Jasper Storyboard Comparisons and Rankings

A comparison of Jasper storyboards inspired by evieisyourqueen/critically-bitter. Save two exceptions I chose boarders that provided a lot of Jasper content, at the very least a full scene’s worth. Katie and Lamar I didn’t include as they drew Amethyst disguised as Jasper. I didn’t know how heavily that influenced their drawings of Amethyst/Jasper in the episode so I didn’t include either of them. If they do board more for her or post more art of her I’ll probably update this list with them. Hillary wasn’t included as she hasn’t boarded Jasper at all, and unless I missed it or didn’t pay attention didn’t see enough art from her with Jasper to get a solid grasp on how she’d draw her.

All that said, let’s get this analysis started!

Colin Howard

I really like Colin’s Jasper! It’s fairly consistent and looks very nice. The arms are well defined and her jaw and neck look thick and powerful without seeming awkward. Said jaw is rounded but without looking too soft either. Her expressions are some of her best here, especially those smiles she gives. My favorite aspect is probably the hair though. It’s huge and fluffy, something about how Colin draws it gives it presence and feeling. All around a great Jasper.

10/10

Fun Fact- Colin also drew some of the early sketches for Jasper before her design was finalized!

Jeff Liu

While occasionally inconsistent looking, Jeff’s Jasper is still quite good. She reminds me of a Tiger a lot in this episode, fierce and intimidating. The hair seems to have less volume on the whole, but spikes up when she’s especially angry. The chin is either rounded or angular with her body a touch on the leaner side of Jaspers at times. I’m not always a fan of how he draws her mouth, but it’s a smaller complaint compared to other stuff we’ll be getting into… Another good one all said and done, if a touch inconsistent at times.

8/10

Joe Johnston

Another great Jasper! Her expressions are probably at their sharpest and most frightening here, just look at that grin! Her hair is really big here, though not in the same way as Colin’s. It really adds to her already massive size, which is always a plus. Her body type also seems to be just right here, not too small but not too thick either. The jaw looks more rectangular here compared to Colin’s rounder one. While it’s not my favorite, it’s certainly up there. 

9/10

Fun Fact- Jeff and Joe have also boarded Malachite the most so far!

Lauren Zuke

Here’s where it starts to fall flat a bit. The brief parts where Jasper is boarded by Lauren are… not great looking, to say the least. Looking at their sketches is a better indication of how their Jasper could look, but I’m still not a fan. Something about the torso feels off and the fact this is a leaner looking Jasper isn’t helping. The hair isn’t as big but certainly fluffy looking, The face has it worst here though, with the over all shape and the too big eyes making it look rather off compared to other Jaspers. At the very least it’s consistent, but it’s not helping much.

6/10

Paul Villeco

Surprise! Zuke’s Jasper isn’t my least favorite! That honor goes to the inconsistent and quite off model boarding of Paul Villeco, and my god does it show. All these are from different episodes and dear lord it’s bad. From the odd jaws and ridiculous proportions of The Return to the long neck and odd body shapes in Crack the Whip, it’s hardly ever looks good and looks ridiculous at worst. He has improved though and by Earthlings his Jasper manages to get some consistency, but it’s still a touch too lean and even the consistency falls apart once the corruption scene happens (though he also didn’t board that part entirely). It gains some points for saving itself at the end, but outside of that it’s my worst by far.

3/10

Fun Fact- Despite being my least favorite Paul Villeco actually boarded Jasper the most. Huzzah.

Raven Molisee

Now here’s a return to form! While some minor inconsistencies with the hands, hair, and teeth abound, this is still a great Jasper. A well proportioned and thick body, a strong jaw somewhere between Colin’s and Joe’s, nice looking hair on the whole and wonderful expressions, Raven’s Jasper makes me wish she drew her more on the episodes she had with her rather then Paul. All over a good Jasper, if lacking some sharpness on the whole.

8/10

Rebecca Sugar

Without a doubt my favorite Jasper. The hair looks wonderful, the right mix of volume and fluffiness. The body type is excellent, looking strong and well muscled but not leaning too far on the thick or lean side. The best part hands down has to be the expressions. While the eyes aren’t as sharp as I would prefer them Rebbeca never makes them feel too big and the range of emotions she gets on Jasper is amazing. Definitely the first person I draw from when I want to draw Jasper.

20/10

Fun Fact- In addition to never drawing Jasper with her helmet Rebecca also drew additional boards for Jasper in Chille Tid and Earthlings!

