Hi! I've been wondering something and thought I'd ask here in case someone else can use the help :) I've been trying to give my clothing four color channels but I can't figure out how, could you help me please? Thank you, I really admire what you do here ♥
the mask like you usually do, but make another color area (I usually use blue
but you can use whatever color) then save this as a dds and open it again.
the magic wand tool to select the blue area:
Channels, go to Alpha (if you cannot see channels, go to window > Channels
at the top)
that is blue > white, all the rest > black:
as dds as import as your mask into TRSW, you will need to select 4 Channels:
sure you enable all channels so they show:
Post-Reveal Superhero team with Nino ‘the normal human bestfriend’ Lahiffe
Nino having to make excuses in class all the time whenever the other 4 need to make a quick get away.
“Girl’s travel in packs to the loo Sir, Adrien’s just got a weak bladder,”
Their school has an unusual amount of fire drills, but no culprit is ever found
Nino loosing count of the number of free deserts he’s been given when Alya’s had to run out on a date.
Nino becoming pretty good friends with Sabrina as Chloe seems to just deposit her with him when they need to rush out.
Nino becoming a pretty decent amateur photographer due to the fact that Alya makes him take photo’s of the four miraculous holders for the Ladyblog
Nino carrying around supplies in his backpack just in case anyone needs anything. This includes a first aid kit, snacks and drinks and a supply of tampons (because grumpy badass superheroes are not one to be messed with if they need something)
Ladybug’s superpower may be to save the world with everyday objects, but it does help that Nino carries them around with him.
He also has an emergency makeup bag for Chloe so she can fix her face and hair before heading back to school.
Also carrying emergency supplies for all the Kwami (he smells of cheese a lot - damn plagg)
Nino has a lot of casual selfies of all 4 of them on his phone, just in case, someone asks for proof that they are with him.
Nino, who has never been very academically inclined, suddenly taking lots of very detailed notes in class and helping them catch up and study.
Nino keeping spare clothes for them all at his house, just in case they end up all transforming there and feeling too tired to head home again afterwards.
Just Nino being the ultimate bro, and defending and supporting his best friends as they save the world, with no complaints.
Imagine your boss, Dean Winchester, flirting with you every time he can.
“And last but far from least-” you let a small sigh, looking at the door in case someone was coming “Mr Fury asked to see you.”
“Fury? As in Nick Fury?” Dean raised and eyebrow, his interest peaking.
“Exactly. It either has to do with the damage you and Mr Stark caused on your small trip around town or-”
Dean chuckled, leaning back in his chair “Come on (Y/n), we were drunk!”
“That does not justify it. On the contrary, it was reckless to go take his suits while being drunk.” you said with a pointed look and his smile turned into a softer one.
“You know-” he leaned forward so that he was closer to you “I love it when you care so much about me.”
“Mr Winchester.” you scolded softly, not meeting his eyes but still unable to hide a small smile from your face.
“I thought that by now we had agreed on that, sweetheart. It’s Dean.” he said, sounding a little disappointed.
“You know that can’t happen, Mr Winchester.” you mumbled, starting to place all of his files in place. Anything to keep you occupied from looking him in the eyes “I’m your assistant.”
“Well then we can arrange that. I could always fire you.” he gave you a cheeky grin as with wide eyes your head snapped to him.
“What?” you stood there frozen for a second until he started laughing at your expression.
“Just kidding. There’s no way on Earth I would fire my most trusted worker.” he shook his head “Besides, this enterprises would crumble down without you here to be honest.”
“Glad you appreciate my job then, Mr Winchester.” you chuckled with a small sigh of relief, shaking your head at your boss.
He rolled his eyes for a moment “That’s just not going to go away easily, is it?” he huffed, almost disappointed and you bit the inside of your cheek; still not looking at him.
“Wish it could.” you mumbled and saw him from the corner of your eye get up and walk towards you.
“You know it can-” you almost jumped at how close he had gotten without you realizing it, his breath only fanning over your cheek and his hand on your back “It’s all up to you.”
“Mr Winchester please-” you glanced at the door nervously “Someone might walk in. I just- I don’t want them to think I am taking advantage of-”
“Of who? Me? Sweetheart by all means, do so.” he gave you a boyish grin and you couldn’t stop a chuckle at his words, shaking your head.
