xedramon  asked:

What has been your favorite scene to animate so far? I'm sorry if this has been asked before ^^

I was thinkking about all scenes of the XTra Scene #1, but just for the colouring, because that short doesn’t have so much animation.

So, I think this is one of my favorite ones. Yup, guys, this is from Underverse 0.3 :’3 I feel so proud.
There are also more scenes better than this, but I didn’t started with them yet.

Concearning Exo-CBX's 'Ka-Ching'
  • Ka Ching is like SM went;</b> "What are songs I, myself have produced that are good? Ah yes the 'Lookie' was a true bob, but this is EXO i need something big... 'Louder' I mean sorry 'Lotto' yes, now downgrade that and sprinkle some Irene and Yeri up on that shit. Alright and to top it off...Shinee.... retro SHINEE is my jam okay but not the music,,, just the over saturated colour scheme. Okay good? Let's go."
  • SM *after demo*: </b> "A Japanese song I love it!"
  • SM worker: </b> "Sir I thought this was their comeback???"
  • SM: </b> "Nah man throw it at Japan. But because EXO is all about that Chinese and Korean promotion... make sure the Japanese song is 30% English okay? Okay. :)))"
  • I'm not trying to hate on the song or the group, this is for comedic effect only plz don't be upset </i>

I saw a finnrey fanar that I really liked but it also makes me uncomfortable because I realize even more than before just how much Star Wars as appropriated Asian, especially Japanese, culture. Like the films were heavily influenced by the films of Akira Kurosawa. Even the film techniques were inspired by them. And Rey was almost name Kira as a tribute to him. It makes me uncomfortable that these films use Asian culture without having almost any Asian people. (Cont.)

I wish Rey had been Japanese. It would have made it easier. Or at the very least why couldn’t Jessica Henwick have been Rey. I know she’s Singaporean and not Japanese, but she would have been just as good as Daisy Ridley. Is it wrong for a white person to be upset by this. I’m a big Star Wars fan, but I also like Kurosawa’s movies and I just don’t feel like it’s right to not have Asian people in Star Wars when there’s so much Asian appropriation.

I agree 100%. 

Star Wars is literally a white utopian fantasy, where white people wear Asian names, Asian clothing, Asian culture, Asian theology, and Asian martial arts and simultaneously claim it as their own “creative genius”. It is downright despicable.

The Jedi are so obviously inspired by Buddhist monks. The whole “no attachment” and “give yourself over to the Force” thing is so obvious. And don’t get me started on their clothing, which is basically samurai clothing. Even their Jedi fighting ‘katas’ are based on Asian martial arts. But have you EVER seen an Asian Jedi? Ever? There are more fucking aliens who are Jedis than a non-white, let alone Asian human. Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen) is the first Asian martial arts fighter I’ve ever seen in any Star Wars-affiliated film (the bar is so low, holy fuck) and he doesn’t even have the Force. Oh no, but some white girl with decent public speaking skills has the Force. Of course she does. 

Padme Amidala. Holy-fucking-shit. See, I can sort of give Lucas a pass for being appropriative in the 1970s, but the prequels have gone too far. Padme’s dresses, headwear, down to her facial makeup are all plagiarised from traditional Mongolian wear. If I never see another “Padme’s glorious Nabooan fashion uwu” photo/gifset again it will be too soon. And her name–Padme? A complete bastardization of the South Asian traditional name of Padma. They even have Sanskriti vocals during her funeral scene, as if it’s not enough of a blow. All of this, yet they won’t have a South Asian or a Mongolian actress play her: instead, they’ll have a white/white-passing woman parade around in yellow/brownface. I honestly don’t care if “she had to be white, Luke & Leia are white!!11!” because the black queen and white king in Cinderella had a Filipino son and Anakin is Force Jesus.

I’ve never heard of Akira Kurosawa before, and now I’ll definitely check him out! I’m glad they didn’t give another white girl an Asian name. Rey could have had so much potential. If Rey had been Japanese, Black, or South Asian or literally anything but white, I would’ve lauded TFA as the best film of all time. 

I love Star Wars despite my vehement criticism, but I feel like the only thing left for me in this fandom are all the men of colour. They won’t have a woman of colour anytime soon (I think I’ll probably die before they ever have a dark-skinned woc as lead) and they refuse to represent us while stealing from us. I’m glad you care, even as a white person. If more white people cared, then this wouldn’t happen.

Moonrise Kingdom Colour Posters Series

… I love you too.

Okay, I think I’ll loose half my followers and be yelled at by almost everyone in the fandom, but fuck that, I’m doing this post anyway.

