“Hey, Carl, I think I found something you’ll like.”

Carl the Animator: “Mmhmm?”

Ted the Animator: “Open up Photoshop, and load any random frame.”

Carl the Animator: “Gotcha.”

Ted the Animator: “…nice choice. Now, use the ‘quick selection’ tool to automatically grab most of the purple background.”

Carl the Animator: “Done.”

Ted the Animator: “Now, hit ‘delete’.”

Carl the Animator: “…it wants to use ‘Content-Aware’ fill. What’s that?”

Ted the Animator: “The funniest thing ever. Hit ‘ok’.”

Carl the Animator: “Ok, I was just–”

Carl the Animator: “…oh my gosh.”

Ted the Animator: “Told’ja.”

Carl the Animator: “That is… a masterpiece. The heck did it do?”

Ted the Animator: “Photoshop looked at the rest of the image, and tried to clone in a nice, natural background.”

Carl the Animator: “…which, I take it, doesn’t always work.”

Ted the Animator: “Yes indeedy. Try another.”

Carl the Animator: “Let’s see how it handles all the shapes in this one.”

Carl the Animator: “…freeeaaaky.’

Ted the Animator: “It looks like something you’d see in an ancient manuscript prophesying the end times.”

Carl the Animator: “What if we reverse it, and select a character instead?”

Ted the Animator: “Hm, smart.”

Carl the Animator: “…oh.”

Ted the Animator: “It’s like the creepiest invisibility cloak ever.”

Carl the Animator: “The selection tool likes to grab things weirdly, too… it just got Velma’s glasses while I dragged around her head.”

Ted the Animator: “Well, let’s see what happens.”

Carl the Animator: “…wow.”

Ted the Animator: “My favorite part is the elongated double face between Daphne and Fred.”

Carl the Animator: “Here, lemme grab one more from Aloha.”

Ted the Animator: “Should be a–… wait, Carl, you missed selecting one of the background guys’ fa–”

Carl the Animator:BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Ted the Animator: “Magnificent.”

Carl the Animator: “He looks so confused!”

Ted the Animator: “ ‘Um… hello? Anyone? How did I get inside this hair?’ “

Carl the Animator: “…can’t… breathe….”

Ted the Animator: “I’ll go put on another pot of coffee… it’s gonna be a looooong night of ‘shopping, I can feel it.”

Haven’t been posting any art lately on Tumblr haha so I decided to post this one here. 

Here’s something I’ve been working on the past few days. I was inspired by this artist I follow on Instagram where they draw their characters in real life photos. They make it seem so real, like their characters are actually real. I wanted to give it a try, but alas I cannot compete with such great talent orz
Idk actually, this to me looks pretty great, but at the same time, it’s not (?) I just have a mixed feeling about this. 

I also added a close-up of Jack so you can see him better.

You can use this as a background or repost it anywhere, but please don’t forget to give credit.
The background is not mine, I simply searched it up online lol.

“Why does Shaggy say the cafeteria ran out of food when there’s clearly more in the background?”

Carl the Animator: “…hey, you’re right!’

Ted the Animator: “Why would Shaggy lie about something like that?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, I guess they are only fruits and vegetables left, from the looks of it.”

Ted the Animator: “And a mysterious brown thing next to the pile of oranges.”

Carl the Animator: “…that could be a chicken, maybe?”

Ted the Animator: “Or a chocolate cake that fell from a helicopter.”

Carl the Animator: “That’s my headcanon.”

Lockscreens // Lady Gaga ~ Joanne Quotes

“Returning to your family and where you came from, and your history… this is what makes you strong. It’s not looking out that’s going to do that—it’s looking in… Joanne is a progression for me” Lady Gaga

Carl the Animator: “Um… what’s happening?”

Ted the Animator: “  ‘And thus, the yellow van – having finished its 7th cup of coffee – jittered off towards new adventures.’ ”

Carl the Animator: “I’m serious, what did I do to it?!”

Ted the Animator: “The background is moving once per frame, van is moving every other frame. Makes it look stuttery when not synced up.”

Carl the Animator: “…never mind, that’s boring. The coffee explanation it is.”

Do you have any tips for painting backgrounds?? oh my god i am STUNNED by your work!

