How to: ColorAs a follow up of my "How to: Anatomy" journal that was received so well by the community, I will continue this series with a how to on color.
Color is considered to be one of the hardest subjects when it comes to art. Most beginners (and even some advanced artists) struggle to get the colors of their work right. I myself do as well. This journal is by no means a full coverage on how to color. It will however be a good list of resources to get you started on this hard subject.
A few things to get started
There are a few things to color
There's hue and value. Hue determines what place in the color spectrum the color is in (red, green, blue.. etc). Value determines how dark or light a color is. In order to understand colors, you have to know how to influence and work with both of them.
Your brain is deceiving you
Rely on Me (Gaara x Big Sister!Reader) Ch. 12
Temari and a genin from Konoha, Tenten, started to fight once Hayate had announced that they were allowed to begin. During their battle, you noticed the glances Temari would throw at you from time to time. You had your suspicions, but they still needed to be confirmed. You decided to let it slide for the meantime.
Once the fight has ended with Temari as the winner, she immediately approached you. You looked at her in askance, wondering what on earth had made her want to come to you. You took a cautious step back as she got closer.
Temari grinned before lunging forward to hug you, catching you by surprise. Kuro was unceremoniously knocked off your shoulder, making him caw in annoyance before he decided to settle on top of your head instead. Your eyes widened.
"O-oi!" you spluttered, grabbing her arms to pry her away from you, "Let go!" But your younger sister was attached to you like glue, refusing to let go no matter much you struggled; instead it had the opposite effect because her gr

❤❤SPECIAL CHAPTER: The Necklace❤❤
“Is onee-san awake yet?”
“Ssst! You’re too loud, Bakankuro!”
“Gaara is waking her up! MOVE!”
Someone was shaking your shoulder gently. Your face scrunched up in annoyance at the interruption of your beauty sleep, and you rolled over to your side, trying your best to ignore them. You wrapped your blanket around your body, and snuggled into your makeshift cocoon, sighing in contentment.
“Nee-chan! Nee-chan, wake up!”
You groaned softly, swatting the intruding hands away. “Go away... Mm... Five more minutes...”
The person standing above you huffed, and began to shake you awake once more. “No! Nee-chan, wake up! Yashamaru told me to get you downstairs!”
“Eh...? Yasha... maru...?” you mumbled, cracking one eye open. All you could see was a blob of red... Gaara? You carefully sat up, rubbing your eyes. Then
Corruption (LokixReaderxJoker) One-ShotThe sky was an onyx oyster and the moon, it’s pearl. You were hunched over a typical Manhattan building; your hood up and mask on. You were like a gargoyle watching the people of the city; waiting for any signs of danger. Ever since the attack of New York, you had developed a bad habit of doing this. Whenever you weren’t watching the city, you felt on edge. You felt as if something could go wrong at any moment. Steve and Natasha had tried to help you many times to fix this habit of yours but to no avail. Your boss, Director Fury, was aware of your situation and kept trying to coax you into taking a break from work but last time you agreed to it, you spent the week nightwatching the city.
The attack on New York had left you damaged.
So many lives had been lost that day and you couldn’t help but feel that that would have been different if you had done something.
At the time, you weren’t the hero that you were now. You had been a rooki
I've Got You (NatashaxReader) One-Shot
You were sitting in your bedroom with Natasha sitting behind you and braiding your hair while you watched TV. When Natasha came home from work, she hadn’t said much to you about how her day went. You assumed it was the usual secret spy stuff that you weren’t allowed to know however even after you had moved into the shared bedroom, she hadn’t uttered a word to you. Yes, she offered to braid your hair but that was about it.
“Nat is something on your mind?” you asked worriedly.
Her fingers combed through your hair.
“No, why do you say that?”
“Nat don’t lie to me,” you chided her. “I can tell when something’s up. It doesn’t take secret assassin skills to figure that out.”
“Don’t worry, (Name),” she grinned. “Everything’s just fine.”
“Is this your first time?” Clint whispered in your ear.
You both sat down on the cushi
Makoto x Reader |Inexperienced|
There wasn’t a person in the world Makoto Tachibana couldn’t squeeze a little conversation out of. He was just too friendly; Even Haruka Nanase couldn’t resist his open, positive demeanor (that sounds a little homodachi but hey, no shame). Makoto was pretty happy about this, and was sure he could convince anybody to come around. So imagine his excitement when you showed up in his class that semester.
(Name) (Last Name).
Makoto was sitting next to Haru as usual, going over their notes from yesterday’s lecture. The room was fairly loud, the collective murmurs from dozens of college freshman bouncing around the broad, spacious walls. They were so caught up in the petty conversations none of them noticed the doors being pushed open down below.
“Makoto…” Haru said softly, gaze completely focused on the doorway. Makoto, who’d been trying to help Haru go over the notes for the class, frowned when he realized his friend wasn’t even pa
Roses and Steel (Lightning x Reader)You and Lightning were training in the beautiful green land that was the Archylte Steppe. It was a necessary step ahead on your journey with Hope, Snow, Fang and Vanille. Training with Lightning was quite intense, as she was quite serious when it came to battle. Wielding the bowsword she had designed for you, you ran across the water. Your blade met with Lightning's gunblade in a Froststrike. She countered with a Sparkstrike which you then parried. The water splashed as you jumped back and fired a Firestrike arrow which was then also countered with a bullet from Lightning's gunblade. The water's colour is pale in comparison to her eyes you thought to yourself. Lightning's eyes were a beautiful, crystal blue. To be honest, you thought everything about her was beautiful and amazing.
You didn't realize you were standing idly in the water, lost in thought, until Lightning charged at you. Your reflexes were slow, however you still managed to block her melee attack, but the bullet y

A Typical Day (Edward x Reader x Roy)
______ sprinted through the hallways of the State Military building while balancing a stack of paperwork in her arms. They were meant for Colonel Mustang, and if she somehow manages to lose them, even a single leaf, her head will be sliced off her shoulders in an instant.
... Okay, that was exaggerated; but seriously, who wants to face the Flame Alchemist's burning fury (no pun intended)? Believe it.
When ______ rounded a corner, the Elric brothers showed up at the end of the hall, conversing with each other. Edward had his arms casually crossed behind his head. Both Edward and Alphonse were unaware of her running straight towards them. She gasped loudly.
"EDWARD, ALPHONSE, MOVE!" she shouted, startling them. Edward turned his head, his golden eyes widening as he saw ______ charging in his direction like a bull. He didn't move and simply stood there with his jaw slack.
At this point, the girl knew that she would not be able to stop herself in time by looking at how fast she was going.
The Truth About HufflepuffsHufflepuff: The Nearly-Forgotten House of Hogwarts</i>
In the Harry Potter series, there are four separate houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, the house representing courage and justice. Ravenclaw, representing intelligence and wisdom. Slytherin, representing ambition and resourcefulness. Hufflepuff, representing loyalty and tolerance. Each of these houses embody important virtues. So why do many people assume that Hufflepuffs are useless?
I recall the Sorting Hat song which mentions Helga Hufflepuff's statement "I'll take the lot" when the other founders revealed what virtues they would value in their students. I feel that this statement by Hufflepuff has been vastly misinterpreted by many fans of the series. As the importance of blood status has always been a major issue in the Wizarding World, to the point that that Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin (who were great friends before founding Hogwarts) came to resent each other
