I want to start trying one new tutorial for something web related (which probably will be a lot of photoshop stuff) and posting it here as a sort of learning journal, at least once a week. I do a lot of cosplay stuff but I like web design and I really should be trying new stuff out if I want to get better :)! So look out for my attempts at tutorials
For anyone who needs a placeholder image this is such a spiffy site! Just go to: http://placehold.it/ and type the size you want after the url (for example: http://placehold.it/350×150 for a 350 by 150 image) and it generates a placeholder image in that size. I swear this will save me at least a couple minutes of my life, I wish I found it earlier!
I was working on my mismagius cosplay’s hat and I came to the realization – most of my recent cosplays have some kickass hats. I also am pretty good at making them, so maybe I am made to make hats.
In other news I am on the last week of my internship at rogers publishing! It’s kind of depressing that I have to go back to having classes after i’ve had 7 weeks of the “real job” experience. I want to start life now lol! I’ve also been working on my portfolio during the down times here, since I’ll have nothing to do for a couple of hours and the humber portfolio show is coming up soon. So caracciolo.ca is getting a makeover! Check out my spiffy new logo:
And on a random side note … does everyone code really slowly? Everyone keeps telling me “thanks for doing that so quickly” or “that was fast” but I really havn’t gone that fast. I mean they said they wanted an email designed and coded as soon as possible, now to me that means in the next couple of hours but they said I had two days to do it. Maybe they just have more on their plate than I do (which wouldn’t surprise me) but it’s just weird to be called fast!
I’ve also been watching anime during the bus ride to here and this week I have gotten into Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I really enjoyed the first FMA but this one is really great, and maybe a bit darker. I had kevin watch a couple episodes with me last night and I think I got him hooked since he didn’t want to stop.
