This is a pretty basic one, but that doesn’t make it any less important to know! I hope it helps. …
this made more sense than my colour class in college…

WELP. I have new techniques to try now.
I was going to post a tutorial on how I color, but these people do a cleaner job of it with almost the exact same techniques, so here’s this.
updated with enkana’s source!
I am entering the final phase of being done with projects
still not done but I can smell the end, the end is in sight. smell.
Who is sleeping now, not me
hi crev ty for understanding my bad life choices
#and for the record#tagging this #c: mako mori #because that easy neck slap #pointed out by vrabia#that hand plant #that take down #THAT IS MAKO MORI SHIT RIGHT THERE#AND I WILL KEEP REPEATING IT UNTIL EVERYONE ACCEPTS IT AS CANON#RALEIGH BECKET GHOSTING WITH MAKO#AND CHUCK KNOWS EVERY FUCKING UGLY SECOND OF IT#AS SOON ASTHE FUCKING NECK SLAP COMES#HE KNOWS JUST HOW DEEPLY HE IS SCREWED #MAKO’S TECHNIQUE#RALEIGH’S STRENGTH
I have seen people try to analyze Raleigh’s fighting style in this scene
and I just sit here
muttering to myself
"It’s not Raleigh’s fighting style."
#Even with a ton of training #it just wouldn’t be in the hand-to-hand combat lexicon of a six-foot-tall man #to TUCK HIMSELF INTO A BALL AND SOMERSAULT ON ONE HAND #in order to take down his opponent. #This is the technique of a MUCH SMALLER HUMAN BEING. #Someone who is accustomed to using people’s height and bulk against them #not someone who already has height and bulk to his advantage. #I will give you three guesses as to whose technique it actually is. #HINT: she is standing in the background of the first gif with her fists up #thinking to herself ‘Do the thing Raleigh. Do the thing.’ #DISCLAIMER: Hannah is not a martial arts expert. #But this is no fucking joke legit exactly the kind of thing my mom taught me #about controlling a situation and turning perceived disadvantages into the fucking endgame. #The year I ran rock camp I asked my parents to teach the self-defense workshop #and my mom is 5’2 and my dad is 6’2 and at least a hundred pounds heavier #and she showed every girl at camp how to make themselves into a fulcrum #and bring down big-ass scary dudes #and never in my life shall I forget when she asked what other advantages we have #and a girl held up her drumsticks #and Mom took one and proceeded to jab it into Dad’s pressure point. #A FUCKING DRUMSTICK. USE WHAT YOU’VE GOT OKAY. #This got hella rambly but suffice it to say that I am #and always shall be #stanning Mako Mori 5ever. #OKAY ONE MORE THING #THIS IS THE KIND OF MOVE THAT COULD SNAP A BONE #IF YOU DO IT JUST A TINY BIT WRONG #BUT RALEIGH DIDN’T #HIS ONLY OTHER NON-JAEGER FIGHT SCENE WAS CUT FROM THE MOVIE AND INVOLVED HIM SLAMMING A GUY’S HEAD INTO A BEER CAN

Already lots of great advice in comments!
Rosianna is my assistant, and she is very very very very good at her job, and one of the reasons is that she is never afraid to call anyone ever.
Honestly, if you are starting out in ANY CAREER, the ability to call strangers without fear is one of the most useful skills you can have.
That said, I can’t even call for a pizza without anxiety. I’ll be like, “But what if they don’t want to talk to me?” And Sarah will be like, “It is a pizza delivery company. They are excited to receive calls, as it means they will soon have money. Their business is to receive calls,” And I’ll be like, “I don’t know. I don’t want to bother them.” So yeah. Listen to Rosianna.
the thing is though i dont think i’ve ever met a single dude who genuinely made an effort not to be misogynistic but still actually takes offense when a woman says “urg, men”
and pretty much every white person who is able to recognise and unpack their privilege gets what i mean when i say “urg, white people”
and straight people who are legit supporters do not get huffy when i say “urg, straight people”
and like im cis, but when trans people say “urg, cis people” im not horribly wounded
because when you’re aware of the system you also understand that it’s not about you
and i understand that nobody hates me for being cis, they hate the power that i have over them because im cis (or light-skinned, or able-bodied, etc)
like remember that quote that was like “no, i didn’t say all white people, but since that’s what you took away from it, yes, all white people”? pretty much, the more angry and confrontational you are about blanket comments, the more those comments are directed at you
which makes them a really convenient and effective thing
