why the fuck do Capricorns get 24 years! i must….
just for the 16 years…
This just described my life (libra)
so accurate im scared??
This is really accurate omg I’m a cancer and I’m only reblogging cuz I don’t want 12 years of badluck
Only reblogging because it’s extremely accurate (Cancer)
accurate to my life I just don’t want 12 years of bad luck when I’ve already had bad luck
Pretty spot on
I’ve had 21 years of bad luck. I’m not risking seven more. Also, it’s accurate for me, cancer
I don’t believe in this kind of stuff but this was pretty funny.
How ridiculous. Not the description. That was pretty spot on, but the bad luck. That’s ridiculous.
Hehe, so this is my end of an “art trade” with XvSpitfirevX. I hope he likes it.
The user XvSpitfirevX on DeviantArt, also known as Forsaken’s Kinky Place on tumblr is a scammer and liar. He extorts free art from artists under the guise of art trades. He also hides any comments which attempt to question this, or call him out on it.
Any user who is considering an art trade with XvSpitfirevX should be aware that you are being scammed.
Sorry for the long post, I just think this is pretty important information since this user is a disgusting scumbag who’s wasted the time of dozens of people. If I can prevent even one person from wasting their time then it’s worth it.
This actually happened on this account.
Just a heads up.
Just a quick PSA.
ppl who only talk about problematic behaviors like racism and sexism and homophobia when they wanna talk about how mean ppl on tumblr are to cishet white guys
hey ok so i’m not super mad about that post anymore but it’s still bugging me and color theory is my favorite thing so i figure i’d talk about it a little bit.
basically, red/blue/yellow is a simplification of how color mixing in paint works. there’s a lot of science behind color that i’m not going to get in to, but in simple terms painters strive to recreate “true” colors via pigments, using both natural (cadmiums) and unnatural (quinacridone for example).
a really good way to study color theory for traditional painting is with this book but it is super pricey. there are plenty of free online resources as well. imo the best way to get really, really good at digital color is to study traditional and train your eye, so you aren’t relying on palettes or color picking all the time.
basically i’ll break down cym vs rby.
i apologise for the shitty quality of these photos but the colors are true enough to life so.
i’m using holbein brand primary cyan/yellow/magenta, they come in a little mixing set and they’re very good for beginners who want to get into gouache.
please note that not all brands are created equally; if you’re using student-grade paints or blick brand (utrecht brand is okay but not stellar) paint it will have a lot of filler and not much in the way of actual pigment and thus, the quality of your colors will degrade.
i recommend winsor & newton for gouache, holbein is good too. marie is a very good tube watercolour brand. basically if you want to really get into painting, be prepared to drop serious dough.
anyway as you can see there’s a very basic color wheel. it’s pleasant to look at, sure, but the purple is a bit too dark and warm. CYM are all very warm colors so you won’t get a satisfying range of cold and warm out of them.
and here’s a color wheel i made for r/b/y. i didn’t bother w/tertiaries bc i didnt want to use a lot of gouache ahah.
now here’s where it gets complicated:
these are all of the colors that make up my mixing set.
see how i have two of each primary?
that’s because one pigment is cold, and one pigment is warm. i use pthalo blue, flame red, and lemon yellow for my warm pigments, and ultramarine, alizarin crimson, and permanent yellow deep for my cool pigments.
to make the “true” primary red, i mix a little of flame red + alizarin crimson. to make purple, i miss alizarin crimson (cool shade) and ultramarine blue (cool shade). to make green, i use pthalo blue (warm) + lemon yellow. (both tones of yellow are warm, however lemon is higher key than permanent and thus works better for a vibrant green, while the permanent makes a good, deep orange).
if you mix a cool tone and a warm tone, you will get very greyed out and muddy colors.
for example, the second swatches of orange and green and purple you see were made by mixing incorrectly; that green is lemon yellow plus ultramarine. that orange is alizarin crimson and permanent yellow deep.
a note on the purples: that purple does look very muddy, yes; i havent ever had much luck tbh with gouache and purple, as it’s a very finnicky medium. i think the best i’ve ever gotten was mixing magenta from the primary cyan and then a touch of ultramarine bc magenta is already basically purple.
now remember that this mixing set, i made myself based on researching primary pigments in gouache; some may not like my palette but it works for what i do:
in the above the only CMY color i used was magenta (again, works better imo for purples).
what am i driving at with all of this?
painting is a complicated process and to try and simplify it down to “NO MIXING W R/B/Y IS HARD, USE ONLY CANDY COLORS!!!” will make you have really weird, washed out and high key palettes. If that’s your thing, cool, go for it!! But don’t try to act as if hundreds of years of color theory development suddenly don’t matter.
study color theory, experiment, refine a palette that works best for you.
