Hi maya, can you share what you mean by H's social media confusing/annoying you?

Hi! it’s just…peculiar? I didn’t agree with the common opinion that Harry needed to get out there long before starting promo, I was very ok with him avoiding the full exposure mood until he had to. But once things started moving, I expected something different, both in person and on social media. Part of me still believes he’s holding himself back until, you know…unitl something ends…the outcome on his sm account is a bit weird though, sounds a little off, not someone I’d be charmed by if I didn’t know him already (and indeed his following count hasn’t grown at all in a week of promo, which isn’t usual a thing).

I really love your technique of using all the negative space between works to create a kind of interlocking pattern of sketches! I'd love to know more about how you do it- Do you design a whole page at once or do a few and then design another image to fit the space between them? Whats your process? You work in incredible.

Thanks!  I usually will start with one piece of the puzzle and then design around it.  I block in big shapes then decide the pose I want to put into the space based on the shape that I have to work with.  At the end, I tighten everything up to make it flow better and more cleanly.

Say, how do you make your promos and icons? I'm finding trouble with figuring out how to do that effect on PS


so here we go, i’ve never been the best at explaining because reasons but i’m gonna be putting a lot of pictures down for y’all if you want to know how i do my usual PSDs for my aesthetics / icons.

first off, let’s get a mangacap.

okay, looks nice. while i usually work with smaller icon sizes than this ( this image is 200 x 200 ), you can take an extra step before starting your icon process by cleaning it up. taking out extra lines, that sort. stick to black and whites for this, don’t try to use grays. okay, so the first step for me is darkening the icon. stick to light grays for this, using darker colors just risks making the icon hard to see. i’m gonna use #bdbdbd for this.

to be honest, if you were aiming for a similar look as my aesthetics / icons, you could easily end it there but if you wanted to take extra measures, here’s some more steps. step two would be lightening the icon. black can be a very nice color but sometimes even the slightest bit of difference from it can make something have more dimension. chose colors close to black but far enough that you can see the difference. i’m gonna use #171717 for this.

see the difference ? not only does the icon have more dimension, it also erases any spots left over the icon due to how the manga itself was scanned. usually that’s where i would stop with making my PSD because it’s actually fairly simple but you could easily add onto it to add your own unique flair to it or to make it more accessible to you. here’s an example of what you could do to your icon.

basically, just have fun with it and always make sure to mess around with the sliders. the difference between 100% and 98% can sometimes be really surprising. there is a fair warning here though that this sort of PSD does not work as well with material such as anime or cartoons, it’s a manga / black & white webcomic PSD.

I know this may be awkward for you but can you please make a short paragraph of descriptions/comparisons about all KNK members' voices? I'm deaf and it's really unfortunate that I can't have a chance to hear their voices. So, could you try to make a description for each member to help me and others who want to have a better image of their voices? I'd really appreciate it. I LOVE your blog by the way! I always check it out during my free times. :)

*KNK’s Voice in a Food Kind Of Description *

Seungjun: Usually when he sings or raps his voice is relatively low as compared when he’s talking/dating with Jihun. It’s like a warm cup of hot chocolate, not the ones that would scald your tongue, but the one that fogs your lens as you take your first sip on a cold winter night, reminding you that you’re not alone. Its a voice that calms your heart. 

Jihun: He is the falsetto of the group, if Seungjun brings the richness of the hot chocolate, then Jihun brings in the lightness. Jihun is like the cup of water that cleanses your tongue after having your bitter cup of coffee. What he brings is the dynamics of life, whenever its his part, its like a new chapter, a new beginning.

Inseong: Imagine that you’re having your family dinner, what do you see first? Of course its that glistening-crispy-turkey-thats-been-baked-with-butter /I am hungry right now/ His voice is like the main dish, the highlight. Its the strongest, its obvious, its powerful. Like the feeling when you eat too much greasy food and you have that feeling in your throat, imagine that turning into a piece of art. He sings with ease as if his diaphragm is like a black hole, he sucks all those fangirls in too easily into this fandom with his voice.

Youjin: Truth to be told when I first heard his voice I was like, ‘Its pretty clean and simple,’ Little did I know that this simplicity had so much complexity, he sings with so much grace despite singing /more like belting/ all those high notes, he washes all our sins away. Many say that his voice is like honey, for me its like eating menthol lozenges. If Inseong is the grease, Youjin is the grease-cleanser. Its a good balance to have main vocalists that are quite opposite from each other, its gives us contrast. Its like the ups and downs in life :’)

Heejun: His voice doesn’t scream ‘I AM MAIN’ nor is it like hiding behind those tall pillars. His voice is like eating a bowl of instant noodles, after you’ve been on a fad diet for a month. It reminds you that you’re perfect just the way you are, that you are beautiful and that you deserve to be loved. His voice has so much emotions and feelings that its so nostalgic? Suddenly you’re reminded of your childhood crush, or that time when you were so awkward with your friends back then when you guys first met and that you can’t believe that you guys were such turtles but now you guys have metamorphose into legendary memes.

I love all their voices tbh <3 

p.s thank you so much for this message, it was so sweet? It made my week cause I’m such a mess I have so much things to do in school haha /whats new/ 

p.s p.s I love you guys <33
