someone asked about my process, so here’s how that last Cullen came to be. when i’m working in SAI, i work on one layer, and when i hit a point where i think it’s hanging together ok, i copy the layer and continue working, so that if i flub it up completely i can revert back to a previous layer copy instead of scrambling to fix it, which… as many of us know, can be a headache.
anyway, once things are almost done i usually do an extra layer for shading, another for colour tweaks, and another for bg or w/e? i keep beards and stubble on an additional layer too, in case i change my mind.
Here we are, with this new tutorial of
mine. This is like my third tutorial about my icons, since I’ve improved a lot and I’m happy that people would like to know my way of doing so
WHAT YOU NEED
A bit of photoshop vocabulary knowledge
Being a bit able to make icons
(I think it is very difficult to start making icons, it requires a lot of time
and dedication, seriously at least for me LOL)
Don’t use this tutorial if you want to recreate a tutorial like this(?), just use it as a base for your icons, piece of advice to make your own icons, since that some things that I learnt was thanks to other tutorials from youtube and Tumblr, that I really thank a lot. Some Others were thanks to my lil creativity, and the fact that I love experimenting things
sometimes you never realize how wonderfully extra a character is until you draw ‘em…anyway this is my first bnha fanart technically so that’s cool 💃🏻 maybe i’ll draw some non-screencap-redraws someday lol
hi it's the gif anon!! i was wondering if u could show how u size your gifs and how you make them look really nice and clear?? if that makes sense lol. anytime I try to make gifs they always turn out too small and blurry
Here’s a screen shot for the last anon! Zen loves ya just the way you are! ❤️ ^ submitted by @mochi-monster (I only recently opened submissions - forgive me I’m a noob and I don’t know how these work). Thank you!
Also thank you @grunedesu and @detective-rowan for bringing up that dialogue option where MC is worried about having gained weight. I never picked it myself (I think I chose to whine about the rent being expensive instead), but I’m not surprised that his response is basically “OH SHUSH you’re beautiful. Be kind to yourself”~
You know it would be pretty scary if my family even had to ask if I was in my bedroom . Of course I am. Where else would I be? Outside ? The club? With friends ? LOL.
If I got a text saying hey are you in your bedroom I would know instantly :
Ah, yes I must have a doppelgänger wandering around outside that my dear father has spotted, it seems I have found myself in some sort of horror tale!
How delightfully creepy! Wait no - that says chat stories wtf why is she chatting with her dad?????
Amy’s in the middle of typing out a text to Rosa (they’re ironing out the details for an upcoming shoot) when a notification pops up at the top of her screen. Her eyes flicker to it, and her heart skips a beat.
thatjakeperalta liked your post
She bites her bottom lip and shakes her head, mentally chastising herself for reacting to such a tiny thing. So he liked one of her Instagram photos, big deal.
She finishes off her text, confirming the stylists have been notified on the time and venue of their shoot, then switches over to her Instagram app. She just wants to check how well her last post is doing, she couldn’t care less about some model double-tapping on her picture.
Even if he is ridiculously attractive and funny and by far the nicest model she’s worked with in the seven years of her professional career.
She brings up her activity feed, which is filled with likes and comments from her industry friends and other followers. It’s the message at the top that again throws her off for a second.
She was expecting to find that he had liked her most recent photo, but the thumbnail beside the notification isn’t this morning’s sunrise. Instead, it’s her smiling at the camera excitedly. Rosa had snapped the photo when they had reached the destination of their hike nearly a year ago.
Before she can fully process this, she gets a slew of new notifications – all about thatjakeperalta liking her photos.
Her cheeks redden a smidge, and a grin spreads on her face as she realizes what’s going on. He’d been stalking her Instagram, and this is him trying to cover his tracks.
She’s definitely been there, and she knows how embarrassing it feels. But also, she just can’t resist gloating in his misery.
She quickly takes a screencap of the page and sends it to him. For good measure, she texts:
Working hard, I see.
On Jake’s end, he’s absolutely mortified.
