Backgrounds: The Set Up.
A continuation for fungii on how I tackle backgrounds.
never apologise for posting these
i got multiple questions about this, so i’ll just answer it on this ask
sorry i kept putting it off for so long…
so… i guess i would think of what kind of sky i would want
i like sunsets, so i’ll draw that
so i start with the very back color; it’s a dull purple
my intent is to go from purple/dark grey->peach/pink
i like to use this fuzzy brush
not sure what to call these… the ‘back’ / ‘dark’ clouds?
i put on random splotches at 40~50% opacity of dark blue around the edges
i’m going to put my light source at the bottom right, so i put a rusty orange color slightly at 10~20% opacity
then i blended the colors before i started to add more colors
the more you blend, the better the picture will look 8)
now i put my pen at around size 8-10 to put in thin areas of peach/gold where the light will hit at around 60% opacity
color it where ever you think it looks good
i like to adjust my colors and edit on sai
on an overlay layer on top of the drawing, i airbrushed so dark blue in at the top left and right
then near the end i like to use the combination of lower brightness and higher contrast
i’ll put a video later since my explanation is horrible most of the time…
sorry i put the drawing sideways… it wouldn’t fit
try these drawings for reference…
maybe use the eyedropper and use colors from these?
hope that helps
this is for the multiple color asks received
For future reference.
For those who would ever need it. -C
reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship
Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.
don’t worry, your english turned out fine, dude.
as a foreword of warning,
it is best that you don’t use this post as a standalone tutorial,
instead, try to use it as a study aid to help you make sense of real-life references.
(same applies for any decent “art tutorial” out there, really. :p)
bolded numbers correspond to the numbers on this post’s pictures.
I need this. I cant Pelvis.
Okay, so I’m feeling pretty dang confident with this program. I have friends interested in using it, and, rather than create my own redundant tutorial, please allow me to link to the other tutorials people have made that I used the most when figuring out the program.
Emofuri requires three things:
- The actual Emofuri program (duh),
- an .mmo file template, which can be acquired on the Emofuri site (linked below!)
- and a .psd drawing with the character elements on special layers. You can create the .psd in Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI (my fav), or Fire Alpaca. (Fire Alpaca has the added bonus of being able to name layers with Japanese characters—if you are using SAI to create layers, I strongly recommend getting FA if only to rename your layers).
Before you download Emofuri, make sure to change your system localization to Japanese—otherwise everything Japanese will show as ??? or boxes. Don’t make this harder than it has to be. If you don’t know how to change your localization, do a quick Google to see how to do it for your OS.
After you download Emofuri, make sure you immediately open it to make sure it works on your computer. Don’t spend hours on a .psd file just to open Emofuri and realize it doesn’t work! Also, stare in terror at all the kanji you don’t know. Let it sink in. The horror will help you grow stronger. Pretty soon you’re going to know all the characters for “hair” and “eyebrow.”
- First of all, the emofurihelp blog will save your butt. Especially the FAQ! If you’re having a problem that seems totally bizarre and unfair, 9 times out of 10 someone else has already experienced it and had it answered by emofurihelp.
- shabnakh-adyr's layer tutorial was a FRIGGING LIFE SAVER. I referenced this tutorial through 90% of my learning curve in creating my drawings. It will help you figure out what to draw and what layers to put it on. There are also downloads to the templates you want to use (templates are basically your animation rigging, what you’ll apply your custom drawings to).
- The official emofuri help forum has a few additional templates if you want to muck around with those!
- yumizoomi has a short, straight-forward tutorial that really helped me when I was having trouble importing my .psd into Emofuri (it’s not easy to figure out on your own :T)
- professorbel has a series of tutorials that really help with adding additional parts to your characters (parts that are non-standard, like glasses or scarves or something): importing the parts, and editing their animation settings. professorbel also has a crash course in animation, which is a useful place to start, but I found the catalog method to be a little clunky. I will show you guys how I animate in my own tutorial later!
- And, finally, a helpful tumblr user I can’t direct link for some reason has a very simple guide to editing parts parameters, for when the program isn’t smart enough to realize on its own that eyes don’t move that way. And trust me: IT ISN’T.
Up next, I’ll have a tutorial for you guys on animation. The catalog method is quick but I had trouble making it work in the timeline. If none of that makes sense to you, don’t worry: I’ll cover all this crap. With pictures!
One of my favorite things about living in Spain was speaking Spanish. Blinding flash of the obvious, speaking Spanish in Spain, but I loved every minute of it. I loved ordering breakfast at the cafe around the corning of my apartment. I loved chatting with the bus driver. I loved talking to my little 3 year old students in baby Spanish. I loved having park bench conversations with old Spanish men on Sundays. I even love making mistakes! I loved everything about it, how you had to work and work at it, to have the soft “j”s and double “r” roll off your tongue.
