i keep trying to find a right coloring for it

 So, I’ve been getting recently tons of questions regarding my notes, and today I decided to make a post about it. If you find it useful make sure to reblog it! 

First of all lets talk about supplies. 

Should you invest or stick to your regular supplies?

We’re all different and we all have different needs and economy. In my case, I love stationery but my economy right now isn’t that high to buy all of the cute stationery in the world. I’m always trying to find dupes, or products that work similar to expensive ones (i’m also guilty of doing this with makeup oops). Here goes a list of the essentials I keep on my pencil pouch. 

  • Pens in different colors - I like to give a color to every single element on my notes. Kinda like a color scheme. Blue = definitions , Black = general content. My favorite pens are the Pilot G2 Gel pens, they’re just a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
  • Fineliners - Fineliners are by far, one of my must haves. I used to use papermate color pens, but when I bought my first pack of Stabilo’s, It was love at first sight. The two most popular brands are Stabilo and Staedtler. Both of them have their pros and cons, so here i’ll leave you a video of a battle between them. I’ve never tried the Staedtler ones, so I wouldn’t know if they’re better or not. They’re really useful for mind maps, subtitles, decorating, titles, etc. You should totally save some money and buy ones!
  • Mechanical pencils - I stopped using regular pencils because sharpening them was just pissing me off. My favorite ones are by papermate.
  • Markers - this ones to me are pretty optional, but I decided to go for some Crayola ones to make some tabs or titles. I would say they’re useful, but only if you feel like buying them. 
  • Highlighters - There are thousands of types, and thousands of brands. But it’s all about your needs. If the reason you want highlighters is to highlight on books, I would really recommend Sharpies and Stabilos. I have both of them, they work pretty well. And here we go with one of the most popular products around tumblr: mildliners. I have to admit it:  they’re beautiful. They come in different colors and they’re just gorgeous! The only problem to me is the price. They don’t sell mildliners here in my country, so I have to order them from Amazon, and it’s just really expensive. Are they worth it? To me, yes. But if you don’t want to spend that much money on highlighters, you can also try the Pilot Frixion Light ones. Anyways, here’s a video comparing many of these popular brands. 

Now that you have your stationery set and ready, is time to get started with the hardest part : taking notes. One thing you need to know is, I take many of my notes in class time, which means I have to come up with a plan and a color scheme in a matter of seconds to get started when the teacher starts giving class. 

My note taking process:

  1. Set a color scheme - You can make it all pink, all blue, all warm colors, all violets, etc. I always try to alternate and use a different color for every topic, so you should try it out. 
  2. Different fonts - I use cursive for subtitles and my normal handwriting for the rest of the text. I always get asked: What did you do to get such a neat handwriting? My answer is: practice. I used to have a really horrible handwriting when I started high school, but once I discovered studyblrs, I began to copy some of the handwriting on pictures. I came up with my own font and i’m really happy with it! So dont be afraid to copy some handwriting you like, in the end you can always add your style to it. 
  3. Organize your information - Many times teachers ask you to make mind maps, diagrams, charts, etc. Choose the one that fits your information. I’m a huge fan of diagrams, but I also like to use charts a lot. Its all about your personal opinion. Most of the times teachers give me paper sheets with al the information on them, so the next thing I do is to highlight definitions. Once I’m done with definitions, I start highlighting with a different color the rest of the text. 
  4. Start writing - This is my last step, and its pretty simple. Once I have all of my information sorted and organized, I can get writing! I spend a lot of time doing it so I really commend you to find a good and relaxing playlist to have fun while doing it and a bottle of water.

I hope you found this post useful! Love, Dani.

I don’t normally prefer tcw designs over the movie ones but the visual allusion with that armor is so fucking strong that sometimes I can’t actually help myself.

Stiles was tired.

So tired that if he’s being honest the sweet release of death won’t give him long enough to become well rested. More often than not these days tired is now his default setting.

