i have not figured it out yet

There do seem to be supports in Shadows of Valentia. People have pointed this out on YouTube and serenesforest and elsewhere but I haven’t seen it in my dash yet so I figured I ought to share.
But anyway, if you look you see Alm attacking an enemy (the big faces on the bottom) but then in the top left there’s another face, probably of the cavalier that’s 3 squares away. In pre 3DS games support bonuses usually applied from up to 3 squares. Whether or not this means there will be pairup is anyone’s guess, it seems unlikely to me since I think if it was in the game it would be in the trailer. But I do expect there will be support convos. People were too angry about that being excluded from Shadow Dragon for them to do that a second time. Though that’s just my theory, we don’t know anything for sure yet.

6:30 AM CrossFit, check! I basically got out of bed at the last possible second and didn’t feed the cat until I got home. Sorry, kitty cat!

WOD, 20:00 AMRAP
5 pull-ups (with green and red bands)
10 push ups (with red band)
15 air squats
400 m run
Score: I got through 5 rounds in 21:33. I was outside running when time was up, but I figured I might as well finish my last round even if it took extra time.

I have the day off for Inauguration Day. Not sure what I’m gonna do yet. I kinda want to bake a cheesecake. 😋But first, a shower!

anonymous asked:

Do you have any recommendations for tutorials for making gifs? Yours always look so good! Sorry if this has been asked before.

thank you! 

tbh there are 1001 better gif-makers than me out there but i’ll try to help! 

when i started out i read like, basic tutorials on how to make gifs and then just experimented by myself so i don’t have exact links! but a good place to start out would be @itsphotoshop‘s tutorial page. it’s very informative, and has a number of links to the various aspects of making gifs. yeahps’s tutorial page is good too but it’s less organised. @khelpers is also a new tumblr that has k-pop specific stuff. they don’t have much yet but you can keep watching their gif tutorial tag.

if there’s something specific i want to do and i can’t figure it out after playing around on ps i pretty much google it and then learn from there ^^

some tips would be to:

  1. find the right sharpening actions (if you’d like to know which i use, let me know)
  2. find/make the right base psd. (i started out with this one
  3. learn how to time your frames (see an example here) [edit: this is actl inconsistent with the type of video you have, the way you import the frames and your photoshop. photoshop on different laptops export gifs at different speeds even if they’re set to the same s. my gifs range from 0.04s to 0.09s per frame. sometimes even 0.12s.]
  4. don’t let tutorials limit you!!!! play around on ps and discover the type of gifs you’d like to make! at first i wanted to have gifs just like others but then i just started doing my own thing lmao it’s more fun that way! 

hope this helped????

i need more practice drawing but sometimes i feel like i don’t have enough time in the day to learn everything i want and i get frustrated when i need to be away from drawing due to my own stamina or other responsibilities

i should work on being more patient i guess haha. i told myself this year that i’ll work on Rootless gradually and with a lot of thought and preparation, so I don’t regret releasing it when the time comes

i feel like i’m not there yet though. hopefully soon

Survey of the Miraculous fandom

Hi, I always have the impression that there’s so many artists in the Miraculous fandom so…


If you’re a fanfic writer for the Miraculous fandom, could you please reblog this.

If you’re an artist who makes fanart for the Miraculous fandom, could you please like this.


This Survey will take place until the 21 december (in two weeks).

I will then share the results with graphs.

(It doesn’t matter if your fanarts and fanfictions are popular or not. You gave time for the Miraculous fandom and you’re an artist all the same!)

i can’t honestly still wrap my head around the fact that skam, in under 8 episodes, have shown a mlm relationship with SO MUCH attention to detail, and not only that, but prioritised isak’s self discovery in coming to terms with his sexuality at the forefront of the entire season, and then had even and isak’s relationship be the plot b focus that stems from that, and

skam have literally, in 8 episodes, established the perfect storytelling of a boy figuring out his sexuality and given us the portrayal of such a beautiful lgbt+ couple, that has dealt with every single aspect of them, in such a real, normal, raw manner, and in that, they’ve portrayed it with so much positivity and hope? from the physical side of things right down to the emotional side of things, and have dealt with issues head on and not shy away from doing so.

like, shows that i will not mention FAIL to do stuff like this 5 or 6 seasons in, and yet here skam is, in EIGHT episodes, just 8, knocking it out of the park, and we STILL have 2 more episodes left until this series ends.

skam has literally been a blessing, a revelation, a breath of fresh air in my life and i am so, SO, thankful for discovering this show that has made me so, so happy.

