why all the video clip is perfect

A Clip Studio Paint PSA (or, “WHY THE HELL CAN’T I CHANGE THE COLOR OF MY CUSTOM BRUSH!?”)

We love Clip, don’t we? Hell yes we love Clip, it’s the greatest.

Until you decide to start dinking around with maybe making some custom brushes for the first time and everything seems pretty straightforward and you get everything set exactly the way you want it and… and, uh… why won’t it change color? Why?? What have you done wrong??¿?

You poke on everything, literally hecking everything, trying to figure out WHY THE DAMN BRUSH STAYS BLACK NO MATTER WHAT, and no easy answers are forthcoming and you’re just about to cry. Which was MY damn life this morning and for way too long this evening. I was trying to make a brush to streamline some of the background stuff in a couple of panels of Red Sector A, and it was almost perfect except WHY COULDN’T I CHANGE THE DAMN COLOR

I gave up, asked Google, and found a video tutorial that answered that question, and while it’s a simple fix that will make loads of sense once you think about the kind of crazy stuff you can do with Clip brushes, it’s probably not what you would have thought.

That’s it. That’s the fix. All you gotta do is, make sure the layer “expression color” thing is set to “Gray.”

And then go on to set your image as a brush tip material and make your brush and that fixes your problem. You can now change your brush’s color like any other normal brush.

Now why the entire damn hell would they make you do that just to be able to change a brush’s color? Remember how I mentioned all the cool stuff Clip brushes can do, like spray rainbow-colored sparkles all over your artwork?

If your brush tip layer’s “Expression Color” is set to “color,” the brush will use your brush tip image as is. Meaning, if it’s a full color clipart of a turducken, it’s gonna spray full-color turduckens everywhere.

So there you go, simple but sanity-saving tip for newb brush makers.

You can agree or you can disagree, but the history video I think highlights the disconnect in narrative between what the new team wants to put forward and what the old team will go to the grave perpetuating.

@ificouldflymp3 brought up the fact that the video used for if I could fly during the first listen parties was a better video for history than the history video. That it is what this video should have been.

It has been my thinking for awhile now that new team had their hands all over those first listen parties; old team would rather burn at the stake than have that if I could fly video not only made and shown during those parties but STILL UP ON YOUTUBE. It showed plenty of fetus Larry, it showed all of the boys through the years using footage that had never been seen before.

There has been plenty of uproar, which is deserved IMHO though I’m not so angry about it as others, over the complete disregard given to Harry and Louis’ friendship when they were almost inseparable during those first few years. It is disrespectful because, as the song points out, they have a lot of history and that was blatantly ignored. Add to it the fact Simon was actually included at the beginning of the video when that was ABSOLUTELY not necessary (or anything to do with the point, thankyouverymuch) and the last scene being all of them saying goodbye as they not only walk away in silence but separately, and I’d say Ben Winston did a great job perpetuating what Simon et al have been saying since the summer.

I get why people are angry, but this is absolutely another video done by old team. Of course they aren’t going to change their tune now. Perfect got overlooked by a cancelled concert and Home being “leaked”. While I don’t want to say boycott the video because it was beautiful for what it was, perhaps we can show them what we wanted. Show them what the fandom loves. Perhaps we could pull all the incredible talent the fandom possesses and make fan art videos and compile our own clips for not just a Larry version of history, but a truly ot4/ot5 version of the history video. Let’s use our incredible power to maybe go out and once again show how powerful we are when we use our influence for good.

If you decide to make one, feel free to post it here and tag me. I’ll reblog. You can also mention me on Twitter (I am @susettebs on there) and I’ll retweet as well.

Let’s show them what we wanted the History video to be.

I am not pregnant, I am just happy. I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show. … I’m just enjoying life and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am! But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate. …We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect … why can’t we just be us?“

 We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful. And I’m talking about in magazines, advertisement[s] in regard to what’s sexy and what’s not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other. I think if we start there, we’ll see a difference.

Hello! I shall request again. XD Hmm. How about an Exo scenario. You are a foreign student traveling to South Korea. While on the plane, you begin to watch Exo videos because you are totally in love with them. You watch many videos, but then you see a live performance of Moonlight. You can't control yourself, and your eyes then become watery. (how can they be so FREAKIN perfect). The person next to you asks if your okay. AND IT HAPPENS TO BE NO OTHER THAN FREAKING LUHAN!! UR THE BESTEST! :D

I HOPE YOU LIKE IT OMFG SORRY IF IT SUCKS I’VE BEEN FEELING POOPY. Anyways yeah i stayed up late doing this so don’t punch me if it’s not good. Anticipate the ending bc theres a plot twist bc hey why not.

on a side note.

i really need to pee.

“Waaaaachaaa reaaaadinnnn’?” A voice next to me asked.

I turned to see who was the one asking the question, it was a child, he was at most maybe 10 years old.

“Ummm…nothing…just….nothing…"I responded as I put my phone down on my lap.

For the past half hour I’ve been sitting in the waiting area to get on a plane that headed to South Korea.

But why are you flying overseas you might ask?

Wellllp. Not tryna brag. .But i’m studying overseas…So I guess you should like…Ya know…Bow down to me…Just a suggestion.

And honestly for this being my first time flying and all, I’m DESPERATELY BORED. 

The only interesting thing that’s happened was seeing a fly land in an old lady’s head. So my best shot at having a decent conversation was this kid who had dried saliva on the corner of his mouth.

"If it wasnt anything.” the child paused raising an eyebrow at me. “then why where you staring at your screen for a long time?" 

wut a nosy ass

"Good point… .Do you really want to know?” I asked giving the boy a small smile.

