kehlani: I just got my second Grammy nomination for participation in Suicide Squad which is up for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. Unreal. Now, I will have ice cream for lunch. And maybe dinner. Love you all.
We are so fucking lucky to have Beyoncé in our lives jus know that like mama dances in heels, gives us so many fuckin visuals, hits all her notes and then some, and gives it her ALL on stage 100% of the time and literally NOBODY else does that we take her for granted so much and she’s such a hard working person literally her only competition is herself she is so ahead of the game and she has inspired so many people around the world with her music and ALL of her albums are masterpieces like who the fuck can record 14 songs and 17 FUCKKN music videos in secrecy while on tour like how the fuck is that possible her work ethic is unreal and I TRULY believe she is the best of the best like no one will ever be able to do what she has done and she’s not even done yet
Some tidied-up portfolio pages! Some art that you may have seen, some you may have not, and some totally new stuff as well.
Going to take this moment to say that I’m really proud of where I am art-wise. I’ve come a long way in these past few years (heck, just in these past couple months!) and I’m really looking forward to gaining more experience and hopefully getting some stories finally hammered out in the near future!
what "auditory and visual processing problems" means
When you hear “auditory and visual processing problems” you may think of sensory overload, of sensory sensitivities, of everything being seen as extra loud and extra bright. This can be a part of it, but it is not all it is. Here are other things that can also be part of auditory and visual processing problems:
- everything seeming to go in slow motion
- everything seeming to go in fast-forward
- everything seeming surreal, unreal, distorted
- instead of seeing people and objects, seeing shapes and colors and patterns of motion and having to piece them together, which can take time and energy and be hard or impossible
- people talking sounding like the adults in Charlie Brown
- everything being blurry and confused, as if far away or underwater
- being unable to tell where sounds are coming from, which can, among other things, make it very hard to tell who is speaking
- sounds and people’s voices fading in and out
- having trouble telling sounds from voices
- processing delay: you accidentally knock a book off a shelf and don’t hear the sound of it hitting the ground until five seconds or twenty seconds or three minutes later
All of these things can vary day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute. They can present as someone seeming confused and disoriented and can be misinterpreted as someone being drunk or high or sleep deprived, shy and hesitant to speak, scared or defiant and reluctant to follow instructions, rude, unable to understand the wording of instructions, or “off in their own little world” and not paying attention.
zynab introduced me to teuvo tulio who is a finnish director of extremely passionate overwrought melodramas from the 40s-50s with female protagonists and some of the most amazing visuals i have ever seen. last time i went to her house we watched this, his last film made 20 years after his heyday in 1974, called Sensuela. It has beautiful primary color visuals and an unreal TV set quality to the entire thing but tells a very serious story about a woman taken advantage of (as most melodramas too) with an over-the-top camp aesthetic and heavy appeal to the sexploitation market. It’s exraordinary and these pics dont even do it justice. this would def make that list.
The world and visuals of Samorost all incorporate an unreal element that makes everything feel equally fake, yet oddly organic. Because everything in the game possesses this quality, coupled with the unusual solutions and reactions of each puzzle element, the adventure gameplay is as much about exploration of each screen as it is interacting and combining elements found.
Henry Joseph Darger, Jr. (/ˈdɑːrdʒər/; c. April 12, 1892 – April 13, 1973) was a reclusive American writer and artist who worked as a hospital custodian in Chicago, Illinois. He has become famous for his posthumously discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is Known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, along with several hundred drawings and watercolor paintings illustrating the story. The visual subject matter of his work ranges from idyllic scenes in Edwardian interiors and tranquil flowered landscapes populated by children and fantastic creatures, to scenes of horrific terror and carnage depicting young children being tortured and massacred. Much of his artwork is mixed media with collage elements. Darger’s artwork has become one of the most celebrated examples of outsider art.
Honestly the only thing scarier than the thought of dying is the thought of existing……….it’s kind of hard to explain..idk if anyone else feels this or anything so I tried to express it in visuals. maybe someone will relate
Literally everything she writes is an absolute masterpiece, including her new fic Sting !!!!
let me tell you guys, this fanart is looong overdue because I have have so much Tendencies fanart just lying around unfinished, but lord you people need to read that series. And this series. The opportunities for bee related puns are unreal and i am living
ANYWAYS, here you go, and I hope this is at least A LITTLE close because i suck at reading and also visualizing things and just fill in the blanks with incorrect ideas most of the time, but i digress.
TLDR: Bee Adrien is a punk loser and you need to read everything by KryallaOrchid
Listen, pop music isn’t usually my thing. However, if you don’t think Lemonade was the best album of the year (or like, decade) you can fight me. There were so many different styles of music, and she perfected every single one. “Don’t Hurt Yourself” with Jack White? I was LIVING.
