[This is off one of Neonnoodle’s posts from SomethingAwful, but it’s such a useful technique I wanna repost it here.]
Here’s one approach I’ve found, which is based on the gamut mask idea, but a little simpler and tuned to working in PS:
1. Start with three…
Something I’ve been reading up on recently in my quest to provide backgrounds for my drawings is Disney’s focus on pools of light in backgrounds, the idea being that backgrounds, while important and containing valuable information, are set pieces. A background on its own isn’t…
I wanted to do something with a better background, then this happened.
such a great style, really fit to draw the cool kids
Ladies and gentlemen, this girl is good. I reblog this particular song because it is new and also one of my tracks, but having looked at the rest of Horizon’s work on YouTube I have discovered that she has a beautiful voice, a knack for lyric-writing, and plenty of production know-how! Do check this out, as well as her other creations.
Homestuck’s Flare, with my original vocals and lyrics.
Happy early 413; would you like some angst? I mentally applied this to both Dave/Jade and Rose/John while writing, but make of it what you will.
help I can’t stop writing Homestuck lyrics;;;

people of tumblr, I need some more music. My favourite bands are the wonder years, mychildren mybride, daggermouth, the story so far, have heart, mxpx, a day to remember, trapped under ice, the holly springs disaster, the ghost inside, defeater, terror, harms way, lionheart, old memphis may fire and set your goals. Really just any good pop punk or hardcore would be lovely. and some southern would be awesome too
so much hard core and emocore, well i won’t offer only this type of bands because I’m more of a indie and southern guy. anywho. Have you tried Four year strong (especially ” (…) (on a saturday)” song /can’t quite remember the full title of their best song but, youtube is there and you still got fingers to type and search, and anyway they got a bunch of good songs. also in a more emo-core direction there is “raised by the wolfes” by some band, which i forgot the name also.
“Your sex is on fire” of Kings of Leon show they are friggin’ awesome and should be respected even thou you don’t like, and for a fusion between your “Bite the bullet” and “listen to the south” needs (which are good one’s btw) Try: Maylene and the sons of disaster. and maybe before that wolfmother.
i got other bands but i don’t even know if you’re cheking this reply out or if I’m in the right direction so, yeah.
okay heres andrew hussie with a knife

sweet song. great to drive my car with the wind on the face.
mindfangs bizarre adventure
FROM NOW ON THIS JOURNAL WILL BE ILLEGIBLE BECAUSE my arm burned off so im going to be writing with my tongue, like this paper is your face
im writing this from jail, binky the clown and his jungle japes managed to capture me. I thought it was just another funny joke but it turns out they were serious. SERIOUSly they sent one chick and she was only
reallykinda hot. What reason would I have to fear. besides the fact that biologically troll breasts fire lasers and we could have killed each other at any time.
but seriously sending one person named NEOPHYTE seems like a last ditch effort. i thought i had it all in the bag, and i was ready to check out in the 7 items or less line. BUT as I soon discovered, you can’t judge a book by how big its boobs are. turns out she had other assets….
btw, how the fuck does a middleblood get raised by a GIANT dragon. people of her caste level are usually civil servants that just mow peoples lawns. usually they have bear lususes, or chicken lususes, or the really cool ones get motorcycle lususes and do frontflips out of the brooding cavern and make all the other wrigglers cry. but that only happened once and i just made it up. but thats what i would do if i was a lower caste.
BUT seriously how the fuck did she get a dragon. and a really AWESOME DRAGON.
something blocked the light of the unbitten moon. i say unbitten becuase five seconds later, her dragon literally ate the moon. it then became unseasonably dark as its shadow covered the sky. but thats redundant information because HOLY SHIT, IT ATE THE FUCKING MOON DID YOU HEAR WHAT I JUST SAID.
i knew there was only one way to beat the dragon, and it was to challenge it to a staring contest, which I always win because I have 8 eyes and everyone else has 2. but that was a mistake because its eyes were MADE OF THE SUN, AND I STARED INTO IT TOO LONG AND ONE OF MY EYES TURNED RED AND DIED. i started blinking repeatedly TO GET THE SUN OUT.
When I regained sight in the other, there was only red.
it was mindfangs ass and it was hypnotic. i couldnt look away even though SHES ON MY DECK and then the fleet was on fire, because her dragon was sick and threw up. THE SUN.
Neophyte turned around gave me one of her ridiculous forced grins.
“MY LUSUS IS NAMED… PYRALSPITE,” she said, except more numbery because she speaks like she’s from Sesame Street.
“I DON’T GIVE A SHIIIIIIIIT,” I sang, drawing my blade and swinging it in the wrong direction. And then I turned around and started hamboning, just, like, slapping my knees and shit. Fronting. And beatboxing. YOU SCARED. YOU SCARED MINDFANG. DRAGON ATE MY LUSUS WHO CARES ILL GET A NEW LUSUS, THATS HOW I ROLL. U SCARED.
Then I started the bootyshake.
I forgot she was blind so she cut my arm off in the middle of my gyrations and flew off on her magic dragon, who ate it like a tiny dorito. leaving me alone, bleeding, on my burning ship. stupid sexy redglare. YOU THINK YOU DONT NEED TO CAPTURE ME TO HAVE MY SUBMISSION??? ILL HAVE YOU YET. SOOn…. soon…. after i get off of this boat….
ok sure put me on trial. im fucking oj simpson over here, im ready.
I wonder how well she knows it’s not what I do with my arms she has to fear?
tears of laughter are coming out of my eyes, MUST NOT LET THIS BECOME HEADCANNON: HAHA as if, thats too much bizarre and amazing at the same time.
