1. YouTube seems to be punishing me for watching this a million times (because it's not on YouTube :P) and it won't let me watch this now, which is incredibly important to me because Kasia Struss is one of about 5 models at the moment who make me absolutely giddy every time I see them and I haven't heard her voice before and I need to hear it.

For this next one I had to recreate a portrait and I chose this picture of Sam on ANTM:

but unfortunately the best I could do in the studio was this:

so I spent nine hours in front of my CS4 and came up with this:
Photobucket
I'm ridiculously proud of it :P

3. There's been a texture challenge running for the past month or so at theskilltester and I made a few entries I'm rather content with:




4. I've been re-watching The Knights of Prosperity and it's as brilliant as I remember it being. Basically for those who've seen Leverage it's a half hour comedy version of that; rediculously well written, but disappointingly average men. It's a shame viewers never gave it a chance.

what was the brilliant short-lived show you loved but apparently nobody else did?

That first picture is SO COOL. and pretty! look at the colors! ♥

I love what you did with the remaded portrait as well, though you model probably won't recognize herself anymore:)

lol @ I like it haute.

:DD thankyou! It's so much fun to work with colours in real life because it's kind of like photoshopping them in but it's always realistic :D

lol, she wasn't too thrilled that I completely reshaped her face/body :P

that's how I like it!

1. Oh man, that is some really cool photoshopping in your model-remake photo! seriously, you really transformed into into a 'model' feel. Totally could be done professionally!
I'm wondering whether you a) cloned the professional one into your shot in a subtle way OR b) whether you airbrushed/liquified to make her look so model-y.

2. Who is the guy in the yellow tank with the 'I love Haute' sign??

3.I have a question to ask about skilltester. :(

The reason I haven't been posting, apart from a extremely busy career, is that I feel weird posting. Sometimes, I know people can be intimidated by me and its not something I like. I don't want people thinking I'm entering challenges just to make them look bad - I HAVE ISSUES I KNOW. I don't like reality tv for the same reason: I dont like seeing people feel bad haha!
What I wanted to know is: can I post an entry with the results of my attempt without entering the challenge/competing with other people? That might defeat the purpose I suppose but the thing is, its the attempt that counts right? Not the competition?

I just did a retest (curves/dodge/roybgiv) but I'm weird about posting. Seriously, I am so fucking proud of doing that ONLY in curves and one dodge layer but I can't physically make myself enter it in the challenge :(. Let me know if I can post at skilltester without entering the challenge ok?

4. Are you having problems editing your userpics? I still can't get your ana-lucia icon up, I just keep get a blank wall when I hit 'edit'.
Joshblueymcphluey on May 31st, 2009 02:32 am (UTC)
1. oh thankyou! All liquify, dodging and burning babay! Zero cloning whatsoever, because we had to print this at a resolution about 1,000,000 times larger than what I could find the original picture in and I knew it would come out gross and pixellated.

2. Chrisopher Fawcett, he's a fairly new model and he's fantastic :D

3. lol, that's so crazy. Who says you're gonna win? ;) Who says you're gonna make other people have low self esteem? Nobody. And if your graphic really is that good then it deserves the respect it deserves. Also, have you heard about what happens if you win five times?
You become member of the month which means you can post WHATEVER you want in the community for a month, but also it means that from that point onwards you get points taken off of your score at the judging, so it's harder for you to win, which will challenge you to try harder. I think it sounds like you want those negative votes.

Although you have brought up an interesting idea. I'm going to add in a rule soon that will make it that you can still submit entries for challenges that have ended, but obviously they won't be voted on or anything, they'd just be there to show off how proud you are of your curves-only wallpaper :P

So... in conclusion of this question: just submit it. Who cares if you make other people feel bad, we need more participation and you get to be challenged more later down the track!

4. :/ I'm having no problems with it at all. Have you tried saving it to your computer and just uploading from there?
nargynargynargynargy on May 31st, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
It's not the winning part dude, it's just I hate to stand out and say - hey, look what I did. Which again, ridiculous because HELLO, I do it all the time in my journal. I can't explain it, its the 'mouse' effect when I see the word 'enter challenge'. Leave me :P

I took your comment on board and posted. I hate you in the best possible way. (The negative voting sounds like a great idea btw, but NO, not member of the month :O)

As for icons, I am uploading from the saved ones! :(
I've found that I can't send people PM's either. Its really weird.
Joshblueymcphluey on June 1st, 2009 10:56 am (UTC)
But everybody else is doing it! Tell yourself that you're just one in a crowd if it makes you feel better :P

lol, motm doesn't mean you have to post stuff, it just means you can if you want :P

Oh wow. The photos are amazing. Are random people all just from your class?
Joshblueymcphluey on May 31st, 2009 02:36 pm (UTC)
they're my two friends outside of tafe and my younger brother. We're not allowed to take photos of anybody else in the course (which sucks because they're much better looking :( )

Heya :)

Just dropping you a note letting you know I made my way here from some icons you've made, and your journal is interesting and has randomness which I love, so I made with the friending *waves*
Joshblueymcphluey on May 31st, 2009 03:03 pm (UTC)
:D hello! I was just looking at your journal and I think it's really cool you've got a summary of everything you've done this year and a list of what you plan to do.

Just out of curiosity, did any icons in particular lead you here or just general iconnage?
M: GG olé!spankulert on May 31st, 2009 03:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that list has been amazing in that it prompts me to get more stuff done. As for listing stuff, well I have a horrible memory so from now on I'm just keeping tabs ;)

I've seen a few around, but very terrible at remembering specifics. There's one with Inara on a bed, and there's one with all the Buffyverse names on it, and I've seen you about DH icontests and skilltester too I think.
Joshblueymcphluey on May 31st, 2009 03:10 pm (UTC)
oh, I meant what prompted you to check me out now. Why not yesterday? Why not tomorrow? :P
M: Buffy hardly workingspankulert on May 31st, 2009 03:15 pm (UTC)
I work on a boat and we're currently on the move so connection's really slow and unreliable. That means I'm not checking the flist because it takes too long to load each page it's not worth the effort. SPN is also on hiatus, causing the flist to slow down some, so I am on the hunt for more interesting folks.

Does that satisfy your curiosity?
(which I think is awesome)
Josh: snlblueymcphluey on May 31st, 2009 03:17 pm (UTC)
hehe yup :D I'm glad you find my nuttiness awesome, because I guarantee there's more where that came from.

It concerns me that lice is apparently talking about me :P

Star Trek was awesome, I'll probably make some icons when/if I get the DVD
