well this looked better in photoshop

2

HEY who wants shitty cell phone progress photos? Well here they are anyway. Mainly because I’m excited about it. >v>; I had’t put all the pieces together till today so I’m happy that it’s looking good! The knees (for now) work, but they’re annoying to put on so I didn’t bother for now. Photoshopped in the tattoo cause why not, and I’m not about to waste one of the real ones on a dress rehearsal. I’ll get better photos at the actual con and/or when the bow is done. This is probably 99% complete with time to spare to help my friend do his Mercy.

Also, yes, I added the D.Va selfie pose cause it occurred to me that maybe the first time I show my actual face around here I shouldn’t look like I want to murder the world. >_>;

na jaemin; a conspiracy theory

if you have been following NCT/ NCT DREAM long enough, you may remember Na Jaemin, the 7th Member of NCT Dream. He debuted with NCT Dream in Chewing Gum. I know because I remember. I remember he was in the music video, was there for promotions, and his teaser photos, etc. But now, there has been no pictures or mentions of him since. He was not present in their last comeback. It’s almost like SM has been trying to erase all existence of him. So that’s my theory. If you search up a picture of nct dream during the chewing gum era, you’ll surely see a photo of nct dream, but with 6 members instead of 7. (see it under the cut)

do you see how there’s an odd empty space beside mark? that’s because jaemin is supposed to be there. if there were exactly six members, there would be two rows of three. or four on the bottom, two on top. as you can see there are two on top, but it is disproportionate. mark and donghyuck should be closer to the center. it would be perfect if someone aka jaemin was on the right side of mark. but instead there is a strange empty space. also notice how badly photoshopped this photo is, look at jisung and renjun’s shoulders. sm should’ve done a better job if they have something to hide, smh.. 

for my second piece of evidence i have a picture from one of nct’s videos on v app.

notice there are pictures of nct dream on the lockers. what era are they from? that’s right, chewing gum. jaemin is a member of nct dream, but they failed to put a picture of him up as well. where even is he? who knows. but ever since chewing gum, there has been no signs of jaemin’s existence.

my next piece of evidence is dm’s i sent. 

here is a dm i sent to nct dream’s instagram. it’s in my belief that one of the members saw it and replied. if jaemin was there/ a member of nct dream this response would be weird. but “who’s that” as a response is just fishy

i sent another dm to sm’s twitter

THEY BLOCKED ME. I don’t see how my question would be an issue if they weren’t trying to get rid of Jaemin…

now this is also weird. if you remember, nct dream debuted with SEVEN members. but the members have mentioned that there are SIX. Isn’t that weird?

“6 of us started”? but they debuted with 7…

again, but with Donghyuck.

hmmmm…

And here are other things NCT members have said…

isn’t it strange? Now, I am including a picture of Jaemin below. If you cannot see him then it is already too late…SM has already erased all remaning evidence of Na Jaemin. All is left is our memories. but be careful, we may lose that too…

thank you for reading my conspiracy theory. i hope we can raise awareness about this situation.

I can’t believe you beat me to it

Just some heart warming stuff for you nerds! I had some dialog planned but i thought it would go better without words. I also wont be posting as much comics after this because im starting school tomorrow. kill me quick

EXO | When Their GF is Shipped With Another Member

Anonymous said:

Can you please do the request “When Their GF is Shipped With Another Member” for EXO? thanks<3


Preface:
You work at SM and after your relationship was outed they were asked questions about you and after that because of how they described you or what questions they had answered or even your clothing style in pictures when you had been caught together out and about fans had began to ship you when another member *Yes the same preface for the Got7 one*

Xiumin/Minseok:
Recently after the interview where Minseok was asked about you people had been starting to ship you with Jongdae; and though he wasn’t really one to get jealous…annoyance would start to arise.

“Yeah…hi guys, remember me? Y/N is dating me not him.”

Suho/Junmyeon:
“OOOOOOOOOH THIS IS NOT WORKING FOR ME.”

Though he probably wouldn’t be completely concerned by the fact that you were being shipped with Sehun after a while of hashtags and even fan art of you two he would begin to let the stress get to him.

“Are you okay?” you questioned.

“My brain is going to explode with all these…OH MY GOD WHO WROTE A SMUT FANFIC OF YOU TWO?”

Lay/Yixing:
“What’s with the face?” you questioned as you saw Yixing making faces at his phone.

“The fans found your Instagram and they’ve been commenting on the photos that you’re makeup is always…’on fleek’,” he replied.

“So why are you making a face like you smelled something horrible?” you asked, crossing your arms.

