this looked better in photoshop tho

euvoi  asked:

i've already checked your faq and such, so pardon me for asking. May I know what your digital brush settings are? I like the lines you used for the "Adrien in a bowl" sketch. thanks :)

i’ve been asked this before, but i can’t find the post now, sooo… basically it’s mainly just a flat round that’s been squashed and tilted a bit???

in brush tip shape:

in shape dynamics:

[i don’t remember what the checked ‘smoothing’ does… i think that’s new from photoshop cc but i made this brush back when i was using photoshop cs3 sooo…]

i have one angled left and one right, but i usually use the one i have selected cos i am right handed lol. [i do swap to the other angle sometimes tho…if you are left handed, the other one is prolly gonna be your primary one.]

this is what i have mine set as for inks/sketches:

so yea i basically never use 100%/100% xD;;;; and the difference is pretty subtle but i find my lines look a lot better and they come out more correct when i have the squished brush instead of the flat round ;;;; hope this helps ;0;/

missmisanthropic  asked:

Hard Question Time brought to you by yours truly: If you could date ANY iteration of a character Katie McGrath has ever played, who would you select? The character will come with her canon flaws, (Vampirism?, Family issues? Uh, Magic?) benefits ( Heck yeah, Magic?! Genius level smarts?), interests (Art?, Espionage?) etc. which may impact your decision. Happy ruminating. ;-)

…!!! @missmisanthropic WHY?! Why would you do this to me? Hmmm. I’ve got some drinks in me so that means rambling. Let’s consider all of this calmly and rationally. I would list each character but I fear my poor followers may run away screaming. Instead I will list my absolute favorites and carefully consider my options. Note that I will be leaving out minor characters such as Bess and others.

First up - Lucy Westenra.
Canon Flaws - Vampirism. In love with another woman.
Canon Benefits - GAAAAAY. Is the vampirism really a flaw though? I mean, come on.

With Katie’s portrayal of Lucy, it is hard to say as we, sadly, never got a good look at what Baby Gay Vampire!Lucy would grow to be. Unfortunately, prior to her change, Lucy was suffering quite a bit (Of course she was, Katie played her). She was confused, heartbroken, and really questioning her own humanity and life choices. It is quite possible that she felt she had no choice in who she was at all. She didn’t choose to be gay in Victorian England. She didn’t choose to love her best friend. She certainly didn’t choose to be a socialite and “proper wife” to an English gentleman. And she absolutely didn’t choose to be a vampire, a monster, as Dracula so aptly put it. MY BABY IS NO MONSTER!

It is possible that Lucy could have eventually grown to be the sweet and innocent looking, yet completely relentless killer vamp. I am not quite sure if I can deal with that. However! If she were to change me, ditch her feelings for Mina, and we could be super awesome killer vampires together? Yeah I could definitely deal with that. Throw that in with being charming, witty, and sweet, with the perfect amount of bite to her (See what I did there?), I would be a happy lesbian.

Verdict - Jury is out. Would I let her kill me? Yes, I would. Would I kill along with her? Yes, I would. Let us check out more options.

NEXT! - Morgana Pendragon
Canon Flaws - Major daddy issues. Slight anger issues. Bent on revenge. Manipulative.
Canon Benefits - Um… MAGIC. High Priestess. Dresses fabulously even when living in a shack in the woods. Savvy af, That Smirk™ tho. Driven to fight for what she believes in.

Who doesn’t love Morgana? Good, “evil,” it really doesn’t matter. The unfortunate matter is, and this makes my deliberation quite short, Morgana was on one hell of a mission. She was single-minded in this mission and nobody, nobody, was going to keep her from it. This means, she definitely wouldn’t have had time for poor, little, non-magical me. I mean if I had an army of immortal warriors or dark magical abilities of my own, I would try to win her affections in a heartbeat. But the only thing I would be able to offer her is my heart… Which she probably would have used, along with some crazy incantation, to kill all of her enemies. I don’t wish to be sacrificed. I like my heart where it is thank you, my lady.

Verdict - Morgana, you do you, booboo. Imma keep my options open, love. You TOTALLY have my vote for Queen of Camelot. Please don’t kill me. Oh my poor heart. I love her so much.

Third - Jodi Rutherford 
Canon Flaws - Hmmm… attraction to men that tend to mistreat her? Even Kobus was a bit of a dick at first but we aren’t talking about him are we? No love, we aren’t. This is about Jodi. She also seems to feel the need to ‘fix’ those she is with.
Canon Benefits - Complete sweetheart, excellent teacher, awkward and goofy despite her shy and sometimes anxious demeanor. Film/theater geek. Animal lover. She doesn’t care what she is, or what she is doing, as long as she can wake up next to the person she loves.

This… little bean. This absolute cupcake. I just… look at her. Jodi is another Katie character that just needs to be loved. She is described as someone that strives to be liked because she doesn’t like herself. Which is ridiculous. What’s not to like? She is kindhearted, generous and is really just looking for a place to belong. Total ball of fluff and I love her.

