so here have a lot of brightness and yellow

anonymous asked:

Stumbled across your art recently, and I totally admire your work! As a complete noob to the digital art scene, I'd just like to ask whether you have any tips on colour picking (like for skin tones, under varied/dramatic lighting and such!). I have a ton of other things I want to ask, but I'll limit myself to one question and then try to google the rest, haha/ Thanks for sharing your art with us! ^^

ahh thank you so much! ♥ welcome to the digial art scene friend, i hope you enjoy your stay and ctrl + z

now onto your question! (if you don’t know what layer and layer modes are and how they generally work you should probably google that before you continue reading)

we all perceive colour differently (thx science) and i trust my intuition a lot when it comes to colour picking because of that, and also because i feel like you can make pretty much every colour combination work within the right context. context is key! but still, remember that all of this is about how i perceive colour, so you might not agree with everything i say.

here’s a quick rundown of terms you’ll see around a lot in reference to colours and shading: the hue, which is the ‘colour’ itself, the saturation aka the intensity, and the brightness [or value] which describes how dark or bright we perceive a colour to be.

rule of thumb: when you shade don’t just add black (or white) to your base colours, that will make your drawings boring and lifeless. use different hues and saturation!

now first things first: which skin colour does the character have?

you’ll mostly be navigating in the red to yellow spectrum for the skin tone. so when i pick the base colours i usually start with the skin and adjust the rest of the colours accordingly. if you’re not sure where to begin it might help if you first determine the values (brightness) of the base colours in grayscale.

and here are a few colour variations—i stuck to the approximate values but played around with a lot of different hues and levels of saturation.

now compare 3 and 5: you’ll notice that 3 is very bright and leans towards orange hues, whereas 5 has a pinkish tint.

on the left i gave 5 the hair colour of 3 and in my opinion the pink hue of the skin doesn’t go well with the orange undertone of the hair. you’ll have to experiment a lot to find out which combinations work for you.  

ctrl + u is your biggest friend (or image >> adjustments >> hue/saturation in photoshop, the shortcut works in sai and clip studio paint too). play with the sliders and see what happens. i do that a lot myself, because it’s easier to coordinate the colours like that afterwards instead of trying to manually pick perfectly matching ones right away.

for further adjustments i like to use an extra semi-transparent layer on top of everything with just a single colour to add atmospheric light. this unifies the colours and makes them more harmonious, if that’s what you’re looking for. this is about as far as i’d go if i didn’t want to shade the drawing.

if i do want to shade, especially with high contrasts and dramatic light, i darken the base by just adding an additional black layer, here set to 40% opacity. of course you could add a colour layer like the ones i mentioned previously too.

to create an impression of dramatic light you need a high contrast between light and dark areas (1). if i want additional visual intrest i often add secondary light which falls onto the main shadow areas. here i picked a faint greenish blue to balance out the yellow (2). and since light is at least partially reflected when it hits a surface you should add a faint glow that goes across the shadow/light border. i uses a mid-brown with a very soft brush on a layer set to overlay here (3).

for this shading style i like to use the layer mode colour dodge with lowered opacity + fill settings. for some layer modes opacity and fill do the exact same thing (e.g. for multiply or screen). however for colour dodge there’s a big difference:

a lowered opacity merely alters the transparency of the entire layer. that looks pretty awful sometimes, because the bright orange affects the dark of the hair much more intensely than the already brighter skin. but when you lower the fill percentage you primarily lower the amount of light that falls onto darker colours. so the layer’s opacity setting treats every colour equally whereas the fill setting takes their values into consideration. it might be hard to understand if you don’t try it out yourself, so just play around to get a feel for how it works!

and to summarise, here’s a process gif:

colour is an extremely big topic and i’ve only barely scratched the surface but i hope that still helped you out a little! the fastest way to learn is always to try things yourself, so grab a sketch and experiment. 👍

Warnings: None, unless crappy is a warning

Hey this is Scott please leave a message after the tone.


