Yeah, it's really dissapointing to go to OT and pretty much know no one. *sighs* WTF happened to everyone? I also have a bunch of other priorities in life, but I somehow feel the need to come back and post just a little bit with y'all. Everyone here seems to be all tangled up in school, college, work, PC problems, getting drunk, getting bored with OT, etc.
OT..I'm sure none of you want to hear another rant about how lousy it is ATM. IMHO, it all started with GS cracking down and laying down the law more strictly. It's become needless and stupid to even bother trying to post a lot of things since they come down like vultures to a dead cow. It's not the mods' fault, so..yeah. Anyhoo, I want to post in LL, but everyone seems to be asleep at these times (unforgiving time zones), so it's pretty much a ghost town over there.
Well...my exams are over, so it's smooth-sailing from here on out. Great gaming sessions, graphic design, and general laziness are on the horizon, stuff you basically can't do when you have impt. **** to do.
Over and out, I got **** to do still.
..how such complex beings are reduced to mere text in the world of forums, no?
It's just a thought that popped up into my head, we can be whatever we want to anyone we want (minus the ridiculous). It's..almost stupid how much trust we give to one another.
But thinking about it again, it just broadens your perspective how much underlying trust we have for one another. I'm supposed to treat all of you with copious amounts of suspicion, but I open my mind to you guys! Lol, it's illogical. It's impractical. It's...fun?
Heh, that's the reason I like posting here (well, duh). It's..enjoyable. It's..ironic. It's...an overuse of the word 'it'.
I haven't been posting much in OT anymore, nor in my blog (as youcan very well see). There simply is nothing of any particular significance to post when you're a teenager. Really important occasions are few and far between when you can't even drive without an adult to be beside you (but knowing thedevious bastard that resides in me, I may just test the law..or not). School is typically dull if you take away my friends. I'd tell you guys all about it, but our cultures differ so greatly considering we live in modern societies. Come to think of it, I'd like to converse with an aboriginee (SP?), native american and/or some out-of-the-way tribe person...dude.
I need to get to bed, later guys and happy posting. BTW, if anyone's interested:
Here's a sig tutorial from yours truly
I'll post in your blogs when I can.
As of this moment, it's my birthday, July 5:D.
As some of you may know, school for me starts mid-June and ends at late March. The cool thing about this is that when your summer ends, I'll already be a fifth done with the year:P.
My cla$$mates are cool, lots of friends. Suddenly school got a bit harder, but it's nothing some extra-work can't handle.
I got a credit card:D. Thinking about picking up both Halo games, C&C3, and GH2. Hopefully,I get the last (and most expensive game) from my Dad. I got a cupcake from my friend, thay was really nice of her. Another one gave me Kasabian (cd). What else...I'm going to learn how to dive already! That's definitely cool.
However, my planned celebration on Saturday may get cut short because of the driving lessons, I'll probably have to move it to next week...That kind of sucks, I suppose. There were like 12 people going to go play DOTA and Counter-strike with me.
Whatever, I want to learn how to drive:P.
I tried out Illustrator, it's pretty effing frustrating. It's so confusing compared to Photoshop. Apparently, it's a bit notorious for having a steep-ish learning curve for Photoshop vets. Something that normally takes me 2 seconds to do is causing me hell now. I can't make anything good because I can't effing figure something out. Took some time of and did other things, I can always go back, I guess.
I haven't been posting much since I've been having some fun with my 360. Might post up some reviews some time.
*Thinking about upgrading to TA, any good?
After well over a year of sticking to sigs, I feel it's time to move on. Deep within me (I promise there won't be too much drama in this post:P), I always thought that sig making was on the cheesy-side. So right now, I've decided to take the path of the Vectorer. For those who don't know what the crap that is, here are a few examples:
One of my favorite abstract pieces.
My favorite vector of a person
The reason why I chose this path was simply because I'm not that good i anything else. I can't draw for ****, working in 3d is boring, and photography is still a bit beyond my budget. Actually, I enjoy photography, but I'm limited to such few subjects, I can't go around to fantastic places everyday. I'm definitely going to use Adobe Illustrator cs2 (or cs3 if I'm lucky). I'd be happy with either program anyway. I love color, and that's what makes a lot of vector pieces really "pop". There's less emphasis on textures and lighting and more on colors and shading. I guess you could say that I'm cartoon-ifying things. Previously, I used to vexel in photoshop. Vexelling is kinda hard to explain, you use similar techniques, but the end result is fairly different.
I will probably dabble in photo manipuations, but they'll all be Large Pieces. I'm not completely quitting sigs, however, I might go back once in awhile.
Bare with me while I rediscover myself in this new facet (bit thick, yeah).
Oh, and by the way, Billnye really dislikes vectors, sorry dude, but my mind's made up:P.
And I leave you guys with a really skilled vectorer.
*some of his work is 3d.
