i just really wanted to gif this video

Okay, so I didn’t want to post this yet, but I really really REALLY wanna show you guys what I’ve been working on for months. AND since it’s Aaliyah’s birthday… might as well post it lol. So SURPRISE!!! I’ve been working on an animation of Aaliyah! This was supposed to be for the 20th anniversary of her album ‘One In A Million’ in August, but let me tell you something… animating is hard, and it takes a lot of hard work. Even with my hand cramping right now, it’s all worth it. And that’s what Aaliyah taught me. My passion is art, and even though the work is painful, or it makes me bone-tired, it’s all worth it because just seeing something that I created come to life, it’s the best feeling in the world honestly. So, yeah it’s not fully finished yet, but I am planning to finish it by the end of this month or next month. Just wanted to show you guys what I was working on, and that none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for Babygirl and her music. I’ve been listening to her music for over 20 years, since I was little (and her music video, ‘One In A Million’ was the first video I’ve seen of hers on MTV lol), and she was the only artist I really admired, and her music helped me find what I truly love doing, and I thought an animation would be a perfect tribute for me to pay my respects and thank her for inspiring me and millions of other fans out there. 

Happy Birthday, Miss Aaliyah!! Love you and miss you always!!!! 😘💕

So I wanna talk about Slime Rancher revealing their Protagonist, Beatrix, today for the first time. If you haven’t heard, Slime Rancher just officially left Early Access today. It’s a cute little farming game where you capture slimes and keep them on a farm and raise them and combine them with other slimes.

I’ve been following since the beginning. Very early on it wasn’t really clear who you were. You didn’t really have a character. Through updates they started adding a story mode through your character getting letters from home, which is when you learn her name is Beatrix (Bea for short). 

There is no customization in this game. This is Beatrix. This is your character. The reason I want to bring this to light, how often is a WoC the DEFAULT in a game like this? This is a game where the race of the character was not important at all to the story, and usually when that’s the case the default character will be a white guy. How awesome is it that the default Main Character is Beatrix?

I just really love this game guys and this made me love it more

Falling into lava is the worst way to go: It’s all the most awful parts of drowning and burning mashed together like the devil’s slash fiction. But in reality, it wouldn’t be anything like that. Surprisingly, lava is really fucking hot. We’re looking at temperatures ranging from 1,295 degrees F to 2,282 degrees F when it first breaks the surface. A bed of lava is a giant liquid crematorium that is unlikely to gulp you down, if only because you’ll burn to death first.

But even if you cannonballed into a volcano wearing a heat-suit – because fuck cancer, you’re going out awesome – you still wouldn’t drown in it. Lava is over three times heavier and denser than water, with at least 100,000 times the viscosity. It’s borderline impossible for a human being to sink in it. You wouldn’t dramatically sink like Arnold at the end of T2 – you’d just shatter and burn up so quickly you wouldn’t have time to give a thumbs-up, much less the elaborate double bird you’ve been practicing.

5 Ways Movies Say You Can Die (That Science Says Are Wrong)

For those who want to know how I edit photos..

I didn’t edit much, I just ‘enhance’ the photo to make it more lively.

If you have a perfect base, you don’t need to edit much.

Basically what I did every times I edit photos

  1. Liquify the flaws
  2. Draw some hair strands/soften the hair
  3. Use brush to add shadow on skin/even the skin tone
  4. Use Burn Tool/Dodge Tool to darken/lighten
  5. Use brush to add soft black shadow on sims
  6. Blur out all the edges
  7. Sharpen the brows,eyes, lips and clothes pattern
  8. Decrease the scale on Vibrance
  9. Apply shadow on background


I really don’t know how to explain in words. I want to make a video about it but I don’t know how to do and I don’t have time to do,so….

Here’s a VERY EARLY WIP look at the Character Selection/Generation. Still a lot of design work to do on how to display the stats, attributes and traits for the characters as well as a decent background. I also want to experiment with some sort of animation for the big depictions instead of having them just staying still.

Very exciting to finally be working on this. This and the Dungeon Selection will really bring the game loop together and make everything feel like a whole game finally.

That’s all for now!


Tutorial: How to upload gifs!

Tumblr has very specific limits and limits that you wouldn’t think would be a problem when it comes to uploading your gifs! Under the cut are a few essentials to uploading your gif(s) correctly. If you don’t do it correctly, the gifs will not work on all platforms. Example: They might move on the desktop or freeze on the app, etc. 

Uploading your gif correctly is all about the SIZE/DIMENSIONS

Hey guys! This is just my reaction/summary post of the BTS Concert in Newark (Thursday, 3/23)! I’ll be going into a lot of detail, but bare with me. I’ve linked all the fancams I took throughout the post, so you can check that out :)

[Full Fancam Playlist]


Alright so first things first…I’ve been following BTS since ~May/June 2014, and this was the first time I was actually able to go to a live concert. I WAS LITERALLY BEYOND THE MOON when I got tickets, and I was so excited that I was badgering everyone I knew with my fangirling. BTS means so much to me, they got me through some of the hardest times in my life, and they gave me happiness and hope. So getting to go to one of their concerts, see them and support them in person, was such a blessing.

Look, a roll mockup!

I’ve gone back and forth about whether I want rolling in the game, what purpose it will serve, and so on. I think I decided to include it when I saw Minish Cap had rolling!

I’m still figuring out what kind of gameplay effect it will have. Faster movement? Bashing into things? Dodging enemy attacks?

I’m pretty certain I at least want to have a “roll attack” (whether you start with it or learn it later) that does more damage. You’d have to hit the attack at the right time just before the roll ends.

I also like the idea of using it to dodge enemy attacks, but I want to make sure people don’t just spam it (and I don’t really want a stamina bar, I don’t think). Maybe the only invincibility frames will be in the middle. Or maybe there are certain attack types that can’t be dodged. The best route I think for this will be to look at Super Smash Bros!

Feel free to let me know if you have any further thoughts!

Hey everyone!

I’ve been wanting to put a dodge kind of thing into the game to make player movement a bit deeper and allow dodging enemy attacks, projectiles, traps, etc, so today I did just that. The player can now dodge roll out of harm’s way!

I still need to clean the sprites since I did these really quickly as a proof of concept and I need to add some effects as well but overall I’m really happy with how it came out. 


Falling in love with Kim Seokjin (4/)

This was actually supposed to be 3 but yknow, mic drop happened so…. ANyways! Uh same day as 1 and 2, I just keep getting this influx of Jin videos. Most of them were compilations (which btw Jin saying ‘yaaaaaaaah’ after taking a really good bite out of something really makes my life) but I see this recommendation for ‘Seokjin cries talking about his mum’. Honestly, I had no context at all an felt a little intrusive; it felt like a private moment he shared with the Armies at the concert idk??? But I watched it anyways not really understanding the depth of what he’s saying. What I got from it was that he was humble and proud and finally felt at a place where his mum could actually brag about him. I did cry… a lot.. but in my year as an army, I fully realised the weight of this statement. BTS literally came from nothing. There was a lot of doubt around them but hyyh pt.1 really fucking changed it for them. It changed their life enough for Jin to be confidenent enough to tell his mum that he’s made it. It hits me everyday that they’ve made it so fucking far and I’m so so so so proud of them.

Imagine: Video chatting with Sherlock and him “comforting” you after a breakup with your boyfriend.

You: Sherlock! *sobbing* I just don´t know what to do. 

Sherlock: Oh for God´s sake! You´re better than him.

You: *stops sobbing* Really?

Sherlock: Of course! Just forget him, he´s and idiot.

You: *laughs* Thank you.

Sherlock: *winks*.
