Can you give me some advices/tutorials on how to make gifs? I suck at it and hell, I've been trying to gif for two days and I still can't :(
Of course! Let me just say when you start off making gifs it can be very difficult and confusing (I know it was for me). So I’m going to try and give you lots of tips and things that I’ve learned so hopefully you can skip lots of the hard parts I had to learn on my own. Also don’t get discouraged if you feel like your gifs aren’t turning out amazing, you’ve just started and it’s taken me over the course of 3 years to start making ones I’m actually happy with, as always practice gives you experience! Anyways enough of my rambling lets get started.
how did this get made? ∟fast & furious 6 (2013): the minute the credits went down, i gave this movie a standing ovation. i leapt out of my seat and started clapping and i said to my friend next to me, “that was flawless.” - jason mantzoukas
Fantasy Sylthos AU request for @sylviesathos ↳ N e v e r w h e r e
Under the streets of Paris there’s a place most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour and beautiful girls in black velvet. This is the city of the people who have fallen between the cracks.
Olivier d’Athos is a plain man with a dark past, good heart & an ordinary life that is changed forever a day he stops to help a girl he finds bleeding on a Paris sidewalk. From that moment forward, he is propelled into a world he never imagined existed – a dark subculture flourishing in abandoned subway stations and sewer tunnels below the city – a world far stranger and more dangerous than the only one he has ever known..
Hello! First I wanna thank you for your "Magnus and Jewelry" gifsets, they are super awesome. Now, may I ask you if it's possible for you to share the psd you used here >> /post/150867071183 . Magnus skin looks the perfect color and I think it will help many people who have hard time with coloring POC characters. Thank you :)
I’m glad you like it!! I’ll share my base PSD since I don’t really work with fully colored PSDs. I color each gif individually; the lighting is just too different scene to scene. Like, the layers for this gif would make Magnus in this one as orange as the sun if I transferred them straight over.
Here’s the base PSD I’ve made that I use for everything:
You’ll notice it’s very dark/minimal; it’s literally just a base. The way I use it is that while I’ll always alter the individual layers of my base + build on them, the order they’re in rarely changes. Additional layers usually go directly above or under to brighten and color, but almost never in between. I have a color adjustment tutorial here.
I find more important than the PSD itself is knowing what your final outcome should look like. So I’ve made a palette for Magnus (using my base PSD) that should hopefully serve as a reference point:
[Note that this doesn’t include stylized colorings – that’s a more complicated topic and at that stage it really just depends on the individual set. Some are totally fine but others are more iffy which is why I encourage people to learn proper skin tones first before experimenting.]
