Behold, a new LJ look. Go see!

It looks best in the 1024x??? whatever resolution, maximized screen. Decent in minimized screen. Actually, to tell you the truth, I have no idea what it looks like in anything lower, or anything higher. ^^; I just wanted something more peaceful for the wintertime, and in general something which was a break from my traditional hyperactively weird journal look. : P The only problem is that right now, I don't have a good "serene" icon ... o.o But all things come with time. We shall see.

The image is a charcoal drawing I did today in figure drawing of the model, who happened to be wearing a cool knit hat with pompoms on strings. I added the blue tint in my crappy Limited Edition version of photoshop by making a new layer, paintbucketing the thing blue, and selecting some option other than "normal" for it (I think it was "color," although I am not sure. XP). I had wanted to duotone it, but Limited Edition can't do duotones (amongst other options that it lacks). A word for the wise - save up and get a full version of Photoshop. XP

Pretty new icon. ^_^

'tis another of Emma-Wren Lane, my character in the now-defunct Factory Default RPG.

My scanner bleached it out, though. XP Now her face looks fat and flat! (I was going for "gentle roundness" ... ok, so no, I really wasn't. It's a flawed drawing, but I liked her expression, so ... there you go. XP)

It looks good. ^^ It may be imperfect, but it has beauty nonetheless. Like many things.

o_o that is very nice layout. Shading with charcoal is excellent! Charcoal reminds me of canvas for some reason o_O Don't mind me. ^^;
Oush.. I know how you feel with the Photoshop since I still have the program.. but don't use it anymore.. xD DL a full version through KazAa?

You probably also figured it out already, but this is my other journal. xD one that I find suits me more than sainou_rei. o_o; Apologize for the belatedness. xx; So er.. hi again? ^^;

Yeah, I figured it was you. ^_^ Hi again!

I know it's expensive, but I'd rather find a way to save up and purchase my own copy of Photoshop. ^^; That, and my school blocks file-sharing thingiemabobbers like KazAa, so ... ^^;

I like charcoal. Messy is good!

I asked you SEVERAL times if you wanted either Photoshop or Paintshop Pro...

Yes, I know that you have, and I will continue to avoid getting it from you. : P I already have a copy of Photoshop 6.0 that Nairohe sent to me, that I have not yet installed on my computer (and maybe never will). I personally prefer to purchase my own copies, even if it takes me forever. I just feel better about things that way.

Okay, okay. =P That's the kind of thing I do with music. But not with software as expensive as Photoshop.