It was the reason he was currently walking down the street to his favorite coffee shop in town. It just so happened to be open twenty four hours. God bless because it was one in the morning and he needed his coffee fix if he was going to finish his essay.

A bit of my Character Design Process

Here is a new fellow I made. I love animals, but I’m much more familiar with drawing dogs and bears. It was nice to branch off in a feline direction for this exercise . I also wanted to make him using very basic shapes that could translate to traditional animation easily ( something that I love doing after work hours but don’t have a ton of time for. Keeping shapes basic in the design stage will make the animation process much easier in the long run.)

First the basics! lollipop shapes :D. I loved the idea of a thick main that could add some overlapping action to a bounding animal. Manes are such an integral part of a lion that I wanted that large round shape to be this characters primary read in silhouette.

Then it was time to sketch out a few different styles. This little guy was okay but he looked a little too young for what I had in mind. His round body also took away from his round mane (not that that’s always a bad thing, but in this case I wanted more shape contrast). Time to try something a little bit more tall and lean. 

The next sketches were more what I had in mind. But not quite right yet. I felt like his face felt generic and lacked some of that lion intensity( even with this being a light-hearted design).

It was the tiniest of changes but turning his eye shapes into half moons felt much more feline. In addition to that if the default expression of a character is as wide eyed as possibly, the shapes become harder to push without deforming strangely. Giving the eye some wiggle room for more extreme expressions is something I try to keep in mind when designing facial proportions. 

From there it was just clean up and color, and playing around with some character poses. Now I look forward to animating him when I get the chance.  :) 

There’s never just one right way to do things! But starting with basic shapes and silhouettes is something that I find super helpful.

Carmine: I don’t know. I guess mom really liked your dad. Oh, come on! I swear gaming is a dying art…

Cherry Blossom: What was he like?

Carmine: Don’t remember.

Cherry Blossom: I’m supposed to meet him. Well, I asked to meet him. I’m nervous though. What if he is a bad guy, like that Bitters man? What if Mom is just trying to keep me safe, and that’s why she’s mad at me.

Carmine: I doubt your dad is a bad guy, stupid maybe, but not bad. And I seriously doubt Mom is upset because of you.

Cherry Blossom: She says there is a lot of him in me.

Carmine: Oh, well, then he’s gotta be awesome, right? Because you are pure awesome.

Cherry Blossom: Guess we’ll find out soon.

I broke 4k followers!

So for my stream Saturday afternoon—that’s July 8th—I thought I’d do one of those palette challenge things to celebrate my 4k follower milestone. I’ll be working from this chart:

(You can find the original post here. Thanks to @kyces!)

Here’s how it’ll work! Send me an ask with the following info:

  1. a TF2 character (OCs are okay)
  2. a color palette from the above list
  3. a situation or theme (optional)

That’s it! Simple, right? I’ll be taking these up until 2pm Central tomorrow, July 8th, an hour before the stream. I’ll pick the ones I like the most and try to draw as many as I can on the stream. No guarantees I’ll get to yours if you submit one! Sorry!

Also, I’ll be keeping these PG-13, so nothing with explicit gore or sexual content.


Some clarification, since I didn’t note these things in the initial post:

  1. Anyone can submit a request. You don’t have the follow me.
  2. I will only accept requests via ask. Please do not message me.
  3. Please only submit one request per ask.
  4. Limit your requests to no more than three in total.

I hope that covers it!

My thoughts on boosting

I’m sure most, if not all these tips have already been posted by someone else. But I’ve seen some boosters panic because of the growing popularity of the ‘white death cubes’ on pallets, so here’s what I boost.

-highlighters. It’s 2017, highlighters are what’s up rn and some are smaller than the palm of your hand, retail for $30.

-lippies. At $15-30 a pop, it’s not hard to make out with $100 in ya pocket. They’re so tiny.

