using the same pictures to make an edit


i’m still not over dan’s camo shirt…

hi, i'm just starting a studyblr (going back to school tomorrow and need motivation) and i was wondering if you have any tips for taking photos? yours are just so nice all the time.

Hi! Thank you so much, that’s a big compliment!!

Okay, a few tips:

- get a good lighting!!! - natural is the best but I’ve taken a few pics with a lamp and it worked okay. All of these pictures were taken at night under the light of several lamps :D  (still, natural light is better :D) you just need to edit it heavily and set the light properly - basically there’s more work with it and it does not always work out

- take several pictures from different angels - I usually take about 10-15 pics of the same spread with different props and angles and choose the best one afterwards!

- EDITING - this makes my pics ten times better. When I edit the pics for my instagram (and then usually post them here) I use the Snapseed app to lighten it up and then do some finishing touches in the insta app. Snapseed is good because it has these exposure&saturation brushes that are just GOLD because you can lighten just a certain part of the picture, maybe an annoying shadow or sth.

Here’s an example of my photos before and after editing:

I edit them quite heavily hehe :D esp. when there’s white background

This one was taken during a gloomy day and there’s this noise that I can’t get rid of - see, good lighting is vital :’)

How do I make an instagram edit like this one below?

I tried to make this as simple as I could so you can make a ig edit even if you’ve never touched photoshop before. You’re gonna need photoshop some patience and follow my steps. I will explain everything under the cut:

I know this will sound kinda weird but how do you do your sims noses? They look so perfect and smooth. Im really bad at fitting the nose to the face. I hope you understand this and so sorry for my english! 😭

honestly, most of my edits (if not all of them!) use major liquifying


left is unedited & right is edited. (those aren’t the same picture, i just don’t have the original unedited picture of the left one)

i think it’s all in the editing really, i don’t think sims can look “smooth” because of the game’s graphics themselves so you just have to work some magic in photoshop to fix it!! as for fitting it into the face I have to say heighten their mouths, it works great & doesn’t make them look like they have a squidward nose.

anonymous asked:

hi, is it okay to ask what materials do you use for traditional art like watercolor,pencils,pens etc? and which type of camera do you use to take pictures of your drawings cause they look so high quality. Your art is amazing btw i really love them ♡♡♡

Thank you for asking anon!

I’ve been getting several asks about my traditional art material so I’ll try answering them in one post. Also I really enjoy talking and reviewing art tools so this post might get a little long o///o)9 💦 (please bear with me!)

  • About paper
    • for watercolor drawings I usually use
      • canson aquarelle watercolor paper 300gsm (blue left)
      • canson watercolor paper 200gsm (bottom)
      • and canson moulin du roy paper 300gsm(up).
    • Moulin du roy is my current favorite to use! It’s too pricey for me, but there was a huge discount in local art store and I just sort of…. bought it? [sweats nervously] It’s really really nice though! I got the hot-pressed one so it;s really smooth to draw on.

Unedited : Calum AU

Description: I feel like Calum’s been hella artistic lately so enjoy some quick photographer!Calum

Word Count: 985

A long shower greets you as you and Calum return from your evening ocean side walk. Calum, being the dedicated photographer that he is, couldn’t resist the particularly colorful sunset that painted tonight’s sky, and insisted that you join him on his quest to capture new material for his landscape portfolio. You obliged enthusiastically, always honored to watch Calum at work. He has such an eye for photogenic moments, many of them framed and hung around the walls of the home you two have enjoyed personalizing over the years. You never tire of walking into a room covered in his artistic talents, and you don’t think you ever will.

After your shower you expect to find Calum waiting for you, warming up the sheets of your bed, but he’s not there when you walk in. You dress in your favorite t-shirt of his and a comfortable pair of cheekies, then wander toward the only other room he might possibly be. It’s not much of a studio, just a bit of open space with a computer desk and a drafting table (because the boy can draw, too), with prints of his pictures yet to be suspended lined up around the floorboards. Sure enough, you find him sat at the desk, his opened laptop holding his complete attention.

The door isn’t closed all the way so you knock softly on the frame, letting your presence be known. With the turn of his head Calum peeks at you, a smile instantly running across his handsome face.

“Come ‘ere, angel,” he says as he leans back in his chair, offering his lap as a seat.

