uses of a dotting tool

Retreat (Voltron Fic)

“Keith, retreat!” Shiro yelled as he dodged the oncoming army, he was clearing a way to Pidge’s lion.

“They have Lance!” Keith grunted and surged forward, trying to get through the swarms of bots but to no avail, there was just too many of them. 

“W-who has Lance?” Hunk’s worried voice comes from over the comms, he was outside the ship with yellow, helping the castle take down ships.

“I’m not sure! I can see him now but he’s unconscious and they’re taking him somewhere,” Keith yelled as he slashed his way through the army. “I can’t get to him.”

He was getting desperate now, swinging wildly as he ran in Lance’s direction. 

“Keith!” Shiro yelled but Keith didn’t stop to listen, he was close to Lance. The only problem was that the Galra carrying Lance was a few feet taller than Keith and he was already standing through the doorway. 

“Lance!!” Keith bellowed and lunged forward, trying to get to him before the door shut. A button was pushed and the door shut with a hiss. Keith banged into the wall with a loud thud, he yelled desperately while banging on the door.

“Keith, we have to go” Shiro yelled as he got to Keith’s side and protected him from being hit by the army that was closing in quickly. “now!”

“No!” Keith yelled and sliced at an incoming Galra, “Lance is still here,”

“If we don’t go now Lance won’t be the only one captured,” Shiro said and started making his way through the attacking army, Keith stayed next to the door and attacked it with his activated bayard. The door didn’t budge. 

“Pidge do you know where Lance is?” Keith yelled over the Comms and cleared some of the many enemy while he waited desperately for a reply. There was a moment of silence before Pidge answered.

“No, my signal’s being scrambled, we need to go back to the ship,” Pidge cursed and thudding was heard on the line, “We need to go, now, they’ve found me.”

A scuffle and Pidge’s quiet whoop was heard faintly by Keith before her line disconnected. Keith wanted to cry, they were going to have to leave Lance here. He cursed loudly and swung at a few bots before running through the crowd -slicing as he went- and making it to the Lion where Shiro and Pidge were, all puffed out.

The Galran army were closing in quick, even with how much they took down there was still hundreds left. They piled into the lion and Pidge quickly took off, taking a few of the enemies out in the process.

Mickey Mouse | Nailing It

“Oh boy!”  Who here loves absolutely anything Mickey Mouse related?  This Mickey silhouette design is so simple, yet so cute!  It’s perfect for both beginners looking for something easy and more practiced artists who want a design they can complete quickly.  Make sure you read to the bottom of the tutorial to see a second version of the look!

Materials:

1) Base Coat

2) Top Coat

3) White Nail Polish

4) Black Paint

5) End of a Large Paint Brush (an extra large dotting tool will work as well)

6) Medium Dotting Tool (the end of a smaller paintbrush or pen works as well)

Procedure:

1) Start by preparing your nails with a base coat.

2) Next, paint your nails with two layers of white polish.

3) Take the end of a paint brush (or an extra large dotting tool) and dip it into black paint.

4) Place a dot on the bottom corner of your nail.

5) Using a medium sized dotting tool (or a smaller paint brush), re-dip in the black paint.

6) Place two new dots directly above the first large dot.  Make sure these dots touch the large dot, but not each other, to create a Mickey Mouse silhouette.

7) Finish with a layer of top coat.

**ALTERNATIVE**

As an alternative, use this Mickey Mouse design as an accent nail to simple polka dots.  Make your polka dots nails red and white for a real Mickey-inspired look.

Barbara Weir | My Mother’s Country. 2008

“I paint my mother’s country, the land where we live, find and prepare our food. I paint the same old stories I heard as a child, only my personal style is different”

Weir pushes the boundaries of Aboriginal art, experimenting with different styles of painting including using traditional ochres found in the Utopia region of Central Australia. Using these styles Weir conveys her dreaming stories of Bush Berry, Grass Seed, Bush Yam, Bush Plum and Bush Banana to name a few each expressing her strong connection with her culture.

——————————————————————————————-

Australian aboriginal dot art comes from some of the oldest practices of the culture.  Dot art can tell a story, paint a geographical landscape, depict a family history and mob, be used for sacred practices, a tool to gain and spread knowledges, and more.

