I tried to make a theme in a sort of “comic style”. It was pretty tricky due to browser limitations, but I worked really hard on it and hope you like it!~

Nyeh heh heh guess who made an Undertale theme? And just in time for Halloween too? If you’re not a fan of Undertale (though, honestly, I don’t know why you wouldn’t be), it’s still customizable to be not Undertale themed if you wish. Hope you like it!

okay so since a couple of people asked me already, here is my tutorial on how i color manga caps! this way is pretty simple as im still learning and trying new things. it’s a bit time consuming and you’ll need a basic understanding of photoshop, but overall it’s not very difficult!

the first thing is find a manga scan you want to use. this is the one im using its shishio from hnr of course

External image

before we do anything make sure you’re on RGB mode (image>mode>RGB color) otherwise colors wont show up. 

duplicate the background layer and make sure only the background copy visible

okay now for some cleaning and rendering stuff! luckily this particular mangacap is already pretty well cleaned, but if not i usually adjust levels, or duplicate, filter>blur, and multiply a layer on top which should take away any pixelated icky things. also remember the stamp tool is your friend. sorry i wont really go into detail with all this ahh

theres a bunch of different ways to render, but what i personally think is the easiest for manga caps is using color range! just click on the rectangular marquee tool and then right click on the image and choose color range. now click on a white part of the cap and press ok.

when it’s all selected, hit ctrl + x to delete the background. crop out everything else you don’t need and it should look something like this: 

External image

erase (or select and cut with lasso/pen tool) anything you don’t want. here i erased everything in the background and i usually erase the little grey shading spots around the neck, eyes, nose, and mouth as well as a personal preference.

tip: if you want to make sure you got everything, put a dark/black layer underneath! (new layer>edit>fill>black)

External image

HECK YEAH NOW ITS COLORING TIME !! pat yourself on the back you’ve done well im proud of you bby 

(here is a color palette i made especially for shishio a little while after i made this tutorial. you can grab skin tones and stuff from there idk)

first, you have to duplicate your background copy again. you should have two background copies now. layers are important !!! each thing you color will have a new layer between the two background copies 

External image

i usually start with the skin. i use a normal hard brush and erase any mistakes as i go. i just noticed i picked a horrible color but its okay because you can always fix colors later again, using a black layer behind is pretty convenient to see if you’ve missed anything or if you’re coloring outside of the lines

External image

you would normally repeat this step for hair, clothes, etc. (also another remind to make sure you make a new layer underneath the previous for each thing you color !!!!!) but since shishio’s hair is already colored in, you’ll find that photoshop won’t let you color over it. now you’re going to need to hold on to your anime plushies and body pillows, because things are going to get a bit complicated 

if you want to color the actual hair, make a layer above the background copies and set it to screen. however, im only coloring in the highlights so you would do the same thing except set it to multiply.

External image

the eyes will also be above the background copy. set it to multiply.

once you have a base color for everything, it’s time to shade!

make a new layer above the layer you’re going to shade and create a clipping mask. this basically makes it so it will only show up on things you colored on this previous layer (try coloring a spot outside of the skin, you’ll see what im talking about)

External image

i cant really explain how to shade, since im not very good at it myself but after you figure out where the light source is, just try to picture where the shadows will be.

External image

im sorry i dont have a tablet but i tried my best with my mouse to show you how/where i shaded

 i used a soft brush (0% hardness) with 55% opacity to shade around the forehead, neck, nose, ears, jaw, and clothes

External image

NOW ITS COMPLETE WOOHOO YOU DID IT !!!

resize to 500px and add backgrounds, textures, adjustments and stuff or throw a psd or two on there to make things nice as such:

External image

extras: (don’t ask me why i do this, it just looks cool okay) flatten all the layers excluding the psd and make two copies —

filter>blur the first copy and set to multiply
set the second copy to screen

change the opacity according to what you think looks best

this was my final product:

i hope this helped at least a little! im sorry im not very good at explaining, ive never done a tutorial before, but if you have any questions or need some clarification please ask. good luck!~

GALLERY OF SIDEBAR BACKGROUNDS

I’m sure anyone who has ever tried to customize a theme or code a theme has come across the struggle of finding a nice image to use as their sidebar before.

That’s why to help you out, I’ve compiled an image gallery with over 400+ images sorted into animals, city, food, miscellaneous, nature, and people categories.

I’ll be updating this whenever I come across big images (at least 500px in width) on my dashboard so the number is definitely 400 and counting.

Hope this helps! Please like/reblog if using.

I have to face one of the Organization’s member’s soon. I might not survive the fight. And if I do, it might be because I gave in to the darkness.

anonymous asked:

hey! awesome themes. i really like the simplicity of your work. do you, by any chance make ones for (just) 540px posts (and quarter-photosets of 268px) (or really tumblr's default post sizes for all kinds of photosets)? all the themes available that i've tried that have the 540px option kinda end up at 500px still, or looking resized/pixelated. alternatively, do you know of a theme-maker who makes these?

hey ! i don’t know of anyone who makes only 540px themes off the top of my head, sorry. to my knowledge all 540px themes are looking blurred right now because tumblr’s gone and fucked something up, because it’s tumblr and they literally can’t go one week without doing something stupid! ugh