(as a note, a mixing set for acrylic would be:
cadmium red, quinacridone magenta, cadmium yellow light, cadmium yellow medium, phtalo blue and ultramarine blue. (to make the best purple ever, lots of magenta, a touch of ultramarine blue and the tiniest dab of white- ultramarine is a super heavy pigment so you gotta be careful!)
and if anyone has questions or just wants to talk with me about paint and color, feel free to!!! i love color so much and i love to talk about it, and remember that i am not word of god- i am and will always be a student!
That man you see there, he is a 92 year old veteran from Norway, who was tortured by the nazis during world war II.
The upper picture is the picture of the “BOY London” logo, that’s so popular now days.
Then, on the picture under, is a known symbol that were used under by the nazis in World War II.
Now you can all think of what you’re really wearing.
finally someone made a post about it, everyone’s running around with the Third Reich Eagle on their chests
think about it
yes make it known. nobody ever talks about it.
The long awaited.. PRINCE AND THE PRINCESS…
My final project for my book arts class. Hope you enjoy ;o;
omg i was at starbucks and there was this girl and she had her hair in a bun and had a crop top with flowers on it and i hissed “hipster blog” and she turned around and snarled “fandom blog” and then we shook hands and exchanged urls her tumblr is pretty nice i dont see why there’s a rivalry we’re all wasting our lives on the same goddamn website
Favorite story of the morning
lets all remember when nicki went over to Japan and her style choices were A+ <3
i like how Nikki is the only one who did something japan related that didn’t go bad
lol its because nicki actually understands the style and ADMIRES it unlike those condescending fucks who wouldnt know kawaii if it bit them in the ass
I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start.
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will.
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue.
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.
The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.
Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:
CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only.
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.

friends are nice to have
even if all they do is listen
For Nona Faustine the restitution of her sense of wholeness as an African American woman and artist manifests in the guise of a restoration of the past, emphasis on guise. Although we see her marching up the steps of City Hall in Manhattan with nothing on but her white Sunday shoes and a pair of shackles in her left hand…she is not really trying to restore anything. It took me a while to realize it.
Her on-going photography and installation project Reconstructions is precisely that – reconstructions that attempt to replace something that was lost in the history of Blacks in America. This should not be confused with an attempt to relive the past through reenactment. Faustine’s images are more are like markers that indicate a place, an institution, an event or a person so that with her presence on that spot she does not merely remember them for the sake of remembering, she rewrites a new history for them. There on the steps of City Hall’s Renaissance Revival facade that abuts a slave burial ground or standing on her soap box at the intersection of Water and Wall Streets where a market once trafficked in humans, she is the fearless daughter of them all, the new Venus of Willendorf reborn to reconstruct a history, the ultimate act of fecundity.
Faustine easily acknowledges the impossibility of getting at what is essential with this task she has set for herself, because to reconstruct a history is an altogether different action than to restore one. Hers is not an attempt to historicize the present but to re-write the past. She did the research, discovered who bought and sold black slaves in colonial New York, and where, and how they were transported in and out of the city. But there is no Aushwitz or Treblinka for the victims of slavery in America despite the common knowledge that an estimated 10-12 million Africans died in the Middle Passage alone, and countless others succumbed to starvation, physical abuse and disease once on these shores. In a way the images function as memorials that she makes herself, one at a time, with her body, the naked truth of its blackness braced against a cold city, reconstructing a narrative where the enslaved has dignity and is not afraid.
THIS IS IMPORTANT. THIS IS ART. THIS IS IMPORTANT. THIS IS ART.
this picture of kyary looking like shes plotting lady gaga’s gruesome demise is honestly so important to me. you go kyary i hope they never find the body
