hey guys!! my exams are finally over and because i disappeared off the face of the earth for that time i figured the best way to get back into the swing of things is to do some blog rates!!! im excited to start talking with everyone again aaah so happy to be back.
im so happy that so many of you either really like my art or some random stuff i do in general on here. i might try to do a art raffle soon on here for you guys now.
p.s to the people I’m doing a collaboration with i have some of the line art and coloring done i can’t send it to you or post it at the moment since ism on my phone and have no inter on my laptop right now. I’m really sorry too.
the way you use color is so nice... come up with your color palettes on the fly? they're so unique and depthful
firstly: thank u so much!!! color is pretty much the only thing im sort of confident in when it comes to my art so it really means a lot to hear :’^)
and yea most of the time im really just going with what looks right to me (though i kinda do have a bias when it comes to…warmer and softer colors i think, especially lately) unless i decide to limit myself (see: palettes)
its mostly a matter of playing around with it tbh! colors are fun and if u have fun using them freely and experimenting theyll look good 👌 color theory is useful but im a dum dum who doesnt use all the useful tricks fhjd
i also tweak my pieces a bit in Photoscape so maybe some of it comes from that :’o

You’re all amazing and valid. What you are feeling is valid. You are all part of the LGBT/ queer community, depending on what you personally choose to call it.
“Jacob,” Bella begins. “I love you. You’re my best friend. But… I can’t change how I feel.” Bella’s voice is quiet, and wobbling with emotion. “Because it’ll be him. It’s always him.”
Anguish sweeps across the wolf’s fierce face, and it’s even harder to take, Bella thinks, than if he were in human form. It is moments like these where she’s amazed by just how human Jacob is– how life exudes from every inch of his skin, even more so when he is his wolf.
Im sorry but the Lego Joker’s design is just SO visually appealing??? Like its a perfect blend of colors, its formal but yet not so much that its out of character, there’s no inbalance of warm and cold colors AND SHIT DUDE I REALLY LOVE HIS DESIGN ITS GREAT
If it’s got a fruit name it’s dyed. End of story. (strawberry, cherry, lemon, pineapple, blueberry) yes there may be some very rare exceptions-fire quartz being dubbed strawberry- but due to the rise in fakes with that name it’s generally called fire quartz now.
Aura quartz is a regular quartz that’s been bonded with another material. (man made)
Cinnabar Infused Quartz usually reconstituted and mixed together to make a red crystal.
Green quartz can be grown in a lab and anything that forrest green color is
Magnesite and howlite look very very similar to turquoise when they’ve been dyed, magnesite will have very deep cracks in it though.
No there is no white turquoise.
You can do a uv test to see if it’s real
Often faked with Copal. They look nearly identical.
Amber will float in salt water-copal will not.
Very vibrant colors!!
Irradiated: (they irradiate the crystals to get a deeper or more vibrant color)
deeply pigmented topaz or kunzite
dark (almost black) smokey quartz
very deep pink or red tourmaline
some cultured pearls
vibrant yellow heliodor
other stones may be dyed as well, generally if it looks fake..it is.
Heat treated stones: (really not a bad thing but if you’re going for natural)
Amethyst-lighten color+remove brown
Citrine-heat treated amethyst.
Nope, completely fake 100%
Literally just car paint layered with calcite and resin.
Citrine: (im so sorry)
Much of the citrine on the market is lab made.
If it’s lab made it’s usually amethyst that’s been heated until it changes color
The bottom of these stones will be white with more color at the tips.
High quality is vibrant blue, hard to come by, and very expensive.
Low quality howlite, jasper or sodalite is dyed blue, and passed off as lapis.
Acetone will remove the dye but damage the stone.
The clear green obsidian you see all over ebay is slag glass.
Natural green obsidian has been found but it is opaque and is more gray than green.
there is red obsidian as well but again, it’s not a vibrant red and is more brick colored.
Wikipedia is not always right.
it’s glass it’s legitimately just glass
real opalite exists but it’s green and not commonly found
once again, don’t believe everything on wikipedia.
Doesn’t naturally form in the crystals, lab made!!!
