This is obvious, but the last ep has an incredibly graphic (visually and auditorily) scene. You are NOT obligated to watch/listen to it. If you won’t be able to get the image out of your head or it might trigger you or make you nauseous, take care of yourself first. It’s okay. There’s tons of warning time; you’ll know it’s coming. Close your eyes and/or put your tv on mute. It’s okay. It’s something that’s very difficult to unsee and if you don’t want to live with the image, you do not have to. It doesn’t make you a bad person or a weak person.
The people who created this show worked hard to educate us on the subject of mental health. You wouldn’t be letting anyone down by taking care of yours first.
Could you give me some coloring and shading tips? I've started making tablet art recently and as far as coloring goes I am terrible at it. Others art pops and have really nice coloring and shading etc, and mine is so flat and bland. I want to fix that, so any tips? (if I could possibly have tips on making line art also that would be great)
Okay so, I havent drawn anything other then my final film for like weeks so I needed something else to draw so thank you, so here’ the process I went through to color this pic of me below lol (Please keep in mind that I work with Paint Tool SAI! but in general it might help with basics!)
Das me v v v
Then after all this, I fiddle around with Multiply and screen layers over EVERYTHING. Different colors have different mood effects so experiment! I also sometimes add in some lightly blended luminosity highlights with the water tool to make some dramatic lighting tm. Then I do a few tweaks and add in an overlay layer over everything and fiddle with the filter to get what I want and bam! That’s how I color lol
See how different colors can set different moods? warm colors for warm moods and cold colors for cold ones. Looking up color pallets is AMAZING and SUPER HELPFUL!! A lot of people know about complementary colors but the contrast can be quite harsh to the eyes sometimes. I like to use
Analogous colors myself a lot (near the same side of the color wheel) And I LOVE neon colors like a lot, but to REALLY make em pop is to put some muted colors around it. Having NEON against NEON can seem harsh to the eyes and look off.
But yeah, That’s my basic process on how I color all my pieces! I hope this helped some :)
EDIT: Also!! for lineart, I just have my stabilizer set up hella high lol
never have i watched a more beautifully crafted show, with amazing plot and individual characters who are impossible not to love.
netflix are cancelling it and i could not bear to not have this show in my life (esp after the season 2 cliffhanger)
please please please please if you have netflix watch it (idc if u just put it on mute, just put it on please)
it has such a diverse cast (ethnically, nationally, sexually) and it was created by the wachowskis (two trans women) who love this show so so much.. i haven’t seen such good representation anywhere (½ of the main 8 are poc, 1 is a trans women (and the actress is acc trans herself!!) 2 are bi/gay and the show shows 2 really healthy lgbt relationships!!!)
the plot is????? amazing?? it is so original and they develop it so well But also the characters drive it… all of them are original and individual and you know them as well as you know your friends
also the editing is 10/10 and the locations are 10/10 and you have to watch it to understand…. the editing is Amazing
please, save an amazing show from being cancelled and share this and watch it!
Summary: Requested by anon: “Gorgeous human, could you write a storyline where Grayson (please with G) and his girlfriend have an argument, not an angry one but a teary filled one and Grayson approaches her as she’s crying and there’s heavy SMUT involved as they make up, it’s not aggressive but very passionate and intense? I just heard the song ‘Too Deep’ by Ritual and Delilah and its got me feeling all kind of things and just need to read something you write based on this song, maybe along the lines of my suggestion? xx” Word Count: 4,008 (longest imagine I’ve written omg) Warnings: Cunnilingus, daddy kink. A/N: So, this is the work that I had gotten halfway through when tumblr crashed. I had to rewrite it so it didn’t come out as good as I expected it to. But I hope I did this justice and I hope you like it. Also, I’m still not very good at smut but I’m gonna practice and get better hopefully. Listen to Too Deep for the full effect!
“Are you sure you’re gonna be okay?” Your friend’s voice sounded through the phone and you stopped yourself from scowling.
How were you supposed to answer that after the large bomb she had dropped on you?
“Yeah.” You answered, voice coming out breathy and quiet. You knew that you weren’t gonna be okay, though, and judging by the small indignant noise that your friend let out on the other end of the receiver, she didn’t buy it either.
“Look, maybe it isn’t what it looks like,” Your friend brought you back from your dark thoughts. “Just don’t do anything stupid.”
