first try at making a graphic


I convinced my fifty-something father to finally sit down and play a video game by having him play the intro to Inquisition, to which his reaction was both hilarious and amazing–like introducing a kid to Harry Potter or Star Wars for the first time.

He was absolutely awed at the graphics, the massiveness of the game, the story-line, the acting, the ‘living movie’ aspect of it…. And then, somewhere around trying to hunt rams in the Hinterlands, it crashed his computer :(

I suggested starting at the beginning instead, since Origins is much less graphics-heavy than Inquisition, and he’s now hooked. It’s the best thing ever to make jokes about Alistair’s love of cheese and have my father laugh along with. I haven’t told him yet, but I plan on buying him a shinier computer when he finishes DA2 so we can curse Egg Head’s name to the wind together as a family.

Dragon Age is the best. :D

If I can fly, I’m going to fly. εїз
Can you hold my hand so that I won’t be afraid anymore?
Because, if you and I are together, I can smile.

How To Make a Poster

It’s beginning to look a lot like recital season! Something a lot of people don’t consider when thinking about their recital is posters. A good poster may not just improve attendance at your recital, but also be a very nice addition to an eventual website portfolio. Plus, it’s just nice to have something that looks professional and neat.

First, there are five basic things you need on your poster: your name, your instrument, the date and time, the location, and the names of anyone else playing in the recital. Without this information, people won’t know what the poster is actually trying to tell them. Check out other recital posters to find the order in which to list those things.

If you aren’t making the poster yourself, it is IMPERATIVE that you tell your graphic designer that all of that information is mandatory. Make sure they actually have the information, too. If you are making your own poster, your name should be a main focus, and everything else should be clearly visible and easy to read. A dark purple font on a black background may be Edgy and Cool, but it will not be fun for people to read, and that’s the point of a poster! I recommend putting your text on a solid color background, just to keep things simple. A border or a block of color in one corner or along the bottom works well. Keep the majority of the text in the same font. Your name can be in something fancy and different if you really want, but everything else should be in the same, easy to read font. If you have to squint even a little to read it, it’s not a good font.

When it comes to pictures, you should choose a poster picture based on two major things. First: do you actually own the rights to use the picture on a poster? Hint - if you got it off the internet, probably not. Have someone take a good photo of you, or of your instrument, or maybe just of something related to your recital, specifically for your poster. Using photos not designed for a poster, or that you don’t have explicit permission to use, can result in Problems like copyright issues and lazy-looking posters. That’s bad.

The second consideration is this: if the picture was seen by a potential employer, would it give them a good first impression of you? Posters are meant to be seen by people. Some people who see your poster have probably never heard of you before. They should come away with a good impression. When you’re out in the World, people who see your posters will be random, instead of being your classmates and professors. In the World, these people may choose whether or not to attend your concert after seeing your posters. Some of these people may even be in the market to hire musicians! Either way, the general music-loving public is going to be funding your income - that makes them close enough to an employer that you should care about giving them a good impression! When in doubt, just ask your teacher if it’s appropriate.

Finally, get your posters printed somewhere good. Kinko’s is okay, but I’d bet your University has somewhere you can get posters printed on good paper for cheap. Find that place and you will be much more pleased with the result than just printing them out with a private printer. This is about professionalism. Good-looking posters are worth it.

So that’s how to poster! It’s not as intimidating as it sounds. With a decent photo-editing software, you can make your own in about an hour. Good luck!


♡ [SHOP] LOVEs Closet | Fanmade NU’EST Merch
As a way to try and earn some money while I don’t have an income, I decided to open my own RedBubble shop dedicated wholly to creating NU’EST themed merchandise. “From the Moon, to the Stars” is my first work, with a few examples of what you can purchase showcased above. If you visit the shop, you can see the other items available with the same print, including a clock, mug, tumbler, and laptop accessories! 

Should these products sell well, I would love to make more graphic designs! I already have an idea for another lyric-themed piece.

Could you do a graphic tutorial for/post/120855259626/throne-of-glass-by-sarah-j-maas?

I’ve never done a graphic tutorial before so I hope this helps. I’m assuming you have basic knowledge with PS6 because that’s what I use. For this graphic we’re going to use the polygon lasso tool and marquee tool so I hope you’re familiar with those.

Gif Tutorial

So I was asked by a couple anons to do a tutorial on how I make my gifs and now that I’m done with exams I decided to do it. This is the first tutorial I’m making so I hope whatever I say makes sense to those who are interested in it. And before I start explaining I’d like to say that this is the regular method I use to make my gifs and it’s something I ended up with trying many tutorials I found online throughout the years. So if you find any similarities with other gif tutorials that’s probably why. I would also like to remind you that the settings I use always change with each scene and lighting so if you want to use it, you’ll need to adjust them for every gif differently.

So I’ll be explaining how to go from this:

to this:

Or how to make this (which is basically the same)

One For the Ages

Summary: In a world where you stop aging until you meet your fated, Gavin had stopped earlier than he was supposed to. He didn’t know what it meant, if there was wrong with him, but he was ready to wait as long as he had to for whoever he was destined to be with.

Gavin wasn’t ready to stop a second and third time. But the universe had a plan and Gavin could wait forever.

First part of fan comic Azul.

The story sets after the events of Sonic Adventure 2 and links both Tikal and Shadow’s stories, trying to explain untold things from their pasts and how I thought they could have gotten along with each other.
Not exactly a shipping story, though.

(This is my very first time making any sort of comic/graphic novel and I had wanted to make this since I was 14 but I didn’t feel I had the skills needed and I don’t think I have them now either, but I could use this as a practice.)

Second part can be found over here.


lovelyz at hogwarts: lee mijoo // gryffindor // half-blood // sixth year // © 

With her girl-next-door looks and her outgoing personality, people are drawn to Lee Mijoo. Her down-to-earth and sweet charms - a subject, she is ironically failing in - makes her a popular Gryffindor, with many of her late night escapades around the castle influencing the first years to conduct their own (Lee Soojung, head girl: MIJOO JUST STAY IN YOUR COMMON ROOM). An avid fan of Quidditch since she was 8, she is ecstatic when she becomes one of Gryffindor’s chasers in her fifth year – however she can’t help but also have butterflies in her stomach when a certain Hufflepuff beater winks at her every time she’s out on the field.

Walking Dead season 7 shocker: Major character comes out as gay and it's not Daryl Dixon

Back in 2014, there was confusion among fans that whether Daryl Dixon was gay or not. Robert Kirkman denied the idea of portraying Norman Reedus’ character as homosexual. However, he did not drop the idea completely and promised to stay true to the graphic novel and now we know why.

Two seasons later, in the latest episode of Walking dead season 7, which aired in the US on 19 March, one major character subtly revealed his sexuality during one of his emotional conversation with Maggie.

“For the first time, I feel like I belong. Trying to make sure you and Sasha became a part of this made me a part of this. When I was first here, I was never here,” Jesus tells Glenn’s widow. “I, um, always found it hard getting close to anyone. Neighbours, friends… boyfriends” In response, a smiling Maggie nods her head and encourages him to “try it sometime.”

Tom Payne, who plays the long-haired Hilltop member in the show, says he is happy the way the show creators have written down his character’s coming out of the closet. “I loved how that was handled in the show, and it struck me that I don’t know when the last time he shared that information with anyone was, so that shows a really nice relationship with Maggie,” he told Hollywood Life.

“It’s just a small scene. I loved how in that small scene with those two, he spoke about being in a group home and he spoke about having boyfriends and revealed a lot about himself in a short amount of time.”

In the chaotic world of death where everyone seems to have lost their sanity and fails to differentiate between what’s good and bad, Jesus has been a smart man guiding his people towards safety. In the latest episode, he managed to save Daryl and Maggie from the hawk eyes of Negan’s henchman, Simon. He also played a key role in Rick’s search for alliance and guided him to the Kingdom in previous episodes.

With Sasha in deep danger after she locked herself inside the Sanctuary to kill Negan and Gregory’s growing insecurities as the leader of the Hilltop, fans are anticipating that Jesus may play his tricks one more time to save his people.

The Walking Dead season 7 airs every Sunday on AMC in the US and on Monday in the UK on Fox.