I sighed in annoyance as Scott, my boyfriend of two years, ignored another one of my calls. Tired of being ignored, I put on my converses and started walking to his house. I know he’s going to chew my head off for walking alone in the middle of the night, but I’ll worry about it later. I opened the door to his house quietly, just in case he’s asleep and I was overreacting.

anonymous asked:

Ok maybe this sounds strange, but if they were in a modern!au which lords do you think would prefer riding a motorbike? And the ones driving a car? How would they be while doing that?

Weeeeee, hello. Anon! Apologies for taking so long to reply to this ask. I am not much of a modern!AU person or automotive person but I am one for details and settings, so here we go. I’m expanding a bit on what kind of vehicle the Lords would have in our modern times!

Originally posted by foorubbish

Nobunaga: cars. Sports cars – Italian and ostentatious. Think of a red hot Ferrari or a bright yellow Lamborghini.  The Lord of Fools likes his extravagant cars and likes flaunting them. Except when he’s trying to get away from Mitsuhide go incognito, for which he’ll have Hideyoshi give him a ride in his Vespa.

Mitsuhide: cars. Something sleek and expensive but understated in its elegance. Probably a vintage too, which he will keep in excellent condition, like black vintage BMW, which costs A LOT and those who knows the value are the people in the inner circle.

Yukimura: motorbike. Japanese ones that’s built for speed and thrill, like the Hayabusa. It will be decked in all manners of modifications, and is it LOUD just like him. But he realises that this has been the source of complaints in the neighbourhood so he also owns one that’s quieter.

Saizo: neither. Vehicles are liabilities for him, you see. He prefers taking public transports. Or renting, both cars and bikes (and boats and helicopters) – they’re never the same, or have Yukimura give him a ride on his motorbike. It’s an occupational hazard as an international man of mystery, you see. He needs something he can use and ditch at a moment’s notice.

Masamune: motorbike, thanks to Kojuro and Shigezane. But when he got into an accident while riding with Kojuro, he was forbidden from riding ever again. And he conceded because it will give Kojuro a heart attack (but he sneaks out to ride with Shigezane when he could). Kojuro picked (and bulletproofed) his car, he couldn’t care less.

Kojuro: cars. Something expensive and sleek, but also functional. Think of an Audi. He mostly drives Masamune, so he bulletproofed them and considers equipping them with eject seats. But he owns an F1-worthy motorbike which he would say the remnant of his ‘youthful indiscretion’, yet, seduce coax him just right and he might just take you for a ride.  

Hideyoshi: both. When he wants to be alone (or when Nobu hijacks his ride for a whirlwind trip, because he does that all the time), he’ll go with his red Vespa (imagine Hide in red Vespa, CUTE, RIGHT???). When he has his whole entourage (Mitsunari, Hanbei, Sakon, Kanbei, and the latest hot additions Kiyomasa and Masanori), he’ll drive them around in his VW combi.

Inuchiyo: a monster truck. Lol, hahahha, huge American Muscle cars – some vintage, some new (he’s sentimental about old cars) which he’ll pimp the hell out with various results (some look like Pimp My Ride, some like Mad Max rejects). Also, party bus, decked by Keiji. They’re not always in good taste but you can feel the labour of love, and they’re always fun to ride around in.  

Ieyasu: cars. A bulletproof, sleek SUV with darkened window, GPS tracker and the whole shebang – it’s so secure it’s basically a tank. And he will not be driving it himself (that’s what Tadatsugu and Toramatsu, or an AI are for). They are insured to the tee. Also, good for kidnapping people.

Mitsunari: bikes, motorless ones. Or public transports. Why? “Can’t you see that the planet’s dying of pollution because of your cars, you stupid Manju Girl?” He’ll consider a Tesla, if and only if, they have perfected the technology.

Shingen: motorbike, of course. The Tiger of Kai likes having a, ahem, beast between his legs, motorbikes included. He’ll own the bad-ass-est bikes out there and he’ll ride at the forefront of his own gang like they own the street (he probably does). But he also owns a convertible car with a comfy backseat, in case you want to ride him with him. 

Kenshin: both. Oh gosh, he can’t choose. He collects them, both motorbikes and cars, vintage ones, both rarities and otherwise, and they’re all his favourites. But here’s a twist, he can’t drive, he can’t even ride a bike, but he likes collecting them, these marvels! And besides, he has you to drive him around in his antiques ;) He’ll absolutely own a WWII sidecar motorbike, Rolls Royce Silver Ghost and Mr Bean’s tiny green Morris he could barely fit into, but he also keeps around that rusted carcass of a VW beetle that belonged to his granddad.

