not sure if i like the coloring but ok

MEA: Ryder Meme 

I was tagged by @liamkosta <3

Name: Charlotte Lorena Ryder (known as Lottie - she’s only been called Charlotte about 5 times in her life tbh)

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Not sure yet.  Thinking of mum or grandma being Latina.

Eye Color: Bright blue-green

Hair Color/Description: Natural - black.  Dyed - brown with a plum purple wash that fades to teal blue at the tips.  (Bioware will never let me have this but I can dream ok)

Skin (Color, blemishes, tattoos, ect): Natural tan, a few freckles on nose? because I love them??? haven’t decided on scars yet, probably has a colourful tattoo somewhere

Misc physical attributes: Always looks like she’s just rolled out of bed, but it’s the annoyingly attractive version and everyone hates her for it.  Basically a Complete Mess™ (Alec hates it like please can you look like a professional for once in your goddamn life).  Probably wanders around the Tempest wearing ripped denim dungarees over her Andromeda Initiative tee with circle sunglasses and old converse or smth.

Preferred romance option: Vetra or Liam

Relationship with Alec & Sibling (Do they get along? ect.): Really close to Scott (because I love sibling love), but will probably have some major daddy issues (because I have enough daddy issues to project onto every single OC I create and still have some to spare lmao).  I’m personally imagining the twins to be (have been?) much closer to Ellen than Alec, but we’ll see how the story pans out I guess?

Projected BFF (The squad mate who isn’t bae but you always take): Whichever one of Vetra or Liam I don’t romance :p  Maybe Cora but I’m not sure about her yet because HARPER

Dreams/Hobbies/Likes: Loves. Exploring.  Favourite things are flowers, tech, milkshakes and sniper rifles.  Just wants to keep moving and see as much of the universe as she can in her short life.  Also likes inventing things/tinkering.  The kind of person who reads encyclopedias for fun and blurts out random “did you know”s all the time, making Scott groan and/or throw things at her.

Fears/Dislikes: She’s afraid of being a disappointment to her mother (or her mother’s memory, if Mama Ryder turns out to be dead), and of being separated from Scott.  Dislikes places with no colour, unnecessary rules and regulations, shoddy equipment, being ordered around or told to stay put, plus other shit I haven’t thought of yet.

Other (What else should we know about your Ryder): Idk I kind of want to create this character who seems like a clumsy mess on the outside but who is actually really methodical and focussed when it comes to certain things, like tinkering, training and combat.  Like, gives zero (0) fucks most of the time but when it comes to That Thing she gives every single fuck.  (Why does that sound familiar ha ha).

Ayyyy this will probably all change when the game comes out but whatever :’)

I don’t know who to tag who hasn’t done this but please feel free to say I tagged you if you’d like to do it :)

A new chapter has commenced! ok. So uh colors are the bane of my existence I’m pretty sure. I tried to go with a color palette, but then I deviated away from that, and then I took a break to cry on the floor in fetal position because COLORS DON’T LIKE ME! Well uh they aren’t actually that bad, but I do struggle a bit with them. And that’s part of the reason I’m doing this comic in color; it’d be much easier to just make it black and white, but I want to improve my coloring.

Also I hope you like Undyne’s little invoking of Mettaton :)

Btw if you want to make a comic dub of this, please go ahead! I totally encourage it. Just please give credit to me and unrestedjade.

I hate that “The Mummy” trailer so much. And it’s sad, because I like the idea of bringing back the classic Universal Monsters. I grew up on them and I still love them. But I could barely get through the trailer.

It’s not about Sofia Boutella as The Mummy. I like that The Mummy is a woman and the actress is Algerian, as super pale and ashen as she looks in the trailer. But like. OK, we have a woman of color playing The Mummy, and like 7/8 of the trailer is focused on Tom Cruise and some blonde woman? 

Give me the name of an actor who played a non-mummy character in the Boris Karloff Mummy. On those old movie posters, the name “Karloff” was as big as “Mummy.” 

But now? Clearly a Cruise movie.

And sure, Brendan Fraser was the star of the 1990s Mummy movies, but this is supposed to be bringing back the Universal Monsters, which, to me, means the monster should be top billed.

Instead we get Tom Cruise on a crashing cargo plane being all Mr Action Hero Guy while only saving the blonde white woman as the extras of color go down in flames. 

In a movie where the monster (and look, I love movie monsters, don’t get me wrong) is a woman of color, half the trailer was about a white woman being protected. 

Yeah, I do have a problem with that.