Bonus!

Amber Cragg

Amber hasn’t had a chance to board for Jasper much yet but I hope and pray she does soon. While some of the proportions look off and the hair not super consistent, Amber’s expressions are amazing on Jasper, in particular the detail on the teeth. More of Jasper’s huge canines in the art please. Now that she’s been upgraded to a storyboard artist maybe we’ll see some of her Jasper soon! Maybe? Please…?

anonymous asked:

Do you have any advice on managing lots of branching paths in a choose your own adventure game? Even things like remembering what has happened (using tags) and making use of those is really cumbersome!

There’s a lot of things you can do here to help keep things straight. Primarily, you need to keep everything as organized as possible, and that means taking a big problem and breaking it down until it is in pieces small enough to handle. How I would start is by creating an outline for each individual storyline from beginning to end by breaking it up into a flow chart of story beats. Each beat should contain relevant information like:

  • A list of characters involved in the scene
  • The scene location and relevant environment details (What does this area look like?)
  • All branching conditions and where the branches lead
  • How this scene handles the different branches that lead to this scene
  • A brief description of what happens during this scene
  • Any sort of other requirements for this scene (props, character models, voiced lines, environments, animations, etc.)

Then, based on how the separate plot lines interact with each other, I would tag the branches with unique tags so that I can see where they intersect from scene to scene. If the flowchart of connecting scenes starts looking too complicated, it’s a good sign that the story could probably use some cutting or simplifying.

Let’s go with an example. We’ll create a quest that has a dialogue, a choice, two mutually exclusive scenes that result from the choice (an optional quest branch), and then some results. Here’s a sample quest summary:

The player character meets an archer named Neelo who wishes the player to recover her bow from a nearby cave. The player goes to the cave entrance only to discover another character, a shifty bard named Desmal, already at the cave entrance. Desmal offers the player a sackful of gold for the bow, but only if the player kills Neelo as well since she doesn’t want to deal with Neelo trying to take revenge.

So let’s build a quest outline for this, shall we?

Here is an example of a simple breakdown of the quest progression. You can see how scene progresses to scene, showing all of the different possible paths by which the player arrives at the next scene from its predecessor. You could (in theory) add notes to each of these scenes for the important information for those scenes, and dress them up visually however you like. As an example, I differentiated the action and dialogue scenes with the different shapes of bubbles, and used different colored arrows to indicate mandatory transitions as opposed to those driven by player choices. Notice how the quest converges after the player makes the choice to speak with Desmal or not and, if so, whether the player chooses to accept the subquest. Let’s continue with the second half of the quest.

Then we can finish the quest up through these scenes. Fighting Neelo is an optional part of the quest, but only if the player has accepted Desmal’s quest back up above. As you can see, there are two clear paths that the player can take to the end of the quest. If we wanted to do so, we could expand the quest to allow the player to keep the bow, attack Desmal, or any number of other things. We could track the results of the quest at the end and use those values in another quest later on. 

The benefits to breaking up story beats in this way should be pretty clear. Each scene, be it an action or a conversation or whatever, is essentially a single self-contained block that has a finite number of ways of entering, a finite set of results, and one major thing that happens inside it. While there’s no limit to the complexity one can pile into a single scene, resist the urge. Keep scenes simple and straightforward. Maintain the purpose of the scene, or it won’t have the right effect. I can then add all of the relevant details to that specific scene and know exactly what is needed to build this scene without needing to keep the entire storyline straight in my head. All I need to remember is what variables are important entering the scene, the scene details itself, and how the scene will determine where to direct the player next. Because it’s self-contained, I have a discrete chunk of work that I can do by myself or hand off to another designer. Once it is complete, I can connect it to the other completed scenes to form a whole quest. 

By keeping the storylines as self-contained flowcharts of interconnected scenes, I can easily determine each storyline’s relative complexity and size at a glance. The more the storyline looks like a spider web, the more complicated it becomes. Furthermore, with some practice breaking scenes down and creating them like this, I can also start estimating how long a specific scene will take to complete. This means that I can take a look at an entire storyline and estimate, based on the number of scenes in it, how long the entire storyline will take to craft. I can put in scene budgets for storylines to keep them sane - a large or critical storyline might have a top end of 25 scenes, while a one-off throwaway quest would have to be done in under 10. Since I can presumably tell what my schedule looks like, I can then make some decisions like “I can make this bigger” or “This won’t fit, I need to cut something”. I can then determine which parts that can safely be cut, and where I can reference smaller self-contained storylines into larger ones for more engagement without adding too much complexity. 


