i wanted to make another palette


I could hear
all those things
you ran from
with every song
you released
living your dream

you didn’t need
to play your
albums in
reverse to hear
the taunting
of your demons

I grew up
I cradled your
songs close to
my chest
I knew I wasn’t
the only one

that felt numb
that watched the sun set
that wanted something
rather than nothing
to matter

I wish we could’ve found
a new palette of colors
that just weren’t a collection
of shit grey so maybe the world
wouldn’t need rose colored glasses
just so it can make another rotation
just so the fingers of the sun
could tighten it’s grip out of love
rather than anger

I hope you slipped calmly
beneath the waves when
you decided to let go
of the edge you so
desperately clung

I’m sorry that your armor broke
I’m sorry that you were the only
one who could repair it
I’m sorry that your symphony
played it’s final notes in
the middle of battle

you may have already felt
like a ghost in your final
hours but we never lost
sight of the spirit you let
spill from your eyes with
your honest lyrics
your highest notes

you felt the weight of
a thousand worlds for
so long that anyone
could understand
why you would
it to insanity

you don’t need to apologize
I understand that these plans
we make can be written in blood
washed away with the mud
of uncut clouds
leaving us with more questions
of subjects we thought to be
experts on

I hope you didn’t scream at yourself
I hope you finally felt like you won
I hope you can walk to what you
always wanted when you wake up
on whatever road you travel next

I fucking care that your flickering
light went out amongst a sea
of dimmer specks,
even though
you might feel you didn’t shine
as brightly as you did
so many
used you to guide us
shining brighter
than Polaris did in
a world without the pollution
of smog traced neons

I’m sorry that you lost books
of stories when you lost track
of your scars
those consequential sharp
edges are wounds some of us
share as we trudge
this unmapped path

so we all continue forward
under this blanket of scars
we still listen to your words
hydrohelioizing your perfect

polarisized star

i was asked to make a tutorial on color and some on shading.

i might make another shading tutorial if this doesn’t answer everything.

the site paletton.com is helpful for finding what you want if you find it hard.

And sometimes you just go with what you feel in your heart. because that’s what art is.

good luck and have fun! hope this helped some!

Romance Card!!! I didn’t want to make it like overly romantic, at least not this one, more implied and “quiet”. (You can’t see it well in the small version but Dorian’s wearing his coin as a bracelet). I also wanted them to be in more casual attire, but it ended up dulling the color palette quite a bit (especially on Cullen) and no colors really worked in the background. :(  X_X Anyway, I think I’m going to do another more “romantic” version as well because I can never draw too much of them. Then I think I’ll move on to Alistair or Zevran? Suggestions?


THIS YEAR’S ART SUMMARY! this year i somehow managed to complete an 80+ page comic book, another album, and well over 100 full painted portraits and original pieces.

i didn’t do as many full paints of comic pieces, because i could feel myself hitting a wall. my color palettes were getting so vibrant that some things were getting too busy, or a bit lost in translation, so i decided to tone it back. i wanted things to look more surreal. like, things that shouldn’t be alive that somehow are. i think i made some progress!

i pushed myself really hard this year, though. along with keeping up with vending, SM, and health, i find i did have a number of shortcomings, but i’m pretty dang proud of what i was able to accomplish :’v

Hi guys!! , Today I want to show a very late character, I had already announced months before

(but  I could not choose a color palette things complicated) but I finally bring another of my characters from the nextgen, he is zacarias Or zack, son of oskar and jackie, a calm and very sociable boy, natural charm and perfect smile, kind and understanding make him an ideal boy in the sight of many girls

Is Mona’s best friend and older brother of a little naughty girl named “skyler”

I will try to increase his story as I upload more drawings of him, I hope you like it X3 , i love you!!! <3

bashfully-alien  asked:

i love your art so much!! especially the outfits you design for characters!! i just wanna know, how did you get so good at making clothes for your characters? all of my character outfits end up looking so boring :'0

oh thank you!!

when it comes to outfit design i think the best way to approach it is the same way you would designing anything else; start simple and work your way up!

i always think about the silhouette i want an outfit to have before i get into details; not just the shape of the outfit as a whole, but what smaller shapes it’s going to carve out of the character’s body. belts or sashes, for example, are an easy way to split the torso into two separate shapes, and you can create variety by placing them higher or lower:

getting the basic shapes down gives you a helpful guideline to follow when getting into details.

i don’t want to harp too much on how to add detail over these shapes because i think a lot of it is up to personal flavor, but some things i keep in mind:

- don’t cover the outfit with detail; leave some empty spaces for the eyes to rest. you wouldn’t wear a striped t shirt and then throw on a striped jacket

- adding detail around the edges of shapes while leaving the body of the shapes less busy will further accentuate how the silhouette has been divided

- contrasting lights and darks in your palette is another way to make an outfit’s silhouette easier to read

hope this helps!!


Hopefully this helped in some way and was easy to understand!!

This is pretty simple so I might make another (attempted) tutorial with a larger palette and all! (I basically just used the skin and hair as an example but you could apply this to pretty much anything you want)

Another thing is that you should make sure you have a set palette before coloring a drawing- it’ll help you figure out what colors you’ll choose for shading/shadows further on.