-limited edition cosmetics. Any kind, drug store to high end, wait until they’re no longer in stores to list online. You can get the original retail price or higher if it’s no longer available. (I’m currently hoarding the pirates of the Caribbean line)

-universal makeup. It’s hard to boost something like foundation because not everyone can use the same shade. Go for items everyone uses, setting spray, primer, even skin care.

-“fandom” merch. I discovered this while selling some of my old fandom stuff online now that I’m no longer interested in it. Hot topic is a gold mine with ridiculously overpriced trinkets. Disney, marvel, supernatural, DC, ect. Jewlery is obviously easy but clothes are great too.

-name brands. I personally find northface and PINK/VS easy but to each their own. Especially items from pink/vs boost well because you can grab half a dozen items in a trip, and they’re charging $30-$80 for some stuff!? Just keep tags if possible. Nobody wants to buy undies online if it doesn’t have a tag. (I find the silk robes from VS to be an easy item to sell)

Overall just pay attention to what’s “in” right now. Lots of people find fidget spinners to currently be a hot boosting item rn) Also pay attention to the time of year and what clothes and such will be most popular now. (Stock up if you’re able, then list when items come into season)

Try to appeal to the masses for an easy sale, aim for items in a common size or popular color.

As for the selling itself, be a good seller. On most platforms the buyers can post reviews of you as a seller, and sellers with a good score will always be the most appealing to buy from. So make sure you package your items well for shipping and get em shipped quickly!
If it’s brand new with tags, tell em! Include that in the item description as well as possibly how much it’s worth in stores.

Lastly, know the worth. Obviously you’re not gonna get full price but don’t accept low ball offers. know what it’s really worth.
I typically aim for 20%-40% off retail after shipping depending on the item total and the demand for such items. If you’re not sure how much to list it for, search for similar items and see what other people are listing it for on average.

Bonus tip. If you’ve had trouble boosting certain items, try one of these options.
If after a predetermined amount of time, something hasn’t sold or brought much interest, lower the price by 10%.
Or
Try doing a mystery bundle. List the total value of what’s included and the possible brands/items they might receive. The price should be much lower than the value of the items since people don’t know what they’re buying, but it’s better than holding into stuff forever. (Especially successful if it includes all of 1-2 brands/item types so people can be more sure they’ll get something they’ll love. I.E.- “VS mystery bundle” or “mystery lipstick bundle”)

Good luck babes!

anonymous asked:

I find often can't get myself to draw or paint anymore. How do you deal with artist's block?

hm hmm this one is always tough to answer! 

i haven’t been stuck in an art block for a very very long time now because my schedule is so packed that when i actually get the chance to draw for myself i have a million ideas and i want to get right down to work!

but i think fixing it depends on the cause of your artist’s block. if it’s a matter of feeling a lack of inspiration, then i would recommend looking at art that you love. scroll through some art blogs that you love to inspire you, watch shows or movies that make you want to draw or give you ideas for characters or stories or backgrounds or anything! read a novel or a comic or brainstorm with someone to come up with some ideas. look at sculptures or sewn things or felted things. often what inspires me most is looking at people’s sketchbooks or messy in-progress work. sometimes looking at finished art is like looking at something a million steps away. so looking at stuff in progress is more inspiring because it seems more attainable

if it’s a matter of you being unable to make stuff that you like, then try and change things up a little! switch mediums, switch art styles, look at other people’s work and ask yourself what you like about their work that you find is lacking in your own. to keep yourself from growing bored or feeling like you’re not making progress i’ve found that switching mediums really does the trick! right now i’m starting sewing again :) but if you can’t go that far away from your trade like if you can’t sew or do sculpture, if drawing is your THING, then instead of ink or pencil, try watercolor! or crayon! or colored pencil!

another IMPORANT thing is just not caring anymore! it’s easier said than done but i think sometimes art block can be a perfectionist issue that can turn making art into a stressful thing. it should not be stressful! so just doodle! make anything at all, even if it’s ugly. you could even start a sketchbook that you use just for art block times that you can be ugly in and when the sketchbook is finished you’ll have a beautifully ugly book. or you can just be ugly in your normal sketchbook or on paper anywhere or whatever! don’t afraid to make yucky lines or bad work. who cares! not you! 

whatever you do just keep drawing and making art! it doesn’t have to be good, it doesn’t have to be finished, but once you stop making things because of art block it gets harder and harder to start up again the longer you go without making something!

i hope this could help!!! good luck with your work and getting out of that nasty art block!! kick its BUTT

Dean could still fucking hear his brother laughing in the motel room. He’s shut up in the bathroom and the space is feeling a lot more cramped and tiny due to his very unwelcome new appendages.

“I swear to God Sammy I am going to fucking kill you if you don’t stop laughing.”

A laugh tapers off breathlessly. “I’m sorry - ” , no he’s fucking not, “- I’m so sorry I swear I’m going to check a few things and I’ll leave you alone and go research at a diner or something ok. Are you sure you’ll be fine alone?”

Dean scowls at the reflection he can’t avoid in the bathroom mirror. “Fucking peachy.”

He’s naked from the waist up. Sure, he’s maybe put on a little pudge around his waist - he’s never going to give up pie - but he’s muscular and stocky, broad, tanned - perfectly fucking masculine thank you very much.

The sparkly pink fucking fairy wings on his back kind of ruin that.

Dean tries to turn around and catches the tip of one of his thin wings against a towel rack, cursing and tugging back around. Leaning against the door with his shoulder blades, back arching out from it, he scrubs a hand over his face and looks at himself again.

They’re kind of like butterfly wings but the edges aren’t smooth, they ruffle with curly little frills. The pink is darker around the edges, magenta or some shit, fading to a light kind of pink in the middle. Like a good rare steak. But fucking wings. They shimmer iridescently like oil in sunlight, all fucking sparkly and pink.

That witch was just dicking with him to give him pink wings, and Dean is going to make sure the bitch pays for it.

After he gets rid of the wings.

Sam’s voice is near to the other side of the door when he says, “Dude we really should call Cas in on this one. He could probably - ”

“No! Hell no. Not happening.“

"Dean he might be able to fix this with his mojo or whatever and spare me a night of research, and you a night of moping.”

“I don’t mope.”

“Whatever. I’m calling Cas.”

Dean gives up ‘assessing his situation’ - hiding, wallowing, moping - to fling open the bathroom door.

“Don’t you fucking dare.”

“What’s your problem? You know Cas isn’t going to judge you for those, or whatever.”

“I said no.”

Sam rolls his eyes and gives a 'supreme’ bitch face to Dean before he opens his big Sasquatch mouth, “I pray to Castiel -”

His high pitched squawk is satisfying when Dean tackles him to the ground.

FAQ

HOW MANY REQUESTS DO YOU HAVE?
The number is always different, right now we have over 2,400.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO MAKE A MOODBOARD?
It varies depending on the complexity of the request, but anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. (-Mod Luna)
Personally, I work on moodboards for more than ten minutes and hopefully less than an hour (Mod Lior)

WHAT PROGRAMS DO YOU USE TO MAKE YOUR BOARDS?
The ones with thick lines were Pizap, the thin lines are an app called Livecollage (used by Mod Luna); the lineless ones are done with Collage factory (used by Mod Bea)
I use an app called Canva to make moodboards (Mod Lior)

WHY ISN’T MY REQUEST DONE YET?
Not only do we have 2000+ requests, but there are just seven of us here. We keep our request box open, so that anyone can request what they want at any time. The downside is that the requests really pile up- for every board we post, we get about 7 more requests. We don’t necessarily go in order of the inbox, mostly to make sure there is a nice variety of identities (otherwise it would be a ton of Pan, Bi, and Lesbian boards all at once). Just stay patient, we promise we will get to it! (-Mod Luna)

