balin-a-la-mode said: Blue and Orange are complementary colors. When combined, complementary colors cancel each other out and produce either black or white. Eat science.

Never said they had to be combined. Eat that.

balin-a-la-mode, complementary colors make gray…

Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

I don’t care what your blog theme is, this can save someone’s life and needs to be spread

Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, the boy is the focal point of the ad.
English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. 
This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. 
A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. 
Here, I’ll make you a better ad.

Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees this and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. 

THANK YOU for putting it into words!

why is there this obsession with an animated homestuck feature being an anime?  like, there are some really lovely products people have made with that in mind, but it just seems so peculiar to me that people specifically want an anime aesthetic.  I don’t really know how to explain it but whenever I see people talking about it they say “oh, when homestuck becomes an anime…”

again we run into the issue of what the distinction there is.  is it aesthetic? style? the use of japanese tropes?  is it just a matter of “I like anime and homestuck and I want to see what they’d be like together”? do people essentially just want animated homestuck or is it important to them that it look like it came from japan?  and if so why?  how much can you focus on converting it into something that looks like your average anime before you start losing the essential homestuck-ness?

I dunno, it’s just very confusing to me. 

Well if it were me I’d want it to be an anime because anime is being more and more widely recognized as the all-ages medium it is.

The graselle method again, this time with an obscure cartoon character. Probably never heard of them.

What I did different this time was three different layers; the base colors layer as screen, the enhanced shadows as burn, and then the muting color as multiply. Really loving the results.

EDIT: Sorry, thought this was my art blog! I’ll leave this here anyway, but check out my other graselle method digital painting at starlightpen!
