well i try making a graphic

Oh by the way. To any followers who aren’t into SnK..... I’m really sorry. You’re going to have to suffer every Saturday until it’s over. My condolences.
how to create aesthetic graphics

(a tutorial by rihleymatthews) 

so, many people requested me a tutorial on these (x and x) graphics, and since they are not hard at all to create, i decided to try explaining to you guys how they come to life. 

WARNING: this is a long and detailed tutorial. Please keep in mind I tried to show all the tricks I normally use for these graphics, so some steps are optional or extra.

you’ll need: 

  • basic to medium photoshop knowledge (such as cropping, blending and shadowing)
  • a concept (a tv show, a character, something you can pick objects to represent them or their porsonality)
  • patience, a lot of patience.

Icon tutorial + feel free to use the icons

I’ve been asked by several people how I get the affiliate and network icons so sharp in some of my groups, so I decided to write a tutorial. (This will also work for your tumblr dash icon.) I’m using Photoshop cc for mac, but I’m not using the mac shortcuts here, so it should work for PC users as well.

This is pretty basic stuff, but it’s a wordy tutorial so that anyone with less photoshop experience should be able to follow along.

Christopher Nolan interview about Dunkirk in Premiere (translated by YFR3)

The popular filmmaker, inventor of crazy concepts, who reigns on global entertainment for ten years, is back. But this time, Nolan is naked : without his magic tricks or his theoretical scrolls. Farewell the world of dreams of Inception, the upside down editing of Memento or the black holes of Interstellar. Dunkirk tells the story of a handful of routed soldiers (Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles …) stuck on a beach, between the Channel’s gray and angry sea and the Germans who fire. A real, brutal, anxiety-provoking and authentic war film. Really ?

Naturally, as always with him, it’s a little more complicated than that … “I guarantee you there’s no SF,” he laughs, welcoming us into the editing room. For its hardcore fans who rewatch frame by frame the two available trailers, to see when the film can twist. No: “Dunkerque will be faithful to events, the reality of history and the reality of places. ”

Perhaps this is where the most “Nolanian” aspect of the project nests. Some people still wonder if, at the end of the dream of Inception, the spinning top continues or not to turn. The same is true for the Operation Dynamo (code name of the evacuation of May 1940). For some people, Dunkirk’s rescue was a victory (340,000 soldiers saved while Churchill was expected ten times less); For others, it was a terrible humiliation (“War is not won with evacuations,” declared the same Churchill). This is this weird episode of the phoney war that Nolan chose to tell through the fate of aviators, sailors, soldiers and civilians. A story full of ambiguity, ideal to play with the genre. There’s always been in this man a desire desire to refuse the constraints of narrative logic, to explode into a thousand pieces the linearity of storytelling. Whatever the genre he confronts, his cinema is based on an art of rhythm and editing that allows him to deploy his incredible immersive mechanics. And that’s what we witness when we get into the editing room at Warner Studios. We see Nolan at work. We see it deconstruct a plan, subtly modify a sound to boost an image and make it indelible (his sense of frame is intact), all with a virtuosity of a killer who knows as well mix formats (prologue mixing 70 mm and IMAX is a visual madness) that learn his job to the most experienced sound engineer. It is this moment that he chose to welcome us and lift the veil (In Premier exclusivity …) on Dunkirk.

PREMIERE : I was very surprised to see how accurate you were in sound mixing. Can you explain what you were doing? 

NOLAN: It’s pretty simple in reality. In the room, the editor on the left is dealing with the music of the film. The other on the right the sound effects.  And at this stage, we ensure the balance, the mix between these two flows. It’s a very subtle process, but when we add these two elements (music and effects), working on hundreds of sound details, we finally define the tone and cohesion of the film.

Tongue-Tied And Oh So Squeamish

Pairing: Gerard Way x Reader

Genre: Fluff

Summary: Request fic for @geeksandfreaks6713.  “Can you do either a frank or gerard imagine where the reader has a stutter?”

A/N: I’m so sorry it took me so long to finish this. T_T

The shopkeeper eyed you as you entered the comic book store, making you nervous. Normally, you shopped at the store on the other side of town. But, they didn’t have the specific issue you were looking for, so your search had brought you here.

You scanned the shelves, walking past the Marvel and D.C. sections. There were some great comic books, but not the one you were looking for.

Maybe they don’t have it,  you thought with a frown. I might have to order it online.

