Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

Strawberry’s Monday Meme this week was one of those moments of “Oh RIGHT ON!” and then subsequently realizing I didn’t know how to accomplish what I wanted. I had all day between work projects to think about it, argue with myself over which idea to pick, and then finally decide with a thunk over the head which one I wanted to try. I went through about ten different pictures, looking up tutorials, looking through tools and brushes, and finally picked the one that I liked the most. Or should I say, disliked the least.

Monday Meme Instructions: The challenge for this week is to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Get creative and have some fun with it! Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so others can come by and see your poster as well.

Building for me is often an exersize in prim torture. Not the tiny prim jewelry creation prim torture, just your average, every day torture of prims trying to get them to do things that they were not meant to do. Though, if I’m going to be completely honest, its more me torturing the poor prims to get them to do things that they *CAN* do… but I just take awhile figuring out how to get them there.

I’m kinda the same way in photoshop. I know what I want to accomplish, but usually have no idea how to get there. I spend more time in tutorials than I do actually working on a photo sometimes. I KNOW there has to be an easy way to wash out an image and tone it properly but every single one just… didn’t work. Rather than keep poking at it, I called it done when I got to one that looked ok to me.

But like the blog, it keeps me learning and trying things. So at the end of the day, its all good.

Toodles,

    Photoshop is my Achilles heel. It’s also the source of my ulcer. You did a fab job!
