idk what's with the last one

anonymous asked:

would u mind idk explaining or making some kind of tutorial on how you color you stuff?

I’ve been thinking back and forth because truthfully idk what I’m doing most of the time and I just make everything up as I go ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I also don’t think I’m reinventing the wheel here and what I do isn’t any different from what you can find in every other colouring tutorial on the internet, so I thought I’d just take some screenshots of whatever my process is in the hope that it might help you in some way?

But then I remembered that I already did that when I was drawing this thing a couple of months ago and for some reason never posted the gif. It’s a bit older now obviously and I think (hope) I’m constantly improving, but the basic steps are still more or less the same

  • flat colours (use 3892789872 layers if you have to. I know I do)
  • block in basic shadows/highlights etc
  • refine, throw in an overlay layer (or three), rinse, repeat until you’re satisfied (or just want to give up)
  • colour the lineart
  • merge/group all the layers and draw finishing touches on top

switch/skip/expand on any step as you see fit! And let me know if you have any questions :]

Hello, you have been identified as An Awesome Fic Writer™. Congrats, you rock! So that all of your readers can shower you with some extra love today, please tell us your favourite five stories of yours and why you like them and then send this to another five fic authors you think deserve this title!

Aww omg AURY THANK YOU!! (SAME TO YOU!!)  Hmm, okay, I’ll pick five!


1) Hallelujah : This is one of my absolute favorites that I’ve written.  Idk why, it was a request on tumblr, and I just loved it.  I think it honestly turned out really sweet and I can confidently say that I really love it.

2) We Have Forever : I like this one because it was really fun to write my take on what happened to Fairy Tail/Nalu in the future!  You know me, I’m a mess for nalu haha so I liked this one.

3) Wait, I did WHAT on Snapchat Last Night? : I like this one because it was so fun to write!  I love writing funny stories (if you couldn’t tell from all of my stories I write lmao).  I just like the dynamic between Natsu and Lucy in this, plus Lucy’s friendship with Cana and Levy.

4) Drunken, Strip Teased Love : Another one I love because I enjoyed making it so ridiculous and funny lol.  I also love the very drunk Erza’s dialogue in it ;)

5) Of Fairies and Fraternities : This one isn’t finished and I’m not entirely happy with it (I will probably go back and edit a lot of it), but it’s really fun to write, I’m a sucker for school AUs for Fariy Tail lol. And I’m having so much fun writing it!

BONUS: It Had Been : Because this is some angst that I really think came out good, so cry your eyes out and tell me about it ;)

so just today I said to myself “I think the most bittersweet moment about meeting Taylor is the likely hood that you’ll ever see her again is like none” but all these people who met her last era are meeting her again and its giving me so much hope in life. I’ve been through a lot since last era, I lived when I thought I couldn’t and a lot of the times it was Taylor’s music that got me through those times. I wish I could even begin to describe what these last three years were like. I had a lot of good but I also had a lot of bad. I know I could’ve had it a lot worse and I’m so thankful I didn’t but I just need to tell Taylor thank you one more time. I feel like there’s so much left unsaid. I want everyone to have the opportunity to meet her though. SO if ever given the opportunity again I would feel almost guilty. idk I’m thinking when I should be doing homework

Sams super charming after a date…

I got in a huge fight with one of my roommates that I used to be really close with because she’s been saying horribly rude things to me for the past few weeks and I finally snapped and we got into a really big fight and I ended up crying for three hours last night and having a friend come and pick me up. Idk whats gonna happen because I’m not going to allow myself to be emotional abused by someone when they refuse to communicate wih me or show me any signs of respect yet expect the same in return. She used my worst insecurities on me last night which is horrible and unfair. However, I woke up today with a lot of clarity on what to do to handle the situation to the best of my efforts in a non emotional way. And I feel really good that I’m at least able to push through this and not let it continue to hurt me. I know the journey I’ve been on, my truth, and the demons I’ve faced. I’m really proud of myself because even if I lost my temper I still left the situation and took my time to process it and come to a solution of how to attempt to fix it instead of just obsessing over it and feeling sorry for myself.

So….harry potter au???

Ok first of all I KNOW. The Smiths dont live in…europe. They are from usa and in a au where they are wizards theres not way they could ever get near hogwarts. Theres the american school for wizards called ilvermorny. BUT GUESS WHAT- i dont care.

In ilvermorny things are super different and i made this au thinking HOW FUNNY it could be to see the Smiths goin to Ollivanders for a new wand for Morty (Cuz…the last one got lost or broke idk) and Rick only goes with them just to make fun of how weak and shitty those wands are. Btw imagine Rick becoming Mortys teacher against the dark arts lmao. You know Rick hates Hogwarts with all his heart but he just wants to be with Morty and make his life miserable so yeah. I have so many ideas with this shitty au.  And yeah in my version of this… Jerry is a muggle, Rick a Slytherin, Morty Hufflepuff, Beth Revenclaw and Summer is Gryffindor (Btw Rick probably doesnt believe in all that bs and hates being labeled as a Slytherin but deep down he knows….)

I hope joaquin keeps his powers after the apocalypse is over and like he doesn’t really use them but like one day he’s in his college dorm and his roommate startles him and he jumps and accidentally sets a thing on fire and his room mate is like dude wtf?? And joaquin is like ‘oh yeah remember when the apocalypse happened last year? So i got magic powers and they never really went away idk how it works or what but’