On Wednesday, I had a bad breakdown. Although I’m 20 years old, I’m a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to liking guys. Recently, I started taking interest in a guy. Many of the people that know me know that I’ve been a victim of colorism, and a victim of many black guys’ jokes. Furthermore, I’ve always had a stigma with having any contact with black guys, because I wasn’t sure how they saw me. Fast-forward, I recently told the guy about a month ago how I felt about him, and he just told me that he’s just focusing on himself. Ok? Cool, right? NOPE! We’ve had conversations where he’s told me that he’s interested in dating (not me in particular). Mind you, he goes to school where the majority is white, so he hangs out with nothing but white girls. So, the whole situation had me questioning myself. Fast forward to a few days ago, I was sitting in the studio with him, and he gets a text. Once he gets the text, he gets all excited, he even ASKED WHAT HE SHOULD HE SAY!!! He asked like I never told him how I felt. I just played along. For some reason, I knew it was a white girl, because that’s all he associates himself with . When I got home, I was so frustrated. I was frustrated because I felt maybe if I was light or white, he’d respond better and like me too. I started filling myself up with nonsense about me not being beautiful because of my dark skin. I was in hysterics, asking my mom “Why did you make me dark?” It took me back to a place that I overcame 8 years ago. Sad right? To me, it’s not about getting male approval , it’s about being accepted and loved by my own.

Ultimately, thanks to my mommy, sister, and friends I gathered myself back together and realized that I’m not going to let the indecisiveness of a guy mess with my confidence.

Me: idk guys. I think grey is a pretty dull color?? Like it’s kind of boring and I’m not sure that it’s an OK choice for anything besides clothing tbh.

Yuta: *airport previews w grey hair*

Me: lol you don’t like grey??¿¿??¿?¿??¿ I LoVe grey!!¡!! Like how could you not love grey?? The most vibrant of all of the colors??? I have grey sweaters, hats, scarves, pants, coats, binders, pencils, pens, and shoes. You name it, I have it lol. Grey is such a A nice and warm color tbh. So welcoming and calming. If you don’t like grey then you’re just INASANE. Grey is the beginning, middle, and end of all things with color and texture. It is the backbone of today’s society along with the people that run Disney. If you don’t like grey, then you’re missing out on-

anonymous asked:

Is Sunati faceblind?

I wasn’t intending to portray Sunati as faceblind, I just wanted to show how with the prevalence of mods it might be very difficult to recognize someone you haven’t seen in a while. You’re free to interpret her as faceblind if you want though, I don’t think there’s anything in the comic that contradicts this interpretation :)

Anonymous said to alwayshumancomic:ok so im sure u get this a lot but i really really like how you color.,… like both in your color choice and the way you do it

Awww, you’re sweet, thank you so much anon <3 I love colouring a lot, it’s definitely my favorite part of the art process.

words-writ-in-starlight replied to your post: leupagus replied to your post: …

Wait, what the FUCK was that movie?

OK STORY TIME

So my mom hated all Bobby Darin/Sandra Dee films on like a bedrock second-wave feminism principle. She hated the color pink, she hated barbies, she hated anything that was too “girly.” But she ESPECIALLY hated Sandra Dee movies based, I think, on the abundance of frills and pink.

So NO ONE believed her about this “imaginary” movie she was SO SURE existed where Sandra Dee uses a dog training manual to make Bobby Darin into the best husband. She could never remember much about the film beyond that and a vivid description of the final scene in which Sandra Dee comes home and finds Bobby Darrin literally down on all fours with his leash in his mouth, coming out of the doghouse he has built in their apartment.

WE LAUGHED AT HER EVERY TIME IT CAME UP. WE. LAUGHED.

But then my sister went through this old films phase where she, like, learned all these ways of hunting down copies of films no one else could get. (I have never questioned this power and y’all don’t really get how magical it was back in the day before youtube and streaming and itunes and whatnot, but she had CONNECTIONS. I think she had an In at TCM?)

But yeah so for a birthday present, my sister tries to hunt down this film based only on the dog training thing.

BOOM. IT EXISTS. 

This is the movie.

It turns out the dog training manual is only one of the plotlines? If I remember correctly, there’s also a question of whether Sandra Dee’s Italian or Boston ancestry is dominant and that they switch? And there’s like a music cue and she goes, “BOSTON COLD” and then like cold shoulders Bobby Darin until he pleases her in some way? And she does indeed get a dog training manual and she does indeed use it on him? And he is unaware and I think it turns out that it makes their marriage, like, the envy of all around them. Only then he finds the manual and is butthurt that she would use a dog training manual on him and they almost split, but then he realizes he is the subbiest sub ever that he really loves her or whatever and does the final scene where she comes back to apologize but he has the dog leash and is willing to be her pet forever and ever amen.

That is my summary and my mom gloated FOR YEARS.

[Artist: Been waitin’ for so long to post this omg… but coloring this shit was actually kind of hard and it was tedious process that was frustrating ok. Anyways, we got it! One of them officially admitted to liking the other. Like for real, set in stone kind of shit. Even tho the poor bab is still confused and a slight bit in denial, he knows he likes Blueberry, he’s just gotta accept it now. 

