the coloring was not good on you

It’s so funny seeing white LGBT folks complain about the modified Pride flags by saying “the flag is about sexuality not race!!” because for LGBT People of Color, our gender/sexuality is tied heavily to our racial and ethnic identities. Our experiences as LGBT folk are informed by our race and a great many of our racial experiences are influenced by our gender/sexuality. Just because your whiteness affords you enough privilege to be able to separate you LGBT activism and identity from your race doesn’t mean WE as LGBT People of Color can. So. If we want to modify Pride flags to remind the LGBT community of the need to be intersectional, then we have the right to.

You’re welcome for this nugget of wisdom, support LGBT People of Color, hope you had a good Pride.

This is a screenshot of my Mel drawing yesterday BEFORE adding ‘Colour Balance’

Just a small tips to peeps about using ‘Colour Balance’ layer :3

Here’s the after using Colour Balance:

See the differences?

It brings some mood to the drawing.

For clip studio paint users : LAYERS > NEW CORRECTION LAYER > COLOR BALANCE

Photoshop users: LAYERS > NEW ADJUSTMENT LAYER > COLOR BALANCE

Play around with the tones/gradient balance such as : Shadow, Halftone (midtones for PS) and Highlight


This is my secret recipes to yall folks!

hope it helps you to make good arts in the future!

Nine to Five (Part 3)

Pairing: Stiles x Reader

A/N: The response to Part 2 was absolutely out of this world. I couldn’t believe it, I’m so happy that people are loving this as much as I am writing it. Enjoy Part 3; Just a reminder that this is a drabble series so I’m not trying to make each part 2k long, this part is only 905 words so don’t bombard me with “why is it so short” drabble series

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 (coming soon)

Over a month has passed, the most amazing and exciting month of your life. Accepting the job to be Rosie’s nanny was definitely the best thing you’ve ever done. She was a wonderful, adoring little girl that deserved the best in life, and you were determined to give it to her; along with the help from Stiles, who you would willingly give the award for Best Father within a beat of the heart. He had so much time for his daughter even with working a full time job, he never came home grumpy or too tired to spend time with her. Every time you left the house in the evening, he had her cooped in his arms.

Chantilly Lace: You know what, no. You need to hear this. Ms. Bitters… I don’t care.

Victoria: Excuse me?

Chantilly Lace: I don’t care what you think of me.

Victoria:

Chantilly Lace: What I did is none of your business, and while I probably won’t ever live down the consequences, my choices were my own and something wonderful happened that night. You can try and shame if you want, but I don’t care. So you and the council can kindly take your morals and shove them up your berry hole. Good day!

i’m never going to reblog those “support poc representation” posts or variations thereof ever again because every time a genuinely good show pops up with many well-written main characters of color who are human and realistic and authentic, who are clearly written properly and with good intentions, said show will always, without fail, flop. shows with actual good racial representation will never gain the visibility that shows with a high number and low quality of characters of color do gain. fans of the 100, for example get to say that their show is progressive because some of the main characters are nonwhite, and that it’s “racist” to want the show to get cancelled, all the while turning their heads when you remind them of the brutality inflicted against the characters of color on that show, of how nonwhite cast members were treated by the white cast members or writers or fans, of how the premise of the show itself is basically neo-colonialism with a science fiction spin, of the appropriation and mockery of south asian and indigenous cultures, etc. that’s what you get when you have a show that sets itself up as “diverse” yet uses its diversity tokens as pawns, punching bags, scapegoats, sexual objects, desexualized tokens, and tools. meanwhile, genuinely good shows like the get down and still starcrossed are cancelled because they don’t have enough of a viewership to sustain them. 

what this proves is that even if you claim to support “poc representation”, you either don’t want to see us nonwhities on your screen at all, or you’d love to see us on your screen if only to watch us suffer, squirm, cry out in pain, and die. you want to fetishize us or make jokes at our expense. you want to see characters of color die for and serve white characters. but you cannot fathom watching us in loving relationships or having fun or having fleshed out plotlines. you’d rather see a man of color be reduced to his relationship with a white woman, one that is not as of yet romantic yet already has a power imbalance in place (the 100) then genuinely good interracial relationships including same-gender interracial relationships (the get down, still starcrossed, etc). you’d rather see racist white gay characters (the 100, supergirl) than lgbt characters of color (shadowhunters, the get down, etc). you’d rather see racist white women than women of color. 

be as explicit as possible, at least. save us all the trouble and outrightly admit that you hate us and that our problems inconvenience you. your entertainment, your sexual pleasure, and your fun time are all more important than humanizing media representation of people of color.

UPDATE ACT 3 TONIGHT

Hump day means drunk dials! James and Cat talk CatCo and the future, while Cadmus make their next move.

This gifset is a glorious ‘Previously on’ moment brought to you by @mitski. Love on it at AO3 or in her tumblr ask box

Now let’s get back to @subcutaneous7 and the spooky tale she’s taking us on. 