Summary: A snapshot
into the life of Jung Hoseok and his cat hybrid (aka Y/N)
A/N: Always wanted
to write a Hybrid!au…so, here it is! Also, I got the title from the song by
“You smell weird.”
Hoseok stopped and turned towards you, blinking in surprise.
About an hour ago, you were sitting right next to him with
your head on his lap, eating the strawberries he put in a bowl for you. You
were quiet while watching TV as Hoseok shuffled with papers he had to get
through for his job’s upcoming project. The television was put on mute, so you
were just watching the characters on screen walk around and talk without any
words coming out of their mouths (Hoseok said he could finish his work in the
bedroom so he wouldn’t bother your TV time (he knows you enjoy a certain drama
that comes on at 8) but you decided spending time with him was better than some
drama you could watch again—but you wouldn’t tell him that). You would
occasionally rub your cheek against his leg and he would let his finger run
through your hair, stopping every now and then to put a paper to the side or
rub his knuckles behind your ears.
Everything was quiet. You were quiet the entire time—letting
out a purr every now and then when he scratched that particular spot behind your ears—and it was nice. He enjoyed
the domestic feeling that resonated throughout the apartment, bringing forth a
warm sensation that filled is stomach, making it completely full. Almost like
he had eaten a century’s worth of food.
It felt nice. Being with you was nice, and he wanted to stay
like this forever.
That is until you slowly removed yourself from his lap. He
didn’t pay much mind to it at first, simply allowing you to move so you could
go to the bathroom or get a drink or do whatever it was you needed to do, as
long as you came back into his lap quickly. But, you didn’t walk to the kitchen
or bathroom. He could still feel your presence beside him, staring at him.
Well, it felt more like glaring.
Than you spoke. And it wasn’t sweet like your strawberry
stained fingers. It wasn’t sugar coated. It was blunt and straight to the
point, just like most things you said (but he liked that about you). You just
straight out and said what was on your mind, even if it might’ve been kind of
harsh. You didn’t come right out and say it, but Hoseok knew what you meant.
Hoseok, you stink.
He put his papers down and used his finger to adjust the
glasses that rested on the bridge of his nose before he spoke.
“I…I do?” he stuttered out, sounding confused and a
little offended. You usually enjoyed his scent. Well, at least he thought you
Once his glasses were in place, he could see the way your
eyes bore into his, glaring at him. You sat on your knees with your hands
clinched on your lap, and your tail swayed side to side vigorously.
Were you angry?
You were wearing his oversized white t-shirt (the one that
fell off your shoulder, exposing your smooth skin), and it kind of distracted
him from the situation at the moment. Hoseok loved your skin. It was similar to
silk with how much he wanted to constantly touch it; to feel how soft it is.
You weren’t wearing any pants either. Probably just shorts that were being
covered by the shirt. Or maybe you were only wearing your underwear underneath.
Or…or maybe you weren’t wearing anything underneath. Nothing at all. Just
the thought made a chill run down his spine.
He felt the need to touch you now, but he remembered the
sharp gaze you had on him and he thought maybe now wasn’t the best time for
He really wanted to, though.
Hoseok brought his gaze back to your eyes and, indeed, you
were still glaring at him and your tail was still moving around anxiously. You
must’ve been waiting for a better response than the one he just gave you, but
you broke the silence before he could say anything else.
“Yes. You smell weird,” you said as you shifted your eyes to
the side for a second, only to bring them back to Hoseok’s. “You smell kind of.
Hoseok took his glasses off and put them on the coffee table
before leaning his back against the couch, never breaking eye contact with you.
“Well, what do I smell like?”
The question made you snap your head up at him, looking into
his sleepy eyes, and crawl over to him slowly. You brought your face close to
his, your nose touching his, and you stared at him for a while, admiring his
features, before dropping your head down to nose at his neck. You took a deep
breath, and began running your nose down his neck to his shoulder. You inhaled
and then rubbed your cheek against his shoulder until you’ve had enough and
used your nose to trace your way to the dip in the middle of his neck.
You continued to nose at the exposed skin around his neck
and shoulder, pulling down the strap to his white beater to expose more of him.
Hoseok softly smiled and wrapped his arms around your waist to hoist you onto
his lap. Once you were straddling him, still smelling and scenting him, Hoseok
ran his hands up and down your bare thighs, sighing at the warmth of your skin.
He moved his right hand up to your hips, moving the fabric of the shirt with
him to feel more of you. He kept moving his hand up until his palm was on your
back, his thumb gently rubbing circles into the skin.
