  1. Good day, everyone! Those that remember me will find that I return from my 10 year seclusion with more life experience! And a cat that I live alone with. Those that don't will get nothing of value out of this first paragraph.

     

    I made a simple tool for plotting points on the canvas that I hadn't quite seen done the same way before. I had a need for finding particular points on an image and mousing around to read the coordinates on the bottom was tedious and less precise than I'd like. My solution was to draw a crosshair centered on whatever point you tell it. It can optionally place the [x, y] reference as an ordered pair nearby the point as well. It uses your selected Primary Color for everything.  It's great for locating points on a GUI image (if you, like me, happen to be working on modding a game that uses a single image for its GUI elements). I'm sure you could find other uses for it! Screenshots included to try and demonstrate its practical usage.

    My coding ability is mostly in the "pattern recognition" phase, but I figured there's no reason not to share it. Made in CodeLab, then migrated to VS for dynamic control over the input sliders. Please feel free to message me with coding tips and messages akin to "oh my god, I thought you were dead!"

    Thanks to the PdN Team for giving me well over a decade of entertainment in the world of photo manipulation!

  2. @ jake - wow, and that's all I can say is wow. :shock:

    @ Lego - I really like the fade effect. But... the red eyes seem a bit overemphasized.

    This is something I'm working on for "The Lava Lounge"

    We've had a few shows recently and we're nearly an official venue. :D haha

    I've taken it upon myself to make some interesting logos, the first being this.

    In the finished product, I want to use a picture of a real couch. I've got to get back to my buddy with the camera. ;)

    Any suggestions on making the letters look more realistic? :/ Perhaps my standards are too high for my current skill level, but I want (maybe even demand) that they end up looking like physical objects. Like plastic letters we just had lying around.

  3. I have a "brown-bag" speech to give on Thursday (for Speech class, of course). I'm looking forward to it. I plan on opening with an acoustic guitar in my hands... then asking whether or not anyone knows how to play the thing. 8D

    Also, I bought a hat. I am pleased with my hat, and all it's hatliness. In other news, I discovered I can fold my lips into something resembling the :3 face.

    The specially interested can see such things here and here.

    And I now have a sudden urge to learn CPR. :shock:
