How to Destroy a Child :iconmelvingaberelli:MelvinGaberelli 3 1
A Reason to Write
I'm in love with the tragic characters
the boys who are abused
and the girls who are abandoned
I crave to comfort them all
I write characters who have been raped or dehumanized
they've been neglected and ignored
or made the target of blame and aggression
they are a piece of my soul
does life imitate art,
or art imitate life?
I hope if my characters reach you,
the world will become a more loving place
please love them, support them
they represent a darker side of life
told in fantastical scenario, but they are reality
so I hope you'll fall in love with tragic characters
the boys who are abandoned
and the girls who are abused
please love them, they are everywhere
and they need you

Nebula Painting Tutorial
Trying to explain nebula painting is like trying to explain how to engineer a bridge (my other profession).  If I start at the very basics we'll all die of boredom before we get a beautiful picture. This is an art tutorial, so I will favor pictures over words.
So, lets start with a crucial idea:
The basis of realistic nebula painting is shape randomness.
I have found that my best nebula are those that I didn't plan at all, they emerged from me haphazardly spraying with a brush and then I picked out some cool shapes.
So lets begin:
Step 1: Background Stars

The creation of stars is outside the scope of this tutorial.  My method is to use a custom brush with lots of size, scattering, and opacity variation.  You can also use noise layers to create a quick starfield.
For a quick guide to stars, see this: Stars from Noise Tutorial by For-as
These stars are painted on a black layer set to Linear Dodge.

Feeling bad because I haven't had time to update on here, in like, forever! (Especially bad because I haven't been able to reply to hlwar's note...) Things have been insane here, with opening our business, and having to move from where we were living :roll:, amongst other trivial and annoying things. And now, I have to get back to work... :'( Will hopefully find time to get something a little more cohesive done soon. :fingerscrossed:

13 Things About Moi!

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 16, 2016, 6:39 AM
  • Reading: Red Seas Under Red Skies - Scott Lynch
  • Watching: Despicable Me 2
  • Playing: At life

I got Tagged! :boogie: So, here goes!

1. You must post these rules!!!
2. Each person must share 13 things about them.
3. Tag 13 other people.
4. Yes... Tag-backs ARE allowed.
5. Answer the 13 questions asked about you, and invent 13 other questions for the people you tag to answer.
6. No saying, "I'm sorry! I don't do tags!" (Or something along those lines...)
7. Be creative with the title!
And last, but the most important...
8. Have fun!


Okay, here goes… 13 things about me, in a most unappetizing form, ‘cause I don’t have the motivation to find any neat .gifs, or musics… (‘cause that would be cool, too, but I’m not cool… :no: )

 1 I have a Jack Skellington, holding a dreamcatcher, and riding a Nekobus. (There’s some trippy fandom shit!)

 2 I don’t do phones, for reasons. They’re good reasons.

 3 I try not to bother people by commenting on stuff and just end up alienating people, ‘cause they think I’m not interested.

 4 I hate the word ‘I’… It’s so self-involved, and one tries not to be. (But I guess this whole thing is somewhat self-involved, simply by it’s nature, so I guess I’ll just have to use it. Sounds less pretentious than ‘one’, but more self absorbed. No winning here. :roll: )

 5 I’m wondering why there are only 8 rules for 13 things. Not really a thing, but I am wondering. :?

 6 I’m not the smartest. I’m struggling to think of things, already. I have 20 Pop Vinyl characters, that’s a thing, I guess.

 7 I love glitter.  GLITTER by elicoronel16 :D (And the stars...)

 8 If dreams are the illustrations to the book my soul is writing about my life, it’s gonna be a fantasy story. The pictures are going to be way better than the actual story. Waaaay better. Much more colorful and exciting.  My soul obviously has problems with the truth! :nod:

 9 hlwar is my oldest and bestest friend, in the sense we’ve been friends for ages, since we were kids, really. We were pen-pals when we were teenagers.

10 I’m re-watching Firefly at this very moment. :sing: You can’t take the sky from me… :sing:

11 I’m a princess. (Of the spoiled brat variety!)

12 I spend a great deal of time second guessing myself, and back-tracking on things. I’ve deleted half this post at least twice now. I waste so much time being unsure of myself.