He closed his eyes, and enjoyed the moment while it lasted. (You
were wearing the baby blue underwear that had small pink hearts everywhere).
Eventually, you removed your face from his neck with your
nose scrunched up. “You smell fruity. Like some perfume,” you said with a
little sniff. “really strong perfume.”
Hoseok opened his eyes and looked at you. “Really?”
You nodded. God, he’s
“That’s strange. You know I don’t where any cologne usually
or body spray.” He knew you liked his natural scent more than of those
artificial flavors people envelope their body in.
But he wasn’t prepared for what you said to him next.
“Were you with a woman?”
Hoseok’s head snapped up, his eyes looking directly into
yours. You were expressionless. Not upset, not sad, not anything. Your face was
completely blank. If he had to name one thing he didn’t personally care for
about you (which was difficult because he literally loved everything about you), it would have to be this face that he could
never read or decipher. It made understanding you quite difficult; especially
when he first brought you home.
“A woman?” he questioned with a frown. “Y/N, you know I work
with other women at my job. Maybe one of them brushed up against me while they
were walking by or something like that.”
That was a lie. He was with a woman at work. Well, not in that type of context. While assisting an
associate with a bug on her computer, she was leaning pretty close against him,
having her chest a little too close to his shoulders. Once he was able to fix the
problem, she showed her gratitude by running her hand along his bicep with a
flirtatious smirk. He felt extremely uncomfortable and quickly took his leave
before anything escalated. He didn’t think much of the encounter since he
didn’t feel much from it—just discomfort.
You didn’t have anything to worry about, since he only saw
you, but he felt the need to ease your suspicion, so he wrapped his arms around
you more and place his face in the crook of your neck.
“Besides, I don’t have the time or the urge for anyone else.
It’s only you. It’ll always be you.” Now it was Hoseok’s turn to run his nose
along your neck, letting it run along your jawline, knowing it always made you
There was only you, and there would always only be you. Only you-
“I don’t believe you.”
Hoseok’s entire body froze and the hold on your waist
loosen. He removed his face from your neck only to see your catlike eyes
glaring at him once again before removing yourself from his hold and walking
out of the room.
Hoseok sat on the couch for a moment, dumbfounded by your
comment, until he heard the slam of a door making him jump up and shuffle
towards your bedroom door. As soon as he was in front of your door he gave a
slight knock, requesting your permission to enter.
He knocked a second time.
No one answers.
He gives a third knock and, with another no answer, he knows
you were going to be ignoring him for a while. You only did that when you
weren’t in the mood to argue. Ignoring him meant you weren’t angry, but far
from happy as well. He let out a defeated sigh before reaching for the doorknob
and gripping it. Hoseok could easily walk into your room and make you give him
your attention, but he knew that would just be invading your privacy. You never
locked your door. You didn’t, because you never had a reason to. He respected
you. You were of value. His equal. So, if you wanted time to yourself, he would
grant that to you. You didn’t have to lock the door to get away from him
because he would already know what mood you’re in to know what you want. And,
if that so happens to be away from him, then he would make himself give you
some time until you’re ready.
So, Hoseok releases his grip from your doorknob and slowly
walks away from your bedroom door, settling back on the couch to finish his
work; hoping you would feel generous enough to see him before he has to go to
Sometimes you wished Hoseok would just storm into your room,
and make you listen to him. He had every right to ask for an explanation from
you. And you knew there was no reason for you to be upset. It wasn’t that big
of a deal. He comes home smelling of other people most of the time since he
works at an office with like 15 other people. It was understandable that one of
them (even if it was a woman) might bump against him or get close to him.
It’s just…why did it have to be a woman? Why did it have
to be someone with such a strong smell? Why did she have to get so close that
you could smell her all over his body?
Hoseok was too nice for his own good. He always saw the good
in people and didn’t really like confrontation. That’s why whenever you both
did so happen to get into an argument, he would always give you time to calm
down whenever you stormed out. Afterwards, you would come out of your room and
he would be waiting for you, ready to cuddle with you and run his hands along
your tail. The issue is never really solved and it doesn’t get brought up
again. It’s not the best way to resolve a problem, of course, but it worked for
the both of you.
Well, except this time.
You didn’t feel like going back into the room and ignoring
the issue just so he could pet you and rub his hands along your body. Though
that did sound nice, you wanted to let him know that this isn’t going to be
solved with just a few gentle strokes. Hoseok needed to know that…
Hell. You didn’t even know what you wanted him to know,
honestly. You weren’t particular upset about the way he smelled. You just. .