“Can I help you find something?” asked a voice behind you, and you jumped. It was the shopkeeper. He was a burly, intimidating man.

“Y-y-y–yes,” you stammered. “I’m l-l-l-looking f-for….”

“Geez,” the shopkeeper interrupted, rolling his eyes. “Can’t you talk normal?”

“S-s-s-sorry,” you mumbled as you stared down at the ground, cheeks burning. Your speech impediment was so embarrassing, and people could be so rude about it.

“Spit it out, kid,” the shopkeeper barked. “I ain’t got all day. What comic book do you want?”

“I w-w-w-want issue o-o-one of….”

“Of fucking what?” the shopkeeper snapped, and you flinched.

A man in a beanie, who had been browsing the horror comics, set down the volume he’d been thumbing through and walked over to you.

“Hey,” he said, glaring at the shopkeeper, “why are you yelling at this girl?”

“This fake geek girl can’t even talk,” the shopkeeper explained. “I’m trying to figure out what the hell she wants, but if it’s going to take her ten minutes to get a sentence out, I got better things to do.”

“Great customer service you got there, buddy,” the man said sarcastically. His tone became gentle as he turned to you.

“Hi,” he introduced, smiling softly. “My name’s Gerard. I’m a huge nerd, so I hang out here a lot. I pretty much know where everything is. So, if you want to tell me what you need, I promise I’ll help you better than this jerk could.”

anonymous asked:

Hello!! I'm officially done with Prime Earth after this week. Which title would you recommend for someone who's only focused on books with Dick as a main character before? Preferably New Earth & Batfam related :)

Yeahhh, it looks like the general consensus is that this week sucked for comics.

But alright. If you want something light, casual, happy, and easy to read, I’d recommend Li’l Gotham. It has a [Vol 1] and [Vol 2]. It’s affordable, very cute, and has a Batfamily focus.

Otherwise, my favorite era of comics is the Dick!Bat era. I think Dick had a solid couple years in the cowl, and his relationship with Damian is one of my favorites due to the dramatic character development Damian undergoes. I made [this trade guide], because it’s honestly pretty confusing figuring out how to collect runs. It’s definitely not intuitive to new readers, but you can purchase those trades in chronological order with some confidence. I already mentioned [The Black Mirror] in that post, but I really feel that it deserves to be mentioned again because it’s probably my favorite comic of all time. The story is so thoughtful and symbolic that I would consider it a literary masterpiece, which is not something I say about most comics.

Next, I’d recommend [The Batman Files], because I’ve actually bought it five times. It’s not a ‘comic book’ so much as it’s a personal scrapbook of Bruce Wayne’s life. I think it offers an invaluable insight into the Bat mythos, and I [ramble about it a lot here].

If you’re interested in Dick as Robin and Babs as Batgirl, we have [Robin: Year One and Batgirl: Year One]. One of my favorite comics of all time is [Teen Titans: Year One]. I’ve read it at least six times, but I definitely recommend it for its emphasis on Dick’s roots with the Titans since they’re like a family to him. We also have [Scarecrow: Year One], which features Dick as Robin. I want to be clear and say that I’m not recommending the Scarecrow story so much as I’m recommending this comic for its insight on Dick and Bruce’s relationship. Most Scarecrow fans that I know aren’t impressed with this origin story in terms of Jonathon Crane, but I feel the rest of the comic makes up for that (minus the womanizer angle) because I’m a biased Dick Grayson fan and it should be illegal for Bruce and Dick to be this cute. 

Let’s see, what can I throw at you next… The Nightwing Dixon run. Here’s [Vol 1] and here’s [Vol 2]. [Vol 3] will be out in January. [Vol 4] comes out in April. I really wish DC would release these faster, but unfortunately we’re stuck waiting. This era is where we see Dick gaining complete independence as Nightwing to protect his own city. It’s a story about his growth as a character, and it’s where you go if you want to see Dick as a police officer. (I said the Dick!Bat era was my favorite, but Officer Grayson actually holds my heart and soul.) This is where you go if you want to read about the DickBabs relationship, because Oracle features in this title frequently. What’s more, Tim Drake drops in every now and then, so you get some exposure to him and Dick being bros. Nightwing trades from the 90′s do exist, and I’d definitely recommend searching for them on Amazon or E-Bay if you’re impatient for the next volume. While you’re waiting for the other trades to get released, you can always check out [Nightwing: The Target]. Another random comic I want to recommend is [Birds of Prey #8] for Dick and Babs. That link goes to the kindle edition because the actual comic sells for over $40+ (which should give you an idea of how good it is).

