there is a point in drawing hands when suddenly they all start to look like really weird malformed alien cousins of headcrabs. i mean what
The complete set of 50 possible god tiers. Finally complete! Right, now to explain this.
NOTE: YES, YOU CAN USE THESE WITHOUT ASKING. THOUGH I’D LOVE TO BE SHOWN WHAT YOU DRAW WITH THEM. THESE ARE FREE FOR FAN USE.
I’m working on a god tier quiz to tell you your exact title with these 50, and some custom tiers, with their own hero mode sprites!
HERO MODE EXAMPLE
Anyway, here we go!
NOT synonymous with DOOM, Death works like the tarot card definition, it means change. A Seer of Death can foresee events of great change, and Princes of Death can destroy things that would cause great change.
Heroes of Shade are linked with the powers of Grimdark and horrorterrors. Sylphs of Shade help others who have gone grimdark or can allow others to see grimdark, wheras Bards of Shade destroy using the dark powers of the dark gods.
Not as literal of course, an Heir of Blaze can of course wield the power of fire, though a Page of Blaze delivers motivation towards someone as Blaze is tied in with passion and motive.
Witches of Form can shapeshift freely, quite fun! Seers of Form can see a persons true self, and Thieves of Seer can literally steal identity.
Most heroes of Depth aren’t affected by changes in atmosphere, a Mage of Depth is given visions of people’s true emotions and a Knight uses his perfect aim, depth perception and mess with people’s equilibrium.
A fairly passive role, a Maid of Peace goes around being able to calm others and stop conflict that causes issues for the greater causes of the universe, Princes of Peace destroy peace and cause conflict.
An Heir of Ground can attack with Earthquakes and has Terra-esque abilities, where a Seer of Ground can see important events that have or will take place on a surface they touch.
Mirroring the hero of Mind, a Rogue of Might is able to steal the weapons off an enemy and give them to others, a Thief of Might can steal the literal motivation to fight and go on from others to benefit themselves.
As Heart represents Soul, Soul represents the spirit of someone. A Seer is somewhat of a lie detector and to some extent a mind reader, where a Mage of Soul is given visions of people’s mental weak points. Witches are able to astralproject.
Knights can summon storm clouds, obviously as an elemental power, though a Sylph can help others clouded judgment.
As another elemental, Heirs are given the ability to freeze things and cause blizzards at will, for the more metaphorical aspect of this tier, it represents preservation. A Rogue of Frost is able to steal preservation values from one thing and allow something broken to be fixed.
Witches of Fear can allow others fears to manifest into physical entities, a Sylph can help others overcome phobias.
A Bard of Stream is able to destroy using oceans and water, and the Witch of Stream can bend water and breathe underwater.
Pages of Sound literally deliver messages of importance to others and have amazing hearing ability, the more active Knight can fight with sound waves.
Sort of synonymous with a Hero of Wish, a Seer of Star will know the directions to anywhere they want to go, a Thief of Star will take locations for their own and Witches can literally allow certain things they wish to come true to occur, though with the rule (If it’s a wish of great importance, it will take longer to happen, so it may be too late. The universe also has to allow this as nothing can happen paradoxically out of destiny)
A Thief of sense can enhance their own eyesight/hearing etc by taking it from others. Heros of Sense come in 5 different ways. Their abilities wrap around only one of the 5 senses. Which one that is depends on your character. A Knight of Sense (Sight) would be able to see far and shoot lazers out of their eyes, where a Knight of Sense (Hearing) would have the same abilities as a Knight of Sound. (See above)
Seers of Forge can see how things have been built and know what parts need to be collected to create something. A Page of Forge is able to give parts needed for others and build things very quickly.
A Sylph of Smog is able to bring clean air to someone who can’t breath for example, an Heir is able to release toxic waves of air to poison others or suffocate.
Most heroes of Tech have an astute knowledge of how things work without needing to be explained, so long as it’s electronic. Witches can attack with electricity and call upon electronics, where a Rogue can take the literal power and energy from electronic device to energise themselves.
A Knight pretty much can send out lazers of bright light to both blind and destroy others. For the passive roles, Rays is metaphorically tied in with magic.
Often gifted with good balance, a Bard of Prince would allow Grace to destroy things, an Heir is able to attack using an amazing sense of balance and a higher knowledge of the martial arts. Seers can foresee a foes next offensive move.
Princes of Grief actually help others in the sense that they are given abilities to fix things that have caused others grief, where a Sylph will often allow others to gain grief. This aspect causes a bit of a reverse in the Active/Passive rules.
A Seer can see the true intentions and goal of anyone, a Thief is able to pinpoint exactly what he/she wants and take it. A Knight will interestingly gain power only as much as they WANT to gain power.
Need is the ability to decipher what is perfect for a situation and vital for success for a Seer, where an Heir is often handed down something to allow them to defend themselves and attack.
A Thief is able to distress others and gain inner peace, allowing their psyche to calm and give them a more controlled ability in combat, Maids will use the abilities of complete concentration and peace of mind to stop paradoxes.
This is synonymous with the Hero of Keys. A Bard of Lock can destroy obstructions of progression and move forward, where a Seer can quickly see the secrets of others. A Witch is able to bind others with a form of magical glowy rope/chains. Heirs and Knights attack with these chains of lock.
Hate allows Pages to be powered by hatred and deliver misery and bad feelings to others offensively. For the active roles, it also harnesses the abilities of redmiles, inspired by Spades Slick.
A Sylph is able to allow others happiness and can literally allow wishes to come true in some sense. Heirs of Joy are able to use sunlight and beams of light as a weapon.
Witches are able to manipulate the minds of others with ease to do as they wish, where a Knight is given super strength.
A Witch can change the materials things are made from and allow their own material to change. (eg Metal etc) Knights can form their bodies into different materials to attack and a Seer can foresee relations with others.
A Mage of Night is never without energy, manipulated by the inability to ever sleep which can be a pain for their dreamselves, A more active Witch can put others to sleep and manipulate light and darkness.
A seer can gain great understanding of all things unknown and generally paranormal with the ability of dusk. A Sylph can allow others to understand and see things of a strange nature. (Dusk is when the veil islifted)
A Seer can predict new beginnings and see when to restart situations, a Sylph can fix things to mint condition as Dawn represents new beginnings.
An heir of day is handed down the ability to manipulate the light and wind to create beams of light to be controlled by the player. A Mage is given visions of the future in general.
A Seer can locate dreamselves at any point and see what others imagine, where an Heir can create things from simply imagining them.
Heirs are granted the abilities of super speed and stamina, allowing them to run on water etc.
Heroes of Pride are always fast to realise their powers. Sylphs can allow others to see their own insecurities and help fix them, also being able to healphysical deformities, a Seer has an insightful knowledge of insecurtity.
Lucky characters in general, an Heir is able to attack using beams of the colour spectrum, where Pages are able to locate good wealth and fortune and deliver it to their friends.
You should know the canon titles. So there you go!
So, go ahead and make your own! =D
Homestuck is a (c) to Andrew Hussie. The canon god tier symbols were not created by me.
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.
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.
Sketchbook copic: a bit different program
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.
expressions from different angles (love this site)
gamut mask tool (very nice!)
kuler (more colour schemes)
photoshop fur brushes (and tutorial)
Other peoples masterposts
love your fellow artist (anything from prompt generators to animation background here, very nice)
art e-books (mediafire download)
even more e-books (including human anatomy, animal anatomy, cartoons, animation, composition, design, scenery, perspective…)
criminallyincompetent (check out their #reference and #tutorial tags, they’re gold)
I love you. QAQ
Dudes and dudettes of internetville,In my spare time, I’m making a lot of looping gifs these days. I’ve been hearing from lots of folks who want to know how I’m making these little moving images. Making them has been so much fun, so I figured I’d try and share a little of what I know. Keep in mind that this is, of course, just ONE WAY of making animated gifs, so it’s hardly authoritative or exhaustive. Mostly it’s just a working method that I’ve discovered—and it’s bound to change over time. I’ll update again when I figure out some new things. “Like” my page on Facebook to check out when I’m putting stuff like this up. Also, feel free to drop a line and ask questions about whatever.
Until then, on to the show!