.just wanted him to-
Shit. What the hell is
wrong with me?
You waited about two hours before deciding it was time to
leave your room. You tip toed to your door and leaned your ear against it,
wondering if Hoseok was still around.
You didn’t hear anything, so you quietly opened the door and
peeked your head out. Looking both ways and seeing that the close was clear,
you quietly walked towards the living room. The television was off and the room
was dark. Good. You weren’t really in the mood to talk to him right now. You
made your way to the kitchen and opened the fridge, seeing if there was
anything to snacks on before going back to your room. You settled some more
fruit—blackberries, blueberries, and more strawberries—grabbing a bowl and pour
them in together. You plucked a blackberry out the bowl and started putting the
containers back in the fridge.
Once you were done, all the food back in its place and about
to grab the bowl to head to your room, you felt two strong arms wrap around
your waist and hoisting you into the air. You let out a weak yelp and tried to
get out of the hold, but stopped once you heard a familiar voice.
“I’ve finally got you.” the voice chuckled against your ear
before placing a light peck behind the lobe. You immediately stopped moving and
allowed yourself to be carried bridal style in Hoseok’s arms as he made his way
to the living room. He sat on the couch, placing the bowl of fruit on the
coffee table and wrapping his warm arms around your waist so you won’t try to
(Even though you didn’t plan on leaving.)
You just sigh in frustration and cross your arms over your
chest, looking anywhere but at him.
“Hey,” Hoseok hums, kissing behind your ear again. “Hey,
come one. Look at me, Y/N. Please?”
You didn’t respond. Just kept your attention on the blank
television screen. Your tail swayed side to side, agitated.
Hoseok sighs. “Y/N, come one,” he buries his face into your
neck. “I…I’m sorry. I took a shower for you. Do I still smell like them?”
At that moment, you felt like complete shit. Hoseok
apologized, and he had no right to. It really, really wasn’t his fault, yet you made him feel as if it was. I really don’t deserve him.
Your ears began to flatten at the thought. Slowly, you
turned your body around to straddle him, and buried your face into his neck.
You took a deep, deep breath of his scent, and, the smell flowed through your
nose. His smell. The smell of citrus
and honey, but also the distinct smell of a man. You know, that musky smell.
You couldn’t get enough of it. It was so addicting. Hoseok, he was so addicting. You could stay cooped up
in his arms forever.
But, as you basked in the scent that is Hoseok, you could
still, very faintly, smell the fruit scent of some woman.
“Do I smell any better?” Hoseok broke the silence making you
snap out of your thoughts. You took another whiff before nodding your head.
That made him sigh in relief, pulling you more into his arms. He could place
his hands on your cheeks and lifted your head to meet his so he can place his
forehead on yours. “Good. Do you love me again?”
That made you frown. Love again? What was he talking about?
You’ll always love him. What kind of question is that? Why would he even think
about you not loving him? That’s ridiculous. It should be a crime to ask such a
question like that. Your ears straightened up and your tail began to move
around again. You pressed the palms of your hands on his cheeks as well and
lightly pressed your lips on his. When you pulled back, you could see the soft
smile and happiness that shone in his eyes.
“I never stopped, Hobi.”
Hoseok let out another sigh before burying his face in your
neck, tightening his arms around your waist again. “That’s good. I’m glad,” he
peppered light kisses along your neck and jawline. “So, glad.”
You began running your hands through his hair, burying your
nose in the strands. He washed it, and it smelled like the rose shampoo you
really liked. Your stopped moving your tail and laid it over his knee. You both
stayed like that for a little while, simply basking in each other’s scent.
Hoseok would continue to nudge your neck with his nose and leave random pecks
throughout the skin, while you buried your nose further into his hair and
occasionally rubbing your cheek and forehead against him. There was no sounds
this time. No papers rustling around; just the sound of you and Hoseok
breathing and the deep breaths you both took. It was perfect. He was perfect. You
both were perfect together.
You both finally broke apart once Hoseok yawned against your
(his) t-shirt, causing you to move back to look at him. His eyes were drooping
and he looked exhausted, yet he still managed to keep that lovely smile on his
face just for you.
“You should go to bed, Hobi.” You said as you began removing
yourself from his lap, but Hoseok gripped your waist to make you stay in place.
