not original photo i just edited it

yairyairdays replied to your photo “i flpped around the scene where kira dies and this just keeps on…”

I don’t think anything is wrong with the original, he’s on his side

I meant to point out how displaced his head looks compared to the neck and how small it is. Normally it’d be fine if it was in perspective but its not like intense enough to be accurate. Here’s a shitty edit of how it (probably) should’ve looked

I believe I just finished burning a bridge with a client. She sent me eight photos of people doing yoga with this request:

Client: Hey! I need you to edit these photos so that they’re more “original.” Do you have any ideas?

I’m pretty sure I know what she meant by “more original”; the images she sent all had watermarks and, with a google image search, I was able to find the original artist.  

trees shivering, the moon glimmering, there’s something strange, about how reality momentarily breaks, when the night sails past the midway, in the ocean of dark blue haze

Happy New Year,everyone! Ellie here (to some of you I’m Amy) I meant to post this sooner but I ended up making it into a New Years FF instead. This post goes out to old friends, new friends, favorite mutuals, and favorite blogs that I’ve followed for a long time (non-mutual).

To my longest followed mutuals and old friends @demonchildspath @nanobytes @katherinebarlow @irlaquarius @gahsofluffy @asfierceaslions @floresmortales @op4l @fiedlerandmundt : You are all so amazing and I love talking to all of you. Most of you have followed me for the longest time and have given me lots of great advice or have listened to me when I needed to vent during my darkest times. I appreciate that more than you know. Love you all very much.

To new friends @ju5t4n3rd @lilgothy @nonbinarylynz @transgee @piratejenne @the-final-pam @imyourproblemnow @peppermint-bork @acebuckie @vacationadventuresociety @mizardthewizard @vengefulfrnk @frnkensteingrl :Some of you I’ve known for most of 2016 and others I only started talking to as recent as two weeks ago and yet all of you have made such lasting impressions on me that I couldn’t not include any of you here. You’re all so talented and amazing. I love you all lots!

Just One Word Book Photo Challenge // by just0nemorepage // January 2017

Day 17: Prized.

My fave vintage book that I own. Bought it in London 10 years ago. This edition was published in 1914 and contains personal scribblings of the original owner, dated May 1914, all the way to the 1930s. It’s full of newspaper clippings that the owner cut out and inserted here, little articles and news about Dickens. It’s a majestic copy ♥

She surprised me at work and brought me a rose just cause she was thinking of me~ This is my first relationship with a girl and I’ve known I’ve been interested in fem types and girls in general since I was 12-13ish! I FEEL SO GAY AND HAPPY AHH!!


(Edit! Original art by @seto2 ! Photo is not my original artwork - sadly, I can’t remember the artist right now but search bubbline and I’m sure they will come up. )

“You don’t know whose side I’m on.”

I couldn’t decide which version of this I prefer, so I thought I would just post both of them! The second one is the latter version, but the first one was part of the original ‘putting-together’ of the edit and is much *softer*.

Inspired by Primavera, 3.02.



how to take studyblr photos

hi guys! here’s some advice on how to take photos of your notes and other things for your studyblrs. i’m not an authority on this or anything, this is just how i personally take and edit my pictures. i hope this helps for any new studyblrs out there, or helps out more experienced studyblrs!

  • try to take pictures in natural lighting.

i have a nice big window in my room, although this isn’t the best day for photography as it’s cloudy. 

things always look better in the sunlight than in the harsh artificial light of your desk lamp.

this may be harder if you study when it’s dark out, i recommend studying during the daytime - not only for easier photo ops. working with the sun streaming in will keep you awake and make you feel invigorated.

  • choose a background that works.

i have a variety of backgrounds in my photos, but it’s not because i have thirteen thousand desks. 

i use my 14x17 sketchbook for a white background, but no worries if you don’t have one! white paper can work if you’re taking a picture of a small thing. 

you don’t need a white background either! i often use my wooden desk as a background because it looks pretty nice. i prefer the white paper though, because my desk has paint stains everywhere. (whoops)

make sure you choose a background that will complement the thing you’re photographing! if it’s mostly white, use a dark background. if it’s colorful and bright, use white. if there’s barely any color on it, you could even use patterned scrapbook paper as a background to add a pop of color to your photo. place your item on a variety of backgrounds to see how it looks.

  • put stuff around it.

try framing your notes with different things - pens, pencils, even potted plants. see what looks nice.

  • try some different angles too.

maybe a closeup? straight-on? or a diagonal like this one? play around with your options and see what you think looks good.

  • once you’re satisfied with a photo, it’s time to edit it!

i use polarr, a desktop app you can get for free on the chrome web store. any photo editing application works though, whatever you prefer!

i usually increase the exposure and contrast, and a bit of the saturation. don’t saturate your photos too much, they’ll look too bright and unnatural.

just fiddle around until you’re satisfied!

  • tada!

now it’s time to post it! if you want your post to be noticed, tag it with #studyblr and #studyspo, and if your favorite blogs track tags, tag them too! if you tag a post with #tbwstudies, i’ll see it and probably reblog it! :)

  • a short, important psa

you can be a wonderful studyblr without jumping through so many hoops to take photos. in fact, i encourage you not to do this often. if you spend more time embellishing and photographing your notes than actually studying them, you have a problem. that’s not the purpose of the studyblr community.

i personally love taking pictures of my notes and sharing them because it encourages me to write them neatly and keep organized, and seeing them come up on my dash reminds me to get off tumblr and actually study. 

you can be part of the pretty notes section of studyblr or not, it’s all your personal choice. don’t feel pressured to have beautiful notes just because some studyblrs do. it’s their style of learning and reviewing, and if it doesn’t work for you, don’t bother.

how to make matching backgrounds for character aesthetics

I have had a lot of requests lately about how I make my character aesthetics. So here is a brief explanation of my process. To do this type of edit all you need is just basic editing skills and an original image that already has an light/white-ish background.This is my first tutorial so sorry if things aren’t super clear. Please message me if you have any questions! 

Here is my process to turn

Spoiler-free version here and here

(Episodes are not necessarily in chronological order - just the order in which I think they should be seen so viewers don’t get confused.)

Since my other post with the badly drawn cringe-worthy MS Paint timeline that I haphazardly threw together generated some buzz yesterday, I thought I’d clean it up a bit and post this new version instead. 

(Disclaimer: These are just my interpretation of the episodes, with inspiration from @daughterofthestars08′s original post, and should in no way be taken as the one true chronological order.)

If you have a grievance regarding the placement of Darkblade/Le Chevalier Noir in front of Pixelator/Numeric, you’re probably not the first one to message me about it. Please refer to this post first.

I’ll be updating the list periodically as episodes roll out.
