A/N: Heyy, don’t worry, this isn’t a dumb question! I’ve been enjoying making reactions myself since i started this tumblr account. I’m not the best account but many of you seem to like my work so here you go~
My first tutorial post on how to make reactions!
1. Decide on a topic and idol
This part is completely up to you. At first when my account was new i did not get requests and so had to come up with my own ideas!
TIP: Be creative! do not do something that many people often do, your work will not stand out :)
2. Make sure you know your idols well
Personally, i think this is incredibly important to make a reaction because readers often look forward to reading something that’s realistic. It would be weird if you wrote a quiet, kept to himself idol like Yoongi to be loud and hyper like Hoseok. It just doesn’t seem realistic.
TIP: I study psychology so i can tell apart personalities really easily but this isn’t the case for everyone, My tip is that you watch a lot of their videos, TV shows, and interviews so you can kind of see how they react in certain situations better
3. Start writing!
What I do on my blog is that i actually list all the names of the members and start writing their reactions based off of their personalities. It can be kind of difficult sometimes but if i get a writer’s block i watch some of their videos to just get inspired again, (i’m not going to lie… sometimes i get lazy ^^)
TIP#1: Despite the fact that most of us see them through screens most of the time, please remember that these idols are REAL people with REAL emotions. Avoid writing them to be so robotic and emotionless (e.g. Yoongi) bc behind what we see through the screen they’re just like us ~
TIP#2: Avoid writing the members reaction to be similar, of course there will be members who have similar personalities but not everyone will react to certain things the same way. You have to look more in depth to their personalities ~
4. (Optional) Add gifs
When i surf through tumblr, my favourite reactions are the ones that have gif’s in it so i can kind of picture the members faces in the certain scenario.
TIP!!!!: This one is kind of important - I prefer to make sure that the gif’s in my reactions correlate to what’s happening in the reaction because it annoys me when it doesn’t. Image reading about a sad breakup and seeing a gif of your idol smiling and jumping around… doesn’t sound very nice to me
HOW TO ADD GIF’S:
( he’s my ultimate bias by the way ;))
4. ~ gif is automatically added when you click on it ~
Well there you go, it’s not very good but I tried. Hope this helps and good luck in making the reactions for your blog anon! ~
Hi Nadia remember that face tutorial you made days (or weeks) ago? It was on how to draw faces, with otabek as the model. I just wanted to thank you because so far that has been the only tutorial that has helped me with drawing. I'm still a beginner and haven't drawn much at all, but my only successful attempts at drawing faces were made by following your tutorial. Thanks again, love you❤❤
OH MY GOSH! That’s so good to hear!! I hope you’re making progress! (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑
But I think it was obvious that I didn’t put very much effort in that “””tutorial”””… I didn’t really think anyone would want to use my tutorial for,,, you know, actual drawing ahah. Had I known, I would’ve made a better, not-so-half-assed one!
Do you want me to?? I could try! I’ll even try making a tutorial with more angles for the faces if you want ;o; I know i suck at explaining and teaching, but if you guys really want a proper tutorial from me i will sure as heck try my best!
/post/158831983002/we-begin-our-story-in-new-york-there-was-once-a wow these are incredible how did you do it pls?could you make a small tutorial?
thanks!! and yeah sure, here’s how i did it:
so first you need to find aesthetic looking pictures (this is what took the longest, the photoshop part isn’t really that complicated)
okay so first i opened all of the pictures and sized them to have a width of 500px then cropped them to have a ratio of 7:3 (so they were then 500px by 215px)
next i added a blank layer below the picture layer, then changed the canvas size to be 600x315 (so there would be 100px extra on all sides)
then, i used the paint bucket tool to make the new layer all white. next, i used the rectangular marquee tool to create a rectangle of 550px by 265px, and dragged it to the center (on the new layer), and picked a color from the picture with the eyedropper tool to create that smaller color border.
then, you add a fill layer of a pattern (my pattern is kinda cross-hatchey) and set it to overlay. then so that the color of the pattern doesn’t affect the color of the frame i added a saturation adjustment layer of 0 and set a clipping mask for the pattern layer (right click the hue/saturation layer and click clipping mask)
okay so then i added a paint brush in a new layer where i wanted the text to be (using the same color as the frame) and set the opacity on 89% (bc im extra), then centered it and erased anywhere it went over my border
then i added my text, aligned it to be centered both horizontally and vertically, then added my watermark
then because i had made 16 edits and tumblr only lets me upload 10, i just created a new canvas that was 600px by 634px (double the height for 2 edits, and then the 4px margins that tumblr uses in photosets)
so yeah there you are! also sorry for the lq pics for this tutorial, it looks like tumblr resized the small ones so it looks really fuzzy but i promise the actual edit isn’t fuzzy at all!!!
Do you know how to make gifs? I keep trying to find like a wee site or something but it isn't working...
Hello love, I do know how to make gifs! If you’re searching for tutorials, my go to source is @chaoticresources, they have TONS of detailed gifs tutorials and so much more. I’m sure you’ll find exactly what you need there!
A redo of one of the covers I did a while ago for my Boneyard story! I really need to make a plain ref for the witch gal here (her name is Rosie), but I’m going to try to stray away from just doing character design. I feel like I’m always starting stuff but then not really doing anything with it, but I’m gonna fix that! (hopefully).
Anyway, this was a fun remake, I definitely had fun working with the perspective and the shading, and I hope to maybe make a little tutorial of how to do detailed pics with this, probably in video form.
Anyway, hope you guys enjoy, and if you have any questions about Bone Yard at all, feel free to ask!
Oh man. Man. I think about this a lot, actually. I mean, even when, or no, especially when they’d switch from wooden sticks to actual blades and he’d teach her how to shoot, he’d always, always emphasize the fact this is is Serious. Sure, Emily, I know that weapons are cool to play with, I know that. I totally understand. But these are not toys, you should understand that you can kill a person with these, that eventually you might have to kill or harm a person with these, and it’s not a game.
I think this is also why you can see emphasizing the non-lethal knockouts in the DH2 tutorial so much, he really wants to make sure he taught her all the alternatives? Because none of this is pretty.
So, the way I see it,
1) Emily kills Ramsay because she’s angry and is not in the mood for petty revenge like locking him up for months and having him trash the only room she felt safe in for years
2) This is actually her first kill, ever
And hey, she did listen to Corvo when she was a kid and he asked her not to touch his weapons without permission and supervision, and even understood, mentally, with her head but not her heart, why did he repeat over and over that none of this is a game, but it still didn’t fully register, you know? She sees her training sessions as a way to blow off steam, this is why she always looks forward to them and wishes she spent more time “running and jumping”. It’s also as close as she gets to spending actual family time with her father as an adult, so it’s totally understandable that this kind of activity is fun for her.
Stabbing Ramsay in the gut, having him bleed all over her hands and on the floor and then her going through an entire adrenaline-powered emotional rollercoaster of being satisfied and then grossed out and then processing the fact that she finally used her fun skills to take a life - that’s a different story entirely.
If u go back on YouTube can u make Sharon Tate and Natalie wood tutorials. There aren't too many on YouTube and I think you would look great with their looks ❤️
I will be back! Got everything I need! Just playing around with my set up but I will be uploading soon! And I certainly can add a Sharon and Natalie look! I love them both so it should be super fun! And thank you so much! 😘💋💕