Got a burning question you want answered?

IN CASE WE STILL HAD ANY DOUBTS. This is an ACTUAL SCREENSHOT TAKEN AT THE MOMENT HE’S PAYING FOR THE RING.

It EXPLICITLY says “Gold Wedding Ring” and it/they cost 768.94 Euros which is a little over $820. (I can’t make out the first word)

BINCH Y U LYING TO YOURSELF. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE BUYING, BOY

EDIT: A friend of a friend just pointed out something IMPORTANT! Yuri only bought 1 ring as a gift for Viktor as seen by the total on the receipt and the qty. That means that after that ring was purchased, Viktor bought the matching ring with his own money. This explains why Yuri looks at his hand so shaken when he has the ring placed on him. He only expected to give– not receive– and Viktor FUCKING DELIVERED. And Viktor didn’t do it under the fake pretense of “Good luck charm”. HE KNEW EXACTLY WHY HE WAS BUYING THIS RING

OMG THIS SHOW IS DESTROYING ME


CAN THEY BE MORE BEAUTIFUL


12/8/16 Update: I tweeted at Kubo in Japanese to ask her if she’s able to confirm whether or not the rings were both bought by Yuri or if Viktor bought the second one as a surprise to him, so stay tuned! Crossing my fingers and hoping for a reply!


12/8/16 Edit:
Someone said it could say “Pink Gold Wedding Ring” which looks nothing like the rings that were bought, so I’m not sure. At this point, even with all the pausing and squinting, it’s impossible for me to say.

Someone else said that Yuuri bought both, which was what my original thought was before I was challenged, but it’s hard to say right now. I went back and reanalyzed the scene and noticed that all the rings have individual prices, none of which seem go under 440 Euros (although it is obviously a little blurry the further the rings are from the shot), so if he bought the set, he would at least be paying 880+ Euros which is why I’m leaning towards 1 ring. In addition, even rings of the same set have different prices (presumably because of the band size?) so given that they are both male and would require rings on the larger end, I can see them costing just a bit more. 

Second, one of the lines in the translation on Crunchyroll is completely wrong and misleading.

The full speech Yuri gives Viktor after giving him the ring is:
“今まで、ありがとうございます。これ以上ぴったりくるもの思いつか なくて。でも、あの…明日からがんばるね…その… 御呪いよ。”

Imamade, arigatou gozaimasu. Koreijou pittari kurumono omoi itsukanakute. Demo, ano… ashita kara ganbaru ne… sono… omajinai yo.

Which translates roughly to: “I couldn’t think of anything more perfect than this. But, um… I’ll try my best from tomorrow (onwards) so… that’s… (a) good luck charm.”

Crunchyroll adds a translation line of “Tell me something for good luck too” which is incorrect. Yuri does NOT request anything from Viktor, which is why I was so convinced that what Viktor did next was completely improvised and on his own with no prompt from Yuri. That, along with Yuri’s extremely shaken expression upon realizing what Viktor is now doing/did (take out the matching ring) sells me on this.

It’s possible Viktor bought the ring right then and there as Yuri purchased his (he could’ve spoken to another employee and be like, get me the matching ring to that customer’s), as Yuri looked about for the one he wanted, but it’s hard to say at what point this happened IF it’s true that Yuri only bought 1. I GUESS WE’LL FIND OUT.

12/13/16 Edit:
Found two great new posts that support my theory of Yuuri having only bought 1 ring.The first (and most definitive) post can be read here

It discusses the price of the gold rings and how the tax added on top of it will bring you up to a total closest to the price shown on the receipt. Initially I had noticed the price of the gold ring myself but since I noticed it was only 600+ euros and not the 760+ shown on the receipt, I disregarded it, not thinking to account for tax which is so simple that I feel silly! In the comments made to someone on my original post, I also talk about how Yuri saying “Those two” are in reference to two styles of rings he was trying to decide between.In addition to this, if you assume that gold rings had two different prices (as was shown by the shots of all the other rings) and factor the fact that he could’ve bought the cheaper ring (which again, given the shota of the other rings is roughly around 40 dollars cheaper) the ring becomes 609 + 21% = 736.89 which JUST misses it but if you consider Yuuri’s foreign transaction fee (since he is purchasing outside of Japan) a 4% charge brings us MIGHTY closee at 767.45 

All that would really change the numbers a bit is what percentage Yuuri’s card charges per transaction (since it could really be anything between 3-5% realistically, depending on the card, if there is any at all) and which ring he bought, since I already theorized that the different prices were due to different band sizes and the slight difference in price would likely change depending on how small (or big) he would have to go down from the display size. 