In other news! I’m 2 follows away from 400!!! Just like, whoa!!! That’s amazing! Hope ya’ll are ready for that errorberry comic because I know I sure am! There’s probs gonna be a few parts to it and I’ll try to make it longish, but I dunno yo this will be my first time trying to do something big. But yeah, I’m gonna sleep now since it’s almost five AM… haha…. Goodnight/Morning!]

anonymous asked:

Hi! I just wanted to say I love your art. I really love how you use colors and colorful lighting (does that make sense..?) and I wish I could do something like that. Thanks for drawing beautful kookmin art!

HELLO NONNIE

I know you didn’t ask for this but I’m doing it anyways because i have been getting a few messages about this and I’m nothing if not a masochist so I want to quickly show you that I ACTUALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING and you, too, can be just as effortlessly clueless as me when it comes to making your art shiny and colorful or whatever!

65% of digital art is knowing all the right ways to ‘cheat’. I use quotations bc it’s not reeeeeally cheating, but it sure feels like it. I’m allowed to say this, I spent 60k on an art education, ok. It especially feels like it to me because, I repeat, I usually have zero idea what I’m doing.

Digital art has so many tools at our disposal and yet we tend to overlook and forget about them. One of the tools that I tend to abuse use are blending modes in Photoshop. Here’s some quick and dirty examples:

Take this drawing I did of Jimin for example:

This is what I painted. It’s bland, the colors are boring, and it’s a little flat. I spent most of my effort on getting shapes and forms somewhat presentable. I’m an expert at laziness and doing the bare minimum and it shows here. Now save for adding some darker lashes to him, I got to this end result…

…by doing no more painting whatsoever. I literally just used the tools given to me in Photoshop. I don’t have the layered file anymore because I accidentally saved over it (don’t be like me kids), but here’s a basic overview of what I did:

  • laid down some VERY SATURATED bright colors randomly over the image with a large soft brush. You can seem some pinks on his lower body, and greens and blues on each arm respectively. 
  • set that layer with those bright colors to something like lighten. I forget exactly what blending mode I used, but you can really just play with all of them until you find something you like. i scroll thru the options five or six times before settling on something i like

  • blurred the bottom of the image to give it some fake depth feeling to it

  • added a fucking space picture for texture that i got off nasa (really! NASA IMAGES ARE PUBLIC DOMAIN AND FREE TO USE PEOPLE) and just set that layer to lighten and masked out the majority of it to where only small accents remained.

that’s literally it. here’s a detailed closeup of jimin:

and hey! you suddenly have a little bit more of a dynamic image without having to hardly do diddly squat. ISN’T ART GREAT, SO INSPIRING, WOW.

here’s another image that i did literally the bare minimum on:

when i say i did the bare minimum i really did. please don’t judge me too hard.

here’s what i actually painted.

this is a little embarrassing, lol. it’s just very basic shapes.

then i blurred the entire image and painted in some very faint details in the bg (like the extra branches and little bit of lighting in the bg)

then i added some of those bright colors on blending mode layers to give it some “lighting”…

here’s what the layers look like, and you can see the colors i used:

  • top layer: lighten
  • middle layer: screen

  • bottom layer: soft light

and then I added a space texture because i am NOTHING without my space textures:

and there you have a screen cap redraw I did in like an hour.

what’s that you say? more examples? let’s say you don’t necessarily want to change the lighting of a drawing, but the entire TONE of a drawing. you have a colder image you want to turn warm? i have just the thing:

THAT’S RIGHT MORE BLENDING MODES

i did this exact thing with this image:

contrary to what i may have lead people to believe, i’m actually shit at color palettes and color theory in general. i save all that legwork for photoshop. HERE is what i ACTUALLY painted:

completely different. but this is just how i work, i tend to work in pretty neutral colors and then adjust either as i go or after the fact. 

i started with adjusting the bg. i knew i wanted something really warm in tone, so i slapped a nice warm fill layer over it. i also added a tiny big of texture to the wall and a shadow on the floor to make it feel more dynamic.

here’s what those layers look like:

the adjustment layers are highlighted. the top his a orange to pink gradient set to multiply, middle layer is the texture, and the bottom layer is a midtone purple set to multiply with opacity at 69%.

then on to the figures. here’s my layers:

it’s literally just a bunch of playing around. this is more shadows at the bottom to give depth and some random saturated colors to give an interesting dynamic to the image. (don’t overuse this… it’s really easy to but try to resist. bright saturated lighting does NOT work on every image.)

then I added a warm orangeish fill layer and set that to multiply and well… this was the end result.

now i should say that i don’t always take such drastic shortcuts with my drawings. i do spend tons of hours on some paintings from time to time. but even with those i STILL use adjustment layers and blending modes and filters to enhance the art. example, everything i painted by hand on the left, and the same finished piece with adjustment layers:

it’s something that almost every artist does, and it’s time we stop pretending like people do this naturally, it makes aspiring artists work for something that isn’t attainable.

this ended up super long but i hope anyone who is looking for tips and tricks of improving the aesthetic of their drawings found this somewhat helpful. if you have any questions about specific processes, don’t hesitate to ask.