“No. Of the time I spend with you. I- I worked hard to get this position.”
“I know, I saw it for myself.” he frowned slightly “That’s why you got the promotion.”
“Yeah, well if they see us like this they’re not going to think exactly that Mr Winchester. I don’t want people to assume I am here because I am sleeping with my boss.” you placed a hand on his chest, regretting it but still pushing him away. You couldn’t even dare look him in the eyes, you couldn’t take the heartbroken look on his face.
“But they don’t have to see us, if that’s the problem.” he suggested after a long pause and you frowned.
“I mean if that’s what you’re most scared of- we don’t really have to tell everyone. Let them find out on our wedding day.” he added with a wink and you couldn’t help but giggle at him.
“Mr Winchester-” you started with a small whine but you knew you didn’t have an excuse good enough. Honestly you were mostly trying to convince yourself that you couldn’t be with him than him in the first place. Besides, it was your own feelings you had been battling with mostly these days than your boss’s advances and flirty remarks.
“Come on, just give me a chance. You’ll see I’m not that bad!” he threw his arms in the air and you bit your lip.
“Mr-” you stopped yourself “Dean, I know you’re not.” you confessed looking him in the eyes “And I know that if the circumstances were different- I wouldn’t have hesitated for a second. Especially after such a surprise.” you added with a chuckle and he grinned.
“You like them?” he remembered the flowers he had sent to your apartment. One of his many attempts in getting you “Took my brother’s advice in it.”
“The flowers were amazing, really.” you admitted “But I was mostly referring to the sweets, especially the pie.”
“Well, that one was my idea actually.” he confessed, full of pride and you giggled.
“Oh I bet!” you shook your head with a laugh.
“Say-” he spoke up, a hand again being placed on your back “How about I take you out… for pie and burgers and we can make a fresh start?”
“Dean” you sighed “You’re not going to give up, are you?”
“Hell to no.” he confessed.
“May I ask you- why are you so interested in me? Up until a few months ago I was just one of the secretaries until I became your personal assistant. But still- nothing more.” you dared look him in the eyes, only to see confusion written all over his face.
“I think we’ve made it clear that you got this position because you are the only one that actually puts effort into their work. Plus, you’re the only one that knows me so well and doesn’t dress up on purpose to show off and turn me on.” he shrugged, before pressing you close to him “That happens either way.” he added and you rolled your eyes at his cheekiness.
“I’m only wearing a white blouse and pencil shirt.” you mumbled.
“As I said- too fucking hot.” he growled almost in your ear and for the first time you let him kiss your cheek without you pushing him away.
“Dean” the way his name left your lips was definitely something you weren’t planning on.
Dean grinned widely “See? Already getting there-” he licked his lips “Do you really want to know why I am so interested in you?” he said in a low rough voice “Because you’re special. Because every morning you have walked in my office, hair a mess, no make up on and clothes a little a little wrinkled with a few buttons undone-” he paused for a moment, his eyes roaming your body “I can only think of how gorgeous you look, and how I’d love to see this sight every fucking morning. Especially after an intense night of-” he paused grinning up at you, only to see a hint of red on your cheeks.
“Gosh I would so love that.” he breathed out huskily, his breath tingling your lips as his face stood only a few inches away from yours.
“I’m- I’m not that-”
“I swear to god, if you complete that sentence I am just going to grab you and prove you wrong right here and now in any way you can imagine.” he said with a slight growl and you swallowed the lump in your throat, feeling yourself shiver when his hands started traveling. You couldn’t deny you liked it a little too much.
“Do you even know the things you do to me when you lean over my desk?” he whispered, resting his forehead on the side of your head; his lips brushing past your ear “With those tight, black skirts. I’ve had such a fucking hard time concentrating during meetings just because of you. You don’t even have to touch me, hell not even say something and I know I am a goner. I can’t think straight when you are in the same room. And gosh, you’re not even doing it on purpose. You’re so clueless.” he grinned “So adorably clueless.”
“Mr Winchester” you whispered, fisting his suit jacket in your hand.
“And the way you say that- I hated it so much at first, it felt like you put a wall between us. I still do but at the same time-it sounds so innocent, so unintentional that you can’t realize how cute and hot it sounds at the same time.” he chuckled and you bit your lip.