“Because they’re also saying that you should date someone fashionably fierce like Tao….I can be fierce to,” he said before trying to be a fierce face.

“So fierce honey….so fierce.”

Baekhyun:
He’s most likely to make a joke out of the whole situation when you start getting shipped with Jongin.

“Hey Y/N, here comes your boyfriend,” Baek joked, as Jongin walked into the living room of the dorm.

“It’s not that funny, Baek….” you said.

“It kinda is actually,” he said, “Look…look…look at this photoshopped picture.”

Chen/Jongdae:
Jongdae is also likely to make jokes to try and lighten the mood of the situation. “Well at least it’s Minseok….”

“What do you mean ‘at least it’s Minseok’?” you questioned.

“He’s the only acceptable choice for you to be shipped with besides me…anyone else and I might have to start questioning people.”

Chanyeol:
This cinnamon bun might get a little self conscious at the fact that you were being shipped with Kris. He might start internally questioning why the fans might think you two would look better together and start to over think the situation.

“Channie, I got food, are you hungry?” you asked, walking into your apartment only to receive no response, “Channie?”

“Hmm?” he questioned, staring at his phone with a pained look on his face.

“Would you give me that,” you said as you took his phone away from him, “Now you listen to me Park Chanyeol, I don’t care what the fans say…the only man I love and have ever truly loved is you and no fan based shipping is going to change that, got it?”

He looked at you a small frown still on his face. “I love you too…and I got it.”

D.O.:
He was actually trying to answer fan questions on live TV when he first saw anything about you being shipped with Yixing. “D.O. what do you think about the recent outbreak of hashtags #Y/N&Lay?”

He froze, the smile disappearing from his face. What did he think about it? He didn’t know what to think about it, this was the first time he was actually hearing about it. But he was definitely going to be doing some digging later.

“I find it rather amusing actually….” he started, trying to come up with a lie.

Kai/Jongin:
“They shipped you with Luhan?” Jongin questioned, when you warned him that after his interview the fans had let their imaginations run wild.

“Yeah…for some reason they think I would look good with Luhan and I just wanted to warn you that-” 

“This is not…that…no….you would not look good with Luhan,” he said, giving a disgusted look.

Even the squad disagrees with the ship

Sehun:
“What??” he questioned.

“Did you know that I was shipped with Baek?” you questioned.

“You most certainly are not shipped with him,” he said before taking your phone from your hands, “Let me see that….#Y/N&Baekhyun, what in the world? Seriously, someone came up with fan art in less than five hours?”

“Can I have my phone back?” you questioned.

“Someone just tweeted that they found your instagram and you have ‘amazingly cute photos of you and the other members of EXO at the beach SQUEAL you should see her and Baek.’“

“Would you give me my phone,” you said snatching it back, “At least they don’t have access to my private photos.”

“You kept those?” he questioned.

“Of course…I have my own ship to worry about.”

Originally posted by chensoomyun

Luhan:
He would probably find the whole thing of you being shipped with Suho weird and he would try and over think it. “But he’s like the mom of the group….how does that even happen when I’m me…”

“It’s just the fans being the fans,” you replied.

“But….” he started.

“Let it go Luhan.”

Originally posted by parkchny

Kris:
If you were shipped with anyone but him he would probably be annoyed about it and you would hear about it. “I go on TV, they ask about the person I’ve been seen with, I tell them that it’s my girlfriend and we’ve been dating for a year and we’re in a happy and stable relationship and next thing I know she’s being shipped with half the members.”

“Are you still-”

“Like how in the world did you manage to get shipped with Tao????” he questioned.

“Hard work and perseverance,” you said, starting to get annoyed that you were going to be late to dinner due to his griping.

“…………….Now I can understand you getting shipped with Sehun with your sassy ass….”

“Oh my god, can we go to dinner!”

Originally posted by yourejustmystylee

Tao: 

Seeing or hearing about the fact that you were shipped with Chanyeol would probably annoy him because he would’ve have talked about how close you two were in the recent interview.

“I don’t really know how to express my potato….” he said after reading the comments on twitter.

“Um…babe I think you meant-”

“I know what I meant and I meant what I said!”

How to sharpen gifs

When I learned how to make gifs, I could not find a single damn tutorial that helped me to sharpen them. Most of them assumed I knew what to do or where things were and I never did. 

So when I offered to help a friend with it, I thought it was easier to make a post about it. I hope you enjoy!

