This journal is now Friends-Only. Sort of...

What I mean is that all my graphics or fandom related posts will remain public, but anything having to do with my personal life will be friends-only. So if you're only here for my art or to talk pop-culture, there's no need to friend me (Unless you want to, in which case, please do!).

However, if you're here because for some strange reason you think I'm cool, or interesting, or funny, or [insert descriptive word here], then please, leave a comment and let me know! If we share interests, or friends, and reading your journal doesn't make my brain hurt or make me want to hurl things at the monitor, then I will most likely add you. Don't be shy, I'm really not that bad. Just picky.

So please, if you want to be friended, or if you have a graphic request, then comment here. Try to be witty and/or interesting, and please be legible.

Thanks!

hey, I've seen your blends at the colbert_report (and now your LJ header) your stuff is amazing, and I thought I was getting good, but my stuff looks like crap after seeing yours...I mean, do you have certain texture sites you use or are you the #1 cropping expert in LJ?!

HAHAH, no way man. There are soooo many people out there who are MUCH better than I am, but it makes me happy to think that I compare to them! Thank you!

I don't really have any certain techniques that I follow..I just read tutorials and then take a little bit from each one and play around and see what works! Basically you just play, try different things and decide what you like. Something you think looks like crap could be beautiful to someone else, but then something you think looks amazing could look like crap to other people. It's just about deciding what YOU like. Fuck everyone else..lol.

Oh, and never underestimate the power of COLOUR.

Actually, I looked at the icons you've posted in your journal and your cropping is pretty good! You might want to layoff some of the textures and maybe work with a bit more colour and saturation and contrast, but the cropping is pretty perfect.
