ooh what's the Harry in a record store one? I don't know if I could cope!!!!!!

Let me preface by saying that this is a manip. A really, really good manip. A beautiful manip. The kind of manip that makes you grateful to the soul who invented Adobe Photoshop to make such a manip possible, but a manip nonetheless. So no need to panic, right!??!?!

HAHAHAHAHA JUST KIDDING. PANIC. CAN YOU IMAGINE HARRY STYLES ACTUALLY ALL COZY IN A FLANNEL, FLIPPING THROUGH STACKS OF VINYL AND WHISPERING HOW MUCH HE LOVES THE SMELL OF OLD RECORDS????? AND FINDING SOME HIDDEN GEMS LIKE A BEAUTIFUL CONDITION OF BONNIE RAITT’S “TAKIN’ MY TIME” AND SPRINGING FOR THE REMASTERED “KIND OF BLUE” AND CLUTCHING THEM TO HIS CHEST AND GLOWING ALL EXCITED TO GET HOME AND LISTEN TO THEM???

BECAUSE I CAN.

xoxo cassie, if you need me i’ll be inhaling the smell of my old records and weeping quietly

Hi, Nikki! I really really love your graphics. They're so beautiful and aesthetic pleasing! If you don't mind, could you make a tutorial for this /post/145172474666/url-graphic-poedameron-want-one graphic (last picture), please? Thank you so much! (P.s. you're amazing person!)

Thank you! And sure, I can make one!! The only thing is…I have thousands of texture packs and I’m not positive which packs I pulled from for this graphic! Unfortunately, my computer crashed yesterday and I lost all my recent open photoshop files. So, I’ll tell you what I’ll do….I’ll make something similar and it will be like the same steps I went through to make the Poe graphic, alright?

Tutorial under the cut!

Hi!! I was wondering if when you recolor mamgacaps Do you redraw them?? I just really adore your coloring tbh!! Its so pastel and cute like ??? Your goals !!

aaaaa omg you’re so nice thank you sm!! i actually do freehand trace all the line art on my recolors @__@ i know there’s much easier ways to do it, but i sort of like the entire process. besides, i usually draw in lines that are covered by speech bubbles or draw beyond the frame to fit whatever i’m doing. i know i can’t get the same level of detail doing things this way, but i just really enjoy it!

Bit of quick practice with SAI. I love doing sketches in this program, but I’m still trying to find my way around when it comes to painting. In photoshop I usually had a really pencillike brush that I used to just put the colours down, and then I would smudge them together, but SAI doesn’t seem to have that option so I need to find other ways to do this. I might try to practice some more tonight.

I see so many pictures these days of Aidan and Dean (and Jensen and Jared) that used to have fan(s) in them but people just photoshopped them out of it. Do you have any idea how disrespectful that is? Like, fans paid to have those photos taken and are really proud of it and then you just take them and photoshop them out of it. Same goes for people that crop fans off the photo. Grow some balls and reblog the photo with the fan in it! -_-

I think you are a cute, funny and awesome person, but why do you photoshop your face sooooo much? Like, its really obvious, your face (almost) never have creases, wrinkles, or expression lines. Maybe you should try to make it a little bit more natural...? Its just an opinion, and I am in no way telling you what to do!! its your pictures after all. You don't have to publish this message, btw, i dont care for an answer. Just a friendly opinion!

I know you think that, but honestly, besides on lolita pics, I DON’T really remove wrinkles so much. I adjust light a lot and I DO shop my ugly nose and my butt, but often, when people think I did shop away wrinkles it’s photos which I edited the least. I just cover myself in tons and tons of make of most of the time. 

for example THIS was NOT edited whatsoever.

it’s not the best photo, but you get what I mean? there isn’t really much to remove. 

When it comes to lolita photos I want a very pastelish look to the photos so I edit out big ugly shadows, but mostly it’s really ook. I remove a scar on my head, fix my nose and maybe a dark shadow under my eye and that’s about it. 

mmmh. maybe I can find a photo from somebody else not edited by me…here you go:

as you can see it’s not so different from my own edits, for example this one:

I didn’t even touch my face, I just made the whole thing lighter and pushed my very huge wrinkled cardigan-sleeves a little nearer to my body. 

after color re-touch.

and before color re-touch:

there is not much going on with editing stuff.

I try to stay as transparent about my use of PS as I can, but sometimes people just assume too much when there was just good light, lots of make up and minor wrinkle removement.

I hope that helped?! at least a little? for the lolita pics?!

FOR LOKI I love to just let my wrinkle wrinkle all over the place XD because he is a grumpy god! eheheh.
