questions please

anonymous asked:

do you have any advice or tips for drawing side profiles? I have been trying for ages but nothing seems to ever turn out right.. (love your art by the way!!!)

Thanks so much! Let’s see if I can help at all. If you’re having trouble, I’d suggest starting with guidelines. I think most tutorials will say the same thing: it can be a lot easier to place features if you break up the head/face into parts. In a profile view, the front of the face is divided into thirds while the side of the head, from front to back, is bisected by the ear.

But don’t forget that guidelines are just that–guides! They’re meant to help with general placement, so you should definitely play around with proportions to get the features you want. This will also help you avoid drawing the same face over and over again on different characters, so try different shapes/sizes! Once you get comfortable with proportions, you can eyeball everything to make sure it’s all in place instead of actually drawing lines (this is what I do).

When I draw profiles, what I focus on is reproducing a character’s most prominent features. Think of their face at different angles…what stands out the most in each of these views? I’ll use two of my characters with pretty different features to show what I mean.

These are just the features I focus on when I draw. Pick the few that you think make the character most recognizable and go with those. And remember, you can make your profiles as stylized or as realistic as you’d like. My way of drawing leans more towards stylized, but the goal is to find something that fits your style and works for you. So keep messing around until you do, keep looking up reference (seriously, look up reference…it’s incredibly useful for subtle differences in angle, expression, etc.) and keep drawing. Have fun with it! Faces are difficult, but I promise with time and different techniques it’ll all click for you.

I hope this was helpful, and please let me know if you have any more questions!

Do you have any advice on ways on how to and not to write lucio?

Sure! I’ll try and like… give it my best shot. I’m not Portuguese so I can’t really help in that department but I can like give some general advice.

Basically, the first thing is his appearance. He doesn’t have braids or anything like that, he has dreads. If he had braids the texture would look a lot different. 

Secondly, you wanna steer clear of calling him ‘boy’ or having people refer to him that way? I can’t speak for anyone but it really makes me uncomfortable when people refer to black males that way for obvious reason. It’s just not cool, my dudes. Don’t use kid, either. And that’s just an obvious thing. He’s not a kid. He’s an adult! 

Another thing is… like skin color. Like how to refer to the color of Lúcio’s skin. Now, I think people have different opinions on this, but generally, you don’t wanna use words like chocolate or caramel to describe the color. For one thing, that reminds me of candy, and his skin isn’t candy! Second, it kinda ruins the immersion for me. I kinda just sit back and go, ‘you coulda just said brown skin, but whatever’

Some people don’t even like when you say brown skin, but I don’t really mind that one. Cuz his skin is brown, lol. I also think people kinda need to cool it with describing the color of the skin, like you don’t have to do it every paragraph. And especially with fanfics where we already know what the characters look like. Instead, put that toward describing scars or marks or other defining features! Like Lúcio’s tattoo!

It’s cool to use Portuguese in writing. I mean, if you know someone who’s fluent in it, ask them for help! Or just ask for advice. I know Lúcio doesn’t have any Portuguese voice lines, and that’s really Blizzard’s fault, but he is fluent in it… so… If you use google translate, just prepare to get corrected, is all I’m saying. You could, y’know, do something like this. 

You’re so amazing,” Lúcio whispered, Portuguese flowing easily off his tongue.

So I kinda avoided going to google translate there and just… made it clear he was speaking Portuguese, but I don’t want to mistranslate or be disrespectful by relying on google translate alone.

I saw a post… saying they weren’t sure to use AAVE or not? I find that I don’t, really, even if Lúcio does use it in some of his lines. It’s not like… He doesn’t use it that much, though?? So if you’re not comfortable doing it, then don’t. I really think that if you want to include it, do so sparingly. 

I really think… if you find yourself having trouble with Lúcio, just practice! Look at how you write other characters and see what’s wrong, see what’s missing. Honestly, Lúcio is the easiest for me to write. It’s fucking Junkrat with all his… Australian slang and abbreviations that drive me up the wall.

I think the best advice I can give is do your research, practice, and if you mess up, that’s okay! Learning from your mistakes is a part of life and what will ultimately make you a better person <3

can we talk about how professional stellar are? 

during their recent performance, the back track suddenly skipped repeatedly and the girls froze in their spots while hyoeun repeatedly sang the same line. the girls hold their position for as long as possible, however, their arms understandably got tired so the girls stopped, only to recover quickly and finish the performance without any bg music whatsoever!

Mystic Messenger Heart Blog Cursors~!


Hey guys! I decided to make a MysMe heart cursor for my blog, but then I was like “hey! why not make them for each character and share with the tumblr world!” so yeah!!

Cursors:

For Jumin’s cursor code click here

For Jaehee’s cursor code click here

For Seven’s cursor code click here

For Zen’s cursor code click here

For Yoosung’s cursor code click here

(I didn’t make a V heart or a white heart, but if you want one let me know!)

I have never made a cursor before, so if there is a problem with them, sorry ;-;

~ please don’t claim them as your own~

To use:

Put the code under “  <style type=”text/css”> “ in your blog’s HTML.

When I tried to add it with my theme, it kind of messed it up, so if that doesn’t work for your blog either, go to your blog customization page>scroll down to and click on “advanced options”>and paste the code under “add advanced CSS”!

UPDATE:

Some people requested an Unkown and a V cursor so here they are!

(should I also do a mint one for mint eye? or a elizabeth 3rd one? idk but anyways here ya go)

For V’s cursor code click here

For Unknown’s cursor code click here