This is fun! Thanks for this.

Mark Rothko, Saffron, 1957, Oil on canvas, © VBK Wien, 2007, Albertina, Vienna, permanent loan of Batliner Collection

This is a very interesting new scan of Saffron. It’s certainly more resolved than our previous scan here. Followers of this blog know I like to replace posts with the best, most accurate scan i can so the posts evolve with the most realism. However, in this case I am not quite ready to replaces the old scan and say this is more accurate. I realize the old scan is pushed a lot on the contrast end and certainly there’s more brush detail here. However, this scan may be on the red/orange side and the old one may be closer to the actual color. We’ve seen this painting bright yellow to dark red. Am I being overly cautious not replacing something I know is better resolution? Perhaps, but the ability to have both for a while may also be of value. I’m going to leave them both up for now and be happy for this high quality new version and hope someone in Vienna can tell us what we’re missing.

Can’t Lose You // Isaac Lahey Imagine

RequestCan I have an imagine where you and Isaac are having an argument bc you almost got hurt trying to help the pack so while he’s talking he starts using your insecurities against you and saying things he doesn’t mean and you storm out crying so he so he finds you and apologizes and can it also have a lot of fluff in the end, and sorry I had to make to parts for this but thank you in advance :)

Sorry this took so long!! I really hope that this lives up to your expectations :)

Warnings: None
Word Count: 1,191

“You could have been killed!” Isaac shouted at you. His fists were tightly clenched into fists and the bright yellow of his eyes were shinning back at you like two tiny moons. 

“But I wasn’t! I’m fine, Isaac. Look at me, I am here and I am breathing!” You shouted back. The pack had finally had a lead on a very vicious monster that was creeping through the shadows of Beacon Hills. Despite Isaac’s warnings and pleads for you to not come with them, you tagged along anyway. You didn’t have any special powers or super strength that would be useful to the pack but you hated staying back, knowing that all of your friends were risking their lives and you were just laying in bed, worrying. During their fight, Isaac ended up one on one with the creature, the creature viciously tearing it’s teeth into Isaac’s skin. You were scared and jumped in, in attempt to save Isaac which worked and you thought he would be grateful to your sudden braveness but that wasn’t the case. 

“That’s not the point, Y/N! I had the situation handled, you didn’t have to jump in to try and save me. That was such a stupid thing to do, what were you thinking?!” Isaac retorted, his words icy and strict. 

“I was thinking about you! What was I supposed to do? Sit back and watch you get hurt or even worse, get killed?” You crossed your arms over your chest in irritation. 

“That’s exactly what you are supposed to do!” Isaac shouted. He stepped closer to you, his eyes still shining bright and his fists still clenched. You shrunk under his intense gaze. You imagined that it you looked like you were a dog that was just scolded by chewing up your owner’s favorite shoe. “You are a weak and fragile human, Y/N! You are no match to anything in the supernatural world and when you try to intervene, you just cause more harm than good.” 

You cringed at Isaac’s words. Being useless was one of your many insecurities and Isaac knew that. You hated the fact that you were so weak. You hated the fact that there was nothing strong and athletic about you. “You know that I just want to help as much as I can.” Your voice was much softer than the previous moments before. 

“Well, stop. I don’t need you. I don’t need you to help me.” Ouch. Each word that fell from Isaac’s mouth was like a shard of glass piercing your heart. He knew that you were always insecure about meaning nothing to him. You were always scared of needing him more than he needed you or of loving him more than he loved you. Once again, your thoughts were proven to be true. 

The tears welled up in your eyes and you swore to yourself that you wouldn’t cry. No, not in front of him. Your ran your fingers through your hair as a sign of frustration, swallowing back the tears as much as you could. “Fine, Isaac. I’ll just stay out of your way and while I’m at it, I’ll stay out of your life too.” You saw his eyes instantly fall back into their beautiful blue color but you looked away. Instead, you ran right past him and out the door, ignoring his fleeting calls after you. 

