I got Photoshop CC!

Hey guys, Big news! I finally buckled down and decided to subscribe for Photoshop CC!

This means I should finally be able to draw once more, as well as even being able to edit and manipulate my photos easier than with the other programs I had been using before.               I’m so dang excited! I’ve been using Corel Painter Essentials FOUR ever since I got my first tablet years ago in middle school, and now I’m finally upgrading to something more competent and up-to-date! Plus I won’t have to use GIMP for any of my photo-editing;which I don’t typically do, but maybe I will more from now on? Either way, I’m so excited right now!

Sadly I’ll be super busy with papers and projects this week, and also finals and such…. but it won’t be too long till I can dedicate all my time to drawing and other such! Gaaah I’m so excited guys!

I had the idea for doing this to my photo I took yesterday (original here), so tonight I just went and did it!

Changed the hue of the cat from the blue-sky to more of a red to match the flag, and darkened the original flag image a bit to be more dramatic. I got tired of trying to figure out how to make the sky go transparent, so I just used a lasso-tool in GIMP and traced around the cat, and then tried my best to blurr the rough edges a bit, although I missed a few corners here and there (but whatever).

Some assorted photos I took, I feel they are good enough to post. I especially like the first and third pictures, although the first two are just a bit too blurry and out of focus, but the first one can manage the blurr just a bit.

The wood in the third and fourth is basically just wood in our firepit. I didn’t actually mean to take a vertical angle, and it must have been a weird technicality of my camera being juuust the right angle, but I guess it worked for the better!

More photos from the same session, there was a streetlight that was only illuminating one part of the roof. Personally I prefer the first image, but I’ve included the other for comparison-sake, and that a few others like the second image as well.

Both are good, and it brought out more orange to the blue/black mix that was already there, thus providing even more contrast! Woo~!

It was raining today, and while I was getting a cup of water I saw that the sky was so blue, and the trees were completely black against the bright sky. By the time I got my camera the sky wasn’t as blue, but the contrast between the trees and sky was still there, so I took a few shots!

I really like the Gothic feel that most of them bring out (such as the first and third ones), and the overall sketchy-style look of them all, especially the first one.

I know I haven’t updated in -forever-, but you all know the drill by now, especially right now with midterms and papers.
I was heading over to a dog-job the other day and was walking with my old camera because I wanted to be able to walk around without feeling silly for having a huge T3i with no backpack for it, and saw this squirrel. My town has a crazy amount of these guys, and the weather today was great, so they were all outside digging around for their winter food. Needless to say a lot of cats were also outside conveniently, but I hadn’t seen any confrontations to say the least. Anyways, these guys aren’t so afraid of people, so you can get pretty close sometimes, so I was able to stand at least 8 feet away, maybe 7 or 6 feet, and take a few shots.
The one thing I love about my old camera is it’s zoom, which I haven’t gotten a new lens for my T3i to make up for it’s default lens being pretty bland on both macro and far photography, so I forgot how nice it was to be able to zoom in this far.
But anyways, I’m going to be super busy this next week or two, but when my spring break comes along I should be able to take more photos hopefully, and if not then I’ll at least be able to record more episodes for RushtheFort (which by the way we have a Super Mario Galaxy episode sometime soon when I can find the time to upload)