Guys. Guys, guys, guys. GUYS. Could you please tell me why everyone is just shitting on Andrew’s face, like,  EVERY TIME his name is mentioned in ANYTHING ?! I know LWA is about witches, so mainly if not only girls and that a lot of yuri shippers here don’t want to see any guy but seriously, don’t you think it’s going to far ? Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Dianakko shipper and I don’t want to see het bullshit in LWA either. I was scared EVERY TIME I saw that Andrew would be in an episode, especially after ep10 because, let’s be honest, the beginning of this ep was pure bullshit. But in ep6 as well as in ep17, the ones that really matter since ep10 was pretty much a joke from the producers, he has been nothing but a good boy, considering his upbringing. I mean, the guy was raised in a family that hates witches and that won’t allow an 8 year old to learn to play piano (which is just stupid), so yeah, guess he suffered quite a lack of “useless” things such as FUN and never talked to anyone not thinking like him (or when he did, his father said something like “They are fools that we need to guide on the right path, no matter what they say : this is what us, statesmen, are here for.”). So yeah, in ep6 and before, when he and Diana met as children, he was a real dick with witches. I won’t deny that.

But ep6 and 10 (even if it was full of bullshit in the beginning) came and he changed his view on witches, leading to him defending Akko and Amanda in ep17. The guy has grown up and is now an ally. A FRIEND for Akko, even if they don’t always get along and still argue about some things. And seriously, aside from Akko blushing a bit when she met him in ep6 (I won’t talk about ep10’s beginning, I consider it as a joke from the producers’ and nothing else, but even in ep10, after the first part in the ballroom, there’s no more romantic interaction between them : the scene at the fountain gave Andrew hope and courage, their little interaction at the end was nothing more than two buddies acknowledging their good work at solving a problem), so aside from that, there hasn’t been any real het bs. Sure, you can quote one or two things, like Akko’s look to Andrew at the end of ep17, but the look itself only means what you want it to and I chose to believe that it was just Akko being grateful for Andrew’s help with everything that happened.

So I get why everyone is mad that there might be a SLIGHT CHANCE of getting Akkandrew scenes, we’re not here for that, clearly, but if you look at it objectively just 2 minutes, the “romantic scenes” are, like, 1/10 of their interactions so far. And it’s a really, REALLY little part of EVERYTHING that happened in the anime and that is going to happen.

And now, for ep19 : yes Andrew is here, yes he might get some screentime, no it doesn’t mean it will ruin anything. I mean, come on guys, you’re better than that ! Even if Andrew DOES have some role in the ep aside from taking Akko to Diana’s house and explaining her what’s going on (like the aunts taking over the family and their positions about prestige and witchcraft), it doesn’t mean it will ruin the interactions between Akko and Diana ! I understand you’re worried, but saying things like “shit head will ruin the ep” or “I thought it was going to be an ep about Akko and Diana, but now Andrew ruins it” is just stupid and really annoying. Another character being there, even if it’s a boy, doesn’t mean the focus of the ep will be on him or that he will ruin scenes between the two girls or anything like that ! There are 10 screencaps from the ep that have already been released and Andrew is in only one of them, just like Diana’s aunts, so don’t you think it’s a bit early to say his presence will ruin everything ?

As far as we know, he might as well make his coming out, say he sees Akko as an annoying little sister and give her advices to talk to Diana and ask her out on a date.

And if you didn’t see it already, I’ll ask you to please read this really nice analysis of @darthcontusion that was made 2 weeks ago where it explains clearly how Andrew is not as shitty as some people make him look like.

And if you’re not convinced yet, think about Gamagori in Kill la Kill. The guy was deeply in love with Mako, but it never stopped Trigger from giving us really nice scenes between her and Ryuuko and in the end, Gamagori’s feelings didn’t ruin anything. NOT. A. THING. (Mako didn’t even notice them and only saw Gamagori as a great and reliable senpai)

One doesn’t have to hate and shit on the face of a character to support a ship. Andrew being a white (I don’t even know why we talk about his skin colour, seriously) and potentially straight guy doesn’t mean it will ruin anything between Akko and Diana because BREAKING NEWS ! It’s not how it works. So please, let Andrew breathe and start insulting Diana’s aunts ‘cause THESE ONES seem to be real bitches. Just give Andrew a chance, I know he’s a nice guy deep inside.

anonymous asked:

Have you got any mixed race javid things cos I'm half Welsh half Japanese and this douche was being horrid about it today and like I just need some fluff sorry.... xxxx

I’m sorry people are stupid- I send love and happy thoughts <3 Have a headcanon to cheer you up:

  • Jack was abandoned as a baby so he doesn’t know who his parents are or really anything about himself beyond looks so he knows he’s mixed race but not what his ancestry is
  • It’s doubly hard because he can’t pass as white but he doesn’t know if he can/should identify as a person of colour, but also because he feels like he doesn’t even know who he is
  • It’s at the back of Jack’s mind for years and Davey knows it bothers him but doesn’t know what to do to help
  • Then he comes across one of those DNA test things that can tell you what your ancestry makeup is like and he decides that’s what he’s getting Jack for Christmas, even if he doesn’t celebrate it himself because he’s Jewish. Jack does and he wants to get him something that means something
  • At first Jack is confused as hell but then Davey explains and he lights up
  • He’s a nightmare for the 6-8 weeks he has to wait for results because he’s so impatient but when he gets them he finds out he’s part Irish, part Native American and part African (it’s not specific any further than ‘West African’ but honestly that’s enough for him)
  • Davey just sits and watches as Jack finds out all this information about himself that he never knew and the look of awe on his face is perfect. If it didn’t feel like such a private moment he’d be half tempted to get out a camera and film it
  • Then Jack starts crying which is pretty rare so Davey gets worried and starts apologising but Jack just explains that it’s the best gift he’s ever gotten because he knows who he is and he can finally be proud of it as his specific identity and that’s something no one has ever been able to give him before
  • Davey helps him research a bunch of stuff all night because Jack is too excited to sleep, until they eventually both end up curling up together on the sofa surrounded by both of their laptops and a stack of Davey’s books, and Jack is smiling in his sleep and holding Davey tight because no matter what his ancestry results were, he knows he belongs at Davey’s side.

Hi! I'd like to ask you a question! I talked to the woman who cleans our school yesterday and we talked about clothes and everything. Suddenly she told me that green is considered an evil colour in Poland? But I couldn't understand her explanation! I asked my mum later (who was born in Silesia and a friend of hers but they didn't know anything about it. Now I'm confused and apparently I'm a bad person now, because my favourite colour is green? (Seriously, my classroom was flooded today!) Help!

(2/2) I really really hope that you can help me! (Even if it turns out it was just a joke) And thank you for your time!

Sorry for a late reply but I had to think about your ask for a little bit.

Okay, so before I start to elaborate about it, you have to know that I’m not so sure about my answer because I’ve never heard about green being an “evil colour”. So this is only my assumption. 

Firstly, we need to “divide” Polish culture into 2 parts - after christianity and before it (Slavic beliefs), because many symbols changed their meanings after the Christianisation of Poland. 

Let’s start with pre-christianity period. Then green was a colour of a new life, animals and plants, farming. It was believed that green could save people from injuries. On the other hand this was a colour of immaturity. I’m not sure about it (because there is little historical facts about images of slavic gods and deities) but I’ve read that green was be considered to be a colour of wild places (and holy at the same time) and their inhibitants like deities or demonic creatures.

After the baptism of Poland the meaning of green colour could have changed. Even so, green can’t be such an evil colour since even in the Bible (creating a world) it is a colour of life (green plants as a food for ppl and animals). But mind that there is also a description of the Apocalypse in the Bible where we’ve got “an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death”. In Polish most popular translation of the Bible the colour of this horse is “trupio blady” (deathly pale) but in some images Death sits on a green horse. The translation from can also differ - it doesn’t have to be pale, it might be also yellowish or pale green. So maybe that’s why pale green can be considered as a colour of illness, sickness or disease and death. A bright green symbolises a poison or venom. Maybe it is also about reptiles that are, let’s say, the enemies of christianity (a snake or dragon - for instance Saint George who fought a dragon, a satan in fact).

Right now green is rather a positive colour but I’m not so surprised that this Polish woman finds it negative or even evil. But once again, this is only my guess, I’m not sure if my assumptions are correct. 

Maybe some of my followers have sth to add. Also @lamus-dworski - maybe you are able to say sth more about this.

Honestly, I feel like this fandom is turning into something weird and crooked. I thought Skam was about understanding and respecting one another despite our differences.

anonymous asked:

Do you mind me asking what exactly your method for your psd coloring is exactly??? Like do you usually start off with curves or levels first ? Is it mostly just selective colors ? And what does the color fill do exactly? And how do you get your gifs so light and shiny ? I'm sorry for bumbarding you with questions it's just I really wanna make my gifs look better

There’s no need to apologise, if anything it’s flattering to get asked about colouring so thank you!

I usually start by lowering the contrast, then I add some levels and selective colour. How much of each and what colours really depends on the scene though.

I do go a bit OTT with selective colour just because I like things bright and colourful (if I can manage it).

If the scene has a horrible colour tinge to it I always use curves to get rid of it as best I can.

The colour fill doesn’t add a great deal to be honest. I think I just followed a tutorial once when I was first learning to gif and it said to add it, so I did. And I’ve been in the habit ever since. It makes the gif a little lighter, but you can achieve the same thing with curves/levels/brightness.

I don’t really know about the light and shiny, I don’t really see that when I look at my gifs so I don’t know what to tell you on that one. I’m assuming it’s the Guassian blur.

Perhaps the dragon did remember, but Dany could not. She had never seen this land her brother said was theirs, this realm beyond the narrow sea. Viserys had been a boy of eight when they fled King’s Landing to escape the advancing armies of the Usurper, but Daenerys had been only a quickening in their mother’s womb.