It was raining but you didn’t care. You just kept running, the tears mixing with the raindrops that were cascading down your face. Isaac’s words kept replaying in your head like a broken record. As you were running, you tripped on slight rise in the concrete that you didn’t see. You tumbled to the ground and instead of forcing yourself up, you sat there. You wrapped your arms around your legs and just cried, the rain pelting down on you. In a flash, you were wrapped in someone’s warm embrace and by the smell that engulfed you as soon as you were buried in this person’s chest, you knew it was Isaac. 

He lifted you off the ground and despite your anger towards him, you clung to him as he carried you back to your house. It wasn’t a far walk so you must have not ran as far as you thought you did. As soon as you were safe in your own house, Isaac wrapped you tightly in a few blankets and held you close to his chest. “I am so sorry.” He said softly, kissing the top of your head. 

You sniffled, your chest still heaving up and down from running and crying. “The things you said…they really hurt me. You know my insecurities and you used them against me.” 

Isaac’s fingers danced across your arm, giving your goosebumps, goosebumps. “I know and I didn’t mean a single thing that I said. I just got so scared. Y/N, the thought of losing you scares the shit out of me and seeing you in danger, I couldn’t handle it.” 

You nodded slowly. “I was just trying to help. I don’t want to lose you either, you know.” 

Isaac sighed. “I know and I appreciate you trying to help me, I do. But I can’t be there to protect you when you do things like you did tonight. I would never be able to forgive myself if something ever happened to you and I could have prevented it.” 

You sat up and wiggled your way out of Isaac’s grip. “That’s the thing, Isaac, I don’t always want to be the one who needs protection. I feel so useless to you and to everyone else in the pack. When I saw you were in danger, I wanted to help mostly because I was scared but mostly because I wanted to be worth something.” 

“Y/N, you are anything but useless. You’re the person who keeps me sane. You’re my anchor. Who do you think is the one I think about when someone is pushing my buttons and I have to keep calm? Who do you think keeps me from changing on a full moon? Who do you think is the reason I haven’t given up yet? It’s you. Without you, who knows how many people I would have killed or who knows if I would even be alive right now.” Isaac lectured to you, his eyes never once leaving your own. “And I know everyone else loves you and needs you just as much. I can guarantee that.” 

“I’m sorry.” You chocked out. 

Isaac shook his head. “I’m the only one who is allowed to and needs to say sorry in this situation. I love you, Y/N. So much. Please don’t ever forget that.” 

You placed your hand on his cheek, running your finger along this cheekbone. You leaned forward and captured his lips in soft yet passionate kiss. Isaac’s hands trailed down to your waist, pulling you closer to him. After a few seconds you pulled away, completely breathless. “I love you, Isaac.” 

Gaaahhhh, I hope you like this! I’m not really sure how I feel about it but hopefully you like it!. 

I feel like that post needed a visual: aka “ugh my character drawn on a separate layer doesn’t look like they’re part of their environment save me” 

Option 1: “the light source is wrong” 
I’m so sorry bb in this case–pick whichever one of the two (background or character) is easiest to redraw and have at it. Or fudge with a secondary light source and say to hell with logic. If it fails, lick your wounds and move on. You got a cool scar from the fight and will impress people with your careful planning next time. 

Option 2: “The colors or values are off” 
Crack out that cheater software honey we’re gonna fix this.

do you know know where i can find fashion reference in creating a devil i need some reference

“Devil” is a very broad category, so you could pull from a lot of different sources! Here are some possible jumping off points:

  • Decide how stereotypically “devil-ish” you want your character to be. You could have a guy with bright red skin, goat legs, horns, and a pitchfork, or you could go in a completely different direction. For example, in Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, there’s a demon named Crowley who just wears a suit and looks totally human except for when he takes off his sunglasses and has slitted yellow eyes.
  • Research historical beliefs in demonology. Try the Dictionnaire Infernal if you don’t know where to start!
  • You can also look into medieval bestiaries. They’re not strictly demonic, but a lot of the creatures in them are mythological or are real creatures that were believed to have mystical abilities/properties. This site has a nice list of such creatures.
  • Check out the nonhuman tag on this blog if you’ve decided you want to go in a more demonic-looking direction