“No, not yet. Stay with me,” he leaned his back against the
couch, keeping eye contact with you. “Right here.” He gently lifts you and lays
you across his lap, grabbing the bowl of fruit afterwards. He picks up a
blackberry and holds it up against your mouth. You let the blackberry hit your
lips a bit before opening your mouth and eating the fruit from Hoseok’s hand.
He smiles and continues to place more fruit in front of your mouth for you to
“Hobi, you have to go to sleep. You have work in the morning
and I don’t want you to be late or tired when you get up.” You say even though
you’re still eating the fruit he holds in front of you.
“It’s fine. I want to spend more time with you before I go
to sleep.” He response and licks some of the juice on his thumb before grabbing
a strawberry from the bowl.
You pout. “But you’ll be tired in the morning.”
Hoseok chuckles. “But I want to be with you a little more.”
You feel your heart speed up and your tail start to find its
rhythm again. “But you could be late for work and Namjoon will be mad at you!”
“But I love you.”
And that’s it. Those three words cause you to forget how
speak and simply eat the strawberry from his fingers with your face the color
of the fruit. He won this round, I guess.
But, honestly, he somehow wins every round.
(You both eventually fall asleep on the couch, with you
lying on the couch and Hoseok on top of you, resting his head on your chest and
holding your intertwined fingers against his lips.
Hoseok’s alarm goes off at 7am, but neither of you hear it
since its charging in his bedroom, causing you both to wake up at 8am—thirty
minutes before he has to be at the office. You try to get him to hurry, but he
refuses, saying something about, “I don’t feel good!” and “You have to take
care of me today!”
You try to make him leave, but he gives that really annoying
(annoyingly cute) puppy dog face causing you to give in and let Hoseok call
Namjoon about not being able to make it into work today.
From the other line, you could practically hear Namjoon
rolling his eyes as he tells Hoseok to ‘get better’ before hanging up the

You’ve heard of 110% Jack Zimmermann, now get ready for
0% Jack Zimmermann.
There’s a cookout at a neighboring
frat house, and the hockey team plus Farmer go to hang out and drink beer. They
start playing an impromptu game of volleyball in the yard, and Jack’s on
Now, Chowder is steeling himself
for strategy, Jack’s murder face, and a lot of competitive bullshit.
What he gets is Jack chirping
Holster, who isn’t even in the yard. The ball goes flying right past Jack’s
face and this total meatball just watches it bounce out of bounds.
“Ha ha, look at it go.”
Chowder kicks Jack off his team
because they are losing so bad, it’s actually pretty embarrassing. And Jack’s
like, “What? Of course I can play with a Sprite in my hand.”
Jack studying for a class that he
has zero interest in. His studying for economics looks an awful lot like
“Jack, why is there a popsicle
stick Eiffel Tower on the kitchen table? Wait, where did these popsicle sticks
even come from?”
Jack actually gives negative fucks
when it comes to cooking just for himself. His meals don’t even make sense half
of the time. Bitty caught him eating a bowl of mac and cheese, tater tots,
green peas and ketchup once. He still has nightmares.
There’s another cookout on Frat
row that the hockey team crashes (but they bring tub juice so they get to
stay). Someone set up a badminton net in the yard and Jack somehow gets roped
(Not by Chowder, though, because
that’s the kind of lesson you only have to learn once.)
Bitty is playing his little
Southern heart out, running up and down his side of the makeshift court. He
swings at the birdie so hard it actually gets stuck in his racket.
Meanwhile, Jack is seeing if he
can balance his racket on his chin.
And then he tries to see if he can
whack the birdie onto the frat house’s roof. Which turns into several people
cussing him out and Bitty chases him around for a few minutes with the intent
of beating Jack Zimmermann’s ass.
(Jack laughs and laughs and maybe
he lets Bitty catch him and then he grins up at him—there had been a leaping
tackle involved in the take down—and he says “What’re you gonna do with me now,
Bittle?” And Bitty is Not Amused, so he pinches Jack’s nipple hard and then he
goes help the frat bros get the birdie out of the gutter.)
Jack loves history, but only some
history. He gives a lengthy presentation on Colonial North America in one of
his history classes, and at the end the TA raises her hand. “How did Thomas
Jefferson’s contributions shift the course of United States history?”
And he just squints at her and
goes, “Who the fuck is Thomas Jefferson?”
Watching TV with Jack is a gamble.