The 1980′s isn’t for everyone, but I’m fond of New Teen Titans, and I think it’s a great era if you’re open to it. The Titans had a profound impact on Dick’s character growth, and Marv Wolfman is the co-creator of Nightwing. He’s one of the most influential writers of this character, hands down, and spent over a decade shaping Dick’s characterization. [Vol 1], [Vol 2], and [Vol 3] were recently reprinted. [Vol 4] comes out in January. This is where you go if you’re interested in the DickKory relationship. It’s also a title I’d recommend to people who were fans of the Teen Titans animated show, since that show was heavily based off of this era of comics.

I often talk about how Donna’s death had one of the greatest impacts on Dick’s life, and I do recommend this era for anyone who wants to see this play out. I think it’s nice if you read some NTT first in order to get exposure to Dick and Donna’s relationship as friends, but this isn’t required. You can start with [Graduation Day] and then move onto Outsiders [Vol 1], [Vol 2], [Vol 3], and [Vol 4], which are written by Judd Winick. Some highlights of this era are Dick and Roy’s relationship (definitely go here if you’re interested in that). This title is also strong in terms of LGBT and PoC representation. Anissa Pierce is a black, lesbian woman. Grace Choi is bisexual, a bad ass, and Asian-American. They end up living together, and I really think this title is underrated in terms of how progressive it is. Be aware that this title explores a lot of dark themes (tw for sex trafficking).

I’m going to move away from Dick Grayson now to highlight some other Batfamily members. [Lost Days] and [Under the Red Hood] offer a quick and easy introduction to Jason Todd, written by Judd Winick. Unfortunately, it’s harder finding the trades for Stephanie Brown and Cass Cain. Cass is getting her trade reprinted in January, starting with [Vol 1], but it’s a ways away. Until then, I’d recommend No Man’s Land, which is really the way to go for Cass anyway since it covers her first appearance. You can find [Vol 1], [Vol 2], [Vol 3], [Vol 4], and [Vol 5] here along with a nice introduction to Helena Bertinelli (For more Huntress, you can try [Huntress: Cry for Blood] and [Huntress: Year One]. Cry for Blood is more highly recommended for being in character, but it’s also more expensive). Oracle is another major focus in NML, as well as Bruce. Dick and Tim both make appearances too. If you find that collecting No Man’s Land in print form is too expensive or too much to read, then I’d like to direct your attention to Graphic Audio, where you can listen to the novelization of this story with voice actors for over 11 hours. [Part 1] is here and [Part 2] is here. I honestly cannot recommend this enough, because it’s an amazing experience to listen to. The voice actors are spot on (you will melt at Dick Grayson’s voice just because), and the music and sound effects are seamlessly integrated as well. If you have to spend your money on one thing on this list, I’d say this is your best investment, particularly if you’re looking for a story that involves the entire Batfamily. Moving on, I’d love to offer some Tim Drake stuff, but DC is lagging here. [Vol 1] of his Robin solo goes into reprint this November, and [Vol 2] comes out in March. This is also where you’d go to see Steph as Spoiler. Finaaaally, to draw this to a close, I want to offer another Bruce Wayne focused story. [Bruce Wayne – Murderer?] comes first, followed by Fugitive [Vol 1], [Vol 2], and [Vol 3]. Dick, Tim, Cass, Steph, and Babs all feature here.

-deep breath- Okay. So this definitely isn’t everything New Earth has to offer, but I feel like I hit a lot of the major stuff, especially from a Dick Grayson / Batfam centric viewpoint. I did my best to focus on stories that are affordable, well-written and easy to collect. <: I hope these characters devour your soul.

follow forever + moving

hello lovely people, i hope you’re all having a great day or night so far! i’m sorry for the lack of fancy edit for this post, but i’ll be sure to make one for my next one.

the reason why i’m making this follow forever and announcement post is because my tumblr seems to be having some issues and even though i’ve tried to reach out to the tumblr staff, i’ve got no reply so far and it’s been almost a week now… so i’ve decided to start over and make a new account, hence why the title says moving.

