1. Before I say anything else I just want you all to know that I thought I'd sent gifty cookies to all of you, but then they took them away and I realised they hadn't sent properly! So add my one onto your accumulative tally because swear I didn't forget you! I know that whenever somebody says something like this I assume that they're not talking about me, but YOU, reading this right now, you were remembered!

3. meme instructions: Take a picture of yourself right now. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair - just take a picture. Post that picture with NO editing. Post these instructions with the picture. (just to clarify I took this photo the minute I saw iladora do the meme (even though that was days ago :P) and I've edited the colours but I haven't done any cloning/liquifying/etc so it still counts ;))


Some were made via photographic means (hence the obscene largeness) and some were made with Corel Painter 11 (which I've been experimenting with these past few days for the latest theskilltester challenge)


how would you like textures to be delivered from now on? (feel free to pick several)

large images in a .zip/.rar
large images individually uploaded to photobucket/imagevenue
medium-sized images in a .zip/.rar
medium-sized individually uploaded to photobucket/imagevenue
medium-sized images cropped to show of the assets of the texture in a .zip/.rar
medium-sized images cropped to show of the assets of the texture uploaded individually to photobucket/imagevenue
icon-sized images in a .zip/.rar

Haha I dunno, I really like Rollercoaster Of Death In My Pants ;)

And the photo looks great, even though color editing is cheeeaaating :P
Joshblueymcphluey on December 12th, 2009 02:12 pm (UTC)
oh, did I say I've edited the colours? I meant to say that my bedroom naturally looks like that...

Tag! You're it, you have to do the photo meme now

omg this poll is stressing me out because i'm not well-versed enough in the art of graphics-making to make an informed decision!!!!!!

Joshblueymcphluey on December 13th, 2009 06:11 am (UTC)
it's a fantastic emotional outlet, you should give it a try (and stop making lj posts that make me want to cry XD nvm, disregarding any negative things you may have ever said ;))

Is it just me or have you been buffing yourself up? You look good, if you weren't that much younger than me, this wouldn't be a problem. Plus - it's a fabulous photo! the colouring is really cool! I've been trying to work with green for so long and I can never get the hang of it (my next piece should be green but I hate it).

ALSO, HAIR. Can you do a photo so I can see your hair properly because you got a quiff thing going on right? I can't seeee, it's taunting me ;__;

How's those photography classes going btw? You were making loads of new acquaintances and there was cool people, that much I remember...

AND YAY! Painter, how's that going? I think it's really amazing for touch-ups and texture still, even though photoshop has my soul now :D
Joshblueymcphluey on December 15th, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
thankyou! but lol not intentionally. I'm pretty sure it's because of all of the photographic equiptment I have to lug around these days - taking photos is an unexpectedly physically demanding activity!

sure, will get on that :D

well we're on holidays now (so yay, relaxing... finally). Also more than half of the people in the course at the beginning of the year have quit, so it ended up being a lot more about the work than the people by the end. I'm really thrilled with how much I'm learning aesthetically from the course that I can also translate into my icons and wallpapers and such :D

lol, not well. I'm so stuck in my Photoshoppy ways, I'm having a really hard time doing the things I want to be doing :P I think it'll be good for adding splashes of texture onto something I've made in Photoshop but I don't think I could handle working with it to make an entire graphic :P

kate: P / melanie takes her vitaminsmotorized on December 17th, 2009 07:42 am (UTC)
Okay, here we go again. I'm going to try to finish it this time. :D

1. Suuuuuure you did. :P

2. I loled at this so much! 'Zero To Hero In My Pants' - haha, that could be on one of those 'want longer lasting sex' billboards.
'I Kissed A Girl In My Pants' ... mr flexible.
'Zoe's Avatar In My Pants' - 'I TOLD HERE THAT'S WHERE SHE'D FIND IT!'
'Rollercoaster Of Death In My Pants' - HAHAH.

3. Ok, so somebody's been working out. I've been trying to figure out who this photo reminds me of, and I've got it - Sean O'Pry! Don't you think? Idk. You might look nothing like him in real life, but this photo gives me that vibe. :D That is by no means a bad thing.

4. Downloading these is killing my internet, as well as downloading Legend of the Seeker, and Community, which I've decided I like. But they are downloading nonetheless. :D AND YO, on the subject of painter, errhhggghhhoweEHFABLRBF. I downloaded it and it's like a vegetarian being served a big chunk of meat. Hah, maybe it's just my low low low tolerance for anything that isn't photoshop.

Aaaaannnd... NY post. Just sayin'. lol. I'm expecting it to be pretty much epic by the time you release it to the world. No pressure or anything. hahah.

This actually turned out a lot shorter than the previous versions of this comment. Maybe because I'm about to pass out from exhaustion. gah.
Joshblueymcphluey on December 17th, 2009 08:51 am (UTC)
1. I did and I "sent" one to you and didn't get one in return and I was heartbroken!

2. I love this meme so much, I think I'm going to do it in every post from now on XD

3. well he is THE ideal male, so I am most definitely taking this as a compliment (however I respectfully disagree ;))

4. lol, I'll try and give smaller batches from now on

Painter is insane, I want to do curves and have awesome masks and be excellent, but all it will let me do is paint :'(

It's coming it's coming! Read my conversation thread with nargynargy up there, it's most definitely happening and it's most definitely huge. My plan now is for not only this to be a rundown of what New York was like, but also a huge database of awesome photos to show of my photographic/retouching/colouring/etc skills. Now because of that, I'm going to have to re-edit a few of the terrible earlier ones I did, so here they are as a present for being so greedy/needy/awesome/etc:


(now just to clarify these are the worst of what I've done so far and I'm giving them to you to stave off any agressive actions you have planned. I know that logic doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but that's what it is ;))

edit oh, and this is what my desktop currently looks like. Just saying...

1. I had one last batch that I meant to send, I think yours was in it. It's the thought that counts ;)

2. 'my life would such without you in my pants' is my favourite :D

3. wow that shade of green!
Joshblueymcphluey on December 18th, 2009 06:18 am (UTC)
3. ugh, I know. I'm so lucky that I've achieved what is very possibly my favourite colouring ever on a photo of myself. Except now I'm going to look really self-obsessed when I shove it in everyone's faces :/