You take a few barefooted steps to meet him, hugging his neck as you sit. One of his strong arms wraps around your waist while the other allows him control of the wireless mouse. The laptop screen displays the pictures from earlier, different shades of yellow and orange being the primary sight. It really was a camera worthy sunset, and you can’t wait to see the masterpieces that Calum has turned it into.

“What do you think?” he asks, scrolling through edited and unedited versions of similar pictures. Flipping through all of them almost acts as a timeline, like you’re watching the sun set all over again.

“They’re really good,” you praise, painfully aware of your bland vocabulary. Calum is better with words as well, something you discovered in an apology letter he left you after one of your first serious fights.

He smiles again and gives your shoulder an innocent kiss, thanking you for the compliment.

“My favorite one’s coming up.”

You watch patiently as he continues to go from photo to photo, each shot somehow impressing you more than the last. It doesn’t take long for the one he was talking about to make its debut appearance, and your heart lurches when you see it.

It slipped your mind that there was a moment when Calum attempted to sneak you into frame while you weren’t paying attention. You thought you managed to catch on in time before he was able to accomplish a task that you’ve repeatedly told him you want to be no part of, but apparently that wasn’t the case. In front of you is a picture of yourself, a moment before you told Calum to stop pointing his camera at you. In it you’re seemingly reaching for the lens, on a mission to cover it with your palm, but your expression betrays you with a small smirk breaking free of its suppression. Instead of looking into the lens, your gaze is focused slightly above it where Calum’s eyes would be meeting yours. Your skin looks especially bronze as you stand in the direct path of the sun’s setting light, flattering your complexion into looking oddly flawless while highlighting the lighter shades of your hair.  

You lean forward as you’re introduced to the picture, baffled by your own face. You don’t usually like having your picture taken by someone else, Calum included, but this one is something close to a miracle.

“You edited this,” you declare, brushing his hand off of the wireless mouse so you can use it.

“Nope,” Calum says proudly.



“Well I look… weird.”

He curls his other arm around you now that he’s lost his rights to the mouse, takes your free hand in his, and raises it to his lips.

“You look like you’re in love with me,” he says.

His observation awakens the butterflies nesting in your stomach. Another glance at the picture gives you the same impression. The half-smiling face you’re making is one of not only annoyance but acceptance, two emotions that only Calum could make you feel simultaneously.  

“Huh,” you huff, leaning further into Calum’s body, “Camera must be broken.”

He laughs and squeezes you tighter, attacking your neck with take-it-back kisses. You swing your legs over his to make yourself more comfortable on his lap. He runs his fingers down the bare skin of your thigh, raising goosebumps in their path. His mouth gradually works its way toward yours, pressing multiple kisses to the lips he can never seem to get enough of.

The way every thought that doesn’t involve Calum disappears from your mind, leaving you lightheaded and consumed by him, is sufficient evidence to prove your little joke false. As you kiss him you’re reminded of the admiration you felt by the ocean while you witnessed him in action. You can clearly visualize the tip of his tongue protruding his teeth as he analyzes his surroundings for the best scenery, and the cute lines that crease near his right eye when he squints into the view finder. You adore all there is to adore about him: his commitment, his passion, his raw capability, and although you hate being made the subject of his artwork, you know damn well there’s nothing broken about that camera at all.

HOW?! Like I thought it was impossible for anyone to do that?!

Okay so I’ve been doing animations the hard, long, impractical way for always, and I go about this way;

Here we have the first picture, this is my base.

I then lower the capacity on that base and make a new layer and draw the next frame.
I go on with this until I reach a complete loop. I then go back and make adjustments, before I make each frame an individual saved image and try it out in an editing program where I put all the frames in as pictures and then play.
This was a 14 frame animation and if all layers were on at the same time it would look like this:

Aerick intensifies!!

Then I used gif maker to make it a nice hq gif and tadaa!

I'm new to the community- and I am in love with all of your posts! Do you have any advice for any new studyblrs? For example, things to write in bullet journals, stationery recommendations and tips? Xox

Hiya! I think there are a lot of masterposts on this sort of stuff, but I’ll tell you some of what I do :D

For New Studyblrs:

  • Post some original content! Take nice pictures of your notes and/or bullet journal. My advice for taking good photos is to make sure to take it under natural light, and then edit it by increasing the brightness and contrast. 
  • Reach out to other studyblrs! I think one of the best things about this community is that we’re all in the same age range: older middle schoolers thru university students. Most of us have a lot in common–and we’re all working really hard in school.
  • Use your studyblr to motivate you. I think everyone has really different reasons to start a studyblr, but I think many people really like looking at other people’s notes and bullet journals as inspiration! This is definitely the main reason I have a studyblr, and it makes me real happy. :)

In posting your own original content, it’s great to decorate your notes or bullet journal. For bullet journalling, it’s definitely better to chose utility over extravagance, but if you like decorating things, then I recommend including things like to-do lists, quotes, encouragement, habit trackers, lists, things you’re grateful for, goals, etc.

A lot of studyblrs have a lot of nice stationary. This is definitely not needed (!!!) but if you have them, use them! I like to use lots of washi tape, colorful pens (like muji pens and zebra mildliners) as well as stickers and memo pads.

Sorry this is so long and I do hope it helps! :D

manip tutorial.

hey guys so i’ve gotten a couple of messages about how i make my manips. the process is fairly simple but basic photoshop skills are required. i hope i did well in explaining how i do this. if not, feel free to message me with any questions or concerns. also, don’t expect to be a master at manips at your first shot of doing them. it takes time to really get a hang of it. heck, it took me a long while to get used to it. so, anyway, let’s get to it.

here’s an example:

My life in one picture

This is a parody picture of a scene from Mob Psycho 100 (see below for the reference picture) but with my sona. I was aiming for the same look, in case anyone was confused. 

Mob wants muscles.
Mana wants bellies.

I kinda wanna make one for Sam and she would either say “thighs” “butts” or “hips”.

Okay, as I’m a civilized individual, I’m going to control myself and keep calm, but lately it’s been difficult to, since it has become impossible to tak with other Naruto fans unless you two ship the same couples, otherwise you might end up shooting each other. But today I came here to talk about hypocrisy and the lack of originality I’ve been seeing around with one of the most disgusting fandoms in Naruto. 

 NaruHinas are always ready to go around claiming their canon and worshipping The Last as if it was Kishimoto’s work and I came to the conclusion that either they are really blind or are just pretending to be! I don’t even want to imagine these guys taking an text interpretation exam! So they consider this movie so true and as something that officially proves that “Naruto to have loved Hinata all along and was too stupid to realize”. 

 First lets take a look at the first picture, Hinata has a red camellia on her hair and Naruto has one on his roubes. Camellias, in flower language, is a compromise for facing each sacrifice in the name of love. Red camellia is the flame of the heart. 

 Okay, let’s stop here, and then you ask me what’s the matter and what’s so wrong about this picture? 

 The red camellia had already been attributed to SasuNaru on a callendar/official image in which both Sasuke and Naruto are back to back, surrounded by red camellias and holding one in their hands each. A flower that has been attributed to them YEARS before it was given to naruhina. 

 But Naruto is a shounen mangá, it has no yaoi. 

 Naruto is shounen? Say that to whoever did that picture and released as official, it wasn’t me. It was given to us and I find really sad they latter gave it to such a lame bondless couple - note that I don’t consider The Lastimate as official, since even on Naruto Gaiden, Kishimoto ignored the childhood memories Naruto supposedly had of Hinata, as she as “his first everything”.

 The second picture isn’t as close, I mean, Naruto and Hinata are close? Yes, but not the same way as Sasuke and Naruto on the other image, but as you can see, the atmostphere resembles quite a lot (dream like, both floating). 

 As if it wasn’t enough the gestures and objects representing Naruto and Sasuke, they copied the speech as well: 

 On the movie there’s some talk about bearing each other’s feelings untill death, what resembles obviously the chapters 485/486 in which Naruto says he bear Sasuke’s hate and die with him. 

 In other words: to make NH happen, they copied the SNS elements. And don’t even tell me it’s different just because they’re both men, let’s not be hypocrites, many of my male friends who don’t give a frick about yaoi admit the dynamic between Naruto and Sasuke goes far beyond mere friendship and brotherhood. If you think so, though, I’m gonna respect this. 

 “Pierrot, actually, made The Last movie replacing Sasuke with Hinata in every way: they made her a descendent of Kaguya (just like Sasuke and Naruto), made her as Naruto’s first friend, changed her chakra color from blue to purple (as is Sasuke’s), made them both using combined justu (like Naruto did with Sasuke at the war), used camellias on their wedding (as it was already used on an official SN picture) and, to close it with a blast, their first kiss was in front of the Moon. Who is the Moon? Hm.” - fan commentary.