Kara felt like everything around her was spinning, composed of snapshots rather than actual live images behind her eyelids. As wasted as she was, she was also determined. She hauled her laptop onto the dining room table, flopping into her chair before opening it up, forgetting why she had done so in the first place. Her eyes glazed across the length of her apartment, taking in all the pretty colors. The antique lights above the island in the kitchen looked like giant fireflies with halos around them. She spotted her phone on the counter next, carrying her feet as fast as she could, even though they felt like lead. Finally, she picked up the device, perching on a stool before calling one of the only numbers she kept on speed dial.

“Are you alright?” Cat answered groggily. “What time is it? Is something wrong?”

“I am grood,” Kara assured her. “Good, even. Golden.”

“It’s 3:30 in the morning.” Cat yawned, and Kara tried to ignore the sound of rustling sheets. “I was just settling into the first of my two required hours of sleep, so there better be something–”

“I went to that party tonight,” Kara spilled like it was a salacious secret.

“I see.” Cat’s tone went from annoyed to slightly more interested. “Well, that explains things. Are you about to tell me you got arrested? Please say you weren’t accidentally booked on solicitation, Kara. I know you millennials and your tendency to shy away from clothing in the wee hours, particularly where costumes are concerned. Really. I expected better.”

“I… what are you… no, silly, I went as you.” She blushed, only vaguely aware of her overly familiar verbiage. “I mean, not you you, but a cat. A kitty.”

Read Act 3 on AO3.

Runner ups

There will be a second place and third place winner as well. These winners will receive a head shot doodle of their choice, in this style:

Runner ups will receive their doodles once the 1st place winner gets theirs.

Process

I will input all of the names into a randomizer one week (July 5th) after this is posted. Once the winners are selected, I will make an announcement with a screenshot of the winning names and conclude the selection process (around 8pm CST).

To The Winner (also applies to runner ups)

I will message you (make sure to have it enabled!) asking about:

- if it’s okay for me to post the art or keep this giveaway private

The time it will take to complete the work will depend entirely on the subject matter and my schedule at the time, but it will not take more than 2 weeks.

My regular art schedule will resume as usual. Thank you everyone and good luck to those who enter! 

I’ve decided to make a little list of things that age regressors can do if they don’t have a carer! Kind of like a how to be your own carer💚
(Of course every regressor is different and not everyone will want to/enjoy these!)
🐢 pack yourself a lunch! You can use cookie cutters to make shaped sandwiches/other food cute shapes :o
🐢 Put your drawings and coloring pages on the fridge! Give yourself a sticker for every page as a good job!
🐢 If you have a backyard, go on a scavenger hunt! Look for sticks that are shaped like letters, rocks that are smaller or bigger than a certain size, or interesting leaves!
🐢 Journal about what you did today! Decorate the pages with stickers and glitter if you have it.
🐢 make a chore chart! Or use one from the internet. You can use a marker or stickers to mark when you’ve done your chores.
🐢 Alternatively make a self care chart! This is a little different from a chore chart because it would probably include things like showering/bathing, brushing your teeth, and eating every day.
🐢 Pack a backpack and go on a field trip! It doesn’t have to be far, you can field trip to your backyard! Pack a sandwich and a coloring book or paper to draw on.
Feel free to add on to this list!! I love you, babies!! 💚💚

Thursday rant

I think I’m going to stop wearing makeup this summer. 1) I need some color in my face (I look like a ghost) and 2) my blemishes are there and there’s nothing I can do about that except embrace them. I shouldn’t be ashamed of them. I had a lot of acne growing up and oh fucking well. It happens. The female body and its hormones are strange and mysterious things.

I might not even wear makeup for my date on Sunday.

This means I need to invest in really good sunscreen for my face. I was thinking of getting Glossier’s Invisible Shield, but I’m open to suggestions from all you fabulous Tumblr folk.

When each frame of a 16-frame animation takes a good 10 minutes to clean up and color… and then you check and you’ve only done half of them after a matter of hours

@are-y0u-satisfied there u go bitch you’re tagged

anonymous asked:

Hello, a bit of an oddball question, though I decided to ask while browsing your blog... What is a good substitute for wine when cooking? I have a severe allergy to grapes and, by extension, wine itself. I've been putting off cooking many things because of this.

Hmmm

Other deep colored fruits mixed with a little lemon, a splash of alcohol from another source. They will be sweeter. I should think beets, bell pepper, vodka, and some red fruit would mimic a few red varietals, but you’d need the assistance of a palate to taste and compare to develop it.

You’ve given me a thought!

Give me a few weeks. Perhaps I will come up with the perfect cocktail for you.

Lost in space and lost from their families.

At least they have each other, and sometimes that is the only thing they can hang on… and give each other some hope.

Pidge and Lance relationship could go to so many places :’0

Since one anon suggested Lance and other anon suggested Pidge in the same color palette, I just mixed them and…got carried away.
