i don't know a thing about photoshop

anonymous asked:

hey all of your art is really cool!!! i specially like your glitch art. Do you have any resources to learn to make these glitches? like, different ways and techniques to do it. I've been looking for a consistent way to make them happen at will so i can base my art on glitch art, but you can even make interferences with a scanner, and i don't know a thing about this

Here’s some techniques that I use:

Databending with textedit, as described on this webpage. 

Scanning with interference, as shown in this video. 

At the end of the day though, photoshop is my biggest and most valuable tool. There’s a lot you can do with it to emulate and enhance glitch art.

First of all, there’s the aberrations that emerge from normal images when you increase the saturation to maximum. Example:

Also, the Shear tool has a lot of application. (Filter>Distort>Shear)

Here’s the above right image repeated and then severely sheared. See, this makes lots of progress towards making a glitch-esque aesthetic. 

Additionally, it can be useful to downsample your image using “nearest neighbor” if you want to downgrade the quality and make it look more jagged and “bad.” Making glitch art is sort of like reversing all of the conventionally correct rules of digital art.

The principle is… keep playing around with adjustment layers and other features until you get what you want. 

There are lots of graphic designers and artists using image editing programs such as photoshop for glitch-esque artwork, so there are plenty of tutorials you can find regarding their techniques and all that. 

I’ve made glitch art in the past purely using databending and other “pure” glitch art methods, but in order to actually use glitch art as part of a drawing or a graphic, it is necessary to use an image editing program for fine-tuning and adjustments to ensure your image looks as good as possible and achieves the desired effect. 


I reached a follower milestone not too long ago, so here’s a chibi crew thanking you guys!

Thank you! o(*^▽^*)o

I’ll get you for this, Pan, if it’s the last thing I do!

(She hates the boy so much, she tastes bile when she thinks of him. The creatures of Neverland love him, adore him. She vows to end him. She’s not the one kidnapping children from the mainland, leading them to a world of lonely immortality. And yet they call her the villain. They paint her such a caricature, she might as well have a twirly mustache.

She’d give her left hand to capture Pan.)

Oh, I wasn’t talking about the “bunk-up”. No, I was talking about the way Becky was trying to get the manuscript to me, you know ? Um, when she was with you all that time. The way she was secretly working with me to try and get the manuscript away from you.

I just think it is great that you can forgive her, that’s all.

Melly! I've tried to turn my phone while using snap chat filters and it won't let me because of the face recognition and because it's perfectly on both of their faces, it would stuff up the filter and not sit on just Gigi like it is. I think it's photoshopped. Also the rose on Zayn's jacket ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I thought something abt him looked off too!! *rolls eyes* at least the stunting wasn’t too bad. Zayn’s name is still out there and he still looked the most interesting out of the couple tbh

Heyyyy, Melly. I just saw your tags on that Gigi snap and I WAS THINKING THE SAME. Zayn’s head is at such a weird angle, too, it just seemed off as soon as I saw it. Idk. I’m not super familiar with Snapchat filters and what magic they work, but this is suspect. Also funny that we didn’t get a video of her with Zayn like we did with Aziz… Thanks for your continued greatness!


So I was going to be enterprising Melly and try and check if this was indeed photoshopped for you:

 and I learned something new today! It’s actually harder to detect if an image has been photoshopped if it’s a photograph of an image (like a screen shot of a snap), because the ELA will only register from that original particular photograph (which may be obvs to everyone but everytime i take a photo it looks like blurry footage of Sasquatch). 

It may be that it wasn’t actually photoshopped at all, but it’s rather clever to upload the more photoshoppy images that way ( or  Gigith’s favorite photograph of a photograph method).

But rose anon, you are totally eagle eyed and correct, there is indeed a rose up in there:

You could 100% make the argument that he just likes that particular jacket (Zayn does have A+ jacket game and that one is particularly excellent), and I don’t know that the appearance of the rose on his jacket is particularly meaningful. But it also could be like the three roses that appeared here:

and also the roses that appear on Liam’s hand here:

And arm here:

It could just be one of those things - i’m honestly not entirely sure.

edited to add because I think some Anons were confused! If you wanted to upload a photoshopped photo to your snapchat story it’s simple. Loads of third party apps provide that service - SnapUpload for one. Just wanted to be clear since apparently some folks were confused about how you could do such a thing.

Day 2: Favorite Quote

“Darkness. That’s the first thing I remember. It was cold, and I was scared. But then… then I saw the Moon. It was so big, and it was so bright. It seemed to chase the darkness away. And when it did… I wasn’t scared anymore. Why I was there and what I was meant to do, that I’ve never known, and a part of me wonders if I ever will.


I should have said something that night, but I didn’t. I guess I was… surprised. I’ve been thinking about it ever since. About what you said. It’s like you were asking me to decide something right then, and I couldn’t do that. I mean, you don’t know anything about me, really. And I don’t know anything about you. Except I know you’re good at what you do. Really, gifted. I know that sometimes that makes things lonely. I know what that’s like. To be alone. To be lonely.

“I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself but for what you are making of me." 

Here I am with the usual guide I write for these kind of things!
Brace yourself cause this post is gonna be super long, even thou I promise I’ll try to be as succinct as possible. Obviously, since I haven’t recruited him yet, there might be a part two of this later on this week (more likely tomorrow or the day after tomorrow) with the info about that too.

First things first, you’ll need to build a new portal. Which requires yet again a new drop (Magic Runes) you can get only from the mission board both to be built and to be opened every hour.

Like last time, the 3 heroes that can actually go through the portal are Tony, Nat and Enchantress. 

While it’s obvious that this is a bug, I don’t know if we either will be able to send all 3 of them through the portal or if the devs will delete that third slot under there. The point is, right now just 2 of them can go through the portal at the same time, so until they fix this bug just pay attention to pick same lengths missions, cause you won’t be able to open the portal if someone is still in there (just like it was in week 1).
(I suggest the 4 hours missions, you’ll get why in a minute.)
EDIT (on the matter of that suggestion):

I found this on reddit, so just choose whatever you want guys. I guess it’s really a matter of how often you can check the game.

So, what are those rings you collect from the portal and what do you need them for?
