Hi! So I was wondering how you made those pixel art rooms for your ocs? They're super cool and I'd love to make something similar for mine if you don't mind. What program did you use, and did you use some sort of color palette? I just really think they're super rad, I'd appreciate knowing how you made them!

Hello! Waaah thank you so much! I got a lot of help from my friends who are advanced in pixel ;)

I use Photoshop CS6, I started with 150x150 canvas with 300dpi and then filling up the dots with pencil tool. My process is the same with digital art (lineart, base color, and shading). For palettes I chose a main color (pink/blue) and used analogous/neighboring colors! When you’re finished you can enlarge the image up to a few hundreds percent with nearest neighbor setting. 

I’m still learning myself but I hope this helps! Also here’s a tutorial my friend gave me *w*

how did you guys attatch the dots on your Ladybug cosplay? I thought about doing hot glue but honestly not sure how to go about doing that since it will stretch ;w; thank you!


graphs on a Cartesian plane are mindblowing to me - specifically the fact that they’re a metaphor, one of the most useful metaphors our species has invented and utilized

If I’m at a lecture and looking at a graph of how wind electricity power generation fluctuates throughout a day (x is time) or as a function of wind speed (x is velocity), that image is a metaphor for *the way wind turbines act in response to variables*, and when I look at those couple of lines I’m translating it into an understanding of the behavior of an abstraction of a particular type of machine

moreover this metaphor is continuous - every point on the function that is drawn out has a specific meaning, e.g. ‘this specific dot tells me that at wind speed X, the power generated is Y’

even more amazing to me is that the math that governs (underlies? is a basis of?) both geometry and physics makes it so that the area under the curve translates to something meaningful as well - in this case, the amount of energy generated throughout a time period - the area is a metaphor for a physical quantity

when I do math, to reason about statistics, what I’m really trying to understand is the behavior of the world - if I have prior assumption X and observe n events, what is my new belief Y? - but I am unable to clearly understand the behavior of the world without drawing out on a piece of paper two axes + some dots or some lines - and my need to do this to get the answer effectively isn’t a feature of how the universe works, it’s a feature of how the human brain and education in my culture works* - and if I had a brain that processed information very differently, this metaphor may seem redundant or opaque or silly

* although graphs on a cartesian plane are so useful I can’t imagine what other visualization tool - and it would have to be a visualization tool - an AU modern human culture could use if they didn’t converge onto ours

starry sky tutorial bc i’m bored and can’t sleep

this is going to be a long post btw. I just draw backrounds too often and wanted to make use out of one.

first of all, you should use the full version of paint tool sai  i don’t remember how limited the trial was

lower the density on the brush tool and stoke sevral large smudges preferably blue and purple colors. 

go over those strokes with a few other colors  try to mix black in until everything looks blurred and smudged

it should look like this or similar

now add a layer and poke a bunch of dots all over for stars in pen or airbrush. this takes a long time but it should look like stars

use varying densities, and change how hard the brush is every so often. use colors such as light pinks,blues and yellows  add in some stray strokes if you want

now make a new layer and do the same you did with the first. just with smaller brushes and more pastel colors

it should look like this after a minute a two. 

stretch it out and put it on luminosity or lumi and shade depending on what mood you’re setting (top left corner under paints effect)

add some random stars and sparkles if you want and that’s pretty much it!

I was just tired but wanted to to a short tutorial so I hope this can be helpful!

how do i select things and resize,flip them?

In the PC version there are several selection tools on the tool bar on the left side of the canvas. After making a selection you can use ctrl+T or cmd+t to resize your selection. While holding down cmd or ctrl you can free transform your selection. To flip your selection you go to ‘Rotate’ in the ‘Layer’ menu.

In the tablet versions above the canvas you can use the dotted line icons to make selections. In the Android version to after making a selection click on the dotted line icon below the canvas. This will open a menu that gives you options to transform your selection.

In the iPad version after making a selection, up the upper left above the canvas are a square icon with dots in the corners and an arrow shaped icon. They will let you scan and transform your selection.

I have a request for a tutorail if you can do one that is,uhmm Could you teach use how to make custom bodies/poses??

Of course.

An introduction: I use Paint Tool SAI. If you do not use Paint Tool SAI,  your method of editing sprites may be different, but the idea is the same. If you have any questions(on the method or Paint Tool SAI), feel free to inbox/message me, but not on anonymous; that way, I can help you personally.

I am no means an expert, nor am I a good teacher, but hopefully this will help.

Custom bodies and poses can be done in two ways; by making your own resources completely or pulling from others to have different arms and poses depending on what you choose.

What that means is draw out your own pose, whether by scratch or using a pose already made, completely covering it:

Don’t ask why they all have capes; it ended up being coincidental and dumb.

Or taking various parts to make one(hint: the arm) while keeping the rest:

how to make an aesthetic post

step 1: make a playlist, but only add once in a lifetime by talking heads on it (this step is not optional)

step 2: listen to your playlist on repeat (very important)

step 3: open up photoshop, use your type tool and write something with arial bold (from my knowledge this is the only acceptable aesthetic font)

step 4: make a grid background or something idk

step 5: upload it on tumblr dot com

I film with a JVC camera on a mini tripod and edit with iMovie and the app Vidlab. 🎶 Wouter Hamel - Live A Little 🎶 (I’m sorry this video is zoomed in too much! I accidentally changed some settings on my camera 😥)

today I got this bizarre ad on

1. is that mettaton? I’m pretty sure that’s mettaton. not only is it undertale but it’s mettaton. you think ok, this is a cosplay website. you guess that makes it just a little less weird. but

2. mettaton got past my ad blocker somehow

what is mettaton doing? how does he have this power? this ad isn’t even a tricky ad that might fool a blocker, no, it’s a vanilla sidebar ad

3. this isn’t even an undertale cosplay thread. undertale is far from its height, it’s late 2016. and this is a fucking homestuck thread from 2012

4. refreshed the page. closed and went back to the url. in incognito. mettaton was still waiting for me. did cosplay dot com manually embed mettaton on their website? maybe that’s something they do. how would I know. I’ve only gone on this website to familiarize myself with the finer points of how to not kill myself via mod podge

5. not even to mention the rest of the ad. spring new arrivals. it’s late september. or is it new spring arrivals? and the badly aliased edges that reveal exacltly where someone used the magic wand tool to impose mettaton on that off-pink background

conclusion: mettaton what the fuck. why am I being accosted like this
