i really like this blue color on her

I think this took like an hour? Iunno.
I’ve literally been coming home from work and drawing Crimson Cranes. As soon as I have enough pages I’m going to start posting them. I’m really excited.

Anyway I decided to take a break from that endless cycle to draw my shark girl (still unnamed, have had one suggestion though) and coloring her manga-like…though with blue hair. For my friend. Who I care bout a lot. EH HEM. ANYWAY.

Yup.

Tumblr, I need your help

This post is different from my normal content, but I’m desperate here.

When my little sister was five and I was nine, we each bought a stuffed animal, a puppy dog. Mine is brown, and hers was cream-colored, and they were great comforts through moving, and growing up in an abusive household, and everything else that comes with that.

My sister lost hers at camp several years ago, and she’s been sad about it ever since. I’ve looked everywhere: ebay, amazon, thrift stores, rummage sales, talked to people on facebook, contacted the camp and the people that went there, tried to find the toy manufacturer (out of business), I attempted to contact the local store where we bought it…nothing.

I really want to help my sister here, and find her stuffed animal, or at least, one just like it. Again, this was a huge comfort to her through so much stuff that happened. It was always by her side, and it made her feel so happy, and since it’s been gone, I know she feels like something’s missing. She loved it so much.

I know that my only tool left to find it at this point is word-of-mouth. So if you would, could you spread this to as many people as you can? Put it on facebook if you want, screenshot it and send it to your friends, I don’t mind. I just want to help my little sister get her comfort animal back.

It’s a 12″-ish stuffed puppy dog, and the brand is Caltoy. Here are some pictures of mine, so you can see what hers is supposed to look like:

The only differences are that hers was a light yellow-cream color, and I think the ribbon on hers was blue (though I could be wrong about that).

More specifics:

It was sitting up, and had no tail. It was all the same color like this one, no dark ears/paws/etc, just the dark nose. It was made by Caltoy in or around 2003.

I would really like to find this for my sister, so that she can have that comfort again, and she definitely needs it right now. 

Please share it as much as you can, to friends or followers, whoever you can. I will be so grateful to all of you who help. <3

i love justine and her kids…

  • McQueen’s crash was really fucking brutal like god damn they did such a good job with that scene like I know everyone is all “oh haha he dies” but sitting in the theater watching it happen you just feel paralyzed because holy shit. Anyways, major kudos to Pixar for making that probably my favorite scene in the whole movie because of the beautiful cinematography.
  • Jackson Storm!!! I thought I was gonna hate him, and I did he is a grade A jackass, but just oh man he’s just so fucking cool and sleek and the black and blue coloring is sooo good. Yes I hate him but also I love him. 
  • The colors of all the new gen racers were so great!! They were all so sleek and shiny and cool looking and colorful!
  • At first I didn’t really like Cruz, she kinda bugged me in the overly happy kind of way, but that didn’t remain the case because OH MY GOD I’M SO PROUD OF MY DAUGHTER!!!
  • McQueen doing the warm up exercises to get Cruz to come with him was so great. McQueen is A+ dad material.
  • McQueen mentoring Cruz on the beach without even realizing he’s mentoring her gave me life. 
  • The entire demolition derby. 
  • I was honestly expecting the school bus to be a guy so I was absolutely ecstatic that it ended up being a girl!! Anyways, I love Miss Fritter she’s fantastic and amazing and so badass.
  • Fritter trying to straight up kill McQueen and then later while being interviewed being all exited and saying how she’s always liked McQueen was so cute.
  • “Racing wasn’t the best part of Doc’s life, you were.” 
  • I can’t believe Doc Hudson is a gay icon.
  • I make a post about a week ago predicting that Cruz would race in McQueen’s place AND I WAS RIGHT, I WAS RIGHT, I WAS RIGHT!!!
  • McQueen up on the platform with the headset on coaching Cruz almost broke me I was flipping the fuck out oh my god he was the splitting image of Doc it was amazing.
  • Cruz doing the wall flip trick. I had a fucking conniption fit it was so good it was perfect it was, although a bit predicable, absolutely astounding. 
  • Cruz took Doc’s number. So good. What a way to bring it full circle.

I actually really like Cressida more than you could imagine. She's one of the starco children I can actually see being star and Marco's daughter, she's doesn't have to much star nor to much Marco... it's perfect!!! I also like how you gave her darker skin and Marco's eye shape. Usually people would make their starco child blonde with brown eyes or brown hair and blue eyes with lighter skin. Anyways Cressida's design is GOLD!!!

You really think so? Because I thought Cressie may look a bit too much like her Dad, but still, thanks!

