Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new featuresAt the very end of 2012, the code of the famous free and open-source digital-painting program Mypaint 1.1 was released. If you still using Mypaint 1.0 , you might be interested to see what happened into this one year of change. 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 features3 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
How to make a pure UF gradient from a chartHere is a very simple way to make a gradient that is pure from a chart or a picture that you particularly like the colours of.How to make a pure UF gradient from a chart6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The advantage of doing it this way is that you don't get loads and loads of nodes that aren't necessarily needed, and the colours you pick will be cleaner looking.
1. Download and save the image or chart into your Ultra Fractal Image folder; (you will find this inside your documents and ultra Fractal folder.);
2. then make a new fractal using Pixel formula and the Image.ucl on the outside tab (both in Standard);
3. Open the little folder icon in Image and choose the chart you have just saved into there. Centre it and make the image dimension 640x640px - or whatever dimensions are appropriate to accommodate the whole image;
4. Open the Gradient window and press F8. Here you have options to choose as many or as few nodes as you wish. Between 5 and 8 nodes are most workable.
5. click the box that says Space Evenly. (This can be
Blender Tips #2It took me a long time to upgrade to Blender 2.6x as I was really used to my good old Blender. A way to make friends with new software is to explore possibilities as much as possible; here, some of the cool stuff I found (may include old stuff I never noticed before).Blender Tips #23 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't be afraid of scripts!
Blender includes many useful, reliable, user friendly scripts. Fearlessly, go to user preferences > add-ons and try it out; next to each script, links to online docs are provided.
Two scripts I always enable:
- Dynamic spacebar menu. This will especially please blender-sauruses as it brings back the spacebar function from Blender 2.4x and earlier: a convenient tools menu.
- Copy attributes menu. With crowded scenes, it will happen that you want to modify many objects at once. There is 'copy to selected' in Blender UI (see below). But the copy attributes menu does more - for example, it allows copying modifiers and/or constraints from the active object to all s
Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*From the polycount discussion over here: http://www.polycount.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113798Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get the sense that some HR people (& immigration) look at 'not working inhouse' as being unemployed - mainly because it's so hard to prove exactly how long you were *actually* working on freelance.
If I was to look at it that way, then I've been unemployed for periods of up to 3 years.
I got over worrying about money and financial problems back when I had little to no money to worry about - and I think that's helped me to no end. Life seemed to be stuck on replay when I was in that frame of mind i.e. creating stuff because I HAD to get a job. Years would go by, and it never ever worked out for me, somehow I'd always end up in exactly the same place until I put in the time to find something I enjoyed, and simply worked at that no matter where it took me.
I have friends on my list who have been without a job or freelance work for ages, but they are also the same guys who don't have

New folder+icon contest and Xmas contest remindeIcon contestNew folder+icon contest and Xmas contest reminde2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's this time of year again! Our group is going to turn 5 years old on Jan. 16 and we're in need of a new icon. Every year we do a contest to get a new group icon. The icon needs to have the group's name and have Kirby OCs/FCs in it, cannon Kirby characters are allowed in the icon, but the icon needs to have mostly Kirby OCs. The winner of the contest will have their icon used as the group's icon. Here's some examples of icons from past icon contests.
The icon needs to be 100x50
You need to add the group name.
Be creative, you can put Kirby OS and cannon Kirby characters in the icon.
Have fun with the contest!
First place: Icon used as the group's new icon, 15 points, and a fully colored picture of their request by Kirby-4-ever
Second place: 10 points and a line art of their request by MusicDrawer123

Unified Submission Process: now with more details!Last week, we shared some information with you regarding the upcoming Unified Submission Process. In case you missed our previous post, we're making a major upgrade to how our journal system is powered… they’re becoming deviations! As stated in the blog post, we're very excited for this change and can’t wait to release it. However, we want to take a moment and clarify a few of the awesome details and answer a few frequently asked questions...Unified Submission Process: now with more details!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Does this mean journals and deviations are going to be mashed together?
No! In fact, you probably won’t even notice that we made a change to the backend system that journals run on. The way you write and post journals, the way you read other users’ journals, and the way you browse deviations will remain the same. For all intents and purposes, this is a transparent technological upgrade.
So why are you telling m

THANK TO ALL THE PARTECIPANTS AND TO THE ONES WHO OFFERED PRIZES AND/OR TO BE A JUDGE.
Judging part will start soon, and thank you again to everyone who spread the word about this contest!!!!
I had some partecipants who all of sudden 'disappeared' here, probably because they have a life too (not like me). Sorry, I had to extend this contest, hoping to give the last latecomings enough time to submit their entries.
I deeply apologize for the long wait, I promise that when it will be judging time I'll try to be fast and give quickly the prizes too.
THE CONTEST HAD BEEN EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER, the 15th. PLEASE who is going to partecipate should really hurry up!
And thank you for the patience to the others who already submitted the entry/ies.
Try to look at the bright side: if I'll have more partecipants I'll add the honourable mention.
Edit: we have another judge, :iconJasm
