When bird start singing oil painting by Afremov by Leonidafremov

My interpretation of the artwork is as simple as the contrast in colour used, the contrast between man-made and natural. But somewhere ...

My critiques.


How do you feel about animated comics? 

1 deviant said I think subtle effects are cool, like animated rain in the background of a panel.
No deviants said I like my frames to stay put! Thank you very much.
No deviants said Each panel should contain long animation-loops so it's like watching a movie!

Journal History

Between now and the 15th of next month (DEC) I have to:

-Attend 36hrs of classes.
-Write ~7,500 words in assignments, plus two written assignments that don't specify a word-count but will end up being quite lengthy.
-Perform 1hr 30mins in practical counselling demonstrations for assessment, plus possibly double to allow for practice sessions.
-Take 310,000 steps, to meet my daily goal of 10,000 --- most days I double it, but some I barely go anywhere.
-Finish packing my room ready to shift --- probably another 10hrs in total, plus I've run out of boxes so I need to source more quickly.
-Return all books I have borrowed out from various libraries to their rightful place --- I've about 30 books from 3 or 4 different libraries.

Between now and the 15th of next month (DEC) I want to:

-Draw every day.
-Research various medical journals that contain advancements in biological engineering that relates to my interest in the post-humanist movement.
-Play games every day.
-Watch movies and TV shows every day.
-Write a few stories I've had brewing for years, and possibly develop comic strips for them.

Note the void.

And there will likely be little compromise. Everything in the top section chews up a lot of time.

The subconscious awareness of the vast difference between the top and the bottom section = burn-out. Simple psyc' formula.

Therefor, if a balance is not to be struck, I need to develop the ability to make the top and bottom sections read the same.

Ps. Katie Cassidy, your role in Kill For Me was cool. I'm developing somewhat of an obsession after watching The Scribbler

Simple enough to make:
-Take 4 slightly different photos (or re-use the same one)
Open Photoshop
-Crop them all to be a nice even size. I recommend 1000xanything for web.
-Under the layer menu run an adjustment layer called posterize, setting it to 80% and not doing anything else to it.
-Under the same menu run the gradient map. Also setting it to 80% (except for black, you'll need to use 100%).
It's important that the layers are photo at the bottom, posterize layer above that, then gradient map above that (you can just drag them around if you mess it up). Any other order looks really funny. Ps. by default, the gradient map will use the foreground colour, so set that before applying the filter.
-Once you've done that to each individual image, load them all into one document.
*Don't forget to use the "save for web" option so you can pick a PNG-8 restricted to 256 colours. Not only is it smaller and therefore quicker to upload and share around, it also lessens the toll on your system when working on that image, so you can easily listen to music at the same time XD