HI THERE & THANKS!

as for some tips…just…references LOL. look at pretty pictures. both photography and paintings of places u think are cool! they usually give me a good basis for starting palette and space, and then from there I kind of build my own place depending on the composition. (Because I’ve pretty much been using backgrounds as a supplement to the piece, secondary to the figures involved..)

It’s not hard though! I’ll walk u through… (the meadows) (ha)

… *puts bob ross wig on*

throw in a sky

some foreground elements

flesh out some middle ground. I specifically kept the hills under their shoulders for emphasis on their heads, yknow??

add some happy mountains.

sprinkle in some flowers

throw on some extra lighting (mine is coming in from the right)

maybe add some happy clouds

some extra foreground elements to put icing on the cake!

I’m always adjusting my colors and values with the HSV slider (CTRL/CMD+U)

For this one I wanted a really pink/red thing goin on for Valentine’s day so that was my goal~ Hope this helps a little bit!

Hey Kel, is there any way you can do a tutorial on drawing in black and white then changing it to colour? I always see artists talk about doing that to preserve values but I don't understand how to transition from b&w to colour without just recolouring the whole picture. Thank you so much, you're always such a blessing ;w;

HI!! I don’t use that method to color, but it’s basically adding layers (with different coloring modes) on top of your b&w layer to get the final colored drawing. 

THIS IS A VERY QUICK EXAMPLE and you can definitely polish it further than what I did. At the end you can merge everything and paint over it to fix stuff/ brighten colors too. HERE are a couple of tutorials that explain it rly well I think: 1, 2, 3 !! This method is called glazing, so you could try googling that to find out more if you want!!

anonymous asked:

I heard the Izetta Spring Event is today!! Anything interesting happened?

It looks like a lot of fun!! A lot of the attendees said they laughed so hard their stomaches hurt xD

A recording of the event might surface after some time, but from what I can gather from comments of the attendees so far: (I might get some of the details wrong here)

- There’s day and night event, each lasting for two hours (a fun fact is there are more female attendees at night. And the event’s also gayer at night rofl)

- The Eylstadt national anthem playing in the opening lol the event is called “Eylstadt Spring National Assembly”

- They did a skit where Fine visited Izetta and Lotte in their hut and Izetta kept looking out the window excitedly and asking “Has Fine arrived yet?”. When Lotte finally said she had, Izetta and Dorothee burst out of the house and fell into the lake in their hurry (with her wheelchair??). Fine could only stare at her with an exasperated “Izetta…-_-” . This is fucking canon, I can’t stop laughing

- They confirmed that Fine visited Izetta quite often

- Although this time in the weekend Fine actually ran away for three days to visit her.

- Needless to say Bianca was pissed

- It seemed they did a live dubbing of that scene from episode 11. A LIVE DUBBING OF *THAT SCENE* FROM EPISODE 11. At night. In front of a crowd of onlookers. On a huge screen like this:

Can you imagine

(It’s a bit unclear whether they really did this or an original skit or something else. Either way they did the “Fine” “Izetta” namecalling with aaaaall of its romantic undertones, while the broomstick scene is playing in the background) (They also confirmed it was meant to be romantic. Like anybody still needed more convincing)

- And the commentary after that is pure gold
Akaneya: “I was embarrassed because that scene seems to have a sexy voice.”
(ARENT WE ALL)
Hayami: “The princess here is a little S (lol)”
Hayami: “It’s embarrassing to watch, but it was fun as I was doing it ♪” ← S
(HAYAMI YOU S)

- Hayami demonstrating her painting prowess and Fine’s ikemen voice, making everyone swoon. She drew Izetta so well that Akaneya commented something like “Princess you’re always looking at me closely aren’t you”

- When they talk about Rickert and Bianca’s shiptease and the seiyuus were all “But Princess…!!” and end up shipping Bianca with Fine instead (Everyone is gay for Fine. It’s scientific fact)

- People screaming “HIME-SAMAAAA” from the seats

- There’s also a live voice acting of those hilarious “Izetta of the Weekend” 4komas, scene commentaries, a funny quiz and ad lib, and implication for a spinoff consideration based on sales, but it’s not really clear

- “See you in the next Fall event!”
