now I've got this all out of my system I'm off for a week-long field trip with my photography class!  
1. I finally getting around to watching ANTM cycle 2 last week. I'm so sad I didn't do it earlier because it's brilliant. I'm in love April and her journey to become romantic because she reminds me a lot of myself (because I'm a sexy Asian model obviously ;)) in the sense that I'm very analytical about art. Also I find her determination is admirable.

2. Answer the questions with pictures of the person/character you were tagged with. Leave a comment and I will give you a name.
flatlined associated me with Jessica Stam (which btw was the incorrect answer of who you associate me with. Natalia Vodianova is correct, for future reference ;))

01. Choose a picture of the funniest face on your person.

09. Choose your favorite picture of this person.


The colouring I use often reduces image quality and usually it's not visible in icons because I blend and then resize from 300x300 when I'm done, but it's visible here :/ Overall I like it but it's too splotchy to look at for an extended period of time.

The fifth version is my favourite, it's my current wallpaper. The idea behind it was to show the many faces of Natalia because she's looks so different in each photo, but all of her faces are beyond perfect. I can't say I'm completely happy with the way I've composed and blended the pictures, the right hand side is getting a bit crowded and messy and the top half is empty. I really love the vertical lines because I feel like they add a distinct mood to the piece (and distract from some of the low quality pictures :P).


a) this is the ideal Burn Notice icon for me. The cap is full of so much drama and intent, and my colouring is spot on. It's saturated, but not too saturated, it's got a variety of colours but it all meshes and I'm not worried at all that at some places skin is green, in fact I kind of love that.

b) um, it's alright. I'm not in love with it, but it could definitely be worse. I like the reds on the left.

c) I really like the textures in this, but I think the colours need a bit more tweaking. The textures are too extreme (they're blowing out the beauty of the original photo), there's too much yellow in the reds and the blues are too saturated and bright. However I feel I've made a good base for a great icon. I'm crazy about the offset rectangular shape.

d) about 5 seconds worth of effort was put into this and it shows :P

e) eek, brb going blind. I like the bars at the top and bottom, though.

f) I'm currently in love with this. It's so sexy and unexpected. The way I've used the textures is so far out of my regular routine, I love the V shape I made, it feels like an old painting. Do you remember the ones that were just silhouettes?
And a special shout out to lice because without his photo of a river (now running through Cesar's chest) this wouldn't be possible :P

f) glad you found use of something i posted on tumblr :) i didn't think people even looked at my tumblr, it's kind of ghetto haha. but i love your icon and think it's sexy too, which is a weird way to describe an icon.

oh, by the way, i love that you are watching the new season of PR! it's weird seeing the show back on television. who are your favorites?

I was really liking the asian guy who got kicked out last week (cute I liked his glasses/concept) and now I like the girl who won last week because she seems smart
lice on September 6th, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
lol, poor Malvin. i liked his concept too even though he got carried away. i also really loved his voice. i follow him on twitter now - do you have twitter?

I think you're talking about Shirin, she won the maternity wear challenge. She's incredibly perky.

do you laugh at the way Americans act?
Joshblueymcphluey on September 11th, 2009 08:05 am (UTC)
Malvin's glasses/hair/face were really cool! I thought he was going to be the next Christian Siriano :(

nah, I don't twitter. I'm one of those people who doesn't really see the point in it :P

yep, I'm sticking with Shirin and I think I like Chrisopher as well because of his "play on volume", but I just want him to have a bit more of a personality.

haha, sometimes, but Australians can be silly too :P

i'm on msn - sign on!~!

haha, see now I've got a conundrum. Should I let you continue to think I watch your tumblr, or tell you that I found it in that fashin post where somebody wanted photos from a forest to be inspired by. Oh, well, there we go :P

Thankyou and I agree! I always try and make my icons as sexy as possible :D

I LOVE f. I've been seeing you use it at theskilltester and I love it. The river photo does add, like, the perfect color and texture.

OOH. And MEME. Give me a person! ...Please :D
Joshblueymcphluey on September 6th, 2009 09:54 pm (UTC)
Thankyou! And oh, I know. I was just trying on different textures and stocks for size and then I did that one and it was like an epiphany, it was too perfect :P

Hmm... Rashida or Shia... Rashida or Shia... hmm... Rashida :P

See, I knew I should have gone with Natalia. but um, now I have pretty pictures of Jessica Stam, so- yay all the same.

I really like F.
Joshblueymcphluey on September 6th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
and aren't they pretty? :P thankyou!

Of all your Jessica Stam photos, my favorite is 4. She looks so cute and sweet and her hair is gorgeous! and OMG THAT DRESS♥.

3a) I love the colouring on that, and I don't see any problems with the image quality?

You must make an icon of this picture, 'cause it has the kind of colors I think you can do amazing things with.

Have fun on your school trip! Or take brilliant photographs. Or both:)
Joshblueymcphluey on September 11th, 2009 08:10 am (UTC)
isn't it amazing? I had a candid photo on the set of that shoot and she looks even more perfect, but I can't find it anywhere :/

3a) just the colours are getting a bit blocky on her face. There's a blob of blue and a blob of green and it's all very grainy in the focused areas. However, thankyou very much!

I'll do you one better - I'll take photos like that picture and then publish them in magazines! It may take years for me to achieve this but I promise you I will ;)

thanks! Done and doner! :D

I really do like 3a. It's simplistic, but SO pretty, and the colours!

this is cool :D

Joshblueymcphluey on September 11th, 2009 08:10 am (UTC)
:) thankyou!
