My best friend and I did a thing.
TUMBLR, THIS IS WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE. REALLY. STOP IT.
SHUT YOUR TRAPS. You people bitch and moan about Barbie and every other goddamn doll day and night. Well, now someone decided to do something about the problem, based the doll off of average stats. AND YOU DON’T STOP BITCHING. NOTHING SATISFIES YOU.
"But a guy made the doll!"
TFB, you guys…
Ex Model Charlotte Dawson has been found dead in her home. Suspected suicide, brought on by her near constant battle with depression and interaction with social media.
I dare you to tell me that words don’t hurt.
I dare you.
that’s fucking disgusting. she was literally on tv last night talking about online bullying, so everyone’s reaction is to tell her to kill herself? that’s sick.
People are so nasty it makes me sick. That they can so easily hide behind their anonymity and not have the guts to say it straight is only cowardly.
Let this be a clear message to those who only know how to hurt.
You’re in a better place to start again Charlotte.

WARNING: MATH AND PHYSICS
many of us see the channels tab as a nice way to turn scanned line art into a transparent layer, but how does it work?
"we’re paying $39.99 a month for four channels what a ripoff"
the channels record how much of each color (red, green and blue, if you are in RGB mode) is in your image! the way to think of the channels (and, in the end, what they really are) is that they are additive layers of red, green and blue.
"additive?" you say. "what does that mean?" well, if you add red to green to blue, they make white (at least, when you are mixing light and not paint!). the white parts of your drawing are a result of green, blue and red being added to each other. the other colors of your drawing are a result of the different colors being added in different amounts to each other. if you add green to blue, they make cyan. if you add blue to red, you make magenta.
therefore, if you subtract red, green and blue from white, it should make black, right?
i will demonstrate on photoshop.
take white (ffffff)
add a red (ff0000) layer above it, and set it to “subtract”
you have now subtracted red (ff0000) from white (ffffff), to make cyan (00ffff)
now add a green (00ff00) layer above that, and also set it to “subtract”
you have now subtracted green (00ff00) from cyan (00ffff) to make blue (0000ff)
now add a blue (0000ff) layer above that, and set it to subtract
you have now subtracted blue (0000ff) from blue (0000ff), to make black (000000).(1)
what application does this have with your art?
well, you will notice at the bottom of the channels tab that there is an option to load the channels as a selection. because the selection tool is actually a very binary tool, it only thinks of things in terms of white and black (or: presence and absence. either something is there, or it’s partially there, or it’s not there at all). if you select only the red channel (on a red canvas), the selection tool will think of the red as “partially white”. so, when you choose the option “load as selection”, it selects all of the white and partially white (also known as “colors”), but none of the black. it thinks of the white areas as “opaque”, the colored areas as “translucent” and the black areas as “transparent”. what was once red will be gray, or a translucent white.
this is why this is so useful for doing line art! when you right-click your new selection and choose the option “select inverse” (or, another way to put it, “invert selection”), you now have all the black and partially black (or, partially not-white)(2) selected, and you can now fill them in with real black! you now have solid lines to work with!
(1) i suppose you may have picked up on the math of this. “f” is the highest “digit” in the hex color code (with a base of sixteen, each “digit” being 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, a, b, c, d, e, and f. a through f are stand-ins for what would be single-character numbers if our math was base-16. but instead, it is base-10. so we have 10 single-character digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. double digits would start at 16 instead of 10, and triple digits would start at 256 instead of 100. because we do not have a base-16 counting system, we substitute letters because they have single characters, and the hex codes ARE base-16.) so, f minus f is zero, like, say, 6 minus 6 is zero. you could think of “f” as 15. (sixteen, in this weird alphanumeric counting system, would be written “10”. seriously. 26 would be “1a”. 13 would be “d”.) furthermore, each two digits of the hex color code represent the amount of red, green and blue a particular color has. with this being a base-16 system and our numbers meaning slightly different things from normal, something like “80” would actually mean 128, because instead of representing 8 times ten, “80” would represent 8 times 16. “ff” is 255. there are 255 levels of red something can be, with “00” representing no red at all (so there are 256 levels in total for each two digits of the hex code, “00” representing a lack of color). “00ff00” means “zero red, 255 green, zero blue”. 00ff00, if you may recall, is green. 0000ff is blue. ff0000 is red. ffffff indicates a full presence of red, green and blue, and is therefore white. 000000 indicates a complete lack of any of these colors, and is therefore black. now you know (maybe) what hex codes mean!!!!!!
(2) you can think of white and black the way that hot and cold are thought of. white is a presence of all (visible) light, and black is an absence of any (visible) light at all. similarly, “hot” is a presence of heat and “cold” is an absence of heat. you can’t actually measure things in terms of how cold they are, but in terms of how “not hot” they are. a complete absence of heat would be zero kelvin, or “absolute zero”. black is kinda like that.
THIS SHIT IS BANANA’S - B.A.N.A.N.A’S
SCREAM CAUSE IT’S HEALTHY!
ALL HAIL THE HEALTHY BANANA ICE-CREAM QUEEN!
- Frozen bananas (1 banana makes 1/2 a cup of ice-cream!
- A few drops of water
- Food processor or blender!
This recipe makes me so happy!
It turns out that frozen bananas are good for more than just dipping in chocolate. If you freeze a banana until solid, then whiz it up in a blender or food processor, it gets creamy and a little gooey, just like good custard ice cream. I was surprised at this bit of kitchen wizardry; I assumed that a blended banana would be flaky or icy. But no — it makes creamy, rich ice cream.
Some bananas, depending on their ripeness, have a bit of that green aftertaste. you can also experiment with adding in another ingredient or two, like a tablespoon of peanut butter and another of honey. Delicious!
Have you ever tried frozen-banana ice cream? Try it! It’s an easy way to stay cool and use up over-ripe bananas at the same time.
