Madly in love.
Don't let the name fool you. This blog is my organized-mess of fandoms and personal stuff.
I'm a bit frustrated artist, but I may have my moments of happiness and post something up to show you guys my lack of abilities.
I tag almost everything, just saying.

Dawn (Sylveon), Morning (Espeon), Midday (Jolteon), Day (Eevee), Afternoon (Leafeon), Evening (Vaporeon), Dusk (Flareon), Night (Glaceon), and Midnight (Umbreon)!
So of course I had to draw them. uvu <3

Writing with Color: Description Guide - Words for Skin Tone
We discussed the issue of describing People of Color by means of food in Part I of this guide, which brought rise to even more questions, mostly along the lines of “So, if food’s not an option, what can I use?” Well, I was just getting to that!
This final portion focuses on describing skin tone, with photo and passage examples provided throughout. I hope to cover everything from the use of straight-forward description to the more creatively-inclined, keeping in mind the questions we’ve received on this topic.
So let’s get to it.

These are more rarely used words that actually “mean” their color. Some of these have multiple meanings, so you’ll want to look into those to determine what other associations a word might have.
Something a little different! I’m Currently taking a CGMA course in the Art of Colour and Light and feel like posting the past 3 weeks of assignments! learnt sooo so much in 5 weeks & still have 3 more weeks to go! I recommend this course to the fullest if you’re thinking about it. My instructors are Ryan Lang and Ty Carter.
This was week 3- materials & lighting.