HOW DO YOU SET UP THE BOARDS?
I use LiveCollage to make them and for the actual visual setup- I put the flag in the middle if singular. I then usually go in pairs for every topic or theme, normally across from eachother. So if it’s a pink, flower theme I will put one top left pink, and a bottom right pink; top middle flower, bottom middle flower. In the ones w the white lines, you can probably pick out patterns in my placements if you need examples :-) I try to keep similar colors and brightness of the photos. (-Mod Luna)
I try to make my boards symmetrical with both colors and themes of pictures too, although I probably have my own sense of what it should look like (for example, there’s generally a theme or color connection between the top left and the bottom right picture; ideally, there should be the same amount of pictures for every color of the flag, but it hardly ever works like that); I generally try to find pictures  that match the flag color (unless specified otherwise) (Mod Lior)

HOW DO YOU PICK THE PICTURES?
I use Pinterest to get all of my pictures. I generally take whatever key words the request has (i.e. Books, Punk, Forest) and add aesthetic at the end- those normally yield the best results. So like “Book aesthetic”. When it’s a “two girlfriends” or “pansexual aesthetic”, something that’s not an object or something, I normally search for something like “WLW Aesthetic”, and within that I look for pictures that match the other requested topics. If there are no topics, I’ll do the flag color w the word aesthetic at the end. Hope that answered your question! (-mod Luna) 
I just google the theme adding “aesthetic” in the end, so nothing specific here (Mod Lior)

HOW DO I MAKE A REQUEST?
Just go to our ask and send what you would like. We do LGBT Moodboards, so obviously you need to include something of that like. Specify without flags if that’s what you want, otherwise we’ll put them in. It’s easier on us if you use commas (Like pastel clouds isn’t the same request as pastel, clouds), and if the term could mean something else that you specify what (Like Mint Aesthetic could be the flavor, or the color).

I can’t decide… save it or ship it?

Finding dresses that fit me is a challenge. That is why I usually stick with skirts (which I love) so I am not sure why I keep trying dresses. I always buy on sale and from places that have liberal return policies, I cant tell you how many I have sent back.

I chose this dress because it’s classic and a safe bet. I figured the color blocking would help my figure, which it does if it is the right angle. Unfortunately, if I am not at that perfect angle it has the reverse effect. I think it makes me look a bit chunky, kind of adorable though, but heavier than I actually am.

So what do you think? Keep in mind the photos above are the best ones, others make me look heavier. Should I save it or ship it?

PLEASE REPORT AND BLOCK carleekmt*tumblr*com !! They've been reposting a HELLA LOT of gifs in compilation without credit, asking for reblogs and even getting 1k. A set full of reposted gifs. they do it knowingly, they posted an 'apology' yet they say they'll continue reposting gifs and they dont care. A typical, unapologetic disrespectful and rude reposter. Please report them.

I went through their blog and wow yeah their entire blog is full of reposts.
Their apology post– if you can even call it that tbh, is rude and disheartening to read. Thats pretty much just an excuse to keep reposting gifs without a care.

So please check if your gifs have been reposted too and report/block them!! ;;


“At the end of the day does it really matter if I used a picture? That’s what I thought.“

Also this sentence…. reposters seem to use it a lot. BUT YES it does matter. Believe it or not people work hard to make gifs (resizing, cropping, coloring, trying to keep it under 3MB, finding the right video to gif from (or my problem where PS keeps crashing down before you can even save OTL)) .. Its work and its every content creators right to get mad over something they worked on

In Print

Daily prompt fill: “someone keeps printing cute animal pictures/cryptic messages from my wireless printer n im determined to find out who it is” I thought of Nico and I had to write it! Enjoy!


The first time it happens, it’s weird, but Nico doesn’t really think anything of it. She figures some kid in her building was trying to print out a picture of what is really an adorable dog and just had the wrong printer. She wishes they hadn’t printed it in color, but she figures no harm, no foul, and just recycles it. 


