For reading an excellent review about it , please read the very cool and full article wrote by Alexandre Prokoudine on Libre Graphic World , he also made a cool video.Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new features2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here I will focus on writing a review for Mypaint 1.0 user, to let them know what changed and how they will benefit from it.
On Canvas Notifications
Now Mypaint is a bit more talkative when you press '+' or '-' on the keyboard to zoom with the 'Control+Space' shortcut. It was difficult back to Mypaint 1.0 days to have an idea of the actual zoom level. For the future development , this box system was made to be reusable ; so Mypaint might have better and better visual feedbacks on the next versions.The notifications are activated by defaults , and concern for the moment only

Ladies and gentlemen, 15 years ago, two men created the first episode of a show that has touched the hearts of many. This...show protrays the faults of society through four young boys.
and Eric Cartman.
On August 13, 1997, Matt Stone and Trey Parker gave the world "Cartman gets an Anal Probe."
This started a legacy.
The first episode to a lasting show.

Thank you to Kyle, Stan, Kenny, and Cartman and theyre adventures which kept this show alive.
When did we decide that......the best way to view a GUI is on an angle, mocked up on an iPhone screen, with epically shallow depth of field?When did we decide that...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't care whether or not it's an app designed FOR the iPhone. If you take a photo of an iPhone on an angle with low DoF, absolutely ANYTHING will look good on it, even a pure white screen. I shit you not. The details and reflections in the phone's body make up at least 90% of the visual satisfaction, completely taking focus away from the actual GUI. "But it shows how it would look in the real world." No mate it doesn't. My human eyes don't have the DoF of an expensive Canon macro lens, nor do I use my phone holding it at a 45 degree angle, and sat in the middle of a professionally lit photography studio. When I buy food, I don't need to see a picture of somebody eating it.
On the flip side to making otherwise hideous designs look like the most amazing thing ever, a photo mock up also makes truly beautiful design look like crap. If you've spent days on end hammering away

Korra, Book 2 Update & this week's EpisodeBill Rinaldi (Martial Arts Coordinator / Videographer / Production Coordinator/ and Doorman) just updated us on what is happening on book 2 of Korra. They have finished ten episode storyboards of Book 2, and are now working on the Season Finale. They said season, not series by the way. They are really coming together fast on season two. We will see something on Book 2 later in the year. But right now, one thing that is important to all of us is that if we really would like a BOOK 3. Then, we need to show Nick that we love Korra, and we want more. If the show does well then maybe. Keep up the blogging, the E-mailing, the fanart, the re-watching of old episode, the phone calls to nickelodeon asking for more. If they see that we want more, they will give it to us. So, keep it up.Korra, Book 2 Update & this week's Episode3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

Drawing anxietyFor the last 6 months or so I have had great difficulty drawing anything. I sit down with a clean sheet of A4 paper, hold my pencil completely filled with lead, surround myself with reference materials, but nothing comes out. I keep thinking and thinking about what to draw or how to draw it, even though I have the complete scene or animal pictured in my head. After a while and a few tries, I just give up: it just doesn't want to come out..again. It has gotten so bad that over the last month I don't even want to try anymore, even though I desperately want too. Just the thought of making a drawing again, and fail, again, causes so much anxiety that I give up. "It's not worth it" I convince myself. Every time.Drawing anxiety6 years ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't know what it was that I felt, until during a conversation my girlfriend brought up her pre-test anxiety. She told me that she is OK when it comes to test-day, but that the whole period before that is hell. Throughout that time, she fills her head with doubt and uncertainty.

Lumi, a first previewHey ! :]Lumi, a first preview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've made some new changes on Lumi, my future Visual Style for Windows 7. It will continue to change in some details, and it's certainly not over yet, different parts are still the one from Soft7.
Anyway here's the actual result :
White isn't it ? ^^
My main ideas were :
more "minimal", less transparent, and add a tiny color.
The window on top left is active, the others are inactive (mainly a difference in the shadow, but the windows themselves are a bit more transparent).
The "Yes" button is hovered, like the Music icons. The DVD drive is selected
I believe the caption buttons are too subtle right now, and I'm still trying to do a nice hover effect, subtle but visible.
It includes the new icons on the Navigation Pane, obviously based on the icons in Mac OS Lion, entirely made from scratch (all of them) with the subtle blue of the theme.
By the way, don't get it wrong, I hardly have time to play all t

"To answer your question, yes. Yes I'm technically queen. "Princess Celestia" just rolls off the tongue better since you have two 'ess' and 'suh' sounds in alternation. Queen Celestia just doesn't do it for me; I may as well call myself Windowless-Free-Candy-Fun-Van Celestia."
"I sense the show's ratings are at an all-time low. I'm sending Derpy to eat your mail box while Vinyl Scratch plays dubstep in the background so Luna can appear and do a head-spin. I'm also sending you a new mailbox. It'll have the words 'Beware of Dawg' with your silhoulette underneath it."
"Ever noticed how the number of stallions slowly grew as the show progressed from episode 1 to 52? At this rate you'll all be the 'MAN 6' by the time season 8 hits."
