Adobe Hacked (AGAIN!!)
Hey everyone! Please pass this news along:
Adobe was recently hacked again. If you have an Adobe account with them, please check to make sure you were not damaged by the recent attack.
Seriously, recheck. Having your account taken by someone’s selfishness is frustrating and harmful. Thanks.

That gif animation you displayed where they’re in martial arts class?
It looked like 4 drawings to animate the roll back and hit the mat for the majority of those students. The fourth one was to have their arms bounce up after hitting the mat, while the rest of the body stayed in the position of the 3rd drawing.
Now, drawings are different in terms of frames - so the frames could be on twos or ones (I can’t tell at this moment..but I’m sure through Photoshop, one can find out).
Still, fun to look at animated gifs and look for these actions. :)
Case Study for Not Forgotten.
1. The idea hit me very late the night before I finalized the illustration. As many may (or may not) know, Mrs. Krabappel is going to be retired by the show’s producers, which is an extra piece of sad news for me (first being the passing of Marcia Wallace). This sparked my idea of having both Brian and Mrs. K together, knowing they have done well on their time of the shows. I sketched it in ink pen (as I tend to do nowadays).
2. Inking part was not hard at all. It’s always been my favorite part of the process. This was inked in Adobe Illustrator with a Wacom Intous.
3. Next came coloring, and I have to say that’s when things start to slow down. Coloring is not my strong suit, but I do try my best. I saved the Illustrator file as a pdf, and opened it in Photoshop to color. As I was coloring, the battle between Should I Shade or Not came up. I kept rooting to NOT shade this illustration…however (as you see with the wings in this stage) I could not do the characters and fans justice if I left it with flats alone. There needed to be extra life to it.
4. Which brings us to the final state of shading and finalizing of the image. I think the hardest part was shading the clouds, in how I would want them represented. Everything else seem to flow together, and at the end of it all, I was pretty happy with the results.
What I didn’t know was how many people would enjoy this piece as well. Which I am still humbled, and happy. Not for myself, but for these lovely characters who touched our hearts and lives.
Thanks for reading these thoughts, I truly appreciate it. - Contro (Tres Swygert)
Why keep anon on then? I’ve just kept anon off since I joined. unless someone’s out to be a dick, they shouldn’t mind their account being known for a serious discussion. Or least they can ask for a private reply instead of a public one
Sometimes I get questions from anons about art and other things.
So yeah, would seem to be easy to turn it off…but it would discourage those who do use anon the right way. Plus, I don’t mind referring people of what Anon should be used for…and that’s not to be cowards.
If It’s Something Serious
If it’s something serious you need to tell me, as a serious discussion on tumblr through Ask….
please please please do NOT use Anonymous.
I am sure that option is nice to use so you don’t feel embarrassed or anything, and sometimes I can understand that. However, I automatically ignore and delete those messages. I don’t engage in arguing or debating with people who won’t show up as themselves.
Not saying this as a threat or to be rude - I really rather have a conversation with the person bringing up a valid point, not a random individual who I don’t know.
Because, I don’t think I am the ONLY person on tumblr who feels this way. I’m sure there are others who would rather know who the individual is, and respectfully respond to your voice, instead of wondering who the Anon is that is trying to start a fight they won’t show up for.
Lord, I put up with Contro for years
I shed so many tears…
And yet you didn’t left
you’re still here
to hear my ridiculous words
and verses through yo ears! :D
