Need your input for a Photoshop guide!Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you a heads up that I'm working on a super long, detailed guide to maximizing your workflow efficiency and file/layer management in Photoshop. There are also a lot of other assorted tips and tricks in there as well.Need your input for a Photoshop guide!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The reason I wanted to tell you is in case anyone had any other ideas that might be well suited for it, or if you had questions that might give me an idea of more things to include. Some of it will be obvious to some of you, but I've realized over time that things that I assume everyone knows end up being largely unknown by a lot of people.
Currently, here is a portion of what I have:
Lock Transparent Pixels
Alt Color Picking
Multiple Windows for Same Doc
Brush Resizing Shortcuts

It's so amazing to see the fandom is so devoted to the show, i mean, look a this! Look at all the fanart! It ='s hard that nickelodeon is making us wait so long for the premiere of Book 2, but for now, i think fan art is enough to fill the Korra withdraw some of us are going thru.

It's Time for our Big Contest!
Every year, DGray-Man101 holds a large contest with a variety of prizes to celebrate our achievements. This year, it's for the amount of members and member activity we have had, as well as a big!Timcanpy-sized thank you for the support in letting us keep our Super Group status!
This year's theme is:
What is "AU?"
Sounds boring at first, eh? Over-used, no? Well, hear the idea first! AU is an acronym for "Alternate Universe." An alternate universe is just as it sounds: a form of writing or art where the canonical (or official) facts of the setting or characters is changed. At it's most basic, an AU form of DGM fan art/fiction is like giving life to a "what-if" situation.
What if D.Gray-Man took place in the future?
What if the Noah were the 'good guys' and the exorcists were the 'bad guys?'

Now that our homepage has been updated, we figured it's about time DGray-Man101 got a new icon as well (despite how cute our current one is!). And so, we're gonna have a short little contest
while we mourn not getting a chapter this month!
What to Make: A D.Gray-Man themed icon for our group.
The icon must be 100 x 50 pixels & smaller than 30kB
It can be animated or static (unmoving)
Having our group name on it would be nice, but not a must

Aki Con and UpdatesI had noticed that our subscriber count on the FDP Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/fightingdreamerspro?feature=guide) account was getting close to hitting 80,000 last week but I figured that we had until after N2U before that happened.

One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.

There's a reason you feel alone.Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up." Your dad runs to your room.

Aiko appears on a variety of Ai-Kon promotional materials, including t-shirts, posters, flyers, badges, programs, and the Ai-Kon web site (http://www.ai-kon.org).

An Update on Our Current PositionHello! This is kawaii-kekki, here to tell you guys what's up!An Update on Our Current Position1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I understand a lot of you have been concerned about the legal implications of this project. Thank you for worrying! It's important to have people who are interested in this group's well being!
Our group is non-profit and we are going to make sure to give credit wherever it is due, which is why we can be called fan art. Also, according to http://www.mspaintadventures.com/salesfaq.html, it doesn't seem to be too bad, since it never really mentions an undertaking this big. However, it is understood to be common courtesy to ask artist's permission before you go ahead and do such large projects. We have emailed him and sent a message to his tumblr, which was about 5 days ago. So far we have not received a reply, but hey, he's a busy guy.
When he replies, we will be sure to post what he said. Depending on his answer, 1 of 2 things will happen. If he replies yes, we will post a picture of his reply (probably acc

Hang in their though, fandom! We may have more hiatuses than most of the other series out there, but we got loyalty where it counts!

I wish I was into like Bleach or something... Just a series with never-ending updates forever! But no,

Ah well, I've waited this long, what's another few months or so really gonna hurt me?
