I made a new account and new blogs. I plan on deactivating these and moving. Here:
Poison-Tongued: My new name. This blog concerns my prose, artwork, and OTPs.
Operation Villainous: This blog concerns my personal websites, schooling, and life overall.
Viciously Logical: This blog is all about my political and social views. If you followed “MouthRot” because of the shit I debated or whatever, then this is the blog you want.
That One Bullshit Blog: For all the funny or astounding shit that gets reblogged but doesn’t fit anywhere else.
Later, whores. c:
(Sorry this is so long, tumblr won’t let me un-indent all the things without messing the hyperlinks up BLUH. So press J to skip.)
I just went back through over 900 liked posts and dug out all the art tutorials so i can keep track of them. I guess this might be helpful to some of you guys, so here you go.
Some of these were gutted from posts where the original was deleted and so can’t be linked to in the masterpost list - especially one by Tumblr user melkh who has since either deleted or changed their url, so props to them.
Here we go then!
Alchemy - this is a really fun program. You play around making abstract shapes until you start to see something in them, kind of like a Rorschach test. Then you use the shapes as a base to draw it from.
MyPaint - a pretty decent painting program that also has the benefit of working on Unix systems.
openCanvas 1.1 - I haven’t used openCanvas in years but it was a nice program with a pretty unique feel to it.
ArtRage - Only used this a couple of times donkey’s years ago just before I got oC, but I’ve heard good things about it.
The GIMP - In a similar vein to Photoshop, but free. I couldn’t get on with it when I tried it out a few years ago, but it’s pretty popular and is available on Unix systems and Macs.
Photoshop - Standard painting fare. Probably the most flexible program (particularly the latest versions) but not designed to act in a “natural” way. If you’ve used it for painting versus something like Painter you know what I mean. Who the fuck pays for it though? Google “Photoshop tumblr masterpost” and take your pick.
Paint Tool Sai - Far more affordable and definitely worth paying for if you can. The brushes are very decent (especially when they’ve been tweaked a little), the gui is simple and intuitive, and I dare you to find a program with which making smooth lineart is easier.
Corel Painter - My program of choice for most things. More tools than you could ever possibly use and pretty cheap on a student license, providing that you can prove you’re a student! It’s got a few bugs but if you want realism or a more natural feel than PS or SAI this is the program for you.

At first I thought I was taking it way too seriously, but my fiance said he heard the same thing I heard with this guy: He’s implying with his joke that if we lived in a society where everyone was gay but him, and humanity was dying, he said he would save it “one female at a time”.
He’s implying that he will rape lesbians and force them to get pregnant for the “betterment” of humanity.

So, I’m in Distance Learning for my Psychology course this semester with my fiance. One of the requirements for doing this online is to participate in the “discussion forum topic” each week. This is week one, and I’m already causing some shit, lol.
I’m going to post the screencaps of others, but this guy was giving his opinion on “Abstinence” classes and I responded. I commend him on his effort to project his defensiveness onto me as if I was the one offended … but it doesn’t quite work when it’s obvious that he is the one offended when blew past my whole argument to him, and he nitpicked ONE thing I said in response to someone else.
What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
Oh, my God. This is beautiful.