Here’s a ramble on our thought process when we were making Cressida: we wanted to make her color palette slightly different from Star and Marco, since I just don’t want her to look like Star with Marco’s color palette and Star’s blue eyes. So, we made her skin a tone between Marco’s and Star’s! Also, her hair color is just a tad lighter than Marco’s, we made it so it’s clear that she got that trait from her Dad but not making the color the exact one. Here’s a quick color chart thingy:

Another thing is her eyes: one thing that I’ve always noticed that most Starco child OCs tend to look like their mom (maybe a bit too much, sorry to say) and I feel they don’t utilize Marco’s eye shape enough (I only saw it in @aweirdlatina​‘s Amanda and @turquoisegirl35​‘s Luna, which is depressing because I absolutely love Marco’s eye shape) so I gave Cressie that.  Her hair shape is a mix of Star’s bangs and Marco’s hair, and I gave her Star’s nose. Another chart thingy:

Also, her eye color is almost the same shade of Moon’s as well because I haven’t tortured River enough lol:

I’d say that Cressida is one of those ‘brown-haired blue-eyed’ Starco children, but I guess people really dig her design.

Unanswered questions have been nagging at me. Kim is like so many other women, it seems to me, who have grown up with trauma. And yet there is no talk of the long-term effects. I decide to put the question of sexual abuse to her plainly. She tells me that yes, something did happen in the home of a relative when she was a girl, but she doesn’t want to get into the details. She has never talked about this before. She doesn’t want to dwell on the pain. I am saddened by her admission, and the fact that so many years later, she is still so clearly devastated.

And I am saddened that even here, in a place for relaxation and nurturing, she is unable to divest herself, even for a few hours, of the blue contact lenses and blond wig.

“Think about it,” she confesses when I ask her to talk about her experience of skin color. “The girls that [men] dated when I was younger were light-skinned and tall. I’m short and brown-skinned. And I always wondered … how do I fit in?”

Did she ever overcome the feeling of being ugly?

“I really haven’t,” she admits. “Honestly, though, I think being Lil’ Kim the rapper helped me deal with it better. Because I got to dress up in expensive clothes, and I got to look like a movie star or whatever. I think doing photo shoots and seeing all the people respond to me has helped. [But] I still don’t see what they see.”

anonymous asked:

Hello friend! Although I've been practicing in digital art for almost 3 years, I'm never completely satisfied by the result of my works. I usually never like the coloring. And from what I've seen you have the most unique and beautiful coloring style. So, I wanted to ask you, how did you find it? How did you expirement and settled in this style? Thank you for your time!

!!!! Thank you so much! ;v; 

We’ll start with ygo !!  because everything else before that is Dark Past and absolutely terrifying Never Again

early 2015, I used to try doing semirealistic art because artists like jiyu-kaze, artgerm, and sakimichan
the last piece took probably 2 weeks???? it was painful lmao

I used to do the thing where you painted everything in grayscale first and then used a bunch of layer modes to layer colors on top, inspired by this, and it carried over to my tg art. it would take maybe long time to finish anything because I didn’t really know how to use it correctly. 

 Then my style started off being inspired by sui-zakki  (the author of tg), especially these pieces xx, x

I switched to using base colors after a while and tried to paint the way ishida did. I really liked the way that his art wasn’t exactly smooth?? or that you could still see the edges of each color next to each other… the colors looked really sharp and abstract. You could say this is the start of the style I have right now <:
Along with base colors, I used a lot of lumi & shade layers to add highlights and shadows. My backgrounds were usually a lot softer and sort of random at the time (I think you can see my style improvement best through the way I drew/colored my backgrounds ‘v’ )

Around 2016ish, the colors I used were lighter because I used less lumi & shade and used more on overlay and multiply layers (this is what I do now) or by coloring with only changes in opacity (this was mostly influenced by ammeja). There’s the prominent geometric edges or whatever in my colors because I started using a more square-ish brush for everything and I really liked how it looked when the colors weren’t seamlessly blended together. (the victor in the center was my first yoi fan art, he looks so different now asjdfjgjgjgjf :’> )

I color in a more blocky/geometric style, and instead of painting my pieces and smoothing them out like the ones above, I just stuck with sketches/lineart (this old tg piece is the one that got me to stick to lineart).
My coloring was mainly influenced by barachan, lanxin, and seventypercentethanol, and their pieces like xx, x
yahoberries (I love her art so much you don’t understand) influenced my blue/white outlines as well as the stray blob of colors that I sometimes don’t erase around my art
I really like crystal/gem-looking colors, and having geometric shapes as highlights or shades looked pretty cool too, so that’s how my style happened <3

Name: Bianca
Gender: Female
Occupation: Waitress
Crush: Boris

Personality: Acts like a kind, sweet and innocent cat during work hours but when off duty, she turns into a complaining drama queen. WARNING: Curses like a salior and she can be quite clumsy at times. When around Boris, she gets really flustered and jumpy.