 The second time it happens, Nico almost packs up and moves right then and there. This time, it’s not a picture of a cute dog, no, it’s a message, and it seems like someone’s hell-bent on spooking her. That, or her printer really is sentient, like the message proclaims. But, it’s a prank, right? It has to be! It has to be.

7:05 AM

You’re stirred from your Saturday morning slumber by a light buzzing coming from the other side of the room. Almost instinctively, you dash across the room to turn off your vibrating phone. The phone shows one unread text message, from a number you don’t recognize.

Received: 7:05

I’m not really sure what’s going on. I’m scared — alone. I don’t know what to do anymore. I’ve decided to document what happens with these text messages in the unfortunate event that I am unable to tell the story myself.

You’re struck with an unnerving feeling, but your mind isn’t clear enough to fully comprehend what you’ve just read. It’s too early for this. You decide to head back to bed and deal with all this later.

9:10 AM

Your phone’s familiar buzz rings through your head as you wake up to find another unread message. The number is the same as the first message, and the feeling the words give you isn’t much different either.

Received: 9:10

I’ve decided the bathroom would be a good place to hide. I swear I can hear footsteps coming toward me. I’ve heard them for hours. I need to find a way out, but I’m too afraid to move. It feels like the walls are closing in on me. All I know is that I need to get out of here. It’s not safe.

You’re starting to get worried. You want to help, and you try to reply, but you’re unsure of what to say. You try to shrug the messages off as some kind of prank, but doing so doesn’t seem to make the anxious feelings go away. For now, you decide to go about your day as you normally would.

Pansexual anon here again. I just realized I ever clarified why I got so upset, and no, it wasn't your fault at all!!! I'm actually a big fan of your blog. I'm just not very comfortable with alcohol because my father used to be an alcoholic and he would get very violent, and so I really only had two stims of yours that would be able to calm me down... It's very stressful, you know??? I'm sorry again if I came off as rude.

“Hi! I have a question. For pride, you only posted three pansexual things, and one of them was submitted, and one was alcoholic. Why did you focus more on everyone else? I’m so sorry if this sounds rude in any way, I’m truly not intending it too, it’s just very hurtful to see a lack of representation…”

Hey there,
No worries, we all get a little stressed sometimes! I know the feeling. I didn’t intend to offend you or make you feel upset in any way, and I’m truly sorry for that. I understand some people may have issues or trauma when it comes to alcohol, which is why I make sure to use the tag “alcoholic” with all of that content. As for why I only posted three pan stims, that’s because I had a very hard time finding those specific colors. There was no intentional exclusion at all - but it’s really hard to find the exact colors for every flag. In fact, a lot of other people’s pride flags were completely unrepresented on my blog last month because of the issues I had finding the right colors.

Ultimately, trying to do everything for everyone ended up causing me so much stress I essentially shut down and stopped posting for pride altogether. I didn’t mean to keep you from having more than just two stims you could enjoy. I wish I could have given you more. I wish I could have had dozens of stims for every LGBT+ flag out there. But unfortunately that dream was unrealistic and took too much of a toll on me. But I did the best I could, and I truly appreciate you coming forward and sharing your feelings with me. Take care of yourself and hopefully I can do better for you next time.

Music Player 1 - 钻石 - Preview

So I wanted to try my hand at making a music player, and it’s pretty simple but I guess it came out alright.

Liking this post if you use it would be appreciated, as it keeps me motivated to continue coding. Giving credit if you use the player would be wonderful, but is in no way mandatory!

To install is fairly simple, just follow the instructions under the cut.

Everything’s all right, at least on the cover. Serenity and contentment color the facade of my joy, unblemished. Everything’s a rainbow outside while a storm is brewing on the inside for behind the said facade lies all the insecurities and jealousy I keep within. I am afraid of the day when you would suddenly refrain from talking to me, from noticing my sole existence, that you would find someone else. The fear of losing you is great and I know it will surely be catastrophic. I can’t bear it. I just can’t. So I try my best every time to keep you by my side for the thought alone of not having you breaks my heart.
