Hello guys! 
I’ve got a portfolio update! :D 

I fell in love with Krysta Rodriguez and her performance in The Addams Family Broadway Musical a few months ago… and I thought it would be fun to explore my own take on the Addams Family… and well… here it is! haha xD  

This truly was a learning experience for me because I can clearly see how much I need to improve and how far away I am from where I want to be.. However I’m glad I pushed myself to go outside my comfort zone! It was well worth it.

Lastly, I wanna thank my amazing teachers/mentors who walked me through this process these past few months! I owe all I’ve learned to them <3 

I will be posting Part 2 of the portfolio shortly so stay tuned! 
OR you can check it out at LissyMarlin.com if you want :)  

Thank you guys <3

(via This Chrome add-on lets you copy and erase text inside any image on the web)

What would you say if we told you that it’s possible to copy, translate, edit and even erase the text inside any image you find on the internet? Well, you can, and it’s a lot easier than you might think. All it requires is a new browser extension, called Project Naptha, made by developer Kevin Kwok. It uses a number of optical character recognition (OCR) algorithms, including libraries developed by Microsoft and Google, which quickly build a model of text regions, words and letters from nearly any image.
Once installed, you simply hover your cursor over available image text and select it. Using its built-in tools, you can do a number of things: Firstly, you can copy your selection. This is great if you’ve been emailed a scanned document or a screenshot of an error message. For instance, instead of jotting things down and manually typing it back into to Google, you can simply copy and paste the output directly into your search bar. If an image includes text you don’t understand, Naptha also supports numerous translation services, allowing you to decode a previously unintelligible language (at least to you) on the fly. However, perhaps the extension’s most impressive feature is its ability to edit and remove text. Using a technique similar toPhotoshop’s “Content-Aware Fill” featurecalled “inpainting,” Naptha captures each of the independent colours from regions around the text and intelligently fills the space where it used to be. It’s not perfect, but it certainly beats having to open a dedicated image editor…

oh
my
god

Anonymous asked
why are you a feminist???

scorsece:

because people are still asking that question

because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal

because of this:

image

because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)

because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult

because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky

because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations

because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’

because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end

beCAUSE OF ARTICLES LIKE THIS

because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.

because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

because how can you not be

Wheel of Time triple commission - status: APPROVED! Yay! A big thanks to Andrew who gave me a great deal of artistic freedom and was very patient with me as I toiled along on his project, (and who I wanted to make sure was happy with the end result before I posted the final images, no matter how much they were burning a hole in my pocket).

Some time ago Andrew contacted me and asked if I could do three character concept portraits in the same funky aged concept art style I had used for some of my original characters (this one in particular). Now, here in lies the challenge…in spite of my love for all things fantastical and adventurous, I’d never heard of the books. (Sacrilege, I know!) They are on my reading list, trust me. So I relied on Andrew’s descriptions, paired with a few images he felt properly portrayed certain aspects of each character. Then I scoured the interwebs for excerpts and sample chapters and anything I could dig up that would help emulate their personalities (and fell in love with the story in the process). So to you, loyal WoT fans, I humbly bow. I hope I have done your beloved characters justice. I did take some artistic liberties as I did not want my vision to directly copy anything from another artist. That’s not to say the idea hasn’t been done before, but it is always important for an artist to make his or her vision his or her own. I hope you enjoyed them, and thank you for looking. ♥

Pencil & Photoshop, final size is 9x12, museum quality giclee
As this is a commission, I will not be selling prints of these three pieces, though there will probably be more WoT art in my future.

This is wonderful, and welcome to the Unreasonably Attractive Fandom (that is to say, the WoT fandom here on Tumblr). :D We’re so glad to have you!

In the 7th grade I had a class where we took a personality test and then we were separated into groups based on our results and my group was just me and two girls and our personality type was described as “mystical” and then one of the girls got expelled for huffing Axe in the bathroom and the other dropped out of high school and disappeared off the face of the Earth.

You’re next.

But what’s a “low” GPA! My professor said a 3.0 and above was okay to list. Truth?

Your professor is correct, 3.0 and above is fine to list. This applicant lists a GPA below 2.5 and would be better served leaving it off. In fact, GPA was not requested.