Hi there. You probably won't read this, but if you do I would really like some advice from such talented artist like you. I love drawing and honestly I'm not so very good at times. So when I get discouraged over details that I'm not getting well at in a drawing, what do you recommend I do? One day I wish to make my own graphic novel, but how can I become better at drawing if I get easily discouraged. Where do you find the motivation to draw so well? If you have any helpful advice, I'm all ears

Hello anon!  Even though I’m not able to reply to most of my Asks, I do read all of them and really appreciate when people send them.  <3 

Anyway, I get discouraged at times too, especially if I compare myself to others. But the first thing I try to remember is that instead of feeling like I’ll never be that good, I use their art as a learning tool instead and study what I like about it.  (Many artists also have tutorials and videos that are invaluable) 

Probably the most important thing is to just keep drawing.  Draw A LOT.  Studying art tutorials and books will help you learn new skills, but drawing is the only way you’ll actually improve. 

Do as many pictures as you can from start to finish.  Sketches and doodles help you improve too, but going all the way to a fully finished picture (whether black and white or fully colored) is how you’ll figure out a stable work flow. 

Have fun with your art.  If you’re not having fun you’re not going to want to do it.  Find something you LOVE to draw, something you’re really passionate about, whether it’s fan art from your favorite fandom, original characters, portraits, etc.  If you don’t love it, drawing will be harder than it should be.

Some people draw in silence, but me, I need music. On days when I’m sitting in front of the computer staring at Photoshop and not really feeling it, I turn on my go-to drawing playlist, try to blank out my mind, and just draw.  I have several types of drawing playlists, each designed to help me either get focused or get pumped!

Find something that helps inspire you and give you ideas, whether it’s books, fanfiction, movies, or squee-ing over your favorite headcanons with friends.  I’ve had conversations with people where I come out feeling like, “OMG I NEED TO DRAW THIS!”

Final note that may not apply to everyone but is still important to mention:  Take care of your mental health.  If there is something that is affecting your ability to function on a day-to-day basis, such as depression, anxiety disorder, etc. it may also affect your creativity.  Professionals are there to help you.  If you broke your leg, you would seek medical help.  If your brain is self sabotaging because of a chemical imbalance, you should also get medical help.  It may not be a quick fix, but it’s better than letting it fester and get worse.

I hope this helps, and good luck!!

What's it like doing art for living?

I came across a journal yesterday of this one artist who felt that she wasn’t recognized and people seems to ignore her works.

I just want to share my experience and may be it’ll help many of young artists who want to get into art in gaming industry decide if they want to be part of this in the future. This may not be true for many of you, it’s okay, I’m glad you found better path and become really successful. Many of you may already know this but there are some who don’t and this message is for them.

My art teachers, my parents, many professionals I like, they warned me.

Don’t become an artist.
Don’t study in art/illustration/painting.

Don’t get into art career.
Pick other jobs that pay more and is way more stable.

I didn’t believe them (of course lol). I was young and I loved drawing. Everyday, every hour, whenever I’m free (and not grinding or farming in the games I was currently playing) I draw, only draw. I wouldn’t know what else to do if not to draw, so I didn’t see myself doing anything else but art. I rejected everything else that I could possibly get into: programing, languages, business and histories, which, to me, those subjects became more like hobbies while I put all my skills into drawing. (Which as you can see, still not good enough but we’ll get to that in a bit of why it’s really important!)

I stopped paying attention to school which at that time was Graphic Design. Why?? Graphic Design is art, too! Well, when you mix super-simplified art with business, it became NOT FUN AT ALL to me. I wasn’t fortunate enough to have a family that support art career nor even getting into art school. So I paid more attention to my illustration career which started during my third year of university, making connections and trying to get as much exposure as possible. It worked for me since it led me to many other publishers and games I can work with and still work with, today. That sounds good enough, right? Why am I bringing up what my mentors said: “Don’t get into art career”? Well, Ever heard of “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” and many many other phases like that? Well it’s true for some people but most of the time IT’S NOT. Work is work, and when you have to do something you love to much not in the way you love, it becomes work.

My ‘first’ published piece back in 2011. I couldn’t even anatomy LOL Everyone gotta start somewhere.

What I’m saying is, if you wanna make loads, survive in this industry and really get out there. Here are some things you should take into consideration.

You have to be so good you become irreplaceable.

