Hi! Do you know some good psds/templates/picspam etc for making mock blogs for extra part of character audition? Thanks
So I’ve never done a mock blog before, or ever made external things for an audition before, so I don’t have any go-to things that I already know of off the top of my head. So I instead just started thinking about what I’d do if I were to make extra things, and here is just basically a dump of templates/insp ideas that I’d probably take a look at/consider using.
Those are just some of the stuff I’ve come across. If you’re in the need for more inspiration, I know most of the rps where people are actively making graphics and whatnot for their auditions usually have some sort of inspo tag that the rpers can put their creations in. So if the rp you’re interested in does have a tag like that, I’d check that tag out if I were in need for some inspo.
And on a sidenote, I also have this tag on my multifandom that I put pretty/nice gifs and edits under to look back on whenever I want to make something or need some inspo, so if you’re like, desperate for inspo, you can also check out my tag there. Most of the examples for the inspo part are posts that I have in that tag. Anyways, I hope you found this helpful, lovely!
i was asked to do a tutorial on how i make my icons by anonymous, so here’s my super easy way of doing it. there’s no major editing or backgrounds simply because i’m super lazy and i prefer the look of clean, bright icons. i’ve only ever used this method on cartoons (voltron. i’ve only ever made voltron icons lol), so i can’t say for sure whether this method would work well with real people. just keep that in mind!
for some examples of what you can make, here’s my icons page.
please like/reblog if you try it out, and feel free to ask me any questions.
how do you keep your gifs such good quality and still under 2mb?
well, it’s 3 mb so now that also helps. i assume you know how to gif using photoshop so i’ll quickly go over what i do. not really a tutorial, just some tips lol. i always use 1080p or 720p videos wherever possible. also when you import video to frames, make sure “limit to every 2 frames” is unchecked:
Can i ask how you colored this or what psd you used /post/158237711172/make-me-choose-maddieoblique-asked-a-stele-or
I always use my own psds and i kinda colored each gif separately because each scene is very different and i didn’t save any of the psds because photoshop crashed :(
but how i color is pretty basic: i always start with some curves or brightness, then i add a
selective color layer and i change the blacks, increasing black to +4 or +5 and then i add some saturation (helpful if you’re coloring poc to avoid whitewashing). Then I just play with selective color, color balance and curves and i usually finish with some levels (making it darker).
i remade two gifs (they don’t look exactly the same) and i uploaded the psds.
