Flat lay graphic tutorial

I’m going to teach you how to make this, which is a slightly altered version of a panel from my most recent graphic:

So I started making these graphics a while ago, and although a few people have asked me how I make them, I’ve only ever given really simple instructions so this is going to be a more detailed walk-through on how I make these graphics. Basically, I’m obsessed with them, I’ve made several variations (x, x, x, x) so there isn’t just one way or a correct way to make them.

anonymous asked:

hey.. I've been wanting to make a webcomic for a VERY long time now, and I just have one problem. I dont think i believe in my own abilities to draw well enough so I dont know if I want to put myself out there, so I thought I'd ask YOU because i really like your art. How do I do it? (It's fine if you don't answer, I don't wanna waste anymore of your time.)

OHHH- WEBCOMICS ARE THE BEST :D!

Well, thank you first up, I like my art too!

The thing is, I’m sure you’ve noticed, as you grow and draw new things and improve, your style might change, the way you shade, everything. Eventually those first few pages or pictures you’ve drawn don’t look as awesome as your current stuff- and that’s OK! I’ve seen that happen with loads of comics I’ve followed, it doesn’t make the old stuff bad, but it is amazing to see everything change so much.

Zombie Hunters, Looking for group, Not a Villain and Questionable content are all amazing webcomics that gradually change style, and the way they tell the story :D

Here, this is one of my first comics on tumblr. (ok why does Sans look the exact same as I draw him now??? lol)

The thing is, if you don’t start, you won’t be able to find out if you can do it. I’ve had a habit of starting comics and never finishing them because I would get stuck or bored with them. But eventually I finished one, and although no one cared for it, I was incredibly proud of myself, it felt so good to finish it!

The second comic I’ve ever finished was “Don’t Come Back” here on tumblr.

So it’s mostly about starting, and getting through it, I tend to find the Point A to B parts the hardest. “How do I get this character over here??” So planning out EVERY small detail is important, even if you’re not sure you’ll use it in your story, it might help!

Anyway! I’d recommend grabbing some tutorials about comics, BOOKMARK THEM, and reread them sometimes! I revert to laziness or I sometimes forget how to panel my comics or pose the characters (This is mostly noticeable in the drunken comics) so even I reread tutorials frequently to refresh my memory :D.

This is my personal favourite tutorial

and my friend skyriazeth reblogs some great tutorials about all sorts of things!

I posted about this a few months ago but..

Old comic:

Recent comic:


Damn Papyrus, you’re so pretty~

Anyway, sorry for the wall of text, I hope you can start your webcomic! They are incredibly fun to do :D

text post gif tutorial

requested by @illegalwhite

In this tutorial I’ll specifically show you my processes when I create a text post gif like the one below (from here) but since I’ve been asked a few times now how I make gifs I figured I’d make it fairly thorough so that you can use it to make regular gifs as well.

please like/reblog this post if you find it useful ✌

tools:

  • kmplayer – to import frames
  • photoshop – for editing (i use cs5)
  • video/clip – with the scene you want to gif
  • print screen – to grab the text post

Also important if you want your gifs to look really good is to use high quality videos, I prefer 720p or 1080p, without subtitles. You can also sharpen gifs to make them look crisp, but I haven’t included that step in this tutorial as it isn’t vital to making text post gifs. Also, I’ll only briefly cover coloring this time.

NU KÖR VI!!!

Tutorial: “How to” Story Links

So, I got an ask from @josiesimblr, and I just decided to do a tutorial-ish post, or whatever you wanna call this, in case anyone is having the same issue, or just wants to know how to use the hyperlink tool on tumblr for your sim stories. It’s really simple! 

1. First, you will want to know where the link option is when you go to make a post. It is the little infinity looking symbol highlighted below. All you need to do to use it, is highlight the text or phrase of text that you want to make into a link. In this case we are just going to highlight the word “Beginning”. 

2. Secondly, you will need to get your link! To do that, just find the post that you need via your dash (in our tutorial example, the beginning post, or first post of your story). To get the url, just go to the top right corner of your post and hover, you will get a little dog-ear and if you click it, it will open a new page in a new tab on your profile. That will give you the url for that particular post. 