“And as if all of that is not enough you- you are such an amazing woman. You actually listen to me when I need it, you try to understand me and you- you love rock too. You listen to me ramble about my car when my own brother always tries to make me shut up when I do. You actually know so much about me, every side of me, that no other woman I’ve been with has ever known. And that’s only because you are the one interested.”
“I can’t help it you know.” you whispered, looking at him through your eyelashes.
“I know. Trust me baby, I know.” he breathed out, cupping your face and before you had the time to react he crashed his lips to yours.
Hi, wonderful❤❤ Have you ever thought about making a post and showing your process and tools you use/do when you make a picture :) I'd looove to see that! Like someday when you have time or if you feel like it!
Hey, Shay! ❤️ I have actually never really thought about it since my editing is pretty inconsistent and I tend to change styles all the time, but since I am finally somewhat happy with the way my pictures look, I guess I can make that post! My editing process is a bit wonky, keep in mind I am a total noob in Photoshop! How I edit my pictures under the cut! (edit: it was originally under the cut but I am afraid you can’t read it in my theme so it is no longer under the cut until I fix this, sorry!)
1. I use Reshade! Which, actually, makes a tremendous difference. I use this preset right over here.
2. Then, I open up Photoshop, select the picture I want to edit and run early-grape’s action opal from the angelic ace action pack, which can be found here!The action is amazing but I actually do prefer it without the lilac-ish tones, so what I do is remove the layers that give the picture such tones. Here’s a picture:
After you run the action your picture should look like this, what I do is delete the selected layers which I also attempted to circled around in red. So, to put it simply, after I have run the action I just press del.
3. After this is done I use Topaz Clean, which you can download here, with these settings:
4. After that is done I use smart sharpen (found under filter > sharpen > smart sharpen) with the following settings:
5. Once this is done, your picture should look sort of like this:
So now, we crop! I usually crop all my pictures to 1366 x 610 (so I just select the crop tool and insert that ratio).
6. After this is done I usually adjust brightness, however in this picture, it wasn’t necessary, so we go straight to the next step which is adding a light leak, drag it over the picture and screen it! I just googled light leaks and found this one and so I just screen it, here’s a couple pictures below:
7. Because I stopped using DOF sometimes, very rarely, when I feel like it, I select my sims with the selection tool, then I select inverse and blur the background using Gaussian blur (found under filters > blur > gaussian blur). And, that’s it!
Side note: I am a complete noob with Photoshop, but I am glad I know enough to be able to use what this community gives me to make my pictures look good! So a big thank you to those who provide actions and presets and all the tutorials, you are all so useful and kind for sharing these, so thank you, for helping out a noob like me!
Well, as long as I’m in the process of editing these icons, I might as well throw a tutorial together for anyone who might need it.
As you’ve probably noticed, there are very few manga faceclaims out there with darker skin colors, which seriously limits FC options for some muses, since not everyone is comfortable with live faceclaims or can draw their own. SO, here’s a simple guide for how I edit my icons
I’ve found this method is easier with icons that are already cropped & resized, so it’s probably in your best interest to make the icons before editing. It’s pretty quick (even if you’re like me and use a crappy laptop trackpad); editing one icon usually takes under 1 min. once you know what you’re doing.
So I'm going to write this character who grew up for a major part of her young life in a fighting pit without an arm, she mainly relied on the "that girl without an arm can't be a threat" and then beat their butts when their backs were turned, and I'd like her to be able to wield a sword and shield, and I'm trying to work out the logistics of that, like would it make sense for her to have a piece of wood attached to her stump to better support the shield and stuff, or am I wrong?
So I’ve kept this in my askbox for a while because I’m not sure how to respond to it. I give prompts and some writing advice on this blog. This question is way outside my limited expertise. I’ll throw it out there in case someone has an answer.
Why do we look at our ascendant for our horoscope I never knew that, so if my rising is scorpio I should look at that when reading my horoscope? Shook
Here’s the reason why you look at your Rising sign instead of your Sun sign.
So, I’m going to be clear and say that your Rising sign is kind of like the “spreadsheet” of your natal chart. If you have a Taurus Rising, you’re gonna have Taurus in the 1st House, Gemini in the 2nd, and so on unless you have interceptions for something. This is so important to remember because the signs will always be in order. You’re not gonna have a Taurus Rising and then have Aries in the 9th House or something. If you have a Taurus Rising, you’re gonna have Aries in the 12th House unless you have an interception.
