Camila... Okay, if you wouldn't mind doing me a favour and go onto Youtube as you read this. search up your first glitchtale video, Megalomaniac. Quickly skim through your slightly-old animation, then go to your most recently made animation. See the difference? See how good you've gotten over the past year? Who cares if you can't do SUPER SUPER detailed stuff, It's ANIMATION! It's ART!! Most people can't do that at all! You're amazing, and always will be, and you can see how ur getting better!

Falsettos Characters as Quotes from John Mulaney
  • Whizzer: Hi, I'm very gay and would like a few dollars.
  • Marvin: I never knew relationships were supposed to make you feel better about yourself. That's not really a joke. That's just a little, sweet thing I like to say.
  • Jason: I am very small, and I have no money. So you can imagine the amount of stress I am under.
  • Mendel: I'm a very lucky person. I'm an idiot, and I've shoveled through life rather nicely so far, so I don't feel like I deserve good treatment.
  • Trina: It's nice when you're nervous and everybody's like, "Yeah, you should be nervous." Because a lot of times you're anxious and people say, "Relax. Shut up." And that just feels like, Well, I guess I'm also crazy.

I can get that stuff would be stressful. But I mean, I looked for a long time through the asks and saw a single rude comment. I have a lot of friends that are fans of you as well and I haven't heard anyone getting mad over people sending death threats. Which I think they would. And even if that's been happening, people being so immature about it, then why react like this? How is it proving that you're any better? I don't want to insult you man I just... this isn't a good way to deal with it.

I’m not that kind of person who likes to make dramas just by a silly and pointless thing.
And I’m not telling that I’m better than others. That’s immature.

Is not a good way to deal with it making a 15 minutes of video insulting people and crying and showing frustration and showing a bad impression of myself. That’s also immature.

I talked with Camila, she even supported me about doing that video…because…is just something funny! Also I even showed the video to the Storyshift creator (There was a little misunderstanding about using her AU, but we could solve that situation and it was cool)

If there’s people who doesn’t have any sense of humor or are really sensitive, I can’t change their point of view. But I can invite them to unfollow me and stop watching my content if that is really offensive for them.

I prefer taking those bad comments and suggestions with humor because I prefer make people laugh. Fortunately they don’t have to deal with all the pressure I’m having right now. 

Also, if I want to use another AU or character for the real project , I will contact with the creator. I’m not just taking a character because yes. Everything has a way to be when you’re using characters from other people and getting some money with them.

anonymous asked:

Are you alright? Lately it's seems like you're under a lot of pressure and stress, and I just hope there's some good in your life and that you're okay and taking care of yourself

It’s been pretty rough, that’s true. Right now I am leading a really unhealthy, stressful life. I don’t sleep enough, I don’t eat enough (I don’t even have real comfort food anymore. And that’s super shitty) and I don’t relax enough. But I think it’s getting better now. I try to take some time just for myself and do stuff I really enjoy. Without pressure and stress. It’s hard, because for some reason I end up stressing about everything, but then I remind myself that I don’t have to be stressed when I’m playing video games and that it’s okay if some things don’t work out for the first few times. 

I need to learn how to enjoy things like drawing again. I see myself only drawing for the sake of others lately and it frustrates me. I just hope after this semester it gets better. After that I can choose my major and then I go to illustration and I can finally do what I want. Bye bye product design!

anonymous asked:

Hi! I've been considering making some stickers/prints for myself and was wondering if you have any advice about how to go about it file-wise? I'm sort of at a loss what canvas sizes I should use for this kind of thing and what would be too small or too big to get decent quality when printing stickers and stuff. Please ignore if you consider this a sort of trade secret or you're not comfortable answering! Oh, and I hope you're feeling better!

This got long so I’ll put a break here!

SARAH VINE: “Here’s an article I most likely wrote on a laptop, emailed to my employer for them to print in their newspaper and feature on their website, all about why technology is bad. Oh and when they paid me for this it was probably by BACS transfer, which I could of course check by looking at my online banking account.”

