time to close photoshop for the day

Commission OPEN for a very short time.

I will be taking four colour portraits over the next three days. So first come first serve as always. I am looking to warm up a bit before a large project so let me draw you! 

As always colour portraits are $25 and $10 for each additional subject - meaning person - in the drawing. 

At the end of the week, commissions will be closed for a long time due to a large project that I’m starting, so get a portrait while you can. 


this is how they survive. they paint the world full of shadows and then tell their children to stay close to the light. their light. their reasons, their judgments.
because in the darkness, there be dragons.
but it isn’t t r u e.

HEADCANON: I imagine one day Adrien doesn’t feel to well and has to go out and about without even brushing his hair or preparing for the day. And like anyone who goes to Wal Mart in their pajamas, he runs into everyone he knows. Marinette wouldn’t even recognize the poor model when he isn’t on his A game. Poor Marinette is convinced she ran into Chat Noir and discovered his secret identity.

I have two very close friends who let me borrow their tablet! So, naturally my first project would be Miraculous Ladybug! I have no clue what I’m doing but I am having so much fun!

Have you ever sat down and imagined a complete scenario of events when listening to a song?

I was sitting in the parking lot of an LA Fitness when listening to the song Lighthouse by Patrick Watson.  I associated this song to my friend Watson ( oddly enough) , my pet who was killed by coyotes around my birthday last year.  Like a song you connected to with the loss someone so very dear to your heart, Lighthouse was that song for my dear Watson.. but this song evokes such a broad spectrum of emotions; I couldn’t be crying over every time it debuted on my radio.

 The images you see in the video are what played through my mind as I attempted to come up with another topic for which the song could represent. I wanted t humor the thought of: 

“ What if the wolf let Lavellan come close?”

  I began to transcribe these images as jumbled words on the back side of medical documents.  Immediately after, I had a plan. Needless to say, I barely worked out that day. 

These all started as pencil scratches on a pad of paper which were later translated onto photoshop on my Cintiq, with that being said, know that I’ve at least traced over these lines 4 times with 45+ panels. 

I posted the story a day later than  originally planned; I completely missed #solasflufffriday.  After working with after effects for a business commercial I was tasked to do at my job, I found some really neat tricks that could make my video a little more immersive. There were too many things that could be enhanced,  so, after an intense debacle with my inner lazy, I jumped back in. Instead of one boring slide after another, I created a 3D environment to a set of otherwise static images. 

I wanted to bring attention to a few of my favorite slides that had little to no time in the spotlight due preplanned images that already had their place in the crescendos of the background music. Here’s the beloved team you spent hours exploring the hinterlands with. 

I hope I was able to bring you back into Sollavellan Hell, a place I’ve become well acquainted to in these past 4 weeks. 

Anywho… I hope you enjoy the watch. 

anonymous asked:

hey!!!!!! can i request a thingy where your boyfriend (you can pick a boy) catches you stalking some of the pretty, skinny models that he follows on instagram and you get insecure about it and liKE LOTS AND LOTS OF FLUFF IDK THANKS :)

Here you go, babe! I hope you like it! :)

“So what do you guys think of Gigi Hadid? I want your honest opinions,” the interviewer asks.

Michael laughs. “She’s hot, man. We’ve never met her, but she seems cool.”

“Luke?” The interviewer urges. “Your thoughts?”

Luke shrugs and smiles. “Yeah, I mean, she’s beautiful. What more can I say?”

This interview had taken place almost two days ago, but your boyfriend’s words won’t stop running through your mind.

‘She’s beautiful’

You and Luke have been together for over a year, and you’re certain that he would never cheat on you. However, sometimes it’s hard not to feel insecure when you’re dating a world famous rock star like Luke Hemmings. It only takes one look at him to know that he can do a lot better than you. 

You’re not a size zero. You don’t have the best figure. A few of your teeth are a bit crooked. And you’d much rather wear pajamas all day than dress up to go out. Sometimes it seems unreal to you that Luke would choose you out of all the girls he could have.

He assures you over and over again that you’re the most beautiful girl in his eyes, and most of the time that’s enough to make you feel worthy.

Now, though, thanks to that interview, your insecurities are starting to creep their way back into your mind. You’re currently scanning Instagram and looking at the different model accounts that Luke follows. You’re admiring their toned bodies and their perfect smiles.

You don’t even notice when a few tears start to slip down your cheek. You know Luke wouldn’t want you to do this to yourself, but you can’t help it. You just don’t always feel like you’re enough for him.

The door to your apartment opens and you quickly lock your phone and wipe away your tears. You stand up from the couch and turn to face Luke who’s just come home from band practice.

His smile fades when he notices your red, puffy eyes, and he immediately drops his bag and walks over to you. Wordlessly, he pulls you into a hug and holds you tightly against his chest.

“What’s wrong, (Y/N)?” He asks softly.

You pull away from him and fake a smile. “Nothing,” you say, sniffling slightly. “I’m fine.”

He rolls his eyes and brings his hand up to gently caress your cheek. “Please don’t lie to me. I want to help.”

You look down at your phone that you’d left on the couch and Luke takes the hint. He picks it up and unlocks it, his eyes narrowing at the pictures of the models that are covering the screen.

“What’s this?” He asks.

You shrug. “They’re all so beautiful, Luke. I’ll never be like them. You deserve someone that looks like that, not this,” you say, gesturing to yourself.

He shakes his head before closing out of Instagram and tossing your phone back to the couch. 

“(Y/N), how many times do I have to tell you before you’ll believe me? You are the most gorgeous person I’ve ever known. Those girls in those pictures aren’t real. They’re photoshopped and touched up and only eat one meal a day. I would never want to be with someone like that. You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me, (Y/N). I hate watching you sit here and believe that I would ever want anyone else.”