Fur Color: Black & White?

Attire: Pink & White

Eyes: Pastel blue

☆ Author’s note: Sowwie, I would have colored her but my mom would get pissed at me for getting distracted from my work..so here is a crappy sketch of my oc.

Lapis redesign because I dislike her canon one. Specifically because of the fact she doesn’t really have any shapes that really DEFINE her, like Garnet = Squares, Amethyst = Circles, Peridot = Triangles ect, I associated her with a water drop shape cause…. y’know w a t e r.

Also got rid of the horrid neon blue colors and gave her speckles of yellow, like the ACTUAL LAPIS LAZULI GEM HAS. Why didn’t she have any sort of yellow incorporated into her design in the first place.

My Artistic Process

Hi everyone!  I got a question from @ellenoftroy​ about my artistic process so I thought I’d post the process for this fox in a dress painting, especially because I’ll be running a contest to give away the original tomorrow!  I’ll probably make a prettier post at some point, but for now, here’s how I work!

DETAILED COLORING TUTORIAL

I got asked by people who never made gifs before how I make and color them, and since I already made a tuto how I gif, it’s time I show how I color them

what you’ll need:

  • basic gif making knowledge (I made a tutorial here)
  • photoshops cs5/cs6/cc (I’m using cs6)
  • a pen so you can sign a contract with the devil

I’m going to try to explain how I usually color my gifs with some extra explanation and comments on how and why. I go like this on almost everything and it works like a charm.

so, from this:

ohhhh my goodness the straights need to Stop indoctrinating their little boys with this whole “pink is a girl color, and anything associated with girls is gross and should be kept as far away from me as is humanly possible!!!” crap.

at work we have a little section of stuffed animals and this one particular kind has two dogs: a brown dog with a blue collar, and a lighter brown dog with a pink collar. a couple weeks ago we ran out of the blue collar one and a man and his son came up to me and asked if we had any more of the “boy dogs” left. i pretended not to know what he meant, and made him explain to me that he was looking for the blue one.

sometime before i transferred to this store this woman offered to buy her grandkids toys. the little girl chose a cat with a bow on its head. the little boywent, “not that one, that one’s a girl!!!!!!” i said, “what’s wrong with girls? she’s a girl,” i indicated his grandma, “she’s a girl,” his sister was still nearby, “i’m a girl.” he didn’t have an answer for that. they aren’t given reasons they should hate girls. they’re just mimicking their little friends and it’s reinforced by their parents and pop culture.

just now i was looking at suitcases online and there’s this one that’s super cheap because it’s made by this little chinese company; and there’s a whole bunch of reviews that are three stars because they’re like, “it was really affordable, it’s really sturdy, and it fits the carry-on requirements, but the lining was pink with white polka dots!!!!! i bought this for my son!!!!!!!!”

meanwhile, once in the three years i’ve been working retail, one single time, have i heard a little girl say, “no, that’s a boy color,” to which her mom said, exasperated, “oh it doesn’t matter, it’s navy blue.” because “masculine” colors are the default and “feminine” colors are an undesirable deviation.

like, it’s not a good feeling being treated like that. it’s hurtful and embarrassing to be openly loathed. like every time you like something, a boy can go “ewwww!!!” and it’s funny and acceptable. girls are given no recourse except to retaliate with “girls rule boys drool!” which is affirmed on big dog t-shirts and at their birthday parties and nowhere else. when i was in high school i was walking somewhere with some classmates and i was sending my dad a text telling him where i was going, and one classmate goes, “i love when people text while walking.” and all his little friends laughed. like, it’s a small thing that feels shitty. i felt shitty. you’re encouraging your sons to do that to other people repeatedly for their entire life lmfao. getting poked once hurts and is annoying. getting poked repeatedly all over for years gets pretty awful.

like, best case scenario, in the best possible version of outcomes, you’re teaching your sons that it’s okay to insult your daughters and your daughters that it’s their job to suck it up. best case scenario you’re preventing your kid from enjoying a color. in the best possible ending, if your son actually likes those colors, you’re making him feel shitty.

these colors were arbitrarily chosen. it’s not natural behavior, because if it was natural, you wouldn’t need to teach your sons to be this way. if your daughter has to suck it up about navy blue, maybe your son can suck it up about pink polka dots.

// Masterlist //


I hummed to myself as I sweeped the floor clear of the dust. I moved all of the dirt to a small pile which I would pick up later.

