Finally I had time to sit down and take proper picture out of this one! This is actually last year’s doodle that I liked and forgotten because darn you final project 😹 and this may be inspired by @paka_senbye’s mafia au. Only difference is mine’s a one eyed emperor au (that I wanted to write so bad but I can’t). .
For this one, I actually tried Ishida Sui’s pallette from one of his many Kaneki illustration and… I like it! It’s completely different from what I usually try. Such a breath of fresh air! I’ll definitely try it again next time. .
P.s I was definitely watching Scarlet Heart while doodling this 😹
Another old art repost. Sorry I still had nothing new. Inspired by @_verdigo_’s beautiful pieces. .
Screwed up the white pen pretty bad there. Every single line I made always split and it’s just terrible. Threw it away since then, and it’s better. Maybe it was a bad batch? Anybody has the same experience? .
P.s This is kinda “cheap art supply challenge”. My supplies here: pentel watercolor, zebra sarasa hot pink, uni-ball signo white, tombow play color ash brown and sakura gelly roll gold. Forgot the brand of the brush but I remember it was cheap too :/ (cause I’m cheap af hahaha)

“Kaneki, why are you crying?”
Any Tokyo Ghoul fans here? 😁
If not, I’m sorry for always posting about them (but you guys should read this masterpiece).
This piece… every single thing that can go wrong during coloring it happened. Well, it’s actually part my perfectionism, rustiness and inability to control my watercolor.
The first time I colored her skin, she looked as if she had contracted Hepatitis, so I left. But a couple days ago, I found jer again and oh… she’s not so bad… so I continued. I’m glad I managed to hold on and finish her though ^^“
P.s Still thinking about Kaneki’s face across her… ah… I just love them so much 💕
P.p.s I just used whatever post it available. Sorry it’s too big

Finally finished this doodle. I’ve drawn this since last year, but never got to finish it cuz… final project.
P.s I don’t remember exactly why I chose ginkgo. I think because it represents longevity and endurance? Cause at that time in TG re: Hinami was *spoiler*

Been a long time since I actually posted something. I’m glad to say that my Final Project has been finished since February. Then… things got the better of me irl. Well, that and I’ve been thinking quite hard about how to post my drawings? I’ve always been more active on ig. For quite a while I only had my personal account there, but I don’t want to mix my postings here and on my personal account on ig.
So, I decided to make a new ig account for my arts. It’s currently filled with only my original arts, but I’ll try to post more fanarts there too. Soon, hopefully. It’s @gryffeearts, from gryffee-ndor lol. Please head over there if you want to see more of my arts 😊
Thank you so much and I hope to see you guys there ❤
An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional ‘housewife’ role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes referred to as female samurai. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna bugeisha. (x)
Here I am at 2am talking about sharpening on anime gifs with about 10 hours sleep, never thought i’d be talking about sharpening like this but alas, i’ve seen 1 too many gifs like this so I thought about bringing it up.
Sharpening, a wonderful tool to help your gifs look nicer. Unfortunately theres literally everyone in the community abusing it. I’m not really sure why people don’t actually notice this issue, or just turn a blind eye to it, but the issue with gif-makers over-sharpening their gifs is quite real. I’d say about 80% anime gifs made nowadays are over-sharpened, at the very least from what i’ve seen going around its about that percentage. So let’s get into it!
Here is a normal anime cap
nothing wrong with it, just a normal cap resized to 540px by 304px, the standard tumblr gif size.
Here is the cap sharpened and surface blur added
looks nice right?, not too sharp, no white halos around the lines and it makes the lines stand out just a little bit.
Now heres the same cap with the same sharpening and surface blur from the top example, except this one is sharpened a bit differently, I won’t say whats different about the two but the lines stand out more in this cap, overall looks nice and allows the gif to look more pleasant.
This is not what I see on tumblr right now. What I see is sharpening done to the extreme.
Like this example
this cap right here, is over-sharpened to the max, the lines are so much thicker and edgier and all the little details that really shouldn’t be shown are brought out. This is not how it should look like at all. Sharpening should not be this noticeable on gifs/caps/edits, sharpening is just meant to be a small enhancement to the gif not be the entire gif itself.
