Under a cut to spare those who haven’t gotten caught up in Gravity Falls. It’s just theory stuff for the most part, with a sprinkling of established clues from the show.
We try to watch films together, and it starts off well, but somehow we always end up out of sync.
i cant tell you how much this cartoon means to me…
this will fix that problem :)
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
I bit the bullet and bought an Adobe CC subscription because I’m tired of my CS4 Design Premium crashing (legal version btw).
Sometimes I think the only thing stopping Feminists from calling ourselves “Equalists” (equal rights, representation, opportunity, challenging hypocrisy, etc.) is because of the negative connotation with the Equalists in Legend of Korra. I like LoK, but if it didn’t exist, we might have a less-misleading name for ourselves. Really, you gotta admit the term “feminist” feels very limited to the breadth of things we stand for. Thoughts?
Edit: I say this, not because I’m afraid that “feminist” is a “dirty word”. I say this because feminism isn’t JUST limited to concerns about only women. It umbrellas many social concerns for people who aren’t just female, including race, sexual orientation, gender roles and toxic masculinity. I’m just worried that the “feminine” in Feminism makes us appear to be ONLY concerned with people who identify as female and no one else. So I can see why so many people get confused.
I’ll pay the chunky $600 to fly over to see my little sisters for Christmas, but don’t butcher another holiday with all the fighting again, mom and dad. I swear, I’m gonna just march over there and adopt em so they don’t have to deal with your toxic examples and verbal abuse >:(
I AM going this year, yeah! We’ll def need to meet up irl :D Have you been to CTN before?
When something doesn’t look right, but you can’t figure out why, make a copy of your layer and try some of these tricks. Staring too long at a piece without breaks is often where I “kill” a piece and lose scope of the work as a whole. Thanks to letsplaygods for the supersaturate trick.
I already flip and value check often. Though those other things seem like pretty niffty tricks to keep in mind when i’m spending more than 4 hours straight on a piece//working on something from start to finish.
Also for the love of god remember to zoom out. I’ve had so many awful moments of “this is lookin’ greaFFFFFUUUUUUUU”
I use the flip trick religiously, and the value check when I remember to. Zooming out is also VERY important. It has been hard to teach myself to work initially zoomed out. Focusing in too tight can totally mess up your piece. Remember, people see the big picture first, then the details. That’s how you should work as well.
also if you’re making a big composition where you need to center the attention on certain area you should try the effect “median” (filter->noise->median), it’ll help you see if the sillouettes in your composition aren’t too overwhelming and if you need to fix them in order to direct attention towards the main subject of picture
