Hooray, the quarter is almost over!
I have a project final presentation in about half an hour, and then there's finals next week, but overall I'm in a pretty good mood work-wise.
Last week was pretty hectic... 2 projects and having to conduct like 12 hours of interviews over 4 days... Apologies for not being more active here and responding to all the comments! O__O!
Speaking of comments, I'm really overwhelmed by the positive feedback I've gotten with the last two tutorials! ^_^ It makes me super-happy to hear people find them useful, and I wish everyone the best of luck on all their artistic endeavors. I remember when I was just starting out and tutorials were like Candy to me... I'd eat them up! I even remember my first Really Important Photoshop Tutorial--by Charles Park, oh... like, six years ago.
He taught me the use of the multiply layer, and where would I be without that? ^^ Other significant tutorials in my earliest art days were how to make a photo-tear (not particularly useful, and I don't even have any examples of that in my gallery now, but... man! It was cool!) and how to make photos fade to white at the borders. ^^
But really, I like teaching a lot. It's a lot of fun! I did tutoring in high school, I taught beginning computer science for two years as a TA in college (now I teach these people how to teach).
It's one of the most rewarding things I've done, so expect to see new tutorials out every once in a while. I do have one in the planning right now... ^_~ ^_~
Okay, here's my question for this entry, since it's for a friend's research project:Do you know computer science and/or any programming? If so, why did you learn it, and do you think it's useful? If not, do you think it's important to learn at some point?
I'm curious to see what you guys have to say. M o o d
- Taking care of loose ends. I have like, a million unfinished things sitting on my harddrive asking to be finished... Of course, I'll get around to finishing one or two of them if I'm lucky... >D >D First up is finishing up the coloring on "Little Shy Ones." I should also post a picture of the completed "lightning girl." The things I'm itching to begin are another flash project starring Rune, and the FFVII eyes project... ^^L o v e s
