In a Heartbeat FAQ

When will the film be released?
Sometime this summer!

Is the film done?

Then why not post it now?
We’re submitting the film to film festivals, and some of them have rules about putting the film online. We just want to make sure we have enough time to run it through the festival circuit, but we are eager to share it with you as soon as we can!!

How much will it cost to watch it?

Where will you upload it?
Vimeo and/or Youtube - but don’t worry, we’ll post about it here, and on our facebook!

Can I share it once it’s online?
Yes! BUT - please do not share by downloading and reuploading the film to your facebook/tumblr/instagram/youtube/etc. That’s stealing. To share it, copy and paste the link (that we will provide!) or use the reblog button on Tumblr or the share button on Facebook! Thank you!

Where can I watch the trailer?

How long is the film?
A whopping 4 minutes and 5 seconds :)

Can you make it longer?
No, this is a student film made by two people - Beth and Esteban were solely responsible for all of the visual aspects of the film, including storyboards, character design, character and set modeling, texturing, rigging, camera layout, animation, set dressing, lighting, rendering, and compositing. That’s a lot of work for two people! Plus, as a thesis film for our college program, there was a required time limit.

Will there be a sequel?
Slow down! We haven’t even released it yet!

Will it have subtitles/will it be dubbed in my language?
There is no dialogue, so there won’t be any need for subtitles or dubbing.

What are the characters’ names?
Sherwin (red hair) and Jonathan (dark hair). And sometimes we call the Heart Shirley :)

How old are they?
Around 13 or 14

Did you change Jonathan’s ethnicity?
Yes! While we were designing the characters, our only consideration was that Jonathan’s eyes be (dreamy) blue. But when we got into production, we made a few adjustments so that Jonathan was mixed Latino. Esteban was born and raised in Mexico, and we wanted to give an extra personal touch to the character.

Can I draw fanart of the characters?
Sure! We’d love to see it if you don’t mind sharing it with us!

Are you still accepting Kickstarter donations?
No, our Kickstarter campaign ended in December. However, if you would like to donate for festival submission fees, we have put a donate button in the sidebar of our tumblr page! There are no rewards attached to these donations, though, so don’t feel obligated!!

Will the Kickstarter rewards still be available to buy?
It’s pretty likely that we’ll open an online store to buy t-shirts and prints, so we’ll let you know if/when that’s available! Thank you for your interest!

Thank you for your support! If you have any other questions, please let us know! <3

An Apology and Brushes

I’m sorry for my absence these last few months. I’ve had some stuff going on, but I am feeling better now. And I come bearing apology gifts for Ani and EFA’s followers. 

Super Versatile Brush:

(know that settings change as I need them to. This is basically the default for my brushes tho. This means all brushes.)

If you’ve ever used tegaki (e) this is a brush I made that is similar to how it works on there. Truthfully, the opacity should be manually changed to be like tegaki e, but this is my default brush. Great for blending with color picker. (basically a plain pencil brush with settings changes.)

Now for my absolute fave. The chunky chalk brush by Mark Winters.

Bonus stuff:

Snow/speckles (works great with the new scatter feature.)


petals (set to scatter)



“The Astral Dragon Nebula”.

I would like to thank you for subscribtion to a Forgotten Galaxy! And sharing across the world all these celestial creations.
We’re all made from a star dust. A part of it greatness. We are creators and masters of thoughts. A noble characters and builders of own destiny.
We hold the key to any situation…

Regards, Vladislav Cadaversky.


I can finally get all these brush settings out of the way so i can STOP getting asked the same quesTION OVER AND OVER :’^)

SO i put them all in one post-

with dumb doodles of me. hot dog!

“WHAT if i don’t have Sidewalk.bltmp?” - You can always use Noise or Fuzystatic to substitute for the brush i use, and Set the texture to Paper.

“Where can i find Brush / Texture Brushes at?” Can always look on Deviantart, they’ve got some there. An old ex friend of mine gave me SAI so idk where she got them, lmao.

Also here’s where i find them coolio brushes!


hope ya’ll like em, now go away.

Current Favorite Tools Available in the Clip Database

I’ve had people ask what tools I use in Clip Studio Paint, which is hard for me to answer because I use a lot of different brushes. (If you want to know what’s used on a specific image, please give me the post’s ID number and I’ll find it on my blog and tell you!)

Here are some of my current favorite tools and brushes. I will give you the name that they are listed under so that you can find them in the clip database as well. These are listed in no particular order, because they’re all great!

This is a collection of fantastic tools to create work that looks like it’s a traditional marker piece.

The collection contains several different tools including brushes with chisel or brush tips, blenders, and a texture you can overlay on your image to achieve the grain effect you see in traditional, scanned image. The texture is even pre-set to have the correct blending type and opacity!

For extra fun, I suggest using colour swatches from your favorite art markers in conjunction with these tools, for even more authenticity.

Overall this set is AMAZING and I love just playing with it.

I’ve been using these pen tools a lot lately for sketching and sketch style ‘inks’. I’m not sure if they’re intended to mimic any specific type of pen, but they’re fun to use and the line quality they produce is really nice. “エッジ鉛筆“ in particular is one of my current favorites!

Created by the same person who made the fantastic marker brush set, they’ve also created an amazing watercolour set! Like the marker set, it comes with several tools with different looks and effects and overlays you can put over your image (I use the ‘pigment pooling’ texture from this set a lot). There are also blenders in this as well.

My favorite feature of this set and what makes it rank higher than other, similar watercolour sets is the colour blending effect. These brushes can use a single colour, or it can use both your main and sub colour, showing one colour when you press lightly and another when you put more pressure. This allows for some great depth of colour and more natural flow to the blending. Fantastic!

There’s more, but these are the things I’ve been using the most lately. I highly recommend checking out the stuff in the Clip database, you might find something you love.

taboot  asked:

Any advice on enrichment activities for quail and/or finches? I vary what food I give them + where I put food to encourage foraging and such and rearrange their enclosures whenever I clean them :>

Those all sound like good starts! You can also put novel objects outside their cage for them to observe (if inside would be too scary), drape fabric inside their enclosures or over their perches for different textures, or set a CD player to play them unique sounds/music. 

Song: Can’t Wait
Artist: Dark Time Sunshine
Year: 2012
Why it’s Dope: An absolutely RADIANT lead synth that kicks off the track with great zeal, strong drum set patterns/textures that perfectly juxtapose with the brighter tones, a silky smooth bassline that gives the track a firm backbone, and superb rapping from Onry Ozzborn that is honest, relaxed, and well-written.

Is Photoshop applying the same texture to every brush in your set?

And even though you’ve triple checked to make sure all brush options are not locked, any texture change you make to one brush is made to all of your brushes?

Got a fix for ya.

Texture, in particular, is a feature that where this problem occurs.

In the Brush Preset pallet, TURN OFF “Protect Texture” if it’s on (mine was for some reason) and don’t lock it.

In the drop-down menu, select “Reset All Locked Settings” and reselect any brush in your set. You’ll see that they all now have their own custom texture settings again.

Adobe at some point thought it was a grand old idea to have options to make all textures on your brush set identical in image, scale, and depth. Maybe they had something good going for a certain group of people, but for me it was ruining all of my brushes. Hope that helps.


(((I’m mostly putting this up here because my SAI has trouble saving my brush settings so I have to re-set them every time I re open SAI)))

But anyway here’s a brush that I use for painterly-type stuff. It has a lot of texture and is great for loose paintings. I’ve tweaked it quite a bit since first using it to get it to look how I want, especially with the blender. If you change the settings just a little bit on the blender it changes completely, so you can get a few different effects out of it.
