If Wiishu ever gets snapchat I’ll be so happy

Psh.. I didn’t spend an hour trying to figure out how to use a psd to just say fuck it and spend another hour figuring out the best way to make my own version because I couldn’t work the psd.. psh.. no way.. haha ha :^)

Hi there! May I ask how you made those gifs that you did for an rp meme 'six characters that aren't mine'??

oh daaaaaamn. at the time that was a long, hard job of totally clicking around and hoping for the best hahaha. and i 100% stole the idea from @sammrps ‘s to begin with, hers is a lot better. 

honestly, I branched out and learned how to use the layers in the animation timeline by trial and error. It was a lot of keyframe work. (I did an animation degree in college, so that helped by giving me a lot of background knowledge to make educated guesses.) its really just a lot of hiding and unhiding layers along the timeline tbh. but here. i’ll try and make a speedy tutorial???

INTO A CREDIT STILL (or something);

Edit: i forgot how i did the motion blur, but as soon as i figure it out, i’ll update this tutorial.

I screw up a lot, alright. And being around you, I just don’t want to be that guy anymore. Who do you want to be, Nathan? I want to be somebody who’s good enough to be seen with you. You should have thought of that last night. You know, I keep putting myself out there and you keep blowing it. That’s probably a good thing…

Make me choose between two characters and I’ll make an edit with my answer

How do you handle art theives? Do you ever get worried someone out there is selling your art?

Do your best to prevent it!

-Upload small .jpeg versions of your art with low DPI
-Apply big ugly watermarks, especially over the main focus so it can’t just be cropped out
-Apply the watermarks over any detail shots you post as well
-If you do commissions Never give away the .PSD/whatever file type of the work.
-Make usage rights clear when discussing a commission and write up a quick contract if you have to.


I haven’t had to deal with anything past people heavily referencing so far, but it’ll happen eventually I guess, I’m not looking forward to it tho.

If anyone is trying to then yeah they’re not gonna be making a great product since i only post small heavily watermarked .jpegs :y

do you have some tips for making gif icons of scratch?

sorry for the delay w this , baby ! i’ve been sick the last couple of days , so i haven’t rlly been around. here’s some of my tips tho !! let me know if you’d like me to go into more detail abt any !

  • pick a cute psd that works well on different skin tones , lightings , etc. the best way to test them is to have a few different gifs ready (w different skin tones & lightings ) w no psd & put them to the test. sometimes u may just need to adjust a layer or two to make it work , or u might find that u need to change too much of the psd to make it work & sometimes it’s easier just to find a new psd ! but it’s better to work this out before you start giffing so u don’t get mid-way through a hunt or a couple fc’s in & realise that the psd may not be the best universally. i try to pick a psd that i know i’ll like in the long run, esp when it came to this blog. i didn’t want to use a psd that i would get sick of in a couple of months time.
  • you can also test textures & the place of them once u find a psd. sometimes i put the texture below the psd , others i prefer the texture above the psd. it’s all about preference !! 
  • i don’t use actions on all of my gifs as i find it can look a little bit harsh on some, especially snapchat vids. but for me, it comes down to trial & error on each new vid to whether i like it w or w/o an action.
  • make sure that the gif isn’t too short ! u don’t want the gif to look too choppy bc the gif ends mid way through a movement or smth. i tend to do between 50-60 frames per gif ! 
  • another important thing is to make sure that the gif isn’t too quick or too slow. i tend to use 0.06 sec when my gif is 60 frames, 0.07 sec when my gif is 50-59 frames, 0.08 sec when the gif is around 40ish frames & 0.05 if i ever use a gif over 65+ frames. this isn’t always definite tho !! it can change gif to gif. sometimes the time may be too slow or too fast for the number of frames compared to others. 
  • decide on a size that works best for you & your preference !! i prefer 100px gifs & that’s the size of the gifs i release on this blog. sometimes i like 80px gifs for a change, like the cartia gif below, but i always end up going back to 100px. personally, i wouldn’t go any smaller than 75px because it can be hard on the eye. if you do any smaller than 100px, make sure that u crop it so u can still see the expression on the fc’s face clearly & so it isn’t in the background on the gif.
  • i find it more enjoyable making gifs of fc’s that i’m familiar with & like. that’s why i personally take suggestions over requests, that way i have a little more freedom & can go w my muse. a way to get muse for a fc u might not be familiar w is to actually watch some of their videos before you gif them. for some reason, this has worked for me !!
  • i try to use videos that are 720p !! i’m v hesitant about using videos that are any less than 480/360p because the quality can be hard to work with even at that level. 

ultimately, gif making is all about trial & error and working out what works best for you. so just play around and have fun w it !!! you’ll find your technique pretty quickly once u get the hang of it !!