The second post is here

Discusses where Viktor got HIS ring from to give to Yuuri. I do support this a lot because if this is the case, it implies Viktor was going to propose on his own anyways, which is what I always believed, given that Yuuri is definetly caught by surprise since he didn’t expect anything back, and is also ROMANTIC AF.

anonymous asked:

yooo glad to hear you're feelin' better and ready to accept requests again ^-^ So could I request how Sombra, Reaper, and Widowmaker would do if a young child was brought into Talon, either because they have exceptional combat or tech related skills Talon wants to exploit or they're being held there as a long term hostage to ensure someone's cooperation? Like how would they interact with the kid, if at all? (sorry if the asks a bit long ;-;)




An agent picks the child up from kindergarten, but it’s Widowmaker who sits in the back of the car, a small handgun cradled in her hands that the girl eyes both frightened and awed.

“Do you work for my mama?” she asks as she fastens her seatbelt as if she’s being picked up by random men in black suits every day. The words stranger danger evidently mean nothing to her.

“It is more accurate to say that your mother works for us.” Widowmaker says. At least now she will, she adds silently. The agent lets the autopilot drive and while the car pulls out of the school’s parking lot together with half a dozen of other parents with their children, he turns around and waves his phone.

“Lets take a photo so your mommy won’t worry, alright?” he suggests and whatever else the child may be, camera shy she is not. She makes faces at the camera, makes the agent snap picture after picture, usually with Widowmaker somewhere in the background although at least once she sits on her lap and pretends to brush her hair.

“You could braid it,” the girl says and Widowmaker, whose patience for people who are not targets or her handlers runs low at the best of times, yanks her hair out of the child’s grasp.

“I don’t want to braid it.” she says and hopes that is the last of it.

A BIT OF META ON SHERLOCK’S RELATIONSHIP WITH IRENE AND MOLLY

@scciopath

So I was re-watching A Scandal in Belgravia, as you do, and I got hooked on one little detail. So, for Molly, I did some research before on Louise Brealey’s body to make sure of her precise height, measurements, weight etc. And it’s very fascinating to me what my mind came up from this point on. Here are my two cents on Sherlock and two females that were shown as his romantic interest; two females the carry the most importance. Or The Woman and The One Who Counted.

glisean  asked:

Could I ask which program you use for your pixel art? Just picking up using graphics gale but am not happy with the palette settings. Also how do you choose the canvas size you work with and the appropriate scale for objects and characters?

1. Software for pixel art

I use GIMP. But it doesn’t matter too much.

Sometimes I’ll use Photoshop for its better animation tools. Although some GIFs are easier to edit using GIMP’s more raw system (it uses layers for animation frames).

If you want to check out GIMP, I made a tutorial about it: GIMP Pixel Art Tool Setup Tutorial

2. Canvas size

Choosing canvas size for me has evolved over time. TL;DR is that it is always based on the context (how the work is going to be used/displayed and your personal quirks). Examples:

Physical print size

Tribute is 660x900, because that was a round number that fit nicely on the magazine cover for which it was made. (Nicely = I imagined how big I wanted the physical pixels to be.) 

For the scale I looked at my inspirations at the time (eBoy, Army of Trolls, PixelFreak) and simply chose something similar. I set people height to 24px and created a composition of rooms, hallways and shafts that would look nice assuming that 25 pixels ≈ 2 meters.

As you can see I made a reference box for the size of a human (to the right of the doors), which I moved around the scene and pixel all objects relative to.

Traditional display resolutions

You will often find pixel art works done at 320x240px size since that was the screen size of many DOS and Amiga games. It’s nostalgia.

In my case, being obsessed with the British home computer ZX Spectrum, it’s 256x192 pixels.

At one point I wanted to make a ZX-styled scene from the movie Speed Racer. To match its widescreen aspect I simply put two ZX Spectrum screens together for the 512x192 final image (8:3 ratio).

I liked the super-wide proportions a lot so I made Pixel China Mountains the same. It all goes back to liking the ZX Spectrum.

Desired display size 

If you want pixel-perfect images on Tumblr, you have to size them to the exact width of the dashboard (500px before October 30, 2014, 540px today). 