You have to be good enough for them to like your work and want them. You have to stand out of shit tons of artists out there! (And the number keeps increasing with all the new tools keep coming out, making everything easier.) You can’t just, “Oh! I like drawing everything this way so I’ll sell what I draw”. You have to keep developing and catering your skill towards what your client/publishers want or you can stick to drawing private commissions forever, unless, like I said, your work is so good, they stand out so much they want your arts. And not something like “My friends/people say ‘I’m good at drawing / I’m talented!’” What you can do is; Look at the professional artists who work in the industry, the really good one that makes you feel like crap. Yes, that one, instead of comparing yourself to that artist and feel shitty about yourself, set that person as a bar and work yourself up to that person. It’ll take years or may be forever. It’s normal. Not everyone of us were born art geniuses. People will always be better than you in someways, use that fact and keep working on your skill, but when you reach that level, set it even higher, and you’ll keep getting better. Once you think you’re good enough, that’s when you stop getting better,  DON’T STOP ‘cause if you wanna survive in this career and be well paid, there’s no 'Good Enough’. You can’t just start drawing today and expect yourself to be really good and hired by people. It takes time and skill and blood and tears to keep developing your skill or someone who’re better and cheaper will replace you.

2013 > 2016 rework for republished books. Yes, I was ashamed of my old works.

It takes connections and exposures to get the job you want.

Yes, it’s unlucky for us to not be born 40 years ago when all the big awesome companies/art-related career started. It takes more competition to be noticed. And what I mean exposure, it’s not posting it in DeviantArt and call it a day. You can’t simply treat this like 'drawing for attention’. You have to do free works, show yourself and ask for work. Build up a solid portfolio. And even with that, some artists with professional portfolio still had to apply to over 15 publishers to get a job! Some even have to apply to the same place over 3 times to be recognized! Nothing is easy and it’s just like many other jobs out there. But if you want to stick to private commissions or do freelance for the rest of your life, keep this in mind, there’s no healthy care and many other service working in a legit company can provide you. You have to save up and take care of yourself. All the tools/electricity/etc bills come out of your own pocket which is paid by how much you work per month instead of fixed monthly income, so you have to be really active and work! The good side of it is, you don’t have to travel to work (Which is one of the reasons why I stick to being freelance lol), you work with your own schedule which you have to be really responsible and disciplined yourself. So if you want a legit company work and you think your art can go somewhere, the next time you see some ass hat offers you to do free arts like all the memes out there but you’re a still no-name artist, take it and put that work into your portfolio with their company logo in it. Every bit counts, but not too many times, you gotta let them know you want to stop when they start taking advantage of your free art. Also, big big thing; Exposure =/= Fame. Majority of the publishers/company don’t care jack about your fame. They want PRODUCT you create, and you better be good at making it. If your art is good enough for their stuff and someone know you and is willing to back you up to your new clients. So ask yourself. Do you do art ‘cause you love art, or you love the fame from doing art. Fame from art don’t last forever, It comes and goes. I experienced it first hand and all I could say was, good ridden. Can’t let fame or your viewer dictates how you do art, the only voice that matters, is the ones who pay you.

How do I know if I can trust the people I work for?

It’s rarely a case that you won’t get paid, but if you’re unsure about the people who’re looking to hire you, remember that you don’t have to rush and reply right away. Take sometimes to check their company background, see the products they have released, ask someone in the industry that you know and trust.

What’s it actually like inside?

It’s all the same as many other works. If you’re only an illustrator, check mail, accept assignments (funny, I realize they don’t call it commission in the briefs though), finish them before deadline, rinse and repeat for every week. For freelance, you either get TOO MANY assignment per month or too less, but when you’re on demand, you can decide how many you want to accept and freely refuse too many assignments. When it’s too much, you gotta set up the schedule and make sure they are finished on time! Some publishers outsource most of their illustrator and have roster of freelancers, so when you apply to the publisher, they will include you in their roster and whenever they hand out the assignments that you can choose, it’ll be sent to people within their roster. Be fast, always check your email, and you’ll get to pick the assignment you like the most. If you’re actually working in the design team, you get to talk more with the game designer and mechanic folks to work on concepts instead of only illustration, which also helps a lot more when it comes to tuning your direction with the current project instead of following up with the results from the design team and try to understand what they have in their mind ‘cause the information you get from the assignment can only tell you much. Majority of the publishers I work with are actually really nice which is pretty common in gaming industry since they were gamers themselves and they are pretty laid back, so rarely would they ask for so much fixes. My work step would always be: Read the assignments and articles > Make bullet points of things I have to include in the illustration (sometimes provide by AD) > 1-3 sketches, b/w line arts with simple shadeห > Art Directors (sometimes with writers) pick the ones they like the most list down things I should change > follow the development guideline > send in almost finish pieces, in case anything else’s needed to be fixed/added > if they like it, finalize it, get paid, upload the art > Waste all the money I made in vidya games. All done within a day to a week depends on my mood and how fast the e-mail is replied. Also check with your publisher if you’re allowed to post your artworks publicly before the project is released but always assume that’s not the case to avoid leaking any future release information.