13 I have 4 cat companions: Sir Alexander Inkybottom (Lexi), Mr. Hopkirk Whiskers, Smudge, and Bob.


Questions for anyone who wants to do this:

 1 What is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?

 2 If you could become anything, what would it be?

 3 Your favorite restaurant/cuisine type?

 4 If you could live anywhere (real or imagined), where would that be?

 5 If you could do anything to improve your world, what would it be?

 6 What are the movies you like the most?

 7 What is your favorite book type?

 8 Do you think we should colonize other planets, and would you be willing to take a ‘one way trip’ to do so?

 9 If magic were real, do you think it would be a good thing, or a bad thing? What would you do with it?

10 What is the one skill you would like to master?

11 If money were no object, what would you do?

12 What scares you?

13 What is the funniest thing you can think of?


Questions from hlwar :iconhlwar: answered:

1. How do you feel when someone Tags you for memes? Do you enjoy answering them?

To be perfectly honest, I feel like a dork, ‘cause they always call for tags, and I just haven’t got anyone to tag anymore. All the folks I used to tag have all run away and I feel like I’m burdening already busy people if I tag them. That said, I don’t mind doing them, if I have the time. They can be quite fun! :D

2. If you could go back in time and visit any historical moment or era, which would you choose and why?

Ummmm… I don’t know. I guess it would depend on the terms of the ‘visit’. If it’s a brief glimpse, no interaction kinda gig, I would love to see the forming of the world, or the moon, or dinosaurs, or so many cool things. If it’s a ‘live like they did for a day/week’ scenario, I’ll just stay right here, thank you very much!

3. How well do you work under pressure or with a deadline?

Depends on the situation, and how much I have invested in said situation. I’m not too bad if it’s something that doesn’t really matter in the scheme of things, but if it’s really important, I go to pieces.

4. Rate and briefly review the last three (3) books you read.

Last book I read - The Raven King : Book 4 of the Raven Cycle by Maggie Steifvater. It was a good conclusion to a brilliant series, about the search for the tomb of a lost medieval king who could magically grant a wish to the finder, a  magical journey with vivid and likeable characters. :star::star::star::star::star:

2nd last book - The Lies of Locke Lamorra by Scott Lynch. I really enjoyed this book about a band of thieves in an ancient and mysterious glass city, and their exploits. I would love my stories to have a feel like this series…:star::star::star::star::star:

3rd last book - Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman. Brilliant sci-fi with a unique format, a fast paced story full of intrigue and treachery. …:star::star::star::star::star:

5. Rate and briefly review the last three (3) movies you saw.

Last movie - Now You See Me 2:star::star::star::star::star: Sequel to Now You See Me. I liked it, it had magicians. :no: I suck at reviews!

2nd last - The Dark Crystal:star::star::star::star::star: Classic fantasy. Love this movie about a Gelfling trying to re-unite two pieces of a magical crystal to bring harmony to a broken land.

3rd last - Circle:star::star::star: Bit weird. Aliens and human prejudices mingle and end in death.


6. If you were told you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

This actually happened to an acquaintance of an acquaintance last week. He went to the Dr. feeling unwell and was told he was going to die that day… Creepily, he did. :? I think I would spend all my remaining time with my boyfriend and our beautiful cats. I would write him a letter to tell him how much he means to me, and apologizing for being a useless, worthless girlfriend, and screwing over more than half of his life.

7. What do you think of social networks? (Feel free to specificy and review the ones you use.)

I guess they have their uses. Not being big on the whole social thing, they’ve never really bothered me that much. I use Facebook to keep up with a couple of old penpals, I have a Twitter account, which I never use, ‘cause, like, Twitter… :roll: They’re all just advertising, trying to get money out of people. I have no money, so they aren’t really interested in me.  I have a Tumblr and Google+. I had a Neopet up until yesterday when I needed to log in to change my password and couldn’t remember and got pissed off with their bullshit, and flagged it. :shrug:

8. When you were a kid what did you dream of being when you grew up; and has that "career path" changed now that you're older?

I always wanted to be a writer. I thought it would be a nice, solitary pursuit. :no: I was stupid. Writing isn’t a solitary thing. It’s all about blowing your own trumpet and interacting.

9. Favorite cartoon when you were a kid?

I don’t remember… :no:

10. Do you have any goals (short or long term, dA or not) with your art/writing/creative pursuits?

I wish I did. I need to start actually having goals a wee bit more dramatic than ‘Get up’ and “Get dressed’.  I would like to get better at everything, art, writing, craft work… But I’m not sure I even can anymore.

11. Which animal do you think you're most like, that represents you? Like a Totem animal, I guess.

I’m afraid that would have to be a lazy old cat. :giggle: I wish it could be something a little more majestic, some sort of falcon, or raven. Maybe even a magpie… But I think, cat.

12. Why do you Watch me? I'm just curious...

Babe, I watch ya ‘cause I love ya! :tighthug:

13. If you've seen Young Justice, what do you think of the Runaways?

 I haven’t. :no:
