“The message that advertisers put out that if you’re skinnier you’re better, if you have no cellulite you’re better, if you have no rolls you’re better, if your legs don’t touch you’re better, if you have perfectly smooth skin and so on….. ➡️Products and surgery designed to fix all of these “"flaws” so we can all just look like cookie cutter versions of each other, as if one version of beauty and health is all there is. WRONG ! ➡️Why should the investment interest of advertisers come before the well-being of women and humans all together⁉️ ✨✨✨We need to continue to show diversity, to push for mental and physical health above a thigh gap, to push for self love , acceptance and empowerment just as we are . I have cellulite sometimes and it’s NORMAL . I will not photoshop , apologize, or shame my body . I feel beautiful, I am strong , I am capable, I am healthy and I am perfect just as I am and so are you”

How do you edit your gameplay pics of Bun? I really love how radiant it looks and it's really pleasing <3

first, oh my god, thank u so much!!! ♥ second, i think you might’ve set yourself up to something unexpected, because this tutorial is loooong. but!! here we go!

this has been asked before, but i always put it off hoping that ONE DAY i’d have a consistent editing style… but i’m afraid that’s never going to happen. so this walkthrough will be messy, and weird, and have a lot of ‘optional’ stuff in it, but i will try to include everything i might do. also, i suggest you look at this link as well, because it includes every action and psd i might use while editing, as well as the blurring methods i use, my topaz settings, and a description of how i soften my pictures. so if something doesn’t make sense here, check there, and you might find your answer.

note: this is long and very picture heavy!

How do you get your animal crossing screenshots to look so smooth, rather than all pixelated??

Well! I take a majority of my screenshots on miiverse as using L and R is a big hassle…

Pretty, huh? Now once I have the miiverse screen shot (which you can grab from your computer) I put it through waifu2x on these settings:

Click convert and you’ll picture should look like this:

Does it look neat? Now next, what I do is put it through photoshop cs6. Once opened go to Filter >> Noise >> Reduce Noise

These are the settings I use:

You can adjust it as you see fit!

Next go to Filters >> Sharpen >> Smart Sharpen

So far so good! Now, next to make that smooth dreamy feeling I go to the Gradient Map tool and use the third option 

Set the opacity to about 15-25%, merge the two layers and voila!

A soft looking screenshot! 


I hope this helps, anon…I’m bad at tutorials ^^;

hi! your art is beautiful. like i'm always so stunned whenever you post. i'm an artist too, but whenever i paint something i can never blend very cleanly. how do you make your skin look so... smooth? if you don't want to answer that's fine :)

ok so this is a really quick and messy example but I slap down some colours that I’ll be using with my flat bristle brush in sai

then I’ll select a colour from one of these areas and, using a lower opacity brush, put strokes of that colour where it touches a different colour to create a transition colour, then selecting that colour I’ll repeat the same idea so that you get smaller patches of colours that looks smoother than before

you can just leave it like that or refine it a little more with increasingly smaller brush sizes for a more painterly look but I enjoy having smooth and soft looking skin so I take my watertool and blur the strokes a bit to reduce texture - I don’t blur too large of an area too much tho, otherwise it all just becomes one even colour and takes away from the point of shading

this is probably one of the main reasons why I only paint in PaintTool Sai and not photoshop haha, I’m so used to using the water tool in my art to smooth out strokes lol

Was listening to music the other day and realized that it’s a good opportunity to mess with headcanons about what genres Akira and the gang could like so messed around I did

I should probably draw this on something bigger than 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper tho :v

I need to practice motion lines… Akira’s headbanging looks weird without the (terrible) bit I did as is :P

Also, I decided to fuck around with it on Photoshop to give a bit more personality to the characters by using fonts (plus I edited some of the dialogue for fun) and try to smooth the drawing out …I fucked it up, obviously

I'm confused,,, what is the issue with Smooth Lin??

ok listen just as a general rule airbrushing someone’s face into a smooth and blemishless nightmare is going to look…very unsettling.. for the record tho it is hilarious that people think they can photoshop the eye bags off of Human Eye Bag Lin Miranda and no one will notice

BUT as i said the Actual Issue w smooth lin is that like… 90% of the time not only do they go way overboard with the airbrushing they also lighten his skin tone a lot

anyway this happens to basically everyone in the entertainment industry who isnt white so lets as a society stop doing that

You're editing is so unique and makes my gameplay look so foreign to yours! I love it. Have you ever considered sharing what your screenshots look like before the editing process?

Thanks so much! And sure, I can do that! Here’s a before picture:

I play on ultra settings, but I have edge smoothing and anti-aliasing turned off because I use Reshade. Here’s the same picture after applying Reshade and then editing the screenshot in Photoshop:

Much better! If you want to know how I did it, you can find my editing process on my blog!

anonymous asked:

hi!! ive been scrolling thru ur blog for a while now and im just wondering; how do u make everything look so clean and not-pixelated at the edges? is it a mod for the game or is it a photoshop thing? ty!!

hey! for me, i’ve found three things really help with pixelated edges:

1. in game, having edge smoothing on high helps a ton with jagged/sharp edges (think this is under the graphics tab?)
2. using topaz clean, but more specifically, when you go into topaz clean, using the ‘edges’ section smooths out edges loads. i usually have accent on 2 (and that somewhat affects the strength of the edge smoothing)
3. when you cut your sims out from a background, use refine edge (ctrl + alt + r) and under the ‘adjust edge’ section use the smooth and feather options a bit to smooth out your selection. i have smooth on 3 and feather on 0.5

hope this helps!

