Hey, where I can find your effect stars (gif) with your edit here => /post/153925981468/defenders-smoke-bomb-photography

@cpn-america also asked me something similar, so I figured I’d kill two birds with one stone and make a tutorial! 

how to make something like this:

or this:

you will need:

  • photoshop cs6 (or cs5)
  • a basic knowledge of said program
  • the top gif from this post (this is where you get the sparkly effect, so just drag it onto your desktop)

One of my favorite things about our fandom is how when the guys introduce themselves “we are super juni-oeo” we do it back like “we are elf-oeo” and I think thats beautiful and I love us.

Happy elf day you guys, I love each and every single one of you, thanks for being here ever lasting friends.

Hi everyone! 

First of all, I just wanted to thank y'all for all the love on the last tutorial I posted -I’m glad people found it worthy of sharing and reading. I wanted to make this one more in-depth. I don’t think I would call this a “tutorial” to achieve something specific, but a look into the thought process that goes on regarding environments, storytelling and execution. Hopefully you can relate it to your own thought processes you currently have.

Have a good one, guys! If you got questions, do ask ‘em. :)

(Also. I know I’ve been quiet in posting new art lately. A lot of the art I can’t show yet but there is cool stuff on the way.)

are the words in your grimoire drawn or edited on?

If you mean the grimoire-styled infographics I post, then they’re digital collages made in Photoshop! I have a physical grimoire (images below) but as you can see, it’s much messier! 

I have what’s called dyskinesia (a movement disorder), and my hands shake, so it’s difficult for me to draw or write in a neat/pretty fashion. My handwriting’s tolerable, but beyond that, I really struggle to draw or illustrate physically.

Below are some images from one of my physical grimoires. This one is just my taking notes on Christopher Penczak’s writings, but I also have a similar one for spellcraft, and a completely different-looking binder for daily use/normal stuff like Tarot readings and schedule notes.

The reason I started making the grimoire infographics was because I longed to create something pretty and Craft-related. The notebook images themselves are photographs with Photoshop layers designed to fit on the pages. 

This will sound extremely weird, but I find using Photoshop very relaxing and I’ve often used it as a sort of coping mechanism when I’ve had anxiety issues in the past.

A friend took my handwriting and turned it into a font, and I sometimes use that font for the images. I think that’s really cool and probably more people would take advantage of it if they knew how easy it is to get a personalized font!

Of course, that was a few years back, and since then, I’ve been trying to practice with physical drawing/art. I doubt I’ll ever be good, but I’m hoping some day to have a really nice physical grimoire. 

You’ll notice that the physical grimoire I keep is basically just my writing covered with a layer of broad soft pastels, which is easy for me to do - I slide the pastels over the image, then smudge with a sponge. It’s hardly nice or perfect, but it’s soothing to add color to it, and I enjoy it!

I am thinking of doing some sort of tutorial about how to make images using these methods, because I think it’s a cool thing if you are interested in Photoshop. From my perspective it was really good for me since I really have trouble with fine movements, and maybe other people in the same situation would like it.

Sims Tag Thingy?

I was tagged by @recklessims and @barleycoffee and @writehoodie and @eslanes ALL ARE TOTAL BABES HIGH KEY!

I tag (I am sure some of you have done thing before, this just means I like you): @gemsincc, @ohhiplumbob, @stillgotme@whistlesims4, @wandering-simblr@dreamteamsims, @delphini-sims, and @teddybearsims!

OKAY SO! 

I went a little overboard with this tag and did like blog timeline with my first edits compared to my recent edits, old vs new versions of my sims, and things like that, so if you are interested maybe? It is under the cut.

For Example; Old Wednesday & Amelia VS New Wednesday & Amelia

Hi! Can you please do a tutorial on how to do this bottom gif its sooo cool! /post/159254312287/insp

Ahhh thank you! And yeah, sure! I didn’t save a psd of the original gif but I kind of remade it so this tutorial should be able to walk you through it. 

What you need is Photoshop and basic giffing knowledge.

So the tutorial is for this gif:

The original post is here.

I’m not the best at explaining stuff but I’ll try! If you have any other questions, just send me an ask. Tutorial is under the cut.

You use (used to use) both Sai and Photoshop. Is there a noticeable difference when drawing in Photoshop? Because I know it has a LOT of different tools whereas Sai is meant for drawing alone, and I was wondering if it was better. Thank you 😊

The programs are pretty much the same but there are several differences; to keep it short imma use bullet points:

  • brushes in photoshop do not blend, they work on lowered opacity while in sai you can experience the smoothness of blending with basically every tool;
  • as much as sai can blend stuff it doesn’t have the gradient tool which sucks in the long run; Photoshop has it and the variety of options is bombing
  • brushes in photoshop are bombing too, and definitely far more developed, textury and exotic than those in SAI (tho those in Sai arent half bad)
  • Sai is simpler which is both an advantage and disadvantage; the interface is very appealing while photoshop might be confusing at times (especially when it comes to brushes, holy shit)
  • ps has X^n more options and effects than sai, this involves layer effects, adjusting colours and B L U R I N G FILTERS that let you do super cool stuff with your art
  • photoshop allows big ass brushes and big ass canvas while sai is limited af in that area and for that reason crashes wayyy more often than PS (not to mention that PS creates a back up ver of your current work so you don’t lose EVERYTHING)
  • PS is EXPENSIVE AS SHIT while Sai is like 20$

To sum up, Sai is alright and definitely recommended for people who are starting, but oh boy there are reasons why I switched to Photoshop

We live in a golden age of art programs (and tablet hardware!). 

I remember in 2005, where every art program was either a pirated copy of Photoshop 7 (even though CS2 was out at this point) or Open Canvas 1.1. If you were a cool kid, you used Oekaki boards or Art Rage. 

Nowadays, we have inexpensive art programs like Clip Studio Paint and Paint Tool SAI. We have free programs like Krita and Medibang Paint Pro which are also really high quality. Then as far as cheap Photoshop and Illustrator alternatives go, there’s Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer, respectively. I know there’s many more programs, but it’s just so exciting how many options there are for digital artists these days!
