    @Rebel: You can do a traditional drawing with colors, then either scan it or take a good photo. I can offer some tips on how to get good, even lighting if you can't scan it. Anything from creating a poor man's light box to white sheets of paper to help bounce sunlight. Once, I made a lightbox from a small pizza box, and set up 2 lamps for lighting, then just edited the white balance in Photoshop. That's the Photoshopping I think Lieutenant was talking about.

    Did a few rough drafts, and elaborated on a layout I liked best. I'm going to finish this background up to 80% before adding in our mascots. Overall they'll frame the space where the May dates will go, which will be slightly off center.

    Reconnecting with someone after so many years, only to find out they kept a gift that was given out of love -- brings tears to my eyes. More so because it was within reach. The best thing after that, having a fresh start after all the darkness is long past.

    After all someone put me through, I still gave that person one last shot as a friend. In spite of being hurt after being ditched for another woman. Instead, accusations are thrown my way after said person didn't get his way when asking for me back. If the old saying is true, that you don't know what you have until it's gone -- tough cookies. I moved on quickly, because I don't hold on someone who can't see my value when I'm giving my all. I naturally meshed with someone who treats me right. I refuse to be robbed of my joy.

    Try 5.5 months because the US postal service lets you sign up for mail-forwarding and doesn't actually forward. -.-

    I've been busy with some crafty medieval commission work. Had some birthday stuff to make, and now I'm scrambling for Mother's Day ideas (after 20 years doing hand made, it's hard to keep it unique!). I've been inspired by beautiful cherry blossom scenes, so I'm carefully planning my own. Since I've got several months for this, I'm taking my time.

    I think she needs more hair swooshing. Like down to her calves. In fact, make it cover most of her dress. snickers

    In all seriousness, looking great so far.

    Using a projector is actually a long-standing practice among traditional artists. You don't end up messing up your original sketch, either. If something goes wrong, you have that sketch to re-trace.

  • In The kind of people u dislike. -___-

    I'm not sure I can say "hate" so much as my pet peeves when it comes to personality traits. More recently I ran into another case of hyped infatuation instead of understanding what it means to really love someone. It's too common for people to fall in love with the idea of love, move too quickly because of those emotions, and hurt both themselves and the person they think they're in love with. What's worse is when you see a person do that with two people at the same time, then throw a temper tantrum when both people don't behave the way said person wants them to.

    Love isn't a role playing game, where if one presses the right buttons, one gets a programmed result. Instant gratification doesn't happen when humans who seek deep, meaningful relationships are involved. It takes time to build a solid foundation upon which love, and trust can grow. The sad truth is that it's very easy to get caught up in someone else's emotions.

    If there's one personality type I can say I hate dealing with, it's the kind that throws him/herself into emotions and only act on impulse. When this type feels warm fuzzies that could lead to love, they run away blindly. When they hate, they have tunnel vision, and place full blame on the other person without looking at all sides of the situation.

    The moral of the last of this: There's two sides to every story. If you see someone vent-vomit all over their Facebook, there's a good chance that the person they act as if they hate so much has a story, and are being unfairly put on trial. Try not to jump on the hate bandwagon. If they ask for advice, ask about the other person, and try to find out what really happened. There's a chance that even your best friend is being a douche as well. As much as we want to believe in our friends, no one's perfect. And in a fight, no one's the winner.
