horrible coloring as always

To See You With Her (Jughead x Reader)

Hi there :) id like to request an imagine along the lines of jughead finds out you self harm / sees your self harm scars? i totally get it if its way to far over your blogs boundaries. thank you :)

Imagine: You’re hopelessly in love with your best friend, Jughead Jones. Watching him grow close with town sweetheart Betty Cooper breaks you inside every time, so you found a not-so healthy way to cope with the feelings of inferiority. Things go so, so wrong when Jughead finds out.

Warnings: mentions of self harm, self harm scars


You bit your thumbnail, trying and failing to focus on the homework in front of you as the words danced around the page. They blurred out of focus, your peripheral vision zoning in on a familiar dark haired boy sitting across the student lounge. Your best friend, Jughead Jones, in all his sincere glory, sinking into a bean bag chair. He sat next to an equally familiar girl with a blonde ponytail and a sweet smile. He leaned in to her, whispering something. She laughed. They would switch roles and the cycle would continue.

It had been like this for two months now. Ever since Betty Cooper had invited your long-time best friend to write with her on the Blue and Gold, they’d been inseparable.

Which should be a great thing. It really should be.

Your growing separation with Jughead was more than losing just a friend. You no longer had someone to text for hours on end into the night, educate you on classic movies (while you educated him on popular ones), and share milkshakes with. You’d be lying if you said you’d never thought of your friendship becoming something more. For your amused glances to become sweet kisses, for your walks alongside the Sweetwater River to become hand-in-hand, that would make life truly perfect.

Any hope of that was severely crushed by the unexpected introduction of Elizabeth Cooper.

You wanted to hate her. You really did. But she was everything you weren’t, and everything you wanted to be. She was beautiful, with a loving, wealthy family. She was smart, but not rude about it. She was kind indiscriminately, and always fought for what was right. She was a River Vixen, for God’s sake. There wasn’t anything about her to even hate.

She was the girl Jughead deserved, and you tried to be happy for him. You really did.

Sometimes, the pain would be too great to be happy for him. Those times when you’d have a great movie in mind to see, but Jughead had already seen it with Betty. Those times when you’d walk home alone, Jughead staying late at the Blue and Gold office. Those times when you’d see Betty walk down the hallway, practically glowing in her River Vixen uniform,Jughead scurrying closely behind. Those moments made you feel like nothing. Worse than nothing.

The pain became so great you had to release it through self-harm. You would politely excuse yourself whenever Jughead and Betty entered a room when you could help it. You would cut yourself in the bathroom, clean and bandage it quietly, and return, able to tolerate their presence. Your sweater and cardigan sleeves hid your greatest secret.

And no one was supposed to know. They really weren’t.

What is European tumblr like? As in, the experience of being a non-American on this website. Most of the time I get frustrated when people automatically assume that everyone on tumblr is an American (which I personally am) who speaks perfect English, so I kind of want to know what the rest of the world thinks. If only just to get a better perspective.

It is frustrating. At least for me. Because everyone here on tumblr doesn’t just automatically assume that you’re American but also that your views, your economic system and your politics are the same as in America as well. But it isn’t. Racism isn’t the same here. Politics aren’t the same here. Health insurance, minimum wage, and a lot of other things are not the same here. But American tumblr forgets. And when they try to press their views upon you even though you try to tell them otherwise they call you a liar. Or a racist. But things over here don’t work the same as they do for Americans. For example I lived half of my life in Luxembourg and I went to school there as well. We were a class with lots of different ethnic groups and none of us experienced racism the way people do in America. The same goes later with jobs. People get their jobs based upon their skills and school notes - not their skin color. I am always horribly shocked when I read about America’s radical views turning everything into black and white, good and bad. There was a long time where I just stopped posting personal opinions or giving my opinion at all, because everything here on tumblr will immediately be analyzed and if you don’t agree with them they roast you with their pitchforks and their so called justice book under their arms. Tumblr is a living hell and this site has a mob mentality that is simply dangerous. So I try to stay in my lane, post my things and let people rage if they get happy from it.