To avoid cropping or image scaling I started doing pieces at 250px size to fit perfectly on the then 500px-wide feed at x2 scale.

After Tumblr’s change to 540px, I started doing 270px wide pieces. :) It’s a nice number for pixel art. Depending on how big you want the pixels to be you can set the canvas width to:

  • 270px (540/2)
  • 180px (540/3) 
  • 135px (540/4)
  • 108px (540/5)
  • 90px (540/6)

Additionally, the biggest size you can display on the dash is vertical (portrait orientation) at 2:3 ratio, so these days my final display target would be 540x810px (canvas at 270x405px). I know at least mazeon​ also sets things up this way (he usually goes for 300% magnification on a 180x270px canvas).

For complete reference, current pixel perfect sizes are:

  • Tumblr: 540x810.
  • Twitter: 506x1195 for the main feed. Only the middle 253px will be shown before user clicks on it.
  • Facebook: 470x470. However, make it just one pixel higher and Facebook will scale the height down to 394px (so all images > 470px will display at 394px high).

3. Scale

Scale controls the tradeoff between the smallest items you can represent and the size of the scene you’re trying to show (given a fixed canvas size).

The smaller you go, the more abstraction you need to use, but a larger scene will fit into the same canvas. The bigger you go, the more details you can add, but the scene will show less physical space.

For example, I can draw a whole city with people as small as on the left, but I can only draw a part of a room using people on the right given 540px of space. 

To directly answer your question, “appropriate scale for objects and characters” will depend on the style, the scene and desired canvas size. So there’s no direct answer, you’ll just have to find something that fulfills all three variables for your illustration.

Or as Yoda would say:

“That which you seek, inside you will find.“

Retro

My last theory about “Room for Ruby” turned out to be correct so let’s cross our fingers on these ones too. (In case you haven’t seen the recent trailer, here it is.) These two don’t really connect, but if anyone has additional thoughts on how they could, please feel free to add it on in a reblog.

Theories under the cut because 1) spoilers and 2) sorta long post

Alec’s Joy Pov- There are 7.4 billion people in the world and each one of those people has emotions. There are all kinds of emotions to feel but the main ones; joy, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust are the ones we all feel the most. I’m one of those emotions and I belong to one of the most amazing kids in the world. Sure every ‘Joy’ say’s that about their kid but mine is actually true.

I am the emotion of joy for an amazing boy named Alec Lightwood. Oh, man I can write a whole book about how amazing this kid is. He’s sociable, fun, loves being around people and always follows his heart… or at least he would do all those things if I was in control.

As I said before, the brain consists the emotions Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust. All the emotions work together but there’s always one emotion that is the leader of everyone else. Can you all guess who is the leader of Alec’s emotions? I can tell you it’s not me.

organanation  asked:

Carrison prompt: They are having dinner at Carrie's on a Friday with Mark and Mark keeps suggesting card games or running lines or dessert and Harrison and Carrie try increasingly desperate measures to get him to go home so they can be Carrie-and-Harrison-on-the-weekend.

Thanks for the fun prompt, Em! This was so cool to write!! I hope you like it :))

***

Carrie’s already on her third glass of cheap wine when Mark finally puts down his fork and knife. She thought he’d never finish his dinner.

“Oh, it’s only nine!” he states excitedly, as he glances at his watch. “What do you guys say, should we get some cards and play something?” he waggles his eyebrows at Harrison and Carrie, though none of them seem very enthusiastic about his offer.

“Oh shucks, I don’t have a deck, sorry!” Harrison exhales, thankful for little Carrie saving them both from another hour with Mark. He looks at Harrison, who mockingly adds:

“I forgot my travel size one, too. How irresponsible of me.” She giggles behind her napkin and Mark blushes.

“That’s fine, let’s run lines instead!” Carrie gets up and takes her and Mark’s plate to the kitchen, leaving Harrison to fend for himself this time. “Yeah, we have that big scene coming up!”

“Save the princess, shoot some guns and fly a ship, that’s it. Not much to run, Mark.” Harrison is getting seriously annoyed with Mark and his incessant need to stay with them, especially on a Friday night, dammit. Mark seems very disappointed, but he still smiles.

“Hey, I reckon the princess saves you moonjockeys!” Carrie shouts from the kitchen, though it’s not too far away. Mark laughs, grateful for some of the awkwardness to be eased. He couldn’t possibly understand why Harrison was being such an ass tonight.

