More grand works to come.
  • Listening to: Crickets outside
Stock photo project has begun!


The rules:

:bulletblue: FEEL FREE TO USE MY STOCK IMAGES FOR ANYTHING!

:bulletgreen: LET ME KNOW WHERE/HOW YOU USED IT!

:bulletred: GET CREATIVE!

Seriously, that's it. My best ones are for sale, but you guys get some great shots for free, so have-ats.

Credit me, if unaltered, where you used it. I love you long time! :D

I need responses from as many people as possible on this, I'm on the fence of whether this is a worthwhile project...

I want to make a photo site / fotolia / stock section dedicated to texture photos.


Texture photos have been a huuuuge part of my gaming/recreational art, but I'm not sure if others also feel this way. I mean, textures of every form are used in media... site backgrounds, manips, games... you get the point.

My question is... would this be a profitable project? Would YOU use macro/non-macro texture photos for anything ever?

I have a shopping list worth of ideas and the resources to do it, BUT I don't want to become poor in the process. I'd charge a reasonable small fee, just to offset the travelling/camera fees. (hence why free stock photos won't fly, well maybe some would)


Do you think setting up a site and/or selling here would be decent business with 500-1000+ very high quality texture photos? :hmm:


I look forward to your thoughts!


EDIT: Nobody cares?? :( oh well

PART II.

Yes'm, it's been requested.. no, AHEM, DEMANDED.. no no, ahem PIES WITH RAZORBLADES IN THEM WERE THREATENED TO LAND IN MY FACE if I did not produce a sequel to this game.

I found a way to make high scores to work on my games without the need for a pop-up game window! Sooooo I'll be updating all my games to be played directly from dA!!!~!@$ :boogie:

Also, it might just be me, but Firefox on Mac seems to have trouble with the hi-scores and such, so use another browser if something doesnt load...

Games of all shapes and sorts are taking all my time... playing, making, eating, drinking, breathing, and well ummmm... gonna upload another for you wonderful game-playing peoples real soon.

Also wishing I had more friends that knew flash. Doing all this solo is reeeealy a headache. like. f'sure.

Now what was it I was gonna make for lunch? Oh yes possibly pizza. No wait I just ate a while ago, pizza might be too much, well maybe as just a snack I could make half of one, but who really makes half of one... maybe I'm better off just waiting till later to make one. Maybe you would like to join me in eating one, since I can't eat it all, that way I wouldn't feel guilty about making one now, it does sound delicious but I don't know...

I better wrap this up before I start rambling...

NEW GAME. OF COURSE, STUPID SIMPLE GAME. SOON.

Ello' anyone who actually reads these!

I'm working on a flash game for a contest. I have one month as of writing this to get it done and submitted, and i have a TON of work to do as far as programming goes. SOOOO.... in case im getting pressed for deadlines, i may need a hand with some of the artwork for it. (dont worry its not terribly time consuming)... It's going to be a large game so i'll need to devote most time to programming...

Basically, if you have any interest at all in lending a hand, do tell me! Doesn't mean you have anything to do, but you're just a backup resource if i need it. thx!!!!!


[If i need the help, i'll post another journal!]     :]

Hey you terrific guys and gals, I fixed up a few things on Yahtzee! If you played and couldnt upload your high scores, of if you played and couldnt play a second game, your worries should be over! If you haven't played, give it a go!

That's all for now... next game upload coming soon!

Also, it's just a maybe at this point... I MAY be taking requests for games. keyword MAY... it may turn into more work and confusion than I can handle...

Guess it's about time I do this before :iconque-ink: beats me to a pulp ^.^ :hug:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person should post 8 aleatory facts of themselves.
3. Tagged people should write a JournalBlog about these facts.
4. In the end, tag and name 8 more people.
5. Go to their DA pages and comment saying that they are tagged and hugged.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

1. I really like Flash. Gonna do it for a living one way or another.
2. <3 my kitties! they are prolly the best buddies I have right now... ^^;
3. I worship FFXI more than almost anything else in life right now :blush:
4. <3 A moonlit winters' night and/or a snowy winter day :heart:
5. I listen to bands and music that 95% of people in the U.S.  have never heard of :w00t: ..which ties into #6...
6. Can't stand being in the presence of "the typical male/female"... and you know what I mean, they're all the same... I prefer people with a smile and a PERSONALITY, not a looks-obsessed, lets-go-clubbing-every-night, dye-my-hair-blonde-every-3-days- person :giggle:
7. I would eat chicken parm and cheesecake every night if I could.
8. Probably the most stable, open-minded, anti-opinionated (usually) person you will meet. >.>

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

NOW THEN! um since I don't have 8 other people that would ever come online in the next year, Ima put a person or two who would actually do this!

:iconmooka1219: :iconshegreen: :iconkielime:

sounds good to me :3



blah I'm lonely, anyone wanna cheer me up? :(

To all my buddies and watchers on here...

After 4 months of on and off work, my rendition of Yahtzee is completed, to an acceptable degree ^^;

It took a ton of dedication and patience, so i urge you guys to try it, that would make me happy :D

=====

BUT, there is no sound controls on it (as of now), so if thats a prob, im sowwies ; ;!

On a related topic, im getting more heavily into Flash theory (hehe how professional sounding), so I will be uploading more gigantic stuff on here... which means... it'll be 3 months in between each upload lol >.>

I'm hoping I can do Flash crap for a living sometime soon, but I gotta get better first ^^ all right!

Anyways, expect this first game up in the next day or two, as i make sure i didn't majorly feck something up bigtime :D :dance:

...till next time! <3~

EeeEeeEee!  After a long time, I'm only 38k exp away from my first lvl 75 job on FFXI!~ WHM POWER. :D

Even then... why is it so hard finding help for mission 5-1??? People should want to help others who need it... I've been stuck on that mission for lets see.... a good part of a year.... oh well, if there's a will there's a way.

Hmm after this it's either gonna be BLM (which I said I would leave at lvl 37 but idk), or continue on BST, which has to be the hardest job in the game, but hey it's a ton of fun if you actually get the hang of how its done.

-----

In other news, for friggin sake, gimme the damn job i've been after for let's see... going on a month now. Either they're still deciding if I deserve the job, they're just slowpokes, or they've given the job away already, in which case I will be forced to /slap them and probably enjoy it. Oh well.  *still crosses fingies*

------

I don't know whats up, maybe just because it's summer, but I've a complete and utter energy drain from doin absolutly ANYTHING, like I can't find inspiration to do anything I'm even interested in!!! and its ANNOYING!! :( does anyone else have this problem? and if so, whats the friggin remedy????   *Calls a GM for help* :fear:  But if I do get a burst of motivation... I'll be postin pics on here! yippeeeee!

Mental meltdown....

.... that be all for now
