Since i switched to Linux, i was missing software for RAW files. I tried photivo and rawtherapee, but it was slow and frustrating (RT likes to crash frequently with pentax files). I started loosing hope but then: I found darktable - http://www.darktable.org/
From DT website: "darktable is an open source photography workflow application and RAW developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them."
Darktable is a young project. Folks from DT team are working hard on new features.
Menu and workflow is similar to Lightroom, but there are some new, nice features (for example - right click on sliders will open dropdown window for precise selection - http://www.darktable.org/2012/03/bauhaus-widgets/ ). For me -

Your Life Path - Your Evolutionary Direction and Life Purpose - The Role You Are Meant to Play in Life
The Life Path number describes the life lessons that we have come here to learn. It reveals to us the path we must take, and the role we must play to fulfill our mission. Often our choice of career is based on this vibration, and if not, then it will manifest through avocational pursuits. We may attract people and experiences into our lives that mirror the traits of this number for us, so that we may develop into our highest potential. We don't always welcome our life lessons, so it is a possibility that we may even feel an aversion to the characteristics of our Life Path number in other people, and we may ou

Anyways, i watched despicable me 2 and Monster university.
To be honest, i liked despicable 2 more than Monster university. Was much funnier and better. I really loved Gru and Lucy together X3 SHIP IT TO DEATH! Also my mom liked the movie better. We wanted to see it twice, but i decided to give Monster university a chance.
I was hyper, returning back from grandmas house and reading the Rayman Legends news. Rayman Legends gets a PC port. This will be good for Adriana aka :iconsailorraybloomDZ:. Great! Now i can buy it for 3 consoles. I already preordered the Wii U version today ^^

The Reason I Do Not Take Point CommissionsHellooo!The Reason I Do Not Take Point Commissions7 months ago in Personal More Like This
so I wanted to quickly explain why I do not take point commissions, because I am still getting asked for them. Hopefully explaining here will help!
The main reason I will not do point commissions is simply because it is FAKE MONEY. I cannot use points to buy more art supplies, or pay bills, or anything else. Hence I have no need for them! xD If it were possible to redeem them for cash then I would, but as you know DA does not allow that.
Next, A picture takes a lot of time and effort and so even if I did take them, it would cost a lot of points which most people are not willing to pay; lets say someone wants to pay 800 points ($10) for a picture that took 10-15 hours. that would be $0.66/hour. nooooot worth it! xD as an artist, you should NEVER settle for drawing something for less than what its worth! bad idea!
also, I am sooo busy!!! working full time and drawing! I have a comic I want to launch, and it takes a shit ton of planning! The plot is dense, I still have to fin

what i'd like to do is "host" a big ol' collab picture that includes a lot of artists. this will give artists exposure to others and vice versa, from their point of view. also, it is fun!!
what i am planning to do is make a template sheet and paste pictures you guys send to me onto it, hence me acting as a "host". to give you some ideas, i'll start to explain what i would like to do. this will be a large picture that looks like a "select your fighter" screen, like this:
that is the basic idea, but i would like to add a few things. first off, there will be enough space for you to show more than your character's head. let's say...

under that, i will add your character's name
under their name, i will add a catchy sorta nickname for them, specific to th
BullyingA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Bullying2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A Little Advice...Here is the first thing you need to learn if you want to work in the fields of arts and crafts. Everyone will have an opinion about your work. Yup they will either hate it, love it, like it, or think indifferent. Some will be vocal about it, others will not. Some will be jealous, others will admire and appreciate. Opinions will be about your work though and not about you. Intimidating, very much so... it is also liberating. Not every piece will sell, not every piece will be perfect yet you are doing something others are not, and that is producing and taking a chance. At the end of the day - the only thing that matters is that you did something, that no one else did, and hopefully you learned from it. You improved a little at your craft and you find the courage to do it again tomorrow.A Little Advice...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Chciałabym jednocześnie zaznaczyć, że nie popieram działań grupy Anonymous, uważam je za szkodzące naszej sprawie, jaką jest zatrzymanie tej niszczącej twórców ustawy.