You were always gold to me

okay so since a couple of people asked me already, here is my tutorial on how i color manga caps! this way is pretty simple as im still learning and trying new things. it’s a bit time consuming and you’ll need a basic understanding of photoshop, but overall it’s not very difficult!

the first thing is find a manga scan you want to use. this is the one im using its shishio from hnr of course

External image

before we do anything make sure you’re on RGB mode (image>mode>RGB color) otherwise colors wont show up. 

duplicate the background layer and make sure only the background copy visible

okay now for some cleaning and rendering stuff! luckily this particular mangacap is already pretty well cleaned, but if not i usually adjust levels, or duplicate, filter>blur, and multiply a layer on top which should take away any pixelated icky things. also remember the stamp tool is your friend. sorry i wont really go into detail with all this ahh

theres a bunch of different ways to render, but what i personally think is the easiest for manga caps is using color range! just click on the rectangular marquee tool and then right click on the image and choose color range. now click on a white part of the cap and press ok.

External image

when it’s all selected, hit ctrl + x to delete the background. crop out everything else you don’t need and it should look something like this: 

External image

erase (or select and cut with lasso/pen tool) anything you don’t want. here i erased everything in the background and i usually erase the little grey shading spots around the neck, eyes, nose, and mouth as well as a personal preference.

tip: if you want to make sure you got everything, put a dark/black layer underneath! (new layer>edit>fill>black)

External image

HECK YEAH NOW ITS COLORING TIME !! pat yourself on the back you’ve done well im proud of you bby 

(here is a color palette i made especially for shishio a little while after i made this tutorial. you can grab skin tones and stuff from there idk)

first, you have to duplicate your background copy again. you should have two background copies now. layers are important !!! each thing you color will have a new layer between the two background copies 

External image

i usually start with the skin. i use a normal hard brush and erase any mistakes as i go. i just noticed i picked a horrible color but its okay because you can always fix colors later again, using a black layer behind is pretty convenient to see if you’ve missed anything or if you’re coloring outside of the lines

External image

you would normally repeat this step for hair, clothes, etc. (also another remind to make sure you make a new layer underneath the previous for each thing you color !!!!!) but since shishio’s hair is already colored in, you’ll find that photoshop won’t let you color over it. now you’re going to need to hold on to your anime plushies and body pillows, because things are going to get a bit complicated 

if you want to color the actual hair, make a layer above the background copies and set it to screen. however, im only coloring in the highlights so you would do the same thing except set it to multiply.

External image

the eyes will also be above the background copy. set it to multiply.

External image
 

once you have a base color for everything, it’s time to shade!

make a new layer above the layer you’re going to shade and create a clipping mask. this basically makes it so it will only show up on things you colored on this previous layer (try coloring a spot outside of the skin, you’ll see what im talking about)

External image

i cant really explain how to shade, since im not very good at it myself but after you figure out where the light source is, just try to picture where the shadows will be.

External image

im sorry i dont have a tablet but i tried my best with my mouse to show you how/where i shaded

 i used a soft brush (0% hardness) with 55% opacity to shade around the forehead, neck, nose, ears, jaw, and clothes

External image

NOW ITS COMPLETE WOOHOO YOU DID IT !!!

resize to 500px and add backgrounds, textures, adjustments and stuff or throw a psd or two on there to make things nice as such:

External image

extras: (don’t ask me why i do this, it just looks cool okay) flatten all the layers excluding the psd and make two copies —

filter>blur the first copy and set to multiply
set the second copy to screen

change the opacity according to what you think looks best 

External image

this was my final product:

i hope this helped at least a little! im sorry im not very good at explaining, ive never done a tutorial before, but if you have any questions or need some clarification please ask. good luck!~

endless list of people I love (in no particular order) - [4/∞]
↳ Grant Gustin

“I’ve never been passionate about just music, I’ve never seen myself going into music in that sense. My love for music has always been connected to the stories told through music, which is why I was drawn to theater and why I think ‘Glee’ is so powerful.“