Verdict - Jury is out…but looking good for her.

NEXT UP - The lovely, yet deadly, Gloria Miller, everyone!
Canon Flaws - She’s like some crazy CIA, Secret Agent, Jane Bond, Assassin.
Canon Benefits - She’s like some crazy CIA, Secret Agent, Jane Bond, Assassin.

This one is tough for me because this means she would always be off on some insane mission and I am totally one of those people that would be constantly worried that she wouldn’t come back to me. I’m soft. And let’s be honest, would I ever truly get a chance to know who she really is?

*gay gasp!* WHAT IF I am her mission?? What if she is actually working undercover to, I don’t know… I’m not special. I’m probably not her mission. But she would never be home and I need love and attention. Soft, remember? Sorry, Gloria :(

Verdict - I cannot date you. BUT PLEASE PROTECT ME I AM VERY VULNERABLE! Oh and teach me how to shoot things. Like, fruit and cans. I don’t want to kill anyone.

Hellooooo Kate Foster!
Canon Flaws - Biphobic af!!!! I’m not bisexual but, come on Kate! Not cool, love. Stop that shit. Angry af! Family issues aka homophobic parents.
Canon Benefits - Smooth af. Seductive af. Queen of eye-sex Consent kink, perhaps? Kate, …I like being told what to do… Ahem. I digress.

Lezbehonest. How many of you have been completely destroyed by the 20 minute episode of Dates? Hm? Thought so. Kate is very enigmatic. Which I like to a point. She seems to be making attempts at being cool and open-minded. But you can tell she has been burned before. Le baggage? Maybe. But we all have it, don’t we? My biggest worry would be that because of this, she is quick to pick a fight and run. We saw it. When things get serious and even a little difficult, she is out the door. That is… problematic.

She still strikes me as being kind, genuine and loving with the right woman in the right situation. But that fear of mine would always remain. Fear would lead to insecurities. Insecurities would lead to fighting. Fighting would lead to no more Kate. I could delve deeper into this gem, however I will leave it here.

Verdict - Kate, buy me a Bellini (or five) and we can certainly have a great time. (That totally wasn’t meant to be sexual). I meant we can hang out some time. But you know, not like a date? Flirty BFFs maybe? Do you like my bracelet? I got it in Tuscany!

Sigh …LenaLuthor! I have so many feelings about this woman it’s crazy.
Canon Flaws - A little shady. Family issues like you would not believe. Has a bit of a target on her back.
Canon Benefits - Highly intelligent. NERD! Working hard to make a life and name for herself outside of her family. RICH AF (take care of me please). Just wants a damn hug and thank you! Girlfriend of Supergirl. Looks better in prison blues than I do on my best day and with Photoshop. The Lip Bite™ tho.

Considering the fact that most of those that have endured my rambling are huge Katie fans and/or SuperCorp shippers, I will not get into the crazy long description for Lena. She has proven time and again that she only wants to do what is right, despite her upbringing. A most admirable quality is that she fights with her wits but also looks like she can defend herself when the time comes. A distressed damsel, she is not. I think here, I would have to go back to my argument regarding Morgana and Gloria. Lena simply would not have the time. She is running a billion dollar corporation, designing gadgets, and apparently she is constantly thinking up schemes to ensure justice is done. Oh, and um… hi… SHE LOVES KARA DANVERS! I can’t compete with that!!! I mean, I can be pretty awesome, but I am not Kara. So… problematic.

Verdict - Lena, I adore you. And I hope we can be friends. Do you need anything? Should I deliver flowers to Kara for you? Do you need me to proofread your love letters and poetry? I can run and get you more wine. Do you need company for the holidays? Do you need a bridesmaid for your wedding? Have you and Kara set a date? Keep me updated. My calendar is open.

So here we are! There are more characters to consider, but we would be here all night/day. And I am pretty sure most of you already hate me. So I will keep this short. FINAL ANSWER: JODI RUTHERFORD. JUST LET ME LOVE YOU!

This woman tho. important person in resistance. looking amazing. damn.

i know i just basically scream about donnie yen’s instagram but like i’m fucking serious

During photoshoots his eyebrows are horrendous and fake af but in real life they look super duper natural and beautiful? is it just a sneaky photoshop filter? is it micro blading?? is it some real magic eyebrow gel? eyebrow pencil? like, is it too weird to ask?? because i wanna ask????? i want the trick behind the natural looking eyebrows??????

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips on making edits as amazing as yours???

You’re very sweet thank you!! My suggestion is that everything takes time to improve, so patience is one important thing to keep in mind. Second, practice always makes better! Even tho I’ve been using photoshop for about 10 years, there’s still new techniques to discover every day. Plus, photoshop is not a dead app, it gets new updated time by time, and there’s always new things to explore! 

