I just realized sketching with airbrush(simple circle, default) in SAI is better for me :/
when I was shopping today with my mom, we ran into one of her ex-coworkers and he introduced himself and shook my hand and was really friendly
and he and mom talked for a bit, and then after he walked away, my mom said
”He got fired because he killed three people.”
and I was kinda spooked for like the next 5 minutes until I remembered my mom is a surgeon
the ultimate bff necklace
I don’t have nine friends
Supermodel Karlie Kloss was photoshopped to look less thin for a Numero campaign. There are so many things wrong with this. Models are forced to be incredibly thin to fit a certain aesthetic, but when they do, they’re so emaciated that they have to be photoshopped to not look sick.
Robin Hardy, a former creative director at Vogue, has commented on the practice of photoshopping to cover up the aesthetic and health costs of extreme thinness:
“At the time, when we pored over the raw images, creating the appearance of smooth flesh over protruding ribs, softening the look of collarbones that stuck out like coat hangers, adding curves to flat bottoms and cleavage to pigeon chests, we felt we were doing the right thing…
But now, I wonder. Because for all our retouching, it was still clear to the reader that these women were very, very thin. But, hey, they still looked great!
They had 22-inch waists (those were never made bigger), but they also had breasts and great skin. They had teeny tiny ankles and thin thighs, but they still had luscious hair and full cheeks.
Thanks to retouching, our readers… never saw the horrible, hungry downside of skinny. That these underweight girls didn’t look glamorous in the flesh. Their skeletal bodies, dull, thinning hair, spots and dark circles under their eyes were magicked away by technology, leaving only the allure of coltish limbs and Bambi eyes.”
Ahh I never new this got so much attention! Yay! This kind of thing getting awareness makes me so much happier than that other picture…
I’ve never heard of this before, but this is SO INCREDIBLY telling. We all know of models being photoshopped to look thinner, but in reality some of these people are so thin to the point of unhealthiness that people in power, not wanting to show the public what has been done to these models, purposely reverse-photoshop them to look healthier, because God forbid we be forced to come to terms with the overwhelming pressure we put on women to be thin.
Just….wow. Can’t even handle this right now.
^From my personal blog, hopefully that made some sense and didn’t come across as problematic.
Congratulations to the Luteces who won the award for the character of the year! Science is proud of you, guys, and so are we!
With “Batman” #28 now set for a Six Months Later issue, “Batman” #29 will conclude the “Dark City” arc of “Zero Year” — but that wasn’t all Snyder had to share. The writer immediately took to Twitter to post a character design by Dustin Nguyen for the spoiler issue of — in Snyder’s words — “a new (?) character appearing in the new #28.”
Although Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “Zero Year: Dark City” arc was originally scheduled to conclude in “Batman” #28, Snyder took to Twitter with a lengthy post on Tuesday to announce a one-month delay in the conclusion of the epic Batman origin — but it’s a delay that readers will likely get excited about. In what Snyder dubs as a thank you to the fans for supporting “Zero Year,” Snyder, James Tynion IV and artist Dustin Nguyen will craft an entire issue that takes place six months in the future of the current DC Universe, which “reveals all sorts of massive surprises coming to Gotham in the spring and summer of 2014.”
