Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Sweet dreams and [CHAT] machines, in pieces on the ground.

    You know what I just realized... that some people try to abuse you. But there are others that want to be abused.

    Indian people are annoying to draw. There I said it.

    Pixel art is also freaking difficult.

    Perhaps I should learn colour theory first. Or how to draw from imagination at all.

    New resolution: try and draw something from imagination at least once a week.

    hey any of you guys know about GIMP? I'm trying to create an outline around some text ala this tutorial
    http://gimpology.com/submission/view/how_to_outline_text
    but I can't work out how to select the text I've created. I get as far as "open tool options and click Create Path Along Text" but that option isn't appearing for me.

    If you'd like an anime thread, please PM me to discuss it. Include pics/video of your favorites.

    Make your text layer, use the color select tool (it's a finger pointing to a blue, red, and green bar), and click one of the letters (directly on the letter, not the space around it).

    Go to select->invert in the menu. Pick your border color and go to edit->fill with FG color.

    Now go to select->shrink, input the size of border you want, and whack enter (or click the OK button).

    Now press delete. A border!

    edit: Though that ends up looking a bit ugly. I'll run through that tutorial again and see if I can help you figure out the part you got stuck on.

    that's awesome, thank you! the border I've made is a bit jaggy but I can piss around with it a bit and fix it I'm sure

    Here's how to add a tool options tab though. It's essential to know how to do this if you're using GIMP.

    You can also drag a tab to that little bar just above the arrow to dock it.

    It took me a while to figure GIMP out, and I'm still learning new things. I haven't read any of them, but I do know books have been written about it.

    Man, ya know what kinda sucks?

    On Thursday I finally made it into Boston, specifically Allston, to visit a friend. Actually he was the only friend of mine, of which there are very few, who actually wanted to hang out, and made the fucking time to do so. Up until then, I hadn't had any physical contact with any of my friends in six months. Six fucking months! It was a pretty great day overall. I hung out with my buddy, Dave. We had sesame chicken from Canton for lunch (a particular dish I've been jonesing for in a big way, for as many months.) Then we picked up a 12 pack of PBR (I know that its shit, but its cheap and it gets the job done eventually), and just hanged out at his apartment; shooting the shit, catching up, and sharing hilarious videos we've found online.

    Dave is equally shameless, and brutally honest about whatever the fuck is on his mind, just like me. Neither one of us gives a shit what anyone else thinks about what we say, or think, which are usually one in the same.

    The whole thing was refreshing, and cathartic. It was something that I super fucking needed. But now I want to go back into the city again. Like, immediately. I was starved of physical contact with any of my few friends for half a year, and I got a brief buzz off of hanging out for a few hours. Now I feel like I need another social fix in a big, big way. its almost maddening.

    I miss the few friends in that area I had made. I actually feel sick being isolated against my will, like I am. I almost wish I hadn't gone into the city, and had a great fucking day, because now I want more.

    Subject? I don't have any specific subject, most of the time. I try to force myself to draw specific things from time to time, but generally I'm content if I can just sit and draw anything at all.

    Today, though, I'm feeling very frustrated, and unsatisfied with anything I manage to scribble.

    I'm sure alot of it has to do with the above post.

    EDIT - Actually, I guess there is a specific subject. I'm drawing caterpillars. That counts, right?

  • NicNic Registered User
    edited January 2010
    Yeah, pretty sure that counts! Sometimes when I'm frustrated with what I'm drawing, I'll try to draw something else for awhile.

    Why are you isolated against your will?

    Ha! I can top all of you fuckers now.

    I have this dream last night. I'm just sitting around minding my own business. And then somehow, I find this package. Like a big shipping envelope, and it's open, so I peek inside. It looks like a document of some kind. Except it's printed on...linen?? Twenty or thirty sheets of linen, cut into maybe 10-20" pieces.

    So I pull out this document which is printed on linen and I start to read it. It's a memo. From Tube to I think the moderators. Ornate stitching and calligraphy head each paragraph. I can't remember the content. Something about an accident or a tragedy or something. Any way, in walks tube.

    Except I don't know what tube actually looks like so what I see in my dream is like this hedgehog-faced body builder guy. And then he started yelling at me and beating me up with a guitar, and that was when I woke up.

    Bah! I lost my job back in February. Wasn't able to find anything stable in the meanwhile. Couldn't afford even the most meager of bills. Lease was going to end anyway. So August first I had to pack up my shit, and move back in with my mum, grandma, and little sister in the inbred, backwards-ass town of Norwood, where I went to high school. Even as small as this backwards podunk town is, we still manage to live on the outskirts. I say 'isolated,' but its not like I'm in fucking Siberia, or one of the Poles. Although I'd probably prefer any of those places above this shit-hole. Its nothing but a small suburban town, with delusions of grandeur, and backwards fucking politics. It has zero to fucking offer, and is full of inbred 'native' families. Its just that there's nothing of substance here, and even if there were, I'd have no way of getting there anyway.