He’s past contemplating cutting off his thumb for getting him in this mess, and he’s right about ready to change his name and go off the grid. He’s pretty darn sure his mom wouldn’t mind, so long as he sends her a postcard every now and then.
He reads Amy’s text and groans loudly, burying his burning face in his pillow. If he could just go back in time and stop himself from liking a photo posted 48 freaking weeks ago.
Eventually, he lifts his head up and reaches for his phone on the nightstand. He pulls up the message again and sighs, wondering how he’s going to charm his way out of this.
It takes awhile, but he finally replies:
just doing research on this photog i’m working with next week. she’s ayt i guess?? :P
Amy snickers and takes a second to attach an old photo of him she had found when doing “research” of her own. It’s him in a cough syrup ad from at least five years ago, and he’s looking like he’s at death’s door.
I’m not sure about this model I was assigned for a shoot. Do you think I should just call off the gig?
The pit of dread in his stomach eases up, and he chuckles.
i’ll have you know, i got free cough meds for months after that. it was p sweet when flu season came around.
and ngl, there was like a span of 4 years where i just said yes to everything.
the modeling world is crayyyyyy.
The next thing he receives is a photo of him holding a snake. There’s more of a grimace on his face than a smile.
Did you get to keep the snake after this or did the pet store give you other freebies?
He laughs and gets up to grab one of the folders on his shelf. He hasn’t really been compiling his latest tear sheets, but his mom used to catalog his earliest work. He finds the oldest folder and flips to one of the first pages – a photo of him as a toddler, donning only a Baby Looney Tunes-themed diaper and beaming. He snaps a picture of the ad and sends it over.
i hit my prime early and everything’s just been downhill after
you think i’m ever going to get back to this level???
She lets out an aww and makes a mental note to dig up the rest of his childhood work later. (Over the weekend, when she does find the time to hunt through various online archives, she finds herself having to squash down the image of a tiny Jake Jr. running around her apartment. She chalks it up to her hormones and natural maternal instincts.)
She goes back to her Instagram app and scrolls through the photos he’s been tagged in. Her eyebrows shoot up at some of the earliest pictures, where he’s styled to look like genderbent Disney princesses. She vaguely recalls this going viral back in her college days, and she isn’t sure how she didn’t put two and two together. She double-taps on all of them and sends over a screencap of her favorite one.
I didn’t realize this was you! This photo series was so cool!!! How did I miss that looksbylinetti was your make up artist?
lol yeah isn’t gina amazing?! fun fact: this was the project that got me an agent. shout out to charles and his love for disney!
So amazing. I have to bug Gina about this at our next shoot. You think she’d be open to doing a redux on these? We need to do one of you as Elsa!
He’s typing out his reply when he’s interrupted by a call from Gina Linetti herself. “Hello?”
“GIRL, YOU GOTTA ASK AMY OUT ASAP BECAUSE SHE’S TOTES STALKING YOU ON INSTA RIGHT NOW.”
He laughs. “Yeah, I know.”
“Uh- wait, ARE YOU WITH HER RIGHT NOW? Explain yourself, Jacob.”
“We’ve just been texting. It’s nothing. I accidentally liked one of her photos from a year ish ago, so we’ve been talking.”
“Okay normally I’d disown you for that, but obviously your faux pas worked out somehow so.”
“I mean nothing’s happened really, but -”
“Nothing’s happened yet, boo! Okay, go back to flirting with Santiago or whatever. I’ll see ya at the shoot next week!”
Jake grins goofily in spite of himself, thankful he’s not in front of a camera for once.
Ok I need this information to stay sane. what chat and which dialogue option you choose to get that answer about Zen's needy mind HOW COME I MISSED THIS GEM also if it's not a problem you once posted a screen of chat where Zen's talks about a character he is going to play who is awfully like him but he's so oblivious about it. I was laughing my ass for solid ten minutes and this post still makes my day but I did all routes and I wasn't lucky to get it T__T When did that chat happen?