Hi! I'm new (like I just started following you) to this blog and your comic blog and I noticed you seem to draw traditionally then scan it to make it digital. I was wondering how you do that (I draw traditionally and was a bit curious on if I can do digital via some app but I don't know the first thing when it comes to doing anything digital or programs or stuff. Oh gosh, I'm rambling. Sorry about my stupid rambles)

Hello! Thanks for the follow ❤️

The bulk of my work is traditional, which I scan in and edit/cleanup before posting. Whether it’s a painting, sketch, ink, whatever. If you feel ready to invest in a scanner (which is a next step you might be thinking about!) I really recommend doing a lot of research on people’s (especially artist’s) scanner reviews to pick the best choice for your price range. Most household printers also have a built in scanner and they’re usually not bad. Growing up, I used the scanner built into my parent’s epson printer and while it wasn’t five star quality, I never had a problem with it. I even got my own and used it in college.

Currently I use a Canon Pixma scanner. It maxes out at scanning 600 dpi (bummer, i prefer 800) BUT it’s very thin, lightweight, and CRYSTAL clear. I mean it will scan even a painting’s paper texture with beautiful quality. Absolutely excellent for the price. I chose it after reading other artist’s reviews. 

Generally, just a side note, scanners will max out at a scan size of about 9″x12″. You’ll be hard pressed to find a scanner that can scan larger than that and if you do, it will cost a fortune. 

But you’re also going to want to edit your scans digitally. Raw scans look gross, no matter how elite your scanner. 

I talk a little more about editing scans here! Also, I recently showed and discussed how I edit scans of my webcomic @cooncomic in my latest Patreon-exclusve video

Picking a digital program to edit (and/or create with) is a whole different horse! It might take some exploring on your part to find what you like best. If you’re just wanting to clean up your scans, a cheap or possibly free program should do it. I still use Pixelmator, a cheap app on my mac, to do a lot of basic scan editing just because it’s such a quick, lightweight software. But it doesn’t do so well with heavier files, so I also use Clip Studio Paint for edits and draw-overs. CSP is also the program I do all my digital illustrations and animations in and it makes digital comics a BREEZE to set up with panels, margins, bleeds. It’s an absolutely excellent program, a better bargain than photoshop too, though PS remains an industry standard. After my hard drive crashed, I didn’t bother getting PS again and I haven’t missed it at all. Sai and Corel Painter may also be worth looking into. Though I don’t have personal experience with those two, I hear good things about them. 

We’re lucky to live in an age of internet reviews being at our fingertips. Do lots of googling to find out which tools will be the best fit for you artistically and financially. YouTube reviews are also helpful! And definitely ask other artists their opinions. Good luck!

Hi! I'm just dropping in to say that I love your voltron gifs! And I was wondering which sharpening settings you use for them? You don't have to answer if you don't want~ Hope you have a nice day! <3

Hey there! Thank you for dropping by with this nice message <3

So since a few people have asked before, I decided to make this post a very short rundown of the sharpening process I usually do! Sorry if any of this is confusing, I tried my best to explain it but if you’re still unsure about something, feel free to DM me for more questions if you’d like!

Sharpening Gifs using Surface Blur + Smart Sharpen

Basically, my sharpening process always involves surface blur and smart sharpen. I’ll show with screenshots the settings I usually pick, but I’m going to assume you already know the first steps of gifmaking so I’m going to skip ahead!

Once you convert the frames to timeline, then convert them to Smart Filters, I usually start with the Surface Blurs. (here’s a screenshot in case you’ve never used it before)

Usually, I do 3 surface blur filters, then 2 smart sharpens in a row, in that order. Each filter I put on, I use progressively lowered settings, like so:

I start with radius at 15, threshold at 8, then lower it a bit with each surface blur.

Next, I go through the Smart Sharpen filter (which is under the Sharpen tab as seen in the first screenshot above). This, I also do with progressively lowered settings, like so:

Only 2 Smart Sharpens though, because I find that over-sharpening doesn’t look so good.

Of course, feel free to play with any of the above settings as you will and see what looks best for you! These are just the standard I pick for myself personally.

THEN I do this other little trick I found. See the filters lined up here?

I right click each one and change the setting to Darken.

I do this for each one. All of them are under the Darken blending option. Once in a while, I experiment and change one of the filters to Soft Light, because it sometimes looks nice depending on the scene I’m gifing.


Again, feel free to play around with all of them though! Lots of options to try out. I heard some people only use one surface blur filter, then just a normal blur layer, and then one smart sharpen. There are lots of ways to play with this. You can also use “darken” on all of them, or just a few of them.

