I thought, “What would the glyphs look like if they had been made like the Stargate Atlantis glyphs?” So, I made them. Used Photoshop and Calligraphr.com. You’ll find them on the Font page. They’re free to use for any reason and you don’t have to ask. Don’t claim authorship. Don’t sell them. The originals belong to MGM and if you try to make money off a copyright that isn’t yours, understand that they can actually come after you.
Jack and Daniel’s Wedding Effects Wallpapers. You can see the link in the Top Menu, too. Have put up some J/D Wedding wallpapers, all the same but of differing colors. Hope you like them. They have a load time that’s annoying and I apologize for that. I had a choice between a low quality/low size and high quality/higher size. Example, 600kb vs 1.3mb.
So I’ve been working on this new fic, entitled “Acts of Vengeance”. It’s an alternate version of an old fic called “The Evil Side of Slave”. I’d reread it a few weeks back and decided it needed a rewrite but I didn’t want to remove the old one, so an alternative version was called for. While considering the next scene, I stopped to make a graphic in PS, using a watercolor mess I created in Painter. (and can I interrupt my post for a sec and complain about using an F’ing brace on my left hand while trying to type? Grrr) Anyways, I made a jpeg of my graphic and threw it into Filter Forge for a blood effect. It fits the fic plot. I may change it all later, but I like the current result. So now I’m asking for opinions. Doesn’t mean I’ll change anything. :-p I’d just like opinions. This is the beginning. The watercolor image I created in Painter was adjusted with a watercolor filter in PS to give it an edgier look. This is the filtered version after applying a bloodletting effect in Filter Forge. I realize that it’s been all covered up, but the premise of the fic is about slavery and brutality, so it needed nastiness.
Been kicking around an idea for a fic simply called Three, named for my Trio of lovely boyz. Decided to make a pic for inspiration and am using a pic painted by a guy named Steve Walker, whose website no longer exists. Glad the pic does tho. Have had this saved on the external for years. So I put the pic in Filter Forge and played with different kinds of filters. Decided on “bad copy” because the boys have a dirty job and at times, they can be particularly dirty in other ways. 🙂
