sybersfags personal blog I GUESS stuff I like that I don't want cluttering up my art blog
I’m going to assume this has happened to anyone who’s ever cuddled anyone and has a penis.

This just brought me to tears in two fucking seconds and I usually fight so hard to keep this kind of meltdown from happening.
I hate when people say that Internet-based long distance relationships aren’t real relationships.
You people don’t know anything.
You don’t understand the lack of judgement that comes with stumbling across someone online. The fear that comes with hoping that someone as perfect as this can exist. The incredible joy you feel when they prove that they do.
You’ve never come to rely on someone so much that they become the only ones who can understand why you’re so upset. You’ve never experienced such a deep yearning for someone else’s touch, that it can leave you shaking and unable to breathe at night, and the only thing that can calm you is the sound of their voice.
I can only hope that one day, I can be as lucky as these two people and get the opportunity to be able to have this moment… When I can step off a plane and see him waiting for me with my favorite flowers, and I can leap into his arms and smash them against his chest and not even care, because he’d be there with me.. And he’d be all mine.
This fucking photo set always gets me. I’m just hoping with everything I have that nothing else goes wrong and May hurries up.
If it wasn’t for the internet I never would have met my fiance. We lived over 960 miles apart from one another and there is no way we ever would have found one another because I was raised so differently from her.
But, thanks to the web I did. And we’ve been together almost six years now. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m so happy to have her in my life. I’m one lucky son’of’a’gun. Long distance internet relationships can work, if you are willing to make them. It can seem hard at first, and yes people will put it down and say its not a “real relationship” but I assure you it is, and some day you can show them that.
PS: Running into the arms of someone you love for the first time at the airport…its worth it. so worth it.

In this mini-guide, I’m going to more or less explain how the heck you apply basic light theory on your art. But with a bit more exaggerated effects.
I am going to start off by using a reference photo I took myself in a museum I visited the other day.
This is a piece of Pyrite (aka “Fool’s Gold”) which is very reflective, and is pretty cool.
I used this as a reference and eye-ball copied it. Since most of the colors are pretty saturated, it wasn’t that hard to guess the colors. (I did not color pick from the photo - unless you are colorblind, you should learn to pick color only by observation. It’s good for your artistic eye.)
Here’s my painting of the pyrite. It’s not as textured or detailed as the reference, but turned out good enough. The orange light comes from a piece of table/wood beneath the pyrite that is not visible from the photo.
The shape of the object is a nice variation from the regular “sphere” that you always see in light-theory.
Now let’s apply there light sources on a portrait - makin it shiny shiny!
But first we should look up another reference!
This picture was done by the AMAZING Virtual Lighting Tool where you can add several light sources, change the placement of the “lamps”, even add colors and all kind of nice gadgets. This screenshot contains more or less the same lightsources that we got from the Pyrite painting.
Now this time I did use the color picker - but not from the photograph, but from the painting I did earlier. This was a really fun experiment and a great way to practice shiny objects.
