Another little thing I did. This was more just me fucking around at first but oh man, animating in photoshop and compositing files without quality loss takes a loooooong time. Good experience overall though, definitely helps me find quicker ways of getting the same results!
Another piece I did for an assignment last semester which also goes with the pattern I just posted. I’ve been trying to feel more comfortable with photoshop without incorporating traditional media into it. I’m not giving up on painting, but I do want to find a quicker way to meet deadlines and be a little more flexible.
for y’all that have been under a rock the past few days, tumblr just rolled out an instant messenger (like on facebook etc) BUT there’s a catch - you don’t get it until someone who already has it sends you a message (imo rly gross and elitist and stupid but i digress)
i’ve had a bunch of messages asking me to activate people’s messenger and i figured this would be more efficient so reblog this and i’ll message as many as i can, as long as u promise that if there are too many for me to do myself you’ll go through the notes once you’ve got it and help out some more homies :)
Tutorial: When Tumblr won’t let you mention people!
Don’t you hate it when you try to @ a blog and the person you want to mention doesn’t show up? Well there is a way around this tom foolery and I’m here to show you how! I am going to show you two ways, its actually pretty easy and you will probably kick yourself about it.
It’s great how they just hold on this for several seconds. This moment where Rei has basically told Usagi “I have to do this alone because you’ll need to keep fighting when I’m gone.” Where Rei knows she’s going to die, and Usagi also knows Rei is going to die, and they just have this one moment of completely unfiltered truth between them. Rei holding Usagi’s hand and looking at her, not just with sadness and love, though definitely those things. But with TRUST.
That’s what gets me most here. That’s what this moment is. It’s Rei saying “I’m about to give every last thing I have to give because I know that you can do this.”
And Usagi feeling that, truly BELIEVING it for maybe the first time. Usagi trusted Rei just a few episodes ago with the most powerful thing in the entire universe, with literally her heart. Rei doesn’t have a millennium-old super powerful crystalline representation to give in return (not for a couple seasons, anyway), but she DOES have herself. It’s her turn to put her trust right back in Usagi.
I love that the camera holds on this moment. Just this, so we have to take those few extra seconds to exist here, just as Usagi and Rei do, clinging to each other and giving each other everything, because that’s how much they believe.