No matter how your heart is grieving…If you keep on believing…The dream that you wish will come true…” I sang to myself. My mother taught me this song before she passed. She told me that whenever times were tough or if I was feeling down, that I should sing this song.

I was finishing up when suddenly, Stepmother’s cat, Lucifer, jumped out of nowhere and pounced on the pile of dust. He ran around a few times, scattering what I’d just cleaned. The cat even turned to look at me with what, I swear, looked like a smug look in his eye.

“Why you little-”

hello fire emblem heroes dev team

i know you will never see this bcus 1. im a nobody, and 2. i dont know if you speak english, and yknow, language barriers and stuff

i wanna start this critizism with this, i love your game, i play it everyday and i really like what you are doing with it, i cannot wait to see more of the special events and more units added for more funtimes

that being said, there is something that bothers me about bunny lucina, dont get me wrong i do like her and im dumping endless amount of money going slowly bankrupt to get her, but i cannot shake the feeling that her outfit was an afterthought

Hear me out, i like fanservice as much as the next guy, but i do think that fanservice can be enhanced when given the proper care in terms with the character that you are making some “cheesecake” images with, i think a fanservice image is enhanced and more embraced by a comunity when it also makes sense with the character that you are making this changes to, and with the Lucina outfit, i cannot shake the feeling that its just the camila outfit with sleeves, it doesnt really *highlight* Lucina, its the exact same suit with a blue color, and this bothers me because huge cleavage and big boobs are more like camilas thing, and lucinas outfit feels more like its trying to get that sex appeal when her sex appeal lies in a whole different spectrum

Where Lucina shines is in her slim pretty figure, so i would have suggested that you went with more of a one piece swim suit approach with it, something that really highlights her body shape and as a bonus her regal personality, and as a bonus to her quirky side of having not the greatest fashion sense, you can add some cute details, sometimes showing cleavage is not the best option to make a character look sexy, sometimes a character looks WAY better by showing their assets in the best way possible, anything can be ~sexy~ if worn by the right person to ~make~ it look sexy yknow?

I hope you are having a great day, i know im not the most expert character designer, but i hope you keep in mind this for your future events, instead of making the same outfit twice for 2 males and 2 females, i would love it if you had time to make subtle changes that will enhance said extra outfits with the characters that you are gonna use them for 

With love, Fsnow

(p.d: please for the love of god make the focus characters 5*’s chances 2% higher <3)

“I don’t believe it,” She said flatly. […]

“He asked me not to tell you–to let him be your only father–as long as he lived. After that, he said, it was up to me.” I swallowed, licking dry lips.

“I owed him that,” I said. “Because he loved you. But now Frank’s dead–and you have a right to know who you are.”

the criteria of what makes someone white-passing or not is like so complex and really reinforces even more strongly that sadie probably does have several traits in common with carter and julius, but her hair color and eye color are so jarring that people don’t see it. like when carter first describes sadie, he says something to the effect of “she has blue eyes. i’m not kidding, blue.” like, as if to imply that this is unusual and unexpected. which……you probably wouldn’t say about someone who literally just looks like an average white girl, because why would that be surprising? he doesn’t mention her skin color as surprising, just that he and his father are “dark brown” and she’s fairer than him.

i don’t really have much of a point here beyond stop using white girls to represent sadie as it’s practically a guarantee that this isn’t really what she looks like. like i said, what does and doesn’t make someone white-passing is so complicated. like if you really look at like, zendaya, for example (who is also biracial), she’s not white passing, but really, how much of that is down to her having dark curly hair and dark eyes? if she had these apparently jarringly blue eyes like sadie is supposed to have, would we look at her differently? probably.

Mismatched

I have heterochromia.

My mom has it too, only hers is sectoral heterochromia. A part of her left eye is brown while most of it is blue. Mine’s complete. My right eye is brown, the left is blue. As a kid I’d get the most excited reaction out of the adults-

“His eyes are so beautiful!”

“Wow, they’re different colors!”

“How stunning!”

I’d like to say that my eyes are only one part of myself, that it’s just a slice of the pie that makes up me. But really, the only fascinating part of myself is the heterochromia. I’m average in grades. Height. Strength. IQ. Not much stunning charisma either- I tend to stick to myself.

But in the end, it’s my eyes that saved my life. And maybe the lives of a few others.

The killings started my sophomore year. A young couple going out to smooch in their car was found dead, mangled by some wild beast. Their faces had been eaten off, their tongues ripped out, and their eyes completely gone.

I didn’t know them, they went to the private school. All the same, the stories started up about the Gosbecks Knoll Beast.