Another suggestion is that, when you have an idea but not sure how to accomplish it, try to figure it out from your experience, don’t look up for tutorial or give up so quick. Just like my latest Peter manip, i got this idea for a couple days but wasn’t entirely sure how to make it happen. And I ended up finishing it without looking up for tutorials and I was really happy!!! But don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong about looking up tutorials online, most of time they are really helpful especially for users with less experience. But if you always have to rely on them then it’s hard for you to improve because thinking!!!!! is the most important part of graphic design.

One last thing, read more, watch more and try more. The more you’ve seen, the more ideas you can borrow whenever you’re seeking for inspiration. Follow some art accounts or look up other people’s works on behance, dribbble, etc. It’s not suggesting you to plagiarize, it’s to motivate yourself like “hey, why have i never thought about that??” stay inspired, stay creative! <3

this is garbage asdfghj sorry i wanted to contribute to saigenos week but all i have is a scanner and messy writing aaah i want a drawing tablet so baddd

saigenos week day 3 - relaxation

Update ⭐

A lot has happened in the last 24 hours but hey, I made some changes!

  • I updated my blog layout! I figured that I didn’t really like the standard blog layout so I went for something a little more ~fancy~, but still easy to edit because I’m a grandma who doesn’t know how to make my blog look super cool lol. I’m aware the tags at the top don’t actually work but idk how to change it? I’ll figure it out in time.
  • I deleted all those anon hate messages. Yeah… I kind of didn’t want people to see them on my blog because I’m not the sort of person who likes drama and I always like to promote positivity when I can. I’ll admit I didn’t help the situation and normally I would reply calmly and with dignity, but I was very stressed (tbh still am because of uni) and it spilt over, which is very unlike me. However, I did keep receipts if anyone actually cares.
  • But… I left all the nice messages on my blog! I’m really grateful to everyone who went out of their way to say something nice to me, including my irl buddy who I honestly didn’t think would ever respond to it haha. Some of the messages were so sweet and nice that I nearly cried happy tears, lol.
  • If there is anyone who is considering sending anon hate my way, consider yourself reported and blocked. There are so many more things to worry about in the world like the abuse of human rights in other countries, racism and homophobia which still prevails in a lot of places in the world, and tbh if you think sending anon hate to anyone is okay then you need to reevaluate your life. As Jumin Han would say, “it’s a waste of time and emotion”. Once again, I will keep receipts of any sort of hate my way.

But I hope y’all are okay! I know many of you are starting school/uni/college/a new job and so forth and I wish everyone the best of luck!

(Ps. No headcanons until Sunday/Monday - I’m actually preparing an engagement party and then attending it! But I think you guys will like this request)

Thank you for reading this! ⭐⭐

anonymous asked:

Got any tips for a wannabe sfm artist I like me?

oh man.. where to start. ;o,

First things first, practice, practice, practice, before you start with making a poster I first suggest you to experiment with the tool so you get the feel of the programm. Right clicking opens you option to spawn models and map (depends where you click!)

I’ve before was a  GMOD artist so I was a bit used with 3D Posing. Your best friend for posing would be the rotate, and move tool. If you right click on a model you should find an option called rig_biped_simple. It’s also pretty handy and easier for posing a model!

(here’s an old GMOD picture)

Again it takes practice and the more you want to try, the more better you get and you start working with more complex things!

I too had some issues with SFM at first

(i’ve deleted the very old ones but you can see somehings a bit wrong here)

Then, I know it sounds now I’m lazy typing here but, look for tutorials!

I have this handy playlist that explain lighting, scenebuild and SSAO settings and other various stuff that may be a good help!

Inside theres also a tutorial on how to import tf2 cosmetics into SFM! And they all really helped me!

Then ressources. If you want more then what SFM offers I suggest you

  • The SFM workshop on steam
  • mods.tf (PLEASE: WATCH THIS VIDEO Otherwise you may overwrite exitsting stuff!) 
  • SFMLab (The site has a lot of 18+ Content so be warned!)
  • TF2maps (has also a lot of maps and props!)

remember that tf2 stuff goes to the tf2 folders while the rest inside the usermod!

also: never be afraid to look at references! Sometimes tho the model wont pose the way you like it to be at times :c but hey, better than nothing!

Another thing I do is post processing with photoshop.

Since I can’t get the results I want I use Photoshop (GIMP works too and is free!) and edit stuff around.


Then as for render: I use these settings

And render it like this:

These are pretty much the basics! Just work on them slowly and don’t rush! With time you will start to experiment and learn new things c: >

Hell, even I am still practicing and trying out new things!

I hope this was any help. I’m terrible with explaining things! Let me know if you need help! :D

but there’s nothing more sadistic than an infant
waving his pistol in my face
he wants me right down on my knees
crumbling in disgrace

and after a while he calms down
and he looks at me like a prince
but i know i better bite the bullet
‘cause it’s just another one of his jedi mind tricks
