Default a pinch of salt


a little flavor, a little creative release


Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to my my little corner of Gladrags where I share some of my creative corner of SnitchSeeker where I will be sharing drawings, digital artwork, completed coloring pages, and essentially whatever happens to be tickling my 'artistic' fancy in the moment. I've had several graphic request shops over the years and currently have a joint portfolio with the lovely Ern (Cassirin) as well as a grab bag challenge. This is not a request thread, but you are more than welcome to drop a suggestion or a wishful thinking ~vibe~ I do take formal requests via PM for various things (namely graphics & manips), so feel free to contact me in private should you so desire.

Manips are so hard, especially to get the correct lighting and tone and just make it all look natural. But you do such a great job with them! And I love those messy teens lmao

inspiration Hogwarts SSRPG characters Baylen Brown (mine)
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

Baylen is a character who I had at Hogwarts for Term 47 & 48, though only as a secondary character and he was never posted in the school forums (just Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade) and previously attended Durmstrang. He is a dancer and it has been his passion ever since he was crawling. However, because we all love some angst, in his final year at WADA he experience an accident during a final showcase rehearsal that landed him in St. Mungo's and with both knees barely functioning and in need of serious reconstruction healing to be followed up by a year of rehabilitation. He, therefore, graduated a year late (2099-2100 school term) and switched his major from a dance focus to one with more of an emphasis on choreography. This showcase was a representation of how he saw himself fitting into the history of dance as well as his own emotional journey with it, accumulating in his first dance post recovery as the final number. 'Shift' was a word that stuck out because he was forced to do a lot of that in light of his injury, not just in practical reasons for how he had to live day-to-day, but also in his way of thinking and how he approached life in general. Every totally obliterated a Gryffindor with their own passion? It's not a pleasant experience

This poster was a lot of fun to make (please ignore typos and pass them off as Baylen being too excited about this, please and thank you ). It's always a lot of fun creating things like this for characters (myself and others as well) to add dimension to the RP This one in particular was really special to me because I got to involve so many others with this showcase, even if we just headcanoned things. In order of appearance on the poster: Tempest Zunther (Stormdancer), Rhea Durant (natekka), Lucas Choi (kayquilz), Rose Kennedy (MunchyBubbles), Wiremu Webb (Tegz)

Hardest part of this poster? The font I spent what felt like FOREVER finding a font that fit his aesthetic and then sort out the appropriate spacing.

You're my manip tutor, and this is exactly one of the things I struggle with - the matching of quality of photo, as well as light and shadow and coloring. You're so so good at figuring it out, and yours looks so good up there.

As for Baylen's poster, I love everything about it. It's really believable as an advert, and I love the juxtaposition of the color and black and white. Pretty pretty pretty.

thank you MJ ;____; that one in particular was a bit of a challenge and I almost resorted to just making it all black and white (which is usually my go-to when I can't get coloring to match decently enough)

I try my best, Ern. But that one you were (are?) working on of Derf and Chloe is so nice

THANK YOU! I was especially proud of the composition and got lucky with a few things. Definitely a multilayered process. That rainbow base with the dancers is all one piece...save for the ballerina's which I added and really everything else is based around that central image. It was just...too Baylen not to use. Thank you Google.

inspiration Hogwarts RPG homework assignment (Arithmancy) [tba]
materials pencil, paper, & some version of Adobe Photoshop

I found this while going through my old Photobucket and I sadly have...no clue what term this was for or even the specifics of the assignment other than it was obviously to draw a picture of a number include symbols it represents. Perhaps also how the number is associated with the character because that astrological sign depicted in girl form there is a Taurus and that's Kurumi's sign. Jess?