ANYWAYS some key points to remember when interacting with my luciel – 

  • yes, he’s primarily human but he is a SAINT above everything else. he is never awake when he receives prophecies, meaning his body is always on shutdown. prophecies are always in binary code.
  • no, nobody really knows he’s one either. ( xxx )
  • despite appearing physically fit && sturdy, luciel is physically ill. he receives body repercussions after prophecies, ultimately leaving his body to go weak. as each prophecy passes, he gets progressively sicker && his body ever so slowly deteriorates. 
  • in appearance, luciel almost appears like he’s dying. taken from my archived blog: “notably much more disheveled and unkempt,” “complexion is not a healthy color and is instead a horribly pallid color,” “posture is almost always in a slouch,” “eyes are golden with noticeable flecks of emerald green but do not twinkle bright, instead seeming dulled and obscured in melancholy. lines of purple curve under his eyes, indicating that he does not sleep as much as he should,” etc.
  • contrary to his humorous and boisterous exterior, luciel is border unstable && has tendencies towards suicidal behavior, dissociation + panic attacks. however, it is not something he is open about. ( xxx ) 
  • is highkey more distant than canon because his prophecies usually include people he cares about, so he tries to push people away so they wouldn’t under the danger of his prophecy telling.
  • this au includes ALL ROUTES of the game, meaning its all mashed and combined together into one full route. the changed time duration is a month and doesn’t necessarily have to end with the mc getting together with luciel. every major point that occurs in each route occurs in this au – yoosung losing his eye, jaehee quitting her job, zen being included in a scandal, jumin forced into an arranged marriage, him finding the truth about saeran, etc. minteye is treated as a recurring villain group ( think team rocket lol ).

so uhhh, long story short – REMINDER THIS AIN’T CANON 707.

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips or tricks for those who want to make graphics?

Sure anon.! 

1. When cropping fine details (like hair?), use the pen tool to make your selection!

2. Make a new layer for everything like textures, brushes, colors, whatever. *
(Maybe this is just me but I always find myself having to go back and adjust a few layers.)

* If you’re experimenting, duplicate your main/base layer. So if it’s a person you just finished cropping, I’d duplicate that layer, & lock & hide the first layer then work with the duplicate above.

3. I’m really horrible at color coordination, so I always go to Adobe Kuler to help me with color rules. (Select one color & it’ll help guide you around to whatever other colors go with it~)

4. Play with the Adjustments panel & test how things work. My 2 favorite tools are the gradient maps & selective colors. I also really like using Curves* & Vibrance to enhance certain things.

* With the frequent issues of whitewashing skin tones, please, I beg of you, to play & experiment with the Curves tool but use it wisely as you do not/should not remove the skin tone of people. (It’s also really gross tbh.) There are great tutorials here & here (this one is great for pastel edits) to avoid whitewashing.

5. Don’t be afraid to use tutorials or ask for help. There are tons of talented people on here & they’re nice enough to make tutorials for almost everything. My two favorite places to go for tutorials are itsphotoshopyeahps!

Finally, have fun with it! Get creative with it. Don’t stress yourself too much over it & always save your work. 

I hope these tips help anon. Also, if you ever need any help, you can message me & I’ll try my best to help you! :-)

finish it!!

I hope you guys love her ; u ;

sorry if she is horrible..

I dont add shadows because I always change the color of the shados ^^”

Sooo.

She is gentle, cutie, cinnamon roll,#protectchica. She rarely gets angry and love a lot her brothers. She tries to behave like a mother with all but can not be responsible long and combines almost always trouble trying to solve by itself failing. In the end she is a good cook :3

Also she have a chicken tails (?) I forgot to add it sorry ^^”