Hi! This is kind of an odd ask but I hope it's not too much trouble. I've been wondering for a long time if this one horse I follow on instagram has a fab mane or just a really big crested neck. I'm trying to get better at conformation judging since it's super interesting. You're really good at this stuff so if it's not too much trouble could you please visit stallioncazurros instagram and have a look? Thank you! :)

i could not find the insta, but googling the horse I found this guy- 

if that is him, he does have a large crest but not just any large crest, he has a fallen crest which you don’t see to terribly often, unique looking animal though.

So, I've been looking through your tutorials, specifically the one on skin. I think it's great- it's really good and explains stuff really well (all your tutorials do :) ),but I was having some trouble understanding undertones. How do you identify somebody's undertones? I get it in the general sense, but how can you tell that it will be this shade of a color vs another shade? Thanks so much, you're a huge inspiration and your artwork gets better each time! -anna

Hi! I’m glad the tutorials are helpful!

So, at first glance, its not hard to estimate an undertoneBut it also really helps to use the colour picker  in the most saturated parts of the face (Neither in light or shadow) 

Especially in pictures like these try to avoid the contour area just around the outside edges of the apples of the cheeks incase the model is wearing a lot of blush. Any natural makeup such as foundation or bronzer is fine because it should match the natural colours of the face, unlike blush which is usually a different colour.

These are the colours I picked from the faces. (you can also just eyeball them)

You can use these as your base tones when you paint, but knowing the actual undertone can give the skin a more unified and continuous look. So take the colour you took from the photo and use the full colour adjuster/ picker thing to find the undertone (again, you can just eyeball it unless you want to be super precise).

Some of the colours you find may seem really different from the original image, that’s okay! The colour should represent the mood or the essence of the face, the undertone can be any colour imaginable and one person can have more than one undertone depending on the lighting or the mood you want the piece to have. Giving someone a green or blue undertone can make them look sick. Giving someone a orange or red undertone can make them look warm and inviting. Its up to you! Just having an undertone in your art can make a piece look more realistic and give your art a larger range of skin tones.

Once you do this enough times it becomes a lot easier to eyeball the undertones and make them up for original drawings and characters. Do whatever feels right!

I hope this helps!

How would Lucio react if he was in a meetup or his concert or smthng w/ his SO and few of his fans start to yell things at his SO. Stuff like "He deserves better!" "You're not good enough for him!" (Sorry I've been feeling worthless lately)

Ahh I’m sorry you’ve been feeling that way! ;^;)

  • Everyone would be enjoying the evening (prolly evening) as fans came and went fawning over him
  • S/O would be sitting quietly with him, conversing once in awhile when it required them to.
  • They just enjoyed spending time with him, especially seeing him ecstatic about meeting all his fans.
  • That’s when a couple of fans, probably some that couldn’t get into the autograph signing, start yelling things from the side.
  • “How come you get to sit there, (S/O’s name)?!” “Yeah, you’re not good enough for him!” “He deserves BETTER!” “You’re nothing compared to him!”
  • He’d be a little shocked to see such negativity coming from this happy event.
  • Security guards would drag the fans away from the crowd.
  • S/O would silently grin and bear it, not willing to talk about it since they don’t want to bring his mood down even more.
  • Just as he would try to address it with them, another fan would come up to the two.
  • “I am SO sorry about the way they were acting!! That is not what most of us feel, I promise! We’re all happy that you make him happy, and that’s all we could ever ask for. So, please don’t let them upset you? Bitterness and jealousy has blinded them, but I don’t think you should let their darkness ruin your night!”
  • He’d smile brightly, wrapping an arm around his S/O.
  • “She’s right. The happy words are more important than anything else. Besides all that, I still love you, okay?”
  • S/O would give a soft smile, wiping away tears that had slightly formed. “I love you too.”