Other than that

I remember this piece being one of the first I did using the stroke option for some line art (see that ~sparkly~ curvy line of white wrapping around the number one) as well as being one of my earliest attempts at doing line are in Photoshop and coloring using Photoshop. I have never owned any fancy digital pens for drawing digitally, so it's all me using a scanner to scan my pencil drawings and then going in manually with a mouse/using line tools and then warping those to fit the line art. AKA...things that take several hours to do (man I had time back then ) I think the ruby turned out best in this image and I know I used some reference photo or followed a tutorial online for how to shade...which is why it turned out so lovely compared to say...that hair

inspiration Create This Book by YouTuber Moriah Elizabeth, my least favorite produce ever (tomato) and something I find creepy (tarantula)
materials Ohuhu alcohol markers, printer paper, & copic black 0.3 & 0.05 inking pens

Part two of the comparison prompt (part one here), this one was harder to select colors for. I basically pulled out about 12 colors based on my swatching and then closed my eyes and picked four from that pile to decide on which colors to use - and they turned out to be a VERY Easter-y palette. Just like with my least favorite colors, I wanted to do a comparison within a comparison and drew two of my least favorite things. My 7-year-old gave me the tomato idea and then I was going to do a rhinoceros beetle but my dad suggested a spider instead. Regular spiders (especially the tiny ones) make my skin crawl a bit too much so I settled on a tarantula instead

One thing I was asked about was why the printer paper when I'm doing these prompts for a literal art book. Answer is rather simple and that is that the Ohuhu markers bleed through this sort of paper very easily and this is something Moriah Elizabeth herself suggests in her book instructions as well as does it herself in her own YouTube videos.

All in all...very pleased with how these came out and it was a fun little exercise. Rediscovering drawing/color it one of the few things keeping me sane at the moment, so very very grateful for this outlet.

inspiration SSRPG characters Nigel Barrington (oh its Erik ok), Ascanius Stark (pundantic), & West Odessa (Tegz)
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

I remember making this for a specific purpose but upon rediscovering it semi recently I do not remember WHY other than recalling how I slaved for hours and hours over trying to find just the RIGHT font and getting frustrated that I could not and then I think I just locked this up and threw away the key...only to find it again now several years later

Not much to share in terms of process with this manip other than the black background was a choice because I recall HAIR being an issue and making the background black so I could just use a brush to fade out the mask layer over each character instead of going in with a 1 px brush to try and isolate every single strand of flyaway hair was a thing. Dark helps with the whole wrock vibe anyway.

inspiration SSRPG characters Barbara Finch (Star Lord)
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9; fonts: champagne & limousines, little sparrow

A private request from Lulu for her character. The base image of Alisha Nesvat required no altering what so ever (minus a mask layer to soften up the edged a bit) and the colors I essentially swatched from that with the addition of a gradient layer I set to color to give it that green - turquoise coloring. You can see my layers used for this project here.

Kath! I missed your TDK graphic, and I love the gothic rock boys feel. Even if you had to do it to hide the hair... it looks like a DECISION.

As for the Barbara graphics you just posted, the colors are SO GOOD. I adore it. You're so good at coloring.

inspiration a page from Adult Coloring Books Good Vibes: Don't Give Up
materials ARIES Oil-Base Color Pencils (72 pencils set)

A couple of years ago it was suggested to me that I give coloring a try as a means of unwinding and centering myself. I hadn't considered coloring since I was in elementary school so I was a bit skeptical BUT I decided to give it a go and ordered a few adult coloring books per SS member Angie's suggestion and tacked on a few others that spoke to me and got myself a nice set of colored pencils just to dip my feet into things...and I am so glad I did.

Today I spent close to two hours coloring in the above image while listening to an audiobook. Conceptually I mostly went with colors I enjoyed from my set, but I did plug a bit of symbolism into things. A green gradient for "life", the word "hard" being in black and grey to mimic steel somewhat, "view from" in yellow with a bit of a halo around it to be the sun, and then "the top" a blue sky with clouds. For the embellishments around the words I went with a rainbow gradient which was really fun to experiment with blending colors together.



I dedicate this page in the memory of SS member Connie who recently passed away. She was an incredibly kind and humble soul who contributed so much to the fanfiction community here. Just like all us, she found a little corner of the internet to turn into her creative playground and will be missed.

