Welcome to ILLUSIONS~REAL ILLUSIONS , a k a BLACK VOW~


hello and welcome to my humble hovel (lol) if you didn't know, my name's Mist, a GIRL, if you will =A=;;
I work with PS (CS3 if you were wondering) but I used GIMP when I started, so I suppose that I could help with GIMP users as well, but I think you would do better to sign up for Katie's GIMP class
.
'Kay now please note this: I don't care if you're a n00b or a pro, as long as you are actively participating and do assignments (and other stuff, of course) I will accept you.

of course, I can't allow you youngsters to run WILD can I? so there are some ground rules to be covered...

1) You will refer to me as Mist or Mist-sama (the 2nd is preferred) >8DD
2) Although cursing is allowed, please don't be rude to others. Likewise, if your gonna curse, don't bother to use asterisks or anything. example: S***! <--wrong Shit! (hopefully, everyone knows what the 'curse words' are. don't wanna be responsible for corrupting little kids =w=)
3) Try to be on time when doing homeworks / projects / tests. If you're gonna be on hiatus, please inform me by quoting or PM'ing. or else I'll be blaming yah.
4) Don't be offended if my constructive criticism is a bit...strong. I'll try to word it nicely. So rest assured: if you suck, I won't say it directly~ ^_^ hehe

I THINK that's about it...


Things that I offer here at Black Vow:
- homework, projects, and tests. of course, there will also be exams... o3o
- if requested, tutorials
- possibly PRIZES for future mini - competitions c;
- maybe more stuff, if I can think of stuff haha x3

: GRADING SYSTEM :
- your gfx will usually be rated on a scale of 1-25, with 1 being the worst, and 25 being the best
- constructive criticism will always be given, whether you want it or not lol
- whoever has the most 'points' (the score of all their gfx put together) will get a prize at the end of the term, which I would say...June 22nd? It'll be after I give you guys your exams >83
- exams will be graded out of 100, tests will be graded out of 50
- you may get extra points for handing in your assignment, while you may lose points for handing your assignment late

by the way...I'm obsessive about KHR. So I will permit talk about the latest chapter of KHR in this thread. no spamming though. also, I also happen to be a fangirl of Vocaloid. just saying... Other than talking about KHR in this thread, only talk about GFX. you may post questions for me and other classmates to answer. and tutorial requests.

so hopefully, you read all that up above. the sign up form (or whatever you wanna call it) will be in the next post. don't worry, I don't bite ;)

you can start by doing the homework and stuffs ~ don't worry, the due dates are all written, so it should be enough time c: if you need more time, I can extend it (:
and yeah, Love is War is PRETTY awesome ;DD did you hear Fye's fancover of it? it's really good :3
some TIPS for you right off the bat:


✲overall, all you need to do is use more colorings, maybe use more textures in your edits and use some different fonts. that's about it, my friend! consider yourself rated 75/100 of pro-ness for now 8DD

thanks for joining my class, dear ;3 OMG, I love your name~ Eris sounds so exotic lol :DD
you can start doing the homework~ hopefully, I've give you PLENTY of time to do it 8'DD but if you need more, just tell me (:
and YEAH c; TSUNA = AMAZZING.
for Vocaloid songs, start out with the common ones: for Hatsune Miku, Love is War, World is Mine, Melt, Last Night Good Night, Rolling Girl, The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku~ those are pretty common. if you want some REALLY nice ones, you'll have to look 'em up yourself ;DD but I can recommend you more lol :33 some well known songs for other Vocaloids are : Just Be Friends - Megurine Luka, Meltdown - Rin Kagamine, SPICE! - Len Kagamine, Cendrillion - KAITO. there are tons of Vocaloids, and they have duets sometimes too~ so yeah. Vocaloids are pretty amazing lmao x3
NOW! onto the gfx ;DD I think you edit pretty well with simple edits; you need to work on using more textures and decorations in your works :3


and that's it <3 if you need any help, ask and I'll be happy to answer (:

thaanks for joining my class Alice-chan ;DD
OMF YES. TSUNA IS THE ULTIMATE UKE ISN'T HE? =3= (hopefully...you don't hate yaoi lmao orz) and yeah, FANFICS :33 love reading 'em too, except I only read for KHR , Naruto , and a couple of others.
and youuu are supremely PRO. 8DDD
EXCEPT in one area....your text ; A ;
in MOST of your samples, the text is just not cutting it : / I think it would help if you used a white outline around your text because...I dunno, black outlines just don't look as good as white outlines lol x3 and of course, keep the outlining to 1 or 2 px. maybe use some stronger color effects / psds / actions on your works; the one with the 'hazardous' text on it is kind of plain...and it took me awhile to read the text D;
that's about it, other than in the last sample (the banner) is a bit plain as well, try adding more textures to some of your works ;DD
YOU MAY BEGIN ON YOUURR HOMEWORK THAT EVIL MIST-SAMA HAS GIVEN YOUUU ;33 if yah need more time for anything, tell me ~ I'll extend the deadline... o3o be warned, if you hand it in late, you ish getting minus points...

hello again, Marvin-kun ;3 your grades are posted in the spoiler in the students & grades post ;DD
you finished all the work rather easily lol xDD you're definitely improving. I like the coloring you used in the first avii, but her hair is a bit too bright lol. maybe you could tone that down a bit? otherwise, it looks really good. don't particularly like the coloring used in the second avii, again, too yellow. and it's also a bit plain to me, it looks like you only put a couple of textures on it and left it oAo;; loved your project to bits though <3 ;DD you didn't have to do both the banner and avii haha xD you could have only done one; whatever, gave you some extra points for that. I think your rendering is pretty good; the legs and the right edge of her skirt are a bit choppy but that's about it~ I liked the banner alot, but eh. I don't know...something feels off to me (again) so that's why I didn't give you a 25. OMF I LOVE THE AVATAR. c: it's very pro Marvin x3
and about the fonts thing... if I have time, I'll put some up ~ probably not by like if it's good for grungy gfx or cute gfx, it's up to you to decide 'cause sometimes you can use one font for two different types of gfx 8DD