Fetch! (Wanda Maximoff x Reader)

“(Y/N)! Stop poking me!” Nat said playfully. It was a boring and hot summer day. You and Nat, who had taken you under her wing since you joined the Avengers, to a point you sometimes called her ‘mom’, were laying on a couch.

She was reading a magazine and you were finding new ways to annoy her and kill your boredom at the same time.

“But, I am bored.” You groaned and she chuckled.

“Ok, I shouldn’t probably do that. But…” her known sneaky smirk formed on her lips as she got up and motioned you to follow her.

She guided you to a room that looked like a storage room and opened the door. You gasped at the sight. Steve’s uniforms were neatly folded in shelves, his boots had their own drawer, his gloves were put around creating a perfect color palette. This man sure loved order.

But, what caught your attention was the shining shield that was calling for you behind the glass.

Natasha, like she read your mind, opened the glass case and handed you the shield. “There.” She said, her smirk never leaving its place. “Go play with your friends.” You rolled your eyes but took the shield nevertheless, earning a giggle from Nat, who shuffled your hair.

You put the shield in your arm and flash her a confident smile. “You could definitely cover Steve in a day off.” She smiled and you saluted her and sprinted towards your girlfriend’s room.

You opened without knocking as per usual, and found Wanda and Pietro, laying on Wanda’s bed, their legs spread on the wall and their heads hanging down off the bed.

“What are you guys doing?” you laughed and the shield almost dropped off your arm. “Meditating.” Pietro mocked and got up. “Where did you get that?” his thick accent filling the room as he approached you and touched the shield, hesitantly as if Steve would jump around the corner any time and scold him.

“I have my connections.” You said mysteriously. “Did Nat give it you?” Wanda joined you. “Wanda! Do NOT reveal my connections.” Wanda chuckled. “You have to be punished now. Cause ‘Murica.” You mimicked Steve’s voice and sent the twins laughing. You snaked your free arm around Wanda’s waist, bringing her closer and started leaving light pecks all over her face, tickling her.

“Get a room.” Pietro showed you his tongue.

“We shall. Later.” You said as you explained your plan to the twins.

Finally, you were all gathered together on the big lawn. Wanda, Pietro and you had managed to assemble many of your friends for an old good game with the ‘frisbee’.

Peter had immediately agreed and surprisingly so did T’Challa. It was good for him to relax and have a good time since he was always running around with his tasks as a king. This week you had a visitor from a school of gifted people, who were people who had been born with powers also know as mutants.

You and the twins had instantly befriended Kurt and so did he. He agreed to play and brought Erik in the game, too.

“Ok, let’s pass it around and whoever drops it, they lose. Until we get down to one player. They shall be the winner.” You announced. Everyone nodded and you knew that this would be a difficult game. Pietro was super fast. Wanda had telekinesis. Kurt teleported. Erik controlled metal. Peter and T’Challa were fast and could climb fast. And of course you could manipulate time.

You were ready to begin when Steve’s voice snapped you from your focus. “Is that my shield?” he said.

“Change of plans!! Protect the shield from Cap.” You shouted and Steve knew that this was going to take a long. The look of despair that formed in Steve’s eyes made you laugh.

Cap stormed to you but you stopped time, pressed a kiss on Wanda’s cheek and handed her the shield.

Time began again and Steve, stunned, looked around for his shield. Wanda whistled him and he started running towards Pietro, as he guessed that Wanda would throw the shield to him, but she threw it in the air as T’Challa caught it.

Steve sighed and ran towards the king but the shield was already in Piet’s hands. He ran around Steve and after he had got him a bit dizzy he passed the shield to Peter.

“Come on, Peter. As a Brooklyn boy to a Queens boy.” Steve tried to work his charm, but Peter being the teaser he was, he extended the shield towards Steve as he sighed in relief, but just then Peter winked and Kurt teleported in front of Steve grabbing the shield and teleporting away again.

Steve facepalmed and ran towards the boy. Kurt hung from a tree with his tail and threw the shield to Erik. Steve almost caught it but the Erik lifted the shield too high for anyone to reach.

Time stopped again as Erik motioned the shield towards you and you caught the shield with ease.

You unfroze time and Steve fell in the grass, giving up any hopes of getting his shield back. You looked at the others and nodded, as you all run towards Cap, embracing him in one big hug.