Another thing i want to be clear about is that people know that the Houses are the areas of life in a person’s natal chart. A horoscope is an analysis that tells you things that could happen based on the Houses. With that being said, people with the same Rising sign could have a somewhat similar life. Of course, all of that changes due to planetary placements, but the vibes shown by the signs ruling the Houses can give a collective vibe of what someone will go through.
Your Sun is also a planet. It could be in 12 different Houses. The house placement of your Sun is actually based from your Rising sign, which determines all the signs ruling your Houses, aka areas of life, which is what the horoscope is analyzing. It would make a lot more sense to look at the Rising sign than the Sun sign because a horoscope will look at current transits and say certain things according to how the transiting planets will affect you in your natal chart, which is determined by your Rising, not your Sun. Your Rising, not your Sun, orients the general vibe of how your areas of life connect to one another.
And if you have interceptions, you should definitely just go to an astrologer. Anybody honestly should go to a professional for transits. Everybody is unique and horoscopes are often made to encompass a whole population and it may not be 100% right until you 100% personalize it yourself and your chart.
Here’s a list with little things that might help when you have a bad body dysphoria day. (I wrote this especially with those of you in mind who can’t take any “big steps” (yet), so i excluded tips like “Buy a binder”.).
Of course, you are the one who knows best what’s helpful for you. This list is mostly meant to kick-start your own ideas when you feel stuck on what to do to feel better.
- Use shampoo/lotion/deodorant labeled as the gender you identify with (for example, for a trans boy - men’s shampoo).
- Write positive affirmations on little pieces of paper, fold them and put them in a box. On bad days, grab one and read it.
- Spend time with people who support you (including pets and online friends)
- Listen to your favorite music
- Follow some lgbt+-positivity blogs
- Pour your emotions into art: Draw, paint, sing or write
- Buy/wear one piece of clothing or accessory that represents your gender identity (it can be something small, like a ring)
- Practice breathing exercises (Sounds cliche but can be very calming)
- Make a list with the things that trigger your body dysphoria, so you can come up with ideas how to avoid or limit them
- Make a jar where you can save money in for your future steps (If you’re in the closet: Make up something you save money for, in case someone asks)
- Gather information for your future steps (for example, google how to legally change your name)
- Write a story with you as the main character, use your prefered pronouns and name (You don’t need to tell anyone they’re meant to represent you)
- Go for a walk, get some fresh air
- Look up trans/nonbinary Youtubers/Musicians
- Go to bed early
- Try to find something you like about your body (For example: My eyes, i can run really fast, this body survived a lot so far and it’ll survive this too)
- Try something new: If you never dance, try to dance, if you never bake, try to bake etc.
- It sounds silly but: buy yourself flowers (works especially well when you want to feel more feminine but can work for everyone - flowers have no gender!)
- Avoid looking in the mirror if it’s triggering
- If you want to feel more girly: bubble baths, browse websites of fashion magazines like Vogue, watch make up/beauty tutorials on Youtube, paint your nails (Choose clear polish for your finger nails or paint your toe nails instead (and wear closed shoes) if you don’t want people to ask), use chapstick
- If you want to feel more manly: Wear cologne, wear loose clothes, fill in your eyebrows (so they look darker/thicker), exercise (lifting weights can help you feel more masculine!), wear boxers
(Keep in mind that what helps one person may be triggering for someone else,so if anything on this list sounds unsafe for you, avoid it).
hey! do you know how to make money online? please help a desperate anon! <3
I know some ways, I fill up surveys online to earn money. I have a real job but extra cash is never bad, right?
That’s what I’ve been doing and I earn more or less $75+ per day depending on how many surveys I take, sometimes i get at least $100 on my day offs. It’s easy money, tbh. If you’re interested, I’ll leave this post just in case someone asks me again or you wanna look for it.
i feel weird? knowing i have the same name as ur bird
hey, think of it this way: my bird is really really good at saying ur name, in several different ways ranging from “rrrEEoh!” (a screech) to “riiiiiiioriiiiiiiiioriiiiiiiioriiiiiiio” (sounds kinda like a police car)