The video was unreal with the poems of Warsan Shire spliced into the incredible visuals. It came out with the right tone and the exact right time. Beyonce is a damn genius. You stuffy white Grammy jags better recognize and stop acting like Beckys (not that your dumbass opinions actually carry weight with anyone that matters). Boy bye.
p.s. This is not a knock on Adele at all. I love 25. It’s beautiful. But it doesn’t have the cultural, social and political impact that Lemonade does. It’s beautiful but it’s not earth-shattering. Lemonade is both.
ik all the visuals in the badlands trailer were amazing, but can we also take a minute to appreciate halsey’s narration? bc holy fuck this girl is such an artist, she creates so much imagery and is so fucking eloquent and educated and gotdamn crEATIV E to have come up with shit like this!!! no one else in the music industry has the ability to create and pull off a concept as well as she is doing right now and that’s why she should be acknowledged by every fucking person on this planet ok she’s unreal, she’s taking over, and i’m so here for it
As many of you all know, one of the most commonly theorized fan endings is a “Sacrifice Self” ending: An ending where Max ends up getting shot instead of Chloe. This project is my own take on this ending. I used raw audio files from the game itself to put together this ending.
THIS IS AN AUDIO ONLY PROJECT! Reason being is that I do not have skills to animate models or to develop scenes in Unreal Engine software…However, if someone wants to take up the visual portion of this project, PLEASE MESSAGE ME! I would love to see this scene rendered in UE4 or other 3D software!!
MP3 file is in the video description for download! AND REBLOG THE HECK OUT OF THIS PROJECT!! PLEASE!!
Legion is so good holy shit ep 1 was awesome. The atmosphere and the visuals reminded me of Mr. Robot and I love it. But those effects though, that was unreal. The quality and effort is commendable. It was like a high-budget film. I love the unreliable narrator aspect of it too, and the protagonist is charming and adorable but I like his attitude as well. Mixing sci-fi, superhero and psychological is so interesting to me, I’ve never encountered something like this before. Ahh that was just so great!!! I’m so excited for ep 2!!
Work in progress for my Independent Study module at Napier University. The interior I’m preparing for Unreal Engine 4 real time architectural visualization. Some of the models here are freebies I downloaded from various sites.
Additionally I’m also going to render some views in Vray later on (because why not). Tons and tons of work. I’m using this mainly as an excuse to learn Allegorithmic Substance and PBR workflow. PBR is the future!
These images are from an upcoming movie, and it looks absolutely amazing.
But get this …
THEY ARE FREAKING CGI CHARACTERS FROM FINAL FANTASY XV!!!
When these screencaps showed up on my Facebook feed, I thought Square Enix was using live-action actors for just half a second. Then I remembered that this is Square Enix. They don’t do that. Maybe for motion capture, but nothing beyond that.
I am at a total loss for words at the level of visual detail SE has achieved. Completely and totally at loss. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the entire point of CGI.
It is artistry and science rolled into one to make you believe the unreal is real. I hope Hollywood execs look at this and say, “damn, this is an industry standard we should be meeting with all A-list movies.”
I admire the Japanese animation industry so much. They have such passion and drive for everything they work on. It blows me away. It truly does.
you guys, i met BTS for real. They were all beautiful.
Taehyung looks like a porcelain doll. He’s unreal. We had a one second eye contact (i died, it was more than enough for me) I literally thought i wouldnt get to see him upclose because he kept going to the other side of the stage. HIS VISUAL WAS UNREAL. my world stopped when he approached our side. Everything was on slow motion.
Jeongguk looked like a baby with a really muscly body. He is the cutest smol squishy sexy baby faced. His voice is like honey, i was on cloud nine. His english was so cute.
Jimin ohmyg don’t let me get started on PARK FRIGGIN jimin. I’m a taehyung biased okay. Tae is my boo bae but jeesuz holy i cannot stop looking at park jimin. He was glowing!!!! even if the spotlight wasnt at him (he doesnt need it, he has his own built in spotlight) I swear to god his stage presence and stare is everything. U BIAS wrecker you!!! (i still love u tae)
Yoongi was cheeky and was so good at live rapping. HE WAS MADE TO DO THIS. you see i was seated at the top most part. I saw him approach our side and his presence was so magnetic i literally ran down as fast as lighting so that i can see him upclose. I have never run as fast as i did that day. YOONGi U DA MAN. MY MAN.
Hoseok was literally the life of the party, what he was on the videos he is 10x more. We did a word formation project and he was the first one who saw it and figured it out. He is hands down the best dancer like wow!!!
Namjoon went to our side one time and did his dimply smile and his wiggly eyebrows and literally everyone on our section went “aww” this man is gorgeous. He was sick tho, but to see him try hard is more than enough. I love you joon-ah.
Seokjin, okay first and foremost JIN knows how handsome he is. You can literally feel from his oh so confident aura that he knows, and god he did this point thingy with his fingers and raised his eyebrows (charmingly) and we all giggled. JEESUz yes i dont even know, it was so funny and cute and rude and ughh.