Here i’ve pointed out some things to take into consideration when sharpening, look at the highlights and shadows, they actually have gotten solid lines on them from the sharpening, this obviously should not happen, so when you go to sharpen next time look at your shadows and highlights and make sure you don’t make them look like actual lines. Basic tip is just sharpen 150 by 0.3, most of your gifs should look fine with that setting. (But you can obviously fine tune it for every gif)
right side is obviously the over-sharpened side and left side is the nicely sharpened side, the difference is huge. Left side is so much more natural and smoother while still retaining a bit of sharpening to it which makes it look great. Right side is just a huge mess with shadows and highlights being clearly visible and the whole thing just looks edgier and messier really.
Sharpening is just an enhancement, like surface blur if you overuse it, it will turn your gifs into shit and make you stand out as a PS noob really. Colouring your gifs nicely is really the only priority most people should have and should try learn better. Sharpening it this much will not help you make better gifs. There’s also the topic of other filters but i’ll leave those for another day.
P.S I’ve done it before too so don’t feel too down if your only noticing your sharpening now, i’ve had to spend months trying to figure it out but hopefully this will help you realise the difference much faster than I spent time figuring it out :)
EDIT: removing read more as my blog blurs out the images a bit which renders the advice useless LOL
I’ve received information from my older sister that she saw something amazing. What an idiot. (By the way, it looks like she’s at level 11 now.)
#this is crazy #pokemon go#ishida sui #ishida sensei too cute #this is exactly why i always wear sunscreen #once i took a photo and walks under the sun at midday #and it was incredibly hot #but thankfully the sunscreen protected me well #while the other girls faces got sunburned #moral of the story: ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN PEOPLE
Most people probably saw it already, but here’s some of the posts from yesterday translated. Bold text means it’s someone else and not Ishida talking. His answer is added to that with an /.
Looking forward to the Pokemons in Fukuoka. I’ll make an appereance as well.
Good evening. Pinsirs are all over the Nanakuma Train Station(‘∀’*) / Pinsir! This is interesting… Thank you!
There’s a Bulbasaur in Osaka! / Too far away!
The Ōhori Park’s full of Pikachus, Sensei!! / What did you just say…
Here you go. [The image below was attached to this.] / Not erotic. [Alt: Not lewd enough.]
Got a Pikachu and a Chaizard at the Ōhori Park! / I see…!?
Wow…! I’m having trouble at the gyms…
My sister found a Ivysaur. I feel so stupid. (By the way, I’m at level 11 now)
There was a Pikachu at the Ōhori Park. I’ll get back to work.
Looking at his progress in like 8 hours (and I’m pretty sure he didn’t walk around playing PG for that long), he either spend a good amount of cash on this or he’s plain insane. Also you may meet him someday if you lurk around the Ōhori Park.
He definitely purchased the lucky eggs! Either that or he spent A LOT of incenses.
#squeeeee!!! #ishida sui#pokemon go #he definitely spends money on this game #and used his lucky egg like crazy #so happy #let's be a pokemon master sensei! #i'm currently at lvl 14 and and i've played for about 2-3 weeks already #since the server's crazy and i'm holed up in home writing my final project #or in class #also excited that we chose the same starter!!! #arghhhhhhh! #ishida sensei too cute
“This was our intention…” is actually Kaneki’s phrase, judging by the speech pattern. He says, “So this was his [Arima’s] intention all along…”
Kaneki calls Hirako just “Hirako-san”, without his rank.
”To be honest, I never did see him wear it” would’ve been better as “In the end, I didn’t get to see him wear it”.
I have no idea what “the deadman’s fingers” in the Song of Ainu they meant, but it was “Japanese yew”, from which the Ainu in the poem was carving something. “His mind clouds” is “he is lost in thought”.