“You’re right!” Mark shouts back, in a sweet sweet tone. Harrison gets up and picks his plate up as well, while his friend chugs the rest of his wine. He heads to the kitchen, hoping that Carrie has come up with a miraculous plan to evict Mark quickly and effectively.

“Please tell me I get to see you naked in less than ten minutes.” Her eyebrows raise in astonishment at his bluntness. “I waited a week and I’m not about to wait another night, for fuck’s sake.” He whispers, as though not to expose them to giddy old Mark in the living room.

“Settle down, honeysuckle.” she pats his chest while she finishes doing the dishes. He dries them and puts them away while Mark cleans out the rest of the living room.

“Can’t we just give him some of that vodka and let him pass out on the couch?” Harrison teases, running his hand from her back to her ass, kissing her neck.

“Uh, absolutely not.” He grips her waist, turning her around, enveloping her in his arms. His lips burn against hers, all the desire he’s kept encased during the whole week inside of him flowing out. He’s never loved wine quite like when he kisses it right off of her lips. “Well, on second thought…” she mumbles in between kisses. He picks her up and sits her on the counter. She almost bangs her head on the cupboard, but he thankfully holds her neck and buries her face onto his chest. Her perfume is intoxicating, especially after five days of abstinence. He moves slightly to the left, closing the cupboard door, causing her to move with him, a pan falling on the floor. The noise makes them stop.

“Hey guys, everything okay?” Mark asks, concerned, from the living room. “Do you need help?”

“NO!” they both scream at the same time, all too flustered.

“You’re not okay?” Mark stomps towards the kitchen.

“We’re fine!” she screams, frantically trying to clean the lip gloss from Harrison’s face.

When Mark enters the kitchen, Carrie runs and hugs him: “It’s getting late, I really should get some sleep.”

“But we haven’t even had dessert!” Harrison shakes his head. Not this again.

“Mark, she wants to sleep.” He’s impatient, nothing like Carrie’s ever seen.

“Come on, now.” Carrie shoots a killer look at Harrison before she leads Mark away to the door. “Sorry about him, don’t know what happened.”

“I know how Harrison is. It’s okay.” Mark kisses her on the cheek. “Speaking of, shouldn’t he be going too?”

“Oh, he just hum…” she looks around, trying to find a feasible excuse. “He…”

“I just called a cab, it’ll just take a minute to get here.” Harrison steps in, placing a possessive hand on the small of her back. It shakes her to the core.

“Fine, good night.” Mark finally leaves and they can hardly believe it.

He spins her around once more and she melts into his embrace. He kisses the sensitive skin of her neck and breathes her in. She moans into his ear. “Now, where were we?”

changes - Ian

A request in which you’re friends with Ian on a road trip; then you are ‘forced’ to share a bed…

***

“Hey, [name]…”

It was late night, just you and Ian sitting on his porch, sprawled onto your back—the chill air brought goosebumps onto your skin. You hear his voice like in a dream but immediately respond with an “Yeah..?”

“Let’s go on a trip.”

You slowly turn your head towards him, staring at him in confusion. “On a trip?”

“Yeah!” he’s watching the starry sky, not even daring to look at you—but there’s a fond smile of longing on his face. Like he’s envisioning the whole trip before his eyes. “Just me, you and the car. We don’t know where we’re going, but we’re keeping on moving forward.”

‘Just me and Ian?’ you think, hear rate picking up. ‘Alone…’

You didn’t mind that at all.

“What do you say, [name]?” the handsome bespectacled boy glances at you, his smile so beautifully glinting in the moonlight. It made your cheeks go flaming red. “Do you want to come?”

‘How can I say no to you, Ian?’

“Yes…”

Anon: Hello can you please do a fanfic when Dan and the reader are actors and are on the set of the movie and ends in smut please? I love all your writing btw :)

Aw, thank-you love :) i hope this is okay and I’m sorry I’ve taken so long xxoo

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You had never been more excited. I mean, sure you had acted in movies before, even playing the part of the main character, but it was your co-star that had you most excited this time.
You had admired him for years, his amazing acting skills, the way he recited each line perfectly and each word laced with the perfect emotion. And lets not forget his tall, slightly tan body with his dark fringe and chocolate eyes.

“y/n!” The producer of the film called out to you, pulling you from your daze. You quickly made your way over to him

“y/n, I wanted you to meet your co-star before we start filming, considering we are starting with a rather intimate scene” Pj, the producer explained. Your stomach swirled at the thought of getting intimate with him.

“okay, sounds great” you reply, smiling. Pj tells you where he is, giving you directions before wondering off.