You can easily mess around with different palettes that you make yourself or find on Pinterest/tumblr for practice- also playing with colors + different blending modes can help with lighting or cool effects!

(tagging @cough-syyrup so you see it! :0 thanks for the ask!!)

anonymous asked:

How do you pick your colors? I'm having trouble making nice palettes, you make everything look so soft and pastel

oh jeez

picking colors is rly fun for me so to start off it all depends on what kinda mood/setting u want ur art to be in (certain colors correspond to different moods, like smth sad can be desaturated and dark)

another important thing to note is contrast. i’m gonna use sonic as an example cuz i love him

his blue fur and yellow muzzle are Very different from each other in terms of lighting and color. i use complementary colors a lot. also use colors that are a bit close to each other on the spectrum

u can also reuse colors throughout ur art to give a sense of unity.

u can use paletton to choose an initial color palette and work off of that if u want? i dont use it at all but it seems cool. i learned some of this stuff from gigi dg’s art tutorial (u can search it up i think u can find it somewhere)

yakisoda  asked:

AAAAA UR ART IS REALLY FUCKING BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVE THE WAY U COLOURR AAAAAAAAA GO AL S [also would it b alright to have a smol tutorial on colouring,,?]


I usually just eyeball when I color and I try to experiment a lot!!!! I also color differently from artstyle to artstyle///// so im guessing you mean my most recent one?? I usually pick colors based on the mood and situation i want to portray and create palettes out of it.

I choose colors that I feel like associate with the emotions of the character and scene like
warm = cozy, happy, angry, etc
cool = cold, mystical, magical, sleepy, etc

Here’s a great video that explains the techniques on how to choose colors!! It covers up most of the basic things you need to know like saturation, shading etc. Heres another one (tho its quite longer though ^^;;)

I also try to make my contrast noticeble at a certain point to make it pop out more!! But it always depends on what im trying to achieve (ex. pure black shading + highley saturated flat colors = vibrant or thin colored lines + soft shading = cozy, soft , etc)

Heres a step by step on how I usually color: :OOO using laffy because he is perfect n i love him

This varies!!! depends on the mood u wanna set!! (warm or cool)

Create a folder and use clipping group Its waay easier to add shading and highlights

I used a blend of marker and pen here here (middle flat brush <33)

I hope this helps!!!

This is already a little late, but since I let myself tilt out of Inktober, I wanted to make up for it with another monthly drawing challenge … and because my self-indulgence knows no bounds, I’ve decided it’s going to come in the form of Momovember.

So, that’s thirty Momos in thirty days, and what the heck, let’s say at least half of them have to be in traditional media too. Send me prompts, pairings, palettes, whatever Momo content you want to see, and I’ll do my best to make it happen!


yes, i know. this graphic is my header in another color palette. and yes, i also know it doesn’t say ‘percy’s follow forever’ or anything like that. but hear me out. i am tired and uninspired and also couldn’t care less. i just wanted a nice picture at the top of my post. okay? okay.

so yes, it is percy’s follow forever even though it doesn’t look like one.

i’m making this post because a lot of people tagged me in theirs and i don’t want to seem like i don’t care about my mutuals. or that i don’t have any friends. (although, it could be argued that the latter is indeed correct). but yeah, let’s get to the point. i’ll put everything under the cut.

anonymous asked:

So this might seem like a random question but.. how do you always have your colors go together so well? It just always seems like you have these beautiful soft color schemes and everything goes together just right. I'm horrible with matching tones together and whatnot and was wondering if you had any tips on.. well, color schemes in general? And maybe how to make them really bring out the emotion you want to evoke :]

I’m sorry it’s going to be a hella long post! Be prepared!

I always find it easier to try to find Dirk’s skin color first, because he’s really white skinned and helps set a color base for the ambiance!
Here, a quick gif of the process!

And the final palette used for this illustration:

But my palettes changes always a lot when I’m painting, let’s just try something together to illustrate my point! Here’s another palette that I like!

First I do flat colors to test things out (especially when I don’t know where I’m going!)

I ended up with an illustration where the character are lighter than the background (So, the opposite of my original illustration)

Here’s the final result!

Feel free to try those palettes to experiment! And modify them if needed!

First Lick Plan

Here’s my plan for Ulta.

Scope out store at least a week or a month prior to lifting. Pretend like I’ve filled out an application and just wanted to come in to introduce myself, when I’m really there to get a feel for the store, see what the SAs are like, check for cameras, take pictures of the stuff I want, price check a little. Ask questions like I’m pretending to be thrifty or something. Look shit up on my phone. Dress nice, but not noticible.

Go back a week or two later.

Dress super duper nice, like I’m getting ready to go to a party. Sophisticated, of course, or like I’m just coming back from the beach. Face beat to high heavens, high heeled sandals, nice jewellry, hair up in a sleep bun.