And.. that’s basically it! I think it makes a huge difference and I really love how it looks personally, so I do it all the time. :)

Other tips with gifs + coloring

Just a random piece of advice that I feel has helped me: A gif, no matter how big it is and despite the new 3MB limit, can only hold up to 256 colors. This is why some gifs look grainy even though you feel like you’ve gotten it to the point of being what you feel is the highest quality gif it could possibly be. So to help make it look even better, I personally find that singling out a few key colors and then desaturating the other ones individually through hue/saturation filter, makes an immense difference in the end result. Black/white Gradient Maps help a lot as well!

(Also, I used this video for reference when I first started)

So there you have it. These are the basics of my gifing process. After trying a bunch of different coloring options, I now like to keep it fairly simple when I’m just doing a normal gif/gifset. No need to get too complicated! :)

Hope this helps!!

Do you know where I can find a free photoshop link

*READ THIS BEFORE YOU CHOOSE DOWNLOAD A FREE PHOTOSHOP LINK*

Ok so before I start posting links I just want to clarify that downloading Photoshop for free is somewhat a risk as I do not know if the link still works, has a vrius, is slow and ect. 

However, if you’re still interested, here are some tips to help prevent these things from happening:

  • I almost always suggest downloading from a Tumblr user.
  • Basically look at the post they made, look through their accounts, see if they seem legit or if they look like a random bot.
  • Look at the notes; how many notes as well as the replies/reblog comments that people say on the post where they give you the photoshop download link
  • Look at how long ago the posts were posted, chances are if it was too long ago the link may not work.
  • If the link directs you to a site that looks too weird, don’t trust it.
  • ALWAYS follow the intructions given to you by the user, or else your download may go wrong.
  • Make sure you download the correct type for your laptop; MAC, PC.

Ok so I looked up some links for you, keep in mind I myself am not sure if they work but these are the ones I would choose if necessary.

I suggest link 3 considering it seems very safe and easy :)

Link 1 : A masterpost i found. Post is 1 year old

Link 2: Photoshop CC which is the Photoshop program I use; post is 2 years old.

Link 3: This link is recent! It’s photocop cc 2017 and according to this post as well as this it should for sure work and it’s simple to install ;)

Link 4

Link 5: Another masterpost with help on how to download everything

If you have further questions DM me, or, the account that provided the link (for better answers considering they should know more than I do)

Now, by the time you download photoshop, you might not know how to use it! So if you ever have any questions as to where to find tutorials, what tools are best, how to make gifs, how to colour/edit nicely just send an ask and i can always provide links as well as my own tutorials :)

☆・゚: Massedit Icons :゚・☆

EDIT: hi you, thank you for visiting this tutorial. however, it is at least over a year old and i’ve explained how i make my icons nowadays. please check this ask out!

After my icon tutorial I want to introduce you to the action system from photoshop, which can be used to let photoshop edit your icons.
So actions is pretty much THE function to let you edit your icons (e.g. when there are new scenes of your character released or you made a border/watermark/new psd for them). Simplified Photoshop can record what you are doing and can reproduce it on other pictures. 

At first you have to open the actions window. You can find it under Window > actions or by pressing alt + f9 on windows // on mac options + f9

how did u make those fake eyelashes !! i have kijiko's but they look so crappy when i take screenshots and i cant find the right brush to redraw them >:(

well, i usually just look up eyelashes on google and then in advanced search set it to transparent. the ones i used for the clat edit were these ones but then on top of that i used a brush that just comes with photohop to blend them in more? and look better over. it’s called Round Blunt Medium Stiff 

that one :^)

I’m glad you enjoyed my Guts drawing! The app I used is Sketchbook by Autodesk.

I’ve tested a lot of apps as of late, and this one is by far my favorite!

The app is free to use, but I should mention you can purchase the full version for less than $5, and I 100% recommend it. The main difference between the two is the amount of brushes you can use, and in the full version you aren’t limited to just 3 layers. Because I’m using full, I should warn you may see some features on mine that aren’t on yours to begin with.

There’s amazing brush versatility; you can adjust individual brush opacity, flow, size, as well as line weight through how you angle your pen. The nice thing about that is I can better emulate my favorite brushes from both Photoshop and SAI.

This is my personal favorite brush to use. It feels like a real pencil, but with an airbrush quality. I’ve been using it a lot for character portraits.

Anyway, if you’ve been looking for the right drawing app for your iPad, I 100% suggest Sketchbook. I’m planning on trying out a few more, and if any of them capture my interest the same way, I’ll be sure to share!