He’s either on the edge of his seat, eyes trained on the screen, ready to
permanently silence anyone who dares speak/interrupt his show. Or he talks over
the TV, puts it on mute to better hear someone else talk over the TV, and makes
fun of the various American accents on the show.
(Jack’s southern accent is so bad
and he knows it, and he makes it so much worse when Bitty is around to hear it.
It’s all fun and games until a French Canadian on TV has something to say, and
then Jack’s all like “Wtf, Bitty? I thought we were friends!?” Bitty is really
glad he sprung for throw pillows in the Haus, because otherwise he would end up
concussing his captain.)
Jack took one semester of Spanish,
and he remembers a surprising amount of it, considering he went to class a
total of six times and did virtually none of the work. His Spanish is terrible,
but he knows numbers, colors, seasons and “No bueno.” For some time, lots of
things were “no bueno.”
But then Jack stumbled across ASL
via YouTube and he gets super into it. By the end of the week he knows about as
much ASL as he does Spanish. By the end of the month he can sign the most
beautiful profanity and dad jokes. By the end of the school year it’s started
rubbing off on the rest of the team.
(Their butchered ASL is somehow
worse than Jack’s Spanish, and he would be more annoyed if it weren’t
hilarious. For some time Ransom and Holster take to pointing at good things and
then making the sign for “candy.” Sriracha? Candy. Apple pie? Candy. The
mysterious orange cat that wanders along Frat Row? Candy. Chowder’s stuffed
shark? Candy. The latest episode of Breaking Bad? Candy. Pretty soon everyone
starts using the candy sign as a gesture of approval. One Sunday Jack walks
down to the kitchen to find Bitty making those amazing sausage balls, with real
maple syrup and grated sharp cheddar. Jack touches his shoulder so that Bitty’s
looking at him and then he presses a finger to his jaw, candy, and points to Bitty so there’s no misunderstanding. Bitty
blushes clear to the roots of his hair, even when he says, “Y’all are so
This takes us to a new friend. Ransom
and Holster and Jack and Chowder are chilling in the dining hall, and Ransom
and Holster are using their terrible pidgin ASL (half the signs are made up and
the rest don’t matter) which catches the eye of one Amy Willashire, who is HOH
and still pretty new to Samwell.
Amy marches her happy ass up to
the table and starts signing away, a mile a minute, the biggest grin on her
face because sometimes it feels like she’s the only HOH student on campus. That
grin slowly fades as Ransom and Holster stare at her like she’s grown a second
head. (They’re actually panicking, because they understand about one word in
ten and how are they going to tell her that?)
And then Jack perks up and starts
signing back, so Amy is signing to him. He has to tell her twice to slow tf
down, but then she sits with them and by the time the hockey crew have to go to
class she’s chirping Jack for his ASL accent. (Some of his signs come out
backwards, and he’ll swap hands halfway through a thought instead of using his
dominant hand for most of the work. Jack flips her off with a laugh, which is a
sign everyone can get right.)
So Jack and Amy are ASL buddies.
Amy is super stoked that most of the hockey team knows at least some of the
language, which means she can tell them something in a pinch. So the team
learns even more ASL and Amy learns about hockey, and things are golden.
Until Amy invites Jack and Dex to
a pool party. Everyone there is at least one beer in, and they’re playing in
the pool, and someone mentions water chicken. Amy wants to play, so as a matter
of course she clambers onto Jack’s shoulders.
From her vantage point, she can’t
tell what Jack’s saying but she can feel him giggling like a bastard as they
wipe out literally every time, to the point where everyone else is playing pool
chicken and she is trying to splash Jack into next week. He’s splashing back.
It’s a whole thing.
(They find Dex in the basement
with a few of the stoners and a lingering smell of pot. Dex has finally found

Can everyone share this post and go to Instagram and tag Disney & Disney studios in the pics for me please
My Instagram & Twitter is @armani_salado if anyone wants to retweet the tweet I have there about this.
It will mean a lot.
The YouTube link is me singing part of A Whole New World. Muted Aladdins voice and put mine .
This could be the role that defines me and opens the doors for me in my career.