3. Copy the url from your newly opened post page.

4. Then paste the url into the hyperlink box on your new post. 

5. So now you have made a link! Just repeat this same process for “Next” and “Previous”, finding the corresponding posts you need to make your links work chronologically. When people use your links, they should now be able to move fluidly through your story, from episode to episode, in the order you would like them to be viewed. 

Formatting: I format mine as follows: 

Next | Previous | Beginning

I use the strike-through font on “Next” when I make a new story post, to indicate that this is the most current addition to the story. Then, when I make a new post, I go back to the previous and update “Next” to reflect the newest episode. You can format yours however you’d like! I just do little slashes in between because I think it looks neater xD (I am not sure how to make this slash on an American keyboard, so if you’d like those, just google which key combo to make it on the keyboard of your native language :D). 

I hope this is helpful? I’ve never made a tutorial before in my life LOL. I hope the pictures are useful xD if you have any more questions just message me, I’ll be happy to help if I sucked at explaining!

anonymous asked:

what program do you use to edit these videos? and what extended software do you use for the effects? I have to take a compulsory media module in uni and i'm struggling sb rn i wanna die please help ;; your edits are rad af 100/100 (ps. if you have some free time and make a tutorial it would be a ++!!!) send help sos

Well. Theres a lot I use tbh haha. I’ll try to break it down because I cant see myself making a tutorial anytime soon.. 

So first of all I use Adobe After Effects CC 2014. I got it when I bought my Mac as part of a package. But you can easily look up videos on youtube to find out how to download after effects for free. Just make sure to look at the comments and number of dislikes to see if its legit.

As for extended software I have several plug-ins that I use :

- Pixel Sorter (which I used for transitions on my Jungkook Trust Issues edit)

- Element 3D (which I use to make and animate text in 3D) 

- Plexus (which I use in my Zodiac Series)

Trapcode (which is amazing and allows you to create so much. Its hard to explain so I’ll leave a link here so you can see the possibilities if you’re interested.)

- Twixtor (extreme slow motion, also used in my Trust Issues edit)

- Twitch (does what it says on the tin haha. It creates shakes basically. I use it in this edit as transitions if you want an example) 

- Magic Bullet Looks (for colour correcting) 

- Red Giant Universe (which again has so many different options so I’ll leave a link here so you can see what its for. but I used one of the effects recently in my Jungkook Beautiful Cover edit to create that VHS effect)

andddd. I think that’s it. That’s all I can remember anyway. And everything I’ve learned is from YouTube tutorials and just messing around in after effects until I find something that works. Hope this helps and good luck editing! x

ch aesthetic tutorial

yeah so i’ve gotten a lot of compliments (thanks!) and tutorial requests about my aesthetic edits lately, so i decided to make one. boom. it’s really not that hard. i use photoshop, idk if this tutorial will work with other programs but you can try it out and let me know :)

Tutorial: Manipulating Backgrounds In Gifs

Disclaimer: I taught myself how to do this and I am 100% sure there are easier ways to do this effect, but I usually prefer to teach myself things like this. I really recommend looking for alternative tutorials on photoshop tutorial tumblr accounts such as itsphotoshop and yeahpsds after reading mine, not every tutorial suits a creator so it’s always a good idea to explore different methods!

spiritual-speckled-kitty  asked:

Hey! Since ya wanna talk about art, I wanna ask ya...how'd ya get so good drawing the hands of muscles of anthropomorphic characters? I've been practicing with that A LOT lately and I'm pretty rusty xC

Hi there!! Thank you so much for your question! Personally, I’m still learning a lot about arms and hands, and I would take everything I say with a grain of salt, because honestly I did some research one night when I got frustrated with my progress on both subjects, so for arms, I use the lightening bolt technique! 

(There is a full video about this along with a trick for foreshadowing on arms/legs since the technique isn’t so great for that aspect, but it’s great for any drawing if you want draw arms in general! Big shout out to Sycra, they have so many helpful videos for drawing! Go check out the channel!)

So with this technique, you literally connect the dots after drawing out the general gesture of the muscles, this gives you a better sense of proportion and get a better sense of the important things to get out of from the anatomy without having to dive too deeply into the science behind it. But I’d still highly recommend looking at references and continue to practice!

—-
The same goes for hands! Which is something I’m still struggling with! But with turtle hands, I’ve been drawing them for so long, so I feel like it’ll be okay to give out a pointer or two! Obviously, the best way to get a sense of how hands works is to sit down and sketch out our your own hand as a reference, it’s extremely helpful! 

