i hope people know what i mean

i---draw---things  asked:

Hey I have 2 questions for you! 1. Do you think Jira has any chance at being one of those pairings people love? (Be honest I can take it... I guess :( ) 2. What are you going to do after the show ends? I mean I know you were active before the season 5 but that was before the show has a proper ending. So you know the fandom will die or become semi dead.(I hope I am wrong because I love this fandom) What will your blogs directions be?

1. anything can happen if u habeeb it

2. i have been here since 2001 when i was using a windows 98 computer between web 1.0 and 2.0 to access cartoon orbit and simple html webpages for samurai jack, and i will probably be here until i ascend to help produce the aku spinoff

the fandom had its heyday before fan culture became what it is today, so it’s never really had a big active fandom like this, and meme culture didn’t exist until after the show ended.
i don’t know how many people will end up staying when season 5 ends, but inevitably, most people do move on to different fandoms. 

i am not one of those people.
i am forever in service to our lord and master aku.
when the show ends my blog’s direction will be as it is now: firmly rooted into the same spot, shitting out content for the same fandom, forever.

anonymous asked:

I'm kind of buying you s4 is Henriks social media because: 1) that kid is out of control; 2) it feels very paced and timed and intentional with other cast members and Julie and Mari chiming in; 3) that thing with making the yousef profile public and then private was obviously intentional as well (they really know what they're doing with their social media); 4) julie and Mari are extra like that. I still hope is a split Sana and Even season. I would give up my grandmother for that

I mean i don’t think we are even beginning to realise how brilliant mari and julie (and now using henrik too) are with the use of social media and other resources to make the line between real life and fiction so blurry. I don’t know anything about media studies but I’m sure in no time there are going to be people doing their theses on skam. Fuck I think Even is going to go to university to study media studies and do his thesis on skam, that’s how messed up and brilliant this thing is.

hello! skam is such an interesting phenomenon, isn’t it! my background is in cultural studies and i’m constantly fascinated by skam as a cultural and a social phenomenon. even this fandom fandom is super interesting from a purely academic point of view! Even doing his thesis on skam, ahaha amazing i love this! that would truly be taking meta to a new level. this reminds me, there was actually this japanese tv show some years back where the main character was a detective who kept falling in love with his suspects, the main character’s father wrote detective novels about him, and the main character’s best friend played the main character in films based on the novels written by his father (but his voice had to be autotuned because his performance was too emotional).  that was some beautiful meta, if julie ever decides to do something similar i’m in. :D

@markiplier

This is my way of showing you how much you mean to me.
Your videos make me laugh every day. Your smile makes my days brighter. Your voice is like music to my ears.
I think I can speak for all your fans when I say that we love you with all of our hearts ♥

Digital Painting: tips for beginners

Heyo! I got asked if I could make a tutorial on digital painting so I’m gonna throw together some advice meant for people who are starting out and want to figure out exactly how this stuff all works. Because it’s hard! What I hope to accomplish here is to make painting more approachable for you.

Firstly, I have put together something like this before, so for archival purposes here it is: http://holy-quinity.tumblr.com/post/89594801811/i-dont-know-how-much-of-this-kind-of-thing-you

For those of you who don’t wanna bother reading that, here are the main points:

1. Learn your program and its tools, from brush properties to layer styles. And I mean learn them. Make a cheatsheet that shows you exactly what each button and scale does, both in isolation and in conjunction with other buttons and scales. Refer to this as much as possible until it is intuitive. The end goal is to know exactly what to do to your brush’s settings to achieve a given effect.

2. It’s perfectly okay to use your sketches, linearts, and other forms of line in your paintings. They can help guide the form and there’s no need to make something fully “lineless”! I never make things “lineless.”

3. Study other people’s art and try to think how they could have possibly achieved the effects they did. You can learn a lot just by observing and mentally recreating the process stroke by stroke—muscle memory is a powerful tool at your disposal. This becomes easier to do once you’ve started doing item 1 above.

OKAY!

So where the heck do you even begin?

What I’m gonna do is try to make digital painting as approachable as possible for someone who’s never really done it. The main idea here is that digital painting is just like real painting. So if you’ve ever done real painting, you already kinda know what’s coming.

I’m gonna assume you know the basics of digital art: you can sketch, line those sketches using layers and opacity changes, and fill the lines with color, maybe even opting to add some shading…and you’ll get something like this:

You know, cell-shaded, or maybe the shading’s blended, but you’ve still obviously a line drawing with color put down on layers beneath the lines.

The next intuitive step is to try going “lineless”…but when you remove the lines you get this:

idk about you but I’m laughing at how stupid this looks

When I was first teaching myself to paint digitally, I didn’t really know how to deal with this. Without lines, the form of the subject vanished or became a mess like the above. Even if I was meticulous and careful about placing down the color such that without the lines layer turned on, the shapes fit together, it didn’t look quite right. There’d be gaps, I wouldn’t know how to incorporate the subject into a background, the contrast wouldn’t be high enough, or it’d just in general look too much like a screenshot from Super Mario 64.