Yoosung

  • So he’s been trying to get better about studying since you gave him motivation again, but it’s hard to force himself to focus without someone always on his back about it.
  • He asks around for tips at school from people he’s in class with and they all point him toward a popular blogger.
  • He doesn’t understand how that could help??? But whatever.
  • You’re really busy with your own studies so he doesn’t want to bother you with his questions; he knows that you take your time very seriously and thinks he needs to just let you be.
  • So he checks out this person’s blog, assuming it’s going to be a bust.
  • Oh boy, is he surprised when there’s a lot of very valid tips and lists of ways to help people focus that he can actually implement on his own.
  • It takes a little bit but with some practice and determination, he starts to see an improvement.
  • You’re so impressed - he’s turned so many of his habits around, so you ask where he got the ideas.
  • He excitedly flips on his computer and goes to the blog, chattering 100 miles a minute about what an absolute genius this person is and how he’d love to meet them to thank them personally.
  • Oh
  • You play along, nodding and smiling while quickly logging into your blog on your phone and making a quick blog post (to delete later, maybe?), asking him to refresh the page innocently.
  • [Hello Yoosung- you’re very welcome for all of the study tips! I’m so happy to see someone is benefiting from them other than myself. I’m proud of you, babe! 😘 ]
  • He whips around to stare at you in shock the boy is shook
  • You write this!?“
  • He throws his arms around you and starts peppering your face with kisses, repeating “thank you” over and over between them.
  • Also he’s super impressed with your writing ability and starts to brag to everyone at school that you’re his S/O

Zen

  • You take your laptop pretty much everywhere you go, and if you don’t have it, then you have a small notebook and at least a couple of pens in your bag.
  • You actually made sure to grab it when you ran from Rika’s apartment, despite the danger you were in.
  • Zen was a bit baffled by it then, but just shrugged it off as you had something important on there.
  • Well, he’s not wrong.
  • Eventually he asked about it and all you replied was “I’m a wannabe writer,” but you didn’t elaborate nor seem willing to, so he let it drop.
  • He comes home from a late rehearsal one night to find you passed out at your desk, head laying on one arm while the other arm was across the keyboard, a constant stream of letters flashing across the screen.
  • Chuckling to himself, he moves you gently to the bed, tucking you in and placing a soft kiss on your forehead.
  • He sits down at the desk then to delete the keysmash of epic proportions that you’d done after falling asleep actually kinda impressed by how many pages it was
  • When he finally gets back to what appears to be a more coherent word structure, he hovers over the save button before a sentence catches his eye.
  • Curiosity piqued, he scrolls back to the beginning of the document and starts to read the novel you’ve been pouring your heart and soul into.
  • A few paragraphs in and he’s hooked and perhaps reads through the night
  • When he finally ambles out for breakfast in the morning (you’re shocked that you woke before him), his eyes light up at the sight of you and he bounds over to give you a bear hug.
  • “Why didn’t you say you were an author!? Your book is amazing so far - I can’t wait to read more!” what
  • From then on out you have your first dedicated fan.

Jaehee

  • It isn’t something you talk about in the chat room, nor do you bring it up when you two start working to get the cafe ready.
  • She knows you disappear one night a week to meet up with some ‘club,’ but she never inquires what it’s about.
  • Then the day comes when you hand her a piece of paper with a simple poem written on it, professing your love for her.
  • She’s flustered by both your ability to write such beautiful poetry as well as by your confession.
  • You’re not looking at her, your face flaming in embarrassment because oh boy do you love this woman
  • And what if she doesn’t like it?
  • Or worse… what if she doesn’t like you?
  • Both fears are utter nonsense, of course, because she hangs the poem in a frame on the wall and also kisses you.
  • The feeling is mutual but she was scared to tell you.
  • Thank god you have the power of words on your side.
  • You continue to write her poems but she also wants to read your other writing.
  • Super supportive and also secretly jealous of your talent.

