Q and A: Basic Photoshop BrushesYou could view this blog entry on my site as well: http://thousandskies.com/blog/2012/11/10/qa-basic-photoshop-brushesQ and A: Basic Photoshop Brushes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once in a while people will ask me what kind of brush that I used in photoshop. I kept meaning to make this kind of post so I could explain it better. So if you guys have anymore question about photoshop I will be glad to answer it and make another Q&A post.
1. WHAT TYPE OF BRUSH DO YOU USE, IS IT BASIC BRUSH OR A CHALK TYPE BRUSH?

Make sure under the Window> Brushes> Shape Dynamics> Size Jitter's Control is under Pen Pressure. This brush is useful for inking and blocking basic colors.

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali
A Year Or So Of Square ImagesHi,A Year Or So Of Square Images11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I removed tons of crap from my local collection of my creations and ended up with a few possibly interesting ones. Apparently dA journals don't support the <table> tag, only those unwieldy thumb tables with ridiculously small thumbs, so I made an external page with a nice layout and lynx to dA pages:
Btw some of the images are older than a year or so, I just decided to adopt squareness about a year ago so I would have to worry about only a single printing format, and then decided to squarify a few older ones as well in order to preserve them for posterity. I've noticed I haven't been making much greatness lately, which is a motivational issue and one which I will have to deal with myself or get a "real" job.
Below are the thumbnails anyway for your convenience and delight. The web page looks a lot better though!
Have fun, be amazed or whatever applies

Whoa. AC fans, check this outhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=ixVGMUlwr4Y&feature=endscreenWhoa. AC fans, check this out2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is amazing. It turns out Altair, Ezio, and Desmond are NOT from the same blood line. People assume they're related because they all have Eagle Vision, but everyone has that potential locked away. It's just that Altair, Ezio, Haythem, Connor, and Desmond (or more) have unlocked this ability somehow.
You guys seriously need to see the vid. It's amazing.
Aaaand it seems like they might be doing another ancestor for AC4--or it's simply for the next gen of Assassins. It's hard to tell right now, but it's amazing to find this stuff out.

The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.
It's no easy task to pull a book together for publication and "The New Street Pho

This is a subtitle; On Melancholy Hill Lyrics :D
Up on melancholy hill
There's a plastic tree
Are you here with me?
Just looking out on the day
Of another dream
Well you can't get what you want
But you can get me
So let's set up and see
'Cause you are my medicine
When you're close to me
When you're close to me
So call in the submarine
'round the world we'll go
Does anybody know
If we're looking out on the day
Of another dream?
If you can't get what you want
Then you come with me
Up on melancholy hill
Just looking out on the day
When you're close to me
When you're close to me
When you're close to me
Personal reasonsOver a year ago a person got very offended by an old comic of mine and wanted to explain to me why it was offensive. When they wrote to me I had long since understood that and deleted it from my own galleries, but they had found it on Tumblr and felt it was important to talk about NOW. At first I didn't respond because a lot of things were going on in my life and I needed to not stress about it, but then they started shouting on Tumblr about it and got more people shouting at me and I finally gave in. I tried to explain to the person what my thoughts had been behind it at the time but that I no longer felt that way, but they kept going.Personal reasons3 months ago in Personal More Like This
At the same time a lot of people were writing me about minor things like if they should move to Denmark or what my opinion was about one thing or another, and I didn't respond to any of those either and some questioned me about it. All the while this person was getting all worked up and wouldn't just take my "I'm sorry but I can't do this right no

STOP! RAFFLE TIME!RAFFLE TIMESTOP! RAFFLE TIME!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It has occurred to me that I have never done a raffle before. And I kinda wanna do one. This raffle is going to be very small and very simple. That's just how it's gonna work. There's not much you have to do, but there are some pretty easy rules to follow.
You must be watching me. Whether a new watcher or an old watcher, I don't care. No tears.
You must favorite this journal. I don't care if you unfav it after the raffle is over. But you have to fav it the first time.
You must have at least three deviations in your gallery. I'm not giving them to you just because. I want you to deserve them.
You must favorite this journal by Sept. 19th, 2013 or you will not be included in the raffle.
Now that we have the rules established, let's move onto the raffle prizes. They are very small, as I stated earlier. (Maybe I'll do a bigger one another time.)

I give away one of my little Danbo's for free, just because I know how many people would like to get one. I'm not sure how yet. I think with random.org is the most fair way to choose one person. If you have a better idea leave a comment below. This give away starts Aug 1 and will end on Aug 8!
Who is Danbo? It's a carboard box robot made of plastic. He can move his head, arms and legs and his eyes can give light by turning on a switch. (see my pictures below)
What you have to do is:
Add this journal to your favourites so I know that you're in!
And that's it ♥
I'll send this 3 INCH tall Danbo in his original package to your address if you are chosen.
Good luck to everyone ♥