Painting requires a different process than the above. You’ll have to let go of some of your habits and conventions. Such as staying in the lines. Such as fully relying on the lines. Like, I love my lines, I love my sketches—but in painting, they are guides for form, and are not the form itself. So let me go through how I approach a given painting:


My painting process starts with a sketch (here a boring portrait for demonstrative purposes). I make the opacity of the sketch layer something like 30%, and then throw down my base colors on a new layer underneath. I’m not being meticulous about the sketch itself, because again it’s just meant to guide my placement of color. I’m also not meticulous about my placement of the color.

We’re essentially sketching with color. Because ultimately what we want is for the color to take on the form and shapes conveyed by the sketch.

There’s a lot going into this about how to use value, how to shade, how to use color, etc. that I’m kinda skipping over because it takes a lot of time to explain…but there are hundreds of tutorials out there on those topics so please, google around! I found some helpful tuts that way when I was starting out.

Something I find v useful is to keep selecting colors that already exist in your image for shading and hue adjustment. This is why I start with really blendy, low-opacity brushes when throwing down color on top of the background. I can then select colors within there that are a mix of the two.

For instance, I’ll select the color of the lines here:

…and use that to shade:

And maybe I’ll select one of the darker shades around his eye, but not the darkest, to make the shading a smoother gradient…and so on.

What I do in general at this point is go over the shapes and lines of the sketch. Such that I can turn off the sketch layer and see this:

I’m replacing the lines with shading and value. I’ll continue to do this as I keep adding color.

This is all super loose. I am not dedicated to any particular stroke. I just want the colors and shading and light source to be right. I’ll use overlay layers to boost contrast or add a hue.

Here are other examples where I used this process:

I am constantly changing brushes and brush settings as I paint. It really depends on what effect I want where. I am also constantly selecting new colors and applying or blending those in. I don’t believe in having some uniformly applied base color and then shading with only one or two…that’s what I’d do if I was cell-shading like the first drawing I showed you here, but painting should be about messing with color and opacity and blending to make millions of hues!

Good rule of thumb: Hard, opaque brushes for applying color. Soft, dilute brushes for blending colors. Sometimes hard, dilute brushes can make some cool blending effects! I personally prefer harder edges on my shading so that’s a brush I use often.

This is getting a bit long so I’m gonna split it up into multiple parts, but really what I want you to get from this is:

1. learn the tools at your disposal until they are intuitive

2. sketch and line are guides for form, not the form itself

3. rather, hue and value will produce the form

And of course, practice makes perfect!!! Every drawing you make, every painting you make, will bring you one step closer to the artist you want to be, and thus every drawing and every painting, no matter what, is a success.

This calms me down so much

Stay safe everyone!

Edit: People are sending me messages about only caring about Dan and Phil. Really guys? Of course I care about all the other people in London at the moment! I just wanted to be sure that they were alright because they are the only people I ‘know’ that live in London. Do you really want to blame me for that? They mean a lot to me and the fact that I wanted to make sure that people I care about are safe is something I should be ashamed for is absurd. 

I am really sorry for everyone who lives in London. What happened was terrible and I hope that everyone will be alright. I understand that some of you are shocked and maybe some of your loved ones were there. These are difficult things and I totally understand that. I care about every single person who lives on this planet and I don’t want to be harassed about “Only caring for my faves” because that is not true.

For the last time, I am really sorry if this made some of you angry or sad. I didn’t mean it and I want to apologize.

Hey guys.

As we all know far too well, Election Day is tomorrow. It’s going to be a stressful day for many, since who becomes president tomorrow will determine if their rights and lives will be respected or not. A lot of people will face intimidation, discrimination, and aggression at the polls and as the results are tallied. We all are hoping or praying for the best, but the outcome right now is still uncertain and the coming weeks will undoubtedly be faced with a lot of hate and anger over differing opinions and sentiments about who wins.

With this in mind, I’d like to ask people to not give up. It will be hard, I know, but please, no matter what happens, do not give up. Don’t stop fighting for what you believe is right. Don’t start believing that it’s the end and that things can’t improve. And please don’t think that the outcome of the election means that there’s nothing good with the world and its people. There is, I promise.

But please, please don’t give up, if not for yourselves, then for the people you care about. Everybody will be affected by the results of the election, including people you love. Please keep your hopes up and don’t quit trying. Even if everything seems awful and horrible, please keep going through it until you come out on the other side.

It scares me to think of what will happen to this country tomorrow. But it scares me even more to think of all the people who could be negatively affected by the election give up on everything. It may seem like the end of the world, but it’s not. Don’t let yourselves think that way, please. Stay strong, friends. We’re in this together and we will get through this.

Okay, let this be my last post commenting on YOI episode 12 because I just want to get these thoughts out of my mind already and move on to impatiently waiting for season 2 of my beloved Yuri on Ice.

I spent the past few days thinking about why so many people felt unsatisfied or even disappointed by episode 12 and I think I’ve reached a conclusion most of us can agree with: It didn’t deliver an emotional climax.

I don’t know if it tried to deliver one and failed or it just chose not to, hoping that the promise of season 2 would be enough, but the point is that there was none.

What do I mean by ‘emotional climax’? Like the kiss in episode 7, or the airport scene in episode 9, or the engagement and banquet in episode 10. Something that shocked and awed everyone at the same time, that amazing surprise, that big development that changed things and meant something but also that made us feel something. That positive punch in the gut.

And episode 12 just… had nothing like that.

I mean the pair skate was beautiful and I adored it and that last scene when Yuuri is running down the bridge in Saint Petersburg to meet Victor and Yurio was just as great and actually had me squealing quietly, but it wasn’t quite the level of what we’ve seen before.

And I can honestly understand why people feel unsatisfied. Because, in simple terms, we got the build-up but the pay-off never came. What I mean by this can be explained by what we’ve seen in episodes 6 to 10. 6 was a build-up to the developments we later see in 7, while 8 was a build-up to 9 and 10. Episodes 6 and 8 may have been less eventful in terms of developing Victor and Yuuri’s relationship, but in the end they were necessary and important for what happened in the following episodes. They weren’t all that satisfying on their own (this especially went for ep 8, I think) but paired with the events of the next episode, we all but forgot about that uneventfulness because it overall contributed to the amazing feeling we got once we hit that emotional climax (like the airport scene in ep 9 and the following engagement in ep 10).

Now, this is relevant to ep 12 in a few ways. Episode 11 certainly felt like build-up to something big, and that would make sense, I think we can agree here, we all felt like something big was coming in episode 12 (as is usually the case with finales). And by “something big” I don’t necessarily mean Yuuri winning gold or a wedding (though admittedly, many of us would have liked that). I think most of us though simply expected and were looking forward to Victor and Yuuri’s bedroom conversation, to them finally getting on the same page and understanding each others’ feelings. I think most us just wanted to hear Victor say that he wants to stay with Yuuri, even if he will no longer be his coach. I think we all wanted to hear that their private relationship is just as important as (if not more important than) their professional one and that just… never happened.

As of right now, Victor and Yuuri still don’t seem to be clear on what their relationship is and what they want from and for each other and we certainly haven’t seen them openly discuss it, despite the fact that ep 11 was building up to that and setting up that scene. So we basically got the build-up, but instead of the climax, the tension just sort of plateaued then began slowly falling.

I’m more than willing to attribute this to the fact that the ending was changed last-minute in order to accommodate for a second season, and perhaps the original ending did have an emotional climax to it, but this one just didn’t.

I mean, Yuuri’s flawless Free Skate had a climax of its own and I think it was great and important, but for example both Victor and Yuuri’s decisions to continue/return to skating were rather anticlimactic. They were relevant of course, but they sort of appeared and disappeared without really trying to move the viewers - they were mostly just plainly stated and the audience was left to somehow feel something from that.

At the same time though, I don’t think that episode 12 was bad or that making a second season is a bad idea. I’ve already said this the week before episode 12 was released but it was impossible to fit a satisfying conclusion into just 23 minutes. It just wasn’t physically doable. I’m sure the original ending tried to do it, but I doubt it would have succeeded either. It would probably also be unsatisfying in some way, but it wouldn’t even leave an option for a second season.

So overall, I’d say it was a good thing. Because a second season can give us character backstories (*cough* like for Victor and Yurio *cough*), and more character interactions, and more development, both in terms of characters and relationships, and an actual satisfying conclusion that wouldn’t feel rushed.

Victor will be able to return to his career, then properly retire when the time comes (rather than do so abruptly after taking a break), Yuuri will be able to get that gold medal he deserves (and we can explore his psychology deeper) and  Yurio will (hopefully) get more screentime and we will be able to understand him and relate to him better (and he’ll have more screentime which is always a good thing for someone that was meant to be a main character and then sort of faded into the background).

So yeah, overall, the ending of the anime lacked an emotional climax, that positive punch in the gut that forced us to feel things, which left many of us feeling a bit empty and unsatisfied. But at the same time, I’m not upset with episode 12 at all because it’s a promise of getting to know these characters better and of a proper, wholesome conclusion - both of these being key in a character-driven story such as Yuri on Ice.