Maybe we can get this trending . #armaniforaladdin
Sign of the times debuted just at #19 in USA Spotify. It's much, much worse than I expected. We need to STREAM, guys!! For Harry! As it stands, he has no chance to debut at #1 like Zayn did.
yes, we definitely need to stream more!! he needs the streaming numbers for the charts - they account for 20-30% of the charting position.the song not being available really cut into the streams, so we have to work extra hard to make up for it!! he’s doing very well with sales right now, but as those taper off, we’ve got to make sure we have the streams to help boost him up because he doesn’t have a music video that will give him an extra boost.
if spotify is NOT working - uninstall & re-install the application on either mobile or desktop, depending on which one you’re using.
just to emphasize how important it is.
for the us: harry got 785k streams. shape of you is the #1 song in america right now, and it gets ~1.3m streams a day. that’s 515k more streams a day, which converts into 3,433 more SALES per day than harry (150 streams = 1 sale). that’s 24,000 more sales a week. the top song on spotify us right now is HUMBLE, getting ~2.2m streams. that’s 1.4m more streams,or 10k a day, or 70k more sales a week.
for the uk:
harry got 276k streams.
the top song on the singles chart right now is shape of you, getting ~530k streams. that’s 253k more streams, or 1.7k a day, or 12k more sales a week. the top song on spotify uk right now is galway girl, getting ~560k streams. that’s 284k more streams, or 1.9k a day, or 13k more sales a week.
streaming can really make such a huge difference!!
to help out:
for the uk charts, streaming is capped per user at 10 streams a day. if you stream 100 times, it will count for the spotify uk chart as 100 streams, but for the uk singles chart where we’re trying to make the difference - it’ll only be 10. to get around this, create multiple accounts and then you can use a us vpn for the remainder of the day.
for the us charts, if you could use a uk vpn and stream the song 10 times that’d be huge. then go back to streaming for the us. if you don’t live in the us, use a vpn to help out!!
do not put the song on mute. just plug in some headphones or leave it super soft.
make sure local files are OFF, or NONE of your streams will count. this is only applicable for the desktop player. (here’s how to turn it off: x)
use the playlist here. just press play, and that’s it!! it’d be such a huge help if you could just leave it on in the background throughout the day.
you can also skip after 30 seconds, and it counts as a stream.
Do you still go on iscribble? I think i've watched every speed paint you have up there and they're so mesmerizing. I love how they go from just blobs of colour and value into these epic compositions. I envy your storytelling and would love to know what would be best in terms of giving art more "umph" or feeling? The comic you did with Orianna and Blitz or the one with Kindred and Soraka, they're FULL of emotion and always make me feel something. Love you art to death :)
Hiya! I pop on iS every now and then, but I don’t use it for sketching anymore.. the new HTML shift kinda changed the feel of its response, and I’m just more comfortable working in Photoshop. Glad you like the replays though, it’s a great feature for sure.
There are multiple things that contribute to storytelling in an illustration/comic: Frame composition, shapes within the frame, camera lens, camera position, lighting, colour, props/background. And then there’s the characters themselves with body language, gesture and expression(acting). Alot of this study is closely tied to cinema!
Pushing for emotional impact often rely on camera placement and framing/shot size to ‘put you in the moment’ or ‘in someone’s shoes’. Colour and value(and every other element/principle of art) helps direct your eye and can enhance the emotions even more.

What I like to first do when working on a scene is to decide what part of the story/moment appeals to me the most, then work toward selling that scene. It’s a highly subjective process and everyone has their personal way of composing from the same idea, the challenge comes in leaving a strongest impression.
The Blitz/Ori comic was really bare- simple render/lighting, no backgrounds, alot of close-ups. But its simplicity helped immerse you in the scene more, since the characters and their emotion(or lack of) are the focus of the story. (but this doesn’t work all the time, context is very important). The frames lead the viewer’s eye, and you have to be conscious of what visual information you’re putting in(or leaving out).
I left the general palette muted and dull to synergize with the mood, and let the colour blue be the contrast colour of the light(life). I’m not always aware of what I’m doing, but the more you understand what you need, the more you can design your work to be successful.
I can’t tell you how to UMPH a piece of art in the best way- there are only multiple variations with different focuses. Build your own visual library of artwork like illustrations or screenshots from film/comics that you find interesting. Learn the conventions that artists use by breaking down an image to its elements. You’ll start seeing patterns everywhere. And if that’s difficult, just look around online for blogs/tutorials/studies where smart people explain the thing for you.
Good luck! Practice alot! And constantly ask friends/people for feedback. They don’t have to offer fullblown critique- they’re just as valuable for telling you that ‘they don’t understand what something is’ or ‘something feels off’ or if their response is opposite of what you hoped to achieve.