Spanish is such a beautiful language for me, and so very different from English. I love that you literally say “give me a coffee with milk” and “kisses” instead of hugs. Spanish is like Italian, it’s so colorful and vibrant. It’s so alive! You speak with more than just your lips and tongue, you talk with your whole face, your hands, your arms. It’s so elaborate and dramatic! I love it! In Spain there are so many accents and so many regional sayings, you are always hearing something new! There are so many beautiful expressions, so many interesting and descriptive ways to say things in Spanish, I never get tired of learning and practicing. And one of the things Spain does the best: swearing.
There are so many different ways to swear in Spain, it’s hard to remember them all! Cursing is an integral part of the language, so it has become less taboo that in English. You hear it much more often and much more frequently peppering up sentences than we do in the US or England. No one can ever say that Spanish isn’t a colorful language.
And let’s be honest here, what’s one of the first things you do when you start studying a new language? You look up the bad words (palabrotas)! So here, I have done the hard work for you and compiled a list of some of the most common and hilarious curse words used in Spain! Feel free to chime in with a few of your own!
1. Me cago en tu puta madre
This one takes the cake for one of the most hilarious and frightfully offensive swear words I have heard in Spain. Literally, “I shit on your bitch of a mother,” one should use this phrase selectively and with caution. Remember, madres are sacred in Spain. In fact, the “me cago en…” is one of the most common curse phrases you’ll hear in Spain. Whether you hear me cago en Dios “I shit on God”-that’s one is really bad -or me cago en la leche, literally “I shit in the milk” but used more like “holy shit!” there is no shortage of possibilities to be had with this one, like me cago en todos los santos or me cago en la Virgen del Pilar. Just remember if you want to insult anyone or anything in Spain, bring in the moms or anything related to the Catholic church and you’re good to go!
Joder is about as common in Spanish as ok is to English. You hear it all the time. Loosely translated as “fuck,” it is nowhere near as strong. To soften it, many of my younger students would say jooo-er and not say the “d” or the little ones say jolines. That of course doesn’t stop the adults. I used to work with a teacher who loved to say (scream) “Joooooder, por qué no te calles?” (Fuck, why don’t you just shut up?) at the students in class. It was hilarious. And a little bit frightening, but that’s the Spanish public education system for you.
Personally, I like to think gilipollas means “dumbass.” Normally I equate the phrase no seas gilipollas to “don’t be a dumbass.” My middle school students used to love to insult each other with this one. Sometimes I translate it in my head as “blithering idiot” to keep things interesting.
4. La hostia
This one was bigger in southern Spain than when I lived in the north. La hostia means “the host,” you know, like in communion. Spain being a thoroughly Catholic country, one of the worst and most common ways to curse is to somehow incorporate the holy mother church. Hostia or hostias can mean many different things, like “shit” or “holy shit” usually an exclamation all on it’s own, like something you can’t believe. Eres la hostia means “you’re the shit,” in a good way or hostia puta “holy fuck.” Don’t forget you can always say, me cago en la hostia, “I shit on the host.” Yikes, that’s blasphemous!
5. Que te folle un pez
This one is one of my favorites and one I have personally never said because I am terrified of using it wrong, and I think it sounds just plain ridiculous as a native English speaker. Que te folle un pez basically means “I hope you get fucked by a fish.” See what I mean when I say Spanish is colorful? How do you even come close to insulting like that in English?! How do you even begin to compare “screw you” or “fuck you” to that?
In spanish they say “cojones sirve para todo,” and it’s true. Cojones is without a doubt the most versatile of all the Spanish curse words on this list; you can use it for just about anything. Normally, it means “balls,” you know, in the masculine sense. “You’ve got balls (as in courage or well, the other kind too)”- tienes cojones. “That bothers me” - me toca los cojones and my personal favorite, estoy hasta los cojones - “I can’t take it anymore, I’m up to my (eye) balls.” Here is a hilarious video in Spanish that explains it all!
For me cabrón has always meant “bastard,” “dick” or “total asshat.” Literally meaning “male goat,” I most frequently hear it as qué cabrón or qué cabrones in plural. People who suck, people who are assholes and deserve a good punch in the heard. According to Urban Dictionary, “A good definition that would apply to all Spanish speaking countries would be asshole-fucker-bitch.” Can’t top that even if I tried.
8. Que te den (por culo)
This one is kinda like “up yours.” Seriously, does anyone even say that anymore? I learned this the hard way after getting in a big screaming fight with one of my roommates 2 years ago about how washing dishes means less cockroaches. Ick. Anyways, culo means “ass” so I think you can probably figure out what the rest of it means on your own. I am too much of a lady to write that out completely, plus, who knows what kind of traffic I would be inviting on here if I did. You can say just que te den or que te den por culo, both meaning “fuck you.”
Coño means, c….., cu…, crap. I just can’t bring myself to say it or write it. Let’s just say it’s very naughty and starts with a “cu” and ends with a “nt.” I don’t think I have ever said the “c” word in my life. I think I would have been expelled from my fancy women’s college if I ever did. Normally it’s used like “fuck” or “shit” and not as strong as the “c” word in English.
10. Pollas en vinagre
I’m going to end with my all-time favorite curse word in Spanish. Readers, I present to you pollas en vinagre “dicks in vinegar !” Use it how you best see fit, its exact meaning still eludes me!
