Recipes for Pies and Tarts! (recipes)

Need some pie baking ideas for this Thanksgiving?! Wait no more!

mixshakestir:

Who doesn’t love a bit of Nutella in their life? These cupcakes hit the spot when you’re craving something seriously chocolatey and creamy (which I often do).  As rich as they are, sometimes one is just not enough! 
They’re so quick and easy to make that you can always whip up a batch when that craving hits! A bit dangerous really.  
Nutella Cupcakes (adapted from the hummingbird bakery cookbook)
3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp plain flour
2 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
scant 3/4 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1 egg
1/2 cup Nutella
Preheat the oven to 325F.  
Place the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer (you can use an electric mix or hand too).  Beat on a slow speed until everything is combined and looks like a sandy consistency.
Pour the milk into the mixture and beat till all is well combined.  Then add in the egg and beat till combined.  
Spoon into cupcake cases and place in the oven for 20 minutes. The cakes should spring back to the touch.  Let them cool on a wire rack.  
When cool, hollow out a bit of the middle and fill with a bit of Nutella.  
Frosting
2 cups powdered sugar
5 tbsp unsalted butter at room temp
2 tbsp whole milk
1/3 cup Nutella
Beat together the powdered sugar and butter.  You can do this by hand or with an electric mixer with the paddle attachment.  Mix till everything is well combined and then turn down to a slower speed. Add in the milk till just incorporated and then turn back up to high.  Continue beating till all is light and fluffy - about 5 minutes.  The more you beat, the fluffier it gets! 
Stir in the Nutella using a spatula by hand until fully mixed in.  Frost the cakes when they are cool.  
Enjoy!!

Useful reference for realistic killing wounds when fighting

writeworld:

This is actually a brilliant writing reference for those writers whose stories involve fighting with bladed weapons. It details killing blows, both through thrusting and through cutting. It basically operates on the premise of, “Hollywood is wrong, here’s how it really works.” A bit long to trudge through, but a lot of invaluable information for those of you who want to write fight scenes and wounds a bit more realistically than, “He stabbed his enemy in the heart, killing him with one smooth stroke!” It uses medical terminology to explain why some things work and why some things are truly fantasy-only.

A bit macabre, but a good way to pursue more realistic writing in a story that requires such details.

A friend asked how I do this thing, so I decided to make a tutorial for it! FYI, this is Photoshop CS5. Hope it helps in some way! If there’s anything that completely confuses you, don’t hesitate to ask me. :) 

Here is a fullsize version.

(This font’s exclamation point looks too much like an “L,” so I apologize for sounding too excited in my tutorial.)

Regarding the first image, the way I draw the hip area and legs in general is pretty exaggerated, I remove a lot of muscle and curve the bones. The left of each set is more correct if you’re aiming to be more realistic. 

The second image is just how I personally stretch legs into different body types. The third is one of my most generic poses and some feet. I approach the bottoms of the feet the same way I do hands and I make toes by just overlapping the little circles. The fourth image features some attempts at different positions I don’t show as much, an area I still have to work on myself.

I’ve still yet to recover from my recent lethargy, so this was all I could think to do… but I hope this is of at least some use! Sorry! :(

This is really good to look at, thank you for posting it!

Gosh I need to practice my legs/feet so much. ;;

It’s not one of my better pictures, but I made this tutorial along with it back then…In the end I wasn’t very happy with the picture itself (I tweaked it after the last part of tutorial), so I didn’t even want to post this tutorial but…

Still, I hope these are of any help to anyone learning to use Photoshop. I made this because I feel like lot of artists could use some shortcuts to get to the results they want, and I remember learning to use polygonal lasso and clipping mask layers made my process lot faster. Lot of people also ask what brushes I use, though 90% of the time I use default Photoshop brushes with my own adjustments to them.

This process may also give a hint on how to improve compositions and designs, since if you first off hone the lineart too much, it may end up restricting your creative process a lot.
