It’s not that we don’t want other countries presence here in Brazil. It’s just that I believe it will be REALLY dangerous. The police are not even distinguishing Tourists from Brazilians who protests. They even entered a public park (to where protesters ran not to get hurt where tourists are known to spend some time) and started shooting with rubber bullets guns, ignoring at first that THERE WAS A JAPANESE COUPLE WITH A LAP CHILD VISITING before going to the Confederations cup. After the Trauma of spending some time of panic in the cross fire they FINALLY were rescued by the police. After that they decided to go back to the hotel instead of going to the cup. And I believe they won’t EVER come back.
Now imagine how it will be in the World Cup? and the Olympics Event??
We cannot guarantee anyone’s safety. The governors say the contrary what is a great lie. They are risking YOUR LIVES to lure you here and get all the money you could spend at these events.
Are you really planing to pay to see that? After the news running around the world I wouldn’t.
making jokes about justin bieber’s gender is problematic for a multitude of reasons
- it’s misogynistic because you’re making fun of him for looking feminine
- it’s transphobic because you’re making fun of him saying “you can’t tell if he’s a man or a woman”
- it’s homophobic because you’re probably comparing him to a stereotypical butch lesbian
it wasn’t funny to begin with and it’s still not funny
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
I made a walkthrough of my process for drawing faceted stones! Judging by the timestamps from the screenshots I took, drawing this one stone took an hour and three minutes, although I know I went and checked tumblr a couple times while I was working, so let’s just call it an hour.
Now MISCELLANEOUS NOTES
- This walkthrough assumes you already know how to use layer masks, the clone stamp, and the lasso tool. There’s also one part where I didn’t label it, but I inverted the selection so I could keep my lines consistent. It’s in the third image.
- Unfortunately I can’t really help with colour choice and the actual colouring of the pinwheel shape that makes up the back facets, but you can kind of see that I tended to colour with lines that cut across the facets and and kept the outer parts of the facets darker. It would probably be best to find a reference to work from!
- This particular cut of stone is called the ‘brilliant’ cut.
- There’s actually a lot of internal reflection business that goes on in a stone, but I elected to ingore all of it since at a distance you can’t really tell anyway.