If it’s such a hassle, why do I stick to it?

HAH! GOOD QUESTION! I CAN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE BUT DRAW!!! j/k. Well. Tis come to the last thing I’m going to talk about. You gotta love what you do, even if it turns into work. Not love like “I love my hobby” or “I love to draw sometimes”. Drawing for me is at the point that I can’t live without. I didn’t practice drawing 1-2 drawing a week. When I was enjoying drawing more than I do nowadays (darn vidya games), I drew over 10 pictures a day. While I study in class, I draw. When I wait for something or have nothing to do, I draw. While I wait for a boss to spawn, I draw. While I talk on the phone, I draw. If I see anything I can write with even a drop of water or my finger and a surface, I draw… and always, try to draw something new. There are times that I would want to quit my job as illustrator to do something else like web-comics with more freedom but I kept going back to it even unconsciously and this is what keeps me going. I wouldn’t trade what I’m doing for anything else (unless I get paid millions a year, but even with that, I’ll still draw lol).

Hope it helps!

TL;DR - Git gud or git rekt. Read the bold and italic.

PS: My English sucks, deal with it. lol Will come fix typo later, Nitain extract alert!
PS2: Sorry, no comic update yet, I’m packed until early June. x__x; So much work!

Any tips for making gifs? Everytime I try to post my gifs to tumblr, tumblr kills the quality. Help!!!

Well some tips for high quality gifs, for one make sure the content your giffing from is high quality. If you’re downloading it make sure it says 1080p or 720p, those are usually the most HQ. Make sure the sizing is correct for gifs also, cause if they’re not a specific size tumblr screws with it and makes it all blurry. We posted a gif size graphic a few posts down so check that out and make sure it matches the sizes you’re doing! Also don’t over color or over sharpen, cause that always makes a gif look pretty bad. If you need some more help check out this helpful tutorial here! Have a nice day!

♡ [SHOP] LOVEs Closet | Fanmade NU’EST Merch
As a way to try and earn some money while I don’t have an income, I decided to open my own RedBubble shop dedicated wholly to creating NU’EST themed merchandise. “From the Moon, to the Stars” is my first work, with a few examples of what you can purchase showcased above. If you visit the shop, you can see the other items available with the same print, including a clock, mug, tumbler, and laptop accessories! 

Should these products sell well, I would love to make more graphic designs! I already have an idea for another lyric-themed piece. 

Emergency commission post😥

Hello, hello. Just a reminder that my commissions are open, I’m trying to make some money to eat and stuff (I don’t have a job anymore, and well, it’s hard, my grandma it’s sick, my sister is a minor and the money my mom gets it’s not enough). You can hit me up over ask or IM! Mostly I’m on mobile so I’ll delay a little bit in answer!

I can do backgrounds, codes, icons (not so many, 1000max.), any kind of graphics. And, for now my packages are closed, sorry!

If you don’t have money to commission or just don’t want a theme or idk, can you reblog this? It would help a lot, thank you so much!!

Hi everyone! My names Kayleigh, I’m 20 and I’m a Graphic Designer from England :) Im an Aries, ENFP, vegetarian who dropped out of uni studying Drama. I love going to open mic nights with my boyfriend and friends, fancy dress, drawing and interior design.

My weight loss journey has been ongoing since I was about 10. I have a medical condition which means I can often struggle to keep down food, most likely to do with a lax muscle at the top/bottom of my stomach, as a result I regurgitate a lot of my food. I was an overweight child and my dr told me to lose weight to alleviate some of the pressure on my stomach which I did but unfortunately it didn’t help my condition and to this day I am still having tests to try and find a treatment that works.

I used to have a fitblr when I was 16 which helped me lose about 40lbs. I gained a lot of my weight due to bullying and being unable to do much physical activity because I ruptured my ACL & tore my meniscus in my left knee when I was 14 which required surgery which I had when I was 16 (and then again at 18 when this ruptured again!) Its safe to say I know a thing or two about overcoming adversity!

Like a lot of people who struggled with weight, my relationship with food is complicated and made even worse by my stomach disease. I was bullied a lot growing up for not only being the fat kid but the kid who was sick in the corner of classrooms and was ‘too lazy’ to do P.E (When in fact my dr had signed me off P.E cause it was too dangerous with my knee) which lead me to comfort eat…then sick…then comfort eat more… in a vicious circle. I also developed depression & an anxiety disorder which i take medication for and am still battling today.

I don’t want to dwell on the negative,my CW is 153lbs and my UGW is 128lbs and I want to tone up too. I would like to reach this by my 21st in April but I’m not putting too much pressure on that goal I just want to be the best i can and enjoy a week with my friends, family & boyfriend. 

I can really sympathise with yo-yo dieting and becoming discouraged. I try and put my graphic design skills to good use and I make the odd motivational quote graphic as well as infographics and weight loss trackers, free for use by anyone!

I love speaking to people so feel free to message me any time you like! I’m nice I swear haha I just want to help people reach their goals and be the best version of themselves they can be as well as be inspired by them!

Using your brain to control your heart to control your penises

Sherlock introduces the stag night as an, ‘embarrassing’, story.  What exactly about the stag night was embarrassing?  Not getting excessively drunk: that’s par for the course.  So, what is Sherlock hinting at, here?  Something embarrassing happened at the stag night.

The story begins with his visit to Molly.  He shows her a file with a picture of Vitruvian man with John’s head pasted onto it: this explains his anxiety, he’s going drinking with the perfect man, he doesn’t want to lose control of his penis, in the closet.  From this we already see that Sherlock is apprehensive about losing control with John because of drinking.

Once they begin to drink John sees, and is annoyed by, Sherlock’s beakers of beer plus his phone.  It is obvious to him that Sherlock is going to attempt to control their drinking in with a bit of science,

So…  the phone symbolizes Sherlock’s heart via its association to Irene’s phone.  The beakers, long, cylindrical and filled with yellow liquid represent their penises.  The app, the graphs, Sherlock’s measurements are symbolize logic, his brain, his rational mind, Sherlock trying to control the events of the night with his brain.

So, basically we have Sherlock using his brain to control his heart to control their penises,

(The screen cap above, I think makes an allusion to John’s heart, as well.  The graphic of Sherlock’s stop watch disappears into John’s back.  The red rectangle on his left side.  Logic will control their hearts and their hearts will keep their penises in check.)

At the climax of Sherlock’s, 'system’, he is very well lit in blue light, a blue glow all over him,

 As soon as John rebels against Sherlock’s way of drinking we get the scene where John lets loose and starts drinking away from Sherlock’s control.  Here we see the clouds of the bisexual flag very clearly in the background: blue for opposite sex attraction, pink for same sex attraction and purple for its synthesis,

Once we have this explicit key we can look back at the colouration of the previous scenes and see the story that the colours tell.

The various bars that they go to all have varying degrees of these three colours.  To me, this shows that the whole night, they’ve been oscillating between getting close and getting far away.  Sherlock tries to keep things, 'blue’, AKA straight between them, this is especially clear right when he’s asking about John’s, 'maximum volume discharge’, ironically an incredibly sexual thing to ask.  This is right before John’s rejection of this repression.  This is Sherlock trying his hardest to be straight in this context, hence he is bathed in blue.  John, by contrast, is only faintly framed in blue, his face and body are not in blue, at all.

At the second bar we see, there is a very large phallic statue between them.  It casts two penis-shaped shadows: one tall and faint and one shorter and darker.  The latter also appears to be coming from John’s direction and pointing at Sherlock.  To me, this could represent John’s arousal vs Sherlock’s blue tinged, arousal.  Here John has pink light hitting his face and the shadow directly behind him is also pink.  Though the left side of JOhn’s face is blue (the side of the heart), the middle of his face is still pink and he has a symbolic boner behind him,  

At this club Sherlock shows his incredible and supposedly non-existent drinking prowess in a gesture I can only see as symbolic.  He polishes off that whole penis of beer and then does a mouth wipe surrounded by purple,

We cut to the next scene via this,

…a clear reference to Sherlock’s heart.