 Want more? Here we go: On the storyboard, Sasuke and Naruto originaly would first meet with Sasuke saving Naruto from bullies and Naruto would look at him blushing thinking to himself “how cool!” (or “how strong!”). 

 "I’ve seen a storyboard in which Kishimoto shows this. Naruto was initially going to be a Sasuke’s fanboy from the beginning, instead of having him as a rival right away, but the editors figured it would be better have them as rivals. Okay, but then Kishimoto fixed this his own way, eh? Because latter on they both admit that they have been secretly admiring each other since they’re kids and, just for the lols, right on their first ever “rival moment” it happens the kiss. In other words: SasukexNaruto was something (platonic or not) planned since the very beginning. It’s just a shame that the editors are using their dynamic to make NaruHina happen. I imagine they must be doing this to “cover up” the SNS and preserve the series without risk of losing readers.“ - fan commentary.

At the beginning of The Last, but also during flashbacks, the same thing happens: Naruto saves Hinata from bullies! What a coincidence, right? Very funny, that’s how she fell in love.

I wanna compliment NH for the originality on which they were made. They’re faker than genjutsu. 

- The camellia picture has an official logo on the right corner; 

- No seal, ‘cause I wasn’t the one who made the montages; 

- Another shitty copy from the NH fandom, a badly edited version of the official cover of a chapter in which Naruto and Sasuke are using necklaces with each other’s face to be a NH/SS fanart.

what’s a studyblr?

  • study + tumblr = studyblr! it’s for anyone wanting to do better, looking for motivation, studying and learning. 
  • we’re like the ravenclaw common room huhu
  • some variants are appblrs (blogs focusing on college applications), medblrs (medical studyblrs), etc etc.


  • you could try making a post saying that you’re new! it’s a good way of introducing yourself
  • don’t be afraid of sending messages to other studyblrs and just starting up a conversation (pls we all love getting messages).
  • be nice to your followers and to other bloggers! (no hate/rudeness ;;)
  • tag your posts with #studyblr or #studyspo !! 
  • you can also look through those tags and reblog some stuff

making friends

  • send nice messages! with the new im system, it’s a lot easier to have conversations with people now! (don’t worry we won’t bite pls pls we love getting messages talk to me if u want to)
  • if someone that you’re following reblogs an ask game or something like that, send them a message! you could find out a mutual interest or something!
  • join a community page! you can meet lots of other people and find blogs that are studying the same classes as you :)
  • join a study group. there are many study groups set up by studyblrs. for example, you could join one focusing on biology if you’re taking that class this year. you could meet lots of new people that way!

helpful things

  • having a blog theme that’s clean and easy to navigate is really nice. 
  • you can make a tag list for people who want to look through your blog for resources!
  • making an about is helpful bc people can get to know you!!
  • natural lighting usually makes pictures 100x nicer
  • many people use vscocam to edit things like brightness
  • some studyblrs track tags. for example, i track the tag #tbhstudying and reblog stuff that people have tagged it with
  • don’t worry; you don’t have to be perfect :’)


  • pls pls pls don’t feel like you have to have all of the expensive stationery that you see in posts with a lot notes.
  • don’t let age restrict you!! i started my studyblr when i was a smol 8th grader ; u ;
  • don’t force yourself to do all of the mind maps and illustrated notes that you see a lot in the studyblr community. if you find out that it doesn’t work for you. use the method that fits you.
  • don’t focus on followers. it’s about the wish to get better through your own efforts; not the amount of followers you have
  • don’t repost pictures. always try to reblog from the original. this goes for the pictures that you find on places like weheartit or stealing credit for other people’s posts and articles and masterposts. nobody likes it ;;

welcome to the community !!
hope this helped and good luck! if you’d like to request a post, go here and if you’d like to see more helpful posts, go here!! thanks :)

anonymous asked:

hi, your edits are amazing! ive just started to try and make edits, is it okay if i use your photosets as a template (just for the pixel sizes)? thank you!

As long as you don’t start to use the same outline with the same fonts I don’t mind at all. If you need the pixel sizes it’s 540 x 510 (one picture is 270 x 170).
