“I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other
Way.”—minuty (via perfect)
Hey, first off, love your work and style and just everything :D! Now, I was wondering if you have any kinds of tips on how to learn colorising? Or is it really just a matter of patience and practice?
Hey thx again Anon !
I’m not patient at all, I want result really fast and right know :D. I think it shapes my coloring style.
I think what matters is story. Drawing and coloring skills will come along at least an “honest skill”, I don’t think I’m really good with technic I just do what I need to tell my stories and make believe people that I can draw everything. If you really have something really strong and deep for you, you’ll work everything out until you get what you want and it is an endless adventure !
but here a tips, I don’t know if it is a good tips or not, it is just based on my personnal experience, don’t know if it’s true or not. But it took me years to understand that. It might not work for you as I like to work with opaque brushes. So each color I pickup is the right one.
I only use the “triangle” color wheel and can’t work colors without it.
I mainly work with what I call “movement on the color wheel” and comparaison of two colors on the canvas.
movement to the down and up is value.
movement to the left is desaturation, movement to the right is saturation.
What you will notice with the triangle is that you will get the most saturate color only at mid value.
It helps a lot to know that, You have more color range to trick the eyes of people at middle value.
So, the combination of value movement+ desaturation/saturation movement will create color temperature.
after that, its all about your eyes trying to see what color is colder or warmer than the other. I wish I could give more explanations ‘cause there is also movement on the wheel and much more than that but my english is not good enough.
With a rectangulare color picker it’s like :
Of course, at the end is all about what your eyes see, so we all should be able to work on a rectangular color picker by practicing but it can be very hard for a beginner (and a colorblind like me :D ahahahohohohihi)
Now you all know my secret, it’s a really cold and “robotic” way to work colors but it works for me. ^^
I close the “ask me anything” for a while, I need to focus on my work.
We were grabbing a bite of lunch at a small cafe, in a mall, right across from a booth that sold jewelry and where ears could be pierced for a fee. A mother approaches with a little girl of six or seven years old. The little girl is clearly stating that she doesn’t want her ears pierced, that’s she’s afraid of how much it will hurt, that she doesn’t like earrings much in the first place. Her protests, her clear ‘no’ is simply not heard. The mother and two other women, who work the booth, begin chatting and trying to engage the little girl in picking out a pair of earrings. She has to wear a particular kind when the piercing is first done but she could pick out a fun pair for later.
"I don’t want my ears pierced."
"I don’t want any earrings."
The three adults glance at each other conspiratorially and now the pressure really begins. She will look so nice, all the other girls she knows wear earrings, the pain isn’t bad.
She, the child, sees what’s coming and starts crying. As the adults up the volume so does she, she’s crying and emitting a low wail at the same time. “I DON’T WANT MY EARS PIERCED.”
Her mother leans down and speaks to her, quietly but strongly, the only words we could hear were ‘… embarrassing me.’
We heard, then, two small screams, when the ears were pierced.
Little children learn early and often that ‘no doesn’t mean no.’
Little children learn early that no one will stand with them, even the two old men looking horrified at the events from the cafeteria.
Little girls learn early and often that their will is not their own.
No means no, yeah, right.
Most often, for kids and others without power, ”no means force.”
