*yawn* This is boring.

Hi.

Today, is a holiday here in the Philippines, more specifically, Edsa day. It’s the day when our country was freed from Marcos’ dictatorship, and democracy was restored. I had hoped today would be interesting, but alas, no.

So I spent my time watching TV, reading books, eating and sleeping. And from time to time, I would read the stuff on my Tumblr dashboard. I would also open my tumblr page so I can listen to the music on it. When I did so, I realized my tumblr seriously needed a facelift. So I decided to give it one.

Christmas…tralalala~

Hi! Good morning!

Apologies if the place has become rather quiet, I’ve had too much fun drawing and doodling the past few days. Why wouldn’t I, I have fresh stocks of drawing materials, and my dad bought me a graphics tablet for Christmas! Hooray!

Well, it all started when I was too bored, and had no idea what to post. So rather than just stare at the computer screen and it’s blinking cursor, I whipped out my pencil and started doodling. But here’s the catch: I still didn’t have anything to draw! I thought for a while, and decided to draw my character in one of my favorite games, Thing thing.

Now, you might have that imaginary question mark over your heads wondering, “What’s Thing thing?” and well, I’m hear to answer that! Thing thing is a game in which you take the role of a biological weapon made to kill, but instead broke out of his cell and decided to have a little taste of freedom. Now before you go and search it on the net, I have to warn you, IT IS BLOODY. And by bloody I mean, flying brains and body parts when you shoot your enemies. So yeah.

After a couple of hours drawing, I came up with this:

My character in Thing thing.

Yeah, that’s how it looks like. Also, I drew my favorite weapons in the game, the sword, and a Viper .44 Magnum.

Now, as for the tablet…it was pretty unexpected, I’ll say. My dad woke me up earlier than my internal clock would dictate, so I was pretty moody for the first 2 hours. But eventually, I was back to my old, quirky self. I was literally flipping around the store when I found out Dad was going to buy me a tablet.

As soon as we got home, I decided to try it out. It wasn’t any different from drawing using a pen on paper, other than the fact I had to keep steady pressure on the pen, otherwise the drawing will look jittery. I practiced on random doodles first, then I decided to draw one of the pages for my thing thing fan fiction. (Yes, I am obsessed with the game, sorry!) It fast forwards to around 5 years after Project 154 was terminated, and we now look at a New generation of Projects, namely the Ragnarok Phase. So far I’ve only written the draft, maybe when I finish, I’ll post it here. πŸ˜‰ Oh, before I forget, here’s the page I was talking about.

Splat!

Good morning!

Well, in my country it’s pretty late in the morning anyways. Haha. As you can see, my blog’s taken on the new Pilcrow theme, and I must say, I really like it! I’ve been looking for a good and flexible theme with custom headers and backgrounds, and Pressrow was missing something, which I found in Pilcrow. So I switched to Pilcrow, and gave my blog a new paint job-literally!

As you can see, the background is my own personalized paint splatter background. The reason I chose paint splatters as a theme is well, because I think it’s mostly how life is like. You never really know exactly how the splatter would look like until you gave it a try. Just like all the opportunities you can get in life.

I’ve also changed the blog header altogether, because of two reasons. First is the fact that when I changed themes, the header was automatically reset. Second, pretty much just because I wanted it to match the background. So I took a couple of minutes deciding on the quote I was going to feature on the header, and I’ve decided on the quote by Daphne Rae.

“I have found the paradox, that when you love ’till it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

Then I got to painting splats. I had fun with this one, because I had to think of where I would paint them carefully, because too much of one certain color on one side would be a cause of imbalance, and too much color would just be a plain eyesore. That’s how I ended up with the current header.

And as an answer to the questions I’ve been getting from my friends, I shall post the Q’s and A’s here.

  • “How do you do the paint splatters?”

-Well, those are just pre-made brushes I got for free off the internet. The ones I used for this project are brushes from EasyElements.com, and some of the creations available at DeviantArt.com.

  • “How do you make sure that you don’t make any mistakes?”

-I can’t gurantee that I don’t make any mistakes, but what I do is, that for every different color of splatter I use, I make another layer, so that if I suddenly change my mind, I can easily edit it.

  • “Can I use your background too?”

-I’m not very selfish when it comes to stuff like these, and I often allow other people to use the, as long as they credit me for it, and not take it as their own.

 

That’s pretty much it. Now excuse me, as I still have to fix my “about” page.

Oh my God. This can’t be real. It can’t be.

Oh. My. God.

I can’t believe what just happened today.

Just today, there was a seminar in the school about Media versus Gospel Truths…or something like that. The catch is that to join you need to pass the reply slip and pay P50. And I did neither. Why would I, when I’m honestly uninterested in the topic. If I joined, it’s probably only because it’ll be heldΒ  in the auditorium in the afternoon of a really hot day. But I still didn’t.

Photoshop randomness…

Random things that happen…

Yeah, as you all know, we have Computer classes and Computer Clubs at school, and I participate often in them. In our previous meeting in the club, our activity was to make a poster in photoshop about anything. I decided to make a sort of typographical lyric poster inspired by Snow Patrol. In the next hour, I had finished it, which looked like this:

 

My project for ZLL. πŸ˜€

 

Of course, they just HAVE to get a hard copy. So later, I’ll be going outside to have it printed. That’s all for this post. xD

New blog theme…with a headur!

Okay, as you can see, I’ve changed my theme.

From Dusk, by Becca Wei, I’ve switched to ChaoticSoul by Bryan Veloso. For some reasons, I like themes with the menu at the right hand side, including the other pages. And this one’s pretty clean too. And it comes with a header, so I’ve decided to not stick with the default and make my own. Although, I ran into some trouble because most of the time, I put text in the middle, then borders at the side, and this theme has a bar running through the middle of the header, so it wouldn’t look very nice. So I went for a different approach.

Making this banner from scratch, it didn’t take very long. I just mainly used the Clouds Filter and the Noise. And there you have the night sky. Then I typed in some text, in the fonts Jellyka – Estrya’s Handwriting by Jellyka Nerevan, and Teutonic no.4 from the Teutonic set by Paul Lloyd.

Then, I picked out one of my favorite fonts, this one I found in a game from Armor Games. I can’t remember the exact name, but it goes “Colour my —-”

So yeah. That is how the header came to be. Like it or not, it’s going to stay there until I feel like making another one, which won’t be anytime soon.

Also, here are the links to the sites where I got the font from. Also, says here they’re only for personal use, but for the one by Jellyka, say there that she would like a donation if you’re going to use it for Commercial stuff.

Poster-ing some words.

Okay, long time no writey. πŸ˜€

First of all, I am still not free to keep writing as frequent as I originally was able to, but maybe next week, yeah, maybe.

So anyways, on to the main topic!

A few days ago, a friend of mine introduced me to this nifty

site; it’s called Wordle. It’s a site where you can type in a bunch of words, and then the Java App organizes it into a random jumble. They’re pretty handy for posters, and it just so happens I need to make a poster for the computer club. So, hooray, I get to use it. :> The only thing was, I was a photoshop amateur, so I really don’t know how to spice it up. So, good ol’ google directs me to a nifty tutorial on how to make a typographic poster. And it was AWESOME! It’s really cool, here’s the link in case you wanna try it. Oh, don’t worry about needing to understand too many geeky stuff or whatever, it’s very newb-friendly. πŸ˜€

Create a Typographic poster!

Now, if you check it out, you’ll find out it’s using lyrics from a song, and I’ve been so inspired by Snow Patrol lately, I’ve decided to use parts of their songs for my poster! Maybe I’ll show you a copy of the poster when I finish it. ^^