Your feet lead you to a closed door. You take a few deep breaths, fixing your outfit and hair before finally knocking.

“Come in!” A smooth voice calls from inside.

Your hand shakes as you twist the door handle and push the door open. Your eyes wonder around the messy room until they land on him. He stands from the sofa he was sat on, placing down some papers before walking over to you, his tall figure slightly intimidating.

“h-hey… Im Y/n, Pj suggested meeting you before we start filming…” you explained

“Of course, I’m Dan Howell” he smiled as he held his hand out to you. You took hold of his hand, the size overtaking your own in the most perfect way.

“I really admire your previous works” You compliment while shaking his hand

“thank-you so much… I’m really looking forward to the first scene now” Dan mumbled the last part, but you still heard

“what do you mean?” you question, not realising how embarrassed you’d make him.

“oh.. I just.. well, your really beautiful and.. god, i wasn’t expecting you to hear that” he stuttered as a crimson red surfaced the skin on his cheeks.

“thank-you…” now you were blushing too as you smiled down at your shoes

Before conversation could continue, you were both called on to set.

<><><><><><><><>

“Quiet on set! Scene one, take one! action!” The director called, the camera’s now rolling as everyone went silent.

Both Dan and Yourself said your lines before it eventually came to the intimate part of the scene.
Dan’s hand cupped your cheek and his lips slowly but surely connected with your own. As instructed by the script, the kiss deepened after a few seconds. You felt Dan’s lips form a smirk

“Cut!” the director stopped the scene and you and Dan pulled apart

“Howell, no improvising. There was no smirking in the script” the director lectured, and Dan’s cheeks when noticeably redder.

“Scene one, take two! Action”

A number of takes went by and you couldn’t deny how turned on you were. Following the script, Dan lifted you up onto the sink behind you, spreading your thighs and standing between them while your lips continued to move with each other perfectly. Dan shuffled closer, his crutch pressing against your own, and the feeling of his arousal sent a shock through your body making a moan-like whimper escaped your lips… that wasn’t scripted…

“cut! 2 hour break.” the director stated, clearly aware of your uncomfortable situation.

You quickly jumped down, past Dan and ran to your dressing room. How could you go back out there? That was the most embarrassing moment of your life.

*knock knock*

Oh great… It’s probably a crew member wanting to tease you.

“come in…” you groan, refusing to look up from your phone.

“I just wanted to make sure you were okay… you ran off pretty quick” the smooth sound of Dan’s voice filled the room. Your eyes shot up to see him closing the door behind his back and walking over to you.

“uh..yeah. I-I’m fine… I’m really sorry for.. you know” You couldn’t even form a clear sentence, your embarrassment being too much.

Dan stood beside you, leaning back on a table yet still being taller than you.

“You don’t need to be sorry” he assured you with a smirk on his beautiful face.

“I’m just so embarrassed…” you mumbled quietly

“well… if it helps… I was struggling to hold back some moans…” Dan admitted

“And well, I’m pretty embarrassed too… I mean, I had to walk past everyone like this thanks to you…” He continued, pointing down and bringing your attention to his crutch.

It felt like a flame shot through your entire body, your eyes landing on his jean clad erection. You didn’t know how to answer. You could barely bring yourself to look up into his eyes.
Dan stood up straight, moving so that he stood in front of you before lifting you up and placing you on the table, resting his big hands on your thighs with his face just inches away front yours.

“Maybe we could help each other out?” he whispered into your ear, sending shivers down your body.

You couldn’t find the right words without screaming yes, so instead you placed your hand on the back of his neck, pulling his head down and placing your lips on his own. Your lips worked together perfectly and soon enough Dan’s tongue was running along your bottom lip asking for entrance.
Dan’s lips travelled down to your neck, sucking and nipping at the skin and making you gasp.

“we better not wrinkle your costume” he says while pulling down the zip at the back of the dress.

“or yours” you add as you begin to undo the buttons of the dress shirt he was wearing.

You continued to strip each other until you were both only in underwear. Dans hips meeting yours as he ground his arousal onto your clothed core.
His long, skilful fingers danced along your skin, eventually finding your panties and diving in. You gasped out as his fingers ran up your wet folds, collecting your juices before rubbing figure 8’s onto your clit.

“your so wet baby, who did this?” Dan question, his voice husky

“You did Dan”

He removed his fingers, bringing them to his mouth and moaning at the taste.