The boy nodded his head and leaned closer as I motioned for him to get at a whispering distance.

I was reading smut.” I spoke softly.

The boy sat up straight and frowned at me. “What’s a smut?”

I bursted out laughing and the people surrounding me turned to see what was going on.

“What’s a smut??” The boy asked again, his voice getting louder.

I couldn’t stop laughing so the boy just walked away frustrated and sat somewhere away from me.

Somewhere really far away from me.

what a betch.

Maybe this is why I don’t have friends right??

Naaaaaaaah.

I was beginning to put my earplugs in when the flight attendant came onto the speaker.

"Ladies and Gentleman please present your tickets at the front so we can get you into your plane. Thank you.”

I grabbed my suitcases and my phone filled with smut and walked to the front.

Things really do happen fast. Don’t you think?

I mean a while ago I was working at a frieken KFC and now i’m going to South Korea to study? It’s really nerve wrecking.

So many things have happened before I got the opportunity to learn in a new country.

I got my first ticket for public urination, I punched my ex-boyfriend in the face AND he cried after I hit him, But the best part of my life was probably getting into Exo.

I was hitting my low point in life, I didn’t know what to do. . I felt so…lost. . I guess.

I was watching random music videos and I found some weird one filled with Asians, and I remember thinking what the fook.

who are these lesbians?

But now that I look back at it, i’m glad I stumbled upon them.

There perseverance was amazing and all the hard work they put into their shows, it basically inspired me to get my crap together.

And look where it’s got me.

I’m reading smut in public. ISN’T THAT GREAT?!?!?!

I made my way into the plane and sat next to the window.My hands fished out my phone from my purse and I sat there excitedly, so many fancams have been released today from Exo’s First Solo Concert.

And what better way to spend your ride then to watch Exo dance and sweat and hip thrust and have full make-out sessions with each other.

i mean wut.

A person sat next to me but I didn’t really bother to see who it was. It was my Exo Time and no one, i repeat, no one can interrupt me while I fangirl my way to Korea.

I felt really embarrassed because I kept on screaming each time I would see these fancams. I could almost swear the person sitting next to me was laughing at my reactions. BUT I DON’T CARE. IT’S FUDGING EXO.

E- X -O

My fingers clicked on the next fan cam and for the first time I had an out of body experience.

My lady was always my jam but when I saw the frieken video of them hip thrusting you best believe it looked like i needed a doctor because lord jesus I kept on screaming.

The guy sitting next to me kept turning his head to look at me, maybe he thought I escaped a crazy house. I dunno. 

The next fan cam I watched after that was Chen’s solo. And can I get. . can I get. . I repeat can I get a HALLELUJAH.  

ROCKSTAR FRIEKEN JONGDAE. WAO. CHEN. WAO. 

SERIOUSLY I’VE BEEN SPAZING TOO MUCH IN SO LITTLE TIME. WHY YOU DO THIS TOO ME EXO. WHY.

Hehe. Time for the next video.

The screen faded into a shot of D.O. and Baekhyun standing on stage while the rest of the members sat in chairs surrounding them.

Hmm. . I guess they finally surrendered to SatanSoo.

I’ve never seen the clip before so I continue to watch it.

The melody began playing and I recognized it instantly.

It was Moonlight. aka. Baby Making Music.

I felt my tears well up from all the feels. Honestly, i’m surprised that I didn’t start crying before. I turned up the volume and saw the performance.

And oh my gawd where they perfect. The way D.O.’s voice matched perfectly with Baekhyun, how OT9 did that sexay body wave, how they where wearing those really nice pants that emphasized Sehun’s bootay.

I cannot.

too.

many.

feels.

My tears started falling really fast, I had to keep on wiping my nose with the sleeve of my sweater. Before I knew it I started sobbing.

yes.

I began sobbing, like a big fat baby, but it’s just that. . they where too perf in this performance I just can’t.

sigh.

“Are you okay?” The person next to me asked with a heavy accent.

He dug out a packet of tissues from his suitcase and handed them too me.

“Thanks. .I’m okay. .” I responded as I wiped my tears.

I turned to see his face to give him a reassuring smile.

“Are you sure?” he asked his eyebrows furrowing.

His face..

He looks…

So…

Familiar…

Am…I . . Dead…

Is. . it …really…who I think it is…?

I cleared my throat and asked the question that would change my life forever. “What’s your name?”

“Name…? It’s Luhan.” he responded a small smile on his face.

no faken wei.

I’M SITTING IN A PLANE NEXT TO LUHAN. 

LUHAN

PRINCESS LULU

I KID YOU NOT DUDE THIS PRECIOUS MAN IS SO HANDSOME.

IT’S LIKE. HE HAS A HALO SURROUNDING HIS HEAD.

AND CAN I GET AN AMEN TO THOSE LIPS?

UNF.

“Oh. .Hi. .Nice to meet you…Luhan.” I answered back giving him one of my best smiles. My tears began welling up again and before I knew it I was crying again. Don’t judge me.

“Don’t cry.” Luhan whispered as he patted my back.

I nodded and wiped my tears for the 300th time.

Jesus he’s so pretty.

“I saw you at the waiting area.” he spoke trying to make small talk. “You where laughing really hard, it made me curious as to what you found so funny.”

A small smile crept onto my lips, “Really? Would you like to know?” I asked.

Luhan bobbed his head.

“I told a boy that I read smut.” I said as I began laughing.

“Really?!” Luhan said sitting up straight really fast, he looked at me with a bright smile.“I read it too!”

wait.

wut.
