Marvel while I follow my own.

This is my last semester of college and I’m about to go abroad to get a Master’s degree. I’ll be on my own for the very first time. I’ll be starting classes in a new college, in a new city, in a new country where my identity as a Latina will be a new thing for the first time (as opposed to living in a Latin America country). I am excited and terrified of this new journey of self discovery I will be jumping into.

This year, too, thanks to Gabby Rivera, America Chavez will go to college. She will, like me, start new classes, a new life, new experiences and a new search for her identity. The timing couldn’t have been better. I can’t believe I will get the chance to have her as my companion through the next adventure in my life. I am so grateful.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, representation matters. Comics matter. Stories matter. To me, at least, they have meant everything. I don’t know if I could have gotten through life this past four years without them. Maybe, but the ride wouldn’t have been this good. So thank you.

Working on the 3 main dungeon tilesets that I have so far. Others are coming but I’m focusing on getting these ready for Greenlight and Beta/Early Access. I’m calling the main Dungeon one (Right) ready but the others still need some heavy tweaking, especially when it comes to colors (too dark or bright etc).

I hope you guys are liking the project so far. If you are interested in seeing more experimental and or work in progress bits, follow me on my Twitter where I’m a lot more active. Thanks!

Okay but imagine the amount of magical innovation that occurred by magical folks who weren’t allowed to exist in the mainstream of magical culture, hidden away, until the pureblood hierarchy was finally squashed for good.
Dozens of different spells being created in secret by wizards of color for the same purposes, unable to be taught in schools until recently, then all of them being melded and combined with each other when communities are able to come out into the open. Native languages twisting together, sometimes with a sprinkling of latin or greek or english, creating spells even more powerful and unique than the ones they were forbidden from learning, which drove them to innovate in the first place.
Disabled wizards, shut away by their families, brewing stronger and more accurate potions and treatments, passed down through the generations in many cases especially if the disability has a genetic basis, each successive attempt improving on the last, until society finally catches up and folks with disabilities are allowed to attend school and live their lives as they wish.
Students, showing up to Hogwarts in their second, third, fourth years, their earlier ones made nonexistent by prejudiced policies or pure ignorance on the part of their caregivers, showing up already knowing tricks and and methods passed down by their parents, relatives and small, hidden communities, and blowing everyone’s expectations out of the water!

A little bit of a PSA!

Hey folks! I’ve been getting a LOT of messages lately from people asking some variation of: “I’m white but I want to cosplay a POC character, do you think it’s okay to whitewash/brownface?” Or the alternative: “I’m white and want to cosplay this POC character, but I’m afraid of being harassed; what should I do?”

I’m not sure what caused this influx of racial questions, but I’d like to state the following:

1. I am not going to give you “permission” or validate your cosplay choices under any circumstances. Your cosplay choices are your own; I can’t make decisions for you, especially because it’s a decision that involves your time, money, effort – and in this case, your comfort and safety.

2. Yes, I’m half-Armenian, as some of you just realized. That doesn’t give me the right to speak for all cosplayers of color and decide what is “okay” when it comes to this topic. I’m not an authority on racial issues within our community and my personal views shouldn’t be dictating your cosplay choices in the first place. Especially because I’m half-Russian, too, and benefit from privilege that goes along with passing as 100% white. I don’t experience racism in daily life so it really isn’t my place to decide what is right/wrong on this topic. I don’t have that authority.

3. I have stated my views on this topic many times and they have not changed. When it comes down to it: if an action of yours could potentially hurt someone else based on their race, you need to decide if dressing up as a cartoon is worth that to you. Alternatively, if you believe the feelings of others shouldn’t dictate your actions, you need to decide if you can handle any potential backlash from those who are upset by your actions… which, in the current state of this community, is extremely likely to happen – and that’s unfortunate because harassment is never okay, but it’s sadly something you do have to prepare yourself to experience if you do something that upsets a large portion of people. Again, these are not decisions I can make for you.

Ultimately the only advice I can give you in this scenario is to think critically, consider alternative perspectives, and determine what you can and can’t handle in terms of consequences. Yes, part of me believes “Cosplay whatever you want!” but a greater part of me believes “Do no harm unto others.” Your personal views and rules may be different, so again: you need to decide for yourself. Messaging me for permission/advice isn’t going to do that for you.

Sorry for the serious soap box time! Again, I’m not sure what caused all these questions suddenly, but I wanted to address them all at once without posting them publicly to protect those non-anonymous individuals from harassment. I hope this answers some of your concerns!

Ya know something I’ve never come to understand? How people say brown eyes are the most boring eyes. To me brown eyes are the best eyes. Brown eyes do things others cannot. Especially if you fall in love with them. They have the ability to turn blue if and when time decides it’s time to change. The can go from the darkest shades of brown they almost look black, to the most beautiful color of gold you will ever have pleasure of staring at. Because lets face it, no one ever just looks at brown eyes. You’re staring at a color that will make even the heaviest bricks of gold seem absolutely worthless. Thats what makes brown eyes so special, there are millions of people with the same shades as you. And yet you can get someone to stare at them the way people who have tattoos look at the ink on their skin. They look at them as if it’s your shade of brown they would want to stare at for the rest of their lives. So yeah brown eyes aren’t boring. They might not be the only color out there. But they sure as hell aren’t boring.