I go in around closing (like a half hour 45 minutes before). That way I’ll look like I’m on my way to do someones’ makeup at a party and just rushed jn to grab a few things. The SAs are itching to go home. I greet them, and when they ask if I need anything, I say “No, thank you, I know what I’m getting” *smile*‘and look at the long list of stuff in my hand then proceed to load up my Ulta tote (casually, obvs).

I add some bags of cotton balls to conceal how much merch I’ve really got in my bag. Reach up, turn products around, re-check list, check stuff off, cross stuff off, pretend I’m matching the products to the ones kn my list or something. I use the ‘take 2’ rule and add two of each item to my bag. I really want two of each of the Naked palettes so that they don’t run out inbetween hauls, because I don’t plan on going back to this Ulta for another 4-5 months)

I look around a bit and make my way over to a blind spot, face buried in my list, looking up every now and again to make sure I’m in the right spot. I then scan the shelves like I’m looking for something, then crouch down pretend like I found it and am deciding on which one to get- then conceal, shoving smaller things like eyeliner, lipstick, and eyeshadows in my bra while pretending I can’t decide on the one I want. With one hand I look over the product and pretend to read the back, with the other I detag and stash in my bag and bra.

Stand up, take take whatever product I have over to the SA and casually ask her about it. Like “have you ever tried this product before? Do you recommend it?” If she says no I’ll say thanks and make my way over to my blind spot, put it back, pretend to look for another product, conceal more stuff. As much stuff as possible.

After I’ve concealed everything I want, I make my way towards the cash register with the Ulta tote and then slow down to grab my wallet (make like I’m trying to make it easier so the SAs can get out faster) Then I pretend to loose my card.

I’ll fake a phone call to my friend.

“Hey, I’m almost done. Real quick- can you look in the passenger sidedoor and see if my card is in there- I think I put it there after we came from WaWa.”


“No I’m about to checkout, I just pulled out my wallet to get my (instert whatever point reward system card Ulta has) and I noticed my wallet wasn’t in there.”

(pause, walking away from cash register back into aisle, like im looking at something before I check out while I wait)

“You don’t see it? Can you look on the floor for me? (look nervous, put hands to mouth, make eye contact with the cashier and look worried)

“I hope I didnt leave it there, thats a long drive and they’re about to close.” (look pouty, make my way over to the cashier on the phone, say)

“Excuse me, is there anyway I can hold these items and pick them up tomorrow?”

(Whatever their response is, respond accordingly)

“I’m sorry, Thank you so much. You have a nice night.)

(continue talking to friend, continue walking out door briskly while walking. Make sure all tags are cut/removed, keep walking, don’t stop. Get in car, leave.)

Go home and roll around in all my free shit. Don’t go back to that Ulta for another 4-5 months, becuase I’ll have all that I need until then!

Feel free to tell me how you like the plan.

Hii palette anon here, haha. Of course, I wouldn't mind the wait at all! Hrmm...I was thinking "The Sweetest Chill" (because you seem so sweet; I love reading the tags whenever there are, and yours make me giggle and fangirl with you lol >_<) or "Tuesdays" for Yoosung please? (I love him a lot and the color scheme matches!!) Or if there's another palette that you think would look great with him, please go ahead and draw that instead! I'm sure I'll like anything you come up with >~<

  • “I’m a designer, and I don’t care how much you want to save on fabric costs, I will give these women’s jeans proper pockets or you’ll have to fire me.”
  • “The designer is so bad that I’ve been able to quote devil wears prada at them for everything they’ve made”
  • “I’m a model and I love the clothes you design. I love wearing them. I wouldn’t mind taking them off for you, though.”
  •  "Sleeping with you was supposed to be a one off thing, no strings attached, but the way you take off my clothes makes me feel that you’re sleeping with my clothes instead and i dont know how to feel about that"
  • “I’m a photographer and the way you look in red lighting makes me feel things. ‘I want to see you in the back lighting of my bedroom’ kind of things”

  • “I’m a designer and if I have to deal with another lineup of mayonnaise palette models I will KILL and sure you for racism.”

Just. Please. Fashion aus, people.

bangoshy  asked:

I must say i love your use of colors you can put a lot of colors that would be eye bleeding on there own in one character but still make it work and look nice Any advice or trips for color theory?


Thinking about it many people told me my color choice is good and i’m so?? flattered?? As a beginner I did use many overlays on my drawings, especially a lilac one, because it gave the colors a nice tone I liked (so for beginners or people who use overlays a lot: don’t worry about it, you’re not forced or supposed to pick just the right colors at the first try everytime you draw. Keep doing it if it makes ur art look cooler! I still do it now sometimes and it’s okay to use them so you can understand more what kind of colors or tones you like on your drawings!)

i’m probably not the best at explaining and everything i say is based on personal experience (keep in mind that i am a self taught artist and i’ve been working with digital art since 2016), but here we go. 

color theory. I stumbled a lot of time, here on internet, on posts or articles about color theory, and i tried to “absorb” every tip i could use after on my works.

as you already said, my art is full of shiny, almost fluo and much saturated colors. So how do you pick the right colors to use in a drawing without making it look like a mess?
