all the gifs above used this colouring although it will not work for all scenes (trust me i learned this the hard way) but with a bit of tweaking it can work for a fair few

 IwaOi AU where Iwa can see affection…

  • Iwaizumi is born with the ability to “see" affection. He can see them in different colours, radiating from the person that are physically close to him according to their intensity.  
  • Iwaizumi learns to tell what each colour means as he grows up.
  • Iwaizumi loves the soft glow of orange (warm and caring) coming from his parents when they are with him.
  • Oikawa’s is a bright cream yellow (happy and optimistic) when they are together and Iwaizumi loves it because it feels like having his personal little sun beaming when they are with each other. 
  • Iwaizumi learns what soft pink (shy and young love) means in middle school from a girl handing him a confession letter. 
  • Iwaizumi first sees the colour pink on Oikawa when they are in high school but it soon turns into a droopy grey (hesitant and depressed).  
  • (Iwaizumi misses that cream yellow from Oikawa.)
  • Iwaizumi is happy to see the grey turning into a beautiful mix of blue and turquoise (clear and devoting love) when he accepts Oikawa’s confession. 
Trans Resources - Undies & Swimwear

I’ve partially put together a drafted masterlist of trans-specific undergarment resources. 

Right now it only contains links to online shops, two in-person stores, and a few article guides for trans folks learning how to tuck or make your own binder. I did my best to make it readable, and colour-coded some of it. That said, if there’s any way to make this more accessible for you, please don’t hesitate to ask!

This doc is shareable via link, so feel free to post it on Facebook, in group chats, send it to your friends, whatever. 

If you run your own database, website, youth group, whatever, you are also welcome to link this as well. Whatever gets this info out there to people who need it!

I should be updating it in the future so the contents of the doc are subject to change without notice.

Signal boosting by all, including cis people is welcome.

First of all, thank you! Second, pls ignore any mistakes, English isn’t my native language (as you know …or maybe not)

Well, I… the answer may be disappointing bc I don’t have a certain system, I don’t use swatches and I rarely use references (i.e mostly when I paint some complicated lighting hell). When I draw simple pics/comics/whatever and I need a simple colouring I just pick skintones I find pleasing for an eye while sticking to the main colouring rules (warm light -> cold shadow, no shading with black/the same colour but only a bit darker (same as using the burn tool in Ps OMG DON’T USE IT FOR SHADING CRIES) etc). And by the pleasing basic colours I mean smth like these

There are tons of great skin palettes and refs on the web, you can easily find those you’ll enjoy.

Now, how I do this. I practice. A LOT. The main purpose of this practice is to learn how a different light (its temperature, intensity etc) changes colours (including skintones). Long story short:

And, as I said before, I don’t use swatches. Why: bc after like a week I completely forget why I saved them. Are these for skin? For hair? For some unfinished painting? Will I regret deleting those? ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿??????

But I DO like collecting palettes. Especially the wild ones ahaah….. So I just save them like regular sketches and keep them simple (I don’t use this creepy face, it’s just an example for u laughs):

And since you mentioned depth I think this is the part where I tell you you can take the most incredible skin palette but it won’t give you any depth if you don’t know what you’re doing. When I draw a thing I always try to imagine it as a 3D object (not just a bunch of lines) and to keep in mind where the light is coming from.

Ok here is a fragment of a painting I made a long time ago, not too good but anyways

The point is you can take ANY colours (that don’t even resemble skintones ..but, well, won’t kill your own eyes) and create depth, if you know how an object you draw works. Yes, colouring is a very important part of the art process, but there is no point in searching for the “right” colours if you don’t understand how to apply them.

Ahh I hope this will help… somehow…..

The end xP

So after some consideration of how much time and effort I’m putting into portraits, I decided to raise my prices!

$25 - A fully coloured and detailed portrait, as shown above

$35 - (Australia only) Includes portrait printed out and sending it to you! Sizes are negotiable, but anything over A3 will incur a $3 extra fee! If you don’t live in Australia then I will probably need extra to cover the outrageous ass shipping costs. Idk we can work it out.

  • Any fandom ok!