I just discovered your blog and I'm enjoying it a lot so far! I had a bit of a vent I guess - I've been working out doing the blogilates beginner calendar and cardio for a month now + eating as healthy as I can and I'm definitely feeling a bit stronger etc - I just don't really see it and sometimes it gets me really down, I've cried over how I still have lower belly fat etc. I don't know if it's in my head or if I'm really doing something wrong.

Hi hun! I’m so glad you like my blog and find it helpful! And CONGRATULATIONS on committing to a healthy lifestyle for a month already!!

Ok so there’s a lot to tackle in your questions:

1) You do not have to change your body in order to be beautiful. You are gorgeous, and all your friends are gorgeous, and all the other girls at your school/work are all gorgeous and lovely.

Your desire to compare yourself or your belly or your whatever to another woman’s and somehow feel bad about your own body is an act of self-destruction you were taught by the patriarchal culture that benefits financially from women feeling insecure. If every woman suddenly loved her body so many companies would go out of business IMMEDIATELY. So fuck the patriarchy and love your powerful body.

2) Age makes a big difference. Like if you’re anywhere from 12-17 you’ve basically got a bubbling cauldron of hormones inside of you that’s determining what’s going to happen to your body. Exercise and healthy food is absolutely benefiting your body but in terms of how you look your hormones are basically taking over and being all “WE WILL GROW HERE AND HERE AND NOT HERE”, (and that’s mostly determined by your genetics). Your body is putting on fat because that’s what it does during the painfully awkward years of puberty, so that it can become an Adult Woman body that can carry and feed a baby. Your body is still developing and so it’s especially important for you to prioritize health over looking a certain way.

3) Blogilates and a bit of cardio is a fantastic combination that is absolutely worth continuing as long as you enjoy it. Change does take time. Again, so many (scam) companies benefit from us expecting ridiculous transformations overnight, because then we get discouraged with healthy methods and turn to their useless (and at worst dangerous) products instead. The truth is if you are making healthy changes then your body IS changing. Just not at the speed that advertisements/BS reality tv tries to sell us. Real change takes time. You are getting stronger. Be patient with yourself.

4) Enjoy trying different things. Like I said, blogilates is wonderful. But don’t force yourself to stick with one thing if you find yourself wanting to explore something else. Wanna try a dance class? Go for it! A new sport like soccer or roller derby? Yes!  Weight training? Get a good coach and lift that shit! Boxing? BEAST MODE ACTIVATE. Variety is the spice of life and it’s SO important to keep fitness fun and exciting.

5) Regarding food I want to make sure you’re actually eating healthier, not just BS “diet culture” healthy. Real healthy food is lots of fresh veggies and fruits, protein, less-processed fats (like olive oil and avocados instead of margarine), and whole grains (brown rice. whole wheat, etc). “Diet culture” healthy is really processed stuff that’s “fat free” or “low carb” or other weird marketing gimmicks and are totally unhealthy for you. So avoid the weird fat-free cookies and enjoy real food instead.

6) I kind of want to circle back to point #1… It’s incredibly hard to get out of that comparison mindset, and the fact that we’re surrounded by heavily retouched images makes everything worse. Because we end up comparing our own bodies to a body that doesn’t even exist. Photoshop/lighting tricks/etc. have become so extreme that a freakishly processed image looks normal to us and real human bodies look wrong to us… it’s really messed up. So I wanted to include some images of undeniably fit women to try to expand your perception of what’s healthy… So here are some pictures of incredible athletes Serena Williams and Ronday Rousey (who train multiple hours every day because it’s literally their job) and model Lauren Graham (who’s also healthy and gorgeous):

And also notice how even THESE pictures have been photoshopped? Look at Lauren’s and Ronda’s knees, how small Serena’s left arm is, everyone’s impossibly smooth skin without shadows or cellulite, etc… Even these images don’t accurately represent healthy bodies because they’ve been retouched so much… So please remember all of this next time you’re tempted to feel bad about your body. Also, because it can’t be said enough, fuck the bodyshaming sexist patriarchy. You and your body deserve better.

What program do you use to make your stickers and font? At first I thought it was photoshop but it looks way less complicated. It looks so smooth and clean!

I use mainly Adobe Illustrator CC! Sometimes, I use Photoshop CC, but only for image editing or digital painting! :) 

anonymous asked:

how do you mix colors in photoshop? your paintings look really nice and smooth

If you use the colour picker/eyedrop, at the top you can change its picking range (I usually set mine to 11 by 11 average), so if you pick between two colours it picks a combination of those two, if that makes sense. I do this to blend colours together