Hands are a whole different story, but if you stick with basic shapes, it’s a good start! Also, don’t be afraid to get absolutely messy with your sketches! Sometimes the best way to handle things is to scribble until it eventually looks like something! As you continue to practice, you’ll eventually learn how to get those shapes and gestures that are worth keeping when you sketch!

(Also! Thumbs can be pretty tricky to keep track of, so a good reminder is to always step back and take a look at where you’ve placed the thumb because it can be so easy to misplace it on the wrong side of the hand. Which is why it’s a good trick to use your own hands as a reference if you’re not sure!)

Anyways! I hope this was somewhat helpful to you! If not, that video will surely be able to successfully show you how to handle the lightening bolt technique! Good luck on your art journey! :)

gif tutorial: colouring (*°ω°*ฅ)*

umm i was asked how i colour gifs sooo i’m now showing you how i make stuff from something like this

to this

to follow this tutorial, you will have to have general knowledge of how to make a gif on photoshop. if you don’t already, you can read an old tutorial that i made; since i don’t exactly gif like that now, you can ask for a new tutorial if you wonder what my current gif-making steps are.


note: the photoshop i use is not in english so let’s hope i get all the terms right


step 1: have a uncoloured, cropped, resized gif

refer to the one at the top of this post - that one is already sharpened & have the background freezed, which are something i do after colouring the gif. but this is a tutorial about colouring, and most people (i guess) sharpen their gifs & freeze the backgrounds before colouring, so it’s your choice!

in step 2-6, the adjustments that will be used are highlighted cyan, i.e. the ones i always use in gif-making. the yellow ones are adjustments that i use from time to time.


step 2: brightness/contrast, levels, curves, and exposure.

brightness/contrast: it is a very easy and basic filter to brighten/darken your image. in most cases, i leave the brightness positive (5 ~ 20), and contrast negative (-15 ~ -50).

levels: the panel with white background (the area with orange text) represents the input levels of the gif, which are the only options i adjust regularly. usually i just move the black and grey arrow for a bit. occasionally i move the white (well, light grey) one too but not this time. i always leave the output levels alone unless i’m making some special edits because they don’t match the ‘colourful’ style i go for, but that’s just me.

curves: the most common adjustments in the curves panel i go for look like these. how i do it:

(1) click the middle of the panel and drag it up slightly to lighten your gif. you get a smooth curve here.

(2) click somewhere between the point you just created and the bottom of the curve and drag it down, reaching the built-in light grey diagonal line. sometimes when i make gifs, this point goes exceed the diagonal. in this step the contrast of your gif is higher, and the upper part of the curve gets curvier. 

(3) click somewhere between the point you created in (1) and the top of the curve and, similar to (2), drag it down, reaching the light grey built-in diagonal line. sometimes when i make gifs, this point goes exceed the diagonal. in this step you tone down the highlights of your gif for a bit.

exposure: adjust the midtones (aka gamma, i believe) of the gif. i drag it slightly to the right (0.95 ~ 0.85) to make it brighter. if the gif is not bright enough, i often drag the exposure option to the right jjjjjuuust a bit. it adjust mainly the highlights. offset is something i rarely touch; same with the output levels, it doesn’t match the ‘colourful’ style i want. explore for a bit if you want!

at this point the gif should look like this:

i often move on even if i think the gif is still not bright enough. if it’s the case, i’ll fix it later!


step 3: vibrance

since the gif still looks boring grey-ish, i like to make the colours pop :^)

saturation adjusts all the pixels at the same time and makes the gif intensely colourful - i usually leave it alone, and adjust the vibrance option instead. i always place the arrow at the positive side (40 ~ 100). in the chinese version it’s called ‘natural saturation’ because it doesn’t adjust the pixels that are already colourful (or, vibrant) too much, so the whole image looks more natural.

their skin looks a bit rosier and phil’s shirt looks bluer here!


step 4: colour balance

now that the gif is more vibrant, you can look at the gif and identify colours from each other easier. generally, i prefer my gifs to include as many colours as possible, and not be some certain colours exclusively, so for me this part is an attempt to ‘correct’ the colours and make them as close to irl as possible. (it sounds like i’m lying looking at the final gif post but… ahhhhhh i shouldn’t have pick this gif to do the tutorial)

i’ve got next to nothing to explain in this part… basically i look at their faces and the wall and slide the arrows until i think the gif has got the most ‘correct’ colour. i always leave the highlights part unadjusted so it’s all 0.