@chyogi - I s2g SO FREAKING SOFT AND SMOOTH AND HD KCBBKVCL ♡ Your gifs always have such a pastel and aesthetically pleasing look to them. ALSO, not only does she make VIXX gifs, but BTS ones too! Always refreshing to see a diff group with the same beautiful PSDs on them! [x]

@royalbins - Oh my gosh… I love this girl’s gifs so much. SERIOUSLY LOOK AT HOW SMOOTH THIS IS?? & ofc her coloring always on point. ♡ Not even sure what else to say other than an amazing gif-maker like the rest on this list!! (I absolutely adore this gifset just letting you know ;D) [x]

@kenbinnie - I just recently started following this person because of a certain beautiful Jaehwan gifset they made….IT’S SO PRETTY AND…ofc soft haha ;D & their text is adorable as well~ ♡ [x]

@kongsook - ANOTHER SOFTIE~ ♡ Similar to in the gif, I could just eat their gifsets up! They’re always extremely pretty;; pastel but at the same time…vibrant? Idek how to describe, I just love them!! [x]

♡ Now I’ll talk about the fast gif-makers (the ones that end up giffing new VIXX content the quickest) ♡

@nxnight - I’M NOT SURE HOW BERNICE DOES IT, BUT SHE’S ALWAYS FIRST TO HAKYEON GIF MAKING & HAKYEON POSTS IN GENERAL. She writes the cutest captions too ♡ Even though she’s fast, her gifs turn out perfect 100% of the time!! I hope everyone can appreciate her gifs as much as I do ;D (had to use this gif, it’s so hilarious HAHA) [x]

@hansanghyuked - if I’m not seeing Bernice’s gifs first, It’s Annie’s is that the first time I’ve called you by your name? LOL. She’s very speedy when it comes to gif-making the newest VIXX videos, but ofc she does it very well! She always adds a nice sharpened effect to her gifs!! But seriously, I see her beautiful gifs EVERYWHERE. No wonder, since they’re so good~ ♡ She also has so many different blogs, idk how she’s able to make gifs and keep them all active ;w; (P.S. your haken blog is a blessing dear <3) [x]

@shit-vixx-say / achahakyeon: Angel’s gifs = amazing ♡ She’s always up to date with the newest VIXX content and like the others, is very fast when it comes to making gifs of them. Her coloring is so pretty too?? She has that coloring that is darker, but not a bad kind of dark? Kinda like what I said about Celine’s. She also does so many omg…She’s currently doing daily gifs as a countdown for #happyKENday, so good luck to her~ can’t wait to see all those pretty gifs on my dash! [x]

I’m getting wayy too lazy now, so I’ll just mention a few other blogs here that I like as well: @chained-up-taekwoon (making gifs almost daily omg..I salute you for that) , @hongbins-wife (daily hongbin god bless), @ch-y , (soft, smooth, shiny gifs ckcvlckbvcl),  @sprouthyuk (one of the best vixx shitposters, but still amazing at gifs like wow get you a blog that can do both)

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Sorry if I didn’t add you ;w; I tried my best to mention my favorites, no hard feelings! 

MC and RFA play a board game

Jaehee: 

  • All strategy. 
  • She’s read the rulebook, twice, and insists you do the same so that the game is fair.
  • If it’s a game that deals with fake money (i.e monopoly) she demands to be the banker. 
  • Secretly loves the praise MC gives her for being so good at the game.
  • Also secretly loves the fact that she’s been in first place each round so far. (nine rounds??? come on, Jaehee, at least pretend to let MC win) 
  • Wins a tenth time.
  • Understands why you end up throwing the board.

Jumin: 

  • Has little to no patience with it.
  • Tells you that he thinks his brain is rotting from having to stare at the bright colors for so long.
  • Chooses the cat playing piece. If there isn’t one he chooses the closest thing.
  • Watches you most of the time.
  • Says “pass” when it’s his turn, even though you try to explain that that doesn’t work, especially when there’s only two players.
  • Makes you move his playing piece. 
  • Gets up and leaves when he realizes you’re winning.

Zen: 

  • Wants to play in teams even though it’s only him and MC in the apartment.
  • Tells you that you look ridiculously cute every single time you have the dice in your hand.
  • Touches your thigh every time you get ahead of him and congratulates you. Every. Time.
  • Wants to turn every game into a game of strip off your clothes every time _____

707: 

  • CHEATING! 
  • He doesn’t even try to hide the fact that he isn’t playing fair.
  • Gets Honey Buddha crumbs all over the board. 
  • Accidentally knocks the board with his feet when he gets too excited and all the pieces fly so that neither of you remember where you were at.
  • Keeps touching your face with food all over his fingers.
  • Spits Ph D. Pepper all over you every time you make him laugh.
  • Rewards you with kisses when you kick his ass in the end.

Yoosung:

  • Sits right beside you. 
  • Literally. Right beside you. 
  • Always touching you. Knees, elbows, holds your hand when you’re trying to shuffle cards, tells you you’re cute when you glare at him.
  • Actually pretty good, uses strategy like Jaehee but takes it too seriously.
  • Convinces you to change up the rules.
  • Gets irritated when you start to get distracted.
  • Competitive!!!!!! 

I really wish I could properly put into words the differences there are between not caring about white men and men of color. I’ve seen too many fandoms go “well I just don’t care about men” and act as if it’s okay when it comes to the disgusting behavior they have towards male characters of color on their shows, and that’s not right. Men of color do not have the same privilege as white men do. In fact, white women have greater privilege than men of color do. So when I see fandoms shitting on the men of color in their shows, especially when it’s to uplift white women, I immediately go on the defense. There’s a whole history behind this and fandom doesn’t exist in a fucking bubble and y’all need to check that shit.