“you taste so sweet”

He then tugs at the sides of your panties, you lift your hips to help him remove them from your body. He looks over your bare form, groaning in approval before tugging down his own boxer briefs. His erection springs free, hitting his lower abdomen.

“Do you want this sweetheart?” he asks as he strokes his hard member

“Please Dan. Yes” you reply.

He rubs the tip of his cock up and down your folds before slowly thrusting in. it takes you a moment to adjust to his size before he begins slamming into you relentlessly.

“fuck y/n… so fucking tight” he moans out.

The room fills with the sound of skin against skin, ragged breathing and pleasureful moans. Your fingers rake down his back and shoulders while he bites and sucks at your neck and chest.
You could feel yourself getting close, and so could Dan. He suddenly picked you up, moving to a sofa and sitting down.

“I want you to ride me baby” he almost commands

You straddle him, slowly sinking down onto his cock. You roll your hips as Dans fingers dig into your sides, guaranteed to leave bruises. You bounce up and down on his hard cock, moaning out his name while he kneads your ass with his hands and moans out dirty sentences.

“fuck… Dan- so close” you moan out, knowing you cant hold on much longer

“me too baby”

Dans hips begin thrusting up to meet yours, bringing even more pleasure. One of his hands moving down to play with your clit.

An electric shock shoots through your body as orgasm hits you. You cant help but scream out Dans name as you come all over his cock, only to be followed by Dans cum filling you up as he also moans your name, mixed with a string of cuss words.

“This… has definitely been.. the best movie I’ve worked on” Dan states between deep breathes, causing you to giggle. He smiled before bringing his lips to yours in a long and passionate kiss.

“agreed”

“But you should probably go to hair and make-up before we go back” he smiles while admiring the hickeys he left on your neck.

In what is being heralded as the biggest, boldest move in the franchise’s 57+ year history, Mattel’s flagship and household fixture “Barbie” announced today (January 28, 2016) that they would be expanding their Fashionista line to introduce three new body types that will be sold alongside their svelte “Original”. They are “Tall”, “Curvy”, and “Petite”.

In recent years, with the rising popularity of doll lines highlighting and celebrating the unique differences among people in our world (like Mattel’s own Monster High), Barbie’s popularity (and sales) have seen significant declines… enough so that, behind the scenes within the company, an initiative to revamp the legendary doll; virtually, from the ground up. Within the company, this push to redefine and rediscover Barbie’s essence and her place in the modern world was code-named Project Dawn. What you see above is the culmination of that work; 4 body types, 7 different skin tones, 22 different eye colors, and 24 individual hairstyles (to say nothing of face sculpts).

Anyone who’s followed us for a significant amount of time know that I (Mod Ren) am a huge fan of fashion dolls… So, naturally, I have a lot to say about this development…

Tutorial: Gif Making + Colouring

Hey everyone! I was asked by davincisdemons if I could make a colouring tutorial (thank you by the way! you guys are great!), so here it is.

Things to take in consideration:

  1. I’ve never done a tutorial in my life, please bear with me;
  2. I use Photoshop CS6;
  3. I also still use tumblr’s old dimensions, but that probably won’t be very relevant to this;
  4. English is not my first language;
  5. I’m still learning; I’m not an expert; there are a lot of ways to do this (probably better than mine);
  6. There will be a ludicrous amount of the words click and select;
  7. This will be long.

Alright, on with it. How to go from this:

To this:

Why you should ship Finnlo

As you might guess from this url, this is a Finnlo blog.  Despite this ship being arguably the most quintessential fan favorite ship of the film in the tradition of Drarry, Thorki (which eventually become Loki X every other Avenger), every male anime hero X every male anime villain, and whatever Batman X Joker and Superman X Lex Luther are called (not kidding, these are things), this ship is virtually ignored, with a fic number not even breaching the three digits on Ao3, a nearly dead tag here on Tumblr, few enough pieces of fanart that I easily reblogged all of it, and only four Finnlo-specific blogs (the other three), including this one.  Considering nearly every other ship in this fandom featuring main characters has fic numbers in the ten-thousands, tags you could refresh every second, several tons of pieces of fanart, and dozens of dedicated blogs, this seems very unusual, especially for one that, as I and previous posts have stated, fits so many of the marks for popular ships.  Some other shippers out there have made sociological analyses about why so much of the fandom is so willfully ignoring this obvious ship, but that’s not what I’m talking about today.  Today, I am here to convince you to join me by pointing out all of the great things Finnlo has going for it:
