EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
I get so sad whenever I think about this.
This is actually me
Like four or five people in a skype call last night told me I was hot???
You areee //flies away
YOU ARE TOO THOUGH
Either that’s a really good reaction, or a really bad one. Not sure yet. :’D
ABOUT DAMN TIME HE HEARD IT FROM OTHER PEOPLE
THANK YOU PEOPLE
I am looking to hire a colorist for my new webcomic The Glass Scientists!
Coming from an animation background, my art style favors simple, clean cell-shading, limited color palates, and economy of visual storytelling- elaborate, finely rendered oil paintings will not mesh well with my lineart! The value/color work for the comic needs to emphasize character acting and help each image read quickly and clearly (good use of contrast to make the important elements of a shot “pop”).
I will, however, need a colorist with a good sense of lighting for tone and setting! I will be providing lighting thumbnails (and occasionally color keys) for each shot set up, but I need someone will be able to carry that intention through to finished pieces!
You will be paid on a per-page basis at one page per week, though I may bump that up to 2 pages per week for the beginning of chapter 1 or for special events.I’m looking to start in the beginning of October.
Here are some examples of styles similar to what I am looking for: 'Kill Switch Engage', Blindsprings, and Gravity Falls. Also, please see these sample pages from my short comic Bleeding Heart for an idea of the kind of linework I do:
(Note: Since I work on the show, it’s kind of inevitable that I would look to the gorgeous color work on Gravity Falls- I don’t expect something that crazy detailed, of course, but it is worth noting that the crazy amount of variety found in GF backgrounds are accomplished with three fairly simple layers: a cell-shaded flats layer, a shadow layer set to multiply, and a simple light glow layer.)
If you are interested, or if you know someone you would recommend, send me an Ask or email me at glitterygothic (at) gmail.com ! Please include samples of your work. For my first chapter, I am especially looking for examples of night-time scenes and use of limited color palate!
Reblogging for evening tumbls!
To those who have already applied: Thank you! I am in the process of getting back to everyone right now. :)
Job opportunities await for someone who actually knows how colors work.

"mobile blogging" theme. erm… i just really like my phone. a lot. this theme is fun, the home button functions as the home button, and when you hover over it a keypad pops up which serves as your links. and it’s also really fun to customise so :’ )
