So “Blurred Lines”… Great song, awful lyrics, right?
Well, Weird Al Yankovic fixed that for us.
Also, some grammar-nazi and kinetic typography porn for your thorough enjoyment.
Seriously, this made most of my upcoming days :)
Potential Ôquo work form revamp :U they have the skeletal structure of a late tezcacoatl-like demon, so it makes much more sense for them to have a snakey face!
suddenlyapples asked: • u • MAMA HOW DO YOU DO THE NEAT FOUR LAYERS THING THING THING YOU WERE DOING THAT HAPPENED SUPER FAST?
HEY KID! You wanna give your art a slick finish that ups the contrast and saturation of your colors, giving your art some extreme, eye-pleasin’ intensity while also smoothing it out like buttercream, sensually caressing that shit in a soft, sensual fuzzy glow like you’re watching dream porn and it looks something like this or this or this????
Then you should try….
Taught to me by doxolove, like the coolest most awesome artist ever, the Dox-Effect is a nifty post-production finishing effect. You will need Photoshop to do this!
STEP 1: So you’ve finished your masterpiece and it’s looking sexy but you want people to do more than swoon when they see it. You want them to swoon AND sigh. Longingly.
Merge your artwork into one layer. If you are importing from Paint Tool SAI or another program, a high-res JPEG is fine. Do whatever other post production work you need to (color correcting, adjusting your contrast, levels, and etc.).
After you’re done with that jazz, copy your merged artwork layer three times so that you have four identical layers.
STEP 2: Turn off the top 3 layers so that only your original Background layer (#1) is showing. Select that layer.
Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Blur the layer until your picture is a blob of vaguely unrecognizable colors.
STEP 3: Turn on the layer above the background layer (#2) and select that layer.Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur. Blur the layer until, like the first, the picture is vaguely unrecognizable. I usually keep the angle at the 90 degrees, but you can play around this for added effect.
STEP 3 THE SEQUEL: We ain’t done with you, Layer #2.
In your Layers window, click the drop down menu for Blend Mode (this is the box that usually says “Normal”). You are going to select one of four Modes: Overlay, Soft Light, Hard Light, or Vivid Light.
Each Mode produces a different effect that will, ultimately, affect the way your finished Dox-Effect looks. My favorite is usually Hard Light. You can always go back and change the Mode of this layer (and the other we will change) to experiment with how it looks.
STEP 4: Turn on Layer #3. Again, click the drop down for Blend Mode. Select one of four Modes: Overlay, Soft Light, Hard Light, or Vivid Light. Usually, I just select the same Mode that I used on Layer #2, but you can mix and match to experiment.
STEP 5: Turn on your topmost layer, Layer #4. This layer’s Blend Mode will remain Normal. Next to the Blend Mode box, click the Opacity box. Use the slider to bring the Opacity of your layer gradually down until that shit lookin’ good. The Shit Lookin’ Good range is usually 65% - 85%.
The lower the Opacity, the more the effects of the layered Layers beneath will show through. So it’s up to you to decide how sexified you want your final product.
And that is it! Congratulations, you’ve put some sweet ass post-production finishing on your already awesome art.