Jumin

  • He knows you’re a writer because you tell the RFA easily when asked what you do.
  • He also knows that you do a lot of research and occasional traveling for your books but logic says that’s a necessity for any kind of writing.
  • You invite a lot of distinguished people you’ve met through your career to the parties and it doesn’t faze him in the slightest to be talking with yet another person with their doctorate who is at the head of their field.
  • But he’s a bit caught off-guard when he overhears some of his employees talking about the books you’ve written.
  • You’re actually fairly well known in your area as an author who makes everything they write relevant and easily understandable while still educating.
  • “So you write school books?” No Jumin I’m not a member of the academic community
  • You just have something you find incredibly interesting and figured you may as well turn your slight obsession into a job and it worked out rather well.
  • C&R mysteriously branches out into the field you research in and suddenly you find yourself sponsored to do pretty much whatever you want.
  • “You could ask before assuming I need help, Jumin.”
  • “I’m well aware you have no need of my assistance, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to help you be even more successful. I’m so proud of you; please let me do this for you?”
  • He may or may not shove your accomplishments in his smug father’s face.

707

  • Oh, he knows.
  • He knows as soon as he does your background check.
  • Your tumblr, AO3 and ff.net all reveal your deepest darkest secrets.
  • He actually ends up reading a lot of it and holy hell? You’re amazing?
  • Like, you come up with some pretty original plot lines and keep anyone you write in character and it’s just really fun to read.
  • He feels it allows him a deeper look into your mind and also maybe your desires because he stumbles across all that smut you’ve read/written.
  • You wondered at first if he found out but when you start seeing “Defender-of-Justice” likes/reblogs/left kudos etc on your stuff, you know and you want to die of embarrassment.
  • When you’re together he likes to quote your own words at you, no matter how corny or out of context they are. jfc Saeyoung quit being so embarrassing
  • He likes to watch you write, and sometimes throws in his own ideas for your consideration… which are occasionally very good and other times really terrible.
  • Don’t quit your day job sir
  • He may draw some inspiration from the dirty things he’s seen on your account too but he’ll never admit it.

Hi there :) I'm curious how you go about studying and practicing anatomy. Since you're so talented and accurate, I figured I would ask. I've been struggling with it and so I'm curious if you have any tips/resources. Thanks for your time~

Hello!

First of all, I’m really not all that accurate! My process has always been “fake it til you make it” with a little bit of studying thrown in. I plan on doing more studying this summer so I can get better. (If you want to see an artist who really knows their stuff, check out extra-vertebrae)

Secondly! In my limited experience, the best way to get good at faking it and making it is to draw from life as much as possible, even if it’s tedious and you don’t like the outcome. You’ll find things you enjoy drawing and get good at them. Doing this helps you build up a sort of mental library of things you can use when drawing from imagination.

Here are two invaluable things for any artist:

1. Keep a sketchbook. Copy everything. Draw from life (not photos if at all possible, but photos will do in a pinch.)

If you see art you like, copy it. Don’t trace it. You will learn exactly zilch from tracing. Copy styles and characters that you like, because you might just learn a thing or two from that. My own sketchbook is full of attempts at trying another artist’s style, and it’s really pushed me to loosen up and try new things!

The thing about a sketchbook is that it’s not meant to be presentable. You don’t have to be original or neat or good in your sketchbook, because no one has to see it if you don’t want them to.

Here’s my sketchbook tag on tumblr

And here’s a complete PDF of one of my recent sketchbooks

2. Collect reference material and curate it. I have an inspiration blog that I keep organized with tags, a pinterest for character wardrobes, and a very organized set of reference folders on my computer for everything from animals to weapons to locations.

This way, if I need a reference for something or just want to look at pictures to get my creative juices flowing, I have a place to go. Interestingly, the things I use reference for most often are actually textures! I have a folder for textures with things like rusty metal, concrete, and viscera.

I know that’s a lot, and I kinda got off track. I hope it helps, though!