Aboriginal dot paintings have both an artistic and anthropological significance, and nowadays are an important form of expression as well as a substantial way to enact cultural continuance and aboriginal sovereignty and truths.

i love painting my nails!! and as with everything i love to do i started brainstorming ways to make it witchy ✨ 💅

  • colors colors colors!! color magick is so fun to do with glamours and it’s super easy with nail polish. paint your nails with colors which correspond to your intentions - you can make this even more fun by adding duochrome, glittery, or holographic polish and creating correspondences with those!
  • SIGILS on your NAILS!! draw a sigil using a clear polish or base coat and cover it with polish, or even draw one as a design over a color polish. there are soo many nail tools at your disposal to try out new sigil-making techniques - imagine a sigil created entirely using a nail-dotting tool, or by tracing watermarbled designs with a nail art brush!
  • charge your base coat and/or top coat with moonlight🌙 letting the energy of the moon empower you every day through your nails! you could do this with any of your polishes, but charging the base and top coat is especially important. since they sandwich any of your other polishes when applied to the nail, the energy can easily flow through to a color if u wish it to be so.
  • if u are a nail biter trying to quit, painting your nails with any color (even a clear coat!) and doing a lil ritual to help you stop can work wonders. consider making a sigil to quit nail biting and putting it on one of the nails you bite the most - it’ll serve as an effective reminder and also look cool asf!!
  • watermarble scrying. there are a billion tutorials out there and you can make some fantastic designs using the watermarbling technique, but try starting the process with a divinatory intent and scry into polish as it sits on the water. this may yield some interesting results divination-wise, and u can wear it on your nails afterwards!!  💕

White Dotticure

After cleaning, filing, and shaping the nails and applying a base coat:

  1. apply two thin coats of blue polish 
  2. using a big dotting tool and some white polish, make two big dots down the center of the nail, one at the tip and one at the base
  3. using a smaller dotting tool, make a row of dots going down the center of the nail (in between those two big ones)
  4. use the same small dotting tool to make two small dots on either size (horizontally) of the original two big ones (this is a total of 4 dots - one on either side of the dot at the base of the nail and one on either side of the dot at the tip of the nail)
  5. use the big dotting tool from step one to make two big dots on either side of the row of little dots (so basically two big dots in the empty space on the sides of the nails)
  6. apply a coat of your favorite top coat
Clouds | Nailing It

Today’s nail art tutorial is a simple design for nail art beginners.  Clouds are the perfect starting design as it only requires the use of two colours and a dotting tool.  If you don’t have a nail art dotting tool, using the back of a paintbrush or pen works just as well.  Use different sizes to create a variety of clouds.

Materials:

1) Base Coat

2) Top Coat

3) Light Blue Nail Polish

4) White Acrylic Paint

5) Large Dotting Tool (the end of a paintbrush or pen works as well)

Procedure:

1) Begin with a base coat on your nails.

2) Next, paint all of your nails with two coats of a light blue polish.

3) Dip your large dotting tool into white paint.

4) Place one dot anywhere on the nail.

5) Create a cloud shape by placing about four or five dots immediately next to and around the first dot.

6) Re-dip your dotting tool into the white paint and repeat steps 4 and 5 over the nail to create a cloud pattern.

7) Finish the look with a top coat.

anonymous asked:

How did you make the gif where it has all the members' names pointing to them?

you mean this one right?

i’m gonna assume you already know how to make a gif in general and are just asking about the text. oh, and this is on photoshop cs5. 

i just typed up each member’s name (U.S. 101 font) and placed it in the vicinity of where they were (well ok this took a few tries so that it didn’t look too crowded and busy), then i used the line tool and ellipse tool to connect lines and dots lmao. the nice thing is you can adjust the width of the line (1 px in this case). and you can make the lines as long or short as you want. if you want to keep the size of the dots consistent, simply duplicate the layer and move it to wherever you need it. you have to make sure this is above all the layers of the gif so it shows up right. this also took a few tries to make it look….varied and not too busy or blocking a member’s face or something. idk if there’s a more efficient way to do it but that’s what i did!

anonymous asked:

If you don't mind me asking, what textures do you use for your art? It looks really nice!

I use pastel textures and dots. I added a few to paint tool Sai as paper textures.

As I said, here are some details of the most artsy pages of my bullet journal with the stationery tools I used.

• moleskine soft cover dotted journal

• zebra mildliners

• faber castell brush markers

• muji 0.38 pens


Enjoy!

anonymous asked:

hey how do you have a clear background in phonto and can you share the paper for the “book style bujo” 😊

Hi!!

For the clear background, I used this iOS app called ‘Eraser’ to make a clear png file (completely transparent) and then used that as the background in Phonto then exported as a png.


As for the paper template, I made it myself:

   -Used an online ‘dot paper generator’ using this website

   -Used ‘pen’ tool to make middle fold line in Goodnotes app

   -Used grey highlighter tool to make a line for fold effect (I resized it to make it wider

   -Superimposed two more highlights on top of the initial to create 3d effect

I’ve already shared the paper templates, but here they are again:

Dot paper with margin Btw if you make your own you can change the colors of the dots and margin etc.