As for the Barbara graphics you just posted, the colors are SO GOOD. I adore it. You're so good at coloring.
It DID workout nicely. Sometimes dark colors are a life saver when it comes to these things. They hide mistakes and waffling with layers and everything

you sure know how to make me blush, Ern

Thank you for posting a pic of your layers on that graphic, btw. So helpful for PS novices like me. That set is amazing and so are you.


You are HARDLY a novice, Ro. GOSH! But I remembered seeing someone do this same thing on Livejournal BACK IN THE DAY so I thought I'd do that too

Eiji Rasting through the years










inspiration SSRPG character James Eiji Rasting (mine)
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

Something I started with my previous school character was creating a template for their profile pictures used in bios for site that would remain the same in aesthetic while the image of the character themselves evolved over their years at school. Eiji, my first second generation character, has been at Hogwarts since his first year but I only played him on site since his fourth while I finished up the latter half of my Hufflepuff. It's fun to see the evolution of your character

Krzysztof Zamojski






inspiration SSRPG character Krzysztof Zamojski (mine)
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9; fonts: Prometheus

Instagram has been very...VERY kind to me recently in suggesting people to follow (how I discovered several of the older faces for some of my characters!) and Angelo Carlucci (you're all welcome ) is someone I'd been following for a while now and was recently enable to create a dragonologist character. This, of course, also meant some new signatures.

I have no layers to share because, honestly, all I did was add a gradient overlay (set to overlay) on the second signature and the rest is all the original image unaltered or simply mirrored. The selling point, for me was the rediscovery of my Prometheus font which goes SO well with the lines of his tattoos. It is very rare I end up using a font that I feel happy with (can spend an hour going through fonts and and combinations before just falling back on my usual go-to's in defeat), so this was a really happy accident I stumbled upon while scrolling

Yay, graphics sharing! Font selection is terribly persnickety, and you're always really good at it. How many fonts do you think you've downloaded? What causes you to go 'shopping' for a new one instead of using one that you've already got?

...I probably have over 500 fonts saved at this point. I used to have more before my laptop went to digital heaven and the internal memory damaged so I couldn't remove it to recover things.

I honestly check out dafont every now and then just to see what pops up on their recently added fonts and...that usually starts the spiral if I like something also sometimes I will be making a specific graphic that I feel requires a certain KIND of font (like comic book or handwritten) and I go browsing...and then am basically like someone who is going to the grocery store on an empty stomach and download 50 new ones at a time and yet...I still always fall back on the same 3 at any given time. Those main three may rotate in and out depending on what my aesthetic is feeling at the moment

Dementria Floros














inspiration SSRPG character Dementris Floros (TakemetotheBurrow)
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9; fonts: Quentin

Ashley requested a set for her aspiring fashionista and designer so after taking an excruciatingly long time going through the FC's instagram and much commentary from certain character voices over my shoulder, these were created. Again, I really did not do much with the original image because the coloring was so nice already. Just a couple of adjustment layers to help heighten the warm tones and accent the pinks. One thing I often struggle with, on top of picking out fonts, is then what color to make them. For this set I used the eyedropper tool and selected some pinks from her lips until I found a shade I liked and was not too dark (too much contrast) or too light (hello, no canz read) against the grey-silver background.

siggy rotation


SPOILER!!: as of 20 APRIL 2020

All signatures were made by myself unless otherwise specified
  1. (made by Roselyn)
  2. (made by Roselyn)
  3. (made by natekka)
  4. (made by Incantation)
  5. (made by Roselyn)
  6. (made by BanaBatGirl)
  7. (made by BanaBatGirl)
  8. (made by BanaBatGirl)


inspiration SSRPG characters belonging to moi
materials Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 ... mostly. Some predate my purchase of this software and I cannot speak for the other graphic makers <3

Recently I was asked about the siggies in my rotation (please check out the Gladrags forum and specifically the submit your signature thread for how to do this if you're curious!) and if I would post a master post of sorts in here to share. Almost all my brain babies are featured here and are, for the most part, active - there are exceptions but I like the siggies too much to remove them. I have a check-list of siggies I still want to make so this number may grow in the future and some may shuffle out of circulation as the characters continue to go on with their lives without me