Here’s all the info, dear ͡ ° ͜ʖ ͡ – ✧
Zen’s “kinda stupid” character: Casual common route day 2, “Romance novel company” (8:05 pm). Skip the chat. Or just don’t participate in it, read it later. I recommend that you miss all chats in the prologue at least once (it takes zero effort and zero hgs after all :P), because all the characters tend to say new things when you’re not around. Like Jaehee mentioning playing hide-and-seek with Elizabeth “using the butterfly toy” or Zen calling V “mom”.
Needy Zen Day one, “Zen’s expectation” (around 9:50 pm). This one is tricky because it’s one of three options that branches from a branch of three options (if that makes sense lol). I replayed day one so many times, and yet I only found this gem yesterday by accident. Pick “I’m excited for all the things to come” after he asks you how you feel about joining the RFA. He’ll say something very flirty. And now we play dumb:
Hello, I would like for you…no. I /want/ you to take time to look at my boyfriend.
He is literally the most gorgeous being to ever been created. Now don’t be mistaken, it’s not a beautiful sculpture that you are looking at. No, he’s real. I need everyone to appreciate Yurio and how absolutely amazing he is.
Yurio is so determined, so dedicated and goes beyond the limits of his own body.
I feel honored that I even got to see a glimpse of his sheer beauty with his hair tied in a ponytail and getting the time to fully admire his features. What beautiful eyes. He’s truly a work of art.
So please, take time to appreciate and acknowledge this magnificent boy.
screencapped and emailed to my lawyer. She will have filed charges by tomorrow afternoon. By law We must allow you 48 hours to remove the offending material. If not, you will be charged with defamation of character, libel, and criminal mischief, all misdemeanors. You will face a judge trial.
i love love love love love your icons!? have you made (or will you make) an icon tutorial? mine never turn out as good as urs
thank you so so so so so so much!!!!!!! it’s been asked so many times that i’m just gonna do it right now lol. i admit i checked other icon tutorials to have an idea of how to start this. do i really need to type what you’ll need? anyway. english isn’t my first language btw so if you don’t understand something feel free to come ask me. even if it’s a stupid question, those are the easiest for me k? wink
Ok I’ll be honest, only about half these screencaps exist because I have something to say. The rest just because fuck you Killian Jones, YOU’RE FAR TOO PRETTY AND I AM OFFENDED.
Like RIGHT off the bat, I am assaulted by the pretty. HOW is this fair?
And then THIS lol! I love how they’re just chasing him in a STRAIGHT ASS LINE lolol. THERE’S SO MANY OF THEM AND ONE OF HIM AND NO ONE THOUGHT, HEY MAYBE WE SHOULD SURROUND HIM OR SURPRISE HIM OR CUT HIM OFF LIKE NO NO. LET’S JUST CHASE HIM IN A STRAIGHT ASS LINE. IT’S NOT LIKE WE LIVE HERE OR ANYTHING OR KNOW THE ISLAND OR ANYTHING. I just love this lol because they’re little boys after all.
AND HE OFFERS THEM RUM LOL
BUT HOLD ON WHAT THE FUCK
FUCK YOU KILLIAN JONES FOR LOOKING SO BEAUTIFUL WHEN BEING SO EXASPERATED.
THE I’VE GOT SOMEBODY WAITING AT HOME FOR ME KILLED ME DEAD OK.
More exasperated pretty for gratuitous reasons because fuck you Killian Jones.
Fuck YOU Killian JONES.
I LOVE IT SO MUCH WHEN HE SMILES. IT WARMS THE CORNERS OF MY TINY HEART.
How do you draw Shiro? I've been trying but it doesn't come out right, if you don't mind do you think you can do a small tutorial of it? You don't have to though
fghdfs dont worry bud that usually happens to me when trying to draw a new character! I’m sure with practice you’ll draw him just fine soon ^^
but uuhh hM since you’ve asked for it heres a basic runthrough of how i draw my shiros lol (im sorry im really bad at explaining things;;)
a little piece of advice; use a lotta official screencaps for refs! try to focus on the characteristics of their facial features that distinguishes them from other characters. hope this helps even a little!
