inspired by the idea of a stamp to mark the completion of.. anything. which in turn encourages people to complete more, well, stuff. *basically a ripoff of charlieissocoollike's idea*

I referred to a couple of tutorials on the web, *three of them to be exact* and came up with my own little formula of how to make a stamp in Photoshop, and in my case, Ps CS3.

The result!!

le stamp~
le stamp in action~

here's the links to the tutorials i referred too :)

numero uno!
numero dos!
and quatres!

well, the result of my 2nd semester of my 1st year as an Applied Arts and Design student was, in a word, disappointing.
I'm not really shocked, however i am deeply bummed by the digits on the result slip  that seem to mock my existence.
i think i know what went wrong.
its pretty much the same as last semester's issues. but I haven't got the slightest clue on the 'fixing it' part just yet.
here's hoping that i do. and soon.
anyways, Alhamdulillah, i am grateful.
you have to be grateful for everything, but, it doesn't mean that you have to be easily satisfied.
no sir you don't.
always aim higher, and pray to Allah during good times and bad, insyaAllah. :)

*true story, as real as it gets*

me: mami..dah tau dah result
mami: hmm
along:ak taw result hang!
me:diam ah bohonggg
me:erm,aa,sama ja ngan last sem..*.*


me : *awkward face* (inside ; D':)

p/s: kan best kalo dia at least ckp, "xpa, usaha lagi" , "at least xturun kan?". hmmm

compisition comes into play.

Another fun photoshop tutorial completed! wooohooo~
this one is from PSDVault, they have some pretty cool tutorials over there so do check it out :)

Basically this tutorial acts as a guide to creative composition, and plays mostly with layer effects, transformation and brushes. The instructions are pretty well explained but you do have to learn the basics before attempting this one because it might skip some tiny details.
Compared to the tutorial, I used more layer masks than the eraser tool because the eraser, being a permanent action, is not as flexible as the layer masks.
Layer masks allows you to alter the appearance of an image but it can easily be deleted or adjusted to your own preferences without worrying about permanent damage :D ( if anyone's interested I'll try to explain further in future entries ; drop a comment! )

So here's the final result from the artist at PSDVault

And here's mine! :)

Resources used ;
  1. model stock
  2. bird1 
  3. bird2 
  4. bird3
  5. cant remember where I downloaded the brushes from, it was so long ago LOL.

today's graphic practice.

my Photoshop's been collecting dust since this holiday started so its about time I tackle a fresh and fun tutorial~

this one's from Abduzeedo *super awesome tutorial galore*, inspired by the poster for Burlesque, which is coincidentally one of my favourite movies. *Christina Aguilera sexily belting out burlesque themed songs,hell yeah!*

so here's the actual movie poster, the final result of the tutorial, and my own result. Comments much appreciated :))

can you guess the meaning behind 910910 ;)

love is perhaps the strangest phenomenon to exist.
it can cause so much happiness one minute and leave you a soulless sobbing wreck the next.
a confusing beauty.
an addiction.

sometimes your actions are done with well intentions,
and yet sometimes that is not how it was perceived,
sometimes things we do to help,
tends to make it worse,
and when that something happens to someone who fails are consoling a friend.
well that sh*t just blows.

lost in thought,

im never sure anymore
i dont know where im headed
sometimes my heart just aches
i dont know what i want
i dont know what i need
i just want the confusion to end
the pain to stop.

until next time~

last night in Penang, tomorrow im taking off with my family to kayy ell. Its been such lovely 4 weeks. Im going to miss everyone so much. We always seem to complain about how holidays never seem to be long enough, but in a way, the short period of time we get makes us appreciate the moments that we share even more. Cant wait for the next break to come. Ill miss you Penang :p

until next time~ ;)