It’s not about hating the guy on the other side because someone told you to. I mean, you shouldn’t hate someone because they’re an asshole or a pervert or a snob, or they’re lazy or arrogant or an idiot or a know-it-all. Those are reasons to dislike somebody. You don’t hate a person because someone told you to; you have to despise people on a personal level, not because they’re Omnic or because they’re human, but because you know them and you see them every single day, and you can’t stand them because they’re a complete and total fucking douchebag.

so, my fellow Les Mis lovers. 

today I was looking through some word definitions for a class (like a good English major) and I discovered something really interesting (and by interesting I mean the kind of discovery that makes you sit with your head in your hands for a little while) 

(also maybe a ton of people already know this and I’m freaking out for nothing but we’ll just hope that’s not the case)

anyway. the word I was researching was grant

and I looked at the word’s origin, because that’s something my professor encourages us to do and it helps uncover meanings that maybe we wouldn’t immediately recognize

and this is what I found:

1175-1225; Middle English gra (u) nten < Old French graunter, variant ofcrëanter < Vulgar Latin *credentāre, verbal derivative of Latin crēdent-,stem of crēdēns, present participle of crēdere to believe

take a look at that last part. to believe. the word grant comes from the Latin verb which means “to believe”

so. grant is part of the name Grantaire. 

it comes from the verb meaning “to believe”

Grantaire means “to believe”

Grantaire. the man who took good care not to believe in anything. his name means “to believe”

GRANTAIRE MEANS “TO BELIEVE”

GRANTAIRE MEANS “TO BELIEVE”

and I have a feeling no one needs me to tell them in what (or who) Grantaire believes 

Eskild: Dear Isak. Just a little greeting from your Guru or Genie in a bottle. I think it was neat that you came to me yesterday. Hope I didn’t crush your hope. But anyway, this guy. Even. He’s just one of many flames who’s going to show up in your life. I promise. What happens, happens, que sera sera. But take care of yourself, because I mean, it’s so shitty to get hurt or feel used. I think you’re brave anyway. Buuut, what if we have a guy’s night out and we find a new one you can fall in love with? I know a lot people in my squad will find you adorebelle. You can borrow tights and mascara from me.

Just kidding

Isak: Thanks, EasyE

Notes: So this turned out a lot longer than I expected whoops. The opening scene is mainly for background and setting, taken pretty much directly from the episode (adding in the reader of course haha). Anyways I hope to be writing more Jughead in the future so let me know what you guys think!


“The drive-in closing is just one more nail in the coffin that is Riverdale. No, forget Riverdale. The coffin of the American Dream. As the godfather of indie cinema Quentin Tarantino likes to say–”

“Please, god, no more Quentin Tarantino references,” Kevin interrupts Jughead, glancing over at you with an expression practically begging you to rein Jughead in from his rant.

“What? I’m pissed. And not just about losing my job. The Twilight Drive-in should mean something to us. People should be trying to save it!” Jughead exclaims, leaning back against the booth with a huff. Veronica leans across the table, grabbing Jug’s hand gently to try and calm him down.

“In this age of Netflix and VOD, do people really want to watch a movie in a car? I mean, who even goes there?” She asks, trying to get him to understand the reason for the tear-down.

“People who want to buy crack,” Kevin responds, and you shoot him a warning glare.

“And cinephiles. And car enthusiasts. Right, Y/N?” Jughead turns to you, hoping that you’ll be on his side.

“Yeah. It’s a piece of town history,” you add, before Jughead turns his attention to Betty on his other side.

“Bets?” he prompts, drawing her out of her thoughts.

“Totally,” she responds absentmindedly, which seems to be enough for Jughead.

“Anyway, it’s closing because the town owns it but didn’t invest in it. So when an anonymous buyer made Mayor McCoy an offer she couldn’t refuse–”

“Anonymous buyer?” Veronica cuts in. “What do they have to hide? No one cares.”

“I do!” Jughead exclaims, and you take one of his hands in yours, interlacing your fingers under the table in an effort to calm him down. You’d known since the start of your relationship that he wasn’t much into PDA so you refrained from it, except for the occasional hand holding and Jughead’s arm wrapped loosely on your shoulders when he felt like it.

Jughead smiles down at you when you take his hand, before addressing the rest of the group.

Keep reading

When I listen back to those first EPs, I’m like, well, that voice does sound fucking crazy. There is no way around it. But I know exactly what space I was in. I was so sure that I didn’t know how to sing that I was just going balls out. I was like: I’m going to sing my heart out, as crazy as it sounds, and I’m not going to care because there’s no hope of sounding anything like what people consider beautiful. I sure as hell wasn’t affecting anything. I mean, the institution of singing is inherently an affectation!

One thing to note about that preview is that it says a ‘shift in the Luthor/Super dynamic’ not ‘their dynamic’ which suggests they’re referring to Lex and Superman’s dynamic as well, so hopefully this means a shift away from the Luthors and Supers being enemies, so that means Lena’s not going to be evil.