More tears are now falling down your face, but this time they’re happy tears.

You needed to hear this from Luke just one more time to help fight that little voice in your head that tells you you’re not good enough. 

“I love you,” you whisper as you bury your face in his chest.

“I love you too,” he answers. “Always.”

Hugs and kisses, it’s over, bye Meg

I know James & Pippa have gotten some flack for hiring a pr person and getting paparazzi honeymoon photos but personally I love it!

I believe Kate & Pippa are still each others best friends and Will & Harry are close and protective of each other. Not only did the James & Pippa’s pr person effectively shut down Meghan’s wedding day nonsense and limit her to nothing more than a blurry possibly photoshopped & or non discript car picture that could have been taken any time or place She also proved that a photographer can be hired to take and sell selective photos for them. It shows that Meg HAS BEEN DOING HER OWN BILLBOARD WALKS AND WAS NOT BEING STALKED BY REPORTERS OR PAPARAZZI!

Harry’s other ex girls/flings doing tv shows & ads including Chelsy Aya stuff on Dailymail makes them all look similar and easier for Harry to move on past Meghan.

I think he is already dating privately may have even had someone special at the wedding (not Meg) & everyone is protecting them. A lovely hardworking English lady that everyone will be proud of! Meg has joined  the cast of Harry exs!

Btw Did the Darren Fletcher photographer have ANY OTHER PICTURE CREDITS FROM THE WEDDING? Anyone else coming or going from the wedding or reception? I haven’t found any have you? ;) ;)

No nothing has turned up, I don’t if it does. Don’t mean to get off point but she looks linda blair in the exorcist, waiting for her head to spin around, lol thanks anon

Jill Valentine may be the master of unlocking, but she never had to picklock Chris’s heart because he straight up gave her the key. Or something nauseatingly corny like that. I really appreciate how they’ve been friends/partners/co-founders/team members for so long through all the dangers, struggles, and hard-earned victories. They seriously have a close, “ride or die” relationship.

Anyway, Happy Valentine’s (Valenfield) Day!  Regardless of your relationship status, always appreciate and love those around you. (aka follow the golden rule of Bros b4 Hoes). :)

He is your first love….I intend to be your last.

Just a reminder for my lovely Klaroline fandom that some times tends to overeact and freak out. There is a difference between a current -temporary- closure that allows people to move on until the time is right, from an endgame. Especially in a genre that is a tale about immortals and eternal promises.

Between someone’s first love and between their last there is also the in between. The one that matures you. With more people and relationships coming and going. The space in between that seems  as if the distance contains oceans that keep you apart from that promise… but it is that space that changes you and teaches you how to reach your last love. Every lesson becoming a step to the unavoidable destination.

Maybe in a day…in a year…of even in a century.

However long it takes.

“Y/N?” Justin called after me.

‘I’m done.” I said, before walking out.  Jay and I had been arguing for the past three days, and for those days we had been tiptoeing around each other. Not saying much. We were  both stubborn, and I didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of caving first. 

“Are you really still not talking to me because of that picture that came out??? He yelled after me. “It was photoshopped!” I stopped. letting the door close before I walked through it. I wanted to believe him so badly. 

“I can’t just ignore this Justin. This isn’t the first time this has happened.”

“But-” He started.

“But I mean it this time.” He whispered. I stood there, frozen in front of him. 

“Wh-” I started.

“Y/N, I…these last few days have been hell for me. I don’t know how to get you to believe me. I’m sorry. I’m sorry you ever had to see the picture. I’m sorry someone else showed you before I could! That was not what I wanted, You are my inspiration, my reason for living, and I never want you to doubt that. Every moment I could’t express that, or show you how much I love you has killed me!” My mouth opened in shock. Justin has never been this open with his true feelings before. The truth about his feelings has always been something that I had to coerce out of him. “I love you.” He whispered. “You don’t have to answer me now. I’m not trying to pressure you.” He said, reaching for me. I turned from him, trying to figure out how to respond. I turned, and then Justin grabbed me by the elbow.

“WHAT?” I yelled. He grabbed me roughly by the face, crashing his face into mine.

“We’re never not talking again.” He murmured against my lips.”


I would kill for you
I will steal for you
I’d to time for you
I would wait for you
I’d make room for you
I’d steal ships for you
To be close to you
To be part of you
‘Cause I believe in you
I believe in you
I would die for you

Whether you believe it’s platonic or not, it’s obvious that Sherlock Holmes is in love with John Watson and it’s painful to watch. 

Also, because I can’t figure out how to incorporate type into a picture above the skill set of a 14 year old with photoshop, I offer a de-textified version.

Picture Perfect?

We (or at least I) have so many expectations for our picture perfect life. Smiling kids, a beautiful spouse, a photoshopped mountain hike, ruffled instagram sheets.

We see pictures of smiling friends at a party, a perfect romantic date, a gorgeous spring day with the light filters showing off the lighting.

But how closely does real life actually resemble all of that? 

It feels that photoshopped pictures are actually prettier than real life nature.

Everything is so carefully arranged and portrayed that sometimes life doesn’t live up to our expectations.

Because if those picture perfect moments are the ones we’re yearning for and working for, then we will have very few moments to celebrate indeed.

When we’re constantly working for that kind of picture perfect life, do we have time to be happy in this moment? The moment full of stress, bleak skies, no hipster filters, an undecorated bedroom, a cry that messes up your makeup. Can we learn to celebrate the every day and see past the expectations that society sets?

I feel only then will we be content and happy.

Because sometimes life only looks like this.

Really plain and messy and not very picture perfect.

But I’m going to do my best to love it.
