hi. Carolina here. 18. college student, i guess.

this tumblr has become an amalgamation of mainly random shit i find funny and occasional selfies.

some SHINee/kpop stuff, personal posts, and more random shit! feel free to peruse/talk to me.

life dream is to meet this bitch \o\

it is what it is

Each workout lasts the length of the song paired with it. So put on your sports anime playlist and let’s go!

You don’t need ANY equipment for this routine - heck, you can do this in bare feet and pajamas if you want to! It doesn’t take much room, either, so it’s perfect if you’re stuck in a tiny dorm or otherwise small living space.

Try to rest as little as possible between each move to finish when the song does. If you find yourself wanting to quit, don’t give up! Remember, Onoda didn’t quit when he had to pass 100 other racers to reach the rest of Sohoku, and neither did Seirin when they were facing Yosen and it seemed like all was lost. Push yourself to be the very best you can be!

PLAYLIST

Cardio: Yowamushi Pedal - "Be As One"
Strength: Kuroko no Basket - "Fantastic Tune"
Freestyle: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club - "Rage On"
Launch: Haikyuu!! - "Tenchi Gaeshi"

And if you’ve still got energy left and feel like you can keep going, feel free to hit the bonus round:

Cardio Burnout: Shingeki no Kyojin - "Guren no Yumiya"

It’s not sports anime, but you will feel like a total badass who can slay Titans by the time you’re done.

seong asked : hey! I love those pencil sketches you did! thought they were actually traditional and you had scanned the images. I was wondering if you would mind sharing the settings? I would really appreciate it!

space-cops:

no problem!!! 

a couple quick notes w this tool

  • i use the minimum size setting between 12-30%
  • use the density setting between 80-90%
  • use the paper texture between 0-30%

I also work on VERY LARGE canvases, with very small brushes. as you can see it looks a lot less like pencil up close there because of that. just keep that in mind!! i think if you’re going to use smaller canvases, you can just decrease the settings to get better results!! 

thank you so much! 8D

Anonymous asked : Hello Petite Madame! You are an incredible inspiration to me, both as an artist and as a generally pleasant friendly person! I would like to ask, what would be your top 10 most important pieces of advice for artists?

petite-madame:

Hi anon!

First, thank you so much for your kind message and seeing me as a source of inspiration. It’s always awesome to receive this kind of feedbacks ♥

Second, you opened the Pandora’s Box with your "10 most important pieces of advice". I wanted to answer quickly but as people often ask me about this, this post will become my super big definitive resource to the question "P-m, any advice?" alongside this one. It’s long, it’s just MY two cents on the topic (YMMV, if you ask another artist, the answer will maybe be different) but I hope it will help. (Just remember that I am French, so sorry in advance about the Frenglish). Let’s go!

***

1- My NUMBER ONE ADVICE, sponsored by Captain Obvious: PRACTICE. I will never repeat it enough! There’s no magic recipe or spell. I tend to find sayings boring but "Practice makes perfect" is (unfortunately) true. You have this post floating around that shows the evolution of some fan artists’ works through the years. These artists didn’t reach this result because they drank a magic potion or something but because they worked their asses off so practice, practice, practice. Never stops.

 2- Follow tutorials (because practicing is good but you have to practice in the right direction). We are in 2014, you have TONS of resources online (you little spoiled brat!), on websites like Deviant Art, YouTube or even on Amazon if you prefer/can afford books. If you start directly on a piece of paper without knowing any basic rules, you’ll end up drawing a guy that vaguely looks Mister Magoo whereas you wanted to draw Dean Winchester in a sexy pose. And YES, there are rules (anatomy, perspective, colors, etc..) and YES, knowing them is important. It’s like driving a car. You learn about the Highway Code and how the brakes and the clutch pedal work before hitting the road. If you jump behind the wheel without any knowledge of all these things, you are gonna end up straight into the first wall in front of you.