welp i don’t think these colours are ‘correct’ enough but… i tried.


step 5: selective colour

this adjustment is to modify a certain colour tone without modifying the others. sometimes there are edits with the person’s shirt being changed to other colours than the original ones, it can be done here. in the following i’ll explain each colour i adjust in the order i usually go by:

yellows: it’s the first colour i select. i like rosy/peachy skin tones so usually i tune down the yellow marker all the way to -100% or like -50% to reduce the yellowness of the skin. (another reason why picking this gif to be an example is a mistake lmao) 

however dan’s wearing a yellow doge shirt here, i choose to drag the yellow marker to a positive value; for some reason the shirt look light as fuck and so not yellow here, i have to pull all the colour markers to an extreme and hope it work. it still doesn’t look as yellow as a doge should, so i just get mad and move on.

reds: i don’t like them wearing red because i can’t make red shirts redder without making their whole face blushing lmao (well i can always paint the layer masks but when they move a lot in the part i want to gif i just give up making effort). reds controls most of the skin areas, and i like rosy/peachy skin tones, so i slide cyan to the left and magenta to the right. i like them keeping some natural yellow tone too, so i slide yellow to the right. sliding black to negative value makes skin looks less shady.

magentas: rosy peachy lips and shadows, cyan to the left, magenta & yellow to the right.

greens: they wear nothing green here, so i just don’t care. (sometimes if i care enough, i make the green cushion and green stickers in the background greener.)

cyans & blues: while phil’s wearing a blue shirt, it’s grey-ish which is not allowed in my gifs, so i just drag the colour markers randomly and play around. creativity!!1

whites & midtones & blacks: don’t care. don’t even have them screenshotted. (for my mobile header, which is quite blue, i switch to blacks and slide cyan to the right & yellow to the left for a bit.)

ha ha it finally looks a bit like the final product ikr


step 6: more adjustments!

somehow it still looks slightly dull and not vibrant enough for me, so i add some more adjustment layers to fix it. you don’t have to follow what i exactly do here, that’s why i don’t add any translation here (jk i’m just sleepy zz):

curves:

layers:

selective colour: reds & yellows & cyans

after all the adjustments are added, the gif looks like this:


step 7: texture

you all remember the delicately decorated backgrounds for the gamingmas videos right? for example thisthis, and this (ignore my gif-making skills back then). now they’ve got nothing in the background, i dunno what you think but it looks so bleak to me :(

in addition, dan is the tanner one but he always look paler in gaming videos because he sits on the brighter side, near the window. if i don’t do something about this i feel uncomfortable.

anyway i always make the edge of my dapg gifs slightly darker on the edge since this year. you can add a pre-made texture on top of your gif, but i don’t have one, so i just… draw it every time i gif a dapg video. (it’s so lame and embarrassing saying it out loud but it’s already step 7 i don’t want to pick another gif and screenshot all the stuff again) how i do it:

add a layer above all the adjustment layers from step 2-6. set it to soft light or other mode you prefer, and set a low opacity. click the fx button so these setting applies to all frames but not the one frame you’ve seleted.

use a soft brush (i’ve forgot to use soft brush recently but it also works, just trickier). i’ve set the flow of the brush to around 21%, and brush size 157px. now paint the border with a dark colour (like black or deep blue).

when i paint the border, sometimes the brush goes over dan’s face but that’s okay because he should have been looking darker-skinned in gaming videos. however i always avoid painting on phil’s face because he’s already the darker one in the gif.

anyway this is the… thing i drew for this video, so if you don’t understand wtf i was talking about above, just download this, cover it on all the adjustments and set to a mode you like and keep the opacity of this layer low. it’s 540x258px and it works on most dapg videos:

(gfyhsduaidpjfhsda i’m embarrassing myself… but it’s 6am i just want to finish this and go to sleep)

the colouring part is finished!


this is what the psd file looks like when i finish the whole gif-making process. when i colour gifs, i simply add all the adjustments on top of each other and keep all layers at 100% opacity. you can change the layer mode and opacity, or even switch the order of adjustment layers to have different effects. but for me, i just add a new adjustment layer on top until i’m happy about how the gif looks!