Never Underestimate the pain of a person, because in all honesty, everyone is struggling. Some people are better at hiding it than others.

Dear parents of autistic children,

No, your child doesn’t do weird things “for no reason”. They do it for a reason, you just don’t know it yet. You have different brains, different perspectives, so sometimes things that are obvious to them are a mystery to you. But you don’t have to ignore it and blame it on them. You can make an effort, reach out to them and figure out the reason.

Do they scream in public when it looks like everything is okay? Well, there’s probably a reason for that. Maybe the situation is overwhelming to their senses, it’s too loud, to bright, to crowded, and they need some space and time to recover. Maybe they can’t stim because other people keep telling them it looks weird, so they end up exhausted much faster. Maybe you are breaking their routine by being outside at this time. Or maybe you are going through the supermarket “the wrong way”, not how you usually do it. Maybe they forgot their comfort object at home, and just realized that. Maybe they are in pain and can’t communicate that. Maybe they are very hungry and don’t realize that yet because it’s hard for them to recognize their needs and emotions. Maybe it’s a combination of those, or something different altogether.

Either way, they probably don’t do it “for no reason”. You just don’t see the reason. Make an effort to communicate. If they are verbal, ask them. If they can’t speak with their mouth at the moment or ever, use alternative methods of communication. If they can’t explain it, consult other autistic people, including autistic adults who probably have a bunch of ideas as to why your child does that weird thing. Don’t dismiss it, don’t complain about it, don’t blame your child for doing it. Try to see the world from their perspective. Respect their needs and feelings. Learn more about autism from other autistic people.

And life will be much better and easier for both you and your child.

THE RED LETTERS - Meaning??

After talking with some other people I realized not everyone has red letters in their credits. There have been TWO secret messages. 

The Six Thatchers: THE SIX NAPOLEONS
The Lying Detective: ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH

Keep reading

  • Pidge: Lance, knock it off. Now.
  • Lance: Aww... whatcha gonna do if I don't, Pidgie?
  • Pidge: I will delete all your music files and replace them with Altean Rockabilly.
  • Lance: ...
  • Lance: That's low, Pidge.
And I believe that if I - a couple of decades ahead -
found myself in a room with all the people I have ever loved,
you would still be the one that makes me feel slightly uncomfortable in my own skin, causing a lump to appear in my throat and making my heart pump blood a little off beat.
You’d still be the one that I am somehow hyper aware of, like all of the atoms my body is made of are attracted to you, as if you were the vanishing point that all lines in the room realign for.
—  // there is something about you and yet, I haven’t figured out whether it it positive or rather negative
j.d.m.

My dear lgbt+ children, 

It’s okay to not have figured it out yet. 

It’s okay if your orientation is “I don’t know but certainly not hetero”. 

It’s okay if your gender is “I go by nonbinary in lack of a better term but it doesn’t feel right”. 

It’s okay if it’s “maybe asexual?” or “i think agender but i’m not sure”. 

It’s okay if it’s “It’s complicated” or “I have no idea.” 

You have all the time you need to figure it out. Don’t stress yourself and don’t let anyone tell you you need to know or you need to decide. Finding the right label can be a overwhelming task and it can take months or years to find the one that makes you feel comfortable, And that’s okay! 

You’re a valid part of the lgbt+ community. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

you know, i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again - i don’t think maggie is the kind of person who’s good with words. her meaning never seems to be properly conveyed. with her talk after the kiss, she meant to say ‘not yet’ and what alex got was ‘never’. and i think that’s why maggie is so……lost as to why alex is being like this with her. her meaning just wasn’t conveyed the right way. and now, now alex is telling her this, it registers to her that alex heard that she never wanted her - not that she couldn’t have her right now. and i bet she plays those conversations over and over again, trying to figure out what she could have said differently.
