New favourite joke:
A Roman walks into a bar, holds up two fingers, and says ”Five beers, please.”
i dont get it
No one explain it
After the Roman drinks the beers, he tells the bartender, “I want a martinus.”
"Don’t you mean a martini?”
"If I wanted two, I would’ve asked for them."
these are the best jokes ever
"I know Falcon’s suit is going to evolve and I’m hoping it evolves into red spandex,” he said. “I’ve been working really hard on my body and was very disappointed when I didn’t get a copious amount of spandex to wear while shooting this movie."
I’ve been getting a lot of asks lately about the brushes and textures I use in my work, so here’s a BIG FAT REFERENCE POST for those of you who were curious! Bear in mind that I’m really lazy and don’t know what half the settings do, so don’t be afraid to experiment to figure out what works best for you :>
I use the pencil tool with SAI’s native paper texture both for sketching and for applying opaque color with no blending. Lower opacities give it the feel of different pencil hardnesses, while full opacity makes it more like a palette knife, laying down hard-edged, heavy color for detail work or eventual blending with other brushes.
Mostly made this because I’m lazy and I didn’t want to have to keep turning my textures off/opacity up when I wanted to ink something (even though I don’t do it very often), or lay down flat colors. I find the line quality to be much more crisp than Photoshop, and you can manually adjust in-program stabilization to help smooth out hand wobbles.
The plain ol’ brush tool acts as sort of an in-between for me in terms of brush flow. It’s heavier than my usual workhorse brush, for faster color application and rough blending, but not as heavy as the pencil tool, which has no blending at all. I like to use the canvas texture on this brush to help break up the unnatural smoothness that usually accompanies digital brushes, but it works just fine without.
A brush tool set to flat bristle is by far my favorite to paint with. I don’t use any textures with it because I think the shape of the brush provides enough of that by itself. I use it for everything from rough washes to more refined shaping and polish. It’s just GREAT.
Best used for smooth blending, washes, gradients, and smoky atmospheric effects.
Basically a grittier version of the watercolor tool, because too much smoothness weird me out. Good for clouds and fog, as the name suggests, or just less boring gradient fills.
To further stave off the artificially smooth look of digital painting, I almost always overlay some sort of paper texture, and it’s almost always this one, which I scanned and edited myself. You’re all welcome to use it, no permission required!
Using overlays in SAI is just as easy as using them in Photoshop. Just paste the texture into its own layer above everything you want it to apply to, and change the layer mode to Overlay. That’s it!
Want a more prominent texture? Up the contrast. Something more subtle? Lower the contrast or reduce the layer opacity. You can also use a tinted overlay to adjust the overall palette and bring a little more color unity to an otherwise disparate piece! Just be aware that too much texture can hurt the readability of the work beneath it, so I’d err on the side of subtlety.
Hope that helps!
The Avengers “assemble” at the Oscars.
no one on the oscar’s has swagger like us
I really like how this angle has the mic split Bruce right down the middle - just like he has two sides. Bruce, and Hulk.
But look how they fucking ARE their characters:
Tony is at ease on stage, obviously, but strutting his stuff all the same. Fuck humility. I belong here, damn straight tony stark is crashing your oscars. Hand near pockets, ready to chillax with a scotch, probably more busy thinking about how good pepper looks in her red carpet attire than anything else. Sunglasses to ease his hangover headache from last night.
Steve, the proper gentleman, in his 21st century tux. He is not uncomfortable, but hes never been one for the spotlight all the same. Straight back, shoulders firm, smiling gently.
Bruce is a fucking giddy kid, “holy shit, im at the oscars, this is incredible, i bet i could scan the brain waves of every celebrity and brilliant directing mind here for similarities”
Clint has his hands near his mouth, a bit of a worrier. Hes not unsettled, but he sees better from a distance. Certainly not liking the center stage.
Nick fury is done with your shit.
people who think steve rogers is a boring character probably didn’t watch the same movies
