COLOR PALETTE MASTERPOST by forbiddenforest

So today I felt like sharing some useful websites that provide pre-made color palettes (left side), as well as sites that allow you to create custom ones (right side). They can be used for graphic design, themes, art, interior design, or just something pretty to look at.

Anonymous asked:

Any tips on writing someone in a semi-apocalyptic setting, who is trying to get over smoking?

fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment:

Here is a big long article on withdrawal symptoms that you may find useful.

Also, besides the nicotine withdrawal, some people who quit smoking discover that they also have an oral fixation, which is a general habit of sticking things in your mouth. Sometimes this can lead to bad habits, like biting one’s fingernails. Other people cope by chewing gum or ice, gnawing on pencils or pens, keeping a toothpick handy, or eating suckers.

A semi-apocalyptic setting is likely going to make it hard for your character to find anti-smoking aids, such as nicotine gum or patches, due to everything being scarce. Plan accordingly. If this means your character’s gonna quit cold turkey, then they’re going to experience some severe withdrawal symptoms, especially if they were heavy smokers.

Another way you could take it is by having your character simply shift the source of the nicotine to whatever’s available. They could switch from cigarettes to snuff, or chewing tobacco, or perhaps even e-cigarettes if your setting will allow for it. If your character is the type who looks for a loophole as opposed to terminating the addiction, that could serve as an interesting bit of characterization.

Hope that helps a little.

Curious about MUDRAS?
A mudra is a position of the body generally the hand and fingers used in yoga.   You may have seen various paintings and statues of Buddha utilizing one of these gestures.

The return of the black bounding box or Livestream recording 2. I recommend you go watch it on YouTube for a bigger viewing box and after it is fully processed, better quality as well.

Someone asked me for a colouring tutorial and I do believe that there’s no good explanatory way to show how I colour beside video footage. This was done on last night’s livestream.
