    Dodge and burn :scust

    Good you don't use them. Pick your own colors according to mood (and optics theory :ninja).

    I never use anything besides the standard round brush :hm

    Dodge and burn are helpful in some cases, just as long as you don't overdo it :maybe Like when I need a stark highlight I use dodge and when I need to slightly darken a large, already dark area in one go I use burn. Basically I use them over the existing shading for more contrast. Any tools are useful when you do it right, you know.

    Besides, Pixelmator's dodge and burn, just like its smudge tool, are pretty... soft? For the lack of better word. I remember trying to use the smudge tool in other editors and ended up with a terrible blurry, well, smudge. But here, I use it quite often to fix any "leaks" beyond the lines and it's not even noticeable.

    I never use the standard brushes anymore :catshivers Only those that imitate pencils and other things. They're better for my unsteady hands :catdefeat

    A main character from an anime called Overlord and even though new episodes already came out I wanted more teehee.. The maple leaf in the background reminded me of a scene in which he saves a defenseless girl in a forrest, thanks for asking.

    I didn't notice it either. But a maple leaf without color is just a maple leaf. Can refer to Canada for all we know :maybe

    Speaking of which, shouldn't Canada's flag have an empty stub in the winter, a bud in the spring, and a green maple leaf in the summer?!

    Why did they have to have a leaf, anyway? What's so bad about stripes?

    By the way, I never really looked into flag symbolism but I do remember that Russia's three stripes simply symbolize sky, water and earth (cause Russia is so big, you see, it has a lot of those).

    I actually like Canada's leaf. It's not so pretentious like those eagles and lions of the past, yet it's connected to nature more than the staid stripes of other modern countries.

    So big, yet wouldn't you have liked more blue at the bottom of that flag :maybe
    (that's a reference to the USSR's quest for warm water ports, for people who aren't into history)

    Our flag has five stripes in three colors, and the colors represent the people, the monarchy, and religion. It's meh. If I were to redesign it I'd incorporate some optical illusions :hurr

    So big, yet 80% of the state's budget is in Moscow :catippy An most of the territory isn't used effectively.

    ...That's the biggest political rant I'm capable of. I'm seriously just uninterested :catdefeat

    Thank you so much! Stephanie keeps giving me neg rep on my posts by 8k+ thinkin' she can get my self esteem down, luckly there's nice people out there giving me positive rep right back and it makes me feel warm inside hihi. I may be evil in her eyes just for putting her on ignore after cussing me out outta nowhere.
    Ps: I'm currently featuring @Arcuya's artwork as my ava and it's badass!
    :yes!