“He gave me hope” should be “He entrusted to me his hopes” (he uses a verb there that means “to give/entrust something of oneself, “one” being Arima in this case). The whole sequence is weird, because it’s just a list, and the first item is “The man who killed me”. Translated properly, there’s a wonderful symbolism in the sequence: Kaneki’s mind going from the fragmented, chequered floor at “the man who killed me”, slowly filling with white at “the man who gave me a name”, and completely white at “the man who entrusted his hopes to me”.
“Thank you from watching from on high” sounds like Kaneki’s expecting Arima to be his own Mufasa in the sky, but he actually means something like “Thank you for being this aloof presence in my life”.
The checkboard that has always occupied Kaneki’s inner mind has been wiped clean. This is such a beautiful panel
This is why I really love this series. I really love the way that Ishida sensei always manages to surprise us. A couple chapters ago I was really scared about how Arima’s death gonna affect Kaneki’s unstable mind. Ishida sensei manages to deliver the impact of Arima’s death in the most beautiful way possible. Instead of making him go under another bout of depression again, it instead renew Kaneki’s resolve and wiped away all of his doubt. This chapter has just shown how Arima knew and prepared for that day even without his son knowing it. That’s seriously bloody brilliant.
What surprised me the most is the way sensei manages to put a bit of his opinion about the continuation of what happened after the end of “The Crossbreed”. That, my friend… is what I call brilliance.
“Even if he’s hollow, even if he doesn’t know of me, if a container for his soul exists nowhere else, then I will protect this person.”
I’m currently accepting aesthetic requests! feel free to request any person or pairing from SNK, Free!, Tokyo Ghoul, Ansatsu Kyoshitsu, RWBY, Noragami and any other fandoms ya’ll know I shitpost about. I kinda suck at this tho you have been warned ok bye
I have already seen some brief posts about this, and maybe someone has even written a longer post on this topic by now. (I can’t say for sure since I’ve mostly avoided Tumblr after the chapter came out.) Anyway, this post might be redundant, but I feel like talking about Arima and the short story by Kafka that he favored the most because it has been on my mind all day.
When Arima mentioned in chapter 8 that he was pleased with “A Crossbreed” by Franz Kafka, we didn’t know much about his backstory yet, so the person who fit the role of the crossbreed best was Haise. As far as I can remember, people generally thought that it would just be Ishida’s way to give us insight into the relationship between Haise and Arima, but the mistake we made is that we didn’t take Arima’s feelings into account, even though he is the one who appreciated this short story so much.
Arima has been a mystery all this time. It was so hard to guess what he was feeling, some even questioned if he felt anything at all, but now he finally shared his feelings with someone dear to him. And it turns out that cold, stoic Arima, who seemingly took the lives of ghouls without mercy, has been feeling intensively all this time. He has been suffering his whole life, being born as a half-human, nothing but a failed experiment. He was exploited as a child soldier, forced to kill again and again, and he couldn’t take it. When Arima read “A Crossbreed”, he didn’t see Haise as the crossbreed and himself as its owner. Instead, the character he related to was the crossbreed itself.
And just the same way, he related to Kaneki. They are both crossbreeds, both thrown into a life that they never chose, both waiting for death as salvation. Arima helped Kaneki survive while he was on the brink of death in Cochlea, he brought him books and blankets, he helped him find a new name, and he was always happy to spend time with him. Arima truly loved Kaneki, and he wanted him to live. With Kaneki, he finally managed to save a life instead of taking it.
Arima wasn’t given a choice in his life. He was forced to take lives, and he hated it. He hated it so much that he wanted to die, because Arima wasn’t cold at all. No, Arima was gentle.
All of the quotes from the Crossbreed make this even more heartbreaking
Had this cat, along with the soul of a lamb, the ambitions of a human being?
Perhaps the knife of the butcher would be a release for this animal; but as it is a legacy I must deny it that. So it must wait until the breath voluntarily leaves its body, even though it sometimes gazes at me with a look of human understanding, challenging me to do the right thing of which both of us are thinking.
In the end, it wasn’t the butcher’s (CCG’s) knife that was his release, but his own.
#suicide cw#tgmeta#crossbreed #dammit this hurts #i really do believe there's a reason why he wanted kaneki to admit he's the killer #there MUST be a reason why he insists they fight to the death on cochlea
